Interesting Facts about Ri Shin in Kingdom

1) Instinctual Type Commander

Instinctual Type Commander

Shin is an Instinctual type of commander, and this first awakened in him during the battle at Kankoku Pass. He gives instructions to his soldiers, based on his instincts alone.

Just using his intuition alone, he matched evenly with Gyo’Un, who was a better instinctual commander than Shin. And, at his Battle of Gian, Ri Boku even praised him for his maneuvers.

2) His Residence Fuuri

His Residence Fuuri

After the Coalition Invasion war, Shin’s achievements have been recognized and he earned his residence and lands, known as Fuuri. Shin had commissioned Den Yu and his friends, to build this for him.

Another interesting fact about this is that this manor was built just adjacent to his small shack. Shin had sent this commission before he left for the Gyou Campaign.

3) Real-Life General

Real-Life General

Ri Shin is based on a real-life General of Qin, Li Xin. The manga events are also taken from the historical events during that period. Shin’s character is also closely related to that General.

The only difference between history and the events of this manga is the lineage of Shin. Li Xin was born of Noble Lineage, whereas we do not know about the lineage of Ri Shin.

4) Immeasurable True Strength 

Immeasurable True Strength 

When we look at the strength level of Shin, we see that it’s written as 93+large alpha. In theory, this means that Shin’s strength can even exceed that of Hou Ken’s perfect 100 when he is in a pinch.

This was the reason Shin had defeated many strong opponents before and also killed Hou Ken. This shows that his strength varies, depending on his situation. He bested Hou Ken in a battle of power, which shows how deadly Shin’s strength is.

5) 1254 Matches against Ri Hyou

1254 Matches against Ri Hyou

Although it sounds unbelievable, Shin did fight against Ri Hyou a huge number of 1254 times. And, this was all done by Shin, during his childhood only.

And in all of these matches, Shin won 333 times, lost 334 times, and their matches ended up as a draw 587 times. This shows his dedication, to achieving the position of the top General in history.

6) Relation with Kyou Kai

Relation with Kyou Kai

Ri Shin has a very unique relationship, with Kyou Kai. He helped her a lot when she was going through hard times. She was able to find a reason worth living for and became a close comrade of Shin soon enough.

Shin also highly values her opinions, as she is also the Lieutenant of Hi Shin’s army. He also fights with her for training many times. Normally, their conversation used to be very awkward, due to Shin.

However, recently Kyou Kai confessed her feelings to Shin. We still do not know how Shin feels about her. Kyou Kai also added that first, they need to focus on their battles ahead before anything else.
