Zhou Li had transmigrated into a tooth-rottingly sweet novel.

The sweet novel tells the story of a tragic male protagonist who was turned into a dog, abused by a gangster, rescued by the heroine, before finally marrying the heroine.

Zhou Li’s fate was pitiful, and he transmigrated into the animal-abusing gangster.

When he transmigrated, he found his foot stepping down on a dog’s head.

Looking at the dying dog, then thinking about the male lead’s character, he realised that his life was held in this little puppy’s paws.

I like this novel a lot! Not only are all the characters really well developed and fully fleshed out, the plot is surprisingly deep for a simple transmigration story. Additionally, this is the first time I've read a novel with a black belly ML who is genuinely willing to give the MC up, if that's what he wants. Very sweet!

I LOOOOOVEEEEE THIS SOOO MUCH 🥺. I really have a soft spot for this kind of MC like he's calm, funny, surprising and straightforward AND he's not op. Where can you find a not op MC with these kinds of traits?? I honestly feel like I can't move on from him. I like how he's truthful to the ML and also how the ML is honest to him, it really avoided some unnecessary dramas. The ML is also too sweet💗 I also freakin love him. He respects the MC, that... more>> alone made him my favorite. Ngl, I laugh everytine I hear his thoughts about the MC lmao. I can't say for sure that I truly understand everything especially the explanation of his rebirth because I just mtl-ed it and I understand atleast 50% of it so I'm really looking forward for this to be fully translated 🎉 I'M SO HAPPY I GOT TO READ THIS 🌈 <<less

Ahh I finally read a realistic MC! He accepts it but is very vigilant, he is wise and has a clear purpose. Should all transmigration / rebirth MCs like Zhou Li (MC) ! But when Zhou Li knew he could live in that world, he never hesitated and was very straightforward. He also did not hesitate to take the initiative when in a relationship, kissing and even asking papapa with ML. When else is there an MC like that ?! Can only be counted on the fingers. The MC isn't... more>> OP, he's also in pain so it's great! <<less

I love how the author of this novel approaches transmigration. Given how overdone the trope is, reading transmigration novels can be a repetitive experience. However--no spoilers--readers will be pleasantly surprised by how the protagonist handles his transmigration, and how he thinks about it as well.

This novel is FUNNY. Plots glide by and my eyes haven't glazed over once, because there's always a punchy one liner to break up the monotony of storyline advancement.

Highly recommend.

It's quite a light novel. 4/5. I had fun reading the story, and it made me laugh a lot. There are some weird things in the story that seem a bit weird (plot holes but too minor to be called plot holes), but the fluff is real and the characters are nice.

Like the other reviews, the MC does seem rather real to me. I wouldn't go as far as to say he's like an actual human being, but his positive attitude (while not being dense) does have some depth to... more>> it. The ML wasn't particularly nice or bad (for me), but I don't think that he's terrible. The romance itself isn't amazing, but the MC actually takes the initiative and reciprocates his feelings to the ML instead of making the ML the one always taking the lead. I mean, lovers are meant to be in a give-and-take relationship, right? The plot isn't spectacular and has its own weird places, but it isn't terrible at least, even if it's a bit confusing sometimes (for me). Weird places:

I mainly think the the reason for the weird places is the lack of detail or no explanations (and perhaps the writing style). Since the novel has some rich family drama, you'd expect some scheming and plotting in the novel. There is scheming, but I don't understand why. Also, the writing style or just the way the author wrote the last few scenes made the story's ending really anticlimactic.


