My name is Wang Shou Ning and I’m 26 years old this year. Maybe some day in the future you will pass by me on the street, but you have forgotten my name; if that is the case then you can call me a passerby {stranger}.

When you pass by me you might see a handsome man walking right next to me. You will not need to wonder or doubt because yes, he is actually with me; he is my boyfriend.

Hmm, this one is difficult to rate. I enjoyed it, the main character was very self-aware and a bit self-deprecating, and almost pessimistic about everything. The text was humorous in an understated way.

But I'm not a huge fan of characters of this type because it felt like the MC walked through life completely passively with everything happening to him instead of him actively making things happen. He also seemed dissatisfied with his existence and had no friends, but made no move to change anything and was constantly surprised that he... more>> got noticed by other people. There were things that made him very relatable as a person though.

There wasn't a very good or detailed explanation on why he attracted the potential MLs who were from a way higher socio-economic status and ability and it did seem kind of like love at first sight for everyone. We're told that his attractive qualities are that he was "pure" and innocent and shy which are commonly found in all CNovels and essentially what is heavily marketed as the ideal feminine traits that make women attractive to men. (Yes the MC is male but since he's the "bottom" of the relationship, Chinese authors basically write them the same as females anyway.)

But despite the plethora of cliches and wish-fulfillment unrealistic fantasy, there were some good moments and overall the writing attempts to be realistic (ish). The author's notes were quite humorous, almost a bit subversive, so that did make the story better. I'm guessing this novel is geared towards comforting people who feel they live mediocre existences and telling them that they might end up with someone better? IDK. <<less

I cried a fair bit in the middle when MC had pessimistic thoughts. But the result later on, was like sunlight.

I long wanted to read this novel but couldn't find the translated work. Then by chance I got to know that it is available on another platform.

It's a really good short novel.

Romance is good.

... more>> Comedy is also good.

MC is a very likeable character. As per the name of the novel, he is a passerby. Thus his character is designed as such.

ML is also good.

The relationship development is also good. I could feel it- the awkwardness between them at start then gradually getting along with other with the flow.
According to the length of the novel, it's good.

There are also smex scenes. (Not that detailed or explicit)

Totally recommended. <<less
