But when the fourth generation leader is accused of colluding with the enemy, he is forced to disband the sect and commit suicide to protect his son, Moowon. With no family and allies left, Moowon leads a dreary life under close surveillance... until a surprise attack from the Silent Night gives him a chance to escape to the mountains. There, the young warrior trains to master the fighting techniques of his predecessors, before the mysterious disappearance of a loved one brings him back to the mainland. Follow Moowon as he embarks on a journey to avenge his father's death and take down the villains who threaten to plunge the world into darkness!

Are you are looking for manhwa with original story, a well develop character, an amazing and unique art, and the great enjoyment and hype of an awesome power fantasy? Than this is the one you've been looking for.

The characters are not stale. We got the main characters that can fulfill all of our power fantasy craving but still able to be wise and humble. We have the side characters that really contribute to the development of the story and not just there, just because. We have the antagonists that makes the fighting scene awesome and crazy good.

The art is also very unique. If you are read more

This is probably the best example of a manhwa perfectly balanced between hype and story.

Jin Mu-Won starts off as your normal shounen-esq protagonist. He's got some skills and he's a cut above the rest but he's not that OP, he has some room for growth. The entire first arc is pretty much the entire plot of your generic shounen anime. But then after the introduction arc he immediately goes and trains in the mountains for 5 years and comes back broken AF. So far he has never been defeated and his character arc has already been completed.

But that's just where Legend of the read more

So here we go. My pfp is of The Legend of the Northern Blade without knowing this was on MAL. So does it deserve a higher rating than it currently has(8.25)? Duh.

Story - 9/10
The story is a revenge plot.... or so you might think after starting. Well it is. But when you keep reading, you'll feel there's so much more. It starts off as the father of the mc getting betrayed. Very hurtfully. The kid can't learn martial arts as he was taught books instead of fighting. But oh damn is studying better! So he will be learning martial arts and go off for read more

Overall, I'm enjoying this manhwa. I like the style and the depiction of special abilities and moves. The main character of course has the usual tragic backstory, but he doesn't win all of his fights which I like, as usually the main is too OP for anything to even phase them. Most of the side characters also have reasonably good backstories, with the main getting stronger and wiser as he continues. The fight scenes are also extremely well done, with quite calculated and precise battles taking place. There are lots of different sects and 'groups' so it isn't just the 'good vs evil' troupe which read more
