A New Adventure Awaits: The Golden Forest Takes Readers on a Thrilling Journey
The Golden Forest is a webcomic (which is now available in physical book form!) that has captured our attention like few others have in recent memory. From the first panel to the latest chapter, we have been absolutely hooked on the story of Reniae, a young slave girl who has been blessed (or cursed) by the goddess Inanna.
But as Reniae comes to learn, this blessing is more of a curse than anything else. It grants her the ability to charm men, to bend them to her will with little more than a glance. And while this may sound like a powerful gift to have, it has made Reniae's life a living hell. Many men have attempted to use and abuse her, forced to do their bidding without regard for her well-being.
So when Reniae decides to run away to the mountains in the north, it's not hard to see why. She's tired of being a pawn in someone else's game, tired of being at the mercy of others. And so she takes on a new identity, pretending to be a boy in order to avoid attention.
It's in the mountains that Reniae stumbles upon Kun, a young man who is near death after being attacked. Despite the danger involved, Reniae decides to help him, nursing him back to health for several days. It's a decision that will change her life forever.
What we find particularly impressive about The Golden Forest is the attention to detail that the creator, Yoon So-Rie (illustrated by Ryuhwa and webcomic adapted by Gyeonji), have paid to world-building. From the differences between the Golden Forest and the White Mountains to the mythology that underpins the entire story, there is a wealth of lore to explore in this manhwa. And while the story is primarily a romance, plenty of other elements are also at play, making for a rich and layered reading experience.
Overall, we highly recommend The Golden Forest to anyone who is looking for a new webcomic to sink their teeth into. Its compelling characters, intricate world-building, and engaging story make it a truly unique reading experience that shouldn't be missed.
