Jeju Island (제주도(濟州島), Jeju-do) became estranged after South Korean Hunters failed to close an S-Rank Gate. It underwent 'Dungeon Break' and the island became uninhabitable four years ago. Ever since the Dungeon Break of Jeju Island had occurred, South Korea had become the only country in the world to lose any of its land to magic creatures. While many countries openly expressed sympathy, inwardly, they laughed at the apparent incompetence of Korean hunters. When all three reclamation operations failed, the criticism reached its peak.

Like that, two years of humiliation passed.

It was then announced that the fourth operation would be a joint task force comprised of Japanese and Korean hunters. There were some skeptical voices around the world who suggested that even with Japan's help they wouldn't be able to exterminate the magic creatures properly. But then...

Twenty of the "mighty Japanese S-rank hunters" had died or fled the raid, leaving only Jinwoo and his army of black soldiers to clean up after them.

In a way, people's enthusiasm was understandably natural. Just as thirsty people dreamed of seeing an oasis, people had cast away their feelings of helplessness at the sight of Jinwoo's entrancing performance. They couldn't restrain their lingering happiness and ran out onto the streets after hearing the news of Jinwoo's success.

Characteristics

The Island was littered with high ranked Ant Magic Beasts that totaled to 8,700 B-Rank and above ants on the island prior to the Jeju Island Reclamation Raid. The ants lost their source of food and turned to cannibalism. Queen ant used all her magic power to create the perfect killing machine, the ant called himself 'King'. Ant King is the second monster to be able to speak human language.
