Great concept plot but author writing is mediocre for me. It doesn't touch on the plot concept much. There's very little of the freshness perspectives of how ancient people come to modern will feel and that's only when Anyu in ghost state and that too wasn't elaborate just skim over. It focus more on being an artist or all those dirty scheme n plot behind the scene by other jealous people. Why bother writing about ancient person come to modern time then? Just go write about modern person who know... more>> a little bit of qigong instead.

Also the emotional outburst wasn't written well. One second the brother hating him n mocking him as illegitimate child then next he's suddenly being an affectionate brother n a little bit of controlling when before he don't care.

And romance is lacking too. ML in the beginning is scum there should be a wife crematorium chasing !! Same with Nuoxi n the brother, the brother such a scum but Nuoxi forgive him easily. But the smut is good tho. That's a surprise I don't c any smut tag here.

I read from chrysanthemums garden thank you so much excellent translation as always ❤️

I'd recommend reading There's a beauty (ancient wear modern) for a similar ancient person transmigrating into modern time but that's a much much much better written story by author! <<less

The story revolves around the main couple [MC] Yang Anyu (...the transmigrated bodyguard)...and [ML] Yi Chenyan.

About the MC...

... more>>

MC died by blocking a sword to protect his general (... the ancient Yi Chenyan).

Then he transmigrated to the body of the modern Yang Anyu after the latter met with a car accident.

Feeling that the ML looks the same as his general, MC tried to get close to him. It was difficult at first because the original body has bad character, but later on, the ML noticed his change and gradually warmed up.

MC has a bright personality. One would adore how he shows his intimacy towards the ML.


About the ML...


ML frequently dreams of a young soldier. In the dream, whenever he tries to reach for him, the young soldier turns bloody. (... it is reasonable to say that he is the reincarnation of the ancient general).

ML debuted as a singer in the entertainment world, but something happened and ML couldn't sing anymore. So, he tried acting instead which led him to stardom.

ML married the original owner of MC's body for a reason. They were married for 6 months when the MC transmigrated.

ML's past was grim - his parents died, a friend betrayed him, and the man he treated like a father lied to him. These caused him to not trust other people again... until he met MC.


The pacing of the story was just right. It was not rushed nor was it draggy.

The relationship of the main couple is light, fluffy, sweet, and very intimate!

They support each other and are very direct with their feelings. So, there were no major misunderstandings.

The side couples are definitely a big plus!

    • MC's big brother && MC's singer friend
    • MC's broker/manager && MC's personal bodyguard
There are other side couples that were briefly mentioned but the 2 pairs above are the main side couples.

The antagonists were all related to ML's past and were dealt with briefly towards the end of the story.

There's a twist regarding the modern MC (original) and MC's past. The twist was actually unexpected! I didn't see it coming while reading the raw chapters. Good job, author!

The bottom line is... you shouldn't miss this!!!


There's an extra chapter in the novel covering the story of the modern Yang Anyu. He transmigrated to the ancient times and eventually, had his own happy ending.

First of all, I would like to state that this story is pretty great. I loved most of it, but I can't rate higher than a three, because some parts of it seem a little iffy to me.

... more>>

For example, Yi Chenyan looks and has the same name as the old general in ancient times, so it's most likely he's a reincarnation. But for Yang Anyu, even though the modern and the one in ancient times share names and looks, they are two different souls, not a reincarnation. I know there aren't necessarily rules for this kind of thing, but it still got me thinking. And, the MC also gets the memories of the original, but his soul has definitely left. I know it's not an exact science or anything, but still.


Also, I feel really sorry for the Yang Anyu in the modern times. When others figure out he's gone, no one even worries about him, he could be dead and the ML and the MC's brother don't even care, because they prefer the current one. It... pretty much stops me from completely loving this story.

