Jin Wang Dotes on His Concubine


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

Yaoniang was the concubine of Jin Wang in the last life, but she had only been doted on for a few months before she died.

After her rebirth, she decided to live safely and protect herself. So she would do a job well as a wet nurse and never pursue luxurious life.

However, it never occurred to her that stern-faced Jin Wang who only did things without discussion in her last life would now take initiative.

Everyone in the world knew that Jin Wang had a concubine which was doted by him as early as he lived in original place. After entering the royal palace, she was even more prestigious and Jin Wang only doted her in imperial harem.

There were many rumors in the folk villages about the concubine. The only thing that was well known was that before she entered the royal palace she was a widow and it was said that she also had a son.

During the time Jin Wang became the emperor, he was diligent and managed the country well. He worked hard to improve his governance as a wise emperor. However, he was frequently crazy about the concubine, which made people criticize a lot.

And one of the most absurd things he did was to recognize the son the concubine had as his own kid.

To this, Jin Wang personally came out to refute the rumor:
“It’s my own son.”

I enjoyed the novel. They’re a really cute couple. The story was tied off nicely at the end too. Xiao bao bao is so cuteee!

My take on Princess Jin

... more>>

In my perspective, it seemed that the fact ML caught princess cheated and had s*x with another woman after their wedding, really scarred him, rather than him being homophobic. It was mentioned that he’s deprived of love and really looking forward to the marriage but was juked when she cheated. For princess Jin, most of the characters were accepting of her being gay when she came out. Like no one was even concerned. And it was told later on that she was the one who was disgusted, disgusted to be marrying a man. She cannot accept him either. So there’s no friendship that some readers push for.

Once in a while, I come across novels like these: highly rated but are absolute tr*sh.

It's okay to have a scum of a hero and a s*upid ditz for a heroine but the story has to be done well, otherwise, you end up with something like Jin wang dotes on his concubine.

Spoilers ahead:

... more>>

Prince Jin is bought up in the palace accustomed to all kinds of women but for some reason is randomly attracted to this super hot bangable nanny. And the nanny has no remarkable traits whatsoever other than her 'bumpy' body which the author mentions in every chapter. I truly felt sorry for Prince Jin's wife who is a lesbian and is actually clever. But instead of having a friendly relationship with her (she bats for the other team, what can you do?) he behaves as if she owes him. Isn't that hypocritical?


What really spoiled the novel was how the ditzy heroine had a second chance and did nothing different to change her life. She followed the exact sequence of her past life, made excuses and depended on Prince Jing. If he loses his interest in her, she'll end up miserably again anyway. What a waste of rebirth. <<less

First of all, I think the tags should be changed. It's not Time Travel and Transmigration at all. Instead, it should be Reincarnation and Second Chance and also ... more>>

it has Multiple Reincarnated Individuals, so spoiler hehe


Imo, this is one of the better historical novels mostly because it doesn't have any of my dealbreakers: no op leads, no harem/ characters all falling over the lead, lead is unrealistically skilled/knowledgeable.

The FL is definitely realistic. She's from an ordinary background and her skills are all explained by her past experiences. She's not amazingly cunning or such, but it's nice to see her trying and to grow in her own confidence.

The ML is cold and suprisingly isn't all-powerful all the time, needing other's counsel and help. He also doesn't like women due to some traumatic experiences in his past and it was one of the more interesting plot points, too.

He caught his main wife with another woman. This is why they hate each other.


And also their son Xiao Bao is adorable and

also reincarnated and just wants to be with the mom he wasn't able to meet in the last life. Even though smart for a kid, I like that he doesn't have much ability beyond using his baby charms. He's as much of a cunning person as his father and helps along the plot without anyone realizing it.

The three of them are one big happy family.

Overall, I personally loved it and binge read it. Thanks to the translator for sharing this novel. It's a real gem. <<less

Really good novel but I'm removing two stars because ML is a colossal d*ck. I mean, he has serious issues. The fact of their society is that the women have to fight for their survival by getting his favor but he brings back people and marries them, then abandons them, imprisoned in his backyard - which is cold violence really. Like, if u know you can't do it then either don't marry, or make sure to fully disclose it and only marry women who are okay with it giving them... more>> the assurance that they can live well even if they don't have kids etc instead of this whole pretense.

