“You have to make tough decisions to do great things”
― Han Sung-Gong
Han Sung-Gong is a cold, calculating and intelligent man with an experienced and cunning air about him. He has a good eye for noticing other person's useful qualities and manipulating them to benefit himself. He is extremely driven, seeking to gain more power in both the real world as well as Lucid Adventure, using the 'Project Linkage' (Korean: 연결 프로젝트) in order to control the real world through Lucid Adventure. Han Sung-Gong is willing to eliminate those who are not committed to his cause and he has no moral compunctions in how he deals with anyone he perceives to be a threat to his goals, including his own family members.
Despite being a competent and bright leader, Han Sung-Gong is extremely stubborn and believes he can have everything his own way. His single mindedness and self belief leaves him open to being manipulated by people such as Zero.
Han Sung-Gong appears to be a smoker. 5 years ago he was seen smoking a cigarette with his brother, Han Sung-Hyun. It is unknown if he still does it.
While he wishes for the inheritance and all Lucid Adventure can grant him, he does not take the game or its fights seriously. He feels more comfortable giving orders rather than fighting.
Han Gun-Jae was Han Sung-Gong's father and the person who he wanted to surpass. He yearns for his fathers position and his very desire to overtake him is the reason he acquired his personal attribute. Han Sung-Gong and Han Gun-Jae appeared to have a cold business like relationship. He referred to his father as 'President' rather than 'father' whilst conversating was further proof of their distant relationship. Han Sung-Gong believed that his father was extremely stubborn, a trait he ironically shares with him. He was completely against his fathers massive investment into the 'game development project', rationally believing that the idea of playing a game in your dream was unrealistic and the review of the report by his guys and experts confirmed his stance. This led him to believe his father was crazy.
At first he thought that Lucid Adventure was nothing more than an old mans joke, but came to see the worth of the game. Just before he fell into a coma, Han Gun-Jae put Han Sung-Gong in charge of Giga and charged him with suppressing Nightmare. Instead, both he and Giga have become the Nightmare themselves.
He believed that he was fulfilling Han Gun-Jae's will by using Lucid Adventure to rule over the real world and achieving true power, despite Han Gun-Jae telling him that it was the complete opposite of his will. He constantly chased Han Gun-Jae in Lucid Adventure and even risked war with Yopi Land in order to capture him, believeing that if he defetaed his father he would gain the power over the game.
It is unknown what kind of relationship they had, but Han Sung-Gong believed that his mother would have disagreed with Han Gun-Jae's game development project.
Han Sung-Joo is Han Sung-Gong's younger sister. During Han Sung-Hyun's funeral, they seemed to be on good terms. Han Sung-Gong lied that Han Sung-Hyun was suffering from depression and tried to kill both himself and Gun-Woo. Just like him, she was shocked that Gun-Woo was alive after the truck fell off the cliff and completely burned.
The exact nature of their relationship has never been revealed, but it seems like they do not get along. When Han Sung-Gong is discussing getting rid of Han Gun-Woo, he says "we can't trust the second one either".
Han Sung-Gong and Han Sung-Hyun did not seem close but they appeared to have a cordial relationship. Han Sung-Gong believed that Han Sung-Hyun never did anything useful and caused trouble. He correctly deduced that Han Gun-Woo was not Han Sung-Hyun's son, but in fact their own brother based on his mother giving Sung-Hyuna position in the company.
He used his brothers insecurity and need for recognition to manipulate him into killing Gun-Woo. He did not seem that concerned after his brother died and he told Han Sung-Joo that Sung-Hyunwas suffering from depression and was trying kill himself and Gun-Woo. He used his influence to manipulate the media into believing it was an accident.
Han Gun-Ho is the oldest son and oldest child of Han Sung-Gong. The nature of their relationship is unknown but Han Gun-Ho is most likely trying to gain his recognition like his siblings, Sua and Gun-Soo.
Han Soo-Ah is the oldest daughter and second child of Han Sung-Gong. The exact nature of their relationship is unknown but Han Soo-Ah wanted to win The Combat Tournament with her team in order to gain his recognition.
Han Gun-Soo is the second son and the youngest child of Han Sung-Gong. Like the rest of his children, Han Gun-Soo is constantly trying to gain his recognition. Han Sung-Gong recognised his sons talent by naming him the Vice-President of Giga Group. he also warned his son not to engage with The Gods in Lucid Adventure. He encouraged him to do his best in the PvP Round and offered to provide him with anything he needed.
“You sound more and more like your old man. Even his stubbornness...”
