this has a lot of drama in it and unlike most rebirth novels it's more realistic in some things. The MC doesn't just shake off the horrible things that happened to him just because he was reborn nor go on a revenge rampage. He suffers from nightmares, PTSD, and depression, among other things. I was impressed that the author was willing to write about some of the real after effects of r*pe and torture (though his having s*x with the ML while still so traumatized is questionable). This is one... more>> of the very few BL (or GL) novels I've read that shows a mostly realistic aftermath; what the victim goes through psychologically and has to live with on a daily basis. It was hard to read, but I prefer this to those stories where the MC is raped and then falls in love with the person who hurt them. Normally i'd take off another star because of the r*pe tag but because of the way the author wrote the MC and the true to life trauma that wasn't magicked away, I finally decided not to.

there were, of course, things I didn't like. It's hard to avoid DRAMA when that's the genre and I sometimes got impatient when it went particularly melodramatic on me. The misunderstandings really pissed me off on occasion as it felt like they were thrown in just because and served no purpose other than to pad the story and as as an excuse for more gratuitous angst and drama. I wont even get into the crazy girl. She was just annoying. The side couples were cute but kind of annoying when their story got in the way and took over the story without warning. I wish they would have saved the side couples for the extras. Over all I thought the story was flawed but still pretty good. <<less

I MTL-ed the whole thing.

This is a refreshing heart wrenching rebirth story. You can't help but love Bai YiHan, empathize with him, cry with him for his demise and the pain his trauma had caused and can't help but cheer him on as he tries his hardest to overcome his trauma from previous life and avoid the mistakes he made before.

The misunderstanding sometimes are funny but there's also angsty huge misunderstanding near the end I almost want to skip the whole thing.

Fair warning for those with triggers, there are mentions... more>> of r*pe and extreme physical violence, it wasn't very detailed but it wasn't glossed over either. I managed to endure during those moments and continue reading. But be warned and stay safe. I, myself, skip any story with r*pe tag.

This one is an exception within an exception.

The MC is that useless younger brother that usually be a cannon fodder but because of the trauma he went through and how he process his rebirth, I can't help but love him and want to shelter him too. The ML I don't really like, but I tolerate him on account that he makes the MC happy, so. The star in this story is truly the MC.

The story telling is a little choppy sometimes, but it wasn't a hindrance, over all a satisfying read. I recommend reading this novel.

Also, Translation work is great. Easy to read, no confusing grammar, you can enjoy reading it. <<less

This really gives a whole new meaning to rebirth stories.

Ive read so many rebirth novels with same cliches, op MC that seems to know/remember everything, died in the most awful way possible but doesnt seems to have much impact on them aside being angry getting revenge and all that.

Here, you will see how the novel touches the most realistic way of how a person reacts after all that horrible horrible things and undegoing rebirth.

You can see his trauma, his pain, his regret. You can see that in his 1st life... more>> he is useless and ignorant that when he rebirth, his knowledge is as limited as his 1st life, no instant knowledge of too much info from the future, just enough info for him to be considered having the normal amount of limited info and knowledge (like knowing about the most popular business venture, or the accident related to his family)

Its really good. I actually cried alot 😭😭😭 <<less

Dropped this novel.

Its safe to say that I've been emotionally triggered from reading this story. I'm sorry, but I think I hate this novel. The author somehow portrayed a victim from verbal and physical abuse too lightly. Even the strongest person can break from such torture, yet the MC is somehow just fine.

Its not..... right.

I feel so disgusted.

And I feel unnecessary pain while reading this. Its a big mistake to read this while you're not in the right state of mind or heart.

May be I haven't fall in love before...... this just not suit my taste. Its simply ridiculous how much the MC is suffering because of love. I've only read till ch 25 and it left a bitter taste in my mouth. His sister and supposedly ML never care about MC. They just assume this is what he wants and never asked him what he feels about it. Its just seems...... so selfish. It fxck my mind so bad that I have to cleanse my mind with some fluffy BL.

I binged it all in a few hours and I was crying the whole time. The main character is very cute and has some PTSD from his past life. I like how MC doesn't instantly get over it and seek for revenge like other stories. He reflects and tries to be a better person (a good child). The story has just the right amount of angst and I cannot stress enough how cute the MC is!!

