During its Sakura-Con 2024 industry panel, Ize Press announced the upcoming English print release of the Korean manhwa webcomic Semantic Error. The popular Boys’ Love manhwa series will receive its first English print release after being serialized on the webcomic platform Manta. 

The Semantic Error manhwa webcomic is adapted by artist Angy, based on the original BL web novel written by J. Soori. The series has also inspired two media adaptations, which include a four-episode series of animated shorts released in 2021 and a live-action Korean drama released in 2022. The live-action drama and its cast went on to win several awards in Korea, such as the Grand Bell Awards, Blue Dragon Series Awards, and APAN Star Awards.

The on-sale date of the English print edition of Semantic Error will be announced at a later date on the Ize Press social media pages.

Ize Press describes the synopsis as: 

Computer science major Sangwoo Choo values reason, routine, and rules above all, so when the rest of his teammates fail to contribute to the group presentation, he doesn’t hesitate to cut everyone’s names from the project entirely—including design major Jaeyoung Jang, which ruins his plans to graduate and study abroad. Jaeyoung is more than happy to return the favor and strives to be the biggest thorn in Sangwoo’s side—but as they spend more time together, a strange attraction begins to develop between them… Will Sangwoo be able to debug this semantic error from his life?
