Decided to read some BL before the end of my LN phase, and this is definitely a new favorite. I love this novel so much. I think it's the perfect story, tbh.

MC is perfect. He's the uke but he's strong. He's OP at what he does, clever, confident, black bellied yet approachable. Literally he's clawed his way up to be the very best in his previous life, and his previous life is quite tragic, though to no one's fault. But luckily, the MC was able to bring his talent and... more>> personality, combine it with the OP body, and become totally dominant. The ML is adorable as well. He's as usual domineering, possessive, etc., but he doesn't push the MC up to the top. He controls himself pretty well, only supporting the MC (quite lavishly) from the back, and just acting as his biggest brain-dead fan in general.

Often the story was really amusing. The glaring weaknesses of the MC (acting and cooking and handwriting) are in no way smoothed over, which quite dramatically sets the MC up in a more human manner by saying you see this perfect supermodel has these total failures. I've also found myself a big fan of these modern novels, if only for the absolutely hilarious Weibo or Weibo-esque fan comments. I live for these comments. I think I've seen them probably in the MWFRL universe stories, GoM or GoC stories, and then here, and possibly in other ones. They're just hilarious and so relatable. Plus all the kaomoji really add impact to the comments. Sometimes I wish our celebrities were that dog food-like or hilarious on Weibo. Or possibly they are. These are the times I regret not brushing up on my Chinese enough.

The romance is still one of my favorite parts though. The MCxML might not be one of those cavity-inducing couples that say I love you all over the place, but they fall for each other and don't hesitate to make that known to each other. I don't deny that they're really perverted (some of the best s*x scenes ever, and I'm the type to look for those) and absolutely a black bellied bickering couple, but especially later in the story I definitely started crying multiple times from their indirect proclamations of love. Plus in the extras when the ML sees and accompanies the MC's previous life, which I thought was quite new, I also became quite emotional. Oh yeah, many thanks to those who suggested reading on ck101, or else I might have missed the extras. I skipped the LCxST (?) ones, just bc I was too invested in the main couple to care about them, though I'm sure they're really good.

Sigh. Frickin love this story. It's definitely risen to one of my top 5 light novels ever. We'll see if the other one is as good. <<less

Definitely one of the best novels I’ve read!! Comparable to Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil but the MC isn’t as omnipotent. Everything is realistically structured, taking account the main idea, plot and growth overall!

... more>>
Spoiler

First, the MC. On the runway, in front of the camera for a photo shoot, he is The King, yes the caps are necessarily. In his field even the ML could only be an equal. This is one of the best parts about this novel, you don’t have an ML that completely overshadowed the MC. But, what is best about the MC is that he’s realistic and down-to-Earth, he is peerless as a model but get him to act? He sucked, where most actors have 5 NGs at most in one movie, he can get 20 NG in one scene. He can’t cook well, even tomato fried is hard for him, he recipe he posted for his fans on it was extremely detailed and the results weren’t that good. He even said it was difficult. His handwriting is bad too, his talents lie in modeling, he has a high EQ but he doesn’t have many talents. But he grows, he doesn’t stay a bad actor, he slowly improves so that while he will never be a good actor, he can, at least, act at a decent level enough for blockbuster films and such. His writing doesn’t improve though, and he relies on the ML fo home cooked food... Anyway, he is the type of MC who could stand on his own two feet just with his own talents and capabilities, the ML just sped it along and gave him a goal.

Now, the ML. First impressions are the typical cold, domineering and black bellied ML but he is more an artiste and craftsmen then a cold-hearted CEO. He has major sway over the industry, which is common, but he doesn’t interfere with the MC’s work. He supports him, doing things like buying a 1000 copies of magazines the MC featured on, and gives him little pushes, like making sure the company allocates suitable resource to him. He doesn’t open any back doors for the MC, anything the MC does, every cover shoot and movie, is of the MC’s own merit. The most he does in interfering with the MC’s work is helping him deal with people who aim to ruin his reputation, but in the entire series that only adds up to a handful of people. He isn’t overly vicious, true he ruins heir careers but generally what he does is legal and not particularly violent, in other words no torture or murder. There is a reason for why, which I won’t spoil, and it’s not cliche. Initially, the ML viewed the MC as his muse, his source of inspiration as a designer, and endeavoured to make the MC his personal model or “muse”, eventually their feelings grew and the naturally came together. He tends to eat vinegar though, and that translates to cooking foods with a lot of vinegar for the MC to let him know it. Although it’s not one sided, the MC gets jealous too lol.

