E-class hunter Jinwoo Sung is the weakest of them all. Looked down on by everyone, he has no money, no abilities to speak of, and no other job prospects. So when his party finds a hidden dungeon, he's determined to use this chance to change his life for the better... but the opportunity he finds is a bit different from what he had in mind!

Real Talk, I'm tired of seeing these "omg this manhwa is so good you should read it the story is so good and the mc is so overpowered and kicks everyones ass in a bad ass way" reviews. These reviews are dumb as fuck and they don't contribute anything. The review don't look at the Manhwa from a story stand point and how well developed characters are. When they just see Sung-JinWoo pull something bad ass off they say "oops, 10/10, will read again". Ok rant over The story.. isn't special. Usual Weak to Strong story that you can find basically everywhere. Sung-Jinwoo, A weak person, goes through a near death experience and is handed cheat powers. Take those words into account and apply those words to all the other manga, Manhua, and Manhwas that apply that concept. Quite a lot right? Correct, this story concept isn't original BUT it all depends on the execution on that concept. I must say that the execution is.. decent at best. When he gains those cheat powers he starts training because his cheat told him to. Then, whoopty fucking do, he goes up 2 ranks and he didn't even get out of the hospital yet. After that he just does one dungeon and he's already on par with a B-Rank hunter (If you read solo levelling you know that B to A rank hunters are nothing compared to Sung Jinwoo but these guys are supposed to be the Main High ranking hunters of hunter guilds and he just became one in like, what, a month, maybe less?). He further gets cheat abilities via Job mission, defeats a Red gate boss, then when he clears a couple floors in the Demon Dungeon, he's already barely an S rank by chapter 57. Basically this story is just Sung-Jinwoo kicking ass but just as discreet as possible. Do I like it? fuck yeah I love it, but that's just because I wanna see Sung-Jinwoo further become stronger and see what he does in the future. Other than that, realistically this story has barely any character development. After he completes his goal that has to do with his mom he's literally just on a conquest to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and he's all outta gum (And very soon, he'll be outta ass.) Art is a 10/10 btw, Art is consistent, really detailed, and the story has a lot of bad ass moments that make you want more. Thats literally it, nothing more, nothing less. Also I know the Manhwa isn't finished, I'll probably change the review when the Manhwa is over (which won't be for a long time). Edit: Btw I fucking love this Manhwa, but can't be biased with reviews.
It is BY FAR MY FAVOURITE MANHWA ***in this genre*** that I have EVER read. It is one of those MUST READ!!! I don't usually write reviews , unless it is worth expressing my true feelings XDSo here comes my attempt to not spoil everything but make you interested in readig it) Story I get that first 10 chapters are kinda hard to get over, but after that the most interesting part beggins. And even if this is one of those OP characters stories , it is a lot more captivating than many others you've read. This manhwa has absolutely everything you need. Action , adventure , supernatural powers , magic (good and bad) , fantasy a weak to strong Main character , social life , secrets and breaking of rules , dungeons and very interesting moves and actions from all the characters involved. So the main story line is MAIN CHARACTER developing his skills and becoming more powerful. It was such an intense reading how he was becoming who he is now at chapter 110. Even his appearance has changed , he absolutely DEVELOPED.This is what I like the most about it. And moreover , he is not stupidly boasting about it to everyone around. But instead he is kinda stealthy and descreet about his actions. The only thing I didn't like about the story SPOILER AHEAD!!! was the chapter about insects island. Which sounded a lot like HunrterXHunter stolen idea XD. Or maybe this was just a coincidence that the enemies were also insects XD *** So this is why I gave the story a 9 instead of a VERY HARD 10. Art I am usually not very spoiled about the art quality or format , but this manhwa was one of those beautiful mangas you can hardly find nowadays. It has a lot of pretty effects and the QUALITY is absolutely astonishing . Expecially the blue and black flame - shadow thing I ABSOLUTELY ADORE IT <3 Characters Well. People might think a lot different than me - but I liked every single character - even the villains)They all have their inner world and a story to tell. And every single one has a truth that they believe in , so I deeply care about every single one. Overall SO It is just my advice - Just try to read it. If you get to chapter 30 without noticing how time passes - You'll officially be named a FAN It is worth waiting for every weekly chapter (this is such a pain OMG , I hate waiting)
Updated Review Overpowered setting is really my cup of tea (weak to OP) . The Solo leveling was on it's own league among other manhwa when I read for first time, thus a new setting itself has huge impact on me (at that time I was fed up of isekai and martial art types and system genre was on rise) but as you know, if a plot setting become sucessful many manhwa will adopt similar settings. Similarly Solo leveling style of setting plot got overcrowded. (Second Life Ranker, I am the Sorcerer King,....). Thus improved and more refined of similar 'setting' manhwa's seems pop up here and there because of that many may complain that solo leveling should have more world-building or character-building and may find it less appealing among similar Manhwa's. Art was one of the best in that time and way head in it's competition - it's an eye candy.
