I Refuse to be a Supporting Character


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

Gu Jin crossed into a novel as the supporting character and best friend of the main female lead, Cheng Xin.

Cheng Xin was frequently surrounded by men of status and quality. As Gu Jin was the female lead’s dearest friend, she doesn’t mind settling for the leftover meager soup if the female lead chose to eat the meat. The two sisters believed they’d enjoy this friendship for a lifetime.

But just as she was ready to latch firmly unto Cheng Xin’s golden thigh, she discovered the body she crossed into had memories of future events beyond the novel’s plot, finding out that her marriage would end in utter failure.

The female lead, Cheng Xin who often quarrelled with the male protagonist would head over to Shao Chong for comfort even though Shao Chong was married to Gu Jin. And after several incidences, Gu Jin advised Shao Chong to have a sense of propriety as her spouse but he told her not to think too much about it, claiming that he only maintained a pure friendship with Cheng Xin.

On the day Gu Jin was kidnapped, her good husband stayed by her cousin’s side and accompanied her to the hospital.

When Gu Jin transmigrated into this new world and learned of the truth, she did not wish to waste this new life as a supporting role for her cousin as the previous soul had done. She’d not live a life as a spectator in someone else’s love story. No. She would be the protagonist of her own romance in this new life.

Another modern novel I was expecting to be somewhat better than most. Usually, I'm not too demanding of these types of reincarnation / transmigration novels, they tend to be cliché and not very deep, but they can have sweet / cute moments and even be funny sometimes. They make for pretty good entertainment when you aren't looking for anything deep.

BUT, that's only if the romance is acceptable.

In this story, the ML is someone who s*xually assaults her and goes on to get 'revenge' on her in petty and annoying ways... more>> just because she 'dared' to fight back when he was under the influence. Like wtf was he expecting, to allow herself to be groped by him lmao?

So yeah.... and seriously, I'm starting to question how readers can rate stories like this with 4 / 5 stars when the ML is clearly s*xually abusive or just abusive in general. If it were someone other than the ML, they'd be up in arms, demanding for the guy to be destroyed, but since it's the ML he somehow gets a free pass? <<less

Uuuuu I love this! A very satisfying read if you like juicy revenge and plots where the protagonist overturns others' preconceptions of her. I keep checking to see if it's updated 😭

This is very good novel, I like it very much. Reading this make me really sad for original MC. She was treated as object by her best friend and her ex husband. I hate this selfish female lead and disgust ex husband. Female lead know that ex husband in love her and even introduced him to original MC to destroy her life. Her ex husband only caring for female lead. He turn indifferent and uncaring to her. She was tragady killed, her unborn child was killed too.

MC was transmigration into... more>> friend of female lead. She know her fate and marry life was tragady and sad because of female lead. She was treated as object by female lead and ex husband. She change her life by breaking up with this ex husband and cut ties friendship with female lead. Female lead is idiot, spoiled brat, selfish, crybaby. She turn into mature at end after losing everything. Still don't like her. Her ex husband get memories of first life, he trying to redeemed MC but she reject him in public. How dare he trying to destroy MC and ML life. Male lead eat vinegar lot.

I like how sweet MC and male lead realatinship is. Male lead is so decent, rich handsome virgin guy who fall for MC. It's good and sweet romance novel.

Recommend This Novel. <<less

Pretty standard romance, not bad but also not that great. The way the MC and male leads falls in love is pretty cliche, ML: she dared to kick me in the nut, awesome! She's my true love and obsession from now on! Hands off her you guys! FL: he's a creepy guy at first, but hey he's rich, handsome, young and he helps me slap people's faces!

The story itself is fine but there's some unnecesary side plots going on which feels it adds nothing to the story (particularly towards the... more>> end of the story, after they resolved the original premise of the novel). The story is strecthed for a bit into some trivial characters plot, in which some of them didn't even appearing in the previous chapters, giving us some weird comeuppance for a supposed villain which never actually done anything so bad yet to the MC in her current reitiration other than mild annoyance. We also got a random plot point appearing and immediately resolved at the last chapters which never even mentioned to the readers before it, so it feels like 'is this necessary?' So instead of using the end to show us the final fate of the actual important characters, we got unimportant side characters and randomly appearing characters got their comeuppance. <<less

It's a sweet and relatively calm novel. Even though there's such big difference of standing (family power) between the MC and ML there's no crap such as "you are not worth of him!", after all the ML was already nearing 30 but he was in Hogwarts, so it was better than nothing lol

The original host was really pitiful, but don't worry! Everything is fine when it ends fine! The original host included ;D

Also, this novel is MTL friendly~!!!! You won't lose your brain!!!!!

