As usual male characters get shafted hard. On the other hand the sc girl miniskirt is a separate item. That’s awesome no more need for tira ripped skirt if I want a decent miniskirt.
Yeah, what the heck. Would it kill them to make decent stuff for the men? At least Hwang's stuff is good. Also, if you check the parts on the latest update you can see the free items with update.

Why does this weapon appear twice?

I took a look at Hwang's story. It seems to follow half a year after he infiltrated the Korean capital and stole the Soul Edge fragments (mentioned in his SC3 story). After that we're to assume he studied Tao magic under a man named Wong Su-hyeong (I don't know how they'll write it in English) which will probably be the basis of his Soul Chronicle.

I always thought a Podao was a polearm weapon.
In fact, Seong Mina's weapon is probably the closest to a Podao.
Its too heavy/broad for aNaginata, but its not broad enough to be a Guandao

I got this from google translate and thought it was strange. And funny.
You know what's funny about that name translation is that you would have definitely seen that as a character's name in 80's/90's translated games. Miles Edgeworth, what an hilarious name for Mitsurugi.
Miles Edgeworth is a character from the Ace Attorney video games. His name in the Japan version is Reiji Mitsurugi. Google must have it earmarked in their system to trigger when it sees Mitsurugi for some reason.

So regarding the speculation if this is old timeline Hwang, his bio pretty much confirms that this is new timeline Hwang as his new talsiman abilities have been taught by Woo Soo-hyun. IIRC this is the same guy who trained and looked after Xiba.
That was Kong Xiuqiang, Xianghua's dad/Xiba's granddad/the guy that Mina runs into in her Soul Chronicle. This Soo-hyun guy is new.
