It’s about a fantasy-romance genre drama . Eun Dan Oh is told as a character from a comic titled ” secret “. The role he believed to be the main. At first. But his interaction with the Dried Squid Fairy opened his eyes that he was just an extra.
As a spectator, there are two situations that must be understood automatically. “stage” situations and “shadow” situations. Not all characters are able to realize these two situations. Only Eun Dan Oh, Lee Do Hwa, and the Dried Squid Fairy can afford it.
The Secret Comic Universe was designed by the author for all extras to support the performance of the main characters: Oh Nam Joo and Yeo Joo Da who are told to have a romance. In accordance with their name, Namjoo in Korean is defined as the male lead. While Yeojoo is defined as the female lead.
Joo Da is told is a scholarship child who is constantly bullied, while Nam Joo is the son of the owner of an elite foundation where they attend school. The classic romance building between the rich and the poor.
In the “stage” Lee Do Hwa is positioned as the second lead male . The man who complements Nam Joo and Baek Kyung’s best friend who also loves Yeo Ju Da. Eun Dan Oh is positioned as a victim of unrequited love. His love for Baek Kyung did not bear fruit. Tragically it lasted for 10 years. Baek Kyung’s company runs into trouble and expects investment from Dan Oh’s father’s company. This business polemic further sharpens Baek Kyung’s rude behavior towards Dan Oh.
The principle understood by those who are aware of this comic world is: they must live their destiny in a “stage” situation. but in the “shadow” situation they are free to be themselves.

Ha Roo’s presence disrupts the storyline. Ha Roo is in danger of being removed from the story. But Ha Roo followed his heart. He also loves Dan Oh. Ha Roo also wants to live. Want to be happy. want to be with Dan Oh.
In the parallel universe , it turns out that Dan Oh and Ha Roo are the main characters in another comic titled “Flowers”. The existence of the Dried Squid Fairy is getting increasingly gray and it is also starting to make him suspicious: is he a story writer?
