Taek was the Grand General of Yopi Land and one of Yopi's confidantes. He was widely known throughout Lucid Adventure for his abilities in combat as well as his brash attitude.

He was part of Team Yopi Land that competed in the Combat Tournament. They were eliminated by Team Dark during the PvP Round.

About a year into the 2 year timeskip, Taek was involved in a fatal car accident on a rainy day. Unfortunately, Taek died. There many suspicious circumstances that surrounded his death. The connection to Taek was cut off all of a sudden and he couldn't be reached for quite some time. The accident also occurred in a neighbourhood that Taek would not normally go to.[1]

Personality

Taek is shown to be rash and usually prefers to use brute force to solve problems rather than using strategy like when he killed all the assassins sent to Yopi Land instead of leaving one for interrogation[2], which can frustrate his teammates.

Like Yopi, Taek cares deeply for the NPC and is willing to put himself in harms way to protect them.[3] He also tried attack Giga's Diplomatic Ambassadors for attacking Yopi Land's citizens even at the risk of war.[3]

He cares for his teammates and is willing to stay and fight with them rather than flee even when the odds are completely against him.

Translation Issues

'택' is translated as Tac by Line Webtoon. It is romanized as 'Taek' by Koreans and this wiki will be using the proper version.

Take's Yopi Land title, 대장군, is simply translated as Commander by Line Webtoon. 대장군 is the hangul for the hanja '大將軍' which means 'Grand General'/'Supreme General'/'Commander in Chief'. '大將軍' is an official position which came into being during the Warring States Period, and reached the zenith of its influence during the Han dynasty. At first, the person in this position was the supreme military commander (modern equivalent ~ Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff). During the later half of the Han dynasty, he also took over the day to day executive affairs of government (modern equivalent ~ Hideki Tojo). During the Three Kingdoms period, the position again became military-related (modern equivalent ~ United States Secretary of Defense).

'大將軍' in the Japanese historical kana たいしやうぐん and means:

  1. (military, historical) a commander in chiefespecially:
    1. under the 律令 (Ritsuryō) system, a commander of three lesser 将軍 (shōgun) each commanding 3000 soldiers [from Asuka to Nara period]
    2. a commander of an expeditionary force with the task of subduing rebels against the imperial court or barbarians [from Nara to Heian period]
    3. a commanding officer of the imperial court leading a group of samurai from relating or dependent families [since the end of the Heian period]
    4. a shogun [since the Kamakura period]
  2. the head of a samurai family or other warrior class
  3. the leader of a faction, cabal, or other group of conspirators
  4. (cosmology) in Onmyodo, one of the eight gods of the 暦 (koyomi, “almanac”)

This wiki will be going with the original Chinese version of Grand General.

Notes & Trivia

  • Taek's design and personality are based on Kim Gu, the main character of the Naver Webtoon series, 'The Head' (Korean: 대가리, Romaja: daegali) (also known as 'The Boss').
  • His name is Taek (Hangul: 택) but Webtoon have translated it as Tac. it is based on the name of the author of the 'The Head', 'Jeong Jong-Taek' (Hangul: 정종택)
  • A tracing incident occurred that involved 'The Head' and a popular fighting series known as 'Chan' (Hangul: 짱). It was discovered that a few fighting sequences from 'Chan' were plagiarized by the author of 'The Head'.
    • On March 13 2019, Jeong Jong-Taek corrected the plagiarized fighting sequence and issued an apology.
    • On March 15 2019, Naver pulled all the previews of 'The Head' from it's website with an apology for the incident and eventually removed 'The Head' from it's website permanently.
    • Although Kim Sehoon, the author of the Hardcore Leveling Warrior series, has not explicitly mentioned the connection between The Great General Taek and 'The Head' webtoon, the situation is very obvious. General Taek is a character with the of "cartoon character Type" personal attribute, and his signature attack is the "Justice Righteousness Implement Realization Crush". This skill name is a technique used by Kim Gu in 'The Head'. Taek has not appeared in the Hardcore Leveling Warrior series since the incident and will most likely not appear in future Episodes.
    • In response to the incident, Naver Webtoon's said: "The character is not a motif of The Head's 'Kim Gu', but rather a character that uses a skill reminiscent of Kim Gu" Naver continued: "It is not without the influence of The Head, but it is hard to say for sure whether or not he will appear in future. The development of the story and the appearance of the character depend entirely on the artist. "
    • Eventually, Taek was killed off by Kim Sehoon and will no longer appear in the series.
    • It must be noted that Tracing without permission is a very serious issue in South Korea and Naver did not want their reputation damaged.
