First created as a novel, the story was then adapted into a Korean comic book format, or manhwa, which is read online by scrolling. This was a necessary step for the hero who keeps progressing. At the beginning of the story, he is just a frail young man with a low E rank among his peers, but he quickly rises through the ranks.
Even though his world is invaded by portals leading to dangerous alternative dimensions, Jinwoo’s strength continues to grow and demands more from him. Viewers eagerly await the hero’s return each week to see him getting into countless troubles. However, episode 5 marks a turning point.
While this mysterious ability has allowed him to survive, it also forces him to push himself in daily quests, imposing a drastic training regime with deadly consequences for failure.

Yet, contrary to Saitama from “One Punch Man,” it’s not just about doing 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, and a 10-kilometer run daily to undergo such a transformation.
So, where is our little Jinwoo? When Jinwoo fulfills the necessary conditions for his daily training or when he defeats the giant serpent in the temporary dungeon in episode 4, he gains skill points. Jinwoo prefers to prioritize placing his new points into strength, a strategy that proves useful for him in episode 4 to survive against the wolves and the serpent.
This results in him gaining muscle and height, as pointed out by his little sister. His face also undergoes changes as a result of his new abilities.
