It was okay until he drank it. But the terrible taste that choked him even made Hu Bong almost pass out. It was a taste that even Yeowun almost vomited when he drank it, so it was natural.
Hu Bong looked like he was in so much pain that he even had sticky-looking bubbles over his mouth.
'Do I really need to drink this?'
'He looks like he'll die.'a
And with Hu Bong's first try of the liquid, every member became more hesitant. It was only after when they saw Hu Bong wake up after having all of his toxic elements being extracted out of his skin and increased flow of his energy that people started drinking it.
[Prince, I'm really, really thankful, but I'll pass on this.]
[Master, I don't think I can ugh.]
Mun Ku and Hou Sangwha refused to drink as they got sick from various parts of the liquid. Everyone who drank the black liquid had fallen from the terrifying taste, that it was natural for anyone to refuse to drink it.
[Prince, I can't do it. You know that!]
