Mak SapyeongEdit

Having frustratedly chased after Mak Sapyeong, he contently revealed his "present" to Jin Garyeong: her mother, infected by his Gu worms! Seeing her daughter, she tried to retain control of her body causing the Gu inhabiting her body to prepare to self-destruct and her nose to begin dripping blood. With Sapyeong vocally explaining what would happen if she tried to resist his 'order', she told her daughter it had all resulted for her desire to regain the strength of her youth before relinquishing control and attacking Garyeong. With her daughter merely defending her attacks, she warned Garyeong that indecision would get her killed. They continued fighting until Garyeong paralysed her with a double palmstrike. With the Gu reasoning that she was about to die, Garyeong looked at her frantically until Gha Woobok arrived and removed the Gu from her body using the Life Drain Technique. Quickly transplanting the soon-to-detonate worms into a nearby tree, they looked on in shock as the Gu worms deactivated.

She was later seen being treated for her injuries with Garyeong and Woobok watching over her. She soon recovered much to Garyeong's relief.

At some point later, she departed from the Baekma Valley again, thanking Dang Gan for taking care of her tomboyish daughter.

Powers & AbilitiesEdit

As the former Martial Empress of the murim, Garyeong's mother boasts incredibly fearsome power, being able to seriously pressure her daughter in battle despite her implied waning strength;[2] their fight was likened to two dragons fighting by Mak Sapyeong.[2] She skilfully wields bladed weapons and can launch devastating slash attacks.


  • (To Jin Garyeong while infected by the Gu) "Everything... was caused by my foolish, greedy desire to regain the strength of my youth..., don't think of me as your mother. Right now, I'm only an enemy who is after your life!"[2]

Notes & TriviaEdit

  • Her father is one of the legendary Twelve Supreme Masters of the old murim, Goo Hwi.
