From infancy to maturity, what Ye Zhou dislikes the most was “two”.

The reasons were: he was ranked second at home, he had been forever ranked second at school, no matter how diligently he worked and tried, he couldn’t shake off that “second” curse. What was more exasperating was that, at University, not only was he ranked second, but even his appearance that he was proud of had to be classified as second best!

Why can’t I obtain the first place!

The eternal second will rise!

Then, Ye Zhou, after his vigorous efforts finally rises and the result was… the first became his boyfriend.

This is the story of a man who has been forced to be “second” and how he became the first, most popular.

MC's friends are absolutely ridiculous, yet funny in their own way. This novel is one of those "comedy of errors" situations where misunderstandings explode to next levels. Don't take things too seriously and enjoy the relationship between Shang Jin and Ye Zhou, with their ShangYe in a tow! They have healthy dynamics and everything is consensual! There are a few unrealistic parts, but it is a good read to escape into.

So... I finished this story already. I can't write a helping review for you to decide whether to read this or not. But I can help to write my own opinion while I read it?

At first, I was just trying to read anything that could take my interest — because I'll probably drop it after a few chapters, anyway. Too much damsel-in-distress or dependent shou in Chinese BL novels. And it drop a lot of stories from my list. I desided to reading some chapters and somehow hooked by the... more>> way the author writen the friendship between the ML and MC. It's really sweet, I can imagine how their relationship will be going even if it become platonic later — which of course, make me a little bit sour remembering that this is a BL story (because I rather it become platonic than destroying my expectation, really). But, fortunately, the way their relationship progressing did not dissapoint me. It's really balance, between the missunderstanding, the way each characters coped with their feeling, everything flow nicely.


A little bit dissapointed though that it still ending with a little bit depending shou and too superior gong. But at least it's not really severe. So I still can accept it.



And about the ending, if you count it from the 4th extra, it's already quite satisfactory, actually, eventhough it feel a little bit bland. You already got response from all the significant people about their relationship. There is no questions left. So you can rest assure.



Just... why there is only one smut scene!? Like... I know the story want to give me a domestic feeling. But if you only want to give me once, then don't bother give me anything, ah!

Uhuk, sorry. My bad.

This story is great!

I read the two reviews giving it three stars and thought the novel would be average. But in the end, it was a pleasant surprise.

The light and fluent prose and vivid ambiance make the read as easy as breathing while the intelligent and sharp humor brings out smiles to the readers' lips at every few lines.

... more>> However, the most remarkable merit of the novel is the impressive ability of the author to create and depict vivid characters.

The author took the two most classic gong and shou personalities in Danmei and turned them into real people to the point where you feel you could eventually meet them on the streets. Which is quite different from the utopic characters that are frequently present in novels and that could never exist outside of the fictional universe.

The powerful and indifferent male God became someone that actually has personal feelings and thoughts under the aloofness while the whimsical MC is not excessively naive and unreasonable.

Both are intelligent and smart and can hold a conversation while exchanging light jabs with each other, which makes watching their interaction very fun and pleasant.

It is true that their schoolmates are nosy and make a mess out of the misunderstanding at the beginning, but they rarely cross the line to a real invasion of personal space so it doesn't turn unpleasant or aggravating. It is, otherwise, realistic.

Furthermore, they are clearly not being mean or intruding only for their own amusement. They are truly trying to give a hand even if it is not needed or requested.

But, above all, the MC is someone with a strong mentality that can healthily and reasonably deal with their interference.

And, as a plus, the ML is not one of the arrogant kind that treats the MC harshly because he thinks the other is trying to curry favors. He observes and understands the situation and is mature enough to not make a mountain out of a molehill.

All in all, it is a great read that is perfectly capable of providing plenty of enjoyable moments.

Also, before I forget, the translation is top quality. :) <<less

This is such a cute story!

Our MC is so hilarious, a natural airhead and our ML is a god sent gorgeous iceberg and together they make a very funny combi!

But the most funny part is how their surrounding (the whole school actually) misunderstood them and always tried hard to create opportunities for them omg I can't stop laughing reading this one ???

The translator did a very good job delivering this story too, congratulations!

Fluffy, and surprisingly one of my favorite stories I've ever read. I even came back to reread only one specific part but by the time I looked up from the screen I had reread the entire thing!

