Dying in the Male Lead’s Arms Every Time I Transmigrate


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

In the novel “Wealthy Ghost Young Master”, the male lead Shi Qi was ruthless. After Ning Meng died, she kept transmigrating into the people near to him.

The first time, when the male lead was 7 years old, she became his biased and malicious grandma.

The second time, when the male lead was 17 years old, she became his money-grubbing female desk mate.

The third time, when the male lead was 21 years old, she became his two-faced love rival.

The fourth time, she had completely transmigrated into the novel using her own body.


When Shi Qi was little, he carried a secret little diary with him where he recorded his grandma’s eccentricity.

Later on, he realized that the person who was good to him wasn’t his genuine grandma, but a stray ghost who had only possessed her body.

After he grew up, he also discovered that these eccentricities also appeared in the people around him……

-Pretentious female lead who has Yin Yang eyes but is afraid of ghosts x Black-hearted male lead who could ward ghosts and was a man of actions rather than words

This was... mediocre.

The premise sounded interesting with her being reborn as different people in the ML’s life but irl the execution was super lackluster.

Instead of building up the relationship between the two leads there was a huge emphasis on ghost catching which sucked because each of the ghost catching cases that popped up in their lives were so boring to follow and seemingly so irrelevant to their own lives.

Because of that when the ML supposedly falls for the FL you’re not sure why he does since it doesn’t seem like... more>> she’s done much to attract him or really anyone because she is so dull. Her main character trait is being nosy which gets her no where except involved with evil ghosts. The ML is cliche. He’s OP, rich, good looking, and cold to everyone except the FL.

Compared to other supernatural romance novels that feature ghosts like Believe It Or Not, I Already Caught You, Black Lotus Tactics Manual, Transmigrating to Before the Big Boss Blackened, or New Times, New Hell— which are so good they can’t get any better—this story was subpar.

I finished reading it because I kept hoping it would get better but it never does. <<less

Kinda funny someone says its abrupt, for your information shi qi starts noticing the MC since he was 7 he even started to have a feeling of rejection to the word grandson but still complies to it since he is only 7 (a kid) and at junior highschool he started to have a good feeling and closeness even teasing her about ghost and keeps stalking her (suddenly appearing behind the MC which is creepy 🤣) pampering her only gentle to her and giving food and the kiss on the forehead,... more>> also asking her original name at college he didn't want to let her go even thinking that the world gave her to him and only to him. The worst thing is his possessiveness and torturing those who hurt and killed the MC. The last life was the original appearance, the ML didn't want to let go of her thats why he tied her 🤧 and married her fearing she would leave him again.

As for the MC her feelings started to have feelings when they were junior high too, but as you have read she said "strange feelings." And not bothering with it. She also feels comfortable with the ML and starts to be dependent to him when it comes to ghost. Some of you might not notice that she is having a feelings since she kept throwing it at the back of her head. Not minding it what that feeling was. She needs a push, well they did push her since she would be jealous when someone approaches the ml. Also the people surrounding her calls her Mrs. Shi, madam, wife and so on also Shi Qi keeps protecting her and kisses her (who doesn't fall for that? Especially if that boy is handsome.)

Well I do sometimes feel you since its always about ghost and they didn't have so much scene where they show intimacy! Author! We want some PDA!!!! A DOG FOOD!!! We don't want to eat corpses and ghost WE ALSO WANT DOG FOOD! 😬😬😬😬 <<less

Here's the thing. I don't know why dense MCs are such a thing. I also don't know why this particular dense MC got on my nerves so much. But I literally couldn't keep reading anymore. I love the ML. But later, he kept developing in a cliche direction and the MC kept being such a silly dork that I couldn't stand it. Usually, I don't have many negative reviews and if I don't like it, I would just rate low and not review much unless it is particularly bad. I... more>> have very low standards and I can accept pretty much everything in these light novels. I'm not here to enrich my literature. I suspend the use of a major part of my brain when I read these books. Even then, I felt that this MC is too low in IQ.

