I rush to read any new updates, and only wish that updates were more frequent!

It's a second chance novel where the MC gets to go back in time after he's killed unexpectedly, but it's almost slice of life-ish. There are elements of business management, entertainment, and CEO-secretary Romance. Yes, the MC has enemies, but the author doesn't write dog-blood, over-dramatic face slapping scenes. ML doesn't fall in instant-love with MC but grows to slowly admire him, and I don't think the MC even holds any romantic feelings towards ML at... more>> this point.

This novel is both understated and underrated. <<less

This novel is good and relaxing to read.

The story is about Lu Chengyu who came back from 9 years and his life after going back to the past. Lu Chengyu's life is full of mystery and here we will discover why his life is full of bad luck in the past. And to Yan Mu, I can only say that he is the starting point of Lu Chengyu's luck.

This one is very well-written. MC's character is special, multi-dimensional and well-described. ML is likable. Rebirth theme is nice, moreover there's no annoying unrealistic cheats like space. Love story is especially sweet.

There was a bit of revenge and face-slapping. And there were elements of detective close to the end. I was not very pleased with it, but except from it everything was top notch for me.

Lu Chengyu, after a life of misfortune after misfortune, dies and is reborn as himself 9 years earlier, before fate turned against him. His accidental meeting with Yan Mu sets off a chain of events that seems to take his new life on a completely different path from his previous one.

Pros: Most realistic and consistent characterization of romance between 2 MC's that I've come across in a very long time (after 81 chapters, what the supporting characters say/imply about their romance perfectly aligns with how the author displays their relationship),... more>> solid and not draggy plot

Cons: A limited/subtle plot emotionally (for those who like drama), a somewhat self-centered narration style

I debated for a while (several seconds) on whether to give this novel 4 or 5 stars as I've been trying to be a bit more discerning with my ratings lately, but this is still a very satisfying story. In the end, I settled on 4 stars because, even though it doesn't have that "oomph" factor that will make me remember this novel years from now (maybe months), a large part of this novel's charm lies in its mellowness. Like sipping a glass of wine and watching the scenery, this novel doesn't arouse any strong emotions outside of a languid contentedness, hence why my final verdict is simply that this is a satisfying story.

The MC is a fairly well rounded character; aside from his extreme over-politeness (which I partially attribute to cultural differences), I find myself resonating with his overall laissez-faire attitude towards life and others' attitudes. Like the main character of Beloved Marriage in High Society, his goal after rebirth isn't revenge, but to live well. Unlike BMHS, however, this novel maintains a sort of detached interest from start to finish; we get the feeling that all of these events are happening around the MC rather than to him. Even the romance carries that same sort of slow enjoyment; there's very little passion and almost no drama, it's just 2 people who seamlessly fit together in each others' lives.

The only somewhat complaint I have about this novel would be with its narration style. While this novel is written in 3rd person, its actually very centered around the MC- so centered, in fact, that there would be very little difference if this novel were written from a 1st person perspective. The result of this is both positive and negative. The positive is that, since we're so tied to the MC, we get to progress through the story less like an omnipotent bystander, and more like someone accompanying the MC. We're not privy to details the MC doesn't know so we experience the events along with him. The negative results of this narration style, however, is that we have a very biased portrayal of characters. The people the MC cares about are 3-dimensional and multi-faceted. For the people the MC doesn't care about, we're lucky to even know their names, even if they play a pivotal role in the novel's actual setup/progression
Spoiler

ex: that Sheng guy and his family were basically the main villains. Yet, we only know his name and there's no other info to his character other than the fact that he's the bad guy. We don't even know any of the other family members.

