Kill the Hero - Chapter 275
Kill The Hero – Chapter 275 – Epilogue (END)
December 23, 2025 .
It was the day before Christmas Eve, and the atmosphere in Seoul, the capital of Korea, was tenser than ever .
“It’s a week from now?”
“Right, a week from now, Isaac Ivanov will attack the 9 Floor dungeon . ”
The dungeon attack that was announced on October 4 to commemorate the great hero who fought to save the world was only a week away .
However, it wasn’t just tension .
“Will you succeed?”
There was a reason for the tension .
Expectations were high that there would be a peaceful world where they would no longer need to worry about monsters appearing every year .
The expectation that this game would finally end .
“Because an All Star Team has been created . ”
The source of this expectation were the players who had been gathered to attack the 9 Floor dungeon .
An All Star Team!
All of the best players in the world had been gathered for this final dungeon attack .
“Because the All Star Team will be led by Isaac Ivanov . ”
And those who gathered were all under the banner of Isaac Ivanov .
“Would they really be completely obedient just because of your little story?”
“Of course they will obey . Those who go against the Messiah Guild’s values here are basically going against all of humanity . ”
“Well, if the other guilds had cooperated fully with the Messiah Guild then maybe Lee Se-jun wouldn’t have died . ”
It was the death of the world’s saviour, Lee Se-jun, made it possible .
His noble sacrifice made it impossible for the other players to be selfish .
“Now it’s time to finally end this game . ”
That was why tension and expectation coexisted in the atmosphere around the world on the day before Christmas Eve .
“Hey, really . A Chinese restaurant of all things, a Chinese restaurant?”
And despite this atmosphere in Seoul, a man complained without hesitation .
“Since we’re preparing to do something so big we should at least have giant lobster and king crab with caviar . Huh?”
It was a man whose appearance was so ugly that just looking at him would give you goosebumps .
Whenever this man complained, the people around couldn’t help but be surprised by his ugly appearance .
However, the ordinary looking man across from him didn’t respond at all to the ugly man’s complaints .
“Make an order . ”
Along with those words, he handed a menu over to the ugly man .
Lee Jin-ah, the man who received the menu, asked with delight .
“You’re shooting right?”
Kim Woo-jin simply closed his eyes instead of answering .
Lee Jin-ah laughed at this sight .
‘Punk, you brought me to a cheap chinese restaurant, but I’ll just eat 100 million won’s worth . That should be enough . ’
“Then I’ll place my order . ”
“Yes . ”
Hiding the ridicule in his heart, Lee Jin-ah pointed out what he wanted to the employee who came to take his order .
“I’ll have from here to here . ”
When the waiter tilted their head at his order, Lee Jin-ah pointed to the first dish on the first page of the menu .
“From here . ”
Then turning the menu to the last page, he pointed at the last dish .
“To here . ”
Only then did the waiter understand what he meant, but they looked even more surprised .
Lee Jin-ah ignored the waiter and handed the menu back to Kim Woo-jin .
“You should also make your order . ”
This fact made the waiter even more embarrassed .
‘He wants to eat all of that alone?’
Ignoring the waiter’s shocked expression, Kim Woo-jin simply ordered a bowl of jajangmyeon .
After taking their orders, the employee hurried to relay it to the kitchen, and Lee Jin-ah began humming a small tune while waiting for his food .
Kim Woo-jin simply sat there without a word .
After a while, the food was brought out .
A bowl of jajangmyeon for Kim Woo-jin, and a plate of tangsuyuk for Lee Jin-ah .
“Oh, you already ordered?”
A man walked into the restaurant and greeted Kim Woo-jin and Lee Jin-ah as soon as he saw them .
“It looks delicious . Who’s shooting? Huh?”
This was Kim Woo-jin’s first time meeting this man .
But that didn’t mean he didn’t know who he was .
“Oh Se-chan . ”
It was the moment when Kim Woo-jin and Oh Se-chan were finally able to meet for the first time .
Oh Se-chan looked towards Kim Woo-jin and smiled .
“This is our first meeting, isn’t it?”
Kim Woo-jin nodded and said .
“As I heard, you’re bald . ”
“As you heard, I’m bald?”
Oh Se-chan slowly turned his head to Lee Jin-ah who simply shrugged his shoulders at his expression .
“What? You’re bald, aren’t you?”
Oh Se-chan shut his mouth as though the confident words made him speechless .
Then he simply sat on the chair beside Lee Jin-ah facing Kim Woo-jin, and said .
“There’s only one left . ”
At those words, the messy atmosphere calmed down a bit .
“It was a long fight . ”
As he said those words, Oh Se-chan’s expression was heavy .
“That’s why finishing it is all the more important . ”
“Here’s your yangjangpi* . ” (TL: basically mixed vegetables and seafood in mustard sauce . )
One more dish was brought in this heavy atmosphere and Oh Se-chan immediately shut up .
It was only after the waiter disappeared that Oh Se-chan opened his mouth again .
“Have you ever thought about what will happen after the game ends?”
He once again created a heavy atmosphere with his questions .
“Here’s your palbochae* . ” (TL: eight treasures dish . )
At that moment the waiter once again left the kitchen and put a plate on the table in front of Lee Jin-ah .
Once again, Oh Se-chan shut up .
And when the employee disappeared into the kitchen, he opened his mouth again .
