[Take heat suppressants] Are my eyes wrong?

“Ah, Noona. Turn off the alarm… It’s loud.”

When I opened my eyes, I suddenly became the Recessive Omega, Seong Chan-young, the villain in the BL novel that my sister was reading.

The role of Seong Chanyoung is… He was a villain who burned inferiority in the main player Seo Eun-soo and ended up with a miserable end to the Gongs.

At this rate, I am destined to be swept away by Gongs that love Seo Eun-soo.

I can’t die like this!’

“……I’m sorry. Seo Eun-soo, I would like to sincerely apologize for bothering you.”

“What?”

First, go to the main Shou and apologize to him.

“I’m breaking up with you today.”

“All of a sudden?”

“I don’t like you anymore. Let’s break up the marriage. You didn’t like me either.”

He also broke up with Seong Chan-young’s fiance.

Seong Chan-young blocked all other Gongs’ contact information and erased them before escaping.

To where? To a quiet, watery countryside.

What do you mean by “Villain Revenge”? I decided to live by farming as much as I wanted to.

I was so happy planting lettuce, buying strawberry seedlings, and raising a Shigorzav dog but…

***시고르자브종 (Literal Meaning: Country Hybrid Dog) is a plausible term for a little bit of play with linguistic purification. It’s literally a dog that does not fall within a particular breed of dog, and has at least two kinds of pedigree.

“Did you disappear to live here like this? For real?”

The Gongs came after me.

But you punks. Are you looking down on farming?

The premise of the story is very fun and I really enjoyed the way the protagonist went about figuring out how to "get out of the story" so to speak and find his way in this new life. Particularly the emphasis on how far being rich gets you is incredibly fun. I also enjoyed the way the author pointed out the double standard of how an Omega chasing after an Alpha is perceived vs Alphas chasing after an Omega.

However, as others have already pointed it out, the writing style leaves... more>> much to be desired. I can deal with confusing translations, I'm more disappointed at the huge cast of characters we immediately get introduced to without getting a particular description of who these characters actually are. This story feels very much like it's still in first draft, more focused on picking up plot beats like bullet points instead of delivering us a setting to go along with it.

I've dropped the story for now, I might return to it at a later point. <<less

Hello, translator for the novel here!

I've picked it up due to the novel being super easy to read and engaged. If you like Farming/Slice of life with comedic undertone, this is for you. Although the tags do say Omegaverse, there hasn't been a huge emphasis on the smut or anything s*xual yet (I'll update the reveiew here if there is in the future), so I believe even people who avoid Omegaverse can enjoy this.

Hope you enjoy this novel! I would like to read your thoughts and feedbacks on it,... more>> thank you!

Edit (2/2024) :

As many people have mentioned, it is indeed true that the story is really heavy on the drama aspect. I still find it chill and easy to follow but everyone has different tastes so I totally understand if this is not your cup of tea <<less

Up until now, the story seems very interesting. Is a pretty chill read, and gives you more than one POV.

HOWEVER

If there is one thing I have complaints about is the way it is written. I don't know if it's the way the author writes or the translator's, but this story needs some serious editing. There are moments when one of the characters is talking or thinking, and it changes POVs from "I" to "he" or "character thinking's name", so there is some serious inconsistency there.

Aspiring translators, writers and editors, if... more>> there's an advice that you need to take into consideration is that, PLEASE review your own work: read it as a reader would, check the spelling, consistency and grammar, because believe it or not, these things could make the difference between a successful novel and something that could have potential, but is an incomprehensible mess.

Aside from this, this novel has been good for now, and is definitely in my priority list of things to read. I hope to see more of it, and if you're looking for a relaxing read with some interesting characters, then give this novel a chance. <<less

Reading the translators review and the tags, even though there is a small drama genre. I thought this story was going to be all fluff and cuteness with comedy. The comedic aspect wasn't really doing much for me or I didn't really notice it much besides the misunderstandings being a microscopic amount of funny, but the drama was really present.

Reading the summary you really wouldn't expect much depth from the story, so imagine my suprise when there actually is some plot. Trying to keep this spoiler free XD.

You get to... more>> see the MCs struggle to get along with his grandpa and his struggles trusting others. His identity crisis. He is not a perfect MC.

The MTL is readible for anyone that can't wait for the translations.

I don't recommend reading it all in one sitting like I did, somewhere in the middle you'll feel tired of the story before it picks back up <<less

This is a "transmigrated into a harem novel as a side character/antagonist and tried to stay away from the plot, only for the harem to stop liking the original protag and become obsessed with me instead" except it's actually done well. The obsession of the "harem" also stems less from "obsessed because they're suddenly in love with me now" and more based in pride/"the person who was chasing them suddenly doesn't like them anymore? What the heck? He must be up to something because why wouldn't he like me?" and... more>> complex feelings and guilt arising from the idea of a person you hated and wanted dead suddenly disappearing and maybe actually dying tragically. Or genuine cold-blooded malice for almost no reason.

