I'm sorry, but I read the raws and the author's grammar is just so bad it made my head hurt. I'm not even exaggerating. It must've been so hard to translate this.

As one of the reviewers said, this is just one of those highly unrealistic cliched brainless story---no originality, no character development, no central conflict, no plot structure, no logic, no research, no worldbuilding, even no moral value. This is really one of the worst cliched modern CN webnovels I've read this year.

But then again, this might've been written by... more>> a middle schooler, so yeah. <<less

Mmmm well, it's your typical blantantly face-slapping & brainless story

While it's not bad, but the more you've read this type of story, the less special/amusing this story is.

As for the romance.... it's... I dont know why ML like MC?

... more>> ML meet MC through MC's friend whose looking for blind-dates for her

They talk and MC told ML to wait for her to break engagement before they start dating, ML agrees

After MC break engagement, she told ML that she doesn't want to get into a relationship and won't marry until 15 years have passed (which is like, excuse me? ma'am?)

ML refuse to give up on MC (even if you ask me why, I won't know why), secretly help MC, eventually told MC that they can postpone marriage but can they be in a relationship, MC still doesn't agree

And I stop reading cause MC is honestly no better than her (ex-) fiancee's girl.

MC basically did everything within the boundary that system allows to anger, digust and drag down (ex-) fiancee's girl, and while revenge/faceslapping story can be enjoyable when written properly, I don't consider this as well-written. <<less

Meh. The story was good at first. It was a bit exciting when she started to show her true self, and left the Chen Jinfeng (especially the part when they broke their engagement), but then it became a bit bland and nonsensical. She was too showy and it's like she didn't have any self-control and did whatever she wanted without thinking about the consequences. Yes, she invested in good projects but her subordinates are left with no choice but to do whatever she chose with no room for discussion. She's... more>> always the hot topic of gossips. There were literally no breaks, just continuous troublemaking and faceslapping. There wasn't even much time for romance. I doubt she even liked the ML much. The marriage also looked forced. They just got married out of the blue. She literally got married just for the sake of the plot. I felt bad for the ML. She just dragged him around, forced to follow her whims because he loves her. <<less

This is an enjoyable read. I recommend this if you want something to occupy your time, you don't really need a brain to enjoy face slapping. There isn't a lot of logic here in this WN.

MC is hilarious and I really do enjoy how independent she is. She is actually quite honest with her intentions but honestly, a lot of the things she does is very "extra" and basically, there is no common sense when it comes to her. She ignores the poor system which... okay fine but there isn't... more>> any repercussion for her when she does so which is kinda sad. I really do want to see her struggle. There is literally no character growth and it's already c56.

ML, on the other hand, is kinda random I feel. I don't really see why he was attracted to MC, there's no backstory for that so far. He kinda just likes her from the beginning and I'm like * surprised pikachu meme*. It is hilarious though how he tries to be lowkey and an average guy. <<less

Warning: It's going to be a long rant

It's the New Year. I have nothing to do. So I just finished this book in 3 days.

And yes, I do have a lot to say about this novel.

Long story short, MC transmigrated into a novel as cannon fodder. She just wants to complete her story arc asap so "The System" will let her do as she pleases. She hates book ML & FL and wants nothing to do with them. She's just acting like she's in love with him the whole time.... more>> So when book ML finally broke off the engagement, she finally was able to be her true self.

It started off quite well and did a good job hooking readers in. I'm immediately intrigued by the MC and her conditions, as well as her relationships with the supposed male lead (her fiance) and her family. But it gets very boring very quickly.

As many have pointed out, the MC is too OP. She is prettier than the book FL. She has a Midas touch, so everything she does she always wins. Wanna be a singer? She's the best-selling singer/songwriter. Investing in a business she has no clues of? She gains success after success without lifting a finger. Getting dirty water thrown at? She's able to turn the table in a single chapter. Got her engagement canceled? The wealthier and more handsome CEO is now head over heels for her.

And it never felt like she has to earn what she receives. Other side characters are also pretty bland, especially the ML, which I think got done so dirty by the author. He basically has no character outside being in love with the MC for no particular reason. Her friends were there just to be her friends. Her ex-fiance is too blind by love and the supposed female lead is just so s*upid it's unbelievable how she ever gets anything done in the first place. She just doubles down every time she crosses paths with the MC and goes downward spiral like how doo-doo naturally goes down the sewage.

The only person I think has a good arc is the MC's younger brother. He's a spoiled young brat but he still has his pride and he's committed to what he wants to do. And he's able to turn around from a good-for-nothing to a respectable character at the end. He's my favorite in this story.

