Buying manhwa's

Post by Sakari » Oct 26th, '08, 15:40

I had the idea of trying to learn (at least) some Korean by reading manhwa's. However, Korean online bookshops always seem to require a Korean residence registration number when ordering, and I, living in Europe, of course do not have one. Would anyone know of a shop that does send stuff to customers outside Korea?

Erm... you can find RAW manhwa's online to download.

Thank you, but... I checked out HanBooks a while ago, and while they accept European customers, it seems unnecessarily complicated to order Korean stuff from the US. I mean - why not direct from Korea?

Also, HanBook prices are pretty high. A 22-volume set of Tazza is USD318 (books 300, shipping 18 ). The same set from a store in Korea is USD191 (books 92, shipping 99). But the Korean shop does not accept European customers...

The only Korean store that I have found this far that does (accept European customers) is http://www.seoulselection.com. I did, in fact, place an order with them last week.
