Two families’ children were switched at birth. One of the families is a household that does business, and the other is a household of a marquis. There is a vast difference in status.

Unfortunately, Yu Xiang transmigrated as a person that was originally from a business household and was brought up in marquis’s residence. As soon as she arrived, the truth about her lineage was exposed, her legs were disabled, and she was still bearing the reputation of “the unlucky star”. In desperation, she had to hug her elder brother’s thigh firmly and attempt to live her days first. When the original daughter of the marquis’s family returns, Yu Xiang will return the position to her.

A few years later, the original daughter returned, Yu Xiang was prepared to leave, but she found that her technique of holding his thighs was too professional. Her older brother refused to let her go!

The marquis concealed his smile with the wine cup: How can his pampered wife, that grew up with him, leave whenever she wants?

Solid writing and translation. Eventhough the MC is a cripple, she is not bitter about it and the brother empowers her so she doesn't get bullied. The grandma also treasures her eventhough she's not their blood kin. She's actually spoiled by a lot of people, her grandma, brother, even by the royal family, but she's not rotten, just a little unruly and very frank..

It's an awesome story. The fluff is not icky at all even with the fakecest. Maybe because you know she's not with him since birth, and they... more>> both know they'renot really sibling. It's just that the ML is so intimate with the FL for an ancient man. She's very touchy towards him too. The poor maid, thinking they have incest. Lmao.

I just wanna add that the og FL of the novel is delusional and greedy, the maonk already warned her she needs to be virtuois to get riď of her bad jinx but she still went on to do more sinister plot <<less

It's a really good story however I don't understand the yandere tag as he certainly is not a yandere. Perhaps mildly toxic but that's about it.

Hi, I am one of the translator of this novel. Thus, this review may be a biased review.

This novel is one of my favourite "Fake siblings romance". It is sweet and the male lead pampers the female lead a lot. Honestly, this novel may not be as realistic as the other novels that I have read but I enjoyed how endearing both of them were. They faced situations together no matter what happens.

Also, unlike what the author has said, I don't find the female lead much of a Yandere nor... more>> someone who has gold fingers (a cheat). I feel that the Yandere should be referring to the male lead instead

since he really did whatever he can to make everyone accepts the female lead and since he was the person with power in the family. The family members had no choice but to listen.

She is determined to live her new life regardless of any troubles that she faces.

As for the male lead, *cough* he is the typical male lead that is cold to everyone except the female lead. Haha. So that may be a con to some. But, as a reader, I enjoyed it a lot. He is possessive and confident person. He assured the female lead several times that she can do whatever she wants because he would support her no matter what. He ignores the traditions and cultures for her.

For their relationships, it is a slow romance in the beginning and

they would only be together when the female lead is considered an adult in the ancient world.


All in all, I think this is a great novel if you are looking for a novel that is rather much simpler (compared to those novels that has politics) and if you are looking for a sweet romantic story. However, if you are looking for a smart protagonist or a novel that has many plot twists, this novel wouldn't be for you.

Also, I will summarise the pros and cons of this novel (that I can think of) below:-


-Sweet and romantic love

-Fake siblings relationship (a pro to some that likes this type of novels o///o)

-There are no female supporting characters that are involved in their romantic relationship. Thus, 1v1.
-Possessive male lead


- some may find it creepy/disgusting because of the fake sibling love

- may be a bit unrealistic

-It isn't a novel on politics amongst family members nor imperial court.

Thank you for reading my review. And, I would like to take this opportunity thick-skinnedly to thank readers in advance for bearing with my grammar and/or mistakes in translations. Finally, I hope you will enjoy this novel. <<less

Now THIS is an enjoyable Yandere.

They're partners, they express love and are HONEST and just, ahh dying in sweetness despite the extremes of their possession. Both are possessive to the Nth degree for the other but anger and aggressiveness are for enemies. When they're together only love is on the table.

Tyrannical yandere love that accepts the other in all aspects, pampers, and trusts 100% after expressing their bottom lines up front, be still my heart. This is everything Raiding the Wolf Boss isn't. Partnership, face slapping, and intimacy that isn't... more>> forced or awkward but enjoyed by everyone hohoho~


In case it bothers you, yes she does eventually regain the ability to walk. Not by magic but in a legitimate way.