I also feel like these two got off way too easily. The MC's bro didn't like the original much, and was still a bit mean to the current one a few times, so their current relationship bothers me, because I didn't see any apologizing (even if he suspeted his bro had changed. It didn't change how he treated his half brother, who'd lost his mom and went under a personality change because of it. I feel the original MC is really pitiful)

Same with the ML. MC should give him a harder time, not fall for him so easily.


I read in a spoiler forum that MC asked ML for a divorce. Sadly, this was after he fell for the ML, and after the ML's feelings changed, but I wish it would have happened, and the MC would have let the ML chase him, even a little, he gives in too damn quickly.


About the original MC...


Luckily, there's an extra in the story where the original MC went to the ancient times and found his HE. I'll probably wait for the complete translation and read that first before I go back and read the whole story, MTL is easy to understand but leaves much to be desired.


Anyway, besides all that, the story is pretty great, and the MTL is easy enough to read, but I'll just wait for the translation to be done and hope by the time I get back to it, my problems with this story would have died by then. I feel, between this and Stop Bothering Me, Emperor,

the MC in that story was smarter and got by without the cheat of getting all the original's memories at once, and that was a true reincarnation for both MC and ML (or transmigration, not sure really, since the originals didn't have much personality until the MC and ML souls transferred.)


I may or may not read more of this story soon, and may or may not edit this review later, but for now it stays. <<less

Seriously I want to force my self to keep reading but my chest felt way too stuffy to continue. Like? It's good, the plot is good and all but what's with this disappointing relationship of the MC and ML? Seriously this is like reading about dog being neglected but the dog thinks it's ok cause the ML is his male god. The MC's continuous "cheerfulness" personality after being ignored/avoided/neglected by these characters such as ML and Older Brother is seriously way over stuffy. Now I'm sure that in the future... more>> things will get better in the upcoming chapters but it's really hard to keep reading ab*se

I'm dissatisfied with the ML, YCY's character in the beginning of this novel. Now that YAY transmigrated, they will end up all lovey-dovey I guess, but what about what happened between the ML and the original owner before YAY showed up? YCY married this kid because his face look like somebody he dreamed about but he despises the original owner's personality. Isn't that just kind of messed up? Playing with people's feelings and hurting them based on some intangible dream they don't even know means anything?YCY married the original owner... more>> and then proceeded to just completely disdain and ignore him even though he knows the original owner was in love with him. I can't help thinking, isn't this guy such a jerk? It makes it hard to enjoy reading this novel and I just find it hard to understand why the author presented the beginning of the story and character interactions and this way <<less

I don't have a reason for my 1 star review except that reading the novel made me mad.

I read till 10 chapters and the behaviour of ML towards the original host was absolutely horrible. He married him cause he resembled someone in his dreams and memories (the MC actually) ... more>>

The MC and original host have same body and face but are two different souls. ML married original host cause he resembles MC (who ML met in previous life) but the original host is obviously a different soul. So he just ignores original host after marrying him


Original host actually loved ML but even after marrying him ML treated original host like air. Even the host's brother doesn't really love him. He got into an accident because he was so sad that ML didn't love him and so drunk drived (I think?). And no one visited him when he was lying half dead in the hospital? How absolutely disgusting does the ML have to be?? Like you literally married the guy can you he a bit decent?

And after the accident, he dies and MC takes over his body. So after that suddenly everyone loves MC and he gets his happy ending.

But I couldn't read on cause I just felt so bad for the original host. The ML behaved like an A grade scum with him. My heart bled for the original host. Poor guy was so depressed and then his whole life, his whole body is take over by someone else.

So I dropped the novel then and there and read the extra which contains a happy ending for the original host. Tbh I would have liked to read a longer version of that actually. <<less

This story was so good that I had to create an account to let you guys know. After finishing the 33 translated chapter, I had to MTL the rest but it was worth it. I'm definitely going to reread it as the translated chapters come out. (https://www. Danmei. La/book/5/5386/)

It's sweet, fluffy, just enough angst to move the plot along, and the author is legitimately one of the best smut writer I've come across since I started reading Chinese novels a few months ago and I've consumed A LOT of... more>> literature lol.

