Short, rich, and handsome, Lin Feiran was always the center of attention. But after transferring schools in his second year of high school, he discovered that his limelight was snatched by his Adonis classmate, Gu Kaifeng.

Lin Feiran was very resentful, and he and Gu Kaifeng became archnemesis (one-sidedly). Although the two lived together, they were like strangers.

When Lin Feiran went back home to attend his grandfather’s funeral, he accidentally inherited the Yin-Yang eyes that had been passed down from generation to generation. After gaining the ability to see ghosts, the timid Lin Feiran discovered that his two-person dormitory was actually a sixteen-person (ghost) room. Every day, he was scared to the point of collapsing.

The more aggravating thing is that because of Gu Kaifeng’s innate body constitution, he possessed an abundant amount of Yang energy. Lin Feiran found out that whenever he touched Gu Kaifeng, Gu Kaifeng’s Yang energy could temporarily disable his Yin-Yang eyes. A light touch would disable it for five minutes, a kiss for an hour, and so on…

Lin Feiran had no choice but to throw himself into his archnemesis’s embrace. This complete reversal in attitude to being intimate with Gu Kaifeng persisted every day from morning till night.

When sleeping, he must squeeze in the same bed as Gu Kaifeng. Going to the toilet? He must drag Gu Kaifeng with him. Homework? It must be done hand-in-hand with Gu Kaifeng… He also had to try his best to persuade the teacher to make him Gu Kaifeng’s deskmate. Every day in class, he would rub Gu Kaifeng’s calf with his foot beneath the desks…

Following the clingy little bastard’s sudden change in personality, the initially shocked Gu Kaifeng gradually became smitten. Every day he would chase Lin Feiran to flirt with him, make crazy confessions, and even routinely push him against the wall and kiss him…

Gu Kaifeng: “Don’t you like me? I like you, so let’s be together.”

Lin Feiran: “I don’t like you! Don’t come over!”

Gu Kaifeng: “……”

Five minutes later, to avoid seeing ghosts, Lin Feiran sneakily came to touch Gu Kaifeng.

Gu Kaifeng turned around, stopping his hand: “After you just rejected me, you come back to flirt with me!?”

Lin Feiran: “Who’s flirting with you! I was careless and touched you; don’t imagine that I like you back.”

Oh, that’s it.

Enjoyable read with ghosts.

Teens are actual teens with their hormones filled bodies.

ML is loyal gong and MC is proud shou.

Filled with fluff and ghosts.~

Cute. Sweet. The MC isn't an idiot, though he is a little timid. ML isn't a borderline yandere, though he is a little possessive (nothing as bad a lot of ML in BL or straight romance). Lots of humor and the ghost interactions end up being more touching rather than scary. Made me wish the whole story was a little longer. I want to know what happened after they got out of high school and into college; I wanted to see them grow a little more as people. If this... more>> was longer and a little more in depth i'd probably rate it a five, as it is it's more like a 4.3.

Thank you to the translator, please keep up the good work!

On a side note I need to rant a little: I think it's ridiculous that this author got 10 years in jail for "spreading obscene fiction" in China just because she self-published a BL novel. Her novels (the ones I've read anyways) tend to be sweet and there's very little smut. Aside from that, putting a person in jail for ten years just because she wrote a homoerot*c novel is almost unbelievable. <<less

Lin Feiran (16- or 17-years old) is a somewhat bratty and socially awkward guy who is used to being the center of attention thanks to his money, good looks, and musical talents.

But he's hit a bit of a bump in the road: he recently transferred to a boarding school attended by Gu Kaifeng, and Gu Kaifeng seems to be richer, better looking, and a better student than him. Even worse, this Adonis is his roommate. He just can't catch a break.

Maybe things would be fine - the Arts Festival is... more>> coming up and he's performing a piano solo that is sure to put him in the spotlight - but the death of his grandfather causes him to inherit the mysterious ability to see ghosts. And he's absolutely terrified of ghosts.

But, whenever he touches Gu Kaifeng, the ghosts go away...?

Cue a series of adorable, heart-warming, and intimate interactions between our MC and ML. Every single chapter. The author does not disappoint.

