First time reading a BL novel w/ Gong protagonist.

Mixed feelings about this one.

... more>>

Main character (MC) rebirth back to his 6 year old self, goes back w/ Mrs. Mu to Mu family & from then becomes a good child to his step-mother who loved him previously & good elder brother to his half-silbings. MC is very smart & capable, especially since he took down the big Mu family in his previous life, so in this life, he becomes extra caring to repay the previous life's debt & enjoy the love from them.

He meets his lover early when he was still 6 year old who's was the genius that went head to head against him in his previous life. Of course, MC with his old soul, feels like he bullying this child genius and their relationship begins from there. Through each interaction, they gradually understand each other and their true selves are revealed.


I usually read BL novels with shou protagonists but I didn't know MC was the gong until afterwards.

It is a nice read if you like gradual and touching love plus little drama & a lot of slice of life that brings life to the story. <<less

I have no idea why this story is named the way it is lol. That said, it's a really good story.

Dang MC really really suffered (voluntarily, but still). Fortunately, ML is there to care for him and help MC love himself more. I really like these characters and the relationship dynamics, since it's so rare for the MC to be the gong. That said, I actually dislike the stereotypes of how gong should be one type and shou should be another type of character, but that's a discussion for another... more>> day. Putting this matter aside, I like both characters, as well as the other side characters around them.

Someone criticized ML&MC's romance and said MC wasn't that good for ML. Honestly, I disagree. From his perspective, romance was not even on his mind at the beginning; he deeply wanted to cherish and atone the Mu's, so everything about his life revolved around them. However, ML also became his playmate, and he was treated on par / better to his siblings. ML by nature is cold and rejects others, yet MC was there to actively approach him and expose to the outside world. ML also knows how much MC values the Mu's. The other reviewer also said MC was basically a scheming a$$hole, but that's not true at all???? He's scheming and ML is there to hold him back, but he does it for the good of those he cares about and he does reflect on himself. Sure his care of his siblings sometimes goes overboard, but it never actually went too far and it never actually hurt ML. The one time with the engagement is the exception, but I don't think that was only MC's fault at all (more ranting in the spoiler). All in all, MC schemes if he has to to protect those he cares about, which includes ML.

I read the chapters through MTL, and I got tired of MTLing after a while so I stopped at CH83, but I feel like I read most of the story?


MC especially suffered from the matter of the engagement, which subsequently led to ML leaving him. First of all, in this situation, I feel MC definitely suffered more than ML. He couldn't possibly throw his sibling aside, and he never actually intended on getting engaged. However, ML didn't listen to a word of explanation and closed himself off completely.

That's why I don't know why ML & his parents are SO upset. Yes they can be somewhat upset, but ML also just left without hearing about MC's plans and trusting in him. He seems like he trusted, but he turned around too quickly for it to be considered actual trust. Not to say I don't understand; MC has all but served up his bloody heart on a silver platter for the Mu's, so I get why ML might be worried MC would pick them, but still. Since he left without giving MC a chance, it doesn't make sense to me why they're so upset w MC when ML was also in the wrong.

Also, I actually hope mu yiqi & yan yu won't be together. Life is not always happy, and especially considering all that MC sacrificed for MYQ to be happy, it makes me low-key satisfied that MYQxYY won't end up together. They had a chance, but neither was willing to chase after it. Not that I don't like MYQ; even though MC suffered so much, it's hard to dislike MYQ, especially since MC was willing the whole time.


Plot hole: The presence of another reincarnated (other than yan yu) in the beginning of the story that pushed bad events disappeared? That Uncle Wei turned out to be an ordinary businessman... <<less

It's a good read, better than most rebirth stories full of revenge. This one is more about the protagonist's atonement and reparations after being an as*hole in his previous life

... more>>

In his previous life, his biological mother brainwashed him from the age of 6 to hate his father's current family so that when he had joined his father's family, he thought they're out to get him. he wanted to take over his father's family business and destroyed the family in the process. He later realized his father's wife truly tried to care for him as an adopted son and his step siblings weren't malicious at all.


The romance is frustrating. Like, the MC is a loving, overprotective brother and adoring adopted son but as a boyfriend, he's lacking. The ML deserves someone better tbh but he just... loves the MC with all his faults and makes the reader feel like I don't have the right to judge him for giving in to MC easily.

