Has no one realized the dad's words? He told the S-rank to never set foot in Korea again or even after he died he wouldn't be able to close his eyes... Sounds like being turned into a zombie doesn't it? Our MC turns characters into Shadow puppets which is akin to turning someone into a zombie. That means the warning was about his son, but the father shouldn't know about his son yet. The only thing he knows is of the upcoming danger that will need to be taking care of by the Uber Elite like himself. So does that mean our MC's power is the problem he is seeking to solve? After all he knows about the problem itself but is unable to tell people about, however he might only know about the problem is a broad aspect and not any fine details like his son being the hell bringer of this catastrophe

Hmm would have preferred the dad to kill the s-rank, during the interrogation, even though the dad doesn't know srank guy, he was talking about his children with bloodlust. What if letting him live gives him an opportunity to kidnap the daughter or something? Dang, i can already imagine that's going to be a future arc

@DonutsOnly Wasn't there a saying that went something along the lines of "The weakest dogs bark the loudest"? Seems like a textbook example of that, am I right?

@Trevelyan I was aware of your spoilers already, but what I mainly meant was that after sending the Korean S-Rank in, they have a recording of their conversation, they should have US translators double check that the Korean S-rank was telling the truth. If they listened to the recording, they would realize that he threatened their prisoner's son and what caused him to go berserk, they should be trying to punish the Korean S-rank for provoking the prisoner and therefore causing so much damage. But instead, they just ask him in the hospital whether or not he is telling the truth. At the very least they should work with the mindset "trust but verify."

@Trevelyan thanks for the explanation. All my knowledge was from the manwha and obviously lots of the detail are mixed up in my end ?

@Trevelyan HA is basically the "Goblin Slayer" of the series lol. Doing what needs to be done, even if there is no fame or fortune in it, because those gates would still hurt people.

They didn't use S-rank because they had no translator. They needed someone strong enough to hold Il-hwan back, if he was a monster and showed his true color in the middle of interrogation. Sending a recording wouldn't work since they still need someone in the room with Il-hwan to ask question in Korean language - sending in anyone less than S-rank would just make them into dead bodies or potential hostages. As you can see, they did actually send someone fluent in Korean in for interrogation at first which is why they knew that Il-hwan was trapped in a SK dungeon 10 years ago, but cut the interrogation short as a precaution.

Minor spoilers involved in explaining:

@bk3k Yes, they need to hide what happened, but then why would you trust a foreign national with no loyalty (it was specified that he only went to the US guild because it was bigger and could pay him more) with something of such importance. Even if they had to use the Korean hunter because he was S-rank, if they had a recording, they could play it for a CIA translator or something to double-check he is telling the truth. This makes all intelligence services look overly unprepared and dumb.

You forgot the guild master from last chapter is also a S rank. Together with the chairman thats 2 S rank in the Hunter guild.


Hunter Association and Hunters' Guild are 2 different organizations.

There are 2 types of Hunters' group:

1. Guild: An organization formed by hunters whose main objectives is to kill monsters and prevent dungeon break.

2. Hunter Association (HA): An organization formed by hunters to regulate hunters.

The reason why HA goes after low-rank dungeon only is because that is not their main objective, and they only clear the dungeons that no guild wants to take (in this case, low rank dungeons since they only have low-quality items inside and is not a good source for income for guilds).

Read-on only if you don't mind minor spoilers.

Yes, they did. It wasn't shown, but it was implied that they sent someone in to interrogate Il-hwan, which gave them a general idea of the situation. That's how they knew that Il-hwan claimed himself to be trapped inside a dungeon in South Korea and found himself in US when he was awake. However, they decided to cut the interrogation short and looked for a S-rank Hunter who is fluent in Korean due to the danger of Il-hwan being a monster with human memories. So the main issue is not because they do not have anyone fluent in Korean.

I think the only reason they went ahead with the initial interrogation is because Il-hwan had been cooperative so far.

@Trevelyan that makes sense, but didn't they originally have a weakling talk to him before loser s-rank showed up??

on page 5 when he talk about the top five countries guilds, he uses the expression "dinosaur" to express strength/power but that word, at least in the US, means archaic/old.

@unime I think they needed a translator who is strong enough to hold Il-hwan (if that's his name) back. A weak (or anyone below S-rank) would just become hostage or pointless victim if they went in. Of course, this is before they realise how much stronger Il-hwan is.

@GerryCerryBery

mahtan answered part of it already. As for who was the strongest in that double dungeon, it was the C-rank magician who is good at using sword. Jinwoo was the weakest among the group that day. Even after re-awakening it takes time for him to surpass that C-rank guy.
