Kill The Hero – Chapter 190 – Picking a Fight (1)
Players who were considered to have transcended the human race would sometimes have frivolous legends about them.
Players active in 6 Floor dungeons usually had one or two legendary tales about them.
However, none of them had returned from death.
But it had happened now.
[Isaac Ivanov’s Party comes back alive!]
[Isaac Ivanov returns from death!]
Isaac Ivanov, who virtually everyone in the world had believed to be dead, had returned with his life intact.
The world’s response to this fact was simple.
-Is this true?
-This doesn’t make sense. How did they clear an A+ rank 4 Floor dungeon with just the two of them?
-Are the Japanese dungeon using actors to avoid criticism?
-This is 100% false news.
No one in the world believed the news.
[Isaac Ivanov lost an arm! A serious injury!]
[Isaac Ivanov’s teammate currently in a coma!]
[Isaac Ivanov’s party currently receiving urgent treatment!]
However, they gradually began to believe it as more and more news articles began appearing.
[Exclusive! Reporter manages to capture image of Isaac Ivanov as he left the dungeon!]
People could no longer doubt the news when pictures and videos of Isaac Ivanov after he left the dungeon began appearing.
-Isaac is back from hell!
-Savior! He’s the real Savior!
-This is a miracle!
Instead, the world became filled with cheers as Isaac Ivanov once again created a miracle that no one else had managed to do before.
At the same time, another man was seeing another miracle with his own eyes.
-Congratulations on clearing the dungeon.
In a dark room, Kim Woo-jin sent Park Yong-wan congratulations for his successful dungeon attack through a video call.
Park Yong-wan smiled and said.
“This is the first time I’ve seen a dead person come back to life.”
After saying that, Park Yong-wan pressed his fingers to his temple.
Then he recalled the memory of last night when he had stepped out of the dungeon gate after finishing the attack on the dungeon.
The situation had been pretty tense at that time.
The attack on the 6 Floor dungeon was much more difficult than he had expected as an accident had occurred during the battle with the boss monster of the sixth floor, the Sword Weasel.
In order to reduce the damage caused by the accident, Park Yong-wan had needed to do even more work, and as a result, by the end of the dungeon attack, he sported new, serious injuries.
However, it was only after he arrived outside the dungeon that Park Yong-wan believed he received the truly deadly damage.
It was at that moment that he had been notified about Kim Woo-jin’s death. At the same time, he had also learned the news about Isaac Ivanov’s situation.
Park Yong-wan had felt his mind go blank.
That was how shocking these two pieces of news were.
“I never thought I’d experience a day when two dead men would come back to life.”
But now he had learned that the dead had come back to life at the same time.
“You don’t need to apologize. From my perspective, you being alive is already good enough.”
Of course, this news made him happy.
It was much better to get a little shock instead of actually having his investments simply collapse.
“The only thing I’m curious about is why you faked your death in the first place, so explain that. I don’t really like surprises.”
However, he still needed to hear the reason for their deception.
Naturally, Kim Woo-jin explained it to him.
-After I was attacked by the Japanese players, I had a discussion with Isaac Ivanov, and we both came to the same conclusion.
-We believe it is likely that someone in the Japanese government, or even the Japanese government itself is targeting Isaac Ivanov.
Park Yong-wan nodded slightly at those words.
This was a sign for Kim Woo-jin to continue talking.
-Naturally, we were sure they would attack Isaac Ivanov another time, so we deliberately faked my death. This way someone would be in the shadows, monitoring their actions. And like we expected, there was another attack.
After saying that, Kim Woo-jin let out a long sigh.
-It was only through God’s grace that Isaac made it back this time.
That long sigh showed a deep sincerity that no one would doubt.
Even Park Yong-wan was the same.
“I heard the report of the situation.”
It was absolutely impossible to clear an A+ rank dungeon that had Hellhounds without sufficient preparation.
“The heavens truly helped him. That would not have been possible without a heavy dose of luck.”
It wasn’t an exaggeration to say that he had been helped by the heavens.
Even an elite player like Park Yong-wan was willing to bet his entire fortune on that.
-Anyway, it’s good that he survived. Although there were injuries.
“Are the injuries serious?”