― Han Sung-Gong
Han Gun-Woo is believed to be Han Sung-Gong's nephew. In reality, he is Han Sung-Gong's youngest brother. Despite Han Gun-Woo being his family, Han Sung-Gong treats him with disdain. He deduced that Han Gun-Woo was not his nephew, but in fact his brother. This led to him seeing Han Gun-Woo as a hurdle in his future goals of controlling Giga. He manipulated Han Sung-Hyun into an attempted murder of Han Gun-Woo in one of Giga's meat packing factories but it failed. He was suspicious of Han Gun-Woo's survival and suspected there was magic involved. According to Han Gun-Soo, it was Han Sung-Gong that banned Dark from Lucid Adventure. After Han Gun-Jae fell into a coma, every time Dark logged into Lucid Adventure, he was killed because of his closeness to Han Gun-Jae most likely under the orders of Han Sung-Gong.
At some point in the past, he sent Han Gun-Woo some food which hospitalized him for a while. After Han Gun-Woo got into the Siege Round, Han Sung-Gong sent some food to 'congratulate' him which was rejected.
After Han Gun-Jae's death, Han Sung-Gong promised to provide for him if he quit the game and did not get involved with becoming the next Giga CEO. Han Gun-Woo refused which led to his eviction from Giga Group Mansion and his bank account drained to zero. This left Gun-Woo both homeless and penniless. Han Sung-Gong cited that Gun-Woo was becoming more like his "old man", which Han Gun-Woo still believes is his grandfather.
Guan Yu seems to get into trouble regularly with Han Sung-Gong. Han Sung-Gong warned Guan Yu to stop getting into trouble, a warning which he ignored. It seems like Han Sung-Gong put a penalty on Guan Yu that prevents him from using his skills.
Zhuge Kongming is a member of the Giga Empire. He seems to be at least close enough to Han Sung-Gong to personally use his mana to create Giga Magic Soldiers. After Yopy interfered with Han Sung-Gong's attempted execution of Sword Master, Han Sung-Gong told Zhuge Kongming he was "useless" which prompted a hilarious reaction from Zhuge Kongming.
Han Sung-Gong was wary of the Gods as he told Han Gun-Soo to not engage them.
“Oh, you mean Zero? it's just an artificial intelligence”
― Sam Han
Han Sung-Gong first met Zero during his character creation in Lucid Adventure. Zero told him about the nature of the Lucid Adventure and could see through his soul that he was after his fathers position. She granted him his personal attribute, Oedipus, which gave him the ability to kill his father. At first, Han Sung-Gong though his father was being mischievous through Zeros words as it was different from the manual. Zero sent him diamonds in the real world which proved that Lucid Adventure was real. He logged into Lucid Adventure again to meet Zero and on his second visit, she gave him substances that did not exist on earth. It is through his interaction with Zero that he realised he could use the power of the real world to rule the real world.
Han Sung-Gong and Giga got a hold of Zero's head and had it analysed in order to use Nightmare. He believed that he was the only one that could control Zero and did not realise that she was pretending and he was the one that was in fact being manipulated.
“I guess things didn't go your way”
― God of Blessings
God of Blessings and Han Sung-Gong appeared to have met at some point in the past. When The God of Blessings showed up after being summoned by Han Gun-Jae, Han Sung-Gong appeared nervous while talking to him. It appears that God of Blessings was aware of his plans to take over Lucid Adventure.
Yopi has been a thorn in Giga's side since he joined the game. He has consistently intefered with thier plans. At some point after the war on Nightmare, Han Sung-Gong got his security to bring 'Doo Yeop' to his office, where he tried to stop him bribe him. His bribery attempt was rebuffed by Yopi who informed him that he was aware that the game cannot exist without the players and that is why Giga can never control the game.
They met face to face for the first time in the game when Giga invaded Yopi Land in order to capture Han Gun-Jae. Just as they were about to fight each other, The Gods appeared and stopped them.
As the former Emperor of the Giga Empire, he had absolute authority and full control of the strongest guild in the game.
Due to his specialized personal attribute, he was the only being that was capable of killing The Creator and former Absolute God of Lucid Adventure, Han Gun-Jae, a feat that Zero herself could not achieve. Han Gun-Jae believed that a clash between Han Sung-Gong and Yopi would cause Lucid Adventure to collapse which forced him to directly summon The Gods to prevent their clash. . Despite Han Gun-Jae's belief however, it was shown in his fight with Yopy that he cannot fight nor is he a strong opponent. He relied on his soldiers to fight on his behalf, but he does not seem to have combat experience.
Immense Wealth: As the current President of Giga Group, Han Sung-Gong has access to a vast sums of money. His father, Han Gun-Jae, was the richest man in Korea before his death so it can be assumed Sung-Gong himself is extremely wealthy in his own right.
Leadership: As noted by even Han Gun-Jae, Han Sung-Gong is a competent and bright leader.
- Main Article: Oedipus
Due to his personality, Han Sung-Gong was granted this personal attribute, Oedipus, directly by Zero during his character creation. It is based on the mythical Greek king who tragically killed his father and brought disaster to his family and friends. Oedipus gives Han Sung-Gong the ability to kill Han Gun-Jae, The Creator and Absolute God of Lucid Adventure. It is a personal attribute attribute customised just for Han Gun-Jae.
