Chapter 338: Impact and Aftermath

[Egostic announces his retirement!]

After Egostic officially announced on air that he was retiring.

That day, Korea went crazy.

No, no.

Is there any other way to describe it than just crazy?


[laughs when everything is fucked up].


[If you think everything is fucked up, fuck you]

[World without mangoes? I’m going to kill myself]


Korea just flipped.



[Real Fact) 104 reasons why the country is fucked]

[If you just don’t want to live anymore, fuck you]

[Don’t fuck with me don’t fuck with me don’t fuck with me don’t fuck with me]

[No you can’t just retire like this one day without telling me, fuck you]

[Where are you going dad? I’m cold… Where are you going dad? I’m cold… Where are you going dad? I’m cold…]

[Like the country’s defense power has dropped by 50%…]

[Is it true that the S-class hero, #1 viewer streamer, and Korea’s Living Legend retired in one day?]

[Now, just looking at mangoes in the supermarket brings tears to my eyes…]

[Overseas mango fans are so fucking hilarious…]

[(Breaking news) Egostic, actually moving to Japan?!]

[My world fell apart today].

[(Breaking news) mango is April Fool’s day?


It wasn’t just the Egostic Fancafe.

In other general communities, on social media, in the news, or just chatting the topic of conversation was all about Egostic.

It was weird, actually, when you think about it.

Shouldn’t everyone be happy when a S-class villain decides to retire and stop terrorizing?

But instead, everyone was in a state of shock, like they couldn’t believe it.

To understand what the hell happened, we need to take a closer look at the character of Egostic.

Egostic, alias Mangostick.

Although he’s technically a S-class villain.

In fact, he’s averted as many crises in South Korea as Stardus, another S-class hero.

When the country’s only super-giant corporation was conducting illegal bio-experiments in the center of Seoul’s underground, a monster escaped.

It was Egostic who stopped it by cutting off its legs in advance.

When the conglomerate went insane and invaded Seoul with machines they built, it was Egostic who stopped them.

When a maiden from a cult was destroying Seoul with storms that incapacitated even the heroes, he was the one who swooped in to save the day.

When one of the three strongest villains in the world invaded earth by sea, he formed an alliance and prevented Korea from becoming the only country to be attacked. When the evil king called the Devil tried to resurrect in the trade center, he was stopped. When a cult summoned monsters to destroy the earth, it was also Egostic that stopped them.

Though he’s still a villain, he’s never killed anyone, though he’s always been a terrorist. The only time he gets blood on his hands is when he takes out other villains. In fact, he’s probably saved thousands if not millions of lives in his career.

In addition, he has created an alliance of villains called Egostream, created a trilateral alliance, and traveled abroad as a K-Villain, providing plenty of material for K-Pop TV…

window.pubfuturetag = window.pubfuturetag || [];window.pubfuturetag.push({unit: "64cc9e79c7059f003e4ad4b0", id: "pf-5109-1"})In a way, just hearing what experts say about the number of people who were saved thanks to Egostream, how much it helped security, and how much the economic trickle-down effect in Korea happened because of it, he was already popular.

In fact, even without that, he already had a solid fan base for other reasons.

[Hello, everyone, it’s Egostic!]

His greeting was the key to terrorism.

In fact, terrorism is not unlike a blockbuster movie. There are dazzling gadgets flying around, except there’s the problem of real people dying.

However, Egostic solves this problem by never killing anyone. That, coupled with his natural ability to talk, and his regular streams, was enough to make him a fan favorite, if nothing else.

As such, South Korea had enough firepower that one terrorist attack could take over all of the real-time trends for days.

…And then he suddenly announced his retirement, without a single warning.

‘Anyway, today…will be my last time playing.’

And with that he shut down everything, including his site, and disappeared.

The first thing that was affected was the financial world, which is subject to all sorts of variables.

“Hey, we’re losing foreign capital like crazy! The stock market is all blue lights!”

“Shit! We should sell everything right now!”

South Korea is actually a very special country.

It has a very high economic level, but a small population, with only two A-list heroes and one S-list hero…and a villain population that would be the envy of any industrialized country.

But offsetting all of this is the fact that the country has never technically fallen to terrorism on a large scale. Even the Moonlight Gate massacre, which threatened to destroy the entire world, was stopped by South Korea’s own forces.

A country with a lot of terrorism, but a strangely low death toll and good security, that was South Korea.

And everyone knew who was at the center of it all.

So when it was announced that Egostic was retiring South Korea’s financial markets, prepared for terrorism but not for this kind of economic shock, were about to collapse.

The butterfly effect caused by Egostic had turned the world blue, and in any other country, it would have led to the Great Depression.


Korea was not like any other normal country.

“…Buy them all.”

“Yes, Chairman!”

window.pubfuturetag = window.pubfuturetag || [];window.pubfuturetag.push({unit: "663633fa8ebf7442f0652b33", id: "pf-8817-1"})In the center of Seoul, a huge building towered over all the other buildings.

At the top of it, in the president’s office, a woman with light blue hair was saying so with a cold expression.

After the dissolution of the HanEun Group, they were the new super-giant corporation of South Korea.

The de facto ruler of Korea, the black shadow that lurks in the shadows, holding virtually all the shares of other companies.

Lee Seola was the only one who saw it all coming and she single-handedly propped up South Korea’s economy in the aftermath of Egostic retirement.

When foreigners sell their stocks, she buys.

The stock price, which had been falling vertically, stabilized somewhat when mysterious ghost companies started buying them all.

It was only possible because Lee Seola, who had controlled all of Korea’s refining industry until now, had astronomical cash in her pocket.


“Chairman, the defense has been successful, you can rest assured.”

“Okay… Get out.”

“Yes, Chairman.”

And with that, attendant bowed and left.

Lee Seola, who was leaning back in her chair and covering her face with her hands, muttered in pain.

“…Yes, it was mine anyway.”

Korea belongs to Lee Seola.

In fact, even the stocks thrown by foreigners were originally hers.

So, since I got mine back, it doesn’t matter, right?

Just like that, the A-list hero, Icicle, quietly saved Korea from behind the scenes.


…Somehow, the destruction of her hard-won country was practically tantamount to the destruction of her business, so she managed to keep the economy from collapsing.

Still, she lost a lot of cash, so she’s still bleeding.

“…Da-in, really, haha… ”

…This debt, you’re going to pay it back.

If not with money, then with your body.

Lee Seola muttered to herself in exhaustion.

Looking at the darkened sky outside, she thought.

“…Come to think of it, Haru.”

Is she okay now?

At that time.


The interior of a dark apartment.

Within it, a woman with blonde hair stared out the window with vacant blue eyes.


Stardus hadn’t yet come to terms with reality.

She’d been like this since the day before today.

Egostic had retired.

So what happens now?

We’ll never meet again.

He’s retired. He’s not terrorizing anymore.

…I see.

So we won’t see each other anymore.


I won’t see him anymore?

He won’t come looking for me anymore?

Don’t be ridiculous, I can still hear his voice.

I can still hear him smiling, his voice sounding like he’s in a good mood behind his mask, saying, “Hello, Stardus!”


I don’t see him like that.


When it finally dawned on her, she realized that a single tear was falling from her eye.