Story-wise, I can't read Chinese so I'm not sure if it's the raw or the translation but the dialogs felt very mumble-jumble. Many times it's unclear who's speaking what and other times it felt like some lines were missing. I also don't like how the author often cuts the scene before it is supposed to end. As a fellow writer, I personally think it's cheating. You cut the scenes so you don't have to write out the difficult parts. For example,


There is a scene where the book ML tried to stop the book FL from messing with the MC coz he knows book FL is s*upid and she's never going to win and in the end, he would have to clean up after her.

The scene just cuts after the book ML said "You can't win" and next thing we knew the couple was not on speaking terms. Like wtf happened? It's an emotional and important scene that you should write out for readers. It says so much about how book ML was getting tired of book FL and started to regret abandoning the MC. And how book FL couldn't get her head above the dirty water to see how far she is from where she began. But no, just cut it off like it's nothing. Right. Lazy author.


Ranting aside, I actually enjoyed the first 50 or so chapters. I've been reading a lot of heart-breaking, tragic stories so it's nice to have an MC who slaps everyone's face before breakfast and after lunch. It's a very satisfactory read.

But don't invest too much into the storytelling itself. Read this as a joke or a brainless activity before going to bed and you're good.

It's not the worst ever, but definitely not well-written either. I give it 3/5 stars. <<less

Be aware that this story truly throws common sense out of the window. MC is super OP and everything she does not only goes good but also makes her even richer. OG ML and FL only exists to be cannon fodder and make her shine bright, they even ends sabotaging and making themselves the butt joke of this novel world.

ML has no pride and chases stalkingly MC after falling in love at first sight. He is also the male God there, and apparently has only one braincell when it comes... more>> to love.

Basically this novel is just a 'side character' indiscriminately faceslapping two pitiful idiots.

No depth, no true drama, characters are pretty plain as they are unidimensional. So if you're looking for a story that has sustenance, memorable characters, rich plot, wordbuilding, justificable and satisfactory faceslapping... This is not your story, you might even feel you lost some braincells while reading lol

Now if you just want an hilarious story about a Mary Sue suppressing the main characters with money, beauty and talent, this is it! <<less

Reading this feels like someone keeps pressing the fast forward button behind your back, meaning a lot of things happens right after each other without break and you have no sense of time.

That aside, you really should not take this novel seriously... like at all. The FL is a Mary Sue who recklessly throws money around, making everyone think that she is about to go bankrupt. But luckily, all her investments succeed. Talk about plot armor.

The ML is also ridiculous and can't be taken seriously. He falls in love with... more>> the FL at first sight and is a wife s*ave from the very get go, changing himself according to her tastes even if it means deceiving her.

There were also a few inconsistencies that bothered me, but I did not care enough to go back and double-check.

So yeah, all in all the novel is an okay story as long as you keep your expectations low and your brain off. <<less

If you're looking for a novel that is well written and good plot then this is not for you.

The FL is ridiculously op, the ML is basically an extra and the other characters are boring.

I felt like the romance was forced and the antagonists in this story was your typical antagonists with lack of brain. The FL was chill and I like that she was very clear about cutting ties with her family but other than that, she is your usual too op chinese novel's female lead with a system.

And... more>> through the story, I felt like I lost a few braincells because of the translation.

But yeah, if you wanted a light read and don't mind reading a story with an overused plot, illogical story line, bad translation and forced romance, I'd say why don't turn off your brain for a few hours and give it a try ? <<less

This novel is a straight up spoof of face-slapping novels and that aspect is hilarious. Because it’s a parody, I’m not going to hold it to the same plot standards as a novel that takes itself seriously, BUT. It would get tiresome if it were much longer.

Because it’s just stacking tropes and cliches from the genre, it reads a bit... rushed? It feels almost episodic, like checking tropes off the list without much effort to logically string them together. Like the OP ceo ML appearing out of nowhere, deeply in... more>> love with her (enough to play at being poor because she wants a hot-but-otherwise-ordinary marriage).

Again, since this is essentially a short gag novel, that’s not really an issue.

If you’ve read a zillion modern face slapping novels you’ll probably laugh because it’s so silly and over the top and all the tropes are ridiculously on the nose while also extreme somehow.

