He died while wandering around as an unknown extra.
He didn’t know whether it was an accident or suicide because it was a very old memory.
After that, he was born again, died, and born again. Somehow his memories were not erased. All the memories of his life piled up inside him.
With countless lives, he built a library of life.
Some lives were too long and huge, so he put them in the corner of the library, and some were so precious that he placed them in a place where he could easily see them.
After his first life, he didn’t reincarnate as a human being again.
Actually, he didn’t want to be born as a human, so he was okay with it. Therefore, he has been reborn as other creatures over and over again, and never been reborn as a human. This feat was actually amazing.
Every time he reincarnated, he seemed to have gradually forgotten that he was a human being in the beginning.

“Bu Bu Bu.” The baby laughed.
Lee Min-Joon and Seo Eun-Hye, a couple who just married, felt a warm sensation deep down their chests.
“Our baby is so cute…”
Lee Min-Joon also nodded at Seo Eun-Hye’s praise.
The seven-month-old couple’s baby was so gentle that it was truly a blessing.
He eats well, behaves well, and didn’t get sick anywhere. The other couples with babies greatly envied Lee Min-Joon and Seo Eun-Hye for having such a baby.
“Seojun! Lee Seojun!”
“Hehehe.” The baby laughed. Even though he was still a baby, his round eyes twinkled, and his features were clear.
His smiling face was like the spring sun. He was an adorable baby as if he only inherited the beautiful features of his mom and dad.
“Huwah.” The couple lowered down their voices as the baby yawned.
Seo Eun-Hye patted the baby’s belly while lying on the baby’s bed lightly. Lee Min-Joon pressed the button on the CD player in the drawer, and a cute nursery rhyme flowed gently.

Baby Lee Seojun opened his eyes.
‘Um.’ Lee Seojun thought.
Everything was so big.
The door in front of him was too big. It was the door of the library of Life, which contained all the memories of Lee Seojun’s past lives.
The baby’s hand, which was the same size as a maple leaf, tried to open the big library’s door.
Yet, the door wouldn’t buldge.
It was obvious. The library was too big and he was too small.
He was sometimes born as a creature with substandard intelligence. He also had the instinct to stop by the library full of his memories.
Having no intelligence, it was like being a fool that would absorb everything with his eyes without thinking.
Sometimes it was more than the capability of the “outer body,” which resulted in the body breaking from time to time.
After a few of such deaths, he shut the library tightly, and the door would only open when his mind was healthy enough to open it.
“I give up opening this huge door.”
With Lee Seojun’s previous life, this large door would previously open wide just by touching it.
Lee Seojun stirred his tiny hand. Like a revolving door, the large door disappeared from the side, and a smaller door appeared in front of Lee Seojun.
There were many doors to the library. Every time he reincarnated as some ‘fool’ species, a new library appropriate to his current appearance would be formed.
This was a new ability if the library that he made after many death of his foolish selves.
He made it easy to use. The larger the creature he reincarnated as, the larger the door, and vice versa.
The size of the book containing the memories of each life also varied. If it were from an old and big monsters’ lives, they would be big and thick books, and if it were a small and short lived monster, it would be a small and thin book.
Lee Seojun kept waving his hands and the door became smaller and smaller.
As a baby, he can’t open a five-story building-sized door, same with a three-story building-sized door. And finally, a blue door, as big as a dog’s house, came out. It was the smallest library here.
‘It’s the library I built when I was a slime.’
Lee Seojun sat on the floor in front of a small door and agonized over his death as a slime, a fool who died three days after his birth.
The appearance in the library has changed along with his current body. Now, being seven months old, sitting on the floor all by himself was a great feat.
A few weeks ago, he could only lie in front of the library door, staring at the tightly closed door. Sometimes, he would turned upside down and tried to crawl.
Perhaps, because his head was big, he was having difficulties sitting down, so Lee Seojun could only lay down again.
‘If it were me from my recent previous life, I would have already opened it…….’
The way to open the door was simple. All he had to do was touch the door of the library.
Lee Seojun tried hard to turn and crawl, but he could only kick in the air.
‘This human baby’s growth is just too slow.’
The only books that he could see through this kind of door would be useless slime books. Those books would only contain words such as jump or gibberish. In the this library there would be useless books like fairy books, which are all about flying with glitter.
When he was born again, he studied the situation and recorded the skills necessary for his life. There may be some lives he had forgotten because he reincarnated many times.
This was the first time he was reborn as a human, so it was necessary to look through some books in order to what was appropriate to do and what was necessary to have.
‘Well… I don’t think I need to fuss over this now.’
Eating, sleeping, and pooping were the only things a baby needed right now…
Of course, every time he would be reborn again, he would remember practicing the ability [Elf’s basic breathing method].
Even though he was just a baby, his brilliant looks were all thanks to the basic breathing techniques he took from his elven life before.
Lee Seojun also lowered his legs and turned himself upside down. Now he finds it easy to flip over.
After turning and lying on the floor, he noticed a very tiny door next to the door as big as the dog house.
It has the same size as Lee Seojun’s face.
This small door was a dusted black door, so it didn’t seem to be noticeable.
‘I’ve never seen any door like this before.….’
While confused, he reached out and pressed the pattern of the door.
The door opened slowly.
He thrust his head into the door.
He could only enter up to his shoulder, but it was okay. There was only one book inside it.
Lee Seojun pulled out his head, put his arm inside, and tried to take out the book inside. It was a book he had never seen before.
The book that was taken out the door looked very old. It was filled with dust, and every piece of paper seemed to have turn into dust and ready to fly away.
Lee Seojun slowly opened the book.
The book was written in Korean.
Lee Seojun knew from his memory, that the books recorded in Korean were his initial lives. After he reincarnated as monsters many times, he started using the Monster’s language to write the book. Back then, he thought it was easier that way.
However, this book was all written in Korean.
This must be his first life.
The only thing Lee Seojun remembers is that he was an unnamed actor. He didn’t even remember how he died.
The baby opened an old book on the floor and read it slowly. Although he couldn’t understand many Korean words now, he slowly recalled the language from his memory and read it.
The book was interesting.
The man was also called Lee Seojun, like himself now, but he felt like it was from a stranger because his memory from that time was blurry.
The story was about a man, who tried hard to become an actor, but died in an accident while filming. He didn’t even have his name known in the public.
A short word was written at the end of the book. It must have been what Lee Seojun thought at the end before he died.
I want to be an actor even if I am born again. I want to be the main character in my next life.
The baby sat in front of the old book, which was lying open on the floor. He was lost in thought for a while.
After having experienced many lives, he felt a little nervous. He never thought that there was a time where he had lived a hard life like this. And he also left a wished that haven’t been fulfilled yet.
There wasn’t something like that in his previous lives.
At first, he was busy surviving, and later, life was so boring.
The baby suddenly grinned. Somehow he felt influenced by the book.
All right! Let’s do it, actor!
The baby looked at the book before his eyes.
‘No, let’s not.’
He tapped on the book as if to console his previous life who died in vain.
‘Why be an actor? When you could be a superstar!’
‘I will be a superstar that will go down in history.’
The baby promised in front of the unknown actor’s book.
