"I..just wanted to meet Grandpa again."

Han Gun-Woo, known as Dark in Lucid Adventure, is one of the deuteragonists in Season 1 and the main protagonist of Season 2. He is the King of Dark Land and the current Rank no.3 in the Lucid Ball Ranking System. Dark is the grandson of the former chairman of Giga, Han Gun-Jae. He was a member of Hardcore Leveling Warrior's Party, as well as his employer. He is the boss of the powerful NPC, Heart Heater and his assistant Rim.

His main goal was to get stronger in order to find his grandfather inside the Lucid Adventure. After going through many trials and tribulations with his party, he won the last ever Combat Tournament and reunited with his grandfather one last time before he passed away.

As a reward for winning the Combat Tournament, Dark acquired the Royal Seal which allowed him to become the King of Dark Land. Dark jumped into the new ranked system after learning Lazie's Deadly Move, where he suffered only one loss out of hundreds of matches. Two years later, he rose to become the 3rd strongest player in the game.

Han Gun-Woo joined Lucid High and is a freshman in Class four alongside Yeo Bong-Sun, Werewolf and Min.

Personality

Despite coming from a chaebol family, Carter Han has had a fairly tough time growing up. Despite having what would be considered an extraordinarily privileged background, Carter Han had a fairly lonely and isolated childhood. He had no friends growing up and was shunned by all his family members except for his grandfather who loved him very much.

Due to the constant attacks by his family, Carter Han became a very cautious person and does not trust people easily.

Two years later, Carter Han has been fighting in the real world constantly which made him much tougher. He far more confident in his ability and looks forward to facing difficult challenges ahead.[1] He acts cold and aloof which led to him being called a Tsundere by Wolf, acting cold on the outside but in fact caring about others.[2] He worries about his friends safety and puts himself in front of danger in order to protect them. He feels guilt for his weakness that he believes took away all that was precious to him ( Helen, Roy Han, and Hardcore Leveling Warrior), so he desire to atone for these sins by getting stronger and getting revenge onto giga

During season 1, Carter Han was very insecure about his height and did not like it when people made comments about it. This is no longer the case as he had a massive growth spurt in both the real world and the game.

Notes & Trivia

  • Dark made his début in Episode 3 but his name was actually revealed by Sora in Episode 4. His real name, "Han Gun-woo" (Korean: 한건우) (Line Webtoon: Carter Han), was revealed in Episode 11 by Light.
  • Hardcore Leveling Warrior's nickname for him is "Middle Schooler" (중딩, jungding).
  • Dark shares a birthday with the Beamos.[3] It has not been revealed if there is any significance to this.
  • Dark has been fighting everyday in the real world which made him stronger. He says,"Those guys won't quit, I left the house but that wasn't enough for them. I think they are trying to break me completely". The house may be referring to his old flat and "they" could possibly be Giga. For now, this is just speculation.
  • As implied by Sam Han and confirmed by James Han, Dark is actually not the son of James Han as James' wife never got pregnant and instead went abroad to live quietly. This implies that Dark may be the son of Roy Han which explains why he is the son of God. This would mean that he has a right to be his grandfather's successor and since hes the youngest, he could live longer than the older candidates, which is possibly why Giga wants him dead.
  • The Paralysis Sword is the first ever weapon Dark wielded in the series.[4]
  • Lazie was the first person Dark ever hit in the face. He did not feel good about doing it.[5]
  • Dark's change of hairstyle is somewhat symbolic. He no longer has the "horns" that all the Han characters have in Lucid Adventure. This symbolizes his complete separation from them after his Grandfather's death. In the story, the reason that Dark no longer has the horns is because he was ridiculed for having them after being defeated by Stone.
  • Dark was seen with a Black Magic Spell Book in a pouch strapped to his back at the start of season 2.[6] The difference in color leads some to believe that the book is actually Dark's own creation, and not Darkist's book that he obtained from the Godcha.
