In one word,it will be going to be a great manhwa in future because the way the story unfolds is remarkable.And also kudos to the translation team for their precise use of different metaphors,similes that made the manhwa more imposing and impressive.It was like a journey through a fairy tale. Here the manhwa depicts a scholar's(the mc Son Bin) journey through the murim world where he percieves the martial arts not himself as a practioner,but through the deeds and the practices of the martial arts king Sah Jahyouk.Sah jahyouk came to know from the mc that "If people don't know about any event,then it's the same as if it never happened" and so he wanted the mc to follow his journey and to write a book about him that will record his heroic deeds so that the future could remember him.Soon the mc agrees.But he remains clueless for sometime as he has no idea about martial arts,so he seeks knowledge by observing Sahjyuk's training and wrote scribbled notes about his dark heaven martial arts and through compiling those notes into a book he gained enlightment which describes his growth in the martial arts and soon in future he will follow the path of Sah Jahyouk. The growth of the mc is slow but still its amusing to watch. Other characters also feel human with their flawed nature,but we still don't know about the past of many characters. Still I am a bit disappointed in the art especially in the fight scenes where its a lacking a lot,but I think its improving. But I expect great from this manhwa in future and I highly recommend it.
