Do you mean Japanese manga translated to Korean or just straight up Korean Manhua? I don't think it matters much anyways but if you're looking for manga translated to Korean I remember there used to be some store called Bookoff or something that sold both manga written in Japanese and Korean. The less popular comics would sell at about 1k/book. A quick search on naver maps isn't giving any results though so maybe they ran out of business.

Korean Manhua I think you can just read online for free at naver webtunes or w/e daum's version is. They're higher quality than you think.

Edit: Yea they went out of business in 2014. http://train4world.tistory.com/4165
I guess you can still go to Aladdin book stores like the article says. They don't specialize in comic books like Bookoff does but they do sell them.
