Yu Zhengdu joined a small start-up company that claimed to offer “life management services”……as a programmer.

On his first day in office, he received a phone call from a stranger: “Hello, I received a text message from your company that informed me of my reincarnation tomorrow……”

Yu Zhengdu: “……??”

Shang Que, the beautiful little boss, said, “New employee, welcome to the Hell organisation in the human world. A thousand years ago, I was known to the human world as the Ghost King of Luofeng Mountain.”

Yu Zhengdu: “……??” From then on, he was incredibly distressed about the development of Hell.

OK HEAR ME OUT EVERYONE

  • A story where the MC is an amazing programmer WITHOUT s*upid HACKING INTO EVERYTHING TO GET WHAT HE WANTS
  • A story where despite being the CEO, THE ML ISNT A ROCK AND ACTUALLY HAS A PERSONALITY
  • A story where THE SIDE CHARACTERS ARENT ONE DIMENSIONAL AND FORGETTABLE
  • A story where the RELATIONSHIP ISN'T SPONTANEOUS AND DEVELOPS NATURALLY WITH HILARIOUS PLOTLINES. A RELATIONSHIP WHERE BOTH SIDES HAVE QUALITIES TO OFFER
Funny+Good characters+Interesting plot+No dumb cliches I rest my case.

Fantastic story! Collision and integration of two opposite worlds, underworld and technology, in countless humorous situations, creating a fun comedy.

The society is changing, the number of materialist is growing, but it doesn't cease the workload of a Hell organization respinsible for handling ghosts, spirits and reincarnation. Don't want to be reborn as a pig and disturb the living? You're arrested and forcefully reincarnated. Your relatives haven't burnt you a single set of clothes? We've got you covered. And remember, don't pass through the walls, use doors, we're in human world... more>> now. But they're barely floating, after all ghost money don't work in the world of the living and also they need someone who will help them to ease the workload. After all, computers and cellphones are helpful, but it's still not enough. They need a programmer! Scrapping the budget they hire Yu Zhengdu, who doesn't only become the source of their rapidly rising income, but also the pillar of great storytelling.

MC is a lively, hard-working young man, his worldview as a materialist gets shattered, but he adapts quickly integrating technology with underworld, his only concern is their broke-ass boss.

ML takes the role of a stoic, otherwordly handsome man, who is actually a Ghost King. His proud demeanour will leave you speechless, even when he shamelessly gives you the barcode for payment. We're a Hell organization, we don't negotiate.

Totally recommended. I'm having so much fun with this novel. Even if events get dark at times, the author doesn't allow you to get depressed and changes the mood completely, so I really appreciate this positive view on things. <<less

Just finished reading this and I'm totally like it very much!

I feel sorry for the MC but I'm still laughing so hard about his miserable worklife. Please forgive me, Yu Zhengdu!

Well, I can't say much but the premise story kinda interesting. The story still light so you don't have to use your brain for thinking so much. Just enjoy the comedy for now, it's really funny and interesting!

( ((Well, I'm not really good for writing a review lol If I like it, I will say I like it... more>> and don't bother to point out the matter I dislike. If you have a time and like a light story with some comedy, maybe you can try reading this!))) <<less

This has been a funny and mostly lighthearted story so far with occasional creepiness.

The story is about Hell currently being a company in the human world that manages reincarnations, captures and deals with troublemaking ghosts, etc. Our MC, who is a programmer, manages to land himself a job in the company as the only human employee and quickly adapts to life among ghosts. Thankfully, the MC deals with all the supernatural occurrences calmly and without being cowardly about it. He also thinks fast on his feet and finds unexpected ways... more>> to deal with situations. He is competent in what he does and doesn't boast about it even when needled. Overall, he is level-headed, but in no way cold. He behaves like a normal compassionate, sensible human, which is a bit rare to see in c-novels these days.

The MC is often joined by his boss, the ML, and goes through various supernatural situations that are always solved in surprisingly simple technological ways. It's hilarious to see the reactions of the bystanders and the way their world views shatter before being rearranged due to something the MC or ML casually do or say.

The ML is a powerful ghost king and has the respect and fear of all ghosts. He is also dirt poor despite being the boss of his company, which is a nice twist. Though he may appear aloof and arrogant on the outside, he actually has a somewhat adorable and prideful character that he openly shows to the MC. I love how he is with the MC and all their interactions. As of chapter 39, there has been no significant romantic development between them (though the ML already shows signs of attachment to the MC), but they have developed a friendly rapport. Personally, I think it's good to see them growing closer before romance can come into play.

The side characters are all funny yet well done as well. It's good to see how even people who once opposed or looked down on the MC and ML end up becoming their allies or come to admire them. It's a pleasant change from stories where anyone who even looks at the MCs wrong gets face-slapped to miserable ends. Though there is face-slapping here as well, it's done without being petty and doesn't go too far.

Both the original writing and the translation are done very well. I like that there is some actual information given about the world's background and relevant things at appropriate times. It adds so much more depth to the story.

Overall, it kept me thoroughly entertained with the characters' antics and some of the situations. I highly recommend it! <<less

It is not my cup of tea, but it is a good comedy from what I have read, if there were no labels that suggest romance or the development of a love relationship, it could easily pass as an excellent 4-star comedy and even reach 5 with some adjustments or depending on the taste of each one, but I feel that pairing the MC with ML takes away charm for my taste, lowering the quality of the story in this regard to a 3. If you only like the BL... more>> is a 4 for sure, but if you care about developing a healthy relationship when the story can afford it then you will have mixed feelings like me, because the story is great but the little details about the couple bother me a lot, and I would change the label from yaoi to shonen ai because even Where I am, there has been nothing but friendly hugs and pats.

