Overall, a good enough read to occupy time.

MC himself has a step by step process in his ascension to his goal and mostly realistic in it. As a character, he possesses the qualities of someone who's thoroughly mixed in the industry and remains driven to his goal throughout the story. ML himself is a pretty okay. He doesn't take liberties with MC and respects MC's wishes. That's always a plus when it comes to MLs. He also is very driven in his desire to obtain MC, but manages to keep... more>> a good boundary and when MC said no at him the first time, he actually went out of his way and went through the friend route. The two's chemistry before they got together was subtle but managed to be also palpable. When they did get together, they're very much a power couple and supports each other in their work and are not stingy in showing each other their affection. The story itself has a good premise and though there's not much action, the writing is still enough to draw you in.

So then, why didn't I rate it higher? Answer: the blatant xenophobia. It's one arc, their depiction of foreign media has left a bitter taste in my mouth. It's so... childish. I know that it's done so that there would be a contrast to show how great and wonderful our MC and his back-up is, but the way it was depicted was just barf. Especially the part where they were having an internet war? Good and clever citizens of the country vs. dumb and shallow people of the west is how it was depicted. Why even put so much comments in it and not just describe it? Just bad taste, really. <<less

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.

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>>

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.


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

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.


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.

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.

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

This is my first review on this website, so if it's not good—well, that's something you will have to work on yourself.


Personally, I've read this story twice, and it never gets old. I think the translation could use some work in terms of grammar and punctuation (putting the correct commas, hyphens, dashes, or pauses in each sentence.) Anyway, I gave it a four because I'm biased, and I don't understand why some reviews I quote: "Boring as F*ck!" Can be credible. That doesn't tell me anything about how good or... more>> bad the story was—it tells me how little a person didn't care for the story. When you write a review, the first thing I want readers to know is my constructive criticism. Sure, you can be biased, but being constructive gives the reader an honest review about a story.

This story has many cliches, that's not necessarily a good or bad thing—I happen to like cliches, especially if they're written properly and with some substance. This story has substance, and even though it can be repetitive—it's fun to read and enjoy while simply relaxing through a nice night on your bed. It's fluffy, funny, and glamorous. The MC overcomes every obstacle in his way as if it was a piece of cake. But thanks to the author (who made the MC a transmigrator/Supermodel at the beginning of the story) —the story has logic, which in turn gives Ming Yu (MC) an advantage when he faces hardships, obstacles, and antagonists throughout every situation. The same applies to the ML, who is even more overpowered and has that hero-ish kind of halo on his head (it sparkles!)

I get it—I didn't write details per se about the story, but if you really want to delve in this story and have a good time, go ahead and read it. It's good, and you won't regret it. <<less

Ming Yu, a super model dies of illness and transmigrates into a body of a younger model in a slightly other earth setting. This boy suicided cause of missguided love. Now this Ming Yu doesnt have the same love interest but he will make sure to fullfill the original body owners last wish to "never let them forgett his name". So Ming Yu starts his way up to be the top super model.


The first 80-100 Chapters were realy good. I would give 4 to 5 Stars. Unfortunatelly from there on... more>> its getting worse and worse. In the End I would give 1 Star so I evened it out on 3.

Ming Yu's way of dealing with his first adversary was nice... but soon you will find that the next and the next and the next will essentially be the whole same. There ist nothing new. It's like copy and paste.

At some point the "slice of life" aspect gets entierely lost. The story starts to almost only revolve about the fan and forum stories. The writer loses themself in all kinds of explanaitions why and how great Ming Yu is and how much his fans love. There were some key phrases, you knew you can safely skip the next half page without missing anything.

Especially strange was for me that at one point I started to wonder "what ist this brainwash mentality"?

Might be only my perception but it felt like evry 2-3 chapters there was an explanation how great Huxia is. How especially prosperus the economy is. How much the Huxia people help each other and support their people. Huxia fans fighting united against the evil westener press. Lots of times there were phrases like "the westeners cant understand" this, "westeners do not understand" that.. etc.

That especially made the last 150 chapters like pulling teeth.

I would recomend the first 80-100 chapters but then just stop the rest. It's OK but I would not recomend the whole piece and wouldnt read it again. <<less

I don’t know who lied but this was shit. I won’t lie, it was an interesting plot and the main two characters do you have a cute relationship however on a scale of 1 to... might as well skip from chapter 1 to chapter end and you still have the same thing going on... that’s how bad it was.

First of all it contains unnecessary extra information about everything especially at random parts. Information was also repeated a lot for example it’d be like “ ‘X’ had to stretch because he... more>> was short” and then repeat this like every chapter like we hadn’t already read it. Or “‘X’ was a super model, ‘X’ arrived late because ‘X’ was a super model, ‘X’ had ten cars because ‘X’ was a super model.”

And a lot of times do you have to just accept things or use your own imagination. Considering how many chapters it had and how much extra information the author was able to include I don’t think this reasonable.

I don’t know if the author themselves laid this out horribly or if it was the translator but it was not laid out right either. You definitely had to read things twice over and like remind yourselves what’s happened.

I just feel like I was reading something else to what everyone else in the comments were reading. If you are reading this for a second time you clearly have not a read a good BL novel.

