Mason was a mercenary, until the day he died on a mission after being betrayed by his unit.

At the same time, there was a Hollywood actor named Haley Lusk. While famous as a child actor, as an adult, he grew addicted to drugs and sex. With a nasty personality and sub-par acting ability, Haley was disliked, yet he still confessed to Noah Raycarlton in front of the world causing him to be hated by most people. Then one day, he suddenly had a heart attack and died.

Noah Raycarlton is the young CEO of a big company. Though not a celebrity, his mother was an immensely popular actress. Due to his good looks and kindness, he is loved by everyone.

Mason thought he was dead for sure, but he woke up in the hospital full of people he didn’t know. They told him that they were his family and called him Haley. He was so confused, and people told him that he had a heart attack due to overdose and died for a while.

He realizes that his soul went inside of this Hollywood actor Haley Lusk, and he decides to live a second life. But because of things that Haley did, he has a difficult time with Noah and other people. Mason finds out right away that in his old life, he knew Noah as a child.

Well, it had a lot of promise at first. But then as the novel went on, it started to go from no, to oh no, to NOOOOOO.

Everyone in this novel is so f*cking damaged beyond redemption, I felt like I was reading the end of The Hunger Games again. The antagonists are dumb as hell, the side characters weren't very interesting, and the main couple ended up in some toxic unequal co-dependent relationship. There's a lot of smut, but it's pretty painful to read.

... more>>

ML nearly dicks MC to death right after he was discharged from the hospital with a f*ckin gunshot wound, causing his wound to open up again, and then what? MC proceeds to go back to filming/running in the rain until he collapses??? I felt like collapsing just reading it!


Also, what the hell is up with the bodyguards in this novel? You'd think that they'd be helpful in protecting America's Darling, but they let ML suffer through two near kidnappings and one actual abduction and were absolutely useless in preventing MC from being sexually harassed. <<less

This is so similar to the webtoon At the End of the Road but like, the mercenary/superstar action version of it. Either way, I loved both. This was an engrossing, badass, suspenseful, binge-worthy read.

This is so fun! The MC is so cool and I love his personality!

After he went inside Haley's body, everyone hated him, but with his charming personality, he make everyone kind of fall for him. They had low expectation of him, but he breaks that expectation haha. Noah hasn't come out that much yet, but I can't wait until they encounter again.

I want to see some more or 18+ stuff lol until not they just gave me some sample of it

I want to give 5+ to this novel, but... more>> they only have the stars up to 5... haha

I highly recommend this book if you love action and cool protagonist personality!!! <<less

loving this One! It's promising, intriguing.

it reminds me of True Star, but this MC can take more control of his new life than the other MC can. Well, he used to be a mercenary, if he didn't live that way it would make no sense. one update isn't enough. There's action, violence, horrible relatives, mystery, sex, stalkish people xD. Why wouldn't I want to read more? uhm yes, this series seems like r-18. enjoy!

Ex-police officer turned mercenary, when a mission goes awry and the MC is killed, his soul is reborn in the body of a drug addict/washed out actor. After being thrown in front of a camera the very next day, the MC is forced to learn how to act as Hollywood's most despised paparazzi fodder.

Compared to his body's previous owner, the MC, just by being a 'regular guy' is already enough to shock the people around him. The story flows together pretty seamlessly, with lots of humorous and dramatic moments. The... more>> ML is a bit of a yandere with deep psychological scars from his past.

The author's writing is very solid! Kudos for an author who is not a teenager and has a mature worldview (or maybe I've just been reading too many CNovels).

Though the mysterious past was predictable and a bit over-explained, the rest was pretty engrossing. The epilogue is awesome. It continues right after the main storyline and I love the extension of the movie acting because the MC is ultra cool. It's nice to see a MC holding his own on equal terms with the ML.


Some seem to be dissatisfied with the MC, mentioning that the MC is weak and that he was some kind of genius mercenary. I'd have to say I completely disagree.

Mercenaries/ex-soldiers/whoever are regular people too (though most novels seem to romanticize or forget this fact completely). Just because you might be good at one thing (running missions in Afghanistan) doesn't mean if you were thrown into a completely weird situation (reborn into a drug-addict actor's body) you'd be able to suddenly become OP using your 'military experience.'

In the story, MC said he was tired of everything; the mercenary life, the killing, the missions. All he wanted to do was retire and open a coffee shop. No human can be hyper-vigilant 100% of the time or badass 24/7. His reactions and fatigue were completely reasonable.

