I really find this story cuuute~! At first, you really can't help but be torn and feel vexed. After all, contrary to the summary where you only get the feeling of a female and male being bodyswapped without baggages or any strings attached, that is definitely not the case!

Spoiler

Here, we have a female who is head over heels in love with her childhood friend already; that although that childhood friend may be 'passive' at the start, neither affirming nor against FL's advances, we get to see later on some depth of what he truly feels... basically we finally have the chance to see his perspective about FL and their "unlabelled" relationship. That is to say, we get to affirm that after all this time, he truly does care for FL in the romantic sense. Since they grew up together, he just didn't realise how special FL really was for him until later, when she "broke up" with him to be with ML openly, albeit starting out "faked" in hindsight, in order to (primarily) resolve their issue.

[collapse]

However, how it resolved in the end was well-done. Some of you might still feel aggrieved and hoped to stick with the second ML, considering he was with MC for far too long than the main ML; then again, ML is not at a complete disadvantage either. I say author really did well in painting, planning and controlling the pacing, the development of the story. It was really good and true to the personalities of the characters. Suffice to say, they (i.e. the characters) were fleshed out very well.

I do initially agree though when tanzmoon said "ML truly picked the short end of the stick." After all, between our two leads, he was the more logical, clever, smart, calm and collected one. Ability-wise, he was the creamest of the crop, and him taking over FL's body can be considered more of an advantage for her than her on his body. In more than one occasion had FL "forgotten" she was now on ML's body and acted a bit effeminate, completely ruining his initial cool/aloof image. Whereas FL's body now taken over by ML acting cold and scoring high on her CET can only be considered an "upgrade" on her part to a cool/intelligent beauty. But! Do note that FL and ML are two completely different/diverse entities in the first place. One is an aspiring engineer, the other a dancer. So, before you go on berating FL for sabotaging ML's image, ML likewise caused chaos on FL's dancing opportunities, even made her lose her original spot/the original offer given to her by her department to be the main dancer on a special event, something she really practiced hard for the past months before they swapped.

Anywaay, bottomline, both FL and ML had their own strengths and weaknesses. And it's interesting to note how, bit by bit, they try to compromise to their situation, learning about each other in the process. FL is loveable af. She knew some of her shortcomings (most of it coming out comedic), and was very apologetic for acting out of place once she realised she wasn't ML-like and wasn't embarrassed to admit such mistakes and ask for ML, the more clever one, for help. And ML, esp. once he realised his own feelings for FL, began to soften around her, understand and appreciate her, and see her in a different light. But of course, since he's so inexperienced in that department, some of his attempted "confessions" can only be considered pitiable as hell. XDDD lol

As for the romance, it was cute, a bit slow but very understandable, considering their circumstances. Though them falling was inevitable, it didn't happen abruptly. FL did not easily fall out of the old love nor did she quickly fall in for the new one. Then again, like in real life, somewhere in between, it just... happened.

I read up to the translated part, Ch. 7 part 3/Ch.34, and MTLed the rest. As such, there are some things I'm not very clear about. Then again, I don't mind rereading it again once the translated versions are up. Hui3r is an excellent translator group, having read some of their other works like Heyi Shengxiao, so... all the more reason not to hesitate.

For those wanting a break, and want to read something cute and light, I definitely recommend reading this. I don't really get the 1-star raters for giving this a very low score. :T Imo, an average of 4.1 is too low. Perhaps a 4.6-4.8. Oh well, either way, I hope these words will give some encouragement to other readers out there to seriously give this a try. <<less

This one so far is the best of the gender bender novel type Ive ever read. The translation is great (kudos to the translator 👍👏👏). I just hope this will be continuously updated. Waiting for more chapters.

Chapter 1 is quite confusing with droping like 8 or so characters and making ir really hard to understand who is who. But if you read further all becomes clear in the first 3 chapters and after that it flows quite nicely. Solid read so far.

Cute story, however it does drags a bit and nothing really important happens for a series of chapters until they switch back (in which it just becomes plain fluff afterwards) ; other then that its the MC ruining the ML's image and dignity. The ML is stubborn but he's careful to maintain her relations and not cause trouble. The MC on the other hand does not at all; she's impulsive, acts upon her emotions, requires people to clean up after her messes and is selfish. She's an happy-go-lucky person (and... more>> dare I say shallow and spoiled) that spares no thought towards the ML's life and pursues her own goals and desires selfishly. This selfishness continues even after they switch back. Honestly although I dont have an outright problem with her character (I mean a lot of MCs are like her) but she wont be a character that I particularly like or support if there was a better alternate for the ML. <<less

I loved this novel so much!

It's so cute and so fluffy and has a kinda different concept as compared to other modern day romance novels.

So basically, In the first half of the novel, the FL and ML's souls get swapped and they have to face hilarious and embarrassing situations while being in each other's bodies. Although the ML in the FL still makes her appear cool due to his aloof nature.... the FL in the ML though... haha, read and you'll find out. I felt so sorry for the ML... more>> sometimes lol.

Spoiler

The romance is really smooth. The FL loved her childhood friend in the beginning, the second ML but his feelings for the FL were really ambiguous and when she left him, he realised that he, after all did love her. As for the ML, he was someone who absolutely had no interest in the opposite gender and he was as cold as Antarctica of course. But after the whole body swap thing, he grows close to the FL and slowly falls in love with her. He loves her alot and she becomes his most important person.

[collapse]

In any case, read this story because it's really sweet and different. The ending got me like but it was still a nice bittersweet ending anyway, mostly sweet. <<less

It's quite hilarious (after their souls were switched), I find the guy MC is truly pitiful, he truly picked the short end of the sticks! The translation quality is also good. Looking forward to more.
