Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

To most people, Feng Jin is a mercurial, dangerous man but to Shang Guan Jing who barged into his territory innocently, he is but a lonely, man, ostracized by villagers. To keep this interesting companion by his side, he masked his impatience, his calculation, and played the meek, sensitive man to the hilt.

To his delight, he can trick talk her all the way into marriage – only to find out that he does not make it to the first, second or even third placing in her heart. How dare she treat him so poorly? Maybe it is time to show her what he has that makes him the Devil of the Wild South…

Funny. Liked the anti hero, didn't like the ending nor the female lead in the end. I would still recommend for a light and different kind of story where you hate the guy but at the same time enjoy his childishness.

This story is comedy gold. The male led is such a black belly. It's funny how he comes up with schemes just to fool the female lead. Looking forward to more.

I like the humour of this novel, it was intense. The ML is a crazy man, he is strong but have weaknesses too. The FL is easy-going, doesn't take her guard up ending her being tricked by the ML. A malicious and perverted ML and a strong-willed FL is good match. Ill be following this novel.

I can't possibly rate this novel fairly, in my book it's a 1/5, but it's clearly a josei/shoujo novel and not meant for men at all, so I will just rate it as 3/5 for average instead.

This novel is quite disgusting in my opinion (especially the weird relationship between the guy and girl which screams of female fantasies) and the jokes all really faily to hit home. I didn't laugh even once even when the comment section were freaking out about how funny it is, I didn't even understand which... more>> part was supposed to be funny. You can also clearly see that there's only females commenting, especially since they're babbling about the male lead and whether or not he's a turn off or whatever. Urgh.

So, don't read this if you don't like shoujo/josei novels. Most males should just steer clear. I wanted to post this review because I want to warn other guys that might think of trying this novel out. I did because the description and reviews caught my interest to some extent and there was no "josei" or "shoujo" tag up there. I'll just go ahead and put one of them in myself so that no other unfortunate guys happen to waste their time here just because they think it's a novel for males. <<less

Uncomfortable-ish
More of a lengthy short story than an interesting read. It feels like a much more real version of how romance usually progresses in Chinese romance books. The male lead acting like an obsessive douchebag creatures actual strife, and you find yourself wondering if these two are really a healthy couple instead of thinking " oh, it's fine if they're cute together ".

This is a very good read if you're looking for something other than the identical romances every other book has, or are just looking for something to kill... more>> time.

4 out of 5 starts.

Also, this is missing the Yandere tag. <<less

The translation is very well done and the story itself is well written, but the one thing I can't get past is the molestation and almost rape. The male lead tricks the female lead by pretending to be a poor, lonely, helpless soul when in reality he is a cruel person who only thinks about himself.
Spoiler

he regularly physically punishes his subordinates for getting too close to his woman, when she doesn't even know she is his woman in the first place. While she is sleeping he puts a spell (?) on her to make sure she stays asleep, then fondles her and molests her against her knowledge or consent. Later on when she gets knocked out in a fight against his subordinate, he strips her and molests her again, considers raping her, then thinks about how troublesome it would be to deal with it in the morning and decides not to. He doesn't stop because he has any respect for the female lead, he stops because he feels that it would be troublesome to deal with it in the morning.

[collapse]
the whole story begins with him tricking the female lead into being at his beck and call and pretending to be a weak and misunderstood young man. In reality, this male lead is an angry, frustrated, holier-than-thou sort of character who will go to any lengths to get what he wants, even if it means forcing the female lead to love him. He doesn't regret that she pities him, he doesn't regret molesting her, he doesn't respect her autonomy at all.

to be honest these types of stories can be written in a way that changes later on or represents some kind of theme, but I don't feel like his lack of remorse or the lack of any sort of repercussions or chastisement from anyone around him will change his attitude anytime soon. The female lead is actually pretty likable at least up to where I read, and I can sympathize with her to a certain extent. She is kind of stupid but that's honestly an expectation with C novels. I recommend you read this if you like female fantasies or you don't mind the gross rape subtext it pushes.

