    I'm nine parts in, of 1st chapter. Why the heck is Jin Woo so scared? I get it. Impending doom and all that. But everytime he looks at people he's scared. He's just... Sigh.

      But doesn't that just make it still a generic good guy who just starts with an bad rep? Or is it like The Villain Wants to Live where the generic good guy and evil villain merge into a single personality that does evil for the greater good? If it's tagged evil because the shell he inherits was a bad guy but he behaves righteously, then it's the exact opposite of what I'm looking for when trying to find a villain led story.

    This novel is extreme racism. (Spoiler) I really want to ask how come there so many talents in ml country with less population and no talented people in others countries with more population. And of course mc is always carrying plot Armor mode. Everyone of his enemies die or change without ml knowing or trying.

      People seem to have completely forgotten what actual racism is. This is simply a novel made for Korean audience that’s all.

      pretty hypocritical, even if the novel is made for a Korean audience doesn't make it not racist. There are different forms of racism.

      No lol. Just because Korea is the number one super power in this world it doesn’t make it racist.

      Then why don't just add the tag "just for Koreans" then we will stop reading it. If you post a novel in online and expect only Koreans to read then I am sorry 😐😐😔😔. Then i please request the administrative to add the tag so we will stop reading it and give our review.

      Shouldn't it be obvious by the fact that this is a translated KOREAN novel? Common sense.

      Well I am new to this so I only read because it's highly ranked. There are somethings we expect when a novel is highly ranked.

      I don't think it's racist but (Not really a spoiler)Spoiler AlertI agree I think alot of novel's do this though (especially Chinese) but keep in mind this is made for a Korean audience I do agree that it sucks that novel's don't really consider other geopolitical factors I think it would be very interesting for a novel to have these factors like "hunters are gaining influence how would the authratative ccp deal with this" or "would America be able to stay the strongest country due to it's strong economy and good relations with the world or would something like India, Nigeria or Bangladesh take over due to stronger birth rates and more people" but yeah that's just the way it is so idk i don't think it's racist or anything just dumb

    Up to chapter 158-ish:Spoiler AlertIntroducing sci-fi while not finishing matters from the parallel-Earth first really broke the flow of the story, and it's frustrating. Not to mention the unbearable attitude of the MC sometimes. For a so-called Emperor, he rarely makes any attempt to make things clear, nor clear the obvious misunderstandings.

    It has a really interesting story, but it would be better if the person's laziness was mentioned a little less. It is said thousands of times and every time one wishes to strangle the mc. Fear of women and distance was less. It was really perfect. But it's really enjoyable, thank you
