The Legitimate Daughter Doesn’t Care!


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

There was a big scandal in the Mu family.

The real daughter of the Mu family was switched by the nanny since she was a child. The Mu family didn’t bring her back from countryside until 17 years later!

After the true daughter returned – There was no affection, only sympathy.

The Mu family parents asked her, “We have a deep relationship with Yaoyao. We can’t let her lose face. We can only announce you as an adopted daughter to the outside world. You won’t blame us, right?”

Her fiancée also said: “My fiancée can only be Yaoyao! Get out of here country bumpkin.”

The attitude of her older brother Mu Qingyi was even more complicated.

Yet despite all that, the real daughter, Xu Xinduo, said indifferently, “It doesn’t matter.”


From a young age Xu Xinduo could swap bodies with a certain teenager. That teenager would always exclaim in an annoyed tone, “Let’s switch bodies, I just don’t feel like taking piano lessons.

Xu Xinduo helped the teenager to win various trophies, become a top student and honed his noble temperament and talent after taking over his body.


At a banquet, everyone in the Mu family watched as a rich young master strode towards Xu Xinduo and said, “Be my girlfriend, although you are from a small family… you are very beautiful.”

With a smile Xu Xinduo replied, “I’m starting to miss my parents already.”

Such a quick change of attitude?!

The romantic story of the indifferent real daughter x a filthy rich despotic young master

Note: Here “switching bodies” means swapping of souls. It’s temporary and doesn’t involve any physical changes.

I'm surprised I haven't wrote a review yet since it's been a while since I started reading this.

Right of the bat, the chemistry between the MC and ML is amazing. They are so in sync and there's no frustrating misunderstanding because they are both straightforward. The concept of the novel is nothing new but it's the interaction between the two leads coupled with the people around them (from the classmates, to the family, staff, etc) that makes this a worthy read.

It's an okay read, a typical brilliant step daughter pops up in family to humiliate everyone kinda story mixed with the plot of the movie 'your name'.

As usual for face slapping power fantasy, suffers from tendencies to have uninteresting antagonists behaving in nonsensical manner just so they can be brought down. Main characters and their side characters have pretty witty dialogue and interactions, but the FL's I can solve any problem because I'm intellectually and physically peerless until plot requires me to be weak and ML's I can solve any... more>> problem by being handsome and being a billionaire is a pretty overused and somewhat lazy theme. FL's thought process flip flopping constantly between I'm just using my real fam for the cash so idgaf about them, to why are everyone in my family being a jerk when the country girl they picked up is being low key rude boohoo behaviour is quite puzzling.

In summary, decently well written and witty face slapping power fantasy with a few fresh twist and the other parts being largely the same old, most glaringly lazy uninspiring 'villains' that are bad just for the sake of being a character to slap. <<less

It's honestly really unfair that even though they're both in each other's bodies, only the ML is able to harvest the glory because of the FL's efforts when she is in his body. The FL is just mediocre in her life because the ML manages to mess up one way or another. Yes, he cares about her and takes her place when her body is in pain and menstruating because she has a very weak body, but he should also work hard while he is in her body! He always... more>> gets into fights in her body more than his own... She deserves the recognition he is getting with the awards in piano and whatnot. It's just very unfair that she is only known for being beautiful. She should be able to show her talents and intellect that she uses for the ML's glory in her own body. The fact that the story does not give her the chance to do that or give her the recognition she deserves puts me off. <<less

ML is so heroic he switched bodies with MC because he knows MC has severe pain every time her monthly aunt comes. Such a cute child. (ʃƪ^3^)

I rarely read school romance cause it makes me feel juveniles but this story is funny enough and sweet enough to entertain me. MC is such an overbearing president and ML is really a cute tsundere obedient cat. Lol. More than ML, I feel MC fits the character of overbearing president better than ML.

Except the magical thing between MC and ML, I think... more>> the novel was very grounded. There's no s*upid coupley misunderstanding fueled conflict and much of the conflicts comes from familial interest and a scramble of benefits. And they are resolved in a logical and straightforward way.