The MC is also very competent. There's not a single situation that he didn't successfully control, minus the situations with the ML (which was explained and made sense as the ML is his weakness).

There are stories with over-the-top MCs who just dominate everything and everyone around them just act as background to make them look better. Those types of stories are also fun to read, but I am glad this is not one of those stories.



Also some mentioned that the MC was reborn into a stereotypical 'uke' body who is weak and prone to tears; this I did see as well, so they have a point!

A couple things that made me feel better about it: at least half of the male characters do also cry, ML included, and as for physical fitness, it would have really been too boring if the MC didn't end up in a newer weak body.

The new body is completely the opposite of his original body, and it's the contrast that adds interest. If the MC had been reborn into a similar body, readers would be wondering about the plot point of having him die in the first place. Much more interesting to describe how he still felt like he was a stranger after being in the new body for months and having to exercise to make himself stronger. It also made the ML's recognition of the MC's soul much more touching.

Plus, the MC was still able to trounce all the bad guys despite his 'weak' body, so I think the author did a convincing job of writing it in a way that didn't make it feel like it was done for the stereotype.

Written and translated well enough that its hard to put the novel down after you start reading it. Main issue for me is the characters. I dont see the romance at all tbh. Basically Mason a mercenary dies and gets reborn into the body of a slutty gay drug addicted actor Haley. The Ceo ML admires the original Mason cuz of a past event and his disappearance/death brings back trauma. He has been stalking/watching over him until his death but the thing is he doesnt actually love a Mason in his original manly body (he actually says this) and only starts becoming cliche horny and pushy ML after Mason is reborn into the slutty girly Haley and thats what sticks out for me, its like he needs him to be reborn into the body of an uke before he starts getting ideas of fking him until he faints?? I dont get it at all. After ML discovers Haley is actually Mason he starts being extremely pushy and arrogant as the rich guy he is but I dont see any actual romance between their personalities or ML liking Mason for who he is other than his saviour or for his new slutty body. Basically all of Masons newfound sluttiness is blamed on his new body and I dont even remember the ML telling him straight out that he really loved him all he does is praise his slutty body and im like so do u like mason or his body which actually isnt even his?

I wouldnt mind if this story was the all smut no plot type either but somehow its stuck awkwardly in between? Like it takes ages to clear up the misunderstandings and all we get in the beginning is Masons wet dreams in which you dont rly get whats happening and ur like so do I fap here or not?

Some ppl might praise Mason alot for being an uke with an actual brain but in the end thats rendered useless in the face of his new body which makes him so weak and slutty and the only basis for his relationship with ML.

Tbh story could have been so much better if it was about Mason in his original body rather than forcefully pushing him into a new body just so he could fit into the typical uke box of being girly, slutty and ofc shorter and less fit than the ML like its some inherent requirement.

Alright, this is a hard one... I enjoyed the MC, author did a good job with him. I was unable to drop de novel thanks to the protagonist! I wouldn't say he is that much of a "realistic" character as everyone is saying but, well, the guy is reasonable at least. Liked how smart he were and brave, wow, you got my heart MC! However, as the story progressed, it felt as if he was getting dumber, weaker and more submissive... Like, ok, I get it, your new body is... more>> very weak, but what's with that change of personality? He kept apologizing when it wasn't his fault, but his character is the think-what-you-want-I-don't-care type, so why are you apologizing for something you didn't do?! So, I really enjoyed his character at the beggining and whenever he acted in the movie my heart went crazy, he was so cool... But in the end he became so boring ugh! At some point I was just asking myself 'how do you live like that? I would kill myself if I were you' because he felt so dull and unhappy... Like he didn't have a goal in life. In the end he was basically risking his life just because he was bored, and it ended like that!

ML... I hate him. Rapist, obsessed, OP! He and the MC didn't even had chemistry! Basically, ML was a crazy crybaby who got obsessed with MC and MC, who was weak to him since he saw ML as a cute child, couldn't refuse him. I just... It really did seem that even if ML liked him, MC just thought of him as a child. Like, if the ML didn't talk about killing himself if MC wasn't in his life, I doubt MC would agree on being with him! So forced. MC doesn't seem to trust ML and ML probably does not even love MC, but due to his trauma he thinks he does — I mean, they were together not even for a month, so what the hell? You tell me ML waited so many year, hah?! In the end, MC even says that he feels uncomfortable having s*x with ML, but still does due ML's obsessive behavior. I'm sick.

