Chi Wen’s short life has been bumpy. Ever since he could remember things, he was already living in the orphanage, growing up without a family. Later, he entered the entertainment industry and became a first generation film emperor. However, he finally ended up in ruin. In the end, Chi Wen jumped off the top floor of a building, but did not expect that he would get a chance to open his eyes again…

Back to his infancy, Chi Wen coldly looked at the woman who was laughing s*upidly in front of him. He waited, waited until the moment she finally abandoned him.

 Fu Yuanruo was transmigrated as the cannon fodder in the novel ‘First Generation Movie Queen.’ When she first transmigrated, it happened to be the plot point when the malicious cannon fodder tried to frame the female lead for the last time. After that, her evil deeds would be exposed. The whole netizens mocked, and her father angrily drove her out of the house. A former wealthy and pampered young miss fall into the mud and finally died after accidentally falling into the water…

Because of the high popularity of the original book, the author used the daughter of the original female and male lead as the protagonist for the second book. The villain who had been against the main couple of this sequel also met his just end and died tragically. After his death, the female lead let out some vague words that made readers speculated that this villain was the illegitimate son of the prequel’s cannon fodder.

After recalling the plot, Fu Yuanruo stared at the pregnancy report in her hand. She was torn: should she give birth or not?

This novel is my favorite in the "transmigrated into a villainous/cannon fodder with a child" novel trope type. It avoids some of the shallow cliches while leaning into others. It is very slice of life btw so not too much focus on revenge or anything.

First, I will start off by saying I don't think the romance is spectacular. It's not bad and the ML is a good guy, but it's like lukewarm at best in my opinion. It's not bad at all, but it's not really expanded on properly and... more>> it feels really shallow/ they don't have super great chemistry. Like ML likes MC cuz she has his kid obviously but also she's pretty (might be standard for webnovels, but everything else is well done that this feels superficial).

Later in the extra, in another universe type thing, it comes out that
Spoiler

the kid isn't actually his but he adopts him anyway which is sweet

[collapse]
He is a good guy though and there's never any of that really dumb "I'm jealous my wife has someone she cares about other than me even though it's literally a kid" shit. He does sometimes think that his kid is being an obstacle but it's never in a jealous kind of way that I find is so weird in webnovels.

Now the best part of this novel really is the son's characterization. You know all those novels that use children as just plot devices to push the couple together or as geniuses who can somehow do everything and self-sufficient adults. Yeah, this child isn't that. He's an honest to god child and the characterization is extremely deep and well done.

Normally in these types of novels, the child gets treated well by the MC for like a couple days and they suddenly forget all the abuse and trauma they've suffered which is not how trauma or mental illness or anything in the real world works. In this, MC transmigrated before she gave birth and in the past life, the villain doesn't remember the MC at all as he grew up mostly in the orphanage. Because of this, he really resents MC because he assumes she threw him away to the orphanage to get remarried or something since that's what the dean of the orphanage said probably happened.

He resents her and hates her and doesn't want to get attached because he assumes that no matter how well she treats him now, eventually she's going to get rid of him anyway. But at the same time, he craves the type of love he didn't get in his previous life and he's insecure about it so he does his best to reduce his burden so she won't throw him away.

Spoiler

at one point, MC makes him think that she's running out of money and so he stops drinking formula so to save her money so she won't give him up. This obviously really distresses MC as she can't figure out why her baby suddenly refuses to eat.

[collapse]

But even so there's this feeling of anger he has toward her no matter how much he wants her love, because he doesn't know why she didn't want him.

Spoiler

Later, one night when he gets sick and they have to walk home from the hospital really late at night and MC gets creepy vibes, she says something like "is it impossible to escape death in this life too" and the villain child loses it. He realizes or believes that his mom died in his past life (and was reborn like him) and he cries a lot before he finally starts to heal a bit from his past trauma of insecurity and fear.

[collapse]

It's honestly really deep characterization for a webnovel and I think that it's very realistic in some ways while still being lighthearted. I also love that he continues to act like a real child though he thinks he's mature, but he does have the attention span and the mental age of a real kid due to biology. He's not suddenly super smart of anything (he grew up in an orphanage and then dropped out to be an actor) - later on in the novel, he realizes he can't even do 1st grade homework or something when he was expecting himself to be able to skip to sixth grade lmao.

