Strategy to Capture that Scum Gong


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

As a true over-bearing president scum gong, when Xie He for the Nth time rejected his admirer, he heard a sentence in his head: “Congratulations on achieving the “rejects 100 hosts” accomplishment; as an award you will soon bind to the “Scum Gong and Cheap Shou” system, entering other worlds to complete capture missions.

As a scum gong, Xie He expresses that it is very easy to hide one’s true colors, but…“I Heard My Boyfriend’s Brother Secretly Loves Me,” “Teacher Love Me One More Time,” “Raising Youth Manual,” “Your Majesty, This Servant Obeys,” “The Tyrant Lord’s Substitute Lover,” “Captive of the Empire,” “Disciple’s Cultivation Furnace”…

Xie He: Wait a minute. These words sound really strange… and why is my role the ‘cheap shou’?

System: Fighting poison with poison. Using scum to overcome scum. I’ll be relying on you to abuse the scum gong! Remember to not OOC~

Xie He: He he.


Xie He: Hm? You say all the scum gong love me? Sorry, I only love myself.

I avoid tragedy tags like the plague because I'm a baby and I don't want to cry. But it's different when it comes to this novel because the MC is acting according to the world mission. Yeah the ML is acting too but there's that safe space knowing that the characters aren't REALLY broken in and everything is so hopeless and depressing.

Also, it made me realize I do like seeing the scum gong abused to death while the shou may appear fragile and emotionally jilted but is in fact, not... more>> affected. <<less

This was one of the first few BL novels I read and I loved it alot. I can still remember the story even after close to a year and that just goes to show how impactful it has been for me!

Do give this novel a try!! And if you like it, do check it the other story (same universe) "The Scum Shou's Survival Guide" (渣受生存手册)

major (?) spoiler


The ML was actually one of those who tried to capture the MC!!

One of the best fast wear novel you would ever find!

Different from others fast wear that is rushing pace, each chapter of this story is quite long and satisfied, so each world has a deep story-line. Every world has the potential to be a long (dog blood, drama, tragedy, misunderstanding) story.

The emotional level of this story is out of the world. I found my-sensitive-self cried my eyes out almost every single world. So if you like a heavy story with comady undertone and very good writing, you have to give... more>> this one a try.

  • Systems are so cute!! I love them.
  • First, it seems like there is no ML, but don't worry it's a player v player.
  • Every world is BE, but the whole story is HE.

For the best (tearing) effect, I suggest you read the whole world in one go. <<less

I love this novel, the first I read it, I think what kind the final arc will be. And after read arc 1, I cant stop to read the next.

The MC is someone with calm personality. He always have the way to make ML love him and then give a wonderfull good bye.

If you like hurt story like me, I can recomended you to read this one.

I enjoyed reading this story a lot! Even though the arcs in the beginning are a bit slow, the angsty arcs just gets better as you continue on the story! The angst is definitely strong with this novel, even though I know that the MC is just acting I still cry at how tragic some of the arcs became (maybe its because I have a glass heart or this novel is just too good.) You truly feel pity for the characters that the MC is acting as and you feel... more>> the angst when everything hits the fac and the MC begins his torment of the ML in that arc. The arcs are all decently paced, no too fast developments or too long plots, and each arc feels refreshing in its world and characters. Although I do admit that sometimes the story does get repetitive with how the angst is delivered.

Nevertheless, this is a great story if you're a person like me who likes to read about the angst and cry. Note: most (if not all) the arcs are BE. However, if I remember correctly, the ending is a HE. <<less

So much pain in every single world. The MC is a master actor and manipulator and it takes him very little time to plan out each attack. Don't expect happy endings in any of the worlds. Also, as a warning, there is rape (sort of; it's all within the MCs plots and plans), captivity, toys, a little bondage and torture. There's physical, mental and s*xual abuse (though again, the MC is acting) if you can't stomach that then you won't like this novel. ... more>>

Despite them not being blood related the one with his dad was really skwicky. I can handle brotherxbrother much better than the dad thing. Ewww.


