The MC entered the body of the An family eldest son, An Ziran, an arrogant 16 years old boy who weighed 78 kg (~171-172 lbs), who only knew how to eat, play and sleep. Seeing his current body, An Ziran decided his first priority was to LOSE WEIGHT!

Three days later after he became An Ziran, An Ziran’s father and his biological mother died, which meant as the eldest son he had to take over the family business.

Beside his legitimate first wife, An Ziran’s father also married 3 others women, who all wanted to take over the An family fortune but only the eldest son could be able to touch it, therefore they have to depend on An Ziran in order to live a comfortable live.

An Ziran’s father also had an older brother who is always planning to steal the An family fortune. The elder brother of An Ziran’s father and the woman he married had powerful connections. In order to save the An family fortune, An Ziran has to find a golden thigh to cling on. The butler told An Ziran that there is an engagement between the An family and an influential family. Therefore he takes his sister to that family house to make a connection.

However, during their journey, An Ziran’s younger sister overheard that the son of that family is UGLY, so as a beautiful and spoiled young lady coming from a rich household, she didn’t want to marry him and decided to run away. Without any other choice, An Ziran had to take his sister’s​ place and marry that man, who told him that he would let him go soon, but lied.

I've only read a few chapters of this novel, but I'm already finding it hard to continue. I had high hopes when I first read the summary and reviews, but the translations aren't really good so far. It feels like every word is translated literally or done through a translator app. For example, the men An Zi Ran hired were called "strong dudes" when they could've been changed into "bodyguards".

An Zi Ran doesn't seem especially intelligent. He just says whatever he wants without thinking about the consequences. The people around... more>> him underestimate him, but change their minds after An Zi Ran speaks a few words.

The things An Zi Ran has done so far doesn't seem very impressive. The side character's IQ are lower than dirt, but I'm still surprised when An Zi Ran's clumsy attempts at solving problems actually work. I don't know if the writing and translation quality will increase in later chapters, but I'm not interested in continuing right now. <<less

I just read the mtl because I want to know the story. It's good novel about the independent uke in business and the seme just help in background.

This is about An Zhiran that transmigrated and became a fat good for nothing rich merchant eldest young master. After his parent die in accident, he must take care of all the business and the home. With the concubine and uncle that want his business and money. What he do before transmigrating is still a mystery until the part I read. But he's... more>> a calm, clever and good at reading other people eye/intention.

Then there's an engagement with Fu Wutian, a wangye with the parents that already dead and a grandfather with a mental illness. Because An Zhiran's sister run away just a few days before marriage, Fu Wutian want An Zhiran to be his wangfei as a subtitute for his sister.

Spoiler

Their marriage became a big gossip in the capital because the God of War Fu Wangye married a man. At first the emperor want to refused but the former emperor already said that Fu Wutian can marry anyone he want. Fortunately just a little that know An Zhiran face so he can still do his business with ease and just use his title as wangfei if there's a difficult case. Fu Wutian also helping him from behind and sometimes from the front if there's a bad official.

At first their marriage just an agreement but Fu Wutian already had an interest with An Zhiran because his action and personality different from before his parent die (also the day of his transmigration because the former An Zhiran die). And because they always sleep together and Fu Wutian always touching so An Zhiran resistance is melting and he too fall in love with Fu Wutian.

[collapse]

There's some mystery, politics, business and of course romance in the story. So if you like that genre you can read this novel. <<less

Well this novel is my most fav BL because I like bussiness things and the ML support MC both in founding the bussiness place and security.

BTW, this novel have a war between transmigator. You can say transmigator vs transmigator

I mean if you read Transmigator meet reincarnator novel till end, the ML just support MC bussiness in around the end of the story. ML this novel is general too. But he didn't suport MC bussiness 100% in the first part story.

Meanwhile this novel, ML suport MC bussiness full from first till... more>> end story.

And ML didn't just give MC bussiness place but battle and kick the corupt goverment (because ML is like general+excecution+princes that given last orders by previcious emperor to keep the country from everything that can destroy country, even from currently emperor.) Because if you didn't kick the corupt goverment in some place, your business will be screwed by them. The ML KNOW that very well! I like this author :D. Very understand about one of the basic of the bussiness is know the law in your bussiness place. This is the story of two pairing who can keep mutual suport from first till end story.

