I possessed the villain and final boss of the original novel after once complaining about the story.
He is Ki Yoon Jae, the incompetent representative of the gifted guild!

In order to survive without dying immediately, he needs to make an ally. But…

[Let’s predict what will happen if Ha Hyun Seo were to discover that you are not Ki Yoon Jae.]

“So, you’re not him? You’re not Yoon Jae hyung?”

If you reveal that you are possessing the original to your allies, it’s game over.

At long last, I met the main character who gave me a death flag from the original story.

That’s how it was for a year.
But when an unknown gate appeared in Korea, I received a strange skill from God.

[If you have this, you too can become gifted! You can borrow abilities through kissing!]

So… Do you want me to kiss those gifted people? Besides, what’s up with the look in the eyes of the bastard around me?

“Don’t you want to know what my abilities are? How to use them, how they feel…”
“As I’ve always said, I’m on your side. I’ll do whatever you want.”

[No matter what kind of life the player lives, God will watch over you. God bless you!]

Ok, what Iʼll say next is just my point of view, so some may differ with it...
Well, in my opinion, despite having only a few translated chapters, I really enjoyed the novel. The rhythm of the narrative isnʼt very rushed, but not slow either. One thing that I love is the fact that the protagonist isnʼt psychologically very different from ordinary people... Uh, for example, in a dangerous situation, he feels fear and has fainted from the sensation of being faced with an imminent death (since before transmigrating itʼs said that he was someone with a peaceful life), and he has a high sense of self-preservation too. Also, I wouldnʼt say that heʼs someone super solidary, but heʼs not selfish either. I like him because I can identify with him. Thatʼs very important to me. I feel like his personality is realistic.
The MC acts in the same way that I would if I transmigrated (that's right, not all of us are brave, huh).
Finally, the translation also contributes to a better understanding of the story, for which I want to thank the team in charge of this. So far the novel seems to be going well and has a lot of potential. I hope it continues to develop properly in the future.
Oh, and I apologize if I wrote something wrong. Iʼm still learning english.

i am literally too s*upid to understand the plot and im like seven chapters in like omg pls. It's not even like incomprehensible explanation, it's literally just the fact htat my brain can't process shit. Anyways 19/19 I think I like this so far


NOT 19/19.

I'm not that far into this, but all I gotta say is that this is just NOT my tastes. I won't leave a rating review, because I feel like this isn't a bad story I guess, I just don't like ANY of the characters at all,... more>> past the couple girls in here because they're not mindless harem members and rather, literally normal people.

  • I just don't like harems. And the characters of this harem are REALLY uncomfortable to read about.
One of them is childishly possessive and temperamental, the other is like a child who is ALSO possessive over him, another IS his childhood friend who is possessive over him, and the last one is defensively possessive over him and childishly believes he knows what type of character MC should hang out with. I just hate clingy characters who treat others as sort of an object? Or take advantage of their obliviousness, whether they're aware of it or not. Also the way they all come to like him is VERY strange to me.

  • i do not like mc's personality. I just don't.
if you like him, good for you, but I personally can't stand his personality? Honestly, I REALLY love the original villainous host that MC transmigrated into: he seems a lot more complex, independent, and thoroughly steadfast in what type of awful character he was. Meanwhile, this MC is??? Idk. I just can't stand dense characters, and he's really oblivious to the implications of the other people who seem to obsess over him, and he also gives the original villainous character sh*t for putting himself in such an unstable and socially incompetent position, and I'm already biased towards the OG version of him. And I just don't like the fact that he's basically giving him sh*t for how he wants to live his life: if he wants to be a major shithead that nobody likes, let him be that way. It's not like he was doing that to affect you, who are you to call him s*upid for living the way he wanted to? <<less

I just read the early chapters and I know it's too early to rate this novel but I want to get this off my chest.

Ki Yoon Jae is one of the rare few protagonists that I dislike. Mainly it's because of the unpleasant characters that he currently has. He's a coward, s*upid, and overly judgemental. He moans about how he doesn't want this and has a breakdown in the middle of an attack. He's rather short sighted because he expects people who rather hate him will help him return to... more>> his original world if he tells the the truth. He deems the original as s*upid because the original didn't simp over the original protagonist.

I hope he'll have a character arc to fix these, that's why I give it 3 stars instead of lower. I guess I just want to write this review to give a head up about the MC. I know flaws are important in characters but at the moment I'm not enjoying reading this novel. The MC just have the mix of character flaws that I don't enjoy. <<less

I actually really enjoy this. MC is basically just a normal person, the world is interesting and the MLs are constantly drinking vinegar.

But I cant read this. It is impossible to understand, I dont know if its because of the translation or the way it was originally written but it is so difficult to understand what is happening.

who is speaking? Where are we? Whose pov is this? Who the f*ck knows because I sure dont!

