I Picked Up the Second Male Lead After the Ending


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I transmigrated inside the novel of my favorite character, the second male lead.

A tsundere who listens to all the words of the female lead while grunting, with a straight forward personality, and a handsome face.

Matching all my preferences, he was even single after the ending.

Nice! I’ll pick up the second male lead!

However, I overlooked one thing…

The tsundere, who had been abandoned by the female lead blackened, and had become a terrifying man!

“Get lost.”

…I, Is it safe for me to pick up the second male lead?

This is a very excellent read. One of the Korean romance drama that doesn't have a ridiculous plot storyline and troublesome family drama plus original characters being antagonist.

The drama mainly focused on the development between the MC and ML as they both seemed to be struggling with love.

I would like to put this out that these characters don't fall in love easily, in fact they have this nice process during the story where they slowly grow.

It has this bitter sweet feeling. And the MC while she is a very sweet... more>> and kind but she has a humane moment where she struggles and personally I felt like giving her support because of that.

Like I said the drama is surprisingly not crazy perhaps that's pretty much almost what I encounter when I browse the internet. Which is nice.

I hope you guys don't get frustrated with the ML though he has this moments where he can be pretty oblivious.


or denial


It's good. And also kinda sucks cause you will encounter a lot of desserts here. Warning haha be sure to have your cravings aroused. <<less

This story make me uncomfortable.
I can't understand how the idea of an obsessively clingy stalker who would end up with nothing but a restraining order in real life could be applauded and tagged with cute and innocuous sounding adjectives live "sweet" "persistent" "strong-willed" "real" etc. I don't know who conceived this ridiculous notion that if you force someone to accept you clinging to them 24x7 (especially by using your superior social standing that they can't say No to) for long enough, they'll invariably like you too..... more>> Their misery/pain from the raw heartbreak and the obvious and extreme discomfort definitely don't matter cause everything's gonna be solved with the power of love (and plot🙄) And/OR they're just being dense/a tsundere and will definitely thank you in the long run for your persistence! This is a classic "overbearing CEO/President forcing you into a relationship" plot but in genderbend. It's like this cliched plot suddenly became novel once the harasser is dressed up as a cute young girl who knows how to make desserts.

What angst?? I can only see a delusional girl being slapped back to reality by facts. But of course by then the ML's already ensnared and softened by power of love~ And then there's a happy ending at the end of it all summoned forth and sustained by the power of plot ✨
Not my cup of tea, won't recommend it, but you can give it a try if it's your thing. <<less

Idiotic superficial love, Female Lead is someone who can't mind her own business, there is a lot of angst but she brought it all on herself. Periodt.

Ofcourse a happy ending. Not my cup of tea, but you can give it a try.

Pretty good novel. A bit masochistic, but not as masochistic as My fiance is in love with my little sister (super tragic).

Cried a bit at the part where the ML saved the OG FL first instead of the FL. I know that it’s because he saw her first but that probably must’ve hurt the FL so much.

I like that the OG FL is rooting for them, but I don’t know. The way she’s interfering looks like it’s making it hard for the ML to move on from her. He still... more>> keeps on bringing up the past. I guess he’s not over her yet (?)

FL is in love with this guy who is in denial and is gutless. I pity the FL... I’m at the part where she leaves the Duke’s place and he doesn’t stop her because he thinks she deserves better than him (which is true haha). Novel isn’t finished yet, I think. I hope it takes on another direction and she doesn’t end up with the Duke. I hope she moves on and falls in love with another guy who will treasure her. <<less

This is the first time super that I feel super uncomfortable about the story.... I have many reasons why this makes me uncomfortable but I can't translate it in english because not my native language (I can understand English and I might give this a decent review but not to day folks! I have something to do anyway) something about MC makes me feel super weird, awkward, uncomfortable

Ok so I haven’t read all of it (only the spoilers) but I don’t get those who are bashing the FL for pursuing the ml. Y’all like 2nd MLs in other stories but as soon as it is a girl chasing a guy- (who’s not tied to anyone btw, , unlike in other stories where the 2nd mls always go after the FL even though the FL already likes someone) -you guys are quick to get angry at her.
