Why Was Solo Leveling Manhwa Delayed?
Solo Leveling Chapter 169 was supposed to release last week on October 7, 2021. However, the chapter was abruptly halted from the release on the due date. Since then, fans have been searching the internet for answers in regards to the delay. It was only after the date passed by that the official Twitter handle of D&C Comics addressed the hiatus. The publisher noted that author Chugong is currently unhealthy and under rest. Thus, the next chapter of the Solo Leveling Manhwa has pushed further ahead.
The note also revealed the solid release date of the next outing. It also said that within two days of the release, the English scans would also come out.
What to Expect From Chapter 169?
The next chapter of Solo Leveling Manhwa is set to deal with the conflict between the Monarchs and the Rulers. According to Jin Woo, the war between the two is already on the verge of breaking out.

Later, he went back to camps to address the soldiers. He said that even though not all of them could get along very well, this was the war that was against the survival of the humans. The Gateway of Tokyo had opened up, and the armies may march upon them any day. Thus, his men must learn to settle their difference and come to terms with the realities of life and death.
