This is not for kids

Read the demographics, this is not for kids.
You don't need a character to tell you everything happening in the story like any kids oriented story does, you pick up the pieces laid by the chapters and have to see the flashbacks to see for yourself what happened.
If you were drawn in only by the marvelous art and action you might be disappointed that the story will not be chewed and regurgitaded for you to swallow.

Few mangas have left such a deep impression on me, but i can't recommend it to the regular manga reader, it is way too harsh, pain is the only feeling the main character has, it is the fuel that gets him moving.

I really cannot understand the negative reviews of this manga. Personally, I thought the story, characters, tension, and especially the ending were all amazing.

This is one of my all-time favourites. I recommend reading yourself and forming an opinion before skipping this due to negative comments.

Not Always Light Reading

The core concepts in this manga are doubt, self-reliance and relativity. Specifically, how doubt can corrode will and concentration, how self-reliance requires pain, and how different people can view the same perspectives wildly differently.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Munsu represents certainty, emphasized by his willingness to go through spectacular strife and pain in order keep his hold on his beliefs and do what he thinks is right. Aji Tae embodies the opposite, utter relativity, and his malleable view on the world is represented metaphorically by his ability to change the world around him. Similarly, his powers have great effects on those who have doubts, manipulating the tenuous basis of their beliefs and causing them to believe that his perspective is correct.

The perceivance of warped perspectives is a common theme in this manga, which makes a lot of the narratives less mechanical and more spiritual. For someone who's not really acquainted with this type of storytelling, it can make for confusing situations in which Munsu, the absolutist, will witness relative perspectives.

In the end, what Munsu offers isn't just the ideal of empiricism, but the psychology of facing painful truth, and how that applies to fairness. The first is embodied in the Ondal arc, where Peonggang continually sophisticates her beliefs about her brother and Ondal in order to avoid facing reality, and the botht in the Hwalbindang arc. Despite Hong Gildong's vocal good intentions, Munsu punishes her for tunnel vision when it comes to suffering. The Hwalbindang kill while absolving themselves of blame, and were quick to vilify when thinking otherwise would require them to seek out painful truths, specifically in the case of the puppet, child lord, and Munsu, who Gildong hears of as an Angyo Onshi wandering and doing good and decides to attempt to kill anyways. This forces Munsu to go through the pain of punishing his old lovers sister, with the implication form flashbacks that he was treating Gildong exactly as he would have treated Kye Wol Hyang.

It's not a perfect manga--sometimes the slapstick humor occasionally falls flat as a platitude surrounded by otherwise novel devices, and Sando's S&M hooker outfit surviving to the last chapter is totally bufeddling, but the art is gorgeous and the story unique enough to make up for it's saving graces, and beyond.

As a post-script, this manga's comparisons to Berserk are absurd. Their similarities are: a) dark, b) demons, c) resolve of main character, but the themes, styles, content and premise are wholely different.

Should have ended within 10 volumes

I agree with the previous reviewer, "fundefined." This is a series that started off pretty strongly, with an intriguing anti-hero protagonist. However somewhere in the middle, it became too draggy with all those flashbacks and a switch in focus to the comparatively boring backstory of the main character and his quest to defeat his archenemy. I gave up after Volume 11.

The art is above average, but not fully to my taste.

It was intense.
I don't normally read tragedy, I don't like flashbacks and usually I hate not having a red-string of plot I can cling to, but I read it until the end anyway.

If one ever gets the chance to rescue a chick dressed in leather strips, for the love of all things holy, buy the girl some clothes!

I couldn't take this series seriously.

Started off very strong

However the author did not plan out how the story would progress and added too many characters and settings that fundamentally changed the tone of the story. I was interested in the pseudo Korean historical origins of the main character and his powers but these later get overshadowed by generic fantasy tropes. The villain's relationship to the MC and his origin story wasn't interesting enough for me to be emotional invested in seeing him getting overcome. The first several volumes are incredibly strong and worth reading though.

Whoa, that was a really good manhwa, I did not expect such a good drawing. The story follows, was not bad, although it was a certain amount of such defects. At least I was most annoying about that beloved women sister. Altgouh story about their love was not bad, but why so much about them.... I even didn't want to read anymore. But anyway I liked. It was a long time since I read a good manga, really long time, but this manga will remain in my memory and I think I will read it again, maybe not just one time but 2 or even 6 smile

Im sure it is a great story but the action scenes are sometimes quite disturbing to me, almost horror-like I'd say. Its too much for me so I've dropped it, I might go back to it someday however.
