A lot of questionable moments supposed to be humorous. It's so obviously expected of us to find it funny I'm kind of annoyed to be honest.

she fails him at his audition because... he planed to use his future work as excuse to get away from doing her a favor he agreed only because he owes her due her said hidden motive??

And later it results that he can't afford dinner, she kindly gives him salad


But then again you don't quabble with webnovels (tho there's some unhealthy pardons to the FL only because she's a girl and she's pretty).

It is in fairness rather enjoyable romcom, but not to be taken seriously <<less

This is a gem, and I'm surprised there are low ratings (without reviews, of course). The story itself has a lot of memes and SNS gossip expected of a modern setting. The translator does well at explaining things for an English speaking audience.

The development of the main characters' relationship is shockingly good. They're a little immature at the beginning, but as much as they may bicker, their begrudging friendship blossoms in a pretty natural way??? Their banter itself is pretty funny, and overall neither the FL nor the ML do... more>> anything that crosses the line that much (minus one petty thing at the beginning on FL's part, but it does get the plot moving and she slowly makes up for it by supporting ML later on).

FL is not a pushover, but she isn't some iron woman with no feelings either. She believes that women should be self-reliant, and instead of bemoaning her tragedies forever, she'll pick herself up and come up with a plan.

ML's character arc is discovering independence. He's stubborn and a bit sheltered/tsundere, but he means well and you can really see how he puts effort into solving his own problems rather than just throwing money at it like MLs from other novels. I find him very charming.

As someone who's trudged through bad and good bickering couple stories, as well as too many modern/showbiz/social media stories, I'm thoroughly enjoying this. <<less

What a happy ride~~~! At first I'm annoyed by their always bickering nature but then I'm enjoying this story so much.

MC is really an independent woman but not other female MC who left out their partner, this one walk together with him. That's why I love this story!

Pros :

Its fun watching them bicker with eachother. The chemistry is nice to see. They can be playful towards eachother but nothing that crosses the line. They look like tsunderes to me.

... more>>

right from the first meeting they already bicker. Second meeting they got together to berate other people. Poisonous mouth is the common thing that they have. They adopted a dog and a cat. Then they got married and had a son.


The MC is a boss?? Kinda. ML is a 18th tier actor. We don't see this type of pairing often.

Cons :

It's only 50 chapters so I don't really expect much but nevertheless it's a nice read. <<less

1st impression: so far Shu is kind of annoying with her interaction with Yu, but thats about it. Shes a good person with good morals. Nothing yet for Yu except he's doing his best for his career LOL
