Solo Leveling Novel, Chapter 186
Solo Levelingi 186
Go Gun-Hee turned off the TV .
It is already 9 pm .
It is too late to be working . However, Woo Jin-Chul seemed to have something to say .
“China has been asking for data about Hunter Sung Jin-Woo . ”
-“Data? You mean personal information . ”
“No, Nothing like that . ”
“They asked for public materials such as Sung Jin-Woo’s Raid record and related articles . ”
If the Chinese are not fools, they would not expect to get personal information of the S-class hunter, who may already be beyond that .
‘But why is China only interested in Hunter Sung Jin-Woo now?’
He must have already clearly expressed his views to refuse any love calls fron any country, including China .
“It wasn’t the Chinese government wwho requested the data . ”
“It was a request from an individual . ”
-“Individual . ”
The Hunter Association, who represents a country, does not give data to any individual hunter .
But what is it about this individual?
When Go was wondering how he should refuse, Woo gave additional information .
“I think China’s Seven-Star Hunter Liu Zhang is interested in Hunter Sung Jin-Woo . ”
Go Gun-Hee’s reply was stopped by the unexpected name .
China does not follow the global standard Hunter rating system, but uses its own .
The higher the number of stars, the better the hunter, with five stars as the highest rating .
Liu Zhong was the only person to be graned a seven-star rating .
Of course, his treatment he receives is also different from the others .
However, no one argues about his good tretment, because he is widely known as a nation-class hunter .
He had the ability, and China honored it .
‘Liu Zhang is interested in Hunter Sung Jin-Woo?’
Why is this happening?
Woo Jin-Chul satisfied Go Gun-Hee’s curiosity .
“Do you remember the giant who escaped? It seems like Liu Zhang is interested in Hunter Sung Jin-Woo becasue he defeated all the giants . ”
Is that so .
Go Gun-Hee nodded .
Recently, a giant escaped Jin-Woo’s onslaught and escaped from Japan to CHin through the sea .
The magic beast was known to have been killed off by Liu Zhang of China’s coast .
-“The strong recognise the strong . ”
Go Gun-Hee had a mischevious smile .
The [Hunter Bureau] invited Ahjin Guild .
While the best hunter in China, Liu Zhang is showing interest in Jin-Woo as well .
Both the US and China have finally begun to appreciate Sung Jin-Woo’s true value .
Go Gun-Hee, who knew his true value from the beginning, was proud of him .
‘That does not mean I can give I can give him any data . ‘
Why should we advertise our strength to those who envy?
The nation-level hunter may get a little cranky, but what about it?
We have Hunter SUng Jin-Woo over here .
Go Gun-Hee, who concluded his thoughts, said with a big smile,
-“About that request, the answer is no . ”
The dungeons have changed .
That was Jin-Woo’s inpression while clearing away the high-level dungeons generated throughout Japan the past few days .
Jin-Woo’s gaze became sharp after looking inside .
He should feel the spirit of the beasts, but could not see them .
It was a situation that can be confusing for people who are dull or lack experience .
But neither applied to Jin-Woo
‘Are they above me?’
Stopping his feet, Jin-Woo looked up .
Sure enough .
Just a little in front of him, a kind of liquid dropped . The floor burned where the liquid had fell .
Smoke rose from the floor melted by the acid .
It smelled horrible .
Naturally, Jin-Woo wrinkled his face .
When Jin-Woo showed no signs of moving forward, large chunks from the cave celling came down .
The lumps that now clung to the floor slowly took the form of humans .
At the places where their faces should be were covered with white masks . Their bodies were unusual forms of black liquid . They were creature that could not be found anywhere else .
They numbered twelve .
Jin-Woo quietly called out his old friend .
The dagger appeared in his hand .
It used to be one of his main weapons along with [Baruka’s Dagger], but after he aquiried the [Devil King’s Daggers], it has stayed in his inventory .
He found a place to use it after that long a time .
Jin-Woo, whobriefly welcomed its familiar grip, threw the [Knight Killer] at the approaching creatures .
[Impale (Diabolo lll)]
*sound of liquid being ‘impaled’ *
The dagger flew straight through the heart a magic beast with a bloody roar . (*roaring sound of liquid being impaled*)
However, the dagger passed through the magic beast and pierced into the back wall without causing any damage .
Not only that .
The black liquid which stuck on the dagger when it passed through began to melt it .
The melting dagger became unidentifiable and flowed down the wall .
‘I knew it . ‘
He anticipated that an ordinary physical attack would not work .
If so .
The magic beasts attacked before there was even time to mourn for [Knight Killer] .
They moved swiftly .
However, Jin-Woo said, “[Power of the Ruler]”
The creature who were struck by the invisible hand were all thrown back at the same time .
The bodies of the magic beasts who fell and splashed everywhere slowly gathered and returned to their original shape .
“Huh . ”
Jin-Woo laughed? at their amazing resilience .
He wanted to call out the shadow soldiers to train using their resilience .
‘ . . . Oh yeah . ‘
Physical attacks, whether tangible or intangible, do not work . (ed: meaning Power of the Ruler did not work either)
So what should he do now?
While Jin-Woo effortlessly advoided their barrage of attacks, he noticed that one of the creatures was moving unnaturally .
Jin-Woo’s eyes narrowed .
If you look closely, the magic beast has lost one of its arms . On the white mask that was covering its face, a corner has broken off .
Perhaps it broke off with the creaturee was blown away by Jin-Woo’s [Power of the Ruler] .
‘Is that their weakess?’
A smile crept up Jin-Woo’s face .
It’s not hard to kill once you know how to attack .
