Chapter 160 of the series saw Jin-Woo defeat the Plague Monarch, only to get attacked rather fatally by the Beast Monarch later on. The upcoming chapter would explore his fate post this attack, and fans are expecting him to use his self-heal ability and recover from the attack, given that he just leveled up recently. His chances at survival are further amplified by the fact that he has the Holy Water of Life at his disposal, which can heal him completely as long as he isn’t dead.
Given that Jin-Woo’s father is also a hunter who has leveled up, fans are predicting his arrival at the scene in order to save his son. There are also indications that Jin-Woo may succeed in recruiting the Plague Monarch’s subjects as his shadow soldiers post his recovery, thereby exponentially increasing his chances of succeeding in battle.
