The Juo group, one of the 4 major groups of Korea.
The Chairman of the Juo Group was always from the Joo family, but the co-founders, the Oh’s, were the presidents of Juo’s main affiliates and the Foundation.
Hye-ji Oh, the granddaughter of President Oh, was currently the most influential of Oh heirs.
She was currently in hiding.
‘They prepared TWO dresses that match with Suhyuk? They’re crazy!’
She was relieved to find that Suhyuk had gotten rid of that tuxedo before boarding.
However, although Suhyuk didn’t wear his outfit, this T-length dress was not really her style.
That’s why she was going to make an excuse and change before the evening party.
To her dismay, the dress that her secretary showed her was also that sickening sandy pink color.
‘Sandy Pink…… I didn’t think much of it before, but now, I HATE it.’
As soon as she saw that color, she went to the nearest window and jumped.
Hye-ji, under the moonlight, cast her Gwanglim, “Witaechun(meaning: riding against the sky) Under the Moon”, which increases the leap force and speed of movement under the moon.
When Hye-ji’s Gwanglim was properly activated, there was no one in Juo’s guard team to follow her.
Hye-ji Oh was leaping on the railings and ornaments of the outer walls of the ship.
‘Why are they trying to resolve the fight they had made by making our generation get married? Old age ruins people, I swear. Suhyuk even has a crush, too.’
Suhyuk was currently in first and unrequited love.
Even those who do not know Suhyuk well could notice it if they observe him for a few days.
‘Dain from student council.’
Dain An, a genius first-year student who was co-summa cum laude of admission with Suhyuk.
When he sees her, he makes this stupid face.
Suhyuk, the perfect superman like in a drama or movie, has always been an ordinary high school student in front of Dain.
Hye-ji was very fond of his change and was quietly rooting for the two.
‘Dain didn’t seem uninterested in Suhyuk. Wait, maybe they’re crushing over each other?’
Hye-ji laughed as she thought of the two cute juniors.
‘A spare tux might go to Suhyuk as well, so I need to run away harder!’
Deciding to throw away all her sandy pink clothes at home, Hye-ji went inside a widow of an empty hall.
Hye-ji landed on a rug in the hallway without a sound.
‘There is someone.’
A group of people dressed in black business suits were seen far away.
Hye-ji opened the nearest door and hid herself.
As the door closed, the smell of tobacco came up with a little sweet aroma.
The ship was designated as a no-smoking area, but some areas were allowed.
‘It was a smoking lounge. Too bad.’
Hye-ji tried to jump out of the window before the smell of tobacco before the smell stuck to her clothes.
Hye-ji approached the window.
“I dismissed all the people from here. How did you get in?”
There was someone.
When Hye-ji turned her head to the voice, she saw a man in a tuxedo.
A figure clutching a cigarette with his tie loose and smoke rising from the cigar.
It was someone she knew.
‘…… Su-gyeom Oppa!’
Suhyuk’s cousin and almost fiancé of Hye-ji’s sister Hyejung, the workaholic Su-gyeom Joo.
When she was very young, she hung out with Su-gyeom.
In her now dim memory, Su-gyeom Joo had always been sweet to Hye-ji.
‘Not only because of the Juo’s war, it’s more awkward because of the engagement runaway incident.’
Unlike Suhyuk, with whom she had gone to elementary and middle school, Su-gyeom was hard to meet because of the huge age difference.
As time went on, it became more and more difficult to get along like they used to.
Hye-ji missed the timing to say hello.
Su-gyeom stubbed out his cigar on a stainless glass ashtray and operated a button.
All the windows opened, the sea breeze blew in, and cigarette smoke billowed out.
‘Since when did oppa even smoke? Wait, did he just stop smoking because of me?’
She didn’t know whether to apologize, thank him for his consideration, or just leave him be.
Su-gyeom, who was leaning on the window, wordlessly peered at Hye-ji.
Hye-ji Oh opened her mouth to speak, when,
The ship shook with a loud noise.
Hye-ji’s eyes widened in shock.
‘I can’t believe a ship weighing 50,000 tons is shaking this much!’
A few seconds later, she received a message on her device.
A natural-occurring psychic wave emission had been observed in the ship’s front, so they were going to anchor the ship for a while.
