After Entering a Book, He Just Wants to be a Flower Vase


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

Jiang Dao died extremely heroically in the apocalyptic world war. He never thought that he would have a chance to open his eyes again.

He traveled through, into a danmei book he had read, and became a vicious villain in the book.

Jiang Dao thought to himself: “After more than ten years of fighting for my life in the last days, I’m tired, so what am I fighting for? It’s better to be a vase. Use my face to finish the brokerage contract, and then find a corner in the world with beautiful scenery and live a peaceful life of growing vegetables, cooking, and raising cats and dogs…”

So, he returned the role that the original owner had snatched from the protagonist shou on the spot.

Unexpectedly, in the variety show that started shooting the next day, Jiang Dao performed a shoulder toss and threw the current number one kung fu actor, Chu Yinlong, to the ground.

Chu Yinlong: Boy, you have successfully caught my attention. My new movie, the villain, can fight, you come.

Jiang Dao: …Sorry, I’m just a vase.


In a later interview.

A reporter asked Chu Yinlong: “How would you rate your perfect partner, Mr. Jiang Dao?”

Chu Yinlong replied: “A vase.”

Reporter: “How can a kung fu superstar as famous as him be a vase?”

Chu Yinlong: “Diamond vase. Precious, beautiful, hard enough.”

Giving it 3 stars for now.

The reason being that the author is making MC and ML act scenes way too sticky for people who just met. It feels like a kid playing with dolls saying "now kiss". Those interactions are too forced and feel unnatural.

Besides that, the story is entertaining, but forced by the world sticky scenes really annoy me.

Had my laugh throughout the story. This one is really good and I like the concept where the MC is from apocalyptic world transmigrated into a modern world book.

MC's characterization also is realistic enough and the ML is not annoying. There is no annoying antagonist and everything is immediately solved, so you may find the the latter story slightly monotonous due to lack of conflict, but the variety show where the MC is casted make up for that

Probably the only flaw is the last chapter, the award is not realistic... more>> enough. The first half of the novel is well thought while the latter is not much engaging.

Fortunately the extra ch's are so good! ML also fulfilled the MC's desired life at the end💕 <<less

The star of this novel is definitely the main character, Jiang Dao. He’s just so... straightforward, direct, calm, and strong! His new physical body is weak but he trains hard to regain his original strength; not to mention that his original skills are still there (though sometimes he does things and realises that this new body is too weak to follow through entirely!)

Some more things I liked:

- how this was focused on the action tv/film creation and both MC and ML star in movies/shows that are about physical action

-... more>> and how the original protagonist shou and original protagonist gong are great people! And they become friends!

When reading, I felt it was a refreshing, and yes comedic, take on the usual transmigration-into-the-entertainment-industry

  • chtr: 8/10
  • setting :7/10
  • storyline: 7/10
  • overall: 6/10 <ill explain why below>
  • comments: tbh I really enjoyed the story BUTTT like I get the MC transmigrated in but does he reallllyyy need to star in every movie the ML is in? Its very unrealistic I mean I get they be in the same studio but like its very forced the MC deserves to get developed on their own too not everything need to follow ML thats why the score which I originally planned to give which was an 8 dropped to that actually I wanted to give a 6 tbh
  • MC = transmigrated, ex-soldier frm apocalypse, very talented in martial arts extreme sports and really anything, tough, scary, sweet, cute, has a very contradicting personality cos of his old life
  • ML = some rando chtr in novel, vetern in entertainment circle, sweet, doting to MC, talented, insecure
  • MC & ML = sweet, throw dog food everywhere, cute, chaotic, funny
  • overall das all jus a bit disappointed

The story progressed very well. No problem with the orignal protagonist. There is retribution against the malicious attacks. Both MC and ML are sensible and likable. They are the level headed, common sense type of people.

There is nothing to dislike. Recommended.

I read this in one day, 4.2. Its a lovely, chill novel of a dude rediscovering life.

