Stop Bothering Me, Emperor

When Song Xiao was young, he wanted to become a Virtuous Official for a lifetime, but was forced to marry into the palace by that uncooperative Emperor; when his Virtuous Empress For A Lifetime career had just started, the Emperor died……

Opening his eyes again, he’d come to the twenty-first century. The once highly-talented and literary Scholar Lang also has to carry his book bag and face the college entrance examinations. Just that, this table-mate looks a little familiar……

His Majesty the Emperor: ▼_▼ Lend me your homework to copy

Song Xiao: ……

I'm only halfway done with SBME and I'm falling in love more and more with the story.

SX and YT had a massive misunderstanding in their past lifetime and now that they're living in the modern era, they can freely and openly love each other.

Stayed up until sunrise to read at least up to the 1st book. Its really entertaining and endearing at the same time. Really appreciate the translation done by Callis or Chrysanthemum Garden.

Will give a full review once I've read the fully translated chapters.

I've finished the raw, and I really love it. It doesn't have too much drama or misunderstanding, so you can enjoy every single chapter and how their relationship getting better and better. Also, it doesn't drag out, Song Xiao and Emperor will meet quite early, idk if I feel that way because I read it in one go, but they definitely meet really early in the story.

Does the Emperor remember Song Xiao ?

... more>>

Yep, Emperor also remember his past life, And we'll see it early. There's a lot of characters who also remember their past lives. Mostly them who's inside the hall at the time when the Emperor died. Emperor's eunuch remembers his past life too, though in modern time he's no longer an eunuch xDD he's more of a butler in modern time. There's also a dark wei who will protect the Emperor in modern time too, he actually also doing Emperor test paper if I understand mtl correctly xD Emperor's younger brother who ascended the throne after the emperor died will be there too, though he's still an infant <33 And a General.


I'm only reading through mtl and already enjoy it so much, so I'm sure that the translated chapters will be much more enjoyable <33 <<less

Really cute at the start.

Then it drags on after they get to college

And gets pretty racist at the overseas arc (many racist stereotypes and China praising in later chapters)

... more>>

According to the novel: Americans are apparently shallow, petty, and perverted who are "bad at math compared to the Chinese". African-Americans (called simply "black man” here) deal drugs and are thug-like. Filipinos are mentioned as maids. The mixed-race uncle is the villain. Be ready for people be described as yellow, white, or black.

Also poor people are ALWAYS uncultured moneygrubbers without morals.

The sheer ignorance turned me off.


Not very well written/translated. <<less

WARNING: If you cant stand MTL and bad translation please dont bother. The language really done my head in and I got awfully dizzy sometimes in deciphering what some sentences mean. Im thankful something is even there tho.

However, if you persevere you will be able to read about two cute ancient couples going forward in time and re-continuing their bubbly love. The ML gong is the standard super rich, super handsome, super controlling ML template however he really do cherish his shou and try to make up for what he... more>> think is his fault of the past life. The shou MC meanwhile also love the ML however he is naturally reserved and try his hardest to stand on his own two feet.

Their interactions are cute, and sometimes they are bothered by stinking females (in any standard BL novels, all females stink) however the lovey-doviness make up for it. ML is just too adorable in his quest to get back his partner sometimes its too stupid its hilarious.

read this for a feel-good ride. <<less

I actually enjoy this BL very much!!

Normally, I would only read BL manga and watch anime and for this novel, at first, I was only give it a test for 1 chapter but it seemed that I cannot stop looking forward to new translated everyday. I love the dry humor and that's it was not long-witted, directly clear to the point.

Ok, for one, was there really a need for two evil, stupid, gold-digging wannabe stepmothers who are both actresses? They're basically the same person, except that one of them has an equally shitty daughter and the other has a history of repeated abortions (which is provocative shorthand to establish her as a terrible person you should hate, but unrealistic, misogynistic "abortion queen" trope aside, doesn't even make sense considering pregnancy causes changes to your body--including weight distribution and metabolism--that no actress could take on so casually over and over, but... more>> this story doesn't care about plausibility, or logic, or fair representation of women). Even if you don't agree that's gross sexism, you can't defend that as anything other than poor writing. The antagonists are brainless, the MC's dad is a spineless slut, the MC is an ~unintentional jerk~ due to ~cultural differences~ (but we're supposed to cheer for his "face-slapping" or whatever) but doesn't seem to be trying to learn or adjust to updated norms at all (honestly I don't blame the girls at his school or the people on the internet for the way they viewed him at all, the optics were bad son), and why does the ML keep making the MC do his homework for him? Is this reflective of how he conducted royal business in their previous life too? Do your own damn assignments, and be nicer to your baby brother who supported you and your love in your past life!

Reading the reviews below, it's racist too? What are the redeeming qualities here? <<less

NOTE FOR GRAMMAR NAZIS: Chrysanthemum Garden is re-translating this so before giving this an unfair rating because of the earlier poor translation, give the story another chance because it's pretty nice. And the ML is a good guy w/c is a big plus.

