Consumed by anger and vengeance for the Northern Sect’s betrayal and Seoah Hwa’s death, Mu-Won vowed to make Jo Un-Kyung pay. Un-Kyung, dismissing Mu-Won’s words as mere empty threats, questioned their involvement with the remote tribe.

Their swords clashed in a fierce battle, both warriors pushing their limits. With a powerful stroke, Mu-Won severed Un-Kyung’s arm, followed by a strike that should have ended his life.

However, a chilling twist unfolded. Un-Kyung, fueled by the chaotic power of demonic purgatory, transformed into a hulking, monstrous being. His limbs mutated into grotesque worm-like appendages, showcasing the extent of his demonic control. He revealed that he had been saving this power for a crucial moment, and now it was unleashed upon Mu-Won.

The battle escalated as Un-Kyung unleashed a torrent of demonic attacks, leaving Mu-Won staggering and weakened. Un-Kyung taunted him, claiming that Mu-Won’s brother had committed even greater atrocities against the Northern Sect, slaughtering innocent women and children. His words were laced with a sickening sweetness, and the blood from their combat splattered across the battlefield.

As the chapter concludes, Un-Kyung encases Mu-Won in a blood-forged sphere, constricting him like a serpent’s coils. This act symbolizes not just physical confinement but also the weight of the Northern Sect’s past sins that Mu-Won carries.

Un-Kyung’s parting words, a chilling “sorry,” leave a sense of unease and uncertainty hanging in the air, raising questions about the depths of his corruption and the fate of Mu-Won.

Will Mu-Won be able to resist the blood bond sphere’s control? How will Mu-Won react to the revelation about his brother’s actions? What are the true consequences of unleashing demonic powers?

The battle between Mu-Won and Un-Kyung was brutal and intense, showcasing the devastating power of both warriors. The twist of Un-Kyung’s demonic transformation added a chilling layer to the fight, leaving Mu-Won cornered and desperate.

Un-Kyung’s taunts about Mu-Won’s brother add another layer of complexity to the story. It raises questions about the true nature of the Northern Sect and the motivations behind their actions. The final scene with Mu-Won trapped in the blood-forged sphere leaves readers eager to discover his fate and the consequences of his brother’s actions.
