After Getting A Job in the Nether World, I Became Famous


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

When a living person takes up a position in the nether world, they’re known as “Impermanent”.

Lan He managed to squeeze into the entertainment circle, but wavered constantly around the 38th tier because of his lack of background.

At first, knowing that he has to work part-time as an Impermanent and live off of the Nether World, he rejected it, until he realised… Why did working part time in the Nether World help him become famous in the Over World?

Lan He: “It’s me, the darkest rogue in the Nether World, the hottest star in the Over World.”

A really nice novel if you understand the basics of the Chinese culture surrounding “death”.

I love this novel. It’s mainly focused on the wuchang job, but the romance is also really cute. There are both tense moments and light moments, but it isn’t repetitive and the pacing is good (for the MC’s job). The author is known for being slow at romances (it takes off at chapter 50), so might be slow for some readers (I thought it was fine).

The writing is awesome and really submerges you into the novel... more>> itself. Definitely recommend this. Sorry for the bad English and have a nice day. <<less

What happeneddddd it was soo goood... !!!! come baaaaaacck (っ˘̩╭╮˘̩) っ (っ˘̩╭╮˘̩) っ

Sometimes I feel like the plot is a bit convenient, and the emotions and ghost encounters needed come at just the right times, but like, who cares. It's the beginning, and "suddenly" has to come from somewhere.

So the planning may not be, but the writing itself is superb and feels natural. I'm excited to delve into the character interactions and the really novel developments. There's nothing like it similar to it, although it can obviously be compared to... more>> several works, in different ways.. Ugh. I don't see anything cliché. At all...

.............................. Well, I mean..... but like, u know.... You Know.

f*ck I might just MTL it <<less

It's just like ordinary life but with a little spice added, great fun to read because it's nothing serious. Lan He's five 'kids' are so cute hahaha. One kid likes money, two kids fight, one kid is very shy, one kid really likes sweet love stories and he's also a fan of CP Lan He and Song Futan. It is very suitable to read for those of you who don't like tense and serious stories.

Hi, I came from the raws.

The author has seriously improved on writing hints into the story, as well as the general implications behind the job. Readers of Part-Time Taoist Priest (if the links ever revive) would note that there was already a side character who worked as a living psychopomp (走无常), and in Those Years I Operated a Zoo one of the famed members of Hell (Diting) was mentioned. In this story the whole background of Hell bureaucracy is outlined to make sense with established religions (the Taoist and Buddhist... more>> side) and syncretic religion (spirits, demons, foxes etc).

Death as a theme underlies the story, but most of the details is fleshed out with the Chinese metaphysical belief on afterlife bureaucracy - our MC started because Hell bureaucracy press-ganged him into the living psychopomp business, where he met ML whose soul left his body due to metaphysical reasons.


And in the end the final boss is a deity, and MC in overthrowing the boss ends up as a living City God, which is a nice twist on the Heaven/Hell dichotomy and just shows that, no matter where or when, the nature of sentient beings remains pretty constant.

I really love some of the author’s works. Most of em involving metaphysics and chinese mythology. Their works are pretty hard to translate but Im still hoping that there would be a translator out there who has time, cause it would have been a waste for this good work to not be translated.

Its pretty comedic and fun! I hope it gets translated soon enough... Im dying to read it!!

So beautiful! Unexpectedly funny! Full of pits 😆 the MC was unexpectedly witty yet funny! A foodie! And a quick thinker! It's fine if there's no ML! I can have the MC all for myself 🤣 the first translator is superb while the latest translator is wonderful too. Hope Lunar won't forget hehe.

Although I understand why the series can't find a regular translator, due to how heavily it references traditional Chinese spiritualism that can be confusing, I find it a shame because I think this novel is really good. At least the ghost parts of it are fun and exciting.

To be honest, I found the entertainment side to be really perfunctory and underbaked. By the end it felt like a weight on the story the author was reluctantly dragging along, only used for gags. There's no exploration of Lan He's acting career,... more>> why he became interested in acting, a feeling of actually balancing his part-time work with his main job, and even the gimmick of being able to feel the raw emotions of ghosts to help make his acting abilities stronger was only touched on twice and then totally abandoned. None of his movies were given any actual plots, all chapters about him on set and filming were mostly just to introduce new supernatural cases...

Although I still give this five stars, the entertainment/acting aspect of this novel was really bad. However, the mystery solving cases, the author's obvious interest in and care to properly explain taoism and Buddhism, the different ghost and spirit characters are all really fun and well written. The romance is also relaxed and low-key, which is the type I prefer anyway--no domineering, cringe-inducingly jealous ML. In the end I recommend it. <<less

I loved it, plain and simple it was enjoyable from start to finish for me.

The main characters were all loveable and the cp was sweet with enough adventure thrown in for me to really enjoy all the supernatural shenanigans.
