Solo leveling Light Novel : 137


The answer sounded an equivalent but its 'nuance' was rather tons different than the one that came before . If she was kidding around just , then she was dead serious this point .

"What's wrong? you think that it's weird?"

" . . . . . Oppa, why are you naming your Guild like that?"

"Because i prefer traveling solo . "

"It does sound such as you , but still, isn't it a touch strange to call your Guild like that?"


"Isn't your ability summoning out those black-armoured soldiers?"

"Yeah . "

"So, if you get technical about it, you are not fighting alone, right?"

Now that he heard her opinion, that made some sense . Jin-Woo nodded his head .

'I might imagine of it as just another one among my skills but it won't look that thanks to people , is that it?'

Indeed, she had some extent there .

This Guild might find yourself accompanying him for the remainder of his life, so he wanted to offer it a reputation that best represented who he was . and that is why he went with 'Solo Play', but now . . . .

'If truth meaning doesn't encounter all that well, it'll be useless . '

What might be another term that would describe him the best?

Jin-Woo asked his sister's opinion again .

"How about 'Ah-Jin' Guild?"


Jin-Ah mouthed the name for a touch , before asking him back with a smile .

"I kinda love it , cuz it seems like my name but flipped around . But, what does it even mean?"

"Ah (我) means 'myself' and Jin (進) means 'moving forward' . "

Meaning, only he could step on this road . And it had been a reputation he wanted to offer to the Guild that might grow alongside him .

"Combine them together, and you get the meaning of 'I shall progress forward' . That's Ah-Jin (我進) . "

"Ohh . . . "

Jin-Ah came up with the simplest praise she could consider .

"You know, that does not sound bad in the least . "


Next day .

Jin-Woo visited the office armed with the new Guild name .

"Hey . It's about the Guild's name . . . . "

Yu Jin-Ho had been within the office since early morning, working . When he heard the new name from Jin-Woo, an excellent smile formed on his face .

"That is a superb name, hyung-nim!!"

Didn't they assert that a swan floating elegantly on water was kicking furiously under the surface? Yu Jin-Ho had been feeling as desperate as that old saying .

'Whatever it's , everything are going to be fine as long as it isn't Solo Play . '

He imagined 'it' so, numerous times already . which would be him introducing himself as 'Hello, I'm Yu Jin-Ho, Vice-Chairman of the Solo Play Guild' .

That seriously tormented him .

He couldn't make certain of why, but a corner of his heart ached whenever he imagined himself saying those words . However, how could he dare to rebel against a reputation that hyung-nim had worked so hard to return up with?

He resigned himself thereto fate on the other hand , a heaven-sent opportunity came knocking in his way!

"Hyung-nim, let's accompany that as our Guild's name!"

Jin-Woo made his decision after receiving his partner's genuine consent this point .

"Okay, so we selected the Guild's name, finally . "

Yu Jin-Ho began crying call at elation inwardly after hearing Jin-Woo make that declaration . Meanwhile, the latter rubbed his chin and muttered out .

"The remaining issue is that the last founding member slot, isn't it?"

"Oh, that . Hyung-nim?"


"What happened to Cha Hae-In Hunter-nim yesterday?"

"I don't think it'll compute with Hunter Cha . She's not exactly who i have been trying to find . "


Yu Jin-Ho hastily swallowed a shocked gasp . He expected his hyung-nim to carry a high standard, but to think that he'd not be satisfied with a Hunter on Cha Hae-In's level!

Hunter Cha Hae-In was a rank S, she was still very young, her records were excellent, and to top all of them off, she was beautiful also . regardless of from which angle, she was just about perfect . At least, from the attitude of an 'average' joe, that was .

However, would the word 'average' even apply to his hyung-nim?

'I mean, he almost caught in a frenzy all the rank S monsters by himself within the first public raid he participated in as a rank S, in any case . '

It'd be oh-so-obvious that 'regular' rank S Hunters wouldn't even be ready to catch his attention . But, if that was the case then just what quite a Hunter would satisfy hyung-nim's strict judging criteria?

It felt as if the many applications this yet-to-be-named Guild had received recently all thanks to the name of 'Seong Jin-Woo' were close to be thrown into a garbage heap now .

'But, i do not think anyone are going to be better than Hunter Cha Hae-In among the remainder of the applicants, though . . . . '

Yu Jin-Ho was suddenly beset with worry that the Guild might never get to open its door at this rate, and he cautiously asked Jin-Woo .

"Excuse me, hyung-nim . What quite an individual are you trying to find , anyway?"

"Someone with a Hunter licence who doesn't care much about the Guild's activity but we will still place our trust in . "

"Uh . . . . ?"

Yu Jin-Ho thought from an individual meeting that criteria perfectly directly .

'Isn't that . . . . . '

It was then .

Knock, knock .

Someone knocked on the office's entrance .

"Who is it?"

Yu Jin-Ho stood up from his seat and opened the door . And he found two unfamiliar men standing there looking somewhat awkward and every one .

They were none aside from Chairman Park Jong-Su and his deputy, Jeong Yun-Tae of the Knight Order Guild, who rushed up to Seoul to possess a talk with Jin-Woo .

