Skipped ahead, but couldn't finish the novel. Here's why:

... more>>
Spoiler

Jiamen has a lot of elitist attitudes toward his current BF even though he's in an advantageous position. I felt like all the things his BF did or thought at the time were all very understandable, especially in light of the fact that he didn't read minds. His BF did have an inferior complex, but you can't really blame him as he didn't have any assistance and didn't grow up with protection from his family. So of course he would be more complicated and have more selfish thoughts. If Jiamin had been more vocal and explained things better to his BF, his BF might be a lot more understanding. The reason our other main lead, Jiashu has such an innocent personality is because of his upbringing. He never had to worry about money. He placed himself into challenging circumstances as dedication to his work, but all of that is temporary. He was never in any true danger; he even had hidden bodyguards, for godsakes, how much danger did he really have? I don't think Jiamin was very sympathetic to his BF's situation and wanted to toss him aside for someone more innocent like Jiashu because he was less complicated. That's his prerogative, because he prefers simple-minded people. But I couldn't detest his BF for his actions... it was all very human the way he reacted. For that very reason, this novel didn't jibe with me. I can commend Jiashu's ethics, but he is only the way he is because he had the backing of his rich and powerful family. He doesn't have to struggle and calculate every step of the way, unlike Jiamin's BF.

The novel is just to my liking. I think I have become addicted to the work of Fenglu Shuidai. First, Quickly wear the face of the devil and now this jem.

The story is about a rookie actor and his, shall we say, stupidly cute escapades. The other main lead is a seasoned actor who is mature, handsome and all round awesome, with the exeption of his dubious at the start of the novel taste in boyfriends.

Xiao Jiashu first enters the entertainment circle because his mother urges him to do so... more>> but he finds that acting is really his thing. Ji Mian thinks he is at the top of the world: great job, plenty of fans, awesome boyfriend, until one wacky carcrash renders him able to read the minds of people around him. Talk about eyeopener! The annoying rich second generation he thinks is useless turns out to be cavity-enducing sweet and the gentle and sensible boyfriend he adores - riddled with insecurities idiot. Hilarity ensues in all shape and forms and my personal favourite - face-slapping.

I totally hate you Fluffball! I got work to do, you know, and I haven't progressed much because of you! Like absolutely, undeniably, super-duper strongly hate you! <<less

From the Author of Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil comes yet another masterpiece~ 5 shiny stars!

MC is so adorable. ML is so dedicated to his lover. This is just full of fluff~

... more>>

Don't expect too much from the villains tho since this is not a revenge type like FoD. MC easily forgives and don't take grudges. It's the ML who does things for MC and always protecting him. There are face slapping moments but not really the focus of the story. It's a slow romance but both MC and ML were attached to each other in the earlier chapters. And MC was actually straight. LOL

Let's talk about ML's ex-boyfriend. Don't expect too much from this guy. If you're thinking of a green tea bitch, he's not really like that. He has some issues, he's a negative guy. I think his character was the most realistic? I thought he would be the main antagonist but nah... He's an annoying char but not the kind where you'd want to strangle him. He was so weak, man...

I actually expected too much from the villains maybe because of FoD where you just want to kill all of them (aside from the pianist guy - he was autistic okay?). But all of them were so mild--oh except for the last one. The last antagonist is the FoD type hahahaha!

My fave character aside from MC and ML, is MC's brother. Don't hate him. XD

My only regret is not being able to read the 1500 omitted words, darn it! You'll know if you read the raw. So heartbreaking... wuwuwu... <<less

Gosh, what can I say? It was amazing. The premise was so interesting that I mtl the entire novel and I don't regret it. The romance was so cute and fluffy, their interactions were so freaking beautiful I had smiles on my face throughout. I got really emotional at some points as well because of our MC experience. I'm so glad that there is someone to protect his smile. 10/10 would recommend.

Simply lovely. One of the first novels which hooked me from start to finish.

The MC is incredibly endearing and has a refreshing personality and perspective. The ML is gentle and not at all r*pey. When they do finally get together, both are very, very enthusiastic, which contrasts nicely with ML's relationship with a side character at the beginning of the novel.

There's a good balance between descriptions of filming and relationship development. Female characters exist, have personality, and have purpose other than being hindrances to the OTP. There's enough drama to... more>> be interesting, but not enough to be frustrating. In short, this is simply a very, very, very good novel.