ML suport MC bussiness. And MC suport ML battle weapon (like gun and armor) for war bc ML is general. But to make that gun and armor, its hard to found the ingredients. MC need ML to find the ingredients. Its like they are the most mutual pairing BL novel ever lol. Other novel character didn't trust each other in first and misunderstanding, this novel character trust each other directly because THEY CAN READ EACH OTHER CHARACTERISTIC AND BEHAVIOR. They are general and exbussiness man, of course in first they must be carefully to read each other behavior. <<less

I'm really loving this story so far. The MC here is actually smart. The readers aren't just told that he is smart (and then he ends up doing dumb things anyway like other "smart" MCs out there), instead we see An Ziran's intelligence through his actions. Subtext has also revealed that MC's previous life wasn't all daisies and sunshines, which likely shaped him into the shrewd person that he is today. I can't wait to delve into his backstory and find out more about him.

I also like that the ML... more>> here is doting, but not super clingy or yandere towards the MC. He gives the MC space, let's him do his thing, and trusts in his judgment. It's really sweet and refreshing to see an actual power couple that treat each other as equals.

I don't know why people are complaining about the translator. I've seen translators that won't translate at all until they get like 50 dollars per a chapter. That's crazy. Some of those stories are really good, but have been on hiatus for a long time because there aren't enough donations. As for the translator of this novel, they never said they were going to stop translating if the readers don't donate. They just said they would pump out even more chapters if they got x amount of support on patreon. I bet the people who complain don't even donate. They just want free BL without paying for other people's hard work. And if you can't afford to give monetary support, that's understandable, just give a word of encouragement. There are people out there who put up translations for free, and this translator is one of them. The updates are consistent, and the translation quality is very good and easy to read. If it weren't for the Chinese names and setting I would've thought I was reading a straight up English novel. And you can clearly see the translations getting better with every chapter.

Don't mind the naysayers, Translator! And keep up the awesome work! I look forward to this story every week. <<less

This story has been quite a ride, and I've enjoyed every step along the way. Ai, recently in my search for new good BL, I've started having to read more and more raws with Bing Translate. The raws for this were especially elusive. Not sure why. But I found them, and couldn't stop until the very end.

I love the main couple here. The MC is basically OP, and he is very smart. Please. I love smart MCs. I really enjoy when the protags can use their modern knowledge to succeed... more>> in their transmigration, and the MC definitely succeeded here. He used his brains and his resources/backing quite well to accomplish what he wanted, and was handsome and physically strong to boot. The ML is also OP, though not as well-rounded as the MC. Of course, he doesn't have to be. Much of his OPness is built up before he meets the MC, mostly focusing on being crazy intelligent and crazy strong. He might not have the knowledge/awareness of business or science-related research of the MC, but he is pretty damn fast at learning it, and never hesitates at supporting the MC with money, politics, or people. Their relationship is so sticky and adorable, and the ML is possessive but gives the MC total freedom to do his own work. Plus sometimes the ML just doesn't have to do anything so he just helps the MC and takes care of him. It's a mutually beneficial relationship, and one that turns 1+1 to more than 2. Honestly, I love this couple so much. The ML gets so shameless when he's with the MC, and the MC puts up with him all the time.

Of course, I have to shout out the supporting characters as well. We get to see so many couples that the MC and ML are good friends with come together, with plenty of gay couples as well. Likely inspired by our low key yet high key couple. The extras are adorable in showing how they act later, though we usually don't get much details on how the gay couples get together. I do find the new emperor being one of them quite entertaining though. Oh right, the MC's younger brother is adorable and super sticky, and he and his cousin (?) are so cute together.

Loved reading this for the plot, the business enterprising, the warring, and the romance. The addition of another transmigrator was an interesting point, though it didn't make too much of a difference in the overall scheme. The gradual unearthing of the ML's countless loyal spies definitely made for interesting reveals. I also appreciated that the MC does tell the ML eventually about his transmigration, since there are plenty of suspicious points ("what's a nervous system??"). Love this, and recommend.

Edit (1/2019) : Just reread this story after quite a long break from LNs, and it's still as good as ever. If you don't like OP MCs, stay away. Also, there are probably 2 big topics in this LN, 1 of which is the action and strategy/fighting which gets quite complicated, and 2 which is romance (lots of it). There are couple of loopholes that I'm still a little confused about like what happened to the Ziwei emperor in the end? Did I miss something the second time around? But w/e, you have to really love the MC and ML's relationship, or else you won't be able to stomach their constant showing love. I also really love the side couples, more than ever. There are a few couples I would have liked to see more fleshed out so that we don't just see them constantly fighting and arguing, but that's fine. Still recommend. <<less

Wow, I'm only 60-odd chapters in and I already find it too badly written to continue. I would add a third star only to show appreciation for the translators and their dedication.

