What would you do if you found out that you were, in fact, a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously.
Eun Dan Oh is a 17-year-old high-school student from a wealthy family who attends a prestigious academy. She suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live long past her teenage years and she is engaged to her long-time crush who despises her. However, when Dan Oh realizes she is experiencing long gaps in her memory, she discovers that she is really just a character in a Korean webtoon entitled Secret, and that all of her actions, along with everyone else’s, are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With this newfound knowledge of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own story-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see.
