Han Dong works as an extra as well as a fortuneteller who foretells marriage fortunes extremely accurately.

As a straight man, he doesn’t hesitate to ruin his image in front of Mr. Golden — acting as a fool, a despicable man, making himself as annoying as possible because he is afraid that the other man will take a liking to him.

Did you think that this golden man would fall for him? You’re wrong.

PSA: The finished translation by Joell55 varies from 40-60% accuracy. Sometimes it's better than Google MTL but sometimes it's actually worse. So about half of what you're reading is not what the author wrote or intended.

I am absolutely not here to bash the new translation group or give them trouble. The translator should be appreciated for their efforts to edit the MTL. I just like this novel so much, I really wanted to clarify on the story's behalf since not everyone can read the original.

---
Novel review (from reading the... more>> raws) :

Such a good novel! Really well written and absolutely comedic. I found myself laughing aloud almost every chapter! The MC and ML are both extremely fun and interesting to read. It's a refreshingly different premise where the MC, while being intelligent and skillful, pretends to be an idiot with many bad habits in order to turn off the ML. But then he finds himself regretting it after he falls for the ML... many hilarious dialogue and antics ensue. The side characters are great foils for the MC as well.

I fully appreciate the MC not acting like a wilting flower and also taking his own initiative quite frequently. He definitely frustrates the hell out of the ML which is why this is so entertaining. It's not all comedy however, the MC does have a sensitive and vulnerable side. And it becomes pretty obvious that he cares a lot and is actually very big-hearted inside.

One of the things I really enjoyed was the way the author described the movies and plot.
Spoiler

The horror movie scripts were so good! Super well-written, to the point where I wish they were real movies. The layers reminded me of Inception a bit. All were so good, each consecutively knocked the previous one out of the water, which made the author's ability more impressive. Loved how everything linked together in the end too.

[collapse]

I love this book a lot but there are a couple issues...

Spoiler

We have typical CN treatment of force/r*pe etc. Felt bad for Yu Ming a lot in the beginning.

Next, everyone is gay for Han Dong. It's done for the humor and I didn't mind too much but, some people might not like it.

Also there are literally NO good female characters? The only one who doesn't get killed off/jailed is Han Dong's assistant, who is the constant butt of jokes because she is apparently unbearably ugly... yep.

Meanwhile, we have shitty dudes like Cai Peng who ended up well off and even more rich and famous, or Li Shang who despite being 'the Main Villain' got redeemed in the end because he rescued Han Dong. Don't get me wrong, main villain getting redeemed is awesome. It's just miles of difference between that and the novel's treatment of the women.

The story is quite interesting but the translation just ruins it for me. There are too many confusing parts where you just can't understand what's going on. I'm pretty sure I would like it if it was properly translated, but right now I just can't.

Premise of the novel sounded interesting but the translation was a bit too rough for me to read. I managed to get to CH 3 but by then it was too hard for me to focus on the actual story plot and instead, my focus was more on editing the grammar and sentences in my head.

If you guys don't mind rough translations, you may be able to enjoy this.

I don't know why I keep forgetting to rate this novel because it's absolutely fantastic. First off, it's downright hilarious. The MC is a ridiculous person in every sense of the word, and his interactions with the ML (who hates everything the MC stands for but can't help but be attracted to him) will leave you in tears. The plot is also very interesting- at least it's got its own unique flair even when matched against the dozens of other danmei novels/stories of the Actor/CEO combo. The author manages to... more>> craft the story really well; even during the "lulls" where you pretty much know what will happen, you still very much want to read it.

For me, this story is basically divided into 2 major arcs: the 1st goes from chapter 1 until the first big climax that results in
Spoiler

Wang Zhong Ding taking over as CEO rather than director or director rather than CEO (whichever one is higher).

[collapse]
The 2nd arc takes off from there and has a much less dramatic tone than the 1st, and also a bit less comedy. Tbh, they're not really "necessary" as things between the main characters seems to be solidly established by the end of arc 1, but it's still nice to watch the MCs interacting with each other and the other characters. It's sort of like reading 100 extra chapters after the novel ends- far from necessary, but gives you a nice wrap-up so you're not left imagining too much on your own.

