A President’s Out-of-Body Experience

Description

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

Our straight (?) bottom woke up ten years into the future and found himself on the bed of his childhood friend… At the start, the bottom was shocked to his very bones, but he soon quickly accepted this premise and found the whole situation to be rather amusing. Precisely then, the bottom once again went back to his timeline — back to when he and the top were just platonic childhood friends.

Landmines include but are not limited to: Sweet & naive bottom, a president story, logic is dead, slow-progressing romance, the protagonist’s name has too many character strokes, the names are hard to pronounce, too many gay characters…

Overall I liked this book:

Although the MC is quite naive and silly (actually not to my taste, as I like stronger MCs more), the story itself is just hilarious. Many puns are waiting for you! For this length of a novel, the character development and depth are so-so, but this is rather a read to be killing some time than to dive into a great plot.

Rather special is the fact that here the shou-MC is pursuing the ML clumsily and awkwardly, instead of having an aggressiv ML.

The best are the... more>> tsundere brother and grumpy-but-soft-hearted dad trying to help the MC in wooing ML! Just too CUTE <<less

I would have given this 3 stars but I realised I couldn't because that summary did not lie at all. MC is indeed naïve. To the point where I wanted to scream at him. Logic also kind of went out of the window so the summary was really spot on.

Firstly, for things I like, it would have to be MC's family: ... more>>
Spoiler

I liked that the whole liking guys big confession to the family thing happened at the beginning. It led to some pretty hilarious times with MC's father and brother, especially how MC's father actually tries to help him and brother gets roped along. Glad to see no serious drama in that department.

[collapse]

Things I don't like:
Spoiler

MC's naivety regarding people around him who has feelings for him leading to some misunderstanding that gets out of hand, span multiple chapters, make me frustrated, make ML frustrated, I wanted to shake MC to WAKE UP. Also amazes me how those guys just falls for him because of his misleading ways. Not sure to laugh or cry. 真的是哭笑不得。Also, I kind of wanted MC to be like good at something at the very least but he was like a typical rich kid that doesn't know how to work or virtually do anything despite (probably) graduating from university and given a position at his family business. At least pretend to work (but he doesn't).

[collapse]

The overall premise of the story was interesting though really can't tell MC was not bent by how easily he accepted everything. There's definitely humour. Not a lot of outrageous drama except the stuff I mentioned in the spoilers. I do think MC and ML were very cute together. So this is 4 stars because it really delivered what it promised based on that summary so kudos to that summary. <<less

I don't mind the MC being silly or cute, but this one hit my bottom line.

His type of stupid is unacceptable. It makes my teeth ache.

He is clueless, spoilt, naive, irresponsible... there's no redeeming quality. There's very little character development. He is like a child. How he ends up with the ML is a mystery to me, they don't suit at all.

I found it bland, and the sense of humor isn't my cup of tea.

An intriguing concept and I found it to be alright overall, though it lost stars because I hate naive and stupid MC and this one seems to be borderline mentally retarded (i have the same problem with female MCs with the same setting so it's not just BL). I felt really bad for the poor ML, he has a lot more patience than I ever would. There are a lot of misunderstands brought about because of the shou so if you don't like stories with that particular trope you will... more>> quickly find yourself frustrated and skipping chapters (i know I did). On the plus side, the two were sweet together (when there weren't misunderstandings) and it was a HE. I think the author meant this to be a light and fluffy novel with some good smut scenes and it mostly succeeds, as long as you don't mind the things I mentioned above. <<less

At the begining I really thought that the MC was cheap, but after reading more, discovered that he is just a little silly and lonelly boy, although his brother and father are good people, to have lived that kind of hollow life...

How came there be someone so cute and pitiable?

Good thing he has the ML!

A great, short and sweet light-hearted novel. It tells the story of these two characters and how they came to be, how they overcome their struggles and how they try to change for the better. It is a mix of fluff, contains a bit of implicit sexual scene (for like.. two short paragraphs?), comedy, some angst and drama!

I really like the MC a lot, though the stupidly-naive-and-oblivious type of characters are often disliked, Renzi grew so much later; he became more aware of his surroundings and matured a lot but... more>> he still has this child-like innocence in him. He is a precious baby and I will fight anyone who bullies him.

The characters are really.. neat. They all have their own struggles to deal with and they handle things their own way.

Spoiler

If every "antagonist characters being paid by ML's evil step mom to separate MC/ML" were more like Mu Chutong, I bet they would've avoided so much unnecessary drama. Ugh.. PH teleseryes and wattpad novels.. please...

Edit: I forgot to mention that the translators did a really great job! Huge thank you! <<less

I don't mind stories about naive and innocent MC. Reminds me of Maiding in "Will you still love me if I am a man" or SuXiaoMi in "I want to be your man". Both books by author Angelina.

I think Renzi is more child-like than stupid. Like another reader said, it seems more likely he is suffering from some mental handicap, rather than someone who is purposefully/lazily being an idiot.

