it's a well written story, the plot is definitely just a solid "ok." but it was still an entertaining book. Plot might be shallow as hell but the writing skills of the author are very good, and my personal favorite moments were the comments the netizens would leave. I think it would best be compared to those cliche but lighthearted romance novels like "the CEO's villainess childhood friend".

That said, if you're looking for depth you might as well keep going. There's no real opposition, MC's god tier talent for modeling... more>> basically trumps all whether it be enemies or gathering allies. Everything usually gets wrapped up by modeling/releasing damning blackmail, everyone is enthralled, enemies eat shit, the end. There's no character development either, everyone stays exactly the same from beginning to end. The Chinese nationalism is VERY strong in this one so be warned. To be fair though this is originally a novel intended only for Chinese readers. It gets old especially quick while binging but the author probably never expected someone to translate the whole thing into English for others to read, so honestly I say take it with a grain of salt since we (English readers) weren't the target audience anyways. If you're bothered by that sort of thing however, best to just leave; there's a lot of "Huaxia's the best" and rattle on about Huaxia's got the most power/can suppress other countries, has better models than everyone, better designers, richer culture (america's 300 vs Huaxia's 5000), etc etc.

Overall; decent book purely for the writing skill of the author, but the plot is as deep as a bowl of cereal and you're really just kind waiting for MC and ML to get together. I don't recommend binging this story either, it can get a bit repetitive so best to take it slow. <<less

Lemme tell you one thing, the moment you come across this book do not hesitate to start reading it at once! I am absolutely in love with everything in this book, the romance wasn't rushed and the characters weren't badly written. Each character stood out from the rest and you knew who was who.

At the beginning when I saw the number of chapters I thought I would get bored half way through, but decided to give it a read anyways cause it seemed interesting. And honestly I thought wrong. The... more>> book did not bore me in any way, shape or form. It was perfect from beginning to end. I am really thankful to whoever translated this book because they did so very well.

Overall, this books was extremely good one with perfect amounts of everything; a definite five star.

Let me summarize this novel in simple words: "Mushroom (MC), wow! Amazing! Huaxia superior! westerners? Disgusting hmp! Xi Ze... ?_? "

This novel is simply... outrageous and exaggerated. Everyone who met just goes, "Omg! Good body, slender waist, a god in front of the lens! No one is better than him! His aura blah blah blah..." I thought only transmigrated assassins to cultivators would have this kind of empty compliments. Every single words are ego booster. So many unnecessary details that can be simplified in one word but prolonged for 2-3... more>> paragraphs... im not even exaggerating.

It's the same old cliche novel where the MC has a halo and those who don't side with him must perish, no exceptions. Like, literally everybody is sucking up to him... no matter if its the super duper famous photographer #1, #2, #3, the three awardee film empress, the super top models and so on... He has no flaws, even his bad acting got him the best newcomer award?? Really author?

I was quite enjoying it up until he went to the west. The xenophobia literally jumped out... Huaxia like, dominates the west, so many huaxia on the supermodel ranking, so many huaxia on the western boards... the MC even said this himself.. "those ugly people", goodness... You will see the author's prejudice over the westerns...

The ML, I actually don't feel him that much in the novel. Even if the author deliberately said he's literally the most perfect thing and most talented person to ever existed. His love for MC was also without basis, no one courted, they just kissed and viola! they're together suddenly.

It was a good read up until that point... then everything went downhill. I couldn't stand every single praise for MC.

The plot is repetitive, boring, the counterattack is sooooo cliche. I was expecting new things but well....

Not worth the high ratings. <<less

This is my personal rating of this novel. I'm sure a lot of you will be shocked, once you notice some of the negative reviews. Don't worry I was as well. I was not aware that this novel received so many negative reviews until I visited its page and decided to write my own thoughts and review for this novel expecting that it's full of positive reviews.

I'll start with the few concerns that are mentioned by the other reviewers of this novel.

Now, don't get me wrong. When I read the... more>> novel, I indeed notice how the author wrote it informally. Yes, informally. The emoticon and some excessive exclamation points that are present in every chapter are indeed true. Which is to say, the above reviews are not entirely false.

