If You Don’t Fall In Love, You’ll Die


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

With so many people in the entertainment industry, the most unpleasant thing for Ye Chen is Ren Jing’s hypocrisy. Ren Jing looks polite and amiable, but Ye Chen couldn’t listen to half a sentence he says.

Then one night, Ye Chen got drunk. When he woke up, there was a naked Ren Jing next to him.

Ye Chen: Son of a *****!

Ye Chen escaped, resulting in an accident and he died. Then, the time was like in rewind and he saw himself sitting in his car a minute before he died. After that, he heard a voice inside his head.

“Daily mission: kiss Ren Jing and reward after completion; the life point: 1.”

“Friendly reminder: If the life point became zero, you will die.”

Ye Chen: ! ! !

I regret putting this novel on-hold after 30 chapters because the rating somehow went from 4.6 to 4.3. Now that I finished reading, I have one word. R PEOPLE BLIND, HOW DID THE RATING OF THIS NOVEL DROPPED. This deserves to be up there with all the other novels rated 4.6. If you're 30 chapters in and you're thinking it's getting a little redundant/this seems forced/fake/getting nowhere/etc (like me at first, even though u enjoyed it). I will just say that the story will NOT fail you. I don't want... more>> to spoil you anything. But I promise this will be a story that makes you scream, hit the pillow and die from second hand embarrassment and how chaotic the situations are. Lemme emphasize, IT IS WORTH YOUR TIME. I came searching for fluff and comedic moments, and this novel resonates with me. The chaotic trio (MC and the gang) is one of the most memorable thing that happened in this novel. The story does a good job of having a main couple and two supporting couples (love them).

But if you're looking for a solemn, realistic, a lot of face-slapping, angsty, revenge, tragic fate story, you may exit. This is not that type of genre. If you're in, you're in for the fluff. Rest assure, it does its job and does it well. This is a story that'll promise you a good laugh (I recommend to not read this in public or people will think you're crazy from giggling) and (perhaps) some tears ;) <<less

I likes this novel very much. Others may say that the system is forcing MC to do things but I dont think so. I directly mtl this and dont regret it. It was easy to follow and the whole thing made sense. The actions between ML and MC is soo cute! I am extremely satisfied with this novel and recommend this to everyone who has time on their hand.

The translator has done a good job. Sadly the same cannot be said for the author. In the pursuit of a comical romance the author seems to have thrown things like common sense and logic out the window.

The MC finds out that someone tried to kill him but ignores it completely and instead goes off to do the systems illogical tasks. He's basically a doormat to the system. Even after finding out that it's been lying to him about the rules of the tasks he just lets it go after... more>> a couple of hours of a cold war and never bothers to question anything. He doesn't seem the least bit curious about something thats literally controlling his life and takes everything at face value. In this case cute protagonist = dumb protagonist.

It also makes me uncomfortable that the system is basically forcing him to have a relationship with someone he doesn't like. Sure the ML's in love with him first but it doesn't look like the MC liked him. After a couple of times the humorous misunderstandings caused by the tasks aren't quite so funny anymore. <<less

Really good quality, premium dog food right here! I used MTL to read to the end. Nothing too heavy or serious, just right if you want a feel-good read and to laugh a little. Very romance-focused story. The spicy chicken system seems determined to pit the MC at first, but you'll find out the reason later. _ (: 3) ∠) _

The side characters and couples are great and you get to explore more in the extras at the end. Really just makes my heart feel like it's been tied up... more>> in a bright red bow. I definitely recommend this one! <<less

It's frustrating to read but also amusing to read.

MC is most likely hated the ML simply because the ML is too OP that it hurts his eyes to watch the OP-ness.

Yet after a misfortune, he was force to do the embarrassing daily lovey-dovey task that caused the ML to misunderstand that the MC is simply a tsundere that also like him just as much.

What's great is that although the MC is from a wealthy family he didn't flaunt it although it makes him lazy to gain popularity and improve his... more>> ability. He simply went by with what's coming and didn't care for the rest.

The question is, why did ML, the Film Emperor, like the MC? <<less

Not mtl.

If you are a lover of romance novels. THIS IS A MUST READ. So well written and well rounded.

Not just the main characters, even the supporting characters are really fleshed out. I literally love everybody ? There's only one person considered as a villain, but it doesn't impact the story much.

... more>> FLUFF FLUFF FLUFF SO MUCH FLUFF IN THIS. Almost every chapter it gets thrown in your face but its never enough. And this is coming from me with 100+ chapters of the novel and still wanting more.

And just so you know, apart from our main couple, there are 2 others. I want more of them ?

