Solo Leveling (also known as I level up Alone) can easily be considered to be one of the biggest Korean Webtoon. We all are aware of how hyped up it is, and now with the end of the Manhwa, fans can’t wait to see what is in store for them.
In the U. S., Solo Leveling is supposed to be made into a drama. A videogame based on Solo Leveling’s intellectual property rights (IP) has also been developed to dominate the international market. On the 13th, the much more popular Korean webtoon ‘I Alone Level Up/ Solo Leveling,’ which is owned by DNC Media and Kakao Entertainment, would be made into a videogame and a series, as per connected sectors. The videogame will indeed be produced by Netmarble, and also the dramatization will be shot inside the United States instead of Korea by a large production firm.
Solo Leveling has approximately 620 million domestic visits and 6.6 million web novels and webtoons, all from a single IP. This has also been known to identify up to 1.5 million persons every day. Beyond Korea, it is indeed a renowned webtoon in Japan, North America, China, and Southeast Asia, and it is a leader in K-webtoon. In Japan, 1.5 million people have watched I Alone Level Up. A campaign to make Nahonre into anime was submitted on the US internet petition website (change.org) in January, and it received over 180,000 signatures in less than a month. On the first day after its release, the novel topped Amazon’s graphic novel purchases in Brazil as well as Germany.
Fans also had made petitions for MAPPA or Ufotable to animate the manhwa (for more details, check out our article: Will Mappa Animate Solo Leveling?) With all this in store, we can’t help but wonder: what will be the best adaptation of Solo Leveling?
I had been constantly following Solo Leveling Manhwa. Albeit the frustrating end, we cannot deny the fact that the webtoon’s art was marvelous! I feel that an anime adaptation can give justice to the webtoon. I am not a fan of Live-Action adaptation, and honestly, many of my favorite anime were spoiled by their live-action versions (RIP AOT and Death Note). In terms of the game, I have mixed feelings regarding that. I can’t help but wonder how they will try to incorporate the essence of the webtoon in a game (If you know anything more regarding this, do educate me!)
What do you guys think? What will be the best version that can convey about the show? Comment down below!
