“The information displayed inside shows that you’re still in high school, and you also don’t belong to any entertainment company, so what made you think of participating in our talent show?”

Qin Lu opened his eyes and found himself standing right under the spotlight. In front of him sat four people with strong auras and delicate makeup. The tiered pyramid-shaped seats behind them were filled with handsome young boys. Their gazes were all fixated on Qin Lu, watching his performance.

Some fragments of memories quickly flashed in Qin Lu’s mind.

The former film emperor Qin Lu, who died on set due to an accident just a moment ago, was extremely calm.

He dealt with problems accordingly and ended up unintentionally accomplishing great things along the way—

Not only did he debut, he even became one of the most sought-after A-list celebrities in the circle.

I really like this novel. It's light, fun to read, and doesn't have any excessive drama. I love the way they interact with each other (their team mates and their seniors) especially with Qin Lu's harem (LOL, kidding). I really laugh out loud whenever I read netizens comments and as well as Yihan's reactions (Qin Lu's sister) during live stages.

Overall, I recommend you to read it if you want a happy and relaxing story. 😀

I don't know how to express or describe how I felt about this book after finishing it.

It was sometimes good, sometimes happy, and sometimes sad and touching. On the other hand, I felt flat, bored, and even impatient/faded up. I didn't have any strong or any special feelings after finishing this book. It was just that I had a sudden feeling of emptiness.

The plot sometimes appears to be too slow and verbose for unnecessary parts, but there are also plots that are too rushed or have potential but are not... more>> developed by the author.

With all of this, I'm not sure if this is truly good or not, but I'd say it's not bad for passing the time, but it's also not that good either. In the end, it was only so-so.😔

When I got to the end, the excitement that I had felt at first had already faded away a long time ago. (The excitement that I felt and had at first had already gone and faded away a long time ago, when I reached the last part.)

However, as the title implies, this remains the primary focus of the story.


There's no romance here. So don't expect much more than fan service.

This novel is my top 1 now. IT'S SO CUTE. The relatioship between MC and the around people is so precious. I love how MC is kind and calm and for this, he conveys a sense of peace to his friends (teammate, rivals, fans).

there isn't drama and problems like others novels with same genre (idol, showbiz) but it don't take away the beauty of the work. On the contrary, the singularity makes it even more interesting. It's been a while since I read a novel that didn't bore me in... more>> the middle, I read it for 2 days straight and I think it wasn't enough. All characters were interesting and the friendship that the MC created with them warmed the heart.

For those who are tired of seeing cliche drama and want to see something cute and lighter, this novel is 100% suitable.

First of all, how is this not BL?

Honestly, really loved how heart-warming this is. Should warn that this is definitely not for everyone but if you do like intense friendship, showbiz and slice of life, this may be for you.

Let's start with the MC, Qin Lu. I do like him, a talented and warm actor transmigrated into a young boy who strove to become an idol and discovered lifelong friendships along the way. He changed the lives of the characters he interacts with positively and gave them warmth and support,... more>> garnering a full-fledged harem of handsome, successful men by the end of it. The best part was how he got along with the people around him and his occasional but precious gap moe when he is taken by surprise or when his cheeky side comes out.

As much as I do like him though, I would easily admit that he is an overly perfect character, too flawless for my taste. Qin Lu can do anything, can be anything and will always achieve excellent results. Of course, the novel portrayed his hard work (spoiler: his studies) which is fine but other characteristics were too exaggerated in my opinion (spoiler: martial arts skills).

The main thing is that I felt that he had SO MUCH potential for growth, more than what he got in the novel, especially emotionally. Unfortunately, it was not explored as much as I hoped it would. 251 chapters were not enough and the end of it did not feel rushed but instead... lacking? As if there should have been more but oh, huh, that's it?

And that is entirely what took out an entire star for me honestly. The author could have elaborated more on so many things but instead simply ended it just like that. Just, the missed potential? Can't say this enough. Or maybe I just want more.

Also, what had felt abrupt was his (spoilers) acting career. It was that MC shot up too fast and too easily? Despite friendship and luck being the themes of the novel, this is one of the events that felt a little bland to me, perhaps because I was expecting more challenges for the MC to watch him stumble and grow, which we got minimally. Maybe that was also what I am not too fond of; the MC being perfect and thus, everything being so smooth sailing that it felt too idealistic? Especially when it's in the entertainment industry? Yeah.