The MC and ML don’t dance around their feelings and misunderstandings between them are minor and few in between, not really noticeable. They have a mutual understanding and trust between them, especially once they entered their relationship, and there aren’t any characters trying to get between them because they were in love with the ML or even the MC. Usually they are jealous of one or the other but never being in love with the person, which is logical if you think about the author’s interpretation of the fashion industry. Their relationship progression is steady and you don’t have to wait 200 chapters to see them get together, I think they’re already together by half way?

I should mention though there are characters who exemplify racism, but in the novel things such as gender equality and anti-racism is promoted and tranvestites, homos*xuality and such is widely accepted with only a small minority of discriminative individuals in the population of the novel. One of the top female supermodels, I believe, was actually a former top male supermodel and gay marriage was legalise in most countries in the novel and Huaxia not before the MC and ML married. In addition the MC has worn dresses in official fashion shows, as well as a skirt that was designed by the ML and a wedding dress in one of the ML’s fashion shows, he’s also been photographed with long hair and mistaken as a girl several times.

Smut scenes aren’t prominent and initially not graphic, maybe R-15 mid way? Either way they’re easy to ignore if you don’t like that kind of thing, [

Plot development is realistic yet conforms to the MC’s abilities, also the end isn’t rushed, the MC will steadily make his way up from 3rd rate model to 2nd to 1st to a Supermodel to the top 50, 20, 5, etc... The end is very satisfying and the journey is just as incredible.

5/5, maybe even more since I read the MTL version. <<less

I'm a sucker for well done BL where the uke isn't a snivelling, cowardly mess who acts like a very feminine chick and exists to weep and take in the stick. Nothing against feminine girls, my best friend is one. Anyway, the protagonist Ming Yu is an intelligent and good looking man who knows what he wants and won't stop till he gets it. The male lead Xize (forcefully suppresses my inner fangirling) is a wolf wearing fox clothing, not sheep, cause everyone knows he's no herbivore.

The story is set... more>> in an alternate dimension, not unlike ours. Original Ming Yu has killed himself over love and been taken over by an expert from our world. This expert now goes on to climb the ranks of the model and entertainment industry by charming everyone with his skills and looks. Ming Yu does all of it while remaining fabulous and attracting the bachelors too (wink wink). The translation is on point and the release schedule/ rate of release is super fast. This translator is a hard worker and deserves all the love us fujoshis can give her/him. REJOICE FUJOSHIS FOR ANOTHER 5 STAR BL NOVEL WITH FAST RELEASE RATES! <<less

Oh I love this story!

I have MTL it twice, from start to end, and still enjoy the translation cause yes it is that good!

(implicit/minor story spoiler)

MC's personality and status

... more>>
Spoiler

MC's pretty similar to FOD's MC, in case you didn't read FOD -> MC transmigrated into a person in bad position, but unlike most transmigated MC, he got skill and knows it!

Which means he didn't feel the need to immediately show off/take revenge/does common face slapping.

MC is calm and smart, tends to be lenient but when someone ticks him, his retaliation is very cool/high class xD

MC's skill comes from his single minded dedication in his previous life, and it shows in which while MC is 100/100 in modelling area, he tend to suck at area other than that. He can't cook and his acting teacher throws the towel and ask him to just act less x'D.

[collapse]

ML's personality and status

Spoiler

ML is the best model in the whole world and also a major shareholder+famous designer in the best fashion company in china (Muse, the one MC work for).

Now what I really love, is that ML did work hard for his position instead of just being there cause author made him so.

That and the realistic fact that ML keep his "best model" title despite being busy is by "cheating" a.k.a designing his own clothes for fashion show and then model it.

Thus unlike most model that's busy with modelling, he just need to model 1-2 in a year and get [perfect/perfect] cause it's his design, so ofc he knows the best how to make it shine xD!

