– Volume 5 Episode 8
‘I don’t think we’re gathering Seven Stars to do that. What, does it have anything to do with me?’
Like Choi Hee, I just want to collect, so I thought it might be possible to collect it, and Jeong Dae-sik asked me to tell you the weather.
He thought that it would be good if it was sunny as he would be put into a new mission right from tomorrow.
But then, someone cautiously spoke from behind.
Jeong Dae-sik turned his head in amazement.
Then, as if knowing, not knowing, and familiar, stood there.
He was a seemingly ordinary boy, so he was bewildered as to what he was doing.
Faced with Jeong Dae-sik, the boy suddenly smiled brightly.
“Yeah! Daesik Jeong… Is that Daesik Jeong?”
Jeong Dae-sik was somewhat perplexed because he wanted these ordinary people to recognize him.
He could neither affirm nor deny, but the other person pointed a finger at him and said.
“I, don’t you remember?”
“Me! We’ve met on the subway before!”
Jeong Dae-sik realized his identity one beat later.
This boy was a self-identified hunter maniac.
I used to go to the Zodiac Raid as a temporary worker and saw him wearing the t-shirt they were given and talked to him.
The boy said with a very happy expression on his face.
“You don’t know how surprised I was when I saw Jung Dae-sik on TV that he was a member of the Titan raid.
“Yeah? You know Yongke too.”
“I can’t forget it! From the first time we met, I felt that hyung wasn’t an ordinary person? I definitely thought he would be a great hunter!”
The boy, blushing with excitement, chatted for a while, then asked for an autograph and a picture.
Jeong Dae-sik was somewhat embarrassed to do that in front of other people, but he couldn’t refuse because he seemed to have high expectations.
The problem is, that once I served this boy, the people around him who recognized him as well asked for it.
Seeing people flock to him, he even came rushing to the next room.
Jeong Dae-sik got off at the station where he had to get off because he was surrounded by the crowd and was embarrassed.
From here, he hurried to change to a bus or to take a taxi, but a boy chased him from behind.
“Why are you chasing me?”
“Huh, huh… I’m sorry. I was making a fuss so you got off? You have to go a few more stops to get to the Titan Raid.”
“Even so, I won’t blame you, so there’s no need to apologize. You too, stop and go your own way.”
“Why? Do you have something to say?”
The boy suddenly raised his head and clenched his fists.
Jeong Dae-sik burst out laughing.
The boy said with a red face.
“Because I’m the hyung’s number 1 fan. As the number one fan, I will always support you!”
middle school now? Was it like high school?
It gave me a subtle feeling to see the child say so sincerely.
I can’t really explain it, but it wasn’t a bad feeling.
Jeong Dae-sik patted the boy’s head with a smile on his face.
“Gwaga, if you’re okay with the Sat, Tok ID…”
“Are you talking about your contact information?”
“I will never bother you! I won’t even tell anyone. I’ll keep it my own secret. I just want to show that there are many people who support hyung besides me. It’s true.”
It would have never happened if it had been normal, but on a whim, Jeong Dae-sik exchanged contact information with the boy.
The boy’s name was Yoon Hyun-min, and he was just a junior in middle school.
“I have nothing to be thankful for. I’m not sure I’ll be able to communicate well.”
“Don’t worry about my contact! Rather… please pay attention to the ranking!”
Jeong Dae-sik opened his eyes slightly at the sudden words.
Yoon Hyun-min hesitated a bit at the remarks Jung Dae-sik asked.
“That’s… hyung is a triple-list with the ability to defeat mega-bells, right? I’ve heard that he might become an all-in-one because of that. But his ranking is low compared to that… They say things like they don’t.”
“Yeah? What’s my ranking now?”
For some reason, Yoon Hyun-min did not readily speak.
When Jeong Dae-sik urged him, he said it reluctantly.
“Because it’s still outside the top 100…”
Jeong Dae-sik was surprised without even knowing it.
Although I did not pay attention to the rankings, I did not know that I was low enough to not be able to enter the rankings.
Yoon Hyun-min protested hard on his behalf.
“Ranking is based on cumulative rankings anyway, so those who have been hunting for a long time have an advantage. On the other hand, hyung has only recently become a hunter. He will be able to get into the top 100 soon.”
“Um, yes. Anyway, I get it. Thanks.”
Jeong Dae-sik and Yoon Hyun-min broke up and walked around and called entropy.
