AKA The Best Light Novel Ever
It’s also one of the most famous of its genre in Korea… I think there’s 34 or so volumes out at the moment. To my knowledge, the series is ongoing.
Light’s super duper amazingly awesome award for epicness.

Hyun (IGN: Weed), is a hardcore, badass gamer. He is fucking genius, and the #1 player of the once most popular MMORPG in Korea. Unfortunately, he is debt-ridden through his father 100 million won ($.1M) and sells his character, Weed. Hyun, not expecting much, decides to start the bid at 50,000 won ($50) and leaves a 24-hour limit. People are skeptical at first because Weed has all these never-before-seen items and is also the maximum level (which was raised just recently), but it is confirmed by professionals that Weed is a legit, well-known player. Although Hyun himself does not know he is famous, since he always trained alone, other people saw him solo never-before-soloed bosses, etc, giving him that rep.
And so the bidding begins, rising exponentially as the auction gains media coverage and big bosses begin levying in (apparently it’s something you can brag over at parties). Meanwhile, Hyun is sleeping. GG. The final value is 3.09 billion won ($3.09M), and Hyun is overjoyed.
