LOL! I just realized that romance is not one of the genre and it's actually tagged with romantic subplot. And before I was like, "why there are sooo few love interaction between the MC and ML?" Now everything makes sense 😅.

It is an interesting novel I can say. Takl a whole lot about showbiz and like as in the tag, a romantic subplot. So if you're hoping for the love story from the beginning till the end then, this novel is not really for you. But do give it a... more>> try 😉 <<less

For those looking for romantic fluff, I'd advise to stay away. This is more focused on building a career, about putting your all. It starts out with some funny premises, but with each work release, it makes you think.

Also, ... more>>
Spoiler

the ending is pretty open. It's not so much of them getting back together. I mean, there's hints about it. But it's still very much open to interpretation, I feel.

[collapse]

Still, it's worth a read but not all too memorable a work.

EDIT: Forgot to put the star level. I'm an idiot. 4/5 cause I'm not as satisfied with the ending, but that's not much dogblood or active face-slapping, which makes me HAPPY. <<less

This review might feel like a mild spoiler

The female lead was a woman who had descended from her 'throne' and retreated behind the curtains, standing there to be a virtuous wife. -Which made her and her husband's communication delayed instead-. Meanwhile her husband was a founder of a big game company, he rarely returned home and he barely had a good chat with his wife.

This novel is a fluffy one, the angst is less than I expected. The romance is.. Not much, just like another review pointed. I think... more>> the novel focused in the female lead's development. And honestly? I love how the writer developed her character, from someone who thought that her 'kindness' and silence should've made her husband realized her dissatisfaction, to someone who finally realized that communication matters.

In business, well, what can I say? She only wanted to bankrupt her husband because she dreamt that she would get divorced and she hated the thought that her hardworks and efforts would be enjoyed by another woman. She built an entertainment agency -or company? Idk- to burn her money. But, to the contratory, her companny became a big one.

Anyway, it's an enjoyable read, and it deserves a high rating.

PS: I had a good laugh when female lead's employees reacted to male lead

5 stars for being an enjoyable read, but I'd give it 3 for romance, haha. In the end, it's not really a novel concerned with romance, so I can't fault it. It's about a woman building an entertainment company with the strange idea of losing money, but actually ends up helping a lot of people and creating a good name. It's interesting to follow along with her new projects, the stumbling blocks, and the results. Personally, I wasn't bored. The love story takes a backseat and only pops up occasionally,... more>> so for readers who value romance more, this novel isn't going to fill that need. It's a well-written novel and I was entertained from start to finish. Definitely recommended if you want to read something light and heart-warming. <<less

if you want to vaguely know the plot, look below. I read up to chapter 50 something with MTL and then I just gave up and dropped it. Its all just entertainment sh*t with MC making terrible financial decisions but coming fine because she’s luck incarnate and also everyone thinks she is a saint and wants her to succeed.

... more>>
Spoiler

MC has a dream that her rich husband will cheat on her with his new secretary and based on this DREAM, decides she will ruin him and then divorce him. So she sets up an entertainment company and starts buying scripts that she thinks will make net losses. If the director wants more money, she says go for it. No expense is spared. Unfortunately all the scripts she picks are unpolished gems and she ends up making money instead. Woe is her.

Meanwhile, he workaholic husband who literally never sees her starts noticing she isn’t obediently waiting at home for him anymore. Somehow, despite never making time for her, he’s super in love with her, so he texts to come home. And then proceeds to do nothing else about the relationship for the next like 40 chapters. It’s ok tho, I’m pretty sure he’s only in 2% of the story.

Oh and it turns out that the dream she had, was sent by the secretary who has a system that was trying to help her steal the rich husband. Except rich husband is totally devoted to the wife he never makes time for so the secretary fails. Honestly I have no idea why that was even part of the plot. Like why couldn’t the MC had just decided to divorce her husband/ruin him for legit reasons, like him taking her for granted and not being a present partner???

oh and they only make time to actually get a divorce like 40+ chapters in. At which point the ML has gone full crazy and gives her a huge part of the shares in his company. Also he decides he’s gonna win her back, but something tells me all he’s going to do is text her puppy dog faces and never show up in the plot.

And that’s about where I gave up. This is an incredibly boring story with no romance and a cringey MC. Also, it made me so angry that she didn’t care about what ruining her company would do to the people that worked for her. Like she had actual employees who would lose their jobs if she failed. And directors and actors who may be negatively affected by box office bombs. Just because she does end up succeeding doesn’t mean it’s okay to play with people’s livelihoods like that.

What else can I say, even the main premise is utterly flawed and s*upid. And the translations are basically split unedited MTL of the raw. Even I can MTL better than that.