I think the biggest plus about this book is their relationship. Once it starts, they're both fully committed. I feel like often times in these BL novels-- first it takes forever for the men to wrap their minds up about liking another man (which is understandable) and then its another drag to get to them sleeping together. Then it always feel like the bottom has to coerced every time the top wants s*x and that it somehow makes them less of a man to be a bottom.

And refreshingly there's none of that in this story. As soon as they're in a relationship, they are both free with their affections, their love, and intimacy. Yang Anyu (the bottom) wants Yi Chenyan (the top) as much as Yi Chenyan wants him and doesn't hide it. No one feels like they're being forced into a relationship.

They are in love supportive husbands fully aware of each other's secrets and faults and I wish I could have kept reading about their world forever. <<less

When I first started reading it, I thought I would give it 4 stars cause its pretty cliche, only thing unique would be the original owner's charecter.... You can't judge it.

Even reading till almost middle, I didn't change my mind after all I started reading it as a fluff novel...

... more>> BUT

Holy cow after half the trend changed... Everything became clear. Legit nerve wrecking curiosity (I couldn't judge it from my God's perspective) and the question "Why"... Sone charecters I hated, after I knew there reason, I couldn't anymore.

You can't lebel one as true villain only one person would may be become the 'villain'.

All of them had legit reasons for their behaviour. Hell on first few chs I hated how MC's family treated him... But after reading I think I would do the same in if I was in their place.

What I love most is author's ability to surprise me... And this definitely was a pleasant surprise. Although the ending was anticlimatic, climax happens some chapter before ending lol.

The novel is pretty BL universe type... There are number of side couples. Extras has their short story.

Certainly deserve 5 stars. Tl was great too (as expected of CG), and once more CG confirmed that they don't do bad novels.

I don't know why but I hated this novel, haha. Maybe it's the way the story was written or something else but it repeatedly give me the urge to stop reading, so I just can't read ahead anymore.

Regardless, it could be an interesting story. As various review have mentioned. I just don't read enough to make a review and rate it.

The plot was good but the story was poorly developed. You cannot feel the feelings of the character when they were acting. It did not stimulate imagination. It points to the author's inexperienced but I know given time he/she will get better. There are scenes which are cut and just left for the reader to speculate what happen. For example, on the part where the ML embraced MC when they slept I think it was christmas or new year anyway it was a holiday but after that nothing happen. It... more>> was a good plot to discover that ML actually have feelings for him. Also the plot for his acting are all the same where he is a two faced character. Still I want to thank the author for his work. Author-san I know you can do it! <<less

I think I'm gonna drop this. I thought it's interesting that MC met again the reincarnation of his beloved general from the past, but 13 chapters and nothing's happening much, faceslapping is lacking in feeling, a bland read.

I also don't like that's there's already so much potential side couples right from the start. I'm just being nitpicky at this point, but I'm okay with side couples however if the side couples are taking too much of a screen time I find it frustrating because I feel like it doesn't do... more>> much for the plot. I prefer focusing on the main couples. <<less

cons: as other commenters have mentioned before, the story i've read so far are kind of frustrating to me. Why is the brother so rude and always making assumptions about mc? Why did ML marry MC in the first place? Why did MC just run to his house in the rain after knowing that ML was home? These details are just ones of the many. The power imbalance in the relationship isnt ok, hopefully it'll change in later chapters. The MC not divorcing ML at first wasnt that understandable, I... more>> mean, even if he was a fan of ml, he should have known that ML would eventually leave him as theres no love in their relationship. The scenes where they act/sing arent really described that well, I couldnt feel the emotion.. Not sure if it's bc of the author or the translator.

pros: I heard that there were a few side couples, which is nice. Their relationship turns fluffy later on. They communicate with each other and sort out misunderstandings together.

to me, it was a frustrating book, I didnt really enjoy it that much, and there are other books who have pulled off this concept better. (Eg. Stop bothering me, emperor) <<less

Read the ch1..