Despite all this, it was a wonderful novel that I binge MTL-ed for like 2? 3? days. MC's relationships and the side characters' relationships, particularly his idol friends with each other, are really good, especially if you do like broships. The characters are pretty memorable and the banters are fun. Competition is more healthy than hostile, with rivals ending up more as begrudging friends than anything else.


Why do they gotta be so possessive over MC though.


All in all, a relaxing and wholesome read; 4/5. <<less

I enjoyed this NO CP series more than I thought I would. It's a simple, fun story about a second chance with a focus on the entertainment circle and online fan comments (a LOT of online fan responses).

the MC is, of course, OP in most ways, but it doesn't matter. He's likable and kinda zen most of the time so the few times you see him shaken up about something, it hits different.

there's some stan-wars between fan groups at the start, but over all the story is blessedly free of... more>> melodrama and the ubiquitous, constant blacking of the MC we see in other Chinese entertainment novels.


the ending is left up to the individuals interpretation and I felt kind of bitter sweet when it was over.
I was still left with one question when I finished reading; what happened to the original owner of the body? Usually there some reason (like getting hit on the head or drowning) where the body dies and the soul leaves and the MC jumps in, but that doesn't happen here. Maybe I missed it with MTL.


I will certainly read this again once it's translated but for now its a 4.5 <<less

Basically a somewhat talented adaptable MC that learns more and more to become a top in idol industry.

The annoying things is (for me personally) is the element of "bromance" is too thick, basically if there is love mentioned even a little bit, then it will become shounen-ai and if 'adult-content' is included it will become Yaoi.

If not for that, it will be a nice inspirational step to step of an idol story novel.

I love this one! The MC is so gentle and know how to treat people around him well. It does have the BL undertone but I'm fine with it. I love the friendship between the MC and people around him. So heartwarming. I guess it's a fresh type of MC that is not cold, or to obsess with the idea of having a harem. Overall, such a heartwarming journey I must say!

This one is just wonderful. The MC is well done. Is not just a boy's journey into a top idol (that's just the superficial setting). Is about a man that got the chance to try life as a youth once more.

... more>>

Due to his past he knew to persevere, to cherish each person and value each milestone. He was not born a gentleman, he was mold through hardship resulting in what we see.

The sadness it gives at times is due to the MC reminder that mundane happiness do not last forever and is only appreciated when is gone. These moments earned the 5 stars.

Absolute favorite. I actually mistook it for danmei cause I was looking for a showbiz themed one, but can't say I mind much falling into this pit. It was a good read. MC is pretty much OP with ironically ordinary background but he's so zen about everything so I find him likeable.

The people around him are also lovely. It gives them a more grounded impression and not just 2 dimensional characters. It's not so full of face slapping like the usual with showbiz rebirth or transmigrating genre like this so... more>> I find it a refreshing read. It's truly worthy a spin, please do check it out. <<less

This is my first time writing a review it shows that I like this novel very much that I read the raw version in the MTL novel which is so frustrating that I only understand half of the story. Anyway like I said I like the story like MC is so OP that everything he do is smooth sailing (I'm not gonna say anything to spoil other readers but I'm looking forward for the translated version 😊) but I was saying is I'm a big fan of BL &... more>> SHOUNEN -AI genre (yes its capital letter 😂😂) there's so many boys related situation in the story I can't help but ask why this is not base in that genre 😅😅 but I kudos for the author for writing such story (it can be help that is not a BL genre 😅😅) but I really like the story😍😍. <<less

Very good heartwarming story

The MC progress in career goes unhindered, no drama, but it was not boring. I love the simple plot and the heartwarming relationship MC has with others

The CP couple are cute as f, I shipped them very much. There was no romance with opposite sex, there was also no opposite s*x chasing MC. There was only loving relationship MC has with his team members and also peoples who MC bond in variety show.

I can't describe how happy I am reading this novel. I just recommended it very... more>> much if you want lighthearted story. It makes you warm, fluffy, happy. MC is lovable, the side characters are likeable.

I easily MTL this novel all the way. Easy reading. This novel definitely have a special place within my heart.

P/s: although some might say, MC is too OP or MC doesn't have any troubles or problems occur throughout his career. My respond is if you read to the end, and read how MC describe his previous life... I... just want to wish his happiness. I'm happy in his 2nd life he doesn't have to suffer as much <<less