I wouldn't focus much on their prior lives, they don't get into it much at all. While it's possible the brother reincarnated into this world, it's clear he doesn't have a memory of a past life or anything of the sort. Consider her connection to her new brother a golden finger won by the fact she gave up her life for her prior brother. It's a guarantee for the original brother that she'll be taken care of once again.
I personally would not say that the ML is her original brother because on his end it wasn't love at first sight. Like he says later, one day he picked her up and just knew he loved her and that was that. The FL herself repeatedly says in the beginning that the man isn't her brother (hence her own confusion about the connection). I think the actions of the monk in the beginning of this story probably have more to do with this connection than anything.
I know one reviewer was disappointed there was no IRL extra, but considering that she is already super dead, never to come back, in the original world I can understand why there isn't. We already get marriage, babies and a side story for the brother/princess so plusses all around otherwise. C:

For once the female lead isn't an agent, or assasin, or miracle doctor/ poison expert. She doesn't aim to be over ambitious or become the empress. For once we have an honest FL who just wants stability and then stands her ground to save her love. The female lead is plenty brilliant, straightforward, and willful! With a great green thumb, knowledge from the novel and a few god given dreams, she's paves her way to make sure they all know to not to mess with. Really a FL who doesn't... more>> plot in the dark or aims to make those who cross her fall. If she fights back, she makes sure to stand proud and claim it.

5/5 for a good chill read with no super intense slaps or super fight <<less

Initially intriguing, the story started to fall flat about 1/3 of the way. There are somethings that aren't just quite believable about their situation and things begin to follow the cliche popularity.

... more>>

The author wrote that the MC, Yu Xiang has no awareness between men and women when it comes to her older brother as a way to build some sort of development/ interest between the two.

I find it unbelievable; especially since she came from modern times. Just because she relied on her brother for support in her previous life doesn't mean that the lines were blurred. It also wouldn't be so unbelievable if Yu Xiang didn't talk about her older brother in reverence, and when mentioning their past, their siblingship being repeated more than once. Therefore, it's a little weird as YPY was attracted to her emotionally, but she was kind of worshipping her brother like he was a deity.

If the author had left more ambiguity and didn't state many things, I believe that things wouldn't feel so inconceivable. But they wanted to put emphasis on how good and close their relationship was the MC and ML being separated, their souls knew each other. It's also a little weird for me as I consider this true incest--they were (blood) related at one point and were raised alongside each other as siblings--just because they aren't related in their current life, doesn't erase the past the author gave us. But it's a novel and anything can happen... I guess.


The male lead and villains are rather normal, you see them in most CN novels. The male lead, Yu Pin Yan, is the typical cold, ruthless, and only good to his 'di' 'sister', Yu Xiang. Although I would say that his love is more obsessive and he's not a true yandere, due to many of his actions and thoughts. One of the minor villains, Yu Si Yu, was the typical envious, hateful girl. The cannon fodders and mobs are basic--being one-dimensional--at best.



Finishing the novel, it's even more ridiculous that the main villain, the blood daughter/ real sister, Yu MiaoQi literally ran amok upon her return. Not only did Yu Pin Yan fail to keep his promise of getting rid of her if she attempts to mess with Yu Xiang, the female lead herself doesn't do enough to deal with her. It's quite frustrating to read about very silly schemes from a single character that should have been dealt with when she attempted to scheme against Yu Xiang the second time.

I feel my brain hurt after reading about YMQ and her c*ckroach life. She's literally written just to create drama--there's no growth in either one of the main characters by her disturbances. The two's very odd romance was progressing by itself without her around.

Also, I found it a little conflicting as I was reading because the author was using Buddhism as a way to 'whitten' the MC and make her a 'good' person.


In the end, it's not a unique read as it follows the typical revenge/ transmigration/ rebirth plotline. The plot armour is thicc and the MC, Yu Xiang is your definition of Mary Sue. It's an average read and I highly recommend that if you're interested in the novel, wait until it's completely translated. You'll save yourself a lot of trouble. <<less

Who doesn't like to read a MC with strong character and backbone to stand against anyone who try to cut her. Hehehe it was fun to read everytime MC Intimidated the people around her who underestimated her because her legs were paralysed. It was even more fun to read when people legit trembled everytime MC entered in their vicinity (lololol). It was a good read and all the characters were well written. Author has given equal importance to side characters too.

