Winter Woods – Book Review / Korean Webtoon Review

[Author’s Note: This is both a spoiler in some ways and yet not at all a spoiler. Because I myself am only a few chapters in. So, if anything, I consider any information I’ve revealed about the story a mere glimpse into what it might really be about.]


Winter Woods Manhwa Review by Written By A Moody Pen. @WOLIWAIS. One of the stories I’m currently reading is Winter Woods, a manhwa I came across by accident rather than by any reference. At the moment, the story’s progressing pretty slowly. And I’ve not even gotten half-way through it. But it’s damn interesting. (My penchant for tales with a deep psychological bent helps too.) So. Here’s what I got so far: It’s about an immortal “Frankenstein’s Monster” type character, who is alive in every scientific sense except one — He has no heartbeat. Emotionally and psychologically, though, one could almost say he isn’t alive at all. For, he reacts to external stimuli, but he has no idea what emotions are. He feels pain, but it looks as though he is just startled by it, even when subjected to it in extremes. In a sense, he is like a child who has no moral compass whatsoever, or any social context. There’s no bias, no preconceived notions, no visible sense of right or wrong; there’s just curiosity. And it just makes the whole story so wonderfully nuanced! There’s also plenty here to hint at past abuse and neglect, both from the being’s creator as well as from the scientists who found him and experimented on him for a while. In fact, this entire thing starts as a way for one of these current scientists/researchers to test out whether or not he could be brought “truly” alive — that is, both physically and emotionally alive. And the only one who isn’t aware of the scheme is the one they’ve deemed fit to be exposed to him and get him “alive”. (And, this person’s a writer, by the way. One who took him in because it looked like he had an interesting story she could get at. She is also the one who named him “Winter Woods”, as he told her that he had no name when they first met.) Aside from that, there’s a serial killer in their midst whose trend might be mercy killings and suicide requests — but that’s not been fully confirmed yet. There is also a kind, blind woman who is in love with that serial killer but doesn’t find out about his “job” until later chapters. And there are other characters, backstories, and ominous foreshadowings sprinkled liberally throughout the story as well. Hence, at the moment, with so much going on in the story already, I’m really enjoying it.

Unintentional Impressions

Flash Fiction: "You can't make friends with a ghost! Someone you know nothing about! Someone so different . . . ! Good grief, now I really do sound racist."

“You can’t make friends with a ghost! Someone you know nothing about! Someone so different . . . ! Good grief, now I really do sound racist.”

Considering Recreational Activities

Flash Fiction: "What would you Do with a Ghost for a friend anyway?" "Don't know. Go to a cafe?" "Ghosts can eat?" "Don't know...A movie then!"

 

“What would you Do with a Ghost for a friend anyway?”

“Don’t know. Go to a cafe?”

“Ghosts can eat?”