[collapse]

Overll I give this novel 5 stars because I think it maintained a solid story with consistent characterization with an enjoyable tone. The narration style, though it has its drawbacks, is very natural and gives the novel its own uniqueness. <<less

5⭐ for this one!!! For the ending, plot and chara!! Find out who is the killer (will be revealed at last 10 chapters). The synopsis is misleading, since the MC didn't really avoid people who were close to him. The MC is calm and collected. He is also a calculating person, masked with a smile. However, he does not take advantage of people and not unreasonable. He even weighs the pros and cons being with the ML (mostly, he checks ML's feeling, not checking the ML's worth similar to a... more>> white lotus). MC is also stronger than ML, which is really good, different fr usual flow story. For the ML, he has a hard time expressing himself. He's really funny, and caring. He's not the usual overbearing president. Even though, he is really jealous (full of vinegar), he still considers the MC. Also, He really spends his precious time to take care of MC while working. Hats off to Yan Mu
Spoiler

he cooks for MC, wipes the body of MC, drives the MC to work/accompany the MC to shooting place. He could substitute MC mother

This one is the best slice of life I've read. 💕 There are twists and turns of the story (mc's killer). I really admire this author <<less

This novel throws those BL cliche to the bin for me.

Weak shou = Nope

Dependent shou = Nope Nope

... more>> Clingy short cute shou = Hell NO

Shou that doesnt use his brain or logic and know nothing of self defence = You wont find those trait here

So, yeah, unless you look for the clique types of shou character, I suggest you need not read this novel. You wont find those normal traits you find in almost all cn wn bl.

Also not much of romance going on, we'll see that almost to the end. I like that tho. How it's not love at first sight, or I love how he/she is unique. New for me. Their love happens slow and build strongly.

Yes, MC is reincarnated, but even when he was in his original life time, he wasnt that weak minded. He's still quiet calm person. And now after he can life his life again, he will do what I will do. Taking advantage of future knowledge to gain momentum for ourself. MC will only 'kill' others when that person is already a jerk and hurt him. An eye for an eye type he is ^^

I resisted the urge to write for gong, but I'll say gong is not your over dominant, the most powerful, cold quiet type. And I think he got bend instead LOL <<less

So far, very enjoyable read with great translator!

The MC is extremely competent and elegant (almost too OP) but it's hilarious that he has a secret side of pissing netizens off and roasting people online on his alts. (Logical for him to find a place to vent if he has to be courteous all the time.) For once, it's the MC, not the ML, who is worshiped as 'the male god' due to his perfect image. The author did a great job writing his internal thoughts and external actions to reflect... more>> such a generous and charming MC.

Spoiler

It makes sense that the MC's interpersonal skills/customer service ability is top notch because he worked at a hotel and as a manager in his previous life.

[collapse]

There isn't a lot of drama so far, the story has just started picking up pace. Romance is an awesome slow burn. The main characters first get to know each other and have mutual respect before making any moves. Very happy to see female characters not being villainized and no awful tropes like the MC's relatives wanting to screw him over now that he's an orphan etc.

4 stars for now because the story is still early. May upgrade to 5 later on~ <<less

I really enjoyed this novel (MTLed with Baidu), just wish it was longer.

Nice pacing, content and characters. Loved that the main couple treated each other as equals to the extent that I'm still not sure who was gong/shou.

The first few chapters are okay but as the story goes, the plot becomes more and more interesting. The story has depth and is very well written.

I super love the MC and ML. Especially the ML, not the typical overbearing one. I also love the MC, he's like a fox but level headed and calm.

No misunderstanding and the story is direct to the point.

Author, I want more of this 😭😭😭😭

I have bookmarked this LN for months, unsure if it will ever get picked up again. And my optimism paid off, another translator is doing an amazing job of sharing this story to the world. I love the story so far, mostly because I love the MC and how his past life's misfortunes slowly get revealed while his new life is showering hum with well-deserved blessings. I hope this story get translated until the end. I'm so looking forward to how this s story goes.

Wow!!! This was soooooo good. It made me anxious reading each chapter because I couldn't stop reading and the more I read the less chapters were left. It's been a while since I found a good feel movie. It has fluff, romance, intrigue, comic revenge, cool protagonist, and did I mention fluff.

I'm going to try and sum up the main points

I MTL'd to the end, it was easy to understand. Current translation isn't the fastest but it's well done.

