He was confused, so he asked, “I have a car, a house, good-looks and money. What am I lacking in?”

She replied, “All those attributes are what men use to lure mistresses. So, which of those attributes is a good characteristic?”

Ashamed, he reflected, “I am loyal to one and I can host and cook. I can make the bed and accompany you when you wish to go out.”

She replied bitterly, “I shall, reluctantly, accept you then.”

Good men would not let the women they love fight with the mistress but get rid of them on their own.

  • Actually, I same like Su Le, whatever I read the novel,
  • I tends to love when the girl not weak, cool and strong but she still need someone support her.
  • This novel makes me think, like we as women no need to low ourselves to get some attention instead we should empower our inner self. I mean dont be such an hour idiot!
  • As the story - indeed this is differ from other nov but has charms that makes you especially girl realize a lott of things

It was pretty good. What I didn't like about this story was the way the MC acted. She could have shown some more emotions and really showed that she liked the ML, but no she was always completely calm and acting like it has nothing to do with her. Like someone else said, it does seem like she acts like the ML owes her something with the way she treats him. As much as the author and others kept mentioning that she wasn't the prettiest and her other flaws, I... more>> absolutely believe the ML could have done way better and found someone that will actually show emotions to him and really reciprocate his love. Also it did feel like she was calculating her emotions/love like it was math or something. The relationship was just too one sided. I feel like she only got with him cuz he treated her well and I don't like that. Despite all of that it was still a good read when you get past the brick of a MC. <<less

I will, reluctantly, wait for more chapters before I read this. Every historical novel should take note of the line: "Good men would not let the women they love fight with the mistress but get rid of them on their own". I am so tired of reading novels of women having to constantly scheme to survive. It is probable easier said than done, but I would seriously consider living my life as a nun if I were transported back in time.

This novel pretty mediocre. I can't believe it'd be the same author as Eight Treasures Trousseau and To Be A Virtuous Wife. It should be another author with the same name.

I don't like this author's extremist life views. Women are equal to men, not superior. She makes the female lead extremely feminist. Other female characters admire and sing her praises as if that makes her very unique; it's indeed very unique to be so selfish.

The female lead is supposed to be smart and independent, and have a high EQ (being... more>> a romance novel author!). Yet she proves to be the exact opposite:


How can she not realise the ML likes her? Even if in a roundabout way he said no, but his actions definitely show he does. It is obvious to everyone else but her. She accepts so many favours from him while feigning ignorance. And is so happy and shameless when accepting free things without giving much in return 'cause she's stingy. How can this count as smart and independent?


One type of people that really annoys me is the one that complains a lot. And she complains about everything and is hardly ever satisfied! She's always testing the ML and expecting him to prove himself, without feeling the need to reciprocate in any way. It's fine if he treats her well, why would she put in any effort for him? I understand and agree with the way she treats her ex-boyfriend; but why does she act like ML owes her something??!? She's also really lazy and neglectful. He brings the money in the house AND does all household chores!

When he proposed he said he won't request anything from her and he'll do anything she wants! And of course she agreed with this. WTF!!! A relationship involves 2 ppl, it's not one way!

It can't just be one person that puts in all the effort! There's honestly not much to like about her, so I don't think such a character like the ML would like someone like the fl. The author is gravely mistaken if she thinks an adoring slave will come knocking if she keeps acting like a queen.

I do hope we actually get a reason as to why he started liking her from back in university, otherwise, she doesn't really leave a good impression on me from her interactions with ml. Edit: Yeah, no, after reading abt it, there's no reason really. This story is just delusional. <<less

Hm, I feel like I should rate this highly and praise it for having a truly strong female lead and a caring male lead. But honestly? The female lead calculated love like it was an emotion that could be dispensed after praiseworthy actions from the ML, and the male lead was... too good to be true?

It wasn't melodramatic and there was no scheming, but after a while it became stale. Their interactions never exceeded the FL being cool and calm and the ML showering her with his love. There's a... more>> fine line between being cool-headed in love and protecting your heart, and treating love like an equation that can be solved after X number of good things have been done for you. A little more emotion and perhaps a few less chapters would have improved this in my mind. Having said that, it's a nice change from the usual Chinese webnovels, if a bit heavy handed in its message. <<less

I think this one isn't for me. Su Le should be a relatable FL but for me she just comes across as boring af.

The ML is the only character I kind of like because he seems like a big dog, but I end up feeling sorry for him because she's just so... Bland. Why on Earth does he like her??

The (lack of) plot isn't really important to me, since I tend to prefer character driven stories, but when the characters AND the plot are lacking... Does is even hold up?

Not... more>> for me. <<less

It's a nice novel, well written and translated. Not scheming and no drama, kind of a slice of life.

The reason this novel only gets three stars though is because of the main character, a lover of strong independent women who calls herself as such.

Unfortunately, she just seems to bully the male lead and be basically useless the entire way through.

... more>> The male lead is perfect, spoils her and loves her, does anything and everything for her without even telling her.

The only 'good' points she seems to have is that she's respectful, doesn't overreact and doesn't want to spend his money.

