On the official Twitter account of the Naver Webtoon platform, a promotional video of the resumption of the webtoon written and illustrated by SIU, Tower of God, was posted. While the video lists the resumption for May 16, the official website lists the date for May 17. On the other hand, the resumption in the English division is scheduled for the summer season of 2021 (July-September).
The work went on hiatus indefinitely since the publication of chapter 485 in June 2020. The author had announced in September that he had no intention of resuming the work soon, however, in October he revealed that he had plans to resume it in the middle of September, November. Finally, in December 2020, he indicated that he would extend the break for at least another six months.
The story follows Baam, a boy who spends most of his life trapped under a tower, with young Rachel as his only companion. One day Rachel decides that she can no longer be trapped in the same old life, she always wanted to reach the stars, see them up close and for that, she needs to enter the tower and leave Baam behind.
When Rachel enters the tower and leaves Baam behind, he is resigned and goes after her but does not find her. The tower porter, a strange creature with a Machiavellian smile, informs Baam that Rachel has already gone up, and he goes after her on a great journey.
