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

It’s pretty good! But the part I love MOST is the smut part. It was actually a surprise when I saw it, cause the only label was yaoi, but it was a good one. Unfortunately, there’s only one so far, but hopefully there will be more soon.

I think this is one of the best (if not THE best) bl novels here. HEALTHY SUPPORTIVE RELATIONSHIPS FTW.

The respect the MC and ML have for each other is amazing, and they try their best to not step out of their own boundaries. The characters are so dedicated to their craft and career, and the level-headedness they possess while dealing with business is very admirable.

The MC isn't OP, it's nice to see that there is a reasonable rationale in his climb to recognition. He also isn't good at everything, and... more>> it's really endearing to see how hard he tries to be good at acting while still ending up mediocre at it, lol.

The ML isnt overbearing, he tries to respect the MCs choices while also showing him his support. He really loves the MC and tries to look out for the MCs career rather than being a possessive douche. What I love the most about him is that he does try very hard to let the MC grow by himself, no matter how he personally wants to give him the easy way up. He tries to distance himself and his brand from the MC until they were left with no choice (and even then they did it reasonably with grace)

The canon fodders (if you can call them that) are only a handful, and they do come out of reasonable consequence and motivation. They are never the main point. Even the MC's ex is almost like a footnote, the story focuses on the MC's career and his rise to success. <<less

The moment I laid my eyes on this novel, I got hooked!

Honestly, I was supposed to google translate the rest but I held myself back because the translator is awesome! The releases may not be regular but at least you'll get something in a day or two. Also, this is the first novel that I've written a review on while the translation is in progress and without me MTL-ing the rest. I did so simply because I want the world to know as early as now that the MC is... more>> sooooo adorable! I like the way how Ming Yu is so unyielding in believing that he can be a good actor when the truth is that he can never be! Lol!

Anyway, I look forward to the succeeding chapters and I'll acompany translator-san till the end. :D <<less

Only 26 chapters have been posted but I what I have read is wonderful! I smiled for 26 chapters which basically doesn't happen. The translation made me forget it wasn't originally in English.


It might just be me but when I originally read the summary I thought the story started with him already in a relationship with ML which made me hesitant to start reading due to preference. The story starts at a broken relationship and then the development of a career and new relationship.

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>>

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.


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

This was an absolutely amazing Yaoi novel. Although it took a little while for the MC and ML to finally have s*x, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The MC is so scheming, which is one thing I love about him. The ML, to me, was the perfect match to the MC. I kinda wished this was in the omegaverse so that those two could have babies. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this novel to those that like a good yaoi novel. For me, it's not too long and not too short. Also the... more>> smexy scenes were very detailed, which is something I do not see that often in chinese Yaoi, since usually, it doesn't describe the smexy scenes that well. This is at least in my TOP TEN favorite yaoi novels. <<less

One of a few books that kept me so entertained that I pulled through and finished it in one sitting. Honestly the dynamic of the couple and the fluff is too much that I related to CP fans so much. It’s goodbye that Ming Yu didn’t be rely so much on Xi Ze and actually got to where he is with his own strength and some help from vindictive Xi Ze. The vinegar in this story is too much I loved it

this was the first novel I had to stop reading because I just had no interest in continuing. I wasn't even halfway through yet. I will say that MC is smart and self-sufficient, and ML is that rare breed, an overbearing president-type who genuinely respects the MC, but that seems like damning with faint praise.

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

A really interesting, fresh rebirth-troupe novel. The main character isn’t childish, petty and stuck up (like some rebirth novels).

Personally, I found this book very enjoyable and never got bored of it through all 237 chapters. It was satisfying watching the character grow as the story progressed, and I liked how the reader wasn’t bombarded with...”making love” scenes.

Also, I found the novel humorous at times, and rather cute.

I will most read this again, if I can find the time.

Rebirth of a Supermodel, in essence, tells the story of an overpowered MC that transmigrates to a parallel universe where his goal is to climb to the peak of the fashion industry as a supermodel. Along the way, he meets ML who, of course, is already sitting at the top of this pyramid. The inevitable happens, and we readers are brought along in a rather predictable path of story conclusion.

Pros/Cons: There are clear strengths and weaknesses to this series. Predictability was its biggest flaw, character development was practically nonexistent... more>> since both MC and ML was overwhelmingly perfect almost from the get-go. If you're in search for a series rife with angst, ingenious plot lines, heavy romance with eternal conflicts and misunderstandings, pronounced character growth... likely, this is not the series for you. However, even with these major flaws, it was undeniably a pleasurable read. The author saved this series with the wonderful pacing in the development of the MC and ML's romance. As a result, their strength of character and predictability actually turned this series into a casual, low-tension, fluff piece filled with humor and adorable moments.

Added Considerations: The translation was well done. I also quite enjoyed the way the author incorporated internet slang and fan culture to the MC and ML's relationship. It added elements of fluff I have yet to see in other novels. The translator's emoticons dotting throughout the series also added hilarity.

