The Rebirth of Han Yuxi


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

At home, she was invisible; after marriage, she was a decorative vase; in the end, a sea of flames buried her, and not even her corpse remained. This is the portrait of Han Yuxi’s previous lifetime.

Given a chance at rebirth, she strives to improve herself, wishing only to no longer serve as a foil or a pretty face. Then, she will seek out an exemplary husband and live a life of peace and prosperity. Alas, things turn out contrary to her wishes—she marries a man who bears a blood feud and hatred as deep as the sea.

She turns the world upside-down, but her road to happiness is strewn with setbacks and the sweetness that comes after bitterness.

So far it's actually really good. This isn't a novel where the MC is overpowered and gets everything she wants. MC also doesn't get rid of her enemies the way these usual old China dynasty stories go. She doesn't just wake up one day and know everything. She works hard for what she wants and everyday she works for it.

The stories is detailed in how she has been working hard since she was five years old. It's really good, I recommend it.

This is one of my absolutely favorite rebirth story. It covers her childhood through adulthood and her children. The first part of her novel covers her rebirth and childhood from the age of 4? I love watching her grow. There's no cheat, just hard work. She works very very hard to overcome her deficiencies from the previous life. She does use her knowledge of future events, but the novel also shows you how that knowledge is not everything. Knowledge alone will not improve your life.

The novel is very long... more>> at over 1600 chapters, but the story covers a lot of ground. It's a well rounded world, full of characters, and events.

I am sharing my edited MTL version on blogger @ roakemtl. It's by no means perfect, but easier to read than just plain MTL. I'm doing this because I LOVE this story that much. I will also share my other edited mtls when I have more time. <<less

This novel is long! But it was a worthwhile read. I personally think the alternative title "The Record of the Di Daughter's Rebirth" describes the plot better. The story isn't just about a woman's personal rebirth story but it also details the historical record of the rise of a dynasty. The background depiction is very realistic.

The narration starts when the MC was three or four, showing her childhood struggle and education as an unflavored official's daughter, to assassination, to imperial decreed marriage and exiled to the boarder, her and her husband's rebellion against the corrupted government, challenging society rules by taking care of governmental affairs despite being a female, being labeled as a shrew by refusing to accept concubines for her husband, raising and educating children, becoming empress and establishing a new dynasty, raising status of women (unfortunately not by much), watching the younger generations raise their own children then finally her death at the age of ~90.

There are a lot of major side characters. The MC and ML together have six kids, two girls and four boys (three of them are triplets!), each with distinct personality. These kids later got married then have their own kids and grand kids. I lost track of their population by the third generation. Adding in all the major families in the capital and Yu City, there are more than a hundred side characters by the end of the novel!

But that doesn't prevent me from getting attached to the major ones like the MC's immediate family after almost 2000 chapters together. I should have stopped before the long extras, which was at least 500 chapters. Extras are meant to be fulfilling! But here, it's so sad! MC and ML just grows older and older, eventually passing away one by one. What was even sadder was that there were foreshadowing that their dynasty wasn't going to last. When they died, all their kids and their families aren't picture perfect either. They each have problems.

One of the major points being hammered out throughout is the changing world and human personality. &Gt;80% of the characters being introduced in details started out as fairly good but as you keep reading, they ended up doing something unacceptable. Everyone, including the MC, has flaws, especially the children. The MC had to clean up after them a lot of them even after they grow up, especially Yun QiXuan, their third son. That guy has fish eyes and falls for all kind of beauty traps. Many of their daughter-in-laws and granddaughter-in-laws start out as kind but turned to villains! Putting personal interests before family, forcing concubines on their sons, adding pressure on their own daughter-in-laws to have kids! One of the most regrettable things is that despite the MC and ML being monogamous, two of their sons have concubines. One of them was the succeeding emperor with 18 concubines, which as expected led to siblings of different mothers killing each other. Anyway, asides from some parts in the extras, the overall novel was very satisfying overall. Definitely recommended.

The plot is very satisfying. As a rebirth novel, it's some exagerrating. But it made you love female lead so much. The villains are not some extra stupid except kings and her father. Well but as far as I've read, there's not so much villains. The female lead went step by step. Every achievement is worth it. Their love story is not love at first sight. But it's well written.

I can't put down this novel as I want to know what will happen next. I gussed from the start that male lead is Yun Qing. But not surely. It took a long time to their meeting (although there're scenes in childhood; it's not some important) . The female lead growth is what I like most. The female lead start from zero.

That's not all I want to say. There's so much more. But I can't write the review really well. I can assure that this novel is worth your time.

I love this novel but the problem with this novel is that there are too many filler chapters, too many details in each chapters and there are lots of characters to remember. The MC is a beauty but not so beautiful that everyone would want a piece of her. She is smart, not just describe as smart by the author like many other MCs but keep making stupid choices. This MC is actually smart as in always think about the big picture and not revengeful. Even though she is smart... more>> and powerful, she also respects and loves her husband, in return her husband also respects and loves her. She really knows when to advance when to retreat. A very good politician. Though the ML is a powerful general but he is not without any shortcoming like many other "perfect MLs". He has good martial arts, loyal, righteous but he isnt flexible nor he is as smart and cunning as the MC. Both of them understand their shortcomings and realized it from the early days of their marriage, that without each other they couldnt protect their family nor

become the founding Emperor / empress of their dynasty

They tried to raise their children according to each of the children personality and tried not to coddle them especially the MC. Though they spoiled the 2nd girl a bit much than the others because

she born premature

They actually act like a married couple and tried to communicate with each other. There arent many misunderstanding and the ML is not a leecher but he isn't a saint either.