Oh the smut scenes... I hate them so so much. Poor MC was so uncomfortable, everytime he asked ML to stop and guess what that rapist did? Ugh, I felt so bad reading those scenes. And in the end, MC was the one saying "I'm sorry"...

So, I enjoyed the mercenary-turned-into-slut-actor plot and the revenge stuff, and the film got me hooked so muuuch! But the romance? Terrible, forced, uncomfortable. Really, one of the worst relationships I have ever read. It would be so much better if there wasn't romance at all, of if the MC fell for that Chase guy... That guy was kinda cool, though the characters were pretty meh.

In conclusion, the idea was interesting, and I goot hooked by the action scenes, but it was poorly executed. If you aren't bothered by disgusting and forced couples, or if you are here just for an uncomfortable smut, go on, I guess. Oh, congrats to the translation team though, it was very smooth. <<less

The plot was enjoyable and so are the interactions of seme and uke.

Considering the novel was published last 2012, the plot still fits at this year and can still be said to be original and a gem.

... more>>

At first, there's a rift between them, as the seme feels disgusts to the original owner of the body the uke is currently occupying. But I love how his attitude took a turn as time passes and realizations pour.

The way he spoils the uke is extra cute. Hmm, sometimes his obsession with the uke is too much, and borderline psychotic (this is only my opinion lol), but that's what makes most interaction sweeter.


The character development was good and you can hardly spot a plot hole in the novel as all the problems introduced in early chapters were answered in the later ones.

The ending and sidestories were satisfying as hell too.

It's a story you can re-read from time to time when boredom strikes. <<less

I must admit that I may be biased, reincarnation being a favorite genre of mine, but this is one of the best light novels I have read, and a favorite from the first chapter. The protagonist's calm and collected behavior, even in the face of adversity and annoyances is commendable, and his way of dealing with the previous owner of his body's past problems and image is splendid. The translation also reads pretty well. Even though this is a BL novel, even people who are not comfortable with this should... more>> give it a try, as, so far, it isn't used as a main part of the story, but a part of the past life used as a trial for the protagonist to overcome.

I can't wait to see what will happen when they start shooting the movie, and how his relationship with Noah will develop further.

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of this story. I read it thinking from the synopsis that it would be similar to Rebirth of Supermodel or Superstar Aspirations, but I was also slightly concerned because it's a Korean novel. Even though I do like GoC and GoM, I've generally found Korean novels to be pretty dramatic.

Let's first not even talk about how the translation was confusing. Wasn't the MC a genius mercenary? How did it turn out that once he awakens he's constantly confused and dull and weak?... more>> Hello? Aren't mercenaries cold and ruthless people? Shouldn't they be calm and collected? But the MC starts dazing around and can't even answer questions calmly. The number of times he's nervous or dazed or avoids eyesight or whatever is infuriating. The ML is borderline psychotic as well, actually having a mental illness of being yandere towards the MC. Plus the MC is so physically weak in addition to his low IQ and EQ that he becomes almost worthless. Literally the ML basically rapes you multiple times, and you're just like oh yeah it's like he's 7 years old so sweet and cute and weak. Sigh. Pretty disappointed in the story. <<less

Well I like almost everything to this novel especially the MC and Noah. Character development was good and the plot was not rushed nor slow. The MC was strong willed and realistic. I like how he was consistent throughout the story but of course except when he was with Noah. I also love how Noah was so possessive. And gosshh the tease was so good too, the yummy part definitely leave me satisfied. And did I said goossshhh Noah was so >.< kyaaaaahh..

The only thing that could be improved was... more>> when that moment from their past has been repeatedly focused on some chapters. For me, it has been emphasized couple times that it kinda lost focus on the here and now emotion and event of some chapters.

Overall, it was a good and light read. And i'll definitely reread this one. <<less

Have the same premise of True Star where the MC died and reincarnate in another actor's body usually a no longer famous child actor. But with a twist, the MC is much more calm and collected with his life compare to MC in True Star and more badass due to his previous profession. An awesome read and very recommended

The best. I really love this story and even until now I'm still waiting for more special chapters because I still can't get over the fact that it's "the end".

It's worth reading so give it a try. Don't give up on it until you read a few more chapters cause you'll find out just how amazing this is.

