Qiao Dai, a little sea otter who has lived her whole life in the Pacific Ocean, has transmigrated and become the cannon fodder real daughter of an entertainment novel. Seeing that the plot was about to begin and faced with the tragic end of the original novel, Qiao Dai looked pitifully at the camera: Can I sleep during the performance?

On the day the show was broadcast, countless viewers saw an adorable girl sleeping on the water. They saw Qiao Dai sleep in the swimming pool in various poses, hugging a doll in her arms, tying herself with ribbons to prevent from drifting away, and rubbing her face with both hands. For a while, the audience, the judges, and the whole program were shocked: Where does this peerless little cutie come from?

I used MTL.

5/5 super good novel. MC is OP (no doubt about it) explained coz she is an otter. She does work super hard so it's not just that she knows everything.

The entire story is pretty fluffy. From her relationship with her team mates, those from her own company to her gradual falling for the orca (ML), it's an overall good novel. The antagonists are not over-the-top (no drugs, assaults, attempt r*pes or even shady old men trying to take advantage of young girls). And MC beats them with her... more>> talent so it's ok.

Recommended if you like feel good story. Oh and there are more shape shifters though they are very rare. MC meets with a russet wolf she mistakes to be a labrador who is some big shot star in some big shot idol group.

Edit - A couple of months later, I came across this novel and realised that it is not as good as I thought. MC is too OP like how TF can 'being an otter' explain her singing/ dancing/ running etc etc sporty talents??

It's 5 stars for a first time read and then down to 3 stars if you want to re-read. <<less

I picked up this book thinking that it was something unique and it really was. It didn't really stick to the usual plot and is mainly cute and fluffy.

I skipped some chapters cuz it was mainly about her rise to stardom but that did not interrupt the fluff between MC and the ML.

Also the real family and fake-real daughter plot wasn't really highlighted? I mean I am not complaining but there wasn't any conflict and her real family was without a doubt unredeemable.

It’s a very light hearted story, more of a 3.5 in my heart but since we can’t do halves, I rounded down for this occasion. The MC is very cute, and I do like her relationship with not just the ML, but her friends too. Plotwise, it’s really just watching MC’s smooth journey to becoming a popular idol, the whole novel transmigration has no real point and the supposed “villainess” is just kinda there. The “villainess” does have a faint dislike for MC, but there’s no real face slapping or... more>> bullying on her part; they just pass like ships in the night.

The story is very stagnant though, MC is OP in whatever she does be it dancing or ice skating and the text never stops hammering in the fact that she’s super cute and everyone loves her because shes just so adorable. There’s quite a lot of superfluous events in this book that have little to no bearing on the story and sheer amount of love or the glowing reception that MC gets for anything she does can get a bit annoying. The whole “villainess/novel” part is pushed aside very quickly and honestly it had little to no affect on the plot whatsoever, it could have been removed and nothing would change. MC and ML kinda have an instant love (they get mutual love for each other in the span of a few chapters), but I actually don’t mind that part since MC and ML are animal shape-shifters. It’s not like birds or cats have a period where they get to know the other animal’s personality and thoughts before they mate, so honestly I could easily chalk it up as MC and ML having a different mindset from humans despite having human forms.

Overall, the story is a little bland and loses steam at the end, but utterly harmless and good for when you’re in the mood for a sweet story that has little to no surprises. I think rather than a novel transmigration plot, it could have just been a idol story with animal-shapeshifters mixed into human society plot line. It might not be the best story out there, but when your soul is tired or you just want something uncomplicated and light, this one will definitely scratch that itch. <<less

edit: So guys I mtl'ed it. I can't remember which chapter I paused reading.

But I won't retract my words, I still love it and I still want to read the translated ver. Of this.

OMG! I almost died from the cuteness. Ugh my heart!!

I highly highly HIGHLY recommend this to everyone, cause you also get to see cute little otter photos (thanks translator) and you get to admire the FLs cuteness. Aweee.

It was really cute. The MTL was easy to read and understand. Our ML is nice and isn't the jerky love interest type. He falls in love with her first and tries to woo her, although she didn't understand at first. She slowly realizes her feelings for him, but I don't know if it was the MTL or not, but I can't tell whether they're dating or not (yet, I haven't completed it. Some of the MTL chapters are missing). DaiDai is a really cute and likeable character. She blends... more>> in with humans well because in her last life, she sometimes went to play as a human in the human world. She has unique performances and works hard, and I think that being a sea otter contributes to that. Although she is OP and peerlessly cute and beautiful, it makes sense. She works hard to be popular and deserves to be where she is now.

