I Became the Male Lead’s Adopted Daughter


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

“I’m going to adopt a child.”

Duke Ferio Voreoti’s impulsive decision shocked everyone in the mansion.

Not only did he make her his daughter, but he also gave her the name of a ‘beast’ that only direct members of the bloodline could receive.

“Even as you breathe right now, I’m earning money.”

“It’s confidence, not arrogance.”

“My face really does have its advantages.”

The most arrogant father in the whole world, and

“I love muscles the most. Let’s get muscular.”

“Show me your thigh muscles! Your butt would be even better!”

“You’re nothing but a flower if you have a calm personality…”

his corrupted(?) daughter.


“I will give his excellency the information he wants most.”

“Information I want most, you say…”

“You won’t regret it.”

…A stepmother(?) with a strange secret as well.

I adore this novel, so much! The father-daughter combo is fabulous. It's completely different from all the other novels where the daughter is usually pretending to be good so they don't die or the daughter has to be pitied. The MC isn't afraid to speak her mind and the father is very nonchalant about the rearing of his daughter. The shamelessness between the two has no end. It is HILARIOUS. The best part of it all is her unhealthy obsessions with muscles. Brawny muscles. Not gonna lie, who doesn't? -Wink... more>> wink nudge nudge- <<less

I mean it's alright, but frankly I was hoping for slightly better?

Imo the situation of the "Fang" wasn't actually done too well. I get that author is trying to show MC's character as very unnatural, beast-like even, but it felt ridiculously overdone. Like with the orphanage people it felt like she would just think up ways to torture them during her mealtimes. I know she was abused, but as someone whose previous life was in the 21st century (I assume) it doesn't really make sense to fall this far? Idk... more>> it felt forced, and the situation with the tutor too. Honestly, the tutor was a bad person, but she wasn't THAT bad...

Anyway, the storytelling just feels kinda awkward. I know the thing about her obsession with muscles is supposed to be comic relief, but it also feels overdone.

It wasn't terrible though. To each their own! I'm sure some would enjoy this. <<less

I'm loving the relationship dynamics between father and daughter. The vicious remarks of the girl are simply hilarious because they both talk as if it was a matter of fact.

For now, there's the foreshadowing for a step mom, but still not present.

The translation is top-notch and the story itself is amazing. Leonia and Paul's father and daughter relationship aren't like your typical one. Leonia isn't afraid to act how she wants around Paul. And PAUL IS SUCH A CARING AND HOT DADDY!!! Their parent/child relationship is the best I've read so far. It's just too good.

It is a good read from the start. Readers will like the story if your into this kind of novel (father-daughter relationship) and stuff. Good to recommend.

But the translator's blog/site (JT) has been deleted even though I read it until ch. 6 but when ch. 7 came out the site can't be access, I don't know why. I'll rate on how I see it so it kind of make someone down when it stop translating. I hope someone will start/ take it again.

Note: First time to review

Edit: It was... more>> continued by new translator, Misslatte (Thank You). It's good translation by the way though some mistakes about the names. <<less

so far it's interesting. It's written in simple manner, yet it left strong impression for me as a reader whether from character personality or the plot itself.

from the title it's obvious where she came from, but it still feels fresh because how it's written. It makes you want to read more.

the story itself is absolutely a 5/5 !! Its truly a super lovely novel and a more feisty MC !
the daddy/daughter relationship is super super cute and wholesome !! This would be one of my favorite novels in this particular trope

keywords are would be, , ,

... more>>

it was brought to my attention that the author exploded in a racist-filled, anti-muslim rant on twitter a while ago (it was spread on bato as well).

please take that information as you will, and also know that liking the novel (it's pretty well written and compelling to read !) doesn't necessarily mean a person agrees with the author !!!

(it's the complex thing about separating the artist and art or in this case, the author from their writing) some people can deal with the separations and others can't.

if you are more of the former kind who can separate between creator and their works then by all means give this novel a shot !! I found out after completing the novel, so I felt a bit, , , not great abt it (same thing happened with when I read the entire h*rry p*tter series and found out jkr was a terf, so this review is mainly for the purpose of informing the people who might feel uncomfortable supporting this author !!)



ppl keep asking me how I read it, the instructions should be somewhere in the spoiler discussion ! I was able to complete it bc I had a friend who was also reading it help me read the rest (she basically gave me a summary of each chapter since I cant actually read Korean), so I cant help from there : ( (good luck n have fun reading what you can !

A heart-warming story about a father and a daughter... I guess you Co ld call it like this. There are also many others undertones to it. Tragedy, check, drams, check, comedy, check, world-building, check, badass father who abuses authority as a noble

.. Check. A slightly psycho ... more>>

dunno about you, but coming up with methods of torture, even for scumbags makes her psychotic in my opinion.

but still really adorable and quirky daughter - check. Romance? Nope. Thankfully no romance so far.

It's a good read, give it a go. The translation is awesome too. <<less

Because of his friend's words, Duke Paul Voreoti decided to adopt a child but despite his handsome face, his glare is a natural child deterrent. Until he met a beast-like child whom he decided to adopt and name Leonia.

I have to admit I love their parent-child interaction. She is such a muscle-con.

I'm waiting for the plot holes to be filled. Like why is she so violent. Who is she (the transmigrator) etc.

Looking forward to hopefully more chapters :)

The father-daughter relationship is too cute! The daughter is brave without being rude and simply so mature! Almost seems as if -

I think she transmigrated to this world. That's why she is so friggin smart


The father is clumsy with his words and actions but is already showing signs of being the possessive/ doting type daddy lol.

Waiting for the stepmother (?) To show up haha.

TL work - Super excellent!

UPDATE: The author is islamphobic and racist :/ Please take this review as a review of the author's work, not the author.. Also, there's a manwha so please support the artist!

It comes with the whole package: cute father & daughter relationship moments, revenge for people who wronged our adorable daughter, more REVENGE + mentioned future torture, and the best thing about it is that none of it is forced.

It's all perfectly genuine (even though their talk of revenge and torture is a bit concerning). She isn't afraid of speaking her... more>> opinion, and he will let her speak her mind without threatening to kill. So can I say that reading about this this cold murderous daddy bonding with loud fiery girl who he adopted on a whim was not what I expected to really like since it's been done dozens of times over. But I guess I'm the loser who keeps on falling for the SAME TROPE, because it was really nice. At least, in my eyes.

It's more of a story I would want to read if I'm having an off day and don't really want to think and just want to unwind, than a total masterpiece. But nevertheless still really enjoyed it. One thing I thought was really cute (probably found it cuter than post people) was the milk candies, like aWWWWWWWW~

Also, just want to point out that the translation was really nice too, kept me hooked. <<less

it really is a sweet but funny story. Would recommend to read it.

and I wonder when she will be able to call him dad rather than old man. I wonder what his reaction to this would be.

hope the translator will be able to continue it

I like the family relationship alot!

He treats her so much better than lots of other manhwa dad's do at first (looking at you Claude O_O), he wants her to act her age and enjoy living as a normal child even if she is regarded more mature, because then she grows up too quickly (even though she is mentally older).

I love how ... more>>

even though he is her uncle, he still wants to be called father,

that they are so similar and get along so well, going through good and bad times and how he can be shocked and concerned for her even with his cold personality (tsundere~). <<less

I really like how the story plot makes me anticipate what the characters will do (specially to both the ML and fl). I am looking forward to see the relationship of the father-daughter grow.
