Damn These Promo Webtoons!!!(ಥ﹏ಥ)

Damn These Promo Webtoons!!!(ಥ﹏ಥ)

Why hello BAYOG Fam! It’s me again! I really am trying to get back into blogging again. The bros are still preoccupied with life and personal stuff. So in the meantime, I’ll be doing my best to keep y’all entertained~ I As ya know, ya girl is on that quarantine life. I’ve continued reading different manga/manhwa, webtoons, and webnovels to pass the time. Again, I’ve read over 300+ titles. I stopped keeping count, but I’m sure it might be around 400+ at this point??

(ಥ﹏ಥ)

I’m always excited and so happy to find a new and interesting series. Especially when the art is hella pretty and the story seems so intriguing. You know when you get to that point where you’re set on following this story. You’re hella excited for what’s to come next? Yeah…then I find out that it’s a one shot promo for a webnovel. Ya know what sucks? When it happens like 15 times in a row. Like damn. Why you gotta get my hopes up like that?? Don’t do me dirty like that!(ಥ﹏ಥ)

Actually this is actually how I first got into webnovels. Again, the stories and characters seemed super interesting. So I really wanted to know what happened next. And again, I’ve been out of things to read since I’m always caught up on everything. Now I’m reading a couple dozen webnovels as well. Remember, this is a big crazy deal for me. I typically don’t like reading novels. I’ve always preferred things with visuals. Don’t get me wrong, these webnovels have been surprisingly enjoyable! Still, I do prefer webtoon adaptations. I just enjoy looking at art hehe~ Also, the webtoon adaptations tend to be a bit more light-hearted and full of cute and funny little jokes.

Although, there have been one or two instances where the series got picked up for an actual webtoon series adaptation. I get hella happy about that. I just wished there were webtoon adaptations for the ones I really, really liked. Although, I will say that some of these series have very odd…almost WTF kind of titles… I’mma also mention that often times the art for the promo webtoon and the webtoon series is usually by different artists. I’ve noticed that for the most part, the promo art tends to be more detailed and hella gorgeous. Although the webtoon series typically has some good art too.

Me looking for fluff, but suddenly smacked with 5-6 chapters of smut….

Also, I will say that I did in fact read some of the webnovel versions hehe~ There is definitely way more detail and context in the webnovels than the webtoons. Some of them were really good~ Although it seems a couple of them got some smut…Sometimes it’s uh…um…very…uh…detailed…for several chapters…… I was here for fluff…I was not prepared for 5 whole freakin’ chapters of detailed smut…

I prefer fluff though…but the stories and characters were still really interesting~ But yeah…uh…while the novels are really fun and interesting, some of the novels are definitely NSFW y’all. Seriously, some of these get a little TOO spicy very suddenly….

**Trigger Warning: Some of these series do have themes or scenarios with: violence, abuse, and rape. I’ll do my best to label those for you. However, I do apologize as I’m not super far in all of the series. I also haven’t read all of the webnovels. So I might not have come across those yet, or don’t have enough context to post a warning from the promos.

Here are some webnovel based webtoons I liked:

