The Heavenly Demon Gives a Massage Chapter 167

“Did something like that happen?”

“… yes. It was on the news, but I guess I didn’t know.”

“Hey what… These days, I only go back and forth between my house and the gym.”

At Team Leader Woo’s words, Choi Ah-ram scratched his head and answered. I’ve been focusing on rehab lately, so I’ve been paying little attention to the other side.

“Nope. Still, no one said they were seriously injured or that their lives were in immediate danger. That’s why it didn’t get much coverage in the news.”

“That is fortunate.”

“right. It was fortunate.”

When Choi Ah-ram showed an apologetic expression, team leader Woo said with a nuance that he might not know enough. Then, the gloomy look on Choi A-ram’s face disappeared at least.

“How did the accident happen?”

“I wasn’t even there… It looks like it was running in the rain and bumped into it once, then ran into it from behind. In a quadruple crash.”

“Gosh… … .”

It’s good that no one was seriously injured. Choi Ah-ram let out a short sigh as he leaned back on the back of the chair.

“I was really lucky.”

“All of them are athletes, so they’re a bit strong, so they could have endured.”

Team leader Woo put his clasped hands on the table while making a nonsensical joke. Then, after a while, he opened his mouth with a bitter expression.

“by the way… Still, I couldn’t help but feel some aftereffects. Whether the severity is severe or less, it seems that the people who had the accident aren’t getting the same results as before.”

That’s good enough.

The Olympics are arguably the largest sporting event in the world. Of course, depending on the event, there may be more prestigious world competitions, but it is still the most iconic competition.

Participating in such an Olympics means competing with athletes from all over the world. That’s why the best players in Korea are naturally selected.

And of course, it doesn’t end with being selected there, but in order to win a medal, you have to polish your skills for a long time again. At least in Korea, being an Olympic athlete has that structure.

And now, it is a period of concentrating on physical condition management along with training so that the skills that have been honed and polished can be fully demonstrated in the actual battle.

In other words, the blade has already been sharpened, and it is time to focus on managing the sharp blade so that it does not get damaged. A sharpened blade would break even with the slightest impact.

‘If there is a car accident in the middle of that… … .’

Even if there were no serious injuries right away, the effects of the impact remained inside the body.

This is because even among the general public, there are frequent cases of feeling fine immediately after an accident, but complaining of pain or aftereffects a long time later.

“… Can anyone tell me who was in the accident?”

“Archery, fencing and taekwondo.”

“Huh, both male and female?”

Team leader Wu nodded once instead of answering. At that moment, a sigh escaped Choi Ah-ram’s mouth. All of them were filial events worth aiming for a medal.

Archery is at a level where there is no need to say anything, and Taekwondo is a field that has consistently secured medals as the country of origin.

And fencing is an unpopular event in Korea, but it has started to produce good results in the recent Olympics, and is a filial event of its own.

“What group were you traveling with?”

“There was an event for a while, so we all went to Seoul together and then went back to Jincheon.”

I must have had an accident in such a situation.

Choi Ah-ram crossed his arms and thought for a moment, then slowly opened his mouth.

“It’s definitely not good… … .”

When spring passes and summer arrives, the preparation period is virtually over. It is a tough time to complete rehabilitation training and condition management, and even if there are candidates, there are difficulties.

At least archery and taekwondo have a pool of players, so they can respond flexibly to some extent, but it is very difficult to do that for unpopular events like fencing.

As someone who has also done women’s weightlifting, which is one of the less popular events, I can fully guess. I didn’t know it well, but it was not difficult to guess that it would be a very chaotic situation inside.

“right. However, the hospital inside the athletes village said that there was nothing wrong with them, and they were only repeating basic physical therapy, and even if they tried to do something else, they would only talk about the budget above… … .”

Whew. Team leader Wu let out a small sigh. Even as a team leader, it was a burning situation for him, who had no special power.

“… But by the way, Team Leader Wu is always the same.”

In the meantime, Choi Ah-ram quietly spoke to me.

“Honestly, it’s not the team leader’s job.”

