The last translation was taken off and the new translator is purely mtl so read at your own risk.

It's just a funny little story that's good when you want something silly to read. Not very complicated or boring.

I came here after reading 帝王攻略 (The Emperor's Strategy), which is the 4th novel set in this universe. Conversely, this is the author's first novel, and it shows- 帝王 demonstrated a maturity in writing by maintaining an excellent balance between hilarity and heartbreak, and this novel is in contrast heavily, heavily skewed towards the former. Nevertheless the humour- though primarily very slapstick, occasionally downright cringy, and sometimes repetitive, with an over-reliance on the same few jokes- ultimately made this a very fun, lighthearted read, which I breezed through in a... more>> few days.

Humour is probably this novel's greatest selling point, though if you're not used to it at first the style can be a bit of a turn-off (I read the raws- so. many. exclamation marks). I confess- it took me about 20 chapters to really get into it, and prior to that I had half a mind to drop it, but I'm really glad I didn't, and I urge everyone else giving this novel a shot to give it that same chance.

The star couple of this novel is Qin Shaoyu and Shen Qianling, the latter having transmigrated from modern society into the novel's feudal setting after an unfortunate accident, and deeply regrets his whole life after finding out that his body's previous occupant was engaged... to a man. (That's in the blurb, by the way, not a spoiler.) This couple is basically a bona fide idiot pairing- no other way to describe it. The mischief they- and their equally nonsensical bodyguards- manage to get up to- keep the book lively, such that I never really felt it was getting too draggy at any point. That aside, I feel it important to highlight that the author did an amazing job of portraying the gradual evolution of their attitudes towards each other and the nature of their relationship from barely tolerating each other at the start to being madly in love at the end. Both in 帝王 and here, she managed to skillfully pen these developments in a very organic manner that one scarcely sees in BL novels, where the change of heart is often jarring and unnatural.

Spoiler

Unlike 帝王 which heavily centred on one couple alone, in this book we are also introduced to a second couple along the way, one of whom mega-tsunderes the other all the way to their wedding night, so that's something to look forward to as well.

[collapse]

TLDR: don't take this book seriously. This book doesn't take itself seriously. But if you're looking for something lighthearted, heartwarming, and laugh out loud funny- this is it for you. <<less

It is quite irritating. The so called humor is quite abusive. Those pranks, misunderstanding and forceful situations are not fun at all. even public opinion pressure is used too. Reading from MC pov, it feels suffocating.

The quarrelling type couple is actually kinda fun. Yet that's not when one side is always at disadvantage.... And the side of pov too : (

The first prank could actually be funny if no other annoying so-called- humor got mixed on the way and if the MC finds out after only 2 chapters or so... more>> of hilariousness

I think it should get a little better moving on as MC already knows ML bullying side and shouldn't be as passive. Other reviews did tell that the story is better later on but I am not sure if I will continue. <<less

i totally agree with the reviewer above, the best selling point of this novel is its humor and comedy! you don't really need much brain cells to process the plot, LOL, just read it, and succumb to the comedy and sweet romance the idiotic couple in this story offer. if you think that the MC here is too weak easily fainting then I want you to imagine yourself, as a pampered rich superstar in modern life, then suddenly got thrown out in a harsh life where muscle do the talk... more>> rather than skills and brain. what can you do?? imagine yourself in this modern life who always took car, bus, train etc. to go everywhere, rarely working out, and suddenly thrown out to do sword fight. what can you do??? absolutely nothing, right? LOL. so I understand the weak MC here and the comedy it offers with how weak he is.

i really want the translator to pick up this gem again... don't abandon it please <<less

I just started but I REALLY dislike the characters, especially the ML rn. The "funny cute bullying/misunderstandings/pranks" aren't funny and cute to me at all. It's just as another reviewer Readd99 pointed out, it's irritating and suffocating. Especially since we're reading from the MC's pov.