  • [Remarried Empress]
    **Trigger warning: Mental abuse (?); I’d consider the shit Sovieshit does to Navier is mental abuse?
    Y’all know I love this. [Heinley is best boy], and Kapmen got me feelin’ all soft. Despite the hella rage you feel from the stupidity and trashiness of Trashta and Sovieshit, it’s actually an interesting series.
  • [Beware of the Villainess!][Official – English]
    This is such a refreshing take on a villainess redemption story. It’s just hilarious AF. It’s got all the memes too LOL The female lead is really spunky and doesn’t take bullshit…and I love that.
  • [Contract Concubine]
    I love this. It’s so funny. I also love how different the female lead is. She’s smart and a badass assassin. It’s refreshing that she’s not actually some ditsy lovelorn chick. Rather, she’s indifferent and oblivious to the fact that all these dudes be attracted to her. She’s too busy focusing on her mission.
  • [The Twin Siblings’ New Life]
    **Trigger Warning: Physical and mental abuse, child abuse
    This is an interesting take on a reincarnation series. It’s interesting because it’s with twins. It’s heartbreaking that they had to endure abuse. However, it’s so wholesome to see their father and brothers really embrace them and try to make them feel loved. It’s stupid cute, and I love it. After reading so much stuff that’s been hella dark and stressful, my heart needed some wholesome moments.
  • [The Reason Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke’s Mansion][Official – English]
    I think this was one of the first webnovel based webtoons I started when we first went into quarantine. I just like how Raeliana isn’t just some dumb, helpless, and airheaded female lead. She’s actually pretty smart and can be spunky. I like the characters too. Sir Adam Taylor ain’t even a romantic lead, just a side character. However, I just adore him haha~ It’s a fun series with some good comedy to it.
  • [The Villainess Reverses the Hourglass][Official – English]
    It’s a villainess story. Though this is interesting because the female lead isn’t necessarily trying to turn over a new leaf. The “heroine” is actually pretty evil, and you come to understand the villainess’ circumstances. It’s interesting because the female lead is super smart, cunning, and witty. She’s just ultimately using her villainous ways to avoid the destruction her white lotus step-sister had planned. I read the novel for this one. It was interesting. Although the webtoon definitely cuts out some details. This is one of the series where it’s not really about good vs evil. Rather it’s a battle between one who is evil, and one who is more evil. It’s good if you like revenge stories, and stories focused more on battle of one’s smarts and wit.
  • [Inso’s Law/Law of Webnovels][Official – English]
    It’s a fun and interesting isekai(?) series. In a way it kind of vaguely reminded me of [Extra-Ordinary You]. It’s a fun and interesting one because it’s one of those “the supporting character is actually the lead” kind of stories. Also, bishiesssss~ Bishies everywhere~~~ Hehehe~ I have hella second lead feels though. The whole series has alot of comedy too haha~ It’s one of the few more contemporary series I’ve read during quarantine. This is one where I’ve actually read some of the webnovel as well.
  • [A False Confession][Official – English]
    I just really like the art for this?! It almost reminds me of some kind of Korean or Japanese fantasy RPG. To be honest, I don’t normally care for magic type of series. Still, this was fun to read so far. Also…bishiessssssss~ YAAASSSS~
  • [The Villainess Lives Twice]
    **Trigger Warning: Physical and mental abuse
    This is another villainess redemption kind of series. It’s a bit similar to The Villainess Reverses the Hourglass in that the female lead still uses her villainous ways. The female lead here is also super intelligent and cunning. It’s just nice to have a female lead that’s not completely good or a complete airhead. Also, the male lead!! I love a story where the male lead is actually a gentleman and not a douche. He’s a good guy with fantastic brows LOL Anyways, I stan an actually intelligent and competent female lead. Of course I also stan the incredibly kind, just, and sweet bishie that is the male lead too. I like this one in that the female lead is a bit different. She recognizes her villainous deeds and crimes. She’s set on putting things on a better path. However, because she recognizes her villainous deeds, she also believes she has no right to forgiveness or happiness. I like the aspect that she does feel some responsibility.
  • [I’ll Do That Marriage]
    **Trigger Warning: Suicide
    This is basically an isekai/reincarnation romance series? Basically the protagonist finds herself reincarnated as the sister of the female lead in a novel. In the novel, their father sent her sister to help the emperor who was cursed with insomnia. The women in their family are gifted with the ability to put people to sleep with just a touch. The emperor fell for her sister. However, her sister already had a lover, and was determined to run off with him. Unfortunately, her power greedy father murdered her lover. Heartbroken, she killed herself. The emperor then put an end to their whole family. To avoid the bad ending, the protagonist goes in sister’s place. Overall, it’s an interesting series so far. It’s actually got some comedy, and the scary emperor has a bit of a cute side to him. What I like about this is how the protagonist and her siblings genuinely love and care about each other. Most of these kinds of series portray sibling relationships as being pretty bad, as it’s usually about power struggle. However, this was a pretty nice change.
  • [A Villain Is a Good Match For a Tyrant][Official – English]
    This was yet another series that I had in the other list, but suddenly found out they did in fact release an actual webtoon series. This one is just super funny so far. It’s also another pretty chill and easy read. It’s another one that I’ve been reading the webnovel of too. You basically got this weak, un-favored, and mild-mannered princess. She’s been forced and sent off to marry the Emperor, who is infamously known as a bloody tyrant. She figures that since she’s gonna die anyway, she’s gonna throw a show. She basically acts like a haughty spoiled bride who won’t get down unless the Emperor gets her himself. She figured “If I’mma die, I’ll make a fuss so that the assholes at home are fucked over too!” Unexpectedly, the Emperor finds her very charming. So in order for her to survive, the Emperor has her continue putting on an act of a villainous Empress who has the bloody tyrant wrapped around her finger.
  • [I Am The ExGirlfriend Of A Soldier]
    Wow originally put this in the other list, only to go to online and see there’s an actual webtoon series for it now. Just freshly released. Woot woot. Anyways, this is pretty funny haha. It’s an isekai/reincarnation series where the protagonist is born as the female lead of a romance novel. She’s basically the girlfriend of the hero, a soldier. However, being the hero’s lover isn’t easy. She’s been constantly kidnapped. Her boyfriend is always flirting with other women, even during rescue missions when she’s kidnapped. Trying to change him was fruitless, and she’s just done with his shit. So she breaks up with him and is just trying to live her best life and find someone who loves only her. Little does she know that her new love is…the demon king??
  • [The Youngest Princess][Official – English]
    This is a reincarnation series. It’s one of those cute family type of series too. Basically you got a powerful magician suddenly born as the princess of bloody tyrant in another empire. It’s fun and cute though, cuz she basically ends up having the bloody tyrant and princes wrapped around her finger. They just absolutely adore her. I love seeing these dudes who seem hella scary to other people do hella cute shit for the princess.
  • [The Monster Duchess And The Contract Princess]
    **Trigger Warning: Physical and mental abuse, child abuse
    This is one of those heart-warming family stories that can get pretty cute. It’s sad because the protagonist is severely mistreated by her family. They literally tried to kill her as a sacrifice. She ends up surviving and tries to do what she can in order to survive. Thus she makes a contract with the notorious Monster Duchess. Through the contract, she is adopted and protected by the family so she can survive. In exchange for that, she provides them with the strong dark power she’s acquired. However, her new family starts to genuinely care for her. They end up really being a loving family. It’s cute. Super funny and cuuuute~

