The Cheese’s webtoon Jobless’ Three Meals, on which A DeadbEAT’s Meal is based, began serialization in April 2019 as a “challenge webtoon” on Naver, comparable to WEBTOON Canvas. After receiving favorable reactions from fans, the webtoon began serialization in Naver Webtoon on September 2019.
The webtoon depicts the balance between the two major protagonists’ romance and food. The foods in the original webtoon were drawn in the style of a food photograph. Cheese, the author, detailed his method of sketching the dishes on his Instagram.