Woo Dae-seok. He is affiliated with the Korea Sports Council, where he is in charge of the national Olympic team management team.

It can’t be said that it’s not related at all, but the condition management of the players is done individually by each team, and it’s something he doesn’t have to worry about.

“… right. But you can’t be bothered.”

It wasn’t wrong, but Team Leader Woo shook his head with a smile. Aram Choi took a long breath and smiled.

Team leader Woo was a swimmer who was scheduled to participate in the Olympics during his active career. However, due to a leg injury, he could not compete and his career as a player ended there.

Maybe that’s why he has been a person who has been considerate of the players from before, and that’s why he is one of the officials with a very good reputation among the players.

And Choi Ah-ram was also one of those who received such consideration. So, after thinking for a while, she nodded slowly.

“Actually, there is one person who has been very helpful in my rehabilitation. No, it’s not the level of helping, but rather making the impossible possible.”

“Heh heh, you look great, don’t you?”

“No, I’m not joking, for real.”

Team leader Woo laughs at Ah-ram Choi’s words as an exaggeration. However, as if correcting the reaction, Choi Ah-ram spoke in a more serious voice as if emphasizing.

“… That, is it?”

“It’s just that I only got help from the teacher, so I don’t know if he’ll do my favor again… Even if you don’t listen, if you make a reservation now, the schedule will probably fit.”

Team leader Woo answered in a slightly embarrassed voice. Either that or not, Choi Ah-ram muttered with a serious expression with his hand on his chin. Seeing that, team leader Wu asked in a puzzled voice.

“What kind of person are you? Where are you professor?”

“no? You are a masseuse.”

“… masseur?”

Team leader Wu tilted his head at the content that he hadn’t thought of before, and asked again.

* * *

“Um… … .”

Seonghyeon Choi stopped his hands and drooled with a cautious expression. He stood like that for a while, and as if he had made up his mind, he pressed the part he was touching with his hand.

“… Manager.”


“how about it?”

The place he pressed was the Daejeo acupoint located deep inside both shoulders.

According to Kang Tae-han, it seems that if you press here, you can stimulate the muscles of the entire arm. It is the point at which the vitality that rises from the danjeon stops and goes before flowing into the arms.

If I had heard such a thing before, I would have said ‘what does that mean’.

As a masseuse, I have known the location of the acupoint called Daejeohyeol for a long time, but… I just knew it as the point where the muscles of the shoulder converge, because it had nothing to do with the abstract concept of vitality.

However, Choi Seong-hyeon now knew that the words were true. Because he was also able to read, albeit roughly, the flow of vitality flowing through his body along the bloodstream.

“Is it just cool?”

But that doesn’t mean you can use it in practice right away. Seonghyeon Choi asked frantically at Chief Hwang’s cold reply.

“No, is there anything different from usual?”

“As usual?”

“The degree of coolness is different, the whole arm is cool, it seems that something that was blocked has been opened… something like that.”

Hmm. At Choi Seong-hyeon’s words, Chief Hwang closed his eyes for a moment. A reaction as if trying to feel the feeling of the shoulder in more detail. However, his expression remained the same.

“Isn’t there anything like that?”


At Director Hwang’s words, Choi Seong-hyeon removed his bloody hand and started looking for the location again. I guess I’ll have to try again from the beginning.

“In the first place, it is difficult to have such an effect just by pressing a point on the shoulder. Isn’t Taehan-ssi possible?”

“I see.”

Kang Tae-han has a skill that is incomparable to other masseuses. Sometimes when I look at it, I’m like, ‘Is this possible with a massage?’ That’s as far as I’d like to think.

And not too long ago, Choi Seong-hyeon found out Kang Tae-han’s secret. It was to figure out the flow of blood flowing inside the body and use it to massage.

One more important thing than that.

Now he has the same ability!

He also gained a sense of humor, and after receiving Kang Tae-han’s help, that sense became clearer.

So, he thought that he would be able to show the same skills as Kang Tae-han, but… … .

‘It’s not that easy.’

