The Rebirth Waste Strikes Back

“Master, the people from the Zhuang family have come to cancel the engagement.”

“My fiancé whose beauty was said to be capable of causing the downfall of a city, finally decided to throw me away?”

“I think so.”

“I want to see this legendary beauty, and confirm whether this bastard is really great as people say, to have no flaws in all 360 degrees, a picturesque appearance however you look at him; does he need me to help him open the corner of his eyes (Epicanthoplasty) or reshape his chin (Genioplasty)?”

“Actually, he didn’t come.”

“He didn’t? He didn’t even come to cancel the engagement? What a wicked b*tch.”

“He definitely will get karma.”

I stopped where the translation stopped. I think it's was a good stopping point. I am guessing MC and ML just doing to Dual cultivate to power up afterwards against stronger enemies from other kingdoms and Empeor etc

I LOVE MC from the beginning he was so on point and sassy. The things he was saying made me rolling on the floor laughing. But then at certain point he stopped and ML became the shameless one like their swapped bodies which was weird... then it was like daily life and stuff.... more>> I can tell enthusiasm from the author fallen alot by the time it reached 100s which was a shame. The forced marriage move by ML really damped the mood. What I would've done is put in a strong rival in love from another country and make ML regrets his decision in the first place. I feel MC was taken advantage of and it was not romantic or any type of redemption. <<less

The MC is a bit licentious for me, coupled with the fact that he can't get over his ex-fiancee and hurl insults at him here and there whenever he gets the chance. That only shows how bitter he is. Yes, he didn't show up during his annulment, is that something you should be bitter about? Given that you also agreed to it, why act like your ex-fiancee owed you anything? And he kept hovering around the ML, if he doesn't have any interest, why not completely get out of the... more>> way and concern yourself of anything related to him? <<less

His shamelessness and eloquence astonished me. I mean, I already have my fair share of shameless MCs, There's Grisia from Legend of Sun Knight, but Grisia is much more restrained because of his role hence he did not speak out his shameless monologue much (although, it kinda a waste of talent in eloquence and shamelessness). There's also Ye Xiu from The King's Avatar, but his temper prevented him to truly exuded a top-notch shamelessness where shame is not even a word but an air. There's also Wei Wuxian from Grandmaster... more>> of Demonic Cultivation (A.k.a Founder of Diabolism), but even Wuxian is also more elegant in exuding it. And many others...

This? This freaking executed shamelessness with an eloquence of an imperial empress, a shamelessness of a professional prostitute, the narcissism of a spoiled princess, an ego as big as the sun, confidence as smooth as the air. f*cking brilliant! At the very least, those other shameless guys had some conscience to admit there are other guys that's more handsome than they are (Grisia and WWX), but Qi Shaorong, our MC in this novel, kept boosting his own beauty even in front of the most sought-after man in the whole kingdom.

5 stars for his personality and eloquence alone. <<less

I'm halfway through the novel now, at chapter 101, and I'm not sure if I'll continue reading it. This novel is mostly about romance. It's funny, MC is smart, sassy and likeable. If it was just this, even based on the fact that there's hardly any focus on cultivation or business elements, then I could still give the novel 4.5 stars.

BUT, I've a HUGE problem with ML. The author intended for him to be single-mindedly devoted to MC, which is great and all, except for the fact that even 100... more>> chapters in, when ML already realizes how great MC is and has started to chase him, he's never properly apologized for his mistakes, arrogant assumptions and blatant dismissal of MC since the very start.

First, he has some vague idea about the cancellation of their engagement (irresponsible), gives a disinterested explanation about it (indifferent), then when he finds out MC is the great doctor he's in love with and amazingly talented, he forces him into reengagement (selfish, thinks he's above everyone).

He forcefully gets MC to be his fiance once more through some dubious marriage contract that he can't withdraw. If this is supposed to be romantic, I really can't see it! MC is an outcast who had to find other people discarded by their families just like him, to build the life that he has now. Seems to me like ML is no different from MC's hypocritical family. <<less

Zero romance. Nada. Absolutely nothing.

You don't know why ML falls in love with the MC and you don't know if the MC even likes ML after finishing the novel.

There's comedy and the MC is shameless. But don't come to read this if you like the main couple to share at least a single intimate moment like kissing or holding hands like a couple.

