A man who was up all night working falls asleep and wakes up to find himself in a web novel that he was reading. Not only that, he finds himself in the body of a villain in the series named Choi Yoosung who ends up getting killed after being used by the main character Kim Dojin to kill Yoosung's father. In this novel world there are dungeons that are being conquored by hunters who have awakened powers to deal with the monsters within said dungeons. Originally, Choi Yoosung was a disappointment who didn't have any awakened abilities and it led to his insecurities and lack of self worth that led into him being absolute trash as a human being. He acted like a spoiled rich brat and partied and drank and treated the people around him terribly. But once becoming that trashy character the NEW Choi Yoosung does something the original would never do, he goes to his father and essentially tells the man that he's done being the disappointment that he was and done moping and wants to make something of himself and asks his father to give him a chance. Which the man does. He ends up taking something that forces him to 'awaken' and he decides to become a hunter to better protect himself from Kim Dojin, who is already trying to weasle his way into Yoosung's life. Kim Dojin is an up and coming hunter who many people have their eyes on. He has every intention of killing Yoosung's father and HAD every intention of using Yoosung and then throwing him away, but notices that Choi Yoosung has changed. The boy who thought he would be better off dead now clearly wants to live and is showing fighting spirit and a personality that Dojin didn't see before. He begins to think that Yoosung would be worth so much more at his side and starts to think it'd be better to keep him around and get him stronger than to toss him away. Yoosung on the other hand is working to make himself stronger and to level up as much as he can to face whatever the future will bring. He's confused as to why his father, who was very indifferent to him in the novel, is suddenly showing more interest in him. Which, of course, doesn't make it easier on him as many of his siblings very much don't like this fact. He also decides to gather around a group of people that he can trust to guard his back should things with Dojin go south, although he's dodging the man to the best of his abilities. So yeah, this manhwa is like a cross between Omniscent Reader's Viewpoint and Trash of the Count's Family so if you enjoy either series then you will undoubtedly like this series. The art is really well done imo and the story is getting more exciting as the time passes. I'm wondering if he'll be able to catch up to Dojin due to his future knowledge because he's a reader of the web novel. Also, Dojin reminds me so much of Joonghyuk from ORV lol. I look forward to seeing what happens in this series and definitely recommend if you are a fan of one or both of the other series I mentioned.