Park Jong-Su recognised Jin-Woo first and formed a bright smile .

"Oh! You're here . "

Jin-Woo got up from his seat and asked them .

"Who are you?"

"Ah, where are my manners?"

Park Jong-Su hurriedly walked up closer and extended his distribute for a gentlemanly handshake .

"I'm Park Jong-Su, the Master of the Knight Order . "

Jin-Woo nodded his head in acceptance . Indeed, he thought he had seen this man's face from somewhere before . albeit he wasn't all that interested, he'd still recognise a Master of 1 of the five major Guilds in South Korea . Such a man would constantly crop up in news and in television shows, in any case .

However, the Knight Order was a serious Guild based within the city of Busan, so . . . .

After that brief introduction, Jin-Woo could only tilt his head in confusion .

"By the way, what brings the representatives from the Knight Order to Seoul like this, if i'll ask?"

"Ahh, the thing is . . . . "

Park Jong-Su hesitated slightly before exchanging a few of glances with Jeong Yun-Tae . With some difficulty, he opened his mouth .

"We got assigned a reasonably big shot among the rank A Gates, and . . . . "

Hesitation disappeared from his eyes soon as he carried on .

"Seong Jin-Woo Hunter-nim, you will not regret it from hearing us out, that much I assure you . Would you mind taking a while out of your day and hear what I even have to say?"


[Citizens cowering in fear at the super-large Gate appearing before the Gwang-An-ri's coastline . . . . ]

[The Hunter's Association, still deliberating on the raid permit . ]

[Will the Knight Order Guild hand over on the raid of Gwang-An-ri's Gate?]

[Will the nightmare of Jeju Island repeat itself?]

Park Jong-Su picked one out of the various online news articles then , played the video clip embedded in it .

- Hey, check out that . Over there . Are you filming this?

- Uh, uh .

- Wow, how is that even possible? How can a Gate be that huge?

The video footage, obviously taken by a civilian, contained the crowd's scared voices as its BGM . But, that was understandable – the Gate within the video was just nonsensically overlarge . it had been taller than a ten-story building, even .

This particular Gate was so big that it managed to terrify even those citizens who were now just about numbed by the smaller Gates shooting up almost everywhere all of sudden lately .

"The size of a Gate and its ranking don't always line up, but . . . . "

Park Jong-Su ended the video playback and further explained himself .

"As befitting its nonsensical size, it is also apparently busy dumping out a huge amount of magic energy also . "

Jin-Woo's eyes began gleaming from this rather interesting piece of stories .

"Is it a rank S?"

"We've been told that it hasn't reached the rank of 'unable to measure', but slightly below the edge , apparently . It's alleged to be the most important Gate to ever appear in Busan . "

Meaning, although it had been nominally a rank A, it had been far closer to being a rank S, instead .

'If that is the case, I can expect a good little bit of experience points, can't I?'

In contrary to Jin-Woo's heart quietly gearing up to pump even faster, Park Jong-Su's voice sounded quite bitter as he carried on .

"As you'll see from those headlines, the Association doesn't want to issue us the raid permit . "

"Is it because it'll be too dangerous?"

"Our Guild lacks a rank S Hunter, as you would possibly have heard . From the attitude of the Hunter's Association, they can not trust us to urge the work done . "

Park Jong-Su stopped talking there and sneaked a look at Jin-Woo .

"If you're still checking out a Guild to hitch , then how about . . . . . ?"

Before Park Jong-Su had the prospect to end his sentence, Jin-Woo pointed at the duvet of a file lying on the highest of the council table .

One could quite clearly see the title written on the upper half the duvet .

[List of applicants for the Guild founding member spot]

Park Jong-Su embarrassedly scratched the rear of his head and nodded once .

"Aha . . . . "

And thereupon , Park Jong-Su's hope-against-hope attempt at reeling Jin-Woo to the Knight Order Guild went down the drain . therein case, it had been time to urge to the meat of the story .

"The elite Hunters of our Knight Order are in no way inferior compared to those from the Hunters Guild . It's just that we do not have a rank S who can lead our rank As . That's all . "

They had done swell until now , but 'anything' could happen during this particular raid . just in case that worried 'anything' happens, they definitely needed the presence of the top-ranked Hunter .

Just one rank S Hunter would be enough to reverse any situation .

Right now, there was no got to look for one from afar . Because, he was sitting right here .

Just as the Hunters of the Korean team were facing complete and utter annihilation, this young man appeared out of nowhere and overturned things all by himself . Such a person was sitting right ahead of him .

More than that, now that he could see Hunter Seong Jin-Woo up close . . . . albeit they were an equivalent Hunters, this man simply instilled trust and confidence in others .

'An autograph . . . . If I ask him, will he give me one?'

Suddenly, Park Jong-Su could understand where the Healer Jeong Ye-Rim was coming from, back when she asked him to urge a minimum of an autograph albeit Seong Jin-Woo said no to the thought of cooperation .

"Is there something on my face?"

"Oh, no . Not in the least . "

Park Jong-Su smiled and waved his hand about before carrying on .

