Kwon Jinie: The Breaker

Posted in Author’s blog (“tdstudio”) on: 1/16/2021

Translation:

New Year’s greetings are late.

It’s been a while since I’ve drawn the breaker characters as I go..

I think I need to practice a lot.

And currently, writer Jeon Geuk-jin is writing Breaker Season 3. If possible… I’d like to save the Breaker 3 manuscript while finishing the promised orchid (“author’s another manhwa he is working on now!”) but…

I’m not sure what it will be like. Anyway, in the middle of this year… If it’s late, I’m thinking of aiming to publish Breaker 3 in the second half.

There are many variables. I need to find a new staff.. My condition is now changing every year depending on my age…

I don’t mind asking those who wait for the breaker to wait a little longer.

Happy New Year once again~

Here’s what written on their official blog in Korean.

이래저래 새해 인사가 늦었습니다.

오랜만에 브레이커 캐릭터들을 손 가는 대로 그려봤는데요..

많이 연습을 해야 할 것 같습니다~~^^

근황을 말씀드리자면 아마도 올해 5~6월쯤 난약을 100화 정도에서 마무리를 지을 예정입니다.

그리고 현재 전극진 작가님이 브레이커 시즌 3를 집필하고 계십니다.

가능하다면.. 난약을 마무리 지으면서 브레이커 3 원고 세이브 작업을 하고 싶은데.. 어떨지는 잘

모르겠네요. 아무튼 올해 중반.. 늦으면 후반에 브레이커 3 연재를 목표로 생각하고 있습니다.

여러 가지 변수는 있거든요. 새로운 스텝도 구해야 하고.. 제 컨디션도 이제 나이 듬에 따라

매년 달라지네요…

브레이커를 기다려주시는 분들에게 조금만 더 기다려달라는 염치없는 말씀드리고요.

다시 한번 새해 복 많이 받으세요~

The author wants to try starting season 3 in the second half of 2021. He still unsure of the exact date, for those that don’t know the writer started working on the script last year (2020).

As an important enemy of Murim who wants to destroy the alliance, he is an important but secondary protagonist in New Waves who follows Shioon’s path. He is commonly known as the Goomoonryong (lit. Nine Arts Dragon), and was the teacher of main protagonist Shi-Woon Yi before officially expelling him. Chun-Woo is also the conqueror of all nine seats of power, earning him the title of Goomoonryong and is regarded to be the strongest martial artist under the heavens.

Shi-Woon Yi: is the main protagonist of The Breaker Series. He is the first official disciple of Han Chun-Woo, the Goomoonryong, and the current Head of the Sun-Woo Clan, and the Danju of the Martial Arts Alliance.

Kwon Jae-Kyu: was the second-in-command of the Sun-Woo Clan, head of the Elder Council and grandfather of Kwon Jinie‏‎. He was also one of the Ten Grand Masters of the Murim.

Kwon Jinie: is the granddaughter of Kwon Jae-Kyu and a member of the Sun-Woo Clan. She is assigned by him to be Shi-Woon Yi’s hidden bodyguard, in order to protect him from people within the Murim-In.

Hyuk So-Chun: is the Assistant-Leader of the Heavenly Way School and a Martial Arts prodigy in the Murim world. He first started out as an antagonist to Shi-Woon Yi, but later becomes an Ally/Rival to him.

What is a Murim?

What is a Murim?

In the world of the Murim, the term “mu means martial arts and rim means growing too fast and powerful” is derived from the term forest.

No one knows when Murim first came into existence in the world. Except, many trace its beginnings to the Ascetics from long who had secluded themselves deep in the mountains of the rugged wilderness in order to seek enlightenment.

Legend states that martial arts originated with a group of monks as a means to defend themselves from the dangerous animals they encountered while meditating in the forest.

Soon after their appearance, these monks became famous throughout the society as martial arts masters because of their powers. In response, many people quickly met them in order to become their disciples. In time, with more masters and disciples appearing, the amount of murim increased, clans and schools were formed and the world of Murim was born.

The murim is a world maintained by the passage of martial arts from the previous generation to the next. Accordingly, the relationship between master and disciple must be more intimate and earnest than a blood relationship between father and son.

Due to the nature of the murim being “not normal” since their strength is far above the ordinary, there was the fear that coexistence between normal people and murim would create conflict and, in time, war. Thus, the existence of the Murim world was kept secret from normal people, with the exception of some members of local governments and federal government.

There are rules the Murim-in must follow, when a battle between Murim-in they must inform the Martial Art Alliance of the battle. And if a Murim-in tries to take a life then they have to be prepared to risk their own life as well.

Chunwoo Han is a martial artist who earned the title of Nine Arts Dragon from the Murim, a secret martial arts society that exists in harmony with modern society. The Murim’s government is the Martial Arts Alliance who has garnered Chunwoo’s hatred by killing his martial arts teacher. In the present, Chunwoo Han transfers to a fictional school in Seoul for a mission given to him by the Black Forest Defense Group, an anti-government group who opposes the Martial Arts Alliance.

At the school, he meets the protagonist Shioon Yi. To solve his bullying problem, Shioon has Chunwoo train him in martial arts. Chunwoo initiates his mission and frees Sosul, the head of the Sunwoo Clan, from the Martial Arts Alliance. As Chunwoo prepares to leave the country, the Martial Arts Alliance takes Shioon hostage, forcing him to intervene.

In the conflict, Chunwoo publicly renounces Shioon as his disciple and destroys his Qi-center which cripples his potential as a martial artist. In doing so, Shioon is no longer considered part of Murim and will be protected by law from martial artists who wish to take revenge on Chunwoo through Shioon. In the aftermath, Shioon is greeted by the Sunwoo Clan who reveals Sosul has named him as her successor.

The sequel The Breaker: New Waves continues with Shioon who has declined his position as the head of the Sunwoo Clan. Meanwhile, the Martial Arts Alliance is losing its control over the world and a new group, acronymed SUC, begins terrorizing normal citizens under the name of the Nine Arts Dragon.

Shioon becomes acquainted with Sera Kang who arranges a series of events and successfully restores Shioon’s Ki-center. After learning about the existence of SUC, Shioon resolves to destroy them for tarnishing his teacher’s name.
