Solo Leveling Plot
In a world where mysterious portals, known as “gates,” connect the human realm to a parallel dimension infested with monstrous creatures, select individuals acquire the power to hunt these beasts. These individuals, known as “Hunters,” are ranked by their power level, from E to S.
The story follows Sung Jinwoo, initially known as the “weakest hunter of mankind” and derisively referred to as the “World’s Weakest.” Despite his low E-class ranking, Sung Jinwoo possesses a tireless spirit and continues to risk his life navigating the perilous gates to support his ailing mother and younger sister.
Starting as a web novel in South Korea by author Chugong, Solo Leveling expanded to over 270 chapters across 14 volumes. It later transformed into a webtoon adaptation of 179 chapters, illustrated by Dubu. The webtoon was available on the KakaoPage platform from March 4, 2018, through December 29, 2021. Solo Leveling web novel also has a spin-off focusing on Sung JinWoo’ son.