Here are some of the promo webtoons that I wish were a full series:

  • [The Kind Older Sister Is No More]
    Trigger Warning: Mental abuse, hella gaslighting
    Excuse me! I really, really, realllllllyyyy wish this one would be a webtoon. Like for reals. It’s such an interesting story. The promo seems confusing cuz it lacks the full details, but I’ve really enjoyed the novel so far. Plus, I stan a sane, supportive, kind, righteous, loyal, and smart male lead. Too many webnovels got some fucked up male leads. I whole-heartedly welcome a wholesome male lead. Please…for my sanity… This is one of the novels I get excited for new chapters~
  • [I Met The Male Lead In Prison]
    **Trigger Warning: Physical and mental abuse, child abuse
    This is an isekai series. It’s just interesting so far, and hilarious. I like how the way it was written just feels very casual to read? I’m still in the beginning-ish of the novel. I’ve really enjoyed it so far. It’s really funny and entertaining. However, it’s isekai where the female protagonist finds herself in a 19+ novel…so it’s probably gonna be a bit spicy later and NSFW.
  • [The Precious Sister of the Villainous Grand Duke]
    **Trigger warning: Some child abuse
    This is a reincarnation/isekai series. It’s been super funny and cute so far. It’s been another kinda casual feel and enjoyable read. This is one of the webnovels I get super excited to read whenever there’s a chapter update. It’s really cute so far. Also, it’s not incest. The protagonist was basically a baby from another family. She was basically abandoned/unloved, and kidnapped by the villain’s mother. Everyone assumed the baby was hers. Female lead was basically reincarnated into this novel. Anyway she’s brought into the villain’s family where there are a ton of kids who basically hunger games it out for the successor position. The protagonist, who is mentally an adult and aware of the novel’s plot, knows that her “brother” will end up becoming the successor. Therefore, she decides to try to win his favor in order to survive.
  • [My Sister Picked Up The Male Lead]
    **Trigger Warning: Physical and mental abuse, child abuse
    This is an isekai/reincarnation series. It’s been fun so far. I’m only at the beginning though. However, this is one I also really, really want to see as a webtoon series. Basically the protagonist finds herself reincarnated as the sister of a minor character in a novel. Though the sister is a minor character, she plays an important role to the male lead. The male lead is cursed and his body changes to that of a child. The sister finds this kid in the middle of the forest, brings him home, and takes care of him. She essentially becomes his first love, but she’s gonna die and set certain events for the male lead. The protagonist wants to save her sister and avoid the unfortunate events for them. However, she ends up unintentionally gaining the male lead’s favor instead.
  • [I’ll Become The Tyrant’s Tutor]
    **Trigger Warning: Physical and mental abuse, child abuse
    It’s an isekai/reincarnation series. This one just seemed so freakin’ interesting. Also, the art for the promo was gorgeous. This was one that made me hellaaaa sad that there wasn’t more to the webtoon. This is another one that I truly wished would get picked up for a webtoon series.
  • [The Obsessive Second Male Lead Has Gone Wild]
    I have no idea what the context of this promo was. All I know was there was a bishie and I got some questions. So yeah, I would like to continue seeing blushing bishie please.
  • [A Fairy Tale For Villains]
    **Trigger Warning: Physical and mental abuse, child abuse
    It’s one of those stories that show the villains’ circumstances. It’s a revenge story. The webtoon promo seemed interesting, and I already added the webnovel onto my reading list as well.
  • [Dear My Friend]
    I dunno about y’all, but one of the things that gets me to push through a series is my need to see justice. If there are annoying AF characters who’ve hella wronged the lead, I’mma need them to get what’s coming to them. I can’t stand white lotus characters. This is also currently on my To Read list.
  • [The Planned First Kiss]
    Another case of me not really knowing what’s going on, but I wanna know. Although it’s pretty obvious that “servant” is the emperor. Definitely adding it to my reading list whenever someone picks up translating the novel.
  • [I Don’t Want the Obsession of a Twisted Archduke]
    It’s one of those “the male lead seems like a cold and cruel asshole”, but he’s probably just hella tsundere. I started the webnovel. It’s still in the beginning though. This is another one of those isekai/reincarnation series. The protagonist is basically the author of the novel that she got isekai-ed into though.
  • [I’m the Main Protagonist From Today]
    I dunno about y’all, but one of the things that gets me to push through a series is my need to see justice. If there are annoying AF characters who’ve hella wronged the lead, I’mma need them to get what’s coming to them. I can’t stand white lotus characters. So yeah. Also I’m a sucker for those stories where it’s like villainous dude is actually a sweet dude. Although, that’s a very common theme for these novels…

