The Novel’s Extra


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

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.

He had become his novel’s extra, a filler character with no importance to the story.

The only clue to escaping is to stay close to the main storyline.

However, he soon finds out the world isn’t exactly identical to his creation.

At first, it was fun reading the story fevelopment where the MC knows everything. But over the course of time, I can't help but become bored with the repetitive sequence where he is a know-it-all..

It becomes interesting once more, since the story is flowing towards a direction that differs from the main one, the one that he wrote.

It's good and interesting story at the begging I would say it's probably the best novel I read. MC is not explaining all his powers to first people meets, girls are not throwing them self to the MC, slow affection forming from other people towards MC, the moderate "I don't care about you" feeling from MC were all very refreshing.

In the later stages especially in the current arc I really started questioning the MC decisions towards the so called "friends", "companions" and "allies". Even if you don't trust them you... more>> should still throw some information at people; I'm not saying to tell everything but some of the information should be shared with others. They will probably trust MC after all this time they understood that he has information that nobody else have. I'm not sure if it's the translations fault but the MC feels so rude with everybody he talks with (especially in later the current arc) that it started to annoy me. The latest arc story is really good but the action of the MC in some cases are like of a villain in forming (maybe that is what actually will happen?). One of the thought it crossed by mind about the latest arc is that the author started to lengthen the novel unnecessary. So many things would have been resolved if he just musters of a bit of courage to talk with people; you can be the worst talker in the world but the MC feels like on whole different dimension of not able to talk about important things. <<less

Great series, can't wait for more to be released. Skeptical at first because the MC knows what will happen in the future but I was glad that it was changed when there's another one behind the scenes. (Sounds Villain for me but nvrmnd that.) Kudos for the translator for translating this another masterpiece.

One of my favourite novel, due to it's fresh idea and detailed emotion explanation for its characters.

The MC isn't op with a boring gift, but the MC is knowledgable, thus finding new ways to tackle a problem.

Romance isn't forced where they bump and make babies. Romance is realistic and can be understood by readers.

All in all, it's a good novel. Try it out!

The novel itself quite good to read. The only problem for me to continue reading this story came from the interaction between MC n one of the female lead (the one he design from his love interest in real life). This female lead believe that MC was in love with her and the MC let the misunderstanding continue to the point all of their friend believe it, basically he never make it clear that he was not love her, well he was but the conviction not strong enough to make... more>> them believe it even I was not believe it.

At first it was quite amusing to see their ineraction, but from time to time their intercation make me cringe, it's not I don't like romance but I hate romance when it change the MC. <<less

This is a very good novel. The premise being thrown into the novel is not new, but it makes up for it with original elements. The Writing is very well done, when it seems like there will be a cliche part it often will deviate from it and surprise you. Build drama, action, and relationships in a believable way. The MC doesn't automatically obtain the whims of the girls, but slowly earns it. This novel is not afraid to pull punches either, there will be times when the reader might... more>> be praying for an out, a sudden ass-pull, but it goes through with it. It seems My favorite novels here are Korean, something about the writing styles just fit I guess haha. I would recommend if looking for a more alpha version of the Japanese MC, and a fun supernatural story <<less

this is a very interesting take on the whole 'transported into a mob character in a novel' scenario, and not just because the MC was the main Author. Just the fact that there is another author who keeps making changes to what's supposed to happen is fun enough, but the MC's reactions crack me up. Of course, now things are getting more serious and as the story continues things are getting more complex and I just hope the writing quality remains as good as it is now.

also, it says something... more>> about how good the character development is for all the side characters that readers seem to have forgotten that he's trapped in a book at the moment and have already divided into camps based on their favorite ships. I'm not surprised he tried his best to keep his distance as the story has progressed, though I think he's more invested in certain people than he intended to be. I'm very curious about what happens after the school arc ends and am hoping that the actual ending is neither rushed nor rage-inducing like half the other Korean novels I've read lately. <<less

Oh I mis clicked I should have rate it 4.5 stars as I was having difficulty remembering all the Kim names.

Aside from that I have read to the latest part, I had read a lot of novels from CN and this will be the first for me from KR. I give it a two thumbs up!

The concept and execution of the story is wonderful for most of the story. The characters don't feel bland when they're active, the suspense and mystery is maintained despite the MC being a walking spoiler, and overall the charm and pacing of the novel is good. I have to praise the author for inter-playing what the MC already knows with what actually happens that is separate from the story. The writer conveys the thoughts and emotions of the characters with great clarity that help the world become alive. In addition,... more>> the story is handled mostly well throughout the beginning of the story. Also, I "liked" (explain quotes later) how the author handled the multiple plot lines. Things that genuinely surprised me (big warning, it's a list of five, you were warned) :

The time and location Evandel's Seed hatched, killing a mafia boss who wasn't djinn, Killing of Chayun's (did I get that right) brother, the aftermath and effect the death of Chayun's brother had on everyone, the existential crisis the MC had with the doppelganger encounter


Various other misc. comments: I liked the length of the chapters. Each of the chapters are nicely packed. I liked the contrast between creator and creations.

However. Big however. As the story approaches the

Tower of Wishes

arc, the power creep ramps the heck up. Even in the

"characters travel to the past"

arc, the story shows signs of breaking down. Unfortunately, with the increasing power creep, the strain on the focus of the characterization begins to break down. Instead of being grounded in "what would happen if I were in my own novel, " the story is slowly trending towards the usual "power isekai here to save the day/ruin the day." Not saying that it is that the whole story, but I could feel the story slowly, slowly..., gravitating towards that from the

characters travel to the past


Even when he receives the laptop, my suspicions immediately popped up

Other than power creep, the author has some points where the story threads just become unmanageable. I like the numerous amounts of plot threads, but they sometimes are left neglected, untied. With those threads dangling above my head, I was often kept uncomfortable. Yeah, it's funny for the first few chapters it was introduced, but after 5, 10, or even 15 chapters, they become annoying (and the chapters are LOOOOONG). I lose focus on the main story because of I'm worrying about the small things rather than the important things.

I mustn't downplay the quality of the story too much. I genuinely enjoyed myself while reading this book. However, far warning, if you're the obsessive reader type (like me) and don't like the things in the criticism, it might be better to resist the temptation and not start this book... If you're looking for a good fiction book, this read is a no brainer. Take it. You should not hesitate to read it.

(Though we're not really supposed to talk about it...) Those who dread bad translations, fear not. The translators did an excellent job in their work. Although there are a few places of weirdness, the quality of the translation is high. (This does not impact the rating of the novel) <<less

For me.. This novel is good

(note: I am someone who would rather have an OverPowered MC.. {As long there are *challenges* in the story} than having a weakling for an mc)

the MC wasn't overpowered too much.. Well, few incredible card alright (luck/gift/special power) but he was no more than a weakling even with these..😅

but if you hate a weakling for an MC, dont worry.. There is a good prospect for MC to be so strong (if he continued to grow, and acquiring more power).. Well, the problem is,... more>> the VILLAINs in the story are very very very strong too haha

but that makes a challenge in the story, he always barely make it, in each of his struggle. The the help of *luck stat* is not overly unreasonable so it doesn't completely ruin the 'challenge' that I want,

at least, I enjoyed the growth of the MC on this story.. It gave enough dose of sense of accomplishment wkwk <<less
