Arguably one of the best parts of the webtoon Solo Leveling, the thrilling and dramatic battle of Korea’s strongest hunters in the S-rank dungeon of the Ants on Jeju Island has attracted immense attention. the readers. This dangerous and interesting confrontation has come to an end because the King Ants have been defeated, the hunters return to the mainland and Jin Woo stays on the island to gain experience.
At the end of the previous chapter, Sung Jin Woo extracted Ant King’s shadow and shortly after, an extremely powerful new dark soldier was born. With the rank of General, this is the first time Jin Woo knows about its existence besides the lower rank such as Elite, Knight, Elite Knight. Jin Woo deduces that the strength of this new soldier will surpass that of all the soldiers he currently has, because the power of Kien Vuong’s current life is at S-rank.
While Jin Woo wanted to extract the shadow of the Ant Lord, unexpectedly, King Wang asked for a name. So far, no dark soldier has been able to speak like a human. King Wang is the first case that Jin Woo knows. The other shadow soldiers who used to be humans like Tusk, Iron, Min Byung Gyu were no longer able to speak. Therefore, the only difference between Ant King and others is rank. The rank of general helped Kien Vuong retain his ability to speak as if he were alive.
King Wang called Jin Woo “Your Majesty” and showed great loyalty. In the end, the name Jin Woo chose for this Shogun’s rank dark soldier was “Ber”.
Without stopping at Ber, Jin Woo continued to extract the Shadow of the Lord. With the power at the top of his lair, it was obvious that the rank of Ant Lord was also General. However, when the Ant Lord was just extracted, the link between Jin Woo and the ant colony weakened. As Ber explained, the only ant’s ability is to control the ants, so when the Ant Lord is summoned, Jin Woo’s control will be given back to him.
In addition, despite the high rank, the power of the Ants is extremely weak. Because its energy is only for reproduction, when there is no body, the fertility is also lost. In Ber’s opinion, the Ant Lord could not fight like the other dark soldiers. Realizing that the Ant Lord was not useful, Jin Woo quickly decided to cancel extracting its shadow.
This time, he didn’t take away the magic crystal, but left it to rebuild Jeju later. Besides, Jin Woo got another important object from Ber’s body. It was the radio that Japan’s No. 1 hunter Goto Ryuji used. This promises to be an important detail in the story line later.
In the depths of the Lord’s lair, the ants have been annihilated, but outside there are still small ants who are confused because there is no commander. Before the raid a total of 8700 troops, after only about 4,000. Jin Woo immediately ordered Ber to destroy the rest.
At the end of the chapter, the situation outside the island was quite tense because ants began to flood in. The hunters began arrayed to destroy them. However, Ber’s presence promises to be of great help to hunters to quickly defeat the ants.