The main lead is a human hybrid who is unscrupulous and totally evil and you will love him for it. It's a very short story, which I regret since I wish it was a lot longer.

The two main characters were interesting, the female lead was pretty one-dimensional and kind of a mary-sue, but the male lead totally made up for it with his sinister personality. None of the other characters were fleshed out since its such a short story, but it has so much potential since we meet the rest... more>> of the Diao clan as well as the female leads sect members and I am left to wonder about their stories. I am going to assume that the author might have written individual stories for each of the interesting character mentioned such as Nineteen (I really wanted to know why his name was Nineteen, was he the Nineteenth child, is that his age...?) and Fourth Sister who seems to have magical powers of her own (maybe both of them even paired together?).

Overall, it was a very fun read and the translator did a really good job. Thank you for allowing us to be able to read this amazing story! <<less

Infuriating.

Of all the chinese novel I have read so far, I think this has the most 'irritating' female MC. And because of that, take this 2/5!

STORY:

With the provided description, I guess we all get a brief idea of what this story is all about. It started off good. There's no problem with the translation. Nice pacing. Very smooth. Until the story gets darker and darker, and I didn't feel like reading anymore because the main characters irritated me to the max due to their immature actions, especially the MC. I... more>> lost all interest after reading chapter 7, and when I tried to skim and peek until the last chapters, my irritation remained. Why? Still because of the MC. She's a big "What...?" to me.

This story is full of angst. Angsty because the main characters made it to be so. Tsk.

CHARACTERS:

Ah, this is where the problem all started...

I abhor the MC with all my heart. At first, I thought she was good, until she did things that raised my eyebrows. I mean, come on! Sure, the ML tricked her, but she shouldn't act as though she's not at fault as well. Like what she did at chapter 6 (why take marriage so lightly, girl???) . I didn't also like how she act so immaturely. Though the ML is despicable, and equally immature, he's more tolerable given his nature, so I somehow understand him. But the MC? Dang, she's the manifestation of the female lead I hated the most in every fictional story!

OVERALL:

I didn't enjoy it. The MC annoyed me to the max. It's angsty. Someone complained about this originally not having a shoujo tag before he read it (to his great regret), so he put one out of courtesy for the future readers, but I think this should have a josei tag under the genre instead. There's nothing fluffy about this one! In fact, some contents are quite disturbing and only fit for mature readers (though the main characters are quite immature themselves).

Obviously, and unfortunately, I didn't get, or rather, 'failed' to see the positive points the 5-star reviewers saw. Oh, poor me...

Maybe I'm just overly sensitive. Or was expecting too much. But hey, I was supposed to enjoy it, right? The fun part, the comedy...

Just where... ? <<less

This short but sweet story if my favorite among the wuxia/romance novel I read so far. I lost count on how many times I have read it over and over again to the point that I memorized the lines spoken by each character😁. The novel is great I cannot say that its short on chapters since each chapter is well written and u can't think of skipping it just like I do on some novels that I find the chapters boring. The interaction between the MC and ML is super... more>> fun to read and I will not agree to anyone who will say that the MC is dense and stupid because she is simply kind and the saying goes "you can never go wrong with kindness" as she finds her happy ending. I won't give any spoilers since this is a short story but I am highly recommending this novel for all the readers out there. <<less

It was a fun short read.

The MC is such a righteous heroine while the ML is so deceitful and perverted. It's like the hero married the villain hahaha. Still, they make a cute couple.

Thanks to the translator for picking this up and doing a fantastic job AND completing it! Thanks to the author as well. :)

The lead is evil and slightly inhumane but that is the charm of this story. He doesn't pretend to be the hero from the story, he does everything he can to get the FL's attention. He really does love the FL although it takes a while for him to express it to the FL. Need more chapters
