Beauty and the Bodyguard


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

When an S-class elite assassin-raised captain of a special ops suicide squad comes home from a high-stakes Africa mission, he finds himself offered something that could potentially set him up for life- a curious assignment that he could use to finally exit his days of war and slaughter.

Then placed into a high-school setting, Lin Yi is tasked by the chairman of a top-tier multi-billion company with bodyguard duty for non-other than his own daughter, a certain little Miss of said high-school.

His enemies, once ranging from drug lords, mafia bosses, political figures, and national leaders, are soon replaced with spoiled kids who happen to have rich papas and mamas, and Lin Yi finds his intense expertise and high-threat skillset misused, and very underwhelmed…

But he does get a harem cast as diverse as his old enemies, so Lin Yi decides that, for the sake of messing around with girls as an invincible entity in a down-leveled environment, leaving his bloody and death-filled war days behind is something he’d definitely want to strive for.

Getting_lazy rated it

Status: c6400

First thing first this review is gonna be long, so be prepared. Now, I made an account just to give this novel a rating. So the problems with this novel are so numerous that I am amazed that the author was not able to find these out or maybe the author is just that lazy. Lets start.

I have read this novel upto 6400 chaps, so believe me when I say this that there is no end in sight for this novel. I mean even after 6500+ chaps we have not yet reached the main plot of the novel. Amazing right??? I don't have a problem with lengthy novels, actually I quite like them but they should be done skillfully. Reading this novel you can be sure that author is simply writing for the heck of it, not for story progression uh-huh. Like


The major plot of the story is that the family of Protag is actually a great family and is in fight with an organization. This organization is now also in mortal world and there is constant friction between Protag and This organization. Now after 6500 chaps we still don't know where the family of Protag or why are they even fighting. So it will be a loooooong looooong time before we can see any advance in that direction.


Then there is the whole issue with character of Protag. I mean he is introduced as killer "retired", but when someone tries to kill or rape the girls of this harem he cannot even kill them. Reason, well the Protag doesn't want to willy-nilly kill people. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? And its's not because these people have strong bodyguards or something, no, our hero is so noble that he will spare them. And here's the kicker


Protag says that if it is about the safety of someone close to him than he will easily kill the threat, but not once not twice but more or less HALF of the people he knows have been in the crossfire, but what does he do? NOTHING? Hell, even more people have tried to kill him but he let them live because they are "INSIGNIFICANT" in his own words. And the fun part is even though they are shown as trash they actually become as strong as our Hero, even with all of his cheats and then they try to kill him. All of this could have been avoided if Protag would have killed them the first chance they tried to kill him, But it is a favorite device of our author to keep them alive so that they can remain a constant threat and nuisance to our Protag and repeatedly clash with him. After all who has time to invent new characters.


Then there is the thing about girls. I mean I can understand 5 girls in harem even 10 is barely tolerable, but no, author wants that every beautiful girl must fall in love with our Hero, and frankly speaking after a while their personalities tend to overlap together. But even this is not the main issue. I mean lets be honest, no. Of girls in a harem in a Chinese novel tends to be exaggerated, the main issue lies with their personalities.


Like, In later chapters, very very later, when our hero leaves the mortal realm, he meets new girls, On of the first girl he met is, lets say princess, now she is shown as a genius but she doesn't practice so she is very weak. But the real kicker is that even when she is nearly raped, is kidnapped and nearly killed she still doesn't practice. She is just their to show how awesome Protag is. Its nor like she can't practice. She has great background and is talented but even after all this she is shown as to lazy to practice. C'mon what sort of Bulls**t is this?


There are many many many more points to add but these should suffice to prove how truly WONDERFUL this novel is. And I know many people will think that if it was so bad why did I read till this point? Well the answer is that I was truly hoping for this novel to get better. Novel is not all bad. Some points are really good but they are so overshadowed by bad points that is becomes a chore to read it. All in all, if someone really wants to read it then wait for some time and see whether this novel will be finished in coming YEARS, only then you should touch it.

