I normally reserve my reviews till I've finished a novel, but I've just finished chapter 78 and after tearing up over the "death bowing" part (and I DO NOT cry easily) I literally cannot hold back on writing my review for a moment longer: This novel is an absolute masterpiece! The way the author was able to evoke all the turbulent emotions and suffering the MC went through during this arc was just insane! Am I even reading the same novel from chapter one?! The plot progression and character development... more>> is on a whole other level! My expectations have been completely surpassed in every way! Trust me on this, whatever generic themes you're thinking this novel is going to be, its not. It's more than that. Never in a million years did I expect that what starts out as a comedic and "typical" storyline would go in this direction and become something so serious and thought provoking. As the story progresses, the smooth pacing, action and battles are all still there, but the setting and reasons behind it turns so much deeper and more emotional. What I feared would end up becoming "repetitive and overused" (like his dying skill) is actually quite meaningful in the context of his mindset when using it. (At least going off of the arc I just finished!)

To basically sum it all up, throughout the novel itself, the character development is amazing and the whole plot is much more intricate than you first think! The writing quality itself keeps getting better in my opinion, and you really feel like you're right there inside MC's thoughts whether you agree with him or not.

Also side note, so far there's no annoying pointless harem :) He seems to treat the guild members more like comrades than any potential love interests. (Hopefully it stays that way! I've seen some reviews mention romance but I'm nearing 100 chapters in and haven't seen it yet!)

Anyway even without having finished the novel completely yet, I can confidently say this is the best web novel I've ever read. In fact from now on I'll be comparing everything I read to this... I'm not sure anything after this will be worth 5 stars to me again! So in conclusion, don't worry about these other ridiculous low-star reviews complaining after only a few chapters in... Sounds more like they dropped it before things started to get good! Definitely give this a chance. You won't regret it :)

(Also lol my username has nothing to do with this novel, but a funny coincidence! XP) <<less

so first of all I have to say I'm not into romance novels, if I say it is the only topic I don't read but if a novel got a romance to some degree it's like a spice for me in the novel that makes it delightful, but in this novel, I got bombed with an atomic bomb of sugar candies and pink cotton candies, this sudden change in the novel made me shook a little. I wished that novel gave us the signals of heavy romance from start, not... more>> after 100 chapters. And the translators want to stick to the original writings of the author but their preference of choice for words that don't exist in English isn't quite for my taste. <<less

*Re-reviewed at 2020 July 3rd*

Well, I've completed the novel and in my view, I think this novel is one of the best action Korean Webnovels, comparable to Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint and Overgeared. And I'm not saying that as joke. This novel is a story about human emotion

The way the author expresses scenes and the pain that people go through is exquisite. The words he uses, the scenes and the struggles the characters go through is simply breathtaking. I'm jealous of the way he can make use of words to craft a scene is incredible. I think that among all of the web novelists in Korea, this author ranks top out of all of them in skills of writing. I truly hope that the translations can properly convey the emotions in this novel and I will be severely disappointed if that does not turn out to be the case. The comedy is excellent and the sad part will have you shedding tears. And all of the side characters are developed, making relatable and their actions understandable. Some will have secrets that shock you. And the main character, you will love this man, his humour and seriousness when the situation calls for it. Of course, the novel is not perfect. There are some implausible events, some that are a result of poorly thought-out scenarios. In fact, the author had to rewrite a few chapter because the situation presented there was so rubbish that the readers unanimously agreed that this was one of the worse arcs he's written. But again, the writing manages to cover up for most mistakes.

In conclusion, I strongly recommend you to read this novel because I guarantee it, you will love this novel

The spoiler below is my previous review

Spoiler

YES. I have been reading this novel in Korean for AGES and trust me when I tell you that this novel is top-tier.

The MC starts out with a horrible personality so the start might be a turn-off for the most of you reading this. BUT like Overgeared, he gets a better personality only he improves at a much rapid pace than Grid (Also a great novel by the way, try reading it).

