What in the world is “Keol”?

Keol (결) is a Korean word referring to the flow or the texture of something, such as the grain of wood, the texture of a rock, or the flow of water. In this comic, it’s also the name of the nation where the vast majority of the story happens.

If you’re familiar with the official conventions of romanizing Korean, you know that ‘eo’ is supposed to represent the ‘uh’ sound as in dust, nun, etc. How counter-intuitive is that, though? I can’t think of a single English word that is spelled and pronounced that way. Geography? Jee-oh-graphy. Neon? Nee-un. Leopard? Leh-purd. You’ll see more than a few Korean words throughout the comic, and I’m going to be ignoring the official conventions in favor of sensibility.

So how do you pronounce Keol? It’s like kee-uhl… but say it fast and make it a single syllable. For extra authenticity points, soften that K a bit, almost like the G in gift.



Who’s making this comic?

It is written and drawn by me. Keiiii is the name I go by. It’s pronounced like “kay,” and don’t let anyone fool you… there are exactly four i’s in it. Not three, not five, not thirty-seven.
