At 18, Song Jianchu was diagnosed with a terminal illness and his billions of inheritance had no heir. Not wanting to leave the world so soon, he found the star he had been chasing after all his life and spoke arrogantly, “One billion per day, date me.”

The whole internet knew that the music industry’s top idol, Mu Ye, had a rich and flashy fanboy, and no one thought that the black-and-red demon king could successfully pursue a star. Until a video went viral all over the internet. In the video, the guy’s expression was cold and arrogant as he leaned against his luxury car and stuffed a black card into the man’s clothes, who then smiled and kissed him on the face.

Netizens climbed over each other to comment: “Wow, the demon king is amazing!!”

Mu Ye found a quirky and wealthy sugar daddy, who shamelessly showed off his body to him and catered to all of his tastes. He had originally intended to play video games with the kid, but ended up with a perfect boyfriend. Mu Ye fell deeply in love and was about to propose at his concert, when his boyfriend suddenly made it to the hot search list.

He was suddenly pulled into a group chat, where the top celebrities were discussing, with sadness, how to give their dying sugar daddy a grand funeral and compete for the C-spot to grab his last photo.

Mu Ye: …

After fulfilling all of his wishes, Song Jianchu signed the asset transfer agreement and was sketching out the guest list for the funeral of all the top stars on his couch, when he was suddenly picked up and put in an ambulance.

“Don’t be afraid, I’ve brought the best doctors for you.”

“?”

In his boyfriend’s gentle expression, there was a hint of coldness. “Baby, I never said we were breaking up. You’re not allowed to die early.”

4 star story, but I’m rating it about a 3 because of the translation. This book is one of their better translations, which is saying something. There are a lot of names switched, parts that make no sense, and pronouns mixed up.

The book itself is cute. A pleasant read that doesn’t have much drama. The ML is very clingy and possessive, while the MC is cute, aloof, and shy. The end 30 chapters were probably my favourite, with the ML showing absolute love and care towards MC.

A lighthearted story that attempts to explore some mature themes.

Spoiler

These include confronting terminal illness, psychological issues like depression (ml), deceit (hiding illness), resolving family hatred to turn a new leaf (cousin), straight man gay panic (side couple), and even potential divorce from domestic violence (another side couple). The main character has everything materially, but lacks physically and spiritually. He is facing the same illness that quickly took away his father and grandfather. His only remaining relatives hate him. His main work is investment although the story does not delve deeply into it. This is largely because he is aiming to find a goal for long term work with more meaning than money management. He isolates himself socially and his main hobbies are showing off his wealth online to piss off the Uncle who expedited the demise of his ill father and following the career of an idol who gave him warmth during the darkest part of his life. The ML does not recognize the MC as someone he met in person for a long time, but also emotionally relied on this young fan during his own struggles, although this is only mentioned in passing without much detail. He does still recognize his biggest fan despite not connecting the pink haired young adult to a young boy drenched in the rain.

Overall, it was a good read despite the overpowered background setting making the main cast a little hard to relate to very deeply. I do feel a little conflicted over how the author handled some of the side couples by handing out bad endings like Oprah giving away cars. Technically they are open endings, but the connotation is very negative and I am unsure what message the author was trying to send. I suppose they were trying to push a more realistic result to ground certain clichés, but it felt really out of place in an otherwise very unrealistic and extravagant setting full of exaggerated displays of love and sacrifice.

Spoiler

The domestic violence couple I kind of understand why they went the separation route in the sense that they seemed to have married under somewhat false pretenses? The violent shou mentions that they were tricked into the grave of marriage young and seems to truly resent this and resists intimacy with his husband a great deal. He mentions that he might have had many ex girlfriends if it weren't for his husband as well, implying he might not have started gay. He puts his husband in the hospital multiple times before and after intimacy. The author never discusses their past so it's a little hard to understand why they ever got into a relationship in the first place. A relationship with only one person putting in effort is bound to dissolve regardless of how much love there might have been at the beginning or end. Whether they continue will fully rely on if the shou misses his husband and regrets pushing him away or relishes in his sudden freedom. I think part of the reason for not exploring their past may be that there is no excuse for domestic violence so the reasons ultimately do not matter. I still wish the author had given a hint of the violent shous mental state when his husband actually left like he seemed to have wanted. 7-8 years together is a long time. My biggest unhappiness with this is the friend group's reaction. They are right that they can't interfere too much in someone else's relationship, but they don't even bother to ask after how either one is doing or see if the husband who left has anywhere to stay. It's very much 'someone else's problem' and 'watching the show' for an otherwise very close group of friends. Their attitude really undermines the seriousness of the married couples disputes and the very heavy fact that violence is not a solution.