The uke is very likable. Any kind of bishes never got to one-up our MC. He does not easily fall for tricks like those dumb Ukes you see everywhere. He is intelligent and has a good temperament. I can easily recommend this to anyone because of him. In... more>> every Isekai, my pet peeve is whenever the story leave big question marks of how they transmigrate to another world/time. And this properly concluded the isekai thing. Ending made me smile. Ultimate karma for the cause of it all made one satisfactory ending. <<less

The story is unique, usually the MC is reincarnated to ancient time but, this story is the reverse.. So the way they think is different to modern times people, and that's creating a fresh plots. Hope the TL could continue to translated this story until it's finish..

It's a pretty cute story of the male Empress and Emperor as they continue to care for each other and discover their feelings. It's decently written but towards the abroad arc, there are A LOT of american stereotypes and racism that makes it kind of a turn off to read and it did bring my evaluation of the work to drop. But it is a good option to read if you are in between novels.

The whole story is amazing. I first found it months ago, and when I got back and found there hadn't been any new releases in months, I cracked and read the MTL. A lot got lost in translation, but I love the relationship between the Emperor and his Empress. The author also references one of their other books in this one about a palace full of cats, and I loved it, too.

I don't mean to offend anyone and the translator had clearly stated their position in the prologue chapter, nevertheless I'd like to see this novel re-translated one day. It's already enjoyable as it is now which makes me anticipate how brilliant it could be with a more thorough translation.
I loved tracking small changes in both MC and ML's characters when they explored and integrated in the new world. Side characters were also quite well-written, although I'm still struggling with accepting that almost every female character (except for mother and... more>> sister of ML) were heartless b***hes. Even the ones who had yet to graduate from middle school!
The ending is so heartwarming that it almost brought me into tears (and I was still at my work place pretending to be all busy and serious). It deserves all 5 stars and I'd rather people did not reduce their rating based on the quality of translation. <<less

cute in HS and then not so much when they get to America. It quickly becomes apparent that the author has no idea and did zero research, even when it comes to the basics (i.e. Drinking age is 21 not 18 and underage can't even get through the door of a bar, let alone drink). And since when is it not safe at night? People go out clubbing all the time and have no problems. Safety depends more on the area you are in but that's true in all countries.... more>> There was also lots of racism, elitism, xenophobia and the normal nationalist propaganda found in most other Chinese works set in a modern era though it's most noticeable in the middle while they're in America. Once they're back in China it calms down again.

as for the rest of the story; I like how they got together early on and sorted out their misunderstandings from the past but I feel like the author took the easy way out by making most of the trouble all about family conflict. Not that it doesn't happen IRL but life is so much more than just grandpa not liking that you have a boyfriend and relatives trying to steal your position. I expected something better since the beginning was very good, but I felt disappointed at the direction things took.

thank you to the translator. <<less

Really happy that this got translated completely, at least I kinda get what happened and I get closure. Translation was a bit rough and takes time to understand sometimes.

Storywise... It was good, not a serious story and I'd treat it more comedic. There are parts that are racist but as I said, just treat it as some kind of comedy. Plot gets boring after a while I guess, but if you just want to kill some time this story works.

A very fluffy and sweet romance that spawns thousands of years. All the reincarnated individuals are funny, the main couple works out the barriers that didnt allowed them to show their love freely now that there arent ministers and naggy politics to drag them down. The translations get better with time, so dont be discourage when reading it!

There is no tension, no suspense, there is no humor (cause both characters are boring as f..), girls are as usually portrayed as dumb and milking money... you get all the stereotype bullsh*t you want, including awwwwwwww scenes (where I usually roll my eyes so hard that I m afraid to get blind). The most interesting episode was the first one...

What to say about this novel...

Overall is good. A light not serious reincarnation bl novel.

Idea, and plot are interesting. With a flavor of BL in it.

... more>> Translation.... confusing but I got over it and just went forward

Let's talk about the novel instead.

The part that I like and will read again, is the one with his father, the 'concubine' lol and 'concubine' daughter. Too bad, after dealing with the women, even his father part was cut short.

Too much holes in the plots. One time ML is dealing with his family in USA, then go home to China, and those problems in USA goes poof, wont be mentioned again. Then, the big problem that makes ML to come home, just get shelved and locked and solved 2 or 3 chapters before final ep, and it was soooo lame solving!

Butt, I still will read the part SX deals with his family aka his womanizing father problems.

I'm too lazy to rant. Just read my 2nd sentence up there.

Ah, several reviews mentioned abt racism, well let's be real and think about it. Even most of Americans are racist with their own people. The author is Chinese, I'd never expect the author to write a glorified America and maybe the author just like everybody is too biased to see outside his/her own countrymen. <<less

RATING = 100/5 !

You will love all the sweetness ! And you will laugh a lot because of the reincarnation of the others characters !

Bear with the translation (it's not worse that google translation) so be brave and dont drop the reading (it's kind of acceptable after a while).

Excually this story was good, but the translation, kinda... Make you used your brain more,... Ugh, I'm stoped read this book after 14 chapter,... I'm give up,..

But, the story I think its was good enough, the ML was super posesive, but, not overbearing, he respect the MC,...

For MC, he always go with the flow ~i guess~ since he always follow whanever the ML want,... Sigh,... Such an obedient wife la~~
