The story of Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint centers around the protagonist, Kim Dokja, an average office worker who enjoys reading web novels. When the events of the current web novel he is reading become a reality, he must alter the course of reality armed with only the knowledge of how the web novel’s story plays out. Along the way of slowly building up a group of companions, he also meets Yoo Joonghyuk, the main protagonist of the web novel and one of its most powerful characters.
