The idea is interesting, but there's no development. I mean, their characters have stayed the same since the beginning of the story.

There's not enough fluff to sustain interest either...

It's just two guys being jealous of people getting close to MC. It gets boring really quick.

There is no growth, no romance, nothing else beside the overflowing "greatness" of the MC.

She's rich, pretty and smart so everyone loves her, everyone wants to be with her etc... But who exactly is "everyone''? What do other characters feel and think? We'll never know probably.

The villain and the male lead mentioned in the title basically never speak, they live together and they never talk to each other. They just stand there near the MC like protective guards.

So boring.

Lord, I pray that the author will write a season two for this novel for a more satisfying ending and more diabetes. Both the Male lead and Villain are so heart-throbbing. They will give you so much sweet tooth, consider how caring and loyal they are. When you thought for sure that Zhong Yuhuan will choose this person, the other will person comes out and snatch you back! No matter what, you can't choose.

Major Spoiler for Male Lead: ... more>>

He become an idol, in order to protect Zhong Yuhuan, learning everything that she like. But as a person of the public, he cannot have a relationship of his own. Still this his reason to be famous in the first place is because of Yuhuan. So he was willing to give it all up to be with her. Announcing his retirement with a love song (that he wrote and compose himself) he confessed to her.


Major Spoiler for Villian ML:

When ML found his biological family. Villian ML told Yuhuan that at least ML have a family if anything happens and that people always love ML but the Villian ML only has her from the beginning to the end. Between the two lead, the villain has more chemistry so I won't go on about it, (yes lowkey I was rooting for him).


Spoiler for actual Antagonist drama:

The villains are kind of flat, and is solved pretty quickly. Sometimes you even forgot the existed. The villains are a divide into two arcs, family and original FML.


The thing I didn't like

MC is too perfect. Like everyone loves her not just the two ML even commoner. She has everything especially in the look at the department. The author really goes on and on about her beauty. But I can kind of understand why it is written like that---it just I like my character not too OP


In conclusion, if you wanted a love triangle and super doting/ lowkey yandere MLs this the story for you. <<less

There is no resolution to this novel and for the first time in awhile I feel like I've wasted my time. It's like the author had their novel terminated. There was all this build up after the MC reveals her past and the confessions from the two ML and then it just falls flat and nothing comes out of it. The relationship between the three still hasn't changed and she never picked anyone. The story remains rooted in the concept of "family of three". Disappointing.

This is good sweet novel. I enjoying reading it. No drama, much sweet and heartwarming between MC and her two knight MLs. I really love Villain and Male Lead. They are so dreamy, caring, patient, loyal and doting on MC. I love the way two MLs love MC much, even eat vinegar. I love how much MC and both MLs trust each other. Like the way MC confessed to them that she's not the original body, but she transmigrated into her. Like the way both MLs worried that she will... more>> left them and they research soul transmigrate. That's part where MC was moved.

As for ending, MC does end up with them and She accept them and slowly love them. They live together.


recommend this good novel. <<less

I can't do this anymore. I feel like I'm reading a fairytale, and a cliche one at that. Or like I'm inside a pre-teen girl's fantasizing brain.

Just give the MC a challenge, okay?
... more>>

There's no way a bunch of spoiled brats who came to make fun of her, then decided she's pretty and mature and so they like her and crowned her their leader. I mean. COME ON! Give the poor kids a brain author!
Or that a 20yo guy fell in love at first (first for our MC) glance with an 11yo. Wtf?


Dropped. <<less

If you are looking for a story where the MC raises two cute children, this is not it. The title is very misleading.

Rather than raising brothers, it feels like the MC is raising two lovers she shows off to the world. The two adopted brothers are attracted to the MC from the start. After 39 chapters with very little if any cute child moments, the boys have time skipped into teenagers subtly compete for her love. In most chapters before the timeskip the brothers are addressed collectively and speak little.... more>> After 45 chapters, I barely know anything about the two brother's personalities besides one being refined and gentle and the other being fierce and tough, things we learn from the very first description of the brothers. I can feel little difference besides this.

If you are reading this for the MC's counterattack against the family or protective MLs it's not bad but if you wanted a sibling dynamic I would not suggest this at all. <<less

Why so many poor reviews? Although the translated chapter is divided in half, I think the pace is quite good and the translation quality is superb! Sasuga Fuyu Neko san!! ^^ Male yandere story is my weakness so I have nothing to say about the story.

Read upto Ch. 66. Are the chaps cut during rranslations - theyre just too small!

Ok, slice-of-life story from MC's pov. The 'male lead' and the 'villian' have pretty much no dialogue and readers are expected to imagine what they feel/think... The bad guys are stupid, and are always made to eat dirt by the MC - there's no tension in the story so far, and is written very childishly...

