Chapter 50 Illusion (1)


Inside a Dark room.


Someone touched a place on the wall with their hand.




The wall cracked to reveal a black safe.




The man who sighed as he looked at the safe was Chun Woo-kyung.


He then pressed a password to open it.


Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep!


When the safe opened, an old cell phone came out. It was a foldable phone from several decades ago.


It was one of those phones that had no function other than calling.


Trrring! Trrring!




After two dial tones, the call was connected.


— Yes yes, sorry I was late for work, so I almost missed the call.


A voice spoke.


Chun Woo-kyung replied with an expressionless face.


“You couldn’t help it, so it’s fine.”


— Work…. Seeing that you’re calling from this phone and not your regular one, it seems like the situation is pretty dire, right?


“I don’t have much time.”


— Fufuf, okay. Please tell me, Sir.


“I need a new secure server.”


— New server? Is something wrong?


“The server has been exposed due to an internal problem.”


— Oh-ho. Is that so? But the server’s IP is moving in real-time, so unless the problem is something very unique, even tracking it would be a problem, right?


The forged voice spoke.


The security of the server was thorough. It was impossible to track because the main computer, which was running the server, constantly changed the IP every hour.


“I will pay you.”


— Well, if you want it that much, fine. However, if it’s about securing a new server, you need to pay me at least a D-class core.


Chun Woo-kyung expected those words.


They had recently secured a core.


— I think I don’t have to tell you about the advance payment.


“… I know that. And…”


— And? Wasn’t it a single request? If not, we may have to re-discuss the price.


The altered voice spoke.


But Chun Woo-kyung didn’t step back.


“I want you to deal with one person.”


— This is surprising. I remember you said that you wouldn’t ask for anything other than technical support.


“Tell me if it’s possible or not.”


— Huhu, where is the target?


“Jinan city. We have to deal with him right away. However, none of the people on my side can handle him.”


— Seems like the annoying type.


Chun Woo-kyung’s eyes were serious the entire time.


Rather than annoying, that man was dangerous enough to ruin everything he had built so far.


— … Sir?


“Yes… I am listening.”


— You need to tell us how dangerous the target is so that we can set a price.




— That is the highest class.




— S-class level threat. It seems to have caused my dear customer a lot of trouble. Hmm, if that’s the case, the payment shall be an A-class core.


At that, Chun Woo-kyung bit his lip. It was much higher than he had expected.


An A-class core was very hard to obtain, even with considerable sacrifices.


— What would my dear customer like to do?


‘Damn it!’


But he knew that it was worth it.


“I’ll pay you right away.”


— Okay. You are indeed the big guy. I knew that you had a refined A-class core, but it’s still shocking.


“Enough! Can you do it right away?”


— No problem. In fact, the Gate Warning went off in Jinan City, so I was planning on conducting an experiment to secure the core as well.




— Yeah, something like that. Anyway, given that you are handing me an A-class core, we shall give dear customer an excellent service concerning the new server.


“… okay. I expected no less.”


— Please send the information about the S-class target. Bye




The phone call disconnected.


Chun Woo-kyung, who had been leaning against the wall for a long time, pulled out a cigarette from his inner pocket and bit it with trembling hands.


“How did I end up like this… Damn it! To die in the hands of some old remnant!”




The following day.


Inside the Yongchun Group’s main office in Jinan city.


Chairman Chun Yu-jang, who had undergone a splicing surgery, was wearing a cast as he spoke in an excited voice to Chun Yeowun.


“It has only been a day but the effect is amazing!”


The reason behind his excitement was simple.


It was because of the result of uploading the CCTV footage into the server that Lim Kang gave yesterday.


On the tablet PC placed on the desk, the figures of Chun Woo-kyung faction members that they had come into contact with were marked.


“In just one day, we have come into contact with 33 clans. Eight of which are high clans. It seems like we are off to a good start. Ancestor.”


Chun Yeowun’s appearance played a significant factor in it.


He boldly revealed his identity through the video and caused confusion and division in the Chun Woo-kyung faction.


The results were frighteningly quick, considering that the video was uploaded just 17 hours ago.


But Chun Yeowun wasn’t satisfied.




From what he heard, the number of clans in the present age was around 700.


Among them, 146 were currently in Chun Woo-kyung’s faction. But only 33 clans joined them, so less than a third.


“Still, with this momentum, it won’t take long for our faction to gain the upper hand.”


Chun Yu-jang viewed it positively.


‘I didn’t think that the presence of my ancestor would have such a huge impact.’


Chun Yu-jang couldn’t hide his satisfaction. However, Chun Yeowun suddenly asked with cold eyes.


“Your faction?”




“Oh! It seems like you are mistaking something. Do you think that I am giving you these instructions to highlight your faction?”