P.S the ML is an actual Orca ;)

P.P.S Her whole family are jerks. Adopted and blood... <<less

The story was really really cute. I like this story. Its very interesting that the protagonist is a sea otter not the typical story where the protagonist was a mermaid.

Their lovestory is so sweet. I love the extra chapters.

It's very very very cute. There's no doubt it does cute really really well. But that's it. You read this to watch Qiao Dai being a knockoff of Shirley Temple. The translation is top notch and the writing is comprehensible and well done which makes it effortless to enjoy the cute.

If you are looking for drama, world building, great character development you need too look elsewhere, because there's none here

Oh and please note there's 25 extra chapters that the the translator missed. I don't know if they are planning on... more>> doing those (they don't seem to be available on free sites) <<less

It's all fluff no real substance.

  • Kinda felt my brain cells deteriorating the more shape shifters were introduced.
  • the romance was choppy & the first kiss hit me from left field.
  • The swapped kids plot is insignificant
The extra star is cause the MC truly is cute.

No major conflicts. A good novel to read to pass the time if you want a fluffy and light read. I really appreciate the quality of the translation because I checked the MTL/raw and I read it. It's too terrible, I mean I can understand but the sentences are just too strange. That's why I appreciate the translator who translated the novel. Keep up the good work and have a nice weekend!

Wow, I’m only on ch 35 and this story is so sweet!

now there are a few reviews that say this is too Mary Sue and ‘perfect’ and I’d agree, but really I love it!

first of al, she’s a sea otter. An innocent animal, very ignorant of the show business. She’s not a perfect dancer or ‘perfect’ in any way, just adorably cute.

in fact it makes a lot of sense. She’s kind and trusts her friends (especially in that performance) which makes sense I. The 1st few chs she said she... more>> hooked arms with her fellow otters, meaning they need trust for their survival. And the fact that she’s so cute and innocent... Otter people! I would bend over backwards for this little darling!

why is she so good and amazing?

easy, she Picks (when she can) anything water related, her specialty. And her strength! Hello!! Swimming 24/7!!! Ok not all the time but still. Her muscles allow things we could only dream of!

she’s an otter, and she proved when she 1st came here that she kept her body, she didn’t take over the original girls like other stories.

her motivation for doing the talent show?


simple, she just wants to go home to the ocean and be able to afford seafood! Really expensive lol.


anyway, she’s really motivated while including what she loves. Have you seen dogs with their tricks? Dolphins saving humans for no other reason than to just help?

I was only worried about 1 thing through all this, romance.


the guy they 1st introduced was great and nice and I totally would have shipped them, but I couldn’t help but think of the future! She’s cute now and innocent, but after marriage... I wouldn’t be able to handle that 24/7 I’d get annoyed, frustrated and just plan pissed off. Can you imagine? Your loved one just swimming, eating and sleeping 24/7 while you work, do the chores and take care of the house? Sure it’d be fun for like 2yrs or somthing an$ I don’t mind with pets, but here she’s human with otter as a spirit not marriage material.

ch 35 makes me hope that there will be this someone for her. I can see them working well together and really it’s nice to know she’s not the only one


if you want a sweet story, this is great! <<less

  1. Talented, hard working, OP protagonist — in term of career
  2. Lazy protagonist — in term of dealing with villain, that's why the villains have no presence
  3. Smooth sailing life of protagonist, her allies love her, and her 'rivals' cannot do anything to her
  4. Fluffy and cute, no misunderstanding /angsty moments between MC and ML

This had an interesting start about FL being a sea creature/human (which was not really explained at all) that... kind of didn’t really play into the story. It’s as if they were only there to move the plot along.

I do like the dynamic between FL and ML, and FL and her friends. But I wish it was not too smooth sailing and there were just a lot of plot holes.

It's a Smooth Sailing story of MC in Entertainment circle.

With fluff and heartwarming moments.

Precious Friendship moments. ML being so Helpful and Caring. MC adore her Friends and ML. Sooo niiiceeee~

... more>> No Evil Villains so far, only simple Villains being Jealous and slightly Vicious. Nothing dangerous or physically harmful.

This is first time reading Romance themed BG Novel where ML shows up only after Dozen chapters later and not even mentioned too! (Technically a second time in Romance-themed novel, but the first I found was in a BL horror unlimited flow one.)

But but but but this is NOT a Slow Romance one! Nor a Fast/Early Romance too.

In a way how MC and ML developed their feelings was as Natural and make sense with their Personality and Identity. And the way they realised their feelings and shows it, it was a Pleasant surprised. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I really pray Soooo Hard someone continued this novel translation!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 <<less

What can I say? I love cute characters so of course, I like Qiao Dai! I also love how Cheng Yan (?) supports her career wholeheartedly and only shows up when she really needs his help.

