Divine Bells - they choose their own masters and they determine the status, prestige, and influence of the countries their masters rule. The presence or lack of these Bells also has great consequence in the lives of each country's royalty. In particular, the personal and political futures of King Hong-Ryeong seem doomed without a Bell, but at equally great peril if he obtains one.

But are the Divine Bells simple magical charms, deities of great powers, or something else altogether? And when the owner of three of the eight existing Divine Bells dies, leaving them to choose new owners, where will the resulting turmoil lead?

Excuse the pun on the title, but it is a delightful series so far. It's fairly easy going, with colourful characters, light action and politics based on an interesting tradition of anthropomorphic bells with a hint of mystery behind them.

The series is still only starting, but it's appealing so far to any demographic. I'm looking forward to elaboration on the bells and a bit more tension to make the MC stand out a bit more. If I have any criticism, it's that the MC is a bit weak in the story, to this point.

Great story with a lot of potential so far! It's basically a dramatic mystery with a lot of court intrigue going on (especially b/c all of the characters are royals). Characters are starting to be fleshed out, and I look forward to reading on!

edit: Spotting some romance here biggrin

Okay, not gonna lie, when I first started this webtoon I felt like it was "overshadowed" by all of the bigger ones (ToG, Noblesse, etc). However, after a few months of waiting for all of the chapters to be translated, I decided to come back and finish what I started.

The first season was very 'okay-in-my-books-but-still-good'. I rushed through it, skipping over (probably) important details. However, I did enjoy the characters, although I basically skimmed through the plot.


As the series went on, it became more... mysterious and had me wanting more. It just pulls you in - might not happen to everyone, but it did to me. I started to question every character's credibility - including the protagonist.

Nearing the end of the second season, the author started unraveling all of the story's secrets - and let me tell you, I was darn surprised. This was probably the most surprised I have ever been with ANY manga, webtoon, comic, etc...


This is a pretty good webtoon. The plot is mysterious and actually MAKES you feel like you want more. Art is great, I enjoyed how colorful it can be (what can I say, I'm a colorful-art type of person). I felt like the author could expand more on the divine bells, but that's for season 3. The protagonist isn't weak, nor is he strong. It would be better if he were more, well... helpful.

As a whole I found this one quite good, plot is not bad, a bit generic but still the intrigue is for the most part well executed if predictable, but in any case, nothing particularly great, what I liked the most were the excellent main characters, quite interesting and I can't use the world original cause that is really hard to find but at least well done, humane for the most part and not cliched. It's a pity the motivations of Baek-Yeom underlings are all quite flimsy at best, it never made much sense to me why any followed him with no gain whatsoever, at least not a valid one (except Ha-Hyeon but still her story is a bit convoluted and I'm not completely sure it makes much sense)
Also. the final step of the evil mastermind is lacking
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
reset the world.... such a wait for a crap like that which we have seen so many times it's past cliched lame bad guys already.... that was a huge blow to this manhwa, there is nothing worse to a plot than having the main antagonizer be motivated by his/her own immaturity and pettiness believing he's the only who suffers and has the right to, another story of a pathetic pampered person with too much power for his own good and couldn't handle life

Lastly, other big flaw is that the fights suck and make little sense, there is no clear ranking and reasoning in the fights, the bells should be many times more powerful than the secondary chars they fight against yet they never, ever win one fight... it's really ridiculous and quite boring to be honest.
Still as I said, I enjoyed this one and can recommend it to any fantasy and medieval Asia story fans.

I like the plot, and the mystery in the story but all the divine bells were useless in my opinion....might as well use them for practical purposes... the fire one to light a stove, ice to cool down in summer and water to fill buckets....none of the divine bells hold any advantage over the antagonists. Its pathetic. There were many unnecessary deaths but I guess that was author's intention to do so to erase all the divine power stuff. Anyways its a good read for the author's first work.

Overall, I had quite enjoyable experience reading this series. However, I don't like the ending, to a lot of people, it may be good, but to me, the ending just shows how amateur the author is in trying to get some more attention for her work. Introducing a new key character when the story had been completed 90% is not a good idea. Forcing some unnecessary deaths is a really cheap trick in the effort of making the series unforgettable, I repeat UNNECESSARY deaths. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

honestly, i read this only because of the story. it's quite good and intriguing.
i'm not a big fan of manhwa (even it's colored) but this can keep me amused.
as a mystery-freak, i approve this.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
actually, the revelations are not that surprising to me. even i can predict what relationship between Ga-Bi and Hong-Ryung are. man, now i'm afraid of myself. lol.

the art is decent but not a big deal, just decent.
the author still can do better in the future though.
i'll keep tracks of this manhwa.

This manhwa feels like it comes straight out of a RPG, with various references here and there such as stamina, opposite elements etc. The story is generally light-hearted and even hilarious sometimes, but overall very well structured with some interesting plot twists. All of the main cast are likable. For the first half of the story your protagonist will impress you with his kindness rather than strength, but fortunately his companions are badass enough to save the day. He will be very enjoyable to watch in the second half though.

This manhwa becomes more solemn near the end, when it has to fulfill its shounen duties (i.e. your saving-the-world fare). Without giving away too much, the story is basically along the line of 'a social psychopath who had a miserable childhood and now wants to destroy the world'. I am grateful that the author did not try to be philosophical. Everything is dealt with quickly and every moment of sadness does not last more than 1 chapter. To sum up, if you want something deep or meaningful, then this is nof for you (though to be fair, nothing is deep or meaningful if the same philosophy has been repeated over and over again in hundreds of manga...).