Other reviews have said that he's reborn and shouldn't have that kind of personality, but honestly I don't think people realize that no matter how smart, understanding, or experienced a child actually is, their brains aren't fully developed and their actions and behaviors cannot be the same as adults. Chi Wen understands a lot of things a regular child wouldn't ever be able to understand (ie. The relationship between his mom and her sister), but he still can't control things like his attention span like when he gets distracted by something when he first meets ML. In addition, he's choosing to allow himself to be a child like he should've been able to in the first life. This is his re-do to get a sense of childhood and he realizes that he too has family who cares about him and who will take care of him so why should he not be a child and ruin his second chance?

The villain being reborn doesn't really give him any cheats either. In his past life, he grew up not knowing the connection between his MC and the FL (of the og novel) and her daughter (FL of the sequel) who killed him. He knows nothing about what happened to his mom or how to get revenge so his rebirth really is solely for him to be able to live another childhood happily this time.

The face slapping is pretty satisfying though not too prominent. Overall, the mom/son family vibes are the best and it's very heartwarming and cute if you're looking for that. <<less

I really enjoyed this story. The female lead, male lead and son are just so adorable together. It's not overly complicated which I liked. In addition it has a bit of a slice of life feel in that mother and son were equally apart of the story and actually did stuff together. Unlike a lot of stories where they mention a child but never have them really show up.

This novel got me crying badly when Wen Wen know the real reason why his mother left him in previous life. It was so heartbreaking T_T

I cried so bad but that part was my favorite. T_T

Oh and clarification, in the previous life Chi wen wasn't the son of Si yue (ML). This life MC who transmigrated at that time got away from the man her step sister pay to r*pe MC, then she met ML who coincidentally was drunk/drug? (Mtl is really confusing). So don't worry, MC and ML broke... more>> their v**ginity together when they had Wen Wen. Hehehe

Overall this novel was one of my favorite. <<less

It feels okay. Not like the other transmigrate into the book and become the mother of the tragic son. There's not a lot of romance, leaning more towards mother-child love, but the father does appear in almost every chapter. Not a lot of character development, at least not one written out in details.

MAJOR DETAILED PLOT SPOILER!!!

... more>>
Spoiler

MC transmigrates to the night original was drugged and ran to her world's hometown to hide from the media. Chi Wen has memories since birth and is prejudice against his mother, always thinking sarcastically that she would leave him one day to live a better life despite how much love she showered him. Finally, he called her mother and decided to protect her when he learned that she had died in the original world, something MC slipped out in fright one day while taking the sick Chi Wen, now named Fu Wen, to the hospital.

In order to make milk money, MC joined a life-stream platform to grow flowers, and ML, Shi Yue, an emperor of the entertainment industry who can do anything but grow flowers, became her number one fan after giving her millions to get her to plant a seed for him.

Later, when Fu Wen was four, he met his father, who came to record a variety show and MC met the green tea step sister, Xuerou. Due to the last life, Fu Wen hates Xuerou and it's exposed that Xuerou is a stepdaughter, causing netizens to analyze and comment that where there is a stepmother, there is a stepfather, and Xuerou's smooth path began to become blocked.

Later, Xuerou was arrested for instigating a fan to try and kill Fu Wen and Fu father divorced after finding out the true face of the mother and daughter. However, Xuerou still came out due to pregnancy, but did not live a good life as Shi Yue made original ML's family bankrupt.

In the end, MC and Shi Yue married and have a daughter together. Fu father went to a nursing home and never saw MC again, as MC said that the person who can forgive him is no longer here. Fu Wen, now named Shi Wei, joined the entertainment company and met 2nd book's FL. He did nothing to her, but his fans and those around him guarded him against this white-lotus.

Extra:

Fu father dreams of the original life.

Shi Wei returned to his life in the orphanage and tried to find his father to get back his pampered life, but found out that they are not related by blood and that mother is dead. Still, Shi Yue adopted him and Shi Wei became a big president strong enough to take down original CP's powers.

Original changed lives with MC and prayed everyday that MC can have someone to guard her against CP's halo.

[collapse]

Despite being reborn and having gone through all those dark days, Chi Wen decides to live as a child and became very childish, often needing to be coaxed, so it was understandable that if he were to return to the original trajectory, he would be unable to crop. <<less

Can I just say that I enjoy it when MC doesn’t go into the entertainment industry lol. This one decides to be a florist/botanist which was great, and I love how she was resolute when she decided to keep the baby.