And when they absolutely have no choice - eg when princess jin's father wrote to force her to get pregnant or accept her stepsister into the harem, or when Hu concubine tries to get a son - if they try to attract him in any way he reacts SO VICIOUSLY!! He yells at them, thinks they are acting like brothel women, that they are 'dirty' and 'disgusting', sneers at them as being 'hungry', 'animals' etc. Ridiculous, much? They're literally your wives, is it so abnormal of them to try to seduce you?? The only way they can have any sense of security or guarantee of life and wellbeing is to get a son, okay. Because you didn't give them any assurance otherwise. Even if he HATES them, this sort of resentment and the words he says are too much!! [Esp considering how utterly skewed the power dynamic is!]
Even though the women are the 'villain' characters I still can't stomach this. But we as readers are supposed to be okay w this as it is some kind of proof ML is 'clean' and only moves for the FL

With all his being disgusted w his wives for trying to sleep with him you might think he's a pure monk - HA! In the past life he treated FL as a 'toy' only to vent, only using her for s*x. Every time. And it was a lot of times. And in this life he keeps sleazing around FL, almost one of the first sentences he tells her - his daughter's wetnurse for god's sake - is 'take off your clothes'. Bluntly ordering.

I am SO glad he suffered after finding out she died, deserves it. <<less

This novel is by far my favorite novel among the works of this author. I have completed MTL-ing this and I must say every chapter got me hooked.

Yes this is a cliche story of rebirth and starting over again but what makes it different from the others is that this is not all about revenge. Yao Niang just want to live well for her baby and she actually did not go to the 'I wanna kill you all' revenge. Actually the story does not solely focuses on her side alone... more>> but you can see the other people POV on why they have such actions in the novel. I like that not all the villain goes to the destruction path and no turning point and redemption in their lives. I like the humor and the internal dialog of the characters especially Baobao. Most of all I like that it has the right amount of hot stuff between Jin Wang and Yao Niang (though it's very painful to read in MTL lol).

This is a worthwhile novel to read. Some may disagree but it all goes down to preferences.

Thank you for the wonderful translation. I hope that you will continue to translate this.

How should I describe it? It's very realistic. Unlike those clever and witty transmigrated/reincarnated girls in most historical light novels, the FL in this one is a common woman who has trouble seeing through the schemes of the inner courtyard and just wants to keep her head down, do a good job, get paid and get out. She doesn't want to become a concubine or a man's bed toy; she just wants to start her own business. It's such a small and unassuming ambition for us in the modern world.... more>> In that way, it is just a little suffocating to read, as she spends her time fearfully holding her breath and tiptoeing around her masters as they smile and plot against each other.

The ML is best described as "good... for the standards of the era". He's thus far quite difficult to read, even to the reader who has the benefit of objectivity. <<less

There were so many 5 star ratings that I thought to give this story a shot, but I'm sorry I couldn't bear to finish after like 3 chapters.

A lot of my dislike for this novel is due to the writing style and translation quality. It's aggravating to read. Sure, you get it, but it's like trying to drink soup with a fork... Like every time the soup falls back into the bowl, you scream a little. Also, the English sounds awkward but it's not like English is every translator's forte.

My... more>> impression of the FL is that she's not very bright, weak and really hot. The ML doesn't seem all that likable either. Also, annoying relatives and filial piety traps.

I couldn't take it, but maybe you will. A lot of other people seem to like it. Just don't expect perfection... <<less

It's frustrating to see a female-oriented novels being so misogynistic and this novel is particularly nasty.

The internal harem conflicts the most appealing aspect of this novel. It is interesting to see a realistic portray of the hierarchy in a harem and seeing the balance of power within the harem swaying between the contenders. However, the author ruined it with the deep misogynistic themes. Indeed, the schemes of women are truly heinous and they deserve to be punished for that, but the author seems particularly determined to portray the female characters... more>> in the worst way possible by nitpicking in specific aspects of their identity (pretty disappointing when you see some intricate schemes, but it devolves into a slut-shaming fest)


When the ML married Consort Jin, he repeatedly tried to approach her for s*x. He obsessed over the fact that many men pursued her and he was gleeful for being the one to marry her. He treated her as a prize. The ML had called Consort Jin "repulsive" and declared that he would never have s*x with her because she is a lesbian.

