She could spend hours in her college library researching about criminals, learning about the human psyche and what made people tick; but, on the weekends, Han Gwakkot was a total nerd.
In love with an online web novel turned light novel called Golden Regret, Han Gwakkot had ordered the physical copy of the book and had been on her way to the bank to withdraw some funds before going to visit her mother. Sadly, she would never be able to see her mother again as she was killed while trying to protect a child when said bank got robbed.
It was said to be a tragedy as while Han Gwakkot wasn’t the most attractive or feminine of girls, she was highly charismatic and skilled within the academic world, renown amongst her peers for her intelligence and well liked by professors due to her intelligence. They called it a shame that a girl who could have ruled the world with an iron fist and golden mind died so tragically.
December 31st marked the death of a flower; January 1st marked the blooming of another…
While her name did mean rebirth, Han Gwakkot could never imagine that she would transmigrate into the body of famous cannon fodder within the book, wannabe villainess, Song Gwakkot, a girl sharing the same name. Eventually this character would be executed after a torturous life behind bars for her crimes against the imperial family. But, Han Gwakkot refuses to take this dreaded fate without a fight.
With her head strong personality and penchant for violence kicking in, she refuses to back down into the cowardly fate of Song Gwakkot. Instead, she will save herself and the new life growing inside of her, the reason for the character’s death in the first place… The main lead’s son.
So, obviously she will live a peaceful life without running into the female and male leads of course, right?