The most interesting part of this novel is the MC, Jiang Dao. Coming from an apocalyptic world, he has a completely different worldview and I'm glad that it stayed consistent until the end of the novel. Not sure if its an easter egg but when he was asked by this agent to "stay skinny" he got so confused because why do people in this novel world loved to look skinny? It reminded me so... more>> much of Ellie in Last of Us. They basically have the same thought process when she asked about the skinny models on the posters. Idk if its intentional or not, nevertheless I enjoyed it.

Continuing with the MC, I find that he's almost the complete opposite of every cliche in a transmigration story. He can drink a lot, there's no "This body has a low alcohol tolerance, I used to be a heavy drinker" then MC gets drunk and escorted by the ML. MC is a stronger person than the ML. Its not a ruthless person meeting another equally ruthless, if not more ML. In this way, it lets Jiang Dao's personality shine and the ML to have a different personality. Also, most of their "driving" scenes are usually initiated by the MC, which is refreshing but it does have a sad reason to it.

I could write for so long but overall, its a great novel. Its a more mature romantic relationship, since it started at s*xual attraction for the MC's part. The half to 3/4 part of the novel was fantastic, but as it gears towards the end I was kinda zoning out. The extras were nice addition. Also, this part bugged me the most. It wouldn't kill the author to have Jiang Dao and Zhou Wei to be a little bit older. Like at least 20 at the start of the novel? I've been reading danmei for so long and authors need to move on from this -teen&thirty pairing.

Other than that, not bad! I recommend this novel. The author does hint that Jiang Dao's other friends will transmigrate into different worlds. One of his friends transmigrated into an ABO world. I'll have to check it out <<less

I MTLed this novel and I rate it 3.5 stars.

About the story

MC comes from an apocalyptic world where he has experienced lost of friends and struggles with his own humanity. Upon his cruel death, he transmigrates to a new peaceful world in which he becomes a young actor in a novel he read. The story follows his personal growth and also his romance with the ML.

... more>> About the MC

He's a very strong character who has weathered horrific experiences with only some of his humanity left intact. He initially is wary and acts a certain way while distancing himself from everyone. However eventually he slowly comes to realize what it means to live in a world at peace, and slowly connects with the people around him. His romance with the ML is a bit chaotic since his view about a relationship is grounded by his past. He's impulsive and in the moment. Through getting to know ML, ML truly helps to guide his growth, to show him how much there is to love in the world and that he doesn't need to hide away in some corner to find peace in his life.

About the ML

ML is incredibly caring and thoughtful, willing to show his vulnerability to MC to get him to understand how much he cares for MC. ML is jokingly called dad quite often but it's really true. In a way he is both MC's life teacher and his lover. Yet because MC hides parts of himself, ML will feel jealousy out of insecurity at times and that's very understandable.

Why I didn't rate the story higher

The author explores emotions well at certain parts and that's where this novel shines. However it is still short in exploring too much in-depth emotionally. The world building is sparse and side characters barely get much space to develop. This novel is almost all mainly focused on MC and ML. That in itself isn't bad, but sometimes it makes the side characters they encounter a little meaningless as not all the encounters help to serve a point of personal growth or show connection with MC. Most of the side characters have no impact or purpose to the novel. The novel lightly touches emotions but jumps between filming, entertainment gossip, pr strategies, flirty romance, action sequences that it leaves few moments for emotion. My personal preference is for more emotional connection but this novel didn't go as far as I'd like to see. Also the progression of character growth jumps from event to action with very little space for emotional development. The author clearly can write strong emotional scenes and dialogue but It's a little sparse compared to the rest of the topics. Most other readers probably won't find this a problem. However the emotional parts that are there are strongly written and done well. TL:DR

Read this novel if you like action sequences, variety shows, entertainment industry, social media cp posts, flirty romance, and moments of psychological angst and levity. MC is not your typical OP protagonist as he carries within him past trauma and PTSD which show up here and there in the novel. ML is truly a loving and wonderful life teacher to MC. <<less

This was so so lovely. I had such a soft spot for Jiang Dao, his trauma/background and his character was so interesting to follow..I just wanted to see him achieve happiness. I also thought the apocolyptic background was unique, I'm pretty sure it wasn't a recently apocolyptic setting but a wasteland that he was born into and we're able to see the consequences of that even when he transmigrates into a "safe" world. His dynamic with the ML Chu Yinlong was so fun also, they suit each other very much... more>> and I loved their interactions. I loved the entertainment setting too- my only qualm is that I wish we saw more of the audience reaction but that's just a personal thing.

