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?

Nothing happens. There is only fluff but I suppose that was the whole point of the novel.

Sea otter becomes human and is ultra-talented in everything and everyone loves her no matter what, due to her Mc-sue halo.

... more>>

The whole world is her fan and in every chapter there are atleast the same two messages written repeatedly by fans:

1st fan message= aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

2nd fan message= something like aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh mama loves you

I have seen these two lines more than 150 times in less than 100 chapters and they are really harmful to ones sight.


This novel doesn't have an antagonist and doesn't have conflicts or real challenges for the MC.


MC, apart from being a sea otter, knows that her biological family is scum so she doesn't care about them since the start of the novel, even so there was an expected conflict coming due to MC being swapped with OFL at birth, but this conflict doesn't exist as it is resolved with just a short phone call between ML and Mc's biological mother. After this phone call Mc's biological family doesn't appear anymore, not even mentioned.

In the whole novel there is more lines that go [aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh] written by fans, than lines said by the suppossed antagonists/rivals or the shitty family.



75% of the novel happens in a single show and the other 25% doing weird things to make MC seem better.

The internet labels MC as a f*cking genius aka academic bully because she knows that male killer whales have their dorsal fin straight.

The whole world admires MC and puts her on a pedestal for going to more than 50 countries in order to record a movie. MC only appears 2 minutes in the movie, and were filmed early. She went to the 50 countries just to take a vacation.

Everything MC does it's twisted by the whole internet to make her seem cuter, smarter or more talented. If MC says something like 2+2=4 she may turn into a mathematics genius.


Probably on of the most boring novels I have read. I give 2 stars instead of 1 just because sea otters are damn cute and I have learnt some things about them by reading this novel but I think that watching a documentary about sea otters would have been a better option to waste time. --


I change the rating to 3 stars because the novel only pursues fluffiness and it would be unfair to rate it below 2, 5 stars taking that into acount. <<less

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.

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’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

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

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

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

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!

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

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.

Okkish, cutesy no-brainer story about sea otter transmigrating into a world where there are other animal-human shifters, like the orca whale -ML...

MC is a genius and excels in everything, everything she does is cute and adorable leading her to have lots of fans... even most of her competitors cheer her on and love/admire her... Almost everyone who meets her is blown away by her cuteness and develop a good feeling for her at first sight, as how can anyone hate fluffy animals, even if they're in their human forms!??

Any and... more>> all cannon fodder villains antagonists are destroyed beaten down quickly and so thoroughly that they don't get a chance to come back up again... <<less

This is cute. Very cute. I just wish there was *more*

EDIT!!!: I found the extras! Some of my cravings were met, but not all. MORE DOG BLOOD! lol

I need netizens reaction when their relationship finally revealed... I need netizens to find out about her real parents... like WHERE IS MY DOG BLOOD DRAMA?!

what happen w the wolf??? I feel like the author introduce him then did nothing else w it except for that one arc. I don't need an explanation on why shape shifters are a thing and how that... more>> would work, genetically speaking lol but I don't think our otter even find about the wolf is also a shape shifters.. <<less

So far this has been really good, hopefully the introduction of the ML doesn't ruin it. Not really sure why we need a male lead tbh but at this point it's a fun light cute novel.

Doesn't need to be taken seriously but a nice relaxing read that doesn't require a lot of thinking or 100 chapters of the same drama being repeated.