Took one star off because side pairings taking over. I mean, they're cute and all but it's pretty annoying.

This is a fairly realistic take on being reborn. MC is determined yet afraid of screwing things off. He didn't suddenly become a genius. He's s*upid and wasted his time before so he's still s*upid. He just became cautious and more cherishing of things he has.

The "misunderstanding" get solved within 50 chapters which was fairly quick yet we will see other struggles.

So if you're averse to somewhat meek MC (not that bad... more>> but compared to your usual seizing all mc) you might not like this.

But he gone through a lot like gang raep, abuse, etc and it shown by his nightmares

he slept with ML when he's drunk because he thought it was a dream where ML saved him and reciprocate his feeling. And author inserting hypnosis hypothesis was a very interesting take on someone who suddenly got a personality change overnight


Also for those who got curious what happened in MC's 1st life after he died


after he got shot, mc's sis called ML who finally fly back. There he saw MC's dead body with opened eyes. MC's mom said they couldn't close his eyes and they said his last wish was to see ML so he closed MC's eyes. He blamed himself for running away. He took mc's sis (?) As a vase wife and take care of mc's family. He went into a coma when he get drunk infront of mc's grave. And hug it. He gave his company to mc's bro. When he went into a coma he "dreamt" that he was in a corridor to his company/house (?) And when he opened the door MC was there smiling at him. (Basically he got in to the reality where mc's in)

A very decent read. Y’know those characters that are meng incarnate and just there for cute factor? They’re usually small children or animals? Well, our main character is basically that after rebirth in the eyes of everyone in the story. The beginning starts off more as a hyper brocon/childcon and seems like a comedy but it turns into a long drama story quite quickly.

Overall it’s not bad, MC’s PTSD isn’t glossed over and no one laughs it off, the family moments are cute, and MC’s reborn status doesn’t turn him... more>> into some prodigal son. The ML’s kinda your typical CEO but only soft for their sweetheart, but he works ok with MC. I will say due to MC’s meng pet status he reads as 16 or 17 when in reality he’s 24, it makes sense in story because everyone spoiled him rotten but I still was surprised whenever I remembered his actual age. <<less

The MC has insecurities due to his past life, and is flawed in that he doesn't really have a lot of skill/ability. However, he still perseveres through his own pain for his loved ones, and that is what hooked me onto this story. Also, the fact that the ML will literally do anything to keep the MC. He's possessive, but also lets his lover have friends and have a social life. The ML is the MC's largest golden finger. ^^ There were a lot of side couples as well. Some I... more>> liked, others I was less interested in, but they are all fleshed out to some extent.

There is some drama and angst, but the problems are solved in a orderly manner, and the story ends with a happy ending.


I give it a 5 because the story was easy to read and hard to let go of. [MTLable]


I would have loved to see MC's one secret be revealed to the ML at some point, or for the ML to find out that the MC really was reborn and that he'd suffered a lot, but half of that is because I <3 angst at times, and the other half is because I want to see the ML really love all of MC, even the part of him that had been raped, humiliated, rejected, broken, and killed (albeit that was suicide in a way). I suppose we kind of got that a little bit with the ML from the other life who seemed to have merged with the ML from this life, not that the current ML is aware, but I feel like it would have been nice if he was aware. Well, that's my wishful thinking.

I dropped the novel because it became ridiculous imo. The premise was interesting, a rebirth story from a tragic past and moving forward to a happy ending, which isn’t bad, my main problem was

... more>>

the whole world is a story and the girl, Tan, is the reader who transmigrate into the body of Lin’s girl. And bai finds out about it and torture her and make her go crazy with the reasoning of, you’re just a storybook charecter, you’re not real, and he’s like, well I am real it’s my life you cannot make me suffer. The author Could have left the storybook part alone and continue with the rebirth and making life better.


without that part it could have been a great story, it that spoiler ruined it. <<less

When the wedding of the main couple is used as a prop to a side couple and the wedding of the side couple is actually written not like the wedding of the mains couple you know that somthing is wrong. I feel like the author just did not want to keep writing the story of Bai YiHan anymore and to not drop the novel they just canged the focus.

