A run-of-the-mill BL transmigration story with not much substance. Story is not really believable. Characters are not really believable either. The world building is also lacking. (As of Chapter 81; but there's only 96 chapters)

At least the author tried to make the MC and ML relationship dynamic a little interesting.

I can't rate it 1.5/5 for some reason. So I've just rate it as 2/5.

To tell the truth, I've read this novel because I've got nothing to read so why not try this?

I don't have any special feelings with regards to this novel. Indeed, it's somewhat new with a demon possessing a body of a third-rate actor etc. However, it's no different with other BLs by which an OP protagonist transmigrated into the body of an actor with bad reputation blah blah.

The MC, Gu Yan is your cold-blooded demon that thinks humans are just ants/food. He has this superiority complex that he thinks he... more>> is above others. This is understandable because he is a demon, basically a carnivore. His mission is to open a portal so that the demons from the demon world would enter the human world and bring demise to the humans. So how can a demon hide his identity with a powerful cultivator hunting him? Also, how did he became a demon? What are those dreams he is dreaming?

The ML, Qin Yao is a powerful cultivator who is a thousand years old and kills demons indiscriminately. He has this immense hatred towards demons. Why?


His master, the person he loves the most was killed by a demon.


Major Spoiler!


And yes! You got that right! Gu Yan was his master. The reason Gu Yan became a demon was due to the intense betrayal he felt when he was a general in the past. He was good, he's loyal to the emperor, he protected the citizens but why did everyone betrayed him? Why did people mocked/hated him even after his death? So he sold his soul to the devil. The ML, btw, was in retreat because he was cultivating to become stronger so that he can protect the MC. But after 10 years, when he returned, he found out the MC was already dead so he became really cold and killed those who framed the MC. However, many years have passed but he still bears the guilt of not protecting the MC. He wanted to destroy the world but he remembered how his master always say there are still good people so he endured. He tried to summon the MC's soul and return it to his original body but the soul cannot be found. He then realized he cannot summon the soul of his master because the soul was in the demon world.


Gu Yan and Qin Yao are very different from each other. One is a demon and another is a cultivator that kills demons. So if they find out the each other's real identity, how will their relationship break through? What about their beliefs? Who would compromise? Who is the real enemy? These are basically the major conflicts that you would encounter when you read this novel.

I love how the author wrote the MC as someone who was righteous before and then became a cold-blooded demon who has his own beliefs due to his nature. He was calculative, pretentious and smart even towards the ML. He watches everything like a play. Even the ML asked himself if this was really his good master.

This novel was good but not entirely my cup of tea. It has some good points, however, maybe because I've read countless good BL novels and I've read this spontaneously, I did not feel anything special from this novel.

However, you might like this if your into cold, calculative MC's and devoted, aggressive ML's.

Read this now! I think you won't regret it! <<less

The first half of the novel is pretty good, detailing the plan and actions of a demon general to conquer the human world. However, the later part of the novel talks too much of romance, and it takes a strange turn. The op protagonist falls off the power scale and becomes more like a "captive." At the end, the plan to conquer the human world was trashed after a "shocking" revelation (tbh I saw that coming), and the novel ends with some frankly ridiculous drama... And here I was expecting... more>> the eventual fall of human race for real. <<less

i actually really liked this, didn't expect it. lots of fantasy and action. it sorta reads alot like a shounen novel, which was pretty nice too.

ive read so many of those quick transmigration stories where basically the characters' backgrounds are just filler and are just to make the the mc/ML seem cool. in this one though, the MC is believable as a demon boss and is pretty consistent about that. MC is pretty strong and badass (not a pansy). theres enough complexity in the demon part of the story that... more>> made it interesting.

the MC views humans as ants and basically wants to destroy the world. he decides to maintain his identity as an actor in order to complete his goal, so he mixes into the life of the entertainment world. on the way, he begins to realize the human world is more than it seems...


pros: MC and ML are pretty cool, powerful etc., has nice character development, story actually has fantasy elements and is pretty original despite the cliche transmigration/demon/showbiz element.

cons: side characters are forgotten (even tho I liked them), cannonfodder characters were typical, has annoying dogblood chaebol family drama, abrupt ending, plotholes, (some things were never explained)


i mtl the rest and was super confused at the end.


typically the MC and ML get together but somehow all of a sudden the ML goes away leaving MC by himself cuz he was gunna die. (idk tho, mtl wasn't clear) im inferring the ML sacrificed his cultivation or something... MC is depressed, goes looking back at old final battle w the evil boss. finds bloodstains, and somehow the MC figures out MC is there. MC digs up passageway and finds ml, whos hair has gone white.. and ML is not dead somehow.. and then somehow MC somehow saves ML and then the end. there was not alot of explanation and then it just cuts off. I didnt get it haha ^_^'

I MTL'd the whole novel. It was a good and fun read but it also had its flaws.

