You guys all have 'Lucid Adventure' accounts right? Login tonight! I will write my will in there
 ― Han Gun-Jae[source]


Han Gun-Jae was the President of Giga Group[9][10][1] and The Creator[2] of Lucid Adventure. He was the father of Han Sung-Gong, Han Sung-Joo and Han Sung-Hyun as well as the paternal grandfather of Han Gun-Ho, Han Soo-Ah, Han Gun-Soo and Han Gun-Woo.

After creating Lucid Adventure, Han Gun-Jae became The Absolute God of the game.[4] His divine character came to be known as Sword Master.[13] To help him enjoy the world of Lucid Adventure, Han Gun-Jae split his soul into 2 other characters, Alpaca Man[14] and Novelist Han.[15]

In the real world, Han Gun-Jae contracted an unknown chronic illness. He gathered his family in the hospital telling them to log into Lucid Adventure as he will be leaving his will online. Soon after that, he fell into a coma, but his consciousness remained online in Lucid Adventure.[9] In the game, he was constantly chased by the Giga, who were trying to capture him in order to control Lucid Adventure completely.[10][16][17]

After finally meeting Han Sung-Gong in the game, Han Gun-Jae's 2 other avatars were reabsorbed into his Sword Master form as he attempted to remove his son from the game.[17] Unfortunately, he was defeated by his eldest son. After engaging Han Sung-Gong in Lucid Adventure, the rest of his power was used up and he he was forced to log-out and his life is was hanging on by a thread.[17][18] He remained in The Subconscious World and aided Hardcore Leveling Warrior in returning Lucid Adventure after he was killed by the Contractor.[19]

After the conclusion of the Martial Arts Combat Round, he used the last bit of his power to see Han Gun-Woo in Lucid Adventure, encouraging him one final time before finally passing away.[20]

Upon his death, Han Gun-Jae's will was broadcast over all of South Korea and it stated that whoever reached the end of the game will inherit the position of Giga President . This lead to multiple people vying for control of the game.[6][21]

Appearance

Main article: Han Gun-Jae/Gallery

In the real world, Han Gun-Jae was an elderly man with grey hair. He often had stern business-like expression on his face. Han Gun-Jae almost always wore a suit and tie together with a long-sleeved buttoned shirt. After he was hospitalised, he wore the standard hospital gown.

As Sword Master, Han Gun-Jae has fair skin and long white hair. He has hair forms two little horns at the top of his head, two large hair strands that reach his neck on either side of his forehead and a long ponytail. In addition, he has black eyes and a curved face.

Alpaca Man's most distinctive feature was his head, which is stylized to look like his namesake. His body is covered in brown Alpaca wool. Having large broad shoulders and large arms, Alpaca Man was abundant in both height and width.

Novelist Han bore the most similar appearance to Han Gun-Jae's real world appearance. He had grey hair and visible wrinkles. He wore large circular sunglasses with a yellow bridge and temple as well as grey tinted lens.

Personality

As the former Giga President , Han family patriarch, creator of Lucid Adventure and richest man in South Korea, Han Gun-Jae has an almost god-like prestige. In both real life and the game, he is respected and revered by all in South Korea and was seen as a celebrity. The Witch called him the "most influential person in the country".[22]

Han Gun-Jae was very serious, intense and has a strong personality. Han Gun-Jae is extremely blunt and very vocal about his ideas and opinions. He does not hold back, even when speaking to family or even Hardcore Leveling Warrior. He is honest and firm with his students as seen when he was training Sora.

He is very stubborn, a trait he passed on to his grandson, Han Gun-Woo. He will go through with an idea no matter how much push-back he gets, as seen when he developed Lucid Adventure, despite his family's opposition.

Despite his reputation and responsibilities, Han Gun-Jae cares deeply for his family and was devastated when Han Sung-Hyun died.

He has a childish side that is reserved for Han Gun-Woo and his former disciple Sora. He is tender, sympathetic and displays a humorous side with his grandson and Sora that he does not share with others. He is appears to love video games and enjoyed playing them with the young Gun-Woo and also split himself into Alpaca Man and Novelist Han to further enjoy Lucid Adventure. He appeared to be interested in writing as he was writing a novel called "Lucid Adventure" based on the game he created.

Notes & Trivia

  • Han Gun-Jae's game name, Sword Master was mentioned by Dark in Episode 19 but his real name was revealed in Episode 21. Han Gun-Jae was first seen in a flashback in Episode 6 and his Sword Master silhouette was first seen in Episode 6. The Corrupted Spirit of Grasses materialised a strong enemy that took on Sword Master's appearance in Episode 19. His first true appearance as 'Sword Master' in the series was in Episode 21.
  • He is the only player that has been seen with the ability to use multiple characters at the same time in Lucid Adventure.
  • Han Gun-Jae splitting himself into three pays homage to the Christian doctrine of the Holy Trinity, where there is only one God in three hypostases: while distinct in their relations with each other, they are stated to be one in all else, co-equal, co-eternal and consubstantial, and each is God, whole and entire.
  • It is implied but not specifically stated that the poison that Zero tried spreading through Han Gun-Jae's avatar in Lucid Adventure is the cause of his illness in the real world and the reason why using his ultimate skills takes such a toll on his avatar.
  • Fans have compared Han Gun-Jae's motivations and will to several other characters from various novels, mangas and films.
    • Yoo Byung Jun from the Korean light novel series, The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor. He is the owner of Unicorn Corporation and Creator of the popular VRMMORPG, Royal Road. He is (secretly) in search of an heir. The main attraction of the Royal Road is the reward that the first player to unite all the continents under one banner and become Emperor will gain. The prize money for achieving this goal is 10% of the Unicorn Corporation's sales for one month. In reality, Yoo Byung Jun has ordered Goddess Versailles to transfer the winner all of his shares, wealth and technology (this includes genetic manipulation of the winner), making him the strongest entity in the world.
    • James Halliday from the science fiction novel and movie, Ready Player One. He was the creator of OASIS, a massive online simulation used by billions of people in the story's dystopian future setting. When the story begins, the late Halliday has just willed a major prize to whosoever finds a unique, hidden easter egg in his VR realm, the OASIS. The terms of the will would give the finder his half-trillion-dollar fortune, along with administrative control over the OASIS itself.
    • Gol D. Roger from the popular pirate adventure manga and anime, One Piece. He was a legendary pirate who held the title of "Pirate King" and owned the legendary treasure known as "One Piece". Just as he was about to be executed by the World Government to discourage piracy, his last words had the opposite impact. He stated that anyone who can find his treasure can claim it. As such, this made Roger single-handedly responsible for starting the Golden Age of Pirates.
  • The author revealed that Han Gun-Jae's birthday is March 08.[12] This may be the same date he gave Han Gun-Woo (Dark) the Lucid Adventure App.[1] It is possible that is possible that it was not his birthday, but a later date as Han Gun-Woo said that the gift was "late" and none of the family members wished Han Gun-Jae a happy birthday earlier in Episode 75.
  • Han Gun-Jae appears to be left-handed, at least when it comes to writing. In both Episode 151 and Season 2 Episode 108, he was seen writing his Lucid Adventure story with his left hand.
