Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke’s Mansion was originally a web novel written by Milcha that was serialized from 2016 to 2018. A manhwa webtoon adaptation with art by Whale was serialized on KakaoPage from September 2017 to March 20202. Tapptoon is publishing the webtoon digitally, while Yen Press licensed it in English and describes the first volume of the fantasy romance story as:
Eunha Park was just a regular girl desperate to get into college, but when she finally does, her elation is cut short as she’s pushed off a roof—only to wake up as Raeliana McMillan, a character from a novel whose death serves as the catalyst for the story’s events. But Raeliana refuses to die a second time and is determined to change her fate, no matter what!
