I just wanted to bash male lead's head. He is so forceful with MC that he doesn't even treats MC as an individual, he manipulates the situation and Mc's thoughts and doesn't accept his refusals and decisions. He keeps forcing MC, acting all reasonable and respectable, till MC doesn't accept Ml's opinions. And the suffocating part is that 27 year old man doesn't even realise that what he is doing is contemptible. He is disgustingly hypocrite. If MC owes ML debt, then does that mean he must do everything ML... more>> says and wants him to do. Even method of paying debts must be selected by Ml. He acts as if he owns MC. <<less

the best thing about this story is the food. I was so hungry after reading it. other than that, it was a pretty generic entertainment circle story. the author seems to know more about food than show biz and the descriptions were enough to make the mouth water, though there wasn't a lot of actual cooking descriptions, just food p*rn. as for the characters....

the MC started out with a normal IQ but as soon as the ML came into play he became a s*upid and naive small animal. even though... more>> he was 30 in his past life and a successful chef with some fame, he was also a virgin who had no time for love (apparently there are a lot of 30-40 year old male virgins in China, since every reborn idiot MC is always a virgin and acts like they have no life experience despite their age).

this has one of those rich, domineering OP ML who insults the MCs intelligence, calling him s*upid and belittling him while treating him as a helpless child on the one hand and pampering him and treating him like a beloved pet on the other. it gets a little better once they get together but not by much. if you don't like couples with very one sided power structure i'd suggest not reading this.

this is also a slow burn romance with little to no smut. the MC doesn't even realize he feels anything for the ML (other than fear than grateful) until chapter 90-something and there's only 141 chapters to the story. over all the story wasn't too bad though the MC's drop in intelligence made me grit my teeth more that once. it was also nice to read about an actor who gets to live at the end of some of his movies, rather than ones that die over and over again (or go crazy, or live alone in pain the rest of their lives, or turn out the be serial killers).

the whole story followed the usual entertainment formula and the ending was sweet and predictable. there's nothing really new in this story except the food and there were some unanswered questions
Spoiler

like why he was reborn and how he conveniently died in the first place. there was a build up to make it look like his death might not have been an accident but then that plot line just disappeared

Nice, but boring.

MC is a good cook and he acts well. Everyone loves him. ML is a boss and a good dad. They get together. MC makes everyone fat. The end.

Good enough story if you're trying to pass the time. The food and the scenes where MC is acting is really good.

If you want a good relationship dynamics from MC and ML, turn around and walk away. ML is really suffocating and contemptible. He isn't an as*hole like the MLs dog-blood stories but that I don't know why MC really liked ML. He is very demeaning towards MC to the point that it becomes disgusting and he doesn't even become aware of it.

TL;DR: If you want MC wows everyone with... more>> food and stories about MC in entertainment circles, you might like this.

Those who are in it for the relationship, take it with a grain of salt. I hate it when the ML in BL stories are so demeaning of the "uke"/"shou". <<less

Found this one to be entertaining. MC, an award winning brilliant chef dies and wakes up in the body of a small-time minor actor with the same name in the same world. There is no explanation to why and how he got inside the other person but ehhh this is common in most transmigration stories. MC is a natural actor + his food is enough to let everyone become his friend lmao. ML at first appears as cold and domineering but is actually gentle and patient. Story - 5/5. T/L... more>> - 5/5 <<less

Food and Fluff. I can't ask for more. Sweet slice of life with some face slapping interspersed but no conflicts spread over tens of chapters to make the reader morose.

Good stuff!

Well, I came back to this story after dropping it once and I tried to give it another go again. Here's what I think about this novel.

When you're reading this novel from the perspective of a fluff reader, then yes it's your stuff. It has everything from family fluff, friendship fluff and romance fluff.

But when you're reading this novel from an outsider's perspective, this novel is quite problematic, for lack of suitable wording.

You see, our MC is a tough orphan whom you couldn't help but feel respect for. He's hard... more>> working, tenacious, resourceful, and is still a good person even if the winds tried to break him. He's also quite vengeful and petty in a cute way but he's reasonable and have a good head on his shoulders. He's a great template for a protagonist.

I have nothing to say about the ML, though 🙄 but also much less for the side characters who served as friends and foes.

It's like the author puts so much effort in the MC's template that they forgot about the pillars that surrounded the MC's protagonist halo.

The ML is the type I disliked the most. He didn't hurt the MC, but the manipulation behind the money and roses was... Worrying. From his background alone you can see that he IS incapable of distinguishing between love or sense of belonging.

