this is where he even made the female lead forced to make hard decisions just so that she can give in to him and accept his request.
If I remember correctly, after a certain accident that cause our female lead and male lead to separate, the male lead decided to marry another woman just because his family approved and she is his life saviour. Not only that, the woman has said that the son belongs to the male lead. Even though, after many many chapters, it has been proven that the child does not belong to him but I could not understand why he wanted to marry her when there are many other way to repay her. If LL did not like the female lead anymore, I would have understand however both LL and female lead were still loving each other. The most heart wrenching part was that the accident was due to the male lead saving her.
There was a period of time of their marriage where he forced the female lead to marry him just to save the Male lead. He tried his best to save the marriage and the love life however it was to no avail. After the female lead went back to him, she realised she was pregnant with LL’s child and begged BZH to keep the child. BZH wasn’t willing but slowly he was willing to take care of the child that the female lead had given birth but the female lead was still fearful and didn’t give up escaping.
Even though, eventually, they were forced to divorce because of the female lead’s brother’s threaten, he still loved her.
I guess the saddest part of his story was shown on the extras at the end of the novel where he died alone dreaming about if he didn’t make certain decisions and made extra effort to correct his mistakes. I guess this part was to comfort readers by showing a different ending.
For example, when the woman who stole her ex boyfriend always tried to look for trouble with her, she always stayed calm and wasnt angry.
Another example would be a phrase that was stated in the novel where it goes along the line that “As woman, we don’t need to live on men.” Honestly, this phrase is something that I agree very much on. This is because I think even after a breakup, it is not the end of the world. Yes, you may be sad, disappointed or even angry but is it worth it? I think anyone can just climb back up and live on their lives and embrace new opportunities other than love to have the happiness that you want.
When there was a love rival appeared where a woman who liked the male lead for a long time appeared, the female lead still acted very calmly. After that, she had to go on a trip for a signing event for her novels, in the plane she has sudden random thoughts and worries for whether the male lead would have a change of heart. But quickly, she told herself that there is no point in worrying about that and what is done would be what is done. She would only need to go back to face it and solve it. And she trust him this once.
I think this part is very memorable and very true in my opinion. If the male lead were to have a change of heart, the only thing she can do is face it. It taught me that if you trust someone, you should just stick to that decision and if something goes wrong just clean it up and there is no point in overworrying.
The story is technically dissected into before Qin Mo knew that Fu Jiu (Bao Jiu) is a girl, after Qin Mo knew that Fu Jiu is a girl, Qin Mo suspicion of Fu Jiu is Hacker Z and after Qin Mo confirmed his suspicion on Fu Jiu (Bao Jiu) to be Hacker Z.
Before QM knew that FJ is a girl, the entire story is rather hilarious. FJ has to hide her secret in close proximity since QM always keep her close by. As readers, we can feel how tense she is whenever her secret may be exposed. It is quite understandable on how she is always nervous and worried since our male lead, QM, is very sharp and smart. FJ then lived in fear of being found out. As slowly, QM falls in love with FJ where he even thought he is gay. The scenes were very hilarious. At this part of the story I find the story still rather light.
After QM knew that FJ is a girl, he openly shows his affection even though people who didn’t know misunderstands him. Regardless, he shows his utmost care and love. Which slowly progressed into his susipicion of FJ to be Hacker Z. At this point of the story, I rather feel sorry for the male lead since both of them have to live with misunderstandings. On the bright side, Qin Mo and Fu Jiu still stick together regardless of the misunderstandings
except for one point of the story. But don’t worry, his subconscious actions still shows his love for BJ.
From my interpretation, BJ only truly love QM after she found out that he is her childhood friend that she treasured a lot.
If I remembered correctly, it was when the real FYH soul came back, she started hesitating and worrying which caused her to fall ill. After a while, she got over it with the help of the 7th prince and 9th prince.
There is one time where he took the female lead’s chance in acting a particular drama/show (I can’t remember) due to it having many intimate scenes. The female lead was mad which is understandable. This lead to them arguing and having a Cold War. At first, the male lead didn’t understand why but he slowly found it lonely without her. Even with the Cold War, he still protected her indirectly.
I honestly love the part on the confession the most. The hesitation and the built up energy to confess after hearing what the female lead said and wanted. It is very sweet. Other examples would be how the male lead did not hesitate to trust the female lead. Of course, there was once he hesitated but he slowly realised that it is not worth thinking about since he only can’t bear to part with the female lead.
