윤태호 (Yun T'ae Ho)

About Yun T'ae Ho


윤태호 (Yun T'ae ho) is Korea’s leading webtoon writer and manhwa artist in South Korea. Many of his works became a social phenomenon in South Korea, which was made into a drama and movie. Growing up in an underprivileged household, Yun faced many disadvantages and discriminations throughout his life. The only thing that sustained him was his drawings. From his experience, he observed how humans function in the social system, and applied his view of Korean society to his work.