Like, she's a scaredy cat but she just has to be curious about ghosts and go to dangerous places. In the second life, she knew she had only a year left to live but she made no backup plans when a month was left to her death date. I don't expect her to be clairvoyant but when knows she is going to a dangerous place, why can't she leave something for her mom in case something happens? She's with a 17 year old ML but she expects him to be omnipotent? Also, there was one time when she was downright callous and selfish.

ML has a fever. I suspect it is because he does something to help MC sleep better in winter when her body was filled with yin air (which she carelessly got when she 'accidentally' cut her finger on a dagger). The first thing MC says is he can get a fever too? Like, he is only human. What does she expect?! And then she feels sorry because she can't hold a warm hand anymore. The f*ck?! He has FEVER and she feels sorry he can't warm her up? I felt so disgusted with her then and there. I mean, she was older than him when she died so why does she behave like a 12 year old?


And then in the third life, he blatantly gives her a clue that he can see her and recognize her but she's still in denial. God, I really wanted to strangle her then. Again, what is even good about a s*upid, heartless person like her? Even if he announces that he remembers her in loudspeaker, she will probably find a way to deny it. I couldn't stand it after this latest attempt at silliness so I dropped it. I really liked the premise, the ML and the direction of the story. The MC literally ruined everything for me by existing. I don't expect her to be a queen. I expect her to have normal IQ. I expect her to at least have some basic common sense.

I know she has no experience being an elderly lady. However, when ML was 7 years old and opened his yin-yang eyes and was awkward because of seeing her 20-something self in a 70 year old body, she sent him physical and mental health books about the dangers of premature love. I mean, come on! She really believed that a 7 year old could have a premature love instead of being able to see her. Ok, I can understand if she believes that the system is more powerful and that ML not outing her is less likely in her view. But next life, he orders her favorite food, brings her melon seeds, keeps asking pointed questions and she's still oblivious. Fine. I let it go. In the third life, he told her don't you have my wechat? (His wechat was given to her in her second transmigration). She still didn't believe he recognized her! She would rather believe that she didn't get all the memories instead. WTF! Is her brain a decoration? How did she pass her exams and make a living as an orphan in her original life?


I don't know if she did more damage by existing or less. Yes, ML's life would have totally gone awry without her. She has boundless grace towards him by changing his life trajectory. I also liked her kindness and silliness and could overlook her jarring IQ because sometimes I just feel powerless towards her. But she died on MC at 7 years old. She died in his arms at 17. How much trauma does ML have to endure? She doesn't even think about it. She's so dense. She keeps saying she helped ML became a three-good young man but she ignores his mental state completely. Not once did she wonder about the psychological trauma people dying on him might have. So freaking heartless. The ML is excellent because he is just that damn strong. I don't think MC is the main reason he is so excellent. I do agree that his outlook is less gloomy and having a silly lover like her would probably suit him as he has too many heavy thoughts. However, the author really shouldn't expect me to relate to a woman like the MC. I'm a 20-something woman too. I simply cannot believe that a woman of this age could be this oblivious and dense.

Also, in the second life, after the MC died, the rest was tied up in such a haphazard way, it left me speechless. I mean, if you can have an entire arc about MC nosily digging up a case at school, why can't her death and the impact it has be delved deeper? It was so abruptly glossed over that I didn't even feel sad. It felt so cheap. Ugh. Anyway, I am going to come back to this when I'm less angry. If I finish this, I will update this review.

But, the translation is excellent. I feel it is such a pity because I really wanted to stick to reading just for the good translation. *Sigh* <<less

I have mixed feelings.

It's a 3 for me because of the ML.

... more>>

He confessed to her, great.

But the way he approached it afterwards made me feel really frustrated. The MC is someone who raised him for a time being and had seen him grow up. Although the MC did show signs of liking him, they had agreed that he would give her time to process her emotions. What did he do right after? Use the favor she asked of him to make them legally married without her knowledge or consent, and then drove her to a bridal place to buy a wedding dress. When she asked him about the married part on her documentation, he claimed that he "couldn't wait", and that "there is still a long time after marriage, so [she] can consider it slowly". The narration then went to say that divorce wasn't even an option...... So she didn't have an option to begin with?