This MC does have a cheat skill combination but it's not like other novels where the MC's just use it to dominate everyone, he uses it to create a scenario where it results in something everyone is happy and well. I can see alot of people saying that the novel might be boring because we basically know that the MC is going to survive. This isn't the main focus of the novel. Instead, the MC as I mentioned above, trys his very best to create a scenario where everyone can be happy. And THAT is what makes this novel so good. I recommend you read it and just endure the first few chapters.

So, I'm a professional writer and editor irl, and what I really appreciate about this story so far is its comedic timing. In the action scenes alone, the writer included interesting descriptions while also utilizing space breaks for solid emphasis and timing effects. By including these details, we not only receive good characterization but also good pacing and action. This author knows how to effectively kill more than two birds with one stone. It's really lovely to read.

On a personal front, I really like how Kim Gongja admits how pathetic... more>> he is. I also like how his mind works. He thinks in details (we get this by what he focuses on in his observations). He plans and then executes it carefully and mindfully. Just these characterization details about him makes him a readable and interesting character to follow.

I'm totally ready to follow this character and see where he's going from here on. I recommend giving him a chance. <<less

The jerk finally found my leather wallet and smirked. “Let’s see. One gold, two gold, three gold... Hmm. About sixty gold? You’re so poor, mister. Carry some more around, man.”

“That’s all I have... ” All I f*cking had to my name.

“It’s alright. I’ll spend it well on your behalf.” Yoo Sooha took my wallet and patted my head.

4050 days ago, no. He was just like when he burned me alive 4050 days later.

“That’s just life, don’t you agree?” He took out something from his chest with a heave, after putting away the potion he’d promised to give me. Instead, he pulled out a blade. A sword (劍).

It wasn’t an item meant to save lives. On the contrary, it was a tool used to take lives.

‘Ha.’I looked up at Yoo Sooha. Rather than looking angry, I just looked at him as if he was ridiculous.

However, Yoo Sooha interpreted my gaze differently and shrugged. “Hey, don’t look at me like that. I was thinking about giving you the potion, mister... but if I let you live here, you might want to get back at me later, right? I can’t let that happen. A man should live without worry, and since you’ve seen my face... ” Yoo Sooha smiled. “You have to die for me.”

The MC is evil with a hero complex.

His ability seemed kinda unique at the beginning, however, once he used the ork language to kill an ork, it went all down hill. Because right after this point, we are introduction to his 'spiritual teacher' training methods. Which WILL become the sole reason in which the author uses to defend why our MC is already at levels of OPness that makes every side character seem like blubbering child compared to him.

For example: the first floor boss is a complete joke to read.... more>> You have to believe that every other ranker couldn't get passed it, and that somehow our MC completes it by a s*upid mechanic no one thought about before hand. And another one is when the top ten challengers from a previous floor are allowed to pick sides between the goddess and demon king. Where we are then introduce to the local standard of intelligence we are expected see from now on, as everyone turns out to be dumber than our fav rock (MC). And don't let me get into the way he talked down to all the ranking guilds like they were tr*sh and taking up a gamble with them. Where he somehow succeeds and can now act as a solo ranker because of plot along with no questions being raised.

Well besides that, I did notice that a human lie detector was introduced during that goddess/demon king stuff. However, her sole purpose was to force the development of getting the sword saint to be a teacher for the MC as his emperor ghostly one wasn't enough for the OPness the author has in store for us. Where in turn we are suppose to ignore the crucial fact that the saint murdered the MC in the very first chapters, with a very good reason too.

Also on top of that, it turns out our lie detector is a bit faulty and someone sided with the demon king before all hell broke loose. But, fear not though, because our lovely MC has everything in the bag. He can utilize his silver tongue in such a way that he can talk down a murder hobo and play everyone like a fiddle. Not a single time in any of these events did he ever require a 'do over'. So instead of Suicide Hunter, let make the title. The Generic Rise of a Evil Protag. As everything that can go wrong will go wrong and our MC will be their to 'fix' it for his own gain.

