Kill The Hero – Chapter 61
Many players enjoyed great wealth because of their profession. Boasting in expensive sports cars, luxury goods and ignoring the law. They lived a life of debauchery.
But not everyone was like that.
Some players preferred to steadily and safely attack dungeons and they could be considered a class of their own.
Kim Je-hoon was like that.
In the eyes of the public, he was just a loyal member of the Skull Guild who simply attacked low difficulty dungeons along with his guildmates.
At least until something happened.
Matsumoto Naoki. When Kim Je-hoon failed to deal with Kim Woo-jin, his situation changed 180 degrees.
In fact, Kim Je-hoon only gave a bit of minor assistance to the job.
‘I just helped.’
There was nothing great, nothing special. I just did what I normally do.
So even if it failed, it wouldn’t be Kim Je-hoon’s problem.
‘But why do I have to get fucked for it when it was Matsumoto who failed?”
However, after the assassination attempt failed, the Skull Guild apprehended him, accusing him of being a spy.
Of course, Kim Je-hoon professed his innocence and in the end the Skull Guild didn’t expel him for it.
Instead, they let him stay but from the way they treated him, Kim Je-hoon knew they didn’t believe him just yet.
‘If they find out anything, then it’s over.’
It wouldn’t be a good thing.
The problem he had was that he actually was a spy.
‘If the contact point with the Messiah Guild is revealed…’
The Messiah Guild.
They were the ones who were actually behind Kim Je-hoon.
The Messiah Guild was leading the Skull Guild towards a direction they desired, with the help of Kim Je-hoon.
‘It’s really dangerous.’
Naturally, if this fact was revealed, Kim Je-hoon’s life would be in danger.
‘The Messiah Guild would get rid of me.’
It was clear to him what the Messiah Guild would do before the trouble truly broke out.
‘I have to restore the Skull Guild’s trust in me somehow.’
From Kim Je-hoon’s perspective, the only way he could live was if he resolved this situation.
Therefore, Kim Je-hoon made many preparations.
‘Kim Woo-jin, I have to kill him with my own two hands.’
The recognition he’d gain from killing Kim Woo-jin was the best option he could think of. So he began to look for opportunities to kill him.
So even while he maintained his public persona, he began digging for information on Kim Woo-jin and in his search he found something.
Thanks to that.
“Is this information true?”
“So Kim Woo-jin is investigating me?”
“Since he had a meeting with Park Yong-wan he has requested information about you. We gave him false information, as promised.”
“Please pay the agreed fee for this option to our account.”
“Yes, I’ll send it right away.”
He was able to learn that Kim Woo-jin was in fact researching him.
‘Is this a rice cake from the sky?’
From the perspective of Kim Je-hoon who was planning to kill Kim Woo-jin, this was like a rice cake falling into his lap from the sky.
‘No, it’s not the right time.’
Therefore Kim Je-hoon intended to be more cautious with his movements.
‘He fought that monster Matsumoto and managed to survive. He’s not some average player.’
Kim Je-hoon didn’t dare to underestimate Kim Woo-jin.
‘It’s hard for me alone. I’ll have to stick near to those guys who can surely catch him.’
Just as a lion hunts with its pride even while being confident in his own strength, he would not overestimate himself and intended to call a few companions.
‘If I ask the Skull Guild for help, they’d just use me as bait.’
The Skull Guild was excluded from the start.
If he were to go to them with the information on Kim Woo-jin, he himself would look suspicious instead.
Also, the Skull Guild didn’t have the time to pay attention to Kim Woo-jin.
Now that the guild had sent a war declaration to Park Yong-wan, they were now focusing on defending against the inevitable counterattack.
‘I have no choice.’
At that moment, a man’s face came to mind.The man was seemingly in his 30’s with sharp features, like an unsheathed blade.
‘Yang Ji-hoo…I’ll have to call him.’
He was one of most powerful people that Kim Je-hoon could ask, with superior skills and abilities.
This was the era when players were in power. In this era, Park Yong-wan’s clearance of the 6 Floor Dungeon made a big stir.
[Park Yong-wan! The legendary man who cleared a 6 Floor Dungeon said to be Korea’s new powerhouse!]
[The value of the Park Yong-wan’s strategy for the 6 Floor Dungeon said to cost 100 trillion won!?]
[Park Yong-wan! Will he become Korea’s new future!?]
There were many waves in Korea and even in the international community. However the biggest change was in the Phoenix Guild.
[Phoenix Guild, do they believe Park Yong-wan to be the best?]
[Restructuring in the Phoenix Guild expected to take place, the cause? Park Yong-wan!]
The power structures in the Phoenix Guild began shifting, with Park Yong-wan at the center and all of his aides gained higher positions as a result.
Among them, there was one unexpected name.
“Kim Woo-jin? That fucker who hit his colleagues?”
“No, how on earth did he become one of Park Yong-wan’s aides?”
“He hasn’t been in the guild for even half a year right?”
Within the Phoenix Guild, there were many who expressed surprise when they heard that the newbie Kim Woo-jin was included.
As their surprise was too high, rumors also began to circulate within the guild.
When he heard about the rumors, Park Yong-wan only made a short statement.
“Kim Woo-jin? I’m interested to see where this player can go in the future. He has potential.”
At that time, the rumors seemed to come through.
“I bet that Kim Woo-jin is one of Park Yong-wan’s guards.”
“Damn it, I’ll have to be careful around someone else now.”
Kim Woo-jin became one of Park Yong-wan’s men, and if you touched him then you’d have to face Park Yong-wan in the end.
‘You kept your promise.’
Park Yong-wan had indeed kept his promise, and so it was time for Kim Woo-jin to keep his promise.
‘The Skull Guild isn’t making any moves, it’s making me impatient.’
In order to keep his promise, Kim Woo-jin headed to Yeongjongdo, Incheon
