‘Viral Hit’ digital comic now available via WEBTOON

Scrawny high school student Hobin Yu is probably the last guy you’d expect to star in a NewTube channel that revolves around fighting.

Masakazu Hishida’s Crunchyroll series Viral Hit is now available to read on WEBTOON. “Viral Hit,” by Taejun Pak, CEO of PTJ Comics, and Kim Junghyun, has itself been a hit since its 2019 debut. The ongoing series has amassed over 2 billion global views across over 200 episodes and has an upcoming graphic novel to be published by WEBTOON Unscrolled, WEBTOON’s graphic novel imprint.

So what’s Viral Hit about?

Scrawny high school student Hobin Yu is probably the last guy you’d expect to star in a NewTube channel that revolves around fighting. But after following some advice from a mysterious NewTube channel, Hobin is soon knocking out guys stronger than him and raking in more money than he could have ever dreamed of. Can Hobin keep this up, or will he eventually meet his match?

The digital comic originally premiered on the WEBTOON platform in November 2019 in Korean, and English in October 2020. Prior to “Viral Hit,” Tajeun Pak created the highly popular ongoing WEBTOON series “Lookism,” one of the first WEBTOON-adapted hits on Netflix, which spent two weeks on Netflix’s Global Top 10.
