For those who dont know,'Noblesse S' is a online novel written by the author of Noblesse, Son Jae Ho. Unlike Noblesse webcomic,Noblesse S focuses more on school and personal life of the characters.
Noblesse S is a paid product and the author strictly prohibited unauthorised distribution of the novel.
Some chapters have been made available for no charges on Naver. Easy Going Scans have decided not to translate Noblesse S as it will be against author's wish and also the Korean residents who are fluent in English would decide to read the translated vetsion rather than paying for the original novel and in the end it will be a a setback to novel sales which will affect the author tremendously....(The outcome no fan wants to see).
Earlier chapters of Noblesse S are now free for everyone! Each week three new chapters are made free!!
Noblesse S on Naver!
Even if you don't understand anything it's fine! On each chapter, there is a new illustration by Lee Gwang-Su! It's similar to Japan's light novels!
Anyways,as the title suggests in thread the summaries will be posted for those who haven't read them yet.
Please note all the summary posted here are the courtesy of this blog and all the credits for summaries goes to dotoripop404. I asked him to post the summaries here to which he agreed but I guess due to real life reasons he wasnt able to do that.
Episode 1: A new Start(01)
Frankenstein’s specially prepared room in the laboratory on the 9th underground floor. D-Room.
That room was an aseptic particularly covered with metal on all four walls. Except for a heavily controlled entrance, it was thoroughly quarantined from the outside.
Inside the room were several metal tables and chairs made out of the same material as the walls. Partitions that, at a glance, could be mistaken for bookcases were installed into one side of the room. And in those partitions were diversly colored, neatly arranged clothing material.
Inside the room, Frankenstein stood in front of the clothing material in a cautious manner. He was wearing his custom-made glasses and a lab coat As to be expected, the glasses, along with the lab coat,was a personally designed outfit indistinctly showing the wearer’s vain nature.
Frankenstein worked his fingertips along the white garments, carefully feeling them one by one. After several delicate and cautiously handled garments, he nodded and and opened his mouth.
“Today, this one will have to do.”
Frankenstein lifted the selected white clothing material, carried it to a table in the middle of the room and sat. Then he opened the lid of a small box on the table. Inside the box, several needles of different sizes were smartly arrayed, along with a number of gleaming, honed knives. Frankenstein pinched a needle which he guessed to be around 6 cm With that he was holding a white garment in one hand and a sharp needle in the other, which is supposed to be a strange pose. However in reality, it looked quite natural.
Frankenstein took a deep breath and composed himself, closing his eyes just for a second.
The moment Frankenstein’s eyes flew open-
Shuuk shuuk shuuk.
The needle wielding Frankenstein’s hand started to pierce the cloth at a baffling speed. His needle moved sometimes severely, sometimes gently, sometimes as if it were moving along a rhythmic However, even with this practical sense-lacking movement, Frankenstein’s face didn’t lose its composure.
Shu shu shu shu shu shuuk…
As the sharp needle speedily proceeded, a charming white jacket began to form.
Shu shu shu shu shu shu shu shu shu shu shuuk~
As the jacket neared its completion Frankenstein’s fingers danced more furiously, to the extent that his hand’s form couldn’t be seen by the human eye…Then Frankenstein suddenly threw the garment he had been working on in the air with a flourish.
The airborne jacket slowly floated upwards. Frankenstein outstretched his fingers towards it.
Chwa ak~ Chwara rak~ Chwararara rak~ totototototototototo~
Thereupon as all the scraps that clung to the jacket fell off, it began to take shape in mid-air. Following Frankenstein stiching movements, the jacket’s true form began to emerge.
The white jacket fell onto Frankenstein’s right hand. It wasn't an ordinary article of clothing anymore. It was a beautiful, elegant masterpiece.
All this had happened in an instant. His movement was as if it belonged to a maestro conducting an orchestra.
Frankenstein deftly fixed his glasses’ position and started to carefully examine the jacket. His eyes glinted sharper than before he made the jacket, as if he would not tolerate the tiniest of fault in it…
Frankenstein’s eyes flashed menacingly and his eyebrows wriggled.
“Oh my, on the seam…an error of 1mm!!”
There was a slight waver iin Frankenstein’s voice as a drop of sweat slid down his face.
“That I could make this kind of unforgivable mistake…”
He reprimanded himself, a wearing a distressed expression. He closed his eyes, tightly as if the sight of his own failure was unbearable.
“This should be destroyed. It is not fit for Master.”
Frankenstein said this with a small sigh.
There was no way that he would dress his master in flawed clothing.
Frankenstein flicked his finger.
