Shinwonryu is a Shinsoo manipulation style which can only be mastered by "Those who have opened the door" (most likely the Irregulars).[1][2]

This technique compresses Shinsoo around onto a single point and releases it as a huge explosion. According to the "God" of guardians, this technique is far above what ordinary Regulars can hope to achieve; a small amount of Shinsoo can cause great destruction.[2] A tired Baam, using a single baang of this technique on a pack of big Crystal Shards, was able to utterly annihilate all of them in an instant[3] lending credence to the sheer power of the technique.

  • ...a devastating shinsoo explosion...
  • ...that absolutely annihilates the Crystal Shards

Notes and Trivia

  • Baam found this control skill fundamentally foreign in comparison to everything else he had ever learnt, needing two months to learn it despite it being used on him.[2]
  • The "God" of guardians can only use this technique in the Hell Express.[2]
  • SIU based the visual on "light" rather than "water" for shinsoo.[4]
  • The technique has been shown to be able to surpass the spell endowing immortality to 43rd Floor inhabitants.[5][6] This has been assumed by the fandom to be a result of the way the shinsoo is controlled.
  • The meaning of 신원류 ("shinwonryu") is ambiguous as SIU has not yet provided the corresponding hanja spelling, when several alternatives are possible.[7][8] In particular, 신 ("shin") is likely 神 ("god/divine", which could also refer to shinsoo), and 원류 ("wonryu") could be either 圓 ("won") and 流 ("ryu") ("circle style") or 流派 ("wonryu") ("origin"). It is likely that SIU is playing with several of the meanings.

  7. Zumisumi's name analysis
  8. Post by Cletus originally at bato.to: [... 신원류 can be interpreted as] 신원류(神流派) = 神(shin) + 流派(wonryu): 神 (god, but it is better be shinsoo in this case.); 流派 (wonryu) [noun] 1. The main stream of river (synonym: 水源: a source of water supply) / 2. Nature of matter/phenomenon (synonym 淵源: an origin, a source, a beginning). So it has nothing to do with that blackhole whatever.
