Solo Leveling Chapter 155 Quick Recap

In the previous chapter, we saw that everyone in the world was shocked after the biggest gate appeared in Seoul. Hunters from all parts of the world come together to help Jin-Woo, the only hunter powerful enough to face this unknown threat.

Meanwhile, Jin-Woo spends some time with Hunter Cha on Kaisel to apologize for the bath incident. Jin-Woo takes her to a more silent and isolated area after everyone in the park starts staring at them.

On the other hand, the Frost Elf starts rampaging and destroys everything in his way. Unfortunately, no hunter is capable enough to stop this catastrophe while Jin-Woo is away.

Why Solo Leveling Chapter 156 got delayed?

However, a couple of days before the chapter’s release, D&C Webtoon announced that the series would be on a week’s break because of the author’s bad health. Then, the platform confirmed that they are extending the delay for one more week.

“Sorry for the delay in the return of Episode 156. In order for the author to fully recover his health, the DNC Webtoon Biz editorial department will also provide full support. Thank you to all our readers for your patience. We ask for your support so that the writer can have a good life,” said D&C Webtoon in their announcement.

D&C announced the hiatus on Twitter and their official Discord channel. Of course, some fans were disappointed because of the delay, but most readers understood that creators deserve all the breaks they need to focus on their health.