NO, he doesn't take MC's sh*t lying down, he calls him out at every opportunity and not afraid to confront MC. But he easily forgives the MC. His IQ and EQ is higher than his peers so when presented with a situation, he's like "oh, he did this because of blah blah, I'm angry right now but I understand, I'll forgive him eventually so im gonna cut the bullsh*t now" Huhu, seriously, I wanna punch MC sometimes. I can understand though, MC is jaded and most of his actions are calculated, and ML gets it too. They're living in a world where emotional attachments aren't priorities when it comes to family business and they're lucky enough to be able to be together as it is. Still, ML deserves all the world, okay?! ML, please make MC cook more for you and spoil you more.

Anyway, it's a good read. The mtl is easy to understand. <<less

TLDR: not for me, I like more fluff.

I got to chapter 20 and don't think I will continue on. I just couldn't connect with any of the characters. I was hesitating reading more and decided to read some of the spoilers in the reviews and this story really doesn't seem like my cup of tea. Sounds like the brother gets turned against him, he isn't the best to the ML and his father is uncaring from beginning to end.

I know other reviewers mentioned how "real" this story is, but personally... more>> I don't want that type of realism that hurts the heart (Give me cavities from sweetness not high blood pressure from angst!) Not that I find it "real" that a step mom loves an illegitimate child so much from the get go, especially from a extremely upper society family, though that idea is what initially drew me to this story. The idea was a nice change of pace from evil family members with the dog blood drama.

The writing is jarring at times, though that could be the translation. Speaking of the translation, be warned that the first translator obviously was in need of an editor, many times words were misspelled and the wrong names were used. Many times I had to re-read a sentence or paragraph and try to figure out which sibling it was supposed to be about. <<less

Good read.

MTL 4☆

... more>>

MC, I felt very sad for him. I know that he is atoning for his wrongs on his precious life. But it just hits hard. Its good that MC's sister was very clear on the sacrifices made by MC for them. How he has done everything in his power to protect and shield them younger siblings and their mother. I was very happy to know that someone is seeing this, and know this, and they were also hoping that MC get his own happiness.

MC's bro, yo, I really dont know how to feel about him. He is very naive, thats why he does everything he wants when he wants to, at MC's expense. Im glad that he and YY didnt end up together, but was also glad that in the extra there is a possibility of rekindling their feelings.

Scum dad, oh gosh, I just want to strangle you if I could. Being indifferent to MC, threatening him, saying bad thing about him to his brother, using him, is already to much. Now when he looked for MC's brother immediately after seeing MC when he was just saved, it just broke my heart for MC.

ML, I love their transparency with each other. He knows MC is deeply devoted when it comes to the 3 mother and children. He knows MC is definitely not a good thing. He knows MC is scheming, manipulative, paranoid and kinda crazy. He knows that MC's family will always be a priority for MC. Oh, he knows it all. But he fell for him anyway. And I feel like he is the balance here. MC's couldn't wait to die for their family, but ML was there to balance it out. MC finally have someone to look after him.

I don't hate it, but, to be honest, I am rather confused.

From the synopsis, I deduced the story to be more of a slice of life, the kind where the main character changes his life trajectory and enjoys the blessings and familial love, but no, it's not. The plot was so full of dog blood that my brain was short-circuited for a sec (I really didn't expect to read a story about 6 y.o. Kids scheming against each other. Damn, their height couldn't even reach my waist, yet they were... more>> so vicious and cunning at such a young age?).

More importantly, there were many intermittent parts that appeared out of nowhere. I was so confused that I even went to recheck whether the translator had unintentionally skipped the text or any chapter (they're not!). Hence, my rating was quite low since I couldn't fully understand the text and connect the dot.

However, I really like the high IQ of both protagonists. The process of them admitting their feelings and clearing misunderstandings was quick, decisive, and without worry. They were straightforward and didn't hide their affection for each other. It was sweet. The love and care between siblings was also pure and adorable. It's just that most, if not all, of the adult characters were too bad and selfish. The combination of entitled, two-faced, narcissistic, and psychopathic people in the story was really baffling. <<less

The narration is good. It felt like slowburn yet at the same time, not. It's interesting to see his interaction with his siblings and traps that he laid down to catch old foxes. For some people, the romance might be lacking. But with the MC's mentality, that part was obviously well-written. He was more focused on her adopted mother and half-siblings, and romance was not his thing. He's pretty much laidback about it and it's a miracle that he accepted the ML after thinking it thorough. He didn't hate him.... more>> He was not sure about his feelings. But it shows clues how much he wants that person, although vague. And finally realise that he really love the ML.