I really liked this story. I usually avoid slow romance but this novel kinda played it out well enough for me to not want to drop the novel.

I liked the ML. He is domineering yet didn't force FL for anything. And his fights with his son were cute.

FL is likeable too, mature and accepts the identity of mother unlike other transmigrated mothers who stays in utter denial of being a mom.

The son's past life was quite a tragedy. He is really a cutie pie. Really happy that he got a... more>> second chance in life and a complete family to love him. <<less

So cute.

I was there for the mother son relationship more than the romance.

For those saying she was too passive all I have to say is that she probably didn't even care.

... more>> Think about it. She doesn't know those ppl. She's not the original body. She feels distressed for the original but that's it. She just wanted to live well with her son away from the novel characters and that's exactly what she did. Why would she bother with them everytime they came and waste her energy.

When they kept bothering her she kept saying to leave her alone and would kick them out. She was honestly calm and collected and would fight back when they crossed the line. She literally hit the og ML with a stick for the ml.

And when they tried to
Spoiler

kill her son she hated them and didn't forgive them. She didn't forgive anyone but what could she do other than just sue her. When she knew the ML would help she accepted and trusted him bc he was the father of her son and he gained her trust with the incident.

[collapse]

The only moments where she was passive or ran away was when she faced the ML and romance and that was justified because she didn't have confidence as a single mother and wouldn't trust people easily either.

Her approach to everything made complete sense. If ppl dislike it, it's because they want something unrealistic coming from a woman who had to start her life again with a child in her stomach in a new world with no relatives or friends. They are delusional and just want a plot with more holes than they can find.

Realistically speaking the MC is a very strong, calm, and collected MOTHER. She even said she didn't care what ppl thought or did as long as they didn't involve her son. She was even ready to catch her falling son bear the brunt of his fall. She ran to him faster than the ml. The only reason she didn't catch him was because the ML pushed her away so that he would get injured instead of her. HOW IS THAT WEAK?!!

As for the ppl saying she was rap*d, the ML was drugged as well. He clearly said he still had a little sanity when he saw her meaning the drug was already affecting him. He himself had little recollection as he had given in to the drug when his body didn't reject her. They were two drugged people with little sanity. Even the FL remembered running into someone while drugged. They both had a little sanity when they met each other but it doesn't change the fact that they were BOTH drugged. The ML only remembered her eyes from that encounter and only really knew her identity because he asked his subordinates to investigate who he had slept with. He helped seeing she was trying to leave and not return to her family. He put up with fang xueros bothersome actions because of her. He wasn't a bad guy at all. He didn't abandon anyone since they didn't know each other and he didn't know she was pregnant. Clearly when she ran away she wanted nothing to do with him either. Why should he bother?

For the ppl saying he recognized his kid immediately despite not getting a DNA report, he clearly didn't. Like did I read a different novel or are y'all not reading correctly. He didn't know wenwen was his kid until he saw the FL and recognized her eyes. He confirmed that she was the one he was with and that the dates aligned. She was still single and the kid had said he never had a dad. Clearly form all this one can conclude that it's clearly his kid. He also knew that she didn't have anyone other than him. She clearly confirmed that she had only slept with the person she was with on the night she was drugged and he knew he was the one she was with. Ofc he's gonna be sure it's his kid. He also asked for all the information on tuneup when he found out she had a kid and in that information he must've seen that she had been living alone with her kid all along. If I were him I'd also be quite certain that the kid's mine. The reason he still did the DNA result was to reassure the mother and child that he wasn't lying or tricking them.

Also he clearly sneaked into the family as a stranger to get close to them so that they could trust him. It was an honest rational choice I don't get why people are fussing about it. The guy was a total stranger to them. How do you think a single mother would react to some rich dude coming out of nowhere saying he's her kid's dad? Obviously they wouldn't react well. Especially when he knows the kid hates his father and the FL doesn't even know him or who she slept with. He clearly says it in his little monologues that she would probably think he was there to steal her kid from her. At first he just wanted to be close to the family and support them without affecting their lives but he grew to love them and thus wanted a better identity. All his thoughts were normal. He was just going to help from afar since he didn't really know them either. He went from a single man to a father in just days. What exactly do ppl want him to do? Immediately accept his knew family and lavish them with love and money stating he's the dad? The FL would obviously be against him and would probably push him away or run away and hide from him to feel secure with her kid like any normal mother would.

