The Film Emperor’s Daily Live Cooking Broadcast


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

On the Star Network there is a gourmet food broadcast, where all you can see are a pair of hands. However each dish that this broadcast comes out with is earthshakingly delicious. What’s more, the broadcast anchor’s voice is simply perfect!

With the broadcast’s rising popularity, several food programs extended him an olive branch. When the anchor appeared on screen, as they suspected, he is handsome enough to incur the wrath of both men and gods! The fans licked their screens with increasing frenzy, but after licking a while, they discovered…

Fans:…Wait a minute, isn’t this our fatally-ill idol who hasn’t long to live?

Small Gong: Take these damned nutrient solutions and throw them away! And get me that broadcast anchor!

It's was great in the beginning and then and then and theeeen it was the same thing over no development between Ruan Tang and HYC. Live cooking so and that's like 88% of it. It wore even me down and I'm usually a sucker I'll excuse alot if things are moving but things just aren't going anywhere really.

I'll take a moment to say this though the translator is excellent. This review is a reflection of my opinion on the story not the translator. XIIN does great work

the story is very nice to read though I wish that the romance part started at the mid of story so there's more intimate moments between MC and ML.

funnies part ever would be the comments of his fan so hilarious!! The ending was kind of rush to me wish there could be more to further solidate the relationship of the two.

the recipes provided by this book enriched my cooking skills!!! That's a big plus for a foodie like me.

Thanks for the effort, author. But your cooking is watery.

I think I'll never touch anything cooking-related again, since it's a waste of time. Chapter in and chapter out it's all about cooking for 100+ chapters, don't you think it's too much? I do. Maybe ppl who like Chinese cuisine will love this, but at the rubbery taste of chicken wings I retched, since I hate boiled chicken skin. And ppl say they gained weight reading this, give me your sturdy stomachs please.

Dumb contradictions everyone gives a pass:

    • The whole notion of entire cooking to be forgotten. Humanity always tried to preserve and protect the heritage of knowledge. I hardly believe that the knowledge of cooking didn't survive and it bugged me all the time.
    • HOW on earth are they recreating things that have been forgotten? Like give me science please. If you forgot the products and how they look who is responsible for formulating, visual looks etc.
    • The ingredient release. Though it's logical for ppl to not know how to cook, but the long presence of Chef Association and the talks of all those restaurants contradicts the notion of newly released ingredients, which conveniently started to pop-up ceaslessly with MC's arrival. What I'm trying to say is - people are addicted to knowledge and experiments, I don't believe that entire network consists of people who only can consume and by the time MC arrives there would have been people who tried to cook in all ways possible, but happens they don't want to experiment themselves with ingredients that were on the market. This defies our nature. Otherwise entire network is a bunch of ignorant fools and they don't deserve to read about them. Sure thing they should serve as a contrast to MC, but it's just too much. The only "logical" part should be - the food cooked without recipe will taste bad. But what I don't get is why people eat that and it's being sold while it tastes bad.
    • Convenient bs of interstellar that authors try to pull.
    • Monopolization by Chef Association. Pointless and stupid, since there's still nutritient sollutions widely used, so it's the biggest market rival and caring about small anchors is just...
Dumb water:

    • when authors don't know what to write they start to use lots of water. long sentences that describe every action, lots of chat comments that don't change the weather and worked only when there was a real conflict. but in other cases lots of water. and I don't have a disposition on reading something so empty.
Really so-so and tedious. I really wanted promised cuteness and fluff, but was splashed with water instead.

This novel is good and simple. Reading this can be torture to a hungry stomach. T_T

If you want a novel that is all about the food, this is what you are looking for.


this novel adheres to the principle that cooked food can solve all the problems in the world, and in this case its universal😆😆😆

this story is pure food porn so be prepared for growling stomachs and a bit of drool as the author describes dish after dish in each chapter. So much good food, though I, being in the savory faction, don't care much for all the sweet added into the food since he is "a true Southerner"

the comments from the viewers are interesting and fun usually. I have a few small issues

... more>>

I find his meteoric rise a little fast (his viewership is in the 100, 000s by the third broadcast) and the MC is extremely OP for someone who supposedly decided not to be a cook in his past life, but I can suspend my disbelief since his parents were chefs and he cooked for himself all his life. I find it harder to believe that someone whose body was in a coma for five years and who is as weak and skinny as he's supposed to be would have the physical strength needed for cooking some of those foods since he leaves the hospital so soon after waking and he's waving around that knife and flipping the wok so energetically within a day. Woks are heavy. I'm surprised he could even walk without assistance, though this is the future so *shrug*, I'm trying not to let my own medical training get in the way of enjoying the story.