“Players will lose their abilities, guilds will lose their function…”
“Here is the chilli shrimp you ordered . ”
Only then did Oh Se-chan break the heavy atmosphere and shout towards Lee Jin-ah .
“You damn pig, little pig bastard!”
Lee Jin-ah furrowed his brows when he heard that .
“Hey, why are you suddenly insulting me? It’s not like you’re the one paying is it?”
Oh Se-chan scratched his head nervously and closed his mouth at those words because Lee Jin-ah had accurately targeted his weakness .
It was Kim Woo-jin who set the mood once again .
“There would be chaos . Everything that was created during this period would become a bubble overnight . ”
Oh Se-chan nodded .
“Right, but if the players’ abilities remain after the game ends that will be a problem, but it would be even more troublesome if they lose their abilities . They have built a lot over the past six years, all the power structures around the world have been organised and reorganised by the players and guilds . ”
The world wanted the game to end .
That much was true .
However, most people didn’t think about what would happen after the game ended .
And no one prepared for it .
Even the Messiah Guild had not made any preparations in event that the game ended .
“What you need the most in a time of chaos like that is power . ”
Only one person was different .
“Like an exemplary social enterprise where you could give food and medicine instead of guns and ammunition to the people who are sick and have no food to eat . ”
Oh Se-chan had been preparing for when the game ended .
“I created a company called Pandora . It’s a company I made using all the money I’d saved . ”
That was what Oh Se-chan had prepared .
“We’ve already acquired all the necessary technologies, factories and technicians we need for what I just mentioned . The technologies that would be used in the world that changed because the game ended . We have them for all kinds of fields . And it’s completely legitimate . Unlike the players and guilds, the money used there is completely clean . From now on, Pandora will save the world . ”
As he said this, Oh Se-chan smiled bitterly .
“Sure it won’t be easy, but it’s definitely better than waiting for nuclear weapons to be launched or hungry people picking up weapons and rebelling . ”
“Ah, Pandora was like that?”
Lee Jin-ah, who’d finished his plate of chili shrimp, responded to Oh Se-chan’s remarks .
Oh Se-chan glared at him for a bit before continuing .
“So what do you think?”
“I thought you were just raising money for yourself, I didn’t think you were working globally to raise money for world peace . ”
Oh Se-chan’s expression crumpled .
“Hey, what do you take me for?”
Lee Jin-ah answered this question without hesitation .
“Aren’t you just a bald, cheap money grubber?”
Kim Woo-jin couldn’t help but laugh at the conversation between the two .
“Ugh, I wasn’t asking you anyway!”
Oh Se-chan clicked his tongue at Lee Jin-ah before turning back to Kim Woo-jin .
“Anyways, that’s the end of the public story . I’m all set . So you can go ahead and do whatever you want . ”
Don’t worry about what would happen after clearing the final dungeon .
Kim Woo-jin smiled and nodded at the indescribable help .
“Now then, shall we talk about something personal?”
Seeing that smile, Oh Se-chan continued .
“I’ve thought a lot about the game . I’m certain that this was done by some transcendent being that we can’t even begin to fathom . ”
Kim Woo-jin nodded .
“And that transcendent being must have a bloody twisted personality . ”
“Like you hyung?”
Oh Se-chan ignored Lee Jin-ah’s words, although the veins on his bald head pulsed dangerously .
“Would such a being tolerate it if the game they made became stagnant without being ended by the players? Think about it . If you made a game, but you weren’t able to see the ending of the game because the characters inside didn’t want the game to end . What would you do?”
Kim Woo-jin didn’t answer that question .
Oh Se-chan looked at Kim Woo-jin carefully for a moment before continuing in a soft tone .
“If it was me . I’d fix the error and play the game again . Isn’t that right? Huh? Do you have similar thoughts as me?”
Instead of answering, Kim Woo-jin narrowed his eyes slightly .
A light smile spread across his lips .
Then Oh Se-chan’s smartphone began vibrating .
“Excuse me . ”
After giving him a glance, Oh Se-chan got up from his seat .
“Hyung doesn’t get a lot of time to rest . Rather, I’m not even sure if he pays his phone bill as he should . If the call fee exceeds 100 won, he’ll probably hack the carrier’s server so that he doesn’t have to pay the fee . ”
With those words, Lee Jin-ah turned to the waiter who was bringing a new dish .
“Let me change my order . ”
When they heard that, the waiter nodded .
After all, how could one person eat all of that food? That’s what their expression said .
Naturally, while they thought he wanted to cancel the order, Lee Jin-ah continued .
“Then what should I cance…”
“I’d like to order some deserts in advance . ”
To the surprised employee, Lee Jin-ah held up the menu and said .
“From here to here . ”
While the waiter was still in shock, Oh Se-chan reappeared and beckoned to Kim Woo-jin .
“Can I talk to you for a minute?”
Kim Woo-jin got up from his seat without saying anything and followed Oh Se-chan out the restaurant .
Looking at their retreating figures, Lee Jin-ah had just one thought .
‘I have to eat everything before they come back . ’
He had to eat even more before they returned!
As he was filled with determination and smiled insidiously, something caught Lee Jin-ah’s eye .
It was a bill sitting on Kim Woo-jin’s seat .
‘No way . ’
After confirming what it was, Lee Jin-ah turned to look at the door of the restaurant .
However, he could see neither hide nor hair of Oh Se-chan or Kim Woo-jin .
With a ridiculous expression on his face, Lee Jin-ah said .
“Wow, they’re really spiteful, terrible . ”
