Choi is the chachaoong who bears the Choraengi Tal. He has black hair and dark eyes, and is noted for being even taller than Cheoyong. Like Muyeong and Yu Jin, he knows very little about chachaoongs, and is more acquainted with human society. Eunyul met him by chance and stayed at his place sometime in the past. He works in a restaurant, and is described as a nice guy who is scary when angry.[1]

When he meets Yu Jin's crew, he is amicable and friendly. The old man he works for is aware of what he is, which is unusual since Cheoyong usually erases human memories of chachaoongs.  However, the old man's strange obsession with cooking led Cheoyong to believe he would not be a threat.







Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.


Baek Jeong once met Choi by chance, and lived at his place for a while.

Part 1 Season 2Edit

Choi is first mentioned by Baekjeong when Muyeong asks about the four remaining Tals. Baekjeong tells the group that he works in a restaurant but he is unable to remember where it is.

Not long after, Choi intervenes in an altercation between Kang Maru and Luka, and once the dust settles, he sends both off with flyers advertising his restaurant. Everyone at the house except for Baekjeong decides to eat there and meet the next Tal. Saeha remarks that Choi is very tall, and Muyeong adds that he may be taller than even Cheoyong. When the old chef asks if these people are like him, Choi responds that it seems like they are, but he has trouble recognizing them. The group is surprised that the old man knows about chachaoongs, and Choi explains that Cheoyong once came by because of it, but ended up leaving without doing anything to the old man's memories. The group also learns that Baekjeong and Imae are the only other Tals he has met. When he mentions their previous meeting to Imae, the latter does not respond, and Choi says that it did not really matter anyway. After apologizing to Jin for not immediately recognizing him as the next king, he mentions noticing groups of chachaoongs moving around and talking about changing the king,
