Rebirth: How a Loser Became a Prince Charming

Really bad writing. A somewhat ugly guy travels back in time and gains a handsome body but shows almost no reaction to such supernatural events. MC also appears a bit too childish which is weird since he, technically, has been an adult for a long, long time.

Have read a bit through the raws. 3.5/5 for me. The MC here isn't as bad as those in your typical cultivation novels. But he isn't much better, either.

The author, while trying to depict the differences in perspective between a cultivator and ordinary people, unfortunately isn't able to avoid making the MC seem like a snob.
Spoiler

MC just used to be an incompetent, down-on-luck young master before he got really lucky. What's he got to be so arrogant about? To make things even worse, he is trying to inculcate the same attitude into his young daughter.

I remember a scene where the MC admonishes his daughter for calling her (well-intentioned) caretaker names. He impresses upon her the need to respect her well-wishers- a very heartwarming scene, indeed, of a father instilling values into his child. But then, he just had to add, "Even if they are just ants" (or something to that effect). It makes me wonder: What exactly did the daughter learn from this?

As for the name-changing thing that other reviewers have mentioned, while I can somewhat understand wanting to give one's child a native name as a tribute to one's cultural heritage/ancestry, what I don't understand is his selfishness of wanting his daughter to have both his surname as well as a given name of his choosing. Doesn't the mother (who carried her for nine months and raised her, putting her career on hold) get the right to a part of the daughter's full name? He even manipulates the daughter into rejecting the first name her mother gave her, just bcuz it's an English one.
