For those unfamiliar with Solo Leveling, or are in need of a refresher.
The story is as follows. Jin-Woo’s miserable life changes after believing himself to be the only one left to die in a mission gone terribly wrong. He awakens in a hospital three days later to find a mysterious screen floating in front of him. This “Quest Log” demands that Jin-Woo completes an unrealistic and intense training program, or face an appropriate penalty. Initially reluctant to comply because of the quest’s rigor, Jin-Woo soon finds that it may just transform him into one of the world’s most fearsome Hunters.
