"Riverside" is a thrilling, action-packed manhwa series in which Yun-hee, Blade, and Han-young cross over time and space to meet and even change their destiny. The story unfolds in the 23rd century, with Yun-hee and Yun-woo, having their picture taken at a monastery before they are whisked off to be adopted. In the next scene, it is the year 2274 and a mysterious Doctor Joseph changes the 'confidential code' of the 'Riverside' satellite. This 'code' is desired by many parties. The satellite seems to have tremendous power, but we don't know what kind. He escapes with the code and the police are in search of him and the code. For some reason, the police of the future, think that Ji-soo/Yun-hee is holding this mysterious code, perhaps hidden somewhere on her body. The year is 1994, and Yun-hee is now Ji-soo. The only memory she has of her past, is that she has a younger brother. In her spare time between high school and competitive Kum Do(a fencing sport with bamboo swords), Ji-soo searches for her missing brother. Blade/ Nicolae and Valeria travel back to the past in pursuit of the missing code. They try to kidnap Ji-soo, who they discover is also a 'chronoid.' They are certain she has the code. Chronoids have superhuman strength, are lightning fast, abd have great fighting skills. They also have the power to regenerate themselves back to health, in case of injury. But every time they try to grab her, Han-young interferes and helps Ji-soo. However, Ji-soo does get caught after she is tricked into thinking Valeria has Yun-woo. In fact, Valeria had a robot re-created to look like Yun-woo. Throughout this time, Ji-soo has no idea why she is being pursued, because of her amnesia. We also do not know if she in fact has the code. Unbeknownst to Valeria and the future police rangers, Blade has his own reasons to find Ji-soo. He knows Ji-soo as Yun-hee in the future. He does not want to kidnap her or torture her, to get the code. In fact, he intends to rescue her. But when Valeria finds out, she is furious and calls Blade a traitor. Valeria cannot get herself to kill him because of her feelings towards Blade. Blade is able to rescue Ji-soo from Valeria and the story continues in volume 2. Original back cover copy: Time is like an infinite, flowing river whose course continues forward, steadfast, unchanging. But its unchanging course is not without escape routes and veiled egresses. This is the chronicle of two who became one, defying the fates that conspired to keep them apart.
