He Lifted My Red Veil

Description

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

As a gay who always falls in love with straight men by accident, Le Han has been single for twenty years. In the border of collapse, he looked up to the sky and requested the love of Lao Gong.

At this time, the popular virtual game across the country introduced a new way of marriage playing: Tie the knot, also known as ‘Choose the bride and choose the groom.’

Le Han: Good, it’s just for me.

However, facing the outstanding and elegant grooms in the ‘Groom Selection’ area, Le Han blushed shyly and was embarrassed to choose.

So he returned to the ‘Bride Selection’ area, put on a red wedding gown, covered his head with a red veil, and obediently waited for the gong to choose him.

…He never expected that a big man would come.

Solid 4 stars

It's no gourmet meal but a good enough light snack. The story is adorable, cute and funny. It's very fast paced hence could be seen as shallow. It can be quite nonsensical at times and cringy. It tried to touch some problems in reality but because of the nonsensical G4U relationship and background I can't really take it seriously. So the novel ended up being not here nor there.

MC: imagine a white bunny with very sharp teeth and hard punch. He's quiet but not a doormat, he's cute... more>> and adorable but throw a good fight. Strong and preserving. Face con, sound con and also easily fall in love.

ML: Beautiful, cold, good at singing, doting to MC, yellow paste brain. He's a basic ML but he's still written interestingly.

The relationship is quite convoluted with the small account, main account and real life which make a good drama, telenovela style. In the words of netizen there it is "romantic enough, bloody enough, tortuous enough, exciting enough" of a story.

This is probably a hit or a miss, but I'm quite entertained. <<less

So many men actually like MC. Disappointing. I thoufht it was ML x MC but it's actually ML x MC x Side harem. I was DECEIVED. I thought he has love troubles because nobody likes him, but BOOM, he's actually a heartthrob shou.

Its MISLEADING, f*cking misleading, and I am so SO disappointed. I was hoping for fluff and 1v1 romance with no side-men clamoring for MC's attention but it exactly IS that. If that's what you want, then thus is for you, but it's exactlye the SAME REASON why I... more>> dropped this at c17.

17 chapters in, and we have: he yiming, the god player with the trumpet account, the prince of Tang who like him, but I guess his close roommate also likes MC. 4 in total. Thats 3 more boys than i'd like to see being in love with MC. Heed this f*cking warning. <<less

Fun and sweet story with some drama, NO HAREM! I realy have to emphasize this since I was mislead by a popular one star review and almost missed this one.

This novel is a one on one story. Yes there are a lot people around MC but neither has nor had he any relationship with those men. He "falls easy in love"... Basically he is a face con and has crushes on hot guys but doesn't chase or confess to them. He simply wants to fall in love and have a... more>> boyfriend but is rather unlucky in the love department. Here a full spoiler of the men around MC, Names and involvement:

Spoiler

Qi Xun -ML.

Prince Tang - ingame Guy. He "fell in love" with MCs second account and crazily chase him. There is no real reason why he fell in love and has history in s*upidly chasing people. No threatening charakter, just a fun extra.

He Yiming – MCs previous crush and a senior student... and a real ass hole. He realized MCs crush and played with him, dating a girl that is MCs nemesis, trying to force a kiss on MC and thinking he could get him with a finger sniping.

High school class monitor whose name I don't know - he was a crush MC told his finds on wechat about. When his phone got stolen by his seat mate he took screenshots and exposed MCs sexuality to everyone which started a year of hell and abuse for MC. It's never made clear if the guy was involved.

Xu Jingsen - First rate pervert that was leading in abusing and humiliating MC back in high-school for being gay. Rich and spoiled family background. Pops up 2 years later (present time) more insane than ever and wants to abuse and r*pe MC. Didn't end well for him.

Everyone else are just friends or enemies.

