* AntiVillain: Hyuk So Chun and Kangsung, among others. One of the things that sets this series apart is how most enemies are not presented as evil, even if they may seem to be at first. Instead, they're just people, [[PunchClockVillain who sometimes have to do unpleasant things in the course of their work]], and if they act like jerks it's more bravado than actual hatefulness.

Shi-Woon didn't even notice those murder attempts and/or didn't associated them with Elder Kwon to the point that even when Jinny told him, he dismissed her words.
