The Villain Who Robbed the Heroines


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

When I read the development of the heroine getting stolen away, I left a malicious comment to the author.

But then I woke up later, and I’m now the villain who is supposed to steal the heroine.

This novel is absolutely fantastic and one of the best literary pieces I have read to date.

including the snu snu of course.

its slightly similar to villain wants to live as in the style so one of them might have taken inspiration.

the main character is smart and manipulative aswell as cold and generally lonely.

so if your liked villain wants to live you will love this.


Chad Protagonist with psychological issues.

Ohk, So I am gonna say this again as I did with the other 3 reviews.

This is my 4th time writing a review about a novel.

And I gotta say, this novel is fantastic, this novel gives the vibe of "The Villain wants to live but it is actually better than "The Villain wants to live" for me (atleast).

The MC is the same person who read a novel in his world and got transmigrated to the novel world in the body of the villain but the twist is, he got the... more>> mental disorder of the villain too, just like duclein from the Villian wants to live.

Although, this novel shows kn between detail about the suffering and the effects of the disorder on him.

Just so you know, I am not really sure as I have just read the comments section and also saw some sites and reviews, but the author seems to go through the same mental disorder, maybe due to it, the detailing is so good.

The characters in the story all have different personality that feels alive. The Heroines, Their interactions, the background characters, and all of the characters are shown very well.

This story is more focused on the characters' development.

I don't really have much to say, more like, I can't say... as my English is bad, so I will just say that read this novel as I recommend it just like others who did so. <<less

First of all this novel has 0 NTR and NTL (Netori) , so don't let the title mislead you. It's about a guy who possesses the Villain of the novel who was supposed to do the stealing but later after he goes through his identity crisis he realizes both the villain and himself were one and the same. So the MC Ferzen is more like a guy who got the memories from his past life as Korea citizen rather than outright transmigration.


Our MC possesses the main villain Ferzen of the novel "Struggling to Survive Together" 2 weeks after sending a malicious email to the author. Initially he was confused about his identity and was suffering from Personality disorder due to two personalities opposing each other. Eventually, he overcomes his identity crisis by accepting that both the OG villain and himself are one and the same.

True charm of the novel is Ferzen's OCD, especially symmetric OCD which is based on author's irl psychological problem. Author was able to show great realism and attention to details when he was portraying the symmetric OCD.

Ferzen is very similar to Deculein when it comes to its aristocratic cold and regal demeanor. He doesn't let anyone walk over him Fls or mobs, in the initial arc when one of the main heroines slapped him he slapped her back (cause of his Symmetric OCD as his symmetrical view was distorted when the FL slapped him, so he slapped her back to make it symmetrical lol.)

The initial arc is painful but after that it gets really good.

Ferzen was voted Protagonist of the Year in Novelpia contest competing with protagonists of over 30, 000 novels.

Almost caught up to the raws. This novel truly made me buy the Novelpia pass.

The true pro of this novel is the MC hands down and he totally deserves the Protagonist of the Year Award. His traits were portrayed really well. I guess the reason for high degree of realism of MC especially the OCD because that aspect is based off of author's real life medical condition.

As for people who are calling MC rapist and NTR bastard I need to elaborate on this, both MC and the author himself absolutely... more>> loathes NTR it's evident from the very first chapter. His hate for NTR was clearly expressed unless you didn't even read the novel and just hating on it because of the tag.


And it really isn't NTr cause Ciel the OG protagonist only had one sided crush on Euphemia and he even abandons her in her dire hour and runs away with his tail between his legs. Not really a spoiler it's revealed in 2nd or 3rd chapter iirc. And Euphemia only saw him as her knight not in a romantic way she did want to escape with him and escape from her responsibilities, but she didn't. So title is misleading af. MC didn't rob sh*t he isn't Netori (NTL) bastard.


As for r*pe claims:-

It's mature novel for adults not kids in the first place, author did his research in the mediaeval romances and marriages. This Marriage was arranged for political reasons and the stuff that happens between MC and the first Heroine was realistic from historical point of view. Many alliances were forged this way and women regretfully were indeed treated as trophies. Also all relevant tags are there idk why ppl would even complain about it at this point. If you delved into it even after reading the tags then you're probably a masochist.