FL was originally a little sea otter who can transform into a humanoid form so she knows how to live among humans. One day, she finds herself as Qiao Dai who will be participating in an idol draft. Coupled with her naivety, innocence, and cuteness, she immediately became a favorite among the participants. FL had... more>> a huge potential in her and she improved significantly because she trained hard every day and had the mentality that nothing is difficult to learn for her. Sadly, the novel just sort of skipped the details of her working hard and struggling to perfect her performance which made her seem like a very Mary Sue character who could do everything excellently in just one try. She easily gained the hearts of almost everyone because of her sincerity and perseverance. However, she still feels a bit lonely as she is not human, but a little sea otter. That was until she met the ML, a grumpy killer whale. Since ML and FL are both humanoid sea creatures, they started to rely on each other and have good feelings despite ML's race being a predator to FL's race. FL was well protected by her friends and ML despite not having a family backing her so she gained success and fame as an idol without much trouble.

ML was the domineering and grumpy CEO killer whale. At first, he was just interested in FL since FL 'smells like the sea' which makes him feel comfortable. He always felt that no matter how big the pool he creates for himself, it is never enough for him to swim in his killer whale form, but at the same time, such a big pool does make him feel lonely. That was why he was amused when he saw FL enjoying his pool in his sea otter form and he couldn't help but bow down to her cuteness and purity. (P.S. Cuteness is justice!) Initially, he just watches and guards her as she is also the same as him, and he knew that FL was too pure to be easily fooled by anyone. He then gradually was touched by her softness, reliance, strength, and her insistence on wanting to have him by her side. Even though he does get jealous and possessive towards FL, he supports her 100% and makes sure that he never harms her career. He promised her that he will become her family and he did start a family with her in the end. (*Wink*)

I know people would be put off by how dumb the netizens could get just as how other reviewers ranted against it. But that is reality, netizens always exaggerate and make no-brain statements and assumptions all the time especially since their comments are basically 'rainbow farts' that praise FL. The only thing that I didn't like is that FL's hard work and passion for her career is basically just shrugged by just giving a few sentences about it which made her feel very off-putting since it makes it look like she can do everything perfectly. Anyway, I do turn off my brain sometimes when reading CN Novels so I can enjoy them. It's not that much of a dumb novel though since it's actually great. So if you love cute leads, read this~ <<less

A very good read. I got a little bored towards the end as it had a lot on the entertainment circle and I. Came for the fact that they were little animals lol. But I just skipped a couple chapters and the ending was So Adorable!!!!!!

Highly recommend to read.

Like the other reviews, this novel is sweet and fluffy. It is very easy to read the mtl, so if you are like me, go and read it. There are only two problems I’ve noticed that would bother readers: 1) The female lead adapted way too easily to human life. 2) She is way too OP. Nothing ever trips her up. But the novel is so cute and heartwarming that I was able to ignore all that.

Really cute situation with MC and ML. Description of MC's actions are always filled with imagery of a cute otter. Don't expect to much as it's all very smooth sailing for MC. Not much drama and the author didn't spent much words on the OG plot.

A good read if you like fluff and naive Mary sue MC. 4/5 stars, maybe more like 3.5 as this is kinda average.

Super cute and fluffy story. Highly recommend for those who just wants a light read, not too much drama, rarely any conflict, and if there is, it is very quickly resolved.

If you want something with more spice, angst, and/or conspiracy, don’t read this. The plots not that deep; just an otter who transmigrated into a novel (kinda confused about that part still lol) and has to go on an idol survival show, and makes everyone just adore her for being cute. And honestly easy going plots like this are my... more>> cup of tea. It’s kinda a diss to say the plots not deep, but all in all, I enjoyed it.

Tiny incidents basically gets resolved by the ML, the fans, or by themselves (due to antagonists shooting themselves in the foot).

MC was a sea otter and woke up in a human body. Sea otters are cute = MC who was internally an otter is also cute. Causing those around her to basically baby and adore her for being cute. Which basically becomes the whole plot just everyone praising her like a cult..

The way I’m wording this is a disservice, but trust me it was cute when I read it, to me atleast.

ML is an orca-shifter. The usual powerful CEO ML who resolves problems that occur around MC behind the scenes. My favourite part was when he realized he loved her, and was determined to court her. He didn’t care if to others they had different social backgrounds, just like in the animal kingdom, it was the males who did their best, competing with others to court a female, wanting her to choose them. He was going to do everything and all she had to do was choose him.
