Manhwa, by the way, is a blanket term for Korean comics, comic books (aka mangas), and animated cartoons. Moving on. According to Korea Times, “[t]he Korea Culture and Content Agency (KOCCA) will hold the 2009 Korean Comics Special Exhibition Feb. 2-7 at the Korean Culture Centre in Paris, France, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the genre”.
I guess if you’re in Paris vicinity, go check it out! Personally, I’m not a fan of Korean manhwa (I’ve been Japanised too much), but it has its merits! One day, I’ll get into them. I did like Demon Diary if that counts, haha. But 100 years? Wow. I obviously do not know my Korean manhwa history!
