Featured Article

The Ant King (왕) was an immensely powerful Magic Beast born from the Ant Queen on Jeju Island where an S-Rank Gate had opened. The Ant Queen, who was monitored 24 hours a day by a Japanese satellite, showed a massive decline in its magical energy. It was later learned that this was due to the Ant Queen birthing her strongest child, the Ant King, for the sole purpose of beating strong Hunters. The King was one of the few magic beasts capable of communicating with Sung Jin-Woo similar to Baruka of the Red Gate and Kargalgan. Through his ability, Gluttony, the Ant King was able to learn human languages including Korean after devouring powerful S-Rank hunters. It is one of the most powerful magic beasts introduced within the series, with no hunters present during the Jeju Island Raid being able to fight against it, excluding Sung Jin-Woo. The Ant King is the primary antagonist of the Jeju Island Arc. To view the entire article, click Ant King.


10 years ago, after “the Gate” that connected the real world with the monster world opened, some of the ordinary, everyday people received the power to hunt monsters within the Gate. They are known as “Hunters”. However, not all Hunters are powerful. My name is Sung Jin-Woo, an E-rank Hunter. I’m someone who has to risk his life in the lowliest of dungeons, the “World’s Weakest”. Having no skills whatsoever to display, I barely earned the required money by fighting in low-leveled dungeons… at least until I found a hidden dungeon with the hardest difficulty within the D-rank dungeons! In the end, as I was accepting death, I suddenly received a strange power, a quest log that only I could see, a secret to leveling up that only I know about! If I trained in accordance with my quests and hunted monsters, my level would rise. Changing from the weakest Hunter to the strongest S-rank Hunter!

    This is the second round i read the novel. At first i kinda frustrated about the ending because i feel like the whole story was a dream when everyone except just about 2 people know that he save the world. But at the end i think it suit the novel well because everyone in the novel end up to be happy and the mc is not selfish either and he also end up to have his own family. Overall i think this novel is the best action novel i have read so far.

    I love this novel, the character development is the best and the ending was good to, but i will say i was the tiniest bit disappointed that no one knew he actually saved the entire world except for like 2 people. I feel like he should have gotten more recognition, but thats my own opinion. Btw im not hating on this novel in any way.

    I liked the light novel very much I got hooked immediately and finally I read the whole novel I really liked the fact that the mc did not become selfish after becoming very strong and the fact that from the beginning of the story to the end it has matured a lot honestly, the ending for me was very sad especially for the fact that after reading the novel for a long time I was very fond of the series I would have preferred that the series last much longer and in my opinion the romantic plot should have been deepened despite all this is my favorite novel ps: I advise you to read it all because the novel is not at all obvious and is beautiful

    For some reason im not satisfied with the ending in chapter 243 it seems like the chapters i've read so far from the beginning till chapter "242" was just a joke, id tried to read the first chapter of side story but i stopped halfway then. Because i knew already of what will happen.. is there anything i have to look forward with the remaining chapters after 243...? Or should i look for another novel..?

      the recollection/after stories are for me the climax that takes the ending to another level, you could say they're there to let you time to take in the ending sadness, aswell as doubling the hit you receive when finishing reading it.

        I totally agree. It has a sense of finality with some melancholy and humor.

    This is in no way the best novel as few ppl are claiming. It is one of the worse on that I have read. But in no way can you not read it, the writing style is great and you would probably enjoy it. Just don't expect too much. It nowhere near lives up to the hype. Cause once you think about it for a moment, you start to see its faults.

Hands down one of my absolute favorite story to read. I’ve read multiple times and every time even though I know what happens I’m still enthralled.

Main story really was great.
After story was abundant compared to other novels. Nice to see what went on after.

This is a great story! The characters had good depth that allowed you to care about them and cheer them on. When one fell you felt sorrow for the MC's lost.

The ending of the story, while regretful that it ended, was well done. I especially liked the sub chapters afterward that helped fill in some different view points from other characters, without taking away from the story.

I wish it was longer with many more chapters......unfortunately not. :(
I am very pleased with the reading of this novel. I just wish there was a way to contribute directly to the author.

I read Solo Leveling a while ago. I reread a bit of it just to refresh my memory, and my stance remains the same - it's not as good as everyone makes it out to be. Characters are bland or uninteresting, people are less nuanced and not very heavily realized, leading to a lack of tension or care to the stakes. So what if a bigger group of enemies arrive? I haven't been introduced to any of the "normal people" in society barring a few named characters. Rather, unnamed characters who encounter the MC are always bad, leading me to be under the impression that the entire story is filled with good for nothing civilians. The only character I actually liked dies without a significant plot moving reason. The main character and the twists at the end are boring and uninspired. He's just cool with no real flaws or likeable traits. The enemies are more often then not mindless bad "things" that throw themselves at the "good characters". Overall, it just feels sluggish to read towards the end. And people will jump at any moment to praise it to high heaven and then smash down anyone who has any criticism whatsoever, without a second thought.

Easily one of the best Webnovels, If not the best Webnovel I've read to date. Man those Side/after story's had me in tears at the end of every one of them. Chugong thank you for writing this piece of literature that I will always and forever remember and comeback to. I can't say it enough... Thank you... Thank you a a trillion times over, there really isn't any amount of words that can describe how grateful I am for you to written this story. So just one more time... Thank you!

Good for readers that like a protagonist that is a badass and can think like a normal human being under pressure. This also applies to when he is in a bad situation

I can't believe it's done... I've completely read it, those who are actually thinking about if they should read it or not... don't waste your time deciding! Just read it! It's awesome at least for me, I like the ending personally it's quite fresh and makes me emotional and happy. Yeah the story itself shows only development on powers for MC but every single character have its role and it's done beautifully, I like the thing he actually married only one person and loved her till the ending... I have do much to day but I think this should be enough to tell it's worth the read (for me at least)
