How to Live as a Villain Chapter 125 will air this weekend! In the previous chapter, Seonghoon used a dirty trick using poison to defeat the Wisdom guardian and advance through the game.
Although deception and mind games are considered wise, using poison is not an “honorable” way to win for the guard, who angrily chases Seonghoon out despite helping him. pass the next person.
In the upcoming chapter of Manhwa, we will witness Seonghoon’s test with the Guardian of Endurance, who will not be fooled by such petty tricks. The guard has heard about all the things Seonghoon did in the previous test and won’t let him go that easily.
Seonghoon continues his match with the Guardian of Wisdom because he needs to pass the test. He’s lost before and tried to cheat, but the Old Man will see through all his tricks and make sure he doesn’t succeed with any of them.
Exhausted, Seonghoon asked the guard if he could let him pass, but the old man refused, saying that a guard’s duty was not simply to grade tests. They are also responsible for helping players reach their maximum capacity and supporting them with their powers.
The Wisdom Guardian told Seonghoon how clumsily he was approaching the test and that even though he had good stats with the superhuman title, it still wasn’t enough to beat him as he wished. He needed to do better because the old man still had the upper hand.
Seonghoon’s super strength came from a temporary buff, and during that time, he used various tricks to survive after failing the “mission”. As a last ditch effort, Seonghoon challenges the guardian of wisdom to a game of Go.
His only condition is a 10-second interval between moves that must end within 24 hours of the start of the match. Realizing that Seonghoon’s conditions were simple and quite interesting, the old man began to analyze the situation and think of tricks that Seonghoon could use to win the game.
Meanwhile, Seonghoon decided to take a nap. When he woke up, he decided to make bread and tea for himself and the wisdom protector. At this time, the guard thought that Seonghoon had poisoned the tea because this was the first time he offered tea so he refused to drink it.
After eating, Seonghoon and Guardian Wisom started the match. The old man protected the chess board and guarded against Seonghoon’s tricks – just as he had predicted. As the first half ended, Seonghoon warned him not to take the match lightly.
At that moment, Wisdom Protector felt his vision fade and his head became even more dizzy. He then realized that the poison was in the sandwich, not in the tea. In reality, the tea contained the antidote that Seonghoon offered, but using mind games, he convinced the old man that it wasn’t.
The ten second gap between each move was simply to let the poison take effect in the middle of the fight, which worked. The wisdom guardian in rage admitted his defeat and kicked Seonghoon out after giving him a pass.
The next place Seonghoon decided to go was the threshold of Stamina, which he thought was a safer choice than strength and dexterity. He was greeted with disgust by the guard as he was informed of the dirty tricks he used to defeat the old man.
