Trash of the Count’s Family – Chapter 662: I guess I do have to step in? (4)

‘Little brother.’

Basen felt as if Cale’s voice was echoing in his ear like an illusion. His heart thumped wildly as well.

“We need to hurry.”

He snapped out of it after hearing Cale’s comment and started to walk.

Each step felt extremely heavy.

‘The entire kingdom is pretty much at war right now.’

The Henituse Duchy only left a few knights and mages necessary for the defense of the territory and had the rest of the troops gather by the Lord’s Castle.

His mother, Duchess Violan, was gathering the troops as the deputy for his father who was not here; communicating with different territories through the Northeast region and gathering all the troops together.

‘Mother and Viscount Ubarr will head to Puzzle City soon.’

The Henituse Duchy used to be famous for its wealth, but it was also famous for its military strength now.

Then there was Viscount Ubarr who had the navy in her territory.

These two places would become the center that urgently sends troops to Puzzle City.

‘According to what mother told me, the different parts of the Roan Kingdom are all taking care of the intruders before preparing to head over to Puzzle City at his highness’s orders.’

Basen had seen it.

The Knight Captain had sent an image of the monsters through a video communication device.

Just looking at it gave him chills throughout his body.

“Our human’s little bro! What are you doing?”

Basen heard a bright voice at that moment.

“We’re in a rush! Let’s go right away!”


The young black Dragon was tilting his head while looking at him.

‘…A Dragon.’

Basen had seen the gold Dragon that had appeared as their ally to fight against the monsters.

He had been able to see all of this because he was helping by his mother’s side.

“Basen. You lead the way. I have some things to think about so I will follow behind you.”

“Little bro Basen! Let’s hurry!”

Basen wanted to think more about Raon, but he determined that he should follow Cale’s orders because of the current situation.

He stepped forward and started to climb the hill. He could feel Cale walking behind him.

‘I don’t know why hyung-nim suddenly wanted to come here, but I’m glad that there is something I can do with him.’

Basen had such thoughts as he walked forward when he heard Cale’s voice behind him.

“…Where is mother?”

Cale had not stopped by the Estate and had just contacted Basen to meet him at this hill.

Basen could not see Cale since he was in the front, but he slowly started to smile.

‘Hyung-nim has always been like this.’

He seemed disinterested at times and even cold, but…

He was a warm person down inside.

As Cale suddenly sought to go to his biological mother’s grave when the Roan Kingdom was in this dangerous situation… Basen thought that it was very like Cale to cautiously ask about his other mother, Violan, along the way.

“Mother told me to apologize on her behalf for being unable to come to see you because she is busy and asked me to thoroughly observe you to make sure that you do not have any injuries.”

“I see. And Lily?”


Basen gasped.

“…Lily, she says she wants to go to Puzzle City as well and has been…”

He stopped for a moment before continuing.

“She is throwing a tantrum about it right now.”

“Even if we don’t consider her age, aren’t her skills, and more importantly, experiences lacking?”

“…She is skilled enough to easily defeat most of the regular knights in the territory and is almost on par with the higher-level knights.”

“…She is?”

“Yes, hyung-nim.”

“What a genius.”

“She sure is.”

The two siblings stopped talking for a moment, thinking about Lily, who was getting stronger by the day.

“Human! Your second sibling is amazing! She is really strong!”


Cale nodded his head.

‘Should I just let Lily be the territory lord in the future if she wants to do it?’

He felt as if their territory would become the strongest in the Roan Kingdom if she would be the territory lord.

‘Benefiting off Lily while quietly rolling around the house doing nothing…that sounds too sweet.’

As Cale was able to come up with an alternative plan to have a peaceful slacker life in the future…

“Hyung-nim. Umm, may I ask why you are heading to your mother’s grave?”

Cale thought about Duke Deruth after hearing Basen’s cautious question.

‘Father asked me just as cautiously.’

Cale had gone up to Duke Deruth while under Raon’s invisibility spell.



Deruth had been extremely shocked and clutched his head.

‘My goodness! I’m hearing voices now?! I need to focus right now, but why am I so weak?!’


Cale had been anxious for a moment before informing Duke Deruth that he was currently invisible and moving to an empty alley to chat together.

‘Oh, my son! Your face, your complexion-’

Duke Deruth had slowly looked over Cale’s entire body out of concern, but instantly stopped when he heard what Cale had to say.

‘Father, it looks like I will need to head to mother’s resting place for a moment.’

Deruth was silent for a bit before he asked just as cautiously as Basen had just done.

‘Mother left something there.’

‘…It’s not something else like… going up to firm your resolve or something?’

‘…My resolve?’

‘Yes. A resolve for the future or something like that.’

‘…The future?’

Even Cale thought it was not right to share his dreams of being a slacker in the future in front of his biological mother’s grave.

Cale had a blank expression after having that thought and shook his head.

‘No. It is not something like that. I’m just going to get something.’

‘Then I am relieved.’

Duke Deruth had then grabbed Cale’s hands with a much more relaxed expression.

‘Okay. Go do what you have to do.’

Cale had felt that something was odd.

‘I thought Duke Deruth didn’t know that Cale’s biological mother had an ancient power?’

It was odd that Deruth so easily accepted the fact that Cale was going to get something. But Duke Deruth’s next words made it understandable.

‘You remember that we buried your mother’s diary in a box underneath the headstone, right?’