Bascially this novel

  • Is maxxed out in love
  • Has characters well fleshed out and rounded. They are really given personalities and I fell for everyone. The mc's parents, grandpa, friends, even the system itself. So you get the gist
  • Pampering of the males x1000000000 like literally. Eg by our main man "Qin Cheng: anything Ye Chen says is right. "
  • Angst? What angst. That vocabulary does not exist in our main op (okay, maybe in the renqing's backstory) . But if you look to our 2nd couple, it's there : (which is why I wanted more sweetness from them, but I understand. It's not their story : (
  • Good plot. Everything has a reason. Like why the system is there, how ye Chen got revived, why the tasks have to be done, his (silly) reason for not liking renqing, and why renqing loves him ♥
I really do love this novel. I wished it had a hard copy version, I would really get it and read it over and over. <<less

The story is fun, engaging and cute. Ye Chen is a nice boy, and Ren Jing is a gentle and kind soul. There are different types of missions and it's a bit random, so that makes it exciting. The words used is cute quick and without excess, not too over dramatic and never too callous. The characters themselves are good people! They're easy to like

I like most of it, and especially that it made the dramatic afternoon-drama twist later believable, JUST a bit put off of threatening people to fall in love or they'll die. I'd rather they fall in love without the system. It's almost like there's too much focus and credit put on the system.

The main couple has a wonderful love, but supporting characters' personalities and stories... more>> are not really great. Maybe when you read the main couple's story will make up for it. Minor characters' chats are a delight though~ <<less

Forced to perform embarrassing acts to your “hated rival” in order to accumulate life points.... hmm screams secondhand embarrassment- I’M IN!

I’m a sucker for nonsensical, hilarious, fluffy plots. This met the criteria. I always have a bone to pick when it comes to Long Qi’s pacing.. this one came to an abrupt end & had me stupefied for a hot minute. I’m eagerly waiting for the extras because she sowed a lot of seeds about the side CPs & I want them to come to fruition! The story itself- just... more>> focus on the fluff & not the finer details. The twists aren’t that great & the climax was pretty underwhelming. Nevertheless a good novel if you’re just sporting dog food! <<less

It's just fun and amusing to read. Many dog food. Simple written and without angst. Hilarious and cute interact between characters.

ML isn't yandere at all, he is ordinary person. Works hard, good cooking and has love filter. He doesn't jealous without good reasons and don't hurry up in developing relationships (doesn't forcing for something).

MC is forced to be active because of system but he quickly falls in love and he really enjoy this. MC has two childhood friends and other people who make the story more interesting. They also... more>> have flashbacks and side stories.

Novel hasn't exciting plot, action scenes or dramatic moments, because it's slice of life and just entertainment reading. Story isn't boring and you can just rest of tragic deaths or difficult communication between people. <<less

I love the story, but the MC is annoying. Its cute at first, but after a while it stops being cute. I also don't like the forced aspect, since the MC is given tasks that he has to complete daily with other bonus tasks, and if his life points hit zero then he dies. On the ML's side, he thinks this guy loves him, but the MC actually dislikes, and low key hates the ML in the beginning, so I kinda feel sorry for him. I absolutely love the ML,... more>> and everything else aside all the misunderstandings are so funny. I might edit this review after I read more chapters later. <<less

It's a real pity about the translation though, I think it's MTL, but it's still kinda understandable. Honestly, I just loved the synopsis and story too much I had to push through haha. It's very similar to Don't You Like Me?

Although the MC is a lot less likeable cause I mean he's kinda useless lmao

But he's funny hahaha

I just finished the main Story so I had to write a Review. I never really write reviews but this story is far too good for me not to encourage others to read it.

Its a cute and funny story plus its light hearted with a really small touch of Drama so if your looking for a light read definitely try this.

Yes the System is like that for a reason and gosh the plot twists and bombs that are dropped on the second half of the Novel are incredible and the... more>> plot may have slowed down in the middle it soon picks up again and you'll be in for quite a ride.

I dont really hate the naive and innocent MC and the ML is 10/10 in my book its really hard to find a really loving ML that doesnt turn into a possessive psychopath.

I know it may seem annoying at first because of how it starts but I promise that its a great story once you get past the start and the plot begins to take shape :)).

Yes the Novel will explain when and where the ML gets his feelings and why the MC is reborn and why everything is like this so dont worry and read away~ <<less

It was really sweet and cute. The dog food is everywhere. There's no much drama, I almost think the drama is nonexistent. The MC is quick to resolve his feelings. And I like how the ML always pampered the MC.

The reason as to why the MC is reborn is explained nearing the end of the novel.

It's a quick paced romance and I love it. The misunderstanding is quick to solve. Overall, I'm absolutely satisfied and digging it.