If you aren’t familiar with the genre or read this seriously... well, it would probably be awful. There’s no character development, no real plot, everyone acts like an extreme archetype caricatures, and the events are random and outrageous. (Like forcing her stereotypical spoiled-by-a-patriarchal-rich-family brother to choose between breaking his arm or signing a contract for a reform camp reality show for 2nd gen tr*sh—which cane out of nowhere. He wanted her to buy a yacht for him with her broken engagement fee and she was like...I’ll break your arm or sign. 😂 It was just a random tidbit thrown in out of nowhere. Not even a full chapter.)

a lot of the reviews seem to view this novel seriously... which I can’t fathom. It would be a 1 Star novel if it was honestly trying. But it’s on the nose as a spoof, so it’s probably more like 3.5. Fun quick read with no nutritional value. <<less

It was a nice read. MC is likeable, ML is a bit sidelined (poor guy lol) and the plot is easy to follow. What I like is that it didn't go to the point that the "villain" gets destroyed thoroughly and gets a chance to redeem themselves through self-introspection (except MC's lil sis, but hey 20+ years of patriarchal brainwashing and inferiority complex is not something you can make disappear with just a few months of hardship). Even the jerk father becomes better nearing the end of the novel, which... more>> I appreciate. The writing style is a bit like a summary sometimes, but I guess it's better than long, poetic description about the character's appearance. Most of the characters are likeable, but ML's parents really topped my fav characters in the novel despite them only appearing very little. They're just a pair of lovebirds on honeymoon that keep shoving dog food to their son XD <<less

I can't, I just can't.

There's no logic at all.

This is probably written by a middle schooler, the story is confusing, the events are impossible, orgFL and orgML are so s*upid, the male lead is just an extra in the story and the female lead is an ultra max OP caracter that it became boring.

She decides to have a pilot license so she goes the next day to have the exam, but never use that license. She discovered a gold mine, invests in s*upid dramas but they turn out to... more>> be hot dramas. Her family suddenly and all by themselves change for the better, ex-fiance suddenly regrets dumping her when he finally gets together with his first love, a male lead that is pathetic and only has like 7 appearances in the entire novel....

The only reason I finished this novel is because I wanted to know how more unrealistic it can be.

I just really believe that this was written by a 12 years old girl. <<less

I love this novel. I like the fact that the female lead doesn't give a crap about the original female and male lead not unless they go against her. She also beat the system, literally.

... more>>

Meng Chu has a system as makes her act as the supporting character or ex-fiancee in the original romance novel she transmigrated in. Meng Chu after having her engagement annulled, bought a villa, she started showing her hidden identity little by little that she is a famous singer and songwriter, then she suddenly buys an entertainment company, finds a gold mine in her villa, and somewhere in between she learned how to be a pilot, she also invested in some movies, did an endorsement, watched a meteor shower, and in-between all of that was drama with the original female lead and multiple scandals saying that she likes fresh meat'. The romance of Meng Chu is extremely slow-paced, she doesn't even know that CEO is actually near her, and even in love with her

I'm not yet finished and am just starting to read the MTL and I am excited. I will edit this for more spoilers or if I change my mind in any way. <<less

I can't take it anymore.

The plot is too fast.

... more>>

Nothing was mentioned about what she was doing in her past life, but the next thing she become a popular masked singer and song writer and that her songs all and will become a hit.



She asked someone to introduce her to an 'ordinary' person for a blind date and yeah he appeared and she was quite satisfied with him so she asked him to wait for her to end her 'engagement', but why do these scenes happened in one same chapter.



And that 'ordinary' guy was really confusing. He was some kind of boss but he introduced himself to be 'working' as a programmer. Although it wasn't necessarily a lie, why does it seem to me like he's pretending. They barely just met in a single chapter and he's acting like those MLs who pretend to be poor but when they marry their FL they turned to be rich and powerful. Was it because MC wanted someone who's ordinary, has stable job, honest and clean. It was his first appearance and he had just met the MC by then. I couldn't see any development there and his character become like this then turned to that just because of MC's criteria. I don't know if he's the ML but it really seemed like he was because of clichés. And the supposedly badass MC was also easily convinced and viewed him as really excellent blah blah, but because the system said the supporting character only married after she was 30/40 yrs old, she directly told him she won't date anyone for 10/15 years, even though she's the one who asked him if he can wait for her to break the engagement before they officially blind date. And that guy's reaction to that was only dumbfounded.


I've only read about 20 chapters and so many things happened. Here I'm still comprehending how the MC dealt with original body's father.

My head hurt so much to consider this one a light read. The premise was a bit exciting, but there were many things that just didn't make any sense.

And I really doubt that slow romance tag 'cause this novel seemed fast paced. <<less

It has a great premise but has fallen short with the actual writing.

