Exciting Plot

Over ten years back, "the Gate" arose, connecting the physical world to the dimension of magic and monsters. To battle these horrible animals, regular people were given extraordinary abilities and were known as "Hunters." Sung Jinwoo, a twenty-year-old Hunter, is renowned for being the "World's Weakest," due to his pitiful power when compared to even a paltry E-Rank. Nonetheless, he hunts monsters diligently in low-rank Gates in order to pay for his mom's medical expenses.

This wretched lifestyle, however, changes when Jinwoo, who believes he is the only person left to die in an attempt gone horribly wrong, awakens three days later in a hospital to find a bizarre screen hovering in front of him. This "Quest Log" requires Jinwoo to finish an unrealistic and hard training program or face the appropriate penalty. Jinwoo is at first reluctant to participate due to the difficulty of the quest, but he eventually realises that it may change him into becoming one among the world's most dangerous Hunters.

Episode Explained

Episode One

Sung Jin-woo, the world's weakest Hunter, reaches a dungeon gate alongside his companion Lee Joo-hee alongside some more powerful Hunters. After defeating the boss, the gate fails to collapse, but rather unveils an additional connected dungeon. The party is evenly divided on whether or not to advance; Jin-woo casts the tiebreaker, sending them down to the remaining half of the double dungeon. The team discovers the basement is empty save for a big area filled with statues that come to life and begin slaying Hunters.

Episode Two

Jin-woo understands that the dungeon they're in has precise criteria for surviving the statues: first, "revere God," then "praise God," and ultimately, demonstrate your faith to God." Several Hunters are murdered while Jin-woo and the party's senior Hunter, Song Chi-yul, carefully grasp the survival instructions. Finally, just Chi-yul, Joo-hee (the person who has fainted due to stress), and Jin-woo remain, and Jin-woo instructs Chi-yul to flee with Joo-hee as he holds the door. Jin-woo, left alone, becomes enraged at his impending death. Nevertheless, as he passes away, he gets a message stating that he has finished the hidden objective and might become a [player] once he accepts the offer.

Episode Three

Jin-woo awakens after three days of slumber, originally believing he had dreamed about the occurrences of the twin dungeons. Researchers with the Hunters Association reveal that it occurred - Joo-hee is traumatised, and Chi-yul is supposedly quitting after losing his limb - and look into whether Jin-woo experienced the extremely unusual "second awakening," in which a Hunter's power increases. The test came back negative. Jin-woo finds a message similar to the one that designated himself a player having daily objectives to achieve and a punishment for failing to do so. After neglecting the very first day and almost perishing in the consequences quest, Jin-woo starts accomplishing each day's goal. He obtains stat boosts and loot boxes, which result in him earning a unique item - a particular dungeon key. He enters and is faced by a wolf creature that is more powerful than anything he has ever fought.

Episode Four

Jin-woo eventually kills the beast and advances one level. More appear, and he progresses through the dungeon, slaying and gaining power before facing the dungeon's monster. In the meantime, outside the scenario, a dungeon break happens that allows a golem to access the real world. Approaching Hunters, especially a PTSD-stricken Joo-hee, do not cause any damage. When Jin-woo exits the scenario and is led into combat, he throws his broken blade toward the golem monster, fracturing its defenses and making it easier for the Hunters to destroy it. He leaves, thinking the injured golem would have been more hurt than he imagined.

Episode Five

Jin-woo accompanies C-rank Hunter Hwang Dongsuk with his five companions in a pickup party for taking on a C-rank insect dungeon, despite the contract stating that Jin-woo is not required to fight but will not receive any battle drops; Jin-woo grows sceptical of Dongsuk's motives as a result of the circumstance. The eight-member criteria for entering the dungeon is completed by first-timer D-rank Yoo Jin-ho, since his family's fortune has provided him with extremely expensive and powerful equipment. After defeating an army of monstrous ants, the group of Hunters discover the dungeon boss, a massive resting spider in a location containing extremely valuable profitable mana crystals. Jin-ho examines Jin-woo's contract and concludes that because the crystals aren't fight drops, Jin-woo should receive the whole portion. In response, Dongsuk and his companions devise a plan to maintain everything and imprison Jin-woo as well as Jin-ho in their superior room, awakening the sleeping spider in the course of it. Jin-woo prepares to defeat the dungeon boss.