MC possessed the OG villain after the r*pe incident happened and even after synching, the OG Villain dominates for a fair share of time until MC eventually solves their identity crisis, and MC becomes the dominant force. MC realizes that both him and ferzen are one and the same. Before that he was more or less treating him as a separate entity. After that he does regret his past actions and genuinely comes to care for Euphemia.

However the Stockholm Syndrome was a pain to read, but you need to see what fits the context of the world setting. Fortunately it just lasts for first 2 arcs and eventually they both fall for each other after MC and Ferzen solves their identity crisis.


MC isn't into Necrophilia, MC is a necromancer, a warlock and his ability was beautifully portrayed in my opinion on how he needs to research the corpses to gain understanding and eventually control it to its full potential.

His corpse research is similar to people who do post mortem. So the necrophilia stuff in comments of translation site are basless claims.

Next up since I have completely read both 'Villain wants to Live' and 'Villain who robbed the Heroines' (Almost caught up to raws). I think I can properly compare the Protagonists of respective works

Ferzen vs Deculein (Contains major spoiler of VWTL ending)


There is a reason why Ferzen is regarded as one of the most well written main character among the last year novels releasd in KR scene.

Ferzen and Deculein are both similar in their aristocratic demeanor and vainglory. But Ferzen OCD was portrayed more realistically than Deculien's because of author's same medical condition.

But their major point of difference is Ferzen knows how to get sh*t done. He doesn't hesitate to off the variables that will prove to be problematic in future, whether females or male mobs no gender bias.

Stoned mf even offs the OG protagonist Ciel lol.

On other hand Deculein from moral standpoint appears to be better than MC while being as badass as Ferzen. However what's the use, Deculein failed at the end of Villain wants to live.

Major spoilers of VWTL ending scorned as Dragon-Serpant in KR novel scene (Something that started off like a soaring dragon but turned out to be a snake at the end).

Deculein had enough opportunities to save the world without having to sacrifice himself, I honestly like self sacrificial MC a lot and I do love Deculein, but you can't help but admit that Deculein's actions were moronic.

And look what his ret*rdation did to him neither was he able to fully die as he remained stuck in a comatosed state in a bloody painting, nor was he able to achieve his goal completely. He did a half assed job and just can't get sh*t done because of his obsession with making everyone hate him.

His goal of sacrificing himself to save his loved ones failed. 2 main heroines more or less died ffs what was the point. Tbf Deculein during the last stretch unlike Ferzen felt more like a puppet getting strung along by Gab Song and appeared to be more obsessed with dying than actually getting sh*t done. I blame Gab Song for that tbh. I still think Deculein is one of the best KR MCs I have ever read but you can't deny the fact he was a failure. Even though he saved the world but that too was because he got helped by other heroines but what's the point if some of the people you care about still ended dying when there were better alternatives out there instead of this one.

Anyway, in that regard I like Ferzen Von Schweig Brutein more. He achieves his goal with perfection and proper strategizing. I won't say he is too overpowered there are other ppl stronger than him. There is definitely tension.


I can't stress this enough but this novel is for mature people not for kids. The novel is specifically catered to adhere to the standards of mature audience because young audience will only get side tracked by irrelevant stuff mostly. <<less

The novel is really amazing!

And there's actually no netorare here.

I loved how the author built the main charater with such great detail. Especially his aristocratic behaviour and OCD. There are very few authors that can portray psychiatric conditions with such detail.
The novel is still ongoing but I have already reread this twice!

MC did r*pe the heroine but I would not call it a r*pe it was more like a marital r*pe

EDIT:- MC transmigrates after the r*pe

... more>> MC at the beginning proposed to the heroine to which she had a choice to reject but she didn't and she later says if she had do it again she would chose to do the same, then she tries to act immaturely to which MC handles her perfectly

MC mainly behaves like Frezen (the original soul) and is somewhat influenced by the morals of Seo-jin Lee (the one who transmigrated)

the novel is portrayed realistically, world building is fine, Yes, this a true harem novel, characters are well written they don't feel like 2 dimensional characters, character development is awesome

