An overbearing CEO-type ML that respects his lover 👏👏👏 They feel so rare _ (:з」∠) _

Besides the equal equal relationship, you have yourself a strong (but not OP) protagonist, a novel that lays out the worldbuilding neatly, and tons of fluff/dog food/PDA near the end. Comedy is the strong suit (bantering ftw) ; the drama is fairly light (no angst), but there were a few parts that moved me to tears. The face slaps aren't much different from what you'd read in other novels.

... more>>
Spoiler

All of the antagonists—even the main antagonist—are small fries. But I liked the incident of the first major (read: so-so level threat) antagonist because his actions had a reason beyond jealousy and hatred. The second major antagonist... If you haven't read brainless death seeking before, you might find it interesting, but otherwise it's old hat.

I wasn't gonna mention the main antagonist, but then I thought that would be triply pitiful. He is just too sad. His presence is even less than the first major antagonist. He was never in the MC's eyes—except for the MC to fulfill the last wish of the person he transmigrated into. He's definitely not a good person, but as is common in the face slapping genre, there's no humanity. Of course, he has a bad ending.

[collapse]

You can understand the novel without knowing much about fashion or fashion shows, but I looked up terms sometimes and watched a few runway videos to better picture the setting. Definitely wasn't trying to look up hot supermodels cough

Overall, an enjoyable read. 10/10 would eat mushrooms again. <<less

Look, I really wanted to like this novel. I'm a sucker for transmigration premises, where you'll have a kickass MC about to conquer the world (in this case, supermodel world). It may not be the best literary work out there, but I thought there'd be enough plot and content to keep me captivated, much like QWTFD.

But forty chapters in, I can't take it anymore. I'm not sure if the translations needed proofreading, but when you have sentences using THREE exclamation marks !!!, characters whose dialogue just breaks your brain, and... more>> dialogues that run along the lines of this:

Spoiler

Shen Xiang, "?"

Xi Ze replied to the puzzled Shen Xiang. "Since you have to divide the models in accordance to level and Ming Yu's level can't be judged, then... he is at the highest level."

Shen Xiang, "(⊙口⊙)!!!"

Ding Bo drinking water, "Cough cough cough... "

Acting as if he didn't notice his agent and the director of Muse's Pr department's aghast eyes, Xi Ze raised his right index finger to his lower lip, speaking as if he was embarrassed, "Temporarily set it to the highest level."

Shen Xiang, "!!!!"

What do you mean by temporary?

It seems like you are still very dissatisfied with the highest level!

Come out, say what you aren't satisfied with! I will let you know who is at the highest level!!!

(/"≡ _ ≡)/~┴┴

[collapse]

Are you kidding me? Inserting chat emoticons into a piece of literary work? Even worse, these are littered on almost every chapter, to the point where I'm starting to suspect the author is depending on this gimmick because she lacked the talent to pull off proper prose. Nevertheless, I gritted my teeth and pushed through, because it does have an interesting premise, and I am interested in the MC's journey, but no. I have had ENOUGH of the stupid emoticons that has no place in a NOVEL, and I regret ever reading this. <<less

A very lighthearted, humorous, and fluffy/romantic novel about the MC climbing to the top of the supermodel world. Don't expect anything too deep with character development. This is a purely simple, stress-free read. The MC and ML have a good supportive relationship; no overly dramatic misunderstandings or angst. Although some parts regarding the events and descriptions get a bit repetitive (this is a pretty long story), overall the plot and progression were very logical and entertaining, especially the comedic clips of online dialogues/commentary by fans!

Be aware, the author has a... more>> strong nationalist spirit. I didn't think it was that bad since it's written from the beginning that it's an alternate universe. I'd definitely look at the other books written by this author, especially Superstar Aspirations.

Spoiler

Both MC and ML are very OP. It was nice that MC was able to 'beat' the ML in the rankings in the end instead of being forever overshadowed by the ML (which often happens in other stories). MC is also very confident/assertive and has his own personality and capabilities. Very balanced relationship with the ML.

Translator is pretty good as well. Everything flows very well! <<less

there's not much of a plot. There's no really an objective for the MC to fulfill. Its more of a story of a rebirth super model who's goal is to be a super model again but with beau (relationship) this time. The story is good though, its engaging and fun to read. This story is more of a relaxed to read novel, there's no really intense moments but has plenty of cute ones. Good to read in leisure time or if your just a really obsessed rotten woman.

I’m dropping this at chapter 23. I made a mistake to trust the reviews and not my own sense.

i didn’t want to read a shallow story about goodlooking but boring characters. There been no humor to me... not even satire, sarcasm or irony.

Besides the boring life of a supermodel... and endless shows and repeating comments such as ahh he is so goodlooking (we already got it), I couldn’t find any plot. So I leave it at that. The translations been a bit weird at the beginning but you get used... more>> to it. <<less

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 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.

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

I simply love every entertainment circle stories written by this author. All her characters are interesting, her plot always well-thought out, and the romance part always left me wanting more. She has like 5 showbiz novels, and yet every one of them have their own unique charm that makes them differ from each other.

This story is no exception. One thing I love the most about this story is how human the characters are. We have a MC who is so amazing at modelling but basically fails at anything else (acting,... more>> singing), and we have a ML who might seems so perfect and composed but actually a big dork inside (esp when it comes to MC).

