Guide to Raising a Supporting Male Lead


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

When she inexplicably came into this world, the novel’s supporting male lead had yet to become the future boss of the underworld who could overturn the heavens. For now, the supporting male lead is only a frail young boy, a defenseless little chick in a world where the plot of the novel remains unfinished. Meanwhile, Lin Xin became the standard passerby who only wished to stay away from the budding plot.

What sort of supernatural event is this? Transmigration Deity, come out!

I promise I won’t beat you to death…

I don’t usually write reviews but, here we go.

First, thank you translator as you have conveyed the story in a fluent and grammatically correct manner. Hands down, this site is a great novel translation site as I read a few other novels there.

Slight spoilers below:

... more>> You’ve been warned.

My problems with this story are not from the translations, no it is with the character development and the story itself. Specifically the female lead. Her naivety, irrationality and recklessness really disturbed me because she made life much MUCH worse for that poor child, the male lead. As someone whose own family member suffered from, let’s say, domestic abuse. I know first hand, what you should and shouldn’t do to help the child. Things need to be taken care of discreetly without alerting the perpetrator, which is the exact opposite of what our female lead did. All in all, for a so-called 20 year old woman, she has very little EQ and common sense to deal with delicate situations such as that one. My god! Upright telling the perpetrator that you’re going to the police is step one in getting yourself killed. Holy hell can you be more dumb. I see absolutely no character development in this incredible short and frustrating story. <<less

I'll start off by saying props to the translator, who is the only reason this gets above one star. Reading through it is very easy and smooth. I usually don't bother posting reviews, but this is one of the first times I've hated a female lead this much, and I've always considered myself someone who's actually pretty lenient on female leads compared to others I've known both online and off (I've been watching k-dramas and reading shoujo/josei manga since I was like twelve years old). To give a spoiler-free reason... more>> for why I dislike her: basically, she's supposed to be a mature 28-year-old woman who transmigrates to the body of a child; despite this, she is actually really immature, quite rude, and pretty damn stupid.

I'll elaborate in the spoiler:


So from the start, I found her personality kinda off-putting. She's quite mean to a girl who's just trying to be her friend, and she does it because that particular girl was a villain in the book she transmigrated into, but it just doesn't come off right because the girl is so nice to her and displays zero negative feelings towards her? But that was just a minor thing I overlooked since her reason, while debatable to me, made sense overall (and is seen pretty often in these types of stories).

The part that really pissed me off is when we learn about the male lead's story. Basically, the dean of their orphanage molests him regularly. I'm pretty sure it even goes as far as full-blown rape. Yeah, it's f*cked up. So naturally, a 28 year-old woman should be a little knowledgeable about how grave this situation is and that she should act carefully, right?

Nope. She literally tells the dean she knows he's molesting the ML and that she's going to report him. What the actual f*ck? I'm four years younger than the FL and I've never dealt with victims of abuse in my life, but even I know that you SHOULD NOT go to the perpetrator and tell them you know they're abusive and that you're going to report them to the police. That's how you put either yourself or the victim in an even more dangerous situation, and it might even lead to your or the victim's death.

If that wasn't bad enough, when the male lead, an abused 12-14 year old boy (don't remember his exact age but he's around this young) asks her if she finds him dirty and hates him, she tells him off and tells him she doesn't want him anywhere near her. These aren't even her genuine feelings - she says that because she feels that it'll help her protect him. And maybe it will, because the author is the one in charge of this stupid ass story. But in real life, a grown ass adult should know better than to say such cruel things to an abused child whose greatest fear is that people will find him dirty and not want him. What the hell.

Overall, there might be worse female leads out there. Ones who are stupider, ones who are meaner, ones who can do nothing but be little damsels in distress. But my god, I have never hated a female lead this much. I will take a hundred shrinking violet damsels in distress before I read another novel with this type of female lead. I think what's making me so angry about it is that she's this bad in a story that's so messed up. The male lead is just there suffering at the hands of a monster while I have to read about this dumbass female lead making dumbass decisions that the author will inevitably frame as good because the author decides what's good. This type of thing happens a lot in real life, so it hurt me to read about the atrocities committed by the dean and pissed me off to then read the female lead's responses to it. A very bad experience.