ML himself is a great character xD! (In fact I love him more then MC huehuehue)

ML is rather cold towards stranger and people he felt unworthy (which make sense since countless of people want to use him/his status for their own benefit).

He loves verbal trapping/trolling people he's friendly-ish with.

And if he dislike/hates someone, he is capable and ruthless enough to destroy that person.

[collapse]

MC and ML : how they start

Spoiler

So ML, as a designer, always wanted a muse (an existance that serves as inspiration source)

After meeting MC and watching him catwalking, he is 99% sure MC is his muse.

ML then directly tell MC so, and ask MC to become his exclusive model.

Now here's what I love about MC; MC refuse that offer, even though he knew it is the quickest way to become high tier popular model.

Why? because his goal is to surpass ML, and he can't do that if he works for ML. (10/10 I love your confidence MC ♡)

ML didn't force the issue, but he began to insert himself little-by-little to MC's life because to him, 'a muse is an existance that stands in the pinacle of beauty, if he didn't chase that, then what will he chase?'

[collapse]

MC and ML : work etique

Spoiler

ML make opportunities for MC because he believe inMC's strength, but whether MC succeed or not, depends entirely on MC himself.

MC is smart and humble enough to not reject ML's help, but never abuse it either.

[collapse]

MC and ML : relationship progress

Spoiler

It's refreshingly straightforward ^^♡

ML pursues MC, MC knows and play along with it until just for a while to make some things certain, then they date :p

#no misunderstanding, miscommunication, 3rd person interfering, etc etc #god bless the author

[collapse]

MC and ML : relationship dynamic

Spoiler

Mature adults in healty relationship ^^

On top of mutual love, they respect each other's decision and didn't keep secrets.

[collapse]

MC and ML : continue from above but is explicit story spoiler

Spoiler

... well except for one

ML start a (secret) hobby of mass buying product/item that feature MC, then he bought a house to be used as a garage just because he ran out of place to store them.

ML then make a new social media account, "Z God" and flaunt those items.

When MC found out, he make a new account named "halting my wife's leg" just to make snide comments to "Z God", lol those two!

After ML found out, MC (semi jokingly) said that all ML's purchase beyond certain digit need to get his approval xD

[collapse]

Antagonist : in general

Spoiler

Sadly, even in our world, the strong using/trampling the weak is very common. That is what happen to most of this story's antagonist.

Most of the antagonists are either misinformed/ill-informed about MC's real status in showbiz world, they think MC is lower than them thus they use the MC as a stepping stone/scapegoat/etc. They don't deliberately target MC because he is Ming Yu, if MC is exchanged with other "similarly status-ed"model, they'll do the same thing too.

I can't say they're good nor smart (since good and/or smart people won't want to/dare antagonise MC :p), but they're not cardboard 2D completely brain-dead antagonists who are oddly fixated/created just to make MC suffer (like god knows how many novel spawn them like cockroach).

[collapse]

Antagonist : First antagonist and his history with the real Ming Yu and MC (explicit spoiler)

Spoiler

Immediately after you start reading, you'll know the name Cheng Su.

Cheng Su was a small model who deliberately get close to the real Ming Yu in order to take real!Ming Yu's resources.

Now the catch is, Cheng Su is straight and homophobic, while real!Ming Yu is gay.

Because of that, Cheng Su felt disgusted by real!Ming Yu's advance so after he got enough foothold in the industry, he ditch the real!Ming Yu and trade his broker for a better broker.

Real!Ming Yu is too naive/stupid, he falls too deep for Cheng Su and even though Cheng Su show his true color and coldly/harshly treated him, he continue his pursue futilely.

In the end the real!Ming Yu can't take it, and commit suicide in order for Cheng Su to forever remember him.

Enter MC who honor real!Ming Yu's wish. But he did it in "the best revenge is massive success" way. He is determined to make Cheng Su regret his action by being better off than him.

[collapse]

Antagonist : Seriously major spoiler that give away the last chapters.

Spoiler

Cheng Su is the first, the most heartless and the last antagonist.

