The scene switches to the room with Viole, Wangnan, and Lurker. That hood guy with gogles immediately escapes the room and closes the door. Lurker asks, 'are you trying to get all of us killed?' And they have a mini convo and Lurker suddenly makes a move but Wangnan crushes his left arm. It turns out Lurker controlled shinsoo with a controller in his right pocket (a pocket, as in the one on pants).
Here goes a convo: (W - Wangnan; L - Lurker)
W: I'm not taking a revenge of mine. This is a revenge from the people who suffered, a revenge of Nya... Redeem yourself with death, Lurker.
L: Nonsense. Don't pretend to be a good guy. *chuckles*
W: What's so funny huh!?
L: How is this not funny? Excusing yourself for killing by saying this is a revenge? Do you think that will make you a different murderer (unlike me)?
W: *giga punch Lurker* Don't compare me to a piece of trash like you.
L: Do you know why I started this job? It's because I borrowed money from that president!
L: I used to borrow money to climb the tower just like you. But at some point, I realized my debt got too big. I begged for mercy, to spare me. Then I had no choice but to give up on the tower. I'm just like you! Just another victim!
W: Do think that will make me for give you!?
L: One day, the president called me and told me that this son is going to climb the tower. He asked for help. He told me that his son is his most prized possession of his and he will do anything for his future. His son was the one he loved the most. Then it turned out the president poured all his money to rig the test. BWAHAHAHAHAHA Isn't that so funny? He stole all that money, ruining others' dreams, for his love? Love? Is that the thing that crushed my dreams? Dude, Mr.Justice. Tower is this kind of place. There is no reason to hate or despise another. You just have to move on. And there's nothing else. So, what is so big of a deal for killing Nya?
W: STFU coward! Just move on? That's your conclusion? So killing Nya was an obvious thing?! *shoves the shinsoo ball (blue pokeball?) into Lurker's mouth (ofc it doesn't fit)* I will never forgive you for that. I can't. I'll never.. forgive you. *shakes* Dammit! Forgive. I should do.. right? Yeah, in the end, Nya, you and I.. are all the same. That's the only way the people who suffered from Nya, will forgive him... And so.. I guess I will.. forgive you.
L: *Stands up* Forgive? What gives you the right to do so!? Just kill me! (Da fu) No one in this tower can forgive me.
W: *punches him, knocking him back to the ground* I! I will change it. I'll become the king of this tower and change this tower, that made all of you like this! So there will no longer be people like you or Nya. That's the reason why I'm climbing the tower. No matter what others say. Even if I fail thousand times and more. I will never give up. If you are man enough, you should have this kind of dream and guts. Got it? So now.. please make a good use of time Nya has given you. *walks past Viole, who was there all along* Thanks Viole, you can end it now.
Viole connects the connector as Wangnan sits on a side of a bed. Beep sound rings in the background and a voice announces the end of the test, 'The winner is..
Jyu Viole Grace.
Total 8 individuals. Congratualations for passing the test.'
The last thing the manhwa shows is a remote with two connectors with screen reading, 'Ja Wangnan's connector is now connected.'
Webtoon came out early, so the review must be coming out early too!...
That's your mistake.
After seeing the comments on the last chapter, I felt like I was receiving lots of love,
So it gave mea lot of strength even as I worked all night.
I always felt meeting the deadline was a lonely work, but it looks like I was wrong, and you readers were there with me all along.
Of course I'm human too so sometimes I'll make mistakes...
And the thought that one day the love you've shown me will be replaced by criticism weighs heavily on my mind...
But I'll try my best to produce a great manhwa for you all.
My pen feels unusually heavy today.
I won't talk about this week's chapter because the explanations will be found in next week's chapter. ^^
There's a limit on Neighbours (서로이웃, Suhroiut; GoDai: Some sort of cafe networking thing SIU uses) so I'm planning to reveal my Neighbours information on the cafe.
Some of the info will still go around amongst Neighbours.
If I keep blocking I feel like I'll draw a line between me and the readers, so I think I'll decide which information to reveal then transfer right away.
I'll talk about some of the general information concerning Season 2 in next week's afterword.
Blog Post of June 25, 2012Edit
I'm posting this because people seem to have misunderstoof my intentions.
When Wangnan says that he would forgive Lurker in this chapter,
It's not because Lurker is a good guy or anything.
Many people think I'm forgiving Lurker by beautifying him;
Whatever his past was, I had no plans to beautify his actions in any way.
The reason why Wangnan could not kill Lurker is that in the current situation where people must step on each other to climb up,
Lurker, who killed Nia "because he had to climb the Tower",
Is a more "righteous" human being compared to Wangnan, who was trying to kill Lurker for "moral reasons".
Thats why Wangnan couldn't him,
It doesn't mean he forgave Lurker because Lurker because he's a good person ^^;
Even then Wangnan says he'll "forgive" him because Wangnan's trying desperately to keep morality alive in this utterly amoral reality.
Lurker has already abandoned hope in those morals, and that's why he says "You can't forgive me" to Wangnan.
In the end, Wangnan says that if that's the case, he'll change the Tower himself.
Although this is information that will be briefly discussed in the next chapter, it is a part that many people are misunderstanding,
So I have written this on my blog.in the fear that I may be sending the wrong message to young readers.
Every time I draw manhwa, there are many times when I feel the limits of my own skills of presentation.
I will try harder to send a more proper message, even if just a little more.