Some of these are officially published in English. (Edit: I’ll be editing and adding links for any official releases) However, many of them are currently not. Those and the webnovels are currently fan translated online. As much as I’d love to directly share exactly where I’ve read them, I’ll refrain from posting links here. Your girl wants to continue reading her series. I don’t want another Remarried Empress webnovel incident where translators got caught and issued orders to stop… All I’ll say is good luck finding them on Mangadex, NovelUpdates, WordExcerpt, or wherever online…. I gave you breadcrumbs to find ’em on your own… Just don’t be postin’ them on SNS like Instagram. That’s how we get projects pulled fam… I am noticing that several of the webtoons are starting to get picked up officially though. So keep an eye out fam. Don’t forget to support the author when you can, whether it’s buying the raws or the official translations.

These were only several out of a hella long list. To be honest, I was never one to like reading novels. Again, I always preferred comics, anime, movies, and dramas. However, this pandemic and quarantine really got me finding a new hobby. So here I am, reading webnovels in between my webtoons, manga, and manhwa series. To be honest, I really, really, realllllyyy like some of these stories. Sadly, I’ve only gotten my friends into the Remarried Empress webtoon AND webnovel so far. I need someone to rant to about some of these other series though. Cuz daaaayuuuuuuuuummmmmm~~ Anyways, have y’all been reading any webnovels or light novels? Have you come across any of these series before? What are your thoughts? Which ones did you like? Got any recommendations? Or come discuss these series with meeee~

BE SAFE. BE RESPONSIBLE.
WASH YOUR HANDS. WEAR A MASK.
SOCIAL DISTANCE. PLEASE.

임창균 아이엠 GIF - 임창균 아이엠 화이팅 GIFs

Take care y’all. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. All jokes and fun aside…please, please, please, pleaaaase always wash your hands, practice social distancing, and wear a mask! I’m serious. Please take COVID-19 seriously. It truly is a matter of life and death. It’s something that needs to be taken seriously. It’s not just about the death of if you or someone you know gets it, but it also heavily affects those left behind. There are also aftereffects for those who are able to get through COVID-19. Be responsible. Be safe. Take care y’all. Have a wonderful day.


BLACK LIVES MATTER

This is a difficult, but necessary matter to address. I’m not good at putting things into words, so I apologize. We all know the matter regarding the unjust murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many others. The current Black Lives Matter protests are being covered globally. I’ve even seen it being covered daily by the Thai news. Racism is a very real thing. Being Asian, I’ve personally encountered bullshit racism on a daily basis. So I can relate and understand the struggles. However, I’m also aware of how much more difficult and blatant it is for black POC. AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation. Make sure to have those conversations. Aside from donating, I had several conversations with my family. I explained things to my parents, especially since some news stories were being reported inaccurately. I was afraid it’d be a bit difficult. However, as fellow POC and human beings, it was a necessary conversation. My parents and grandma understand, and now stand on the same page regarding BLM as well. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

You can also check out the following:

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.