The author simply don't understand basic finance nor marriage in general.

It's mentioned in the description, but basically the MC aimed to spend a lot of her husband's (and hers, because it's a shared asset) money because she honestly believe he's gonna divorce her and have an affair. From that alone you should notice the problem.

It baffles me how the... more>> author wrote MC as a honest to god s*upid person. I mean, she aims to spend all their money in THEIR joint account. It means she's basically aiming to make herself bankrupt too 😂😂😂

Anyone would know that if someone's preparing for a divorce the first thing he/she'd do is securing their personal assets, which means basically transferring money/properties to their name. Nobody is s*upid enough to mindlessly throw off money without reason, and it's THEIR money, not his husband's alone.

I know the MC's basically a golden koi and everything she touched turned to gold, but the main point is she aimed to make her husband AND HER went bankrupt, which is s*upid since she can just open a personal bank account and transfer the money there or but some properties/investments on her name.

Of course the MC's (or rather, author's) s*upidity doesn't stop there. She just decided to give up on her marriage and chose to divorce from the get go because of a dream. She didn't even confront her husband, at all, nor make any effort to build their relationship. The husband only worked and worked long hours and all he got is a cold shoulder, HE DIDN'T EVEN CHEAT.

I'm extremely sure that the author is at most a high school student who doesn't have the slightest idea how finance and marriage work.

ISTG this is one of the s*upidest MC (and author) ever. <<less

I had read this novel up to 79.

The flow of the story was all about how epic fail the MC plan on making her husband to bankrupt. It had no deep romance, but the novel romance was had a different way. For me. I give 5* because for me, the romance flow was unique. In the end of the novel you will know what was ML and MC love story was. The ML character was he had ideas and emotionally cold. He always looking forward but not to look back... more>> what way he made. He can't denied that he had no feelings from MC if he had not why he always tell his secretary about the gifts for MC, only realised that he truly deeply love MC when she was already lost, it wasn't something like but it was when he turn his head back to look for her but she was already far behind and until she's gone.

At the beginning MC was full of patience, support and understanding to ML. Until time pass by until love lost its sparks and MC had a dream. Maybe she got her dream when the SL*T got near the ML and she had a golden finger cheat (i haven't read why she got that dream on the novel). After a week of observation and organising her dream thru reality, she choice an other way. Instead fight her right as a wife like the dream was doing, she chose to give up on ML and start a new life with slight revenge, hahha revenge in a funny way. For me, thingking and doing to make your husband bankrupt was an act of revenge haha.

The SL*T ready did alot, other than ruin his/her image the both ML and MC views, seduce to ML amd more. Well, she actually succeeded the MC and ML got divorced. Because MC didn't follow on that book/cheat the SL*T had and plan. The ML was full of MC from the start until the end. Well if MC follow that dream of her fight her right as a wife and love to ML, no doubts the ML will be disappointed and push to that SL*T.

When ML finally realised what his treasure was already lost. He ready made a brainstorming in how to chase it back.

Well anyway, they said second chances are always sweeter that the first one. And I do believe in that. <<less

I don't understand why this novel have so high ratings and reviews...

I'm going to be honest, this type of story it's not anyone's cake, the story telling, the writing style, the edition, are not the best but at least they're not horrible... Even so, it have so many flows that make me impossible to keep reading.

The story goes so slow!! The author doesn't explain how time goes and it's so unreal that the FL expends more than 6 or 1 year (it's not even clear) without having any contact with... more>> the ML when they're married, for God's sake hows that possible?? The communication between those two it's the worst that I have read in my entire life, the development it's so boring and slow that I couldn't even care to read more...

I have read this expecting something "fluffy" like a lot of reviews her says, but it's not even close... In the first chapters it's so interesting how she approach the entertainment industry without knowing nothing and everything goes so smooth (she's like a living Koi) but it's really boring how she never afront any complications, finding everything and winning everything cus, u know, she has a really goood, goood luck.

It's entertaining, but not enough, like everyone says... The characters lack of a lot of personality... It was a waste of time, really.

It u have time, give it a try, but it's not something that make u hold ur belly of how fun it's the story. <<less

It is not a Romance story but more like a comedy-drama-showbiz story. Our MC is smart, talented, savvy lady who helped her husband in the business but later decided to concentrate on home. But due to her dream, she decided to make her husband bankrupt! But no, she won't let anyone say she's throwing away money, there has to be a legitimate excuse for bankruptcy! Thus, entertainment industry!!

MC always wants to lose money in a way that seems like she tried her best, but was unsuccessful. And thus, even though... more>> she picks up projects that have bleak prospects, she tries to give her best support and of course, in the process, spend as much money as possible, leading to a lot of humorous misunderstandings! But she's like a lucky charm, all projects in one way or another end up giving her more than she spent! And gain a high reputation for both herself and her company!!

