One world is the modern day china and the other is a medieval world without any technologies. And also Liu Feng gets a boost to his physical power each time he transfer to either worlds. Unique story line of this webtoon starts when he gets scammed into buying a malnourished city by a Baron. Liu Feng tries his best to develop this city into a grand one by slowly introducing modern technologies.
One of the first ally he found in this world was a Cat demi-human name Mina. She was imprisoned by the previous city lord as a a slave. Therefore she harbored immense hate against humans. But after Liu Feng release her she becomes less awry and starts to trust humans. One of the main tasks that Liu Feng did after becoming the city lord was reducing all taxes and abolish slave trading.

And during this process he will face various problems such as food crisis, uprisings etc. But he overcome all these with modern knowledge. Through out the story he helps various beast-women with their problems gain their trust. Even though he doesn’t show any lust towards them like any other harem. These beast-women fall in love with him for his confidence and compassion towards his people.
Not only modern technologies Liu Feng introduces modern lifestyles as well to his citizens. Such as public toilets that doesn’t exist in this unsanitary medieval world. And sports like boxing and hockey were introduced as a past time to the city. Not only that he teaches his people how to grow vegetable in winter to avoid food crisis.