Deruth had carefully patted Cale’s shoulder.

‘Your mother said we must make sure only you see it. She gave it to me in an enchanted box.’

A bitter smile had appeared on Deruth’s face.

‘Your mother, Drew, was a mysterious person, but what I do know is that she loved you very much. There’s probably still nobody in this world who loves you as much as she loved you.’

Drew Thames. Deruth moved his hand away from Cale’s shoulder while thinking about Cale’s biological mother. (TL Note: The phonetic translation would be Juru, but it was similar enough to Drew that I chose Drew as the best English translation).

‘I don’t know why you are going there, but I’m sure you have your reasons. Take your time. Don’t worry about things here.’

He then smiled.

‘I’m truly relieved to see that you are okay. That is all that matters to me.’

Cale felt as if this conversation with Deruth felt different from usual, maybe because it was after his chat with the real Cale.

He calmly responded to Basen, who asked as cautiously as Deruth had done.

“I came to get the diary mother left behind.”

“I, I see!”

Basen responded as if he had not known about it before stopping and moving a few steps to the side.

Cale could see a headstone.

< Drew Thames >

Cale quietly observed the name.

‘I guess I’m kind of ignorant.’

He could have been curious about Cale’s pasts or his family after possessing this body. However, all he had thought about was the information in The Birth of a Hero.

He had not been curious about Cale’s biological mother’s name, appearance, or even her family. He only focused on things he needed to handle things in the present and the future.

‘It’s clean.’

The grave was extremely well-maintained. The graves of the other ancestors were clean as well, but this one gave off the feeling that it was very clean and that someone had recently maintained it.

Was it Duke Deruth who had done it?

Regardless of whom it was, Cale made up his mind that he would be the one to maintain this grave in the future. He thought that this was his duty now that he truly took over Cale Henituse’s body as he started to speak.

“Basen. Will you head down first?”

Basen noticed the deep gaze in Cale’s eyes as he looked at the headstone and urgently nodded his head.

“Yes, hyung-nim! I will head down first! I will wait for you at the bottom of the hill!”

Basen hesitated before adding on.

“A, and please, please call me if you ever, really, if you ever need me for anything!”


Basen felt slightly relieved seeing the smile on Cale’s face and started to walk down.

Cale walked toward the headstone once he could not see Basen any longer.


He crouched down and put his hand on the ground right in front of the headstone.

“I don’t feel anything.”

Every other ancient power Cale had gotten until now had a peculiar and unique feel around them.

The Sound of the Wind had caused whirlpools in the ocean.

The Fire of Destruction had been at the center of lava.

The Indestructible Shield had been looking for food from underneath a tree.

But unlike those other ancient powers, it was just quiet here.

Cale debated for a moment before starting to speak.

“I guess I should find the diary first.”

The diary that Duke Deruth had mentioned… The diary that Cale’s biological mother had left for him… That diary might have information about the remaining half of the ancient power.

“Human! Should I dig?”

“No. This is something I should do.”

He shook his head at Raon’s question and took out a small trowel from his spatial pocket bag.

“Please excuse me.”

He looked at the headstone and the grave behind it and bowed his head.

He then started to dig.

Chh, chh.

It was easy to dig through the ground.

‘That’s odd.’

The ground should be frozen and difficult to dig because of the cold weather, but the ground in front of the headstone was easy to dig as if it was mud.

Cale decided this was the peculiar aspect of an ancient power and started to dig faster.

“…My goodness.”

Raon gasped while looking at the crouching Cale.

“…Our human…is sweating so much after barely even digging. His stamina…is worse than a piece of paper…I really need to imprison him at home for a while……”

Cale ignored Raon’s shocked mumblings and continued to dig.


The trowel hit something hard at that moment and Cale started to dig with his hands.

“It’s a box.’

A small metal box appeared.

It didn’t seem to have any locks on it. Cale looked at the center of the top of the box.

‘Son. If you want to read the diary, you need to put a bit of blood on the magic circle at the center of the box. Only you can open this box.’

Cale took a dagger out and gently stabbed his finger and put the small drop of blood on the magic circle.


There was a small vibration, and the box opened without any issues.

“Human, it’s the diary! But your blood…! Hurry up and put some bandages on it! Should I call the Saint over?!”

“The bleeding has already stopped.”

It was a small prick, so the Vitality of the Heart easily stopped the bleeding.

Cale looked at the box.

The box was full of magic circles on the inside as well.

It seemed to have been a preservation spell as the diary looked used but was still in good condition.


He took a deep breath before picking up the diary.

The real Cale Henituse…. The man who was now Kim Rok Soo in his place had said the following.

‘I think that my mother expected things would end up like this.’

The wood attribute ancient power. The person with the power to see the annual rings of all living beings.

“…Drew Thames.”

Cale read the name on the headstone once more before slowly opening the diary.

He should be able to learn about her past now.


Cale’s face stiffened up as soon as he read the first page of the diary.

< If there is someone reading this diary, I wish to ask them a question. >

This was actually not a diary.

< The person in my son's body, who are you? >

It was a letter written inside a diary.


Cale scoffed in disbelief as he read the diary, no, the letter.

< The cycle of life is a cycle of reincarnation, being born with a new body and new memories. >

< But there are always exceptions. >

Cale couldn’t even scoff anymore.

