Zhang Siyi, a graduate student of architecture department went back from overseas seeking for work, he had a heated fight with his ex-girlfriend in a cafe. Angered, his ex-girlfriend was about to splash a cup of coffee in his direction but he managed to dodge it. As he stepped back, the misfortune was met by the handsome guy next table instead.

The following next day, as Zhang Siyi headed for a company interview, he discovered that the interviewer was the same man who suffered the splashing of coffee.

Hopeless, Zhang Siyi thought this work was unalterably unattainable, but that handsome man unexpectedly “disregarded past grudges” and decided to hire him. Even more, the man had become his immediate superior.

The main story is about Zhang Siyi job as an architecture. There hasn't been a BL story yet. It just tell that Zhang Siyi work overtime of his job. It doesn't talk much about his private life. The isn't like other her novel Waiting for you online.

The novel is relatable because it presents the reality of life after graduation. The time wherein reality will smack you in the face while your expectations crumble. I especially like how the story shows the struggles of different people on how to face life. For me, as a newly graduate individual, this story serves to remind me to perservere even if I don't know what to do anymore.;)

But above all, I love Gu Yu and Zhang Si Yi. The BL was so lit :D So much fluff which had... more>> me smiling throughout the end. Like! <<less

So far, its really interesting 😁

Edit: MTL-ed my way through

... more>>

well I couldn't hold it in and mtl-ed my way through half of the chapters and I must say it really focuses more on architecture related stuff than Bl but there are subtle hints throughout. Well that's all I've got after reading till around 40 or 50. I guess we'll get more on their romance in the later chapters cos they're gradually building up their relationship and MC has already fallen in love with ml. Also both ML and MC are really cute aye

I do not understand why this doesn’t have a higher rating, it is one of my all-time favourites!

Very fluffy, slow-burn romance with adorable characters and just the right amount of tension. If you like modern BL with sweet misunderstandings, more romance than smut (although there is a wee bit of smut, I promise) then you’ve hit gold with this.

I also love the insight you’re given into working in architecture, it’s fascinating.

In terms of tone, I’d place it with ‘The Daily Life of Being the Campus Idol’s Fake Boyfriend’ and ‘Rebirth... more>> of a Supermodel’. READ READ READ! <<less

It’s probably one of the best novel I read so far in the web galaxy

Fisrt it’s pretty well witten; it was good enouh for me to go through excruciating google translations, and it’s good enough for me to wait for more good translation in the hope tonsee them compiled in one good file :)

i cannot relate to the « young » graduates thing, but I would guess it’s probably very good; yet as a professional in a not to far away art job, I was captivated by the inside... more>> of the architects job, and all it’s culture;

but what made this book extremely special to me was the very deep insight of china and somewhat a political culture, and social values that are very challenged by the introduction of the big power of « money » since the 80s. It is absolutely not central, but it gives a strong flavor showing contradictions of our own system, that maybe we do not perceive anymore

contrary to many text, It gave me a feel of that country, made me want to learn more, and to see more. The relationship between the MC and the ML are ok, and cute, sometimes they can even bring a big bit of depth, specially when the story converge toward realistic subjects ; but I must say I loved the professional part more than the romance

maybe it’s me, but i’d rather it would have kept the same depth, instead of being a bit gimmicky, for example including some very typical painful butt allusions. I would guess the intimate part, makes the genre, but the heart is not there. And maybe i’m st Dreaming to read stories where if s*xuality is a subject, it does not come with abuses, even if pretendingly fun, cute and half accepted. In the same way the strict « top/bottom » script of these register seems apaling to the old me. Why should there be a « sacrifice »of pride or health, why should it « hurt ». It does not need to; but well. It’s a genre, it’s not this title in particular;.

Yet the rest of the text shows so much maturity and interest that I could not help wanting a bit more there Too. I love deepth that can be kind to my small reader heart. It’s something that actually works pretty well with the chapters about the relationship with friends and family, they bring a lot of « closet peril » questions with smart and sometimes big emotions, but without ever becoming to harsh.

Don’t misunderstand me, it’s still very sweet and cute. It’s simply seems a bit to stereotypical when it get « intimate », and I just wish it had achieved the greatness of the professional pursuits. It’s a great read and I can only recommend it and thak deeply the very good translator that shared this great piece with us :) <<less

What I like about this novel is it focuses on a young adult's life after graduating from college. Finding a job, thinking up how to save money and make rent, what to do in your new work place, etc. Those are some typical things a newly graduate struggles about. Readers are taken along the MCs journey as he makes sense of his life. And we see him in different kind of relationships and as he forms new relationships. The romance is subtle, it's like slow burn, but in a satisfying... more>> way. It's like part of his journey. He considers himself heteros*xual (even if it's a running gag in his circle of friends that he is gay dating his best friend and omg that's a can of worms I'm so curious about, like come on, best friend, are you seriously just platonically following MC around or what ugh) then ML appears in his life and then MC finds himself waxing poetic about MLs competency in architectural field as well as MLs smile and good looks. He even wants to monopolize ML's attention and wants to know more about him but doesn't really think about WHY. Oh boy, I'm so ready when he starts asking himself that question, haha. Their relationship is developing in a nice pace. Whenever they interact, I'm like "is ML inlove with him at this point or what" and it makes an exciting read, lol. ML's private life is also so... private so another mystery to look forward to.


(plus I'm really, really curious about MC's best friends intentions towards our MC, okay?! Is this even considered spoiler? Lol)


This is a fairly good and exciting read and I'm so happy it's now getting updated regularly (so thank you translator-sama)

Anyway, his deserves good rating and more reads because compared to other novels in here, this one actually makes sense. <<less

This is one of the sweetest reads I've come across in this genre! :) Also so very well translated. That is key. I've had to give up stories that looked very

interesting due to translation that'll give you a headache but this one has no such problems.

Top notch story and translation.
