After quite some time, Chun Jongsum began to regret using the poison on Bakgi.
'Damn that poison!'
Chun Jongsum had learned about the poison because of a certain visitor at his home when he was very young. A middle-aged woman who hid her face with a red veil contacted his mother, Lady Baek. Chun Jongsum overheard their conversation while he was studying herbs.
'How long will it take to see the result?'
'Possibly a year.'
'Good. Is there any way for one to notice it if they don't have internal energy?'
'There is no way. Someone with sixty years worth of internal energy can burn the poison from the body while meditating, but without it there is no way.'
'Good. I will trust your words then.'
'So where are you going to use the poison?'
'I don't know. What do you think?'
