Really, Really Miss You

Description

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

Our male and female lead are in the online entertainment circle, he on the dubbing side and she on the music cover side. The circle is one where physical appearance is generally anonymous and you are known by your online handle and your voice. Gu Sheng, a relatively unknown online singer who goes by the handle Sheng Sheng Man and who specializes in cover songs of ancient-style music, is a huge fan of Qiang Qing Ci, a very famous and well-loved CV (character voice) artist (i.e. dubber, voiceover artist). It was like, love at first listen.

One morning, she was chatting with a friend in her online “room” when his voice suddenly appeared in her headset, describing to her in detail how to prepare a food dish she had been talking about. This began their online chats about food. Gu Sheng can scarcely believe that she is talking to her idol, and he seems to be trying to progress the relationship further.

This is a very "shoujo" story. Since I somewhat enjoyed reading it, I don't want to start by saying too many negative things about it. Basically, your enjoyment of this story will depend on your answer to these questions:

- Are you bored?
- Do you like stories like Twilight?
- Are you ok with completely passive female characters?
- Are you looking for a story with a hot, mysterious "prince" character that is suddenly and completely devoted to the female main character?
- Do you not care too much about... more>> the story/plot, as long as the romance/flirting makes your heart pound?

If you answered YES, you will enjoy this story, so go ahead and read it. You don't have to read the rest of my review.

However, if you answered NO to any of those questions, I want to caution you:

- This is one of those stories where the female character is a completely "blank slate."
AKA, the type of story where young female readers can easily imagine that they are the main girl (like Bella). You have no idea what she looks like or what her main qualities are, all you know is that she's shy, talented, and good looking, and for some inexplicable reason, the hot male MC is completely smitten with her.

- If you want to read this story because you're interested in the "voice acting" and "food" part of it, you may be disappointed.
The entire story takes place within the online voice acting/music circle, but they don't ever get into the technicalities or details of it. Every scene can be summarized like this: "Everyone is super talented, the female main character is shy, they make some music/voice stuff, the final product is awesome."
I was really interested in their discussions about food, but in reality it's just the main male character quickly explaining a recipe step-by-step for 1-2 paragraphs, and then the female main character stutters and says nothing back. I don't think she actually ended up spending any time making any of the recipes he gave her, either. She just eats his food later and enjoys it. (The author spends no time describing how the food actually was. It's just quickly described as "perfect" or "delicious" and that's it.)

- There is zero drama in this story and the pacing is very slow.
So unless you're bored, have time to spare, or have fallen in love with the main male character, this story won't excite you. Don't expect any strife, angst, arguments, or difficulties of any kind. It's more like a "enjoy reading a simple romance very slowly" sort of thing.

- If you aren't a fan of passive female characters, you won't like this main character at all.
She seriously doesn't do ANYTHING for the entire novel. Her reaction to everything and anything is to be "so shocked and surprised that her mind went blank for several minutes, and by the time she came back to reality, several things had happened already." (I'm not kidding. She just freezes up and lets other people take the lead.)
I also had an extremely hard time believing in her relationship with the main male character because she barely says anything to him, doesn't do anything to help him, etc... What type of hot, rich, talented, genius, super-star guy would actually like a girl who just stutters and does nothing? (This story requires extreme suspension of disbelief.)

Spoiler

I also dislike how she is so passive that she lets him make every single decision regarding their relationship. He doesn't ask if she wants to date him -- he just tells someone she's his girlfriend, and she goes along with it. He doesn't wait for her to take any initiative s*xually -- he just goes for it every time while she's frozen for the entire thing. He doesn't ask her if she wants to get married -- he just goes to her parents without her knowledge, then brings her to sign the certificate in a daze. Maybe this is normal in Chinese romance (?), but as a reader who likes when females have brains and opinions... it was very frustrating.

[collapse]

HOWEVER, I do want to say that the translation quality was very good. The translator really took the time to translate all of the songs mentioned, put links to videos/audio of the music, photos of each of the food dishes described, etc. Big kudos to the translator for doing such a thorough job. <<less

So sweet my teeth ached :D

Those who like 'A Slight Smile Is Very Charming' should love this. They kinda have a similar vibe: online+real world, famous/perfect male lead falling in love and expertly/nonchalantly/sneakily/openly (lol) courting the girl. Swoon-worthy moments ensue.

A very sweet, angst-free, happy read.

Eh... for some reason, I enjoyed reading this while the two leads were interacting online, but once it transferred to the real world, I lost interest... the female lead has no witty comebacks at all to the teasing, preferring to respond with silence and blushing, she is completely passive in the relationship. I got the feeling that if the male lead hadn't been so insistent on having her, nothing would have happened. That being said, their online relationship was really cute.

