Sign is a completed manhwa at one hundred and fifteen chapters. It is written and illustrated by Ker and has been published by Lezhin Comics. Soohwa Kang acquires a job at a café and learns the owner is deaf, yet he finds himself attracted to the voice Yohan Go has.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

There are a few unusual things about Café Goyo. Number one, their coffee sucks. Number two, their customers never order off the menu. And number three, Yohan, the café manager, is deaf. So when Soohwa joins as a part-timer, though he is not expected to learn how to make good coffee, he is asked to expand his sign language vocabulary beyond the words, “higher,” “pay,” and “please.” But when Yohan offers to give him private lessons, Soohwa is reluctant. Not because he doesn’t want to study, but because he has a “hard” time around Yohan. Like, literally. He gets hard whenever he hears Yohan’s deep, sexy voice.

He is 26 (born April 14) and unemployed before requesting a job at a café. Soohwa states that he is good at making coffee, and gained the job out of practicality with rent due. In cases of him asking for a job to feeling that Yohan was ignoring him before learning that he was deaf, Soohwa reflects with embarrassment at perceived blunders on his part. Unable to read Yohan's handwriting, he questions whether it is a drawing. With how he feels about Yohan's voice, Soohwa's self-consciousness almost causes him to decline Yohan's help with learning sign language, but he agrees to it after seeing his downtrodden appearing reaction.
