This is quite enjoyable. This is better than average bl novel. First, I read Rebirth of a Supermodel and like the author's work. This has similarity with RoaS (about the personality and characters) but within (classic) music industry, and I think more research of knowledge is done for this one, up to author's limit of capability.

The main difference is MC wakes up in another body and can get revenge for his personal grudge of being murdered. While in RoaS, MC gets revenge for the owner of the body he possessed... more>> after he died. Same difference ~☆ <<less

What can I say? This novel is a masterpiece.

You will not only fall in love with the two protagonists, but will also fall in love with classical music.

The author has done his/her research regarding orchestras, operas, violin, piano, concerto, Vienna, Paganini, Mozart, Beethoven etc.

... more>> He/she really made an effort in this novel to introduce us to a new world of orchestras and music.

When the protagonist would play the violin, I would tend to search the music in youtube to have some realistic effects.

The MC is very hardworking. Even though he already graduated and has a lot of experiences, he is still not satisfied and kept on practicing, which makes him lovable.

The ML is super devoted. I love him!!! He is somewhat tsundere but that makes him cute. Also, the way he confessed, was also cuteee! ! Also, the other characters are really lovable. Especially the MC's teacher.

I came from an asian country so I don't know much about orchestras but after reading this, I fell in love with it. I plan to go to Vienna in the future.

Just read it!!! <<less

Once again, I will tell you that,



Okay, personally I really like music-themed novel, moreover it's a BL!! And I can tell that the author did her/his research well, bcs I found many details about music related things in the story. Like when the author mention about wiping rosin before playing violin, it's a very basic thing that every violin player know but hey before I started playing violin I thought that I can just play and it will sounds great lol silly... more>> me... Also I really like the selection of classical pieces in this book. I'm not familiar with some of it but after I listened to it, it was great. Personally I really like the chinese music pieces in this story, "Butterfly Lovers" and "Summer Nights", I'm only familiar with classical pieces from western composer, so this kind of music is like a breath of fresh air for me....

Hmm I'm getting tired of typing... in short I really recommend this novel for classical music lover. The music is great. The romance is great to the point of sickening (*cough*imasingledog*cough*). The humor is very pleasing. The ML is capable and loving, MC is gentle and hardworking. Side characters are so funny and very supporting. The villain is annoying but not really dumb anyway they got what they deserved. And the drama is not too much nor too little.

Maybe the only bad point in this novel is that the MC is too OP, I mean he basically perfect, can do this and do that, have perfect appearance, so cute and innocent. To me it sounds a little unrealistic, but hey I'm still happy when reading it haha. But I expected a story about MC's struggle to reach the top of his music career, so idk...i think MC's journey from the beginning til the end feels a bit flat (?).

But overall I really enjoy reading this novel~ It's really hard to read MTL and you can miss lots of details so thanks to current TL for translating this hidden gem.


My personal favorite scenes are the confession and the proposal. The former is very funny and the latter is very romantic. Especially the proposal, if you're an emotional person just like me you might find yourself sobbing in the corner lol. Actually the idea is very basic like most proposal videos on YT, but now I understand why it made me so emotional. It's bcs when I watch those proposal vids I'm not familiar with the couple but when I read this proposal scene I know MC's journey from the beginning so it feels kinda personal. Oh right, ML is so sweet and very doting, gosh where can I find such creature in this world *sigh*.

This one seems very interesting so far. There are only two chapters but I am already anxiously waiting for more.

The Narrative is very vivid and the characters are rich in emotions. The MC is strong, smart and willing to give his best to achieve his objectives. Luckily, after being reborn he seems to have received the means to conquer those desires while his personality guarantees that he will use those means to the best of it. He will implacably climb, regains what he lost, attain even more, and make his... more>> betrayer pay heavily in the process. One of the tags of this novel is "revenge" and judging by the MC's personality we can predict that he will make sure that his betrayer wishes for death before being done with him.

That doesn't mean this is the kind of boring novel where an overpowered character keeps on receiving everything for free on his lap, but that the MC is powerful enough to fight for what he wants and win over the difficulties.

