100,000/Hour Professional Stand-in

Description

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

Ji Fanyin realized the moment she transmigrated over that she was a stand-in, a substitute for her younger twin sister, Ji Xinxin.

“Sure, I can be her stand-in. Here is my list of prices. Take a look at it first, and make sure to reserve a slot in advance. I won’t accept any last-minute calls, and do take note that it’ll only be a platonic relationship. Thanks for your cooperation,” she said.

In a western restaurant, a rich young master looked at her with eyes filled with affection as he said, “Xinxin, I would like to ask you out for a movie tomorrow night…”

An alarm suddenly went off.

Ji Fanyin took a glance at her phone before reining in her business smile, saying, “Time’s up. I need to rush for my next appointment. Make sure to foot the tab, and farewell.”

The rich young master’s smile froze up. “I’ll reserve four hours for tomorrow’s movie.”

In the middle of the night, a drunk, tyrannical young master dialed her number and whined, “Big sis, when will you come over to meet me?”

“In order to ensure the quality of service, this call will be recorded. It’s four in the morning right now, and my services will be ten times the usual price. Are you certain you want to proceed?” asked Ji Fanyin.

“… Hurry up and start acting!”

Ji Fanyin’s phone suddenly rang in the midst of a date with a domineering CEO at Tokyo’s tower. With a smile on her lips, she rejected the call and said, “Sorry, it’s another customer.”

“… I’ll pay you ten times the price. Switch off your phone.”

By the time Ji Xinxin finally returned back to the country, Ji Fanyin successfully retired from the scenes with the massive fortune she had amassed.

Heh, bad women will never get hurt!

This was really good. I liked the MC. I questioned her morals a few times but she did not cross the line. The ML was rly cute. I thought this wouldnt have a romantic pairing but alas, the ML came through in the end. A nice read.

What I find lacking though was MC's motivation to go back. She mentioned that her friends, family, career etc was in the other world so she had to go back but when she did go back, we didnt hear about these things and ppl.... more>> It seemed like her status (the only aspect showb) in both worlds was equally good and she couldve stayed in either place.

Spoiler

though you would feel that the transmigrated MC was a bit favored by the world so she easily finished the task.

I may be too early in the story to give a proper judgment, but I do know this; I love how the FL is just shamelessly thinking about money the entire time she's around her sisters' harem. It may be just a personal preference for being abused and then face slapping, but I really enjoyed seeing her get over her shameless sister.

If someone thinks that professional stand-in is not a legit job, please refer to Japan. They have lots of weird jobs like this, ranging from "family", "lovers", or even more silly title of "strangers". I have to say that MC is very professional in her service, from creating a program for booking, to questionnaires, and strictly adhere to her working hours. Also no "falling in love with client" policy was followed to a tee. Even if she wasn't her own boss, she would definitely clap and cheer for her own... more>> ingenuity and ability as a pro stand-in. Very awesome.

What is rare in this novel is the fact that MC doesn't shy away from admitting that she wasn't the original body she possessed, even anticipating the reaction of other people of her situation. It was a refreshing take on a transmigration story that the MC completely separated herself from the original and whole-heartedly accomplished her mission to return home without regret.

It's an enjoyable story, a bit skewered in the moral values department imo but not so bad. At least honesty and sincerity is a big part of the novel, so I would still recommend this novel to people. On a side note, don't look for romance here, the dog food is very little that you'll be starved by the end of the novel with only a half-bowl of romance that can barely make you full. ML is a cutie-pie though.

TLDR; recommended. <<less

Spoiler

This novel tells the story of MC that transmigrated into the body of the same name, but different situations. This og Ji Fanyin was hella smart academically with some kind of social disorder. But, she has been living with pressure of being in her sister's shadow, so she tried to commit suicide in the river, but then changed her mind last minute. Unfortunately she accidentally drowned anyway..

then came MC who was a famous actress in her og world along with a system who told her that she can go back to her world if she can collect /cmiiw/ 100 billion, whether it's literal money or any fluctuating emotions from anybody, that can be converted into money too. So MC took advantage of the situations in which her twin's suitors were missing the twin, to offer the service of acting like the said twin to relieve their loneliness whatever, in exchange of money. Kinda f*cked up on the men's part if u ask me

well in the end they fell in love with MC, and this one guy that og Ji Fanyin liked couldn't believe that she stopped loving him, and asked to give him a chance. MC was like 'nope the girl u like is dead' he didn't understand that she meant it literally lmao

[collapse]

MC is so goal-oriented throughout the story and I love it! She's not so emotionally invested in the people she interacted in this world especially with her 'clients', but she does feel sorry to the og Ji Fanyin who was treated badly by her family and crush.

