Baek Woojin is the youngest son of a renowned swordsman family who has neither talent in swordsmanship nor an impressive Aura, despite trying harder than anyone. Although he was dishonored by his own family and killed, he reincarnates as the owner of a Magic Sword. His only goal is the destruction of his own family.
While the cliche concept is one I typically like, the telling is too manhua. What I mean is there is too much overdrama but told in such a way that it sounds like a 13 yo who thought they were being funny wrote it and I was waiting for a declaration of "COURTING DEATH?!" at almost every moment. The art I rate below average because by today's standards, for a currently released manhwa, it's not good. The colorization, the shading, the filled in backgrounds are great. Very standard, what you'd expect. However the lineart is poorly done, action moves are drawn in ways human bodies can't move while intact, faces are contorted, hair lines don't match up and sometimes people will look like they're balding suddenly for a few panels, line placement is haphazard. I'm not trying to be overly critical, but if too many panels jump out as me as "drawn wrong" in too short of a period of time, it makes me feel like it was sloppily done. The story is cliche already, but beyond just having everything handed to the main character they actively act like "oh, he's training for it" while constantly slapping on both "NEVER IN ALL MY YEARS AS A MAGIC SWORD HAVE THE POWERS THAT BE GRANTED A MASTER OF MINE SO MUCH POWER SO QUICKLU AND FOR SO LITTLE UWAAAAAH!!" on top of all his future knowledge he somehow has despite being kicked out and never getting stronger, plus knowledge of techniques that don't feel reasonable for him to have known according to something else the story said 5ish chapters previous. With the driving 'hook' being simple revenge on his family, it's just not enough to keep my interest with all the bad in this. I hate the characters. That really broke this for me, more than anything else. Personalities, the way they were drawn, interactions... it all repulsed me. When the main character is unlikable, that's bad enough... not having a single character you find yourself interested in looking at/reading about is much worse. His family is all scum and of COURSE the first woman outside of his family you even see is instantly interested in him and the next one was introduced standing dramatically on a high rock, staring at the sky~ in high frikkin heels. I dropped this one pretty early. Left at chapter 11 bc that was all I could stand.

The art is good but it is not fit for these type of manhwas. The facial expressions of the characters are not that much polished. Side Character are a little bit better but the main character is very childish. The overall worldbuilding is also not that impressive. If you want a dungeon manhwa with a lot of drama then you can try this manhwa.