If you have time and patience then sure go-ahead and read it. <<less

First 60 chapters:
It was really tedious to read through many boring chapters without ML, so I skipped them. those 2 love birds barely had scenes together, still... I could feel the budding chemistry between ML and MC whenever they were together, so I'm still hanging on.

After chapter 80
Well things started to get more interesting...

First of all, I recommend almost always that if you're interested in a novel, read at least the first 10 chapters, despite the reviews, and if it isn't your cup of tea, then that's all, don't miss out just because a few people are too opiniated

Let's get to it

I mean... It's not perfect, but no novel is

... more>>

If the ending was handled better, I would rate this 4stars, but it just felt stale


It's not realistic, like the 99.9% of the other novels out there, so what's the big deal with that. Not realistic, so what?

Vague spoilers throughout, read at your discretion

• I wouldn't go as far as to call it xenophobia, but there is a lot of exagarated things just for the sake of... having a villain, I think? But when I really think about it, it could have been a lot worse.. After all the blatant racism and demonization from american ppl towards china, I think they should get to call them "s*upid" for a bit

• This novel is OBSESSED with beauty, just.. beauty beauty beauty beauty nonstop, it just caught my attention

• What I don't like is how the author doesn't really seem to have a plot going on? It's like they had a vague idea of what they wanted the novel to be, but never bothered to actually think it through, so it doesn't have much depth, even for this genre.

• The author emphasizes as much as they can, through the eyes of side characters, just how incredibly amazing the MC is, in almost every way possible (about modelling). The only characters that don't think the MC is astounding are the antagonists, tho I find that super common in this genre, so I didn't think too much about it, but apparently to some people that's unbeareable so? Idk, that's up to you

• It's gets really repetitive towards the end, and the characters themselves don't have many dialogues, if any at all... It's like the author just really wanted it to be over with, and filled it with descriptions

• Also, and this is what most irks me, I don't like how the author handles the "faceslapping" if it could be called that... Theres no faceslapping, just straight up mafia-like revenge. But that's not what bothers me, I love moral ambiguity, and the author from the very first moment states that neither MC nor ML are saints and they Will get revenge if they are messed with. What bothers me is that how anticlimatic everything is. The ending of the main antagonist was just like... A little builtup, and then, Bam, done. just like that. In like, three sentences. You don't even get to see the antagonist reaction, I was like... What? That's all? And the very ending itself left much to be desired, at least for me... Just the feeling that "this should not be it, things barely got wrapped up"

That's just about it, without spoiling things Too Much

Did I enjoy it? Some things, yes, very. Some things, meh. It got really boring at parts, and I wanted to just skip chapters, but mostly that didn't happen

Would I read it again? No, I don't think so

By all means, it's not a masterpiece, and it doesn't try or prentends to be. It's a light read, not much feelings involved, so if you want a break of more "heavy" stuff, by all means go ahead and read it, just.. not with high expectations lmao

I think people are way too critical of this novel, and it doesn't deserve that much bashing. It's not a ~serious read~ and, again, it doesn't try to be. So take it easy, it's just a novel <<less

Idk where to begin about this novel

Granted, it is a fictional novel set in a fictional country so not much realism is expected, but the whole journey is pretty much like that kind of shounen transmigration novel with plenty of faceslapping and unparalleled OP character--- but make it gay.

This novel is plenty unrealistic, as you can read on a lot of reviews above. But then again, the matter of it realisticity (or lack thereof) can just be tallied as the author's whim and laziness, this one though, irks me so... more>> much by over the top cringiness:

THE FACESLAPPING. As an avid reader of webnovels and danmei I truly love me some good faceslapping, it's great, it's gratifying. But this novel pretty much took it and made the good ol' revenge on the wicked thing too far until it becomes a pile of mushy, icky, uncomfortable, tr*shy mess.

A good faceslapping is metodhical, we get to see the character's peril under the pressure of slander or whatnot before the sweet sweet revenge to make it even more satisfying. But in RS it just so happen for the sake of.... happening. It's like the author got a google note tickboxes with the cannon fodder's name and sort of "A'ight, he's next, ok done. Next one."

And I cant believe I'm saying this but the method is sort of


Exaggerated and at times quite violent. There's this one guy that got beaten up badly by ML's lackeys to threaten him into taking a pic, while he's legit lying on a hospital bed with a broken leg and literally not one (1) being in the whole hospital heard him screaming or paid him any regard at all because?? bribery I guess? idk the author thought about this less than I do apparently.

And no kidding, this guy got the karma from getting the MC an actual minor gashes and minor slandering that couldve been solved with a little bit of clarification or whatev. The author stressed a lot about how MC could've actually died. Like as if, but it just fell flat and serves as ML's fuel to go full mafia mode on the cannon fodder.

There is no actual tension in reading this novel, because we know that the all powerful ML and MC will solve it by the next chapter, much much worse than what the villain actually deserves


Well that's just one example out of many. So if you enjoy that then please go ahead.

If there's something that I really really like is the author's description about the looks of various photoshoots, runway walks, and makeup that makes it quite easy to imagine and is plenty touching as well. The interaction of ML and MC at the end; their career and heartfelt resolution summed up the novel in a pretty sweet way.

Overall, 3.2/5 <<less