I'd rate this 2.5 if I could. It's what you'd expect of a meh quality transmigration-into-a-romance-novel novel with your standard pretty and reasonable FL and domineering ice-cube-who-can-only-be-melted-by-the-FL ML.

There are a few cute and funny moments, but most of the time I wasn't really into it. I don't think the author really resolved the original conflict between the FL, original FL, and original second ML. They pretty much just get kicked to the curb with no epilogue. Meanwhile, the FL and ML go through a kind of random life-threatening plot orchestrated... more>> by characters who aren't really introduced early in the story, for a reason that is kind of randomly explained at the end of the novel.

The ending focuses more on supporting characters who were barely relevant than on any of the main characters or original main cast. However, it's a short and easy read. <<less

The male lead is hella creepy. The dude s*xualy assaulted her. And was mad when she kicked his family jewels. I get it he was under the influence, but instead of apologising he harasses her again. WHAT THE ACTUAL HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU.

The story is really creepy and gross.

This novel was a pretty nice one to read. It contained the right amount of fluff, the mystery, romance etc. I liked how the antagonist mainly the original FL was able to change in the end for the better. Although it was pitiful for how she ended up but she really deserved it. Others may call ignorance a bliss but once it’s taken away from you like from the FL it’s not as blissful as you once thought it would be. Also, I’m glad that the MC was able to... more>> make a friend instead of the usual lonely MC in modern setting novels but what annoyed me the most are the two guys mostly mentioned in the original plot. Such @$$holes they were for treating women like a toy.


ML eventually left the FL after causing a problem for his family. It totally felt as if he just used her body to satisfy his “missing desires” by thinking she was unique to him. Then later on he starts going out with another girl and gets engaged then goes back to the FL for forgiveness. Srsly, an asshole that needs to be gone.

Then theres the 2nd ML AKA the orig!H’s husband who just used her as a stepping stone to get closer to the FL. Later on regrets losing her by noticing too late that he f**king f**ked up by ending the phone call when his pregnant wife was kidnapped and killed


The ending was alright but it felt super rushed that it lost the good atmosphere that was built up in a flash. But I was super happy that in the end


We get a POV from the real Gu Jin and how she got another chance to live her life after witnessing the current Gu Jin fix it. The most exciting part was that the long forgotten awesome dude that likes her finally has a chance!!!!! *Fangirls*


I’d rate this 3.5 but since there was a siscon and the guy that likes the real GJ was given a chance then 4 <<less

I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars for this. Because I feel like it was slightly better than okay, but idk if I would give it a "good!" All in all, it's a decent rendition of your standard "rebirth type stories except this is a transmigration/rebirth story or something. Main couple was what you'd expect from the main couple, but I was rather disappointed with the MC's original husband and her good sister. There was strong potential for a really good plot resolving those relationships, especially since ... more>>

her original bae actually had fallen in love with her in the original track line and was super torn up about her death and all before being was reincarnated into this second life later on

Instead, we just got to see the MC get mad, yell at them a bit, then promptly forget they ever existed. Also, the story behind the ML's family didn't really make sense- it was sort of thrown at us in the last couple of chapters and we were supposed to believe that was the reasoning behind everything.

Long story short, the plot setup would get it a 4, while the actual resolutions/executions would put it slightly below or at a 3. <<less

Surprisingly, it was not bad. Although, it has like a dark theme and I liked it. Hope there's more...


I like the setting of the female led. Being kind, sweet, and crazy at the same time. And also her regaingin her past memories. I have this sort of interest towatds reincarnations/transmigration fics so I liked it. Especially the dark past where she had abortion, uwu. That was sad, but I felt like that was something that made her stronger.
