Soh Jinhong, The Rosy-Cheeked Sword Fiend (2):The Elder rests on a bench as Ryong passes by. Walking through, Soh Jinhong attempts to complete his assassination of "Jang Cheong, the Thunderlord" but Gang Ryong intercepts him, much to Jinhong's shocked incredulity. With Jinhong retreating, Ryong tries to inform the Elder he nearly died and that an assassin was after him for some reason. Cursing his retainer, Jinhong resolves to repay Ryong for interfering.
In the evening, Jinhong arrives at the shrine where the Elder was meditating, with blood-lust in his eyes.