MCs and MLs personalities are enjoyable. The progression of the romance is great, no dumb misunderstandings.

The main things going on are business stuff with MC doing some acting on the side. All was well executed.

There were a few points that bothered me a bit but there aren't really any issues.

Loved this, it's definitely worth reading

I've read so many BL's already that I would often find the plots bland and boring...

But I really like this sort of plot that eases the reader to liking the characters...

I just love the Mc's elegant and cool manner, even though he have undergone some very bad things in his last life he still manage to stand up to redeem himself without unnecessary casualties from the side characters... apart from his revenge against his parents murder, he didn't retaliate or cause harm to unrelated people..

Unlike the MC's of... more>> other novels who always causes death and misfortune left and right.

A BIG THUMBS UP FOR THIS!!! <<less

I liked it and since I don't like the authors b-g romances I was a little surprised. The MC and ML are well-matched and intelligent. Our MC is always polite and smiling (he worked in the service field so its second nature), but he's not always nice. He isn't perfect, nor is he good at everything, but he is very good in his field (s) of experience. When he acts in the movie he has a usual number of NGs for a newbie and he can't sing, his house is... more>> messy and he has a side account devoted to trolling social media. The frozen face ML is awkward and cute in a SA kind of way, though we don't get to see his inner fanboy for the MC (I'm sure it's there). I like that he is depicted as human, rather than as a perfect ideal ML (though he looks like it at first). Not a lot of wangst and drama so if that's your thing than you might not like this. Conflicts are done well without dragging things out forever and there's just a little family melodrama towards the end (nothing to do with the two coming out). If you liked Superstar Aspirations and Rebirth of a Supermodel than you might like this one as well, though this has a lot more in the way of friends and family interactions and reactions. <<less

I loved it ! Same style that (the author of Superstar aspiration in recommendation) ! I can't believe that I found this pearl because I re-read To be a virtuous wife, etc...

There is 81 chapters (+extra) and I just ended the novel. Feel nice !

A delightful read, especially because of the easily readable translation from Shunraiki. The MC is a calm, elegant bad-ass who had some bad luck in his previous life, but who is determined to change his fate. So far, the story lacks an exciting crackle, as the MC is more of a still waters run deep kind of guy. Still, I gave it five stars for a strong beginning and to offset the random one star ratings probably given by random yaoi haters.

The story is really good. I kind of like the flow of the plot a pity tho that it was too short.

This story also kinds of remind me of Jubo (if you like this story, I seriously and highly recommend this. You'll gonna love it!).

The only thing that I don't like is that the ending is kind of abrupt? How to explain this like there was this big hype from the previous chapter then when I turned to the next it's already the end. I was like, "Uhhh, what?"

But all... more>> in all, it's really good. Might read the other story Very Happy by the author since they might appear there. Who knows haha. <<less

I was just looking for something new to read and chose this one without too much thought - but it’s so good!

I ended up reading all 26 chapters in one go and only then realized that it hasn’t been updated in a while. Someone please tell me this hasn’t been dropped?!

Not bad.

I love that the MC is calm, collected, and fully reflects the maturity he would have cultivated from his past life. His approach to things and people are all admirable. ML is ofc very powerful. I like that neither side have a "fall in love at first sight" troupe; we see their relationship and feelings slowly develop.

That aside, I wonder about that classmate. Like he doesn't seem to be a bad guy? But also he kicked MC when he was down... I feel like MC shouldn't have rejected him... more>> so harshly though.

My biggest complaint is the MC's martial arts skill. The explanation for why he's so good, to the point of beating professional bodyguards, is just too lackluster; it wouldn't have been that hard to come up with something a little more reasonable!! Other than that, he doesn't seem TOO OP (just enough to give people an inferiority complex....). I'm a little worried about the possibility of it coming up in the future, but it should be fine.

All in all, I'm optimistic about the future of this novel! The translation is very much MTL, but it gets a little better after a bit. <<less
