A cliché setup. What if I was in his shoes? What would I change? How much would change? On the day that Seol Jihu betrayed his younger sister and stole her car, 'I' took over.
Who was 'I'? Why had I stepped into his shoes? 'I' didn't know. But I knew one thing. Even if I wasn't the real deal... from here on out, I would be Seol Jihu. And I was going to do things my way.
An indulgent self-insert story into the Second Coming of Gluttony with the usual power trip fantasy stuff. Some things change, others remain the same, and the end game... Well, small ripples become huge waves.
I've had this lying around for a while and kept adding to it for fun here and there, but since it's gotten pretty big, I figured I'd post it for people to read and get some enjoyment out of it if they can.

Also going to be slowly uploading this to Webnovel as well, but it'll always update here first.
Possibly the worst fanfic of the second coming of gluttony. It's like author took away everything that was good about the original novel and added extra cringe or further added to the things that was bad in novel. I don't know about others but what I really liked in the novel was the journey and struggle that seol jihu faced when he finally realized his mistakes. His physical challenges when he fought monsters stronger than him and barely won (I know too much reliance on plot armor). And emotional challenges when he tried to patch things up with his family. Author completely disregard those as "trivial things" and focused more on interesting stuff like "adding more girls to harem" or further messing up the power curve of seol jihu. It's very easy to create a op character because it lacked imagination and trials that hero has to go through to gain so much power or write a scene where hero barely make out alive by using strategy or with. Who wants that boring stuff. Right? When you can completely wipe out floor with your enemies. It's much cooler.
The thing that I didn't like about original was how poorly it handled romance and complex situation between seol, yuhui and his girlfriend. It was an interesting scenario which could be written better and probably the thing which you would like to read in fanfic when other person try to tell the same story but a bit differently. But again who wants to address that complex and boring relationship when instead you can have more girls in harem.
So anyone who wants to read about op, playboy, Mary Stu version of Seol Jihu, then look no further elsewhere.
To put it bluntly, It's a wish-fulfillment, but a GREAT wish-fulfillment story. Seriously, I never thought there's an amazing guy who uses SCOG as fanfic but definitely approves it. As for the story itself, it's incredible. The story can stand for itself, similar yet different, clear flow while having suspense too. Most of all, it's VERY interesting (at least for SCOG fans who wish for a different ending.) Honestly, if I could pay money for advance chapters, I will because THIS is gold. Read it, you'll enjoy it.
It's good, really! The suspense and all what makes me read the whole thing in one go.
It's a bit regretful that there weren't r-18 scene. I mean, only thing that I hate in scog is it's lack of eroticism. (Teasing is good and all but speaking in a matter of honest brother need to blow some steam.)
"People communicate to know better, s*x also other form of communicate."
worse than original.
In original, MC wasnt that powerful or confident but still beta as much. Story didn't changed at all. "Fate" can't be changed I presume. MC talking like womanizer but always suspend effect. Its worse than original because you could find fault that MC is meek, and having confidence problems, but not this one so I don't know who to blame when character traits and his actual acts don't match up.. Disappointed
Honestly is a big disappointment. The author shows several times that he has the creativity to use the setting and do his own thing with it. But instead, even though his MC is magnitudes more powerful than the original one, the sequence of events keeps being the same as canon to the point of absurdity.
The writing quality is good enough, the romance is as frustrating as canon and the tension is next to nonexistent since the MC is so powerful and he doesn't have the social handicaps of the original... Overall dissapointing but not horrible
The thing which turned off my interest is his ability to create items. He can change property of materials through alchemy ok but creating items out of nowhere and with whatever abilities he wants is too much
This is gold. Before I started reading this I honestly thought it would be a wish fulfillment harem story with a tinge of drama and emphasis on the 'capture' of heroines.
it wasn't... well, not completely
Amazing Read this is a good different version of the original and im not saying the original is horrible but this is a better version for me that is true and if you thought about it this could have been what should happen in the original I knew that if seol jihu wasn't in constant agony of his regrets Then this power level would be his
Amazing novel, I recommend reading this, it is entertaining at every chapter, and many satisfying events occur, the MC is a nice guy but he can be ruthless when needed.
At the beginning, most things will have small changes but as the story progress, we will see how those small changes will alter so many things....
Enjoy reading this!
This novel is an absolute gold, it's so much better than the original one. I can guaranty you, you will love it.
PS: Author-san please change the cover pic to something better. I was initially really skeptical to whether read the novel or not, due to bad cover, but I am really glad I did it. Also, I hope you complete this novel properly & wouldn't drop it half way, I am really anticipating it's ending.
