When he was eight years old, Yu Ijin was the sole survivor of a fiery plane crash in a foreign land. To survive, he became a notorious mercenary—honing his arm-to-arm capabilities, marksmanship, and combat prowess into those of a skilled predator. However, 10 years later, after encountering soldiers deployed from South Korea, he rediscovers his remaining family: an adorable little sister named Dayun and a warm-hearted grandfather.

Upon returning to his home country, a brand new trial is presented to Ijin—to assume the mundane life of a typical high school student. From scheming bullies to newfound friendships, every experience is new for Ijin. However, when his past begins to catch up to him, Ijin will have to use his years of experience on the battlefield to protect his loved ones.

Teenage mercenary is a webtoon which is a great read just to have fun. It doesn't try to reinvent anything. But it's perfectly fine with the way it is. It introduces a bunch of characters quickly and it keeps you hooked with the cutthroat pacing. It doesn't give the audience a chance to be bored for a sec.
It finds excuses to have a fight scene which is the best part of this webtoon and the art is gorgeous
I generally hate cliche, predictable shows/manga but this has been really enjoyable so far and I'm really invested in his backstory too..
If you like a story where MC ...

1/2 of this manhwa is Ijin beating the sh!t out of bullies/criminals.
The other half is cute and wholesome family moments with some comedy for good measure.

Characters- 10/10
The characters are deep, have a lot of personality, and are well developed and fleshed out.

Story- 8/10
The story is split up into different arcs that all involve Ijin beating people up. Enjoyable, but can get a bit dull after a while.

Art- 10/10