It makes me only more infuriated when the author uses the fact that she does like him to make it seem like he's not just outright ignoring what she wants. He traumatized by her dying constantly? So what, trauma doesn't excuse it. I get that the experience was terrifying for him and I sympathize with that but that doesn't mean it's okay.


MC's a character that will just go along with anything, and really only relies on ML so I guess match made in heaven but it's not my cup of tea.

Shout-out to the translators though because they did a really great job. <<less

I like the premise, but like other people said: the ghost catching is boring. Feels random and irrelevant to the story. I am also guilty of skipping chunks of ghost catching to get to the actual relationship bits.

Its readable if you have run out of things to read

the worst example of unwelcome ghost hunting so far: ... more>>

the MC reincarnates into her last life & is caught by the ML. Hes got ptsd from her dying in his arms constantly so when she asks him to help her get an id (she wasnt "born" so shes an undocumented citizen), he makes her one and registers her as his wife at the same time. He then takes her to a boutique to buy clothes and... turns out its a wedding dress. The MC kinda dissosiates at this point. INSTEAD OF TALKING TO THE ML she plays with her phone and gets distracted by a watching vids of a grizzly unsolved murder case...

im just gonna say it... NO ONE CARES about random murder XYZ or is interested in the mystery of it... and neither should the MC. Shes not a detective... she gets no reward for chasing the supernatural... she just gets killed on loop. At this point shes LOOKING for ways to die for frgn dramas sake when she could be REACTING TO THIS WHOLE WEDDING THING RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER. As a reader I feel robbed of a scene & if I was the ML I would be PISSED that I could do something so over the top and STILL not have the MCs undivided attention

this novel feels emotionally constipated

MTL-ed the story and I think it's pretty alright! The premise and plot are interesting and it's cute to see ML's little thoughts at the end of the chapters. Though I had to skim some chapters when the spooks lost their flair.

imo the development of MC's feelings for ML are a bit odd.. Perhaps abrupt? 🤔 There's a huge focus on ghost catching over the romantic development of the couple—which is pretty interesting to read but I'd love to read more on how the MC fell in love

It's kind of strange because nothing stood out as that badly written to me?

The author was pretty good at building suspense and each short horror arc was somewhat interesting in its own way. But I couldn't get into the novel very much.

After some thought, I believe it's because the MC is so passive, all she does is observe the situation without doing anything about it and just waits for the ML to either rescue or resolve the situation.

And since the MC is a passive observer without any special powers, the... more>> reader also becomes a passive observer. The plots become less engrossing because the MC is never personally involved and can't do anything about the situation anyway.

Which leads us to the central focal point of the novel - the MC constantly running into ghost cases that she has no ability of resolving, not even in a "helpful Watson-to-Holmes" kind of way. She literally does nothing, not even in a side-kick way, but somehow gets deeply involved in every ghost case in the entire prefecture. Yep, probably not the best decision made by the author.

Sadly the story could have been a lot more interesting andha a lot of potential, but due to the author's decisions, it ended up falling flat.

Translation was very good and flowed very well. <<less

The concept is great. The ghost FL reincarnating into different people around him, how the story actually integrates different horror stories for each arc is actually new and unique.

In my opinion, it would have been a better experience if FL had a protective mechanism of sorts against ghosts.

... more>>

She had a system, but the author made a point to explain that it didn't help her other than giving her information. The helplessness of the FL was a bit bearable in her 'grandma' phase but it went downhill from the next arc onwards because she constantly needs ML saving her ass.

The author did mention somewhere along the story that she didn't intend to make her a strong FL who can bulldoze her way out of tough situations - so the FL's whole character got reduced to "I'm a ghost, but I'm scared of ghosts".

Then. Here's my problem.

If she's scared of ghosts, then don't go anywhere near them? That's common sense? But no? She likes to meddle in other people's supernatural affairs while she is completely incapable of doing anything herself to help without the ML's powers.

Sis was just courting death, like she would be the typical first character to die in every horror movie if she didn't have the ML going out of his way to protect her.