I'm cutting one star because no mater which era it... more>> is if a brother and sister display such affection publicly then its obviously not a pure relationship. But everyone in the story just accepted their affection as normal.. Blehhhh my brother hardly ever wants to hug me affectionately. So that was the only thing which was written over the top. But the rest was good to read.

Definitely recommend. <<less

This is such an irritating story, I don't understand why so many people like it. I stopped reading at Chapter 12, where the 10-year old MC is describing an 8-year old child as a cute ball and thinking that she has always liked to scare children. Excuse me? But aren't you a child as well! The author keeps on throwing various skills to MC just to save the plot.

... more>>

She suddenly has the skill of being able to see if something bad will happen to her brother which just sounds unreasonable.


All in all, please don't waste your time if you don't like to read about a white lotus because that is what MC is in this novel. (No female friends, everybody seemingly plotting against her, pitiful in front of her brother, throws food just so that her brother can pamper her.) <<less

It isn't YANDERE people. So if you are here for the YANDERE then take your leave. If you want a decent cute story then read it.

I mtled it. To tell you the truth from the name alone I was expecting something yandere in this novel. But guess what there was nothing yandere in it. Sure the ML had the possibility to be a yandere but didn't need to do anything yanderish since the MC also loved him early on. Heck there was even no vinegar eating moment. So yeah I... more>> don't know why the name had yandere in it when it doesn't even have anything yandere in it. They love each other and that's that.

For the story I can say is that it's a cute short story that I will not re read. The story is fairly simple with 2 dimensional characters. But still a good read for one time. Just not memorable. so for the story alone I will give it 4. For the YANDERE part that I came for I will give it 0.5 <<less

I really love this book. The MC is witty and adorable while the ML is cold but not overbearing. Their relationship is unique, as I have not read a cnovel where ... more>>

it's incest because it's implied that their souls are that of twin siblings who grew up together but has feelings towards each other that seem to go beyond that of siblings... but also not incest because their bodies are not blood-related.


I love how devoted and true they are to each other. In a way they are both yandere. There arent really any misunderstandings. It's both a fluffy and mature relationship. I already MTL'ed this thrice, and I'm gonna read this again once the translation is done (thanks for youe hard work). <<less

I read this MTL because I was too impatient.

This is probably one of my favorite MC's in a webnovel! ?

She's so decisive and straightforward. And she uses a whip to get her point across ?? I like her arrogant attitude toward life even though she spends most of her 2 lifetimes in a wheelchair. She's not totally merciless and knows how to forgive if the opponent is sincere. Even though she's bold and fierce on the outside, inwardly she has a kind heart, and she's without schemes. Tsundere!

I especially liked... more>> her relationship with the ML, they both kind of went with the flow, gradually building the atmosphere between them without the annoying angst. She was even aggressive and jealous at times, LOVE IT because don't want to read anymore about wishy-washy feelings. I also liked her spiritual connection with him.

Overall, the story isn't bad. She's too lucky in life, but once you read why at the very beginning you understand. There is tension especially with those who try to plot against the ML, but it makes the story more interesting.

The spiritual aspect of this story won me over, because I get tired of reading about main characters who don't believe in anything, or just overly arrogant believing only in themselves.

Even the side characters were interesting! Like princess nine ?

Though not smutty, I still enjoyed the slight taboo theme ?

Regardless, this was mostly well done. The ending was good, but something about it didn't let me feel very satisfied...?

It might have been that the author barely explored her flower growing power/ability.

Or maybe it's the fact that the people in the kingdom (except for grandma) were too understanding about their relationship. Even if they aren't blood related, SOMEONE outside the family should have made a stink about it.

That's why I didn't give it 5 stars.

I'd definitely read it again once fully translated. <<less

Yep. This novel is good. MC is so straightforward and always say what she wants. And ML? (ノ´∀`*) Ahaha. He pampers MC a lot. I like how both are possessive towards each other. It's pretty light read. Though there's some plot holes, it didn't really bothers me or affects the main story. I recommend this if you want some fluffy and medium drama story.

The novel's characters are honest, they are intelligent and wise.

1. The Yu family understands that hiding an issue will cause a bigger problem later.

... more>>

Other novels would have the family hide the 'switched at birth' issue out of fear/greed, but this Yu family tells the imperial family the truth and earns trust even though the family's disorder is seen.


