And he just kept digging his own grave
The good path... (Spoiler for Ascendance of a Bookworm below)
Depends on how you play your cards though
He's dumb. Should've said he reincarnated, and that everyone reincarnates and gets memory wipe, but he somehow "awakened" his memories. That, and he should foreshadow it for them, like keep saying he has dreams of another man's life or something, and pretend they're getting more and more detailed. Actually, he could even pretend he doesn't remember his previous life, and tell his parents he has a "feeling" or suspects it's his previous life. (With that said, I think he didn't have time to tell them slowly in the novel from what I remember)
i read a wuxia where the parents learn that his son died and this new soul entered and they still acted kinda like this one, so pretty much yeah, never tell if you isekai, like with cheating you simply dont say anything
I dont remember this in the manhwa. It still not there huh?
The saddest part is that the mother couldn't get over it, even after a few years.