Plot isn't quite unique, or even special. As the summary states everyone is convinced MC is in love with ML and the resulting commotion is a hilarious romcom set in modern day university. However I greatly appreciate the realistic bitterness that comes up from their family issues, and while the entire university is gunho... more>> about their relationship, society isn't so accepting (aka parents). However, the true standout is the characterization and the way the characters interact! Both MC and ML mesh very well together, and their ensemble of friends Are hilarious. From ML's kinda subtle hints that he likes MC, to the way the banter between even the friends and the main characters feel authentic and organic. The friends feel like an actual group of friends and not just background characters for the sake of it. My personal favorite scene being when one background character speaks like a wuxia novel and MC matches his way of speaking!

it's almost shocking how much I enjoyed this novel, I truly do suggest you give it a shot. <<less

Ahh, this is like balm for the soul~

Tired of revenge/face-slapping novels?

Tired of yandere/possessive/controlling/self-centered MLs?

This is a humorous and fluffy slice-of-life college romance that starts from a misunderstanding between the MC and ML who are both outstanding, handsome and intelligent students. The story takes us through the university life of the two students, to moving-out and coming-out, and attending grad school. The side characters (dorm mates) are absolutely precious and hilarious.

It's so cute that despite the MC being forever 'second place' in terms of studies/competitions, he's actually extremely friendly/outgoing/valued by his community, so his interpersonal skills can be said to definitely outshine the ML.


The relationship progression is a sweet slow-burn. The author builds up a true friendship and trust between the main characters, so it avoids over-used tropes like "the vinegar-bucket ML can't stand other people appreciating the MC." This is one of the few really positive relationships I've seen in CNovels where the two people in a relationship not only bring out the best in each other and wholeheartedly support each other, but also give each other space and mutual trust.


It's unfortunate but most CN books completely romanticize r*pe/obsession/stalking/stockholm syndrome/dependent personality disorder/possessiveness etc. So the romantic relationships portrayed tend to be extremely unrealistic as well as unhealthy.


Fantastic translation, the humor comes across on point. I would re-read!

Easy slice of life read about a campus couple. Has enough fluff and humor, but also will treat you to some heart-wrenching sad moments.

As many stories, this one starts with a misunderstanding. But later both MC and ML evolve genuine feelings towards each other, clearing the prejudice. I really like this part about it, because not everything starts off the bat.

Loved the more realistic take on different opinions about same s*x couples. While campus youngsters didn't really bother about it, since they knew their mates for quite some time they... more>> gave their blessings, family members didn't take it so well, who needed a long time to accept, who couldn't accept at all.

Two guys get harassed because guy A took a picture of guy B so he can exchange the photo for one of guy C. A likes C, but everyone is convinced that he likes B and they keep forcing them together.

They moved A's stuff into B's room. B was okay with it, but still.


Over time, the two do seem to become more comfortable with each other, but I can't bring myself to like it. Especially because of the cringeworthy comments you can find. It just isn't for me.

Oh God, really, actually i've read this story quite some time ago, and forgot to write a review or vote it. But now, when I scroll about my reading list I saw this and I think I should vote and write a review for this one, because it'd be a waste if such an amazing story not to be voted and such a waste if I didnt share the greatness of this story LOL.

It's damn hillarious, a comedy among comedy BL novel I think? LOL. The narration, the interaction, the... more>> thoughts of the character are amazingly funny. But still, despite the good laugh its offering, there's also some seriousness in it, a bit love problem, family drama, jealousy, and quarrel. But all of that are resolved in a great way. It's well balanced story. But still, the whole story is a troll and hillarious LOL, really I remember I couldnt stop laughing, giggling, and smacking my table when I read this one a while ago.

The character are lovables, whether it's MC, ML, or even secondary character. They have a 3D personality, means the character building are done pretty well. Once again, I find "a cool, male god, multi talented, soft hearted, but amazingly normal guy ML", that's not a black bellied, or overbearing CEO, and crazy possesive or rapist. Truly a given ahhhh. You know its really painful when a story you like somehow has a rapist and yandere ML righttt? And you dont have to worry about a poisonous female bit*h that BL novels usually have LOL, cause the female in here are normal, the normal female in the reality, not an exaggerated love rival scheming bit*h who hates the MC that BL novels usually portrayed.

