Basically the story is about a guy who struggled in the entertainment industry for 7 years? I'm not sure. When he was young, he was arrogant, self centered and egoistical brat who though he could use his group as a stepping stone to raise in life, unfortunately, he suffered with an accident and when he finally realized the value of his group mate, the relationship between him and the rest of the members could no longer be restored.
When he finally gave up his career and the group and decided to retire, he wakes up right before their debut. At this point he alread had another mentally, tired with the struggle in the entertainment industry and no longer feeling like pursuing a musical career, all he wants is to fade out and just chill, having no ties with this complicated industry.
Unfortunately for him, he already signed the contract and he is tied to Irisdecent for the next few years, so he decided to take another approach, let the rest of the members take the limelight and he would just mop in the shadows, and as soon as he can he would break the contract and retire, cutting his ties with this industry like we wants to.
But, well, nothing goes according to his wishes. In this new present, he is seen as a kind hearted senior who is actually cold on the outside but warm inside, a classic case of tsundere, and his bandmates are deeply attracted by this senior of them who seen to be adorable. This brings new revelations about his relationship with the rest of the members, and a completely new dynamic to the group.
Not used to being pampered, trusted and relied on, our MC is deeply stressed by this new side of his old group mates, furthermore, this group mates are kind enough to make sure the MC has his share of limelight, even though he says he doesn't need it...
First major frustration is her kid, Haohao is definitely adorable I get it, but come on, the kid get kidnapped and he rescued it, okay that's cool, but instead of giving it back, he hides it and then bring a woman out of nowhere, makes her the mother and then when he asks the kid he clearly has no idea who JiMan was, still he uses the boy to make her do the impossible to be with her child.
Second point, and I think I didn't even need to mention this, but he was part of the reason her whole family was killed, he was very aware about the second prince intentions and yet he didn't support the third prince, much less warn him. He has always been a treacherous bastard. When JiMan had to seek the first prince because of this I was so sad for het, after all the prince tried to murder her child when she was still pregnant.
Another frustration is her general situation, how many things had she swallowed down, abuse after abuse, form him, from the other woman. In the very beginning when he canned her as a punishment, I thought, with my naivety, that it was gonna get better, she wouldn't be abused right and left like this in the future, just persist, happiness will come, and then around ch190 I was like, when will it come? And then when peace finally came, BOOOM, Major bomb fell from the sky and now I'm so frustrated, because she has to and she propably will end up with that bastard.
Male lead is a manipulative, abusive, unreliable, controlling, jealous, arrogant, childish, frustrating, bastard of a husband. And I feel so bad for her. Honestly I came to the point that it does not matter what he does to atone himself, he will never ever deserve her, and it's killing me to think that they will end up together. [/spoiler]
This is another frustration but what is the deal with the second male lead how can he be so ridiculous? He help murder her family, he knew about the second prince and he still wants to make her his concubine? What the f**k, how can this males be this bad, it is like they are competing to see who can wrong the girl the most!
