After reading the manhwa, I just want to come and say that this is total queerbait. Like bro, the original protagonist is f*cking head over heels for our MC and I'm just being stuffed with a mouthful of dogfood every chapter! The sexual tension between these two is just so aggravating I just--

God someone save these two..

Some examples from the text:

... more>>

"I've told you several times, but I really like you" - Kim Do-Jin (OG Protag)

"No, I think it's accurate to say that he IS seducing me" - Choi Yu-Seong (MC)

"Choi Yu-Seong is mine!" - Kim Do-Jin (OG Protag)

"The beautiful man in front of me. With black eyes that seem to swallow me up, those sturdy shoulders and that fine tone figure. This perfect masterpiece of a man is named Kim Do-Jin" - Choi Yu-Seong (MC)


Like, could you be any less romantic?! (Not that I'm complaining about it but y'know.. Get together already!)

So far, it doesn't have as much BL content as "tr*sh of the Count's Family" or "Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint", but it definitely isn't lacking. As some of the above commenters stated, not long after the MC arrived in this world, it's like Kim Do-Jin (OG Protag) forgot about everything else and constantly chased after our MC.

On another note, the novel itself has quite an interesting concept because the MC doesn't really gain any OP powers, but instead uses the knowledge he already had to put together a plan to help him survive and escape bad situations. He's not too greedy and doesn't try to actively covet the OG Protagonist's allies, but instead just recruits enough to make him decently strong and not in constant danger. He's smart and when encountering situations that aren't explained in the novel, he is able to rationally use his own heard to figure out solutions. <<less

From reading the manhwa, I just want to say that this has some sort of queerbaiting, not as much as Omniscient Reader, but I feel like there should still be a tag for that because, yeah although they're not homosexual, there's still some weird sexual tension between our MC and the true MC that is not present between other male characters. Like, the returnee dude is weirdly interested in our MC but suuure it's because he wants to manipulate and use him to kill this other dude, it's not like... more>> he's a yandere. <<less

Lol I remember seeing the manhwa for this on a manga reading site. Even the cover of the manhwa looked like it was from a BL/yaoi manga. If it didn't have a BL tag or countless comments saying it wasn't yaoi, I would've completely thought it was BL. Even the actual content feels like it comes out of a BL manhwa...

As enkiros said, kinda queerbaiting.

Hmmm... otherwise. It does feel like it's pretty good so far. It's a tr*shy chaebol kid-tr*sh that has someone else reincarnate into him, and then he... more>> changes and becomes cool and OP. Basically something like that. It's a somewhat tried and tested formula, and it's pretty good so far imo (in the manhwa). Check it out maybe? <<less

Came here from the manhwa. And its really a good one.

Too bad the novel translation had just begun. Gonna tag this for now for read in the future. Im guessing its gonna be a long time before it catchup.

And yeah, the manhwa really give me a kind of "shoujo" vibe (i mean by how the character's "handsomeness"). Maybe because the author &/ the illustrator like that. But not really bad. And I still dont know how they really interact in the novel. So NP.

*I know we supposed to review the... more>> novel here. I'll give it once the chapter is many enough to rate it. <<less

I'm overall disappointed in how generic the novel played out. Maybe due to its earlier origins it lacks any and all ability to stand out or differentiate itself. I originally got hyped for the manhwa which currently appears to be better than the novel.

    • The rich son aspect isn't used (other than a plot point)
    • MC, book MC and villain are pretty typical
    • Scaling and progression got so predictable it was boring
    • Most side characters, powers, dungeons are quickly forgotten
Honestly if I had read this book 3-5 years ago I would of enjoyed it more. There are so many better Korean Dungeon novels on the market now that I simply can not recommend this one.

some superficial likeness to ORV in the system and the relationship between MC and the protagonist so far. to be honest, I was expecting the tension and battle of wits to be between the MC and protagonist, not between the MC and his own family, so I'm kinda disappointed so far. a lot of focus on dogs blood family melodrama ... more>>

I actually checked the country twice because the family set up is more like the typical Chinese super rich family/clan in-fighting and scheming novel. In Korean novels the MC is usually either an orphan or has a sick mom, grandma, or sister and lots of debt; there aren't many focused on family scheming and power grabs instead of saving the world.


as for the stuff outside the family drama... well everything so far has mostly been related to his family so not much happens that doesn't lead back directly to his siblings or family members. even the protagonist has been less prevalent than the dysfunctional family conflict.
not sure how far I'll make it since there is only so much dogs blood makjang family crap I can take. I'll give it an average 3 for now and let some chapters pile up in hope that the family infighting is only at the start and wont be the entire focus of the story.

about the manhwa;

I'm not a big fan of the character artwork and prefer the MC on the novel cover over the soft-looking blond dude created for the comic. I think he's supposed to look genteel or noble or something, but I find the way he's drawn to be kind of creepy and off putting. I really didn't like it and found it bad enough that I dropped it by chapter 10. maybe if I'd read it first I wouldn't mind as much but I read the novel first.

All I can say is that this novel is interesting, the protagonist of the novel will do anything to gain what he wants. Like he just won't give a damn unless that person is useful to help his goal

I hope this novel catch-up to the manhwa very soon, it will probably took a long time though, so I won't read this novel anymore until it progresses more than the manhwa

Your usual transmigrated-into-a-side-character-who-got-killed/disgraced-in-the-OG-source-material-and-becomes-an-OP-MC-trying-to-change-that. Pretty much contains what you might expect from those kinds of novels.

The writing is fast-paced and is quick to the point and though the writing falters sometimes, most of the arcs (to-date) have been interesting enough to keep attention to. The main character is also likeable though the rest of the cast took a while to warm up, in my opinion.

But a glaring peeve this novel keeps repeating is how often the author keeps throwing in unnecessary plot points and consistently flounders them. Like, yeah, this world... more>> is basically one big, collective twitch stream and the gods are its viewers (and I mean that in the most literal sense) but this is normal and you, the reader, should just accept it. And vampires are real, apparently? And the vatican has its own group of demon hunters? And this world apparently has the technology (or, at least, the ability) to interact and even parley with beings from other dimensions? Ah, but this novel ain't about that so don't get your hopes up for an explanation.

3.75/5 <<less

I have no issues with the novel itself, and the manhwa art is very nice. But recently, whenever I've tried to read this novel on here, I get redirected to other sites? This is the only novel I have had this problem with and I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing this. It is quite literally impossible for me to access any of the chapters right now.

Aah, I really like this book. It is indeed not very "creative" since it uses a lot of well known tropes but it executes the story well and I really like the characters. I also like the bromance lol.

Unfortunately, the manhwa is actually ahead compared to the translate novel. I also can't find the MTL translation or even the raw version. I'm so sad. I want to buy the original but I don't understand korean. ಥ‿ಥ