The only qualm I have is that the ML's mind reading power, which is a pretty important plot device, is never explained other than maybe aliens. He also never tells MC about it, but even if he did, MC probably wouldn't care. And in the end, even I as the reader didn't care, because the plot points involving MC and ML's relationship development intertwined with their entertainment circle troubles was just so good. 10/10 would recommend. Also, relatively easy to read in Chinese, so good for beginners. <<less

I can't even describe how lovely this novel was. It was very heartwarming. Fenglie Shudai definitely does not disappoint. The gradual recognition of love between the MC and ML was very satisfying. There is not many cliffhangers or the usual dramatic scenes where the MC and ML keep misunderstanding each other. The MC is adorable and is definitely not an overly used insecure shou (uke). He has full trust in ML and is full of love and worship for the ML which is of course reciprocated by the ML. I... more>> think the fact that ML can read minds is a stroke of genius. It definitely eliminated much unnecessary drama in their love life. Overall this novel is just so full of love and it is definitely a feast for the soul. <<less

Wish fulfillment at its core, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Story follows Xiao Jiashu, an unfavored descendant of a pharmaceutical empire. The prodigious airhead returns to China to a cold reception from his family outside of his mother, a former award winning actress. She refuses to see him wallow his life away and introduces him to the entertainment industry, and he thrives while acting.

If you've read any of this author's other works, namely FoD, you know that the author isn't too concerned with a grounded narrative. The characters you're supposed... more>> to like are amazing talents/gorgeous/good natured while the ones you don't just suck. Emotional beats tend to be exaggerated and serve solely to highlight how cute/cool/talented/strong against all odds the protagonists are or the opposite for the antagonists.

The gimmick in this novel is that the ML, Ji Mian, was......
Spoiler

attacked by aliens... yeah...

[collapse]
and gained the ability to read minds. Why did this happen? Is there a follow up? Is he bothered by it outside of the impact on his daily interactions? The novel doesn't really care to answer any of that. The story focuses instead on the ML coming to terms with the fact that people's public and private personas can be quite different, especially since he works in the entertainment industry. Furthermore, the story only cares about how he can read the minds of only...4 other characters? The MC and the ML's lover at the start of the novel are the only important ones.

Character work is a bit inconsistent, especially for the MC. A lot of the setup from the beginning of the novel, namely his acerbic outer persona, is basically forgotten about. A large part of it is because we're in his headspace a lot, and the ML is constantly reading his pure, childish, and petulant thoughts, but pretty much everyone starts to view him as this precious goober. It's very fluffy. It's also really strange for me to see these personality traits in a character who's apparently an unfavored step-child business prodigy (who graduated from Wharton UPenn undergrad and grad program in 4 years) and acting prodigy, but that's wish fulfillment for you.

We could have had a very different novel if this premise was written by another author. The mind reading is intriguing, and the ML's boyfriend wasn't horrible by any stretch at first (he seems to get worse and worse just to highlight how amazing XJS is in comparison, but never to the point where you would point at him and deem him worthy of death). I'm not saying it's bad at all, since I read all of it and was entertained. It's just that everything in this novel after about 30 (?) chapters comes off strongly as dramatized fiction.

The relationship is cute. I'm not really obsessed with either of them. The relationship development is slow, but when it happens, it happens all at once. Once they decide to start dating, they sprint towards the finish line. All problems melt away. Marriage is swimming in their thoughts a day later. They have a desire to tattoo each other's names across their heart. Their PDA is on a whole other level
Spoiler

to the point where the professionalism they pride themselves on compared to other actors is basically thrown out the window and they're making out and serving dog food while in the middle of shooting a movie. the cast is supportive, but it annoyed me that they were holding everyone up and got away with it due to their wealth and status and talent. other characters could never.

[collapse]
The whole shebang. It's extreme, like the rest of the novel is.

All in all a heavy handed romance fluff with occasional drama. There's a significant niche for these types of stories, and this is one of the better ones. It's also surprisingly coherent through MTL if you wanted to knock it off your reading list asap. <<less

The ML actually was in a relationship in the beginning of the novel...... good thing that his ex wasn't a green tea bitch, but just an insecure fellow (inferiority complex).

[collapse]

The MC, lil'sapling, is the complete opposite of ZYS (QWFOD), not a little boy but a big man (with a 4 packs).... but even though he at first appears cool he actually is extremely cute in the inside! That kind of moe gap!! A big baby that make us want to take home to spoil~
Spoiler

@Arisana, are you sure that MC was straight? I'm sure that his 1º love was his childhood friend, and just like with the ML, he didn't notice.

[collapse]

ML is the loyal dog type~ it makes me remember that arc of QWTFOD, the husband frenzy XD

@Arisana Why would someone hate his bro?
Spoiler

That brother is a doting and slight flexible overbearing CEO~

[collapse]

There's also some family drama in the mix. Prepare your tissues!

I want a spin-off of mc's mother!!! She is so cool!! <<less

I don't know why but the feeling I got when I read this is that the MC and ML are truly fated and designed to be together. They're like two broken part of one thing finally meet and put up once again in piece, complimenting each other. I hurt my eyes and sacrifice a few brain cells to read in MTL, but really worth it, LOL!