2. They can see through a person's facade with ease.


THANK GOODNESS AM I RIGHT?! How many times are we going to watch broken-brained elders fall prey to the scheming white lotus b*tches?!

1. Yu Pin Yan can see past the facade and *ahem* he actually notices Yu Xiang's schemes but ~The heart grows fonder~~ At least he isn't an idiot who is moved like a chess piece just because someone sheds tears or shakes an ass.

2. Grandmother can see past the facade... she notices Yu Xiang shedding fake tears but laughs and lightly scolds her. She doesn't trust the Shu daughter's lies and is smart and aware of the political situation outside when deciding marriage prospects.

3. Yu Xiang clearly isn't fooled.


3. Ma Momo is clearly the novel's mascot. Indisputable.

Ma Momo is the truthful smart servant of Grandmother. She has great insights, ISN'T s*upid, clear-headed, and STRAIGHT UP MY MASCOT. She isn't one of the main characters but she appears enough to be a side-character. She is basically the spokesperson for all readers, what we want to say is transferred to Ma Momo, she is a living divine legend that possesses the intelligence of the gods. She is truly one of the greatest characters.


At first, I didn't like the Grandmother (she was hella annoying like any other old madam of ancient times), but after getting to know her I started to like her. I've always liked Ma Momo though.

Chapter 1 help: (This is bc when I attempted ch.1 it was boring, and I set the novel aside for months)

In the first life, she had a caring twin brother who would give the world to her and vice versa, when his heart failed she traded her life for his. When he woke up, his precious sister was already cremated so he went to a Buddhist temple to pray for her reincarnation to be full of good fortune. (It's so heartbreaking, but the first ch. is really confusing so this should help). Among the properties of his sister that he brought to the temple, there was a novel that had a cannon fodder character with the same name as her, she ended up transmigrating into that novel and becoming the 'merchant daughter that was raised in the Marquis's manor' a switched at birth story with the real Marquis's daughter as the female lead. Her 'mother' had her daughter's fate predicted and she was fated with 'the unlucky star', she was unloved at the manor and unwanted. She accidentally saves the Marquis's son from an attack that cripples both of her legs, she curses him -> he overhears it which kills his sorrow and guilt for her. When the real Marquis's daughter returns to the manor she is spoiled and the cannon fodder 'daughter' places her hatred on the real daughter, becoming a cannon fodder villainess. Sold off and dies.

She transmigrates after her legs are crippled and right before she curses out her brother. She did not curse her brother and instead garnered his pity and indulgence. (She did save his life at the cost of her mobility after all). While holding his golden thigh, they realize they are really compatible and comfortable around each other... as siblings. The Grandmother, Mother, Shu daughter, and Young master Yu Pin Yan all know that Yu Xiang is not the real daughter, however, Yu Xiang turns out to be a lucky star and is discreetly accepted into the manor by the Grandmother and Yu Pin Yan (The only two that matter on authority).

The funny thing is,

  • Yu Xiang knows she isn't the real daughter (she transmigrated into the novel character and has knowledge of the novel's story). AND.
  • The Grandmother, Mother, Shu daughter, and Yu Pin Yan know Yu Xiang isn't the real daughter.
Since no one told Yu Xiang that she isn't the real Di daughter, Grandmother and Yu Pin Yan are under the impression that Yu Xiang believes she is the real daughter lol. It's quite a circle, Yu Xiang pretends she doesn't know and Grandmother & Yu Pin Yan deliberately hide the truth from her.

This situation is good for MY heart since I don't have to anxiously worry because the cat is already out of the bag. It's cute to see Yu Pin Yan reassure Yu Xiang that they are blood-related, even when he knows they're not blood-related. Little liar lol. It's definitely sweet. Ah, I forgot about the mother again.

The Di Mother is a broken person who lives in the fond memories of her deceased husband. She had my pity and condolences at first, but her repeated pity parties, escapism, idiocy, and neglect garnered my disappointment and disgust. Many wives lose their husbands, lose their children, they mourn and stay strong for their family. This woman... haah, let us not mention her.


During chapters 60-70, Yu Miao Qi has officially earned my malice. I never liked her, I was always on the verge of detesting her. She has finally snapped my last string of patience. She is a vile roach that truly only bears grudges and holds no gratitude.

