Hyun Won-Jae is a member of the Martial Arts Alliance and head of the One Moon School. His school has a large pharmaceutical company as a front for its existence. He is also Shi-Ho Lee's ex-boyfriend. Throughout the series he constantly tried to help and win the affection of Shi-Ho who he still loves. After Shi-Ho's death at the conclusion of The Breaker, he took her body and placed it in a special chamber as he works to bring her back from her comatose state.


Hyun Won-Jae has slicked back hair and is often seen dressed in either a suit or his lab coat.


He is a short-tempered and extremely arrogant man. This arrogance can get him into trouble such as when he brazenly greets So-Chun Hyuk of the Heavenly Way School with a punch. 

He does not seem to care much for tradition or show much pride or interest in the Murim world and his clan.  The only thing he does seem to care about is Shi-Ho Lee.  His love for her is one sided but he has gone to great lengths to see her, forgiven her of very serious crimes, ignored her obvious affection for Goonmoonryong, and now spends huge amounts of his time and money attempting to undo her coma.  

He seems to be changing slightly due to the influence of Shi-Woon Yi and Sera Kang. When fighting the S.U.C. he aborted them for not appreciating his being a clan head and has now taken Shi-Woon's health on as his personal responsibility. 


The BreakerEdit

At the beginning, he is introduced as the new head of the One Moon School. He does not like the fact that his assistant, Seung, is seeking help from the Heavenly Way School to find the three missing One Moon Divine Dans. This is partly due to the fact that he is aware that Shi-Ho was the culprit behind the theft and wishes to solve this problem by his own means. He sends goons to Nine Dragons High School after her but they are defeated by Shi-Woon. He eventually gets a hold of her phone number and meets up with her at a bar full of his underlings in order to get the pills back. Shi-Ho kisses him and slips a tranquillizer in his mouth. His underlings unsuccessfully try to capture the escaping Shi-Ho with taser guns.

Won-Jae appears again, just as Shi-Ho and Chun-Woo Han try to re-enter the city to rescue Shi-Woon. He professes his love for Shi-Ho again and even when she threatens to kill him, he does not relent. Luckily for him, Chun-Woo does not want Shi-Ho to follow him to the Martial Arts Alliance and sends the unconscious Shi-Ho his way.

The Breaker New WavesEdit

Hyun Won-Jae reappears visibly distraught as he tries multiple methods to revive Shi-Ho Lee, who is now kept in a tank. He is the backer of Seung-Jae Bae and in exchange for Shi-Woon Yi's blood, he has allowed Seung-Jae to use his school's alchemy room. After discovering the fact that Shi-Woon's blood resonates with Shi-Ho, he desperately wants more, even if it means partnering up with Seung-Jae, a member of the dissolved Blood and Bone School. He makes a deal with Seung-Jae, in which they would split Shi-Woon's blood between themselves.

Later, he is visited by the leader of the Mil-Yang Clan, Sera Kang. She reveals the fact that she knows he has ties to the Blood and Bone School and asks for his cooperation in rescuing the kidnapped Shi-Woon. Otherwise he risks his school's destruction at the hands of the Sun-Woo Clan. He agrees after finding out that it was the new Sun-Woo clan leader and Chun-Woo's disciple Shi-Woon Yi who was kidnapped.

He meets up with Seung-Jae Bae at the abandoned factory in order to stall for time so that Sera can sneak in and rescue Shi-Woon. After Shi-Woon clears the way of S.U.C skeletons and Yong-Hyun Yan, Won-Jae takes the injured back to treat them. Sera is sent to a hospital to treat her wounds and in exchange for Shi-Woon's silence, as per a deal suggested by Sera, Won-Jae starts treating Shi-Woon's Ki centre, though the result is not immediate.

Techniques & AbilitiesEdit


Master Martial Artist (One Moon Style): As the head of the One Moon School he is obviously a master of its martial arts to have such a position. Though the full extent of his skills has yet to shown so it's unknown how powerful of a master he actually is.

Medical Knowledge: As the head of One Moon School, that focuses on the medical section, he is very knowledgeable and intelligent. This fact is further shown if we consider that the One Moon Divine Dan is actually the creation of the One Moon School.
