Zhui Xu


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

A relaxing story of a business tycoon who, sick of machinations and struggle, returned to the medieval world and married into a merchant family to become a “zhui xu,” a husband that lives in the wife’s home. Even though his intentions were not so, he could not avoid the matters of family, country and world.

“There was once a person that stood at the top of the golden pyramid,

with the innumerable cheap jealousy and envy of people,

he walked this road escorted by tens of thousands of people,

yet he could not escape the long and lonely sleep under the gravestone. ”

This novel combines the major plot points of the Chinese novel Great Tang Idyll and the Japanese novel Risou no Himo Seikatsu. As the description says, the main character goes back in time becomes the newly married live-in husband of his wife's family. I'm not sure how much I can describe without it being a spoiler but I'll try anyway...

... more>>

The main character dies in modern times and is revived in the recently married body of a meek scholar. The wife's family had him marry in because they wanted someone who would prevent the only daughter of the family from marrying out and would also not try to take control of their family. However, because he was an extremely successful and brilliant person in his previous life, he begins to act outside of their expectations.


As of the latest chapter, you get a good understanding of the characters' designs and how the author will want to move in the future.

I'm writing all of this more out of urgency because the translator makes it sound like he does not want to translate it anymore and I hope that someone else will give this a chance and continue translating it. <<less

This hits a lot of the plot points you've read before: successful MC is betrayed in the modern era, dies, is reincarnated into a good for nothing ancient Chinese character that had just been married to a really talented hottie. What makes this story interesting and a great read so far is that the MC is male, marrying into her family. He doesn't have cheats, and he doesn't use his modern knowledge to become the strongest under heaven, make alltheguns, or all the... more>> other super powered reincarnation tropes.

Non spoiler synopsis? When you've reached the top of the world by clawing and scheming and see the landscape is a barren wasteland, you take your second chance. Pass up the temptation of ego and power. The life of a husband in name only is a good one. <<less

Probably the most boring beginning ever! First 11 chapters were about daily life of 100y.o. grandpa who lost all desire to live. So Boring. Couple times i even thought that mistakenly re read previous chapter! The same boring stories about his boring daily life. No actions, no development, no conflicts, no movements, no interactions, with vegetable as an MC. His second name is depression, he is whining about everything:past life, present life, his status, his boredom and loneliness, current age, environment, and even about his own proactive... more>> thoughts!!!! And nothing, absolutely zero actions...only tears and chess... If not description I would thought that this novel is some prank for suicidals.

Daily life of my grandpa is much more interesting. And to make things worse, every chapter is pretty big!


He get up, washed face, cleaned teeth, made exercises, ate breakfast, bath, went to his room. Then repetitive explanations:"his status is low; family relationships are complicated; his wife is perfect, jade skin, long legs and charm, beautiful, smartest and most outstanding woman ever". Then he had dinner went for a walk, drank tea, played chess with random grandpas and went to sleep. End. Next chapter- copypaste with ads about his complaints and whining about his boredom...How fun and entertaining


The fresh parts were about boring poetry, I'm bad in chinese poetry but at least something not about his wife(they doesn't even speak with each other), chess and his pitiful life.

I don't want to read further, maybe will wait for 20 translated chapters. Hope there would be first move/action. But one thing is clear, this vegetable doesn't deserve his second chance. <<less
