The Emperor Fights the Harem for Me

Gu Lingyun suddenly transmigrated into a vicious female supporting character in a harem battle novel. She appeared to be a favored concubine, but in reality, she was only cannon fodder. Gu Lingyun, who had read eight hundred harem battle novels in her previous life, was eager to try the harem fight and was preparing to show off her talents. However, she found that the plot seemed a little different.

Being falsely accused of pushing another concubine into the water.
Gu Lingyun hadn’t made any move, and the concubine who fell into the water was thrown into the cold palace.

It was rumored that she had an affair with an imperial physician.
While she was still thinking of countermeasures, the imperial physician was thrown into prison.

Gu Lingyun: …

Xiao Yuheng had acquired a miraculous power since he was a child and could hear other people’s minds. He grew up as a perfunctory and hypocritical person; thus, he thought that his acting ability was already top-notch compared to other people. It was not until he met Gu Lingyun, who was a better actor than him. Gu Lingyun had tears in her eyes and looked very pitiful, but she couldn’t suppress the excitement in her heart, “They actually framed me for drugging the dog emperor. Is the harem battle about to begin? Come on, I’m ready!”

Unexpectedly, Xiao Yuheng smiled slightly and whispered softly, “Ignoring my beloved concubine is really a crime worthy of death.”
The 101st time Gu Lingyun prepared for the harem battle… failed again.

I used to avoid this one because of the cover, but it's actually really good. MC is my favorite kind of MC- a little silly, but with a good heart. ML is more boring, I mostly just like him when he's with MC.

It's a little fast, and author tends to drop plot threads and move on to the next one quickly, but ngl I got so caught up with the pace that I didn't notice most of the time. The good side of that is that there's not enough time... more>> for me to get bored. By the end I felt satisfied, but after a while I realized so much plot was left unresolved, it's like the story ended midway.

I MTLed but I'm waiting for the TLer before I read the extras, I might think of more to add to my review by then. <<less

I'm the translator of this novel so I might be biased, but this novel is a really sweet story without much intrigue. Their love story was so smooth, no big misunderstandings, no infatuated second male/female lead. It's full of humor and sweet moments.

I personally like a cute female protagonist who is not omnipotent and an overpowered male protagonist who can literally destroy the world for the female lead, and this novel really suits my taste hehehehe.

I'll write some of my favorite scenes here.

... more>>

So one day, when the leads weren't in love with each other yet, FL had a hobby to feed the fish in the garden as pastime. But, she fed too much so that many fish were died because of eating too much. The servants didn't dare to tell her, but it somehow reached ML's ears. ML hadn't been in love with her yet, but he only told the servants to replace the dead fish with new ones and ordered them not to let FL know about it. Meanwhile, FL still thought that ML liked other girl and wanted to use her as a shield. I DON'T KNOW BUT I FOUND IT VERY CUTE HAHAHAHA.

One more. So, because FL had a good background and 'was very pampered' by the Emperor, many servants tried to please her. So there was a servant who was in charge of distributing the monthly allowance of concubines in the harem. He tried to please her by giving her many valuable and expensive things that shouldn't have been given to concubine of her level. ML knew about it and got angry, he reprimanded the servant and punished him. FL felt awkward and aggrieved, she thought ML didn't want to give her those things. When ML knew about her thoughts, he literally gave her all of his warehouse. HAHAHAHAHAHA.


So, this novel is basically a light-hearted story about an ordinary girl and a majestic emperor. You should read it if you need some stories to refresh your mind and make you laugh. <<less

Hard to say how it will turn but for now quite entertaining. I was hooked with description but for now emperor wasn't properly introduced. Basically story start from harem selection and Gu Lingyun making it straight to noble consort with her golden finger having praises at every turn... And no it's not some system or unique knowledge from her original world. It's Emperor who just plainly opened for her back door because her father is general, lol. Aiya, nothing changes under moon, but well kudos to her for being calm... more>> and even humorous as she understands that she had no choice but be part of harem no matter what. But well she had year to at least morally prepare herself, as she transmigrated year ago. For now I'm very interested in this story so waiting for chapters. Looks promising. <<less

Had high expectations for this one because the summary was interesting. However author doesn’t know how to incorporate the mind reading abilities well and the harem drama is quite boring so far. By C12, the oriFL is already imprisoned.

FL and ML also has poor chemistry so far.

Very little comedy in a story like this which is sad.

... more>> Might read again once there’s more translations. Translations is 11/10. MTL is readable but due to how boring the story is I’m dropping for now.

I think “My Beloved Concubine Only Wants to Eat Melons” is a funnier and better written story with the same premise. <<less

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice read UNTIL the part where MC fall in love becoming very s*upid.

author looks unsure what to do with the harem? I wasn't satisfied with their resolve. To start of MC is aware that in the novel ML never abolish harem and it seems that author focus on making that the girls would be MC's friends. Which is still a bit of sad but okay.

To further this issue, author introduced a new character who was entered into the harem for political reason. MC is obviously sad, but I feel like author miss the opportunity for MC to realize that this would be how her life is? For a modern person, she digest this information easily, easily getting fooled by "you will be different from them".

Anyway, didn't like how that was handle.

Speaking of this new character, maybe it was author's way to make readers assure she would not do anything silly but they pair her with MC's adopted brother??? What kind of netorare kink sh*t is this.


Also the issue of novel FL was easily resolve... I mean that's nice and all but really, the big dilemna solve like that... <<less

How should I start this? It's a bit boring without the palace intrigues and it's not thrilling without revenges and etc. I complain all the time in the past that it's easy to guess what would happen next but the ML wouldn't take action that's why it leads to conflicts and misunderstanding now that that 'action' is being done is every nooks and turns, I wish for a blood boiling plot and twists. If you want a chill quick read novel but based in an ancient time and palace setting,... more>> then, this is for you. <<less
