“If there existed a horrendous ghost among the hwarangs, who would it be? Of course, it’d be Seol Yeong-rang who uses necromancy to call upon ghosts!”

Hwarang Seol Yeong, who was named as the horrendous ghost who’d bring forth a great disaster one day.

There was only one way to get rid of the false accusations and return to his original position.

It was to prove he wasn’t a horrendous ghost by solving abnormal incidents.

Then, Ja Ha, the head of the previous generation’s hwarang, the man who killed a great evil spirit eight years prior and disappeared without a trace, appeared in front of Seol Yeong…

A fresh breath of air in the midst of all this isekai saturation. It's a very simple yet engaging premise where our protagonist, Seol Yeong solves supernatural mysteries to clear his name. It's kind of episodic in that each arc has its own ghost story to solve, but there is also an overarching mystery in the background. Because of this, this story is more Supernatural and Mystery (kinda like a Detective series) so if you're looking for a more Action-based series, you might prefer to go elsewhere. Regardless, it's a... more>> very interesting premise and there is no isekai despite the time related tags so that is also a plus in my opinion.

If you are curious about the time tags though, without giving too much away

they're kinda more features of individual arcs rather than part of the basic premise of the story so you don't need to worry


The novel also kinda just throws you into the setting and you have to figure things out as you go along but I don't think it's much of an issue - it works out since it feels less exposition-y and it feels fun when you get those little nuggets of information about each character.

And yes, the characters are pretty well done as well. Seol Yeong is quite honest and straightforward which is refreshing to read, meanwhile Zaha is kinda mysterious yet a bit of a troll which makes for some interesting character interactions between the two. SY also has three older (non-blood-related) brothers and they have a really sweet relationship where he listens to them well and they dote on him lol.

Sometimes I do get confused on what's going and who's speaking at times, but it got a bit better later on so I don't know if I just got used to it or the writing improved. Overall good story, and thanks to the translators for doing a good job. <<less
