For the past decade, Kim Dokja has led a monotonous life as an ordinary office employee whose only hobby is reading the web novel ‘Three Ways to Survive in a Ruined World.’ He has been the sole reader of this novel for ten years, and has reached its final chapter, 3149.

After finally finishing the last chapter, he receives a strange text from the author who thanks him for bringing the story to life. In addition, the author sends Dokja a gift as a token of gratitude and informs him of the process for monetizing the novel. Shortly after, the web novel is removed and the events from the story start to unfold in reality with the emergence of a creature known as ‘Dokkaebi’.

In order to survive the different scenarios and alter the outcome, Kim Dokja must rely on his knowledge from the novel and work together with his loyal allies.

Dokja and Yoo Joonghyuk, the main characters of the web novel, would need to collaborate and reconcile their differences in order to successfully rescue the world.