It's nice for a really light read, but if you're looking for a novel with a plot that has more details and runs smoothly, or a romance that goes deep, this novel isn't for you. <<less

hilarious! MC is a bit eccentric and very sweet, he never fails to make the people around him speechless. At first ML was disgusted with him (bc he didn't know zhou li was not the og! Qian liye) but after spending time together, ji shaoyan grows fond of this silly baitian and later spoils him a lot


(e.g. Only smiles when his friends shout at him to tell zhou li to stop singing; joins zhou li's dirty tricks when playing online game).


this is a very lighthearted novel with sprinkles of angst that get resolved quickly


zhou li tries to get back to his own world because instead of waiting around anxiously in case the og!qian liye comes back, he'd rather go back on his own term. And it makes ji shaoyan furious because he is unknowingly involved in the plan to get zhou li's soul out of his current body. And finally! Here's a novel containing a switched-at-birth plot with none of the children ending up miserable! The zhou family handles it well; neither zhou li nor zhou luwen is sacrificed


zhou li, in this new life you have a family who loves you and a lover who cherishes you and will get indignant on your behalf, isn't it great? ❤

From chapter 1 until 20 the story fun and enjoyable but, I don't know why from chapter 30 there is many chapters not really important for the main story adding up. So as the reader I get bored when the thrill get cut off with many unimportant scenes. Too many filler on story get readers bored and leaving the novel. But this is still decent novel and I give 3.5 stars for this novel. Maybe someday I'll finish this Novel. I'm rather picky with novels so pardon me.

I LOVE THIS NOVEL SO MUCH!! MC is really my cup of tea. He's calm and straightforward. In other transmigration novels, The MC would normally try to act as the original body, and for me that was really weird. But what this MC did after transmigrating was something I would definitely do if I was in his situation


He proclaimed that he was schizophrenic and that he was the second personality of the original body.


Overall, this is such a light and fluffy novel (with a sprinkle of angst).

5/5🌟 recommended

The summary makes it sound like fluff, but it's really more of a comedy and drama. Even after the "romance" starts, you won't really see any fluffy heartwarming moments. I also skipped a lot because there are some themes I'm not comfortable with- there's quite a few "problematic" themes that aren't exactly handled delicately, it's a lot like a common asian teleserye. (Expanding on my thoughts at the end)

That said, it's not all bad. I think the author takes an interesting approach to transmigration with the MC pretending to... more>> be the second/split personality of the original character. It's also cool how honest he is, despite also being somewhat scheming. As for the ML, while his attempts at courting (and peacocking at) MC don't make me swoon or think "how cute", I do think it's funny.

I can't in good conscious recommend this series to everyone, but it's really not that bad and the TL by CWAS is pretty good.

This part is under spoiler since it's just my personal thoughts, but it may be considered a TW:


The author likes to use heavy themes, but whether because MC is too apathetic or it's an author issue, the way they're treated feels very tone deaf.

  • Parental Abuse - The original MC's father is abusive and seems to have anger issues, and seems to be an alcoholic. He does decide to start seeing someone for his issues, but the problem is that everyone seems to treat his behavior as something acceptable or easily forgivable. It's like the author has amnesia about him. When they need to react to the abuse, they react appropriately, but outside of those scenes they just treat him as a normal "friend's parent". That's not how it works! The only people who seem to actually behave realistically are the Zhou parents, who threaten to sue (I'm guessing should be press charges?) him and beat him up. Which leads to-
  • Suicide - The Qian dad gets drunk and threatens to commit suicide the night after Zhou dad beats him up because he can't take the shame of admitting that he was an abusive piece of shit, but the concerning thing is how the author has the MC respond to this. Author is very firmly on the "suicidal people just don't appreciate their life enough!" stance regarding suicide, but when combined with the "Sure, he was abusive, but it's not like he can't change and just better himself and then everything will be fine" rhetoric, it can make the scene difficult to get through. I personally could feel my blood pressure spiking and giving me a headache even while I was trying to skim through this section.
  • Mental Health - This straddles the line between being aware of mental health issues, and being very half assed when dealing with it. It gives off the impression of using mental health issues to needlessly 'spice up' the story, like those preteen fanfic authors who love to have the characters cut themselves to show how sad they are.
  • BL Tropes - normally I wouldn't mind since I'm used to it, but combined with everything else, the yandere obsession, 'I want to cage him up', tallying grievances to take revenge thru excessive (possibly unwanted) s*x later, etc, just seems so much worse.

