I don't know what the author has against Chinese people (he calls them "chinks" and rambles on about how all Chinese products are sh*t every other paragraph) but it is really tiresome to have to listen to the same diatribe every single chapter. The plot and characters are really cliched. First you have this mage teleported from another dimension who is described as Gandalf, teaches this kid magic against his will, gives him a bunch of monies and then teleports the kid back to his own world to carry out... more>> revenge for him. And the reason Gandalf doesn't want to go back is because - get this - he's old. That's right, a 8th circle mage who has lived for over 200 years doesn't want to avenge himself because he's old. You'd think an archmage would have some way of dealing with aging? Nope. He's super powerful and wiped out the European mafia by himself and teleported himself from another dimension but he can't deal with aging. Whatever. The MC is the most stereotypical shounen protag. He's like the jock you always hated in school. His girlfriend is the most bland character in all of existence. The novel has only one description for her - pretty. Yep, she's pretty and that's all we know about her even though she's one of the main characters and appeared in over 7 chapters. It's another one of those single-trait one dimensional cardboard cutouts that plague all shitty 3rd rate webnovels. In one scene the MC and her go to some jazz performance and one of the jazz players get into a car accident and the MC went to take over that person's role. Like WTF this is just a high schooler's fantasy basically. Well the MC is just a high schooler but still, who wants to read that? Despite them going on multiple dates we haven't learned anything of substance about Yerin (nor the MC for that matter) other than that she likes jazz. The reason given for why the MC's girlfriend like the MC is that the MC saved her from being raped that one time. Fucking really? That's the lamest most cliched excuse for a romance plot there is. MC saves a girl from being raped, she falls in love with him. That's what I call lazy writing. Rest of the story is equally badly written. <<less

An enjoyable Korean story about a youth having a fortuitous encounter and training in magic. While somewhat of a cliche concept, the execution is great. I was laughing out loud (thank goodness I live alone!), and binged the whole story so far. I just wish the translators were faster!

not much translated at the moment, but what i've read so far is good.
this is the one novel where I might actually have to get off my lazy ass for, and learn a language for if it doesn't get translated soon :P

the comedy moments in it just has me smiling and at other times full out laughing. Which is a big fat + in my book
