Episode 8 Review
Jin was told of the attack on his grandfather led by Nox. It was implied that his grandfather was gravely injured during the fight. This means that the huge sword Charyeok that fell on him was enough to defeat him. Jin has received the picture of his abducted grandfather along with a map to reach him. Jin is also aware that he is not the strongest fighter right now. He needs to train to face Charyeok users. At the same time, he wants to do it without obtaining Charyeok himself.
We know that Jin cannot survive like this and he will gain his own Charyeok as the power-up next. His friends are also trying similar tactics to improve their strength. Park Ilpyo’s conversation with Jin about his grandfather revealed the details of their childhood. Park uses Taekkyon showing incredible speeds. He motivates Jin to get even stronger from here on. The organization Nox is getting annoying for the tournament. They attacked one of the commissioners previously. Q was strong enough to get out of the situation. If all the commissioners are this strong, Nox won’t disrupt the tournament easily.
However, now it is an open war between the two. Jin is also getting into this as his grandfather is abducted by Nox. He is already worried about his grandfather but the picture complicates things even more. He has to go to the location and investigate it himself. This could affect his dream to win the tournament. The struggle to free his grandfather from a powerful organization starts. More exciting stuff coming in this trending anime!