From the title/synopsis, expected a mature MC adopting two tykes with ML looming somewhere in the background. But that's not it. Instead... more>> a dense/airhead MC has 'adopted' two lovers with a cousin/lover kept as spare... how the two kids changed their behavior overnight is not discussed at all - everything is left to the reader's imagination! <<less

Sweet story.

The romance is not overwhelming, but the interactions between the FL and MLs is so cute I can't stand it anymore 😂😂

Recommended reading for those who likes fluffy slice of life kind of romance 👍🏻

The FL is not too OP tho, even if she is transmigrated into a book, she didn't do anything OP. Maybe the only OP thing she did is choosing to adopt the Male Lead and Villain 👀

Oh man I'm so conflicted. I don't know if a 3 star rating was right, but a 4 star rating just felt like it was pushing it.

Don't get me wrong here, I actually really enjoyed a good part of the story. I thought it was cute, and I liked how clever and cute the MC was. She acted her age, and was not the type to ever wrong herself. She has money, she has status, so why should she ever wrong herself? If she wants to eat cake, then by... more>> god she will eat cake.

As for the MLs, I really liked the both of them. I'll admit I liked the villain a little bit more than the male lead, but I thought they were both cute and fun. I liked how much they spoiled the MC and I was afraid this would end up where she chose one and not the other. I also loved the cousin, I felt bad for him but also liked that he was able to get a little bit of happiness in the end.

That being said... I kind of can't believe how stupid the MC is. Perhaps it's because she got so used to their behavior that she didn't notice, but honestly, how do you know notice that two grown men are thirsting after you? Like come on lmao. It's a 105 chapter story and by like the 80th or so chapter she still hadn't figured it out. I'm like wtf lol.

That was kind of the only annoying part. After a while, her denseness stopped being funny and just started being annoying. She can control the big Zhong corporation and make friends with others and understand people's moods and feelings but can't figure it out when it's so obvious from the two MLs??? I just... got pretty annoyed after a while. It felt like it was just dragging out after that and it was pretty tiring.

And finally, what the hell was up with that ending??? Lol.

Overall, I'd probably give this closer to a 3.5/5 stars? It was an enjoyable read for the most part, but I kind of wish I just stopped reading after a certain number of chapters and made up an ending in my head, because it would have been more satisfying than the ending I got... <<less

The premise is interesting, the actual story is not.

It's just not well written. I'm 50 chapters in and the two male leads still don't seem to have any personality. They barely speak or act, except to the MC, which then is mostly in short agreeable sentences.

Their relationship to each is nonexistent, which doesn't make sense considering they lived in an orphanage together as the two oldest, and then basically as brothers. They spend more time together than with the girl.

And then there's the girl whom they've seemingly pledged their lives... more>> to. Why? As far as we know their lives shouldn't have been that bad in the orphanage. It's not like she picked them up off the streets.

All in all, just not good. Even to kill time, there's much better novels that could easily be found. <<less

So, the plot is more on the light-hearted side. It doesn't have any drama on it. Choosing who's who weren't written well. It's like BOOM! This is my choice. The book isn't deep. But def I can recommend this if you want fresh air from heavy drama books. Although if you want a good plot, well-written book then this is not for you.

4 stars for the story.

  1. 3 stars for the translations. There are some lapses in using her/his and that makes me confuse on who really was talking.

Incredibly fun, light-hearted read. I really like this MC as for once she's using her brain to create plots and raise her little MLs. And the MLs are adorable, they spoil the MC so much without her even noticing. The plot is steady not too fast and not too slow. I really recommend this for any lover of the transmigiration-romance tag and wants to take a break from deciphering deep hidden plots and having to remember 10, 000 characters' names!

So niceeeee. I love how the two MLs admire her and dote upon her. MC has a good personality too-- she actually acts like her real age but there are moments where she shows her childish side, which makes her endearing to me. I do hope she doesn't provoke her stepsister too much or it'll probably come back to bite her in the future.

I love the MC and MLs' relationship. They're all so cute and I hope the author won't rush to make them grow up quickly. It's honestly fun... more>> and refreshing to see them spend their days innocently and explore their feelings for each other.

The translation is also top-notch! Thank you FuyuNeko! A good story with great translations? Take my 5 stars! <<less

Super laid back novel, nothing too dramatic going on. There's the usual family conflict and such but there isn't much weight to it. Definitely a light read.

It is basically very slice of life. A good read if you are not in a rush or seeking drama. It is sorta smooth sailing for our characters but would be kinda a dull read if you are not into this particular genre. The title can be kinda misleading as they are all about the same age when she adopts the two from the orphanage/welfare centre (12-14 y/o)
