It's refreshing to read about two people with principle, skill, and backbone, who are capable of flourishing individually. This novel contemplates how intentions, love, and expectations may not be enough.

Eventually it is revealed that all the events, even if it may seem a little silly or unnecessary, stem from the desire to maintain and continue a pure, strong love; this is one couple's journey attempting to do so, learning how to nurture a mature love, with hiccups along the way.

Writing wise, this is a stable and well-paced novel, and I... more>> adore the steady and mature developments, with the heartache that comes from earnest intentions.

Overall a very enjoyable read, not a "wow masterpiece" but definitely great and something to reread.

note: I *really* loved yy, he's such a spirited and vibrant person!


I did wish things were easier for him: his experiences chasing fsy were far from fun, and fsy is a bit too stoic. It's clear by the end that fsy really cares for and wants to dote on yy, and I think they recognize the long-standing imbalance


While I finished by reading the raws, I want to chuck kudos at jp for their excellent translation <3 <<less

Most fluff bls have that sweet, youthful love which we crave to read. But what happens afterwards like 10, 20, 30 years. Does our couple remain the same ?. This story tells about the beginning of their love which is sweet like candy and how after 10 years of marriage they divorced. They do separated but not because they didn't love each other rather with time, gap comes as it happens in most relationships. MC asks for divorce and ML gives him. But their love is still there. Even though... more>> separated for a year, pain is still there.

This novel deals with emotions. It isn't all sunny like other showbiz ones where we get so see cliche role stealing then a ceo coming with investment rather we get to see more darker part, compromises done by crew. This novel has more realism.

I am a fluff reader but I feel things like this should be read once a while.

Most novels have cliche setting of how when they try to again mend their relationship, they do to bed but here they didn't because it wouldn't help them solve root cause of their relationship problem, which I actually like.

MC considers ML as his moon and ML considers as MC as his light/warmth.

It shows how communication in between couples with passing years affect relationship. ~ Both MC n ML learn from their past mistakes and mend their relationship.

Usually I don't read antgst (a start) but I like this one. It doesn't have those typical cliche antgst rather more realistic one. Even antgst is filled with sweetness. <<less

I don't know what's wrong with chasing someone unless they're in a relationship already. But I really like the bitter sweetness in this novel. It's realistic with that underlining humanities present. The fact we can have a second chance if we choose it.

Love the translator too. Thank you.

Ahaha, I pity the ML's manager, cleaning all the mess after the divorce. Since a yr after the divorce, MC kept in touch (most of the times) with ML's assistant, showing concern for ML whenever the assistant lure (chat) the MC 😅

This one is well written. Probably the downside for me is their divorce. They can have a cool-off instead, since both still have feelings for each other. It is well described, the changes that lead to divorce. But divorce someone only when u have no feeling for him. Well,... more>> it's in line with mc's personality anyway, being impulsive (but it also shows that he doesn't grow up mentally since he's already 33).

Another thing I dislike is the ML's phrase for MC, "His monkey had been wild for too long and didn't recognize his owner anymore. He needed to be taught a lesson". I really dislike this phrase. It seems he only sees the MC as an object. Though he loves the MC. Also the ML is kinda shameless too, waiting for the MC to pursue him.

I feel bad whenever the MC got the end of the stick everytime he pursued or got in touch with ML.

(1) Shooting the reality show with ML: the guy little director in Australia shooting and Lin wei, used MC as stepping stone to promote himself and the reality show respectively.

(2) MC applied as screenwriter for the ML: Director Jiang lowered the price of MC as screenwriter <<less

Y'all up for some drama? Cause I am.

The MC and ML just divorced, but end up shooting a couples TV-show while hiding their divorce. You'll see their current situation and their past is told through flashbacks. It has this "how did we end up like this" setting: not only their love changed with time, but also their characters. Some small things, however, are left unchanged.
Perfect development story.

The shou is also not your typical shou. No white lotus shit, but a guy who can stand up for himself (nothing wrong... more>> if you can't, but it's just finally something diffirent). He is also one hell of a gangster man lmao. Bc of stereotypes I mistook him for the gong. <<less

I finish this novel by MTL-ing the rest because this one got me hooked up and just can't wait to know what's next. In the later chapter it describes how the couple end up divorced, and it is so touching that I end up crying, so yes this one has a bit angst but it is still bearable. If you expect some smut scenes then you will not get it in this novel, but if you like novel with plot then this one is one of the best.

I came here from "Tattoo", the author's other story. Because I like Tattoo a lot, I want to try author's another story. I was a bit hesitant after reading mix reviews but I still tried.

Author is really good at story telling and I thought I really like this story while reading first half. I find a lot of excuses for ML behaviour and thought ML loves MC a lot.

... more>>

but when I reached the part where he forced MC signed divorce paper, I cannot stand anymore. May be I'm not understanding the situation clear because I read it with MTL, I cannot sympathetic him at all. He was like you hurt me and I'll hurt you more behaviour. He only care that MC once think of giving up and flet hurt but not thinking from MC side at all.


I personally think MC is too giving and ML is taking advantage of this. In real life, there are indeed couples like this but it's not satisfying to read as a romance story for me.

I give three stars for Author's beautiful writing and translator's skillful translation. <<less

This novel was very good, I loved how the author potrayed the difficulties of marriage. I loved the couple's interaction. It teaches us that love in itself is not enough to keep a relationship going. The heartbreak was real in this, the author had a unique way of describing things that it just left a pang in your heart.

Lol I can't even decribe it properly, anyway this is a fantastic read, you won't regret it.