Now for those who hate the ML because he said wenwen got all the bad stuff from her he was clearly being petty because MC didn't remember him. Even his manager laughed at him because he caught on to it. He held his small petty grudge for her until he realized she was already special to him. Later he does the same with his son when he gets in the way of his pursuit of the FL. He says his son grows less cute the bigger he gets. He calls him little brat and stinky in his monologues. He's clearly not serious about these thoughts. Smh ppl. Stop hating everything so easily. Giving bad reviews for no reason. I understand 3 stars but the novel does not deserve 1 stars for such flimsy reasons.

I'm not saying the story was perfect but most of the bad reviews are unfounded and thus I've given a 5 star review.
I loved it. <<less

Sketch af. Just saying. Loved the premise, loved the son and protagonist but there were certain parts that were sketch af.

First off, the ML was straight up manipulative. He schemed his way into being accepted into the fam, he knew off the bat that Wen Wen was his kid but didn't say sh*t until he knew he was a trusted friend, confidant, and a father-figure before finally revealing his identity and sneak attacking them. That crap was planned with ulterior motives.

Second, it was never acknowledged that the mom was r*ped... more>> [and ML was the self-aware rapist]. She was literally drugged and taken advantaged of. Even when the kid realized that, instead of being like " my beloved mother that I swore to protect was f*ckING r*peD BY THE DUDE I LOOKED UP TO !" It was " I was lied to!". Dude, wtf. <<less

Initially a pretty decent slice-of-life, lowkey showbiz story, but towards the end, its getting a bit intolerable and unenjoyable... Story started out strong/funny/serious and heartbreaking at times with MC taking care of her son, and the son adjusting to baby life and coming to terms with his prev life adandonment (?). But then the story started going downhill, pretty much since MC moved to the capital from village...

The reborn son is NOT a child, as a baby he couldn't control his body is one thing, but even his thoughts became... more>> more and more childish (?) as he grew... MC, although a good mother, is very bland character, and the 'romance' is very boring and stretched out at the end for no reason. Stop hanging the guy if you're not interested, and give a damn answer if you're interested; but the MC doesn't say anything, not even in her inner thoughts - we have no idea why she is resisting ML or if she even likes him or is just enjoying the attentions of a rich handsome guy... Same for ML, there's not even a 'Woman, you have gained my interest', he just decides one day that since they have a son, they should get together... May be it's a culture thing, but father and son competing for mother's attention for chapters and chapters gets a bit annoying... <<less

This is not really a revenge story. This is more of a “Little bun wants revenge but is soaked in honey so much and his parents inadvertently take revenge for him”. It’s so heartwarming and sweet.

The lack of any real conflict can make this boring but there is so much sweetness in here that it is not boring. It’s interesting reading about the baby’s past life and how he is pampered in this life. The sweetness is mainly parent-child pampering.

The is nice and light. I like it.

listen, my biggest issue with this novel is that it's updated so slowly that it just becomes boring and flat. now I know that the translators are doing this for free and we aren't obligated to have anything but it's just... if there's so many chapters already translated, why not just update regularly? I appreciate the translators for doing this in their free time without pay but it's just a little frustrating only reading like three paragraphs and having to wait a week for another three paragraphs.

This feels... Flat. I don't know how else to describe it. There aren't any like concrete events of why and how original MC was "bullied" by stepsister or step mother. We are just supposed to take MC's word for it that the original was neglected by the father as a result of the manipulations from the step mom.

... more>>
Spoiler

If not for the end, where we are let into the thought processes and reflections of the step mother, I didn't quite feel like she really was a "villain"in the original MC's life. And even then, ok so maybe you divorced your husband and manipulated your way into marrying MC's father... I don't necessarily see her as villainous— materialistic, maybe— and the author kept pushing her as the mastermind as original FL learnt all her "tricks" from her.

Tricks being, playing the role of a virtuous wife.

[collapse]

Actually, while we are keep being made to believe that original FL is a green tea b*tch, and I guess she is, I didn't necessarily find her that dislikable (because yes she "stole" the original's fiance, but it was a betrothal arranged by their parents, the two never had a mutual relationship. fiance never really cared about her either. if anything I found him more dislikable) until

Spoiler

she instigated someone to sabotage the wires while Wenwen was filming so that he will fall from a sizable height which was "sure to cause a disability".

