Kim Dokja does not consider himself the protagonist of his own life. Befitting the name his parents gave him, he is a solitary person whose sole hobby is reading web novels. For over a decade, he has lived vicariously through Yoo Joonghyuk, the main character of the web novel Three Ways to Survive the Apocalypse (TWSA). Through Joonghyuk, Dokja has experienced secondhand the trials of repeatedly regressing in time, in search of an end to life-threatening "scenarios" that force people to act out narratives for the amusement of god-like "Constellations."

After reading 3,149 chapters—long after all other readers lost interest—Dokja finally resigns himself to the story ending. However, he receives an enigmatic message from the author, stating that the story will soon be monetized, before his surroundings suddenly go dark. He swiftly realizes that fiction has become reality and he is now living through TWSA. Although he is the singular omniscient reader of the events yet to come, his success in the scenarios is not guaranteed—but perhaps his advantage will empower him to step into the protagonist role that never suited him before.

Ahh this seems to be a new addition in here and I was WAITING for this to be added.

Note that the webtoon just recently released a few months back and I will be writing my review for the 36 chapters I have read, not the webnovel.
So let's get to it now, my review might be a bit too long with some spoilers.

STORY: 10/10
This starts off with a simple yet exciting plotline that many readers might be able to relate to. Our MC here is an avid reader of webnovels and he followed one of them in particular called "Three Ways to survive the apocalypse" ...

Omniscient Reader isn't the first manhwa to bloom outside its home, few others managed to do the same but what separates it from the rest is the fact it's very unique and I've personally never read anything like this ever before

Story : Incredibly immersive and Exciting with amazingly written lore. The manhwa starts with our protagonist Dokja realising that web novel he has been reading for years is the reality now. Apocalypse striked, the world has fallen but he knows how to survive and what will happen next. He was a reader, reader he still is, but a reader who knows it all. The characters ...

Oh boy, a Korean Webtoon that hits ALL the right vibes but manages to be completely meaningless.

Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint (or ORV) is about an underdog hero who had faithfully and loyally read a webnovel to its conclusion. You can say he's dedicated, since he turned out to be the ONLY reader after 3,149 chapters.

It's easy to see why ORV is so appealing. It's your typical... I guess "hybrid" isekai where the world manages to turn into a video game. It has fresh and interesting ideas, blending in RPGs with a worldwide battle-royale streamed to the... stars in the sky.

But not only does the world-building fail ...
