As an F-Rank hunter, Kang Hyeonjun struggles to make a living in a world where dungeons exist and monsters are real. But after repeatedly failing to pull his weight in raids and being chewed out by fellow party members, his self-esteem hits rock bottom. To make matters worse, his girlfriend, who has climbed the ranks during their time together, dumps him on their one-year anniversary. When Hyeonjun returns home that night in a drunken haze, he finds himself walking into a dreamscape instead of his humble studio. There, a man claiming to be one of his past lives offers to make him stronger. But as the saying goes, if there’s no pain, there’s no gain. Will Hyeonjun be able to endure multiple trials and finally obtain the strength he so desperately desires?
Firstly id like to state that the premise of the manhwa is great. Rather than directly leveling up via a system of sorts with XP and what not the persons rank is determined by ability and talent. tho it does feel very out of place as skill / talent and technique alone cant suddenly increase power, agility and stamina / mana in such a drastic way but with that minor thing aside.The MC gains hands on experience with his past "990k" lives that are wishing to reincarnate into him. they train him based on situation (usually from being drunk or sleeping) tho can willingly go into the realm in which hes trained in. (Rarely)With this being said. im going to get straight to the base points on whats good and bad with this manhwa so as it doesnt turn into a wall of text[GOOD] - Art is acceptably good in majority of the chapters.[BAD] - The story is unbelievably rushed. So much so that the MC and side characters go from 0-100 in 1-2 chapters (im not even joking) - MC gains power and skills like its the equivelent to eating a box of popcorn. OP skill after OP skill in the span of 1-3 chapters. - Story progression rushed in such an unbelievable way that its not enjoyable at all to read! - Character goes from being scared all the time to power dominante in the span of 10 chapters to then back to scared shitless calling out in desperate plea for yet another excuse of "Powering Up" [TL;DR] To many people that are "Recommending" this compared it to solo leveling, Sorry but if you compare this to SL youre standards are exceptionally low and in no way know how to compare. its a typical reawaken manhwa yes but at this point plenty of these manwha have such things. but in terms of story, progression and pacing. this is just pure and utter crap and is rushed to the point that its defeating the purpose of reading it. there is no A > B > C development, instead its A > Z in the span of a chapter or two!
I have grown to hate stories where the mc kills a villain, only to find that the villain was the subordinate of a tougher villain, who in turn belongs to a tougher organisation who were being secretly controlled by an even tougher organisation all along, only to find out that they were controlled by, etc etc It is boring writing and a waste of what set out to be something on par with Solo Levelling at the start. There were dungeon raids and monster fights in the early chapters, but I'm at chap 35 atm and bored to tears. Where did the monsters and dungeons all go? I particularly loved how the mc killed everyone who attacked his orphanage (after he didn't even bother to conceal his identity), then all the kids/friends in the orphanage are just completely "okay" with the fact that he has just massacred everyone in cold blood. Also being fine to just relocate for their own safety because he's endangered them all. Lazy writing. An utter disappointment.