Romance takes a very back seat - the ML thinks that making money and buying gifts is all he needs to make his wife happy, and doesn't really recognize her importance. Only after MC starts working late and staying out, that he realizes what he's been missing, and then, it's a redemption story for him.
Spoiler

A 'perfect life' system' tried to attach itself to ML with a lucrative offer to win over the MC - but ML didn't give it a chance, as he wants to get his lady back by his own efforts, and not because some system forced the MC...

I actually skipped a bunch of stuff while reading this novel. Why? Cause the story was too bland and filled with what I personally thought, filters and unnecessary things.

The novel was very boring to me and there was nothing interesting about it.

I also think the MC is dumb. If she really wanted to get rid of all her money then she shouldn't had join the film industry but donated all her money to charity instead, I can't stand novels where it's " I'm gonna do this but not actually do... more>> it". <<less

The summary is a good description of what is happening but at its core this is a story about a woman rediscovering happiness. Basically FL and her husband were young lovers who worked really hard to become rich and successful (and somehow reached that point in their 20s). FL then retired due to overwork. Their marriage slowly went cold and then the story begins as the summary describes and FL starts trying to waste money. She obviously fails and continues to become successful instead but a recurring theme seems to... more>> be that her efforts to waste money help people who were crushed by their own pursuit of money. Various directors and actors who are being crushed by the rat race of the entertainment industry are saved by her and do their best to make her successful as thanks. At this point the story is all success and face-slapping (I mean that in a good way. It is very positive and refreshing.) but the FL is starting to come out of her shell and her husband is trying to make things right, so I have hopes for a happy reconciliation.

Edit:

Lol. I wrote a summary and forgot to leave a review. Basically this is a shallow but positive story. It feels good to read if it is to your tastes. No deep meaning or plot but it is well written enough to be entertaining. Like a tasty snack instead of a filling meal. But sometimes a snack is what you are in the mood for instead of something heavy. <<less

First of all, this novel is quite interesting and I really recommend it! I mtled it to the end, reading every chapter without skipping for 3 days straight (each chapter is quite long).

This novel describes a successful woman's journey - first beginning with disappointment, but then finding a lot of reasons to strive forward. It is mostly about entertainment industry, mixing many different characters together to create a relaxing story.

The only real downside - not much romance... I would have really wanted more romance, but the main couple was very... more>> sweet in their own way. So there's that =] <<less

I haven't read past chp 35, but as of right now, I think this is a beautiful novel.

Not for the reasons you might think. Transmigrated MC wanted to drive her husband into bankruptcy and then divorce him as a form of punishment. Her cold unfeeling husband isn't as cold as he seems. Just highly insensitive? Its like it'll be a love com thing with these two.

This isn't why I think the story is beautiful. As a millenial, we are at the working age now. Our dreams are often crushed by... more>> the turbulent waves called reality. Being rejected. Failing to reach expectations. So you try to search for another dream. Another go... And then rejection comes once again. Till you fall into a kind of mediocrity. Just going through the motions so you could fulfill your responsibilities. It's not the same for everyone. I know. but most of us are like this. I think this story, at least up till where I've read, is beautiful. If we could actually pursue our dreams without holding back... I begin to think.

Thank you very much for sharing this story wownovel. <<less

[Please note that I MTL this novel so there may be errors]

A light and enjoyable novel to read. I personally find that benethe all the humor is the story of our MC slowly finding herself, her happiness and new beginnings.

... more>>
Spoiler

Beneath all the comedy is the love story of a woman who has lost her sense of self slowly building herself back up and learning to love and put herself first as well. So it is a love story, only ML and MC love plot is secondary to MC learning to appreciate herself and her ambitions, and I find that that is exactly what made me enjoy this even more.

The relationship and romance between MC and ML is not spoken about in depth but from passing comments, thoughts and memories you find that they did and do love each other. ML's character growth is just as paramount as MC's and it was adorable seeing him try to win back MC's affections.

[collapse]

The comedy was also my cup of tea but it may not be as funny to others. The story pace was a bit slow but still very much enjoyable.

This is a novel that I gladly recommend to those who want to pass time and are searching for something that's light and doesn't have much drama. <<less

Fair warning to incoming readers: this story is less focused on the romance aspect and more on the entertainment business. If you're looking for a heartrending story or one filled with fluff, better luck looking elsewhere. With all that said, this is actually a decent story. I personally liked the fact that there was little romance (not non-existent, there is virtually no male-female lead interaction in the beginning half of the story and more towards the latter half).