The problem the MC facing are understandable, the love-hate realtionship at the beginning between MC and ML is understandable, the family issues also understandable. You know, its happening in reality. Some family really are abandoning their children for a foolish reason like wanting their child to be number one and comparing their child one after another, especially for Asian mom LOL. Believe me, some Asian mom really likes to compare their child to another child, LOL. It's one of the best BL/danmei novel with a modern theme i've read so far. Different from the general idea, when a modern BL novel usually have a dog blood drama, angsty, society perceptive, homophobic, and family refusal, that kind of drag of waaaay too long. This novel does has the issues about family acceptance, but it's not dragging too long and not way too dramatic, you know where MC and ML got separated because of the family. So, if you want a good read, a comedic one, and a good ending but with a proper plot, this is for you.

Give it a try, I guarantee you won't waste your time for nothing. <<less

what a read!! Both of our MC and ML are clear-headed and very smart, they have strong personality but somehow are compatible with each other.

the story of them progressing from (one-sided) enemies to friends, to finally falling in love with each other is very well written. Their couple dynamic is very warm and domestic that it makes you jealous. All the side characters are funny and essential in making the story more interesting and hilarious.

I love it a lot, it was a very nice read!

I've never wrote a review yet I'm so annoyed by this story extras and ending I feel I have to vent.

I was going to give it 3 stars thinking I shouldn't be strict because it's a slice of life and I shouldn't be harsh just because I don't like the genre but srsly just because it's a slice of life does it have to be SO VERY BORING !!!

its supposed to be the easy going kind of plot with no real conflict and overdose of drama and believe me I've... more>> read a lot great novels with no real complicated plot so it can be done. This one is just too boring with no passion except for the passion of defending gays right, and not even that was done nicely.

ppl keep saying it's fluffy but it's not really every single event that should have been romantic was written dryly


when confessing boy was that boring there wasn't much giving of the ML feelings before it. MC had the most s*upid reason for not understanding his feelings towards ml, and when they finally got together there wasn't that fluffy or passionate reaction I don't think it was realistic either

The event in which their friend kept misunderstanding their relationship was funny and realistic at first but afterward it just got s*upid I mean who would think he's smashing a car with a duster and who the h*ll cleans a car roof with a duster!! These are students of a high level university not KG kids.

their first time the fudge is with this sho he just had his first kiss recently and most likely was a top since his first love was apparently a bottom yet he was so accepting and fast to ask foe a second just cause he was loose and it's a waste just to do it once, , even if you want to think well yeah there are ppl like that but This is a novel couldn't the author just this once in this major event add little fluff and romantic feeling to it just leave realism to the family issues and the being gay thing, , humph

and finally when the ML proposed, , if that was even a proposal I mean what does the author want, , srsly I only got the feeling that they are way too serious and boring "sigh"


the extra were no extra it was the author making up for the loose end in the plot and not even a satisfying one, the last extra just made me explode that I took the time to write this review


the lady was starting to appeal to us when the author decided to show her as a proud b*ch only to afterward only confirm that she's going to be the sister in low to the brother who is a nice character, , ahdifjfiendk ?


htis is only talking about the romantic side didn't get to the writing style, , 1 star it is but if you like slice of life yaoi, , this might be to your liking <<less

It's a cute fluffy school romance comedy akin to Hana Kimi or any typical shoujo. It's full of misunderstandings that eventually brings the main protagonists together. The entire story is comfortable and well paced. The side characters are funny and full of personality. The ending is especially satisfying since it neatly wraps up all the storylines. The last 20 chapters is essentially an extended "happily ever after".

I rated this novel 4 stars instead of 5 since there's nothing new or unique about this novel. It's your classic story with all... more>> the tropes and stereotypes, but packaged nicely. The MC is insecure and tsun, the ML is confident and perfect. As usually, the ML is much smarter and better than the MC in almost every way (except the MC is better at cleaning?). The plot progresses as expected after the first chapter.

While this is not a must read, I would recommend reading this novel if you have the time. It's fluffy and cute but also easy to read. Oftentimes, the downside of reading BL novels is the poor writing, but this novel is entirely translated and of high quality. <<less

Very cute and fluffy. If you're looking for a nice quick read I would definitely recommend this novel. The progression of their romance is natural and both handle it like mature adults. MC and ML are equal and independent partners without any unnecessary drama.