At some point I just got fed up with that. Every situation seems to a repeat of "FL sees ghost problems, FL decides to stick her hand into it, FL realises she f*cked up, ML saves the day".


That's my rant anyway. If you think you could bear with that, it will be a good read to pick up when you're bored.

Then again, this is based on what I've read so far. (And I've dropped this series, so I wouldn't know if the plot improved in later chapters. Take my review with a grain of salt.) <<less

It was okay. There's a bit of chemistry between the protagonists but like I haven't resolved the issue yet with the grandma grandson relationship hahahaha. I think the MC just accepted things, like ohh my heart is beating fast guess this is love. Haha.

Plot twist at the end was unexpected but rushed. Other cannon foddlers were just really pass by here. Wish the author delved into it more.

The horror parts were too much like it's explained in more detail the shouldve been the important aspects of the story.

Do you like damsels in distress? The MC's role is to be fridged without resistance. In fact, the role of nearly all the women in this story is to be fridged. There are two villanesses who fridge other women for the pettiest possible reasons before they are themselves fridged, and there are two competent women -- a servant and ... more>>

ML's missing mother

who get barely a paragraph worth of lines in the whole book, because we can't have anyone taking limelight away from the ML, can we. MC is useful TWICE in the story: once because she knew the plot in advance, and the other because someone arrives and tells her exactly what to do (which she just goes along with in complete bafflement). Apart from her cuteness and kindness, her only redeeming factor is that she sort of knows that she's s*upid.

The paranormal setting and the decent quality of translation was enough to keep me reading to the end. ML is competent but goes unattractively yandere with barely any development between the third and last arc. There is limited world building, and cooperative gaslighting is marketed to the reader as care and gentleness. I felt that the MC's thought process of s*upidity was very well fleshed out, however, which wouldn't have worked in any other genre -- she is literally s*upid to the point of suicide and no one would sympathise with her if this were a movie, but somehow her ridiculous logic actually worked to create an entertaining series of cause and effect with no real consequences since she'll just revive in a new body every time she dies. I do salute the author for the excellent portrayal of this adorable dumbass's inner world. The premise and the writing kept me reasonably happy when I wasn't agonising over the incredible nature of the heroine's brain. Three stars. <<less

Yea I just can't finish this anymore. I think this could be a solid 3 for some people. It was a 2 for me and then just the 3rd transmigration was so utterly mindnumbingly dumb that I gave up.

First, I don't find any of the supernatural cases interesting. Straight up. And I love supernatural. I don't know why the writing was so boring to me regarding them. I skimmed the cases all the time. They felt so boring. Idk why.

Second, the MC is naive typical delicate "soft" scared type. That's... more>> fine whatever. That's not a problem, but it's not a thumbs up. What would she be without the ml? Nothing nobody. Still dead. Anyways. My real issue was the 3rd transmigration.

Ok so why did you utilize a sexual orientation, lesbian, make the lesbian character live a bullied life, and then put the MC in it? Was it to create pity for the gays? Or what? Like what did you do for the lesbian character? Just get revenge? I guess? Idk what was the point of that. Why did you need that? Author. What was the end game with that? Did you utilize a sexual orientation as a plot device in order to make the ML realize his feelings ? I just wanna know why. I think the author didn't have any bad intentions but this is the second time they have written about sad lesbians in their stories. The last book they wrote also had sad lesbians. I don't understand.i just want to know what they were trying to do with that characters point for the story? I mean it's ok if you do justice to lesbians and fully have them represented for some point for them, but if it's just to somehow move your HETEROSEXUAL story plot then homie like why. But whatever I'm not offended. I'm just confused. Maybe the representation is alll that matters so it's ok. I Just didn't understand Why and that ruined the experience for me: like why did I had to read this bullying of this poor lesbian character??