Since there's already quite a great reviews ill just add some icing. This story is so cute, at first of course you'll be pissed off by the MC but that's his character and it was molded like that, after a few chapter it will gradually be better though like, totally better that almost every chapters it will feed you dog food (dog food: flirting in front if you or something like that) but yeah

5 stars

Highly recommend to those who like systems and fluffy love stpry with extra bl from supporting... more>> characters <<less

lots of sugary sweet moments and lots and lots of miscommunication, assumptions, and improbable timing leading to more confusion all around. It got a little confusing part way through between all the pairs/ partial pairs/ fake pairs aside from the main couple; the guy who loves the MC, that guys assistant who loves him, the guy who is pretending to be a couple with the guy who loves the MC, that guys ex boyfriend, etc. still, there was all that fluff and sweetness to counter the other stuff, and a... more>> bit of family intrigue and tragedy. This story is all about romance, fluff, romance, fluff, angst, fluff, romance and fluff. <<less

Current view: hilarious fluff surrounding dense people. Enjoyable read, there were a few lines and areas that I had to go over again but all in all - nice short sweet chapters. Low story so far but some potential for some development however should stay like a meringue (light, fluffy, sweet, with just the bit of chewiness). Hopefully this will continue to be translated for me and others to enjoy the sugar :)

I have to admit that I was stuffed full of dog food by Ren Jing and Ye Chen. They were so sweet that I almost couldn't bear it.

This is a feel-good story that's just a major fluff-ball that it's, at least personally, almost impossible to hate. The interactions between ML and MC were so so so sweet, and may I say that ML was literally one of the kindest, sweetest, most considerate, and gentle MLs I've ever had the pleasure of reading?

Likewise, MC was also adorably naive and pure-hearted. At... more>> times, I thought there'd be some strong, dog-blood drama between him and ML, but it never came. MC didn't allow it to, and thanks to his strong intuition, it never did.

The stories of the side couples were pretty angsty themselves, so I'm quite glad that they were able to witness the fruition of a fairy tale love, which was ML and MC's.

It was a very enjoyable read that you can feel at ease with! Rest assured that there will be no dog-blood plots between MC and ML.

Regarding the plot twist...

  • Spoiler

    I cried, okay? I cried! I didn't expect it to be like that, and seriously, this line?


Ye Chen had not the slightest doubt about Ren Jing’s love towards him. He thought of another thing and asked, “If Ren Jing doesn’t love me anymore, then the missions will stop being generated?”

Death System replied resolutely, “Yes.”

Ye Chen’s eyes widened. “Then he will die!?”

Death System, “That’s right. I had cautioned Ren Jing on this, too.”

At that time, Ren Jing had laughed and said very calmly, “Just let him die, then.” He said ‘him’—referring to the version of himself who didn’t love Ye Chen.

Ye Chen felt like crying again.


Their love was so sweet that I'll probably re-read this over and over again! It was just, chef's kiss!

A super tooth-rotting sweet fluff story that is meant to make you feel all warm in your heart. Very interesting idea for the plot but the main point the relationship so I would say this was a mindless no-plot story. Definitely one of my favourite fluff stories though!

The main story was so freaking fluffy it just makes you go all "AWWW" inside and warm in your heart. Very light-hearted funny and sweet. The friendship between the 3 characters was also funny yet sweet at the same time. Gu Xi and... more>> Ye Chen really have the most ideal type of friendship; the kind that makes fun and bullies each other in normal times, but protect and shield in times of need. So!! Damn!!! Sweet!!!

For the main couple, things just keep happening between them that's really cute, but not very realistic especially initially, it's dumb x protective, so don't think too hard when you read haha. I really liked the back story of the relationship though, and it does give some meaning to their actions, but that was only revealed much later. That final twist had me tearing up in sweetness too.

Overall, it's not something I will reread in full again, simply because such "mindless" stories gets old very fast once you reread it, but I definitely definitely recommend reading it once for that sweetness fix!!! Might come back to reread parts of it just for a small dose of sweetness though ;)

(I read the extras in raws because the MTL was soo bad so keep that in mind if you're reading the MTL, you probably won't get even half of what's going on in the extras)

On a side note, the extras for Gu Xi were so freaking angsty and I kept crying my heart out. Loved him too and wish the best for them. Would have liked a full story for him too but well, I guess ending it where it did in the extras made sense too. <<less

Heeeeyyy this was a good story with aMC doing mission for him not to diexD his interaction with the System was funny too. ML is really doting and too much sweetnesss in the air~ Even their friends are suffocating haha

There's more to it than meets the eye. With a celebrity tag and Our CP Backstory. I cried on some chapters. You'll also be hooked /criii with the other couple story.

Very recommended to read, will not mtl this, not in a rush waiting for Crysanthemum to finish
