The person with the best martial art skill in the world, whose prestige is unparalleled. The head disciple of Tianqing Sect, the leading sect of all Six Great Sects, and JiangHu’s number one, Ming ChangYan shaoxia.

During a decisive battle, he slipped and fell.

His ten years of cultivation was completely annihilated and reduced to a normal human.

Fortunately, he was lucky enough to have fate decide that his life shouldn’t end there, and he survived.

The doctor told him, “To gain back your cultivation, enter the palace as a concubine!”

In order to get the medical herb that was given to the emperor by the XiYu Region, the immortal’s grass, Ming shaoxia could only wear a skirt, apply makeup, endure the humiliation, suffer patiently, and join the palace drama.

Ming ChangYan: This shaoxia is shameless.

Unfortunately, just as he dressed up in drag and entered the palace, he meets the man he once picked up from under a mountain.


Ming ChangYan: I was joking just now…..this is too shameless!

If I were to be found out by him, my (old) number one reputation would go down the drain!

Alright, I'm writing this so that people wanting to read this gets a better insight on what this novel is really about.

Overall Summary: A Seductive Gentleman is a story about our main character Ming ChangYan whom, you guessed it, lost all of his cultivation due to a fight with the six major sects of Jianghu. He was deemed evil due to the fact that he had killed an important figure (and also because people were extremely jealous of his skill and cultivation level). So in order to regain is cultivation... more>> and return to his sect, he has to go find the immortal grass that is said to be located in the Imperial Palace. So, he dresses up a concubine and sneaks into the palace to try to steal the immortal grass.

Characters: Ming ChangYan is a shameless protagonist who's intelligent while hilarious at the same time. He barely gets embarrassed (unless it's in front of ML) and is headstrong at times. He's easy-going and overall a very kind guy that's been mistreated by greedy bastards. I honestly loved his character, he's so relatable to readers, which makes him very lovable.

Our precious male lead... Oh my goodness is he adorable. Yun Qing, birth name Huai Yu, is such a freaking cute kid. Heavy spoilers over their relationship:

He's such a tsundere at times. But he's not the type to reject his love and deny it, it's more like he's just really awkward and has a bit of a hard time reading people. He pampers MC so much after they get together. His small gestures towards MC that make readers know that he really likes him it's so cute. Huai Yu is a bit cold sometimes, but he's only like that when MC calls him a kid. This guy is eating so much vinegar that I'm surprised that he doesn't have high blood pressure by now.


The story overall isn't some cliche BL romance about forbidden love in the palace (yuck) it's a mystery/action and adventure over the two figuring out who's been mass murdering and annihilating different sects under Ming ChangYan's name. Be warned though, the story gets extremely dark at times and there are angsty parts that really just punch you in the gut. The plot line is wonderful, you think one thing is going to happen, but then is flips around and tricks you by making another occur.

I'm extremely sorry if my translation is poor in the beginning few chapters. This is my first project and I didn't really know much about translating! I'm improving and if anyone would like to point out any translation error of mine, please do tell me. <<less
