[Webtoon Review] Cuteness and warmth surround The Sock Monster


The Sock Monster is a webtoon that is cute and heartwarming as it explores the coming-of-age of a young girl named Su-jin as she goes out into the world by herself and encounters new adventures, love and adorable new friends!

Su-jin is from a very small town. She lives with her family and works at the local bank. But she is forced to accept a transfer to a bank in Snowfall Village, a place very different and very far away from the home that she is used to.

The village seems like a big bustling city compared to her hometown and she finds herself struggling to adjust to living alone and taking care of herself without her family and friends to rely on for emotional support. But slowly but surely, she begins to build a life in Snowfall Village that is completely her own. She develops a crush on a neighbor named Mr. Lara.

But more importantly she finds herself taking care of an adorable creature named the Sock Monster. She discovers the chubby little sock-eating creature in her room and is immediately taken by its cuteness. 

She names it Mewnny and it becomes a source of comfort for Su-Jin. Together they become a little family as they endure both struggles and accomplishments together.   

The story behind this webtoon is heartwarming and sincere but the biggest draw of this series is the artwork. It creates a cozy warmth for the reader and there is also a nostalgia factor that comes to play as you read. It's very reminiscent of children's book illustrations and you can't help but think of your own childhood. As Su-Jin's life and her growing relationships with the Sock Monster and Lara continue to be explored, you can't help but be affected by their sweetness.