Overall, this fic is overly rated. I wasted enough time reading dozens of chapters about our amazing MC that I thought it was a CN biography of a young master.

anybody with a brain can tell the MC isn't right in his mind after dying 4000 times, and him being crazy isn't a reason to rate 1 star, why would anyone even try to read KR novels with more than 4 stars if he only likes beta JP MC, just go to find novel JP 3*/4* harem and u're done

also the flame emperor clrearly tried to kill him, u can say it looks forced but neither the author nor us wanted to have an essay about why he was already evil.

it's okay. World building is garbage, characters are mediocre, skills are op, main character messes with time so much consequences dont matter.
really wanted to give it a 2, but I enjoyed the few chapters I read. Its pretty much shlock.

revently updated review - author is f*cking insane, the universe is bending over backwards to make everything possible, even if it makes no sense, so the main character can act like he is winning via his suicide super powers. There is no longer a coherent basis for time or consequences.

First of all, the formatting and translation of this novel was done very beautifully :))) I could tell the people working on translating this put a lot of work in to make it look nice, and I appreciate it a lot!

Second, like the other reviews say, this character is actually pretty relatable. He has emotions and shows them because he's human.

And third, but not really, I really hope there isn't romance bc usually it ruins the story

From the name, premise, and start of this novel I would have easily written (hehe) it off as some wish-fulfillment mediocrity. I do partake of them time to time, cuz they're fun, but they don't leave a lasting impression. I found it through its manwha, of which I read up to chapter 34, the latest chapter at time of writing this review.

At first I struggled to get through the first chapter, and began to expect very little of it. Typical premise, typical garbage MC. I quickly found out how wrong... more>> I was. The protagonist soon became very likeable, and his chemistry with the main supporting cast was also enjoyable to watch. There were also moments where I was genuinely surprised by the cleverness he displayed with using the few skills he had. By chapter 34 I had come to appreciate some of the nuances of the story and characters, and hearing favourable things about the novel, I took the plunge.

This is a goddamn work of art. The author has great skill in weaving a scene and constructing characters, and the translators also did a good job of conveying their words. The whole cast starts off seemingly simple, and gradually reveals their hidden depths. The author also plays with genres well enough to make the reader appreciate aspects of those stories they would not have previously paid mind to.

All of this stems from the author's masterful ability to make the reader empathise. Characters will go from being simple and s*upid to deep and tragic in a few chapters, and their experiences are heightened with poetic storytelling and beautiful imagery. There is a depth in the the author's empathy towards his characters that you can feel floating off the page. He speaks to their pain so vividly you'll start to worry what he went through, but it is never pain for the sake it. There is always some wisdom to be gained, some growth to be achieved, satisfaction to be had.

Once you pick this one up, you wont want to put it down. <<less

This is the one of the darkest and psychologically thrilling novels I have read in a long time. The MC is a masochistic maniac that gets tortured so far it is a cross between Solo leveling and Re:Zero. The first few chapters get you hooked and you feel the hunger for more.

__________________

I truly, wholeheartedly despise this novel.

... more>> Why? Because it's the type of webnovel that raises my reading standards. It dragged the line so high that I've come to fear my expectations towards other novels in the internet that I will read in the future.

Well, let's just get into it. First, what I disliked. To be honest, my initial impression towards this was less than stellar. The reason will be early spoilers but it's between me being nitpicky, author's characterization of the MC or just what I would call a flaw:

Spoiler

Basically, really did not like the way the MC killed off the Flame Emperor (FE). This is because in that scene where the FE murdered the Saintess, the MC heard that the Saintess was going to poison FE to death. MC had been in the Tower for forever so he must know how ruthless it is inside, with crimes and politics and whatnot that was not shown to the public. It was thoroughly demonstrated later that FE was a jerk 100% but that scene alone where the MC felt FE was a complete, utter irredemable bastard was so strange to me. Of course, he was murdered mercilessly to death for listening in so resentment yes there.

This was basically the barebones of what I didn't like about that scene. Felt a little like the MC jumping to conclusions and naively defending the Saintess. But my doubts were proven wrong the more I read so it was probably just me being nitpicky about the author establishing a villain.

