Chapter 176: Let’s Just Level Up

“So they want me to fuck off?”

Kang Chul-In murmured to himself.

He knew what had happened.

This was the collaborated piece of Alex Rothschild and Albrecht Vilhelm. 

The reason was obvious.

Right now, Alex Rothschild and Albrecht Vilhelm were still fighting over the Esmerelda territory. 

And to these two, the existence of Kang Chul-In was quite threatening.

If Kang Chul-In joined in this fight to get the Esmerelda territory, they would have wasted their time and resources. After all, they weren’t confident in fighting Kang Chul-In.

“Damned bastards… Soon, I’ll go crack your creative and innovative skulls open.”

Even though he didn’t like what they did, he had to admit that what they did was quite creative.

Who would know that instead of attacking Kang Chul-In in Pangaea, they would do so in his home country?

“M-Mr. Chul-In?”

Lee Chae-rin asked cautiously.

“What is it? Do you have some bad news?”

“Well… It’s not really bad news…”

“...?”

“Cute.”

“M-Me?”

At this sudden statement, Lee Chae-rin blushed.

“You?”

But Kang Chul-In stared at Lee Chae-rin blankly. His expression said ‘what the hell are you talking about?’

“W-Weren’t you talking about me?”

“About what?”

“B... Being cute…”

“Of course not.”

Kang Chul-In replied coolly.

“S-Sorry…”

“No, you don’t have to be sorry. It’s just… the things they do are just so cute, I want to kill them all. These cute little bastards…”

Kang Chul-In murmured, staring at the Ogres that had just escaped from Pangaea World. Of course, he was referring to Alex Rothschild and Albrecht Vilhelm when he said ‘cute little bastards’.

And meanwhile, the ogre…

-Uuuu? Uoooo…

Looked around, and pointed at a nearby building. It seemed to be marveling at these new things that it had never seen before.

-Krrr…!

But when it saw Kang Chul-In and his party, it bared its sharp fangs.

Bang!

Bang bang!

The ogre started to run towards them, causing the ground to shake.

It had finally revealed its instincts as a monster.

“W-What?!”

“M-Monster…”

“It really escaped…”

The security guards that had been hired by the RiverMoon group stared on dumbly, not moving.

It was obvious.

Even though these existences from Pangaea had been shown to the public, it was still a fantastical thing in the eyes of most people. They were unable to feel the threat from this monster, as they felt like they were in a dream.

Hmph, they can’t even come to their senses.

Secretly laughing at the security, Kang Chul-In stepped towards the Ogre.

“Hey.”

Kang Chul-In said.

“Have you come to look at Seoul?”

Of course, there was no way that the Ogre could understand what Kang Chul-In said.

-Kuaaa!

Shouting, the Ogre threw a fist towards Kang Chul-In. There was enough power in the punch to destroy a car.

But Kang Chul-In’s punch was even stronger.

BANG!

Kang Chul-In’s fist hammered the Ogre’s face, or more accurately, its nose.

Puk!

The Ogre’s head exploded,

Plop.

And it fell, dead.

“Then you should have been careful.”

Kang Chul-In continued.

“Seoul is a place where you can’t stay alive if you let your guard down for even a second.”

“...What just happened?”

“...”

The security guards stared at Kang Chul-In differently now, with shock and fear in their eyes.

“Kuk… Kuku…”

“Pft… Hahaha!”

Of course, the people that knew Kang Chul-In beforehand were laughing.

Especially,

“Seoul is scary. Yep, definitely. Kuk... Hahahaha!”

“Welcome to Seoul~!”

“They don’t call it a hellhole for no reason.”

The adventurers that were originally Korean thought what Kang Chul-In said was hilarious, as they all laughed.

“You there.”

Kang Chul-In said to a policeman that was here.

“Good luck, I’m going now.”

“...! Director Kang!”

But despite what the man was trying to say to him,

“I’m leaving now.”

Kang Chul-In turned around.

You guys… you cute bastards really thought that this would put me out of contention for Esmerelda?

Kang Chul-In was really planning on ditching Pangaea World right now and returning to the actual Pangaea.

He had become triggered.

Kang Chul-In's response was---

I’ll drag my army to Esmerelda right now, and conquer it.

To give the ‘meat’ that was his backing from the Korean market, and to take the ‘bones’ that was the Esmerelda territory.  

The enemies had been the one to start this dogfight, so Kang Chul-In was planning to join in.

“Director Kang!!”

But even while Kang Chul-In was thinking, the man in charge, Officer Hyun, came to him.

“Director Kang… The police… It’s not that we didn’t trust the Galaxy Corporation… It’s just that the circumstances…”

At that moment.