[collapse]

Because the family drama actually just reads as two divorcees with kids marrying for the wrong reasons, and having a really horrible blended family. Step parents are still addressed as "aunt" and "uncle" but Fang Xuerou insistently calls MC "sister". Original MC gained a bad reputation that is supposedly all fake but... MC admits that original MC was "pushed" to attempt to drug original FL in order to stage a scene and capture "humiliating pictures" only for it backfire on her, which led to Wenwen's conception.

Just makes you think that perhaps that reputation isn't unwarranted if she can come up with something like this. Maybe she never actually crossed legal lines prior, but neither did the step mom/step sister. Because all I got from what we are told is that original MC felt neglected by her father because he "sided with them against her"— we are not ever told what. And it just reads like... Maybe there's a reason.

Spoiler

In fact, when the father regrets his strained relationship with his daughter. He remembers her childhood but we aren't given the in-between. You can tell he regrets things, but he's looking at the past with rose-tinted lenses when he is hit with the realisation that his daughter looks very much like his beloved dead wife. He believes everything on the internet because ~the netizens are allegedly unbiased~ but we forget that the netizens are mainly going based on their knowledge of transmigrator MC's personality to judge the family drama of the original MC. MC claims him blind, and for one, I agree. Because he's blindly listening to the Internet to judge his family's affairs as if they are even more privy to it.

[collapse]

It's as if the author has an idea, but is too lazy to fill in the details. There's nothing concrete to back up the negativity original MC had to her family. We just have to take the unreliable narrator's word for it which personally frustrates me because then, all this drama feels so contrived. Which is also reflected in the later parts— transmigrator MC and our ML's relationship just... hardly develops until the very end but it felt really abrupt given how long it was dragged for.

The single most greatest part of this story is probably the reborn child Wenwen
Spoiler

who because grew up in an orphanage and was led to believe he was abandoned, had a love-hate relationship with his mother, having the mentality that she would leave him soon to chase after material wealth and therefore reluctant to form an attachment whilst doing his best to be a perfect child and ease her burden so that he will be kept a while longer. The moment when he realised he wasn't abandoned in his original life, and that it was because his single mother died was actually the emotional peak in this entire story.....

[collapse]

And that happened really early on. I really only kept reading to uncover the ML's real identity. Also the relationship between the family is cute I guess. Until they realised they were all actually a family and by that point I just wanted everything to end. Pronto. <<less

It's pretty good. Though I think FL and ML got together a little too slow.

The part where WenWen got to knows the reason why he was left in the orphanage in his last life was really heartbreaking. Also when he dreamt of going back to his past life, it's just so awful.

But it's a heartwarming story nonetheless.

I read it all in one go - good found-family type of story (characters you will love like tsundere uncle Guo and sweet Aunt Mei are still family with the MC and baby Wenwen and they don't lose presence at all!).

... more>>
Spoiler

mostly read the story for baby Wenwen having a happy childhood hahaha he's such a cute baby declaring "I'm an adult!" sometimes since he's also reborn, but like Wenwen you also forget he is one too when he's not talking maturely. Like there's a part he confronted a neighbor village boy who bullied his friend, but gets picked up because he's super cute and small haha or another time he forgot he's filming a show with the ML and ditches him to go have cake with his friends because he got so excited. He's smart too. Closer to the end, his paternal grandparents wanted to meet him and his mom but they understood the FL wasn't ready yet since she hasn't quite confirmed a relationship with the ML, so they disguised themselves around the property. Wenwen figures it out right away before his mom even notices lol it's nice how complex he is since he has his moments of insecurity that he's carrying from his past life (so he doesn't call Si Yue dad for a long time, and he even had this dark look when he was looking at Original FL's pregnant belly since they caused him so much misery in his acting career). Major spoiler but Wenwen final insecurity was losing Si Yue's love for not being a good boy (since again, his darkness seeps out when it came to his past life enemies) but he realizes Si Yue loves him like a father to his son by choosing to teach him better. Anyways I was surprised when the story ended so suddenly on a happy note - Wenwen (who long stopped calling himself Chi Wen in the narration) was running around with a sparkler (?) happily on New Year's... Like I thought the story would have a time skip or something 🤣 but it's alright that it ends knowing he'll have a smoother life now

