Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
To say that Chun Hyang, the 14-year-old heroine of The Legend of Chun Hyang, is a strong female character would be an understatement. Employing a martial arts style that would make a whirling dervish proud, she fights the good fight against the corrupt Yang Ban (ruler) of her town. Since it is death to lay hands on the Yang Ban, Chun Hyang contents herself with beating up his guards and wishing that the Am-Hang-Osa, a mysterious official with the power of judge, jury and executioner, will come to her little village. Unfortunately, the only person who does arrive is Mong Ryong, occupation "traveler," whose hobbies include eating, loafing and hiding at the first hint of danger. Wall Mae, Chun Hyang's mother, thinks Mong Ryong a charming young man; Chun Hyang thinks Mong Ryong an oaf, and lets him know that in no uncertain terms. The first story ends when the Yang Ban kidnaps Wall Mae, and orders her to submit to him. Wall Mae stabs herself in the chest to protect her honor, and when Chun Hyang bursts in—a minute too late—Mong Ryong, who of course is the Am-Hang-Osa, authorizes the Yang Ban's immediate execution. The Legend of Chun Hyang is high-quality manga. The art is excellent and the storylines, which have to do with honor and sacrifice, are simple and moving. Unfortunately, this is a reissue, so no further volumes will be forthcoming (to my knowledge); please note that the storyline does not end with the first volume. The Legend of Chun Hyang contains comic book violence. It is an excellent purchase for libraries with manga collections. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2004, Tokyopop, 222p. illus., Ages 12 to18.

    Outstanding!

    It is a great manga book. Unfortunately, there is no sequel. It should have a continuation, though. But it is still a great manga and you should buy it right away.

    No sequel?

    I thought this manga did an awesome job of telling the story of Chun Hyang. It was action-packed, dramatic, and humorous in all the right amounts. I would rate it higher, but I haven't read enough to really make a good judgement! Where's the rest of the story? I really want to read all of the legend, not part of it.

    Chun Hyan Kicks Butt

    This was a good book I really enjoyed it. On another note I want to know if there are other books that tell what happenes to her later on you know, like a part 2 or 3 or 4 and so on. If so please tell but you should read this book. It's funny and cool.
