The Daily Task of Preventing My Disciple from Turning to the Dark Side


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

As the number one pill alchemist of the immortal world, Mu Chen had always believed that it was because he had single-mindedly focused on concocting pills that led to him to neglect disciplining his disciple. Which in turn, caused his disciple to be led astray by the seduction of devil cultivation, leading to the three realms to fall to disaster. After his rebirth, Mu Chen resolved to properly teach his disciple, give him the very best resources, earnestly love him, carry him close to his heart, teach him by way of example, and don’t let him grow corrupt.

Sure enough, his disciple became more and more “intimate”. Every day his disciple even crawled into his bed, rubbing against his chest and clinging to his thigh. It was just that his expression isn’t exactly quite right……

I debated whether or not I should write this, but I figured I should at least offer a warning to those who, like me, may feel really cheated and angry over the future developments in this novel.

This starts off quite cute and fluffy at the beginning. There's a lot of humorous interactions, though from early on, you can tell that ML's very yandere. He'll only get worse.

On the other hand, MC is likable, and honestly, very pitiful as well. His only wish was to properly raise his disciple to be... more>> good now that he was given this 2nd chance, but from the very beginning, that was an impossible dream. He deserves someone much better than ML.

Below are spoilers for why this is tagged with rape and why I absolutely despise ML:


MC gets drugged w/ an aphrodisiac during a fight while ML's in the middle of retrieving the sword he used in his previous life. MC then gets news that ML might be in trouble, so ignoring the fact that he's poisoned and that rushing back would agitate his poison more, MC still selflessly flies to where ML is as fast as he can.

MC helps ML from descending into madness, and ML returns to his senses. I have to stress this: ML is 100% within his right mind at this point. MC then asks ML for the panacea antidote MC gave him before, and what does ML do?

ML refuses, and proceeds to rape MC instead.

And that's not even the worst part. After MC wakes up, he realizes that while he was compromised, not only did ML rape him again and again, but ML also forced him into signing a death marriage contract. The contract can't be altered, can't be erased, and all of its terms were completely dictated by ML alone.

I don't know what you guys consider a fluffy romance, but this is furthest thing away from that for me. To be honest, the kinds of methods ML was using before this to get MC to agree to be with him were already straight up emotional manipulation/abuse. And then literally a day after MC (reluctantly) agrees to be with him, ML rapes MC like the scumbag that he is.

True love? Yeah, right.

All I can see from their "romance" 2/3 of the way through this novel is that ML has zero respect for MC, doesn't care at all about MC's feelings, and chose his own s*xual gratification over MC's well-being.

I can't remember a single instance in which ML chose MC over himself. All of his "doting" is founded on the basis that it doesn't inconvenience or go against his personal goals/desires. Not once has he sacrificed anything for MC, and even his "sacrifice" last life was b/c he knew he could go back in time and reset everything, which makes it not a sacrifice at all. ML doesn't treat MC like a lover; ML treats MC like a favored toy.

Forcing MC into a permanent death pact completely against his will, is not love. Threatening to destroy the world unless MC always stays by his side, is not love. Kidnapping the only relative on MC's mother's side who cares about MC and never allowing them to meet again out of petty and completely unfounded jealousy, is not love.

That's just some of what ML has done, and it finally culminated into MC getting raped and forced into a permanent bond that's not much different from those slave collars you often see in fantasy isekai. Except this one can't be removed, ever. MC now literally has no other option but to stay forever w/ ML. No autonomy, no choice, no respect.

Some people might like this kind of abusive relationship. I don't. Some might even argue that it gets better in the last 1/3. But to me, a "romance" that's founded on forced coercion, blackmail, and rape is just a Stockholm Syndrome tragedy. ML is irredeemable as far as I'm concerned, and I regret reading this so much.


The only reason I didn't give this a 1 star rating is that the beginning was enjoyable, and it really was quite cute. Too bad that couldn't last. <<less

This is very unique and brilliant. A must read masterpiece that would make you stare at the screen lamenting the spares chapter carelessly dangling in front of you.

The story as yet to reveal its main course but it is already promising good stuff.

Even the characters are much satisfactory.

... more>> So far this is how far I have gone through the available translation (😭 I wish I could learn Chinese faster enough to read the raws) :

Both the two protagonist went back a hundred years from their death.

It is pretty tragic how they were tricked by the sect people.

Mu Chen was a genius in his sect (totally didnt pay attention to any mention of the sect name) and he was pretty obsessed with alchemy to the point of being shut in his palace isolated from the sect happenings so he was unaware of the other people's ill intention towards him coupled with his seemingly indifferent cold exterior he was easily misunderstood and nobody bothered to get close to him.