Overall 5/5 stars! I really recommend checking this one out. <<less

It's wholesome. I liked it that the MC and ML wasn't hostile towards the book's protagonists. They were actually bffs together🥺❤️ It's refreshing! I was also intrigued about MC's background although it was not explained very detailed. ML however got the gist of MC's background by the end. I was anxious coz I thought it won't be explained in the end but thankfully author did! Anyway, Good read! Recommended!

Maybe more of a 3.5, the first half was hard for me to get through. The 2nd half, was a bit better.

At first I didn't understand hybridiris' review about the authors inconsistent emotions and then around chapter 50 or so I understood. The story is first set up light hearted, but will have random bouts of deep emotions and delves into PTSD. I think if the author either explored the MC's emotional transitions better, or kept it light hearted throughout, it would have been a more cohesive story. If the... more>> author wrote this in a more serious drama like tone, it could have been so much more and I usually do not like serious drama stories.

The MC is only average to me. I do understand how others love this MC as he is different than most, but I felt his character was too selfish at the beginning, which could have been better explained if this novel had taken a more serious tone. I did like him more towards the end and I do love how *cough* proactive he is. I wish we got more backstory of his life before such as age. ML is good. He is still the typical, jealous of everything, never had a relationship, kind of lofty type of ML, but he had a bit more personality than most. He does recognize his jealously and doesn't hold back the MC from acting jobs that have romance with woman in it.

I liked how the movies MC stars in aren't all literary films with no romance. I also really liked that the original MC/ML weren't bad guys, they don't have much presence, but it was refreshing that they weren't turned into villians. The parts with MC's original family were meh, not really sure how it fit in the story, goes back to the author's weird pacing I guess.

Also was not a fan of the multiple chapters dedicated to the grey wolf movie script, felt like it was more the focus for 20 chapters, than the actual story.

The 2 extra chapters are a must. The one with the original MC and original ML was good

but I was hoping MC would have told him about his past


All in all it's not a bad read but I feel like it could have been so much more. I love light hearted comedies, but I think this could have been a great character driven, emotional drama type of novel. <<less

It was nice! Refreshing fun, light-hearted. Don't think too much about it, and the CP dynamic is likable so I have no complaints. It's not like it's doing something out of the box, but it's comfortable. And within the simple plot lines it doesn't get boring, so that's a 5 star from me!

If you're craving entertainment industry novel, definitely feel free to pick this one up! The martial arts aspect is interesting but it mostly just means they focus on military and action oriented films. Don't worry too much!

This is probably one of my favorites. The plot is clever. The MC and ML are both well portrayed. Reading this on MTL was rough at times but worth it. Also, I think it was chapter 28 that I couldn't find anywhere. There were some bits where characters would just pop out of existence, but honestly I saw it more as an allegory of soldiers trying to transition back into civilian life. Yes, the MC is more bada*s but him working in the film industry gave him an outlet for... more>> his emotions while the ML gave him a safe place in which to process those emotions. Having my life experience these struggles spoke to me. Thus... if you have hyper awareness issues, sleep disorders due to trauma, PTSD or the like this would definitely be right up your alley. <<less

I like this Apocalypse transmigration genre, I wish they just set up one where the weakest young master came into play, he isn't sick anymore and destroys everyone hehe.

I love both MC and ML, MC is really out there flirting every chance he gets, our so called ML *monk* can't hold it out at all haha. MC is so skillful with his martial arts but he can never beat ML with his body. We had the same problem with the other novel. We need to fix that so MC can... more>> showcase his full potential next time, I like it better that MC isn't restricted but I get the power balance but I want to see my MC in his full pledge form,

I do think though we spend too much time on the movies themselves. I wish we spend more time on Showcasing more plotlines than that, I do like how ML is so serious about details though.

This is really short like the gaming one, I finish both of them in 2 days. It' is a really good read, full of fluff.

I hope the next one Author can write out more detail plotlines, this theme has alot of potential. <<less