[collapse]

Now, what was good about this novel was that it didn't take that long to completely sink its claws into me. The 10th Floor hooked me completely. The Empire arc was like boiling a frog (aka me). Then the murim arc and school arc beat me senseless, in a lack of words to describe how the author managed to evoke so many emotions in me again and again. The last two arcs made me want to erase the memory of reading them just so I could read them all over again.

I adore the way author used descriptions.

Spoiler

Examples: the land of white snow echoing the name of his master; scent of snow, the moon, the flowers and the red eyes of Raviel, even the voices and the atmosphere in the meeting of the admins of the Tower, etc.

[collapse]

I adore the way author wrote, displayed and emphasized emotions.

Spoiler

Examples: the children in the basement, the resentment of the Devil King, everything in the murim arc which was a blender of tears and suffering, the process of falling in love and being in love in the school arc, and MC's extreme and inhuman persistence, MC's honesty, MC's goodness, greed, stubbornness and humanity.

[collapse]

I adore the way author shaped characters to be so distinctive that it comes alive in my mind.

Spoiler

Examples: Every single leader of the top guilds, Sword Emperor, Sword Saint, Heavenly Demon, Raviel, Constellation Killer, the librarian even and of course, the MC himself.

[collapse]

I love, love, love the way this author wove this story, one with so many layers and one that resonates. This one is endless but it really shows 20th floor upwards. It's just so. Good.

All the examples above are just so limited. If I would type everything that stuck out to me, I would be going above word count.

And the great thing is? This is actually hilarious. The author has a sense of humor. Amazing.

This WN has moved me continuously, from tears to laughter. Had broken my heart into pieces and made it feel like it was dripping in nothing but honey. Sometimes the imagery made the whole chapter seem like poetry but sometimes it could just feel like a raw wound. The author had written something that felt, excuse my lack of finesse, beautifully human. I'm incapable of completely describing the adventure that was this novel in two or three words.

As a sidenote, here's my two cents on the romance aspect of the novel:

Spoiler

Yes, it was abrupt. Yes, it seemed it like it jumped at you out of nowhere. Yes, it almost seemed like a shoujo manga for a second.


But I feel like that's the beauty of it. Love doesn't politely knock on your door and ask you to sign a contract on renting your couch for the night; it just tears your door down, pushes you out of your bed and hogs the blankets. MC never had experience and the love interest was beautiful, seductive and intriguing with a dash of mystery. I say that a whole bunch of us would absolutely swoon if it happens in real life. Most importantly, the MC and love interest are regressors. It may not be in the exact same way, which was discussed in the WN, but it's like finding that perfect puzzle piece in the crowd of 7 billion? Of other pieces.
Really, you just can't go wrong with Raviel.
And sometimes, you just. Click. You fall, you're so infatuated and you don't even know why. And that's the reason that throughout this arc, they continuously find different aspects of each other they like. They start to trust and we see them bloom with each other. Basically, they were hardcore dating.
Plus, tell me you won't feel some kind of bond with a person that has similar experiences, aka regressing, and suffering as a consequence, aka everyone forgets and everything repeats, died together with multiple times and had the same goal, aka saving that world.

It's love, not logic, okay? Sometimes when your heart tells you to shut up and pine for someone, you just do it. As the WN says, love is a b/tch.

tl;dr The romance is not everyone's cup of tea but I admire that the author got balls to approach it in this manner. Maybe it's not 'realistic' (coughs) but at least it's not boring (and the writing was phenomenal in this arc).

[collapse]

There must be other plot holes or flaws or mistakes etc. But just for what I've seen alone in these 132 chapters, I love this WN. I love it. 5/5.

Also, thank you translators for your hard work! <<less

Decent KR regression-dungeon speed read. Basically "Edge of Tomorrow" + dungeons.
Nothing particularly innovative and pretty iffy world-building, but the character development is where it shines. As this is an early review, I'm assuming the world-building improves. 4 out of 5 stars.

PREMISE
An obsessive, despairing Korean man Kim Gong-ja is awarded a copy-skill with unreasonable limitations. Through a series of odd circumstances, he is able to regress into the past and seek to right wrongs, while attempting to break out of the dungeon and find new purpose in his life.

