The Extras Refuse Obsession is a funny story but with quite a traditional plot. I’m still enjoying the story quite a bit, regardless.

The Extras Refuse Obsession Summary
I thought I am just a one liner unnamed commoner extra.
Until the villainous duke comes in to light and pursues a single young lady.
“Duke Cedric is already halfway through the Empire. I heard he’s coming to this area this month.”
Why is the bloody duke looking for his youngest sister who went missing five years ago.
“Rose hair and golden eyes.”
That sister’s description is the same as mine.
I think my life is ruined.MU
The Extras Refuse Obsession is an isekai story where our female lead believes she’s an extra of little importance. Our heroine doesn’t apparently even appear in the original novel.
In the original novel, the villain is a Duke Cedric goes insane after his sister disappears. After he goes insane and kills a bunch of people, he sees the novel’s original female lead. Due to reminding him of his sister, he kidnaps her and causes the emperor to kill him.
Apparently the emperor loves the female lead of the original novel. So obviously didn’t take kindly on the duke kidnapping his fiancé.
As for this story, it’s focusing on comedy, featuring a lot of comedic-relief. For instance, her friend is selling her out for 6000 gold. At least the friend keeps her promise not to sell her out for 5000 gold!
So the world they’re in features magic, which includes portals. This shortens their trip down from 15 days to almost instantly. I find the female lead’s change in opinions a bit odd, but I suppose she comes to terms with her own death.
Recommendation: Although the plot itself seems basic, I’m enjoying the manhwas execution. I definitely hope this becomes licensed!