But personally, upon realizing it. It didn't bother me. I don't know why actually. In my mind, I was thinking. Well, the author is doing it differently but I didn't mind. It didn't hinder me from reading the novel. I continued it and thus, I'm done reading it. I was so focused on the interactions of the CP, that for some reason, I didn't nitpick on the emoticons or excessive exclamation points that are present. I know that they shouldn't do this but it strangely clicks together. At least, that's what I thought.

Another thing, when it comes to reading translated novels whether it is Chinese, Korean, and Japanese novels, my expectation is not that high. I lowered it, to avoid disappointments. Remember we are not reading the exact output of the author so I do not want to make it hard for them, at least towards our dear translators. All I want is to enjoy the plot and in this case, the interactions of the CP. Yes, my conditions are not that high. Don't get me wrong I did read a lot of famous and formal works but I know the distinction of these novels. And I know when to start nitpicking and not.

Lastly, is the mention of the Huaxia. I know the author made this place so strong and undefeated. A hegemon that can compete on 'the most powerful country'. I really notice it but it's not like I'm not bothered. In my mind, as long as it will not go beyond my own little safe zone then, it's fine. It is indeed mentioned in a few chapters but I'm sure you can take it. Since the rest of the novel is more with the interaction and the growth of the CP.

Regarding the plot:

Spoiler

The relationship between the CP is smooth sailing. When I say, smooth sailing, I mean it literally. There are no ups and downs. No push and pull. Even the jealousy is not overbearing but still really sweet. The CP immediately realizes their partner is jealous but they confront it immediately and steamy scenes happen immediately. I can say, that the charm comes from the interaction of the CP. That is why so many readers continue to read it despite the negative reviews. Another is the rivalry, between the MC and ML, its not that strong but also, the ML didn't just give his title to his wife in a silver platter. The MC indeed works hard for it but for other readers may not see it since the MC already has his own techniques and style since he is already a renowned supermodel in his past life.

Next is, the face slapping, there are a few characters who schemed or just hate the MC for nothing, I tell you, the MC did a good job on face slapping them but also the ML will also grab a chance to help him.

[collapse]

All in all, this is all I will say. I still want to recommend it and see it for yourself. As for myself, since I deeply love the interaction of the CP, I still love the novel. I may not be the most reliable reviewer but I believe you can only see it for yourself. If you see the charm of the novel, then it's good. If not, it's okay. We all have our own cup of tea.

So, Good day to all! <<less

DNF at chapter 170. I really wanted to finish but the whole thing was getting more and more ridiculous. A good novel can have OP characters w/o being ridiculous, but maybe the author wasnt trying *shrugs*

I muddled through this story even though it got boring in spots... A LOT OF SPOTS!! 🙄

Though I usually live for the smut, the two scenes were almost not worth it since the d*mn novel dragged 200+ chapters!! 😣

The MC is pretty interesting

Spoiler

Even though he's an OP supermodel, he sucks at writing, cooking, and acting.

[collapse]

The ML is domineering like most, so don't expect too much from the stereotype.

Lots of lovey dovey once they get together. 🥰

The reactions of the fans and interaction of some of the models was hilarious.

The story does have some elements of revenge and hints of drama...

BUT THE FASHION AND DETAILS RELATED TO THE INDUSTRY IS F*ING OVERWHELMING AND WILL DRIVE YOU MAD IF YOU'RE NOT INTERESTED! 😱

And I wasn't interested after hearing about the same things over and over and over...

Do you want to read about how beautiful the MC is? It's there on every page so you won't be disappointed... unlike me 😑 <<less

The novel is like many other trending transmigration novels, using previous lifes talent and rising to the top with the occasional face slapping, the main character is good, not too nice, but unlike many other novels, not too cold and cruel, he is smart, funny, cute, and has a great charm, the male lead is also great though he tends to follow the cool male lead trend, the author liees to excessively praise huaxia and mention how poerful it is, the couple interaction is great, the MC depends on his... more>> won strenth to rise, the characters are nice the s*x is amazing, and most importantly, the translator is very amazing with no mistakes, and great translation speed. <<less

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

I loved this.

I religiously read this in every update. The story about a young boy who was used by a scum and later on died overdose with drugs. Second chance (to him or to MC?) was given and he lived with a new soul occupying his body. Now, the MC is already a professional model with amazing achievement (except he can't act, no. He can't, like, no.)

