Solo Leveling Episode 4 Recap

Just as he’s about to be cleaved in twain by one of the statues that annihilated his adventuring party, Sung suddenly wakes up in a hospital without any injuries. He’s soon greeted by Woo Jinchul, the director of the Hunter Guild’s intelligence division, who reveals that his friend Lee Joohee is alive but undergoing mandatory therapy before questioning how he miraculously survived the disastrous expedition.

Once Jinchul leaves, a series of video-game-like hud screens pop up around Sung, causing him to remember that one of these windows allowed him to survive his ordeal in the dungeon. The screens are extensions of a mysterious entity known as “the System,” which promises to reward Sung with real-life experience points he can use to “level up” in exchange for completing specific “quests.”

“At first, Sung dismisses the System as a trauma-induced hallucination. However, his skepticism is shattered when the System punishes him for not doing his “daily quests” by forcing him to survive an onslaught of monsters for four hours. The next day, he completes his first daily quests, significantly speeding up his recovery.

A few days later, the System guides him to a secret “solo dungeon” and tasks him with clearing it out. Forced into a pack of goblins, Sung finds the will he needs to face his fear by remembering he became a Hutner to support his mother, who suddenly fell into a coma. He manages to kill the goblins, only to be ambushed by a red wolf.
