Tales of The Unusual The Best Thriller Webtoon
This Webtoon is written by Seongdae Oh. Started in 2013 and updated every wednesday in LINE Webtoon.
Tales of the Unusual is on of the most popular web series in thriller and horror genre. This webtoon has every aspect needed to be thrilling and creepy. Unlike other webtoon, Tales of the Unusual is a set of many mini stories that provide reader story about strange things, tales, story about rituals, ghost, and many more.
The Author has the talent to write an interesting thriller and horror story. He not only show the thrilling feel but also each story has the moral lesson that exists in our society.
He write many type of horror story. For example a fantasy horror story which titled “The Gallery of The Damned“. This story is one of my favorite. The story about bullying that happen in school. So there is a rumour going around if you really want to kill someone and has intense desire to kill, you put a photo of the one you want to kill under your pillow and then you will dream opening the gallery of the damned. You put the photo in the gallery and the next morning rip the photo under the pillow to kill the person. But unfortunately the story did not have a happy ending. This story telling us about bullying that always happen in our society.
Another example simple ghost story which titled “Ghost Hunting“. This story is about a family that happen to buy a house id a cheap price and the house happens to be haunted. The ghost want to take over their body.
And the author also write a drama story that has horror feels in it which titled “My Wife’s Memories”. The story begin when the wife died from fire burn their house. After the incident, the husband always see a ghost that looks like his wife. That ghost is the memories of the wife before she died 3 years ago, his wife has dementia that ghost is her memories. So after knowing that fact, the husband retire from his job and everyday follows the wife ghost. After he follws the ghost everyday he realize how lovely his wife was and he regrets did not spend more time with her. I really think the author is very genius. He can make horror story to be this beautiful and heartwarming.
That is just some example of many stories in the webtoon. I guarantee You will not get bored with the story. Altough sometimes the story sound absurd but it has a great plot story. The story is playing with our mind and has it own ways to make the reader feels thrilling and creepy experience.
The problem in the story is maybe sometime the story is happen to be just a simple horror story and do not has any meaning in it. And also some story is dragged too long and make the reader already know how the story will end. Overall this webtoon is super awesome and Worth reading.
I give this piece of art 5 stars from 5.
