Popverse's top stories of the day


Despite the implications of the title, Jinwoo doesn’t take on the dungeon raids that pop up in the Solo Leveling anime alone. While most of the people he encounters become enemies, he does make a few close allies who follow him through his adventure. The Solo Leveling cast is full of powerful foes that only Jinwoo, with his newfound player-powers, can overcome.

Wondering who voices your favorite Solo Leveling characters? Here are the big names in this strange world and who brings them to life. We’ll be discussing some spoilers for Solo Leveling season one ahead, so be warned.

Who is Sung Jinwoo in Solo Leveling?

The main character of Solo Leveling, Jinwoo used to be known as the world’s weakest Hunter. Hunters are the only ones capable of entering gates, which open up and, unless they are cleared in time, allow monsters to spill out into the world. Normally, their strength can’t improve no matter how many gates they clear, but Jinwoo finds himself designated as The Player and can increase his stats using video game-like menus that only he can see.

Joohee is a B Ranked Healer who is technically more powerful than the other Hunters that clear dungeons with Jinwoo, but her lack of confidence and tendency to lose her nerve when faced with danger. After she and many others nearly die during a deadly encounter in the first episode, she nearly quits being a Hunter entirely but decides to stick around for a while.

Jinwoo’s little sister is a big reason why he continues to delve into Gates despite his lack of strength. He needs the money to help put her through school while paying for their mother’s medical payments. She tends to fight with him for taking such risks but is ultimately thankful for the work he does. Jinah becomes suspicious about her brother’s new strength, particularly when he changes appearance after leveling up.

Most people who delve into the dangerous dungeons within the Gates do so for the money, but Jinho is one who definitely doesn’t need the cash. He comes from a wealthy family and shows up with high-level armor and weapons to compensate for his lack of strength. He becomes allied with Jinwoo after the pair are attacked by other Hunters within a Gate and Jinwoo saves him. Together, they set out to help Jinho clear enough B Ranked dungeons to allow his family to set up their own guild and become a true power in the world of Solo Leveling.