< Most people do not know about these exceptions. I doubt that anybody outside of my family knows about it. Most people believe these things to be impossible. >

< There are two kinds of exceptions. >

There are people who go against the rule of reincarnating with a new body and new memories.

< The first exception are the single-lifers, people who cannot reincarnate. >

< The second exception are the immortals, who live forever. >

Cale’s jaw dropped.

“…How does she know these things?”

Drew Thames. Who was this woman?

Cale looked at the part where it said ‘my family’ before continuing to read.

But his gaze stopped at one spot.

< But there are actually variables to these two exceptions. >

There were people who were called ‘variables’ and not ‘exceptions.’

< Reincarnators. Transmigrators. >

The White Star. Cale Henituse. Kim Rok Soo.

Those three names echoed in Cale’s mind.

< The final variable are the regressors, those who return to the past. That is known to be impossible, but we were able to figure out that it is definitely an option. However, we could not learn anything else about it. The gods may be the only ones to know the answer behind this variable. >

Cale thought about the real Cale Henituse.

‘I made a deal with the God of Death when I was forty and my soul went into the body of Kim Rok Soo in his mid-thirties. My body then returned to the past to when it was 18 years old and Kim Rok Soo’s soul was moved into it.’

The real Cale Henituse went through a complicated process of transmigrating and returning to the past at the same time.

“What the hell is this?!”

Cale looked at the diary in his hand with disbelief.

This diary that he expected to read without much thought was full of heavy truths.


Cale closed the diary for a moment after reading the next few lines.

< Oh, and one more thing. >

< Single-lifers, immortals... reincarnators and transmigrators. There is a difference between the ‘exceptions’ and the ‘variables.’ >

< That is the reason we are able to distinguish reincarnators and transmigrators from the other two. >

“Human, what is it?”

Raon cautiously asked, but Cale slowly recalled what he had just read.

The reason that ‘exceptions’ and ‘variables’ were different…

< Reincarnators and transmigrators. Unlike the exceptions, these variables always have a soul that is impacted by them. >

< In the case of the reincarnator, the soul that was supposed to get a new body and new memories has its body taken by the reincarnator, making just the new memories float around until it finds a new body somewhere in a different dimension to live on, as a sort of twin. >

< As for transmigrators, a person who has their body taken by a transmigrator must take the body of the transmigrator. >

< The former shouldn't be an issue because they are in a different dimension, but the latter causes significant chaos for a soul that suddenly has its body taken away. >

Following that statement…

< Usually, gods will call single-lifers and immortals to a world when a world is in danger but they are unable to intervene themselves. >

< It is because these people do not impact other souls even if they move to a different dimension. >

Cale started to speak.

“…Choi Han.”

‘No, all three people of the Choi family.’

Choi Jung Gun, Choi Han, and Choi Jung Soo.

They were not immortals. However, Choi Jung Gun and Choi Han, the two who had come to this world, had abnormally long life spans.

There seemed to be only one term to describe them.


Cale urgently opened the diary again.

< My son has the life of a ‘variable.’ >

< He will either be a reincarnator or a transmigrator. >

Cale suddenly thought of someone’s face.

He was thinking about Kim Rok Soo’s face.

There was someone who had an extremely similar face as well.

“…The White Star’s face is similar to Kim Rok Soo’s face, right?”

“That’s right, human! We talked about it last time!”

Choi Han had seen a picture of a maskless White Star in the secret area of Duke Fredo’s bedroom in the Endable Kingdom.

He said that the White Star’s face was extremely similar to Kim Rok Soo’s face.

He recalled what he had just read in the diary once more.

< In the case of the reincarnator, the soul that was supposed to get a new body and new memories has its body taken by the reincarnator, making just the new memories float around until it finds a new body somewhere in a different dimension to live on, as a sort of twin. >

“…As a sort of twin.”

The White Star was a reincarnator.

Cale Henituse was a transmigrator.

Kim Rok Soo came to this world after switching bodies with the transmigrator Cale Henituse.

But that Kim Rok Soo’s face was similar to the White Star’s face.

Cale thought about the life and future that the real Cale Henituse told him about.

“It was ruined.”

Choi Han went up against the White Star, but both the Eastern and Western continents were scorched after almost twenty years of war and many people died or were injured and tired by the long war.

The White Star had attacked Puzzle City and was on the verge of becoming a god.

The White Star of that time probably would have called forth the Lion Dragon and found a way to kill it to open the temple door to either awaken the sealed god or take his powers.

What could the God of Death do as he watched all of this happen?

Based on what Cale had seen until now, it was difficult for gods to personally intervene, so they could only use people or items to somewhat intervene in a situation.

But Choi Jung Soo, the next single-lifer, had rejected a deal.

What else could the God of Death do at that point?

If there were no immortals…if there were no ‘exceptions’…

The gods would choose the variables.

And with the variable options of reincarnators and transmigrators… What if there was a way to take care of both of these at once?

“It’s obvious.”

He didn’t need to think about it any longer.

“That is why I was called here.”

He said his hypothesis, which was pretty much confirmed, out loud.

“I must have been one of the souls that were impacted by the reincarnator, the White Star.”

He looked toward the diary again. There were still things written in the diary, too many truths he still needed to learn.