Favorite Quotes/Snippets: As an example of how the internet/fan-culture added to the likability of the MC/ML's romance, without giving too much away, try to remember this snippet below. You might not have too much of a reaction now, but when you come across it in the series again, reevaluate how it affects you.
"At that time, there was a lovely little mushroom who wanted to become the tallest plant in the model forest. He wanted to go beyond the forest’s tallest metasequoia. He was laughed at by many small stones and shells. But this small mushroom didn’t give up and tried hard to move forward.
Once the metasequoia see this silly and cute small mushroom, his heart was moved and the two slowly came into contact with each other. They came into contact and the metasequoia said, “Small Mushroom, your body is so soft. I like it.”
The small mushroom said, “Metasequoia, you are very tall. I also like it.”
The metasequoia immediately nodded. “If you like me then become my wife. I can show you the more distant scenery. Come on, sit on my shoulder. Only you can sit on my shoulder.”

I prefer Superstar Aspirations over this. Reason: This novel doesn't have much drama or angst in it (at least till chapter 99). I'm more into heavy plots than the typical slice of life drama... that's why I can't give it a full 5/5 rating.

Nonetheless, the novel isn't bad or anything. It's cute & very funny. The ML is hilarious in an awkward way and the MC isn't weak (which I personally like to see in a MC or shou). Therefore, their relationship is healthy & unproblematic.

When it comes to the... more>> plot....I never was that excited over it cause nothing crazy was happening. I think after around chapter 100 (?) it got better (drama-wise) but it's not like the problems which appeared were solved differently than the previous ones & that difficult to erase.

But for that you got to see their relationship and also much insight on their jobs which made keep reading this novel despite having some less exciting moments.

So at first I would have rated this novel a 3.5/5 but after finishing it, it's definitely a 4/5 for me. ^^

In the end it's just a preference of mine of liking angst more, so don't let this keep you from reading it because the novel is still very good and I enjoyed a lot. <<less

This is quite a good read, but for those who don't like OP MCs and smooth sailing stories, you might not like this. Love the MCs for flirting shamelessly... the dog food was well-fed to the readers _ (;3/

I just binged this in about 3 days and I have to say, as a slight closet fujoshi who currently has a very strong attachment to their phone aka the internet, this is hands down one of my most favorite BL yet.

The main character is a strong willed black belly type character but has faults as well allowing for the character to be more human and adds little tidbits of comedy... more>>

As an example, while our beloved MC is an amazing model their handwriting apparently looks like a dog wrote it except for their signature and is terrible at acting (though he does improve over the course of the story)

He avoids falling into the more stereotypical Japanese uke/shou category where they whine a lot and are constantly rejecting the seme/gong appearing weak and honestly a little pathetic as a result (don't get me wrong I enjoy reading those stories too). At the same time the MC also doesn't get stuck in the typical black belly Chinese romance novel cutouts like the Non-BL Hidden Marriage for example (again don't get me wrong I also enjoy reading those too) in those the MC is often shown to be more omnipotent like being really pretty, good at fighting (was some sort of underground boss), also great actor, also great model, etc. I personally found that Rebirth of a Supermodel's MC to be a lot more human.

This is a little less true for the ML as he is more of the typical ML cutout character (aka super handsome, super cold, super rich, some sort of industry bigshot unattainable by the common celebrity etc.) but there are still parts that make him more human as well: the constant eating of vinegar, the cute back and forth conversations full of dog food for the single dogs aka PDA, and apperant fear of all furry creatures (?) I particularly enjoyed the extras where we get to see a little more into the MC's and ML's characters

especially the side account extra and the MC's past extra


All of the characters have little bits of charm that make them feel more human overall, I won't go over all of them so you can discover them for yourselves.

Despite all of my praise, I decide to give 4 stars instead of 5 (if I could I'd rather give a 4.9). The reason behind this was because I felt that the story had a rushed ending, perhaps it was partly due to my habit of reading into the wee hours of the morning, but I found that there were parts of the story that felt like the author has dragged out an ark and then directly skipped 5 months. The lead up made it feel like something big would happen at the end but there was no big bang, I felt like just two chapters ago a yearly contract was just renewed then all of a sudden the year had already gone by and the contract expired.

Now I might be saying this but I still think that up until the ending the story was well written, it captivated me into reading more and more, the story was interesting and new how to build up anticipation, the author almost always seemed to follow up on the events that happened prior allowing for everything to sum up nicely. (excluding the part where it seems God X decided to give up on Small Mushroom's handwriting...)

Truth be told, I'm the type who'll read the ending first to decide whether or not I'm going to read something or not (and before that I'd go over to the forums to read the spoilers and before that I'd read the reviews...) and when I read the ending, despite not knowing who all the characters were or knowing exactly what was going on, I was completely taken by the ending (it may have only been a teensy bit of my inner crossdressing fetish...) Though I admittedly didn't go to read the story properly right after that, I came back later and made sure to read every chapter for start to finish and even reread the last chapters.

If I could, I'd give a 4.9, only marking off that one tenth because the ending felt rushed, that how good I thought it was.

Of all the BL's I've read I can confidently say this one is one of the most memorable, if someone asks for a recommendation this will definitely be on the top of my list!

Oh and P.S. the first kiss seen was pretty juicy if I do say so myself and the smexy scenes weren't all fade to black (thought there were only two) !!!!!!!! (°□°) / I loved the emoticons used by the author, I'm not great at coming up with them so the one above is the best I can do, they seem to particularly favor table flipping and shrugging though...

I decided to give a 4 instead of a 5 because I wanted to show that although the story was amazing there were still some flaws, I felt there were parts where the author could've slowed down or sped up.

I find that not a lot of people mention this but the translation quality was great, only a few typos here and there (Translators thank you for all of your hard work~). <<less
