Waking up, Kim Hajin finds himself in a familiar world but an unfamiliar body.

A world he created himself and a story he wrote, yet never finished.

    I'm glad that I read the comment section coz I was in the verge of dropping this novel if the Nayun (Or Rachel) ended up being the FL. And at the part where I'm at Nayun was giving off a very FL vibe.

    Im am so satisfied that the MC wouldn't end up with Nayun. All I can see in Nayun is a Sakura character ๐Ÿ˜‘

        Her most cherished brother was killed. Found out the mc was the one who killed him. Mc didn't bother to explain anything and left. She went on a path of vengeance and sorrow... Don't see the comparison bud... I genuinely liked her character and definitely pitied her.

        For that yes, i pitied her condition.What i felt annoyed is not that part. But during the time they were at school. After that event, it is understandable for me.

    DNF!!! Im so disappointed. Im really invested with MC and Chae Nayun then suddenly BAAM! MC is in love with boss, the f*** It came out of nowhere! It doesn't make sense! I hate it! Argh... why? Just why? ... The story is really interesting but...sigh... I'm not gonna finish it.I just can't bear to finish it, sorry. >_<

    Anyone sad that the fl suddenly became the Boss rather than Nayun?? I mean, i guess its fine that they got a happy ending but the way the storyline was proceeding, it clearly showed that Nayun was the fl but then just near the end it suddenly showed signs that the ml was liking Boss. From what ive read, i assumed the emotion he felt toward Boss was like family or an older sister and the way he acted towards Nayun, not being able to remain calm and all, was like one with affection or maybe even with love so i kinda feel messed up with it. I guess this is why people say don't blindly assume things. Welp, guess my ship sinked.

      I'm still at 330 but I can say that I was not sad but kinda disappointed like of feeling? I see Chae Nayun as Sakura from Naruto kind of character, author is trying to put her in the main plot but eventually dismisses her as a whole, like when MC and Nayun finally reunited? And their talk just got pushed back and back and back till he fell in love w/ Boss. I mean, there's so many potential love interests the author keeps on hinting about but what did author do? he made MC witness boss past & after he came back? BOOM! He loves her lol.

        yes the romance plot is really laughable, just what is author thinking to turn out the story like that? i really dont understand, the ending is really a mess

      I feel bad but the MC spent more time with boss. I was shipping the MC with Nayun originally. However, I think the boss was meant for the MC.

        The only reason Kim Hajin ended up with Yi Byul, was becouse when he got feelings for Chae Nayun he was split between staying or going back, simply he was still too scared to get attached so he ended up hurting her badly and regretting it, then he finally stop being a coward and decided to get attached and he fell in love with Yi Byul, the author made so Chae Naun can go to her own world to be happy with the regression stone

It was good minus the ending and the romance thing. Hajin and Byul barely had any moments until suddenly Byul liked him, followed by Hajin liking her. Good stuff though.

It definitely different from trash Count. Cale or Omniscent, Dokja. This story has their own way that make you want to keep reading them. Trust ne๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ Although the story pace did not made me curious like TC (which it only took 3 days for 500 cahpters), but this story made me curious for the 2nd season. Like---another quest/writer continuing Hajin story, allowing him to get back his old-self. Since the ending is too realistic, it remind me how bittee a truth world is. Like--how Naeyun action will lead. But since its an open-ending and possible of regression, I will take the ending I would prefer and creating situation I liked with. But all we kbow, they all still together. Sahyuk able to contact Hajin is enough. Bell that will able to be within reach with the help of that magician is enough. Any possible ending I want, I can create the.. Thank you to the author and translators and amy people that included to bring this piece readable globally ๐Ÿ˜Š

Great story, but such a bad ending. I don't know what the author was thinking after chapter 160 onwards. Honestly great concept and I really enjoyed the first 150 chapters. But the romance progression, as well as so many unused storylines and plot points that was set up, makes me feel very unsatisfied with the ending. Also the ending itself is quite bad, so much better way to end would be for the MC to forget that he was a novel and allow him to continue living in the world as he was. Also, why are other reviewers spoiling the story in the review are you guys stupid??

I really enjoyed this novel overall, the concept was fun and enjoyable, I liked the main character who was adapting to this new world and slowly accepting the world as his own, growing connections he didn't want to lose. I loved his growth and total badassery during the process. I super loved his interactions with his MC- I'd totally ship them!

Personally (no spoilers), I felt some plot points were under utalized, especially nearing the end of the story, I loved who he ended up with love-interest wise, but wish that the "living as a family together" toward the end was a little more in depth. Also I didn't like that at the end his relationship with a certain character was basically erased.
Also was not a fan of Chae Nayun. Sure she's strong but she's also... Annoying?

Anywho, this is purely my opinion- it's impossible for the author to please everyone~!

TLDR: Really enjoyable read, Ship KH and KS, personally didn't love the ending.

I came in with minimal expectations after binge-reading other web novels, but I got hooked pretty quickly. The overall concept of the novel is based similarly to Trash of the Count's Family (TCF), where the main protagonist becomes a side-character. There are moments where others have said that the plot points become pretty predictable even more so than the ending, but it was a nice journey.

Fair warning though, the ending is rather lacking and while it does touch upon most major points, the execution could've been better. It dulls in comparison to the ending that Solo Leveling or SCOG (just barely considering the comedic ending & side stories).

It's worth reading but I dropped it at chapter 344 because the story telling became sloppy and too predictable for my tastes. I would've dropped it earlier but I was really curious about some sub plots that turned out disappointing.

Great start develops into hot mess and forced development. Feels like the author either lacked patience or inspiration which is ironic considering the plot

The way how the author weaves the story is very interesting. It was able to get away from the common pitfalls that destroys a good story by incorporating sudden and unexpected changes/takes to the story. It is true that foreshadows and stuffs does not really exist on this novel that much, but in a sense the novel was able to let the readers themselves experience what could the characters experience (to be played with by the grasp of the writer's plot XD).

I am very satisfied with the novel and its ending . It didn't give me a thought as if it was incomplete or anything of the sort after it ended. For me, this is the most satisfying novel I have read till date.

I liked the story and the plot but still in my opinion there were some development than were a little forced ( like how how KH become friend with KS? They talk to each other for like 5 minutes at best ). And the more it goes on the story became more and more jam-packed without a clear explanation of some arc's end ( like what happened with Vassago in the colosseum? ).
I also wanted to understand better the relationship between dimensions and so on but guess what? nothing. It also remain a mystery how he was forced in his novel ( with what authority? )
The end had a nice start because I liked the fact that everybody forgot him 'cause he wasn't the author anymore but I tough it would be resolved with something like 'a great friendship' or ' someone indebted to' or 'a strong bond' and I was really disappointed to the fact they remember him because the have something to do with Kim Chundong ( like what that has to do with KH existence? ).
To conclude this novel had a great start but an unsatisfying end

I cried a lot when Hajin's existence was denied by the world. I feel how lonely he has been by that time. If I were Hajin, I think I would be commiting suicide. What disappoints me the most is when Suho can't even remember Hajin in the end. Hajin has been the person that helped him the most.

Also, it's sad that people had not known the truth regarding fenrir and black lotus being the same person. They didn't know that this 'shadow hero' is the one that worked the most to fight against the destruction of the world. That made me realize that in the end, he is just treated as a mere extra.
