Why Was Solo Leveling Chapter 169 Got Delayed?

Last month, the editorial department at D&C Webtoon confirmed that Solo Leveling is going on a hiatus for a week. According to the official announcement, the upcoming chapter was delayed because of the author’s health issues. After that, the editorial department extended the delay for one more week to give the author some more to recover. So, we’ll not get chapter 169 this week, but we do have a new release date for the chapter.

For the recovery of writer Jang Seong-rak’s health, we have extended our leave of absence for one more week,” said DNCWebtoon in their official tweet.

The raw scans for the next chapter have yet to come out. However, based on what happened in the web novel, the chapter will kick off with Jin-Woo explaining the world leaders about the upcoming threat. Not everyone would believe the hunter, so he’ll open the one-sided gate to show everyone the massive army approaching Earth.

After that, Jin-Woo will reach China, where a massive gate will open; the same will happen in Canada. However, it’s in Canada where a threatening entity will appear. And obviously, things will get worse as Jin-Woo won’t be present to fight the being that will arrive in Canada.