Someone left this comment in the Korean raws and it breaks it down pretty well so I thought I would translate it for all of you (with some changes as I saw fit to explain things better)

People who live with one body and one set of memories = single-lifers (Choi family)
Immortals >> frequently called to solve problems in different dimensions because they do not impact other souls. (None in TCF) (PR: So far.)
Variables =
Reincarnators (White Star)
Transmigrators (Kim Rok Soo, Cale Henituse)
Regressors (Cale Henituse)
> Reincarnator: Pushes out the soul that is supposed to take a body and is born with the memories of their past life and the soul that is pushed out is born like a twin in a different dimension. The reason the White Star looks like Kim Rok Soo is because he pushed out Kim Rok Soo who was supposed to be in that body.
> Transmigrator: Pushes out a soul that has been living in a body and forces in a different soul; the soul that is pushed out has no choice but to go into the empty body of the invading soul. Basically, it causes chaos to the soul.

To sum it up… Kim Rok Soo was pushed out of his original body by the reincarnating soul of the White Star and ended up being born on Earth and became a transmigrator in Cale Henituse’s body because Choi Jung Soo rejected the request to be the problem solver. Cale Henituse’s soul was forced into Kim Rok Soo’s body, so his soul had no choice but to go into Cale’s body.

The scariest thing is that the real Cale’s mother already knew about all of this…

    1. The great and mighty Young master silver light

      Should I be proud of myself to understand what’s happening without explanation? I mean it’s not that hard you just gotta read it carefully I think
      -after reading my comment I sounded sarcastic and I don’t know how to change that I promise I’m not being sarcastic it just sounded like that but I’m genuinely confused why people why people founded it hard to understand…

      And also poor Kim rok soo soul being push around into different body because of a two Cale’s

    1. M

      What. The. Hell.

      Instead of musical chairs… This is more like musical souls. I don’t know if we will get this scene but I would LOVE to see Alberu and Choi Han’s reaction to all this.

      1. AmA

        Same, I also want Raon, Choi Han and Alberus reaction when they found out that Kim Rok So (Cale) is actually an orphan.

        1. Magic&Myths

          Choi Han at least should already know. Remember, he knows what Choi Jung Soo knew since he saw all of Choi Jung Soo’s memories.

  1. yasemin

    woah HERE MY BRAIN SCREAMS ERROR ERROR ERROR but the explanation was really good thank youu AHHH WHAT WILL WE DO WITH ALL OF THIShdjsjfgj

  2. AmA

    It’s 2:21 a.m and I just finished reading, and I clearly did not take the translators advice (discord) and now I think my brain is dead cause that was a lot of info.

  3. roreinu

    Simply put..
    >KRS’s soul originally belonged in this world
    >his soul got pushed out because WS got reincarnated in that body instead

  4. Bee

    ‘The scariest thing is that the real Cale’s mother already knew about all of this…’

    I agree, Cale’s biological mother’s family is scary, because they know something connected with ‘time’.

  5. Zenni04

    I never knew i would be this early. That is a lot to take in. Now i understand why it happened. It’s rare to see the theory of being isekai-ed in detail at other stories. This one is truly masterpiece~

  6. Oxy__

    Whew it’s 2 A.M and My brain was barely survive after receiving so much information at once. But BTW Thanks for the Chapter

  7. white_miru

    isn’t Kim Rok Soo technically a returnee then? Since he was supposed to be born in TBoaH but got his body stolen and went to Earth only to have his body stolen (again, poor lad) and transmigrated back to where he was supposed to be in?

    Also, I’m really curious as to what Kim Rok Soo’s life was supposed to be like in TBoaH. Did he have any family? If yes, what type of family did he belong to? Did the white star get rid of them? Ahhh, so many questions are answered yet more are asked.

      1. saaaal

        No, he’s not. KRS originally belongs to TBoaH world, but was born on Earth instead because of White Star’s interference. All the original souls of WS’s previous reincarnations travelled to different dimensions and were born there with their bodies looking exactly like their original ones WS took.

        1. Magic&Myths

          That’s not what a returnee, which is the same as a regressor, is. It’s when a person’s soul and body goes back in time to a certain point in their life. Here’s a quote from this chapter that specifically says the original Cale Henituse is a regressor, or returnee.

          Cale thought about the real Cale Henituse.

          ‘I made a deal with the God of Death when I was forty and my soul went into the body of Kim Rok Soo in his mid-thirties. My body then returned to the past to when it was 18 years old and Kim Rok Soo’s soul was moved into it.’

          The real Cale Henituse went through a complicated process of transmigrating and returning to the past at the same time.’

          1. xiviichan

            Regressor = someone who returns back in time
            Returnee = someone who was born in a world, goes to another world, then returns back to their own world

            Returnee does not mean to return back in time

            OG! Kim Rok Soo is a returnee because he originally belongs in TBOAH world, reincarnates to Earth, then returns back to TBOAH world via transmigration

    1. Chii3 the Caleism

      Lol yes so kim rok soo is returnee. He is originally/supposed to be born in Alberu’s World/dimension. But the White Star forced his soul to Kim Rok Soo’s body and so the Kim Rok Soo’s soul need to be born im different dimensiom/world.

      And so Kim Rok Soo lived his live in earth, but unfortunately Choi Jung Soo rejected the offer to move in Alberu’s world/dimension as Single Lifers. So God Of Death choose to use the variables, he then make Cale reggressing into the past when Cale was 18yo and made Cale switch it’s soul with Kim Rok Soo as a transmigrator.