‘I think the evening party is going to be postponed as well. I’m glad it’s not enough to return the ship.’
Since the Other-world collision, there have been rare cases of accidents due to the release of natural psychic waves
Hye-ji was looking at the map of the psychic wave emitted area that was attached to the message, lost in thought.
“Take out the equipment card.”
Su-gyeom Joo glared over the sea and took out his own card.
* * *
The planned assassination of Juo and TC group’s heirs.
It is difficult to kill a human being who has such a position in the human world, even if he is the head of an Original clan.
Even more difficult when the assassination has to be done in secret.
It’s hard to kill, but it’ll be harder to finish their job without showing their identity.
There were a limited number of moves Kang-ryup Jeo could make.
‘Now I have to eliminate the least possible whens, wheres, and hows.’
‘Kang-ryup Jeo will target before midnight.’
There is a limited number of times the Sangboshimgeumpa was available to use per day.
He didn’t like to use it on ‘the one’s orders, so it was possible to estimate when he would use it.
‘If you use the prong of the Sangboshimgeumpa just before midnight, the limit will be restored soon after 0 o’clock, so his risks become low. If I were him, I’d use it before midnight.’
Next was ‘when’.
‘Places with fewer people. He’ll want to target them when they’re in their assigned cabins.’
But even after midnight, it will be difficult for the two heirs to rest in the cabin.
So finally, ‘how’ to proceed with the assassination was the most important part.
‘Jeo will be trying to cancel the Evening cocktail party.’
Evening moon-gazing cocktail party scheduled from 1 hour after gala dinner until late at dawn.
When the Evening cocktail party begins, it becomes difficult to identify where the two heirs are, and midnight passes during the party.
So how to cancel the Evening moon-gazing cocktail party?
‘I can infer it from the behavior patterns the villain had shown and the information from the game.’
The villain uses the ‘Sungungyukdong, khishilgyyuksuh’ strategy the most.
In short, ‘Sungdonggyuksuh.’
It meant to “say ‘the east!’ then attack the west”- confuse your enemies and attack the other side.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
‘In the Jamsil Ballpark incident, they took the security team away with two Other-worlds and targeted the chairman with a third Other-world. The diversionary was the villain’s favorite tactic.’
So the first move ought to be to stop the ship and cancel the party.
The second will be to remove the ship’s players.
The third will be to remove the security team.
The last will be to kill the two heirs.
‘The shaking ship has to be Jeo’s first move.’
The ocean waves caused by an underwater psychic wave shook the entire ship.
If you look at the instructions sent by the captain to the passenger, it is said to be a natural wave emission, but it is probably not.
There was also evidence.
[To-yeon Ok] Hey savior! That was just Kang-ryup Jeo!
[To-yeon Ok] He made it seem like a natural occurrence, but he can’t deceive my Moon palace map. That pig bastard just used Sangboshimgeumpa’s first ‘prong’!
The 9 teeth, 9 prongs of Sangboshimgeumpa.
You can perform miracles or blow powerful strikes nine times a day.
The more you use the prongs, the weaker the strength, and the last ninth prong is currently unavailable, according to Jeo.
‘The more you use them, the weaker it gets, except for last- the last one blows the most powerful strike, so it’s good he can’t use it.’
The remaining prongs are seven.
And other than these seven prongs, there were some other tricks up Jeo’s sleeve as well.
On the device, a message with an alarm sound and a map with coordinates surfaced.
[Emergency Notification SR++Class Other-world creation Guide]
As expected, the second move of Jeo.
With the support of the main villain, creating an ‘Other-world.’
Stopping the ship wasn’t just to stop the party.
‘Now the players on board, except the guard team, will move.’
The Other-world was created in the back of Cymopoleia.
On the other side of the ship were the top-rated cabins with the VVIPs.
* * *
Ocean View Suite.
After the sudden stop of the ship.
Nam-wook Jang had been saying a long, nagging commentary of the evacuation manual, location of life jackets, and lifeboats.
However, the atmosphere changed due to the alarm of the Other-world occurrence.
“SR++ class Other-world? Another Other-world without foreshadow!”
Nam-wook Jang panicked a little.
Suhyuk Joo immediately took out the equipment card and prepared to leave.
