I read this right after finishing [The Only Favourite Ugly Husband], which is probably why this novel wasn't very impactful in comparison.

This novel is very lovely, lighthearted, and there are a lot of great relationship development, side character development, and slice-of-life farming moments. It's also super fun that both MC and ML are transmigrated and knew each other in their past life.

However.

... more>> It's one of those very commonly found BL novels that if you replaced the MC with a woman, absolutely nothing would change.

Quote the ML in ch66: "Luo Fei has good looks, a good personality, is good at needlework, and now, is good at cooking... just a top quality wife who has no parallel."

:)

It's true that a lot of BL have the MC (usually the bottom/shou/feminine role) essentially act the role of the female in a heteronormative relationship, but in this story, it's especially emphasized because of the existence of "ger" males who can get pregnant, and are treated as if they were female by society as a whole.

So we get literally the exact social biases, constraints, and poorly executed feudal oppressiveness that we would see in any "straight" heterosexual relationship novel.

  • For example, the MC cannot go to town by himself because he is "too beautiful" and he needs to take care.
  • For example, the mother of a love rival constantly tells the MC that the ML will forcefully "divorce" him because he hasn't gotten pregnant after 1 month of marriage. (and this is one-sided divorce, only "men" can write divorce books in feudal societies.)
  • For example, the MC "marries" the ML the same way a woman marries a man, he ends up wearing a wedding veil so no one "but his husband" can see his face, his wedding 'gown' has "phoenixes" on it, he has 'left' his familial home, and all his children will have the ML's surname.
The same society is also in [The Only Favourite Ugly Husband], but what made that novel different (and humorous) was that the "ger" broke all those feudal standards (he was dark, strong, manly-looking, and tall) to show readers that "hey you're reading a BL novel with MEN" instead of "hey you're reading a het novel with a BL label!"

Also "ger" in that novel could choose to marry women instead because they had man-parts... which makes a lot more sense than in this one, where they're treated as purely female.

Spoiler

And the protagonist in [The Only Favorite Ugly Husband] goes against common sense in the feudal social order because he has a modern perspective, such as stating that he doesn't care if his daughter stays single all her life as long as she's happy.

[collapse]

Spoiler

While in this one, we have an MC who starts setting up "child betrothals" for his newborn son with other kids in the neighborhood because "people need to be married by 16."

[collapse]

And hey, if a "real guy" by our modern standards was forced into those feudal societal constraints for "girls, " d'yall really think he'd be totally fine with it, totally happy to be pregnant, with everyone judging his worth by how "fat" his baby was at birth and how many babies he can have? f*ck no.

Since this is a fluffy/comedic novel, you can say that all of that angst/struggle/identity stuff is set aside for the sake of the fluff/comedy.

Sure.

I'm only letting people know about this because no other reviews mentioned it and I wished I had been warned before jumping in.

Translation-wise, not bad. There are some mistranslated parts but overall it gets better. I read the raws after chapter 27. <<less

Reading this fluffy slice of life novel feels especially healing after reading a bunch of serious ones. I don't care much about the mpreg but the characters here made it super worthwhile to read. MC isn't a hypocrite and would admit his flaws (even if he is grouchy about it) and ML is not OP black-bellied either. It's nice to read about them struggling in the ancient world and missing modern convenience/techs.

Translator did a really a good job too! Thank you very much for your hardwork Dandan-mein ❤️

Interesting. Looking forward to read next.

The usual stuff, the protagonist tried to suicide. The original soul was dead and transmigration soul enter. I love the protagonist character though. He not let himself get bullied, he got revenge.

If you like mpreg, slice of life, heartwarming family story, this will be an enjoyable ride for you.

I love the way author write the character's development because they genuinely grow as the story goes. Not the escalating quickly type of romance nor the very slow paced one. Everything seemed to flow naturally. Our MC and ML is so lovable I assure you.

I grew fond of every single characters in the story too (even the supposedly mean ones)

Spoiler

Especially the kids who end up marrying one another. Awww so cute. My only complaint is that there is no continuation about the kids' married life lol I'm sorry I know I'm asking for the impossible because this story won't ever end that way.

[collapse]

The ending is wrapped neatly too I don't bear grudge after I finished reading it surprisingly, which is a rare case since lots of good stories out there unfortunately have unsatisfactory ending.

The translator did a good job and I can see that they updated very frequently wow you guys rocks! <<less

A pretty interesting story! I Love it so much! I thought it'd be another rom-com, but I didn't expect that the plot is quite unique. Usually for a transmigrating stories, the MC and ML have a little bit advantage, like a golden finger. They usually born as a royal family, a cultivator, or scholar, adventurer, or even reborn in the wild (meaning they'd do another survival game). But not with this one, it's clearly normal!

The ML is not some OP chara with black bellied or possessive tendencies, so it actually... more>> come really nice for me. He's witty, funny, yet hard-working and cool. The MC also not some tsundere or kuudere OP chara, he's really honest with his feeling, e.g if he don't like or he want something then he truly express it. He's also aware of his weakness and didn't go bitching around. For a modern people who crossed-over to the country-side in the past, he calmly accept it, though somehow he missed his modern world... and somehow it gives me a realistic and logic vibes.

