Bi-Kwang is a handsome young warrior who becomes a drooling mess whenever he sees a pretty girl. Out on the road he meets an extraordinary swordfighter with no name who is searching for a legendary master warrior. Bi-Kwang promises to aid the swordfighter if he lets Bi-Kwang meet his beautiful sister. Of course, it turns out the swordfighter is the sister, Hwa-Rin Dahm, and she must switch identities to keep the plot moving along. Bi-Kwang is immediately smitten, and thus we have a triangle involving only two people.

The story takes place in a setting in each side is trying to unify the Murim as a whole, and while this is taking place, Bi-Kwang who is extremely good at learning martial arts but doesn't want to learn it, gets into a deal where he takes the girl to see her grand father since he was the last person to see him before he disappeared and on the way he encounters many enemies and some friends (who show up from time to time) and he matures since he realizes why martial arts is so important and that he has been using it wrongly.


Ruler of the Land had three volumes published in English as The Ruler of the Land by ADV Manga from April 20, 2004 to July 27, 2004 before the license was dropped and the publisher went defunct.

Let me preface this with the fact that I was very optomistic going into this read. I read and waited, but grew so frustrated with the work that I had to put it down never to be read again.

The MC is refreshing and amusing. He's very real as a character.

The art style is reflective of when it was made, but seriously improves as the chapters progress.

The characters are pretty believable to some extent.

The original premise of the plot is actually pretty good.


The writing for developing the plot is horrible. The writing feels like looking at thinly sliced swiss cheese, so many holes and almost see read more

This anime reminds me of Stars wars a little but in medieval Chinese times, the war between the dark force and the light force makes it even more enjoyable, there are so many guilds/clans whatever you want to call them and they have their own masters and disciples which are all pretty strong, also it gets better their are another 4 kingdoms who are called the neutral force who do not want to get involved in the conflict between the two main forces, the main characters is similar to Goku from Dragonballz the way he looks and how after every battle his power just increases read more

Surprised their are no reviews yet for this manhwa considering it's being updated with 148 chapters already released, but no matter cause here is MY review.

Story - Ruler of the Land is about Han Bi Kwang the 6th disciple of the most powerful master of the dark clan. Despite this Han Bi Kwang has no desire to learn martial arts and only wants to find a wife and live a peaceful life. The story is quite good despite there not being any overall plot like becoming the strongest or taking over the world or anything like that. Mostly you just follow Han Bi read more
