Manhwa: Rure
Rure is a Manhwa by Seo Moon Da Mi. The first volume was first published in 2003 in South Korea and later on in the US in 2007 by Tokyo Pop. The series is still currently ongoing.

Shin Ha-Ru is an Ordinary High-School Student attending a boarding school in Seoul who possessed latent psychic abilities ever since she was a child. One day her half sister Mi-Ru arrives in Seoul to bring her back home to attend a traditional festival. When they return home it is revealed that Ha-Ru in in fact the heir to the entire Island and the local fishing business and that Mi-Ru is the illegitimate daughter of their father and not all that like by most of her family or even the townspeople. On the night of the festival, their father official names Ha-Ru his heir and disinherits Mi-Ru. Mi-Ru, feeling that no one really cares about her runs off seeking to take her life. Ha-Ru, probably the only person in the world who does care about Mi-Ru, runs after her. As they leap over the cliff and into the water the find themselves somewhere else.

The Somewhere else in question seems to be a very straightforward Middle Eastern Fantasy world albite one with three moons in the sky They eventually find a mercenary by the name of Kyu Ya and through a slight misunderstanding, Ha-Ru unintentionally sells Mi-Ru into slavery for some water. Desperate to get her back, she tries to bargain with Kyu Ya and eventually winds up in a duel. In the aftermath, Ha-Ru finds herself as Kyu Ya's "slave" as well. But Kyu Ya turns out to be a kind master and the rest of the series details their adventures together.

Note: This is being written by someone who has only read the first three volumes is someone has more to add, feel free—-