I skipped to the epilogue from chapter 40, and I... more>> don't think I'll read the in between chapters. <<less

Ughhhh I was suffering from withdrawals even before I read the epilogue chapters. Please can I order myself a copy of the ML too thanks? The MC was better than the one in Summer Tea and wayy better than the one I glimpsed in Squid, though I do get irritated by her constant confusion and "being one beat behind." Though I guess it would make sense if she's so taken by his voice, but that's something I can't imagine myself being obsessed with. She slightly improves later on in the... more>> story, especially after they start being together, but sometimes I'm pretty frustrated by her indecisiveness and the ease with which the ML is able to use his voice to make the MC do anything. Why do all of these female MCs have to be naive and spaced out like this with love? At least in Beautiful When You Smile the girl already had a boyfriend and is able to talk and argue directly with the ML even though he was also her idol. Nonetheless, still love and enjoy the diabetes I got from this story. Plus the constant mention of food and music. Now I feel hungry. <<less

Pick up this novel if you are looking for an easy read with lots and lots of happy, squeal-worthy moments. The really good thing about this novel is that both the leads, Sheng Sheng & Mo Qingcheng, are truly devoted to each other and there is no room for any third party. To sum up, I would say this novel is fluffy, romantic, angst-free and introduces you to some really good ancient style chinese music.

Warning : Do NOT read this novel at night, or you'll surely suffer from hunger pangs,... more>> seeing all these amazing dishes featured throughout the story. <<less

Cute! Short! Fluffy! Sweet!

That pretty much sums up the romance and the entire book.

One thing that stands out for me is the music that accompanies this novel. The translator has been kind enough to not only link to the music mentioned in the novel, but also translate the lyrics. Thanks, love. Putting the music on while reading the book makes the immersion infinitely better. The clear male voice and the sweet female accompaniment singing in the background make the reading experience so memorable. I can just picture it...... more>> or should I say, "hear it"?

Though the story and romance is nothing noteworthy, this book is worth reading just for the text+audio experience. It's relatively short. It's a feel-good book. It's completed. It's got good translations. It's bound to bring a smile to your face and warm your heart. So what are you waiting for? <<less

This was such a sweet, cute, wonderful book. I absolutely loved the relationship between the two main leads. The progression of their romance is so cute and wonderfully sweet to read. If you enjoyed a Slight Smile is Very Alluring you will most likely enjoy this book as well as it shares some similarities. After reading SSVS and watching the drama I thought Xiao Nae was my ultimate CN hero, but I have to say that after reading RRMY, Toupai definitively gives him a run for his money. I so... more>> need this novel to be made into a drama, with Yang Yang as the main lead of course so I can accurately compare. This book is a must read for any CN fan. Trust me you will not regret it. <<less

I feel like this is very masterfully written. Big kudos to the translators (and likely the author) - I found that the way the story was written, you could really "hear" the voices in the dialogues. Also, usually with slow dialogue, a story can get boring; In this case it did not. The dialogue felt very real - usually short sound effects as responses (like 'un' or 'uh' etc) don't really ever fit too well, but in this story all of the short sound effects fit the dialogue perfectly.

I'm really... more>> surprised I enjoyed a story with such a slow pacing as much as I did. I also find the romance very logical. Usually a romance requires some form of ignoring logic or reasoning when considering character interactions and actions.
Spoiler

In this case, I would normally find the male lead's intensity in pursuing the female lead to be odd - but once you find out that he fell in love with her voice years before, you can understand how from a psychological point of view, he had probably been searching for her for quite some time and immediately latched on without letting go because he was unable to find her after hearing the initial recording of her humming.

Basically, the part I would usually find illogical - the reasoning behind the male MC being so relentless - turns out to be very logical in actuality. Also, because of how it's written, you have a vague feeling the whole time that he's very deliberately pursuing her and that there is some reason behind it.

[collapse]

Very well done. I also have to say, after reading this and a few other Chinese romance novels, I have come to the conclusion that I find them much more appealing to read than Japanese or Korean romance novels, and it's precisely because of the whole logical romance aspect to them. Korean romance novels tend to be a little more logical as well but these Chinese romance novels just seem to feel very realistic in terms of character motivation and interaction. <<less

Gu Sheng is sweet girl who any die hard fan can relate to. She falls into her hero worship daze so often its hilarious.

Qiang Qing Ci is your typical, All round perfect MC. He is also a very sly.

If you liked 'a slight smile is very charming' you can give this a try but the romance here is very slow and more manipulative that the former.

At first I thought I would find this book boring, and so it is been in my “Plan to Read” list for quite some time. Until I got encourage to read this book when it is one of my friend’s top 5 favorite books. It is simply worth it. There is no antagonists, it is simply a book full of cuteness and sweetness. I usually don’t comment but this book is worth it. Do not hesitate if you are thinking if you should read it or not, just go for... more>> it and read. It is good, I promise. <<less

This story is most about the romance between the two leads Gu Sheng and Qiang Qing Ci, and not much else. The setting is initially on forums and social media but soon moves offline. It is sweet and gives a lot of WAFF moments... in between the periods of awkward silence. Was I the only one who found their interaction somewhat stifled?

... more>>
Spoiler

As stated their primary and initial interaction is online, but QQC’s expression of interest in most of the early chapters is reciting recipes, dropping hints and occasionally posting vague messages, while GS is overwhelmed by the attention of her idol and responds mainly with Mmn or by blushing. It doesn’t really improve later on but they do get the opportunity to do this offline...