Reading this novel feels like a contrast to other novels where protagonist successfully protects/rescues the heroine from the villain and this novel deals with situation realistically not something like a fairytale novel

As a result

the original protagonist named ciel gets himself executed


and there is so much more to this novel like mc's ocd which author managed to show perfectly, author himself also has OCD about symmetry

One of the best novels I've read, I like novels in which the main character is evil or different from the stereotype like being good and weak and collecting a harem and so on. And that's why I like this MC. And yes there is no ntr The heroine was not the hero's wife or lover, she was his lady and she got married MC. And all thanks to the translators for their wonderful and professional translation. I was not bothered by the reading, as it was one hundred percent... more>> understandable. I hope you will finish translating this novel to the end, it deserves it. <<less

This novel is truly a masterpiece with how unique and real some characters feel like and especially the MC with his severe OCD where he tries to make anything and everything symmetrical even if he has to resort to violence. The plot progresses fairly well with little to no f**king info about how the original MC of the novel is or how he's doing early on but honestly speaking he wasn't that important to begin with.

... more>>

Ferzen (the body in which our MC transmigrated into) even tried gouging out his older brother's eyes during his childhood days just bcoz both of his eyes were of different color.


I'm lazy to write to any further so yeah.... stfu and read this, it's worth it I swear. Oh and if there's an pervert here who gets off with a corpse then you'll like it even more {not bcoz the MC f***s a corpse but the illustration of some corpses which he later uses are really well drawn which you would love to see, I wasn't into necrophilia but this has made me question my kink ;) }and the powers which they use is also equally very interesting to see. <<less

Original review c38:

This novel is absolute tr*sh. The MC is someone who constantly r*pes and gaslights his wife (whom he forcibly married) to kill her self esteem and force her to submit.

Now, I don't have a problem with evil MCs (Reverend Insanity is my favorite book), but here the MC is supposed to be a morally upright person who transmigrated into the villain's body. As such, the author tries to justify all his actions instead of openly admitting he is a horny tr*sh villain. I can't stand this kind of... more>> justification, does the author think the readers are s*upid and will believe in his lame excuses full of inconsistencies?

And please do not compare this MC to Deculian. Even though there are superficial similarities in their attitudes, Deculian's motives and actions are way different from this tr*sh MC.

Update c52: So I heard this novel gets much better later and decided to keep reading, but I really can't bear it anymore. The chapters are long and boring, full of disgusting r*pey material (the initial R18 parts could be considered stimulating, but they become dull and repetitive very quickly). Even if this novel becomes better later, I don't have the perseverance to slog through any more of these insipid chapters. <<less

Very interesting novel, finally a conflicted villain done right. He does evil things not because he's forced to do it due to his circumstances, it's because of how his brain works that he's compelled to do evil things even when he's aware that he's doing messed up things. There's no set plot that he has to prevent, because he transmigrated at the latest chapter of the novel he was reading. That means everything he does at this point is because he wants to survive the way he wants to, not... more>> because of some bullsh*t storyline he has to follow. This just honestly feels like a refreshing antithesis of The Main Heroines Are Trying to Kill Me. The main character is relatable to a degree due to his modern sensibilities, and that gives us enough of a window to peek at why a villainous noble would ever do the horrible things he does. The narration also doesn't linger too long on what the main character thinks about certain things and instead makes sure to keep the story flowing along with new pieces of information rather than keep on reiterating his own moral philosophy and reasonings. Very promising novel, the main character is really quite the refreshing one. <<less

Great read so far,

After our MC writes a malicious letter to the author because of a heroine getting stolen, he possess Ferzen the villain of the novel.

Ferzen has a symmetric OCD, which I heard is based on the author's IRL OCD which is pretty unique and the first time I've read something alike. His OCD is a real spice for the novel and puts Ferzen in a lot of sticky situations.

Ferzen reminds Deculein in regards to his aristocrat behaviour and him being a professor, he doesn't give sh*t about... more>> those around him and is truly entertaining to watch as an MC.

It seems like there are some conflicts about the origin MC personality and Ferzen, I really look forward to what will happen between them and their personalities. <<less

Only 12 chapters translated, but very interesting so far.

