The plot of Solo Leveling
For most of the series, the show has a basic plot with stronger enemies coming one after another and the protagonist grows stronger after every battle.
However, what makes this show unique and exciting is the incredible world-building, the different levels of gates appear with monsters of varying difficulty levels for hunters (humans with innate special abilities) to clear and earn money.
The protagonist of the series is Sung Jin-Woo, he is considered the weakest hunter in all of Korea because he constantly comes close to dying after each encounter with high-level monsters, yet he still goes because he has bills to pay and care for his sick mother.
However, things take a drastic turn when a mysterious S-Rank door appears inside a D-Rank dungeon, and his party decides to take a go at it. After the event, he wakes up to find a strange quest log indicating that he must work hard to win rewards and avoid punishment.