After becoming heartbroken, Lin Meng starts to invest in the entertainment business in... more>> order to waste her husband's money and make him go bankrupt except... all of her projects turn into successes. While there is face-slapping in this novel, it's all in the entertainment business. This is something I can appreciate as in other novels the protagonist face-slaps their family, mothers, love rivals, sisters, and so on until it becomes one huge mess. There was no one character that I found too annoying which is a huge plus (there was the love rival, but she was barely in the novel so I didn't have time to garner any hate for her). Every character has their own flaws, and there's a slow but steady character development in terms of the leads and a few supporting characters.

While this story is a decent read if you're bored, it's also not some genius work and has a few cons of its own. The main problem in this story is the lack of feeling and emotion. While in other stories there might be some cute interactions, some dramatic arguing, sad or heart-thumping moments, in this story things just... happen. Most of the characters and especially the female lead are bland and I feel little emotional connection to them.

This story is one in which I might come back to every so often, however I wouldn't lose sleepless nights over it. <<less

This is a good slice of live story. The MC is lost right now. She has a boring marriage. The MC and ML were in a stagnant time in marriage. They could really lose it if they keep ignoring each other like this. So I think it fortunate that the MC get the dream. So she can go out of her comfort zone. Not everything in her live is about her husband. She could find something that she lost when in her married live.

The ML learn importance ... more>> of his wife that he took for granted. Sometimes you miss something that you love after it gone. I think he understand it now.

And didn't she said that before, she wanted to lose her money in good way... She just didn't know that in the end the money that she lose will come back again to her

Also, please do read the genre... There is no saying that this novel will be Romance... This Novel is really good drama slice of... more>> life

This is mostly a comedy of errors, showbiz novel with a dash of romance. Short novel with fast pace. I love showbiz novels, the journey of turning from zero to hero and thankfully, in this one, the audience is not shown as idiots who just sway with a single post of the 'bad guys' on weibo again and again. Translation is okish, but thanks for the efforts.

The MC is a very capable woman who was initially partner with her husband in starting their very successful business but then retreated behind... more>> the scenes to be a virtuous wife. She is super tolerant and understanding, so never complains to husband when she feels lonely or unappreciated. Her ideal life comes crashing when she dreams that her husband will divorce her soon, after cheating with his secretary.

So although she knows he hasn't cheated yet, she realises they have become distant long ago. In a fit of temper, she doesn't want them to enjoy her hard earned success and embarks on a mission to bankrupt the husband, by investing in entertainment industry. She doesn't want to look s*upid and has some ideals so she only picks the projects she finds worthwhile, but is sure are not commercially sellable.

I quite liked her interactions with her entertainment agency colleagues, the journey of how people succeed in their long lost dreams with her koi luck, turning every job she is sure will be lost cause to major block buster.
Issue is,
Spoiler

But also, here is the problem for me. All her people respect and love her, idolise her and think she is giving sincere suggestions for the betterment of their project, which is filled with their hope and heart and soul, while she is doing exact opposite. From her perspective, she is giving ideas that are sure to fail, not caring what it will do to the careers and self confidence of so many people who look up to her.

[collapse]

The romance is very less, the husband trying to win back his wife but not every ML can be overbearing super powerful BOSS, this guy is a sweet simple man who, while super man at job, doesn't know flowery words and who gets jealous at her various fan CPs quietly in his office. But once he realises his mistakes, quietly supports her from the sides, happy with her own moment of glory with her own achievements. Also, the MC realises her own mistakes, communication gap that she also never tried to bridge and accepts her faults as well, just that she wants to move on. If not for above issue, would have given it a 4. <<less

I found the first few chapters quite weak and incoherent in terms of introducing the MC and the scenario, but I kept reading and before I knew it reached the latest chapter.

If you’re looking for detailed plot lines and complex characters building and development, this is not the novel for you. This novel is very straightforward and lighthearted, so if you’re looking for something to pass the time and can get pass the first few chapters I would recommend it.

The MC wants to spend all her husband money, and opens an entertainment company. Hoping to blow through all the money she invests in “bad” and expensive projects but all of them turns out to be successful. She just wants to spend money but caused everyone around to idolise her. What kept me reading this novel is the pure interactions between the MC and the supporting characters, and the premise for the tv shows and dramas the MC invests in is also quite interesting to read. So far there is very little romance and interaction between the MC and ML, but surprisingly I don’t mind.

So good I MTL'ed it all the way.

The journey of Lu Meng in taking back control of her life is one I really enjoyed reading throughout.

I wasn't expecting things to end where it did, but in retrospect, it was a good place to end this story, not a romance focused one and you can really look back and see her growth.

A relaxing and joyous read!
