For a monk to live in the Murim world was deemed impossible. And in this harsh world there lived a man who refused to kill, even if he was being attacked. He sought no glory, he found no victory, but each and every time someone tried attacking him, he dodged. He dodged and dodged and dodged, till he became the great 'Murim Monk'. Though he thought that his journey ended there, more was expected of him. After a 100 long years of living in the Murim World, he reincarnates into his former body into a world where monsters of different species hunt and are hunted by humans.
10 years ago, portals opened across the world. Through these portals, various monsters began to pass through. And as soon as more and more portals appeared, more humans began to gain access to a system with superhuman benefits. Though, even with the power of the system, mankind eventually became extinct due to internal disputes. And now, exactly 10 years after that event, Argus, the great warrior who fought through it all, was drenched in a pool of his own blood. Slowly, as he begins to close his eyes, he feels the long lost peace return to his soul. But the Gods had a different plan for him. After Argus's vision is blurred out temporarily, his eyelids pop back open. He sees the sun still shining bright in the sky, and he finds no portal to be near him. "Wh-Where am I? H-How am I still alive?" As he questions himself further, he begins to realise that he now stands in another world. "But wait. Why are my arms so thin? Why do I feel so short?" He walks to the a river to see his reflection. "What the...? How in the world did I reincarnate in the body of a teenager?!"