I am also very protective over the MCs I read about and can't stand someone bullying them like this. I'm talking about this sort of bullying that supposed to be funny (but it's really not)

I also find it VERY annoying when in novels there's a... more>> huge misunderstanding/"prank" (on MC) and it doesn't get resolved for at least 20 chapters or something. It. Is. Not. Funny. It's irritating. The "we already copulated and you're pregnant" prank ML pulled on MC should have been just as quickly resolved. Maybe even in the same chapter.

The MC is also kinda sus to me since he's supposed to be a great actor who got a reward but he isn't exactly acting like it? Even so, that doesn't bother me that much because I don't have any problems with a main character like that. What I DO have a problem is how people constantly have misunderstandings about him and how they act towards him (ML I'm looking at you....)

I never liked those sorts of MLs who "bully the MC so much because they love them". Ew, no. Grow up and STOP. It's fine if there's a prank here or there, MUTUALLY, since I think every couple needs a few of those relaxing playful moments. But this is just straight up emotional abuse. If I was the MC, and the ML constantly bullied and pranked me like that I would definitely feel uncomfortable and full of grievences. I would feel like he doesn't love me since he's basically not showing any respect nor love to me. I wouldn't be able to trust him at all. And I would also feel insecure and irritated because nobody is taking me seriously and they don't trust me when I try to clear out the misunderstanding. So many bottled up feelings I would probably simply start crying (yes, I'm a crybaby and I can't control it. I dislike that about myself too :/)

Many people said it gets better but honestly I don't wanna sit through all that. Unless you tell me the exact chapter it gets better or the exact chapter from where the ML starts respecting and loving the MC PROPERLY, then I'm not reading it. It just makes me too uncomfortable and annoyed. <<less

I'm not liking the MC very much. Even for someone with "memory loss" he a bit too idiotic. And the MC makes a much better girl then me, too delicate and too much fainting and pampering. It was ok for a chapter or two but now its getting irritating. The MLs manipulation was kind of funny though.

I dropped this novel a bit early tho, if you want some light reading then maybe this is for you. I don't really like the MC very much, he's supposed to be a veteran actor, I mean, I get it if he was confused at first with his situation. But overtime he's like degrading himself into a middle schooler mentality (?) Like he fainted and cried a lot. Maybe that's just how he cope with his situation but I don't really want to read the story with this kind of... more>> MC. Maybe there'll be some character development with him later but idk, I don't have enough patience to wait XD anyway so far, I like the ML character, in my opinion MC should treat him better tho. <<less

This novel is very good! I love all the novels by this author. MC and ML are very annoying at times, but I like them both together. This is the first book of a series of 4 interconnected novels.
For those who don't like this couple, I recommend not reading the second book, since the romance is about the two again, but MC and ML are married.
Anyway, it's really a light story with a lot of humor.

A step above the rest. The dialogue is absolutely heavenly, with every few sentences unique and complimentary to the characters characteristics making for some very memorable moments (... more>>
Spoiler

emphasizing Lady Shen's shamelessness, for example

[collapse]
). The humor is great and suffuses the story with a very upbeat feeling.

Fortunately, despite being satire it doesn't hesitate in comparing serious topics such as the progression of technology, home sickness and politics
Spoiler

such as the second young master's mother threatening suicide to be seen as a separate party from her seemingly unfilial son

[collapse]
.

Characterization is consistent but still allows good progression of character development. The romance is a slow burn but it's very rewarding to see the MC and ML progress from barely tolerating each other, to treating each other affectionately.

The plot has the weakest presence, but there are many important plot points present that arrest the reader's attention as well as creates a sense of mystery to the jovial story
Spoiler

such as the secret behind MC's transmigration, whether or not Lady Shen knew she was poisoning her own son, his relationship to nine tailed demon foxes and his relationship with a few choice individuals such as the Demon Sect Leader and even the ML himself

[collapse]
.

A star was deducted, though due to the seemingly unhealthy portrayal of the relationship between ML Yu and MC Ling. Though no r*pe appears,
Spoiler

Yu insists on mol*sting the, as of this chapter, straight MC despite being firmly rejected, even using such tactics to further his goals in enraging his political opponents.