The story is all over the place, riddled with plot holes, and extremely one-sided in MC's favor, with no real sense of struggle or crisis to move the story along. I really wish the author had homed in on more interesting points, like the mystery behind An Ziran's body's condition upon transmigration. Instead...

TBL is one of the unfortunate cases... more>> where the author shows off how smart MC is by making everyone else an idiot. At one point the author even has An Ziran monologuing that his half-sisters are "brainless vases." Characters "scheme" privately by smirking, publicly by verbal confrontation, and "retaliate" by pointing fingers and breaking sh*t like they're 5.

AZR's stepmothers and half-sisters are the favorite victims of the author's "make everyone really stupid so MC and ML can shine" formula:

Spoiler

They frequently forget that he's the man of the household, so it's funny that the author has them go through these dramatic revelations every time AZR reminds them of his control - them gasping with eyes wide, spouting, "I wouldn't dare not believe that you would kick me out!!" (nth time)

Author writes 4th wife Wang Qinglan as a cunning woman, but only to the extent of having the common sense to actually remember that AZR controls her finances and livelihood, and... knowing to throw tantrums with unbreakable furniture (?). Author also makes her stupid at some point by having her persuade AZR to let her hold his infant brother hostage, so - "smart" character setting obviously holds no weight for her.

[collapse]

ML is the sole other smart character, but he's so stupidly invincible that his golden finger breaks any suspension of disbelief:

Spoiler

He owns the dragon whip of the previous emperor, allowing him the power to resist the emperor and punish any official. He can marry whoever, kill whoever, own as much wealth and power as possible without any consequence... Okay, author. Totally makes sense.

[collapse]

An Ziran himself doesn't have much personality as an MC, but I'm hoping it's because he has more opportunities in the 400+ chapters to display something other than a sense of leadership, level-headedness under pressure, and... his vanity (the baby fat on his face disgusts him and the author very briefly mentioned he was handsome in his previous life).

Even though it gets very detailed and expository regarding the political and economic conditions of feudalism, it still feels super shallow and it shows in the author's nonsensical and inconsistent writing.

Spoiler

I don't know why the author keeps emphasizing the low status of businessmen in comparison to literati when there's absolutely no acknowledgment at all of scholarly/cultural accomplishments and contribution, and the one scholar example is AZR's uncle, who... doesn't earn a lot (makes sense if he's spending his time scheming and not working, go figure), desires his brother's family status, and has a history of borrowing money from them. In fact author even said in ch.17 that landlords hold an essential position in the current era so...

Author also never explains the whole setting of ML's grandfather claiming to be a businessman when he magically turns into the emperor's uncle, which makes even less sense that a member of royalty would so easily make a marriage oath for fancying his best buddy's paintings.

[collapse]

The shallow writing unfortunately extends to An Ziran's cleverness and strategic foresight, which actually isn't very amazing. Example, ch. 55:

Spoiler

A farmer's cow collapses and dies on the field due to illness; An Ziran's solution is for him and his wife to downsize their crops and expand the variety to beans and vegetables. But, An Ziran... it's a county full of rice paddies, doesn't take a genius to understand that it takes a completely different kind of soil to plant beans, let alone other types of vegetables that require dry soil. And where the heck are the cattle farmers, since all these guys bought cows that cost a fortune?

[collapse]

Nonsensical writing also includes intelligence gathering:

Spoiler

For some reason AZR gets spies to tell him everything, but people never consider that their info is being leaked to him - like, they always find a way to excuse AZR and give him a pass, and don't take him seriously enough to spy on him regularly for their own designs?

And then you have ch.20.1, where County Magistrate Zhang casually asks around why AZR left for the capital and finds out the marriage oath of the mandarin duck pendants that only AZR and Steward Su know... WTF? How did he just casually get this information when not even the stepmoms and half-sisters knew, let alone the servants? AZR's own sister didn't know anything until after they arrived in the capital when he sat her down for a talk.

