What was it like to have a top boss who is mysterious and powerful in the eyes of the outside world when he was a virtuous husband and perfect in the roles of washing clothes, cooking food, and taking care of the children for you every day?

The overbearing female President Zu Jin: Cool!

Zu Jin took a fancy to this man after taking an insightful look at him on the side of the road.

He was tall and handsome; he was calm and quiet. He looked easy to control…….

However, when she was about to take the initiative to attack and pursue him, she accidentally learned of the man’s true identity.

Zu Jin was extremely disappointed: I wanted to catch you. After we marry, I will earn money to support the family and you can be a full time cook and take care of the children. But who would have known you had this kind of identity.

……what else can I say.

The man calmly smiled: I think your idea is feasible.

Zu Jin: Slips away~

Really simple story so far. A romance between a career woman and a stay-at-home lover (who's not exactly a rice bag).
The premise sounds good and the execution so far is pretty chill. Given that it's a short story, I'd say it's ratings are a bit biased. Maybe not for everyone, since the pace might be a bit fast but it is rather understandable considering the position of working adults. The story is completely my cup of tea though.

Its a very good story. Very refreshing I guess. I really like their compatibility. I like people who knows exactly what they want.

Both their parents have issues that can be said to be from a typical dog blood drama.

All in all it was a good read just one thing im unsatisfied about, ... more>>

i want something to atleast happened to MC's friend xio tong. The one who betrayed her. Hm, how could you just reveal confidential documents to enemies when you know exactly well that it will harm her just because that enemy once bought you sanitary pads before. Like what?

Hi, I'm the translator for this novel. Thus, this will be a biased review.

The novel is about the romance between a strong career woman and a man who supports her goals. He eventually becomes a house husband for her.

The romance in the novel moves quickly, but it is also very mature. The couple are very good about communicating with each other, and it's really nice to see a relationship where both parties are willing to apologize and admit to their faults.

Additionally, I really like the female lead for being very... more>> straightforward, intelligent, and older (she's 35 years old at the start). She knows what she wants in life and has a very good sense of how to navigate in a patriarchal society as a female in a position of power. Some of her thoughts provides comedic relief during the story, while other times it shows how human she is.

I think for this author's first novel, it's a really good novel. I hope you will like my translation and thank you for reading my review! <<less

Such a refreshing novel.

It's always loads of fun to read dog blood or romance novel with domineering President characters but real relationships are almost never this explosive. Most common relationships start with nervousness and hesitancy with amplified sweet moments that evolve to absolute routines that provides stability and steady source of care and dependence, especially in marriages. After all, it takes a lot of understanding, conversations and compromises to maintain a steady relationship. And this novel shows a glimpses of a such a romance betwee a highly ambitious, career oriented... more>> woman who striving to reach the goals she has set for herself and a supportive man who values family, with a modern NO misogynistic or male chavonistic thinking.

This novel is a little blunt, with extremely fast progress of relationship. Yet it still hold interest and charm with its steady mature adult thinking and how tangled human relationships can be. The story has some really sweet moments mixed in with work based thinking process of the MC and het navigating inter personal relationships. Later, it progresses to how the married relationship is maintained and how both partners seemed to have adjusted and accepted each other's characters.

Of course this is a too good to be true male lead but it was refreshing to read such a relationship dynamics in a chinese novel with a career successful man ready to take the house-husband route and head strong dominant woman who takes her career accomplishments to be a gained a necessity even after marriage.

Not that the novel doesn't have its shares of issues but its a quick read and if you debating whether to pick it up or not - I would say go for it. Atleast it won't leave you with an unsatisfied ending. <<less