Honestly, though, I have to say again that this story is crazy funny. Like laugh out loud funny. Like eye wateringly funny. I read the first 40 chapters during a slow day at work and had to leave my cube to go somewhere I could laugh on more than one occasion. Even when re-reading, I still teared up. It's a really good read, absolutely 5/5. <<less

This novel is hillarious, one of awesome novels by Chai Jidan. Intrigueing plot and easy going dialogues. I don't understand why there's no review about it yet. I am curious and waiting in excitement for every updates. I can't say more, but I recommend it to everyone. It's so much fun reading it. Thanks for the translators for bring this to me *international reader* keep the good work.

Can't really give a final judgement for the actual story because the translation is almost like mtl (still a bit better than mtl tho). I see great potential for the comedic relief but it's usually not laid out well. Fortunately, some parts are simple and easy to understand so the reader can still have a grasp of the story flow but I'm pretty sure a lot was lost in translations. It's a pity. I wish some other translation group release a better version.

Still giving 4 stars for the translator's effort.

An addictive story. It might also be because I had to MTL almost 300 chapters, but the MC is absolutely hilarious and ridiculous, which gives a frantically humorous atmosphere to the entire story. Especially after learning about his past, his optimism and cheerfulness is just a gift to us all.

Again, the MC's crazy antics are never-ending, and honestly his fortune-telling and superstition (which I have never believed in) made me start believing a little bit. Of course, there's still some drama involved, especially with his most prominent feature of sleepwalking... more>> and sleeptalking, an OP phenomenon that is explained much later in the story. Despite his outwardly crazy and ridiculous actions, the MC is truly perceptive and sincere at heart, and can sometimes show a really emotional and vulnerable side of himself when he doesn't know of it himself. The MC and ML interactions are adorable, and the romance builds quite slowly but satisfyingly. Especially hilarious was the juxtaposition in the first few chapters of the MC's qualities and the qualities that the ML hates the most. The ML is quite serious, protective, and possessive of the MC, but never to a disturbing extent. The same cannot be said of some of the MC's many other admirers, a couple of whom can get pretty crazy and obsessive about the MC's beautiful looks (lower body cough cough).

The MTL for this story was especially difficult, or rather half of it made perfect sense (for a somewhat veteran MTL reader, by necessity) and half of it made my brain hurt. Sadly the translation is quite slow, so MTL was the only solution for me to finish reading about the adorable couple. Will be checking out other works by this author. Would recommend if you aren't wary of reading the raws! <<less

It's hilarious. At first, I didn't want to read this story since I didn't like the image representing the novel. I'm so glad I tried it. It's so funny. Can't stop laughing.

So hard to read this novel at the polarbear site in mobile TvT..

Takes 10mins or so to load.. sometimes it freezes... I hope theres another place I could read this from. I reallyliked the summary but I couldnt get past chap 1 in the translator's site. It really tests my patience. Thank you polar tho for translating and goodluck on your exams. (Ill try if it works on laptop. XD this novel is a must read!!)

I have read this danmei novel in my country's language and I reaaaally recommend this one. It was fun to read and the ending was satisfying enough for me. Please give it a try and don't judge it from the cover. It is really cute.

I really wanted to read this as I lovvved advance bravely of the same author. And I have read almost all the other books of her as well. But the translation just put me off. I know the story must be very good, but the translation was not up to standards so I had to give up.

Edit:

just saw there’s a new translator. Maybe I’ll give them a try and update this later if they are doing a better job.

I love the premise, and the characters, I died laughing at Han dong's antics. How I wish it was fully and properly translated. Since it was unfortunately not I had to go through reading the only finished English translated version on Wattpad. It was understandable, you can get the gist at least.. but there were so many grammatical errors, my brain was mushed... I would definitely read it again once a proper translation has been done. Gotta say Leg supremacy is leading in this novel. 😝👯

All of Chai Jidan's... more>> novels are hilarious, and well written, what talent! I love Addicted, Counter Attack and Feng Mang, *chefs kiss* Advance bravely could have been better though. <<less

4.5/5

Really liked this novel. Loved our MC Han Dong and our lovely ML Mr. Wang, they're great together. I recommend reading this, it's so funny and I love the main couple and they're so cute together. Han Dong is a total nutcase, really loveable.

The novel is great but my only problem with it that it feels like some things are missing. There was too much focus put, by the author, on the love rivals for Wang, I feel like the author could have written more to add to the plot,... more>> for example Han Dong, the MC, never meets the ML's family formally, I feel like that was important.