I also like the Mu couple. Their relationship is full of foreshadowing on how they really feal for each other. While reading the novel, it made ponder if there's any 'love' in there marriage by understanding their slight hint of interaction and dialogues.

Just that the last incident made me somewhat 'eh, what?' for a moment. That part can be written in the extra but not that important in the main.

All in all, the elements are good. Showing different kinds of relationship, love, and commitments that will contrast on each other. It is not a usual trope of rebirth-revenge story (atleast it's path is somehow different) and addition to how the author carried it.

I just wrote 4 stars because of some unnecessary parts and plot hole. <<less

This is very good read. MC is not cold arrogant, not too op and not s*upidly filial. He made error in judgement and loss. He can lower himself to trap his enemy, not typical MC who will buldoze everything in his path of success. And he's the gong. There's no public acceptance for gay so the situation is kinda realistic. He's also not typical patriotic huaxia MC. In the end he went abroad. Other characters are also very 3d. His brother is actually pretty cute. He, in the end, knew... more>> about MC sacrifice, and changed himself so his brother can be released from burden. No cliche evil brothers and no cliche MC become most Richest/ powerful ceo. In this novel, there's clear causal effect in MC relationship with his family. In his relation with ML, its quite realistic. Some said that The ML deserves someone better but here's none! It's MC who reach to ML but it's ML who fall first! Plus, you love someone you need to understand and forgive. Without those, it's not love. It's just eros. Dont use american standard, bcause they re too much egoistic (but ofc cheating is not included). Remember, if you want to get something, you have to pay. I love that this novel is not cliche dogblood romantic mary sue or princess syndrome type. It's realistic relationship. You cant cut your family for your lover, except your family is scum (and mc's family, except his dad, is sweet and support him and MC relationship, so it's understandable if he prioritize them). Very good. And it's also bittersweet. <<less

It's.. alright. First off I really like the story actually. It's one of the better ones, the complexities of their relationships (+ family relationships) and how it's portrayed is so very nice. It's built layer by layer. I didn't think too much about it at the beginning; but gradually after around 50 chapters I began to notice how much better I like the characters/stories. It's built up really well!! Shows alot of growth and progress, and is very interesting for the plot.

It's just that the way it's written is too... more>> disjointed. The chapters feels less like a cohesive piece of work, but more like drafts put together to be a chapter. An example would be chapter 36, 37, 38, 39, 40.. the way it starts a scene half-way and then dropped/switched to something else is so mind-boggling? I couldn't tell left from right, what happened, what's going on. While I enjoy the story when it's a full piece, but every-time I open a new chapter I'm always ready to fist fight god to see if it's another disjointed chapter. It also makes the pacing really weird, but that's a minor issue compared to how unreadable the story becomes when certain chapters are just??? not up to standards.

The overall look at the premise itself is interesting... there's a strong emphasis here on the mother (Mrs. Mu) and the MC's whole-heartedly wants to protect her and her children. Other stories will generally have the MC focus more on himself and his goals, but it's quite interesting here. Although he transmigrated quite young (6 years old?) -- it wasn't as jarring or bad as other novels because there's a larger cast, and there's less of a pressure for the CP to get together (which I always find kind of strange in other novels when they're like, below the age of ten, but have a very mature/strong CP set-up for grown ups... but this is a personal preference I'm learning about myself too!) <<less

Never put in on my reading list, and yet today I chose to read this... And fell in love in the end... Heh

The Family feels... Was sooo gooood!!!

We get to see MC getting the Childhood he deserve... And yet we get to see how MC really try to Protect his Most Important Family members as much as he can!

At the beginning it came from Guilt and the Emptiness he had felt when he 'Won' and Destroy his Adopted Mother and the so-called Father in the previous life. But tasting the... more>> Warm welcome from his Adopted Mother and Half-siblings, his feelings became more sincere. Sure still have guilt, but other can see the Guilt also came from another reason.

