Solo Leveling is a Korean web novel series, also known as manhwa, written by Chu-Gong and illustrated by Jang “Dubu” Sang-rak of Redice Studio.

Despite garnering a reputation of being the world’s weakest hunter, he makes an honest wage by frequently joining dungeon raids.

After his party left him for dead in a dangerous double lair, Jinwoo accidentally completed a secret quest, which earned him the right to become a “player”, a special role that allows him to clear dungeons, obtain quests, and raise his stats by himself.