A great read despite issues with translation, the novel is great. I will really miss the couple and their little son. <<less

Ratings need to rise so imma up it. Plot developments are okay. Story idea is good and the way it is shown (made me feel it to be more human or realistic (not the money but the industry and chara personalities. It's somewhat distinguishable compared to other entertainment related cnovels (like we're in an older era or someth)). Character developments were present even if there's a lot of mensao gongs. that stereotypical overbearing president. We got a large cast. The ending was a bit abrupt since I wanted to know... more>> more answers. Although the story is moving, the doggblood game especially the love rivals and old tricks being used are getting meh. Also the way that the industry isn't diversified and them collecting a lot of awards and felt more pro-china makes me think they can do more. Total is a 2/5

Shameless yet hardworking and a good person MC (Definitely love his character). Sometimes he is s*upid and sometimes knows what he's doing lol. He has good love with the ML (definitely not a perfect relationship but they each strive, especially in making us feel that no matter what happens, they'll still together forever. Truly dedicated to each other lol. Dog food is strong. No blackrooms and over the top angsts even if there are a lot of love rivals and dog blood dramas. MC seriously worked hard on his way to the top (and we were shown that. His 5 yrs struggle and then the game plan made by the ML in each work the MC will undergo. Also, the love drama between the MC and ML at the start lol. I was shocked that we we're shown that he was able to get the ml). There were also noticeable character developments from the cast (the antagonists, the supporting characs, the side couples, our ML, etc.) The focus on the love rivals was somewhat lengthy (seriously, until the end), thus we weren't able to see some of the deets we want. Making the ending somewhat abrupt - yes, each chapter's length isn't that long but actually felt a bit lacking with all the oomph we were given. I was shocked that I've suddenly reached the end. Nevertheless, the way everyone acted made me feel like they're human. There are def. grey areas and reasons and unreasonable people. The struggles in their shooting also. Moreover, Their endings (antagonists and other characs) were legit (revenge got served). I felt for mc's white eyed wolf friend qwq huhu... Some answers I wanted to know..

Spoiler

I wanted to know the coincidence with Mc's look with the grandma. I want MCs past exolored more and for him to learn the truth. I want MCs power explored more (sometimes I felt like he has plot armor or a golden finger regarding his skills and superpower). I want the plot development to be more coherent. I want Xixi's past explored and explain why he really looks and acts like the MC. I also wanna see their future. I want to also see mc's interaction with ml's family (we were only shown the side couple's side). Also, they forgot about the diagonal neighbor, I wanna know what'll happen to them. I also wanna know xixi's future - he has a dubious relationship with that classmate.

[collapse]

That's it for now. It has been a fun journey despite the mtl site since the chapter links are dead. Ah, in another note, I'm surprised that we're given beautiful legs instead of the usual beautiful face and/or body. Can't count how many times I've read everyone zeroing in his billion+ insured legs lol <<less

Rated a full score for all the laughs and helplessness that I felt about the one-man show 🤣

Adequate storyline, nice character development, i can practically still understand the gist of the story even when the translators/readers didn't know and it does get boring after all that high energy level of craziness so I kind of understand why hahaha I suggest stopping it after every high shiets/arcs and then continue reading it.

READ IT. 🥺

I dropped it but wait a minute. I give this novel (4.5)

I'm slightly dissapointed (but maybe it was my issue) but overall it was great.

I would def reccomend this specially for someone who likes bl with comedy. I remember laughing so hard that I can't breath.

So why 4.5?. I think it's bcs ive read so many bl that my standard become so high in characters and stories. I'm just kinda irrated at MC when he is s*upid kinda ignorant? in some situations. (Not those funny s*upid scene I... more>> mean in some other scene I find him annoying, but in the end I like his charact)

Spoiler

I highly hate Li shang too, that bit*h is good to you and what the f did u do? Bully him can you pls stop shitting and saying he will steal your lime light? Can you just become friends again and become both famous in the end

I think his character is just s*upid

[collapse]

For ML he's good.

And since I'm only in c194 I cannot judge it too much. Just read it and judge it yourself :))) <<less

I really like the plot but I there is some chapters that I think needs a bit more since the translation is a bit off somehow and I can't seem to understand some scenes but I still I love the story and the the translator for their effort in translating cause I'm really sure I would never find this golden story if they have not translated it.

I really love the part where they explain the films and movie to the point I imagine myself as acharacter in the novel watching together with the characters. These parts of the story really test my imagination!

In short I still recommend this story yo those who like humor! Your gonna love it LMAO? <<less
