Welcome to the TAL Wiki!

TAL is a Korean webtoon written and drawn by artist Kang Im, and hosted on Naver. This wiki is currently at 54 pages and growing. We try to cover everything from basic character information to episodes, and trivia gleaned from the author's blog.

Quick summary
TAL (Masks) takes place in modern-day Korea. Exploring the strange world and society of the chachaoongs, the story focuses on a group of chachaoongs who have gathered around the new king, Yu Jin, a high school student with no desire to accept his new responsibilities.

As Jin is drawn deeper into the secret, and often violent, chachaoong community, he finds himself surrounded by a group of chachaoongs called Tals. Jin struggles to continue to live his life as he always has while unrest in the chachaoong community frequently erupts into dramatic fights that endanger the lives of his new friends.

With the enigmatic Imae mask at his side, the secrets of Jin's past threaten to surface with each passing conflict. While he goes about business as usual, Jack, the first chachaoong king whose motivations are still unclear, is finally beginning to make his move.

His choice happens to be Yu Jin, an ordinary human. Many chachaoongs cannot tolerate a nobody ruling them and Jin finds himself caught up in the conflict with new enemies at every turn!