[collapse]

Low-key hoped for more chapters:

Spoiler

i might have missed it but did ML ever get the orchid the FL was raising for him? Or was it all "look but don't touch" since both father and son (and paternal grandfather!) are natural plant killers? Also would have liked the female bodyguard to have had an action scene or something hahaha or if it's confirmed whether or not the FL was originally reborn back into this world since she herself isn't sure (originally she switched bodies and dreamt that Fu Ruoruo is happily living with her parents, later on she stopped feeling the original bodies feelings or memories and had to imagined how the original would feel seeing the Fu father, but near the end she's speculating "was I originally...?" So that's a mystery that's never solved or maybe I misunderstood idk I haven't read the extra chapters)

The first 30 chapters is so cute. The relationship between FL and her baby son is so cute and teary and amazing.

The rest is okay, the relationship between ML and FL are good. Almost plain.

But, I really hate revenge theme. So tired...... Face slapping etc, I don't feel peace at reading for this most heartwarming story..... turned into a dogblood relationship's story. I really can't enjoy the story anymore.....

I'm in doubt whether to rate this 4 or 3 star. The story was good. It started good until the later part of the story. It ended abruptly and no extra stories. The face slapping was meh.

For the good parts, I like how the MC choose to live stream planting. Contrary to most novels who go live stream, they would choose cooking. I love the village people and also the children. In most novels I read, village people would be mean to single mothers, especially ones like the MC who... more>> is an outsider.

I love how the ML was first introduced.

Spoiler

Skipping work because his flower died. Lol

In fact, in the later chapters, his character became inconsistent. He was first portrayed as a languid and adorable, but later the languidness disappeared. He suddenly became mature, calm and OP. His OP hidden background is also a little too unjustified.

[collapse]

Spoiler

That was until the child, Wenwen, found out about that ML is his biological dad. He turned into a brat. What happened to his 30-year-old soul!? He started to become unreasonable.

I get that his resentment came from his past life when he was an orphan, but in that past life the ML was not his biological father.

Which is one of my gripe because the truth was never found out. He did not know all the conspiracies of that past and down right blamed everything on the MC at first for abandoning him and the ML for appearing in his past life.

It was a good read when he found out that his mother, the MC, didn't actually abandon him but died after he was born. It was heartwarming and all, but the same was not done for his father, the ML. Although, Wenwen heard that the ML had no knowledge about having a son, he was still hostile towards his father. Those father and son interactions in the past disappeared. When ML was still labeled an uncle, they were very close, but it disappeared after finding out about their relationship and never returned to being close. Although, in the last few chapters his hostility towards his father mellowed out, but it's still not the same. I missed the time before Wenwen found out ML was his dad. And the MC noticed that Wenwen had some hostility against his father even before he knew about the ML. But she never assured Wenwen about that. She just let her child have a crooked view about his 'father'. Even when she told Wenwen about the ML being his father, she did not try to consult him about it. I felt unfair for the ML.

I was really disappointed.

The ML was so good to them, yet they took him for granted.

[collapse]

The MC is tolerable, but I could not come to like her.

What also disappointed me is the ending for me was cut. Not rushed nor abrupt, but cut. There was no conclusion in the ending. Some truths were never revealed. There were no extra stories of Wenwen growing up. I'm also disappointed that Wenwen's maturity disappeared. I get that he wanted to enjoy his childhood that he never had in his past life. The author seem to have forgotten that no matter what, Wenwen soul is still a 30-year-old's soul. Maturity is bone deep that is not defined by age, but by experience and mental stability.

Spoiler

In the last chapter, MC and ML were still boyfriend and girlfriend. There was no proper conclusion to their romance. It was more like forced.

[collapse]

Would I read it again? Probably not. The ending was not satisfying. In fact, it did not satisfy anything at all. No extra stories. No wedding, no sibling for Wenwen etc. <<less

Ok so, the story started out really nice and engaging. But by the 92nd chapter I was fed up.

Spoiler

The child refuses to accept the ML as his father even though they have been interacting for more than a year. The MC, for me at least, became too annoying and soft. Later instead of being cute and a little spoilt the child turns into a full fledged brat.

[collapse]

There are other antogistic characters which keep popping up and are never solved. It's a solid 'meh' book for me.