The ML called Side Consort Hu "dirty" for using seduction tactic (implicitly pointing to her association with a brothel).
He humiliates them by giving them the cold shoulder which signifies to the entire household that they have fallen out of favor (their status plummets when this happens).

The ML is very petty for punishing the women so severely for these kinds of offenses


The author is so determined to villainize the women that we see ML contradicting himself in his bouts of condemning the women. The ML calls his wives dirty for trying to have s*x with him, but he himself is guilty of using his authority to pressure the MC to have s*x with him.

When the MC kept refusing his advances, he took advantage of her dire situation to make a deal with her. The ML offered to raise the MC's status and give her a huge sum of money.

Offering materialistic benefits for s*x is prostitution yet the author tried to portray this as love because the smut was consensual.

Pretty ironic consider he shamed his wives for trying to get those exact same benefit

Another shady aspect about their relationship is the MC's baby. The author reveals that the ML is the father from the get-go, but from the author's notes, it seems like the author intends to portray it as a romantic coincidence

The MC was intoxicated and was completely unaware of who the father was. This is clearly drug r*pe, yet I get the impression that the author intends to downplay this incident as a romantic coincidence (a coincidence that the man who r*ped her is the love of her life and that it's not r*pe because the rapist is her love interest)

I have not actually reached this point, but that's the feeling I have based on the shady nature of the deal they made.


Another big downer is how superficial their relationship is, esp considering how it started. I've reach ch 59 which a quarter of the novel and the MC and ML has yet to show any chemistry outside of s*x. Sure, there are moments when he goes out of his way to help her, but when you think about what motivates him to do so, it's pretty depressing.


I kid you not, in the early chapter of this novel, all the ML constantly fantasized about MC's big breasts (yes, he has a breast fetish which becomes more obvious later on in the novel).

For some inexplicable reason, he only likes MC's breast and the bodies of every other women repulses him. (Wtf? Is her breast really that magically more better than everyone else's?)

Every time the ML visited the MC, it was always to have s*x. He never care to make casual chats. (Tbh, the MC's personality is too boring for them to have any interesting conversations and the two have yet to show any common interests outside of sex)

Compared to the author's earlier works, I think the author has regressed in writing when it comes to this novel. With each new book, the heroine's IQ drops. A ditzy heroine can be funny and interesting to read about (for example, the MC in Unruly Phoenix Xiaoyao), but not with the way the author writes her. I was getting bored with endless loop of ML being aroused by the sight of MC breastfeeding baby and then MC and ML having sex, and I stopped reading this novel shortly after its... more>> revealed why ML is "traumatized" towards other women and why he treats his wife badly.

He sees her having s*x with another women and that disgusts him so much that it traumatizes him. That lasts until he gets mesmerized by MC breastfeeding his daughter.


Edited to add: I checked the original publisher's site and corrected the year on NU. This novel was written in 2017, not 2019. I take back my comment about the author regressing. <<less

I've never felt so revolted after reading a novel. This is just inacceptable and abusive unhealthy and tr*shy relationship built on the ML forcing himself on fl, and the latter being a s*upid weakling who doesn't know how to resist or use her brain, or more accurately, maybe she didn't dislike it in the first place and was just in contradiction with herself. I feel like I swallowed a fly and sullied my eyes with this tr*shy story. I only see abuse and r*pe, weakness and idiocy, I don't see... more>> any love or doting. <<less

Update June 2021: The new translator, Travis Translations, is doing a great job, and their translations are much easier to read. The previous translator's links don't work anymore, so Travis Translations is re-posting the older chapters (by the previous translator) when they can, with a few edits. Hopefully this will make the older chapters easier to read. The listing is messy, but kudos to the Travis Translations for trying to clean up and post the initial chapter translations.