Novel is well written, characters seems to have a lot of depth, the back stories keep coming and enriching their personalities, it's good to read as you always have more and more interest on what else will be revealed.

As mentioned by other reviews, the MC has a lot of similarities with the MC from The Villain Wants to Live, but this one is more direct and approaches things more realistically, don't use roundabout ways to solve problems or go out of his... more>> way to do things he doesn't want just to be hated and align with the original role and characteristics of the original for "plot" reasons, I loved Deculein at the first 150 chapters but he got worse and worse as time went on, I hope Ferzen doesn't go the same route.

The r*pe thing is lame, it's a noble marriage and he did it after the marriage, consuming the marriage is natural and expected, this is a medieval fantasy setting, not modern society, ffs, it's really tiring to see people incapable of immersing themselves on the world setting when reading a novel, this is fantasy, never happened, get a grip.

The translation is pretty good, all the novels they picked up have a similar theme and are very high quality. <<less

I feel like every chapter is just about the MC involuntarily obsessing about symmetry and assaulting his wife.

The MC is supposed to be a fusion of some third-rate villain character and a Korean guy. The Korean influence is nowhere to be seen though.

He has no obvious motivations, not sure if this will change.

... more>> He is not as absurd and hilarious as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho. Neither does he have the cold calculating rationality of the MC in Reverend Insanity.

He isn't even an "Evil MC" in the first place. Every evil deed he commits, he passively blames on the personality of the previous host of his body.

Honestly imo this is just dumb torture p*rn, without any meaningful plot or entertainment value. <<less

I'm mostly here for the romance but it's also quite interesting and fun to read the MC being smart and straight forward at his decisions only for his obsessions to takeover most of the time.

Especially the symmetry disorder.

Definitely love the Stockholm Syndrome but definitely not me justifying the parts where it was r*pe.

... more>> Now come to think of it...

I kind of dislike the author's way how he justifies the MC who was supposed to be a morally good person but taken over the villains personality to keep mentally breaking and "r*ping* the Heroine thoroughly, but it's a medieval setting what did I expect...

Anyways like oh my god definitely love the disabled heroine, 10/10

This is a story that if it keeps up will probably be one of the most popular KR novels for some time. The story is very well written and while I don't agree on some parts like the accuracy of how it was in the medieval time. Since this is a fantasy world and I believe it was hinted at that the time is actually closer to the renaissance or industrial age then the medieval age but with a heavy focus on magic.

There also is far as I know no... more>> NTR against Ferzen (the MC) but there are at least hints of netori towards other characters in the story.

For instance the very first heroine Euphemia is shown to have gotten feelings for Ciel (the hero) but because of his OCD that revolves around symmetry and possessiveness since Euphemia has a golden ratio simply by looking at her Ferzen is at peace and his OCD is dampened. This leads to Ferzen invading the lands Euphemia's family own's, force her into marriage, r*pe her and take hold of her peerage. We are also told that when this happened Ciel was present but from what I remember they only had one horse so to ensure Ciel's escape coupled with the fact that Euphemia felt she couldn't leave her ppl made it so that she stayed behind and was therefore captured by Ferzen.

Later on another woman who is "kinda" set to marry another noble is made to marry Ferzen, there are some underlying stuff here like the woman herself wanting to marry Ferzen and her family being dead set on her marrying Ferzen or rather into his family.

Which could point at there being netori done by Ferzen however in both cases the women are in kinda ambiguous relationships without having made anything clear so it could also be argued that there isn't any netori done because the women were "free game" for Ferzen to marry.

I'm personally a fan of MC's like Ferzen that could be said to be total villains but that are driven not simply because of "evilness" but like in this story were most of Ferzen's evil actions are driven by his OCD for symmetry. To give some early examples when he orders someone to be executed, which results in a beheading, because of the cut not being symmetrical he draws a line on the neck and forces them to cut the corpses neck again to make it symmetrical. Another example is how he's learned to be ambidextrous simply so that when for instance he's eating with someone if they eat with the fork in their left hand and the knife in their right, he can eat with the knife in his left hand and the fork in his right so that everything is symmetrical.