Spoiler

but she did catch feelings with the ML!! I actually doubt if this novel can be tagged as romance because the story is about MC's journey to reach the ultimate goal which is to get back to her world, and it can be only tagged with romantic-subplot at least, but her interaction with ML is so pure.. Well he IS pure🥺🥺

Anyway, it's happy ending for both of them

[collapse]

The novel's ending is pretty much satisfactory, where there are actually some closure to the characters in the story.

It's worth the read! Thank you translator for picking it up!! <<less

I finished the story reading the Chinese raws

Things I liked:

  1. MC has a really strong character and moral compass she adheres to. She's a high EQ person who can be passed off as manipulative, but at the same time, she delivers things straightforward right to your face that which makes her candid too. If I have to put it in words, it's like she's 'openly scheming' against others rather than being a rat about it. On top of that, she has clear boundaries on what is acceptable to her and makes sure not to go beyond that, and I think that makes her quite likable.
  2. There are no misunderstandings and angst that's the norm in such novels which leaves a horrible feeling
  3. Technically speaking, this isn't a romance novel (it's more like a novel on a transmigrated woman getting vengeance in another woman's place so that she can get back home), though there's a bit of it in the side stories that wraps things up fairly well
  4. The love interest of the MC is a really likable person too, and it does bring out the feelings of a youthful crush.
  5. The author did think the story out properly by addressing some of the plausible plot holes throughout the novels such that things do tie up together, though some elements might be subjective to the individual
Things... more>> that I'm on the fence about:

  1. The author did give warnings beforehand that this is not the kind of story you want to bring your morals into since many things are subjective here. Honestly, I'm a bit conflicted on how some of the 'antagonists' end up, especially one that ended up crippled at the end due to his psychological state. On one hand, it felt like he did have it coming, but on the other, it felt disproportionate too, especially with the MC constantly driving in the wedge afterward.
  2. Tempo at the start was decent, but it slows down a bit in the later parts. Overall, it's still quite a short story so I don't really have many gripes with it.
Note: The spoiler on the endings on some of the reviews are actually wildly inaccurate, possibly due to mtl interpretation inaccuracies. The conclusion is far sweeter and still acceptably logical given the world's setting, but I won't spoil it here. However, there definitely won't be the lurching feeling from a horribly put-together ending for this novel, and it'll tie things up fairly well. <<less

Everything is fine (mostly except random dark endings) up to this point which is a major spoiler and writing by the author that messes up everything.

Spoiler here to warn people before going into the novel because this makes the entire thing tr*sh =_=.

... more>>
Spoiler

chapter 102 reveals that The scumbag Shen Qi (Engineer 996) is behind Mc’s suffering and the system transfer. He’s just a scumbag who fell in love with the MC, so he felt fine about ruining the entire novel world MC arrived into, creating everyone’s bad end, and forcing the MC to get the 10 billion. Basically this novel isn’t a sweet cool event of MC being awesome but just MC being toyed with like a little puppet. This absolutely ruins the feelings of the entire novel. Garbage.

[collapse]

Besides it, the early part is decent as the MC has agency for herself as she enjoys making the money and hanging out but that one point above is really irritating.

It’s a proper explanation of vague sorts but really ruins the whole novel.

sigh 1/10 on that alone. Ending is super rushed and bad too. <<less

Novel was interesting in that MC was quite heartless and never really grew any soft and tender feelings towards the guys who liked her. I liked how she was quite cunning and basically played with all those guys in the palm of her hand. They treated the original body like tr*sh, and in the end they were made to realise how wrong they were and they have to live with that for the rest of their lives.

The ending was the biggest disappointment.

... more>>
Spoiler

MC makes $10 billion and returns to her original world, while the original body returns to her original world. She was been watching MC use her body this whole time, so she is aware of everything. That being said, she does not have a sudden personality change and becomes arrogant and brave. She is still quite shy and stutters and is anxious, but at least she is trying to not be like how she was before.

The reveal that her assistant (Shen Qi) was some sort of god like character who transfered her soul into this body to save her was just a giant WTF. Where did this even come from? And the reason he did it was because he loves her in the og world and wants to wait for her forever, even if she does not return his feelings.

She ends up with the puppy love boy, who was in love with her from the beginning. He actually somehow follows MC to her world, and meets her there. Their romance was... it just didn't really make sense to me. And it was not really that romantic?? I think it would have been better to remain in a brother-sister type relationship. They just did not have any chemistry.

[collapse]

I MTL-ed the rest of the novel, so just be aware that my spoilers may not be correct. I skimmed the ending of the novel because it was getting tr*shy. <<less

It's such a rarity to see a transmigrated character who is given a task to comply with to return to their original life, sticking through to the end and succeeding!!!!

