    The premise is that the MC's soul has lived countless lives as different beings on different worlds, and this is its first time being born as a human. Some of his lives had abilities unique to that species or had magic. The MC was able to save a "diary" for each of his lives in a library-like soul construct. If and when he has accumulated enough mana, he can open a room related to the quantity of mana and read the diaries of the lives stored there. From these diaries, he can retrieve one of his previous skills. At his current age (and mana level?), he can only have one active skill at a time. We don't know if that'll change as he gets older.

    Starting as a self aware baby, he decides that he likes the attention and also likes to help others. He uses his special ability to entice people. Because his mana is low, his skills' effect are weak and doesn't affect everybody which conveniently deflects questions on why he's so appealing.

    The translations is fair and the writing style is a bit simplistic, but ok. So far, the author is going for a cutesy feel, but that may change when the MC is older.

    I don't know if it is the translations or the author trying to be subtle, but these high-40s chapters were hard to understand for me. The dialogs felt circular with implies hints and no one wanting to make a clear statement. The recent translation are a bit sloppier, though. Words are often missing.

    Hard to say, the MC is just 6 or 7 years old.

    Well my latest read is from chapter 299 he's about 16-17 years old and there was no romance (which i'm really glad for because harem makes the novel so much bad for me)

    I really like how the novel was focused on his rise to being a superstar and not that totally op cause he really work super hard and love acting so much

    Seojun's movie character's dual identities is confusing.