His discipline Gu Yunjue (i dont know if I got it right) was the only one close to him and he was the one that reversed time for them to go back together. He had a bad childhood. His mother would abuse him and his father that did not care about them had ten sons and threw him to the sect. His mother killed by his father. He only cared of his master Mu Chen even to the end when he betrayed the sect and became the Demon King. He still came back to Mu Chen who was on the brink of death caused by the sect and he tried to save him.

I wish for more updates to come in the future!😁 <<less

I love the plot and the story itself is intriguing and fun! Hehehe a black belly disciple who deceives his master so that he alone could have all of his shizun's affection. I think that it's one of the best yaoi that I've read so far! The thing that I love so much is that the master which should be the uke is not the clumsy and adorable type but rather the "I am cold but with a warm heart" type.

And he could also fight and defend himself. It has... more>> so much potential. Please continue translating this work. &Lt;3 <<less

OMG I CANNOT!! >///<

I read this for a second time already, but d*mn Gu Yunjue is still so cute whenever Mu Chen is around. I also got this tingling laughter when I realized that Mu Chen didn't even know that his little disciple was already black and that Gu Yunjue was only cute to him.

I recommend this novel so much.. Come on, Read it. Go ahead, no need to be shy... We're all fujoushi/fudanshi here (or still converting (๑‾̀◡‾́) σ»)

The only thing I don't like here is the long duration of updating. Please I'm a desperate reader here!! I also can't read chinese (-_-")

Read this in Chinese a while back and I am so glad someone decided to translate this is English.

A really heart warming yet cute story about the disciple and master. Disciple is a little devil and the master is a little slow-cute. Interactions between them are fun to read. Pace is a little slow, but not too bad.

Highly recommended!

Oh so delicious exciting! I cannot wait til our young and aggressive seme, Gu Yunjue, pushes down our lovely and innocent uke, Mu Chen! It's so titillating how possessive our reborn Gu Yunjue is with his master. I am so looking forward to the updates.

There aren't enough chapters for me to write a full review, so I'll update this again later on. It may be a while since the translator changed and they're starting the translation over again from scratch.


Alchemist Mu Chen's disciple became a devil and the enemy of the world. Mu Chen is blamed for teaching him poorly and killed, only to see his estranged disciple sacrificing himself in an attempt to save his life... and then Mu Chen is transported back in time to his younger self. He takes in his... more>> disciple again and is determined to raise him properly in this lifetime... Little does he know that his disciple has brought back memories of the future as well.


So far, this series hasn't had a very strong start -- not bad, but nothing that really captures your attention. The writing style could be more exciting. It's like there's supposed to be some sort of emotion, but I'm just not picking up on it. I was also hoping that the tone of the series would either be light-hearted and comedic, or very emotional, but it doesn't seem to be able to make up its mind and it's sort of in the bland middle.

I am hesitant to judge the personalities of the main characters. The main character, Mu Chen, is cold and tactless despite his decades of experience. I think he's supposed to be "lovably dense, " but so far I'm baffled by how he isn't more subtle with his attempts to change the future. His disciple is just yandere (and that's it).

For now, 3 stars. I'll review this again when more chapters are released. <<less

Loving it so far. I am weak to very possessive and obsessive ML. MC has a very adorable and likeable personality, he's reliable and strong too. You'll love him. And ML such a badass haha.

Sister upstairs who gave this novel 2 star, you almost deceived me with your review ah! >.<

Luckily I already read some of the translated ch so I decided to MTL this novel. Well it's true that the relationship between MC and ML is somewhat forced in the beginning. I expect nothing less from a Yandere character. But hey, it's not that bad, trust me. ML still respect and cherish MC y'know. And MC loves him too, he's a tsundere by nature so.... yeah... their love is kinda awkward. Some ppl... more>> like sister upstairs might think that this kind of relationship is toxic and unhealthy. And I know this novel is not for everyone. But oh well... all's well that ends well~ for me I have no complain hahaha.

Tbh it's quite hard to mtl this novel. I think I missed lots of details, and I don't really like the ending bcs I think it could be more. Don't worry it's a HE.

Overall it's a cute read. Not extremely good nor really bad. <<less

Way too amusing! Mu Chen is way to adorable, even as a cold person with power to back up his position, since the perspectives change from him to his disciple, you can tell he is such a dear and kind man! Just to see more of our dear uke master, this is super worth it! The translation is good, few errors, nice to read and will make you to never want to stop