      I would say Kim Rok Soo’s soul is a returnee and transmigrator. While Cale Henituse’s is a reggressor and transmigrator. But i still don’t know why The White Star has a similar face as Cale(i mean brown eyes and red blood’s hair?) Is maybe there was a reason to why the white star want to killed cale in his fourthy yo(before cale transmigrator)?

      Uh.. i’ll be waiting for the next update in tuesday/wednesday. Thank you so much, author and translator!

      1. Little Heart

        What if? If the White Star had not taken her body, and KRS had been born in that world, maybe … it could be, would it be Cale’s family? Could it be a Thames? Since, I don’t remember if it was the Duke or Ron, he said that Cale is like his mother.

        By the way, the returnees travel with body and soul (like the Choi), therefore, if the proof of the sealed god had been in Choi Han’s original dimension, he would be the returnee, but he did not stay long in order to accounts … in his original dimension, I think, he has nothing left … Cale would not be the returnee because, as only his soul traveled between dimensions, it is considered transmigration.

    2. MerryLune

      If the white star stole KRS’s body, doesn’t that péan that KRS would have been the next dragon slayer ? That’s why ereuhaben thought Cale belong to dragon slayer family. That’s a very nice plot. Everything said before is slowy connecting together.

      1. komentator

        no. not really, it’s already been explained that Eruhaben thought Cale belong to the dragon slayer family because of the dominating aura. and the dragon slayer power is an inheritance and is not related to the body/bloodline

  8. Io

    If it weren’t because you translated that comment into Korean that explained everything, it would have taken me a long time to understand what had happened.
    Thanks for the chapter <3

  9. KitsuneMasks

    Thank you for the translation!

    Cale’s soul really went from the BOAH world to Earth then back to BOAH world again. He seriously has a tough fate since before he was even born.

  10. Baldingère

    Does that mean the reincarnator acrually possessea all the new bodies? Then he should have a twin for each of his lives. And the current one is Cale.
    What I’m crazy curious about now is who the “we” in the diary is. If it’s an organisation, we might be getting some new allies!

  11. ThatYoungNobleLady

    I seriously set an alarm for every update and marked it in my calendar lmao

    I got spoiled on this chapter from the spoiler I read at a forum, and that really sucks but still, the chapter itself is on another level that the summary that I read. The explosiveness of the pieces of informations hits different and hell don’t even count how many chills I got while reading this.

    anyway, thank you again for the new chapter~! the hospital’s pretty much getting loud and lonely day by day because of other patients coming in and lesser visitors to come by and check on me lmao That’s why I am very much thankful for the continuous translation of TCF AHAHHAHA maybe I’m the only one or many of us– but really, TCF is like the only thing that is keeping me positive and elated while experiencing this bloody hell of a pandemic AHAHAHA

    well, what do you know. Translators can be saviours too, no? AHAHAHA but of course I’m also thankful for the Author-nim. But, the translators played much of the role since most of us can’t read korean so, Translator-nims, thank you very much~!

    1. Ehya

      Yes, we should thank the translators. This chapter was amazing, such an explosive information reveal.

      Also, hope you get well soon dear!

  12. cloudy bay


    Finally. A series that fully addresses the event of transmigration in a satisfaction way.

    I had to pause reading as the gears started turning in my head. I love the authors way of writing, because they give us all the necessary hints and rather than waiting for the character to figure it out to create suspense, the character has figured it out already, since Cale is smart. Either tells us to reaffirm our theory or doesn’t tell us but is already moving with this knowledge and reveals it after the plan has been executed. God, I hate stupid characters that are portrayed as smart. I simp for Cale so much ;w;

    1. Kiko29

      ikr, TCF just explained all the novel/manga/manhwa that skips all the details and simply start the first chapter or page with the usual:

      ”Hi, I’m a (insert category here)…well, so anyways!”

      as if it’s the most common thing in the world lol

  13. Amy

    Oh wow. I wonder why Cale Henituse was specifically chosen to be the body Kim Rok Soo transmigrates into; maybe it has to do with Cale’s mother. Could she also be a reincarnator? The God of Death did tell the original Cale that she would be in Kim Rok Soo’s world, but without her memories.

    Man, I really hope we also get the answer to the mystery of who wrote that Birth of a Hero book in Kim Rok Soo’s universe.

    1. Bored

      It was explained in the chapter that when a transmigrator transmigrates they switch bodies with the original soul which occupied the body it transmigrated into.

  14. Anathema

    I thought her name is Jür Thames. In tcf wiki also said that og!cale’s mother’s name is Jür Thames not Drew Thames. 🤔

      1. Anathema

        Oh I see. And here I thought there was a mistake.😁
        Thank you for the answer translator-nim, and for the new chapter too. ❤️

      2. 45_Hn

        First, thank you very, very much for the translation.

        Im sorry if its quite offensive, this is my opinion, but shouldnt you stick with the original name—Jür or Jur?

        Because, well, this is a person’s work and it’s quite not right to change the name as you please unless you tag it as fanfiction, or you really have a solid background to change it (like it has meaningful name but in korean so anyone aside korean couldnt understand that, thus you change it into one with same meaning but different language). To change it because you merely don’t like it.. it’s quite not right. Im sorry if its too offensive. If you decide to still use Drew, well, its up to you, this is really just my opinion.

        Once again thank you very much for your hardwork and I appreciate it, very much ^^

          Until we find the author’s reason behind the name, the phonetic is best as Jooru. In my opinion, Drew is a better name than Jur as even Jur should have at least been Juru if we want to follow the naming sense that has been followed the whole series.