Now, a few days have passed since then.

As time passed, I got used to this new sensation in my own way, and my understanding was relatively deep. However, the more I thought about it, this road was never an easy road.

The reason why my senses have been opened and I can perceive ki is… It was literally just the beginning. It’s not that I haven’t taken off my walk, but I’m just at the level where I can crawl.

In order to use it properly, a much more sensitive sense and detailed workmanship were needed. And Choi Seong-hyeon was not yet equipped with both.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that nothing was gained.

As there are more things to see, the field of view to identify problems has broadened, and the ability to analyze and take action has also improved. At least as a masseuse, it can be said that she has achieved remarkable growth, no, evolution.

‘However… Should I say that the way to go is also far away?’

As much as there were more things to see, his own shortcomings were also clearly revealed. And along with Kang Tae-han’s stage in a far-high place.

Even when I didn’t know, it was a vague goal, but now… It’s so far away that I can’t even guess. It feels like realizing that the stars that I thought were attached to the sky are at the end of the universe.

“What is so gloomy?”

“why. Do you look depressed?”

“It’s because you stop doing a massage instead of giving a massage.”

Director Hwang, who was lying face down on the bed, raised his upper body for a moment and looked behind him. However, he looked at Choi Seong-hyeon’s face and immediately fell on his face again with a laugh.

“It wasn’t somber.”

Contrary to his worries, Seonghyun Choi is smiling brightly.

To be frank, Choi Seong-hyun has been feeling his limits lately. The tips and tricks that can be learned as a masseuse are limited.

Of course, I was constantly taking classes, and I continued to develop my skills, but… There was such a certainty that no matter how much I learned this, I would never become like Kang Tae-han.

In that situation, a whole new path has been opened.

Even though the road is so vague and the end is unknown, but… Still, we can make progress little by little. You can break through what you previously thought were limitations.

“What reason is there to be depressed?”

And isn’t that enough?

Of course, it is still insufficient and lacking. I already feel like I hit a wall. However, this is much better than not being able to navigate at all.

“Damn it, I’m just worried… Knock off!”

“Oh, did you just get a feeling?”

Director Hwang, who was laughing hysterically. Then, in a moment of surprise, he grabbed his left arm. It was the moment Choi Seong-Hyun pressed the Daejeo-Hyeol in his left shoulder.

“… Oh, I think you came?”

“Then, is it like this here too?”


Seong-Hyeon Choi, who immediately presses the right major blood pressure. Then, this time, Director Hwang showed the same reaction, got up and sat down on the bed.

“It hurts!”

“Does it feel very different from when you received it from Taehan?”

“different. what can i say… Different softness? Does the stimulation feel too harsh?”


At Director Hwang’s words, Choi Seong-hyeon fell asleep for a moment and fell into thought. It seemed like it would take a bit more practice to use it in practice.

* * *

Meanwhile, Kang Tae-han was driving a car.

A narrow road into the mountain.

There are no people at all, and the road continues for a while as if there is a road through the forest. But go a little further in there, and get out of the woods.


An open plain that eventually reveals itself.

The neatly laid out golf course first catches the eye, and then the pensions lined up next to it naturally catch the eye.

It is a scene that seems to have been moved from an ideal villa that comes out of a little fairy tale.

“It’s really nice, here!”

Seeing that scene, Yoo Se-ah, who was sitting in the passenger seat, burst into admiration over and over again. Kang Tae-han smiled at her reaction.

“Iknow, right. It’s my first time here too.”

A golf course and pension located in Yuseong-gu, Daejeon.

Even while the construction was going on for a while, the scenery was quite nice to see, but seeing it organized and decorated like this after the construction, it feels several times better than then.

“It feels a bit like being in a foreign country.”

“Come to think of it, I don’t think I said anything… … .”

Yoo Se-ah looks around in all directions with a big smile from the parking lot. To her, Kang Tae-han added, as if belatedly thinking about it.

“Here, there is also a hot spring.”

It was nothing different, it was the same hot spring that Kang Tae-han had pierced himself the other day.
