This is pretty simple and quick. Novel for one evening though it's even smaller. At first I don't think that ML was homophobic but this is good. We can see pov both characters and can understand their feels better. I all time smiled when ML showed his feelings but hid them behind a stone face. This is so cute huh. I really enjoyed their tender and a bit childish feelings how they step by step fall in love. But in my opinion this is very short and small disclosed. I... more>> just think this is fun and fluffy novel about two silly children heh. <<less

thank you to the translator! Unfortunately, this story was not my cup of tea, so I didn't really like it. Basically its a school setting with innocent x scum pairing. The shou is a student in an exhange program and takes classes and has lab. Gong is a grad student in charge of the lab.

the main conflict is basically (small spoiler) ... more>>
Spoiler

gong lying about his identity on the dating app, and then trying to reconcile with the shou

[collapse]

my critical rant/review (big spoiler)

Spoiler

main pairing is actually sensitive white lotus x rich emotionless scum gong. The shou is a damsel in distress who is always clumsy and coincidentally twists his ankle at convenient times. I can totally imagine this story as a bg romcom drama.

if the gong is homophobic, the shou is a closet. In the beginning, gong dislikes shou bc he's too girly, but then he later gets over it really quick, and the rest of the novel he's like in love. At times, he's got a random golden finger, and always knows where the shou goes without explanation. (Ie, shou ges a taxi to a diff hotel from gong, and somehow, gong still knows which hotel he went to as well as his room number.)

as for the shou, his character is contradictory. He's supposed to be super social and friendly, but then later, it's revealed he has no friends. (Ie, he was originally ostracized at the lab he works at bc the gong disliked him, but outside of the lab he doesn't talk to anyone. The shou is supposed to be popular who got confessions from both genders.) after the gong confesses his identity, the rest of the novel is basically dogblood of shou rejecting gong bc he hated gong's true identity so much. The shou gets ptsd symptoms bc of the shock and then there's a small timeskip where he avoids the gong. The gong lets shou has his space, then grovels to shou by being gentlemanly and stuff.

I'm the first reader and reviewer! Yay!

Anyways, I got hooked by just the first few chapters, so why not try it?

It's short, realistic but sweet, just my cup of tea, and I'm sure most of you will like it!

The ML isn't really homophobic but rather unable to understand things about emotions more like, so there isn't too much angst if you expected a ton. And in my opinion, the ML's much more clingy. ^^

Loved it. Concise, realistic, modern, relatable, well written and well translated, a simple love story that started with deceit but ends well. I liked how the author resolved the conflict once the truth was out, with both MCs' reactions realistic and coherent and did not rush the conclusion.

its so bittersweet that I cried. What I love the most here is the development of the MC and the ML's relationship. Its step-by-step and realistic. This story is so beautiful its worth the read.

My cup of tea. I've always liked misunderstandings as the main theme of quick bl novels. This one didn't have much conflict but it was well written and translated.

A cute story that was really well translated. The resolution came a bit quick considering how angsty it was getting. Pure fluff.

The synopsis of the story is a bit misleading, the 'top' never really "hates" the other nor is homophobic. The main point of the story was resolved rather realistically.

The story is not bad but is definitely not my favourite either. If you're looking for a quick, casual reader, then this will be good.

Story aside, the translations are very good and easy to read. Thank you, TL.

Okay story but I don't like the start that much ... more>>
Spoiler

I kinda felt bad about MC's situation at the start, he became a social outcast in their classes because of ML not knowing him personally but rejecting MC approaching him for friendship. (Because someone hinted at him that maybe MC is doing something with the Proffessor to get the exchange student slot) which in turn makes MC life there as an exchange student lonely with no friends. But after getting to know MC from the dating app, he realizes that MC is a good person and started to get attracted to him.. ML lied to him about who he was which is really not good, lol if ML was ugly then this would be a story of catfishing, lol but since he is handsome then this story is sweet. MC was devastated when he found out about the lies, but later on because of ML persistence in wooing him, he accepted ML and thus Happy Ending.