He took the boy to the right path and thrive to improve himself and along the way he met... more>> with the current male god model, ML who fall in love with him at first sight (Yes, I firmly believe that.)

Percent of likes : 90%

He helped him in the shadows, a lot.

MC didn't exactly took revenge on the ones who wrong the previous body owners. Instead, the revenge took place by itself. When his OP-ness evolved in such a magnificent and majestic aura, everyone was suddenly obsessed with him and loving him to the point where his fans cried when they saw him walking on runway.

The insignificant, suddenly untalented protagonist was just a pebble on the side road.

Percent of likes : 75%

Career, life, love and everything was a smooth ride for him. No tragedy or misfortune, or whatever.

Percent of likes : 50%

Skipped a few chapters because the climax is anti-climatic. Whats the point when he easily achieved all that. Happy ending. The end. <<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.

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

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.

I've seen many mixed reviews about this story and here are my comments:

1. First of all, disclaimer: I really like these kinds of stories where both the MC and ML are too overpowered and cause trouble for everyone

2. This is a story about a rebirth and the rise to fame, a classic in Chinese BL novels. This trope is so classic but I'm such a sucker for it. It's fluffy and straightforward.

3. Dog food everywhere. It's seriously fluffy. I've squealed plenty of times and leaves you grinning in some chapters... more>> because: too OP! 太OP了. I love them (MC and ML) so much because love is everywhere they are so cute. I am sad to be single sometimes

4. Straightforward plot. Very straightforward. You know the ending right from the beginning. Just a sprinkling of classic melodrama here and there.

Some drawbacks:

5. Barely any character development. The characters stay the same.

6. Why can't any of the villains have some redemption :" ((

7. Some people may not like this kind of straightforward stories because there isn't much depth into relationships and overtly detailed descriptions on actions taken by ML and MC.

Final comment:

Ultimately I just really enjoyed this kind of fast-food novels. Quick and satisfying (and so plentifully fluffy) It can leave you in either a good mood or a I'm sad to be single mood. <<less

I'll be completely honest here. Some books are not meant to satisfy a reader's quest for a memorable plot and this is definitely one of them. If you want an amazing story, with twists and turns and an emotional rollercoaster with action and stuff like that, then this book is not for you.

The whole reason I started reading this book is that it had too many mixed reviews. About half of the reviews were bad but the other half praised the book to no extent, even comparing it to FOD... more>> (which surprised me but I guess I understand why it is compared to FOD). So I wanted to judge it for myself and I'm glad I read it.

The plot, in general, can be summed up in one line- 'The rise of a supermodel.'

But trust me when I tell you this, even though this book's plot is lacking (a LOT) and even though the book might bore you at times, it will make you laugh like there's no tomorrow, it'll make you feel wicked and evil, it'll make you blush, it'll make you squeal in excitement, heck! It'll even make you scream. And you start seeing the growth of someone and when that 'someone' finally is in a place you want them to be in, you can't help but feel proud and happy.

Sometimes, it is more about the emotions a book makes you feel when you read it more than the story. I'm not saying that if you don't read this book, you will be missing out on life. No. You can choose not to read it and you won't miss out on anything. But it is entertaining, funny, and definitely a good read. And unlike most people, I like the second half of the book more than the first. <<less

While reading this novel I felt like maybe my attention span wasn't long enough at times...

At first the novel was good, but once MC and ML got together it was pretty much a given that everything was going to be smooth sailing so it was a bit of a struggle to complete this novel. There was a bunch of random anti-West/anti-American xenophobia in the middle and ML turned into a mafioso for a bit?? Every villain was as thin as a sheet of paper. There really wasn't much conflict in... more>> this novel.

I had to stop for a while because the plot got too ludicrous.

Additionally, MC and ML's relationship dynamic is uh... interesting? Not your traditional relationship, I suppose. I had great difficulty imagining ML to be anything other than a gangster. He's the world's #1 supermodel who never does supermodel things. ¯_ (ツ) _/¯ <<less

tl;dr: Strong MC and ML. Minimal dog blood drama but lots of dog food.

MC is very good at (most aspects of) his career... well yes. He literally lived another life where he went through the struggles of climbing to the top... it's not because he's perfect =.=

This story has its own pros and cons.