His most heartless action is when he got very fed-up with real!Ming Yu's advances, he lied and gave drugs to real!Ming Yu to set him up to be discovered and taken to jail.

Luckily (?), real!Ming Yu is so dead set on pursuing Cheng Su, he only use the drug once to try and "tempt" Cheng Su, and then stashed it away when it doesn't work.

In the end, the drug that real!Ming Yu stashed is "returned" to Cheng Su's place, police find it there and Cheng Su got interrogated. The lawyer he got arranged had no interested to protect him, purposefully lead him into saying his wrongdoing and then making sure he paid it in full.

Cheng Su got thrown into jail for years, his career un-salvageable, and we know what happen to pretty/good looking man in jail.

He came out of jail looking awful completed with androphobia.

[collapse]

Tl;dr great story-line, great characters and characterisation. Each one; main, supporting, minor and even antagonist have individual personality.

Transmigration isn't exactly new, but this story is capable to make you want to know what's next? What's next?! To top it all, this story is fast paced without feeling rushed. #satisfaction guaranteed

5/5 "a good book, no matter how many times you read it, is good"

I'M PROUD TO SAY THAT THIS IS THE FIRST NOVEL I MTL'ED UNTIL THE END!

This might be the one of the best danmei novels out there. The characters, the plots, the developments, the ending; TIP. TOP.

Both Ming Yu and Xi Ze have very solid characters.

Ming Yu is a very responsible model, thriving to become the top supermodel in the new world. You might think he is the common OP MC like in other novels; but nope, people. Ming Yu only excel in modelling.

... more>>
Spoiler

He can barely act. He can barely cook. And aside from his signature that he already perfected in his previous life (even better than Xi Ze's), his writing is near horrible.

He needs to work hard in acting because he's actually interested in it, you know. He takes classes and improving his acting little by little, first by acting in an ads, then later in a movie. You can see his gradual improvements in time.

[collapse]

Xi Ze, IMHO, is a typical OP ML. What can't he do? He excels in modelling, designing, and even cooking (He can even carve flowers on carrots!). His downside might be that's he's very sarcastic and annoying towards people close to him, including Ming Yu. But at least it shows a flaw in his character. I also love the fact that Xi Ze respects Ming Yu's request to not become his muse (yet). Xi Ze is continuously trying to tempt him through out the novel but he is persistent without being pushy.

We of course have other characters but TBH, the MCs overshadow everyone else.

The plot revolves around the modelling industry, which I am quite surprised with how detail it is. I never knew models take still pictures before they walk the runway (but I never care about models or modelling so...). At least we know the writer did some research.

In the novel, you can see Ming Yu rises from third rated model to become the top male supermodel. The development from modelling for small magazine to high-end brand are described in details. You can follow Ming Yu from his preparations in the make up room to his professionalism in front of the cameras, later to the advertisements of the brands and the critics and compliments from the pros and fans. You can understand the reason why he succeed what he did because the author did a good job building the story.

The ending is in line with Ming Yu's goal; to become the top supermodel. Yay!

As for Ming Yu and Xi Ze's relationship, you can actually see its development. It starts from a 'designer and refused-to-be-muse muse' to 'friends' to 'lovers'. It's not abrupt but the transition is not too subtle either. I like this couple

I recommend this novel to anyone to read, even the MTL is quite easy to understand. It only takes a few early chapters to get hold on their names, after that you can breeze through. <<less

I like the new chapters so far and there's already a lot of mysterious characters waiting to lay all their cards! And the MC is not a weak character to be trampled on! I'm looking forward to that sweet revenge he will served on those black bellies, as well as him meeting the ML!

I will add this to my reading list! <<less

I don't know how I feel about this novel, to be honest. The plot seems good and I don't dislike the characters but, the way the author writes makes the story kind of... hammy? It's just...I feel like the author says one thing but the story and characters say another. Or the story will have tons of random unnecessary details purely for the sake of an ego boost. It's disconcerting enough to make reading a chore, even though I feel like this should genuinely be a good story.

