  • LOCATION: Isezaki Iljincho, Korea Town
  • QUEST GIVER: Eomeoni’s Vow
  • CHAPTER: Chapter 7 – The Spider’s Web


  • This substory should be available during the start of Chapter 7 – The Spider’s Web and entering Eomeoni’s Vow
  • When you enter the restaurant you will witness a scene involving a drunken man, you will also find out that this drunk is an actor named Il Yu-Jin
  • Our next destination is Bar Rodriguez on Bar District
  • Here you will witness a poor man being harassed by Il Yu-Jin. Choose to Intervene. This will lead to a fight, Il Yu-Jin seems to be weak to Fire so use that to your advantage
  • After the fight, Ichiban will take him to the park in hopes that he sobers up a bit more. By now you should know the man’s name and I have mentioned it enough time by now too, anyway selecting the correct option will reward you with Intellect +10
  • Ichiban will then agree to help the guy by getting some water for him. You can get some Suntory Mineral Water for 110yen at any of the Vending Machines, if you are struggling to find a machine then you can find one on Pier Street