[collapse]

The MC is luckily not a holy White Lotus type to take such abuse lying down and compromise is shown to be an important part of their relationship, but I personally feel uncomfortable seeing a grown man being being forced to break down because he was sexually abused in front of his buddies (though of course, it was also mentioned this was due to *certain external factors).

Not to mention, the ML is rarely reflective of his actions, and continues to do it despite MC's clear unwillingness. As much as I love this story, consent is a thing and I for one don't find these kind of Stockholm syndrome-esque, 'whittling down the will' pseudo romance stories very appealing especially when the aggrieved party, despite his struggles, has no genuine way to stand up for himself.

To answer this review:

""It is quite irritating. The so called humor is quite abusive. Those pranks, misunderstanding and forceful situations are not fun at all. even public opinion pressure is used too. Reading from MC pov, it feels suffocating.

The quarrelling type couple is actually kinda fun. Yet that's not when one side is always at disadvantage.... And the side of pov too : (

I think it should get a little better moving on as MC already knows ML bullying side and shouldn't be as passive. Other reviews did tell that the story is better later on but I am not sure if I will continue.""

The author does address the MC's stress about the situation and how het gets through it with the help of others, it's not only for comedy, it does contribute toward the story.

The story is mostly comedy but the seriousness undertone is great too, it's not really just brain-rotting comedy, you won't regret reading this. Most of people I know enjoy the other books about other couple in this series more (like Di Wang), but to me, this couple will forever by my most favorite. <<less

MC: comedic, nurturing, charismatic, damsel-in-distress, and loyal

ML: swag, charismatic, skillful, doting, horn dog, and accommodating

Antagonists: forgetful

side character interactions: 7/10

story: 8/10

world building: 9/10

Chemistry: 10/10

overall: entertaining read, best thing is the couple’s interaction, second couple gets some screen time too, some plot holes that leaves room for a sequel

Everyone, I recommend you to read this! This is actually great!

you know why MC keeps fainting, crying, or etc, of course, who in the transmigration world is not going to do that? Like you are not adapted to the new world you've transmigrate, everyone of his family is good at acting, Just try to understand his feeling, guys, even ML tried to, til he's succeed. But tbh, that's normal for a transmigrator like MC.

... more>>
Spoiler

Indeed, MC tried to annul his marriage with ML, until he knows the truth why he's engage with ML (due to the cold poison in his body)

[collapse]
Spoiler

You know what's more cute? ML keep teasing MC, until MC told him 'I'm going to have my divorce with you!' (Yeah this is not the original line, but the divorce thing is real)

[collapse]

Spoiler

You won't know MC's feelings for ML until MC reveal his jealous of the vix*n XD LMAO that was cute of him btw

[collapse]

Spoiler

Side CP: MC's Eldest Brother, Shen Qian Feng (Gong) and ML's friend, named Jin (Shou) (??? I forgot his name, sorry Xd)

Honestly surprised with how much I enjoyed this novel so far and I can't help but laugh at this bickering couple.

MC and ML have great chemistry and you can just see how they came to fall in love with one another. Usually I find weak MCs difficult to read about, however in this novel it just adds to the humour and complements well with the personality of the ML and I don't find him annoying at all.

ML knows that MC is keeping a secret from him, but I like that... more>> he doesn't try to pressure him into saying anything and completely trusts him.

In regards to the possibility of returning to his world

Spoiler

I look forward to seeing how the drama will unfold. Will he choose to stay or go, and will the ML feel betrayed knowing he unwillingly collected the items to return home for the MC? Dun dun

[collapse]

The MC does seem a little static at the moment and I hope in the further chapters he becomes stronger and stronger. <<less

Light story with more on humour. MC & ML is a perfect blend together.. Push & pull romance strategy. Side characters are funny too! Wish the translations are more regular.. And hope it wont be dropped!