The story overall was interesting. Gu Yan is truly a cold-blooded demon for most of the story and he doesn't hide his coldness. He's not a super OP character as he's careful with hiding his identity (but reveals his powers when needed) and has weaknesses. He's smart and calculating, and he's a good actor!

Although the author explicit said that the ML is Qin Yao, I low key wanted it to be 3P because... more>> of how well Fu Zhe Chuan treats Gu Yan...


Adding to this, I think the author developed Gu Yan's relationship with Fu Zhe Chuan too much. Gu Yan only sees FZC as an ATM but FZC is soooo good to Gu Yan. I feel like their relationship was better developed than the CP.


Seeing Qin Yao slowly develop his feelings for Gu Yan was also very fluffy but it went 0-100 after he discovered Gu Yan's true identity and then I was like when did this happen????


Honestly, the whole story changed shortly after Gu Yan remembered his human memories and his identity was revealed. The author used the reveal as a transition period but they did it too abruptly. Qin Yao suddenly became 100% devoted and in love with Gu Yan. Although his reasons are understandable, Gu Yan's personality wasn't the same as before and he was still cold to Qin Yao. Also Gu Yan's reason for not destroying the human world leaned more on the logical side, rather than emotional. After recovering his memories, he was still angry at his past. It would've been nice to see him slowly melt and show nicer feelings. But his reason was more like "demon world is grim and desolate, and human world is not, so maybe I shouldn't destroy it".

Maybe it's just how I interpreted it...


The story got a bit repetitive at times as we are constantly reminded of how cold Gu Yan is and how ruthless the demon world is. And the pacing could've been faster.

It's a HE but I'm unsatisfied by it.


It could've been a very satisfying HE, but the author threw in a demon lord twist at the end. And then they threw in another twist IN THE LAST CHAPTER that almost made it BE!!!! After the almost-BE twist was fixed, the story just ended with a couple more sentences! Ahhh author how could you do this...

Really interesting plot, but I just could not get into it after finding out the ML is QY and not FZC. I would really prefer it if FZC just didn't exist. Nobody, especially with his reputation, would act the way he acted towards the MC unless they were the ML of a BL story. Which he apparently isn't. I understand the need for the MC to have a powerful backer, but there's no way anyone would willingly, happily, support someone in the mc's position to that extent, even if... more>> the MC saved him. It's not like the MC couldn't have made opportunities for himself. I mean he's a literal freaking demon with mind control powers and other OP af qualities. And I really freaking like that about the MC. His really freaking confident and arrogant attitude are really fun to read. I'm freaking disappointed that I just can not let go of the FZC thing. Like, make FZC reluctantly pay off his life debt and have his interest be piqued by the mc's really good acting that goes against the mc's horrible reputation. And then have him to continue to back the MC as a side project or something while running his own company.

Disclaimer: I read this a little before I made an NU account so I don't completely remember what I've read and even then I didn't read very far into the story. I put 7 chapters, but that an approximation. So if you can get past the fact that some of the characters dynamics are really unrealistic, you should definitely try reading this yourself. <<less

i was excited that this story is based in the entertainment field but from what I've read in the other comments I'm not sure how relevant that is in the later parts of the story. It was that, not him being a demon, which made me interested to begin with so I'm a little worried i'll just end up dissapointed later on. It's still early days yet so we will have to see as the novel continues.

after the past few chapters I have to say that I'm a little sad... more>> that FZC isn't the ML because I really like him. I think if this was a story without the whole demon/ demon slayer aspect to it he probably would be; there's enough mundane mystery around the accident to keep readers interested in reading even if there wren't any demons involved and it was just a transmigration kind of thing for GY. <<less
