King The Land Manga Overview
The plot of the manga is ripe with drama due to the major protagonists, Gu Won and Sa-Rang’s operatic lives. The former is an heir to Seoul’s top-rated hotel franchise, The King Hotel, and the latter is an attendant in the same restaurant. When an inheritance battle ensues between Won and his older sister, he has to demonstrate his capabilities as a hotelier but fails to do so. Won, renowned for his rigid attitude and temper, has to seek Sa-Rang’s help to improvise his nonexistent hotel-oriented skills. However, the two have a hard time tolerating each other’s intrusive presence. Their constant bickering becomes a major plot arc, at least for the initial chapters.
As Sa-Rang tries to help Won out, she starts unravelling his layers and discovers a concealed vulnerability to him. But she isn’t alone in her quest either. Won, too, unsnarls the reason behind Sa-Rang’s constant smiles and tries to get a glimpse behind those fake smiles. As Won gets closer to Sa-Rang, he unearths a different shade of her personality, one that isn’t tainted with her endless responsibilities.
King The Land Chapter 18 Plot
While Won oozes the untouchable kind of aura, he battles a raging war with himself. Ever since his mother abandoned him in his early childhood and his family relished in it, Won has become apprehensive of those around him. He faces trouble with trusting anybody, seeks solitude and is wary of everybody, including his own sister. Despite the myriad of issues Won harbours, Sa-Rang cannot help herself but connect with him. However, due to the nature of their relationship and internal convolutions, they try to not pursue their true feelings.
In the previous chapter, Won embarked on a journey to find his mother, whom he distinctly remembers. King The Land Chapter 18 would portray Won’s struggle to discover his mother, who doesn’t want to be found. This upcoming chapter would be sheathed in emotional drama and suspense, it seems.
