Ten years ago, the monstrous horde of the breach formed from space and time began to attack humanity. At the same time, people started to awaken power and started chasing monsters for glory and money. Lee SungHoon, who needs money because of his mother's illness, takes a dangerous job helping to hunt these monsters four times a month by acting as a bait for hunters But one day, he is seriously injured by a monster and remembers his past life as a wizarding king.

EpicNig123 EpicNig123 says...

"I am the Sorcerer King" is similar in many ways to "Solo Leveling". Both have portals which lead to a different world where monsters come out. As well as the existence of hunters, awakened beings which fight these monsters. The main character is extremely op as well, as you'll see relatively early on in the manwha. 

Shinrod Shinrod says...

Same world (monsters that appear in the world), same jobs (hunter parties all over the world), and an overpowered mc.

Both are colored webtoons and both are quite good.

Zerosis Zerosis says...

They are similar but there different enough for it not to be annoying. It is like they are in the same genre but still not the same story. For example in solo leveling the main character surprisingly enough goes solo or with one other person most of the time but in I am the sorcerer king the main character has a party plus he joins a big orginaization also different to solo leveling.So I deffinitly recomend both.

Maxxor2242 Maxxor2242 says...

They both have leads who utilize a leveling system from an unknown sourse.

They both have leads who gained large amounts of power after a near death expierence.

They both have leads who went from having no powers/weakest to strongest. 

Both stories take place in a modern setting with magical elements. 

Kiotary Kiotary says...

It's all the same. "Solo leveling" is more beautifully done; the "I am the Sorcerer King" has a quicker progressing plot

framboesa framboesa says...

Zero to hero protagonist, RPG references, both are dark protagonist inside and have a mother in hospital because of magic

MyBoiLuffy MyBoiLuffy says...

Its not even funny how similer they are, both about a dude who is weak then become op, the story line its self is similer to, portals start opening and people start getting powers there are some slight differences.

Manthika Manthika says...

From a mysterious 'System' the main character, a weak nobody, makes his way towards being the strongest of them all. Game elements, decent plot, good reading- Solo Leveling is the infinitely better version (and original) of 'sorcerer king' which is a blatant ripoff.  Please direct your attention to the glorious art and wonder that is Solo Leveling~

BenW10 BenW10 says...

Both are about characters with a leveling system. While Sorcerer King everyone has a leveling system, compared to Solo Leveling which only the mc has a leveling system, the mc has knowledge of his previous life where he was a powrful sorcerer and he uses that knowledge to become stronger than everyone else. Both are about weak to strong mc pretty much.

SpOoKyLoVe SpOoKyLoVe says...

Similar structure both extremely overpowered. The environment are also the same, "portals appear out of nowhere and they have to defeat the boss in order to close it." In addition, they are both lowkey.

Bonji Bonji says...

because both of them have RPG parameter and are OP MC                                                                                                                                                                                         

Buffin Buffin says...

The two are extremely similar, the main and honestly only obvious difference is that the mc in 'I am the Sorcerer King' is reincarnated, both mc's are powerful and crafty and they fully utilise the power and knowledge they have or have been granted

CreaColor CreaColor says...

Similarities:

  • Both of their world's have magical beasts that appeard suddenly.
  • In both world's some people got powers because if the incident but not everyone.
  • Both of them have a sick mother that they care for. 

Differences:

  • In I'm am the sorcerer king everyone with powers have game like powers (aka status screen) But in Solo leveling they don't.
  • They got their op powers by different means.

SternRider SternRider says...

Both Isekai magic in a kind of modern world based. 2 overpowered mc.

Both have monsters in it which are the main ressource in this world valued by hunters which job is to hunt with their powers granted by a mysterious yet overwhelming entity.

AntonFatkin AntonFatkin says...

Both main characters are OP or become OP. They absolutely smash everything in sight. Both have video game setting with "system" in place. Highly recommend to read if you've read the other.

TruckXkun TruckXkun says...

Both op mc... Weak to strong... Similar rpg type........................................................................................ 

AnimeAtHeart AnimeAtHeart says...

They both have great plots. The main characters are similar, they both are/become rather OP (In a good way). The world setting is similar with the gates/dungeons that open up around the world.

RexMan04 RexMan04 says...

I think ybat ig you liked solo leveling you may like i am tge sorceror king because they are both over powered near the end. Solo leveling has a better storyline, but i am the sorceror king is is 4/5.

Ordreg Ordreg says...

Both act on the premise of portals that hold monsters and both are slightly OP. Where sorceror king is different is that the mc seems open to working with a team and improving others.

Aninsane Aninsane says...

Its not only the overpower hunter who can solo-clear the high tier dungeon, but also about the unique power. This MC is absolutely in par with Sung Jin-Woo in term of skill (or even better?) His skill is have unique power to create magical things combined with technology. He can have unlimited mana supply from nuclear power plant. He even can colonize Mars. I don't think even Sung Jin-Woo can do that! Thats why its nice webtoon to read.

blahp blahp says...

It's the exact same premise for the story. Sick mom in coma, low level monster fighter, finds out they're OP, etc...

Demonlordlucifer Demonlordlucifer says...

It's like a game.................................................................................ya and there both op

BlackQuest BlackQuest says...

They are just very similar and very good. The art is phenomenal the story is a bit lacking but good nonetheless. Love it when the MC is op like this.

Mistfall Mistfall says...

Both mangas have very similar concepts, story arcs and general vibe. For someone they might even seem like copies, but after starting out the scope of problems MCs deal with goes in different directions.

MangaXFriend MangaXFriend says...

Solo Levling  :  If you like action this is one way to go both this and I am the sorcerer king do have action in the begining you would feel that they are really alike but later on you will fall in love with the difference of the two one got powers form the doungen and the outher from his past life.

I am the sorcerer king:

I like it becouse to the difference that it's magic in modern times and all the gates bring inn the fantasy. As the mc is from another world all tougether just makes it better. One of my favorite series 

XadowMonzter XadowMonzter says...

I agree to a certain degree. While in Solo Leveling they completely focus on the Hunters themselves and how overpowered they become to the point of being as powerful as Nations, and even in some cases more powerful than Nations, in "I am Sorcerer King" it takes a different stance on that. The Nations try to retain their influence and instead of getting offuscated by the powerful Hunters they try to work with them and strengthen their own forces. In "Solo Leveling" we have a more centered story around the MC, while in "I am a Sorcerer King" tries to dip just a little into the side of politics in a world very similar to Solo Leveling. It's a breath of fresh air in a very similar story.

yor1 yor1 says...

vary simeler on how they gain power. they also both fight and collect recource in doungs that close when boss dies.

charicner charicner says...

Because they are very similar in exicution, with a video game system to manage the main character.

Reimychan Reimychan says...

They're really similar

• The mc reawakened late

• There are rifts that formed

• Monsters that need to be hunted

• They both have their own power

• The mc are powerful in their past lives

AllesEvermore AllesEvermore says...

The art styles are quite different but the stories themselves hold very similar plot points. The mcs share similar values and overarching goals. If you like one you'll likely like the other. I will note that "I am the Sorcerer King" starts off slower and less intense than "Solo Leveling".

Similar premise where MC gains gamer abilities and is able to grow and gain new abilities through the game-like system. Both start off fairly weak but grow stronger through gaining skill points and such.

Both main characters come from another world or alternate world and become mages and use magic which they become more powerful than anyone else around them. Versatile mage mc isnt as overpowered but he still carries his party members in battle.

Both start with weak MC getting stronger and stronger. And the MC are carismatic and the action is very run to read.

Both are Korean manga that have weak to strong protagonists. They are both constantly working to get stronger.