This shows to me that the MC is driven more by his compulsion then some "evil" nature or simply bloodthirst and that he is unable to control it a lot of the time.

It's also nice to be given multiple POV in stories like these that focuses mostly on the characters and their interactions.

My only gripe so far has been that a lot of seemingly important stuff hasn't been explained in depth yet. <<less

I've read till the SNU-SNU scene to really have a good grasp on the writing style of the Author and I must say the writing is impeccable. The way he portrays a 'villain' in every sense of the word makes it engaging to read if you really want to feel the villain side of a story.

The downside is with the focus on the internal conflict and thoughts of the character, this novel doesn't really get into the 'fantasy' and 'otherworldly' experience, so if you're looking for that then bear with... more>> the long chapters and have patience.

Lastly the SNU-SNU. I've read a lot of SNU-SNU novels that focus on the psychological and emotional aspect of it. I'm not proud of admitting that I've read over 10, 000 NTR stories to fuel my passion for writing but with my experience this novel is one of those types of stories that focuses more on the emotional side of things and how the characters react with each other's interaction.


The SNU-SNU is not that Arousing. The tension and heat of the passion is lacking. The build up and atmospherical set-up is severely depleted. The scenario itself is Lewd and cause arousal but there should be a slow build up and anticipation for the scene itself that should be there but isn't cause of the abrupt and precise decision making of the MC


Overall I rate it VERY highly as a psychological literary work with Graphic depictions. The deep and explicit descriptive writing of this makes it a very engaging read and makes you want to read more from the intrigue alone. But too much description ruins it when it comes to it being an Adult novel.

It's not really an Adult novel, so don't come and read it expecting to BUST a fat nut or satisfy your decrepit and twisted desires. (Unless you're a complete Degenerate sicko of course then you'd probably find the Scenes extremely arousing)

I don't know if the story would involve Heart pounding and heartwarming scenes but I doubt the writing style of the Author would let for a relaxed and fluffy painting, he can try, but He will Fail in doing so since Readers would always crave for the best and look for flaws. It's better to stick to a concept till the end than abruptly throw it all away to appease some people on the internet. <<less

Excellent Novel. All time favourite. Kiss on the cheeks of the translators.

If you did not run immediately after seeing the tags, this novel is for you. Forced Marriage. R-18. Stockholm Syndrome. It's exactly what you think it is in a more fancy way.

Protagonist is someone who thinks. He knows what he is doing. Female Characters have actual personalities with inner thoughts. No falling in love for no reason. Ferzen has to take care of it himself. We love to see it.

I'd also respectfully note the low cognitive game of the... more>> low raters.

Deculein (VWTL), Fang Yuan (Reverend Insanity) and Ferzen have different motives behind their actions - their environments are entirely different what did you expect for God's sake - but think fundamentally alike. They will achieve what they want through any - be it 'evil' - means.

Next, the 'upright' Seo-jin from modern times did not transmigate in a traditional sense. Seo-jin's and the original Ferzen's soul literally got merged. Ferzen 'blames' his obsessions on the original Ferzen just like how he says "in Seo-jin's memories". He views Seo-jin and the original Ferzen as different people. It simply takes time to mentally accept the Synchronisation.

In a single sentence fancy R-18 Novel with fulfilling Plot. I love it. I have done horrible things while reading it. 10/10. Would recommend. <<less

The more I read this novel, the more I love it. It has become my guilty pleasure at this moment.

I love everything about this novel - the main character, the main heroines, their interactions, their development.

It looks more like a character focused story rather than a grand scale fantasy, which is a breath of fresh air and I love it. Plus, I heard its a

True Harem. That is another reason to give it 5 star.


In short, I recommend this novel.

So far so good! I like the characters and every one of them (MC/heroines) have potential for good future development. The writing is well done and only reason I give 4/5 is because of some personal preferences that I know not everyone will share with me. Still this is one of the better finds for me in recent years in the fantasy category. I especially enjoy the villanous MC that is still relatable because of his OCD.

Reminds me of The Villain Wants to Live. The MC has a part of Deculein's noble soul infused into him.

So many things done right. The MC is a sane person suffering under the effects of a mental disorder, its done so well. I could rave for longer, but I wont. Highly recommend.