Ever since she sent two maidservants to Yu Pin Yan's courtyard to 'wash face' and 'grind inkstone'... grrr, she dares to place miscellaneous women near Yu Pin Yan. I'm pissed, TEAR THEM UP.

That audacious blackhearted scheming unlucky star. She is ruining the Yu Manor. Ruining the Yu Manor's carefully crafted prestige. Sowing discord everywhere in the manor. SHE NEEDS TO BE YEETED OUTTA THE HOUSE. Throw her away, don't look back, that little hell bringer is so vicious and insatiable she will bring down everything because the world owes her. Disgusting. I really dislike this character.

Ah. By the way, Yu Miao Qi is the original female lead of the novel Yu Xiang transmigrated into.

A sweet and lighthearted romance with a balanced plot, dynamic characters, and a bit of political intrigue towards the end. The pacing is just right, and the ending and the extras are satisfying. However, if you're iffy about the whole "fake siblings" thing, then this won't be for you.

I just have to say that they're both aware that they're not related by blood early on in the story.

The MC is clever and straightforward, and not scheming and vicious. Her disability never holds her back from doing whatever she wants. She... more>> confronts people head-on and makes them choke on their words, her sass unbeatable. She's also extremely carefree and has a terrible reputation for being a mean girl with a poisonous tongue, but she absolutely doesn't give a shit. This is a charm unique only to her, and she wins over some prominent and significant people because of it. She's such a refreshing and lovable character.

ML is your typical handsome and powerful lead, cold to others and warm only to his beloved (and maybe his grandma). He is a yandere after all. You also understand why he's so callous, as he's lived quite a tragic life so there's bound to be a justifiable amount of angst. However, he's never pushy and overbearing. He and MC are mutually super clingy to each other, even in public. Despite this, he never crosses the boundary with MC while still under the pretense of being siblings.

Both leads are quite passionate and are extremely possessive towards each other, and they don't even hide it. They literally tell each other (and even other people) to stay away from certain people, otherwise they'll go bat-sh*t crazy and end up doing some unimaginable things. And it's mutual. They're unquestionably and wholeheartedly devoted to each other to the point of death.

Overall, I love both leads. They're written well and are consistent throughout.

It also doesn't have a lot of unnecessary drama, and the only villain in this story that's worth mentioning is the sister. She's extremely ambitious and malicious, and will do whatever means to reach her goal.

Other characters, I really like. Most of them, I find their feelings to be very real and rational, as they're quite well-written.


The grandma is an absolutely badass character. She just really loves her grandchildren, especially MC despite knowing that she isn't of the same blood. Later in the story, she is initially really unreconciled when she finds out that MC and ML are in love, which is totally understandable as she's watched them grow up as siblings. However, after MC and ML weather through some life-threatening events with only each other as support, she realizes that there's nothing she could do about their feelings and happily accepts. She loves both of them sincerely and just wants what's best for them.

I also really enjoy characters who were initially supposed to be dumb cannon fodders but redeem themselves after thorough introspection. The shu sister in this is an example. She starts off as greedy and ambitious, but she later on really reflects on herself after certain events teach her a harsh lesson. Her change is also gradual, as old habits die hard after all.


A really good read if you're looking for a light romance with not a lot of intrigue and drama. <<less

MTL completed.

Sickeningly sweet fluffy story. It's bearable on the common sense because both FL and ML knew that they're not related by blood.

I was wondering what happened to her real brother in the first life. No side story about him and that young mischievous monk who messed up her reincarnation cycle. How I wish author could elaborate about them.

I really this take on transmigration. The FL is straightforward and has no qualms about trying to be the so called "virtuous women" of that era just for the sake of pleasing the crowd. She instead go ahead to do and say what she wants for the sake of herself and her loved ones. This is such a refreshing route. Thanks to the translator for translating this and introducing such a great story to us readers!

I finish Reading this on MTL in 2 days and now I can't wait for... more>> the translation to finish for me to reread it.


I love how they have female cannon fodder that are NOT evil all the way to the end. Her eldest sister started out pretty s*upid but I like that the author made her grow up after all the adversity she had to go through. The scene of her beating up the villain OFL was classic. not once but twice!