Half the time we suddenly teleport scenes in the middle of conversations, and the other half... more>> the characters are stuck in a white void lmao. Not to even mention the conversations that are just dialogue, it reads even worse than a chat roleplay.

I would have loved to have read this, but its impossible without any actual actions or descriptors being present in the novel. <<less

  • I just finished till chapter 52 anddddd well it's pretty good so far??? I like the mc!!! He's smart, sassy at times and has the right amount of empathy while not being too much of a saint. He's not too badass of a character but knows when to take charge when it's necessary. He's pretty much realistic and has fears of death when suddenly transported into another world. Also he's kinda funny. For the love interests.... - the possesive and tsundere character

    -the smiling and mysterious also probably op type

    -the respectful and honest type that'll melt your heart

    -the adorable puppy like type

    I must say my favorite so far is Jung Yi Joon<333 Why? Well cause he's amusing and I'm weak towards characters like him.

    And I just know no matter how hard I root for him he'll never end up with MC cause in most bl harem the MC will most likely end up with the mysterious op type. And well, I guess you could say my preferences are a bit different than the majority huh. Also the pacing of the story is great so far! It's not too fast and not too slow. But, MC being terribly dense does hurt me sometimes. So far I really enjoy the story though I'm not too sure where the direction is going but I'll keep following it to find out!!

Honestly, I don’t even know whats happening. I’m so confused? I feel like I’m missing something? I’m not even sure whats happening, and the plot is a little messy.

I don’t understand it. At all. I applaud anyone who can process what is happening.

I've been binging a lot of BL Korean novels lately and deym this was one good addition to my list. Still not clear on the plot since it's still on the 7th chapter but nevertheless the translation quality is good and so far the plot seems enjoyable for me.

For me, this novel is just alright. I'm not heavily invested in it but I do come back every time there is a new chapter.

A lot of people seem to have an issue with the characters but personally I find them inoffensive. They are a bit two-dimensional but I find their interactions amusing enough that I can forgive it a little. Our main character in particular has some strong moments ... more>>

For example when he tells off his cousin for essentially harassing one of the female characters - he makes some really satisfying remarks.


But of course he has some weaker moments too

to be blunt, he's very dense and it doesn't help that all of the characters essentially baby him all the time.


I did see the shounen ai tag when I started reading but I thought it'd veer more into the ORV direction where there is a lot of action and some dashes of BL but I can quite confidently say it's the opposite

in the latest chapter (31), MC has just gotten the power to 'borrow' someone else's ability by kissing them and of course most of the cast members are male. Also, there isn't really too much action in this story but it has picked up more in the latest chapters.


Overall, I'd say it's a good read if you come into it with lower expectations lol. I still enjoy it enough that I plan to continue reading it but it's definitely not a priority read. <<less

I actually really like it. If you enjoy action fantasy story, something like outer world gate with monsters and hunters, I think you would enjoy this one too. I always wanted to read a BL with a hunter world setting.

MC is not OP, obviously, you can find out after reading the description. He's also oblivious to any romantic advances, of course, that's why he's a harem protagonist. I don't mind it, because that obliviousness is gonna make you wonder if there's gonna be an endgame ML or not. I love... more>> the MLs. They're varied and very fun to read, although some of them are lowkey annoying tbh but they don't show up too often so... whatever I guess. <<less

It's a good story. The MC is more human-like has emotions, knows fear, afraid to die like a true human who came from the 'real world' unlike the 2-d characters around him. Also, as more chapters went by, the MC gets increasingly intelligent and more cunning. Not to mention his fishes literally throwing themselves to him. Lmao the latest chapters are just so funny and fruity

I tried to keep an open mind, but I really can't continue reading.

MC is way too Mary Sue and because the novel is written from MC's perspective, it's agonizing for readers to have to see MC acting oblivious when it comes to the other characters' emotions. And MC acts like he's afraid of being discovered that he's not the original villain but he has no qualms about acting spineless and so different from the original that I highly doubt not a single character has noticed MC is possessing the villain.... more>> The final straw was MC trying to go back to his original home. Is he s*upid or does the author think I'm s*upid? <<less

I was really excited about the synopsis and idea of the story, but I really felt execution was way off the mark.

I'm sure some people will enjoy the story, but to me everything about this story felt childish - it's gotta be written by a high schooler. The characters are pretty one-dimensional typical cliches, relationship developments are shallow where they're falling all over MC right away in seconds, the story pacing is horrible and everything feels like filler to spotlight the meet-cute moment MC somehow wows MLs on first sight... more>> before diving right into a ridiculously dense MC that augments utterly pointless jealous bickering.

MC's character also doesn't feel interesting, I know author was trying to portray realism but it just came off as a boring coward just floating along and gary sue enough to make everyone fall in love with him. <<less

I find this story very interesting. I like the MC and how realistic his reaction is.

Most would find him annoying and/or cowardly due to his action but I think its pretty normal.

