For anyone tuned into Frolic, you may have noticed that we’re fans of Lore Olympus and Let’s Play. Both of these comics are fantastic, full of style and subtext and great character beats. 

Outside of these titles, I’ve been on the hunt for some paranormal creature features. Now that I’ve read a bunch of series, I have a few recommendations to give. 

If you’re a fan of angst, light humor, or amazing art, here are 5 paranormal romance series on Webtoons. As always, some of the series are ongoing. As such, we cannot verify if the uncompleted comics will end with a HEA.

1. Unholy Blood by Lina Im (Assisted by Jeonghyeon Kim)

Love Interest: Vampire Detective

Heat Level: Sweet (So Far)

Completion Status: Unfinished

In the near future, a supernatural crisis has unfolded. Vampires have emerged out of the shadows, and they’re preying on the human populace without end. 

Into this mess steps Hayan: a white-haired, pureblood vampire who wants to be a human. Sweet, overly helpful, and lonely, Hayan has always kept everyone at arm’s length due to her powers. At the height of the crisis, she meets Euntae, a superstar detective. 

Easy going and incredibly handsome, Euntae is determined to eradicate all vampires. The hunter immediately zeros in on Hayan as a potential ally—after which he admits that he knows her true identity. The two of them form an unconventional alliance as a result.

Perfectly paced, emotionally expressive, and visually stunning, Webtoons’ Unholy Blood veers more towards paranormal action than paranormal romance. That said, it still manages to deliver the goods. Hayan and Euntae are adorable, and when I say that I ship them, I ship them.

2. Dating With a Tail by Jinha and Hepon

Love Interest: CEO, Best Friend, Priest (Harem)

Heat Level: Sweet

Completion Status: Unfinished

In this serialized tale of romantic faux pas, Yunha is a low-level office worker doing a 9-5 gig. She lives with her grandmother and leads an overall conventional life. 

When our heroine wakes up one morning sporting a fox tail, along with an irresistible scent that attracts all men, her mischievous grandmother lets her in on a little “secret.”

Centuries ago, their ancestor was a fox spirit who fell in love with a woodcutter. When their love fell apart, future generations were cursed. Now, members of their family must find a reincarnated version of the woodcutter and kiss them, before the curse runs its course and they turn back into a spirit.

Yunha’s big problem? Her woodcutter candidates are her stuck-up boss, her “nice guy” male friend, and a local priest. She’d rather die than date any of them.

Comedic, quirky, and full of rom-com vibes, Webtoons’ Dating With a Tail is a nice, light story for anyone who wants a laugh.

See You in My 19th Life by Lee Hey

Love Interest: CEO

Heat Level: Sweet

Completion Status: Unfinished

The See You in My 19th Life webtoon confused me at first. I didn’t understand why people kept on describing it as “angsty,” but when I read further, the dramatic vibes hit me like a freight train. I was subsequently hooked.

Jieum Ban has been reincarnated eighteen times, and she can remember all of her previous lives in detail. Currently living out her most recent identity as the daughter of an entertainment mogul, Jieum is determined to take it easy. If she’s going to be born again and again, she’s going to enjoy her good fortune while it lasts.

This plan for a quiet life is tossed out the window when Jieum meets Seoha, the young son of another CEO. Standoffish and struggling to acclimate, Seoha quickly latches on, and despite her best intentions Jieum finds herself growing fond of him, too. 

That is, until she’s killed in a car crash. She’s reincarnated into her 19th life.

Starting again with all her memories intact, Jieum feels guilty over how she left Seoha. She wants to see him to make sure that he’s OK. When the two of them finally meet up, Jieum finds that letting go is impossible. Now an adult and the head of his own company, Seoha is struggling with PTSD and chronic injuries from the same car crash that killed her. He’s never been able to move on from his grief.

See You in My 19th Life is angsty and heartfelt. Jieum is smart and funny as hell, and you can’t help but feel for Seoha, who has struggled with the side-effects of trauma his entire life.

Content Warnings: Child death, parental death, cancer, car crashes.

Caveat by Yaromary

Love Interest: CEO

Heat Level: Sweet (So Far)

Completion Status: Unfinished

This story definitely falls on the mystery side of things, and the romance is pretty muted. That said, the romance that is there is so good that I had to recommend the Caveat webtoon, simply to say “give it a shot.”

In Caveat, the magic-wielding Maritnez family is a broken unit. It consists of Richard Maritnez and his two adult children, Nate and Jane. All three are hurting over the recent disappearance of Richard’s fiance, Maya, who vanished without a trace.

When Nate walks past a nearby coffee shop, he finds himself contacted by the ghost of his dad’s dead fiance. From there, the three of them learn that Maya was actually murdered. She can also “come back to life” through the possession of other people’s bodies, a fact which they take advantage of right away.

Determined to retify the tragedy, Maritnez and his children try to solve the mystery of her murder. Simultaneously, they try to avoid a cult.

Visually stunning, angsty, and surprisingly suspenseful, this webtoon is one to watch.

Content Warnings: Mentons of suicide, alchoholism, depression.

Devil No. 4, by jangjin and woombeee

Love Interest: Devil

Heat Level: Sweet

Completion Status: Finished

Devil No. 4 is one of those slice-of-life comics that you don’t expect to have a complex plot, only for it to dive headfirst into something that is surprisingly insightful. You also don’t have to worry about Devil No. 4’s ending, as the comic is complete!

In Devil No. 4, Hanna Yoon is a dirt-poor university student struggling to make ends meet. Alone and in need of help, her plea is heard by a crossroads demon, who goes by the name of Devil No. 4. 

No. 4 offers to grant Hanna whatever she desires, so long as she hands over her soul. At first, Hanna doesn’t want anything—a fact that confounds and frustrates 4, who is on “probation” and needs to make sure that he snags her contract in order to keep himself free.

As the two of them grow closer, however, No. 4 faces an existential crisis. Here is a chance to learn what it is like to love someone other than yourself—an emotion that is usually inaccessible and forbidden to devils. Does he really want to kill Hanna and lose out?

Devil No. 4 is a great slice-of-life read with a supernatural twist, featuring sweet, empathetic characters. I personally love it for its LGBTQ+ rep.

Content Warnings: Flashbacks to extreme child neglect.