I can't give a proper review because I honestly don't know how to put my feelings for this story into words. I just want to recommend this to readers out there to give... more>> it a try.

P.S. I really need more Mason and Noah moments. Its never enough. ♡ <<less

uhh, it's actually a bit hard for me, what to do, , , sigh.... From an objective point of view this is a great portrait of a realistic body/soul changing for the MC, from a ramrod straight mercenary (Mason) turn to a body of a sultry gay youth (Haley). Even though the soul is different, but he can not help with the original body too much, too weak and too pampered for his own taste. He doesnt show much of agility and badass movement like a mercenary he was. I... more>> understand because the body he uses is not suitable, and also the MC himself is repenting and trying to build a new normal life. So, yeah, I understand if the MC is not the kind of OP and badass chara here.

Even so, actually from subjective point of view I really wanted the MC to be a badass chara T_T You know, a mercenary uke is cool rightt? A cool, badass, and able to kick ass uke is cool right??? Having a strong and tough uke is cool right? right?? But it ended up with a typical uke body, that is pretty, weak, delicate, and sultry, sigh.... really a suitable uke for a good banging and papapa thing...

The ML (Raynoah) also has a good foundation for a character. Well, he's kind of a typical overbearing cold CEO like every reader loves nowadays, but he has a reason, so uhh, he's still better than average overbearing CEO ML chara. Though I hate it when he said some vulgar words and make the MC feel humiliated at first. Aaaand yess, that's one of the reason I feel a bit uncomfortable at the beginning, because the ML kind of insulting and humiliating the MC. Really, I was truly afraid when at one scene the ML almost r*pe the MC while insulting his body sultry reaction (can't help it since the original host, Haley, truly has a horny body T_T so Mason can't help his body reaction). I mean, I don't want them having s*x while the ML still wasnt sure if the MC was Haley or Mason, because the ML really despise Haley's sultry body and it's hard for me, you know I felt sad for the MC if he's raped while he's also being insulted. Fortunately they didnt do it though, they didnt do it until the ML finally sure that the soul was indeed Mason (the MC).

And another thing is the ahemm, the smutty scenes really are vulgar, ughh, I don't know how to put it, I have read so many smutty scenes in BL novel before, and yet I still feel that the smutty scene here is vulgar and I couldn't bear it, sigh.... can't help but skip it a few times. I think lately i've gotten used to read the smutty scene from CN novels, where they censored too much LOL, or too used to read a romantic and sweet s*x scene, so the vulgar one really make me uncomfortable, be it the acts or the words used.

But still, I really could understand the way the author make the MC and the way the author lead the story plot. From an objective view it's truly good, not the kind of amazingly written, but better than any modern BL novels i've read (where the usual dog blood drama, amazingly many misunderstanding, society acceptance, and family drama exist). <<less

I would have given 5 stars but the ending didn't satisfy me. I wanted a little more development in the relationship. It just broke the surface of the ML's mentality... which by the way, should have tagged this story as psychological. Outside of the romance, which was lacking, the overall story was good. Nice sexual tension. Though there probably should have been a r*pe tag on this story 🤔 that part didn't bother me too much, but it might bother others so be warned. I loved some of the side... more>> characters, especially the director:


After the MC shows off his acting talent, the director becames the MC's biggest fan to the point of obsession. Kinda hilarious😂


One thing that didn't really make sense to me though was:


Why the MC kept denying his true identity when the ML figured it out? The MC's lie helped create part of the ML's instability because the ML kept believing he was losing his mind.


Though I don't want to be greedy, I also wanna know what becomes of the MC's career... just sayin' 😅 <<less

Partway through the novel, it dawned on me that Kill the Lights must have been the inspiration for the 2016 manhwa At the End of the Road, a

comic I greatly enjoyed at the time but now realize holds nothing

on the original story.