Si-hoo Do tried to follow him.
“Si-hoo, you need to rest.”
“Haha, it’s okay. The ship stopped. I might feel better hunting down Enemies in the Other-world.”
He said so, but since he had puked a few times, his face was still pale.
Suhyuk, who had noticed his complexion, began to threaten him quietly with a smiling face.
“If you try to get out now, I’ll knock you out cold. Do you want to wait out here unconscious, or just wait?”
Si-hoo couldn’t beat Suhyuk when he wasn’t sick, so if he fought him now, he’ll be a goner in no time.
If they fought, it’ll only be wasting Suhyuk’s strength, so Si-hoo quickly decided to give up.
Suhyuk nodded and leaned toward Nam-wook, who had been stiff.
“Nam-wook, please keep an eye on Shi-hoo.”
“Huh? No, I can fight! Last time, I―”
Nam-wook stopped speaking.
He was reminded of how powerful the Enemies looked and how pathetic he had been the last time at the Jamsil Ballpark incident.
Nam-wook tried to breathe and say he would support them, but before that, Suhyuk spoke first.
“There’s only one SR++class, right? There’s enough manpower already. There are Ui-shin, Hyo-don, Won-woo hyung, and Hye-ji noona. And my cousin and master! I don’t have anyone to leave Si-hoo with.”
Despite being convinced by Suhyuk’s words, Nam-wook could not answer properly.
Suhyuk opened the door with a bright voice.
“I’ll be back in a jiffy!”
Inside the room where Suhyuk disappeared.
Two people remained, Si-hoo laying on the sofa, and Nam-wook stiff as a statue.
Si-hoo blurted out,
“Nam-wook, you wanna play word chain?”
Si-hoo, who had been rejected, made a pouty face.

There are currently plenty of excellent players on board.
My playable characters, NPCs.
There was no one not good enough for an SR++ Other-world.
‘All the players on board will be gone to the Other-world.’
Except for the security team.
They still remain by the heirs.
‘But when the crisis comes, the heirs will convince the security team to go into the battlefield.’
Like in the Jamsil ballpark in the game.
The attack had already begun on the backside of the ship, and the extermination announcement began to rise in turn.
A message call was heard mixed with the alarm of the player SAT―K.
[To-yeon Ok] An Original clan is on a cloud making its way to the front of the ship! It’s hiding itself, but I can see it clear as day- he’s still bad at barriers and hiding!
In the ‘Journey to the West,’ Jeopalgye(or “Pigsy” in the English translation) rode a slow cloud.
The only Original clan to ride a cloud here was Kang-ryup Jeo.
He was coming to the Cymopoleia himself.
‘I’m starting to see it on the minimap!’
When I checked the “Open map” in my exclusive menu, I saw one dot approaching this way.
[To-yeon Ok] I think Gang-ryup is going to use ‘prongs’……! He’s going to break Cymopoleia’s barrier by disguising it as a naturally occurring psychic wave!
The surrounding psychic-wave airflow began to change.
The Sangboshimgeumpa’s prong is trying to exert its power in the form that Jeo wants.
‘The class of ships with this scale is R+++class, like the Jamsil Ballpark. Normally, the barrier will break as Jeo wanted it to.’
Bang bang bang-!
A high-density wave poured toward Cymopoleia.
The psychic wave cut through the night sky.
With that much power, the R+++ barrier will be broken, and I will not be safe standing on the deck.
I peered at the psychic wave.
However, the power embodied by the prong of the Sangboshimgeumpa was blocked by a barrier of light and disappeared.
The barrier flashed then disappeared.
It was the power of Jiho Hwang.
A message arrived from Jiho, who was watching the situation on the Moon palace map next to To-yeon Ok.
[Jiho Hwang] the barrier I planted on Cymopoleia is broken.
Jeo was never good with barriers.
Based on that point, Jiho, who is good at barriers, worked cleverly in advance.
‘It worked. Without revealing the involvement of the Tiger clan, I borrowed the power of Jiho to consume one of the prongs.’
Six prongs left with this.
[Jiho Hwang] Good luck.
Jiho’s turn was over.
If I don’t do well, Jiho will intervene.
It was really time for me to do my thing.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