Of course, just like the other 2 books I mentioned above, those naive protagonists provide much situational comedy due to their naivete.... more>> Usually, I love this kinda humour and this author is obviously very good with this type of comedy. Some dialogues and situations were hilarious. But this brings me to the only dislike I have with this story. It felt like the author prioritised comedy over romance. Almost everything was made into a joke... and that I don't like. Sometimes it felt like their love was a joke too, treated lightly, without depth. Even the confession scene by Renzi turned into a joke created by nonsense angst from a rival and homemade wine. And after that, their decision to date was also treated lightly with the "yellow-legged chicken" situation created by Renzi's father and bro. And after that, it was the ML's dad who created more useless drama by suddenly caring about who his son dated, out of the blue, not really convincing or coherent.

I liked Renzi's character more than ML who often seem to love his work more than his lover. ML gets better towards the end. But really, all my points are for adorable Renzi. <<less

This story gave me interesting vibes (a la "Flowers for Algernon") and I'll be the first to say that I typically very much dislike MCs that are portrayed as stupid/silly all the time. That kind of plot device can be humorous in the beginning but frequently gets old very quickly.

I'm not sure whether it's due to the fantastic translation or just how the story felt to me personally, but the MC did not come off as a typical frustratingly dumb MC that cluelessly does things to annoy the reader.

This reads... more>> more like a story about someone with Asperger's or someone genuinely mentally challenged, not just naive or contrived innocence.

So I actually found myself enjoying this because it's quite different from other "idiot" MC tropes. I give the author kudos for being able to portay a very funny, sweet and touching love story with a handicapped character, which is not something you'd typically see in CN. <<less

I read till chapter 9, and feel so much confused.

Silly MC I can accept, but silly plot with no logic to follow is not enough to make me stay to read eventho it's all fluffy and all.

I'm surprised no one plotted to steal all MC money eventho it screams schemy plot in all turn.

I have read up to this point. But I can't endure anymore. I also can't change my rating, ah. The MC is indeed a silly, naive, brainless, pampered idiot. And I'm also naive for thinking he would improve and there would be some character development. There is some. Slightly... but the situations he gets into hurt my head so much. His logic and understanding of the world is really..... unique, is putting it lightly. It's a wonder that the writer makes his luck so good that natural selection hasn't done... more>> him in yet.

I've written a much longer rant but I'll keep it short and simple. I'm tired. And so done. Leaving it unfinished. Sorry to the translation team, I do enjoy some of the novels they translate. I just can't bring myself to like this plot and finish it. m (_ _) m <<less

So adorable and funny! I love how the MC really embraces the naive lovable dumbass trope- usually I would be annoyed because most of the time the author would insist the MC is ‘super smart’ but oblivious or something but no, everyone acknowledges MC is dumb af and it’s hilarious. All the supporting cast is simply phenomenal as well and I love the MC’s family, especially his dad who pitifully accepts both his sons are gay now then immediately mother hens him violently. It’s just- everyone is great tbh. It’s... more>> fluffy cute funny 10/10 <<less

I like this story very much.

It's a good humor and enough fluffy moments. Very easy to read. After every chapter you want more and more.

I don't think that main character is too stupid. I think, if I were borned in the rich family, I would be the same person.))

seriously silly, which make the beginning fun. The MC is undoubtedly too stupid and vain, but it’s cute, his family is awesome, -there is no absurdly possessive relationship and somewhat it gives good standard for awesome relationships. How nice :)

there is a decent explanation for the MC stupidity, but I would have likedto see him grow

Gonna give this 4 stars, this novel was really enjoyable.

It was mostly fluffy but it had some level of depth, the characters weren't one-dimensional and I liked most of them. The MC is really naive and unguarded but it's an issue that does get addressed which is something you rarely see in these types of novels. (Plus he's a little cutie pie) Even with the naive/stupid character trope, the misunderstandings weren't drawn out and didn't make me want to pull my hair out which I'm grateful for. I'm kinda disappointed... more>> that the MC never told the ML about that dream at any point in the story, which made it somewhat insignificant and really only served as a catalyst for the MC's feelings. The author definitely could have done more with that concept but all in all the novel was a nice read. <<less

This is my first review and I have to say I read it in a day it's amazing I love the weird conclusion that are brought up by Yunren and his hubby. Can't wait for this to finish it's a must read for me.

Warning though read tag it says naive protagonist don't expect them to be smart but this MC isn't completely stupid they're just sheltered

This story was too funny.

I especially like that Oddball and funny MC.

Just read it,

... more>> it was funny,

heart warming,

and so much pluff.

MC was naive and too innocent, like a child in adult body. His mind was pure and easily got distracted. His luck was really good too, everything always works according his wishes most of the time, even though he often forgot his purpose. Lol.

ML was a workaholics before he fell in love with MC, but it slowly change for the better. His bad habit like smoking too.
ML was doting and a prankster towards MC. He likes to tease MC and showering him with presents even before he got together.

I love MC's family, they're hillarious af. Almost every one in this novel was funny. The side characters were ridiculously funny too lol.

I really enjoy reading this. I never got bored the entire time reading this novel. <<less

This was a really cute story, with a couple that makes me happy just reading about them.

There isn't a ton of plot, but the story maintains momentum with the progression of the two protagonists' relationship, minor drama with various side characters, and some character development towards the very end.

Overall, an enjoyable read.

I liked this book! A lot of the reviewers mentioned their dislike of the MC's naivety, but I have a soft spot for this sort of dopey character. This book is on the comedic side, so please keep that in mind. Some of the MC's interactions made me LOL. If you don't take this style of BL novel too seriously, I think you'll find it an easy, fun read.