While sure the MC became all powerful and all, it just seems lacking.

The love, chemistry between the ML and MC is also dry. Like a scorching desert. Especially on MC's feelings. Their interactions really are like friends.

OML and OFL 's end is satisfying though. They deserve it.

Recommended to those who don't like complicated novels. It's nice but I always feel that the story lacked something. Esp in the romance part. I know it's a subplot but please address it nicely. I was left wondering how they fell in love with each other. The ML is likeable though. He's not my yandere type fave but he's funny. He can act like he's an ordinary person so he'll fit MC's criteria for husband's. He's cute and pretty s*upid. The story was quite fast paced for me. I got... more>> dizzy from jumping here to here.

What's good about this was that the original FP and MP acts like annoying cannon fodders but they all changed for the better; before everything is irreparable. They separated in the end. <<less

I find this boring. Even though I turned off my logic abd let myself enjoy the cliche and overused plot and lines it's still a meh for me. Probably because of how it was translated or how it was being written? It's kind of boring.

I find it lacking in terms of details and just the whole narration of the situation and thoughts. I mean there are a lot of cliche and overused tropes out there but some still manage to stand out because the author skillfully wrote them.

Anyway, that's just... more>> my opinion. Maybe if you're new into CN josei novels, you might find yourself enjoying this one. <<less

I been craving for villainness story, original or not, mary sue or what, so long as it's executed well, I be fine. Initially, I thought it was because I been reading too much that reading this just feels too bland but after checking with fellow reviews it seems I'm not the only one. Lol.

Nothing interesting is happening, if there is it would immediately be ruined by MC's mary sue halo.

Has such strong premise, unfortunately was ruined by poor execution.

Actually, this novel's premise is quite good. It has potential to be a good romcom novel but unfortunately, it was poorly written. Each scenes in this novel was too short and often stopped abruptly before moving on to the next scene. Sometimes, the dialogue was also a bit confusing and often made me thought, "What was that again?".

MC's character was also so bland and boring. She's typical OP character who was so beautiful, super rich, and had many talents.

... more>>

I know that you couldn't use logic for this kind of novel but still I wondered just how rich MC was. After she broke her engagement, she threw money like water. She bought a luxurious villa, private jet, entertainment company, and unfinished property (which turned out to have a gold mine under it). I know that she was a famous singer but still it didn't make sense to have money that much even with the compensation from her ex fiance.


ML also didn't leave much impression. He was portrayed as a devoted and henpecked CEO but his romance with MC wasn't well developed.


ML accidentally met MC while she looked for a blind date (she was required to get married with an ordinary man in order to finish the original plot). According to ML, he fell in love with MC at the first sight. It just didn't make sense. MC didn't treat him well in the their first meeting. She directy told ML that she still had a fiance and told him to wait until she dissolved it first before doing a blind date with him. How could a CEO from a rich family let MC doing that to him?

MC didn't treat him any better in their second meeting. She left him hanging by telling him that she won't marry until 10-15 years later. But ML was still willing to wait for her. Really, where is your dignity?

ML also rarely showed up in the scenes. Even if he showed up, there's not much interaction between him and MC. He only had 1 or 2 dialogues at most and then he didn't show up until a few chapters later. He finally had many dialogues and appearances after he married MC.

Look I tried very hard with this one, I wanted something light and a bit silly. I read a few parody books and thought why not, it's from fan translations so far they haven't led me wrong. But no! This was so bad to get through. And the premise was good, it's what drew me in. It's just the execution was kind of tr*sh. You really do need to let go of your logic and maybe suffocate a few brain cells to enjoy this.

Maybe if the pacing wasn't so fast... more>> it would be better, you know to enjoy what was happening (and this is with the translation spliting chapters up, so imagine if they were grouped like the actual listing). We really don't know much about her, she relies too much on the system for money cheats and it's always in the name of helping out the OG leads. Very few of the face slaps were funny/well executed, the whole deal with her little brother was extremely s*upid to me,

And don't get me started on ML. Like MC is dense when it comes to romance. Like she wants to follow the plot but is very content to ignore some loopholes yet jump for other. It's frustrating. But ML is an absolute moron despite his qualifications and the people around him just instigate his s*upidity. Where is the love?? He's so obsessed with her and does whatever she wants yet I can't see a real reason for it?!?! Honestly sometimes his actions come off like an elementary schooler.

Sidenote the translation could be rough in some spots, like a few steps above MTL and could lead to a bit of confusion. This novel wasn't to my taste but maybe it's someone else's. <<less