And just like most the author other stories, the romance in this want is slow-build as well. But it is very well paced, and nothing feels rushed and dragged at all. In fact, imo the slow-build is one of the charm of this story.

Trust me people, this novel is worth reading. Very much so. Ugh, actually just check out all of her novels. I have yet to be disappointed in any of them. <<less

Good story and fun couple with an actual healthy, grown up, give and take 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 novel by this author 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.... more>> Lots of fluff and very mild on the angst. The side stories at the end made me tear up, which means the author was very successful in making her readers care about that mushroom couple. The nationalism and racism is not as prevalent in this story as it is in many of the others, though it is there. I've come to the conclusion that all Chinese novels set in the modern era are required to add it lest the author risk being blacklisted or something. At least it's tolerable here. Big 'thank you' to Rainbow Turtle for picking this to translate! And for the speedy releases. <<less

Every chapter literally hooks you and has you craving more. I really love the moments between the ML and MC, its so sweet and cute. GOSH!!! This novel is really great!!!

Also I dont give spoilers lol cause y'all should drown in the book yourselves... I'm already losing sleep over this>U<

For me, one of the best rebirth BL. The reasons why I love it so much are exactly why others did not like it. I loved the drama-free sweet relationship between the 2 MCs and also the author's offbeat and unique narrative style using plenty of emoticons and a very indepth look into the supermodel industry and unique fan/celebrity dynamics typical of chinese/japanese/korean entertainment industry. I also like how the author explores the great cultural divide between westerners and asians, with obvious and shameless nationalistic pride lol...i did not mind... more>> since the author is chinese, duh! it is just normal... just like american propaganda is normal in hollywood movies.

Spoiler

The 2 MCs don't act lovey-dovey all the time but I loved how they communicate their feelings via crazy antics (e.g. XiZe's crazy spending so as to become Ming's no1 fan). I love their silly and hilarious bickering, online or offline. I love how XiZe was patient and realistic enough to wait for MingYu, not only for his 18th b-day but also for MingYu's feelings to catch up to his (XiZe fell in love first where as MingYu fell in love progressively). I love how they get crazy jealous for each other for really silly things but the jealousy never devolves into nonsense drama because they are very confident in their love, realistic and self-aware, aware of how unique their love is, especially in the supermodel industry. This state-of-mind is encapsulated in that one phrase that they wrote after coming out: "In this life, it is good that I have you". Like the author says, just this simple phrase means the "promise of a lifetime".

I think this is a really fun novel, though my attention really lagged during some of the wish fulfillment modeling scenes. I enjoyed the manipulation and revenge plots much more.

As other reviewers noted, this novel is seriously nationalistic, but I have a theory about that.

... more>>
Spoiler

After reading the last extra, it almost seems like the whole story might be a dream concocted by the MC as he's lying paralyzed and cut off from the world in the hospital. There's repeated mentions of how hard he had to fight to get recognition due to his Chinese heritage (something that's probably true to reality until very recently), and so he starts imagining a perfect world.

In this perfect world, his ethnicity is no longer a draw back, he's able to fight back against other models ruining his work environment, and he's able to create for himself a harmonious relationship (which he initially thinks involves a wife and kid, but eventually evolves into the much more equal relationship of expert designer and supermodel).

So essentially, this story is just his vivid daydream, which is why things go so perfectly for him, and why he never faces any *real* obstacles.

[collapse]

Finally, some of the prideful nationalistic thoughts make sense in that the whole novel is a fantasy of the authors ideal world in light of injustices. Some of the anti-Asian/racist comments in the novel are exaggerated, but not incorrect. I've heard people making very similar comments in the US, and globally towards China in general. Of course, the author's response is also a bit racist, but I understand where it's coming from.

That said, I did find those parts a bit overdone.

I did enjoy the characters though. And something about the informal writing style and emojis work better in this translated story than in native English novels - they take a bit getting used to, but are quite cute after a while.

Overall, fun book, very satisfying in terms of successful revenges and HE. Some parts drag, but that's almost understandable in a 200+ chapter novel. <<less

Not bad! Though it made me realize that show biz really isn't my thing.

If you enjoy photoshooting scenes, this stories got a LOT of them.

If you also enjoy OP, super talented, perfect MC and ML then this is the story for you. The relationship is also very good!!!!! MC is an active partner (+100) and both are rational and treat each other fairly. (+100000)

... more>> The descriptions of MC's modeling/photos [email protected]@ Unless you look at magazines it's very hard to picture what MC looks like..

'Super handsome icy and pure' etc in the eyes of his fans... but my eyes can only see a wall of text.

Basically, the author never uses body language.

Ill drop this story just because the next 100 chapters might be as repetitive as the past 100. I only made it this far cause of MC and ML's cute interactions. <<less

This is one of the chinese BL that I like. The MC not too OP and seems more humane, the plot is nice and exciting, got some new twists to keep story interesting, however, the way MC keeps getting successful is a little bit redundant. The romance for me is just a right pace.

Next, for the translator (@rainbow turtle translations), I like your translation, however, you might need some editing for the story, there are some part I find it mistyped or weird.

Thank you
