First time reading a BL novel w/ Gong protagonist.

Mixed feelings about this one.

... more>>
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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?

Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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

Very slice of life, but interesting to read because author did a good job on developing the story. The chanters are very realistic, despite a manic or two. I loved reading it! Very enjoyable!

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.

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>>
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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

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

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

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

Eh- I feel kind of weird with how the story flow occured. Maybe it is because of culture difference? I'm getting kind of confused with some others.

Anyway, as of now, my bias is Madame Mu. She is kind but is not easily fooled either. She wants the best of her kids and when she noticed that Mu Yixi put the stolen things on the kid robber, she said that it is alright to protect yourself if others try to harm you. It was not selfish or a nag to be... more>> "good". It was a reminder that they can protect themselves. She will always be there to support them if somehow in the future, they can't. <<less

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>>
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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

Characters:

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,

Excerpt

Spoiler

"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!"

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

The intricacies of causality around the MC make sense, at first the chapter 20s was a bit boring because the original conflict hadn't started yet, but after that it was quite fun. This story doesn't have deep emotion even though the author repeatedly emphasizes how MC cares for his family but the explanation of the inner conflict is quite shallow, basically it's the same as in the synopsis. The story isn't too heavy, but not too light either. Only regret that the inner fluctuations of MC and ML were not... more>> explored initially so that when the story continued to be the focus of problems involving MC and ML's feelings, it felt less about my heart to be very hurt.

Sorry for my poor English, I use Google translate. 😅 <<less

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.

hnggg it's generally interesting; highlighting obligations to family, familial love and whatnot. Mc's trauma is also portrayed nicely; he is scheming, controlling, and paranoid.

but I personally don't really like the writing style. Once a character is introduced, you will get several paragraphs detailing their genealogical diagram along with their intercine family conflicts lol.