Original review: I read up to chapter 34 then MTL'd the rest of... more>> the novel. Yao Niang was a favoured concubine of Jin Wang when she was poisoned by a jealous rival. She is reborn into her earlier self, but still ends up hopelessly entangled with Jin Wang. Yao Niang isn't OP, she's just a simple, kind woman who's trying to survive by avoiding her original fate of becoming his concubine and dying for it.

The first 7 chapters are confusing, partly because of the translation. Just to clarify, Su Yao Niang is from the poor Su family,

but her oldest sister-in-law Zhu hates her. Meanwhile, Yao Niang's own loving sister Su Hui Niang has married into the wealthy Yao family (no relation) and had two sons, so her sister takes Yao Niang to live with the Yao family. Except that the spoiled Miss Yao schemes against Yao Niang out of jealousy, and Yao Niang ends up having a child out of wedlock. The domestic situation worsens, Zhu tries to sell her as a concubine, and Yao Niang can no longer live with any family. To avoid being drowned for losing her virtue, Yao Niang leaves to be a wet nurse at Jin Wang's estate just like in her previous life. Her baby will be raised by her loving sister. But this time she is determined not to become Jin Wang's concubine.


The first 100 chapters are mainly about their romance, the next 100 chapters is more about the imperial princes, and the last 27 chapters are a long happy ending. The story was well done and there are a series of mini-arcs to carry the story through. There are smutty scenes.


The story has a lot of happy endings. Yao Niang had a son before marriage, but it's actually Jin Wang's. Jin Wang's daughter isn't his. Jin Wang only sleeps with Yao Niang. There are many schemes against them, but Jin Wang triumphs against them all. There are multiple transmigrations/rebirth, including their very cute son. The epilogues were really good, especially since it visits the alternate timeline and a cute future timeline.


I'd recommend the novel, even after reading almost all of it through MTL. <<less

One thing that I really like about this novel is that the although the MC was born and has a precedented advantage and a greater control over life, you can still feel the insecurity and the followed helplessness warranted by a not-so-supportive family (except the good-natured sister and brother-in-law) which makes it very realistic and honestly really fresh. She feels grieved and the denial is there but eventually she accepts her present circumstances and tries her best to stay level-headed and optimistic. Again, a very realistic approach (unlike some... more>> MC's that are ever so bubbly, no hate but they sometimes seem too caricature-ish) . Overall, I like the premise and look forward to the development and pacing of the story. I really wish for the MC's personality to stay consistent. Of course, there is always some room for character. On a side note, so far the supporting characters and cannon fodders actually do possess a personality and aren't flawed just for the sake of being evil, there are subtle hints dropped here and there that justify the reasoning behind their acts.

A recommended read for all. <<less

First of all I would like to thank the translator sama for introducing and translating this novel for us❤❤

MC has a tr*sh family ... more>>

who as soon as knew that MC lost her innocence tried selling her off as a concubine.. this was the reason why MC thought that being a wet nurse would be better than living with such tr*sh ppl

Idk the reason as for why ppl have given low ratings... this is actually quite an interesting novel... only 4 chapters r posted by now... there's absolutely no reason to judge a story on basis of just 4 chapters...

if u r here then don't leave without giving this novel a try... don't judge the story on basis of ratings...i m absolutely loving this novel❤❤❤

Will update the review after reading more chapters <<less

Don't go into this story thinking that the reborn individuals know a lot about what happened in their last life or you will be disappointed cause they didn't know much.


Don't look for a strong MC. She has her moments but mostly she's timid. And not too bright. She's definitely not my favorite FL, but the fact she tries a bit to change her fate doesn't make her completely useless. Just wish she were smarter!


Don't expect the ML to be likeable, but he's not a total d*ck. He's an ancient male which makes him a little cold, but he doesn't sleep with a bunch of women unlike what the FL believed. So don't look at everything on the surface because he's not a total bad guy. His ignorance and inexperience with personal relationships shows, but instead of speaking about it he keeps his mouth shut which can be ANNOYING!



Don't expect the rebirth of the son to make since. He's too young to actually do anything and he knew very little in his last life. He kind of took away from the story because SERIOUSLY, SHOULDN'T SOME ONE BE MORE SKEPTICAL OF A ONE YEAR OLD THAT SMART?!



