This is gonna be good!

... I think he is bluffing, I think he simply wants to properly fight the Old Guy, not execute him so he gives him some motivation.
Also maybe a test of the old Guys True Character.

Yep. I agree

What happened to my martial arts comedy webtoon and what is this shit?

WTF why did he turn so edgy.

I'm sure he just wouldn't feel right to kill him without a fight, so he told a little lie to provoke him. 

WTF why did he turn so edgy.

Edgy

I don't think that MC is really planning on killing them, he just wants him to think that they will die because of his mistake even if he is the one to die... So that when he die, he won't be at peace... Our MC even if he is in the right, i pity him for having a vow like that....

People need to realize he is pretty much indoctrinated. Like a child in ISIS. Looks like this revenge thing is coded into his genes. I find it interesting, it's a rare flaw to find in protags without it being some form change. I'm also pretty sure his threats were just to agitate raisinface.

Suddenly i remember this line

Now he isn't looking so innocent, sweet, and kind. Even willing to kill the villagers..... Damn...the vicious has come out.

What's with all the confusion in the comments? At the very beginning of the series, Ryong, armed to the teeth, set off with the singular intent of hunting down and killing his masters enemies. Period. The only reason he didn't is because he was told they were dead. But even then he still paid a kings ransom, just to confirm this was true. Even while living a normal life, his focus was STILL on finding these men. The second he did, he went after them. This isn't him being edgy, seeing as he's plainly stated his intent. He was NEVER naive, he simply didn't have their location. He isn't brooding, he's waiting. And he's not a bad person. A bad person would have slaughtered every single innocent in front of him to achieve his goal. A bad person would have destroyed those kids as an example. Ryong is the exact same character he's been since the prologue chapter. Only now he doesn't have to hide that part of himself. 

Lol what's he waiting for?  An opportune moment?  A guy like him can make that "opportune moment" appear like nothing.  He's thinking.  He's weighing ugly's actions against his revenge.  He's brooding on that internal struggle and actually having something stop him for once that isn't brute force.  Or in other words, he's moderately (key word: moderately) edgy - and that is not to say this is actually the negative conclusion that I find most people jump to.  It just isn't as good as I felt it could have been.

 

I'd imagine someone like Sugimoto the Immortal would've already decided and moved on by now, and he would have done so in a way that I would most certainly have been satisfied with (killed or not killed he would have got shit done).  Ryong doesn't have to be Sugimoto, but I did expect something much closer to that than what we have here - a much more normal despite OP protagonist.

 

I will agree on one thing - in that he hasn't changed, I just set my expectations too high.  He's a lot more boring now 'cause of these developments.  But the art was always good.  I can't honestly say it's better this chapter than it is in most of the others.

Man, all this revenge and morality stuff aside, this last issue was really beautifully drawn. Some of the best art we've had in a bit.

 

Yeah it's nice to take in the landscape that hasn't been ravaged by martial artist for once^^

I completely agree with you. The look he has right now, and his "character change" according to some people aren't actually a character change, it's his frustration showing. Can you imagine searching for something and when you finally get a lead on it, a ton of useless people and things keep getting in your way? Especially when you have a Character like he does, he doesn't want to kill the innocent, and he most definitely won't kill children, women, or the elderly. 99% of the people picking fights with him age grown men. And that's what's happening right now. They don't realize that their deaths are meaningless and it won't change anything.

I'd hold off on that women and children claim in a battle manga/manhwa, as they can be pretty damn deadly under certain circumstances.

Complete change in character for the MC. Any bets that the "abilities" he was using during the last fight caused the changes?

Yes pls kill them! 

Oh great, now he is a bad person.

He sure turned edgy awfully quick.  Can't say I like these developments much.

 

I was expecting a little more balance between the edgy and naive shounen protagonists in the form of middle ground, not hopping from moderate naive to moderate edgy.

 

The point is that I expected less brooding and quicker decision making.

The problem is that who deserves to deliver the punishment. Don't know if I miss sth, but the MC didn't suffer from whatever the villain did to his master, and the society is basically lawless (no government/ law enforcers shows up when stuff happens), so from what I see, no one has the right to judge the villain yet (we only know the story from one side).
And the "revenge for his master" sounds really weak as a reason, considering that the master told MC to live his life, not killing, so who is the MC fighting for? Against a weakened enemy that saved him no less.

Eh.. Ryong's master saved his life. That is why he was living with him and training under him in the first place. Second of all, Ryong's master telling him to not kill IS why he is slightly torn on the issue, however in that same flashback Ryong's master was shown to be very senile.

 

The real reason Ryong didn't kill everyone there was because he doesn't harm innocent people. Him saying, "If you don't get out of my way I assume that you are ready to die." to the armed guards is because he was about to kill everyone there. What stopped him was the arrival of the villagers, nothing else.

 

The artist even makers this obvious with the change of pace when the villagers arrive. It goes from focusing on Ryong's angry eyes to hiding his expression, then focusing on the rocks, and then the villagers who threw them.

Revenge isn't about justice. It's not about having the right to judge and/or punish. As you've said - It's a lawless society and from what we have seen so far, we could say that "might makes right". Maybe Ryong considers the revenge as an obligation towards his master. Maybe his revenge isn't in the form of killing either (considering what he said, in this chapter).

Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but somehow I get the feeling that the villagers arriving was all planned.
