A Silently Emanating Spring Light


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

Someone had used Gu Feining, a nobody in the entertainment circle, to increase their popularity. The other party was a popular young actor. He was good-looking, rich, and even had a mesmerizing V-line. Don’t ask her how she knows!

When the man grabbed her hand and pressed it against his well-defined abs, all she wanted to say was: It’s fine if you use me to increase your popularity, must you try to get close to me too?

Throughout the five years since he debuted, Shi Xi was a very well-known ‘straight guy’ (hopelessly dense in romantic endeavors) in the entertainment circle. His fans say he might even stay single until he was ninety with that kind of ability.

However, he tagged Gu Feining on Weibo one day, blatantly asking for her contact number. It was like he had carved the words ‘please date me’ on his face.

The fans: “Handsome, please stay still. We’ll help you chase this beautiful woman.”

Gu Feining: “Hey, can you control the comments on Weibo?”

Shi Xi: “Alright, when will you kiss me?”

Gu Feining: … The idol you guys thought would be single forever, with his courting ability, is actually someone who’s great at saying mushy romantic lines when it comes to pursuing someone he likes!

Well shoot, I kind of love it. I'm usually super critical of showbiz novels since they have one dimensional characters and relatively shallow revenge schemes for instant reader gratification.

This novel was a pleasant surprise, and I felt compelled to write a review after seeing the low rating from another reader.

The FL has a background in showbiz, and previous traumatic experiences have clearly shaped her behavior and perception of showbiz. She is characterized as righteous, preferring to rise to the top with her skills rather than her body. She isn't... more>> super perfect, though. FL is very relatably petty when confronting her tr*shy pseudo ex boyfriend, but not unreasonably so. Ditches an event to avoid a scandal, deletes one of her posts that her ex reshared, etc. She's just dignified and realistic with her place in life LOL. I knew I'd love her when she looked at the ML and wondered, realistically speaking, why the dude would bother with a B/C list actress considering all the risks of pursuing a relationship in the limelight. Not self depreciating, nor self aggrandizing.

We haven't learned enough of ML for me to form a super solid opinion of him yet, but rejoice! While popular, he isn't some big CEO with the ability to fire everyone at the drop of a hat. While he is definitely the one pursuing the FL, he isn't the "toxic" and "absolutely obsessed" showbiz ML who prevents the FL from talking to others or something LOL. He's flirtatious and cunning to the degree you'd expect a popular celebrity to be in such a setting. [Update: ML is still in the clear. Can't express how refreshing it is to have a ML whose life doesn't completely revolve around the FL -- even if he clearly likes her a lot.]

I like how the showbiz is being written here! Refreshing to see not just negative social media feedback, but also positive ones. They expand quite a bit about how shows and celebrities raise their popularity with all sorts of publicity stunts, which is fun. Having the FL act as a coach in a variety show rather than some romance drama was also a welcome change.

Overall, cheers! Looking forward to what happens next. <<less

I really like romance novels that involve the entertainment world but somehow, I just couldn't appreciate this novel. I read until chapter 14 and I couldn't help cringing all the time. And personally, I have this gut feeling that keeps telling me that Shi Xi is very shady. I don't know why. Maybe he won't be shady in the future chapters but I'm not willing to read more than 14 chapters. One more thing, I have complex feelings towards the fl. I sympathize with her because of the past incident... more>> with her ex-CP partner. I admire her idea of not relying on using anyone's popularity to create hype and make herself more popular. But I also feel that she's kind of s*upid and easily swayed by emotions and appearances. Anyways, please allow me to retire from this doomed novel. Goodbye, and I won't be coming back again. See you never! <<less