If you're curious to know just how influenced the manhwa artist was to the point of borderline plagiarism (be warned of both manhwa and novel spoilers) :


    • The manhwa's MC, a strong man weathered and toughened by a harsh life, dies and immediately gets reincarnated into the extremely weak body of a man who apparently recently committed suicide.
    • MC finds out his new identity has the filthy reputation of a lascivious gay man, that's been dragged through the mud by people near and far, and that the body's original owner was supporting his scum family at the expense of his own self-worth.
    • Reputation king ML despises the body's original owner - or rather, is so disgusted by him and his reputation that the person never appeared on his radar. Meanwhile, he worships MC as the man who saved himself in his childhood, despite not having had contact with him in years, viewing MC as the only salvation from his carefully hidden PTSD that's triggered by dark, enclosed spaces.
    • Devastated by MC's death to the point of lifelessness, he suddenly notices the lascivious gay man behaving differently - in fact maybe, just maybe, the weak and fragile man is starting to slightly resemble his savior even though he has nothing in common with that tough, taciturn, and dependable man who's no longer in this world... thus, he hangs onto a faint glimmer of hope.
    • Sound familiar?
I'm actually thankful I read the manhwa first so I could be blown away by Kill the Lights in all its glory. It's action-packed with an underdog protagonist you can't help but want to root for. The story is at times criminally hilarious and delightful, at times emotionally taxing, and always knows how to keep you on your toes with adrenaline-pumping momentum and a good dash of spiciness here and there.

(I do recommend At the End of the Road if you enjoy Kill the Lights and want something very similar. Just expect the story to be washed down to

a teen-friendly school life romance with little spice to be had.)

Honestly, I f*cking love the story. That's it! Its not annoying or too fluffy, just right.

The MC is not dumb and the ML is not a bastard. Their interaction is normal and it sometimes show some comedic undertone. The TL is pretty hilarious because of how it describes the situation.

Maybe my only complain is that its too f*cking short! And in that short f*cking cool chapters it unlocks the past between the leads. I love how straight the uke is and how the ML treats the MC as his god... more>> (but desires him *ahem* sexually).

P.S This is my selfish complain because I am thirsty for more chapters. You can ignore this.

My other little complain is that there is no other interactions. It just between 8 people or 10? It has little interaction, seriously. And I want to see how will the MC conquer (not conquer maybe just the people love him not because he saved Noah but because of his reborn personality and skills to act) the entertainment industry and erase his tainted reputation and how will he build his coffee shop (in the making----in his pretty tiny cool head). <<less

This novel is really good. in all aspect. I'm not gonna write all good things about this, because there's plenty of it below but here are some point I don't like

1. MC keep saying how terrifying the pro mercenaries actually are. Yet, he keep making noob mistakes very often.
2.MC is a soldier, a fighter. He got this protective instinct of a real man. He like woman. He even had kid before. But for some incredible reasons, author make him bottom!!!!. getting fuc* by a man who had a crush on him when MC rescue him from getting kill in the past. So the role kinda confused me here. MC even like getting thrusted.... oh my... This is probably the biggest flaw in my opinion, that the author turn a straight dude to horn* bottom. and it keep me from getting involve in most of the sexscenes.

I prefer this story rather than True Star. It's way better in my opinion. Of course there were parts that are just damn annoying: The earlier chapters of the story has so many typos, wrong grammar etc. As the translator didn't edit the earlier ones even though she/he already has an editor. It was really hard to continue reading due to the many mistakes but I persevered knowing from reading the other reviews that it will get better later on. (It gave me a headache.) BUT!

it seems that his rebirth has something to do with some wierd voodoo the actor was doing in order to gain the affections of this one man who happens to be the mc's ex boss and a kid he saved a while back

Going into the novel with 5-star rave reviews might have raised my expectations too much. Mason/Haley Lusk is the MC and Noah Raycarlton is the ML.

There were bright moments in this series. I especially enjoyed the action scenes where Mason was able to display some skills from his past life.

Where it fell flat for me, however, was how predictable the characters were. Past events were given to the readers only to serve a purpose to explain future behaviors/character tropes. Side characters were caricatures with one personality trait. The smut was... more>> okay but slightly cringy in how it was emphasized just how forceful it was and how enduring the pain was love.

That brings me to the second point that nagged at me. The relationship is toxic. Some other reviewers mentioned it as well, but the ML is brooding and needy and slightly insane. But that's not why I knocked off a star. There are toxic relationships in the real world, and even if this is not my One True Pairing, that's just my personal taste and won't affect the rating I give a novel. What I did knock the star off for is the fact that so many mental issues of the ML's get wrapped up in a pretty little bow by the end. It's just not realistic, it seemed rushed, and it was basically a form of "They got married and lived Happily Ever After."

I hope I was able to give a more balanced review for future readers. It's not a bad series. But it's not exactly earth-shattering either. <<less