Don't expect the story to be great, mostly family drama, harem drama, royal drama. And of course, the central theme is about having a male heir (rolling my eyes)


Even the smut could have been better!

Also, you might want to wait for the translation because mtl can be confusing. <<less

If what you're looking for is a crafty heroine who plots and schemes then this isn't the story for you. Yao niang is a commoner, a simple woman who isn't the smartest and isn't really used to the backstabbing that goes on in the inner courtyard. She's not that ambitious. All she wants is to do her job, make money, get out and raise her son. She tries her best to keep her head down and not involve herself in the inner drama going on. Unfortunately our ML can't stay... more>> away from her once he notices her.

Some may not like the fact that our heroine isn't really a go-getter who players multi-dimensional chess but I liked her. She's realistic. We're not all super geniuses who can out scheme others. I find her to be a normal person of her time who doesn't want the drama. I really enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed her perspective and it was a fun break from the Shen Miao's (although I love our empress). If you're also looking for a different more normal heroine then I would recommend this novel.

The one thing I hope is that the new translators will upload the missing chps 24-36. <<less

This story leaves a sweet taste in my mouth. No major drama and unnecessary misunderstanding. I love how the ML is not cold and ruthless he loves MC wholeheartedly.

I MTL-ed the majority of this story.

My favourite part is:

... more>>

When the officials saying MC is a jealous woman because they want their daughter to enter the palace. The ML said,

"You are you, don't change, don't deliberately please, don't worry about meaningless things, least you became miserable."



The ML hated their son at first, because he thought he is the son of MC and a salesman.

But later he thought that Xiaobao looks so much like him that he feel so s*upid.


Their love was shown in their interactions no explicit confession and the likes, inline with ML taciturn nature.

Definitely a must read <<less

This is a novel worthy of its name. Novel. ?? The story building is going smoothly for now. MC does not have any special skills or any syatem to help her get through her life obstacle. Which is more realistic than some know it all MC.

Overall, the plot keeps you entertained. Translation wise, it is better than novel like "beautiful farming wife" where I get frustrated what the hell is going on. Though, there may room for improvement, as of now I don't mind the tler work. It is good... more>> enough.

So I am excited about what this novel has to offer. Its a reincarnation story where the FL doesn't have any revelations or special insight before her death. Currently she doesn't exactly know who are her true enemies or even friends. I like the set up so far where she has to navigate her life but with no special cheat (I mean except living reincarnation) and truly live and survive for her child. There is still a lot to look forward to (have not glimpsed the ML yet) but... more>> I am very expectant. I really hope the author shows more interactions with the kid. I am usually saddened at rebirth novels because of the kids that never come back in the new life. Hopeful and Expectant.....

I have very mixed feelings for the novel. I'll start from the easiest - translation quality is rather average, up until the new translator (chapter 24).
Now for the plot: I have no problems with some elements of the concept. The MC is not very brilliant, has no particular talents but in a way I like it. For once, when she is in a bad situation she cannot save herself with whatever talent (plot convenience) she has - no miraculous medical skills, hidden second ML to the rescue, extraordinary talent... more>> to save her. It makes it more realistic - I can believe that she would be stuck in the same situation as in the first lifetime, because with no particular talents and no background there are no many options for young mother of a new-born without father in the picture. So generally, plot works for me, harem intrigue is a bit much, but I've seen much worse, characters are rather logical.
The main issue I have with the story is the ML. In the story we can easily see that MC is unwilling to get into relationship and, to avoid spoilers, let's just say that I cannot accept the ML's behaviour and I cannot read them ending up together as a happy ending. To be completely honest I empathize more with other women in the harem (despite them also being faaaar from perfect) than with his behaviour. Maybe he becomes better later, maybe his behaviour improves but I'm not sure if I can work through the current chapters. <<less

Took off two stars from ML's personality and confusing translation.

The FL is a typical ancient Chinese woman, the historical aspect of this story -while unclear due to confusing translation and unreliable narrator- is superbly detailed, the romance is unhealthy and so-so. The only interesting things are the intriguing court drama and the rebellion.