          1. admin Post author

            When the manhwa (if it ever catches up) gets here, I presume Copin will probably call it Joor since they turned Amiru into Amir. That’s the thing about translations without English spelling from authors. We never know! (For example, the names in SMPU are whack in English but at least the author gave us the spelling of them!)

          2. sanda888

            Thank you very much for your hard work translating!
            We would appreciate it even more if you could add something like “original name was Jur/Juru/Jooru, but I decided to use Drew” in the afterwords after the chapter.
            As a reader I would be thankful to know if “Earth-world-style” names are actually not in the text, since author seems to give special meaning to the names he chooses (like “Raon”).

          3. admin Post author

            I have added the note, but I am not sure this is necessarily an ‘Earth-world-style’ name like Raon. Similar to what the original translator used to do, it was finding the best way to translate a name to English, ala Eruhaben, Deruth, etc. :3

    1. 45_Hn

      Well… i still think it’s the author’s rights to have the names of her characters unchanged if ‘Drew is better than Juru’ is the only reason. Even I had thought Alberu is weird and had been once asking why it’s not Albert instead in translations… here I am now thinking it’s the author’s own style and it’s her right to name her characters as unique as she please.

      It’s still my opinion, thank you ^^

      1. admin Post author

        We will find out in a few weeks whether she makes Copin go with Alberu, Alber, or Albert! The manhwa has been using some very interesting choices like Amir for Amiru.

  15. washi

    This so fucking interesting. So Kim rok soo was supposed to be born in that world, but since the white star reincarnated in his body, rok soo’s had no choice but to go to a body on earth, thus looking really similar to the white star

    I can feel my brain growing

  16. Kiko29

    WAIT, what if the current WS’s body actualy belonged to the Thames family? (that’ll explain the red hair, and the fact that the WS was compatible with the ‘time’ wood ancient power)

    and maybe that’s the reason that there’s no sign of the family until now (cuz maybe he wiped out the family before he new the info about exeptions & variable)

    if thats true, Cale (our Cale a.k.a og!Kim rok soo) is actualy a Thames and have legit reason to know further about the research (or have no choice but to), thus new plot and more things to do & rip slacker life 🤣

    idk, maybe the reason he was kinda compatible with og!Cale’s body is because they were distant family to begin with (sorry for the long ass comment lmao, this is purely just a hypothesis btw)

  17. Athena

    Finally! The explanation about the reincarnation etc!
    And thanks for translating ❤️

    Anyway, Cale really sent a heart attack to his father 😂😂😂
    Deruth had been extremely shocked and clutched his head.
    ‘My goodness! I’m hearing voices now?! I need to focus right now, but why am I so weak?!’

  18. Rita

    After reading this chapter honestly the only thing i can say is “wow”.
    Chapters and detailed information like this are some of the things that make me love tcf!
    Btw since og kim rok soo was originally supposed to be born in this world (before the ws stole his body) and because of this the ws and krs look alike….. Why would a person born in this world and not on earth have the facial characteristics of a Korean born on Earth? (The resemblance between the ws and krs)
    No matter how much i think about it it doesn’t make sense how the supposed original body of og kim rok soo would look like the one on Earth instead of the other way around ( since he was born on Earth AFTER his body on this world was stolen by the ws).
    I know these are just minor details but i can’t help but think this might have some relation to Cale’s mother and her family.
    (This is all just my questions and theories though~)

    Anyway, sorry for the long comment and thank you very much for the translation!!!!

    1. Ehya

      Yeah, that’s a good question. In my opinion, I think the reason why og KRS and WS have similar expressions is because og KRS’s original body in this (Alberu’s world/dimension) world is created to look exactly like his original soul. You know, the og soul and og body should have the same or similar looks even if the og body is stolen by another soul.

      Another reason is because WS star is indeed very tired of his continuous reincarnation thus having a tired expression. The same as og KRS who was very tired in his life in earth because of the things he went through.

  19. my thoughts

    then there’s the subcategories( don’t know a better word for it)
    where the souls either merge together or share the same body
    for regressors , reincarnations and transmigrations

  20. KinoQi

    Omg I love how the author acTUally explains the entire reincarnation/regression process that is always looked over in other webtoon or webnovels, it really just gives TCF another flavoursome depth in its story, still can’t believe my friend said TCF was meh like this is the real deal ;-; I absolutely cannot wait for the new chapter!!

    I’m so glad I read this after I woke up so I can easily process the info ahahah bjt I was thinking if the white star looks very similar to the current Kim rok soo then.. wait his face as Kim rok soo was the first reincarnation right? And the mask covered his face right?? Or wasn’t Kim rok soo his very first body he processed? Omg I think I’m hallucinating information I should really reread everything and wait for new chapter

    Thanks for the new chapter!!!!