Her grandmother is also a wonderful character of how a great matriarch in a family is supposed to be! She is strong for her family and loves and plans for the ML and FL and even Siyu so lovingly. She does take a bit of convincing to accept the FL and ML being together at first since have grown up as brother and sister which I think is convincing since it is not conventional. But all good in the end because she does come around and goes back to being that wonderful grandmother waiting to cuddle her great grandchild.

The ML is more fleshed out too in this story. It does say he is good looking but unlike other novels which keeping talking about how good looking the ML is in every single page, this author instead takes the time to explain the hardship the ML had to go through to get where he is. I like how yandere and possessive he is of the FL! (he only want to allow the FL to be recognized by her brother and go back to her real family 3 days before her wedding.... haha)

I found the first few chapters very confusing since it was setting up a strange premise before starting the main story.

Basically, in her past life, our MC was the crippled, but spoiled, daughter of an extremely wealthy, modern-day family. She was preternaturally close with her twin brother, and winds up sacrificing her life for his. After learning about her sacrifice, her brother spends beaucoup bucks and effort to pay an entire group of head monks to transfer all of their carefully cultivated good karma to his dead sister, in order... more>> to ensure she has the best, most blessed and lucky, life possible wherever she winds up being reborn.

Which is how we wind up with our MC succeeding at all things and altering the plot of the novel she wound up in to her favor with no real effort on her part.

She is such a vicious b****, but not a completely dislikable one (though not a completely likable one, either). She's selfish and bratty, and not all that brilliant, but she still winds up on top due to this surplus of luck. Enjoy the schadenfreude of the OG FL failing for absolutely no reason, other than the MC is now the one with the protagonist halo.

This is NOT the story for you if you like fairness or justice, since bad things will happen to good people and POS people will do well. MC is going to be a little sh*** and still win, but it's fine. Read this if you like a bit of mary sue, or like very doting ML's. <<less

I mtled it, fairly readable.

One big point I need to point out is that I like incest stories so I might be bias that's why I like this a lot. But their interactions are very sweet, and the development from sibling to sweetheart is quite 'believable'. The ML never interact with the MC until she transmigrated so no real 'sibling' feelings are there and MC and her original real twin already had an abnormal relationship so it's just her good luck to be able to act on it in this... more>> other world. But bear in mind it's around the 80s chapters for even a kiss to happen. Could be too mushy for some people, I like it though. And their mutual obsessiveness and possessiveness is hot.

The antagonist is pretty entertaining. She tried hard to do her job digging pits for our MC but MC being MC able to slap her everytime to vent our anger. Though sometimes we just want to puke blood because the characters tolerate the antagonist too much even when they know how rotten she is. But at least I love how there's only one consistent antagonist we need to focus on, not a revolving number or braindead cannon fodder.

But in the end, its not a ground breaking novel but if you really like really slow burn incest stories this will be your jam. <<less

It is very bland. A straight shot story of two "siblings" so attached and possessive of one another. The pace is very slow. I gave it an another star just because it is consistent. All the characters are flat. I didn't find any comedy to this as it is boring. The first several chapters started out interesting then turned stale. Reading this far, they are still "siblings" so the intimacy with each other is actually gross. They each know they aren't related but others such as the maids don't know---so... more>> yes the maids are in their right mind to think it is inappropriate! The ML watches his 14 yo "sister" undress and she doesn't mind --- that is beyond sister/brother complex.

I read this far because the rating is high but Im going to drop it now. <<less

The leads got really good chemistry (HOT!)... Their fates were interconnected and the trust for each other was commendable. Also, it also good how they developed their feelings through the years.

I like the straightforwardness of ML and FL, they maybe cruel to their enemies but they never did evil hidden schemes.

... Some villains got second chance while others got terrible ending which was well deserved.

I just wished author wrote about what happened to Yu Xiang's twin brother in the past life. Even tho he was briefly mentioned, he got huge... more>> impact to YX' life. <<less

Speechless...I have been reading all historical novels with mostly FL... and I cannot not write something about this novel. What a great story. I was a little bored first several chapters but after that.... the story is so well written. The characters are all so well portrayed especially the FL and ML. The story itself is ingenious. It’s so different than what I’ve read so far. I adore the FL. I’ve cried, laughed till I cried, mad, etc. I thank you the author and especially the translator for bringing this... more>> to all of us... thank you <<less