This is a feel-good story. The interactions between Lin Feiran and Gu Kaifeng are guaranteed to make you smile every time.

The more I read this story, the more I fall in love with it.

If you want a bit more sweetness in your life, then definitely give this a read!


I want to say a bit more about the relationship between the MC and the ML in this story. For those who may be concerned, the characters do not start liking each other at random or without reason. Lin Feiran's circumstances are certainly a necessary catalyst, but if you stop and think about it, the development of their relationship seems quite measured.


The relationship between the MC and ML is so far all based on physical attraction. I don't think the ML has a reason yet to especially like the MC emotionally, but he has a lot of reasons to be attracted to him physically, and as long as the MC shows him a good attitude he's happy to use that as a basis upon which to deepen their relationship.

The MC, on the other hand, is discovering that the ML is actually a really nice guy and finds himself having all these subconscious physical reactions (heart beating faster, blushing, etc.) to him. What I'm hoping is that as the story progresses even more, we'll see reasons for actual emotional development in their relationship <3. If it goes like that, I'll probably think the romance as a whole is very well written - they won't have fallen for each other instantly or without reason.

As an added note:

This is also not a story about the MC or ML making the other turn gay. The ML already knows he is gay, and the MC is just... clueless. But the ML recognizes the signs, and is being patient with him (so far at least) as he figures it out for himself. This also adds more complexity to the layers of knowing/not knowing to this story: Gu Kaifeng may not know exactly why Lin Feiran is suddenly sticking to him so much, but he does see Lin Feiran's subtle reactions that let him know Lin Feiran isn't as straight as he wants to believe. Lin Feiran, on the other hand, is so caught up in what he knows that Gu Kaifeng doesn't (namely, the existence of ghosts) that he fails to see the things Gu Kaifeng has noticed about himself...

A sweet and funny BL!

The "misunderstandings" tag here could be misleading. It isn't those angsty type misunderstandings that make you want to slap someone. Rather, these misunderstandings lead to cute moments between the MC and ML that puts a smile on your face.

Hi, this was my first bl story to read, and because of this story, my hetero novel loving self slowly but surely turned into a hardcore fujoshi that imagines my ‘boy’ friends as uh.. Lets just say I sometimes run loose and literaly ship boys in front of teachers, and the boys themselves which I totally feel proud of myself!

Anyways moving of that topic, I love this novel dearly, I even lost some brain cells just to read the mtl that istg it decapitated my brain. I love how the... more>> MC kept thinking he was straight, when surely you could see him slowly becoming a cut sleeve for our beloved ML Gu kAifEnG!!!1!1

their interaction was funny, fluffy, cute, and filled with my shrill ugly laughters you could hear all the way through the globe. It’s sad though that the author got jailed for ten years just because she self published a bl novel.

beside that, thank you translators for translating such a wonderful novel! My fujoshi/rotten infested self has been satisfied View on bl has become better. <<less

Yeah, sorry, but... did this author seriously get thrown in prison for 10 years for writing and self publishing a yaoi? Chinaaaa... every time my opinion of that country improves a tiny bit, I hear something that lowers it twice over. There are so many stories from authors of that country that are so good, whether they contain homo-eroticism or not! I actually fooled myself into thinking the country as a whole wasn't as closed-minded as media had me believe, how stupid.

That may be irrelevant to the story, so... yeah,... more>> story's pretty good, you should give it a try...

By far, one of my favorite novels. There’s no heart-wrenching anger, no face-slapping. It’s just pure sweetness, all around. RanRan is so obliviously cute and Kaifeng is domineering and doting. You can’t help but cheer them on. I love this story so much I’ve read and reread it more times than I remember. The characters, the storyline, all of it.

This novel will melt your heart. Heart warming and an easy read. My tear ducts had even loosen in some few chapters.

In the beginning of the story MC and ML did not start out well but later when MC inherited the ancestors ability to see the dead it practically titled his common sense in a huge proportion. Later he learned that his hated rival the ML has a pure yang body that could suppress his yin yang ability, like a man finally seeing an oasis after being trapped in a... more>> desert for a long times, clung to the ML leaving behind his high strung pride.