I am also a huge fan of HM. But I would say that this novel is indeed better than Hidden Marriage in certain ways. This novel compared to Hidden Marriage contains less drama. Ning Xi in this novel is calm, collected and is someone who is meticulous. She may be counted as cold and less passionate to some but she still express her love and affection even though she doesn’t really show it. The Ning Xi in this novel is more realistic. Ning Xi in HM is much more outgoing and passionate in showing her love. Her personality is much more open and daring. Other examples of similarity would be how the male lead treats the female lead with utmost care. However, there are obvious differences. In this novel, it is honestly not written based on the dramatic scenes that she faced when facing enemies and in her work life as seen in Hidden Marriage. This novel, Return of the goddess is based on snippets of their life and even their love life is not described in details. That is why, I think both novels are good it is just based on what you as a reader like.
When the male lead agreed to live together with the female lead, the female lead was very happy but hesitant. And that’s when the male lead confessed to the female lead of his real feelings. This is because the male lead thinks that for a couple to work it is best to be honest towards each other. And of course, this ideology is similar to the female lead which can be shown in the chapters later on.
Honestly, the main thing that touches my heart the most is one of the chapters in the extras of the novel where the female lead and male lead faced some mountain bandits and was stuck in a very dangerous mountain when they were travelling and I believe fell the cliff, the female lead went back to her previous life. She was really very sad since she couldn’t let go of her relationship with the male lead and even written in a notebook of how she lived in the past ten years. Her family of her previous life reminded her that she has to marry her fiancé at that period and she was very reluctant because of not wanting to let go of the love with the male lead. She later know that her current fiancé in that era is the male lead when the male lead visited her and she happily married. It was explained that the male lead followed her soul and found out that they are in a different era and that the body she returned to is her original body. His soul lingered in the hospital for days and later found out a body that has faced an accident, that is also similar in age to the female lead, has passed on. As they were about to announce the time of death, the male lead’s soul entered that body and it happened to be the female lead’s fiancé of that era.
I think it is honestly very touching. And I was honestly hoping that they will have a continuation of that extra but sadly there is. Anyways, it just shows how much they love for each other and this is just one example.
She is immature that is for sure and very stubborn. She does not think ahead. This is for example when she wants to drug Song Hui but in the end it was Li Song who got drugged. I feel that she did not plan much ahead on the “what if”. She deserved the ending she received. Though it is very cruel of Li Song to do that to her.
He was straight up annoying when he was younger. As he gets older, I kind of pity him since he starts to regret as well. Though I pity him, I don’t think he is a good person at all. I find that he is very obsessive towards the female lead instead of loving the female lead.
Though they ended up together in the extras, through the female lead’s past life. I honestly don’t think they will have a happy ending if both of them are together since it is a matter of fact that his family goes against the male lead and with the female lead’s past life she is not as confident and witty as compared to her rebirth.
In her past life, she dated Jay after meeting him from a drama. The nickname Xiao Ai is given by Jay. From that drama, she joined Jay’s management company and was under the same manager. The manager was in love with Jay. After knowing about the relationship, she continuously to try to separate them by cutting resources of Xiao Ai. After a while, she was criticised as being the third party in the relationship where in reality it was the manager who continuously to seek for Jay’s attention and love by threatening suicide etc. Before meeting the accident, she received a call from Jay where he told her that the manager has given birth to a child. Xiao Ai was really sad. Then, she suddenly met a car accident and died and was reborn.
When she was first reborn, she thought she was still in her past life so she used her phone to call Jay for help. However, Jay wasn’t the one who answered the phone but it was Bao Jun Yan. Bao Jun Yan then approach and help Xiao Ai immediately.
One example, where I won’t reveal too much details, is when they were stuck in the desert, he gave all his water to the female lead without letting the female lead know by adding sand to his bottle instead. The female lead only knew about it after he was unconscious in the hospital.
That few chapters made me cry buckets.
that if I remembered correctly, he is older than the female lead. Haha I remembered that the female lead was very surprised but angry since she treated him like a child and which I believed changed infront of him (if my memory is correct). Another secret is that he is a wang ye from another country with mysterious past.
the family that adopted our female lead when she was in the foreign country (the country where the male lead is a wang ye in) where she becomes their daughter. She was adopted in just because she held the bracelet of their daughter which passed on (that story was really sad but I wouldn’t spoil it) and the mother has mistook her for her daughter. Of course, she confessed to the truth to the other family members and the family members had adopted her and slowly accepted her.
I love the family because the brothers were very smart and they helped each other. Even though at first they didn’t really accepted her and was in doubt, but as it slowly goes they accepted her because she truly helped the family. They discuss problems as a family as well where our female lead gives great idea. They knew that she wanted to use the identity for a certain reason but I remembered the father of the family has said that if they have enough money and power to help her, they will do that.
I feel that even though the mother of the family knew that our female lead isn’t really her daughter, but she still love her like her real daughter.
In my opinion, this part of the story was like compensating the lack of family love that the female lead was lacking which was really sweet.
I guess what I felt sad about reading is that till the end she has to be defensive and always on guard. That sometimes I feel that she herself is tired of living this life which was seen when she sighed while looking up at the sky on the last few chapters.