  21. 45_Hn

    Now im wondering when TCF will be ended… with the reveal of Jür Thames (og Cale’s mother) and the dairy saying ‘outside the family’, we now have Thames family that… seemingly to be really important, no? And why are they so special to know those things? Ooohh, TCF is just getting more interesting XD

  22. Kuro Neko

    OMG I swear this is so well done. Maybe KRS original body is related to OG Cale, like an uncle or even brother! So KRS and Cale could have been destined to be related but now they live in each other’s body… I would like to know more about OG Cales mom and her family. This should be made into an anime or even live drama because the rating would be through the roof. I can’t think of another novel that has so many facets so well thought out without being boring. And there’s no romance! When everything settles down we could even see Cale’s future since nothing is obvious yet. And there’s the past that could be played out. The loose ends aren’t forgotten and they all come together in a clear and surprising way that works. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

    1. Artemis

      Omzzz I have the same thoughts!!
      This is just an assumption of mine, but what if they’re actually blood-related brothers/twins and the reason why OG Cale was the one chosen by the God of Death to make a deal with was because Kim Rok Soo’s soul and his are closely related with each other😳 which is also why he’s oddly looked similar with White Star (their hair-color and eyes)..

      Author-nim really never fails to give me goosebumps with the revelations he tells in every chapters. Love how detailed he explains all of this, really satisfactory. I swear this is the best isekai novel ever!!!!!!!

      1. MariG

        Twins would make sense, since the White Star current reincarnation is said to be the same age as Cale…
        Also, wouldn’t that make the founding of the Endable kingdom(which is said to be 20 years old too) the same year both of them were born? Though this isn’t new information.

  23. dvl

    “…Our human…is sweating so much after barely even digging. His stamina…is worse than a piece of paper…I really need to imprison him at home for a while……”


  24. ISeeThingsInGrey

    This means kim rook soo should have been a dragon slayer originally meant to protect the lord of dragons; etc. He wouldn’t hsve met choi han but he would have met choi hans uncle.

  25. ISeeThingsInGrey

    Oh and the appearance thing is obviously because a soul shapes the body with slight differences due to genetics. If kim rook soo’s soul shaped that body first then it makes since

  26. Hiraite Neko

    So is that also the reason why there were Earth 1, Earth 2, and so on? Coz of White Star’s repeated reincarnation and many Kim Rok Soo’s appeared and needed a world to live in? Lol just my guess tho~ If so, WS reincarnated by a thousand year so how many Earths could he have made? I dun wanna guess anymore 😅 maybe that was too far-fetched?? (In tsukimichi some of the parallel worlds created from world transfers were destroyed by Daikokuten so maybe some other gods got rid of them here too?) 🤔 This novel tends to get really detailed so maybe that will also be explained? 😙.

    My main concern is the ancient power, will Cale also absorb it? What will happen to the balance on his plate? Or will he just use Embrace again? But he won’t be able to hear the owner’s voice, or was hearing the voice unecessary anymore coz of the diary?
    Guess i’ll just have to wait~💕


    1. Ehya

      I think the indestructable shield which is a wood element can just absorb or merge the new wood element power. The same thing it did with the vitality of the heart to balance his plate.

  27. Nohr

    Mondays AND Fridays? You spoil us 😭😭

    All these bombshells lol. At this point I won’t even be surprised if it turns out the Sealed God was working behind the scenes too

  28. Crying a river

    A few things: it’s funny when you think about it. Kim Rock Soo was supposed to be born in TBOAH. If that had happened, he might have had the luck to find an ancient power and, even if he didn’t, in sure he would fight against the white star (in the hypothetical case where he reincarnated in any other body). If this had happened, Kim Rock Soo of Corea would never have been born, and thus we don’t know if Choi Jung Soo and Lee Soo Hyuk would have died when they did.
    Perhaps earlier, perhaps later, but it might’ve made the GoD unable to contact CJS at all. Or maybe he would and CJS would have accepted the deal with no problem.

    Ultimately, CJS and KRS were bound to meet uvu

    I also like the idea that the White Star’s body was from the Thames/Juru family. It explains why he was compatible or even knew about the ancient power, damn.

    Such a good story, thank you for the translation!!! 💖

  29. Crying a river

    Another thing I noticed that the sun God has some kind of pull in Earth 3 (seeing that he managed to get a weapon from there and hid it for hundreds of years), while the god of death has made more movements in Earth 1. Earth 2 is the one the Sealed God managed to tap into: does this mean every God has their own set of ‘worlds’ assigned?

  30. Ehya

    After reading this chapter and reading all of the earlier comments, I can only conclude one thing… just like what Eruhaben-nim has always said “Cale is such an unlucky bastard.” 😂

    Think about it, the white thing stole his original body in Alberu’s world so he was born in earth 1 but got kicked out again from his 2nd body so he can go back to his 1st og body’s world to solve the huge mess the white thing is doing. Tsk tsk such an unlucky bastard 😂

  31. dvl

    Can anyone tell me what chapter is it again when people saw raon hand? When cale/rok soo use his ability to destroy those statues? C’mon. I want to read it again lol. I’m currently in chapter 77 re-reading this while waiting for new update lol

    1. dvl

      C’mon guys! I really want to read the part where cale destroy those statues! What chapter is it???? Please???

