Today’s Webtoon Episode 2 Recap

Jang Man Cheol calls for an emergency meeting with the members of the webtoon editing department after Baek Eo Jin informs him about his desire to pull out the episodes he forwarded to Neon due to hate comments he continues to receive.

The incident happens after a meeting with On Ma Eum and Seok Ji Hyung. The two then decide to go to Baek Eo Jin’s house to talk to the writer. The department decides to skip a week instead to avoid further damage.

However, he refuses to talk to them. On Ma Eum also apologizes for making the mistake and telling the webtoon writer she will always leave long, positive comments on his episodes. It turns out that one of Baek Eo Jin’s illustrators, Yang Kyung Sik signed with a new platform and told the writer that his works have been receiving hate comments from fans. The illustrator also sends the writer screenshots of the comments section.

With that, he starts to think about his retirement.

Far from what the comments say, young people feel disappointed after Neon announces Baek Eo Jin’s The Dream of the Dragon’s hiatus.

Goo Jun Yeong, meanwhile, discovers that the webtoon editing department might not last for a year. He has also been receiving too many works from Kwon Young Bae, leading him to meet one of the webtoon writers, Pomme.

While the problem about Baek Eo Jin is yet to be resolved, On Ma Eum finds a solution after watching a documentary about David of Michelangelo. With that, she calls Seok Ji Hyung to explain what the problem is in Baek Eo Jin’s illustrations.
