Synopsis for Whale, Kanojo ga Koushakutei ni Itta Riyuu
Following a mysterious death, Park Eunha enters the world of a novel. She is revived as a minor character, Raeliana McMillan, who is to be poisoned to death by her own fiancé. To break up with her dangerous fiancé, she offers a surreptitious deal to the novel’s male lead, Noah Wynknight, but ends up having affairs with other men who aren’t part of her plan. Noah Wynknight, of inescapable but suspicious charm; honest Justin Shamal, who only loves one person; or Adam Taylor, who she has a soft spot for for no reason every time she sees him. Will Raeliana successfully emerge from this crisis and will she create a new ending for herself? Who will be the one to join Raeliana in her new ending?