- Divine Power Negation :: Han Sung-Gong is able to nullify Sword Master's abilities and skills. Han Sung-Gong was able to nullify Sword Master's Lacerate x100 which destroyed multiple GF-999 and prevent it from damaging his own air carrier. He was able to move through Sword Master's time stop and block an attack from Sword Master that was powerful enough to permanently delete a players character from the game with his bare hands completely unharmed. Zhuge Kongming was able to modify Giga's magic soldiers with Han Sung-Gong's mana flow which allowed them to seal Han Gun-Jae.
- Blue Lightning Spell: Han Sung-Gong was able to fire a blue lightning spell that was capable of inflicting heavy damage and paralysis on Sword Master. It is unknown if this blue lightning has the same effect on other characters or if it is only effective against Sword Master.
- Divine Slayer: Han Sung-Gong is able to use skills that can kill' 'Han Gun-Jae and delete his existence from the game. It is unclear if these skills can be used on other characters.
- Creator Sealing Magic Circle: Multiple Giga Wizards that have been modified based on Han Sung-Gong's Mana by Zhuge Kongming surround the Han Gun-Jae and seal his movement. It seems to be a preliminary skill to summon the Destiny Sword of Unavoidabilty described below.
3 years ago, Han Sung-Gong was in Giga Group Mansion having dinner with Han Gun-Jae, Han Sung-Hyun, his wife, Han Gun-Soo and Han Gun-Woo. After the dinner, he asked Gun-Soo and Gun-Woo to leave so he could discuss business with Han Gun-Jae. He expressed his doubts about Han Gun-Jae's game development and is supported by Han Sung-Hyun. Han Gun-Jae disagrees with him and tells him that the game will be the future of Giga.
Outside Giga Group Mansion, both he and his brother are having a smoke whilst discussing the current situation. He reveals that he knew that Han Gun-Woo was not Han Sung-Hyun's son and is in fact their brother. He tells Sung-Hyunto get rid of him as he could be a hurdle in the future.
After Han Sung-Hyun's death, Han Sung-Gong and Han Sung-Joo are both present at his funeral memorial. He tells Sung-Joo that Sung-Hyun was suffering from depression and tried to kill both himself and Gun-Woo. He says that the media will present it as an accident. He showed suspicion with regards to Han Gun-Woo's survival of the car crash accident that killed James.
On creating his character in Lucid Adventure, Zero came and told him she could see his thirst for his father's power. She granted him the personal attribute Oedipus, which gave him the ability to kill Han Gun-Jae in Lucid Adventure. At first Han Sung-Gong thought the whole thing was a joke as that was not what was written in he manual, but Zero sent him a diamond through the Lucid Adventure that was real. On his next visit she gave him substances that did not exist on earth.
Han Gun-Jae's Will
Han Sung-Gong was present when Han Gun-Jae gathered his family one last time. Before he fell into a coma, Han Gun-Jae told them to log into Lucid Adventure as he will make his will online.
Meeting Player 'Yopi'
At some point after The Very First War, Han Sung-Gong got his security to bring Doo Yeop (Yopi) into his office. He offered him money to stop him from ruining Gigas plans but he was rejected.
During Giga's invasion of Yopi Land, Han Sung-Gong could be seen watching Han Gun-Jae from his plane. Han Sung-Gong got out of his GF-999 to confront his father. Han Gun-Jae united with his two other forms in an attempt to delete Sung-Gong from the game but he was stopped and paralysed by Sung-Gong's lightning like spell.
Sung-Gong planned to propse a project that connected the game to the real world in order to rule it. Just as Sung-Gong was about to kill his father, his sealing circle was broken by Tac and an all out war occured between Giga and Yopi Land. Han Sung-Gong is confronted by Yopi, who wants to defeat him and become the "King" of Lucid Adventure. As Han Sung-Gong and Yopi were about to engage each other, The Gods intervened and stopped their fight.
He was eventually returned to the Giga Empire when one of the Gods of Time and Space used Divine Mass Teleport to send everyone back to their residence. Han Sung-Gong appeared in his office in Giga Game Headquarters, offering to provide Han Gun-Soo with anything he needs to win the tournament.
Han Sung-Gong was amongst the members of the family that attended his father's funeral. After the funeral, he told Han Gun-Woo to stop playing Lucid Adventure and he will be provided for. Han Gun-Woo rejected the offer as Lucid Adventure was the only thing that his grandfather left him. He then gets Han Gun-Woo evicted from Giga Group Mansion and has his bank accounts completely drained.
- (To Han Gin-Jae): "To make the creator of this world kneel before you, take everything from him, and became the new God...I Won Father!".