Pros

  • MC- He is quite clear in what he wants to achieve and works hard for it instead of taking easier way. His interactions with everyone around him seem smooth.
  • ML-What I like about ML is even though he has already achieved everything MC wants to achieve he always regards MC as an equal and never looks down on him. He is also quite shameless when it comes to supporting MC later on. We don't see much of him in the beginning but their interactions are always natural and don't seem forced.
  • Supermodel rankings- IDK about others but for me those rankings really brought some excitement into the plot.
Cons:

  • MC and ML- The whole novel doesn't give an indepth characterisation of them. We don't see their emotions, conflicts as both of them are pretty straightforward. While it is welcoming it would have been nicer to learn more about them and not just the superficial versions.
  • Supporting characters-There are not supporting characters that stand out and no heartfelt intercations with main characters.
  • Plot-It is there but most of it is about MC doing photoshoots, runway modelling, ads etc etc. While that is expected from a supermodel story but it would have been better if we saw more than the glitz and glamour. More struggles, more in-depth look behind the scenes.

The reason I started this book is because the author also translated FOD and it hasn't let down my expectations so far. MC is amazing at everything but acting which makes him feel more relatable. And the ML is a clean freak.

Imma spill all the tea now so listen up.

First, the bad things:

I saw people some time ago calling the protagonist OP, but the truly OP one here is the ML. Ming Yu (MC) already went through all the hardships of becoming a model in his past life, that is something we see in little depth but it's still there. So, for him to escalate sky-rocketting makes sense, since he's in already experienced and all. We do see him struggle with acting and cooking though, so even if his modeling is... more>> perfect there are other aspects of his life that are not, but he still tries his best to be better and eventually reachs his goals. He's empowered and strong, and overall a really good main character.

Now, the ML. I love Xi Ze, don't get me wrong, but it's plainly clear since the beginning that he's basically a god (they literally call him that, too) and no matter what efforts the MC puts into his career, he will ALWAYS be three steps behind him.

Spoiler

Ming Yu is not good at cooking? Xi Ze is magnificent at it. Ming Yu is not good at acting? Xi Ze has never tried it before, but somehow is awesome at it. Ming Yu's strongest point is his modelling? Xi Ze doesn't even need to model for an entire year and yet he's still the numer 1 of the entire world. Ming Yu's amazing for escalating into the Supermodel's list in only a few months? Well don't get too excited, because Xi Ze did it in way less time. The author even goes through the trouble of explaining that Xi Ze is wealthier than Ming Yu was even in his past life, where he was a top supermodel in the same category as him.

There's a limit of just how much you can justify by saying "Xi Ze was a top fashion designer, not just a model, and that's why things are like this", author.

[collapse]

It really gets tiring after a while, and in the end it makes the MC's achievements seem a little underwhelming, bc even if you were extremely excited and happy for him (I was), the author STILL loves to bring up that the ML will always be better than him.

On a side note, revenges against cannon fodders are W A Y too exaggerated. They wrong the MC even just a tiny little bit, and all hell breaks loose because the ML is so "protective" of his husband (they call him wife actually but I'm just gonna skip past that).

Spoiler

There was a guy who posted online something that slightly damaged the MC's reputation, and he ends up beaten up, cancelled by the entire world and blocked from the entertainment industry?? A girl who left the MC alone on the red carpet, and they take away her fake boobs and her career??? And let's not even mention the ultimate cannon fodder: the dude that treated the original owner of Ming Yu's body badly. He ends up being raped in prison, man. That's awful, even if he was shitty and lame.

There are mentions of vendettas that involved gang raping too and I'm just, , why.

[collapse]

They try to give us an explanation for the exaggerated revenges (even the MC finds the ML to be coming out too strongly), but tbh it's still bad. Also the ML is constantly making someone spy on the MC to know what he's doing at all times and it's kinda creepy but it isn't a big deal really.

Anyway enough with the bad, let's get on to the good stuff. The relationship between the MC and the ML is BEAUTIFUL. They gravitate naturally towards each other, nothing feels forced at all, and you can just tell how much they love and cherish each other, even if both of them are the cold, calm and collected type of character. The sexual tension between the two is on point until they finally kiss and it feels r I g h t, you know what I mean?