Also surprisingly serious about certain themes. The hypocrisy of the original male leads as love interests is one. My favorite is a theme you don't see enough in isekai series, which is the grief and loneliness that comes with suddenly finding yourself in another world and never being able to see your family again. And then not magically getting over it, having a hard time adjusting, and not being able to see the world as "real" because of it. MC goes from agreeing with all the hate the villain gets to sympathizing and doing things for the sake of his memory because MC understands the kind of loneliness and emotional pressure the villain suffered from.

The love interest isn't clear at this point, and if it wasn't for other reviews I would have guessed that this either ended without MC ending up with anyone or him ending up with Secretary Choi, who I kind of ship him with. Slightly disappointed to be spoiled otherwise. As of chapter 38, the most likely ML seems to be
Spoiler

Seo Eun-soo, the original protagonist, surprisingly. Before that it was just as likely to be his ex-fiance as it was Secretary Choi, but the events of the last two chapters changed that.

[collapse]

Compared to other ABO series, transmigration series, and harem series, it's one of the better works I've read. Not perfect, but giving it a 5/5 anyway. <<less

Quite a simple and chill story about someone reincarnating into a book that their sibling has read....? It's really pretty chill, and there's no complicated social politics or anything going on so I agree with the reviewer who said to not read all of this in one sitting LOL....I'm near the end but I need a break before I pick it back up.

The story (from what I can gather from MTL) is held together pretty well. The MC is not very particularly clever, (nor does he need to be... more>> tbh, for this novel), but he certainly does have a passion for farming and has a rather straight forward sort of charm to him. It's refreshing if you're tired of stories where the MC just kinda, relents to the MLs for whatever reason, or if you want a less traditional/straight forward "alpha/omega" story. The raw MTL is also pretty readable.

overall, this was just a "whatever" read for me. it's not bad, but it's also not something I would particularly go out of my way to read again. it's just chill :)

Spoiler

This is NOT harem story. more like a "some of the characters revolve around the MC for whatever reasons" type story. the MC doesn't get any romantic teasing with the others, so the mutual romance part is pretty..... slow going.

I personally have a bone to pick with the MC, a few translation issues aside (as pointed out by other reviewers).

The MC in his way with dealing with the og novel’s alphas and the protagonist rub me off the wrong way so badly that I just want to smack his head and shout at him to grow bigger balls in the omega he’s possessing the body of! (Which by the way I think I probably like more than the MC!)

... more>>
Spoiler

I just can’t stomach mc’s way of handling the alphas and the protagonist omega, like really? Grovelling like a loser and constantly making yourself look like a joke? Really? In a chaebol’s body? Like okay you don’t have to like the og body but that’s straight up disrespecting him and HIS body, the fact the author mentioned a dead c*ckroach and touching his head on the floor pissed me off badly.

In the MC’s position, ofc anyone would be pissed to have to clean up after a shitty person’s mess but the whole memorandum sh*t bugs me so badly, like why do you have to give your weaknesses to others just for them to believe you? Whether they believe your words or not is up to them, including trust and forgiveness.

I felt like MC should’ve punched that f*cker Koo Tae what’s his name, the way he grabbed MC by the wrist was asking for a f*cking goddamn slap in the face and a black eye.

I already can’t stomach a majority of the characters, well practically ALL of them so really, I’m dropping this shit.

[collapse]

Things that a good about this novel though are:

Spoiler

MC has trust issues, an identity crisis and is fearful and flustered by his situation of possessing the villain’s body. I like how he’s in a constant state of apprehension and worry before he gets to farm in peace. Quite frankly, unless you are a seasoned adult with experience in society, being transported into an unfamiliar world with absolutely NO ONE you know besides characters in a book who are the only people you have a connection to, his reactions are reasonable. Furthermore, his excitement towards the protagonist omega felt relatable since he’s something MC is basically familiar with but then he’s doused in reality that the world is not so kind to him hen the omega is on guard against him.

[collapse]

All in all, this is just my personal opinions so read if you will, I just can’t stomach mc’s grovelling with apologies as the fastest way, thinking it’ll get rid of all their problems (which is a common theme I’ve seen in a lot of Korean novels involved with transmigration into a villain) which is a personal distaste for me.

I want in thinking it would be a light hearted read as other reviewers said but I came out with high blood pressure instead 😭 guess it was my bad as I should’ve known omegaverse stories are always a miss for me.

Personal rating: 1/5

Average rating: 3/5 <<less

Hard to read, I agree with the comment by peerless:

(There are moments when one of the characters is talking or thinking, and it changes POVs from "I" to "he" or "character thinking's name", so there is some serious inconsistency there.)

I have to reread some of the chapters because its very confusing. I have to rest because its giving headache. Will give it another chance (09.02.23)

It's short, cute and just what I needed when searching for a Stardew like game to play. The humor matches my taste so I found it extremely funny and didn't take it too seriously until plot parts start falling into place.

The writing does have its issues, but thats what can happen in a omniscient POV. For the most part we are only in the MC's head but occasionally be in another character's head but not for very long. You either get used to it, or it will annoy you too... more>> much to finish the book.

The ABO aspects are light so that was nice for someone who doesn't like/read many ABO books. All that really comes into play is the pheromones. On the other hand the transmigration, which I assumed was a throw away point. Turns out, nope, that will become important the farther in you get.

