This is the manhwa adaptation, published online by KakaoPage since March 2018, of the South Korean light novel of the same name written by Chugong written from 2016 to 2018 for a total of 13 volumes plus an extra independent from the main story.

The manwha was then transposed on paper by D&C Media and in May 2022 the seventh volume was launched. The eighth is expected for July 20th.

The “Gate”, a mysterious portal that connects the human world to that of terrible monsters, puts the lives of human beings at risk. People with special powers, the "hunters", fight to oppose them. Sung Jinwoo is very weak, with no special skills, and is listed as a "level E" hunter. Despite this, he tries his best to carry out his task and pay for his mother's medical bills ... But one day, following an inexplicable event, Jinwoo begins to develop his powers ... May he become an unbeatable hunter of " level S "? An unmissable read for all fans of fantasy adventures, magical fights to the death and exciting twists!

By manhwa we mean the medium of comics and cartoons in the Korean language whose influence is strongly based on classical Asian art and in particular on Chinese art. Italian publishers have been trying for some time now to introduce the medium to the market on a par with manga, not earning the same profit.
