After witnessing the shocking death of his mother, young Airen Farreira spends his days sleeping to escape from his painful reality, earning him the nickname, “the lazy lord”. Yet, in spite of others’ jeers and whispers, Airen has no intention of changing his ways. But one day he dreams of a mysterious swordsman, a man who continuously trains his swordsmanship continuously for 37 years, day and night, through thunders and snow and doesn’t let go of his sword even in his final moments. This dream sparks something in Young Lord and his body craves to wield a sword.

There are some genuinely positive aspects to this manhwa. Like the fact that the main character, Irene, isn’t just instantly made overpowered and that we actually get to see their progression from weak to strong. And I appreciate the fact that the antagonists don’t come across as one-dimensional baddies with an irrational hatred for Irene and are instead shown to be generally relatable people with their own struggles. It’s also nice how the story will be told from varying perspectives, including those of passing side characters. And the sword slashes and fight choreographies during the duels are pretty well done.