I will give it ten more chapters before deciding to drop this series. As some have mentioned before, the MC has spent most of the time whining, and has not done much other than that. The story starts off a little bit like _Zhan Long_, except that the main girl in this story is a total witch! At least in ZL, the female lead had a reason to dislike the MC at the beginning. However, this one is just a horrible human being and I do not have to read... more>> further to guess that she will be the MC's main girl, hopefully I am wrong. If the MC quits whining and the main female's friend replaces the main female, this story might have potential. <<less

I tried T-T, I tried another harem novel and was once again disgusted by the content... anyway, on to an actual review, this is typical xianxia (which I would normally give a 2 or 3) but the author just had to put it in a modern setting (more disgust), make the main female MC a one dimensional slut who hates the MC without a real reason and give us a whining bitch for an MC...... please note that I normally don't swear, but this novel just brought out all the... more>> hidden hatred found in me...

To tell the truth, if I could, I would give this less than one star, because of all the cliches, two dimensional characters and the fact that even though the MC has a harem around him, he decides to keep them all as virgins (or so I read from the spoilers). What is he, a saint???

IMO, the author can put all his dreams about having a harem and being op in it and I wouldn't care, but at least give us a full chapter without the MC or main female lead whining. I swear, out of the 5000+ chapters out in the raws, whining would make up at least 2000 of them.

Also, how does he manage to get tricked so many times by sly old grandpa? Is he brain damaged? Retarded? An idiot? If you want the truth, sly old grandpa is my fav character so far.... despite barely being there

So my main issues with the novel
1: whining bitches
2: one dimensional stick figure characters
3: harem with no s*x (wtf author?! When did you become japanese?)
4: Cliches (way too many; the be bullied -> get stronger-> beat up bulloes -> get bullied again thing is way too overused to even be enjoyable anymore, no matter how crappy the bullies are.
5: retarded as f*** mc

but praise be to the translator who managed to translate this crappy piece of sh*t so well. In fact, the tranlator is the only reason this even got a rating....

Whelp, that was my opinion of this novel typed out on my phone. You don't have to agree and I do hope I didn't offend anyone.
The novel just managed to be the target of my frustration because uni is starting in a few days.

That review was long so let's end it here.

Potato out. <<less

Note: This is a bias review anything I say that might hurt any real person is just a coincidence.

As of Chapter 13

This novel is just your another harem no touch novel (It mean Girls surround MC and that's it don't expect any romantic relation ship or any future harem development). I was disappointed of how MC was introduce. What I just read was a retired MC who is easily trick and was slave driven by his adopted grandfather. (Imagine doing Assassination Mission and only get 100$, that's how weird this... more>> novel is) and most chapter (as of Chapter 13) was wasted by a certain female complaining. Seriously all those chapters just to complain about the MC.

This is one of those novel who need frequent follow up, since if I can't read this in a week I well completely forget that this novel exist.

Contrary to this Novel Description I can say its a huge lie (base on chapter 13)
An MC who is easily cheated and being fooled by his adopted grandfather
An MC who is continuously insulted by a certain female character
An MC who doesn't even have a decent dress? (Seriously he went to the city full of dirt?
How his cloths got Dirty is one of the major Mysteries of this novel)
We all know MC is OP but if it is not shown then it is useless

Well I swear that after this I already drop this novel as I just rated it 1 (-5 would be good) not that this novel is bad but it lacks the impact or it makes reader easily forget this novel existence (as of Chapter 13)

Maybe just maybe this novel has potential but so far I well read this later (maybe 1 yr from now?) reading 13 chapters of nonsense was enough to make me lose interest from it.

Reading a lot of novel makes you wanna compare but seriously the other one novel (same author) is far from this. There is potential but as u can only read it 2-3 times a week I can bet even the TL well lose interest in this novel so might as well give up on this early until some TL who can translate daily pick this up.