MC is practically a little Tsundere, he might think himself a fierce Tiger but actually just a little cat waving his soft paws. And ML can’t help but hold him like a pearl in the palm of his hands. Doting on the MC like a good husband. <<less

It's fun and refreshing!

Definitely not a shounen-ai haha..

More than half of the story focused on the romance and relationship. The serious plots were like thrown here and there to balance.

... more>> ML is the typical perfect husband.

I would say that there weren't many significant obstacles, everything just went smoothly. Even where there was a hurdle, it was quickly solved, just like that.

There were some developments that I couldn't grasp, like why the ML just fell in love with the MC, considering the cold treatment he was receiving since Day 1. There were many misunderstandings at the ML's side, I think it's a bit unfair. This was brought up later near the end of the story, but yeah as I said everything just went smoothly it almost felt unrealistic.

Well, I still found it quite enjoyable for a fun, quick read :) <<less

It's quite good, MC is a little vain, a little annoying but very cute and very fun to watch him get teased! ML on the other hand is your typical cool golden boy, but very flirtatious with MC and I really like the way they explained why ML was so receptive to MC's perceived flirtations. It's very fun to watch the two interact and they have wonderful chemistry. Please be warned though if you're bad with secondhand embarrassment, you might have a hard time going through the beginning of... more>> this story. Once we got past the confession scene my enjoyment of the story shot through the roof!

reason as to why ML is receptive:

ML never truly disliked MC. Once MC was nicer it was game on because MC was ML's type from the get go!!

From the description, I was hesitant to read this novel; the concept seemed really far-fetched. But I really enjoyed the story - I attribute this to the quirky and likable characters. While not scary to read, I could imagine, if this became anime or live-action, the ghosts would be terrifying based on the descriptions. It's cute, not too heavy, and made me chuckle. If it is true that this author is in jail for expressing herself with such a sweet novel, it is truly heart-breaking and upsetting.

What happened to this author is so sad QAQ, she's honestly one of my favorites... best of luck to her.

As for the novel itself, I really like it! It's full of fluff, absolutely full of it.. both the MC and ML are super endearing and make for an adorable pair. It's very happy-go-lucky, totally recommend this to anyone that doesn't mind being made to eat dog food... continuously.

(to the review complaining about the prison sentence, I feel you.)

Tho if you have light stomach better not to read... No, just skip the gore-ish detail, KEEP READING. For myself I didn't find the desc scary/ frightening/ disgusting

But seriously....

I loooove stories where one party teases the other and the other party doesn't actually hate it and can't run away. Too adorable. I almost want to pity Gu Kaifeng, except he's enjoying the hell out of the situation haha

To be honest I'm a little afraid that the story will lose a lot of it's charm after their feelings become mutual.. Definitely the solving of ghost problems will become a core topic later, so I feel like this story will become entirely different (good or bad, I don't... more>> know).

Anyway, right now it's super cute, worth reading for those that like this genre!! <<less

So far so good.

Perfectly the stereotype BL characters, cant ask for more. Funny, entertaining.

You'll get the feeling 'ah youth....' I'm not old but kinda want to say 'where art thou my youth? XDD

... more>> Totally forgot that they're just 14yo, but it's nice to see the seme isnt that 'cold' as the usual adult seme LOL

All their characters are suitable for 14yo teenager, with lotsa hormons to keep up and confusing identity&character crisis. Thank goodness the author didnt make them adult, coz the uke is just too stupid to think, this is not a proble here but it's a problem for those reborn cliche story lmao.

I'll review more when it's complete/half way there. <<less

I fall in love with all the books translated by chrysanthemumgarden The translations are all really well done and they leave quirky commentaries at the end of each chapter that makes it feel like we're in a group chat (Be my friends (ෆ‿ෆ) )

A rare and riveting love story. It... more>> had such an unexpectedly sweet erot*c (in a very fluffy way) romance that left me with a huge smile on my face.

So much fluff, you will choke and die from diabetes. The MC and ML are so freaking adorable, there are some misunderstandings at the start but none of it is frustrating or annoying to read. I would 10/10 recommend this story to anyone, it’s just a lovely and easygoing book.
