The Lone Necromancer – Seongwu is a former special forces soldier who has returned to college after completing his national service. His ordinary life as a student is shattered during class one day when he and his fellow students are faced with a mysterious prompt asking them to “select a role.” Seongwu chooses the necromancer, a rare ability that grants him the power to control the undead. With the campus and outside world seemingly on the brink of collapse, Seongwu must use his newfound powers to battle fearsome monsters and help save his fellow students. But will they make it out alive?
The world is ending. Monsters from legends appear everywhere. They eat people, conquer the streets, and begin to make dungeons in the buildings and subways. If you could choose one job in this decrepit world, what would you choose? For a “necromancer” extinction is my playground and death, my wealth.
Based on the novel “Only I Am a Necromancer”:
“Chapter 1: Chapter 1
Commuting to school is hellish.
Sungwoo Yu was often exhausted when he finally arrived at campus after transferring three times, which took him two hours each way.
So, he tried his best to avoid his 9:30AM class as much as possible, but it didn’t work out as he wished because it was one of the required courses for his major.
“Urgh! Oh no! How did I manage to attend school in my freshman year? I think I have to make a choice between living near school and dropping out of college,” he grumbled, getting off the shuttle bus. He felt his whole body aching after the long commute.
Hanho Lee, who was a year younger, teased while following him, “Hey, why are you so weak-minded as a retired squad commander of the army special forces?”
The other day when he drank with Hanho, Sungwoo bragged about his heroic exploits when he was in the army. After that, Hanho made fun of him whenever he had a chance.
“Are you sure you were really an army special forces member? Aren’t you lying to me? You said you were done marching 10 kilometers quickly in full gear, right? Then why can’t you stand sitting on the bus or subway for two hours while commuting here?”
As if he felt what Hanho said was ridiculous, Sungwoo tapped him on the shoulder and said, “Hanho, can’t you stop preaching me until after you join the army? How long are you going to delay going to the army?”
“Well, let me tell you one thing, Sungwoo. The unification coin will prevail.”
Sungwoo clicked his tongue at his strong ambitions.”