-Isaac’s aren’t that serious. He’d managed to recover his severed arm so he was able to get it reattached. Instead, it’s the other one’s injury that was more severe.
“What a pity.”
Although he said this, Park Yong-wan wasn’t actually disappointed.
‘As long as Isaac is alive.’
In his opinion, it was fine as long as Isaac Ivanov survived.
-Anyway, Isaac has made up his mind.
Then Kim Woo-jin continued speaking.
-He will end all activities in Japan after getting what Japan owes him.
Park Yong-wan nodded at those words.
“There’s no reason to keep hanging round those sneaky ******”
-So we’d like to know if Mr. Park Yong-wan would help us deal with the Japanese government. You are the only supporter that Isaac has with any influence in Japan.
They wanted him to go against the Japanese government.
Park Yong-wan responded to the request without hesitation.
“No problem. I’ll even confront the Sword Saint if I have to.”
Kim Woo-jin smiled at Park Yong-wan’s confidence.
“This is what I should do as a sponsor.”
After saying this, Park Yong-wan changed the subject once again.
“So what does Isaac Ivanov intend to do in the future?”
-I don’t know the detailed plan. And it’s possible that he might change his mind. But from what he’s said. It seems…he intends to target all the dungeons the Messiah Guild abandoned.
Park Yong-wan was surprised by that answer.
“Targeting the dungeons abandoned by the Messiah Guild?”
To attack the dungeons abandoned by the Messiah Guild meant to attack basically the worst dungeons.
It took tremendous willpower for Isaac Ivanov, who had already faced the possibility of dying in a dungeon, to say that.
Of course, there was another reason why Park Yong-wan was so surprised.
‘I picked the right guy.’
He clearly knew exactly what it meant to attack dungeons the Messiah Guild had left behind, and the value they had.
‘Clearing dungeons that the Messiah Guild gave up was basically challenging the Messiah Guild.’
Isaac Ivanov intended to challenge the Messiah Guild in a way that no one had dared to before.
Moreover, there was a high chance that he would be able to do it.
‘He’ll definitely do it.’
At that moment, Isaac Ivanov’s appeal rose once more.
Then Kim Woo-jin made an even more attractive offer to him.
-But now he’ll never move without protection. After experiencing this twice, it’s natural that he’d be wary.
Park Yong-wan nodded.
“From 4 Floor dungeons and up, you need more support and assistance.”
As he said this, Park Yong-wan drew a picture in his head.
This is the chance to ensure that he completely comes under me.’
The main reason players joined strong guilds was to block external variables as much as possible during dungeon attacks.
Especially with 4 and 5 Floor dungeons, because the number of these dungeons wasn’t high, attacks would often happen in foreign countries.
This meant that the same thing could happen again unless Isaac Ivanov was supported by that country’s government.
‘Isaac Ivanov is finally coming into my hand…how exciting.’
From Park Yong-wan’s perspective, this was the perfect opportunity to truly become more than Isaac Ivanov’s sponsor.
“Tell Isaac Ivanov. If he comes under me, I will support him in every possible way.”
He showed his willingness to pay the price.
Kim Woo-jin checked once again.
-Should I tell him those exact words?
“Okay, then that should be all the important matters. Do you have anything else to report?”
Park Yong-wan nodded at that.
It was then.
Kim Woo-jin suddenly stopped Park Yong-wan, who was about to end the call.
-I need funding.
Park Yong-wan’s expression crumpled as he said this, and Kim Woo-jin nodded as he explained.
-Since I’m officially dead, I can’t use the funds that were left in my name. So please support me. And since I’m in this kind of situation, I would need twice as much as usual.
Park Yong-wan’s heart quivered slightly at those words.
“…I’ll support you.”
-Thank you. Of course, please use money that is clean.
“Don’t worry, I’ll provide you with enough laundered money to even bribe the President.”
The call ended there.
The moment the video call ended, Park Yong-wan took out his smartphone and called his secretary.
“I need laundered money to send to Kim Woo-jin. Is it possible to do it right now? Oh Se-chan? Okay, then do that.”
After the phone call, Park Yong-wan lay on his bed while thinking.
‘I’m glad Kim Woo-jin is alive.’