Spoiler

I hate the characters that are a couple and both emotionally dense but that are not dense for other topics, one does not speak and the other assumes, this is not mathematics where negative by negative gives positive, 88 chapters and I do not feel the romance of MC to ML as ML does it and it would not be so annoying if he not only thought about rejecting before thinking about how he feels about it, someone else has to make him reflect and even so it takes him to accept the situation until he correctly notices ML's attitude towards him, But before saying something about it, ML discovers that MC was going to reject him and decides to walk away childishly, and MC doesn't say anything as if ML's feelings at that moment did not matter, treating him only as a tantrum, it is true that ML is, but if he cared about his feelings he would not let such misunderstandings occur, ML can be a total tsundere regarding MC, but he pays in every way the feelings he thinks he receives from MC, he could justify that MC stopped lad or ML's feelings when he didn't know he liked him even though he was taking advantage of the obvious favoritism that he gave him, but now it's as if he took ML for granted as always, I'm a firm believer in reciprocity and the MC professionally It is very good but personally it is not worth more than a friend.

[collapse]

I will wait for them to finish translating it for rereading because the translation is very good even though, But what do I know about English? I don't speak it well, but I want to verify that I didn't misunderstand anything in MTL, it's easy to read but I would rather make sure of it because the story seriously I liked omitting the implicit romance

I will reissue my comment when I finish reading, but for the moment I will give it 4 stars because the love relationship is unnecessary for the comic dynamics between MC and ML, if the story improves from where I stayed I will upload it to 5 but I feel it will not happen because it is a couple that is romantic but does not warm your heart, they are more a fine * claps on the shoulder *, which makes me feel sorry for ML, someone so old and unable to experience good love <<less

I couldn't wait for the next translated chapters so I went and MTLed it, but didn't finish reading it.

The MC is funny and resourceful, I like his personality. The side characters are noy 2Ds. The subplots are nice.

It's the ML that made me drop this. He's supposed to have lived for a very long time but acts like an immature twenty year old. I waited for an explanation why his personality doesn't fit for someone who outlived and watched many human lifetimes, even something like being old made him forget... more>> some things and to cope with such many info he had collected his brain reset 😐

Even if this is mostly fluff, the way the ML acts doesn't just make any sense. It's nice read though if you can overlook that. <<less

This is one of maybe 3 BL novels that I constantly check on whenever I come back to the site. Definitely one of the funniest BL novels I've ever read - the blending of technology and the supernatural is just too good. MC is talented and level-headed, which is why it's all the more hilarious that he takes his job as the only human in the afterlife company so seriously. ML (MC's boss and also a ghost king) is great too - the contrast between his power and his lack... more>> of common sense is expressed well, and his jealousy at not wanting the MC to be headhunted by other companies is also cute! <<less

Mtled the novel. Very satisfied!!!

What I got from this novel is...

WHO SAID SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY and SUPERSTITIONS DO NOT MATCH TOGETHER?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?! LOOK AT MC and ML!!!!

The comedy, romance, the plot. I like them so much! The story was explained well. Nothing is left unexplained (from what I read from the mtl)

Note: mother/father in law was satisfied with MC ♡♡♡

Waiting for the translator to finish translating this gem. Btw good job for the author and translator!!!

I wasn't too sure about this but I'm surper happy that I did try it. It's so funny. I love the MC because he doesn't really care about his appearance or that he's an amazing programmer. The romance between the ML and the MC is kind of there but also not there. It reminds me of Devil Grandmaster with the way the romance started in the beginning. There is just an undertone of it at the moment. But I definitely see it hitting the fan probably in like another 50... more>> chapters at least <<less

High technology meet supernatural. Great novel, wonderful storytelling and good sense of humour. The kind of novel I would recommend to everyone.

Overall, it's a story of the living and breathing programmer working in HELL company, which was super broken dirt poor, plus his co-workers were all ghost (at first, there were living human working when the story go on).

MC and ML were likable and both created humour in the story. I love every characters, every setting, the plot and the overall feeling. Everything was too good. I laughed so hard... more>> and love every second of it.

This novel will make you smile. Highly recommended. <<less

This is a funny light-hearted comedy about a computer and app programmer who accidentally joins a company involved in managing ghosts and their reincarnations. He shifts from being a firm atheist to a believer in the supernatural.

It is an entertaining read. There are small amounts of dramatic horror and action, but most of it is just fun in the company with the MC doing his job. Although this series is tagged as a BL, that genre doesn't contribute much, and the series thus far can be read as not having... more>> any romance. The BL is so minor, it shouldn't stop anyone from reading this series.

The biggest detriment of this series is how often it pushes socialism out there. It just randomly talks about how great socialism is and how they're following socialist values, even if they're actually working as capitalists for an assignment. I think it's supposed to be a gag, but it can be off-putting.

If you just want to read a series for laughs, then this one is worth checking out. <<less

At first, this novel seemed more like a comedy than a romance. There were some really funny and satisfying moments that established the MC and ML's relationship dynamic. It's more enjoyable because it's a realistic, slow-building of feelings. From the MC wanting to quit the job on day one to thinking about the company's future.. It's really, really good. The side characters are also interesting and added to the enjoyment of the story. Highly recommended *thumbs up*

Love it, Peppa is so cute. ❤ Glad that MC didn't turn out to be some super powered person in his last life as is often a trope in these stories.

The way MC and ML got together was hilarious. Definitely a solid read.
