The Crimson Moon was an infamous vigilante rebel against the government of King Jin Won. The leader of the rebel army Deung Ha Bul Myung, he was said to appear only in villages where the administration is rotten with corruption, punishing the administrators and alleviating the burdens of the people. Even the large reward for his capture was not enough to sway the people and was the reason why no trace of him can be found.[1] His distinct trait was a red mask, and he only acted at night. His true identity was Yi Hwi.


Compact Heist ArcEdit

One midnight, he and other members of the rebel army including Yi Jeok, Gil Mu Jin, and Baek Ho infiltrate the chief state councilor's residence in order to retrieve the compact. He and Jeok are tasked to retrieve the compact, while the other two are assigned to find the missing inspector general. As the chief state councilor goes out of his room, the Crimson Moon steals the compact. As the former goes back to his room, he realizes that the compact has been stolen. The chief state councilor reveals to Heuk Rang that what they have taken is a fake. However, the Crimson Moon has taken the real compact, shocking the chief state councilor and immediately orders the captain to make haste in capturing the perpetrators.

The Crimson Moon battles Baek Ju

While escaping, he and Jeok are tailed by Bi Yeong Pal Mu, including Baek Ju and Baek Ah. He suddenly gets caught by Baek Ju's lasso and gives Jeok the compact, forcing him to escape by himself. The Crimson Moon briefly battles Baek Ju and manages to escape with the help of a smoke bomb. However, Heuk Rang throws a poisoned dagger at him and wounds him, seeking refuge at a nearby location.

His mask is also removed in the battle, though his identity remains unseen by the ensuing soldiers. Though he is discovered by Yoo Dan Ah, she opts to let him flee in exchange for cushioning her fall earlier. Jeok arrives and knocks her unconscious, fetching him to leave the residence.[2]

Chase Arc Edit

One rainy midnight, Nabi changes into the Crimson Moon and rushes to see Dan Ah, who failed to be met by Yi Won. He arrives in the middle of an assassination attempt on Dan Ah, and, as an assassin is about to kill her, the Crimson Moon saves Dan Ah and receives a slash on his back. He tells her to run away and takes care of the assassins from Nam Hyeon. On their escape, Won gives Dan Ah his shoes and continue to walk, while an unmasked Crimson Moon watches from afar, holding Dan Ah's shoes.[3]

The Crimson Moon spots an inferno at Bi Hwa Rim

The Crimson Moon and his cohorts infiltrate the palace to search for medicine to give the plague patients. As they arrive, he notices and remarks how quite unguarded the palace is. As they enter the room supposedly where the medicine is located, they surprisingly find it empty. Just then, Jeok points out to him that Bi Hwa Rim seems to be under attack, much to his shock.[4]

Trivia Edit

  • His name in Korean is romanized as Hong Wol. Hwi also used this alias as a pseudonym when he sells paintings in the markets. Often referred colloquially as Hong, it is the shorthand version of Hong Wol.