‘Hey, entropy. Why is my ranking so low?’
He said that entropy, which had suddenly disappeared, reappeared.
‘Is it because of the illegal settlement through disguise water?’
Come to think of it, it wasn’t long before Jung Dae-sik started earning billions of dollars.
And most of that amount came from disguise.
This means that it was calculated through an official disposal site and was not counted as an official collection.
Moreover, in the top 100 of the ranking, there were a lot of hunters who were active since the first monster break occurred.
They are currently in charge of most of the major raids, and it is not easy to outrun the achievements they have accumulated over the past 10 years in an instant.
‘So, what exactly is my ranking now?’
Jeong Dae-sik coughed after hearing Sare.
Still, I thought it was going to be in the top 2 or 300.
It was a long way from the top 100.
Hearing what Daesik Jeong said, Entropy calmly answered.
‘Why? How did you get there?’
‘The price of Purple Stone was only a few billions. Don’t you think the ranking is based on settlement?’
So far, the money is the best, so I didn’t even care about the rankings, but when I actually checked my level with numbers, I was shocked.
In my opinion, the top 600 is great enough, but considering the fact that he is the only triple-list in Korea and the fact that he is predicted to be an all-in-one in the future, he is far behind.
‘Um, this is secretly hurting my self-esteem.’
Jung Dae-sik murmured inwardly that he should not have checked the rankings, and moved on.
Chapter 27. Promotion
Jeong Dae-sik, who had a one-night break, went to another dungeon before sunrise the next day and joined his colleagues.
Early in the morning when the fog was still not clearing, Jeong Dae-sik, who had appeared by driving a private car, was greeted by foreign troops who had already come.
“Are you here?”
Kim Si-on, who looks up with a blunt head.
“Howdy!” Sogangdu raised his hand and looked up.
Taehoon Yoo with a bright smile.
Park Mu-won makes a simple wink with an expressionless face.
Even to Mi-rae Heo, who nodded with a shy face.
Maybe it was because they had been alone in a dungeon full of undead for a full month or so, and their faces seemed more welcoming than usual.
As Jeong Dae-sik approached them, Kim Si-on said a word.
“Is there any reward in training in the dungeon?”
Jeong Dae-sik smiled brightly at Kim Si-on’s question.
Then So Kang-du put his arm on his shoulder and said.
“If you’re going to training, go with us. Are you shamelessly going alone!”
“I’m sorry. I’ll think about it next time.”
“Well, we’ll see how strong it gets.”
While So Gang-doo was terrified, Kim Si-on briefly explained the mission.
This time, their job was to attack the dungeon commissioned by the government.
There are many dungeons to attack here and there, so when the time limit is imminent, the Ministry of Public Safety and Security sent an official letter to all raids under the government.
After conquering these dungeons, he was able to receive a subsidy from the government, and he was exempted from taxes only for this mission.
Each raid was able to work here freely, but in the case of an urgent attack due to repeated failures, or in the case of a dungeon with no support, the government had a special request.
In this case, he negotiated the request fee directly with the raid.
“The CC9 dungeon we’ll be entering today is a place full of trolls. As you know, trolls are very regenerating, intelligent, so they can use weapons, and some of them use magic, so it’s very difficult to hunt. Especially, we The troll sorceress, the boss mob you need to catch, specializes in debuffs, so it’s very difficult to deal with. For that reason, for this mission, we decided to hire some personnel from other units as well as our Foreign Legion.”
Having said that, Kim Si-on checked the time.
“Now is the time to come.”
A tiger would appear when I said it, and just as she was muttering like that, the sound of a car engine was heard from over there.
Soon a jeep pulled into the parking lot, and the two men got off and rushed to the parking lot.
They were familiar faces.
It was the best with Ki Cheol-min.
“I’m sorry I’m late. There was a lot of fog on the way…”
Seeing the two apologizing, Kim Si-on said coldly.
“The one-eyed corps isn’t an eyeball, it’s a crazy brain? How did this happen?”
Kim Si-on widened his eyes and got angry, and the two of them silently broke up.
Kim Si-on, who was enough to rebuke them, soon followed.
“As you know, Chul-min Ki is hard-working, and the best is a buffer. It will make up for the shortcomings of our unit, so during this mission, think as a team and move.”
Kim Si-on made a mark so that command mode was possible with both of them.
Then, after checking the equipment, I entered the dungeon with the support team.
After a while, they stood inside the dungeon.
