Synopsis
High school student Moon Bin Lee has difficulty sleeping due to a recurring nightmare: he's stranded over a thousand years in the past chasing a dark-haired girl into a deep abyss.

Before long, the nightmare overwhelms him, and he is unable to tell whether he is Moon Bin, a Seoul teenager at the end of the second Millennium, or Sa Kyoung Kim, the son of a prominent warrior family in the middle of the first Millennium. People in his present-day life assume roles in his historical life as he struggles to learn exactly who he is and what he's expected to do, straddling a transmigratory portal through time and space.
In the present, his school's kendo club battles to stay in the championships...but in the past, Moon Bin finds himself at the threshold of a territorial dispute on the plains of Mongolia ... (Source: Tokyopop)






I am not usually a historical storyline fan, but I thought this manhwa was an amazingly well done mix of fantasy with a twist of history behind it. It is definitely not your typical manhwa or manga plot.
If you want to read something different, I highly recommend this. The artwork is beautiful, the characters are compelling, and the story keeps you guessing almost until the end as to what the outcome will be.
I do recommend that this is PG13 for gore, and possibly 16+ for some nudity and depictions of rape. (I mean the story is about Mongols, so raping and pillaging was kinda commonplace).

Since this first came out in 1999, I am hoping that quite a few others have read this and would like to give their opinions as well.

One of my favorites. The release for the last couple of volumes took a while though, and I haven't picked them up yet. Somehow it can move from humorous to tragic very quickly and then back again.

I loved this series!!! I am looking to add it to my manga collection. The ending was so sweetly wicked. The finished it up nicely too.
