This is the story about the rebirth of a xiao gōng with a sweet steamed bun-like xiao shòu.

In the past life, xiao shòu, in order to help xiao gōng block a poisonous blade, ended up dying due to blood loss.

After the rebirth of xiao gōng, xiao shòu was loved till overflowing.

This is a cliche story which is warm, sweet, no abuse.

The story is exactly as the summary says. Be prepared for a lot of fluff. Plot mostly revolved around court intrigue and the CP is just flat out throwing dog food around.

This isn’t a one-of-kind novel but I still enjoyed it. The shou is pure, soft spoken and obedient but he along the way he proves to be reliable. While some may call his character flat, I personally think that his personality is a result of his upbringing and later on, MC’s doting and therefore realistic.

What I especially loved about this is MC and ML’s families. Both parties are just lovable and agreeable. MC’s father the late emperor and his mother were righteous but kind. ML’s immediate family did not even think of taking advantage of his position all throughout.


However, I do wish that certain side characters could’ve been fleshed out more to add color to the story.

I’ll be waiting for the translations but you can definitely MTL this. Don’t think too hard when you’re reading this and don’t compare BL stories in Ancient China settings to your morals in real life. If you can’t stomach an underaged ML then don’t bother picking this up at all. <<less

i’m.... so many things.... first of all.. ... more>>

u fell in love with a BOY U RAPED. u dont even know him... he died for u and all u can do is sit there and draw pedophilic pictures and romanticising him.. you say u love him (for 30 years! wow! all that time he was dead and u didnt even know he existed :)) but youve only loved the idea of him unconditionally loving you and dying for you... you bring him back into the palace to f*ck his life up... entitled ass prick...


i’m thinking I guess I really cant deal with emperors plot stuff if they have like.. “oh no, we must have other people in the harem cus thats... politics!” while the supposed lover of the emperor just gotta sit there grit their teeth and endure this f*cked up plot honestly man... you’d find a better life in a simple home somewhere tbh... <<less

sweet... sweet... sweet

I like the way the prince prepare for Lin Jiabao to become queen. He didnt deliberatly opposed his father & mother, but he shows with his cleverness how he didnt need help from harem to stabilize his throne. He also knows how to protect Jiabao from harm eventhough Jiabao is someone who is brave & firm in urgency times. Jiabao is also such a cutie, he is somewhat naive & (too) kind but he knows how to protect his loved one. Jiabao also not a virgin mary, he... more>> is not someone who always forgive everyone who do harm to him.

All in all, this is such a sweet royal palace story. <<less

The emperor is super gross and his reasons for loving the LJB is just utter bull* he doesnt know sh*t about him basically filled in his idealized person on the ljb after his death then called it love.

Brought him back to the palace just to make him go through sh*t again because he "loves" him.

Poor ljb probably had stockholm syndrome the first time and had to be trapped again

Alright! This is SWEET 💛 (omit 1 star cause I don't really like the Gong)

Truly you would not know what treasure (ayyyyy.... Look at what I did) is until you lose it.

This story is filled with Gong redemption journey towards Shou (read: pampering shou until you have cavities) the problems are solved rather quickly and no heavy dog blood angst.

Rec for a light reading when you just get tired of dog blood stories

SUPER SWEET. This novel is just full of feel-good feelings, not just between ML and MC but also between them and side characters.

It's not full of sunshine, of course. There are bad people but author never lingers much on them, not even to face-slap them, which I appreciate.

Some points I liked is how amazing MC's family and friends are! They treasure MC and take no sh*t from people trying to exploit them. Also kudos to ML for introducing MC to some very good people.

Also, ML too has very good family... more>> and friends. And he treats them well, such as


making sure the friend that died from illness in his past life gets proper medical treatment this time around.


Also, you know how sometimes rebirths steal future ideas from other people as their own? Not ML! He purposely "coincidentally" met the guy who had the idea in his last life, and made sure this guy got credit this time too.

ML and MC are super sweet with each other too. They're adorable and filled me with fluff energy, I kept rolling around on my bed from excitement.

Honestly, the only "flaw" I can find from this novel was that ML was too slag in his past life! <<less

I just don’t like the gong. The shou as a character is so flat and boring. These two combined are basically the perfect example of a typical shoujo couple which I loathe

If you're looking for a sweet and cute story just read this novel. Do drama, tragedy and annoying villains.


I love how ML pampered our cute MC in this whole novel :)

So much pink bubbles

Innocent and pure shou X doting reborn gong

It is easy to MTL

... more>>

gong in the past life was saved by the shou during the assassination in his birthday party and after some slight drama, he found out that the only person who loves him in the harem is the shou and those he dotes were poisoning his balls 😂, so after he was reborn he spoil the shou endlessly and remove everything that blocks them. I like how pure the shou is without any pretense and how doting the ML is


It was not stretch out and has satisfactory ending ♥️ <<less
