The first volumes of Let Dai by Sooyeon Won and Not So Bad by E.Hae will soon be going into second printings, and, in addition to some graphic design alterations, both are currently in the process of being extensively rewritten. Suffice to say that none of you want to know how long we agonized over the very first page of Let Dai Vol. 1. >_< Happily, I'm discovering that, even with my limited Korean, I'm able, on a limited basis, to double-check the translation/adaptation against the original text.

One guess as to which NETCOMICS title has already gotten a second printing. (^_^;

*dies laughing*
Then I'll have to wait a year or so until they all get re-written XD

No, it's going to be done very soon. I've already gone through Not So Bad and marked EVERYTHING that might be worth changing/fixing. Let Dai I came in fresh to yesterday.

But I buy through Amazon so I have no way to know if it's the first edition or the re-written one^^

I'll tell you when the 2nd printing ships--'cause chances are, there will be a lot of people who have it before I do, anyway.

Places like Amazon and B&N online ALWAYS sell the latest printings 'cause they run out fastest.

Umm, what were those top recommendations for me again? ^_^;
10th-Nov-2006 01:09 pm (UTC)
I don't remember. ^^;;;

Probably AEGIS, Dokebi Bride, Land of Silver Rain, Can't Lose You, Manhwa Novella Collection Vol.1-2, and Let Dai (if you're in the mood for homoerotic ANGST).

A little homoerotic angst (or maybe a lot) is always entertaining ^_^
10th-Nov-2006 01:19 pm (UTC)
Then go for it. ^_~
10th-Nov-2006 01:49 pm (UTC)
So will the font/text spacing will be adjusted at least? ^^;;;
10th-Nov-2006 01:51 pm (UTC)
Absolutely. I was "adjusting" yesterday, as well.
10th-Nov-2006 01:53 pm (UTC)
Way glad to hear that ^__^b
10th-Nov-2006 01:55 pm (UTC)
It should look like the later volumes.
10th-Nov-2006 02:02 pm (UTC)
Well I've got the first three already and I could see the big difference between 1 and 3. So I guess it's not so bad.
(Still not used to seeing everyone flipped though.^^;;)

Huh? What do you mean?

Well I don't know about the Korean version...
But for my chinese version, the reading is from right to left, and even when Dai's looking right in the english one, he's looking left in my one.
10th-Nov-2006 02:14 pm (UTC)
Ah. The NETCOMICS releases are in their original Korean format. All Korean comics read left to right. The Chinese versions you were reading must've been flipped.
10th-Nov-2006 02:20 pm (UTC)
Ooh, ya. They must have done that.
I think they did it with other Korean books as well.
10th-Nov-2006 04:07 pm (UTC)
Really? I'm surprised that they do that...

Is that a publisher in mainland China proper or Taiwan?
10th-Nov-2006 04:21 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure about China. Perhaps they do the same thing.
10th-Nov-2006 04:55 pm (UTC)
Really? That's so interesting. I didn't think that publishers were in the habit of flipping manga anymore...
