About Who Is Real
Who is Real is now online, leading Doctors into an ink-painted world. Taking place in Yen, Lava, Kroos and Mr.Nothing embark on a journey to look for Nian's sister, Dusk. After encountering a series of bizarre phenomenons, they found themselves being drawn into a world full of ink created by Dusk.