Chun Yu-jang couldn’t hide his embarrassed face when he realized that he had made such a stupid mistake.




“Let me make it clear. There are no factions in the Cult. Keep that in mind.”


“… I sincerely apologize for my foolish remark.”


Chun Yu-jang responded with a nervous voice at Chun Yeowun’s warning.


At the end of the day, he could feel his heart going smaller and smaller the more he tried to please Chun Yeowun.


“You! Stop working on Murim for the time being and concentrate on the company management and expansion.”




“Answer me!”




Chun Yu-jang had no choice.


Fortunately, that would mean that Chun Yeowun wouldn’t have any operating rights on the company, so money wouldn’t be lost.


Chun Yeowun was planning on dividing the current strength of Yongchun into two groups. One for managing the company, which Chairman Chun Yu-jang would do, and the other would work on matters related to Murim under him.


He thought that it would be more efficient as Chun Yu-jang could provide more intricate details about the current world.


“Huan Myung-oh.”




Huan Myung-oh, who was watching from the side, answered.


Chun Yeowun handed him something.




The USB that Chun Yeowun asked for last night.


“A total of 320 places.”




“The locations the server of Chun Woo-kyung was running from.”


“Huh? How did you…”


Huan Myung-oh couldn’t hide his surprise. He also had instructed his clan members to track it down.


However, they said that it was impossible to find because of the frequent change of IP.


Moreover, less than 30 minutes after the video was uploaded, the whole server was completely shut down.


In the end, he almost gave up, but Chun Yeowun had somehow managed to pick the locations of the computers running the server.


‘The Lord is good at hacking?’


Huan Myung-oh was shocked.


Of course, it was Nano who did it. Nano could easily hack the IP movement, but since there were 320 computers running it, it was impossible to find the real place.


“I’ll give you a week. Find out where he’s based.”




“Hang Yu-rin.”




As if waiting, she stood up and answered.


“How is the Jinan’s Murim Association movement?”


“As asked, I put a mark on all the clans that belong to the Murim Association in Jinan city. There has been no movement from the Jegal Cultural Foundation Side and the HB (Hwang Bo clan). It seems they haven’t figured it out yet.”


“If there is any movement to hold meetings or to convene Murim members into meetings, take action right away.”






A smile crept on her lips.


Chun Yeowun had ordered them to stop them before they could even meet.


All this time, the Chun Yu-jang faction had avoided friction with the Murim Association, so she was fond of this.


“Blade Six?”


Chun Yeowun had bigger interests.


Although no one of the spies belonged to Blade Six, he had no intention of overlooking them as just a long-time enemy’s descendant.


“I was going to report it, but last night, we found Six Essence’s men searching in Hwangseong park.”




“Yes. I don’t know what they were looking for. They searched until two in the morning and then withdrew.”


She seemed upset about not being able to find anything.


Chun Yu-jang seemed gloomy at the order to stay away from Murim when Chun Yeowun called him.


“Chun Yu-jang.”




“Did you say that not only the National Guards, but also the civil servants of Jinan city hall are under your favor?”




In order to have firm roots in the city, Chun Yu-jang had built a well-maintained relationship.


“Make an exception and receive a favor.”


“Huh? Exception…?”


“Secure all CCTV footage in the park and everything in its vicinity for 48 hours .”


“I see!”


Chun Yu-jang’s face brightened at the command.


He was worried that he had been totally excluded from the work of Murim, but he wasn’t.




The executives were shocked at how quickly things were going.


They didn’t disclose it as they feared that Chun Yu-jang would feel bad, but Chun Yeowun’s actions were swift.


‘When was the last time we had such a smooth meeting?’




‘He is the one who had revived the Cult in the past and he’s doing it again in our time.’


They thought that his martial arts were the best, but his ability to lead was also amazing. There was no comparison with Chun Yu-jang.


It was clear to them what Chun Yeowun meant when he said that their chairman lacked the qualities of a Lord.




Someone knocked on the door.


The person who entered was Bi Mak-heon.


The senior executives were puzzled because he wasn’t supposed to show up. But the man bowed to Chun Yeowun.


“As ordered, we have completed the recruitment of members for the vice chairman. We have selected 50 people with great skills.”




They nodded their heads.


They weren’t even sure when his office people were recruited.


Originally, it shouldn’t exceed 10 people, but the fact that such a large number was selected meant that there was a mission.


“I am not sure how you will feel about them. But those chosen will consider it an honor.”


“The highest honor a Cult member could ever get.”


The seniors said that. When.






A phone vibrated.


However, it wasn’t just one, but all the phones within the room.


The seniors looked at the screen on their phones. Their faces suddenly went stiff.




It was a test message from the HR team. A notification stating those with the best abilities in their departments had been transferred.