A space on the floor next to the chair that Frankenstein was sitting on opened and he flung the jacket without hesitation. The moment it entered the hole,
Fierce flames shot up and completely destroyed the clothing on the spot. ` Chii iik~
The trapdoor closed as swiftly as it had opened.
Frankenstein glanced at the digital clock on the wall. It read 6:50 am.
“Oh, look at the time.”
He hurriedly rose from his seat and exited the room.
Rai’s Dressing Room.
The marble floor of the exorbitantly spacious dressing room shone with luster, and the lighting on the ceiling was neither too bright or too dark. The elegant decorations that were placed here and there looked like they belonged to conventional architectural works transformed what was supposed to be a simple dressing room.
Two wall closets were situated in the corner, divided in half. On one side, it was jam packed with outerwear on the upper side pants on the lower. On the other, shoes and accessories were arranged.
A classic tea table and chairs were placed in the middle of the room. On one of the chairs sat Rai, who was wearing black pants and a white shirt. He was seated with his legs crossed, calmly gazing at the displayed attire.
With that Frankenstein strode into the room, carrying a tea set on a tray. He walked over, placed the tray on the tea table beside Rai and poured tea into a teacup.
Warm, scented steam wafted up. Frankenstein smiled as he spoke.
“Master. Have you decided what shoes you will wear today?”
Rai propped his chin on one hand and gave a small sigh in place of an answer. However Frankenstein immediately understood.
‘He hasn't decided yet.’
Rai sipped his tea, eyes not breaking away from the clothes in the closet. The clothes he was gazing at, no, to be more precise, all the clothes in the room, were all of the same design. Even the shoes…
White jackets and black pants.
Unbelievably, all that filled this luxurious dressing room were copies of the Ye Ran High School uniform.
Even though the uniforms looked the same on the outside, these were made by Frankenstein himself and had miniscule differences. The material of the clothes, the type of thread, the sewing method, etc…there were numerous variations.
The sides of Frankenstein’s mouth lifted into a smile.
‘Master is always so attentive.’
Ding dong~ ding dong~
The doorbell could be heard from outside.
“Excuse me for a moment, Master.”
Bowing his head, Frankenstein as he left the room. He walked into the living room, headed towards the video phone and looked at the moniter.
-Principal Lee, it’s us!
Ikhan’s beaming face filled most of the screen. On either side of him were Yuna and Suyi. At the back stood a yawning Shinwoo, obviously not fully awake.
The time was 7:30. Knowing the reason why the children were here so early, Frankenstein smiled and said,
“Please wait a moment.”
Ikhan answered. Turning his head to the side, Frankenstein saw that Regis and Seira had entered the living room.
Rai, who had changed into his chosen uniform set opened the door of the dressing room and walked out leisurely. As he did Regis and Seira bowed their heads slightly as a greeting. Even it was slight, almost like a nod, it was very respectful.
Looking particularly expressionless, Rai gave a vague nod in their general direction, acknowleding their greetings. His response should have made it seem as if he were slightly ignoring them; but, strangely in his case this was all very natural.
With his right hand on his chest, Frankenstein bowed slowly.
“I’ll see you soon. Master.”
Not saying anything, Rai gave another slight nod and stepped forward, with Seira and Regis following behind.
The front door opened slowly. The children were waiting right outside. They greeted Rai and the others as they walked out.
Pushing his glasses up with one hand, Ikhan greeted them brightly.
The airborne jacket slowly floated upwards. Frankenstein outstretched his fingers towards it.
Pushing his glasses up with one hand, Ikhan greeted them brightly.
“Yawn~ Hey. Smack smack…”
The still-sleepy Shinwoo scratched his head, also letting out a yawn.
“Hi guys, did you sleep well?”
An embarrassed Yuna, who was combing down her bed-head hair, along with Suyi, who was rubbing hair essence into her friend’s hair also greeted.
Seira was nodding politely in everyone’s direction while Regis was peering around in a stiff, formal manner.
“Heung~ You’ve all come together today.”
“I’ve succeeded in waking Shinwoo up today. We met Yuna and Suyi on the way. We’ll be going altogether for the first time in a while.”
Ikhan laughed as he summarized.
Rai was gazing silently at the children.
Even though they weren’t speaking loudly, they were noisy just by being together. Their expressions, voices, and actions were all very animated.
After watching them for a bit he shifted his pace. The kids followed suit, heading towards the school.
“What should I do, my hair’s a mess because I didn’t dry it properly. last night It doesn’t look like it’ll settle down anytime soon. What about now, Suyi?”
Yuna fingered her hair as she asked.