His son is a tool for him to seize the family property who might become a lazy, spoiled and fat second-generation waste who couldn't control his greed well because his father never taught him self-control. His lover is his debtor whom he basically abducts and forces into cohabitation. He called it 'boiling a frog in warm water', but I just felt sad for the MC when he still forces his tired body to cook for his creditor for the sake of offsetting 1000 yuan from his debt each meal, even if he likes cooking so much.

The MC's friends and fans are more like his plastic followers who are in for the food. There's no real sense of friendship here, since even at the very beginning of this story, his very first follower of the story is not conquered by his personality, but by his cooking. Later friendships that the MC had also came from this route. It's kinda bleak, to be honest.

And let's talk about the foes. They're depicted as self-serving, irredeemable villains to make the protagonists shines brighter. Some even became villains for the pettiest, smallest stuff you can think of. I can't help but think that they're written just for the drama. There's nothing new if you've read a few entertainment circle stories here.

I do understand that this story is a bouquet of food p*rn, but there's no genuine relationships here. The story is fluffy, yes. But when you see the undercurrents, it's a worrying entertainment circle story with a romantic subplot.

I ended up dropping the story again when I reached 'the fat arc'. At that point I can't bear to continue because the MC has forgotten his original goal, which was to become an independent man with savings and a nice little restaurant to occupy his days after repaying his debts.

I realized that the MC has changed into someone who just wanted to please everyone. He could've been great even without the ML, because he's quite talented in acting and if that doesn't work he could've opened a little restaurant from the leftover money from acting. He could've still pay off his debt and live freely since the food business is a very profitable business, but he ended up with a manipulative lover and a sticky toddler that is forced on him. <<less

I'm so sorry, but I really can't take it anymore. I hate this type of ML the most, he kept forcing himself on the MC. And another thing is, MC himself is obviously reluctant to do things for ML, and he's also kind of s*upid to be honest.

Anyway, I really can't continue anymore.

still at the beginning of the story but the ML already irked me off

the romance plot is overdone, it's similar to another hundreds BG overbearing president in entertainment industry novel

ML isn't attractive for me. He is basic, boring, pushy, and selfish. His archetype must've been the funny sarcastic ML but failed already in the beginning cause he just came across as annoying.

i think im gonna skip all the romance and just read the career plot only.

Not a novel that's trying to make itself more serious than it is. A member of the thousands of other novels living in the fluff tag, tropes and all. Good read for food p*rn, which is the real reason we're here lol. Shoutout to the hardworking translator who includes example pictures!

It's an okay novel if you are okay with imbalanced power dynamics in relationships and trope-y characters.

The ML is the typical overbearing president gong, the MC is the typical naive s*upid shou. The drama is all dealt with pretty fast and in a typical OP way for a BL novel like this (thanks to the all powerful perfect ML with no weaknesses).

It was pretty funny at times, especially when everyone around the MC fought over his godly food.

The story is enjoyable but it's pretty ridiculous how everyone acts like MC is the best chef that they've ever seen. As if he is the only one who is able to cook at such a high level and no one else has the ability to do so as well. And that doesn't make sense since the majority of the people around him are wealthy celebs, wealthy businessmen, and other giants in the entertainment industry. In other words, people with the money and connections to eat high quality food made... more>> by a professional. Yet they act like they never have and never will eat such amazing food ever again. If this novel had a similar setting to Film Emperor's Daily Live Cooking Broadcast, in which centuries had passed and due to the planet's destruction, they lost centuries of knowledge, then their reactions would make sense. But that's not the setting. Also, ML abuses his power and position in the beginning of his relationship with MC. That was annoying. MC is also kinda dense, but we'll ignore that, he makes up for it by being proactive and straight forward. It was a nice casual read but not a favorite and probably not something I would read again. <<less

After reading a horror novel I came here for two things:

✿ Being tortured with food p*rn

✿ Being SMOTHERED in fluff

... more>> (@[email protected]) But, I was naive and not only have I got an adorable bun's shenanigans, I was blinded and BURIED in multiple CP Dog Food!.。*♡◍✧*└ (՞▽՞ └)

(~ ̄³ ̄) ~ Leaving my mark here to binge read later~

P.S: I'm pretty sure it was a bit obvious that this novel is a light read so certain tropes, cliche moments and/or characteristics really shouldn't used as material to hate this novel. ╮ (. ❛ ᴗ ❛.) ╭ <<less
