After Being Turned Into a Dog, I Conned My Way Into Freeloading at My Rival’s Place


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

When celebrity singer Ning Yan suddenly found himself turned into a white puppy, he ran into his rival Lin Rong, who just happened to pass by while Ning Yan was at a loss for what to do. Based on the idea that if he had to suffer then Lin Rong must suffer with him, Ning Yan tried all the tricks in the book until he successfully enticed Lin Rong into taking him home.

Just as he was dreaming about conning the man out of food and house, the apartment door opened…to reveal a wall filled with his posters and a body pillow in his image on the bed.

The man hugged the body pillow, smiled at the puppy and said, “My beloved Yanyan is so pretty, right?”

To which Ning Yan could only respond by calling Lin Rong a pe*vert.

The puppy Lin Rong picked up was a little dramatic. First, it bit down on his leg and refused to let go until Lin Rong took him home. That same night it pawed at the closed apartment door wanting to get out. A few good meals later, it flopped belly up in the dog bed and looked at him with thoughtful eyes.

One night several days later, Lin Rong came home drunk. He dreamt of the white puppy turning into his beloved Yanyan, lying on top of him in flustered surprise. He also dreamt of Ning Yan touching him everywhere when he realized how drunk Lin Rong was.

The next day, the white puppy was curled up peacefully in the dog bed. Lin Rong thought deeply for a second, went into his room, and found the security footage from the living room.

He squinted thoughtfully when he finished reviewing the footage…

this one was cute! A little second hand embarrassment but it a as ok.

MC went to MLs house as a dog and saw posters upon posters on the walls and an MC body pillow on the bed and tried to run away. ? A smart MC here.

MC over here eating legit dog food made it bearable for me to eat the dog food they were throwing at me; it's short and cute so give it a shot.

Oh god, the second hand embarrassment. The cringe.

I couldn't handle it. Sorry guys, maybe I'm just weak, but I couldn't last past chapter 33. Overall, it's not a bad story to pass time with - it's not particularly deep but not all novels have to be. There's a great emphasis on fluff and humor (well, the humor is subjective - if your idea of comedy is at the middle school level then maybe? You would enjoy this?) and it doesn't seem to take itself seriously. But.... the second hand embarrassment... more>> is real folks. It's so, so real.


Why did the author focus on the whole peeing and pooping aspect of the MC turning into a dog? Why is the MC getting jealous over the ML stroking a cat?? WHY DOES THE ML KEEP THREATENING THE MC WITH NEUTERING???


Yeah, overall.... don't real this novel if you're sensitive to cringe. 3.0/5.0 stars. <<less

Okay, first of all, the translation of "bro/sis" is just... an annoyance, for me at least. Bro/sis just doesn't give the same feeling as ge/gege, or jie/jiejie. Moreover, the immersion in the novel is being broken by the "bro/sis", the number of time I had to stop reading, stare at the words "bro/sis", take a deep calming breath, and try not to scream in frustration, is uncountable. like really... it was that unbearable. And I know it might just be my inner pickiness and my own preference but ahhhh it... more>> was not a nice experience... anyway, it's just a rant but you really have to prepare yourself if you are like me who prefers gege and jiejie over bro and sis *gags*. No hate to the translator, it's just my preference. Aside from my subjective gege/jiejie translation, kudos to you translator, you did a great job translating this sweet novel.

Next, unto the novel. It's super sweet and cute I couldn't get enough of the sweetness and the secondhand embarrassment is so strong it made me (a pretty-immune-to-2ndhand-embarrassment-girl) embarrassed for them. This novel is overflowing in pure fluff, comedy and sweetness, ah I love this. Highly recommended for future readers, don't hesitate, just jump into the pit *shy laughter* <<less

Pretty short and sweet. Unfortunately, there's a whole lot of nothing happening in the middle and a lot of the side characters get abandoned until the extras. Ending was okay, albeit rushed.

There's not a lot of substance, but it's a fluffy, quick read.

this is cute and all but the amount of times I've read "name Sis/Bro" argh, this depends on the translators personal preference but as a reader I prefer reading Ge, Gege, Jie and Jiejie over bro and sis.

The novel though is a good read to pass time and translation overall is good too!

This novel is just straight up fluff. There no angst and when MC saw the posters and body pillow at ML’s house his expression was priceless. No doubt a 5/5

This is one of the best fluffy novels I've read. It's satisfying to have the literal whole book centered around their relationship after reading a bunch of more serious novels.

