Very good

Definitely among the best reincarnation stories imo. The world is set in an old Korea style setting with impressive martial arts, so murim with no cultivation or magic (so far at least), so being the MC a reincarnation of the previous strongest man on earth and him starting practice martial arts sice 3-4 years old, its actually believable that he is very powerful when reaching adulthood, that's a big plus.
The story is progressing slowly which might be an issue for many but I don't mind and has been slowly setting the world and players of the story. There is clearly a story unfolding regarding the princess but it's too soon to know anything.
The second is that the MC is good, he doesn't go overboard bragging, doesn't go on killing rampages, is measured and hides his talent while doing the "dirty work" behind the scenes maintaining a low profile and he uses his brain for a change, also, he may sound like a goody two shoes but he's quite brutal at times and doesn't flinch from killing which is always a plus in my book. Furthermore, his interactions with other chars are interesting and feel natural, well except for that pathetic guard that should have been fired in the first 10ch or so. As for ohkimch comment regarding sexism, all I can say is "what do you expect?" this is not set in modern age, equality of gender didn't compute in those times, I would actually say they are quite liberal given the setting.
Last but not least, the artstyle is very good, the flow is good and the use of it for comedy is both funny and charming/cute.
All in all, this is one of my favourite manhwas at the moment and really hope it can keep it up.

Art is nice, and the comedic expressions are very well-done.

Characters are well-developed as well. MC is an OP youngin', but there are valid reasons for his ridiculously strong martial arts. It's not like his skills just popped out with a simple "he's a genius" explanation.

That said, I do have to note his reincarnation really only comes into play regarding his otherwise inexplicable skills. His is kinda childish (through progressively less-so) and his attitude towards his parents in this life is respectful and surprisingly loving. (The family fluff is adorable and heart-warming.)

He does refrain from calling his mother "mommy" in favor of the more formal "mother" (which I suspect was '엄마' and '어머니' in the original), but otherwise, his age/experience does not carry much weight in his interpersonal relationships or general bearing. At least until he starts meeting people from his old life.

His mentality being closer to that of his current physical age is actually a blessing imo, though, because his love interest is around his age. If he behaved as his cumulative mental age, any romance would come off more than a bit pedo-/ephebophilic. So. It's better to think of him as a teen with the skills of a grown man.

His family and even some of the servants (especially Kyungho) have their own personalities, and their interactions with the MC don't feel forced or one-dimensional.

I even liked the female characterization (mainly represented by his younger sister) up until chapter 36. The rest of the female characters are the hackneyed "to be admired and protected, but rarely seen or heard" type, but Seoyeon's determination, eagerness, and aptitude in martial arts was refreshing.

It's not often you have a female character physically talented without her body being exploited for fanservice.

Then came the usual sexism - which was obviously disappointing after being spoiled(lol) by decent female characterization. The mother's character is wholly unremarkable and part for the course in terms of soft, genteel maternal figures in manga, and she is the one to ruin Seoyeon's character for me.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At chapter 36, her mother forces her to begin learning "feminine" things, like horticulture, cooking, and refreshments. At Seoyeon's understandable protests and insistence on continuing her physical training, their mother says, "You can, my daughter. You are a a girl even on the inside."

This, on its own, is irritatingly gender role restrictive and sexist, but worse in light of what the mother says to admonish the father about letting their son choose his own path in Chapter 5.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm speaking of when she says, "We should first respect his decision to pursue what he wants to." This is in response to the father seeming overexcited about his potential genius as a scholar (rather than a martial artist).

I will say that the female characterization is marginally better than what we normally see in vaguely historical fantasy manga/manhwa, but...

Well, chapter 36 was about when I dropped the series last time, in favor of Gosu, but hopefully I'll be glad to stick with it on the re-read.

Atm, would rate it about a 6 or 7?

Edit: glad I did a re-read, if only for the characterization and development of the main character. His personality is refreshing, too, in terms of shounen archetypes. He's jovial, but not an idiot, and friendly, but not a pervert. It's super fun to see him curbstomp his adversaries, too.

Hats off to the author and artist for making a very entertaining manhwa! The premise is very simple but the execution is stellar. The characters may not seem that interesting but the interactions they have especially the with the MC gives them so much life! 50 chapters in and hoping to read another 200...
