Webcomic / Nineteen, Twenty-One

Go To

A lavishly illustrated webcomic, Nineteen, Twenty-One tells the sweet story of two people trying to find themselves as they face some of life's most difficult transitions.

A young woman named Yun-lee reawakens from a coma to find her world completely changed, and struggles to come to terms with the time she has lost. Nevertheless she enrolls in university, and meets a cheerful nineteen-year-old, Dong-whi, who shares her uncertainty about the future. Despite all the hardships that face them, the two decide to fly in the face of mediocrity and apathy to save a dwindling group of friends. Who also happen to be cats. Because, to these two, felines are Serious Business.

Don't be put off by the tag that labels this work as a Romance — there is something in this story for everyone.

This completed webcomic is written by "John", illustrated by "Jenna", a.k.a Zhena, and can be found at Naver here.

A 2-volume physical version was once published in France under the title 18-20note  but is now out of print.

This work provides example of:

  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: Subverted. Dong-whi asks, after he and Yun-lee got mistaken for a couple, what was wrong with it and admits that he likes her.
  • Snow Means Love: It's snowing when Yun-lee and Dong-whi finally kiss and admit their feelings for each other.
  • Umbrella of Togetherness: Teased with. Eventually Yun-lee gives her umbrella to the cats and runs off with both Dong-whi's coat and his newly bought umbrella.
