Story[]

The yellow dragon decreed his mother and brother as demons that undermined the kingdom where their defeat was for Yooguk's reign of peace. In present day Korea, Dojin is bringing dinner back for his sister, and niece, Myungjoo but paramedics who arrive at the scene of his accident find that he has stopped breathing. The yellow dragon appears and tells him to come into his arms and Dojin awakens in a location where he is seen as the emperor.[1] Citizens discuss how they hope the yellow dragon dissolves his anger and accepts the new emperor. Rat explains how in this world there are five kingdoms, Yooguk, Seorak, Dongju, Bukro and Namjin. Dojin is currently in Yooguk, which is situated at the center of the continent. The other kingdoms are North, South, East and West of their current location. Each are protected by their respective guardian gods. They in turn select an emperor that helps them protect the kingdom. Rat says that Dojin must do as the yellow dragon commands or he will not make it back to his world alive.

Dojin is taken to the Labyrinth and enters the keep where the yellow dragon resides.[2] Speaking with the person before him Dojin accepts the drink and falls unconscious after finding it sweet. He awakens in a bed where the yellow dragon joins him in person.[3] With Dojin wanting to return to his world the yellow dragon's method to achieve this is for Dojin to become his emperor. Sharing his life force will form a covenant between them.[4]