The ML is yandare in all the worlds, like in every world is not quite right, and always seems to be easily played by the MC. Not my cup of tea and I wont say more about him.

I'm not sure how to rate this because the stories had a lot of things in them I particularly don't like and yet they were well written enough and the characterization good enough that I kept reading despite myself; that really says something about the quality of the writing itself.

edit: I originally rated this a 4 but after reading scum shou I realized the writing here was better and this worlds stories were fresh and not a continuous repeating cycle and I raised it 5. This is very rare for me and I don't think I've ever rated another story with rape in it at a 5, even if the rape here is all part of the MCs manipulations and he's actually willing and enjoying himself on the inside. <<less

The story is a fast wear story, where the MC is a cool headed, smart, and knows how to control the situation.

The ML is the same throughout all the world's taking on different appearances yet overall character stays the same throughout the multiple realms. The romance is fire and only adds to the plot (not is the plot)

The MC and ML are both characters tied to a system. So it player vs player.

There's a lot more to the novel but I shan't spoil it all.

Do you like dog blood dramas? Do you like crying your heart out? Most importantly, do you like watching how scum gong (s) suffer? Then this is the novel for you!

As is common in fast wear, the arcs here consist several world each with a distinct characters. To be honest, the MC is simply a bastard that enjoys making people suffer; but the story is written in two differing perspective, one from the MC perspective as he plots to gain affection from the ML and the point of view of... more>> the 'characters' in a particular world. So there's enough angst to go around and enough brevity from the MC and the system (and also to remind you that this is a quick wear novel).

Each arcs can honestly stand as its own story, some are more memorable than others. There's also a lot of noncon/dubcon, some incest and a lot of suffering for the ML.

All in all, an okay read. 4/5 stars <<less

Would have given it a 5 star if that ending didn't completely ruin everything for me. It's the same as when an author wrote about how the story you're reading is all just a dream. It made me feel so cheated. ... more>>

The target (ML) is actually a coherent character and is the one who decides how much good feelings MC can receive. So I'm renaming this: THE BOOK OF SADISTS AND MASOCHISTS (How to torture the one you love). A much better S&M story than 50 shades haha.


Good thing it's only around 200 chapters or I would've flipped a table. Everything and everyone just went sideways.

It's a unique premise for a story but still kinda lacking in build-up, I guess? That it made me WTF at the end, and not in a good way. I should've dropped it before the final arc.

Also, I MTLed this and it's good; very readable. <<less

I liked this one a lot!

It should be read prior to the Scum Shou's, to my mind this way the story is much easier to comprehend. Also reading it with a proper translation instead of straight MTLing might be helpful as well.

The main character is just the type that I like. He's smart, he's strong (at least mentally), he has his physical needs, and he knows how to tame his ruthless lover. :) Every chapter is long enough to thoroughly enjoy each of the nine (was it nine? It must... more>> be) worlds. Storylines are quite interesting, although I can't say that there are plenty of original ideas in there.

It was a nice read and I would highly recommend this novel to anyone interested in transmigration BL novels. <<less

So far, unexpectedly well written. And don't scoff at these 14 chapters, the chapters are of a respectable length and it feels like we're almost at the end of the first arc.

Unexpectedly good, because though it starts off as these stories tipicly do and the drama unfolds as it typically would, the MLs abuse and affection are narrated very seriously even though MC makes light of it.

At least for the first arc, it is a study in unhealthy relationships, to me facenating and well depicted in but a few chapters.... more>> However, definitely take the trigger warnings seriously if you are affected by such. Though MC is not affected beyond what is done to his physical body, because he's a bastard who doesn't let anyone touch his heart, the physical and emotional abuse the role he plays is still described.

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what the author will cook in in the next arc. <<less