COMMENTS

(1) Nothing particularly new
- "GroundHog Day" (1993 rom-com about a man who relives the same day over and over again)
- "All You Need is Kill" (2004 classic JP sci-fi novel about repeating your life over and over... more>> again, but with an edgy military setting)
- "Edge of Tomorrow" (2014, Tom Cruise movie adaptation of "All You Need is Kill", with slight comedic undertones)
- "The Tutorial is Too Hard" (2016, dungeon monsters/NPCs with intelligence, personalities and backstories)

This novel (2018) clearly took on inspirations from all of these, which isn't a bad thing as long as it's well put together.

(2) MC development seems reasonable
MC Kim Gong-ja is an intense despairing man and it's hard to connect with the MC in the initial chapters. He is extremely jelly of successful hunters to the point of being pathological.

The author tends to write in achronological order so it takes awhile to figure things out. Once you do, the MC's personality seems relatively cohesive and you can look past his insane behavior (which seems to be a major gripe from the more negative reviews). Much better Reverend Insanity.

Post chapter 20, we learn that
Spoiler

quite a number of Tower migrants are likely Earth refugees/thrillseekers/abandoned populace

[collapse]
, so we're left to accept that MC might have a similar background, possibly entering the Tower to seek his own fortune. However, he gets a serious reality check in the beginning chapters when it's stated that majority of skills are luck of the draw from the beginning.

Even warped individuals can be "unfairly" awarded great skills. The initial antagonist Flame Emperor is one such individual. MC's despair results in him being awarded a nonsensical skill, and a series of coincidences allow him to ascend to greater heights. It's similar to how innovative pairing combinations of skills in RPG have an astounding effect (e.g. Divinity II's Chicken Claw + Ruptured Tendons). Along the way, MC appears to decide on his own brand of justice and seek to introduce some level of fairness into the system, which is pretty commendable. It does feel like a backhanded allegory of Korean society and class divide.

(3) Really weak world-building
Author doesn't bother describing how the Tower functions or people came to be.
Although there are hints that there might be more detail in later chapters, it doesn't appear as if the author has any real intention to flesh it out entirely. How the Tower governance, economy, social aspects actually work is a complete black box, and readers are supposed to fill in the blanks with their imagination.
Spoiler

-A functional economy, including cafes, smartphones, liberal news media, etc just exists. Readers are supposed to accept it all just worked out. There's a megacity in the 1st Floor, just because. You'd think a more reasonable scenario is a decent into anarchy/monarchy/feudalism given that there's no way for anyone to leave the Tower (entirely separated from Earth).
-The economy is singlehandedly supported with external dimension (Earth) assistance, with 1 single trader.
-Every human/non-human dimension has their own Tower, but the dimensions don't mix. Yet somehow MC's ghost companion (who doesn't appear to be human or from the same human dimension) is somehow able to mix with MC's human towers. This inconsistency seems odd, unsure if it'll be retconned or explained.
-Tower hunters levels up somehow after killing enough opponents, we're not sure how that works. There are level grades F-A, no idea how that works. The character sheet is laughably simplistic, no stats, nada.

[collapse]

There are more oddball developments, but these are just the ones I can recall off the top of my head. <<less

Not your typical adventure novel where the story revolves in conquering the tower by fighting. To be honest, I've struggled a lot in reading this novel because it became so boring that I forced myself to skip chapters by reading it fast. The most boring part for me is the arc for Floor 20-29, goodness, it's really hard for me to finish that arc that I skimmed it. Maybe because I like the typical action novel that I was shocked by the unorthodox way of conquering the tower. Floor 40... more>> and above are quite boring as well in my opinion. We also had an unnecessary romance like what the heck is going on, the MC just like a switch that was flipped suddenly became in love with someone so fast. I like the concept of the story but it quickly went downhill. I'm really disappointed that I expected so much from this novel. It went from 5 star to 3.5 but for the effort, I'll settle with 4. <<less

