    Not sure if spoilers are allowed in the LCD but here goes.

    I diagree with a few things the review says, but what they're talking about is probably the development of Deculein's relationship with Julie. Julie is the only person who Deculein actually shows any romantic interest in, but starting somewhere around 120, he decides that for her to grow and become stronger, she has to hate him. So he starts a plot with Julie's sister to make her hate him by destroying her knights order, etc. This should continue until she hates him enough to want to kill him, according to Deculein's plans.The interpretation is based on how you look at it. Some people call it tragedic romance, others like the reviewer call it NTR. It kinda sucks as they were getting development slowly, but it feels like it all has to be reverted to an even worse state.

    it started around chapter 94, the main reason is for Julie to be cured. Ducelein's fate is that of a villain and if he wants to live happily he has to get rid of that

    The plot feels like The Novel's Extra again.

    Do you mean this will become just as bad as TNE?

    The part in TNE where the mc had to do it to the brother of one of the female leads and didn't bother to explain it.

    Did we really need another romance like this? Like hot damn, this is up there with amnesia, brainwashing and random depowerment for the sake of plot in the shitty plot device department.

    Ok, is that poor plot development that I see? The only way to is to make her hate him..... is like that scene in Final Space when Gary 'sacrifices' himself to take the pain of Quinn to save her, pretty dramatic, hype 1000, etc etc but when you look at it objectively is just plain drama bait.

    It was always obvious, it’s one of Julie Character trait, Winter flower or something.
    I personally like it but I guess it’s not for everyone. Still hoping they get a good ending.
    It also make me ever more suspicious of Deculein past.

    I support this, I have read till 204 in the raws and
    While it's has a lot of drama, it was well written not like many other. Julie had a timer that she will die if she didn't overcome her injury, and from her traits the only way to save her was this - and it worked to an extent. On the other hand he untill this point never showed any small interest in any other girl, and her family members know about his sacrifice and saw her improve, so they are on his side

    While I don't like to spoil, I just don't want people to drop it because of this. Wait and judge by yourself.

    Agreed completely haha. The key thing here is romantic interests. People say every new char introduced is a romantic interest but that's clearly not the case.

    1. Deculein only loves Julie. He's even moved on from his ex at his company (at least supposedly)

    2. That one review said that both Epherene and Yeriel are harem members as well, come on. There's been nothing hinting at any romantic thing going on whatsoever. The only main romantic interests are really Julie, Sylvia, and possibly Sophien (emperor).

    They really are groupies, so in that sense they are part of his harem.
    Someone already spoiled that the real love interest
    is not Julie but his girlfriend from his life in Korea, she already appeared in the story as one of the orphans under that redhaired adventurer protection.

    Allow me to be highly skeptical.

    It checks tho, the only person in the whole world that can truly understand him is only another person from the same world, and she is even her ex-girlfriend, what did you thought when they would meet?

    It would be disappointing if Deculane chose Yoo-ara(EX-GF). The ex was the one who broke their relationship first and found someone else. Now that MC is a badass it would make it seem like she's a superficial person. And feelings to Julie is influenced by the OG villain Deculan, it's like falling in love based on manipulation. I prefer Sylvia though unlikely to be chosen since he looks at her as only a student.

    The manipulation aspect is a bummer indeed, in part also for that he decided to distance himself from Julie. Ephrene and Sylvia would need to work really hard to even be taken in consideration for a romantic relationship in the eyes of Deculein.
    Only when more chapters will be translated we will know the truth. The spoiler was correct about Sylvia and Deculein's love-hate relationship though.

    Fatty McIgottaEatThatBoar and Ms. "Baby what is love, baby don't hurt me no more" are strictly studentzoned and not even in the running, the best not!sister really just wants headpats and approval, Empress Omoshiroi just finds the dude interesting for obvious reasons and the man doesn't even consider her human because of the whole "future god" business, reallly, the only women he's show actual romantic emotions for are Julie and his ex, as for who he'll actually end up with hell if I know, the writer loves to throw curveballs at people, think Boss winning in TNE as a example. Though it feels weird to use the world "winning" in regards to relationships, especially if the prize is being stuck with Hajin.
