Weekly Manga/Manhwa Recommendation #3 - Evyione 1: Ocean Fantasy by Kim Young-Hee

Evyione 1: Ocean Fantasy

by Kim Young-Hee

Remember the tale of the little mermaid that fell in love with the dashing human prince? Now, imagine the roles reversed, as a romance blooms between the beautiful Evyione and a dashing young merman. It's a unique twist on timeless tale that is sure to leave you spellbound.


WOW. The illustrations are SO beautiful!!! The art in this manhwa is jaw-dropping.
Really, the artwork is absolutely fantastic. Drool-worthy.
No, I am not repeating myself, I am just THAT impressed by it.
A deliciously handsome (and long-haired. Did I mention he has the most amazing long hair? Please ignore my mini hair-fetish attack.) merman, Yaxin, King of Ledent, falls in love with a human princess. Really, old Ariel has NOTHING on him!!!

This is a beautiful tale of love and hurt. I couldn't help but keep on cheering for our yummy merman, Yaxin. He gave everything up to pursue the woman of his dreams, Evyione.

Evyione is the princess of a country called Embonia. On the night of her 18th birthday she fell from her ship into the sea and was rescued by Yaxin, who leaves her on the shore. She is rescued by another man who returns her to her country, but she can't forget the beautiful long hair of the man she saw that night... and then he appears on her castle, nude, mute and wet. Woo-hoo!

What a sight. But many problems arise for our poor merman, after all, at that time period people didn't take the appearance of strange naked men very well. Specially if they can't read, speak or even stand, let alone walk. (he just came out of the sea and got his legs, guys, give him a break!)

Unfortunately only two volumes were released in the USA, but they are so beautiful, such unbelievably gorgeous gems... how can we ever get enough? Come on, Udon Entertainment! Entertain us some more!!!

Here you can see the two posters that accompany the printed versions of the manhwa. Tell me they're not to die for!

I found this really great post on Why You Should Read Evyione (and want more).

Trust me, you won't regret getting these manhwa.
