Eunwon (은원 Eun-won) was the servant of Lee Bairong while he was a prince. He was a member of the former Three Noble Families, the Silver Clan.


Eunwon is a young man with long dark hair that is either tied up in a pony tail or grabbed in a bundle. He is shown in two outfits, his formal ruqun robe and his combat clothes.


Eunwon is extremely devoted to Lee Bairong, going as far as treason in order to make Lee emperor. Although intelligent, he is manipulated easily by people of higher positions than him.



Four years before the main story line, Eunwon was the servant of Lee Bairong, one of the three princes of the Bairong Empire. He supported Lee in order to make him emperor, but when the Yue Bairong of that time was chosen, he conspired against him after some words of encouragement from Emperor Bairong.

After Yue fought off Jang-Chun, Eunwon threw his sword through Jang-Chun's chest, killing him instantly. He reveals his plan to Xing, slashing him across his abdomen, giving him his scar. Lee stops Eunwon from continuing to attack Yue, stating he will be the one to kill him. Emperor Bairong reveals himself, stopping everybody in their tracks. He reveals how he manipulated Eunwon and kills him.

Deception in Bairong ArcEdit

Eunwon appears briefly in a memory Lee had.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Being a noble from one of the highest ranking clans, he is among the strongest within his country, although weaker than people of royalty standards. He is noted to be able to wipe out a group of Night Crows to a certain extent.

Chi Techniques: Eunwon is one of the most skilled non-royal chi user, having mastered Shinbo and Shinchuk and being Lee's trainer.

  • Shinbo (신보 Sinbo; Release): The first stage of Chi control. It draws out a small amount of the user's Chi, and universally taught through the Bairong Empire. Xing has mastered this.
  • Shinchuk (신축 Sinchug; Elasticity): The second stage of Chi control. It draws out a maximum of 30% of the user's Chi, and is taught only to the highly skilled elites of the Bairong Empire.

Expert Hand to Hand Combatant: His skills are among the best of the elite. Being one of the people training a royal prince, not many people are capable of matching his abilities.


Broad Sword: Eunwon is shown to be able to throw this weapon accurately. He is able to handle it well enough to wound Yue deeply, although the attack was supposed to be fatal and Yue was weakened.


Lee BairongEdit

Eunwon devoted his life for Lee. He had full loyalty towards Lee and believed Lee to be the true emperor. He was willing to betray his family to ensure Lee was to become emperor after he wasn't chosen, and Eunwon was one of the people who truely cared and would do anything for Lee.