Episode Six

Jin-woo finally beats the boss, somewhat to Jin-ho's surprise. When Dongsuk and his party return to the boss room, he tries to force Jin-ho into murdering Jin-woo, but Jin-ho declines. Jin-woo is given a new assignment to eliminate Dongsuk's group under pain of death, which leads him to massacre them. He leaves the dungeon alongside Jin-ho, utilising the cover tale that the others were killed by the dungeon creatures.

Episode Seven

Jin-ho promises Jin-woo an apartment as a reward for his assistance in satisfying guild certification criteria; Jin-woo declines the offer. Jin-woo realises that his everyday mission is exceeding the requirements. After maxing it out, he receives another instance key, which takes him a higher S-rank dungeon which rewards a special elixir that can heal any ailment; Jin-woo knows it has the potential to heal his mother and chooses to take the risk. The first combat in the dungeon involves the guardian Cerberus, who nearly kills Jin-woo several times until he successfully defeats the beast. His prize is the key to the fortress Cerberus was guarding, which contains the components required to make the potion. Realising he would perish if he continued, he swears to return and succeed. In the meantime, the Hunters Association examines Dongsuk's death after learning that the dungeon boss has been defeated. Dongsuk's younger brother, senior S-rank Dongsoo, accuses Jin-woo and Jin-ho and vows vengeance.

Episode Eight

Jin-woo pays a visit to his unconscious mother and resolves to continue his quest to become strong so that he can obtain what he needs to save her; as a result, he accepts Jin-ho's offer to assist in running dungeons in order to create a guild. To meet the party member demand for C-rank dungeons, the Hunters Association recruits those who survived from the double dungeon attack (Jin-woo, Joo-hee, Chi-yul, Kim Sangshik, and Kang Jeongho), as well as because of an absence of Hunters in the area, the group gets rounded out by several imprisoned Hunters who serve in exchange for reduced sentences and are overseen by B-rank Kang Taeshik.

Episode Nine

At a three-way intersection, the gang divides up. Kang utilises the division to murder the captives at the request of the victim's father, and once Jeongho and Sangshik happen upon the situation, Kang executes everyone to cover it up. Jin-woo, Joo-hee, and Chi-yul rush back to the site and face Kang, with Jin-woo revealing his newfound ability to murder Kang. Chi-yul is grateful to cover for Jin-woo. The next day, Joo-hee asks Jin-woo whether he "remembers" while holding out a little Essence Stone.

Episode Ten

Joo-hee informs Jin-woo that she will no longer work as a Hunter and asks him to contact her out if he suddenly discovers himself visiting her home. Jin-ho purchases the dungeon rights for several C-rank dungeons and employs low-ranked Hunters to fulfil dungeon criteria, while Jin-woo and Jin-ho become the sole individuals who enter to clear them. The White Tiger Guild's recruitment manager discovers Sung Jin-woo's name and concludes that Jin-woo has reawakened. He tries to enlist Jin-woo but is unsuccessful. Jin-woo receives a message: he has met a level prerequisite and has been given a job-change quest.

Episode Eleven

Jin-woo begins the job-change quest and is transferred to a large castle. Eventually battling against bands of knights, killers, and wizards (presumably duplicating those he has previously faced), he faces Igris, known as Bloodred Knight Commander. Igris is just as powerful as Jin-woo, who barely manages to defeat the Knight. The actual job-change mission begins, unleashing an endless swarm of the monsters he had encountered on his trip to Igris' chamber. Meanwhile, Korea's S-rank hunters gather and proceed to Jeju Island.

Episode Twelve

Jin-woo, intimidated by the seemingly infinite swarm and recalling his previous circumstances, nearly gives up before deciding to continue. The daily quest timer expires, and he is moved to a punishment zone where he can recover and prepare himself. He returns to the fortress and defeats the first horde. As a reward, he receives the title of "Shadow Monarch" with the power to resurrect the dead into his "shadow army." In the meantime, the S-rank hunters uncover a terrifying discovery: some Jeju Island S-rank creatures are starting to evolve.

Following the conclusion of the first season, The second season, known as Arise from the Shadow, was made public.