There is this one incidence in which the ML met his former paramour in his past live when he tried to find a music teacher for his 2nd daughter then let this beauty stayed on his residence because he felt that her face was very familiar to him then kept dreaming about her. Her music also could calm him (he used to have insomnia) and I suspect if his first daughter didnt rush to find her father, there would be an accident, afterall this paramour was a very beautiful girl with dignified and talented nature which is the type that ML likes. Then the girl got drugged by her maid, feel hot and the likes when she was playing music to the ML but fortunately his daughter came. Of course he called a doctor before his daughter came, but who knew how many accidents would happen in the future and who knew when the ML selfguard would finally slip out ? But because of this incidence, the ML realized how careless he was and how important his wife and children to him and had to crawl hard to get MC forgiveness. Then he remembered his past live and treated the MC better than ever.

I suggest that you guys only read until the ML/MC

retired or even earlier when they finally become the rulers

Because after that, it fills with filler chapters much more than ever. Then skip it until the few last chapters when ML died then MC if you guys like this sort of separation story.

I also couldnt understand why their first son had so many concubines when his mom raised him as a feminist and he was very steady when he grew up. His mom even guided his empress how to treat him as husband first before as the emperor which is what he wanted. Of course his sons then started killing each other and finally had to make his grandson as his heir, even then it was his mom who help him to choose a heir.


P.s. I MTLed this novel and english is my third languange so I m sorry in advance if there are too many grammatical eror on my review. <<less

I took 1 star off because I got bored halfway. There are too many stories and details to tell. Too many tensions without enough filler/release/fluff.

Despite all of this I enjoy this because it is goodly written and greatly translated. MC is actually very realistic. The characters are relatable with their backstory and motives. So if you want escapism (which what I looked in this kind of novel) you won't find it.

My gripes about this novels:

1. Everyone and their mother is out to get MC. Figuratively and literally speaking. It gets... more>> tiring after a while since this is the case everywhere she goes. Even when she's far away people heard what she did, thought she's crafty/sly, and she needs to be killed. Repeat ad infinitum.

2. Face slapping is not satisfying. The high point of reincarnation novel is usually how MC face slap and turn her life for the better. I appreciate her laying low while quietly making up and not taking other's resources. But for her every progress there is like one more people added that want to kill her.


she is not the only one reincarnated. This one is even more atrocious since she took all future resources. She realized MC is a reincarnator too so she tried to kill MC. She is actually like a parody of other reincarnation MC. Yeah author, I see what u did there


It's still worth the read despite my complainings :p <<less

I feel that since novel is newly translated, there aren’t many reviews yet - but this definitely deserves five stars! I’ve read Princess Wei Yang, and this is comparable, but different in its unique way. I love the translating that Xin-Shou is doing. All explanations are provided, and the English is clear to read.

My only complaint is that I want more chapters!!! We’re only at c86, but there are 1600+ chps?! I honestly love the main character and her straightforward and clever character. Ahh!! I want more! Thank you Xin-Shou!... more>> To you all, give it a try! You won’t regret it 😊 <<less

Ok, I will admit that I'm not used to do reviews (even for the novels that I really like), but this time I just fell that I need to.

Yuxi reborn, but it doesn't transform her into some incredible genius. She takes time to control her emotions, she still have anger about the ones who makes her suffer.

This is not a story about how she changes and makes everyone like her. This is a story that show a really real life perspective of the Ancient Times.

You will suffer reading? Of course.... more>> You will wish that just Yuxi start the *Overpower Reborn mood*? Yes, you will. But the fact that it never happens, make this story one of the best.

I wish that you will give it a chance.

(Sorry about my horrify English... 😅) <<less

Why I love this novel so far is because

- smart and hard working MC

- MC has her own weaknesses and strengths which are rationally explained

... more>> - she ACTUALLY grows as the story progressed.. She was naive and ignorant in her previous life but after this rebirth, she realise her own weakness, accepts them and fix what need to be fixed.

- MC doesn't have any superpowers nor OP skills but she works hard in order to survive and earn her rightful place

- she doesn't take action for no reason and know how to act and punish accordingly.. Iow, she actually use her brains

- Last but not least, AN ACTUAL SISTERHOOD!

Basically this is like a rebirth of a cannon fodder who does not just waste her second life for revenge. <<less

I really am enjoying this novel so far. It's quite different from those I have read previously. Their concepts don't differ but the details are refreshing. The MC is not all-knowing or incredibly talented due to past experience from previous life. She learned many things after reincarnating but she still makes mistakes, which makes sense due to her not having the experience of going through the harem of the palace like other novels.

Another refreshing detail is how the beloved daughter that usually appears in these types of novels does not... more>> hold evil intentions. Usually, the most beautiful and talented daughter of the household would be arrogant or two-faced, leading to MC surpassing them. However, the beloved daughter in this novel is not arrogant. She is talented in many aspects to the point MC can not surpass her despite her two lives. But the MC shows something different rather than the endless talents other reincarnation MCs have - perseverance and determination. While others do obviously endure and are determined, this MC truly shows it by constantly working hard even if she can only be equal to the beloved daughter.

All in all, this novel brings me great joy. <<less

What I really like about this novel is that the main character is not an all knowing Goddess. She is a simple person with a terrible past life who is trying to make sure her life is better this time.

When the story started, it felt a bit shaky at first but it improved quite a bit in the following chapters.

I feel that it might not be the greatest book I have ever read but it gives you that fresh feeling that most novels just don't have today.

The Main Character of... more>> this novel even after Rebirth is not the smartest person which I really like since Rebirth shouldn't make you a God.

So nice novel, keep it up.

P.S Props for Translation Quality (Not the best but it is close to the top contenders) <<less
