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.

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. :/

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.

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.

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.
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]

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

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

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:

Spoiler

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?

[collapse]

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!
Spoiler

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!

[collapse]
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

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

I've read the first few chapters. Like it a lot. If I understood correctly it is a novel about a woman, who is very rational and a aguy who pursues her. Loved the story so far.

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. ‪♡

Very refreshing! It knows it's own tropes and gives them a twist while poking a little fun of them. Female lead is very practical kind. Looking forward to more!

"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).

PS.: I want one Wei Chu in my lifeeeeeee〜 I want to be spoiled rotten by a hubby like thiss〜 <<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

Just finished reading this novel and I would like to put this novel into one of my 10 favorites.

I really like the FL's character was like. She's strong, thinks rationally, calm, smart and adaptable, and independent. It's really an image many women would admire (including myself). I really like stories's FL with strong personality like Su Le.

The ML's set up as a rich, handsome, loyal, considerate and gentle man to FL, makes the two of them like a match made from heaven. The couple are a perfect match that makes... more>> people really envious. Peoples with personalities like Wei Chu and Su Le was a bit difficult to find in reality.

The romance between the FL and ML is pretty cute and flufy, but also contained a 'pure' atmosphere. Although the romance and the main leads characters were too good to be true that it's almost impossible, I still like this novel so much!!

As I read this novel, I thought about how a good woman will eventually find a good man who loves her and willingly spend the rest of their lives together, and the same thing goes for the opposite. <<less

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

Having read the author's Ancient China novels, my review will be biased as all three heroines are fundamentally very similar, believing in practicality over love and all being very emotionally strong woman.

Su Le feels like the weakest between her, Hua Xi Wan and Qu Qing Ju. She doesnt quite have the mesmerizing charisma of Qing ju or the indolent charm of Xi wan, although considering how normal she's meant to be that's fair enough. The problem is I could never quite get invested in her and thus her relationship with... more>> wei chu. I sort of liked her but she just didn't hold enough charisma to keep me captivated throughout.

Having read this after TBAVW and 8TT, modern times doesnt quite have the appeal without the signature ancient double speak and sinister underbelly of royalty, nor does it ring with a subtle poignancy about how fleeting life can be. It's just a very ordinary modern times love story and while the lack of overt drama is refreshing, it also weakens the pacing.

All in all, if you havent read her ancient china novels, it's a decent read but if you have, it's rather boring. <<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

This novel is Mango approved.

What can only be called a shoujo Slice of Life targeted towards female audience, this is a sweet romance in which the sweetness comes from the romance itself. No baby bump sweetness or stuff like that.

We have a strong feminist female lead who prefers to live life as it should be. On the other hand, we have the Male lead who has had a huge crush on her for years before finally acting. His pursuit of her is pure vanilla and cotton candy.

Over all, this novel... more>> is just a lazy romance story which is a collection of such moments which you know can only be found in romance novels and books. The Male lead is scarily perfect and the female lead has a strong character which is steady. The side characters are agreeable.

So why not 5? For one, the female character is far too monotonous. Make no mistake, I am not against her ideals or anything but looking at her emotive skills reminds me of Dominique from The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. It is just that her character is not interesting enough for me.

Then again, I am not the target audience. Also, something that I have an issue with is with the repeated projection of the views of the author regarding feminity. Is feminism wrong? Absolutely not. But I would prefer a story over a preaching. The author could have done better.

Lastly, the way people address each other. This is probably a lost in translation, but I absolutely hate it when people call each other CEO Chen or CEO Yun. A CEO is not a doctor yo!!

UPDATE: Just completed the series. Still a 4 for me as I am absolutely not the target audience, I feel. A fairy tale ending for the pure shoujo series. If nothing else, this is a good short read for someone to get some sweet reading without thinking much. There is proper closure to the series. <<less

4/5 rating. Sweet short story. Different from all the ongoing stories. Recently all the stories I have read is just related to entertainment industry, fighting for name, fame and same thing. This is quite different. Especially strong character of female lead where she is independent, brainy and can handle her own matters. Male lead is equally strong and compatible to the female lead. It shows pure romance between 2 people. 1 star I m not giving is because, I felt something is missing. Just a small part. May be romance... more>> between the leads. Or else everything is super fine. No dramas, no unnecessary extras. Go On and read it. <<less

Cute 7 hour read...

a bit bland, but considering it is short, it is okay... a very light read and nothing serious, a typical love story... we don't get to see the characters from a lot of angles so there is no depth and are more 2D characters and the stuff they say needs to be taken at face value even though there is no basis... also the ending is also typical...
