About Omniscient Reader:
Kim Dokja figures out from the web novel that there are three ways to survive the apocalypse, and anyone who reads the novel will survive. People often misunderstand him because of his name. In Korean, his name can mean “only child,” “reader,” or “individualist.”
His dad gave him that name because he wanted Kim Dokja to grow up strong and independent. But Kim Dokja thinks his name is a curse because he’s been single his whole life. He didn’t go to a great college and works as a contractor for a big company.
His only hobby is reading web novels on the subway ride home from work. One day, he talks to a co-worker named Sangah Yu, who’s really popular at their job. They lead very different lives, but that subway ride isn’t ordinary because Kim Dokja is excited to read the last chapter of his favorite web novel.
The story means a lot to him, and he’s been reading it since eighth grade. The web novel is like an escape from his tough life and makes him feel better, especially when he was bullied. He didn’t do well on his entrance exams, went to a not-so-great college, and had a hard time in the military. His job isn’t great either because he’s a temporary worker who moves around a lot.
Is It Finished?
If you’re wondering if Omniscient Reader has finished, the answer is no. Even though it started in 2020, the story is still going. People are curious to see how it will end. Also, the fact that it’s becoming a TV show is making more people want to read it.
