As a useless spoiled wild child, Bai YiHan finally brought about the end of his family, chased away the one he loved and caused his own death. After rebirth, he decides to cleanse himself and work hard at being a good child. But a lot of things don’t seem to be as he expected…

Bai Pa + Bai Ma: My son’s so obedient. Someone must be bullying him. This cannot be forgiven!

Bai Big Bro + Bai Big Sis: If my little brother’s sensibility comes from his suffering, then I’d rather he be a spoiled brat forever!

Mu JingYuan: If HanHan hits you, you must accept it. Yet you dodged…The wind’s changing. Someone should be bankrupt to make HanHan smile.

Bai YiHan: …I was so wild in my past life. Your involvement are undeniable!

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.

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.

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

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

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 stupid and wasted his time before so he's still stupid. 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)

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.

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 stupid 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

Decent novel though full of misunderstandings.

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. After rebirth, he became ur typical white lotus... and so far there are NO schemes (revenge) fr MC til c80.

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

Got a lil bored. Will rerate after I finish the novel.

Eh, it’s okay for a book where the MC isn’t that capable. At least he acknowledges this. This author seems to have a bad habit of lowering character’s IQ for the sake of plot, which is always a big no-no for me. Also, I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel like the author is a fujo. There’s like 1 heterosexual pairing that was formed in the whole of the book. Even the bloody side characters are gay! And you’re telling me heterosexual couples are still the norm?!... more>> At least act like that’s the case instead of using your characters to fulfil your desire to see all gay couples. Author seems to be allergic to proper punctuation and using the right characters; I doubt they wrote it with pinyin input (Miao 淼 -> Sen 森).

Kinda spoilery, concerns my thoughts on villains:


Kinda felt sorry for Qi Mingyang, wish his POV was extended. He wasn’t so bad, just ended up being an antagonist. Wish we saw a good ending pan out for him after he got fished out of the sea by a handsome foreigner. Kinda felt bad for He Yuan even though he was a bit of a dick. Didn’t feel bad for Yan Miaomiao, she was an entitled bit*h (though I must say I was holding out hope, up until the point she attempted to immolate herself and her family)

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

As I’ve read tragic-past and reincarnation type of novel so far, this one is the best of the best. It’s so realistic. Even though the MC did got a second chance and lived his good-past life again, but his past which traumatized him was still there. It wasn’t erased or take on lightly like some other novel, it was taken care of carefully and in details that couldn’t be described any better.

While the family youngest-son-cons things going on, the MC was struggling with his own emotions and toke on those... more>> feeling this time as to cherish it and savior it. I really love this MC. Although on some reviews said about their dramatic situation is an unimportant-situation, I think it looks fine to me. It have a satisfaction feelings to it. Or maybe I haven’t read to that point yet? Anyway, I’ll update after new chapter is out. <<less

For the first I read this novel, I like the story. MC is cute character. But, I think something wrong. MC maybe crazy because his past life. I try my best for read this one, but I cant read this until end, I dont know why. I always repeat, and always stop on the same part.

So, even I said that I love this one, I cant give 5 star for this.

It seems pretty cute, has potential. Nothing super unique yet, but I'm excited by these "suddenly became a different person" scenarios.

So far, the family and MC all seem lovable. It's absurd why the family loves him so much, but that's the premise so I won't question it haha. But wow, seriously this guy is so loved and protected anyone that lays a finger on him can only dream of staying alive another day. Hehe, I love this type of premise though, so it's enjoyable for me!

But surprise! Even for me... more>> who is usually super picky about MTL, the raws are actually pretty easy to MTL! It's not perfect (far from it), but I'm really amazed. In a chapter, maybe only 4 or 5 sentences are entirely incomprehensible.

Edit: WHOA plot twist! Be careful reading spoilers.... technically the synopsis gave it away but a lot of these synopses are so hard to understand I ignore half of it anyway.

Honestly the OG novel is too terrible though, basically the happy ending for the FL is when ML dies and she inherits all his money.... like wut, author could've at least written that ML falls in love with FL back after a while. No novel in the world is as unfulfilling, it's not very realistic lmao

The story doesnt just revolve on the main couple but touches on the stories of all the other side characters. It seems like a compilation of short stories in one book. This is probably an attempt on the author's part to make all characters 3D and give them proper backgrounds.

There are a lot of misunderstandings but were easily resolved after 2 chapters or so. Mtl is very easy to read.