  32. Claudia

    Hola! estoy leyendo los comentarios y me parece que muchos tergiversaron lo que se explico. Voy a poner A para Kim Rock Soo, B para la estrella blanca y C para Cale…Muchos dicen que A nació primero en este mundo y después se fuwe a la tierra 1 cuando B reencarno en su cuerpo, primer error; segundo error, que hubiera nacido hace mil años, no, lo que sucedió es que el alma de A iba a renacer en este mundo pero su cuerpo es tomado por B, dejando que el alma vagar hasta encontrar el nuevo cuerpo, C, quien en sus cuarenta años hace el trato con el Dios, su cuerpo regresa hasta los 18 que es cuando el alma de A se mete a su cuerpo, y C va a la tierra 1, expulsando al alma de A, quien encuentra que el cuerpo que tendría que tener, ya fue ocupado, teniendo que esperar…porque espero tanto tiempo? porque el dios de la muerte lo necesitaba, recuerden que todo cambio cuando el sobrino de Choi Han, no dejo que A muriera, muriendo en su lugar (en ese momento tendría que haber venido acá)
    ¡Ah! y esto es teoría mía, el libro que leyo A fue escrito por el dios, para que sepa que paso en ese tiempo, así, sabiendo como era A, cambiaría todo, con la información que le brindo…

  33. LovesCale

    I just woke up and I feel like I’ve got a big headache because of this bombshell of informations. I still can’t get my head wrapped on this and rereading to understand.

    Anyway, thank you for the translation as always. And again hoping to have the comment box above as I feel discouraged to leave a comment by scrolling up too much.

  34. Annchor08

    Too many bombs being drop lol I wonder if KRS that was born originally in TBoaH before being kick out by WS is born in the Dragon Catcher clan and would he have met Raon who’s a child of the Dragon Lord if the WS wasn’t present to kill the clan and the Dragon lord? Heh I could only imagine the what ifs.

    Thank you so much for translating! ❤️

  35. miaomiao - YHW Cale cult member awaiter

    Brain Freeze! Thank god, someone summarized those info about single lifer etc… I need slurpy. My head hurts…

  36. StarlaBlaise

    If White Star’s current body is supposed to be Cale’s, I presume that his family is too. But thanks to curse all the WS’s loved ones die. So his biological family in a sense is dead.

  37. I had to take a breather and re-read the whole soul thing for like five minutes LMAO. It took a while to comprehend, but this new information just adds a new layer of depth to the plot and LCF’s plot seems to still have more exciting twists in storage. I’m guessing the author isn’t going to end LCF until we reach a thousand chapters or nearing it hahaha

    I’m excited to see what the author is planning to do more in the future chapters with this new information, and I want to know more about Drew for sure.

    Thanks for the chapter!!

  38. Aeris

    As usual, lots of exciting, new information to sort through! Thank you for the chapter!! I am curious though, if the phonetic translation was “Juru” could Cale’s Mom’s name have been “Jewel” instead? Although, I do think Deruth & Drew together sounds cute!

  39. Daloopjoop

    So I get that og!KRS got kicked out of his original body (now inhabited by the white star) and so got sent to Earth to live in a body that was kind of like a twin to the original one. But did that body already exist or did it get made to house og!KRS’s soul? Do body’s need souls to exist? Do souls always need bodies, or are there floating souls out there too? How do single-lifer souls get made? Will souls ever remember their past lives??? My braaaaaiiiinnn

  40. Alone

    Damn bruh, so basically this is what the situation is:

    WS -> KR
    KR -> KR (Earth)
    Ch -> Regress
    CH -> KR (Earth)
    KR (Earth) -> CH

    Well shit that’s just confusing lmao. Thank god someone was able to figure it out.

  41. Kath

    Damn. Do you guys remember when Cale first met White Star? (Chap 333 and 334 “Who are you?”) Back then, Cale said that he felt a sort of kinship with him and he even stopped in a middle of a fight because of the feelings he got. But then he simply shook it off saying that they’ve got similar ancient powers and stuff. It must’ve been because that was Rok Soo’s original body, one that he was supposed to end up in. Damn this is giving me goosebumps.

    1. KNG

      That makes so much sense. WS had KRS’s face because he’s a serial body thief. Cale adapted so well to this world, as if he was always supposed to belong there… Not to mention the likelihood of KRS’s body-stolen-by-WS having Thames heritage, meaning an actual blood relation between Cale and OG Cale.
      No wonder God of Death picked those two for transmigration. They were literally perfect for it. It was killing two birds, if not, three, with one variable. Amazing.

  42. mw_mw_chan

    I finally understand on my second reas-through.

    MC’s original body in the “Birth of a Hero” dimension was stolen by the White Star when the White Star reincarnated, so the MC’s soul floated around until it found a similar body from a different dimension (orphan Kim Rok Soo in Earth-1). This means that the MC’s soul originally belonged to the “Birth of a Hero” dimension and just ended up growing up in Earth-1 due to the White Star.

  43. Hellanutt

    Blame White Radish for everything, I wish Cale could say something like what’s it like living in his body to that motherf

  44. Astro

    Girl this is too much of an advanced concept for my brain to wrap around of😭 kidding. thanks to the explanation, I was at least able to vaguely understand it. so kim rok soo of the munchkin world’s old body was one of the first reincarnations but not necessarily the first incarnation, seeing as how white star took rok soo’s form in the statue? transmigration only happens inter dimensionally and reincarnation only happens inter world?

  45. EchoShi

    Honestly, I found it quite amusing yet sad that Cale had his soul pushed out of his body twice, without his consent!
    (Although the switch was better for him, he still had his body (KRS) basically snatched from him)

  46. bye my slacker dream cause it seems like it fading away

    my brain stop thinking😂but wow mind blown that my brain stop process🔥😂

  47. AnonymousHoo

    Wow, I didn’t know Kim Rok Soo’s body was that desirable 2 cales pushed him out of his body to claim it lmao

  48. RileyYana

    I was rereading this novel while reading the latest updates.