Besides, you don't really get bored before that happens. The romance builds up around the plot, and that's why it feels so natural, but the main thing in the story is, still, the plot and the path of Ming Yu towards the top of the supermodels' ranks starting from a third-rate magazine and escalating in huge leaps from there on. The arcs are all nice, but personally I think the best ones come when he starts acting. I legit cried with the plot of a movie he filmed, and I felt so proud of him too. I loved it.

Also can I say just how much I love that neither of them are possessive? They do get jealous, but they share a deep trust and know the other would never betray them. Besides, they're not petty at all. The ML never gets worked up over the MC choosing to rest rather than sleeping with him or whatever if he has a show, audition or shooting the next day. Neither of them gets mad when the other has to travel far away, even if they do miss each other. The MC is 100% confident in himself and his abilities, and the ML is, too.

Spoiler

AND when the ML decides that the MC is his muse and asks him to become his exclusive model, the MC rejects him for the sake of his own interests and the ML does n o t get angry or pushy about it. It's incredible.

[collapse]

Oh and the s*x scenes are awesome, well-timed and just enough. You don't get drowned in sex, but you don't face a drought either.

It's a good read, really. Especially towards the end, and there's one extra that had me crying nonstop, the angst hit me from nowhere and the happy ending felt even better after that.

I read the entire thing and I've gotta say that it is a great time if you can handle ignoring what could be seen as xenophobic behavior. Yes, there were scenes where Western media (more specifically, American media and fans) were seen as being less sophisticated in their responses or were just plain villainous. My opinion on that (as an American), is it completely wrong?

Yes, this was a little exaggerated (for the drama) and I would love to believe that our media sources and fans wouldn't act in this manner...HOWEVER,... more>> have you seen how our media is now? How the American public acts when the slightest supposed facts show up in the media?

Everyone and their mother jump on the slightest thing, ready to fling dirt at whoever the media decides to be their target. With the current political climate, if someone comes out and said you did something... does the majority sit around and wait for some proof to be shown? Is there a due process? Or does the majority just jump on the bandwagon?

All I'm saying is, it's fine to feel some type of way because a story isn't expressing the Western media in a positive light in a story that (from the beginning) is shown to mainly have an Eastern mindset.

This is something I understood, so I didn't take offense to that portrayal. Yet, I find that a lot of the people with 1-2 star reviews mainly base their reviews on those instances (of which there are only two).

Are there not American celebrities who have essentially "gone through the back door" to achieve fame or used their bodies to get to their positions? That's just some unspoken truth that happens in Hollywood, which is now being exposed (though mainly through examples of people getting harassed by directors or just people with power using said power for their own gain, etc.) because of the political movement going on.

Is it a hard pill to swallow? Yeah, but it's just used for drama in this story. I doubt the writer of this came with the intention of ridiculing Westerns.

It's just a story. Please stop getting stuck in your feelings.

Now that that is out of the way, as for my feelings about the story overall...I LOVED IT!

I literally felt like one of Ming Yu's fans and was swept away by everything in the story. _ (:з」∠) _ I enjoyed the dog food, I enjoyed the face slapping, I enjoyed watching those who wronged Ming Yu fall and those who were nice to him rise (though sadly there was never any follow up on that guy who helped Little Mushroom against Cheng Su's former junior). I loved the cute relationship between Little Mushroom and Xi Zi, and I especially love the other characters that introduced in the story (though some definitely deserved more screen time)

Were there cliches? Yeah, but I expected it.

It's become something I just assume is in these kinds of light novels.

Did the cliches make me enjoy the story any less? Nope.

I knew what I was getting into when I first saw the summary, and I have no regrets.

I heavily recommend this story to others who are fans of this genre and don't mind the MC always coming out on top no matter the odds. If you were in here hoping for an MC that has to struggle against the entire world for every scrap of acknowledgment while being trampled on like tr*sh by everyone...This ain't for you.

All-in-all, If I could, I would give it 4.5/5 stars. The story isn't perfect by any means, but it did its job and entertained me for the 2 days and 5 hours I've been reading this. But since this system doesn't allow me to put the score I want _ (:з」∠) _ 4/5 stars! <<less