The other couple was barely explored at all. Dude who was single and tortured by dog food the entire novel decides he would like to fall in love only to discover that his ideal target is in a relationship and it seems to be with someone who hates him. This misunderstanding is possible due to the fact that he actually is not close to his goddess at all. He plays games online with his enemy not aware of their identity, ultimately mistaking him as her and becoming determined to dig the wall. His enemy thinks they are in a relationship, but finds out that he has been mistaken for his sister. He attempts to chase his lover anyway and they have a few kisses. Straight man admits emotional attachment but can't accept a physical development between them and scorns the idea of attempting platonic love. It's pretty clear that this character is still a bit immature and part of his drive to find a relationship may have been to lose his v**ginity. The other man seems to accept this outcome despite his disappointment because he tries to imagine possible endings for them, but none are good.

Edit: untranslated novels in same universe, although I suspect all but ABO may be same universe

Why is First Love So Sweet is about a side couple who shows up in one of the variety show episodes and attends the protagonists wedding. Amnesia trope.

Boyfriend's Vinegar is Good/Boyfriend is the Best Kind of Vinegar (?) [Rebirth] 男朋友是醋精这种好事[重生] is another side couple that only shows up in the extras as a hired tutor. Seems to be about resolving misunderstandings and finding the true feelings underneath.

Could not find any mentions of the official side couples I mentioned before despite this to my dismay. Might be due to only reading the descriptions hehe <<less

Rating: 2/5

Dropping this for now. Might pick up again if I feel like it.

... more>> Review:

I feel a bit cheated, I expected the MC to be a bit more animated or outgoing from the summary, but he turned out to be a—cool, reserved guy? It would've been fine if I hadn't gone in with expectations I guess, his personality itself isn't terrible.

There's also tons of—actions and events that comes across as forced and the characters are all honestly a bit bland that I couldn't get attached to them.

To be specific, the characters feels 2D, like they have set characteristics but it doesn't go deeper than that.

The story also started off really slow and only picked up pace when MC, ML, and ML's friends in the circle went on a variety show together which was around chapters 16 to 20.

The fans' comment barrage really carried the story, without the fans my interest would've tanked even lower and it was already low in the first place.

Also, the translation's just edited MTL, and not an unnoticeable one at that. One of the characters is called Bai Xingyu, and an unedited portion calls him Brother Star when it should be Brother Xing. Another one was when the fans mentioned Pei Shinian and it was just "every year".

If you're going to just edit MTL, at least do it well.

A more honest summary:

At just 18 years of age, top student and famous big spender Song Jianchu finds himself diagnosed with terminal illness. Though unsurprised and prepared for the reality of his situation, Song Jianchu is still reluctant to die so soon.

And so on a drunken night out, he accidentally propositions his idol, the well-known musician Mu Ye. "Date me and I'll pay you one billion a day."

Mortified at first, especially when his idol teases him and refuses to let him forget their "deal", Song Jianchu eventually decides that leaving his wealth and inheritance to his idol is better than leaving it to his greedy relatives. <<less

A little entertaining at the beginning but becomes a little monotonous as the story progresses.

At first, it's cute when the ML teases MC but eventually it becomes repetitive and annoying. Whereas the MC is capable but is very silly whenever he's with ML.

My rating is between 3 to 4 stars.

It was a very sweet novel if I forget that MC is only 18 years old, and it's a relationship of coercion. The ML had control in the relation for most of the time even though MC was quite smart and strategic. MC couldn't hide his nativity and ignorance in human relationships at times, and ML took advantage of that.

The story had some new elements and made the novel enjoyable, however the common troupes were overused. The reality show was dragged in the last season just to introduce a new... more>> couple.

And the extras... I hated the Jiang Si and Pei Shinian couple, yes hated. Pei is straight through and through, but he's known to be a pushover from the very beginning of the story, a sweet, naive, rich 2nd generation. The extras even showed how strongly he reacted against Jiang Si's kiss, and wanted to retaliate. However, he changed his mind, because it would affect his career, give his father power over him, and of course, undeniable because he is a nice person. So he didn't retaliate against Jiang Si. I don't care how smart, or intelligent what-f*cking-ever Jiang Si is, him coming onto our Pei Shinian didn't sit well with me. I already tolerated enough coercion bullsh*t from the ML, and accepted it with a grain of salt because our MC reciprocated that love and affection. But with Pei Shinian, it was literally forcing a straight guy into bent. It's a BIG NO for me.