BANG!

One of the walls in Pangaea World collapsed, revealing a crab the size of a dump truck. It was a level 50 monster, the ‘Heikegani’. 

“Kyaaa!!”

Screams could be heard from around the place.

“S-Save me!”

The large legs of the Heikegani started to crash down towards the woman that had screamed.

“Wahh~! Wahhh~!”

The crying of a baby could also be heard.

The woman didn’t let go of the baby in her arms even when the legs of the Heikegani started to fall down towards her. It was motherly love, the love of a mother towards their child.

“N-Nooo!”

Looking at this, Officer Hyun took out a Smith&Wesson pistol, one that was used by the Korean police force.

Bang!

Bang! Bang!

But even though the shots were fired, the Heikegani ignored it, and tried to eat the woman and the baby alive.

“Kyaa!”

The woman, the mother holding her child, continued to cry out in fear.

1 second?

Or maybe even 0.1 seconds?

The woman was about to be ripped apart in the claws of the crab…

But at that moment, Kang Chul-In leapt out.

BANG!

With a loud noise, Kang Chul-In’s fist collided with the large claws of the Heikegani.

“Run.”

Kang Chul-In said to the woman holding her child.

“If you want to live with that baby, run.”

“...!”

“Quick!”

“T-Thank you!!”

At Kang Chul-In’s words, the woman bowed towards him, and began to run away crazily.

“Hu…”

But Kang Chul-In sighed, annoyed.

To be honest, he wanted to just return to Pangaea and conquer the Esmerelda territory, and snatch it out of Alex Rothschild and Albrecht Vilhelm’s hands. Ignoring what would happen to South Korea and the Galaxy Corporation, he just wanted to fuck those two bastards up.

But,

God dammit…

When he saw that a newborn baby was about to become a meal for a crab monster, he had to change his mind.

These were innocent people.

They were people that were being sacrificed because of the fight in Pangaea.

Ha… Just this once, I’ll play along with your plans.

Using his superhuman patience, Kang Chul-In calmed himself down.

It was impossible for everything to go well at all times.

Of course, Kang Chul-In was planning on revenge.

“Slayers!”

Kang Chul-In shouted.

“Yes!”

At Kang Chul-In’s shout, the adventurers that were part of Team Slayers replied.

“It’s time to level up.”

Kang Chul-In said.

“Sorry?”

“...Level up?”

The adventures of Slayers tilted their heads in confusion.

“Since we need to get rid of this anyway, just think of it as practice, and a way to level up. After all, isn’t there no need to search through Pangaea for these monsters anymore?”

That made sense too.

“T-That’s true…”

“Wow… Milord… What a genius…”

Understanding what Kang Chul-In was saying, the adventurer nodded their heads in unison.

These monsters were those that they would have to search and track for 2 to 3 days if they were lucky or even a few weeks if they were unlucky.

“Let’s go.”

Kang Chul-In said, walking forward.

“Time to level up.”

This was the moment where Alex Rothschild and Albrecht Vilhelm’s strategy became a method for Kang Chul-In and his party to level up.

-----------

At the same time.

“These crazy bastards…”

Unlike Kang Chul-In and the adventurers that were filled with "positive energy", Kwak-Jung was raging.

Just like he had reported to Kang Chul-In, monsters that were over level 40 were pouring out from Sadang, Yeongdeungpo, Seoul station, Sindorim, Shinchon, Eowha university, Cheonho, and Konkuk university.

Thanks to this, Seoul had turned into a chaotic hellhole.

“They’re trying to stop Milord from interfering with their battle in the Esmerelda territory… That was smart of them. Those damned creative bastards…”

Thinking the same thing as Kang Chul-In, Kwak-Jung gritted his teeth in frustration.

“First… we need to clean up.”

Rather than thinking of a way to strike back, Kwak-Jung decided to first clean this mess up.

“Just you wait, you damned bastards. You dare try to shake Milord? Just you wait… And you’ll see how we recover from this…”

-----------

After deciding to clean Pangaea World up first Kang Chul-In,

-Your level has risen by 1! Level 63!

-Your level has risen by 1! Level 64!

Was leveling up crazily, which he hadn’t done in a long time.

“So this was just a way to waste time, huh.”

After he had just choked the giant snake monster, the Gorgatris to death, Kang Chul-In murmured.

But,

Clack… Clack…

This sound that came from somewhere else caught Kang Chul-In’s attention.

“Hmm?”

And when Kang Chul-In turned his head to face the direction of where that sound came from, 

“What… the fuck…?”

He was completely startled.

Because,

-Kuooooo!

A terrifying undead monster, a bone dragon, was flying across the sky of Seoul!