“It’s a lot better. It’ll be okay in a little while, so don’t worry too much.”
Suyi giggled, comforting her friend. Yuna sighed.
“Ae hyoo~ Just because I dozed off while my hair was still wet…”
Yuna trailed off as she glanced at Seira.
“How does Seira always keep her hair in such perfect condition?”
At Yuna’s words Suyi looked Seira’s way. The two girls stared at her with jealousy.
Seira’s beautiful, silver, waist-length hair swished with every step she took. The glossy sheen of it was further luminated by the occasional touch of sunlight.
Suyi and Yuna couldn’t look away from her.
Not heeding their gazes, Seira walked on with her back straight and her chin up while staring on ahead.
“Yes, how does she keep her hair so shiny? What shampoo do you use?”
“I’m curious, too. I recieve professional care because of shoots and performances and such, but I can’t be like you, Seira, at all!”
Suyi’s statement followed Yuna’s question.
As if she didn’t understand the girls, she peeked at them. To her knowledge, “shampoo” was what humans used to wash their hair.
Pureblood Nobles like Seira could elliminate bodily wastes inside the body using their powers. There was no need to wash their hair seperately either. Of course, from time to time, they do wash their hair to enjoy the feeling…
“I do not bother much. For that matter,I do not like to use chemicals either…”
Suyi and Yuna misinterpreted Seira’s answer, nodding thoughtfully.
“Not taking care of it…and do you mean that you use a shampoo that doesn’t have any chemicals in it?”
“They must use different shampoo at Principal Lee’s house, too. A person that has such naturally wonderful hair to use a good-quality shampoo…”
“Yeah, you’re right. Heeyu~ (sighing sound)”
Seira glanced at them while they lamented.
Ikhan looked suspiciously at Shinwoo, who was letting out a huge yawn.
“Shinwoo. How long did you play games last night?”
“Hm? For about three hours…not including the time gaming with you…jjeob (mouth-smacking sound).”
“You’re not getting enough sleep, gaming all night.”
“Oh, really, that’s what it was! I thought something was wrong…because I was so sleepy. It wasn’t a problem with my body after all.”
Ignoring Shinwoo, Ikhan mumbled to himself. Regis, who was listening to their conversation, shook his head pitifully.
“If humans need a sufficient amount of sleep. If you do not, then the body’s condition will detoriate considerably. To summarize, Han Shinwoo. They will be in your state. It’s very irresponsible, especially because we have school today, which is very important.”
At his haughty chiding, Ikhan and Shinwoo sweat-dropped and laughed awkwardly.
Rai was lacking expression, as usual, and was just walking on without saying anything. They chatted nonstop all along the way to the school. The people around them were also unceasingly talkative.
Those people were staring at the group of children, but they had their eyes on Rai only, looking dumbstruck. The people who regained their senses looked away from him, only to lose them again when Regis and Seira caught their eye.
As they neared the school, the number of stares their way diminished as more and more students surrounded them. It was because the students were used to seeing Rai, Regis and Seira at school. Even so, they were more than happy to steal glances at them occasionally.
At the front gate, their homeroom teacher Pedro was standing with his hands folded behind his back.
The kids greeted brightly, bowing their heads.
“So, you’ve all come.” (duh?)
As a disheveled Shinwoo entered Pedro’s line of sight, the teacher grinned.
“You’ve come on time today, Shinwoo. Keuh~ this teacher is glad. I’m saved from being embarassed in front of the other teachers today. You see, when it’s my turn at the front gate, Han Shinwoo is late 100% of the time.”
Pedro laughed good-naturedly while Shinwoo scratched his head and chuckled uncertainly. Suddenly Pedro stopped and cleared his throat.
“Ehem~ That’s that. You kids hurry on up to the classroom.”
“Because of you guys the front gate’s getting crowded.”
Pedro motioned for the children to look behind them.
The students were stopping and staring at them. More specifically, they were staring at Rai, Regis and Seira. Pedro gestured for them to hurry into the school building.
Ikhan and Shinwoo, then Yuna and Suyi laughed awkwardly and started towards the building. Rai, Seira, and Regis maintained their usual expressions and followed in a serene manner.
As they neared the school, their expressions brightened. They had spotted M-21(squee!), Takeo, and Tao heading somewhere.
Shinwoo and Ikhan yelled in unison and the trio turned their heads.
Yuna and Suyi bowed their heads.
“Hey, you guys.”
“Wow, you’ve all come together today.”
Tao waved happily and Takeo grinned at them. Differing from those two, M-21 was wearing a cold expression, mouth tightly closed in a thin line. The children were used to his reaction, however.