He is a person from normal, non-supernatural world like ours and was suddenly transmigrated into a world where people have powers and the chances of dying are higher than normal as well as the fact he transmigrated into the villain who is targeted by a lot of dangerous people and is literally destined to die. If I was in... more>> his shoes, I wouldnt be able to acting calm and collective either.

He is not OP like most transmigrated characters and Im ok with that since it kinda interesting to see how he slowly learns and develops more, as well as getting used to his new identity

I like the MLs. They have very distinct personalities and are fun to read about but there are just times when I think their attitudes are alittle too exaggerated in a way.


An example of this is that I like how much of a tsundere Jung Yi Joon is but sometimes think he's being too much of a tsundere.

Like how he keeps threatens to kill our MC if he dares kiss anyone besides him or that the MC with die if he does something with others other than with him. I know its an empty threat but it gets tiring overtime and sometimes gets annoying.


Its obviously not a perfect story. There are plot holes here and there and can get confusing but overall, its a really good story. <<less

Hmmm a user already mentioned how the MC sh*ts on the OG character and its annoying etc, I agree with that user. In every transmigration, the MCs never take the time to understand the villain they end up in. Rich families and especially heirs are dragged into power struggles, and I'm pretty sure~ if the Villains knew the plot on their life, they would've changed something. The og villain had more character than the MC, I'm more interested in the og villain than any of the characters in this book.

The opening of this book is pretty rough, a bunch of exposition and a weak tutorial to help the protagonist get his bearing in a world from a webnovel.

I don't really recommend this novel, with the character's not being too interesting other than two characters. The ability to receive a person's ability through kissing is a fun thing but also, uh... annoying. I am kind of nitpicking but it grows boring after so many times and the person who is kissing, just doesn't think of it as kissing at a... more>> point.

I read the rest on Ridibooks.


There is too many, many, loose ends that makes this story difficult to recommend due to how it ended. I have too many grievances with how the plot developed and its ending left me completely sour.

  • No resolution for the other boys who are practically dumped because the story ended at a confession. A confession is great but they didn't even kiss at the end? Or something more emotional to touch the poor romantic confession than a hug?
  • The side characters got pushed aside for progress that I even forgot who is who at a certain point because they only appear when they have a role to fulfill and the author really like skipping over stuff. Sure, I wish to read only the main characters too, but I want to care about other characters too if they have roles to play in the story. You can argue they have enough exposure for the reader to know them well enough, but it is like a story begins with no definite existence. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
  • I have an objective taste when it comes to tropes; I am pretty forgiving to the plainest of tropes that exist as long as it is an interesting setup. But after the fight with that one guy and the dog being reluctant fighting, I expect the big, final boss be some overwhelming stuff. Especially with the dragon lady. But it is a boring concept with the mind "ultimate world peace" determining the flow of the invaders in the most boring setup possible. It makes everything that happen look like a sad joke and I hate that. It feels like the suffering of other worlds is pathetic for falling to such a boring entity and how the main character solve the problem is kind of lame too (though I did like how he realize his own feelings for someone due to these problems existing. That is a nice touch.)

Even after listing all these, I am still sour after a week since I finished this story. I want some proper conclusion, not whatever that ending was suppose to be. And the confession is so weak that when I finished the story, I stare at my phone going, "that's it?"


I would rate this lower, but I did enjoy some of it enough to keep on reading it. In my understanding of ratings (for me), a 3 star meant it isn't good enough to recommend but enough to read to the end. But if there is decimals, this story is easily 2.5 because the characters are just boring, with only the siblings with some minor growth and everyone is staying still while timeskips are happening in a flash.

Again, I don't recommend this story unless you like this one. I read it to the end since I do enjoy reading tr*shy stories, but I really hate the ending. <<less

The MC is realistic, entertaining, sharp but also dense at the same time : 10/10

The male leads and supporting characters are also written nicely. Especially Kwon Jaehyuk he's so hot. But there's some characters that got 'neglected'. Idk if its intentional or not : 8/10

The storyline is all jumbled up and the pacing is just not right. It's so weird that it can get confusing at times. It started out good but it went downhill : 4/10

The translation is very good : 10/10

I really love the premise of this and I tried hard to really love the story overall but I find the execution a bit lacking. Mostly, it bored me?

I love the MC. I know he’s not to everyone’s taste but he charmed me with his realistic POVs. It’s just the world, character interactions, and how everything is presented is so boring. There are sparse interesting dialogs and everything that comes out of everyone’s mouth is so predictable.

It's not bad just a little boring as it goes on our MC is a good person and was pretty logical in the beginning, but eventually forgot? Some of the characters are really annoying MC to oblivious and oc it seems, nothing really happened with the story. So far only into one dungeonthe romance is lacking not horrible at all but it’s frustrating when actual couple things happen and the MC is to obvious to realize so it feels empty after awhile.