His existence as the Half-sibling. The Illegitimate Son.


Interestingly... This novel also show other side characters that has interesting complex family. Their upside down problem was really interestingly written. Though mostly just described rather an actual scene, but it was intriguing !

And then the things between MC and ML. Because how they always been together since childhood, and MC does like to tease and carinh about ML, AND most importantly because ML also know about MC's Cunning Black-Belly personality, the way their relationship develop was so Natural!

Though the Confession scene and how they progress since then was Cute and Funny but also Lovely Sweet!

I pray soooooo hard the rest of the story was satisfying and comforting this worrying heart!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Finished at 27 March 2023

Okay, to be honest, the end of the main story was somewhat feels anticlimax to me. But maybe that's just me.

But-! The Extras completing the story very well, so Everything is Good! 👌

All the Family feels between MC and his beloved family members are Perfectly good till the end. So much relief!

Relationship between MC and ML are Great! They really know each other's actions very well, so they hardly have misunderstanding, though doesn't mean it was all Drama Free.

MC's Siblings living well is absolutely happiness. They matured and all. Lovely!

So does this novel have satisfying ending? Hmm.... Idk. But is it disappointing? Definitely not!

And I do still Loving it! It's a Worth reading Novel! <<less

It’s ok, it’s honestly exactly as the summary says: MC rebirths and protects his family as recompense for utterly destroying them in the last life. After reading, my feelings could really be summed up as “Eh.”, it’s not the worst thing I’ve ever read but it’s also not the best. MC’s the gentle-black belly type, ML’s the cold reserved type, the plot was mildly interesting but it’s more or less just people try to scheme against MC (or his family) and MC takes them down.

I don’t think there’s anything I... more>> truly had a problem with, though I guess the way MC and ML got together was a bit rough. I really liked the way the story actually handled some of the relationships and how at the end it wasn’t a picture perfect life or every relationship had a positive resolution. For example MC’s relationship with his father remained mutually cold from beginning to end, which was realistic. <<less

Just 2 Stars.

[Don't read with expectations of family Fluff, it's a conspiracy solving story instead. And the romance is dull and hurtful in some way]

I will just add a few points and reminders.

... more>> The story has a good plot. But beware, the flow is very boring and long. The only good point this book has is its drama (like the whole conspiracies and problems to be solved, enemies to be dealt by parts).

This is no Childcare story. There is no Fluff. Don't even expect reading with normal mood. The characters are twisted in a weird way. Even the main leads, the MC and ML have an unsatisfactory relationship. Some of their actions, especially of MC's were hurtful. And I stand my ML's side on this. If your lover wanted you to be a 'mistress' for some time to protect his family, no normal person would accept it. I sympathize with the ML, not the MC. And not to forget, the moral concept in this novel was just out of borders and lines. Can't even explain it.

Conclusion : The plot was good. The family story, main love story and slice of life part isn't. Even the translation is agnozing at times. Hi <<less

I don’t know what exactly to feel about this novel..... I just finished reading this !

I had high expectations from this one but somewhere I felt that the author just went along with some things to just makeup for length of the novel ?

IMO the plot relating to the ML (Shou) biological parents was totally unnecessary and there could have been better characters to be fleshed out. Honestly it was not necessary to be so dog blood..... TBH I just hate dog blood so people who like it may approve... more>> but I don’t.... I’m sorry..

Then again there is the MC........ you can say I have a soft spot and bias towards all the pitiful characters out there......... but I felt like the MC was made to take the upper path in many situations like he was just supposed to tolerate and understand and coax people because he just lived one more life....... MC this guy he saw all the people as children doesn’t mean he has to accommodate and apologise and be the first one to let go....... he did that in the last life and he did that in this life........ it felt like he just relived his life not being used by others but voluntarily giving his all....... Most hateful are the MC’s father and grandfather...... =_= <<less

Aaaaah one of my favourite tropes 🤧 A villain's heel-face turn is always a treat to read. Another plus point for me is that in this lifetime, he confronted his regrets head-on and came to genuinely love his found family.

Anyway it's always nice to see the villains turning into vengeful hens protecting their chicks (and nests) and pecked every obstacle that came their way. I like to see them using their past lives' ability, knowledge and scheme for the good side.

Just so-so. Not much romance or fluff going on. Family interactions are just ok.