“Where are you going?”
“We’re going to patrol outside of school grounds. Gonna switch out with the guards on duty there now.”
Tao answered Ikhan’s question with a smiling face.
“Did you kids just arrive?”
Tao glanced at Shinwoo.
“Shinwoo’s still sleepy, huh.”
“Haha~ I was busy so I couldn’t sleep much…”
“Shinwoo’s like that everyday.”
M-21 interrupted their conversation. At his voice, Tao quit talking with the kids at looked at the clock (note: Most schools have a clock somewhere on the exterior of the building).
“Oh, sorry. We’d better hurry. We can’t be late for our shift.”
Before they left, the trio glanced at Rai, who was standing off to the side.
Their eyes met Rai’s. They each gave a quick, curt nod to him and urgently escaped.
“See you later, hyungs~”
“Do well in class~ And listen to your teacher.”
The hurridly retreating figures of Tao and Takeo turned and waved, smiling brightly (d’awww~).Then they turned around again and picked up their paces.
“You too, ajusshi!”
Tao and Takeo burst out laughing. The typically cold M-21 sweat-dropped and groaned. That was when…
Pedro was writing something on the chalkboard with ardor and the children were hard at work at writing it down. squeezing his mouse as if he would die if he didn’t, his other hand blazing across the keyboard. Shinwoo, confident that the kids in front of him would block his sleeping form, was snoring so
. Shinwoo, confident that the kids in front of him would block his sleeping form, was snoring soundly with his head on his desk.
Yuna and Suyi were diligently writing in their notebooks. Seira and Regis were taking notes from their textbooks.
At the very back of the classroom, next to the window, Rai was gazing out of the window silently. His line of sight shifted now and then, from the students taking their P.E. class on the field, the buildings and forest surrounding the school, to the clear blue sky and the piercingly bright sun…
Hwii ee ing~
A cool breeze blew through the open window. It ruffled Rai’s hair, making the individual strands dance. And just for a second, he closed his eyes partway.
A quiet sound of suprise left Suyi’s mouth. Without meaning to, she blushed.
She had happened to see Rai just as the wind blew through his hair when she turned her head to the side. Nobody else could look as magnificent as he was. Right now, Rai’s could make anybody’s heart beat faster.
Not looking away from Rai, Suyi leaned foward and whispered in to Yuna’s ear, wo was sitting in front of her.
Yuna looked up from her notes. “I mean, Rai…doesn’t he look really cool?”
Yuna was suprised at Suyi’s unexpected question. She subconciously glanced over her shoulder at Rai.
“It’s just Rai…”
Yuna looked at him, and her face turned red. Even though they always hung out together, they still weren’t used to his looks. If they weren’t concious enough, he could easily make their hearts flutter.
Suyi supported her chin with one arm.
“Seira and Regis are like that, too…Where in the world do kids like them come from? You’ve seen all those people staring at Rai and Seira and Regis, right?”
Yuna thought about the countless people that stared at those three and nodded.
“Yeah. But…don’t you have it tough, too?”
Suyi cocked her head.
“You’re such a popular celebrity…”
Yuna trailed off uncertainly. Suyi understood and giggled.
Yuna was trying to ask if a famous person like Suyi was fine with being ignored and losing all the attention to their three friends.
“It’s pleasant for me, actually. It’s tiring, being stared at all the time…I would be fine even if it weren’t like that. Those kids aren’t ordinary kids, after all…”
Yuna laughed softly at Suyi’s playful tone.
“Who was that?!”
Pedro must have heard, because he stopped writing on the chalkboard and whirled around. The two girls stiffened.
A large racket was made as a chair flew backwards. Shinwoo bolted up.
“Yessir. Han Shinwoo at your service!”
Everyone was stunned into silence. Shinwoo was absolutely remarkable. Sleeping through the whole class and making a huge scene waking up…
Pedro was startled and placed a hand over his chest like a person who had a heart attack.
Shinwoo stared at the teacher with wide, innocent eyes, as if he had not just snoozed through the whole class up until now. It would have been convincing but for the redshot sclera, the deep imprint on his cheek and the drool around his mouth. No human could be in that state just by drowsing for a minute or two.
Ikhan sighed and shook his head.
Regis snorted pityingly.
“What should we do? Because of us Shinwoo…”
They whispered covering their mouths with their hands. Both girls were at a loss.
Seira was expressionlessly watching the scene. And…
From the start, when the chair noisily clattered backwards, Rai had not looked up from the window once, as if disinterested.
After studying Shinwoo for a while, Pedro finally spoke.
“Get over here.”
End of Noblesse S Episode 1.