It's a fairly good story. Kind of like slow life, slow romance. Not too much issues. Face-slapping is done mostly by ML coz MC is least bothered about it haha. MC son (aka the villain) IS THE BEST ever. He is so cute and cuddly and once he realises his mother won't abandon him, he gives up and becomes a true child. This is so rare especially with most stories filled with kids being adult-like due to their old adult true self. We all always talk about how we want... more>> to go back to our school days of playing, running around etc etc but when it comes to stories suddenly 10 year olds are attending board meetings and stepping into the adult world. In this story, MC Son decides to enjoy being a child and subconsciously becomes a true child too. He plays with other kids his age even though he is more mature than them, throws tantrums, bursts into tears (Yes! Crying loud!), acts cute with his mother wanting her to pamper him etc etc. In the entire story, u will never believe he was once an adult and that he carries his memories of being an adult.

Wonderful novel if you want to read about a cute mom-son relationship, cute but grumpy Grandpa and villagers who are totally nice and not judgemental at all and who protect MC and her son from outsiders fiercely. And this is despite the fact that MC Son was born out of wedlock and should have been looked down by conservative villager mindset. Instead, it's MC's dad - a big shot businessman living in the big city who looks down on MC. I liked this contrast. Most novels show villagers as gossipy, judgemental people who are v bad in character and education but this novel has portrayed them wonderfully. <<less

This is the type of story where the more I read, the more I dislike it. It had a lot of potential at first, but it was ruined time and time again by the author's inadequacy.

First problem: author is trying to do multiple genres at once, but failing to live up to any of them. The showbiz plot is unsatisfying because the MC is unrealistically lucky to the point of "OFL with a protag halo". The family drama plot is unsatisfying because the author doesn't get into it, only introduces... more>> it for the sake of conflict so MC will have a reason to be bullied. The found family angle is unsatisfying because the author doesn't know how to build up relationship and character development. Even the "unknown one night stand courting MC" plot is unsatisfying because it's written in such a problematic, mysogynistic way. The only part that I liked was the MC's son's scenes, so I got annoyed every time it was interrupted for the story.

Second problem: I already mentioned above, but the author has a really problematic and mysogynistic way of writing. The MC is a weak wilting flower who is never able to do anything for herself except be a good wifey. Her own child and ML infantilize her while simultaneously insulting her intelligence.

Third problem: the writing is bad, full stop. It's the whole nine yards. Characters suddenly act OOC for the sake of a scene the author wanted to include, the internet fans are unrealistic, repeating information, relevant plot details are dropped when they interfere with the direction author wants to go, MC and main CP are not interesting, 0 build up to things (just going straight to the outcome the author wants), side characters don't have developed lives outside of the story, etc.

I can probably come up with more problems but thinking about all the issues makes my brain hurt.

I would only suggest reading this if you're bored and looking for something to read with your brain turned off. <<less

The story idea is pretty typical but it does have some unique features that make it different enough to stand on its own. For one, the MC is not obsessed with revenge despite their being a history of abuse and people trying to hurt them. She is just doing her own thing. The fact that her son is reborn is not too off-putting though it gets a little weird toward the later chapters what with him acting childish despite being a man inside. Still, I can understand that part. The... more>> guy never had a childhood and spent most of his life striving for something.

The only thing that is putting me off and made me decide to put a pause on reading future chapters is the ML.

Spoiler

Basically, he rap*d the MC under the influence of something. He wasn't aware of who it was but when he saw the child, he suddenly remembered and did a dna test. That was the first thing that was weird but not necessarily off putting. Like how can you assume the kid is yours? So many children in the region that is the same age but this one is your son? And then you don't ask permission to do a DNA from the mother? His behavior becomes worse once he verifies. He becomes possessive of both MC and her son, assumes that they are a family when neither the child and MC know that he is the father. The possessiveness becomes worse once they move. He acts like he's the father when they go to the daycare. Worse still, when another man shows interest, he stakes his "claim" on the MC. Like bro, she doesn’t want you.

[collapse]

I do blame the MC a little by not insisting on boundaries. She does feel uncomfortable and even thinks about talking to the ML about it but she never does. He keeps creeping into her personal space and makes her feel uncomfortable and yet nothing is said. The people around her are also letting it happened, even facilitating his behavior and I don't like it. It makes me uncomfortable and I don't like to continue reading this that make me feel that way.

I'm not saying it's a bad story but please be aware that these things before you start. <<less
