Best Teacher Baek

Once the finest instructor in the Blood Cult, Suryong Baek is killed, only to to wake up in the body of someone who teaches martial arts at a small rural academy. His new body may be weak, but he knows how to fix it, and it’s not the first time that he’s found himself in a body that can’t access its inner power. Curing his body requires money, however, and Suryong decides that becoming the greatest instructor at a top academy is the best way to do it. Since he’ll be up against tough competition, Suryong will have to use everything he’s got to become a teaching superstar.

41 chapters in so far and I really like it.  The overall narrative is just starting to get interesting. Pros The art is well done and consistent.  Although not super detailed with environments/backgrounds it does enough to not seem lazy. MC is a bit of the cliche nonchalant overpowered protagonist, but he is given handicaps to his constitution and due to a combination of politics/morals/and his personal goals he does not just rampage over everyone.  Or he at least has to do so in private or by proxies. The English translation (that I read at least) is very solid. The side characters are interesting and have good depth in their backgrounds and development along with the MC's own progression. Cons It is still being actively translated/updated so you will likely catch up quickly if you end up liking it.  If you're the type of person that likes to get a ton of content at once/will read 100 chapters in a day then I would honestly suggest bookmarking this for a couple months down the line when there is more. I don't know if I just read quickly, but the chapters do seem short/to pass by pretty quickly. Summary So Far MC was tasked with learning the martial arts of the 4 people who stood at the peak of murim (orthodox murim at least) as well as having knowledge about the Blood Sect which he was an instructor in during his past life.  He is reincarnated into the body of a man with a weak constitution who also seems to have a mysterious familial history of his own.  His priority is to cure himself and become one of the strongest and he eventually travels to a failing academy that was once one of the best to become an instructor in martial arts.  On his way to and while working there at the academy he uncovers future "rivals", more sinister overarching plots, the means to make himself stronger as well as a new goal: the ambition to pass on the various martial arts he has learned to worthy disciples.  This last goal is what I think makes this story truly great as it is not just about him trying to make himself stronger, but basically teaching a younger generation who will become the future leaders of murim.
