Summary of The Villain Discovered My Identity

Although she had been a promising practitioner of kendo in the past, due to an accident she was forced to lead a plain life.

After Seo Yuri gets into a car accident during a trip back home, she reincarnates into the novel, “The Song of the Moon,” and becomes the elder twin sister of a side character who meets a destructive ending– Selena.

Selena hopes to prevent the destruction of her family, however, she is forced to take the place of her runaway brother, Celestine, in the knights’ squadron! Will she be able to avoid the villainous Crown Prince, Ignis, and survive?! – Mangadex

In the story we’re introduced to a set of twins and their father. The twins, one boy and girl, are children of a famous swordsman. Due to conscription, the male twin was supposed to be enlisted but he runs away. Of course this means the female twin has to pretend to be her twin brother.

She first curses her brother out for being an A-hole, but it’s later revealed he had a good reason to leave. Maybe he should have said something before scurrying off, though.

The Villain Discovered My Identity Ignis
Now, the female twin is actually a great swordsman but she’s trying to hide this to prevent attention going to her. However, that fails and the prince, Ignis, discovers her potential but not her true identity.

In the end, she becomes an escort for the prince and has to prevent him from further discovering her identity. We’re definitely seeing some feelings develop, though!

Despite the initial fear, she’s still able to maintain a friendly relationship with him. She even manages to fall asleep in his bed! Celestine is sure carefree, right?

Celestine Evan, as in the female twin pretending to be her brother, is hilarious. She’s very interested in money and develops a repertoire with Ignis, which is funny.

The way she gains his trust is also interesting and it shows the various issues each person has from past traumas. She fears getting found out, since Ignis takes badly to what he considers betrayals.

It’s clear that Ignis does care for Celestine (Selena) but we’re not quite there with the romance. In fact, Ignis is a bit of an evil character and causes trouble that Celestine has to take care of.

We also have a different character that will pop up, Letio. Now, in the actual novel universe, he was initially the good guy. He is the hidden prince and can technically become emperor.

Only problem is he’s like a child with the capabilities of wielding a sword and killing people. Not a good look to have one of those running around.

The way the title hints at something, only to give us a twist is also interesting. There’s various twists in the story, some are really unpredictable and leave us feeling quite shocked.

I cannot wait for when Celestine is revealed to be Selena, but I have a feeling that is going to take forever to happen.

Recommendation: YES, it’s sooo good.
