Due to the Japanese pronunciation, his name was initially translated as "Kim Hye-Ryen".


Hae-Ryeong is a Korean warrior who has defeated many evil doers in the name of justice. He travels to Japan as an emissary where he witnesses Angelica killing an assassin. He decides to go after her, sensing the great evil surrounding her. In his ending, he spots her but realizes that she no longer has a killing intent. Convinced that people can change for the better, Hae-Ryeong leaves her alone and proceeds on his journey.


A hero in the name of justice who falters when criminals reason with him. He wants to follow in his father's footsteps and work for the good of others. He seems to be somewhat self-righteous, as he dislikes it when his opponents justify their actions

Hae-Ryeong's fighting style is an amalgam of Kim Sue Il and Kim Kaphwan's techniques. He is a quick technique character who can perform his versions of Hienzan, Hishou Kyaku, Hangetsu Zan and Ho'ou Kyaku. He wields a double-edge pike that he uses to combo with spinning attacks and several types of kicks.
