Chapter 156 of Solo Leveling is right around the corner. Fans were expecting the next chapter to release on June 17, but the series has been delayed. Solo Leveling has undoubtedly come a long way since 2016 when the fantasy manhwa by Korean artist Chu-gong first saw the light of day. Nowadays, it's one of the most popular ongoing Korean fantasy works among those that are currently ongoing.
The manhwa follows Sung Jin-woo, the lowest-level monster hunter in his world, who almost dies at some point, but then reawakens as a warrior with access to stats, inventories, and levels that will allow him to grow infinitely stronger.
If you're excited about the newest Solo Leveling chapter, keep reading. In the sections below, we've gathered all you need to know about Solo Leveling Chapter 156, from the newest chapter's release date and time to possible spoilers so that you can catch up first!
Solo Leveling Chapter 156 Release Date
Solo Leveling chapters are released weekly. Talks about a possible hiatus have been around for some time, culminating in the present 2-week hiatus. Therefore, the release date for Solo Leveling Chapter 156, titled "Final Moments" will be Thursday, July 1 at midnight, KST. In different time zones, including the US, Canada, and Europe, this translates to Wednesday, the 30th of June - about a week from now.
Solo Leveling Chapter 156 was set to be released on Thursday, June 17 at midnight, Korean Standard Time. Delays related to the creator's health, mean that the release was pushed back by two weeks, making July 1 the release date. Below, you can find how this translates in different timezones. Bear in mind that the process might be a little longer due to translation issues.

Eastern Time: 11:00 AM (June 30)
British Time: 4:00 PM (June 30)
For all the chaos that ensued after a mysterious gate or portal appeared in the sky above Seoul, Chapter 155 was generally heartwarming, satisfying fans' romantic cravings; Cha Hae-In and Jin-Woo finally got to spend time together. The two spent what they think might be their final moments together, as they don't know what will come to pass. We're expecting the next chapters to be much more serious and violent, with little romance, if at all; up to the fans to decide if this is for the best or not!
Meanwhile, despite this romantic break for us readers, people are still highly worried about the gate. Jin Ah, who was very upset when she first noticed it, two episodes earlier, wonders if she and her mother should evacuate, but her mother believes that if they should die, they had better die at home. Eventually, the two come to believe that Sung Jin-Woo will protect them; already from Chapter 155, he's seen watching the incident from above. We believe that Chapter 156 will be concerned with his attempts to protect his family.
Solo Leveling Chapter 156 Where to Read Legally Online
Solo Leveling can be read online legally on TappyToon or Tapas Media! If you're interested in a print copy, Volume 1 of the manhwa is available in English through Yen Press and the rest might follow soon enough.
Solo Leveling Chapter 156 Release Date Delay Explained
At this point, fans are likely worried about the delay of the newest Solo Leveling chapters. It seems that due to health problems faced by the creator, the release date had to be pushed back twice, meaning that the new Chapter will be released only a week from now. While this is a bit disappointing for fans, it's important that art workers are able to take breaks and take care of themselves when they need to. Hopefully, the new, July 1 release date will be the one that stays.
It's currently not known whether or not the next chapters will go on as normal or be delayed, but we hope the latter will not be the case.
