Part 3: The Author Of Omniscient Reader

Omniscient Reader by Sing-Shong

We get the name of Sing-Shong as the author of Omniscient Reader when we view the manhwas cover. According to the author’s official website, Sing-Shong (alternative names: Sing-Syong or Sing N Song) is a pseudonym for married couples who write Omniscient Reader.

Other than this manhwa, the couple has written one another fantasy-themed novel. However, Sing-Shong is more famous for the Omniscient Reader novel. At some points, the word Viewpoint is added after the word Reader.

People have read this manhwa on various platforms with different languages, which is a contrasting thing when compared with another one of Sing-Shongs novels.

I would say that Sing-Shong is a powerful couple when it comes to creating a one-of-a-kind writing piece. This web novel is proof that the book universe can have superpowers and that the characters in the book can come into reality. In other words, reading this web novel also means witnessing journalism becomes a superpower in front of the reader’s eyes.

I enjoy reading Omniscient Reader. Plagiarism becomes the villain’s superpower, the demons and other beings become real, the encounters with the MC’s thoughts become so close, and others There are lots of unusual and entertaining elements in this novel that I don’t want to miss.

Soon, she also enters the world of the light novel that she reads.

Summary of Reincarnated In A Light Novel-Like World:

Alternative to Omniscient Reader

The stories in Reincarnated In A Light Novel Like World are focused around Clayris, a woman who loves reading novels, watching anime series, and K-dramas as her pastime. One day, she reads a Chinese light novel, in which she experiences an odd thing as soon as she enters the universe in the light novel.

There, Clayris finds that everybody else doesnt speak her language. People in the light novels universe also wear ancient Chinese clothes. The professions, such as physicians and such, are also identical to the ancient Chinese universe. Strangely, Clayris befriends the characters in the novel’s universe, and one of them is Bai in the castle.

I would say that Reincarnated In A Light Novel Like World is a gender-bent version of Omniscient Reader.

After all, Dokja doesnt only befriend his idol in TWSA, but he also gets to know other beings, such as the Dokkaebis, Oldest Dream, the Demons, and so on, that never exist in modern times and in a real-world Just like Clayris in Dreames Reincarnated In A Light Novel Like World.