All in all it was a fantasical modern romance with a touch of realism. I quite recommend this novel. I hope the translator will keep working on this project. <<less

"I don't care" - the story

I'm the type that gets affected by the character's mood and the constant repetition of "I don't care" makes me really not care about the story... it's tiring to read all these random generic idiot "enemies (cannon fooders) " buzzing around MC, I simply cannot care anymore =_=

This is definitely a good novel. Unlike other novels, MC is not too emotional about her new family. She remains nonchalant most of the times but she is not emotionless.

Cool story ❤

MC is cool but sensitive while ML is the sweet bad boy type

... more>>

Characters are quite likeable. Though I get frustrated at the part where MC kept denying ML's low key courting at first. Though I get it. MC is inlove with ML long before ML realizes his feeling, which makes things seems like its too good to be true and just when MC decided to give up on her feelings with ML.

MC is cool indifferent type but soft hearted and sensitive. I just felt suffocation when she was still in the Mu's Home. It felt so sad that she was treated like that.

ML is just soo sweet and matching with the cool rich bad boy image can just make my heart.

The grandma and ML's mom, have a feeling that there was something different between the MC and ML when they switch. So when they finally met each counterpart, they were able to recognize them and accept them as their own grandson/daughter.

Mu Dad and Fake Daughter's Fiance are just terrible scum men.

MC's Mom is very weak minded. But I was glad to see her finally put up a fight and divorced her husband. I somehow feel that she wants to treat each of the 3 children with love and care but she dont know how. She was incompetent and weak. But in the end made a move stood up on her own for her children.

MC's brother, I just felt sad for him. He's just 16-17, and he had to be stuck between the guilt for how the family decided to treat the MC, or the rest of the Family's collective decision to lie. He flew abroad because he didnt want to be burden with the lie. He tried, in his own awkward way, to get along and care for MC (i mean shes his twin). But he can only do so much. It was funny how he seems like very cool, but it was not known to many how he cant do alot of things that MC CAN do and he felt depressed.

I also felt sad about the friend of the MC's brother. His mother seems to be suffering from Munchausen by proxy and he s having a really hard time. His bro who has an originally cheerful personality just snaps and commited suicide.

First things first, the summary is a bit misleading. Instead of "I'm starting to miss my parents already.", it's more of a "I do miss my mother and father-in-law." (The FL answers the ML POSITIVELY). To make it clear, this exchange happens almost at the last few chapters, but the real romance happens around the middle of the story.

... more>>

I don't know if the translator used MTL, or didn't finish the novel before translating the summary, but in the story the FL basically said "yes" to dating the ML and the ML actually says the "Be my girlfriend, although you are from a small family" in a teasing and joking way - because the FL already kinda? Promised to date the ML before that. (So the ML actually isnt such a big dick)


I scrolled past this novel at least 5 times because of I thought it was a "marriage before love" type of romance due to the summary but its not.

I read the Chinese untranslated version. I usually don't give 5 stars, but considering how the author said that this novel doesn't have any logic and how crappy some Chinese romamce/drama novels are, this did a really good job.

Although the FL seems OP, half of it is because she thinks carefully about what she's good at and what competitions she could get 1st place in.

She's not good at Go (A chess of some kind) so she thinks carefully about whether joining the competition would let her earn money or lose money (the prize money earned from the competition and the money it cost to take classes) . Not related, but she lost to some guy at Go whose name I only remember as laughing Onii-san since his name kinda sounds like a laugh and the FL nicknamed him that too.

I do think it's a pretty Lame excuse for why she's OP but the author made it make a lot of sense so it's fine.

The author didn't make them perfect, like how the ML isn't good at Chinese comprehension and writing and has bad grades in Language Arts, unlike other Chinese novel MLs. He's considerably childish and learns how to protect the FL and not trample all over her dignity (?) OVERTIME instead of Perfect ML™ right off the bat.

Basically, the author made the whole Bodyswap thing actually work WELL and it made out for a nice romance, they just officially start dating a little late, that's all I'm not satisfied about. Sorry for making you read this long review and sorry for the bad English. <<less

Believe it or not, this novel is like the upgraded version of Gossip Girl. Yes, that serial tv one.