[collapse]

There! With the major spoiler done!

I enjoyed reading this. All the characters are flawed and opportunists who regard themselves the most important. This includes the MC. She is fierce! Goal oriented and will not let anything, even potential romance and emotion to stand in her way. Her goal is clear - to earn the amount money required by the system (app) to return home and rather than choose a route of using her past life career skill right away in the existing industry, she decides to charge people who uses her body as a stand in for the body's twin sister. She is manipulative and really well versed in understanding people and their emotions. She has an almost detached interest to her survival in the transmigrated world. Her relationship with the people around her are a reflection of how they view her, an exchange of profit and interest yet with such a character setting, she still is able to show the caring and sweet person she is through her consideration of the body's true owner and the new friends she makes. She accounts for all potential scenarios and makes decisions and back ups for everything. This is particularly seen towards the climax of the story. Well written characters with motivations and background explained to give stability to their choices and the events of the novel to be explained.

I couldn't give this a better rating simply because

1. I didn't enjoy the pacing. Sometime it becomes a bit too repetitive with the structuring of events and a bit slow towards the middle portion of the novel.

2. I would have a enjoyed a bit more background and life experience of the MC in her original life as it did have a very strong impact on the progression of events in the story of the transmigration to world
Spoiler

especially since the twin sister's character is a supposedly pale imitation of her.

[collapse]

3. Suspension of belief is bit too much, expectionally since there isn't a 'protagonist halo' element used in the story. Can so many people really fall for a person while still maintaining a cordial relationship with the other love rivals? Can someone with such high self esteem stand someone rejecting them publicly? Is it so normal for an emotinally stunted, abnormal, possessive, almost stalker rich person to not do a background and fact check on their love interest?...?

4.
Spoiler

the additional of the deity/god/supernatural person (?) Who facilitated the transmigration of the MC and later her love interest to her world is a bit too too convient. Also the fact he fell for her when we don't even know how when why enough to give a second chance. What makes her special??

First chapter until now, looks like a not-obscene version of Being Papa'd Every Time I Transmigrate, what's a good premise!

Having Female protagonists that can be free and careless in terms of relationships and all this stuff is soo relaxing QAQ

.

Edited: I couldn't wait and just read the raws, lol.

Besides the fact that I was wrong (that's definitely not much like Being Papa'd Every Time I Transmigrate), this novel is very well written, in several different ways:

  • The plot holes are almost nonexistent, with everything being explained at some point (even if not always so deeply)
  • There is a very subtle sense of humor that is a perfect balance with the realistic description of the plot
  • All characters are thought out carefully, when even extras often appear more than once throughout the story
  • The logical and psychological development of the plot is wonderfully detailed, with reflections on how events can and are multifactorial
  • Our MC, even if somewhat OP, does not always see absolutely everything that comes after. Despite this, it is very satisfying to see her changing the fate of the original host little by little, without forgetting who she was and why she wanted to return.
  • The plot's ending is well done and complete, one of the few novels that doesn't disappoint in that sense, it's easy to see that the author dedicated himself in advance to make a good ending
  • All vengeance falls like karma, but without things like r*pe or beatings
Super recommended!!!

Mtl till finished. It's more light compared to other josei-mature novel that I read. The MC is an interesting character. Unfortunately, there's not much about her past. Even after the ending of the main text.

The males in this novel are lacking and scums to the ori!MC. They have no progress whatsoever, it's just a matter of time before they fall for MC. But the 'god' male assistant is such a nice twist.

The ending is okay, ... more>>

Shen Qi only interfered to save MC’s life and messing up the world was just on accident. He also never really interferes with her actions, so I wouldn’t say she was being toyed like a puppet. If anything, she’s the one playing with others lmaoo. The fact that she refers to her sister as the “sea king” and her suitors as “fishes” and “leeks” ready to be caught and chopped for money cracks me up.

The MC is this novel is really my style. While she’s smart and ruthless in dealing with scumbags, she also isn’t written as a machine with no emotions like some other novels. I like how she doesn’t torture people unnecessarily, and everyone receives their appropriate karma. There are also likeable female supporting characters! A rarity in the cnovel community lol. Lastly, I’m satisfied that

I just wanna say that I didn't completely read everything I skipped some parts and also immediately went to the ending.I'm sorry this just wasn't my cup of tea... Even though I ran out of novels to read cause I already read almost all the reincarnated or transmigration female lead novels and now finding more novels that's different I just couldn't endure this one.I recommend this to the people has a a very big patience and less of a pessimistic person because this novel is really far from reality morals... more>> and if you also can endure the female lead being used by scum men then I think this is the one for you.I mean the only reason I was able to endure halfway was because I was waiting for the face slap and the male lead's regretting.