There's not much to the farming. No super in depth explanation about plants and how to raise them. I mostly just imagined the MC was playing a stardew like game (Plant the things, make sure they get watered and wait).

For the romance, it felt like it could take a harem route it doesn't, praise the author. Oh and
Spoiler

Bless the author for not having the MC end up with one of the old gongs. I would have cried.

I feel like the title and description might be slightly misleading. You might have also expected this to be a romantic slice-of-life story with comedic undertones but I'd rather describe it as a story where MC (and others) face their inner issues and find their own way to live their life.

The MC and the other potential MLs have almost zero chemistry but I enjoyed it anyways. You'll probably cuss at the behavior of the other MLs in the first half, waiting for the MC to finally snap and... more>> tell them off, but the story will get more interesting as a deeper plot unfolds in the second half.

Impression of characters:

Spoiler

MC (Seong Chanyoung)

    • naive, patient and kind but also anxious with trust issues

Seo Eunsoo (original shou)

    • wolf in sheep's clothing, gentle and kind to MC

Baek Dojun (original ML)

    • knows how to cook, the 2nd most normal after Eunsoo

Yoo Yiseo

    • snake, childhood trauma, mommy/daddy issues
    • Actually found him the most interesting out of everyone

Joo Taekang

    • previous stalking behavior, grumpy?

Chae Yoonchan

    • pampered young master that gives of playboy-ish vibe

Hi I wanna leave my comment here 🙋🏻‍♀️

If I wanna rate this story I should say 3/5

At first it actually made me think, author what have you wrote this lack a lot of things and it didn't explain a lot of things...

It has a very very slow romance and it skipped a lot of details, just made me confused 😖

But sometimes I enjoyed reading it also maybe because I love ABO genre I could read it to the end😪

Well I can say it was not bad but not best 😪

... more>>
Spoiler

in the last chapters readers were like : ooooh so there was a wish system 🤔 but whatever 😐 (eventhough I really like this type of story) 😪

[collapse]

There is only one thing I can say :

If you love alphas being posessive toward omegas and you have time to read every story you can read (eventhough it only has a little romance)

Thanks again for introducing new story ❤ <<less

While not a bad story, I probably wouldn’t describe it as a good one. I think the MC is an interesting person who should be attend therapy due to his layered traumatic experiences, I don’t hold much feeling for any of the other characters in the story who hate, regret, and push their way into his life.

There isn’t much romantic chemistry to be had, to the point I kind of wish this was a slice of life novel focusing on the farming aspects alongside his cute dog.

There are also a... more>> lot of inconsistencies with the translations that doesn’t make impossible to read, although it’s still noticeable in about every single chapter. <<less

Let me preface that I MTLed the whole novel as I found the raws first and only after completing the novel remembered to check novelupdates and saw that there was already a good part translated. Therefore, I won't be able to talk about the translation quality so I will stick to the novel characters and content.

First of all, I didn't really bond well with the characters. There was no one I really vibes with or liked in particular. The MC was a bit too silly/dense/in denial for my taste... more>> and all the potential ML candidates aside from the one the MC ended up with became kinda bland and didn't particularly stand out as individuals by the end of the novel. But even the main ML wasn't really my cup of tea.
Spoiler

The wolf in sheep's clothing act, and crying to manipulate the situation in his favor in particular wasn't for me.

[collapse]

Concerning the plot, I expected a light-hearted, romantic comedy when I started reading as the novel description had that feeling. And while the novel did have those elements with the straight MC transmigrating into the body of a villainous omega of a BL novel and the ensuing struggle with his gender and trying to avoid the og. plot characters, the story did take a few unexpected turns. The depressing pasts of the MC and og. body owner aside, the supernatural/borderline horror development surprised me for some reason. And to be honest, it kinda felt like it came out of left field. But I just rolled with it, I guess, not quite sure what to think of it.

Another thing I am unsure of is the ending as it felt kinda empty and left me unsatisfied. Maybe it's because I didn't really feel any chemistry between the main leads. In fact, it didn't feel like the MC had any chemistry with any of the potential MLs. He had the most chemistry with his dog instead imo, but let's not go there.

So yeah, while the novel wasn't that bad, it wasn't really that good either.

Oh... Another thing... There is mention of s**cide even if not really acted/written out or made a central topic in the novel so those who might get triggered by the topic should still be aware. <<less

I want to read more. The original Seo Eun-soo has had a rough life, and I wish the current Seo Eun-soo the best. I like that the author writes about the double standards with the Alpha love interest (s) ; and how grotesque their pursuit of a lovable Omega, and how they're perceived. Versus the original Seo Eun-soo being a unimpressive Omega who persistently tails these Alphas because of an inferiority complex.

And I was confused about the additional layers to ABO that was introduced: dominant-recessive traits in Omegaverse. From what... more>> I can tell, those with the recessive characteristic is still susceptible to pheromone and their conditions, but they have weaker presentation. But it begs the question, there are no discernible difference, does the general populace know? Or is it the original Seo Eun-soo's complex?

This novel is frustrating, but it's worth the read if you want a dynamic ABO. <<less