That's it for now, but yeah, this series isn't exactly friendly to anyone who isn't completely mentally healthy and strong willed.

there's a certain quality to the whole cast that makes you feel like they're extremely human as if they're the most self-aware trope of clowns that are aware that something's up, but not in a meta sense. Even the original zhou li gets enough screentime to feel that and that guy deosn't even show UP as a character.

also, I love how the author writes out not just zhou li and his relationship with the ML (and it's f*cking hilarious, , , the build up of their interactions. Like. I love... more>> how after the ML learned of zhou li's family situation, he doesn't even gic a sh*t like 😭? He's just like "f*ck so this is who I'm stuck with?" like??? LMAO?), but also with his young bros. The author creates stable relationships between MC and other people who aren't directly related to the overarching plot or with the ML himself, which makes it feel like the world exists outside of just a romance novel. I also love his relationship with song yishi like lMAO homegirl is just doing her best. <<less

I love the MC!!! Like seriously he is so human-like and I can relate a lot with him. Also other characters aren't created to become a vase to be face-slapped or a character with two dimensional traits. They're felt like human. Their attitude isn't flawless, but that's what made me can sympathize with them. In short. Just read it :))

Really good! I especially enjoyed the characterization of MC and ML. This is a real pick me up, not too much frustration but it isn't so smooth that it's bland. The plot point about how the MC transmigrated is also very interesting.

Not perfect, but deserve 5 stars. All the characters are so well written and full of dept. I dare say that based solely on the characters, this novel done better than a lot of 100+ chapters novel.

MC is not your born-for-face-slapping type of MC. He is kind, reasonable, full of humour, all in all very lovable. While ML is almost the typical ML, but still feel different.

The side characters are all well written, they have a lot of story to tell.

Plot holes here and there. However, the novel is a... more>> very good read, enjoyable, funny, relaxing. Try this. <<less

10/5 stars!!

- this is a refreshing mature novel without the generic chinese black and white worldview where MC is pure white all the time.
this book makes everyone human without entirely bad or good impressions without making light of their crimes. Like for example the abusive dad.

- the MC is also really smart unlike generic dumb naive mcs, he noticed ML wanting to ask him out and was like aah, hm lets sound him out

i wish the author wrote more and more translators picked up their books

I'm really looking forward to this. I love how the MC took good care of other people, not to OP! He's the whole reason why I'm willing to read this!! Although the ML already shows his possessiveness in the recent chapter, I just hope he won't be too overbearing ahhh.

UPDATE: Had to MTL the rest of its chapters, although it's quite confusing I kinda get the story's point. Regarding with the ML's personality, he's not a bad guy actually. So different from what I expected. I love their relationship... more>> and chemistry. <<less

At first I didn't initially like how brash MC was, but then that prompts the question, is there is even a correct anwser on how to approach the themes of this novel? ... more>>

Namely the domestic violence, depression, attempted suicide, body swapping complex, etc.

But as encouragement, cause I do recommend this series; those themes aren't omitted and addressed to an extent, but they aren't described very intimately. I'm not comfortable reading when I can closely associate with those sort of themes. This book is fairly short, so it is compact. There are plenty of comfy moments too.

ML is a dog. MC's goal is to treat him well enough so that he doesn't seek "compensation" for animal abuse.

MC didn't intend to treat him intimately, but from the perspective of someone who had to give up a dog because of the home situation (much like his considerations), or at times being immensely worried when apart... pets are an emotional foundation. And his adoring behavior is not so fluffy but rather "comfy". Like buying him decorations that no one but him (the dog s*ave) would care about.


And when I mentioned "compact", the pacing of this story pairs well with the grounded characteristics of MC. Not everything needs to be spelled out in the text, and it's spread throughout the story. <<less