I could only endure halfway and couldn't read all of it because it feels so painful seeing the female lead being disrespected and treated as a substitute and also having them fall inlove with her even after all those abuse which I think no one in real life could endure but maybe only in novels could. Maybe it's because I have less patience and that I'm more of a realistic type of person I wasn't able to tolerate this novel. The reason I only gave this a four star was only because the FL was able to get her revenge and the sweet feeling of seeing the original's host's family get their karma. Of course there was alot of stuff I also liked for example the cute male lead who's like a puppy, the fl's humor not showing any mercy to those scummy men, and also the lessons this novel gave me.

I guess this thought me not all men who has money, looks, and reputation is good lmao guess this helped me lower my standards abit WHEEZE but there's also this teaching me about morals like for example Song uhhh I forgot his name maybe because he was part of the scum men that I didn't remember but anyways let's call him Song. So seeing him regretting his actions made me a bit more careful in the future incase I do something I regret. Now I know to use my head before doing anything and not my balls *ehem* anyways the ending was extremely satisfying for me and I recommend to anyone to skip to the end-no I'm joking I mean if you can finish this then I recommend you do it till you reach the ending and if you can then skip it and don't just drop it and not read the ending or else it'll leave a bitter taste in your mouth. Anyways the sweetest revenge for me was that
Spoiler

Since the original host returned back to Ji Fanyin's body the scum men are gonna experience another round of losing their " real loved one" just like how they lost Ji Xinxin but had FL as a substitute but this time since FL is gone and also since they can't use the original host to become a substitute again then they have to go through another round of suffering since their loved one is gone and they can't have another substitute. In short the cycle is (Ji Xinxin = FL (substitute) = original host) anyways those scum men all loses the 3 of them anyways so the revenge was very satisfying I mean they deserve it an eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth.

The extras are good and I love how well tied everything is, it simply explains everything and finishes the story with a well deserved cherry on top.

MTL completed.

Considering how 'fast' FL and ML feelings formed. I felt really conflicted for the god who always accompanied FL.

There's just too little information about him, and at the end he lost her to the ML who happened to be her type.

The god was simply the second ML syndrome that too pitiful.

Having just finished the RAWs of this series, I have to say that I was really happy with how it played with what is a bloated CN transmigration genre. Simple considerations, such as what happens to the original after she returns to the body is satisfying given the groundwork laid by the empathising MC from another world. I also like how the male fishes have to deal with the ramifications of their behaviour, especially in light of how willing they were to be duped.
Yes, each of the fishes has... more>> issues. Whilst they have their looks and money, there is always something in their life that has led to them being quite nasty to the original Ji Fanyin. Whilst some of their problems is certainly sad, their treatment of the OG Ji Fanyin is bizarre and certainly fits into the CN soap opera cliches. However, we are soon treated to a major twist of sorts. (I won't spoil it for you.)
We are shown early that Ji Fanyin's twin, Xinxin, is a manipulative piece of work that was sick as a child. Fanyin's parents are also *ssholes that treated her like crap, focusing their affections on the white lotus Xinxin instead. Given the bullsh*t that she had to contend with, she became a meek figure that ended up clinging to one of her sister's fishes. She watches as another soul that cared enough about her circumstances to demolish the people that treated her badly and sets up a life for the original in the event that the return to the other world will enable little Fanyin to get her body back as well. The actress from another world turns out to be a better sister than her own flesh and blood.
Romance? This series may include the arc about Xinxin being a manipulative skank. However, it never ignores the agency in the willing ignorance and *ssholery of her fishes. That being said, my heart feels a lot more empathy for Bai Zhou. He is flawed, but he is a lot more likeable than the other fishes. I am not alone in my sadness for him either because he deeply desires a real family, one with a loving and loyal partner that he can reciprocate with. For those that are interested in the quality of the Hosted Novel translation, I found it solid as a rock as compared to the raws that frequently included pronoun issues and periodic grammatical problems. However, the latter was still able to be read. I will, however, reread the series via the Hosted Novel work of StarveCleric and Ru. <<less

The MC actually has a concrete goal that she works towards and is always on the grind for that cash lmao.

She has her standards though, in regards to being a stand in and never stoops down below them. Her clients (who were all scums to the og body) aren’t the ML and all get their emotional comeuppance in some way. I’m very happy the author didn’t decide to have the MC get together with them.

The MC reaches her goal and returned at the end!! Which is wonderful and good for her 😌. And also the original host of the body she was in also got to return to her body! Free of scum men and family and now with a fortune lol.