I don't know another story with the same plot, but it's the first time for me to read a story where the MC and ML truly reborn in a country-side, reborn as a poor really really poor person, and even live as one of the poor country-side people. Like you know, having a cow is considered rich, and eating rice already feel like extravagant, and don't mention eating fruits T_T I feel like i've really taken for granted for what I have right now. The trivial matter I have, I use, and I get everyday feel like too extravagant if I compare it to lives in a country-side in the past.

It's a good story, with refreshing plot and details, best for you who's tired of the normal Rom-com you read nowadays. Sadly the translation progress still far from the end : (I tried to read it using MTL, but couldn't get the same feeling as I read the real translation, maybe because there are much of chinese phrase or puns. <<less

Worth it. Worth every second that I have used just to finished this novel. Although I read it through MTL, it was easy to understand and I also can't wait for the translator to finish translating this novel! Whether you want to start off right away through MTL or read it at the pace as it's released, I can guarantee that this has everything you hoped for in a light yet love filled story. That's why when it finished it still kept me wanting more, not because the ending isn't... more>> enough (honestly, that depends on the person, which for me it was really okay) but because I still wanted to see more of the characters as they are all unique and likable. That's why rest assured, there are no annoying recurring villains or whatnot, only great people with great development.

Spoiler

although I really wished that I could see the remaining characters in the modern world and how they all interact, huhu hopefully there is an extra that I just didn't know about

I usually don’t care for slice-of-life stories, but this one was a charming read.

Usually the main characters in historical settings are from rich and powerful families, but that’s not the case here. The MC and ML are just too poor villagers. It’s refreshing to read about characters who aren’t royalty/nobility.

I appreciate the fact that the author raised the issue of there not being a functional toilet in a historical setting. There are so many historical stories on here, but no one talks about the restroom problem. It’s like no fictional... more>> character ever poops.

i don’t care much for the mpreg genre, ‘though. The MC could’ve been a woman and the story wouldn’t have changed much. <<less

ML and MC are funny and lovely, the relationship so far is not forced and the misunderstandings dont last much. The family fluff and fights are realistic and nice to read, the translation is well done and all the characters have their own quirk that makes the story a very good read.

I was MTLing for a week now (@chap 92 currently) and I appreciate how it is more about family building instead of dog blood drama. OFC it's fun & satisfying to see the people who had thrown uke off the bus to be face-slapped regretting their choice whenever they did cameo but I enjoy seeing the little bun more and the family and friends coming together and becoming closer.

This is a story where both characters transmigrated (at a different year tho). ML is hilarious. He had his cool sides but... more>> his private, pervert side is much more fun to see. That separates him from the cookie-cutter standard kickass semes that are common. There is nothing toxic about their romance and I also love how the couple were poor and hardworking at the start. No overpowered man from the modern world. Their normality made them identifiable and down to earth. <<less

Absolutely adore this couple! The ML is soo sweet. I love how he treats the MC as his most precious. Truly husband material omg. I love how it's a little different from other transmigration stories I've read so far where both the MC AND ML are transmigrators. I'm curious to know more about their past life! Huge thanx to the translators! Can't wait to read more !

Love this slice of life, no golden finger kind of transmigrated story. ML was an agriculture major while MC studied film/ theater/ entertainment related things but is good at embroidery.

I like how the author included things that modern people enjoy but ancient people don't, making this transition difficult for the MC... ahem, toilets, being able to eat rice and meat instead of rice porridge, no AC, etc.

I Love the family so much.

Their closeness and care for each other will really warm your heart.

The plot isn't tension gripping but you will still love it because it is a light and fun read.

The characters are caring for one another and the protagonists interactions with each other as the story goes will definitely make you smile.

If you love light and fun reads this is for you.

If their are people who want to try and read something new this is also for you.

Have fun reading!

This one started off as annoying because of the MC but you cant really blame it because that's his character ever since he was born. I have a big respect to the ML though, like for real, can I have a husband like him pleaseeee.

This one is really good I promise you, I finished this long time ago and I'd read it over and over again

Overall. I like this story. He still didn't make me headech and weight in my psicologically and this is so sweet. I hope Lou Fei can accept Xi Yanqing quickly and make some sweet and fluffy romance. And I hope the author can describe and give some clear picture what they do, eghmmm.. What I mean is, there is adult/ecchi/hentai/mature and romance activity and action in the bedding between Luo Fei and Xi Yanqing.

But... Can the translator decrease the frequency released into 2/3 day??

And the last. For author and translator...... more>> Thank a lot for your hard work and your work hard. Cause, with reading some enjoying sweet story I can relax my activity.. <<less

I love how the story ends. A very heartwarming and light story. I love the couple and their children. It's nice to see that the ending is very beautiful.

I thought that they will die after a few months or years after marrying off their children. I wish there's a little bit more written about their children after they die but I like the ending.

So far pretty entertaining.

The interactions are a-typical and the author has done some research on the living conditions during the ancient times which deserves an extra star from the average enjoyable rating (for me that is 3*)

Seems like it is a pretty easy going story about daily living otherwise.

This series is delightful and the translation is smooth and brings across the hilarity very well! The one stars are obviously from people who automatically hate it because of the yaoi tag. The ML loves teasing the MC, which will probably come back to bite him when he wants the MC to take him seriously.