EDIT: Since people are curious, I read this novel through mtl. I'm good at it after years of practice lol

Great story up until the romance. It's like the author snapped his finger and went, "Okay, time for some romance. Let's make the MC fall madly in love in one second." I'm not even exaggerating, he went from having slight interest in her to obsession in one day. And considering just how much the MC hates losing, and is obsessed with perfect endings, it just feels like he hypnotized himself to... more>> fall in love, so he can have a perfect romance. I would've preferred a slow tower-climbing romance, not the MC basically forcing himself to fall in love. It doesn't help that the person he falls in love with is basically an npc in the tower, it really feels like role playing.

But if sudden, inexplicable, obessive, sickly sweet romance in the middle of a story with no build-up doesn't annoy you, it's a great story. Maybe I'll come back to it one day. <<less

The MC gains an ability to copy an ability from those who kill him. Through luck he found a method of resurrection from an as*hole who killed him. He is now able to return 24 hours from the time of his death but will be mentally traumatized based upon his level of strength. At this point he is a small fry so he has no penalty and in order to exact vengeance, commits suicide over 4000 times...

Anyway, he begins to climb the tower with this ability... Everything else is a spoiler so I'll keep quiet

This novel is beautiful. At first I wasn't particularly invested but the drawing were beautiful (I began with the manwha) then once I began the novel, I was just searching for something to waste time. But OMG. After I reached the first boss (10th floor) I finally understood the potential of this story. Now I am currently on the twenty two floor and I literally cried during the murim arc. This is definitely one of the best stories ever. People speak about the MC being a wannabe hero and all.... more>> This is their freedom. But the MC ain't edgy. He is great. He is someone willing to sacrifice many things to help someone. Perhaps it's cringe for some people but for me it's beautiful. The evolution from a envious bastard to what he is now was marvelous. One of the best characters growth. If I have to give a comparaison. Then think of Grid from overgeared. <<less

I find that the early story, plot and world building to be forced and crude. The driving motivations to action for the protagonist is lacking and incomprehensible. The first Antagonist's character and background is barely explored.

I couldn't understand the intense hatred the Protagonist felt that he was forced to ... more>>

kill himself 4000+ to travel back time and cancel the first Antagonist

Everything just seemed like an after thought and covering any holes after the fact. I'll keep reading hoping the delivery/writing will get better but I'm not a big fan of this way of story-telling. Most likely will leave the 1 star.

It's suffice to say, I did not like the early chapters and I was lost. It did not build or add into the story. I feel that it was only used to introduce time travel. In the same vein as other series' use of "getting hit by truck-kun". I wish it was more simplified or provided a better driving force for the protagonist to do it 4000+ times. I find the adventures fun but I just can't let go of the early chapters. <<less

I’ve read reviews that said the story went stale (honestly that’s expected of Korean Novels), however the beginning sequence was one of the most metal, bad-ass, and simply heroic passages I’ve ever had the pleasure of partaking in. Even if the story tanks, I’m so glad that I’ve bared witness to such a masterpiece of an opening. Until the story gets stale, 5 Stars!

I really love this novel

The MC is unique and I'm not talking about the first 10 chapters but the whole time I cheered for him

He's foolishly in love with his wife♡, and they are so sweet my teeth ache

Never felt like I'm eating dog food in my life before reading about them

Tbh it was the best romance I've read in awhile

And the 31st-40th floor were the best ??

Spoiler

Him and the goblins I couldn't stop laughing the whole arc

Him being a parent and all, everything was so cute

[collapse]

The story will make you both cry and laugh, the feelings Rollercoaster is no joke

pretty much all side characteres have a past even the bad guys, nothing in the story is a filling or unnecessary or not explained which makes you more focused on every detail

If I can I'd give it 10/5 stars ♡ <<less

interesting so far, I hope they don't drop it.

on a grammar note, I'm not sure who started spreading this but 'Saintess' is not an actual word. Both the male and female version of the word is Saint (for example; Saint Brigid of Kildare is one of Ireland's patron female Saints). This 'saintess' thing drives my OCD nuts!
