The 100th Regression of the Max-Level Player - RMLP Chapter 10: Taegyu Bae (Part 2)
“I’m Won’s big brother,” he said.
“Big brother?” Taegyu muttered with a sneer.
“Didn’t I tell you before? If you don’t want to get beaten up, watch your mouth. But now you’re coming with your big brother to the hideout and causing trouble?”
“Oh, no! I didn’t say anything…” Ryu Min protested.
“Tsk, you’re a fool. You and your big brother are both done for,” Taegyu said, his eyes locked onto Ryu Min.
Although Taegyu was still expressionless, he noticed a flicker of fear in Ryu Min’s eyes.
“Haha, what a loser. You’re scared over nothing,” he thought.
He had suspected that Ryu Min might put up a fight, but it seemed he was mistaken.
“Well, it’s too early to judge just yet,” Taegyu thought as he glanced over at the other guy.
He couldn’t hear anyone else coming, so it seemed like they had only sent two people to find them.
“Is this guy really worth fighting?” Taegyu wondered.
He had fought many opponents in his life as a gang member, even some who were smaller than Ryu Won.
“But underestimating someone based on their size is a mistake. I need to see what this guy can do,” Taegyu thought.
He signaled to his friends, who nodded and stepped forward with him.
“Well, well, well. It’s a good day to be alive. Someone actually has the balls to confront Taegyu?” one of the guys said.
“Your big brother’s supposed to be a tough fighter, right? If you’re so confident, how about you take on all three of us?” another guy added, sneering.
Despite their threatening demeanor, Ryu Min didn’t show any sign of fear.
“Looks like he’s got some guts. Let’s see what he’s made of,” Taegyu thought.
They were close enough to strike now, so Taegyu was ready to see what Ryu Min could do.
“I love a good fight, especially when it’s between scrappy underdogs,” Taegyu thought as the tension mounted.
Suddenly, Ryu Min launched an unexpected attack and landed a blow.
“Argh, you bastard!” one of Taegyu’s friends exclaimed as he swung a punch at Ryu Min.
But Ryu Min was too fast, dodging the punch and landing another hit on the first guy, knocking him to the ground.
The other guys rushed forward to attack, but Ryu Min continued to dodge and strike with lightning speed.
“Damn it, he’s good,” Taegyu thought as he watched his friends being taken down one by one.
Although they had come looking for a fight, Taegyu realized that these guys were no match for Ryu Min.
It didn’t take long for all three of them to fall to the ground.
Bae Taegyu’s eyebrows furrowed like a bowstring.
He had wondered how well someone so small and lanky could fight, but now he had his answer.
“It’s nothing special.”
While his boxing skills seemed somewhat decent, it was nothing special to Bae Taegyu, who had a background in the sport.
“Hey, Won’s brother. Where did this guy learn to box?”
As he walked past the fallen members of his clown crew, Bae Taegyu talked.
“Looks like they never taught you how big of a difference there is in boxing weight classes.”
Ryu Min looked up as Bae Taegyu stood in front of him.
Bong Taegyu was 185cm tall with a sturdy build, while Ryu Min was 165cm tall and looked fragile.
The difference in weight classes was obvious, and one could easily predict the outcome of a fight between the two without even watching them.
However, to Bae Taegyu’s surprise, Ryu Min didn’t seem discouraged at all.
“Looks like you don’t watch the news either, do you?”
Ryu-min clicked his tongue in a pathetic manner, and Bae Taegyu’s veins bulged on his forehead.
“What news, you little shit?!”
Frustrated, Bae Taegyu threw a sucker punch, which Ryu Min easily dodged with a quick turn of his head.
Most people would have been hit and staggered by the punch, but Ryu Min managed to avoid it effortlessly.
Bae Taegyu continued to throw punches and kicks, trying to land a hit on Ryu Min, but to no avail.
He had hoped to gain an advantage in the fight by taking the first move, but things didn’t go as planned.
“If you’d watched the news, you’d know that you can’t just come at a player like me like that.”
Ryu Min casually dodged Bae Taegyu’s attacks and then struck with a precise punch.
Bae Taegyu was hit right in the face, but he had enough resilience to stay on his feet.
“Humph! Did a mosquito just bite me or something? This isn’t even ticklish!”
Ryu Min didn’t care about Taegyu’s taunts and connected with another punch.
Taegyu’s nose felt numb.
“I’ll kill you!”
With deadly force, he swung his fist, but it missed its mark.
After a few more blows, Ryu Min no longer felt the need to even listen to him.
His anger was all-consuming.
Regardless of anything else, Ryu Min continued to target Taegyu’s face.
Even with weakened strength, punching someone in the face was bound to leave damage.
As evidence, Taegyu’s nose bone caved in and his lips burst open, bleeding.
When it comes to one-sided attacks like this, strength and skill don’t matter.
“Fuck, just one hit. Just one and…!”
Despite getting beaten up, Taegyu didn’t give up.
He couldn’t admit to losing against someone like that.
“This isn’t the time to be prideful.”
Ryu Min’s fist once again struck Taegyu’s face.
“I got hit again, damn it!”
He couldn’t even count how many times he’d been hit.
Now, he couldn’t feel the pain on his face anymore.
Ryu Min’s movements were so clean and efficient that it seemed like his previous display of skill was just a fake.
Taegyu tried a hook.
But Ryu Min dodged it and jammed his fist into Taegyu’s chin.
For a moment, Taegyu’s vision went blurry as he saw Ryu Min’s fist coming at him again.
As much as he didn’t want to admit it, attacking alone wouldn’t solve anything.
He instinctively lifted his hand to block, but…
Instead of hitting his guard, Ryu Min grabbed his outstretched fingers.
Taegyu screamed in agony as Ryu Min grotesquely broke his fingers.
But as he leaned forward, Ryu Min’s knee hit him in the face.
Before he knew it, Ryu Min had grabbed Taegyu’s other fingers.
“Ahhhh! It hurts! It hurts!”
“Stop it! Please! I beg you!”
But Ryu Min mercilessly twisted all ten of Taegyu’s fingers like they were chicken wings.
Ryu Min spoke again in a chilling tone.
“If you touch my little brother, you’ll regret it.”
“Don’t you have anything to say?”
“Y-yes, I-I got it. I won’t… won’t touch him.”
Now, with tears streaming down his face, Bae Taegyu weakly nodded his head. But then-
Ryu Min grabbed onto one of Bae Taegyu’s arms, clearly not intending to let things end like this.
“What are you planning to do…?” Bae Taegyu protested.
“I need to make sure you won’t change your mind later on,” Ryu Min replied sternly.
“Please… don’t do this! Please!” Bae Taegyu begged, struggling to free himself from Ryu Min’s grip.
Despite Bae Taegyu’s resistance, Ryu Min twisted his arm in a grotesque direction with a sharp snap.
“Aaahhh!” Bae Taegyu screamed in agony.
“If you try to seek revenge or report me to the police, I’ll find you no matter where you hide,” Ryu Min threatened, his voice dripping with malice. “And it won’t just be a broken arm, too.”
At that moment, a deep-seated fear took hold of Bae Taegyu’s mind for the very first time in his life