I'll place my blame on the author, who obviously has not done enough research on how to handle cases of child abuse. You should not implement such a heavy plotline into your story if you have no idea how to handle it sensibly.


I actually love these "transmigrate into the body of a side character or villainness" type stories regardless of how repetitive they can get if you read too many, but this one was a total dud. Wouldn't recommend to anyone, especially if you're particularly sensitive to mentions of child and/or sexual abuse like me. The villain will likely get his punishment in the end, but the journey there seems like it'd be too filled with frustration at the female lead to be worth sticking around. <<less

It had an abrupt ending and it just feels like the story line could've been expanded on so much more. Honestly, there were so many characters that I feel were unresolved; in the sense that they could've been developed upon more and they story line could've been more in depth. Lastly, it feels so rushed that I want to cry. I'm someone with an overactive imagination at times so I thought the ending was more of a bad cliffhanger that a finale.

It only serves to get more disappointing from here.

Author keeps painting FMC as "clever" and "calculative", when really she's just a cruel old hag in a kid's body.

I'm not even sure how she had enough heart to adopt the ML as the "only kid worth her pity" when she shits all over these 2 other innocent kids just because she knows those kids would become villains according to the future plot.

If she hadn't treated everyone but herself and the ML as a character in a book, she could've changed a... more>> lot of peoples fates. <<less

F**k. My. Life. This has been one of THE MOST heartrending, yet beautiful rollercoaster of a novel that I have read In YEARS. There were no OP characters for whom everything went well just because, and no Mary Sue or White Lotus FL or badass just because ML. Everyone was human, and they felt the repercussions of their actions. There was legit karma that came up and bitchslapped just about every character in the novel. It's a shame this story was dropped by the original translator because they were doing... more>> an amazing job. I felt like crying at the right parts, and felt sick to my stomach sadness and rage at the appropriate parts too. I would have loved an epilogue and some bonus chapters. I agree that the ending came quickly, but it did end in a way that made sense with the characters and what they hoped for in life. Which was to be with one another. Thank you to webnovels for posting the later chapters, and sorry for the rant, but d*mn I even made an account for THIS that is how hardcore this was.. All right imma go to bed now, and think about life. <<less

When I got to reading this.

Its very funny and good.

But the more you read the suspense it gets.


lun xinyu turned out to be sexually abuse by the dean.

The matter of explaining thus is not very detailed. It leaves you to your imagination. And mine is too dirty. I imagine worse. Just search "boku no piku ep 1. Then thats how crazy that is.

Poor xinyu. I dont undetstand why lin xin did not tell xinyu and why she didnt ask for help from wu pingping

Simply not to my taste, I couldn't get into this no matter how good the translations were. I couldn't understand the MC and I felt like she was too indecisive and too mean to the ML. The beginning is an utter slog to get through and I didn't get very far before I dropped this. I tried to like it, but simply couldn't.

First of all, the story building in the early stages was good. Unfortunately, in the middle of the story, it became a bit more crappy and ends with an even crappier way. It is as if, the author has given up on this story after the climax. It could have been made better but noooo... the author decides to make it worse.

All in all, it is novel that you can read if you got nothing to read and wanna wait for a better novel.

Just finished this novel yesterday, and it left me dissatisfied, craving for moooooore!!

Honestly, this novel had so much potential. I really love the plot twist! The MC isn't just a mere passerby after all. Hehehe, I kinda guessed it...

I gotta say, I watched and played this song, ... more>>

"Never Enough" by The Greatest Showman Cast. https://www. youtube. com/watch?v=rQWZK5U233s

it was so relatable to this novel. This is a must-read yandere novel!

I'd like to highlight:
  1. The obedient dog-like, yet cruel merciless second ML (Lin Xinyu). I particularly like it when the second ML's darkest secrets were exposed and the MC wasn't able to accept him. She blamed herself for failing to raise him into a good person. Meanwhile the second ML was groveling, begging for her forgiveness. Mwahahahhahahahah
  2. As for the original ML (Xiao Tian) ? You can ignore him hahah. He's a snobbish, arrogant and genius CEO. You see this kind of ML everywhere in Chinese novels nowadays.




