– Volume 4 Episode 13
Before moving in earnest, we decided to first map the area near the entrance.
When Ki Cheol-min flew a round sphere-shaped drone into the air, it flew to somewhere with twinkling lights.
Soon, a hologram appeared on the tab, and a map was constructed based on the information the drone was sending.
However, the drone could not go far due to thick fog and unidentified radio disturbances that often occur in dungeons.
After observing only about a 3km radius, the drone returned immediately.
He collected it and started recording with a miniature camera mounted on the helmet Choi wore over his head.
So Gang-doo was at the forefront, followed by Jeong Dae-sik and Ki Cheol-min.
Mi-rae Heo and Choi Se-un stood in the center, and Si-on Kim took on the role of Fumi.
Although the formation was woven, it was difficult to maintain due to the narrow road.
It was quite difficult to walk because there was mud and puddles everywhere.
“Don’t worry about your feet and walk while looking forward and backward. Daesik Jeong, can you detect a monster?”
“Yes, you don’t have to worry about that part.”
“As you know, today’s purpose is not hunting. It’s just a preliminary survey, so avoid monsters if possible.”
Under Kim Si-on’s direction, the team of expeditions proceeded with caution.
It stopped at every 3km point and sent a drone to do the mapping little by little.
The dungeon was wider than I thought, so it seemed unreasonable to look at all the areas.
After mapping four times, they took a break.
Kim Si-on muttered while chewing the emergency food like a cigarette.
“It’s kind of a bad place. Jeong Dae-sik, haven’t the monsters been observed yet?”
“Yes. I don’t feel any monsters.”
It was strange.
I’ve already moved 12km and nothing shows up.
It wasn’t like a normal dungeon.
“It would have been nice if we could have found a hunter who said they had attacked this dungeon.”
At what Ki Cheol-min said, Jeong Dae-sik asked a question.
“You don’t know who that hunter is, do you?”
“Sometimes there are hunters who hide their identities and work secretly. The fact that this dungeon was attacked was also known when the Magic Crystals were discovered.”
“Why are you working in secret?”
It was then that we were continuing a meaningless conversation.
A scream could be heard from afar.
Everyone was startled and jumped up from their seats.
Kim Si-on frowned and muttered.
“What is this sound?”
“It sounded like a scream.”
She nodded at what Mirae Heo said with a frightened expression on her face.
“Seeing all that happened, I don’t think I heard it wrong.”
“Who else is in here?”
“There is a possibility.”
Kim Si-on stood in place and concentrated his mind.
Her expanded consciousness spread all over the place.
Kim Si-on, who stood for a moment with her eyelids trembling, immediately opened her eyes and said:
“It’s 4 o’clock, Hunter. I’m alone.”
Then another scream was heard.
It was much clearer than before.
A loud bang is heard soon after.
I couldn’t delay any longer.
It seemed that someone was in danger.
Kim Si-on immediately gave the instructions.
“Move while maintaining the formation at 4 o’clock! Stop in place as soon as you spot something!”
They ran at high speed and headed in the direction the noise was coming from.
So Gang-doo, who was running at the forefront, gave a stop signal and stopped in place, and Jeong Dae-sik soon found someone.
The fog had faded, revealing a vast puddle like a pond.
There, a certain hunter was talking loudly.
“Wow! It almost would have been a big deal!”
Jeong Dae-sik reflexively clenched his fists, but Kim Si-on, who activated the command mode, gave no command.
On the contrary, she was bewildered.
It was the same with Jeong Dae-sik.
There was nothing around the man wandering around alone.
That means the monsters are not visible.
But the man kept talking to himself.
“I was so nervous that I made a mistake. It’s only natural to wander alone in the fog and see nothing? By the way, this dungeon is quite quiet. No monsters appear… It’s eerie.”
The way he changed his gestures and facial expressions in various ways seemed to be a one-man play.
Or you’re crazy.
Anyway, it was not a sight you would see in a dungeon.
Being frozen in the face of a strange scene, Ki Chul-min came up with the most appropriate guess for the situation.
“…Is it even an internet broadcast?”
“I think so.”
At what Mi-rae Heo said, Si-on Kim turned off the command mode.
Then he got up and went through the bushes and said,
The man looked back in surprise.
He was a little short in height, but looking at his face, he was as handsome as Yoo Tae-hoon.
Besides, there was a sense of incongruity that I didn’t know… it looked like she was wearing makeup.
It looked like a person who was not entering the dungeon, so he looked stylish.
Then Ki Chul-min motioned for a drone floating around the man.
