The franchise originally began as a web novel written by creative duo Sing N Song, which became extremely popular among the reading community in South Korea. Since February 2020, one day after the conclusion of the novels, a webtoon adaptation by Sleepy-C in Redice Studio has been in publication. The webtoon has achieved a high level of popularity in South Korea and, thanks to translations, the rest of the world.

Omniscient Reader Overview

Kim Dokja does not consider herself the protagonist of her own life. True to the name given to him by his parents, he is a lonely person whose only hobby is reading web novels. For more than a decade, he has lived through Yoo Joonghyuk, the protagonist of the novel Three Ways to Survive the Apocalypse (TWSA). Through Joonghyuk, Dokja has second-hand experienced the trials of repeatedly going back in time, in search of an end to life-threatening "scenarios" that force people to act out amusing narratives of divine "Constellations."

After reading 3,149 chapters – long after all other readers lost interest – Dokja is finally resigned to the story ending. However, he receives an enigmatic message from the author informing him that the story will soon be monetized, before his surroundings suddenly go dark. He quickly realizes that fiction has become fact and that he is now living through TWSA. Although he is the only omniscient reader of the events that are to come, his success on stage is not guaranteed, but perhaps his advantage will allow him to assume the leading role that has never before corresponded to him.