I never thought I'd be able to enjoy a 2nd gen conglomerates high school drama, but this is surprisingly one of the most well-written novels in its genre. We got all the cliched elements in modern CN drama--2nd gen riches, entertainment works, swapped children, and supernatural freaky friday body swap, yet it works!

The character development is on point. There is no 2D characters in here. Even the side characters have enough depth... more>> to make them interesting with clear well rounded development.

On the other hand, the sentence structures are quite hard to read. I am quite fluent in Chinese and read both the raw version and mtl, but seriously it's quite jumbled up. You'd know how well written a novel is by their mtls' structure, and this one is quite bad. Don't blame the translators, even the raws are jumbled up. I bet the one's translating this is having a hard time.

But overall, the plotline's interesting and it got me hooked til the end. It's waaaay better than 90210 or Gossip Girl, if you're into that kind of genre. I personally would never understand, since I'm poor af, but hey, a great read nonetheless. <<less

So I just started reading this, and I have to say that I really like the dynamic between the MC and ML! :P Nothing romantic yet of course, but they have obviously come to rely on each other and probably have a soft spot for the other due to their circumstances.

Waiting for more!~

This story is quite good and I want to give 5 stars, but some aspects in this story disappoint me a lot.

... more>>

I feel so bad to see the ML got praised for all the efforts that MC did when she is in the ML body. Like one of the reviewer said, it feels like "wife is seen but not heard". I hope whenever ML is in MC body, he doesn't only help to endure pain, but also help MC to gain glory.


Another aspects,


it is also disappointing to see the Mu family attitude in handling the problem. They can handle it better, but they don't. I can't bring myself to hate the female main villain because she is also the victim of what happens in the past.


Overall this story is still enjoyable and nice to read if you are looking for a story to kill time. <<less

The shining star of the novel is the male lead. He goes through great character growth and is just such a sweetheart. T

My only complaint is that the female leas is too stoic and she maintains that way for most of the novel. But it did lead to my favorite moments where the author allows her to be more vulnerable. She does have feelings and concerns about everyone around her, she just deals with it differently.

I can't blame any character in the novel other than ... more>>

the dad. Even the adopted sister evoked pity from me.


I think the thing to really focus on in the story are the relationships between the leads and everyone around them (family, classmates, each other). No one is too unreasonable in their conduct it makes the story more likeable.


I especially loved the fiance's family's response to finding out about the identities of the daughters. They were most upset at the family for not trusting enough in their friendship that they felt the need to lie about it and mistreat their real daughter. They broke the ties because they realized the dad was just a bad person, not because of financial/political reasons.

Very sweet story with very human characters.

No one is 2 dimensional, for example, MC is most of the time seen as the typical cold & uncaring person but in reality she IS a sensible person. Not like those stereotypical WN MC who are acting cold and mighty, super cruel to their enemies but very loyal to their friends, blablabla.

----- Small spoiler incoming on MC & ML personalities, no spoiler on the actual plot -----

She is truly a human teenage girl (okay she's a bit cheated given how talented she is... more>> in everything but still) who went through many difficulties that made her tougher than a typical teenager but who, in the end, still longs for the love of a caring family. She pretends she doesn't care but she does and that's human ! It doesn't make her less awesome, indeed, it's quite the contrary, contrarily to the usual emotionless FLs, she doesn't owe her success to being a sociopath, she's struggles as a normal human being and succeeds because she's strong.

Same for our ML, he's so refreshing compared to the typical overbearing ML in other novels. He does start of as a little bit of a stereotype but learns a lot along the way and in particular, he learns about the importance of letting the MC fight her own fights. It's very pleasing to see him go from an ignorant and a bit overbearing teenage boy who thinks he can just solve all of MCs problems with money to a caring young adult, aware of his feelings and willing to give to MC all the support AND freedom she needs.

Now small spoiler on some of my favorite moments:


I loved how both MC's grandma & ML's mom recognized them right away through their little habits like touching your nose when you're embarrassed or addiction to garlic. How realistic it was for them to see the difference when their 7 year old would change personality and finally, how nice it was for both of them to accept the other kid as theirs too. Many other author would've taken that as an opportunity to create unnecessary angst when really, it was the best opportunity for a heart warming moment.