First timer, anyway I will try be precise:

-Funny, cunning, smart MC

-MC is all about beauties (men not girls)

... more>> -MC is a super famous surgeon (for beauty reason and heath reason, so far in the story

-ML is not know yet, but he might be the ex-fiancé

-MC loves money, dedicated 1 paragraph to how time is money for MC

-Setting is historical with cultivation, although MC was born as a modern cosmic surgeon (went to university for medical art/product makers = who rebirth as an ungifted magic user (have past memories in mind even when he's still a child)

-All male characters are very handsome in one way or another

-Easy read but you can already tell how the story will get more complicated and entertaining as it progress

-Translator is also very good at her job, many thanks to her <<less

Deduct one star for the lack of world building, deduct one more star for DISSATISFYING ML! leave 3 stars for comedy it offers...

One phrase, ML is like an over-indulged and spoiled princess who always has people fawning over him, and think the world revolves around him!!

Maybe it's the first time I was actually thinking that ML (gong) doesn't deserve the MC (shou) at all?

I was disappointed because ML actually never properly regret and ask for forgiveness after he always treat MC real identity as the waste child very poorly and... more>> rude.

And instead he forced the MC to re-engage with him, with an unbreakable contract marriage, after he knows that MC alter identity is the famous doctor with great reputation that ML fall in love with.

I was so fed up with those overbearing ML! Someone who think so highly of himself and never apologize properly. It made him like he only love the identity of Great famous doctor who's so wealthy, rather than the person himself.

I truly agree that MC is actually more suited to be with Zhang Rangxuan, the ML's uncle. Their interaction more natural and more refreshing rather than over-indulged ML. <<less

Review at Chapter 21:

Great!! ★★★★★ The MC is so hilarious, the very embodiment of shamelessness and narcissism himself. And yet, I can't help but think of him as adorable. He is so petty that he always bring up all his grievances in his own sarcastic way. I love the face-slapping! XD

So far, there's no further development to the plot and the story remains light-hearted, akin to a slice of life, comedy story. However, I see some underlying flags of dramas and more face-slapping.

I love the MC so much. Some novels also have shameless and narcissistic MCs but they never lived up to expectation and even turns out annoying. But this one's different. I have so much fun whenever he opens his mouth, it's so amusing. I'm also very interested at how almost all his people (as of now) were all underestimated characters, and I'm antipating how things will end.



Review at Chapter 262:

Okay, so I have just reached the end of the novel, not including the side story. And I have to say that this story is very enjoyable to read. It's been a very funny at exciting ride. Recently, the translator dropped the novel at Chapter 77. It was really a cliff hanger phase since it's very near a turning point in the story


in which the MC reveals his identity as the Ghost Doctor when he fought against a Qi Family elder and used both dark and light magic. Zhuang Hao personally witnessed the scene and was shocked for a few chapters and unable to move on from the sudden epiphany.


Also, at this point in the novel, the plot moves from the day-to-day funny events to diving straight to our character's backstories, mainly, Qi Shaoran's four followers who are in charge of QSR' cosmetic businesses.

All four followers follow the same line of either being kicked out of the family, heavily underestimated or disdained and such. They all put a closure to their past and each one of them gets together with their own respective partners. Of course, the last one to get married is still our main couple. ❤



Around the hundredth chapters, the MC — along with Zhuang Hao (male lead), Yi Fan (MC's subordinate) and Mu Tingxuan (Yi Fan's partner and another one of MC's subordinates) went to "god's abandoned land" to search for a spiritual plant. The land is a domain where magic cannot be used and people live in a primitive society. MC stayed there for four years.



MC and his companions got a spiritual fruit in the forbidden land which can make people "bear a child" (nope, this isn't mpreg if you're concerned about it). Basically, you feed the fruit with parent's blood for a few months then voila! A baby will form from the fruit.

MC and ML had a child called "Zhuang Yun" who is mature, quiet, and very smart. Meanwhile, Yi Fan and Mu Tingxuan have a son of the same age named "Yi Ming" who is completely the opposite of his two fathers. He is restless, a bit silly, arrogant and can be considered a mini-Qi Shaorong. The two children are childhood friends. Yi Ming always like to contend with Zhuang Yun over everything but always fail, while Zhuang Yun always bullies teases Yi Ming. In the end, the two got married together ♡


Yi Ming: Uncle Qi, what do I do if I hate someone very much but I don't have the ability to move him?

MC: If you can't fight him along then bring people to fight him together!
Yi Ming: But what if it doesn't work?
MC: Revenge isn't too late even after ten years. Ten years later, just robbed him of his wife, ah!
Yi Ming: But he's too strong! What can I do if I can't do all of those?
MC: Hehe, then just marry him!

Interesting concept, but a little bumpy there in the beginning. I am eager to know more (hence the 4 stars).

What I got:
What happens when you get pressured to be one thing and it backfires. Not just on the pressure-er but on you as well? What happens then when you are reborn a waste? Talentless, unwanted, and just flat out over it all?

