K-dramas have taken over the small screen with megahits like Squid Game, All of Use are Dead, Moving, and many more. But before the Hollywood breakthrough of Netflix’s Squid Game, the title of the platform’s most successful K-drama went to Sweet Home. It was one of the first webtoon adaptations for Netflix that dominated the Top 10 list when it premiered in 2020.

Its success among fans led Netflix to do the unthinkable and simultaneously greenlight the K-drama for two more seasons. Created by Kim Carnby and Hwang Young-chan, the webtoon was originally published in 2017 in Korea, before hitting US audiences in 2018.

It tells the story of a reclusive high school student named Cha Hyun-soo.

Before Song Kang became Hyun-soo on screen, the character came alive online. Here’s what you need to know about how to read the original webtoon ahead of Sweet Home Season 2.