I will admit that the shou has basic tsundere character settings, but at least he doesn't suddenly change to become proud/cute at the very end of the book (which happens a lot for some reason). I really liked the MC and ML together though.

Wish I saw more of the ML's family, but it's almost a recurring problem in BL to center... more>> around one family.

Plot: 5/5

Pacing: 3/5

Enjoyment: 6/5

Feeling after finishing: 4/5


Totally recommend it, no regrets reading it even as a pickier reader (you'll only regret binge-reading it ldsdjkilskj)

PS: great translations <<less

Quick rant on TL:

... more>>

I understand different TL groups have different rules, but it will never not be cringy as f*ck to see a TLer who's determined to completely avoid any non-English terms, especially when that leads to things like every character saying "bro". Am I reading a surfer flick script set in California or am I reading a modern day supernatural danmei? "Bro" doesn't even have the same connotations as ge/hyung/a variety of other Asian terms for an older man, so it's not even a good or reasonable translation.


That aside, this novel is a very delightful short read. All the characters are pretty likeable, and there's more of an emphasis on the comedy than the romance. The realization scene is also hilarious.


They flip places- at first it's the ML insisting on MC acting like a dog and MC trying to desperate keep his dignity, but after finding out the dog he's raising is his precious stalker crush, ML panics and gets embarassed and tries to change his ways, but MC has gotten used to acting like an actual dog and gets annoyed at ML for taking his dog food, changing his name suddenly, etc. ML even starts tearing down MC's posters out of shame! ML is such a cute stalker.


I rate 5 stars for the entertaining and well written story, but removing one star for "Lu bro". <<less

I didn't even notice the bro/sis part, probably because I'm too used to automatically edit in my brain what it finds unnatural/incorrect like grammars etc. So it won't affect my reading experience. The translator did great aside from that whole thing, I think.

Anyways the novel is a delight. The author wrote this purely for self-satisfaction and even explained that no, she is not mistreating the characters (except for that dude with the one-sided love) and no, those doggy spanking are equivalent to love taps (that do not hurt dogs) because... more>> some people just took it out of context and ran away with it (I even had no problem with it until she started explaining because I never thought those "spanking" really hurt NY. The one hurt was just his ego bc well, as a human, would you like to be lightly slapped in the butt? Lmao)

Read this all in one seating, and may have lost a bit of sleep but there are no regrets. The side CPs surprisingly had closure too (although one of them is only implied). Might reread this in my spare time.

EDIT 4/27/24: I returned to reread this and found in the NU Review section that people rated it low because of 'cringe'. Like maam/sir, that is literally the selling part of this novel aside from the fluff! It's supposed to make you recoil in second-hand embarrassment! Just because you can't take it doesn't mean you have to rate the novel low when it doesn't even have any major plot holes, or shitty writing. It's literally slice of life. "There's nothing going on in the middle". Sincerely, something is going on in the middle. It's called their "daily life", the main factor of slice of life novels. I'm face palming right now as I write this with one hand. <<less

Cute novel. Didn't feel anything after finishing but it's cute? Fluffy? Better than angst.

A little second-hand embarrassment but it's ok.

ML is one of the best ML I've seen; he's sweet and exactly one of the people you have to look deeper and befriend more to know exactly what his character is. He's been in love with MC since the day they first met, was patient in every way, and smart.

I mean. With how MC as a dog has been acting, it's no wonder ML saw that he's human and the... more>> man he loves. MC is a tsun? A bit, but not to the annoying side of tsun. He's straightforward on what he wants lmao.

It's so cute, even though there are only 53 chapters but it's satisfying! Ning Yan and Lin Rong are very sweet, reminds me that MC and ML in Ghost Know What I Experience. They are both single and when in love it is very cute and shy. Unlike ML in other stories who are very dominant even though they have never had a boyfriend. In this novel couple and Ghost Know are more natural and original than any other novel. Although the nature of ML is not frankly told, this... more>> is very annoying. The MC mother character is very cute and I finally know where most of the MC's traits come from. The side pair are also cute even if only shown a little. Ning Yue (cousin and MC agent) and Ji Zhao. Wei Zhounan (MC's good friend) and Gu Ying (? I don't know if the name is right or wrong). But I thought, has the name Gu Ying been mentioned before? Seems like never. I'm actually still curious about the two dogs that were in the contest, they seem spiritual. <<less

This was a sweet and fun light read. No angst. No heavy conflict. Just pure fluff! Can be another mindless reading imo if you just want to vibe away from angst and heavy plots.