If you read the other reviews and were put off by people calling this a crack fic, don't listen to them. This can not qualify as crack, at most it's crack taken seriously. It's just that our MC really, really, doesn't care about the opinions of other people, which... can you blame him?

The setting of the story... this might come off as rude so excuse me in advance, but if you can't pin down the setting then you need to go read more Chinese novels. The author doesn't go... more>> into detail about it because the Xuanhaun genre and other related ones are really freaking common in Chinese media. It's like asking them to explain what an elf is or for them to go into detail about the intricacies of mage vs warriors or what the heck a slime is. It just doesn't need to be done, so they don't.

Anyways, this genre generally has a lot of manipulative schemers who only care about reputation and power. Our MC, who was very wealthy and successful in his previous life doesn't care for that kind of stuff so he really goes at his own pace, not letting anyone's unspoken rules affect him. He's very shameless about his love for beauty so he says and does things that are out of the norm, which might seem crack-y, but it's not like it came out of nowhere, it's just his generally rebellious attitude.

I agree that the author doesn't provide much physical description in their story and I kind of wish they did, but I'm able to picture the story surprisingly well in my head. I think it was probably intentional that the author did that. Because specific looks aren't really important, just that their looks are something, whether it be ugly or beautiful. If that makes any sense... <<less

This is a story about face slapping which was interesting. Everything is probably good but I have a large dissatisfaction. I am very displeased at the ML. It was easy to understand that MC was shameless just by reading into a few chapters but the ML is even more shameless than the MC in a terrible way. MC shamelessness is the type where you want to laugh at it and ML type is the type you want to punch at his face.

... more>>

ML and MC are engaged and the engagement got canceled pretty early on and ML fall in love with MC hidden identity. And ML misunderstood that MC was his love rival. You can guess that ML attitude toward the MC wasn't really good. And guess what, after after MC identity was exposed ML become what you call a overbearing president that forces the MC to be with him with a master and s*ave contact~. MC wasn't even willing and I haven't even heard his apologize for his attitude toward MC. He said he will not regret canceling the engagement during the early part of the story and guess what, Talk about being shameless. The ML is just a spoiled, immature brat with a good family that haven't suffer any hardship since he was a genius. I know he wasn't a bad person but as a male lead you need to have someone who have a personality suitable to the MC not some immature rich brat that doesn't respect the MC. At least have a character development that show his change and regret, I see none

High potential wasted.

With the current trends (c102) (but it was kinda obvious since the beginning) the ML is going to be that "domineering" type, although is the MC is somewhat powerful (as in win against anyone but gotta lose to the ML), so maybe it's more appropriate to call it the ML the egomama type (I can't think of the correct English word but basically it means you do what you want without concern for others).

The MC is very interesting, but because the author forces him to be with... more>> the ML, many wrongs go unrighted. And since the MC is the only one worth following the story for...

Oh. It's gay marriage but there's "wife"-husband thingy so if you aren't comfortable with that...

There's also some r*pey mentality nonconsensual sh*t going on and I don't like it. I don't remember the particular instances (I'm not doing a good job of reviewing this huh..), but you'll get the idea once you read it. Everyone is basically guilty (they either say someone should do this or that and/or be complicit with it).

If the MC can ditch the ML or make him repent and have some character growth that would be great.

Doesn't seem possible though. The ML doesn't even think his actions were wrong or "wrong" for the right reasons.

TL;DR The MC is interesting and is what makes the story good. The story didn't do him justice though and that's why you should bail. That and there' s some problematic stuff.

I feel like I'm being generous with this 3.. <<less

The entire thing reads like the summary. It comes off sounding like a crack fic, which isn't to my taste. Since there is no exposition the setting is never described, the motives of anyone including the protagonist is never described. I have no idea how anyone looks, only whether the protagonist thinks they're attractive or not through dialogue. I don't have any idea why there is even gay marriage in the first place for the protagonist when the society seems like your typical ancient chinese-esque society. No one else seems... more>> to be in a gay marriage. <<less

I just want to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the first halfish of this novel. The MC was a breath of fresh air in a genre completely saturated by do nothing, passive, wall flower MCs that just timidly do everything the "black belly" ML wants them to do. That was the first half of the novel anyway. I will not spoil what exactly happens, but roughly halfway through the story something incredibly s*upid happens. You'll know it as soon as it happens because it is just that much of a stretch,... more>> and the way the characters deal with it afterwards is very out of character, especially so in the MCs case. Like I said I don't want to spoil it so I won't say what exactly happens, and how its dealt with, but to say it is unsatisfactory is an understatement. I'd say this part completely ruins the entire second half of the novel. <<less

I like Zhuang Renquan more than the ML, I feel like they will have a better relationship ?