MC felt interesting and cool-headed with a sunny side. The way he shows his amnesia is very realistic, not like other MCs where they tell you that they have amnesia and can't remember anything. His interactions with the bodyguard are also very funny and cute.

Read the ch2..

... more>> I felt that I wanted to bury my head into the ground. MC exclaiming about general with his cool-headed performance in the first chapter totally caught me off-guard. Fortunately, he held himself and returned a little normal.

Read the ch7..

Feeling bad for MC.. ML practically became his stumbling block. And MC can't separate ML and the General. Feeling bad for both...

Read the ch8..

I wanna go and beat that actor. ???

He hurt the MC and I want MC's big bro's attitude to be changed towards him although I know it can't be easily changed. But that bro should still try to understand this kid. He is just running off from reality about his little brother.

Read the ch13..

I wanna go and beat that judge who only pleases well-known people like MC's bro.

After all it was because of him that he gave MC a green light. But when the rumors started he must have thought that was MC's bro's doing and so gave him a red light.


Read the ch14..


MC's bro's attitude changed for better due to that Qin singer but still I feel not pleasant because of what he did to MC's audition.


Read the ch15..

My heart is warming... ??

Read the ch17..

Got some news about MC's past when he was a kid. Feeling like crying..??

Read the ch19..

MC's showbiz road has finally started. And ML seems to start having feelings about him while MC is a fanatic fan of his now. ???

Read the ch25..

MC's bro now has been turned into brother-control yet still can't stop our ML from meeting MC and having sweet moments.

ML also has opened up to his feelings and realised that MC is not the same as before as a person. MC doesn't know this and now he has some aspirations about acting. ML is slightly jealous of Qin Nuoxi.

Ahh!! Happy!!???

Read the ch35..

Ah!! I wanna hide my face!??


First kiss! And MC also likes ML....


Read the ch36..

MC and ML are too fast.

They got together just after MC's first kiss and now they are both fools in love.



Novel Finished

Ah, it was a sweet rollercoaster for me. All characters were fleshed out even the original MC. Although there were enemies, in fact only one character was the true antagonist to the point of obsession.

The ending was good but I wanted the world to know that they are married, watch MC-ML and Yang Lan-Qin Nuoxi both pairs get married and wanted to watch the bodyguard and the broker's love progress.

Ah... Too many unsatisfied feelings that the novel is finished. But I really liked this. There's another regret that there wasn't much showcase of MC's martial arts. Everyone had emotional problems and knots that they wanted to solve which they did slowly. All side pairs are also really good.

This novel is a gem!!! ?

All my regrets were fulfilled by extras. <<less

This novel is good!

The MC comes from the past and inherits all the memories of his body except about his husband. Because of his memories, he is not awkward in modern times unlike other novels like Stop Bothering, Me Emperor.

At the start it was rather dry. The male lead was so indifferent I really didn’t understand why the main character bothered. As the story progresses, it gets even more unsatisfying. Conflicts are barely resolved, and all of it just gave me so much pent up anger.

... more>>

the addition of tang xiao was even more infuriating. I think it was unnecessary to drag it out for so long, and it doesn’t even add much to the plot.


this concept of transmigrating from ancient to modern was done shoddily too, I feel like the author had more room for utilising more of this concept but they fell very short of my expectations.

I regret spending time to read this, the plot leaves much to be desired and it just feels like I’ve wasted my time. Otherwise, chrysanthemum garden did a great job with the translation. Id suggest that you not read rotten girl’s translations because their’s is just plain confusing, to the point where I thought it was just mtl <<less

I’ve circled this story and was hesitant because of an earlier review re: the treatment of the original MC.

Not in any way due to the translation (I appreciate the hard work), but I could not go any further. I found it inexplicable that ... more>>

someone who was a transmigrated soldier would suddenly become an idol about a month in to his transmigration.


