Top Star Lee Gun-Woo - Chapter 10: Crazy Presence (1)
Chapter 10: Crazy Presence (1)
Gun-woo opened his eyes.
The world looked different.
The world, which used to look black and white, looked full of beautiful colors.
Gun-woo burst into laughter.
His clothes were covered with a thick layer of waste, and his face was covered with sweat.
Looking at the time, it was already morning.
In his lower abdomen, there was already energy that was the size of a marble.
‘Right. The energy I accumulated that night is…’
He was able to resonate his emotions with others and absorb the positive and negative energy that the others exuded.
That resonance has been transmitted no matter how far away.
Of course, some things are lost to nature depending on the distance, but even a little will come to him.
There was no need to cling to the very weak energy of nature.
Emotions have power.
It was the true nature of the Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method that was able to turn it into an energy.
If it were him in his previous life, he would have criticized it as an out-of-the-box trick.
But come to think of it, it might also be included in nature.
Gun-woo regarded persons who use the Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method as just a passing martial artist, but it was the one who best suited his current situation.
Gun-woo breathed deeply and cheered himself up.
Then he frowned at his terrible smell.
“Let’s wash up first.”
The solidified waste material, like dirty jelly, aroused disgust in him.
He frowned and went to the bathroom.
He couldn’t just put it in the washing machine, so he hand-washed his clothes in moderation and washed them for a long time.
He looked in the mirror and saw a very handsome man looking at himself.
“Well, that’s fine.”
It was the first time he had said that to himself.
It felt like his mental age was lowered a bit, but that would also be reasonable.
It felt as if the dissonance between his mind and body had disappeared.
He had lost fat and his body was muscular enough.
From a martial artist’s point of view, it was still lacking, but it still looked good as if it had been made well.
He was tall, but his proportions improved considerably, which caught his eye.
Perhaps the higher level of Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method will have a greater effect.
Anyway, it’s a type of martial art whose main objective is to be a part of the Royal family. 
Gun-woo came out of the bathroom and checked the time.
It was 9 o’clock.
It was his time to go to the morning exercise.
Then his smartphone rang.
It was Seung-yeob.
-Are you ready? Come out to the station
– You said you were going to work part-time. Did you forget?
“Oh, was it today?”
– I knew this would happen. Anyway, hurry up and come out.
He forgot it was today.
Of course, there was no schedule.
He was helping his mother’s shop, but these days, she had noticed what he was doing.
He had no choice but to do so because she gave him money to tell him not to just help her and go to the academy.
He couldn’t pretend he didn’t know his mother’s desires.
Gun-woo got dressed and went outside.
He’s going quite far, so he’s dressed up after looking through his closet.
When he told his mother that he was going to work part-time on set with Seung-yeob, his mother smiled proudly and saw him off.
Seeing that she was happy even though he was just a part-timer, Gun-woo felt strange.
Gun-woo walked towards the subway station.
He had a strong sense of presence by properly using the Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method, and it caught the attention of the people around him because it matched his appearance.
It was so intense that they couldn’t take his eyes off him.
Gun-woo didn’t pay much attention to it, probably because he got used to the gaze.
As a martial artist, he shouldn’t do that, but in modern society, he was only a bit stressed.
As he went to the front of the station, he saw Seung-yeob standing in front of his car and looking at his phone.
He was dressed up, and even looked a little awkward.
Seung-yeob, who saw Gun-woo, pretended to understand him, and then stared blankly at him.
Gun-woo laughed at his stupid expression and opened his mouth.
“What are you looking at like that?”
“Are you really taking care of yourself?”
“What kind of bullshit are you saying?”
Seung-yeob tilted his head as if he was strange no matter how much he thought about it.
“Wow, a celebrity?”
“I think so too, it’s because I see that there is his manager too.”
He could hear the voices of people passing by.
Seung-yeob paid attention to his outfit, but he couldn’t be compared to Gun-woo.
Gun-woo was just wearing cotton pants and a neat coat, exuding an atmosphere like looking at a pictorial.
Seung-yeob was popular because he was handsome, but he definitely looked like a manager when he was next to Gun-woo.
Like a manager, driving a car and waiting.
Seung-yeob coughed in vain as if he had heard their voices.
There was no sign of displeasure on his face.
There was no reason to do that because his friend was good, anyways.
Gun-woo, who has been in trouble with Seung-yeob since he was young, was more like a brother to Seung-yeob.
That’s why even when he hadn’t heard from him for about a year, they were friendly as if they had just met yesterday.
“Have you eaten? My brother brought kimbap.”