ML, what happened to not regretting cancelling the marriage contract with the MC? I expected a bit of grovelling, but MC was served another marriage contract that the MC has no way out! What the f*ck. I don't blame ML for not loving the MC at first since ML and MC are basically strangers and ML only knows MC as Ghost Doctor but I didn't expect ML to actually do that.

Again, I... more>> was rooting for Zhuan Renquan. Even though his appearance in the novel is very minimal, I still felt he is more compatible with MC :D

But the story is still good though, ML is very dedicated to MC so it's not that bad. <<less

This is an excellent web novel! I love the MC because he is super shameless and funny. The MC's friends (servant?) are all very likable and they each have their own arc explaining their background and their romantic interest. The way that the story isn't completely focused on the MC makes it refreshing for when you want to see other couples interact.

The romance is slow, to the point where even the male lead is getting frustrated because all their other companions are getting married one after another and he still... more>> couldn't set a date with the MC. However, I quite like the slow romance because it's always funny to see the male lead getting provoked by their companions on how he's progressing so slow.

The story may be set in a fantasy world with magic and unicorns, but the sole focus is all on the money. With money, you can pretty much do anything. Strength matters very little, but that being said the main cast are all strong.

It's a really good read for people that likes comedy because this novel is full of it. <<less

I agree with RedsFable...

It has an interesting plot, but character development needs a lot of work. The Main Character might as well be classified as a wallflower.

The world is also not explained at all. "Magicians??? What?"

The translation is on point. The only thing I dislike about the translation is how they add a colon instead of a comma before a person speaks.

Overall a pretty easy to read and I quit enjoyed (No need to remember complex schemes and boring history lessons). What really carried in the beginning was the MC but it story does get a bit repetitive with its shameless and jokes.


Characters all have their uniqueness and get their own back story. They are also not just kicked to the curb once their backstory is over.

... more>> Love the relationships between MC and his subordinates. They really give the feeling of friends that been through a lot together.

The shamelessness of the MC is to a degree that is quit rare in most novel. It is actually quit refreshing. (But it does get old if it’s the same thing over and over again...)


ML’s personality change was too unnatural after MC’s identity was revealed. He was like a completely different person and there is no foreshadowing to it. At first he was a honest and cold character with a thin face but his pursuit of MC was honestly kind of cute back then. After the reveal, his face got so thick you left pondering where it came from. I think this made a lot of people dislike him. It would’ve been cuter and more fun read to see him struggle honestly to make up to MC. And then the MC finally giving up to his honesty and feeling bad for his constant teasing of someone who treat him so well.

ROMANCE in this story is VERY lack luster. Although the story is center around the MC and ML’s relationship... it is written in a way where there is no spark and chemistry. Even after 100 chapter in you will still feel there is absolute no progress. I really think this is due to the lack of adding emotion to the writing. For examples, their first kiss should’ve of been a big deal for us readers and makes us giggle in our seats but it was very forgettable because it was written as “ML force kiss MC, the end”. That is so ‘dry’.... like describe how he was kiss, what are the sensations, what are characters thinking... etc

There is no smut in this so don’t bother if you just looking for smut.

MC and ML are so overpowered whenever situation becomes hard, they don’t really have any set backs. <<less

First time commenting so this is gonna be short and probably not that informative but please bear with me.

    1. First of all the story itself is great. I love the MC but the ml... not so much. First of all MC deserves waaaay better than the ML in my opinion and I think ML actually holds MC back *sigh* but what can you do?
    1. Second, the plot is great but I see people complaining about the lack of 'setting' aka background details and stuff but honestly I just think that's... more>> just really digging for something to complain about. Yes the setting is barely existent but like... who cares if the story is good ? Are you here for a geography lesson on made up places and worlds or to follow in on the adventures of the ML and mc? Pick one you cant always have both the author isn't a sentient being so chill
    1. So far that's all i've got. I've never been good with informative writing so I'll maybe update this review later if need arises.
Lastly if you're an impatient person like me and really cant wait for updates once a week then this book isn't for you -yet. This translator updates ONCE a WEEK that's 48 or so

chapters a YEAR so if you hate cliffys and just plain waiting, comeback in 3 or so years. But either than that this the translation is superb and well done but I hope translator san gets a team to help them for faster updates.

The previous translator has dropped the story

so sad. And the new translation is complete garbage and not to mention the website their using has a lot of miss-directing adds which I suspect is actually just a phishing site


so if you wanted to continue reading this story and don't know chinese I suggest you pick up your study glasses, it's time to learn some mandarin! or go to the temple and pray for a new translator to pick this up ^_^ <<less
