Rebirth of a Movie Star


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

In his previous life Bai Lang was a small star. He rejected his boss and stupidly engaged in a relationship which he thought was true love.

He didn’t expect that he would get betrayed, die of a heart attack and trouble his boss to accompany him on his last journey.

After his rebirth, he decided to give up on true love. As for his boss… since he wants something then just let him have it ba.

So this little star after his rebirth collected his boss, and then it became a true love story with his boss.

In between there are good friends/love rivals/scum men in the mix. A sweet story with a happy ending.

This is a really good novel! The plot is really well thought of and even though there are small time skips, author didn't forget to reveal what happened in between. Basically, the MC accidentally went back in time and decided to live his life without connections to the people who made his previous life miserable. He has a very good mindset and is level-headed when it comes to his decisions. ML is at first a scum but he fell in love with our MC so he turned into a doting... more>> ML haha. It's good that he isn't too OP, I think this is actually the first time I saw an ML to have a huge misfortune that isn't connected to our MC.

It lost one star because the style of writing isn't my cup of tea. It's mostly narrative and there are only a number of dialogue. The most "talk" we've gotten is from a Forum inside the novel lol. Also, there could be more to the story but the author opted to let it slide


Like who's the mother of ML's child?


Nonetheless, for a 1day read this one of the best. <<less

This is one of the sweetest novel ever. You can get over with the meng scenes of the ML and MC. They are just so adorable. Highly recommended for everyone to read this. Trust me, you won't regret.

However, some parts of the novel are little too dramatic tbh, and some are overly descriptive. So, you may have to skip all those nonsense. Other than that story is simply amazing so far.

New to the danmei world but not new to the the whole reincarnation genre. I really enjoyed this story! It's short for a webnovel (61-ish chapters of the main story + 5-ish side stories), but it was done well. Basic premise is the same as most reincarnation novels, but I liked the application much better. There is some sweet revenge parts but it's not like the MC is completely and utterly obsessed by getting payback. In fact, revenge seems to be a side dish in the MC's intent to live... more>> a better life this time around, and he absolutely has a much better life! I think that the most satisfying part is just how he was able to overcome the hurts of his past life and channel his new self into his new life with the ML and the ML's adorable son.

Romance was written well and realistic, no insta-love here. The relationship developed throughout the story, and the MC and ML discussed any jealousies and issues that came up pretty maturely, which I appreciated since both of them are adults. The ML is the alpha-male, CEO, controlling type but it wasn't so over the top that I couldn't stomach it. He actually does manage to think about the MC's feelings and concede to the MC's wishes on certain scenarios. He's also the driver of a lot of the revenge schemes, but he always does it with the MC's consent.

The epilogue and side stories are also very enjoyable and they left me hungry for more. All in all, a very sweet, realistic romance story that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. <<less

Just finished the story, its pretty cute and heartwarming, I especially like the cute little kid. I'm just a little confused why this story doesn't have the yaoi tag.

There are many words that I want to say for this story.

First of all, the protagonists go into one hell of a relationship development and it has that realistic and fictional element blended together at the same time.

The plot isn't all that gripping buy the characters and their lives in this timeline where the MC is reborn has made me grip to the novel and it made me want to how the story will go on from here.

A definite recommend.

I love it, specially that MC is not seeking revenge against the people who hurt him in the past but trying to live his life away them (don't worry, they will get karma) !!!

I love how he forgave some characters and cut all connection to other characters, how he got true friends and a family!!!

If you are tired of these novels of someone rebirth only to live for revenge, this is your story!!!

Also, all the bad guys would had a good life if they only decided to leave MC alone...... more>> sadly for them, they didn't and fot what they deserve!!!

I also love how MC try to get famous by himself and try to not depend on ML, this is a strong and realistic MC, even though his luck is not that realistic!

I love all the characters and there were some of the villains that I really liked!!! <<less

HUGE-ASS-RECOMMEND. Note, though, it's just a very well done novel of a commonly used trope. Don't expect anything amazing or fresh+new. But what it does include, is done very, very well.

So... this is perhaps one of the FEW novels that I think actually deserves it's high rating. Seriously. It's just a really good+neat BL novel.

It's really short and sweet.

I mean, for one, the small child involved (ML's son) isn't some genius 5-year-old. He's just a normal happy-go-lucky boy. Because damn, I really can't stand it when authors make the... more>> child some crazy genius. Honey, that ain't logical.

The MC, mind you, also isn't some dumb zero-IQ person. He ain't some meathead. While he doesn't go all out revenge and guns-a-blazing, he's a decently logical guy. He also isn't overly superpowered. His achievements aren't overexaggerated, either. He even loses the award the first time. There really nothing I disliked about him.

Also, the ML, too, is pretty cool. He isn't *too* over-possessive, and there isn't a moment where I go like... "damn dude... take a chill pill." Not to mention, ML ISN'T A HORNY DOG (like MLs are in most BL novels). He isn't constantly going "let's have s*x let's have s*x let's---".

There's no white lotus bitches, or green tea gals, but the drama is still good.

There's also, somewhat, an overarching villain (though he's not all that relevant - ie, Kang Jian), and not just multiple scums one after another.

It's literally just as the summary says. There are a ton of other good stuff inside too, but those particularily stood out to me.