P.S. The MC transmigrate twice in the same world. That means... she'll die once, leaving so much regrets for the second ML and original ML. Hah!


P. P. S. Don't trust the chapter numbers in the novel translation site. Yes, the original raws is 56 chapters, but the translation had cut it into smaller parts, so I believe the number of translated chapters should at least be double. <<less

So far, the first three chapters captured my attention as it is in line with my interest. (Transmigration, comedy, not in protagonist's body) I'll give this 5 stars for its potential to be a wonderful novel. I'm gonna update this once there are more chapters.

For me, it was kinda nice at the start, like pitying Lin Xinyu and all, but as the chapters progressed, I just couldn't help but not like the characters at all.

... more>>

The MC is just really weird. She could have prevented all this earlier by acting silent and not getting involved at all. And if she felt bad, she could have acted covertly and called the police. And every character in this book is just so wicked in some way. It started fairly reasonable but by the end, it just became some cliche drama, filled with the regular soap drama type female lead who needed to be rescued many times over.

Looking forward to this! :) This is a bit more different from most isekai novels. At least it's passerby A (FL) supporting her beloved male supporting lead (ML) to achieve happiness :) Will post more/ update once there are more chappies read :)

actually the story is quite good but im so disappointed about the character of FL nor ML/supporting ML, maybe its just not my type of FL so I have to drop this. You can see how I dont like the way FL thinking or maybe she's not, from the beginning of the chapter. But after all the translation is good, and ty for the Translator.

Ok, in the beginning I was also really irritated with MC and how she expects maturity in children while being completely childish herself and casually saying things that really hurt to those kids.

However, after a while there is some explanation to some of the things she did, and things ended up turning for the better (compared to if she'd just ran off to the police). Not that some of her decisions weren't dumb, but it's a consolation.

She's still really cold borderline cruel to other people who want to be close... more>> to her, but at least she treats Lin Xinyu wholeheartedly and Aunt Hui. I wish she treated Cheng Papa better though since he also does genuinely care for her. <<less

I'd rate this a 3.5 if I could. It's mostly a dramatic and interesting spin on transmigrating-into-a-novel, but it loses major points for the ending, which is very abrupt, as others have commented. MC, ML and secondary ML are the only ones with really developed personalities. Everyone else is mostly there to move the plot along.

Based on the original premise of the novel (the MC being a petty and critical fan) I would have thought the ending would at least wrap up with some self-aware reflection on the part of... more>> the MC, but it didn't.

Most of the story is decently constructed with overarching plotlines that are laid out from the beginning. It's a short read with good pacing and dramatic twists and turns. <<less

I am so angry I don't even want to bother commenting translation quality or anything. All I want to do is to

kill that nasty paedophils dean, strangle his useless neck and skin him alive, after that, give his disgusting body to hannibal.


This is too realistic and in a sense, probability proving that the writer successfully bring the readers into his/her storyline.


ML is broken, so much it broke my heart. He developed dependency to MC as she's the only one who helped him when he was bullied and thus to be able to befriend with her, he gave every food he had (from the nasty predator I want to burn) to MC. Food was scarce in their orphanage so his actions spoke a lot


I admit that I have not reach the main story or plot yet, but I think this issue needs more attention compared silly and shallow romances (which was my initial reason to read this novel).

Aah, seriously! I'm so mad I don't even want to continue! <<less

hm. Not very good. Translation quality is excellent, but I agree with most of the reviews above - if you want to be incredibly frustrated over the FL’s choices in the story, then go ahead and read on. She’s blunt and outright cruel in various sequences, and yet this doesn’t affect how the ML sees her at all.

... more>>

how she handles the ML’s sexual abuse and r*pe by the orphanage’s owner is downright horrific, and iirc she’s fairly cold to both her foster parents and the ML later when they both get adopted.

The story started out good but, the ending seem so rush that the author was trying to put an end to many things.


The dean will be arrested for molesting Lin Xinyu. Lin Xin castrated him to pay for his deeds but later in the story, he will appear again to hinder Lin Xinyu and Lin Xin's reunion. His uncle, Li Ya helped him to meet Lin Xinyu again.


I held good expectations when I read the first few chapters of the story but, sadly, it disappointed me.
