After Marrying the Villain, I Became Popular


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

Xia Wan has transmigrated into a book, and he has somehow become a cannon fodder who was ambushed by the protagonist in the novel.

When he transmigrated, he was in Slag Gong’s engagement banquet and was humiliated.

Xia Wan casually grabbed the tallest, handsome man in the audience and quietly asked for help.

In the silence, it was easy to see the almost top-quality man’s star-shaped eyes and a smile on his lips. He quietly hooked his arms around Xia Wan.

Later, Xia Wan discovered that the handsome man whom he held tightly was protagonist Gong’s brother, Huo Yu, the biggest villain in the book.

the pacing is seriously odd, especially at the beginning. MC adapted super quickly to his new life. og body was timid and a bit gloomy but no one found it weird that he suddenly became cheerful and playful. I also have problems with mc's grandpa and aunt. I really wanna smack them. ... more>>

grandpa didn't accept mc's mom because she was poor and crawled her way up. she was really good at her job and married mc's father. she worked even harder even after she had 2 children bc everyone looked down on her thanks to grandpa. when they lost MC, grandpa was furious and blamed her, because she worked so hard she abandoned the children. oh this old slimy bastard. you f*cking think with your wrinkly toes why she had to work so hard. I also found it funny that he hated her but had no problems loving his grandsons. what's funnier? he was a poor villager who crawled his way up too and married a rich family's daughter. oh you hypocritical bastard. it's really not a loss if he died.

mc's aunt is... pragmatic in the most annoying way. she is a celebrity's manager, one of her stars was ml's ex-friend. ex-friend was in love with ML and had been persuaded by his father to expose ml's whereabouts that had almost lead to ml's death. ex-friend had been horrified and told ML the truth right away hence becoming ex-friend. when ml's family slandered him saying he was a white-eyed wolf for not appreciating his family's "grace and parenting", ex-friend stood up for him, revealing his role in the process. mc's aunt nagged him to death. saying he looked down on everything his staff had worked hard for. when ex-friend said he just couldn't let the victim be smeared like this, mc's aunt reminded him that this was pointless, ML had already married someone else. b*tch, maybe he just wanted to do the right thing?? have you ever thought of that? huh?? she only stopped nagging once there were people supporting ex-friend. sun baijiang my baby, I hope you can move on and find happiness.


it's really... this is a rather simple story with typical main characters but the side characters annoyed me to death. <<less

I think it's between 3.5-4 stars for me.

It's a good mix of family business, entertainment/showbiz, marriage contract, and transmigration into cannon fodder tropes. Many cliche moments and the story is not so different from any other novels. I still enjoyed it tho. Mostly talk about family problems, either from MC's side or ML's. MC was from a good rich family in his previous life, he's talented in painting and jewelry design. But he's also doing a mukbang live streaming lmao I find it really funny. Still, he's the OP MC... more>> like any transmigration MC ever. He does face hardships but it doesn't have that much dog blood going on compared to other novels. What can I expect it's just a regular modern day transmigration story after all.. ML on the other hand, doesn't have that much of a high standing yet at the beginning. So it's kinda refreshing, I guess?

It's lighthearted and fun, but it also has many touching moments especially with MC's father. I teared up a little bit in some parts. The relationship between characters stands out the most in the story rather than the faceslapping and career growth plot. The marriage thing is not so important, only to promote feelings between MC and ML <<less

The story is good especially the first few chapters. Also, here is no psychological shadow that the story will leave to readers (no r*pe etc). But the story is common and predictable that some of the chapters make me bored.

Typical story where the MC's origin is not what it seems, and there is even a foreshadowing in ch1. The ML is the usual cold on the outside but doting to MC. I still enjoy the story since some chapters make me smiles, but I find the story slow and boring... more>> in the middle up to the latter chapters. Fortunately, the chapters near the end are good <<less

its a good light-hearted read, a little bit of drama, some romance and some face-slap/show-off n that's it.

if youre bored and cant find anything better to read, this is a good choice,

its enjoyable but not memorable.

It has a healthy dynamic between the couple and no misunderstandings at all. The MC also communicates well. There are some questionable moments but otherwise its all good.

3-3.5 stars max.

The story actually is a more of a 4* than a 5.

It wasn't until I reached chapter 72 that I realized the story would not be a 5 star for me. I have no interest in the side characters. I didn't keep their names in my heart. Every time I saw a side characters name I thought, "oh this is someone from MC's side" or "ah this is someone from ML's side". Literally could careless about these people, even if they're interacting with the main characters. I pretty must skimmed... more>> until I say the name of the MC, ML, or dad (of MC). While certain parts regarding MC's family storyline made me actually cry (which brielfly made the story a 5 in my heart), I honestly felt that those storyline was unnecessary:

It's a "MC was taken/lost as a child and his biological parents are actually rich and want to recognize him" storyline. Maybe I missed some foreshadowing in the beginning of the story, but it threw me off because it seemed to come out of nowhere during the half way point of the story. I kind of wish that the MC did not recognize his biological family. They're nice and all but I just couldn't help but think: who cares? His adoptive dad raised him well he doesn't need two dads lol I cried because the MC and his adoptive dads relationships and the dad's health. Very bittersweet and very heartwarming.


I enjoyed the relationship between the MC and ML as well as the relationship between the MC and his dad. Also it was nice to see how well the ML treated the MC's father! All of their interactions were nice to read and got a few laughs out of me.

It does feel a bit slow in the middle, which is where the MC's family storyline starts, but it gets a little better, thought I don't the pace is as good as it was in the beginning. If you want to read something simple and focus on the relationship of the main couple, this is good to pass the time. <<less

If you are looking for a heavy story, you should avoid this story.


Maybe many things and points are lacking, but Xia Wan, our MC is really bright and shining. He was really making the most of his transmigrating life. He doesn't dramatize, and he makes good use of everything. Look for the sweetness to protect ML really smart and shining.

Our ML Huo Yu is even crazier. The character doesn't even resist from the start, but that doesn't mean he looks cheap.... more>> The way he likes and develops his feelings is really cute. He proved that the process of loving doesn't need to be complicated. No need for drama, and it's really cute 😭😭

when they become a couple, the PDA that spreads is even sweeter than sugar. They really are a sweet smart couple.

I really enjoyed reading this story.

If you are like me, who hates stressful and frustrating stories, then this story will really entertain you. <<less

Its kinda hard to get into it at the beginning and MTL is a pain in the bu*t but I still enjoy it.

Its yours typical marriage agreement turn to real couple but has its own quirk. MC is a baby that deserves everything! I'm kinda sad that he has to be separated from his real family but at least he gained a very healthy body and gain a new family that really loves him.

I kinda agree with junieb with MC being fine with just his father. Cuz for me its... more>> already good, he doesn't need to be super rich again. I also find him being a lost child unnecessary drama because he's really doing well with his father and he's well love even tho his father can't function much because of his disability. It would be ok if it is a rebirth one but nope, it is a transmigration one so I don't have much feeling for the biological family even tho they're really good. I've read plenty of baby switching and lost child danmei but mostly are rebirth so this story appear strange for me lol.

Anyway its not the greatest but a good read if you're bored since its not really long. <<less

Good novel 🥰. Sweet romance with the usual setting as any other novel. Both MC and ML character are good with proper feeling development between them it goes with a flow. Just in between I was pissed as to when both of them will confess their feeling. Sweetest movement when they came to know that the other person also loves them.

Highly recommend. Lots Of Love ❤.