(I usually don't give early review but after reaching 13 chapters I don't know why but it really tick something inside me and I really want to complain!) <<less

This would be good, if it wasn't for the MC's inferiority complex that makes no sense, he could be considered the most eligible bachelor, but he thinks hes not good enough for those rich young ladies from prosperous families, even though he earns hundreds of millions from his jobs, he doesn't know that, and sells straw sandals for almost nothing to earn a living, learns various expertise like godlike medicine skills, insane combat skills, with assassination skills and academics added on to that, but he feels inferior to the rich... more>> young ladies. There's humble, and then there is self debasing which is what he is. If you got into the start of this, I would rather recommend "High Comprehension Low Strength" very similar but the MC is not as much as a retard. and his humble manner is more reasonable. (too bad it has slow update speed)

Also I don't know why but the author made all the heroines into ungrateful bitches, who always feel unsatisfied towards him for no reason, even when he helps them.

It started getting better after chapter 100-200 but it still has those occasional, f**k this complete bullsh*t moments, where the author forces logic in a very crude way.


What annoys me right now is that a girl called sun jinyi that he originally meets when she wants to use him as a shield against a guy she knows, asks to hire him in the capacity of a grand thief, because of a rival company CEO having dirt on their company, he says he wants half the compensation that the CEO wants from her if he accepts the job, so he accepts it, turns out the CEO wanted her to be his lover, so MC gets to be her half lover, basically get to be called her lover with no lover benefits, he wants to turn it down then and do the job for free, since of course having someone call him her lover would cause problems for him at this point it time, what with Tang yin finally beginning to accept him and all, however she says he can't reject the reward, and he actually reluctantly agrees since it cant be helped because he said he would accept the reward before he knew what it was...................... WHAT THE HELL KIND OF LOGIC IS THAT? he can't reject the reward and do it for free now? hes now doing a job for a reward he would rather not have? this is the biggest reason why I hate reading this novel sometimes, why is the MC a complete pushover? hes made out to be a bad ass when he's actually a complete pushover!


To be honest I rather like the style of this novel, but the bad points are really horrible points that have you tearing your hair out in frustration. <<less

This is a very rote Xianxia in modern era story. It is ridiculously long, yet the plot points still can be summarized as "asshole A beats up asshole MC, MC trains/gets powered up and returns and beats the piss out of everyone till the next expansion." Also, include every female as a potential harem member, and make sure they're as 2-dimensional as possible.

Nothing ever happens: the novel. If you're into a MC that bumbles around and walks into women time and time and time again that illogically hates his guts but will probably eventually jump on his rod by the end of a few thousand chapters, then this is for you.

One of the best action urban romance novel, read the raws up to 2000 chapters so far.
... more>>

I like how the MC is trying to be loyal to his girlfriend (though we dont know for how long lol), even though there are plenty other woman likes and tries to tempt him (albeit they are not aggressive in their approach). Also his harem members is diverse with unique and likeable personalities.

Another thing I like is that if you have read the authors other novel, they are actually quite similar in terms of how the story flows and character designs, and they have some connections with each other.

The story is not unique with twist and turns, but each chapter is entertaining because of how it’s laid out properly with a balanced formulaic design. The story is very lighthearted and relaxed, you can pick it up and down anytime.

The novel is also satisfying especially when the MC amazes everyone with his amazing skills in fighting, medicine, or wealth. Also even with his amazing sets of skills, he’s actually modest and prefers a low key life which is admirable.

Finally, unlike other novel with the same genre, the MC is not trying to build a thug life on the background which can get draggy and uninteresting, he’s dedicated in being a bodyguard and improving his cultivation to get stronger.

I have to agree with jwang. I read ahead and couldn’t help but drop it because of this. The MC is also one of those guys who can’t say ‘No’ to a woman (or anyone who is his acquaintance) and ends up doing their bidding. The more I read on, the more the MC diverged from his child soldier persona to that of a butler/yes-man.

All in all I found this novel to be increasingly making me want to bash my head into the wall, and I wasn’t even close... more>> to 1/10 through the novel. <<less

Somewhere around a 3.5.

