Kill the Lights

Status: sidetrack 4 part1
Written and translated well enough that its hard to put the novel down after you start reading it. Main issue for me is the characters. I dont see the romance at all tbh. Basically Mason a mercenary dies and gets reborn into the body of a slutty gay drug addicted actor Haley. The Ceo ML admires the original Mason cuz of a past event and his disappearance/death brings back trauma. He has been stalking/watching over him until his death but the thing is he doesnt actually love a Mason in... more>> his original manly body (he actually says this) and only starts becoming cliche horny and pushy ML after Mason is reborn into the slutty girly Haley and thats what sticks out for me, its like he needs him to be reborn into the body of an uke before he starts getting ideas of fking him until he faints?? I dont get it at all. After ML discovers Haley is actually Mason he starts being extremely pushy and arrogant as the rich guy he is but I dont see any actual romance between their personalities or ML liking Mason for who he is other than his saviour or for his new slutty body. Basically all of Masons newfound sluttiness is blamed on his new body and I dont even remember the ML telling him straight out that he really loved him all he does is praise his slutty body and im like so do u like mason or his body which actually isnt even his?

I wouldnt mind if this story was the all smut no plot type either but somehow its stuck awkwardly in between? Like it takes ages to clear up the misunderstandings and all we get in the beginning is Masons wet dreams in which you dont rly get whats happening and ur like so do I fap here or not?

Some ppl might praise Mason alot for being an uke with an actual brain but in the end thats rendered useless in the face of his new body which makes him so weak and slutty and the only basis for his relationship with ML.

Tbh story could have been so much better if it was about Mason in his original body rather than forcefully pushing him into a new body just so he could fit into the typical uke box of being girly, slutty and ofc shorter and less fit than the ML like its some inherent requirement. <<less

You Boys Play Games Very Well

Very cute and funny relationship.

Never a sour moment - aka no stupid dog blood plots/ unnecessary drama created just to extend the story / forceful ML etc.

Every chapter is simply pure meng and laughter.

Recommended dose - read one a day before bedtime to cure depression!

Demon Boss in the Human World

First half of story was good. But then everything that it had built up was just trashed and thrown away by the way the MC and ML were forced together at the end. So much potential wasted...

How story starts

  • non typical shou protag aka not dumb, weak, unreasonably selfless or gets bullied hopelessly by ML - I actually really liked MC's cold, arrogant personality
  • decent entertainment circle plot
  • no apparent "insta-love"
  • good settings that could potentially build up great character development i.e. how does MC learn to care for the human world as well as other people? how does his unrevealed past affect his current self? how does his dangerous love plot with ML slowly unravel? - s*xy fight scenes and angst plz etc etc
How story ends

Spoiler
  • MC goes from being an atypical MC to literally being a typical cliche helpless MC
  • they throw away the entertainment plot to reveal the final big demon king that we totalllly didnt see coming
  • you thought there was no insta love? jokes on you turns out ML actually loved MC from another lifetime and of course the person from his past that he so cares about turns out to be MC, #1 typical ML rule: no one can even come close to how he feels about MC, in fact lets just ctrl + delete his feelings about literally anyone other than MC and make him a yandere
  • lets also throw away the side characters, ML is too OP
  • lets trash the ML's cold aloof personality as well, make him super jealous and then super caring typical ML at any random point, 100% ignoring the fact that this kid is supposed to be a socially awkward and isolated loner
  • MC's feelings about ML? Well it's too hard to write actual character development so let's just suddenly ramp them up from non-existent to my-life-is-meaningless-without-you by the magic of *you guessed it* rape! Yes lets make it super amazing dub-con rape by making the demon king possess MC and then without real logic, randomly confess and initiate s*x with ML

The character with the best potential in novel is tbh FCZ. Now I didn't support him at first since I felt like the main reason people liked him was purely because at the start he had the complete *Im the ML* starter pack and people love to go for the guy that seems like the ML purely because he is the ML. 90% of people ship the MC with the first guy to show up purely because in the end in most cases he is the one true destined ML but

Spoiler

FCZ actually deviates from the stupid typical "I'll do anything for you ML".