[collapse]

The story plays in the present but with a developed VR helmet that connects your brainwaves to the game world. MC just wants a relationship so desperately that he enters a ingame blind date/marriage event area. Since he is too indecisive to choose for himself, he enters the room to "get chosen " and dons a red wedding dress with a veil. (The area is clearly marked with danmei so there are only men in those wedding dresses) Since all the wives look the same, there is a prop table and every prop is unique. It will only appear again after the user left and once taken you can't get rid of it. MC waited on that table for a respawn and when it happened he fought to grab it... then he realized it was a sm collar. Ashamed he withdrew in a corner and went "afk".... some time earlier the future ML got a distress call from his friend that was screwed over by his sister in retaliation. When he was afk, his sister put his main account character, which is highly popular, in the danmei area with a wedding dress and veil and also took a sm collar as prop. The evil thing... once entered you can't leave the area until someone marries you. So he kneeled down to ask his friend to "marry ", eh rescue him. The also well known ML changed to his trumpet/smurf/twink and goes to the rescue... not knowing the prop already changed hands....

The story is really fun. Seconds after the unveiling MC already realized that ML did look for someone else but both decided to play until divorce is possible. It is a bit abrupt that ML fell in love but it's not all to annoying and needed to further the story. There are a lot of misunderstandings and fun situations since they didn't tell each other the names of their other characters. There are even some heart wrenching situations but all ends well.

Only parts of the story are ingame. When they start meeting in real-life the ingame action basically disappears to the background.

I really liked that flow between MC andML.

If you look for a deep novel with high standards, move on.

If you want an easy reading with fun and a bit of dogblood and face slapping, this is it. Yeah... sometimes I need this kind of guiltily pleasure.

Is read it. <<less

A solid 3 stars. It was okay.

I went in for fluff and maybe a dash of hidden identity (because who doesn't like that?) but it dissolved into this whole semi dogblood drama. It was okay at first. But then I realised it doesn't seem to end. Just one drama after another. Where was the fluff?

Some parts had me disappointed but I thought it was actually well explained and quite (?) well thought out by the author so it almost boosted the story to 4 stars for me. But the semi-nonsensical... more>> part of the story, overall, is still 3 stars.

So dogblood drama:
Spoiler

both MC and ML have 2 identity in game and although they were forth coming in it to each other, some misunderstandings there of each other hating the other's other identity. And they had a lot of "rivals-in-love" added into the mix that added to the drama. While it was very entertaining at the beginning. It was actually a bit much because, their relationship was only a DAY OLD. So like, I didn't even understand how ML could like MC so much to withstand these ridiculous external factors. Felt like their relationship needed to weather the internal part before these external part can come in. Also, MC himself had a lot of IRL issues. On to next spoiler.

[collapse]

This part made me take a step back on MC a little but I think author tried to develop it into MC's character and kind of explained it. Might be off-putting for some people in the beginning, not gonna lie:
Spoiler

MC is the "easy to fall in love" kind of chara. Doesn't sound much but there's this lovers quest in the game where the game somehow shows them all their past crushes or what-not and their current lover will be able to see. ML then finds out MC had over 10 past crushes and is in shock (ya who wouldn't) and gets quite insecure. Like MC will like anyone who is just a little nice to him because he is in love with the idea of love (?). A friend of his says it's because MC wants to see the good in people instead of the bad and so when he does it, it's easy to like someone (but then won't he like all his friends romantically too lol?). Anyway, I feel it isn't deeply explained because many can be superficial crushes and not deep love and hey, I think many people can have multiple crushes over time right? But ML is very understandably insecure because what if MC easily likes someone else. Anyway it gets resolved when MC explains he won't be like that when he is in a relationship and while he easily likes others, he does look at things like compatibility. I just thought from a certain perspective, MC might look like a slag man for love, jumping from one man to another. But author tries to explain it and it's rather well explained, I think.

[collapse]

So towards the end, after more misunderstandings, I think there was that bit of fluff I was promised but by then I was speed reading and I've reached the end. It's not a long read so if you want a good read with gaming (gotta admit the gaming aspect with the warring countries was actually interesting) and a lot of hidden identities and misunderstandings, it's a good read. <<less

You know what is the best thing about this novel :

The MC

I love him.