The story's not particularly novel nor are its characters particularly original, but it's an interesting read. Up to chapter 56, it's been gangster smackdown after smackdown, but I believe with more chapters translated, the story might develop into something far more interesting. At least, that is my hope.

I don't know if our friend jwang is right but as of ch8 this novel is slow but good. The setting is original and remind me a bit of zhan long, I hope the author will keep the MC like this : calm, smart.

Though I forgot which chapter I was up to in MTL version of it, I can say that it's okay for a 'Modern Life Xuanhuan'.
... more>>

From what I can recall, I remember that the MC was a special forces guy during his childhood and is told to protect some girl as his last job from his grandfather or something. He cultivates something about Subduing Dragon Horses? I don't know, been a while. Anyway, he protects her through the rest of her HS years or whatever it was and becomes boyfriend and girlfriend with some girl besides the one he's protecting later on. Of course, the girl he's protecting also falls in love with him, as well as the protected girl's friend. He meets other girls, and all of them fall in love with his amazing qualities.

Then we find out that they're all related to some bullsh*t place connected to another world. All of the girls. All. Of. The. Girls. All of the girls seem to have this body that makes it ideal for them to open up a portal to another world and 1 male has to open the portal. An antagonist with the ideal male's physique appears but he's disabled by the MC who gets a better physique. He goes to the other world and the girls get transported to the other world as well, but they're separated.

Anyway, our MC goes onto an amazing journey in this new arc of the story to find the girls and eventually finds some of them and I'm not sure what happens to the others because I haven't read that far ahead. At this point, he's making good cash selling Pills if I recall correctly and helps a Bodyguard place. And that's all I read up to.

Yes, I skipped over a lot of details. Like the details or the antagonist male. Or even the girl that helps him get that special physique. :^)


Hope the Gravitytales translator of the novel sees this:

Please, try to keep the title translation as close as possible to the Chinese. Once you use something like 'Beauty and the Bodyguard', it changes from a translation to an "original story with the same contents of another novel". By omitting the true translation of '校花 (School Beauty, Campus Belle, etc) ', the title of the series gives off a different vibe.

If you've seen this, thank you in advance and wish you the best in translating.

P.S.: If you've gotten permission from Fishman the Second himself, there are no problems and you can ignore this review. <<less

First and foremost, I would like to say that, till this point (chapter 190), it's been an enjoyable read.

The novel has this MC that, not only is skillfull with all sorts of things, but doesn't get easily flustered. He act's calm, normaly don't blow things out of proportion and understand that, when dealing with civilians and NORMAL people (thugs included), he needs to hold back.

The female characters have their own personalitys till now and his (MC's) way of interacting with each one of them is different, wich is... more>> a good thing in a harem tagged novel.

Of course not everything is great. The main problem that I find, is the lack of proper development to the plot. It's just one little thing after the other and none of those have any impact to the whole plot.

For now, I would say you should check it out if the genre interest you, but beware that I'm only around 200 chapters in, so it's a bit early to have a more firm opinion.



Most of the MC's problems are old problems that didn't get properly solved and could've been solved without much difficulty and he would be done with it, but... He's too lackadaisical and things always comes to annoy him again after a bit, mostly people that he had conflict before.

Average for what it is, a martial expert hired to be the bodyguard of a snobbish young heiress, told to stay by her side day and night, at home and at school. Usual hijinks with school bullies, misunderstandings, slowly thawing the spoilt girl's attitude etc... There is low-brow humour and the typical moments where the women get their hearts stolen by the MC's valor and skills.

There is more slant towards humour, the MC devolved from an overqualified soldier/trouble-shooter into a glorified servant who couldn't take advantage of the ladies.

There... more>> is a 2015 Taiwanese drama adaptation of this novel and and the first season (30 minutes x 24 episodes) with the same name has been subbed. There are at least two sequel seasons (2016 and 2017) but apparent there's a change in almost the entire cast (except the MC), and the story isn't over yet. <<less