Jin-Woo called out his buddies as the beasts advoided his pounding fists .
[Devil King’s Dagger]
Jin-Woo glared at the creatures as the daggers appeared in both of his hands .
Kwazing! (Sound of dagger slicing through the beasts maybe . )
A magic beast collapsed when struck my the [Devil King’s dagger] .
That was just the beginning .
With swift, silent movements, Jin-Woo instantly destoryed all the magic beasts . His movements were so elegant it was as if he danced through the creatures .
kwagang! (Sound made when Jin-Woo disappeared?)
At last, the remaining masks were all sliced perfectly down the middle, and the man-shaped liquid creatures all lost their forms and collapsed .
Jin-Woo neatly killed all 12 of the emenies, and sent his [Devil King’s Daggers] back into his inventory .
What if the person standing here wasn’t him?
Certainly some would have suffered before even realising that physical attacks do not work .
A few might have been sacrificed by the time they found out their weakness .
It wmay be possible that everyone would have died before even finding their weak point .
Even if it was an elite squad .
The creatures were strong, fast, and dangerous .
And this wasn’t the first time (they appeared?) .
‘Clearly . . . The dungeons have changed . ‘
Since the day he killed the giant king, mana stones disappeared from every dungeon in the world .
The minerals used to account for much of the magic flowing our of dungeons, but now they all belonged to the magic beasts .
In other words, it means gates of the same grade have become much more dangerous .
‘So many dangerous guys are starting to pop up . . . ‘
Jin-Woo’s head wrinkled .
If an agerave squad entered one of these gates, a major incident might be inevitable .
He has heard news of frequent acciedents from all over the country .
Feeling anxious, he left [Ber] to guard his house .
If it’s [Ber], he can handle the situation even if a few dungeon breaks occur at the same time .
‘But . . ‘
Not only have the appearance of gates increased in frequency, the difficulty of the bosses have risen as well .
At least for Jin-Woo,
It was easier to raise his level .
The presence of magic is still strong in the dungeon .
Inside the dungeon, Jin-Woo could feel a number of magic beasts spewing forth a terrible amount of magic .
A smile crept up Jin-Woo’s face .
‘Now that I’ve learnt the first opponent’s trick, how about we start hunting properly?’
The warm-up is over .
From now on, it was the beginning of a massacre .
“Come out . ”
Behind Jin-Woo, the shadow soldiers hiding in his shadow released their power .
He showed them how to do it, so they shouldn’t have any trouble anymore .
With Jin-Woo’s eyes as the signal, [Ygritte] advanced the soldiers in place of [Ber], who was forced to guard the house .
The shadow soldier’s footsteps resounded loudly throughout the cave .
The world’s best hunters set foot on US soil one by one to attend the International Guild Conference .
Among them were the nation-level hunters .
But Thomas Andre only helf interest for one person .
‘Tomorrow will be the ay Jin-Woo arrives . . . ‘
Having confrimed Jin-Woo’s schedule, Thomas invited Hwang Dong-soo to the president’s office the day before his arrival .
“You wanted to see me?”
Hwang Dong-Soo carefully looked into Thomas’s eyes . (ed: To study him, not for other purposes, of course :D)
It has been several years since he joing the Scavenger’s Guild, but he still feels uncomfortable in front of the guild master .
A strong-willed person with incredible power, not to mention his terrible sense of possessivemess .
Even Hwang Dong-Soo, an S Class Hunter, felt small in front of Thomas .
“Mr . Hwang”
Thomas went straight to the point .
“Don’t touch Sung Jin-Woo . ”
Hwang Dong-Soo widened his eyes .
His gaze, wondering how Thomas knew about this, turned to Laura, who was standing behind him .
Laura responded with eyes saying that she only did what she had to do .
The sound leaked out from Hwang’s mouth .
“I knew what happened between you two . I have my doubts, so I want you to make sure nothing happens . ”
Hwang Dong-Soo’s brother, Hwang Dong-Seok, went missing after entering a dungeon with Sung Jin-Woo .
All eight members from Hwang Dong-Seok’s team died, while the only two survivors held hands to build a guild .
Hwang Dong-Soo had many questions to ask Sung Jin-Woo .
His complaints clearly showed on his face .
“But . . . ”
But before he could say anything, Thomas raised his index finger and shook it .
Hwang’s lips drew a curve . Thomas smiled .
“I don’t remember letting you speak . ”
Just listen .
A clear warning .
Only few could give a threatening warning to a hunter of the highest rank .
One of them was Thomas .
Hwang Dong-Soo, who was well aware of the difference in ability between them, shut up .
Thomas stressed again .
“Never touch Sung Jin-Woo . During the conference, go to the villa the guild owns and enjoy your vacation . How about it, could you do me this favor?”
” . . . ”
“Mr . Hwang”
Hwang Dong-Soo nodded reluctantly .
” . . . I will do that . ”
“Okay, now get out . ”
With a stiff face, Hwang DOng-Soo quickly left the president’s office .
Laura asked anxiously .
“Do you think this is it?”
Thomas shook his head with a stiff face .
“No . ”
He just saw how hostile Hwang was . He won’t give up that easily .
“Laura . ”
“Yes . ”
“Keep an eye on Mr . Hwang until he leaves the US . ”
“Is he . . . going to let this go?”
Hwang only relented because of Thomas’s power . He’s not that easy a person to please .
But Thomas didn’t care .
No, he wasn’t that low to have to care about that Hwang’s antipathy .
Thomas, who scratched his chin worriedly, replied inconsequently,
“Well, it’s better to be a little stuffy than to die . “
