Although he is not very talented, the young man can be described as a “Hunter”. This term refers to people who have developed abilities to hunt monsters brought by mysterious rifts that have appeared around the globe. Nevertheless, Sung Jinwoo is a low-ranking hunter, the lowest actually. But during a Raid like no other, the hunter will end up becoming a “Player”.

This unique name designates however only one being of this universe: the one who is able to gain levels. With each level increase, the Player gains in power. At the same time, monsters can be increasingly difficult to take down, forcing him to constantly evolve. Formerly an E-rank hunter, Sung Jinwoo will become the most important hunter in the world. The defender of Humanity will have to do everything to defend his people against adversity.