First off, the... more>> interactions between characters seem really fake and contrived. The author specifically describes the MC as not being flattering or servile yet, for the next 2-3 paragraphs, every other sentence out of his mouth is a compliment to someone. I'm not asking him to be aloof or act like he's better than anyone, but come on. At the very least, the author should at least try to make her MC match her description of him. Or let's talk about the fact that the ML is
Spoiler

not only the #1 supermodel in the world, he's also concurrently the creator and chief designer for the #1 brand in the world. Seriously? He's so amazing he can design for 4 shows a year, never model or show his face, and yet still not be forgotten as the #1 model on a list that updates every 3 months? This author relies too much on suspension of disbelief.

[collapse]

Going back even further, even the most basic detail like the setting is an unnecessary ego wank. His country Huaxia (China) is the leader for fashion. Cool, right? Yet, somehow, the country is also the leader of politics, technology, sports, yada yada yada. And it's just like... seriously? Is all that really necessary? Outside of the fashion bit, none of those details serve any importance to the story and only make me pause and wonder why the country of super humans hasn't just taken over the world by now. But that was a super minor one, more funny than off putting.

Frankly, none of these details is anything major- they're all just ego boosts for her characters and country and whatever, but it's just so exaggerated, especially because she tells and doesn't show (or will show the exact opposite of what she tells). At best, I just roll my eyes a few times whenever the author says how awesome something/someone is or when MC acts like some old sage evaluating everyone left and right. What makes this novel so uncomfortable to read is the conversations. THEY'RE SO AWKWARD! Honestly, you'd think you were reading an interaction between robots trying to learn human society and not two humans! At times, the stiffness comes across in the narration as well so I'm sure it's not (solely) a translation issue. I should like this story- it has so many things that appeal to me and is similar to novels I also enjoy (True Star, etc) but the author is making it hard for me to genuinely enjoy reading it. <<less

Spoiler

Bear with me here, this is the first review I have ever done on this site.

Now let me tell you what I love about this story. Even though it is the mainstream story of transmigration but unlike any other story where the MC is stupidly OP and full of drama, the MC for this novel is not OP (although the MC really are the number 1 Supermodel in terms of shooting and catwalks) and actually really bad at some things. Ex. Acting. He is so bad at acting that even his fans, agent, and the ML like to poke fun at him for it. But in times he is getting better after much dedication that everyone has to applause him for his hard work. The novel is very well paced, and of course, my favorite part of this story is the love story between the MC and the ML. Not much drama that leads up to the MC and the ML to be together, but it is solid, and you can definitely tell how sincere their love is (mind you, I even cried at the love letter the MC wrote to the ML). Even the ending is not rushed and it lives up to your expectation that you can't help having the sense of fulfillment after reading it.

Really people, stop killing reader counts when the novel translation has just begun!!! You are making people miss out on great novels! Temporarily rating this 5 stars to make up for the 1-star rating made by some prejudiced person.

Ming Yu is not the usual timid, need-to-be-protected shou. He's calm, cool, and determined. He's also not an MC who randomly picks fights. He's amiable and sweet-talks people into having a favorable impression of him.

The novel is off to a great start, and the translation quality is pretty good too. Don't judge it by the ratings just yet! <<less

Loving the storyline. The flow is just right. The MC is handsome, sweet, cool, calm, fun and hillarious. The ML erm... is a godlike character. I like when Ming Yu communicate with others especially with Xi Ze. He always gave fluffy adorable mushroom feeling.

The translation until chapter 83 are very good and enjoyable to read. You won't regret reading this novel.

The story seems interesting so far. The MC is calm and wise because he was reborn again in someone else's body, which I like. I'm a fan of stories set in the intertainment industry, so I'm excited to see where this one will go!

The mtl is pretty good, some mistakes here and there, but it's very easy to read and none of the mistakes are too jarring. If you're a fan of BL, I would recommend you give this a read.

Probably one of my top 5 BL novels. I like how the MC is still OP but there are still some areas that he still lacks and so there is still room for improvement. He is smart, witty, confident and everything I want in an MC. LOL

The ML is quite nice too. He's sufficiently overbearing and doting without suffocating the MC. He trusts his opinions and lets him fly freely but is always there to catch him if he ever stumbles.