Abou the ML, there isn't much to say so far because his presence has been scarce but we can already tell that he is not one of those ice cub gongs. He may have a cold and impassive exterior demeanor but is reach in emotions inside. Plus, he seems to be the devoted type.

Regarding the quality of the translation, it is impeccable. The read is very smooth and pleasurable with no grammatical issues or comprehensive difficulties. The translator deserves congratulations for the great work.

All in all, I am very hopeful for this novel. It will probably become one of my favorites. <<less

This novel is a gem L❤V it

⚠ a little spoiler

The MC and ML's interaction is so cute Even though it's slow romance but you can see that from the beginning the ML seems to be attracted to MC he just doesn't seem to notice though cause of his suspicion in MC being LZW. I'm in chapter 68 so I can't really rate it but still reading every new chapter makes me feel excited thinking what might happen next hahaha that's cause ML's is so cute at making excuses just to... more>> see MC 😂.

I really thank the TL by translating this novel great job sharing this gem 😆. <<less

Artistry and Music. Definitely a novel filled with quirky and temperamental characters.

And I really don't recommend MTL-ing this if you're interested in discovering more of the world of Classical Music. It's the core of the story so it'll lose so much essence of the characters if you'll do so. Their musical preferences reflect their person and the novel defines their kind of music so it'll be a loss.

The translation quality is definitely guaranteed HQ. (*3* Betwixted Translations)

Another gem from my favorite author <3

I love the slow romance and some humor on the story. However, I feel a litte bored probably bcoz it's a slice of life, still I couldn't help myself but continue to read 😂😂. Honestly, it's really good. I only feel it's time consuming due to it being a slice of life (preferred world hopping so I could read arc by arc). Will continue the rest of the story during summer. My favorite chara: Reed akkad 💕😂

I'm a sucker for stories about music or the entertainment scene and I like this authors other works so of course I had to give this one a try and I'm glad I did.

the MC has one special ability that he gains with his new body, which is absolute pitch. Other than his experiences in his last life, there's nothing else but ambition and determination to work hard. The MC isn't super OP, he learns and grows as he experience's new things and he even fails now and then.
i like that his relationship with the ML is one of equals and he's not afraid to go off and... more>> do his own thing when he needs to. He misses the ML, but it doesn't stop him from doing what he feels he needs to. I get so tired of naive, stupid, emasculated MCs in BL who have to be dominated and rescued all the time. Every time I find one where the MC can hold his own it makes me happy. I also like that

he tells the ML who he is/was. Even though the ML was 90% sure already, now he knows for certain.

I'm not completely done with the MTL yet but this story is def worth the read.
also, thank you to the translators. I can't wait to read the translated version!! <<less

This novel have a 70% good point and 30% bad point in my opinion.

The good point is even me who didn't understand too much (because I didn't have a music hobby at all) about classic music, make me want to search the classic music that author write and hear other orchestra in youtube. The story of romance is slow but because this is about 2 romance story of pianist and violinist, therefore it must more about feeling than smut story. The comedy is good too, not very powerful comedy but... more>> happy easy going type comedy.

The plot is stabil and she didn't forget her main plot at all. That makes me very happy especially in this chapter finally our Little Seventh Angel (MC nick name that I combine) can have his little princess. (Itis violin if I am not wrong that still in Swiss bank, the safest bank in the world they say lol)

The bad point is the author sometimes exaggerate the aura of music and sometimes just cut it off and didn't say anything about the music that she says, sometimes the comment just a little. It makes me irky because it makes her didn't serious tell the aura of the music at all. I want her to tell us the reader about that music in long medium paragraph. You know, I didn't tired to read it because this is modern type story and use modern story telling so I can read it fast. So I didn't mind to read more long chapter.

Ah and I think the journey of MC is little bit easy because he can control his emotion in front of elder... that makes me think that it was not very realistic. Even I know the author made the MC has a good temperament characteristics... <<less