It has potential, but the writing can't live up to it. And it even got more boring after they grew up.

The childhood part is definitely the most interesting and touching part.

I am still reading it but I can't help but share my joy in reading this novel. There are times where the timeline and plot seems a bit disjointed but the way the MC and Ml's relationship change and develop is well-written.

This novel is one of the few novels where MC is the gong. I like their interactions, especially how decided who will top.

My opinion about the novel:

A nice story, with a transmigrated MC feeling regret torwards his past choices and actions of ruining the Mu family and letting himself get manipulated by his birth mother.

My summary:

... more>>

He (MC) was raised by his abusive grandmother since birth, on day he was nearly beaten to death and sent to the hospital. Mrs. Mu who is compassionate torwards children saw him, who looked so similar to her own son in such a miserable state and was shocked. She felt the need to protect him and wanted to adopt him knowing he was her husbands illegitimate son, but was intercepted by MC's birth mom who suddenly turned up. 6 year old MC was naive and followed his birth mom who played loving sad mom act and so Mrs. Mu couldn't do anything. He was then raised and manipulated to believe that Mrs. Mu looked down on him, she destroyed his mother's happy family life and his half siblings wanted to take everything that rightfully beloved to him. When he was 14 years old he was 'finally' adopted into the Mu family. He then slowly destroyed this family from within, including the kind and genuinely caring Mrs. Mu. Later on he had an illness and died in a hospital reflecting and regretting his decisions in life, but then he unexpectedly woke up at the age of 6 heavily injured. Meeting Mrs. Mu for the first time again, he swore he would protect her and everything dear to her.

Now in this new life he immerses (and enjoys) himself in the role of a child, but is inwardly calm and in control. Only the eccentric ML can break his calm and take a loss. I love the childish interactions of MC teasing/threatening ML with a kiss after taking a loss.


Overall it is a heartwarming slice of life story with some comedy elements and a bit of rich family drama.


ML: Feng Weiming, nickname = Mingming is Third Uncle's adopted son

(MC and ML may be cousins, but they are not blood related!)

Personality: aloof, mysophobia, iceberg face, a bit antisocial/reclusive, high IQ

ML's adoptive father: Mu Jiuqing, in charge of overseas affairs, lives in France, cares very much about ML, likes to tease him

MC's adoptive Mother: Mrs. Mu, kind, a bit of a holy mother torwards MC, otherwise a realistic and strong upper class woman

MC's Father: Mu Jiurong, in charge of domestic affairs,



"If he (=MC) really treats me as his father, why isn't he trying to talk to me? He thinks that I can't tell that he genuinely likes my wife, but is reluctant towards him? What a little brat!"


Grandfather + Grandmother (father's side) : neutral stance, wise, <<less

I enjoyed this for the most part. I enjoyed the day to day interactions with the siblings and mom a lot, as well as the natural progression of the main CP.

The final hurdle/situated that was dealt with tho...3 of them back to back to back. That was a lot. Then 3rd uncle deciding to stay with the head case had me wondering if the author was alright.

Still, all in all a sweet story that managed to cleanse my palate after going through the ringer with a complicated xianxia story

This is in essence a tr*shy family drama you'll see in TVs. The same kind you guys will mock your mom's for watching. It's just so absurd. But I'll rate it 3/5 for the sheer absurd entertainment it gave me. I completed it in disbelief thinking maybe there'll be some redemption for the characters but noooo. Also the plot twist in the end is unbelievable. Just wtf ? Lots of these people need to be in jail.

Also it ended rather adruptly with many loose threads.

But minus marks for the misogynistic... more>> tones in it throughout. Not just once but multiple times. Like all BLs, this lacks strong female characters. The ones who are there are either mother Mary types or b*tchy cheating girls. The tone used towards describing her sister made me sad. The only redeeming and complex character is Mrs. Mu.

Meanwhile the plot is extremely thin, things happening are just happening. The world building is thin AF. Idk the age gap between the MC and ML are very clearly obvious at times. 20 yr mental age gap.

I personal really dislike our MC. He is someone who needs therapy. Immediately. He is overbearing and manipulative. He feels justified in his actions just because "he wants to keep his family safe". He gaslights his siblings into accepting his behaviour. He is basically a Helicopter Parent™. <<less
