How to Live as a Villain Chapter 125: Release Date, Recap & Where to Read

How to Live as a Villain Chapter 125

How to Live as a Villain Chapter 125 will be airing this weekend! In the previous chapter, Seonghoon used a dirty trick of poison to defeat the Wisdom protector and pass the game.

Though deceiving and mind games were counted as wisdom, the usage of poison wasn’t an “honorable” way to win for the protector, who angrily kicked Seonghoon out despite making him past the next.

In the upcoming chapter of the Manhwa, we will be witnessing Seonghoon’s test against the Stamina Protector, who wouldn’t be fooled by such petty tricks. The protector heard of all the things Seonghoon did in the previous test and wasn’t going to let him go that easy. 


Seonghoon continues his match with the Wisdom protector as he needs to pass the test. He had already lost before and tried to cheat his way, but the Old man would see through all his tricks and make sure he wasn’t successful with any of them.

Exhausted, Seonghoon asks the protector if he could just let him pass, but the old man refuses, saying that the protector’s duty isn’t simply to grade the tests. They’re also responsible for helping the players reach their maximum capacity and assisting them with their powers.

The Wisdom protector tells Seonghoon how he’s approaching the test in a clumsy manner, and though he has good stats with the superhuman title, it still isn’t enough to beat him as he otherwise wishes. He needed to do better, as the old man still had the upper hand. 

Seonghoon’s superhuman power came from a temporary buff, and the whole time, he was using different tricks to survive after failing “the mission.” As a final attempt, Seonghoon challenges the wisdom protector to a game of go.

His only condition was a 10-second interval between moves and to finish within 24 hours from the start of the game. Seeing how simple and rather amusing Seonghoon’s conditions were, the old man began to analyze the situation and think of the tricks Seonghoon could possibly pull to win the game.

Meanwhile, Seonghoon decides to take a nap. When he wakes up, he decides to make sandwiches and tea for himself and the wisdom protector. Now, the protector thought Seonghoon had poisoned the tea as this was the first time he was offering it, so he refused to drink it.

After eating, Seonghoon and the Wisom Protector start the match. The old man had already protected the go board and took care of being schemed by Seonghoon’s tricks- just as he had anticipated. As it reached half-time, Seonghoon warned him not to take the game so lightly.

Just then, the Wisdom Protector felt his vision get blurry and his head getting dizzier. He then realized that the poison was inside the sandwich and not the tea. In fact, the tea had the antidote that Seonghoon offered, but using mind games, he was able to convince the old man that it was otherwise.

The ten-second gap between each move was simply to let the poison take its course mid-game, which worked. The wisdom protector, in a rage, admits his loss and kicks Seonghoon out after giving him a pass.

The next place Seonghoon decided to go was the Stamina doorway, which he thought was a safer option than strength and dexterity. He was greeted with disgust by the protector as he was informed of the dirty tricks he had used to defeat the old man.