"Actually, i think that we'll get the raid permit for this Gate if you opt to cooperate with our assault team, Hunter-nim . "

Jin-Woo crossed his arms and leaned against the rear of his chair . Before his pondering could get any deeper, though, Park Jong-Su hurriedly added on .

"Of course, we'll definitely confirm to not treat you poorly . "

With a smile still etched on his face, he pulled out the prepared contract .

"We will fork over 20% of the revenue generated from this dungeon . "

He was saying that one among the main Guilds was prepared to submit two-tenths of the potential take advantage of a Gate to a freelancer . Now that was an unimaginable offer for a daily Hunter .

Now typically, a rank S Hunter would only commend around one-tenth of the general revenue when an outsized Guild raided a dungeon . But the Knight Order was offering up double of that norm . As Park Jong-Su had said, this certainly wasn't a 'poor' treatment by any stretch of the imagination .

Unfortunately, Jin-Woo's thoughts were a touch different .

"Fifty-fifty split . "

Park Jong-Su's hand flinched momentarily because it was close to pull out a pen that was alleged to help Jin-Woo sign the contract .

"If you comply with consider me not as a freelancer but as a Guild, then I shall cooperate with you . "

Jin-Woo made sure that declaration was heard loud and clear .

An earthquake erupted within Park Jong-Su's eyes at the suggestion of splitting the revenue in half .

'Keu-heuk . . . !'

However, he did not have any means to return out as strongly as Jin-Woo here . it had been not an exaggeration to mention that the fate of his Knight Order Guild trusted this raid .

Meanwhile, Jin-Woo was inwardly clicking his tongue .

'I mean, one-fifth is simply not on, don't you think that so?'

He wasn't trying to take advantage of the urgent situation the Knight Order Guild found themselves in . But, when calculated from all possible angles, the foremost sensible ratio of splitting the loot was 50:50 .

'Even if they're the elites of the Knight Order, are they nearly as good as my Shadow Soldiers?'

Either in number or maybe in quality, they were incomparable . Not only that, his side even included a rank S Hunter, too . If the commission received for all that potential was measly 20%, then that was nearly as good as working for free of charge .

Was there a reason why he should hand over on what was rightfully his when each side were making an easy deal within the name of mutual benefit? Besides, Jin-Woo also didn't want to lower his own worth, as well .

"In that case, how about 40 to 60 . . . . . "

"Apologies, but I'm not trying to barter with the Knight Order Guild here . "

"Does that mean you will not accept anything but 50:50 split?"

Instead of a verbal answer, Jin-Woo nodded once as his reply .

'Groan . . . . '

Park Jong-Su fell into deep thought .

'I thought things would compute easily enough because he's still young and appears friendly, but I see now that he's no pushover . '

But, that made sense . He was someone that not even the combined might of South Korea's rank S Hunters could defeat .

Park Jong-Su was trying to feature such a Hunter to his assault team . He suddenly realised that this young man's demand won't be as outlandish because it sounded initially .

'No, that's not right . '

Park Jong-Su shook his head .

An outlandish demand?

If the opposite party decided to return out hard and unforgiving, then ditch 50:50, he'd have demanded 80% of the loot for himself, instead . no matter what, the one within the bind wasn't Hunter Seong Jin-Woo during this situation .

The losses to the Knight Order after abandoning on this raid would be too enormous to even properly take a guess . But, what would this young man lose in return?

Absolutely nothing in the least .

Actually, this was an equivalent thing as this young man unwillingly being dragged into the negotiation table by the opposite party . But then, he was only demanding half the share, so wasn't he being quite considerate here?

'Is that all?'

If this deal does undergo , then the Knight Order would be removing the foremost trustworthy policy in South Korea , otherwise referred to as Seong Jin-Woo .

Inexplicably, Park Jong-Su recalled what Jeong Yun-Tae told him yesterday .

["Hyung-nim . If that thing seems to be a Red Gate, then we'll all die needless to say . "]

However, what if Hunter Seong Jin-Woo was accompanying them? This young man didn't even bet an eyelid as he faced off against thousands of rank S monsters .

And, didn't Park Jong-Su personally confirm how the ants of Jeju all ended up?

'Right, that happened, didn't it?'

Only now did he remember that the person liable for wiping all those ants out was sitting right ahead of him .

Gulp .

Dry saliva painfully slid down Park Jong-Su's throat .

He witnessed together with his own two eyes the geographical area crammed with massacred ants, but here he was, busy yapping on about 20 to 80 split with the person responsible .

'Yup, the rude one was actually me, wasn't it?'

Park Jong-Su finally admitted to his oversight . And then, he became deeply grateful for Jin-Woo's gracious counteroffer .

However, being grateful would need to wait .

The offer from the opposite side meant that he'd be taking a step back, so reciprocally , he needed to require something away also if the fairness of the deal was to be reached .

So, then . What should he do now?

After a lengthy bout of deep deliberation, Park Jong-Su cautiously raised his voice .

"Alright, we'll accept . reciprocally . . . . "

"In return?"

"Seong Jin-Woo Hunter-nim, are you able to combat the boss monster by yourself?"