And the second couple, Lu Shen and Bai Xingyu have a violent relationship. Though their situation is almost the same as Mu Ye and Song Jiangchu, there should an explanation for their violent dynamics. Yes, there is love, and compromise, but the physical violence was uncomfortable to read. The extras could explain their relation dynamics to make readers understand whether they are on the same page of their relationship or not- not introduce a new couple that was mismatched as f*ck.

Anyway, it is good read sans the extras with Jiang Si and Pei Shinian. <<less

Dropped it by a star because what was THAT extra 😭? I honestly recommend you read this without going through the extras.

Pei Shinian and Director Jiang Si - I wouldn't know now if it was just affected by the translation work or it's the author itself 😭 but I'm upset with it because the author could've just included a getting together again arc foe Lu Sheng and Bai Xinyang but INSTEAD they had to focus on that dog ass internalized h*mophobia and attempted girlfriend-stealing going on with PSN

[collapse]

Like others I do agree the translation is a bit bad (a lot) but I can't fault them for me not knowing how to read it in the OG language. If you can get past it, the main couple's pairing is really sweet, if you like the "A fell first but B fell harder" concept, this is for you! 🥹 <<less

Side note: I looked at the reviews before I read this book, because I was curious as to why the rating dropped so fast loll. Thus my review may be biased against this book, and may have similar criticism because I cannot unsee it. Ah, I wish I didn’t read the reviews!! It was my fault, and I spoiled it for myself.

If you’re looking for a very easy and leisurely path to fame, fortune, love and everything else, this book is definitely for you. I’m not interested in this type... more>> of book, from the premise I thought it would be more angsty- but as of now, it is not. It’s very relaxing to read! I want to make a full review, but I am just too tired so this is it.

I found a few translation errors (wrong pronouns for characters) which put me off continuing to read this book too. <<less

It's a good book, very interesting till now. The mtl is also easy to follow but I think I'll wait for the translator to catch up so as to really enjoy the feels. Song Jianchu is really cute and Mu Ye is such a flirt.

Really looking firward to the rest of the book.

B-tier, but mostly low B-tier (3.2 star point)

To be honest, I'm not sure how to rate this one. It's not awful, it's not boring, but there are many problems I couldn't give it higher tier. The entertaining part is the interaction between the 2 main characters. Mu Ye and Song Jianchu are entertaining, both individual and as couple, which is actually very rare to happen in BL novels. Usually, one character stands out than the other. But in this novel, they're actually equal. Both equally powerful, both equally doting... more>> to each other, both equally love each other.

But there are also a lot of problems to the novel, and I'm not going to talk about the poor translation in the beginning (around 6-10 chapters) and then the many glaring inconsistencies throughout the entire novel. Despite that, I still find it very entertaining and enjoyable. The problems located in:

1. The side couples. Too many side couples. It's like this novel trying to say: Being gay is nothing. It feels so weird to see so many BL couples in the same novel. Maybe this is part of a universe, but since I only read this one, it feels weird to me. The extra side chapter with Pei Shinian and Jing Si really cut through me. Like, what is that ending? Maybe they would get their own story, but that extra side story is just cruel and unnecessary.

2. Confusing timelines. There are times when I'm confused with the timeline. Maybe it's due to the confusing translation, but there are times when I'm not even sure how much time had passed in the story.

3. Too OP couple. Both the leads are really really really OP. They're just too powerful. One is the most rich, and the other one is the most popular idol. It feels too redundant to me. <<less

Ok, first things first! This is the best romance story I've read where the sugar "daddy" is actually younger than the sugar "baby". Super funny how it all unfolds and I love how the romance progresses slowly. The diagnosed illness was super scary at first and had my heart in my throat up until it was resolved, but I'm very happy to say this story is up there with my top favourites!

Highly recommend for anyone looking for a slow sweet romance that builds up physical intimacy over time, with real... more>> beautiful feelings coming into play. Everything in this story is totally worth the read~

If you don't like a clingy wolf dog male lead and a cool and calm protagonist who's only shy around the male lead, this story is not for you.

p.s. In my opinion chapter 89 is the true end to the story. Although the rest tie up some loose ends, they're really just filler. Cute filler, but filler chapters all the same. <<less

Good translation. Thank you to the translator for their hardwork.

Story wise it's sonething you can read to pass the time. However if you're looking for a true arrogant, black-bellied, shameless MC? This is not it. And that's the reason why I'm only rating this novel a 3-star. MC 's character disappointed me with that.

But if you don't mind an MC who gets lead by the nose by unnamed side-characters then you can read this one. A break from those heavy danmei's in between.
