My Desertion Would Be Faster Than Heros’ Obsession


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

I’ve took the role of ‘that person’ who passed away long ago, someone who bears a striking resemblance to her.

In a reverse harem fantasy novel set against a military backdrop, the title “Four Crazy Guys Obsessing Over Me,” or simply “F4,” unfolds. The narrative centers around the protagonist’s first love and former comrade who descended into madness following their demise, now fixated on the female lead.

However, as the one who has taken on the position of ‘that person,’ I enjoy certain privileges. Could it be that my fate involves facing death? Alternatively, survival might lead to a twist in the romantic plot, with me becoming the object of obsession instead of the female lead. Personally, I’m not inclined towards being the center of such fixation. But then…

“Hey, get your act together.”

“The loser falls behind and gets left behind!”

“These fools need to snap out of it! Can’t they get their act together?”

Romance is nowhere in sight; instead, the harsh reality of the real K-military awaits me!

Before I can fully escape this predicament, I had hoped that the male leads would become obsessed with me. However, this apocalyptic world consistently shatters my expectations. To worsen matters, it appears that the male leads are gradually losing their sanity in this chaotic world.

What’s the only way to break free from this absurd exploitation? Naturally, it’s through a revolution! You corrupt imperial scoundrels!

I read the first 5 chapters in the original language and everything is fine, I really like it. I'm glad they translated it, please give it a try. I don't know what else to say since I have read little, but the narration is good and keeps a good pace, its description was what got me so hooked in the first place. I think this will be one of the novels to which I will be waiting for a chapter with hawk's eyes, I'm already going that way.

Truely good. I can not guess which way the story will go. Sometime hardcore military, sometime hardcore comedy or some romance mix in. But overtime it show some parody to rofan (romantic fantasy) gerne. I like reading K-novel romantic fantasy gerne so this is super funny and entertaining for me. Don't let those 7 chapters deceive you, 1 chapter is super long like 10 chapters for web novel.

Okay so! I actually really like this novel it’s one of my favorites now but I feel like they took like 5 chapters and squished it all into one chapter. I almost didn’t read this because it had so little chapters. Of course I read it otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this right now, this is great! I feel like the romance is more natural than others even though their “villains” or at least it feels like that’s what their implying they seem more like friends? I don’t really know... more>> but it’s nice. I dunno why they listed Caron as a male lead when it’s more like a sibling thing but oh well! To be honest it feels like the MC spends 3/4 of her time with side characters other than the male leads though not that I mind at all. It’s nice seeing the parts of the original otome game because it feels like I get more info that way. Anyways this is a really nice novel I totally recommend it everybody I shared it to enjoyed it as well! <<less

It's a funny story so far. The seven chapters translated by Pink Muffin Translations may seem few but they are based on the novel chapters. If you want to read ahead with MTL (e.g. Booktoki), start at chapter 69. That's the start of the next 'novel chapter'.

The MC is cursing all the time but is very relatable as well. She isn't overpowered and tries really hard to survive and adapt. Her soft and nice personality hardens slowly through many sad or hard experiences, yet she still cares for the people... more>> around her.

So far all male leads have appeared. Male Lead #1 and Male Lead#2 have already fallen for the MC however, since she was tricked too many times in the beginning by her ropan delusions, she just glosses over it. XD

Male Lead #4 has more of a brother-sister relationship with the MC and it looks like it will stay that way. He is definitely crazy but listens well.

Even though Male Lead #3 has appeared fairly early, we don't know his thoughts so far. MC thinks of him as an outwardly nice but inwardly black villain, it's quite funny since he seems to be the most normal out of the bunch. I hope he gets more screen time.

Male Lead #2 is an elitist who follows EVERY rule and regulation but is actually really nice. Many trainees are afraid of him because of his cold appearance so seeing the MC not afraid gets him interested. His love for her develops slowly yet the moment he realizes his feelings, he tries to show them and lets slowly go of his obsession with rules and principles.

Male Lead #1 falls for the MC the fastest. He is the obsessive type the MC wanted in the beginning to escape the military. At first, no one can read his expressions including the MC but after a traumatic experience together, the MC starts to understand his moods. He isn't overbearing so far but the original shows signs of an imprisonment ending if he loses his shit.

All in all, I would say give it a try. There are some things I dislike hence the four stars but I will probably continue anyway since I liked the story nonetheless. :-) <<less

For a starter, this novel is a military hard-core, I didn't know what I got myself into until I read the 7 available chapters. You will be taken with the protagonist to experience all the harsh seniors to exist and how much desperate each one of the characters are to desert. I too was so excited, that I started to keep count of the discharge date. The discrimination of the empire was definitely one of the things that made me scream, revolution and guillotine but the ending was acceptable. I... more>> would have rather they created a new kingdom, gather all the Archons and place them there, yet their life at the village was nice and calm. The unity between the characters, whether they were a senior or junior, maybe enemies will all come down to form a beautiful circle of unified adults. I think it was a good read and certainly enjoyable, as it was equiped with the humorous comedy of the characters. I don't think I cared much for the romance scenes rather than the funny ones, the ML was as crazy as FL so it was good, although I might warn you for a potential hard second lead syndrome. <<less

Gonna start this review with a small language lesson for new readers/those suffering with the term "ropan" (because frankly, I was the same). Ropan, or better to say in English, rofan, stands for romance + fantasy. I don't know if this term exists for CN/JP novels, but in Korean there is no 'f' consonant, and it's usually replaced with 'p'/'ㅍ'. So the entire word in Korean is pronounced '로판'. Hope that clears up confusion for anyone that's about to read this! Now a bit more into the review:

Lots of potential... more>> in terms of plot and character development for the MC. At first I thought she was going to be a weak protagonist, but I feel like there's a mystery about her that I can't quite put my finger on (e.g. The crazed eyes, forgetting about Earth, synchronizing into the world like when she picked up a gun). That's just a hunch I have, so I'm not 100% sure. Anyways, TLDR is that the plot is promising!

Also ch5 had me rofl, those Northern Duke and system window references gave me a good chuckle 🤣 <<less

I tried to read it coz it has good ratings and popular on kakaopage but lo and behold. It's a mediocre novel. The only thing that it makes special is because of the military plot.

I don't get why the FL is gasping for air and already feel exhausted during her training when the author gave her this line from the start:

'Come to think of it, this body... I’ve never been physically exhausted and I’ve never been short of energy... ’

What's the purpose of that line anyway if the author will... more>> make her weak during her training period?

There are some cringey parts too especially the sweet conversation between the FL and ML.

Not my cup of tea. <<less

So far it has a lot of potential. The story is different than your typical korean romance fantasy stories and takes place in the military. The chapters are a long read, but never failed to keep my engagement. There are actual stakes in the novel, and the main character isn't instantly OP and the ML (s) ? Seem to fall for the MC very naturally. I will be looking out for more chapters.
