My Younger Brother is a Hero


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

“Hyung, I’ll protect you from now on.”

After 10 years of being taken to the other world, he barely returned, and his brother, whom he had not seen for a long time, became a hero.

“In the past, my Hyung protected me, so now it’s my turn to protect you.”

‘No, I’m really strong. You don’t have to protect me.’

Anyway, according to his brother’s wishes, he was going to take a break now, but strange forces are targeting him…

Somehow but, a familiar man is kneeling in front of him.…

“I can quit being the guild leader, then can I follow you?”

“You don’t have to stop being the guild leader, and I’ll tell you about it if you visit me from time to time.”


To sign a contract without even reading the contract that protects me in exchange for just telling a story… He was a person who seemed likely to be deceived wherever he went.

“I told you to protect me. Wouldn’t it be hard to do that if we’re too far apart?”

MC and his brother rly is the definition of Brocon, lmao. Well, it understandable though, just like in S-classes I raised where they have some traumatic experiences and long time apart so they attached more importance to the other due to their guilty consciences in addition to some weird-placed stubbornness, but still loving.

Summarizing at c37, he's acclimating to the current world, has lovely doting family moments w/ his bro, we got to know bits n pieces of MC past before he got strong enough to beat anyone who messed w/... more>> him, then we got to know MLcandidate. Sadly, they just have a brother of an old friend-kind of relationship.

Many characters were also introduced like the GoV, hunter association, and various GMs of KR and other countries' Top Guild who also wants to snatch MC away or learns information from him.

Even though, honestly 'No Earthlings could do any harm to him at all.'

If not for MC doesn't want to make a big scene easily defeating opponents that others couldn't imagine horrifyingly, not conducive to fulfilling his lil bro's wish to protect him. Nor does he wants to go out of his way to pronounce to the world how freaking strong he's when he could just laze around under his cute little brother's protection.

That doesn't means he did well in hiding it tho, just his appearance is very deceptive and only those who have been beaten or intuitively felt sth would be mindful. That's right, not wary or cautious, quite the optimism as they couldn't see through him after all. They also calmed down knowing that MC is currently hiding his strength so he wouldn't do anything like beating'em in the presence of others.

Only the dog was scared sh*t every time being in the known, haha (as he experienced being squashed to meat pastes numerous times&knowing his daily matches with 1st Demon lord).


Oh yes, recently another pet lizard came~ Fire Black Drake~ mentioned somewhere was it? Quite entertaining and promising for now! Waiting for updates! <<less

Um, I don't know if I should really give this series 5 stars but it's okay. I gave it for translator!

... more>>

Hmm, I found it interesting at first. This series reminded me of My S-class Hunters.

But but but you see, I realized lately that the plot kinda changed into something I can't predict. A bit boring too. It just my opinion tho, please give a chance to read it!


I still read this series for archiving purpose haha! The series is still going on so I'm not sure where the plot will bring us! <<less

If the translator has to add (person a) to make it clear who's speaking, then the writer failed massively.
The whole thing seems like someone copied the text straight out of a webtoon, completely forgetting that without pictures, the reader has no idea what's going on.
In the rare cases that they did write some descriptive sentences, they are extremely chaotic, it doesn't help that some of the names are very similar and tons of unknown characters all show up at once.

That the MC hides his powers for no logical... more>> reason is nothing but frustrating, it doesn't come off as sweet or considerate, so his brother can "protect him", it puts said brother at serious risk of getting hurt and messing up his guild.
The overall lack of logic is just annoying, suspension of disbelieve has its limits.

Maybe I expected too much or one needs a certain taste to enjoy it, I couldn't find anything worth spending more time on this novel. <<less

It's a small headache trying to keep up with all the characters and their different POV/dialogues without any sort of indication letting the readers know what's going on.

From what I've read so far, it's a more infuriating version of The S-Classes I've Raised. Everyone is strangely overprotective (allies) or extremely obsessed (enemies) of MC. The entire plot so far is about everyone wanting him for themselves/their guild. No one has moved on from the initial disappearance, despite it being a decade earlier. Both ML's have actually made it their personality.

Despite... more>> knowing he is the most powerful person around, he doesn't want to spill the beans and hurt anyone's feelings so he does nothing. I don't really like these types of MC's and the plot tastes like a toddler made a cake by themselves and they only smelled the vanilla before adding to their heart's content.

I'm sad because I thought this would be a fun dungeon novel with a unique romance and I was greeted with empty shells of poorly written tropes. <<less

It's a vapid story about a returnee who looks weak and therefore must be weak and everybody wants him because reasons (the author can't be bothered to make any sensible ones up). The younger brother thinks he must protect his (weak) older brother and tries to pamper him. And yup, that's about it.

The translation was okay for the first couple of chapters but as soon as more complicated actions scenes emerged, the narrative and dialogue became confusing, fragmented, and occasionally nonsensical. I'm not sure if the original author is to... more>> blame, or this is a translator problem. Either way, it is not enjoyable to read.

I would very much like to know why this story has so many 5 star ratings. <<less

The plotline is easy to follow and intriguing, the character relationships are adorable, the list is endless.

The main character, Ji Hyeon-woo is quite appealing in terms of personality and thought process, especially when it comes to he younger brother, Ji Seon-woo. Their little gimmick that they have going on it so adorable and enjoyable that I can't help but rate this a 5-star.

I like the 3 main MCs but as the story goes on, I get annoyed with the older brother when he tries so hard to hide his real strength. Honestly, if he just show his real strength, things would have been a lot less complicated.

I had high expectations for this, and in the beginning it seemed good, but now the plot feels kinda draggy.

Like a previous review said, I was expecting more dungeon fights and a more engaging and unique plot.

2/5 stars for now but I won't actually rate it until I finish reading.