I do like that he hasn't suddenly become a genius actor just because he gained the body of a film emperor but I stopped at ch40 so it's possible that changes in the future. I decided to wait for the translations instead of plowing ahead because of a few things I didn't really get/ understand that I am hoping will be cleared up in the translation.

entertaining story that will leave you with a growling belly and a hunger for some good Chinese food. <<less

The cooking scenes are good at the beginning, since it's a part of the plot, but later it's just pure word padding (boring and waste of time, I'm not here to read cook-book thx)

The plot is so-so, stupid enemies with OP ML that fully supports MC.

Overall, it's just average.

A Chinese food porn story! A bit of drama, a bit of action, a bit of comedy, but a lot of food! Oh and a gradual romance too, one which builds throughout the story. Overall, I would say the story, the characters and the relationships all develop at a natural pace (where besides the futuristic setting, its sorta like slice of life?).

The novel is very good on the onset but it does get boring on the advanced chapters.

Very detailed descriptions of the food the MC makes can really be taxing to reader.

Not enough world building as food details. But it did make me hungry to grab a bowl of white, fluffy, tender rice. Mind you MTL keeps translating tender as rotten sooo. hahaha

... more>>

The author is obviously, painfully Chinese. I really cant get my head around scrambled eggs with chili! Yah... Nope. Bell peppers are more like it. Then we only have steak for western cuisine presented. When's pasta coming around? And I mean the Italian version. And cake Neeeeeds yeast to rise.🤤🤤 No yeast. No yeast 'restored'. No yeast even mentioned in the food prep. yet they already have the rice cooker cake (made popular by the japanese) 😉 the text does describe it as fluffy hence my rant.


Anyhows, albeit all these I did really appreciate the author's perseverance to describe everything in painful detail. everytime.

But overall its a nice pasttime read. Romance is slow btw. haha <<less

MTLd this story up till chapter 83. If you don’t like cooking descriptions this story ain’t for you, srsly. I guess about 80% of this story is MC cooking and reactions, and the plot of this novel takes up the rest 20%, so besides the cooking, which sometimes take aaaages and the romance, this story is quite fast-paced.

It’s basically a modern day Chinese food blogger (who also knows western food) transmigrating into an ex film emperor in interstellar.

... more>>

This film emperor got into an accident 5 years ago and since then has been in a vegetative state. Turns out earth back when our MC transmigrated was basically destroyed and humans had to leave and venture out into space. But since space is already occupied by all kinds of other lifeforms there was a continuous period of wars, and human kind survived on nutrient fluid for a long time. The time when our MC wakes up is just in time when the human empire experiences peace and are trying to reintroduce natural ingredients into the world, since they now have time and as it turns out, only drinking tasteless fluids is detrimental to mental health. But the problem is, while they can genetically regrow those ingredients, they don’t know how to handle them, and in general how to cook. When our MC is released from the hospital he realizes that he’s got no money and since the only thing he knows is cooking, he starts a live broadcast. And gets famous instantly, because he cooks well (and you can smell and taste food over a live broadcast) and he knows how to handle potatoes and fish, which even a cooking organization and a research institution can't figure out how to prepare and use properly....


And here we get to the problems I have with this story.


As you can already tell the MC got a huuuge golden finger (in this story his knowledge), is sth the author likes apparently. This isn’t inherently bad, but the author does barely anything to build up tension, like srsly everything goes perfectly for the MC, nothing goes wrong at all. And no one really confronts him about the source of his knowledge, or just say they don't care, which tbh doesn't make much sense to me. And does anyone srsly believe that even though they can genetically regrow all kinds of ingredients and have entire institutions and cooks as well as researchers testing these out, they can’t figure out that you can eat cucumber raw? And no one at all even dislikes any food MC makes, as soon as they taste his food any slight conflict is resolved... I get that he is an amazing chef, esp for those times, but still.. people have preferences... And even if there is a dangerous or possibly dangerous/bad situation for the MC, you don’t even get anxious because you just know that nothing will go wrong, because everything in this story goes his way, 100%. The MC to me is barely characterized through his love for cooking and being generally a good human being. Can’t say much about the romance since nothing really happened yet (at ~c80), but I hope the author will give our MC at least some reason to get together with ML in this story. But the MC being barely characterized, and there being no real reason for the MC and ML to get together is sth that I found in another story of the author as well, so this might be a problem I have with the author. Although they do it better in this novel.