One more thing, I really like the doting older brother of Xiao Dingbiang here!!! The overbearing president is actually a doting brother. That gap is... more>> really moeee and mengggg! Awaaeawawwwww if only the author could put more scenes for him and the cute rivalry acts from him and Ji Yan to gain more attention from Xiao Jiashu... sigh <<less

This is one of the best novels I have read. The plot is interesting and it kind of hooks you in. There is no cliche twists and turns and no cliche villains. There is a lot of fluff. I personally like the big brother character much. If you are looking for something with a pleasant and relaxing plot this would be a great choice

I read this mainly through mtl (my first time mtling a novel!) and it was pretty understandable.

MC is pretty adorable and sweet and straightforward, while ML is strong and possessive and loving.

There were quite a few arcs in the evolution of this relationship, with a lot of family drama and internet online escapades remniscent of some of the modern setting arcs in "Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil". The face-slapping antics were rather satisfying to read.

Overall, the relationship between MC & ML was very sweet and gentle and loving.

... more>>
Spoiler

Actually, they didn't even get together until around chapter 90 which drove me a bit insane. I kept reading and reading into the wee hours of the night and only went to sleep at 5am when they finally got together.

Also, in one of the final arcs (the second to last I think?), MC's mom finds out that MC & ML are together and reacts how a high strung asian parent who deeply loves their child but pushes them a lot would. She's pretty resistant to the relationship for a long while, even separating them and taking away MC's phone. It was a bit too uncomfortably realistic. She finally relents and is even happy to know that MC & ML are already married because at least this means they're serious about each other and that the relationship isn't a whim on either of their parts. If you don't want unexpected and realistic homophobia in your escapism literature, then just watch out for that bit.

A very fun read with nice drama and story-telling. The MC has a distinctive personality with a stiff facial expression and hilarious thoughts. The tragic past grips me a lot, too. I'm still only in the beginning of the series, but I'm looking forward to the comedy resulting from the mind-reading abilities.

Also, the MC's mom is a total boss. It's rare that I've come across a mother in a series that makes me cheer as much for her as I do the MC.

Very good! My mouth is full of cavaties!

The story is well written and fluffy to the core!

The characters are extremely realistic and the complexity of emotions are portrayed really well! Especially the mom! She didn't want the MC to go down the same path and it's totally understandable!

... more>> There's not much to say other than it was smooth sailing with a few bumps here and there but it is all solved meticulously.

I also applaud the MC because honestly with his past, I'd be blackened. It shows that he slowly coped such a horrible thing but fully overcame it when the relationship with the ML.

The mind reading was funny too. Especially with the Mc's wild thoughts, I don't know how many times I laughed and smiled at his vivid imagination.

13/10

All I can say about this novel are:

1. Too funny

Spoiler

The MC's personality is pure but he has a poisonous tongue which often led to a lot of misunderstanding about him which made me laugh ^_^.

[collapse]

2. Turtle -paced romance

Spoiler

It took 101 chapters until they become a couple. I was seriously worried you know.

3. But after they got together, the fluff will keep you smiling till the end.

4. Overall, I love it. :D

If you have read "Quickly wear the face of the devil", then you shouldn't doubt that this novel is also great made by the same author. The story is really nice, its base on modern & entertainment. ML here is very dedicated, protective towards MC & MC is soo adorable & gorgeous. Well, i'd say both of them are really powerful combined. This novel is full of fluff & a really tiny bit of drama but you will love it. So gooo and read it so you won't miss out... more>> the good novel.

One of the best BL novels I’ve read. I liked the cute moments the MC and ML had with each other and their gradual progression into becoming a power couple. I also liked the acting aspect of it and how they got to know each other more with each work they collaborated on. I love how the couple is so open about their love and don’t try to hide their love for each other. I loved this novel so much that I MTL it!

Spoiler

the emotion pierce through me, and I love the characters, including ML, although I didn't feel much for him on the early stages. He also have boyfriend, although I know it is necessary to move the plot and creating conflict, I didn't like him that much because he sure will hurt my precious baby sapling (yes, I'm a fan).

Little sapling is the kind pure, bright and optimistic character I love. He strive hard to reach his dream, and love. I just can't help it. He's so adorable when we see his mind together with ji Ming, and his backstory is pretty tragic too, and I cried really hard when the topic of his first love death come to light. There's hardship and a lit of muddy water thrown to him, but in the end, with Ji Ming, he can endure and overcome it all. Their love is pure, and I was sad that the novel ended, but I'm happy for their happiness.

In other word, I love to wait for the clear translation, and to read this again one day in the future. <<less
