K-netizens Excited about the Upcoming Movie Adaptation of Fantasy Adventure Web Novel Omniscient Reader But Worried About Casting for the Male Leads

A super popular South Korean fantasy story is getting the big-budget big screen adaptation and there is a lot at stake. The web novel Omniscient Reader started in 2018 and was so popular it has over 100 million readers and also got a webtoon adaptation. K-ent has picked it up for a 5-part movie adaptation by the production team behind Along With the Gods. Okay, those people I trust and with that team behind the scenes they could make it work. The story is about a ordinary guy who lives vicariously through his favorite novel and one day gets transported in there from the beginning and has to survive and conquer which isn’t a sure thing even if he knows the plot. There is no romance but there is bromance and its really a strong action and suspense type story. K-netz are excited its finally getting an adaptation but really worried about the casting because its going to be hard to find the right male actor be play the lead. I haven’t read the source material but I hope it’s cast with someone that gets the readers excited.

  1. It’s Good. The novel is really good. There a reason why this novel loved by that many ppl (including me). And if this one will be made by production team of Along with the Gods then probably we can trust about the casting? I mean they really do great job and pick the right actor for each character (including idol actor DO). But, yeah, still the casting for this novel can be tricky because of how many fans this novel have.

  2. Anyone can share how I can get the novel ? Been look for a good read to improve my Korean, but I am not good enough to source for novels.

  3. Idk about this one. Sometimes, try as they might they won’t be able to find actors to play the actual characters. Crossing my fingers for a good adaptation.