Although it lacks the yaoi tag, this novel has one explicit scene.

I found it difficult to rate. This story was very sweet and cp is lovely!

However, at my first try 1y ago, I dropped after chapter 7 or so. Perhaps my mindset wasn't right back then to appreciate it fully, but those early chapters were too dull to my taste.

... more>> My 2nd try was 2 months ago. Again, put it on hold for same reason.

Finally, I managed to finish the 3rd time, and I read it in 1 day. Conclusion —-> it gets better the more you read!! Both ML and MC will grow on you.


- except for the fact that ML is another super good looking boy that is always 1st without studying... the rest feels super real. Both MC and ML are real characters that you can meet in real life. So, their love also feels so ordinarily good!! It is like watching a great movie drama and love it a lot whilst I'm normally not fond of this genre. But because it is so good, you can't help but love it

- their love is like the strawberries seedlings they grow, or an excellent glass of red wine... it has to slowly grow or ferment. The process also felt like that. You will cherish it more when you can finally taste it!

- It took a while before they get together, but as soon as they did, it goes fast from there! Also, s*x scene is satisfying. I wish there was more fluff but maybe if it had, the story felt less real. Another henpecked ML would be tooth rotting but that would be ooc and not realistic here. ML loves MC in a normal, mature, realistic way.


- The writing is slow pacing AND the romance is slow burn. Slow burn applies to both ML/MC... AND it is slice of life. Usually, I can't handle this kind of combination that almost 100% guarantees that it is too boring for me. Why it took me 3 attempts to finish this story. But I'm glad I did. It was worth it.

- See point above: If you are like me in this regard, be prepared that it may take till chapter 25 or so before you find charm in this story. And even then in the end... you might find it too ordinary in comparison to those highly exciting action packed stories, or those stories filled with dog blood and face slapping (which sometimes is just what you need depending on your mood) <<less

"He was driven out of the house yesterday and Shang Jin gave him a home today." — I read Everyone Thinks I Like Him out of boredom (actually it was because I was pretty hesitant to finish AYA) but nonetheless, this story made me feel elated. I've even come to such an extent where I fell in love with all of the side characters in this novel *sobs* Zhou Wendao, Liu Yuntian, Wen Renxu, Xu Yangjun, Zhan Xing, we single dogs shall meet again.

This story is cute but in my opinion isn’t for everyone. Don’t mean to be a downer but I started this novel empathizing too much with the protagonist and it completely ruined my experience. I’ve been in situations where I’m misunderstood in similar ways and no one would believe me, so reading this made me remember the feeling in those times and become as genuinely angry as the protag.

This was such a fun read. No major plot but also no angst or drama, just a sweet fluffy slice of life story about two college kids and their funny as hell roommates.

If you've read something nasty and it left a bad taste in your mouth or if you read an emotionally draining book and just need a break filled with sweet nothings then I recommend this. It will warm you up and get you ready for your next heartache (I'm talking to all you emotional masochists out there ??... more>> You know yourselves)

The family dynamics was a touchy topic (If you have siblings and narcissistic parents you'll know) but it didn't take up too much of the story-Probably less than a chapter-and I was okay with that. I came here for a good time and I got what I came for. 10/10 would recommend. <<less

fun and more humorous than I expected, especially after the rough start at the beginning. I wish i, too could worship at the Shang Ye alter before finals/ presentations/ dissertation. The test gods are something I could actually get behind.

as for the story, I love the friendship that develops between the two and the fact that both are fairly equal, though this being Chinese, they aren't presented as a reversible couple (I've never seen a reversible couple in Chinese BL so if you know of any, please recommend). As someone... more>> who very much dislikes when the MC is presented as a girl in everything but physical gender, (especially the s*upid, need to be rescued all the time types), I am grateful for stories like this where the MC is smart and retains his normal brain function even after getting together with the ML. It's also nice not to see an abusive, obsessive, domineering ML for a change. There is a little bit of angsty parent stuff but it was handled very well and I thought in the end it was fairly realistic because


my cousin is gay and his parents reacted like YZs and haven't spoken to him in five years while his husbands parents accepted them, so their situation was very similar to the MC and ML
