The Legend of Maian (마이언 전, Mayan Chronicles) is an ongoing Korean manhwa created by Lim Dall-young and illustrated by Soo-Cheol Jeong based on a Korean novel.

The Legend of Maian takes place in the fictional world of Shuria. In The Legend of Maian world, countries bid for power by using regular military means or by using jewsts (mages) or people that can use madra (magic). Of all the countries, the countries of Meningrad and Pennsylvania are the strongest. Each country is ruled by a king with its jewsts often having a high-ranking position. So far, only Meningrad and Pennsylvania are the only countries to be mentioned.


In post modern human civilization, technology regresses back to middle age level. The powerful sorceress, Felicia Rand Philistine, once tried to take over the country of Shurian. In the wake of her terror and destruction, a man rebelled against her oppression and domination. The people called him Yongja Maian (Maian the Brave) and it was he who was eventually able to seal away the evil sorceress.

A thousand years later Felix Maian has just probably made the biggest mistake of his life when he releases the sealed sorceress that his ancestors had tried so hard to imprison. Now he is charged with the task of trying to keep the sorceress from once again trying to take over the world. Her powers limited because of a personal seal, to remove, Felix must kiss Felicia.