... more>> I love his personality. I love how he was not a push over. I love how he knew that he is not wrong just because he likes people easily and, he stands up for himself. He maybe physically weak but he is way stronger mentally.

◆His character actually taught me life lesson about not to judge people easily and respect everyone's personal choices. It has broadened my mind.◆

Now

Keep your patience for starting 2-3 chapters where it feels like the development between the couple is so fast that you want to drop the novel.

【Because that's what I felt.】

After 2-3 chapters you will get the hang of their characters and things will actually start developing afterwards between them.

Comedy is good too 😂. The comedic undertone and situations are actually laughable and not forced.

I won't say anything more as many reviewers has already revealed.

ML is good. Side characters are good as you can actually like the good characters and hate the villainous ones.

Special mention : MC's roommate. He was so supportive and protective of the MC. I like him.

Totally recommended.

Just read it. It has only 65 chapters, will only take 2-3 days or so. <<less

I don't know how anyone could give this story less than five stars. It is truly one of the sweetest, fluffiest, most adorable novel. Both characters are intelligent, hardworking, and despite the MC being naive, he always stands up for himself.

Despite being a fluff novel, there is some drama but it was the right amount. It was well fleshed out, the resolutions were well explained and made sense in the storyline, and overall the drama was neither overdone, nor was it glossed over too easily.

I highly recommend this one to... more>> everyone. <<less

When it's hinted that MC has trouble in the love category, I'm expecting exactly that when I enter the story. He's weak to faces and falls in love easily coz of it... ok I accept that. What irked me a lot was BAM! Suddenly, left, right, center - hot guys are clamoring for MC....???? All of the side characters felt ridiculously unimportant to the plot. It made me think that the author was forcing me as the reader to find MC so charmingly attractive that these guys can't help but... more>> get attracted to him. Nope. Didn't feel it at all.

Not to say that he doesn't have his endearing sides. I actually do love the way he handled himself when he was bullied. Except, there were too few chapters that any character development I wanted to read was nowhere to be seen.

It was a fast read for me but not a novel I'd be reading again. <<less

NO HAREM!!! I am so glad I read this and that I wasn’t swayed by the popular review! It is nothing like that review!

It is fluffy, slight misunderstandings because they are online and just met but they love each other and respect each other!! The misunderstandings are quickly solved!

I love the positivity of the MC and his acceptance of himself as he is, I love how the ML is able to change, become less possessive as he comes to know the MC more and treats him gently and with such... more>> respect! I love that there is a basis for the misunderstandings and that they find a way to work through them and I love that it is still simple and silly.

All in all a recommended read for those who don’t necessarily want a heavy read, it is quick but full of laughs and love and made me smile and care ❤️ <<less

The premise sold me; execution could have been better. If you’re looking for secondhand embarrassment & a s*upidly cute main CP, you might want to check this out. I have issues about the flow of the events in this novel, but overall it’s a good quick read to settle for.

He Lifted My Red Veil is a fairly lighthearted novel, a lot of humor but has conflicts that come close to reality. It concerns the theme of bullying that occurs due to sexual status.

What did I get?

- 20% Chinese game RPG type
- 30% of love interests flying in the air + humor
- 30% novel conflict
- 20% psychological side and bullying theme

... more>> ML is almost perfect. The title is no CEO but later found out that ML can get the title of CEO if he wants.

The MC is a little shy, a temptress but has determination and a clear purpose in life. If angry is scary enough even though it is usually passive. <<less

I have problems with the handling of the MC's second persona.

... more>>
Spoiler

The MC has two characters he plays in the VR MMORPG. One of them he plays "normally" or should I say, with more socially accepted behavior. The second avatar is for stress relief, and he doesn't censor himself because he doesn't care how people perceive him while he wears the throwaway account

Near the beginning of the book, the MC is constantly put down as a lady-boy in the MMORPG VR world due to the feminine looks of this second, spare avatar and his habit of flirting with men and whatever unfiltered shenanigans he gets up to. I find it sad that this sassy persona of his is so unloved and denigrated by the masses, since this is probably the truest manifestation of his inner desires. So what if he likes to dress girly? So what if he flirts? So what if he wants to fall in love? Even the ML takes one look at this avatar and says "that can't be my precious baby, there's no way *my* BF could be so unrestrained.