If you plan to read this fic because of the rebirth aspect, I don't recommend at all. More than half of the... more>> story was actually dedicated for the side couple... <<less

Wonderful. The family and male lead are very protective and it's so adorable how they harbor their suspicions about what happened to the MC.

Great characters and the main couple realizes each other's feelings quickly.


I love how the reborn MC in this novel does not only want revenge, you know that type of protagonist who always calmly faces his former enemies and people who disgraced him without blinking an eye. Our MC is much more human. The story follows how his family and ML try to help him out of his suicidal thoughts that are understandable considering what MC had to go through in his past life and how he blames himself for all of it. I just feel refreshed by such a human MC. Because it's not normal if you can stand before someone who killed or disgraced you in your past life without being shocked or terrified. That's something a lot of revenge stories lack. The healing of MC.

One of my fav novel, it's the most realistic rebirth story I have read. Sadly, after half of story, the story was kinda overstretched. I stopped reading after Yihan was saved from second kidnapping. Another couple's story actually ruined my mood. Some reader consider Yihan's ptsd was too lightly. However, male r*pe victim's ptsd was different from female's. You can google it. Yes, male victims have less fear or panic related problem, including escape response, than female. Anger, aggression and depression are more common to male victim. The male victims... more>> of r*pe felt depressed and humiliated because they believed they lost their male pride and dignity. <<less

This book is great. The MC gets a second chance and isn't immediantly good at everything he tries like in some novels. He actually has to try hard and not everything works out. It's realistic (I mean, as realistic as second chance novels can be) and it's translated really well. The only thing that could possibly make it better is if it was updated more frequently.

The novel is decent at first few chapters only. Also, the story is full of misunderstandings and dram that I eventually get pissed. I felt that I wasted my time. I rarely rate 2 or 1 star. I want to rate 1star but, due to realistic PSTD of MC in the first few chapters, I rated 2. Will drop.

MC is (til now) blessed with a warm family but was very spoiled (last life). In his previous life he was tricked (made his family into ruin), raped and also tortured.... more>> After rebirth, he became ur typical white lotus... and so far there are NO schemes (revenge) fr MC til c80. I pity his second chance; if I were him, I would force myself to be strong and equip myself well to prevent the tragedy.

I love how the author portrayed his psychological shadow from the past life.

Got a lil bored since the story is predictable, MC is a coward white lotus whereas the ML is a pervert with no self control. I can't find anything good about ML. <<less

This story idk what to say but I'm highly disappointed. It was little hard for me to digest the fact that MC is really a "waste". Before rebirth he literally used to just eat sleep and throw unreasonable tantrums. After rebirth ofcourse he was still s*upid but a bit mature as they say in the novel i.e. he stopped throwing tantrums and learned to treasure his family.

I also cried a bit while reading MC's past so I don't really hate him but I don't like him either.

About ML I just... more>> lost it at that part where

he took MC's drunken kiss as a consent to have s*x.

Also MC is still suffering from PTSD from his past life so I feel it's really weird that he's so okay with "making love" after being so traumatized and r*ped even though he loves ML I think it's too fast? I mean I guess it's nice that MC hasn't lost his trust on humanity and he doesn't see everyone as monsters and trusts ML too much ?

Also his family... they're a doting family but they're not really so close to MC mostly because of MC's nature so it's not completely their fault. MC never shared anything about his feelings to anyone. His sister who supposedly cared for the him created a rotten plan and made everything a mess and ML agreeing to it is even more s*upid. I mean they could've just tried to ask? even though considering MC's past behaviour he won't say anything about his feelings but they could've atleast tried it right? ML was supposed to the smart one yeah? so why was he so dense to understand that MC was being jealous?

Also it is nice to see that the author atleast showed us mini glimpse (?) of what victims go through (PTSD, Depression, etc) although it's not shown completely real bc it's novel just for entertainment purposes ¯_ಠ_ಠ_/¯. It is still better than other novels where characters just get over it.

Also why is there a sudden transmigration plot?? so this whole story is a novel?? everything's happening in a novel?? I think things are going to get very messy... <<less

I agree with @gryffinpuff

The novel was very good until that point.

When the ML slept with Bai in that situation it felt very wrong, especially given Bai's past and no previous consent or inclination (from ML's perspective) while he was sober. Before they were openly displaying his trauma, and taking it seriously, only to up and go do this. It wasn't romantic or cute, it just left a bad taste in my mouth.