Third, ok so I didn't really appreciate how the MC talked about abortion. I don't really know the circumstances of what stage the baby got aborted by another character, so it could be fair to say "the baby is gonna haunt u ooo-wooo u know ur sins u know what u did u evil women it was your choice" (paraphrasing and adding overdramatic ghost voice lol*) , but idk man was it a f*cking really young ass fetus? Then yea huhhh how is that baby gonna hang on u, with wat arms?? Whatever I'm just joking with that. But I'm not joking that I PERSONALLY didn't like being morally told abortions will cause the baby to haunt you aka bad on u in that chapter so. This is what made me give it 1 star ngl lmao. Conceptually I understood for the supernatural part but I was so smh when the MC said judgy ass words like "u know what you did" "it was your choice"... Smh. Again MY OPINION MY PREFERENCE MY POV YES MY CHOICE OF STARS lol <<less

Maybe 3&ahalf stars, the plot is good, just that sometimes the logic or flow of the story are not very smooth. MC can consider a mischievous little girl. Her way of thinking is abit childish but not too annoying. ML quite typical cold ceo type personality, only concern about MC. The horror story should be good but sometimes its just disjointed somewhere. And especially the aftermath of those’ villains “ or people or ghost, were not mentioned properly and the satisfaction of the whole plot diminished abit for me.
The... more>> system, is kinda, not the op type, only an encyclopaedia serve as explanation of things according, only good things is can warn MC if in danger and save her soul when she “ dies”. Its not a very bad read. Just for if you had nothing better to read can give it a go. Tq <<less

I knew and already prepared myself for the MC who's afraid of ghosts and is too much of a scaredy-cat, but goddamn, I can't take it anymore. Not only that, it's also partly because of the system that I decided to drop this because:

... more>>

It said that the eldest son of the grandma was stronger than the system and I'm like, 'bit*h WHAT.'

The reason I freaking couldn't believe it is because one is a human with a different kind of ying yang eyes compared to the real deal, while the other is a f*cking system who should be from a higher realm than them. AND EVEN IF ITS A NEWBIE SYSTEM, it should still be very competent. Otherwise, how the f*ck was it able to get the responsibility of getting a soul/MC as its host.

If the system said that the eldest son is stronger than it when it comes to feng shui matters and etc, then okay, I'll have no problem with that, since it once mentioned how it doesn't specialize with feng shui. BUT NAH. LIKE NO.

Cute ML but he grew too fast.

Crazy s*upid FL kind of giving second hand embarasment throughout the story.

I read it cuz the feng shui but guess what, barely mentioned better not having it in the tags. It does however have ghost and killers, so read it if you like mistery and time skips.

Disconnected. The chemistry between leads is thin as air and the spooks are anticlimactic.
Characters are bland to downright hateful later on. They barely have any progress and it was ML pushing her into a relationship, MC has no qualms about taking advantage time and time again of ML without having romantic feelings for him.
The fear factor in the story is pretty much at an all-time low. It's either in a controlled environment where there's no risk of harm or even if, it's happening to people that the reader... more>> has no particular strong bond towards. Even if it's the MC, we are already told she'd die a certain amount of times, and her lifespan is secured. No risks, no losses, no fear.
The supernatural/horror events are dragging the story out. All the random mess unrelated to romance are merely fillers or events that will lead up to her death which has already been spoilered by the synopsis itself. Conclusions of the arcs are either nonexistent or summarized in the most anticlimactic way. Does your novel character really have to die so many times without making an impact in the world or to the people around her over and over again for the ML to realize: "hey, I'm getting super insecure, wait I think I'm in love."?

Bad story, worse ending. Awful all in all. <<less

There's not really a lot of romance here. It's more like solving supernatural cases and how the FL tried to prevent the ML's blackening, but at the same time, she kept dying which will be explained towards the end of the novel.

It's an enjoyable novel. A little scary, but nicely written. Also, some of the time gaps was never explained what happened to the ML. He was certainly traumatized by the FL dying everytime.

3/5 stars for me

Literally agree with earlgreyt's review. I felt the exact same way about this novel.

While it was well-written and the ghostly sub-plots were interesting, I never quite got into any of the characters or the "romance" of it all. I just felt sort of ambivalent and nothing stood out or made me REALLLY want to read the next chapter. Which is a shame because I feel like the description gave a different impression, but I may have just overhyped it for me.

Tld;dr Not a bad read, but not... more>> a favourite I'd be revisiting anytime soon. <<less