He only does a 180 when he realizes MC is the one behind this apparently awful ladyboy. I'm not saying that a person has to love every single thing about another in order for it to be true love, but the second avatar seemed to be a big part of the MC's personality that he was forced to hide in order to fit in.

After the two meet IRL, this second sassy persona seems to have evaporated. Whatever. Dear ML, Have fun enjoying your precious shy wifey that is neutering themselves to fit in.

Another thing I don't understand is how everyone accepts the MC after he gets with the ML when basically everyone has an oPINIon on his ladyboy ways. Even MC himself doesn't seem to have trepidation upon have his controversial avatar associate with his main when he seems pretty concerned about distancing himself at the beginning of the book. He's still the same person, right? Why are people suddenly like, ohhhh I guess the ladyboy isn't so bad if ML over there likes him.

???

[collapse]

Worldbuilding is extremely weak.

Spoiler

Given that there are headsets that can directly pull people into an immersive VR world using some vague brainwave tech, you would expect the setting to be somewhat futuristic, but other than the VR headset, I don't see any details of other advancements. The mobile phone is still a mobile phone. Cars are still mundane cars. At least as far as the author describes. Maybe the cars fly and the phones have holographic projectors and the author is failing to describe them properly. Who knows. There is nothing in the text to suggest that this isn't taking place in a modern 21st century setting. They're even using weibo ffs. Okay fine, let's put aside why there are only advancements in the headsets, but why are people only using them for entertainment? It's a huge waste of potential imo.

IT WAS VERY FUNNY AND CUTE STORY HAHAHAH

also with a touch of slice of life. Our MC experienced extreme bullying but salute to him cause he did not give up on himself despite the time wherein his own parents are scolding him.

I also like the way the two couple faced each other honestly. There were some misunderstandings but they overcome it and making them understand each other better. MC is very hardworking and ML is good in supporting. The game elements are very funny with lots of interesting characters. There's... more>> also some side couples.

Actually good. I liked how there weren't all of those over exaggerated misunderstandings and Drama! I mean, the MC and ML only had two blocks in their path to form a relationship and it wasn't made into some big plot that went on for like 15 chapters.

A bit too magical but it was cute. I actually like the Daji side to MC, and ML who at first seems like typical cold, aloof, powerful ML but can actually be jealous, coquettish, and petty.

Overall it's a bit brainless but the characters are lively and interesting.

Light read and cute story but nothing special.

I like that the MC is strong emotionally and physically, not a pushover. He experienced too much bullying but his will to overcome those experiences is his strongest point. He did get some trauma (as expected) but it didn't stopped him from achieving his goals. The ML is very doting and he is your typical "cold to others but sweet to wifey" kinda guy, so yeah nothing special especially if you've read 100+ BL story already.

If you want depth and with strong plot,... more>> this is not for you. If you want light, drama free, no misunderstanding kind of story, then try this one. This is something that I would not reread again. <<less

4.5 stars.

Both MC and ML are cute. No s*upid dog blood drama. Misunderstandings are quickly resolved.

Quick note - Although the setting takes place in virtual world, the focus is mainly on MC and Ml. There is no gaming element like (fighting stuffs, equipment) etc.

As for 0.5 star minus,

Spoiler

After both of them got together, Ml's mother behavior kinda put me off. She wants a cute girl but MC is a man so she tries to make him wear cute girl clothes cuz he seems to be soft and cute like a girl.

I can accept she thinks he is cute but she shouldn't try to do that.

Another thing is her behavior of abusing her power as professor to ask MC solve the questions for 3 times in a row. (Cuz ML sits besides MC and she feel annoyed by her son)

She can't distinguish between her work and personal.

[collapse]

Aside from that, It's okay.

Supporting characters are interesting. Villains are brainless but not so bad to the point of dropping.

Also, it's not harems btw. For those who afraid, MC really cut clean of those guys who like him. <<less