[collapse]

The story was built up with lies but since ML is handsome, everything goes well in the end lol I will still give this a five eventhough the ML is a scum at the beginning since I am bias with Danmei. Thanks for translating this!!!😍😍😍😘😘 <<less

Well everyone, I now see why the ratings have gone down.

I remember seeing this novel rated quite highly and then all of the sudden it went to a 4.3. I've been holding off on reading this for a while because the summary of a "homophobic top" really made me apprehensive.

Is there going to be dog blood drama?

... more>> How in the world are the two protagonists going to papapa!? (Mind you I put this in my list mainly because of the adult and mature tag)

Anyways, I finally decided to read it and I finally understand why the rating dropped.

It's entirely anecdotal.

Let's address the elephant in the room, most of us would not forgive the gong so easily. Considering the fact that our shou literally had an extremely strong reaction after finding out the truth, the resolution was very rushed.

We'd all would have liked it to be fleshed out more and like I said, I personally felt the gong was let off to easily, hence the anecdotal part.

But it was realistic and it was consistent with the shou's optimistic characterization. Because of this realism, it makes you connect and relate to possible future events in life, but it is an unpopular choice since many people are vengeful. Due to this, it's more than enough to give it a 5 star.

Personally, I'm lukewarm towards the male lead but I understand the moral of the story.

Should you read it? Yes. It does pretty well for the amount of chapters and the choices of the protagonists warns and gives advice if this were ever to happen to and of the readers.

Is the shou too much of a saint? Idk, you decide.

What I feel personally? Well, I would have liked it to be extended a few more chapters with the shou making the gong wait 3 years before getting "together".

Of course, I understand the other sides point of view: forgiveness, complex human emotions, and misunderstandings. However, that's just me. Making the other party suffer a little more makes the reward sweeter.

5/5

Adieu and enjoi :)

P.s. This definitely would be the mould of a scum gong in a certain QT novel <<less

Quick read. Relatable; BL theme aside, we never know how our actions affect others. Slow burn romance, realistic feelings.

The story is not bad tho it's not the greatest read either. It's short and sweet and that's it.

Spoiler

The story was indeed somewhat realistic but at the same time, it was not. It was said in the story that our MC is naturally good-looking, even comparing the ML with his previous suitors, so I can't rlly grasped the fact that he was ostracized just because the ML didn't like him. He sounds perfectly okay with socializing whenever he talked about his life before the transfer so his situation is a bit unbelievable.
Regardless, I was wowed at how MC reacted when the truth was out. He acted how a normal people would react in that situation. That part was really sad but I liked how it showed raw realistic feelings +1

I also like how the author manage to show the ML's feelings without destroying the ML's established cool and aloof character.

Not giving it a 5/5 because I felt the story lacked proper conclusion, a bit anti-climatic for all the built up drama tho the author probably initially want it to end this way. Still a happy end so all's good.

This is a good read for people who want a fast non-mainstream read. You should give it a try. <<less

I really liked this little novel. I was able to understand most of the characters thoughts and reaction. The characters are quite realistic and have a cute relationship. However, their relationship was built on lies in the beginning. The novel and characters reconize that was wrong. They cause each other to change and make up for what they did. The set up is cliche but the characters made it pushed it to be more than that. I found the novel very sweet with the appropriate amount of fluff and angst.

The... more>> Shou is a little prideful and has perseverance. I like his character, his cute, funny, kind, and logical (most of the time). He can be kind to people he doesn't like but still openly dislike that person.

The Gong, his character is very silent (this causes opening for many misunderstandings) and cold to most people. He seems to put most people in two categories doesn't mind/care and dislikes. There's only like, two characters I would say he likes and one is the shou. He stops being homophobic quite quickly. He doesn't understand liking someone and we watch him change and learn about liking another person. <<less