While I’m criticizing a lot, it’s still a pretty good story and reading it is relatively relaxing :) Well those problem mentioned above are things that still do bother me personally tho. <<less

This is basically the Shokugeki no Soma version of BL novels. Seriously, I read a chapter where our MC is cooking and I suddenly get all motivated to cook and eat the food he is making. I think it's really all in the descriptions of the author.

... more>>

The MC describes the food so well as a broadcaster that I am like one of his fans that all are salivating for a bite.



It's still to early for any real interaction with the MC and ML but lust and gluttony are both seven sins so some action I suspect is sure to follow *wink wink*.

I read this novel completely by mtling. At the beginning, the story is interesting for me. There is a plot (MC's body background, why he was in coma, and there is conflict).

However, after this arc, it couldn't keep my interest. No conflict, no plot. I even skipped chapters. I didn't expect the story to be like this.

The conclusion, good beginning, but a plain middle story and ending.

Buutt.... the translator did a good job!!!

Okay so!!! The story so far? Eh. Bland. Male lead and love interest both are likable but neither have anything particularly interesting or "human" feeling about them.

The cooking aspect is all over the place - honestly they could be ANY kind of live stream since the good parts of the cooking sections are just audience reactions.

There might be a mystery element that COULD get added in future chapters

... more>>

about who tried to kill the body's original owner


But I feel like that's unlikely. It will likely get resolved quickly like everything else in the story.

Why did I rate it so high then? Well. It's bland but it's not bad. It's just a little sweet. Im excited to see the relationship between our leads develop. And while it isn't anything special it's still fun and entertaining.

Not to mention how great the translator is!!! Updates are super often. Translator always does a good job. The author seems to have also had decent writing skills to begin. I enjoy the consistency of it. <<less

Recipe and cooking-laden with a cute and fluffy love weaved in between. So if you're more into cooking rather than deep plot then this story is for you.

I gained a few kilos while reading this, as I always had to have something in my mouth while reading. Every chapter has delicious food descriptions and the plot kinda happens around the food. It's a good novel for foodies or if you want to learn new recipes. However, do have something to eat prepared nearby...

When talk about specific genre such as cooking/food, martial arts, mech, mafia, school, etc., it requires some detailed knowledge to make the plot is moving on right track without being too much nonsense. But, this one, somehow manages to pull it off. [It takes place in years later where common knowledge of cooking is abandoned and lost. So common becomes ultra rare]

The good reasons I stay

    • Years later, means talk about far away future, and support how advanced the civilization compare to now. Staying as the pace of being light-weighted-plot, there's a simple explanation about tech that need to be used, and no crazy-explanation about fashion or furniture as plot-filler or to enhance the beauty of the MC. Let's be real what people in the past, in 90's and now are different and why that kind of style exist at the time.
    • Since it's about food, it needs to be boasted and detailed explanation. To make it easier, by making cooking skill is a lost skill, indeed it is a good move. The best part, MC told reader why he was food blogger than chef. Logically by the situation, I as reader can accept why such a common knowledge makes MC is superior than certified chef in the story.
    • There's a deus ex machina, such as MC has one butler and home (it's still a mystery --- someone gave monthly fund to mc) and he could make lot of money by making one simple cooking video. But soon, it has reason why, which is because preparing and processing ingredients are kind of secret, that the chef organization won't exposed it easily because it costs money on R&D phase and by making it elite, they could cow cashing the rich. Still the money throw in to the R&D phase, so.... and most people doesn't highly regards cooking and food. It's too traditional, time-taking, most taste weird. | so if people give lot of money to MC, it's because in their pov MC is kindly sharing exquisite food and the way to cook them.
Why 4 star

    • MC body is pretty strong to make dough. In chapter one, he was described as similar as skeleton and had deteriorated muscle, without good excercise or any deus ex machina pill, he shouldn't instantly have nearly normal body. He even said he couldn't eat rice yet. Hmm...
    • I still don't know how the romance is built between MC and ML, too little is as bad as too much. I'm still anticipating how well it will brought in here.
    • It's an okay webnovel. No hate-feeling for MC and some characters due to foolishness or any inconsistent contents. It's enjoyable, at least for me.
Overall, I'm still liking this novel