Second favorite, ML's realization of his romantic feelings and decision to pursue MC when he realizes it's not mutual (really it was but she gave up on him because this dumb*ss was being way too dense for way too long and kept saying how there's no way for anything between them). I was afraid he'd give up and there'd be never ending misunderstanding, angst and jealousy inducing situations to finally pull them together. Very happy again that the author didn't take the easy/stereotypical route and instead had her ML mature so much, I'm so proud of him.

Finally, as kind of a sidenote, I don't now if the author has personal experience with very bad period cramps and endometriosis but I appreciated the way it was talked about. The subject of periods is rarely seen apart from in some rare cases in a comical way and well I think that for every women who suffer a lot for a week every month, it's nice to have a realistic representation.

Its very refreshing to have teenagers that act teenager. The MC is cold on the inside but she's still an innocent girl on the inside. The ML maybe from a super rich family and seems OP, but he's also super childish.

This novel also dives in a little into mental health and characters are actually dimensional. I really love the relationships that form around the MC.

And unlike some novels that throw in some supernatural ability in the beginning only to become a useless plot device, the author uses the body switching... more>> pretty well.

And lastly, the MC × ML are SO CUTE! They are literally the cutest little couple ever. There every interaction makes it feel like I'm eating dog food!

100% recommend to everyone <<less

I put off reading this for a very long time and now I regret not reading it sooner. It's very good! I'm really enjoying how she's not scrambling for their approval or acceptance or name. She has her own goals and isn't willing to play their games when she knows they don't give a damn about her.

I'm finding this story really enjoyable, but it's in dire need of editing. It's a bit confusing because of this, but otherwise it's a great story.

The characters act in a way that lines up with their characters. Although, after reading so many of these types of novels, I start to wonder if this treatment towards those who grew up on the countryside a bit exaggerated...

But still, I love how the MC is the more overbearing one while the ML is just a spoiled, lazy, but good guy.

This is a feels good novel. I like how the male lead tries to understand the FL. I’ve read up to ch 50 via MT, but I’ll still read the translated ver here :). The switching of bodies did not bother me although at first, I thought it would, probably because they rarely switch in the present. The male lead is a typical male like in other novels; he dotes on the FL sometimes he’s overbearing. However, what’s good is that when the FL or some character tells him off,... more>> he does consider their opinion. He knows when to let the FL do her thing and tries to understand her situation and desires. They both do not know how to express themselves romantically (at first) but their actions and words really show that they care for each other. The leads are probably OP or too skilled and talented, especially the female lead. But idk, I was still okay with it. I mean, if you have the resources/wealth Tong Yan has, you can enrol in many classes and learn many skills and may also develop many talents so it is not that unrealistic for a person of his social class to achieve these. :) <<less

This is such a good novel! Every characters are likeable and relatable.

FL is a strong girl. One of the reason is because she lived in both poor & rich environment, but at the same time, trying her hard for ML.

Her real family is such a jerk to her. I'm glad that towards the end, her mother & brother changed. Even though the father is still a scum till the end, I think it makes the story more realistic than letting everyone repent.

My most favourite character would be Lou Xu, FL's... more>> bestfriend (don't actually remember her name lol). She's such a funny girl who likes people's beautiful looks and even rank them ??

Second best character would be ML, I guess. Man, I really want a dogman ?? Since ML can swap his body with FL's, he knew the struggles the FL faced. He even asked to change body with her whenever if the weather is too cold, when FL is having a severe period pain, or even when the FL wants to eat ice cream! So doted! And it's funny when ML is scared whenever the FL is angry when he's too sticky ?

There are some loopholes & somewhere that needs to be elaborate, but overall, the story itself is good. <<less

At first, the title and body swapping tag made me hesitate to read this but I was wrong! This is a gem. I don't usually write comments and reviews but ignore the bad reviews. This novel is worth to try. The story is different from usual CNs and it's very refreshing especially when both of the leads are balanced not like the usual ML is the dominant one. Both of them are adjusting with each other. Just try it!