Love the dynamics between the MC and ml. MC with that childish and proud attitude and ML with that head empty only Yanyan lmao. The romance might seem to escalate fast but considering the length of the story, I think that reasonable. Really love it when Ning Yan was still a puppy, he was so funny! I... more>> personally think that their dynamics before the reveal/transformation was funnier and better but that's just my preference as someone who gets bored when the pair comes together lmao.

If you like novels with lovey dovey and clingy pairs then this is for you! No braincells needed when reading. <<less

Coming straight from A Real Man Isn't Afraid of a Little Demon I was afraid that this would be another "scam" novel where the content is completely different from the misleading lying summary, but thank god this was not the case here! I was so glad to find the scenes mentioned in the summary portrayed in the novel, so much that I was smiling widely while reading them.

Perhaps because I've become a bit detached from the fluff genre in the course of the years, I didn't have any issues of... more>> second-hand embarassment or cringe that the other reviewers report. I do agree with other readers that the ending was wrapped up a bit hastily and more breadth for development could have been left to the cute side-couples. And I completely disagree with the readers who say that the romance is all at the end.

Looking at novels like this one, I think we all need to expand our horizons about the romance genre. This is not a typical boy meets boy novel, this is mostly an inter-species guide on how to understand each other better. The focus of the novel is not the human/human relationship towards the end, it's the dog/human (dog-human/human to be precise) connection of the first two thirds of the novel. From this perspective, I think the author nailed the romance pretty well.

The protagonists have multi-faceted personalities, a circle of friends and family members and past and aspirations that interconnect with each other. All in all the characterisation here is very solid. Nothing too grand but no glaring weak points either imo. The strongest sellings point of this couple/romance are I believe the comedy and fluff. So many hilarious and sweet moments! I recommend reading this novel if you're feeling down or coming from an angsty story.

Unfortunately imho the plot is not up to par with the level of care put into the characterisation. It's pretty cohesive in the first roughly two thirds of the novel, then falls flat on its face in the last section. But by that point you'd have already read a solid nice light-hearted story to take a break from heavier reads and you'll be good to go, whether you feel like continuing to the end or look elsewhere.

Overall good but not excellent. Totally recommended light-hearted nice reading. <<less

4.25 stars, for really delivering on the comedy tag.

Fully translated and a very lighthearted and easy read! I laughed so hard at the antics of the MC. He's a bit childish and very inexperienced, but so is the ML to a certain extent. Their personalities really match each other so well, and the way that the ML smiles at MC every time he sees him gets me feeling so single.

The MC is a dog for pretty much the whole novel so the actual romance is limited to the end ... more>>

when he can control when he's a human or dog

The explanation for the whole transforming into a dog thing was well explained too.

The way the ML literally has posters of MC everywhere is so embarrassing for him but he owns it well.

It was hilarious how the MC actually started liking the dog food that he initially was so against eating, and how the ML completely freaked out when he realized he had been feeding his crush literal dog food and had basically brought the man of his dreams into his home that was pretty much a shrine to the man. Also the way that the mom approved of ML because of how obsessed he was with decorating his home with MC's face was too funny.


The story reads a bit like a parody so don't expect anything mind blowing in terms of plot development, but I did really like how naturally the MC's feelings developed and were realized. Also the PDA in the extras was too cute. <<less

This is another silly fluffy story. I like the combination of the goofy, attention and competition obsessed shou with a shy quiet gong who crushed on him for years. I did like the part where the ML figured out that dog and man were the same person on his own and that side characters dropped hints to avoid that whole 'you lied to me' fight scene. Some of the scenes were so freaking funny and then there were good tender moments between the CP too. A nice quick read that... more>> will make you smile and laugh. <<less

This is cute. It's really similar to Reborn into a Hamster for 233 Days which I also liked. I do think it would have been funnier if the ML had struggled a bit more with the truth instead of just accepting it but he did have definite proof so I guess I can understand why. The MC is a cutie and I love him. He's so sure that he's right and that he deserves every bit of doting that you give him. It's a very fun read!

This remind me of another story of MC turning into ML's cat. I've finished reading chapter 1 and I can say that it is good and will wait for the translation to be completed.

I'll be MTLing this one before giving my final thoughts (hehe) I hope this one will be good and I guess will be a good short read. :3

EDIT: This is actually is to MTL and its actually tolerable.
