I've read several of the author's works and one of them is my all-time favorite. And based on that, I think it's safe to say that this story was just an idea half-fleshef out. Like, it wasn't meant to be a complete novel, but just a short story exploring a story idea.

Also, the translation is maybe a 6/10 so there's that.

The tags on this story made me speechless (I've fixed them. This story is NOT fantasy genre.)

First, I'm sorry to say, the translation was pretty un-readable for me. I ended up looking up the raws on jjwxc (all are free) and reading it myself in original language.

The novel description on NU is both grammatically incorrect and weirdly translated. I would update it with a re-translation it if I had any clue where the text is from. The official JJWXC text did not have this writing.

A very very sweet, fluffy, modern romance about a rich-2nd-generation-young-master who's been in love with the idol/actor of his dreams for many years, secretly chasing him all this time. MC joined showbiz as a young new actor (fresh meat), and happened to benefit from a situation where he and his idol agreed on a marriage of convenience to manage their public images.

However, the three years of their original contract marriage was about to expire. In a desperate bid for one last "close moment" with his idol, the MC asked his idol to join a reality TV show with him featuring celebrity married couples. And that's where the story begins~~

-

A sweet story featuring an unexpectedly ultimate cinnamon-roll and misunderstood MC. I would have given this story 5 stars if the ML had been anything other than completely stereotypical. But it's ok, the writing was excellent and there was just enough detail to make things engaging without dragging. Fantastic quality by the original author -- I even looked up all her other works because the writing was good!

I repeat, there are no fantasy elements, this is a straightforward, down-to-earth modern-day romcom (with a touch of angst). <<less

Han Shi made me go out of my cave and write a review. It was so short but it was truly remarkable. The love of Han Shi was so pure it was truly sweet. 💙

Spoiler

I wish the author can give more extra in telling the reader how the pursuit going because I'm sure it gonna be fluffy and romantic scene ever due to how persistent Li Feng show when he decide to keep on flirting with Han Shi in order to show his sincerity ????

3.5 stars.

It's a short, fluffy story. For me it was a welcome break from the long novel I've been reading. It has some mild angst, which the author was able to bring out. However, things get resolved quickly and smoothly, and everything's alright with the world in the end. I just wish there was an extra or two of the couple's life together.
Spoiler

Since the story was so short, I felt that it didn't adequately explain why the ML decided to get married to the MC in the first place. It could have been fleshed out more. I also felt that the ML started liking the MC a bit too abruptly. They'd already been married for 3 years, and in all that time the ML didn't bother to pay attention to the MC. Yet it just took about 1-2 days for the ML to being looking at the MC in a different light.

I wish the translation had been better. I found myself editing and paraphrasing in my head as I read the story. It somewhat affected my enjoyment of the story itself.

It's an okay story with soft fluff.. A rich family's little prince acted like a crew-boy for two whole months just to pursue his first love ~ isn't that like a fairytale ??? His way of chasing shows the naivety and purity of a teenager's first love.. He really is silly and adorable to boots !!! A sweet bun !!!

Li Feng is good natured and matured.. But he fell for Han Shi all of a sudden, which makes his love look shallow compared to Han Shi.. A little more romance... more>> would've been appreciated..

It'd have been more enjoyable if the translation was smooth.. Some of the sentences actually changed the meaning.. <<less

First I was confused. Good effort with the translation, although readers need to help themselves understand a bit.
The latter chapters made the story turn from vaguely sluggish to cute and sweet. No smut tho. Nice happy ending. ?

Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaa! So fluffy! This is a cute and short work. The story is sweet and the romance doesn't have any aggressive elements like over possessiveness or yandere behaviour. It does suffer due to it's short length - the characters aren't fully fleshed out, the ML's feelings jump from like to love too easily and the romance may seem hasty to some. Overall, it's a good read though. Definitely recommended! ?

Short and sweet.

The ML fell for the MC way too abruptly. Translation needs a lot of work. Its just a little better than MTL.

Short. Cute. A bit angst. Fluff.

The translation a bit choppy but the story is light so it's not really a big problem..

Too short and sweet. I love Man Man He Qi Duo, every story of this author that I have read is really cute and fluffy. MC is just in my liking fierce but timid and shy with ML. I agree with other readers ML fall in love with MC too suddenly, I think he liked MC even before reality show, at least a little bit since he agreed to marriage and was faithful but author didn't mention that, this part was somewhat vague. I don't know what ML really thought... more>> about MC or why did he agreed to marriage. Despite this I still liked story very much. <<less