Residual relationship could explain the blind allegiance to ML, but regardless of what the original MC did to ‘deserve’ his awful treatment, modern me was hoping the MC would divorce the ML. I love face-slapping and the ML really needs it.

It is probably explained later, but why did they even get married?

It is clear that the ML hates the original MC, basically abandoned him, and then continues to be a d*ck to the current MC until, presumably, he ‘proves’ that he should be treated like a human being.


Also! More qingqong. I expected from the blurb to see more martial arts. <<less

This novel had potential to be so much better than it was. So much potential wasted. I really wanna know how this novel got this high of a rating. Makes no sense. Don't get me wrong, it's a good story but It is 3 stars at most.

The main character, Yang Anyu, is cute and loveable but he often lacks common sense. Sometimes I just question how good of a bodyguard he was in ancient times.

The main lead, Yi Chenyan, fell for the original MC face because it resembled somebody he... more>> liked from a dream. But instead of trying to work it out with the original MC he completely despises and ignores him. That is completely messed up. What makes it even worse is that the original MC is totally in love with Yi Chenyan.

I don't know what it is about this novel but after reading halfway, I couldn't stand any more and had to force myself to finish it. I felt really bad for the original MC because no one seems to care about him. No one cared enough to find out if he is dead or alive and that must have hurt original MC's heart. The man he married because he loved him doesn't even see him. He sees someone else when he looks at original MC and treats him horribly.

Yi Chenyan is another sore point for me. I feel he could have been more likeable character if the author developed him properly. He started out as a butthole and continued to be one, just one that is in love.

The only character/s I genuinely like are Qin Nuoxi and Tang Guo. I like them and wanted to read more about them and their extra chapters weren't enough.

Overall, this novel is ok. It could have been better if the author just developed the characters and plot more. <<less

I read this on CG's site where they've translated the entire thing, it's just password protected so it can't be posted here.

If you enjoy entertainment drama... don't read this. The build up is pretty good, but the ending is completely unsatisfying. Nobody gets appropriately face slapped, which sure is probably more realistic, but is significantly less fun. Also don't read this if you're the type who likes to focus on the main ship; author LOVES introducing new side BL ships constantly and giving them substantial screentime.

Read this if you like

-... more>> transmigration wife chasing where you don't have to slog through a lot of annoying to read relationship ab*se first

- a couple who are open about romance and xxx stuff to each other (no being forced into it here)

- MC family relationship that's actually pretty decent, if not exactly close

- a lot of side characters and side ships (all BL tho)

- a good and detailed backstory behind the transmigration, and resolving it

All in all it was a pretty good read, but there were times I just skipped chapters because I didn't like it. It's only 72 chapters anyway so give it a shot if you have time. <<less

I can't help but feel like the MC and ML's relationship is too one-sided. There is also a power imbalance issue since the MC used to serve ML as his bodyguard. I don't know if this will change later on, but it's just something I noted from their interactions so far.

... more>>

An example is from when MC went back to his family home with his brother. ML has been secretly waiting for MC for a few days. Because the ML has a flight scheduled the next morning, ML's manager finally couldn't stand it and texted MC about it in the middle of the night. And MC just runs home like an obedient dog to his master. Note: during the 6 months they were "married", ML never stayed home and MC has been waiting for him the whole time, albeit without the memories of his past life. But he still loved the ML even then, damn it!

Filled with DOGBLOOD (*which is kinda awesome for a change)


Yang Anyu (MC) and Yi Chenyan (ML) have had a loooo~t of history and I can't say that this is fluffy enough for those who thirst for BL fluff.


The MC was a total powder and an idiot-in-love. He defined the ML as a Blackbelly S but I can say he's a little M-ish on the side. (But don't worry!!! Their personality scales are perfectly normal if you look on the character development.


The side couples were a little obscure but they were adorable.

MTLed this to last, chapter 80 and it worked quite well. I could rate this for 4.6 stars. (Round up to 5 so I could give a little more justice)