The main couple and their friends share an elementary school mentality and made school yard jokes, so attempts at humour weren’t quite successful. While the later half of the story seemed to drag a bit. Also noticed QQC likes to jump ahead of himself in public declarations and only really asks her after... no biggie but WAFF moments would be nicer if the leads could at some point talk to each other properly.

Also not a huge fan of the whole idol/fanbase setting and language but that's probably a personal thing so I won’t rate it lower for it. Love declarations for idols seem a little over the top for me.

[collapse]

Did really appreciate the translator’s efforts in translating the songs and their backgrounds, so I’ll bump it up to 3/5, but the story itself really shouldn't be more than 2/5.

Recommendations/Upgrades: A Slight Smile is Very Charming is quite similar in terms of set up however the quality of their interactions and the overall story are significantly better. There's also a lot more parallels with Just Blame Me For Being Blind in the Beginning, but again, the characters and their interactions were leagues ahead.

Spoiler

While the female lead meets her idol in the gaming world (who happens to be her idol irl as well) she can hold actual conversations with him and part of that glittery aspect is replaced by real emotions. The male lead also has few words, but has a rather dark sense of humour – which he uses more on the supporting cast than the female lead. The MMORPG setting also dilutes the need for conversation as they can build trust through teamwork, while they avoid public declarations, making their relationship more intimate and allowing them to interact as equals.

In RRMY, the male lead’s fans pretty much know everything the same time the MC does... and the ‘sweetness’ of their relationship really relies on his fans telling us so.

We are all Gu Sheng, waiting for a Qing Ci.

No matter how many times I read and re-read this story, that was what passed my mind. There’s no angst, no love rival, no backstabbing, just sweetness overload stemmed from an unusual ‘courting’ between two talented online celebrities. Nothing stands out from the initial premise, but it is Mo Bao Fei Bao work, and as usual, she managed to make something extraordinary from cliches. Additionally, the setting and background are very realistic and interesting. Also, the characters are so loveable and... more>> we as the readers can easily identify ourselves with them. It is definitely a must read for romance novel fans. <<less

This story is 100% fluff. Cotton candy fluff. Its a perfect read for when you don't want to spend too much time reading but want to end up grinning from ear to ear. There are a lot of adorable moments and you genuinely root for the leads to get together. I wouldn't say Toupai DaRen is a conventional cold lead because he does have other sides to him. He's aloof, maybe and just a bit withdrawn for a celebrity but his character comes across as genuine and humble. The author... more>> did a good job of subtly showing us different planes of his personality, in the way he reacts to his friends or his fans, with how he communicates with the FL.

I just wish the female lead had a bit more... character? Throughout the novel, it seems like shes just pushed into a bunch of situations without knowing what the hell to do. So she just keeps going with the flow. I wish she'd just open her mouth and ask - anything, something. It's like she has a permanent brain freeze. Quite frankly, she is extremely boring. As a result, the ML has to do a lot of the guiding and push the relationship forward.

All things aside, this was an enjoyable read. 3.5, rounded to 4. As usual, hoju's translation was A++! <<less

This novel is alright, forgettable. If you like a MC with minimal thoughts and just go along with the pace of the ML then this is worthwhile. I found it boring in how she doesn't really say anything much verbally. I feel like she is a blank slate?

Very fluffy. The translator has done an amazing job in translating song lyrics, food recipes and the overall story with the small explanations and the cute pictures!!!! Loved the translation! One of the very best that I have read! The MC is kind of air-headed but not in an annoying way but kind of a cute one. The ML is super black-belly. He manages to cloak his possessiveness with concern and inserts himself into her life so completely and seamlessly, that it was very interesting to read. And the best... more>> part is how he is completely aware that MC is most amiable and crazy over his voice and uses his voice to ensure she does and goes in the direction he wants her to go 😂😂 <<less

The story was okay, I literally had to force myself to focus while reading. Why? Because my head just wasn't really into this novel as much as I would had like to.

Long story short, even though I had to force myself to read I did enjoy this novel to some point.... but it sort of got boring near the end. It was painful, well at least to me it was. I didn't really favorite the ending. I felt like the writer could had done a better job of ending... more>> it. The ending felt rather rushed, like the author didn't know how to continue the story so she needed to end it like how it ended.

Also to me the epilogue didn't feel like an epilogue. It was like the writer felt the need to write an epilogue but really the epilogue was just the continuation of the last chapter. Why? Because in most epilogue it would let you have a look into their future together. Such as letting us see their kids being born or something. But this epilogue didn't do that.

Overall I'll be honest, I feel a little disappointment to this story. It wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but I did enjoy the first half. So I give it a 3 star. <<less

If you just want to be happy or if you just want a cute love story without all the unnecessary angst and drama... then this novel is for you. This is a heartwarming and satisfying love story. It will make you want to have a boyfriend like the ML. Ahh.. I want a Toupai of my own now. :')