“I don’t eat anything other than cheese kimbap.”
“Eat a little.”
Seung-yeob smiled, then got into the car.
As soon as Gun-woo got into the passenger seat, he ate kimbap. 
It was bulgogi kimbap , not cheese kimbap. 
Seung-yeob started driving the car cheerfully.
Seung-yeob then played a girl group song that was popular these days.
It was an idol group which was better at dancing and performance than singing, but it was nice anyways.
However, as girl groups always do, there were quite a few antis because of their poor singing skills.
Gun-woo knew it too.
“Green Wings?” 
Seung-yeob nodded vigorously at Gun-woo’s words.
“Hye-min is so pretty. A real goddess.”
“I don’t mind the, uh, Sweetie.” 
“It’s old. How old are you?” 
“It was no joke in the army.”
Seung-yeob nodded at Gun-woo’s words.
Gun-woo searched Green Wings on his smartphone.
Their visuals were definitely good.
But he wasn’t so drawn to them.
He wasn’t really even tempted, at least when he had seen many girls more beautiful than them because of the memories from his previous life.
The rogues of the brothel that he knew had non-human beauty.
Seung-yeob hummed the song as if he was excited.
“Say~ say~… Yep~ yep~! Say yep~!”
“Never Say Goodbye!”
Seung-yeob, unfortunately, was tone-deaf.
Seung-yeob did not stop singing despite Gun-woo’s words.
As Gun-woo hummed the song together as if he had lost, Seung-yeob drew a satisfied smile.
Their destination was Seonbi Village in Yeongju.
It is a theme park constructed by Yeongju City to restore traditional houses of the Joseon Dynasty and recreate their daily lives to experience Confucian culture.
It was a pretty good place for a historical drama filming location.
Of course, it would be the first time Gun-woo would be there, but it wasn’t the case for Seung-yeob.
“I’ve done it a few times before. Do you know In-seok?”
“In-seok? Oh, that guy? What’s up with him?”
“Oh, I went with him here, but he fell off and all his teeth were gone.”
“Then, am I a replacement?”
“There’s no such thing as a replacement. You have no specific role, you just have to stand behind them. It’s 100,000 won per day  and that’s fine. Filming today is not difficult. The weather is moderately cold and nice, isn’t it? Just trust this hyung and suck the honey.” 
“Not bad. But, you sure are twisted these days…”
Gun-woo became anxious when Seung-yeob said that.
Anyway, Seung-yeob had a lot of filming experience like this, and it would not be bad to believe that he will appear as a supporting actor in an independent movie soon.
“I’ll sleep. Wake me up when we arrive.”
“Oh, you really have no manners.”
Gun-woo closed his eyes and cultivated his energy.
It was difficult to do it in a moving car.
This is because, even if the stability of the Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method was excellent, he could have fallen into trouble if he did it wrong.
He had just tried it’s effectiveness and it already yielded results.
He could feel his accumulated energy in detail and he could already decide the direction of its movement.
Since he had the experience of achieving this state of body in his previous life, if the vessels of his body were completed, even if his circumstances were poor, he would be able to achieve some degree of achievement.
The road to Sojucheon  was long and far.
Now, he had to set it as his goal.
: Since the Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method is about making someone perfect (like, making someone a beauty, giving someone a great voice, giving someone a great body), it can definitely attract a Royal Family and perhaps, they could have a relationship with them.
 Kimbap: Gimbap, also romanized as kimbap, is a Korean dish made from cooked rice and ingredients such as vegetables, fish and meats that are rolled in gim—dried sheets of seaweed—and served in bite-sized slices. The origins of gimbap are debated.
 Bulgogi Kimbap: Bulgogi Kimbap (불고기 김밥) is Korean seaweed rice rolls that are filled with Bulgogi (Korean marinated BBQ beef) and other vegetable fillings. These fillings typically include; carrots, blanched seasoned spinach, yellow radish pickles, perilla leaves and seasoned burdock root.
 Cheese Kimbap: It’s like a Bulgogi Kimbap but instead of Bulgogi, it’s cheese.
 Green Wings: name of the kpop group.
 Sweetie: another kpop group
: Seung-yeob was asking Gun-woo if how old was he that he still hypes/simps for an old group instead of the younger ones.
 100,000 korean won: about 87 us dollars.
 Just trust this hyung and suck the honey.: Seung-yeob was saying for Gun-woo to just shut his mouth and believe him.
 Sojucheon: (小周天) is an abbreviation of the yin and yang circulation of one of the Qin Dynasty’s second to none method as one of the methods of cultivating chi energy.
