The Male Lead Is Mine, one of the most popular Korean novels, is now available to read officially in English. The Male Lead is Mine is a slice of life and heartwarming medieval fantasy of a woman lacking grand ambition and only wishes to live a quiet and peaceful life with the male lead, the man whom she had fallen in love with.

The story tells the life of a modern-day woman who reincarnates in a fantasy novel as Aris Horissen, the novel’s supporting character destined to suffer. She wasn’t sure what had happened. She was just reading a book that suddenly piqued her interest. Before closing it, she ended up pitying Aris, the daughter of the marquis who refused to marry the male lead and ran away from home; Aris met a wicked man in the streets and suffered severe physical and emotional distress, leading to her bitter ending. The modern-day woman felt sympathy for Aris as she fell asleep thinking about how Aris could have avoided her bitter ending if she hadn’t been stubborn to the very end.

When she awoke, she had become Aris Horissen herself. Realizing the bitter ending that awaits her, she decides to change the future and snatches the male lead for herself.
According to the original novel, it would take two-and-a-half years for them to meet, but she couldn’t wait that long. She’ll have to make the first move. With that thought in mind, she decides to write him a letter. There was no time to waste, after all; she’ll make sure that the sweet and caring male lead is hers

Information on Stock Availability


We order books based on previous backorders [which is now indefinitely closed] and Notify Me requests. Adding a book to your wishlist does not guarantee it will be restocked, but we also take note of it as a factor. Requesting on the Notify Me section on sold out books lets us know the amount of people actually interested in purchasing it should we have a copy.

Filling out the Notify Me requests holds no promise that we'll get it and it won't give you false hope or require immediate payment.

Once stocks arrive and there are on-hand extras, those who filled out the notify me form will be immediately emailed that it's available. Those who wishlisted it and subscribed for email marketing will also receive an email albeit slower.

However, not all Notify Me requests will be accommodated as some could have no stocks for months and it is indeterminable when there would be new reprints. Our stocks rely solely on the availability from our supplier.

Notify Me emails are system generated and only emails you when 1 (ONE) available stock is input on the product you signed up for. Stocks can be depleted quick so it's best to act fast once you receive an email!
