Besides, “7FATES: CHAKHO” topped the New & Trending chart as well as the All Genres chart on Naver Webtoon’s English service platform. Inspired by the chakho-gapsa, or tiger hunters, of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), “7FATES: CHAKHO” is an urban fantasy web novel set in the near future featuring protagonists inspired by BTS members.

An official from Naver Webtoon said, “This project is the first case in the industry to simultaneously launch webtoons and web novels in 10 languages. All three works are well-received for expressing curious storytelling through sophisticated illustrations. They seem to be attracting attention from a wide and diverse readership, not only new visitors but also existing subscribers.”