[collapse]

That we're only roughly 1/6th into the novel and these are only some of the gaping plot holes is not a bright outlook. <<less

If you want a novel where the main couple seemed to have influenced all the side characters to turn gay or at the very least bisexual, then this is for you. Lol!

Some readers would have been bored with this novel by the later chapters but I just found it just right for me. Especially if you don't want to read the slow progress of how war is fought between countries.

This is actually more of a Transmigration-slash-Kingdom War novel with a side of Romance. If you like to read about war... more>> between Kingdoms and how it was resolved then this is also your novel. Transmigration is the starting poing with our MC and then because of his sister's stupidity we are given the romance plot.

ML is black-bellied to the bone. And it's also how his subordinates run, well except for a chosen few who are used for a more comedic effect. War between Kingdoms is already brewing in the background but it got really ignited by the MC's golden finger. So at the end, where the once weak country of Daya became the top Kingdom because of MC's achievement.

MC on the other hand is really more interested on doing business than what his previous life suggests. Which is actually a little disadvantageous imo, since MC was previously something more dangerous in his first life. Author-san seems to have discarded that and just made it into a footnote. MC's attitude is more "if you're good to me then I'm good to you, if not get out of tge way." He's not the kind of character who really plans and plots for vengeance but more of a he lets the other person dig a pit for themselves. So thats a big plus for me as well. It gets really tiring to read an MC who just faceslaps people willy-nilly.

So all-in-all I guve this 5 stars of approval as it gives me action, intrigue and a bit of romance. As well as cuteness of course. Can't forget the bunbuns in this story. =3 <<less

Not going to say much. This is one of the most memorable danmei I've ever read, since it's so long. Kidding. But It's really a long story with heavy complicated plot. There's bussiness, politic, and war. But It's truly worth it.

There are not much fluffs. Like i've said, the plot's heavy. But it's fine for me, since I love the plot. It won't make you bored at all. Try it if you like complicated story, if you don't but still want to read this, I wish you good luck. But... more>> you'll get addicted anyway. <<less

The style of writing is just not my thing, I just need more details, and it's not giving it to me and brushes things over. The MC is not that smart at all, he seems more intelligent just because everyone else has their IQ rotting in the farm crops somewhere. The story is slow for me, maybe be it gets faster, but I'll pass.

I usually really like these types of novels, but this one was just honestly very boring and slow to me. The situations where the MC shows off his smarts and solves a big dilemma were honestly not that impressive and so I didn’t get any satisfaction from it because it just kind of seemed... dumb? The problems themselves were boring and so were the solutions, so any “progress” the MC made, I just didn’t care :/ The writing was very okay, some parts the author brushed over with just a... more>> sentence or two when I feel like they should have expanded more about the scene and that also contributed to why this story just wasn’t engaging to me. I think there are way better novels with similar tropes to this to read so I won’t be continuing. <<less

So far im liking the couple dynamics between the MC and ML. Everything makes sense to me with how the plot develops and the reason behind the incidents in the story. Its still early in the story so theres probably more in store in terms of the side characters and the plot. Im trusting this one coz I really love LMW which is another work of this author (Yin Ya).

It's a great story. The MC is not dense and dumb for a change. Also he's without any special power and so on. But he's smart, capable, with a good heart. It's your day to day normal human transmigreting into ancient times. The ML so far is perfect. Not to over protective or possessive. He's very good to MC. They're so fluffy together.

I fall in love with chapter one.

Yes, it has a slow pace, the ML doesn't show right away.

Spoiler

Not until ch24

[collapse]

and is more about how MC does his business with the slow building about their relationship. ML's personality is marvelous, and I love how dotting he is with his wang fei.

The smut appears in a few chapters and its consistent on how they are falling in love.

Spoiler

At least the MC because ML is enamored since the beginning

[collapse]

So if you want a light reading with cool characters, this a must.

it's a good story! The MC and ML are kind of over powered, but in a good thing, means they're not omnipotent. It's a whole story consisted of many arcs that Linked one to each other. Every arc are interesting, full of conspiracies, riddles, and many other things. There aren't dog blood drama, or stupid Villains, the IQ of the Villains truly represent their status, so the fight are resolved differently, through violence, battle of wits, and even war. I MTLed this story to the very end the chapter, at... more>> first it felt really painful reading the MTL version after the nicely translated one, but after a few chapters, I can finally grasp the feel and enjoy it. <<less
