The Children’s Teacher, Mr. Kwon: An Announcement

It is with heavy heart that we make this announcement to let everyone know that we’ve officially dropped The Children’s Teacher, Mr. Kwon.

Our love and dedication for this webtoon are as strong as ever, but we had to make the decision against our will – it’s rather difficult to continue when you’re asked respectfully but clearly to desist by the webtoon’s original author Howoo himself (He was nice about it, however. He appreciated what we were doing and was grateful for our dedication). We tried to pursue the matter by contacting Naver directly for permission (we didn’t specify that it’s Mr. Kwon that we’re interested in, but asked for a general permission to translate some webtoons), who holds the electronic publishing rights to these webtoons, but Naver also refused us politely, saying that the matter of translating webtoons into English is something they’re already considering internally and thus can’t give us consent.

So that’s that and we bid this nice webtoon goodbye – and thanks to everyone who’s been following it until now. But there is another group that might pick up this project again soon, so don’t be too disheartened, guys.

  1. Well I’ve searched now for over 2 hours but it looks like they didn’t release any chapters with english subs (can you say subtitles?). Do you intend to start again or do you have found a source where I can read the remaining Chapters?

    Thanks a lot in advanced.
    (And even if I started late in reading it, you guys put a lot of effort into it and I just want to thank you for doing so keep up the great work!)

    P.S. Sorry if my english isn’t the best, but I hope you could understand what I wanted to tell you.

    • Sorry for this late reply. I guess Naver hasn’t started on this series yet, but maybe they’ll start soon – don’t forget to check Naver’s Line webtoon site every now and then. Meanwhile, I’m pretty sure another group had continued from where we left off some time ago, and got some chapters done – you might want to check them out. It’s nice to read that you’ve enjoyed this nice webtoon and thanks for your support.

  2. So sad! :'( I’m left on a cliff hanger! Love The Children’s Teacher, Mr. Kwon.. it gives me this warm fuzzy but also sad feel every-time I read it …I’ve already feel in love with all; the characters :( Well I’m just grateful they told us instead of just leaving. Thank you for creating something so amazing! and thank you for your hard work! :D

  3. Noooooooooooooo. ;_; Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. It’s also great to see the author and Naver requesting it nicely, and you people following their wishes. Makes me believe in the virtual world a bit more again. I hope their English translations won’t take too long and will be of decent quality. Thanks for all the hard work anyway!

    • Hehe, thanks for your support and hopefully someone else (whether it be Naver or another group) continues it soon. Cheers!

  4. If you’re asked to stop, nothing you can do.
    Nice to see that they were polite about it.

    Look forward to seeing what you guys decide to pick up next!