I feel like she reminds me of one of those hypocritical feminists who is all about 'independence' but also needs to have a man, who pays for all meals, drives them everywhere, does all the chores and they're actually just there for decoration. And everyone everywhere just seems to praise her for it too.

Additionally, the antagonists don't have any depth, and seem to be stereotypical mean overdramatized fools which in comparison to her seem foolish but their actions don't seem to fit what has already been revealed about them. <<less

I think this novel has a higher rating than it deserves. I've read some reviews before I started it and Maybe I expected a lot?

What I don't like the most is definitely the female lead. I don't even get what's her merit? Why does the ML like her so much ? SHE is bland, doesn't really reciprocate his feelings, and like another review said 'she acts like she owes him something', she wants the ML to do everything for her!! While she receives it shamelessly.

What does she know to do... more>> ? 'Being strong and not like the other the females in novels' (not my words)

And ofc we have that ML who knows how to do everything, cook and do the dishes, take care of the house while the female lead eats melon seeds and watch TV. Tsk tsk pretty unrealistic huh <<less

I truly captivated by this novel. It's such a good plot. It potrays a story about a strong woman and a loyal pursuer of her. It shows that women are independent and don't need a man to control their lives. I've read three of this author's works and it's all about the strength of a woman. We don't necessarily need love of a man in our lives. Hello Wife is a fluffy and sweet novel but it also removes all the stereotype of cheating boyfriend cliché. Bad breakups. It's about... more>> Su Le (MC) who develops into a more beautiful butterfly than she already is. <<less

This author is really amazing. I feel that her novels always teaches me something new, like a new mindset. I really learn quite a lot just by reading Eight Treasure Trousseau and this novel, Hello Wife.

What attracted me to read this novel at first was how the plot sounds interesting, the reviews and that it is the same author as Eight Treasure Trousseau. What made me want to continue to read this novel is because I totally respect and agree with the mindset of the female lead. The mindset and... more>> the actions of the female lead is very respectable. I honestly feel like I learnt a new lesson based on the decisions she made.

For example, when the woman who stole her ex boyfriend always tried to look for trouble with her, she always stayed calm and wasnt angry.

Another example would be a phrase that was stated in the novel where it goes along the line that “As woman, we don’t need to live on men.” Honestly, this phrase is something that I agree very much on. This is because I think even after a breakup, it is not the end of the world. Yes, you may be sad, disappointed or even angry but is it worth it? I think anyone can just climb back up and live on their lives and embrace new opportunities other than love to have the happiness that you want.


In this novel, I think there is not much romance in my opinion. It is mostly the male lead chasing the female lead, which is super sweet and dreamy in my opinion. When they are together, I think it is not much of a new romance blooming but it is like the romance of an old couple that are together for a very long time. This relationship is based on trust and respect for each other. The trust summarised most of the chapters

When there was a love rival appeared where a woman who liked the male lead for a long time appeared, the female lead still acted very calmly. After that, she had to go on a trip for a signing event for her novels, in the plane she has sudden random thoughts and worries for whether the male lead would have a change of heart. But quickly, she told herself that there is no point in worrying about that and what is done would be what is done. She would only need to go back to face it and solve it. And she trust him this once.

I think this part is very memorable and very true in my opinion. If the male lead were to have a change of heart, the only thing she can do is face it. It taught me that if you trust someone, you should just stick to that decision and if something goes wrong just clean it up and there is no point in overworrying.


In conclusion, I would recommend this novel to anyone that is looking for a change where it is not the typical weak girl with her fragile mindset but a female lead with a strong, practical and logical mindset. I think this novel brings out a lot of new “teachings”. However, I would not recommend this novel to someone who is looking for very intense and passionate romance novels. <<less

Am I the only one who finds it uncomfortable that the ML causes the MC to unwittingly betray all of her professed feminist ideals by secretly interfering in her career? And isn't it deceptive to get her to fall in love with this big facade of his that's very different from how everyone else knows him in real life? It's also not nice that he's always lying about his intentions and manufacturing situations to get them together. How would it look if her ex came up with similar excuses to... more>> win her heart while pretending that he wants to remain "friends"? <<less

To me, this is just a passable novel to read. As compare to author's "To be a virtuous wife", this has less drama to it.

Overall, it's a cute novel where ML chase after MC for years. Although, I feel that ML could have selected a better girl to be the MC. I feel that MC is treating ML like a slave. :/

I will update once I progress through the novel.

My initial thoughts:

One or two mentions from the author on how the MC is not the typical female lead that you'd see in melodramas or other web novels usually will suffice but it got tacky when the author mentions it in what felt like every other sentence. Yes, we already got it, thank you! MC comes across very bland and boring thus far. And ML is a little too perfect and boring.

... more>>

MC was known as a school beauty and was chased by one of the richest and most handsome boys in the school. They dated for several years and he only cheated on her because she wouldn't give it up to him (because a man has needs). When they broke up, she doesn't cry or feel hurt. In fact, she takes it as though it was expected because her mother had warned her that rich and handsome men will only break your heart. This stems from having a father who abandoned their family for another woman.