It was much smaller than the mapping drone that Chul-min Ki brought.
It was probably for a photo shoot.
There, the man was wearing a cell phone pad on the back of his hand.
Perhaps the video filmed by the drone is being saved through the mobile phone or transmitted somewhere.
As Ki Chul-min speculated, the man seemed to be doing something similar to broadcasting.
However, there was no internet connection here.
Communication with the outside was impossible.
But the man trembled as if it was real time.
It was probably filmed in real time and uploaded later.
When Kim Si-on suddenly appeared, the man pointed a finger at her and shouted.
“No, you? A manic beauty who suddenly appeared in a dungeon like this! Everyone, can you see it? Isn’t it my mistake? It’s probably not a monster, is it?”
Kim Si-on struck the hand of the man who pointed at him with a displeased face.
“What the hell are you doing here alone? You ran all the way here because of you! Wasn’t it attacked by a monster?”
At Kim Si-on’s words, the man trembled.
“Haha, I’m sorry about that. It wasn’t intentional. I couldn’t see well because of the fog, so I mistook the rock for a monster.”
“Stupid. Don’t you think it’s enough to mistake a rock for a monster and shoot it? It’s not a place for a guy like you to wander around! It’s still not clear what this dungeon is like. It could be dangerous, so just go back. ……”
“Uh, be careful with what you say. There are a lot of people watching right now.”
“What? Could it be?”
“Really. Don’t you know me?”
Kim Si-on made an expression on how would he know that I was yours.
Then the man showed a sign of great disappointment.
“You really don’t know? It’s called Gaekkishin…”
The man identified himself as the god of gaekgi, an Internet broadcast host, and his real name was Na Dong-il.
He was working on producing content related to Hunter, and he said that he was a famous BJ that surpassed 10 million views on YouTube.
“It’s been said that I’ve been on the 3rd in the Hunter Popularity Ranking since then. You still don’t know me……”
“What you don’t know is what you don’t know, and what’s dangerous is dangerous.”
Even after realizing the identity of Na Dong-il, Kim Si-on did not stop treating him as an idiot.
Internet broadcasting in a dungeon where people live and die.
I couldn’t help but be treated like an idiot.
It was not unreasonable that his nickname was the god of courage.
Despite Kim Si-on’s attitude, Na Dong-il smiled brightly.
“Don’t worry. Even though it looks like this, it has survived until now while navigating through numerous dungeons across the country. Ah… But now that I see it, are you in the Titan raid?”
Kim Si-on was a little perplexed when he quickly found out about his identity.
Her titan markings were concealed on her armor, and there was no apparent evidence of a titan raid.
Surprisingly, however, Na Dong-il even matched Kim Si-on’s name in a snap.
“Mr. Kim Si-on, the commander of the Foreign Legion, right?”
Kim Si-on said, showing caution.
“How did you know that?”
“That’s it, because people have told me.”
“People who are watching my broadcast. One of them said in a comment that it was Kim Si-on.”
“What nonsense… is this being broadcast in real time?”
“I told you? A lot of people are watching.”
Kim Si-on was confused.
Seeing her disbelieving expression, Na Dong-il added an explanation.
“For reference, my ability is wave. I call myself a waver.”
Dongil Na was a person who freely handled radio waves.
He was a person with the ability to send or receive information he wanted, wherever he was.
So, he made full use of his abilities and became a Hunter BJ.
He gained immense popularity by broadcasting his hunting scenes in the dungeon.
Watching his broadcasts, ordinary people could sit comfortably in their homes and experience other worlds and monsters in the dungeon indirectly.
“I think I’ve heard of it. There are people who broadcast hunting on the Internet…”
At what Mi-rae Heo said, Dong-il Na opened her mouth wide and smiled.
“That’s right. That’s it.”
Since the man’s identity was revealed, all of his troops had stood in front of him.
As they appeared, Na Dong-il stopped broadcasting for a while.
Ki Cheol-min looked at Na Dong-il and clicked his tongue.
“If it’s that kind of ability, it will be valuable in any raid, so why is it Internet broadcasting?”
“Well, I got a lot of scout offers here and there, but when I was in a raid, I could only play a secondary role. I wanted to do something more interesting. So this is what I came up with.”
“Isn’t it dangerous? I don’t know how many grades I have, but if I’m wandering around alone like this in a country where I have to put all my energy into hunting…”
“Haha, so he’s a rookie of courage. Well, he doesn’t always go alone. Sometimes, we get cooperation from other raids and we broadcast together.”