While we know that Bai loves ML undyingly, ML had no idea of it before that night. And even then, it was the drunk ramblings of someone who was hardly conscious and had been drinking heavily for the first time. I realize the author didn't intend anything bad, but I feel ML should have at the very least left it at a kiss (and been regretful of taking advantage of MC so defenseless) and been done with it. It shouldn't have gone as far as it did. Even going past the consent part, I feel like it was unsatisfying from a novel stand point. There was no build up, no tension or anticipation. Bai got drunk in a time of emotional vulnerability and they f*cked. It felt both unsatisfying and unsettling.

After that, it feels as though their relationship progresses too fast.

I mean, they've already slept together (drunkenly, though ML was completely sober) before Bai even confessed to ML and before they even sorted out their feelings. After that, ML is openly head over heels for Bai, and Bai is timidly head over heels back. It's not that this is bad, I just thought that it would have happened over the course of the novel. I was under the impression that there would be a bit more struggle, a little more misunderstandings given Bai's past and ML's part in it (abandoning him), that they would have to work the problems between them out, and that the relationship between them would slowly but surely improve and their misunderstandings would be shed.

Basically I thought there was going to be a build up, and instead they shot right to the end before they even had a chance to start. ML, in my opinion, is also sort of turning into the typical ML. At the beginning he was controlled, reliable and the caring-older-sibling kind of type, now he seems to be turning into the big bad wolf that just wants to eat the little helpless lamb. The way he seems Bai feels more hungry, even if it's still ever devoting and blind, his intentions aren't entirely pure.


Again, I don't think this would be as bad, if not for Bai's past. It just leaves me a little uncomfortable, the way ML is becoming, and a little disappointed that he's turning into the stereotypical ML when he had his own thing going before, but that's just a little nitpick. He still very much loves Bai, but it feels different. Like something changed.

To be clear, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel when I first started. I had high hopes and was looking forward to reading the rest and seeing Bai and the ML's relationship explored and seeing the interesting dynamic between them and how it would play out. For that, because I was excepting something good, I might be too harsh now that I feel disappointed. I feel this isn't a bad novel, it's just not a great one. I will probably finish the novel, if only to see where to goes, and because Bai is so cute. Although depending on how their relationship develops from here, I might end up dropping it.

On the note of the novel developing, @arixari (does tagging even work?)

Does the story really turn out like that? Because if so, that honestly sounds like it went to hell.

Another rebirth story with the MC being reborn after a tragic death. MC's family is very cute and love spoiling the MC (albeit to an unbelievable degree). What's refreshing (and something I never really thought about before) is that the past is not just glossed over after the rebirth, the MC suffers from PTSD and it is described realistically.

The ML seemed like a relatively likeable character, but it turned sketchy when he sleeps with the MC when MC is under influence of alcohol and in throes of his trauma flashback... more>> - that's not good at all! And MC seems kinda ok with it the next morning! Doesn't seem too realistic for someone suffering from PTSD from being raped etc... <<less

Readable, but this story look like clown fiesta to me.

Guilty gg? Ofcourse yes, who if not him? He got what deserved. Guilty only he alone, and loving family just the victims? They gave him all! Ha ha ofcourse not! What a joke. They too group of s*upid bastards, who spoil him rotten because they feel like it. People wont become smart with flowing of time, they learn from events what happened during the flow of time. What they expected? Divine revelation struck him from the sky and he become good... more>> after? Haha! Most hilarious part, that's what happened. Thus in my conclusion this story about clowns dancing together.

And about those people who said like: - "oh no! After such misfortunes he wouldn't behave this way!" Don't think you know all people in the world, to say nobody will be like this, you think too high of yourself.

about errors in the text, english my second language, so whatever. <<less

The story's good and the translator did a marvellous job.

However, the reason why I'm giving this four stars is that chapters are really too short. Chapter 40 was 661 words, and that's the usual length of a chapter in this story. They are all under 1k and it is a bit of a shame whenever there's an update but the story content in the chapter feels too short.

It's not the translator's fault, though. Personally, I would have posted bundles of chapters together to create a 'mega chapter', in groups of... more>> five chapters. That way each update has more content.

But the story itself is good so far. <<less