Having resigned from her job due to a work colleague stealing her work, she's now jobless on top of being boyfriendless and homeless (she was supposed to move in with her boyfriend). But magically, her best friend is a young miss from a rich family so she can stay with her. Also, MC masquerade as an author who writes under a pen name and despite having no job, she has enough money saved if she wanted to buy an apartment or car. Do authors make this much? I'm in the wrong line of work.

ML is 2 years her senior and fell in love with her while they were in college together. Unfortunately, she was pursued by someone else so he lost his chance. MC, of course, have no recollection of ML despite him being the most famous alumni of their college. ML silently stalked her, even knowing her pen name and buys her novels when they come out. When he finds out that MC and her boyfriend broke up, he jumps in to chase her. MC is so oblivious, even the people around her know what's up. He's a dream catch: rich, handsome, dotting, knows how to cook, offers an apartment of his for her to rent for cheap.

MC laments that if ML wasn't so handsome, he would be just her type to the point that ML thinks about getting plastic surgery because he's too handsome. *Vomits*

Every novel of this author is worth reading. The Female lead is very independent, the type of person who knows who is worthy of her tears and her heart. While the Male lead dotes on FL so much it's so adorable ‪♡. I love that he's more on "the action speaks louder than words" type (the things he does for the FL can make you swoon so bad). I definitely recommend this novel. It's light and fluffy. ‪♡

awww, this novel is so sweet, don’t mind those few stars that other gave for this novel. This novel is great it shows how women can be independent and don’t really rely on men but also shows that men are all not the same. Give this novel a chance and see how fluffy Su Le and Wei Chu’s love story is.

"There were no misunderstandings like in novels, no 3rd parties, and no big changes. Everything went by calmly like water flowing in a lake."

This quote from the novel is a perfect description of Hello, Wife. It's a light novel that can ruin the chances of many men because been compared to this ML is unfair to all real men. He's just perfect. FL is amazing herself. I adore strong female leads, they're so cool (〜 ̄▽ ̄) 〜

And she's the definition of coolness. And he, the definition of henpecked (in a very... more>> very good way).

It has potential.. But as the story progresses it turns a bit meh. I love the author, have read her other works such as TBAVW, and ETT, this is my first modern setting novel from her. And compare to previous projects, this one is my least fave.

This author like to write strong powerful FL, but on this one, I don’t feel FL much. And the love story seems too one-sided, their love and connection are not convincing enough for me, feel like ML do all the works while FL just... more>> passively agree with their relationship because ML is a good man, he pursue and did all the thing for FL. Maybe it’s the author attempts in writing comedy, it’s just me that can’t really connect to her story this time.

Overall, it’s just okay-ish for me. Not bad reading, it’s quite fun for short and light novel. Oh, The translation is great though. <<less

I just love this novel, honestly I am fed up of novel having extremely weak MC as well as extremely indifferent MC who could be just as cruel. But the MC here is really nice, brave, courageous. She didn't hold any grudge but she did not forgive the ex this shows how mature she is. And her relationship with ML is also very nice. Trust matters the most in a relationship and I can feel the trust there. To be frank ML is too good to be true, but if... more>> I anyone asks me about ideal love interest it would be the ml. <<less

I really enjoyed this novel. A few reasons include:

  1. The female lead has a really good head on her shoulders. It makes me really glad that she was able to keep her dignity pretty much intact despite what she went through. I am definitely a person that can really relate to her in the sense that love shouldn't be the only thing that sustains you and the moment you lose it somehow it makes your whole world crumble and make you enable to do anything without finding a new love or getting back with an old love.
  2. The male lead isn't overbearing and understands the female lead and doesn't view her as a prize to be won. He treats her well and with respect and I live for that.
  3. Despite no dramatic scenes, the story really keeps you hooked and make you want to keep reading until the end and all the characters fill their role well and not stupidly frustrating.
  4. Also really like the lowkey shade that the author throws at scenes that are seen in dramas and how unrealistic it is when you compare it to real life.
Overall, I definitely recommend this novel if you want to read something sweet and to get that satisfying feeling when you see a female lead that is strong and gets what she deserves and doesn't... more>> lose her personality once she gets with the male lead. Also do read it if you like female leads that doesn't lose their cool despite being faced with adversity and awkward situations. <<less

Best webnovel read till date. This stands in my top favourite with The malicious empress of military lineage.

The story is normal and not much cliched with unnecessary plots like second lead, misunderstanding etc. It's simple and beautifully written. Although female lead may appear cold to few people, not all humans are same. So they can't expect female lead to get a 180° change in her behaviour just because of entering a romantic relationship. Being rationale and taking time to understand the person who you may possibly spend life time with... more>> is something that requires time and understanding. Being reserved doesn't mean the character is cold. It can be said the MC is someone who weighs sincerity and respect more than moment of impulse and thus she takes her time to be sure than regret it later, which is actually a good trait as long as it's not too late.

This novel was like a breath of fresh air after continuously dropping out domineering CEO/president type novels. I hope this type of normal and sane stories get the credits it deserve. <<less