Also... if there's one complaint, it's I wish there was more Rong Zan+Qin Xiaohai. Also, maybe an extra where it follows the past Kang Jian, and how he regrets what he did to Bai Lang, as well as maybe a little short explaining how the past Qiu Qin fell for the past Bai Lang. <<less

I have read this novel four and five times already. So you can think that this is a good novel.

And yes, this is a good novel and I like it.

The characters were reasonable and relatable. There are some dramas that make the story more exciting (don't get me wrong, drama/conflict is necessary in a story. As long as the drama not too dog-blooded, such as misunderstanding between characters that could be solved with just talking, then I still can accept it). And a cute bun too!!!...

Recommended to people who like... more>> to read a story with the above description...

The translation too... YOU DID A GOOD JOB, TANSLATOR SAN!!! With the notes and more explanations. I enyoy it so much <<less

A good melodrama that doesn't tear your heart to pieces. The angst are short and revenge mode is minimal resulting in a calm atmosphere with some ripples here and there. Over-all a slice of life genre where the MC and ML has the OP capability, but it's not the focus of the plot.

Sweet relationship and natural way of lead couple falling in love. I love the MC and how much he focuses on living a better life the second time rather than chasing revenge. The ML is very supportive of MC and there is also a very cute child involved, all in all fully recommend everyone to read at least once.

I really love this kind of sweet and healthy story. Not much dog blood drama, not much angsty, vinegar eating, or any other. I like the MC, even though he was reborn and should have make his revenge, he actually doesnt really engrossed himself on getting revenge, and instead enjoying himself more, treasuring every new encounter he makes, and of course nurturing his true love with ML. Though eventually all the characters that need to be getting revenge on are sending themselves on his door, practically asking and provoke the... more>> ML to fulfill the revenge the MC should has. <<less

This is my first time writing a review but I just had to do it.

I don't know why some of the reviews are so critical but for me, this story is one of those that you read again and again.

The MC is not overpowered or overly Mary Sue but he does have the protagonist halo. Putting this aside, his character is the type that I love - calm, has enough IQ, cute but not annoying and he also has this kind of world heaviness after his rebirth that gives his... more>> character more depth. Plus, he's not revenge thirsty but he's not a pushover either. Kind of refreshing for a rebirth story.

The ML is so-so, but his love for the MC covers up his character flaws. There's also his son who's super adorable and makes the story more light hearted.

The translation is also very good. It's not the best story as it does have some plot holes and the author can't remember mob names lmao but do give it a try. (づ ̄ ³ ̄) づ (づ ̄ ³ ̄) づ <<less

It's definitely the type that gets better as you go along! Nice balance between the acting, scheming, loving, affectionate moments~ Very enjoyable read overall. Although I was a bit unsure at first because of the overbearing attitude of the ML and kinda "blank" feeling of the MC, their true character was shown gradually. ML is indeed wild and can be overbearing but he genuinely respects the MC's wishes and cares A LOT for his well-being. As for the MC, he's not as blank as I thought, and his personality is... more>> both gentle and firm, smart and stubborn, sentimental and sensitive. The CP are capable of communication and they avoid a lot of useless drama so the story can be read pretty smoothly. They definitely get better when they become a real couple, which I found very pleasant. Also, what really impressed me was all the double-meanings, the hidden schemes and all that behind the scenes, under the table stuff which were pretty well developped and made the plot that much fuller. The extras were also very cute! Definitely deserving a 5/5 from the feeling it gave me while reading ^o^ <<less

One of the best novel I ever read. Everything is beautiful, the plot, the character and relationship development, everything just so beautiful.

This is not a 'fairy tail like' love story, the characters not falling in love in the first sight but their love is deep and grow.

I dont know what to say anymore, I laugh and cried when I read this story. So beautiful. Recommended!

Rating: A very positive 3.5 stars!

Review: If I recited the events of the story, it would sound exactly like one of your typical C-Novels with names like "Rebirth of the Film Queen: The CEO's Contract Lover: Spoiling the Young Master's Mother!" Luckily it's a MUUUCH nicer, more moderate and wholesome story, despite there being very little in there that I haven't read in one or another C-Novel Romance or BL about some guy or girl reborn in the entertainment industry.

Overall, this is very pleasant to read: not all of the... more>> villainous characters are completely black, events are sometimes dramatic but not melodramatic, the romance is satisfyingly developed, the MC has a nice balance of intelligence, kindness and strength, the ML (although he initially fits the stereotypical cold, overbearing CEO) is much more moderate and balanced with the MC than I was afraid of, there are likeable supporting characters, and everything is tied up well in the end. I also liked that was only moderate use of superfluous internet comments by fans. The story and writing had almost nothing jarring, except perhaps too long spent in detailing each step of the final villain's downfall (i.e. Too much time not on the main character).

The main reason I rated it 3.5 rather than 4 stars (I rarely rate anything 5) was merely that there was nothing about this story that raised it into something with a special spark. It was very nice to read and I enjoyed it. I could confidently recommend it to other BL readers. <<less

A nice, warm story. There's nothing to really set this one apart in its genre (I'm not writing this as a criticism). You can't help cheering for the MC during his rebirth. It's a Cinderella BL story.

Short but fulfilling. It's full of rollercoaster feels, adorable kids, and realistic story and human relationships. Also no useless drama. I just wish there's more.