The cannon fodders are what they say they are. Nothing... more>> but cannon fodders. So far I havent seen nor foreseen a character that has yet to shake the MC's momentum.

So all in all, it has a rather light plot and it can be a bit predictable, but it's not really a con for me. What I enjoy the most is the MC and ML's interactions and how the MC wipes the floor for every project he has. Lol.

The translation is also good enough. The only thing is that I wish the translation releases every day. Lol. I dont have patience for MTL and it ruins the novelty for me. There is probably nothing more unappealing to me than a badly translated novel. <<less

I really, really, really like this novel. Especially the interactions between the characters. Love, love it~~~ and also, how the MC have blaring weakness and he was not hiding it, instead he tried to improve himself. How he treat people around him and how he slyly tricks the one he didn't like. How the characters progress and most importantly the black-belly ML. Although, the ML is tooo OP, giving lots and lots of leeway to MC, but still, I like how their relationship progress and how they don't even confess... more>> to each other because "we know how the other feels."

OMG!

I like the story so far; the main character doesn't pull tricks out of an invisible hat but mainly keeps his cool.

This story really reminds me of Skip Beat!; except the main character of RS is male and it focuses more on a model-word instead of an acting-world.

Well grounded characters and good pacing combined with good dialogue makes this a fun and enjoyable read.

It's not frustrating at all because the characters are sincere. Smooth transitions. Definitely recommended.

The only thing annoying is the strong nationalism woven in. It's the same kind of annoyance I get when authors go on and on about a character's appearance. It's just too ham fisted; a little more subtleness would have been better.

Possibly one of the best BL modern transmigration stories I've read.

The MC is really lovable, and I'm not saying that because he's the MC. He's actually quite different from other BL leads, because he's not some vengeful face-slapper, nor is he a docile, dense character. He's quite the black-belly character himself, but he's also lowkey about it. As long as you don't intentionally mess with him, he won't mess with you. He does remember good deeds and helps out people who treat him fairly. And while he is OP when... more>> it comes to his profession, readers will soon realize that there's a reason for his OPness... Modeling is the only thing he's good at, haha. The gap moe is so cute!

I also like the ML, but he's somewhat the typical ML you see in BLs. Mysterious, black-belly, and totally awesome. As I'm reading more about him and his interactions with the MC, I find that I like him a lot as well. The bantering and teasing between the MC and ML is so hilarious that I've found myself grinning like an idiot in public. The romance between them is also the slow-burn type, which is my absolute favorite. No instant-love here, guys!

The research in this story is pretty good. We get a lot of details about how the modeling industry works (well, at least how it is in Huaxia) and how the MC moves his way up the modeling ladder. The descriptions about the fashion shows and clothing styles are fun to read about too.

The thing that probably sets this apart from other transmigration novels is that there isn't a lot of face-slapping so far, which is really relieving because face-slapping gets tiring after a while. Instead, this novel is more about the MC's path to become the top model, all while deftly handling those who try to get in his way.

The translation is also really good, and the translator even updates very frequently! I honestly look forward to reading this story all the time because of the smile it brings to my face. <<less

Good story and fun couple with an actual healthy, grown up relationship. ML here might not be as funny as God Qin from SA but he's got his own endearing quirks. The MC is OP when it comes to modeling, but he's very human when it comes to everything else; like acting or cooking.

This is my second Mo Chen Huan novel and it shares some similarities (same alterverse, some of the same side characters) as superstar aspirations. If you liked SA than you will probably like RS; this story just... more>> has less good acting in it.

Big 'thank you' to Rainbow Turtle for picking this to translate! And for the speedy releases. <<less

This story was sooo good! I love the characters, especially my small mushroom (argh! *Dies). Love how savage and clever the uke was, not your typical damsel-in-distress type. Not that I don't like them it's good to have a breather from those types sometimes. And big thanks to the translators! Consistent and fast updates are well appreciated *bows

the story was good and all but I am not into Yaoi lool, basically not my cup of tea and I noticed it only after reaching 16 chapters when I double checked novel updates for the tags XD. Initially I was wondering why they always talking about romance between men, I just assumed that author was open minded and had introudced such characters to reflect on real life models, maybe? Anywayz
