To Be a Heartthrob in a Horror Movie

Description

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

Holographic viewing technology allowed audience members to enter a movie and personally experience it for themselves. Naturally, romance movies were the most popular and well-received, while nobody was interested in horror movies.

Su Min was the first of the viewers to experience a horror movie.

Later–

Malicious Spirit: I dare not scare or frighten my sweetheart…

Su Min: Actually, horror movies aren’t scary at all.

Audience: No, no, no, you are playing in a love movie! (Loudly)

The audience suddenly discovered that the recent rerelease of the horror movie was much better than the original. Furthermore, to everyone’s surprise, the ghost was very sweet…

This is a unique take on "transmigration" where the MC goes to a movie theatre and basically gets inserted into the story as a side character to experience the movie first hand. Technically doesn't sound feasible but well, it's just a story I suppose. Each arc is different and interesting and there's that overarching arc linking MC to ML. I don't consider this a horror story as it's not particularly scary but interesting nonetheless. I like the characters and even the movie characters in each arc. Though...

I wanted to know MC's parents reaction to ML tbh. Too bad that part isn't covered. Also, what exactly happened between MC's roommate and his online friend?

This is my opinion on this novel and have nothing to do with the translation:

I love this novel! I actually hate horror a lot but since this is a BL novel, I decided to give it a try. I saw MC say in the synopsis that: "Actually, horror movies aren’t scary at all." and that he turned the horror movie into a love movie.

I actually read this novel when it was night, thinking that it's alright and it's not that scary at all but I was scared and my heart... more>> keeps beating so fast that I had to continue reading until the ending 'cause the end is supposed to be a happy ending (according to my reading experience). What's good about it is that it doesn't only mainly focus on the romance part of the story but also the horror parts of the "movies" he took part in. Although it doesn't exactly have too detailed descriptions on the gory parts but it made my imagination run wild. The plot is an intertwine of both horror and romance that I thought that I am starting to think that I have some masochist part of me because I was clearly scared so much but I still kept going. It makes me feel scared and feel sweet at the same time.

By the way, I recommend that when people read this, they must read the whole arc (a whole movie plot for the MC) at a time to have the best experience. If you keep stopping at every chapter, you might not experience the emotional roller coaster of the "movie" plot. And also, this review is my opinion. I easily get influenced by emotions so there are people who might not have the same experience as me. I had never watched horror movies and I easily get nightmares from horror movie trailers. If you are a person who don't get scared that easily in horror, you might find this boring. If you usually only watch horror movies and not horror novels, this might be a fresh experience for you and have your imagination work wonders in your mind. I don't know about the others but it might've been because I watch less horror movies or I read less horror novels (and mystery novels) but my mind run wild with this novel.

About their romance part, it might seem abrupt with ML seemingly fall for MC right away but that's the sweet part of it. It's like saying to a reader like me at the start that: "It's alright, ML is here. You don't have to worry about the horror. You have the protector here." Actually, I almost forgot the romance plot of this novel now but the horror parts of the novel is more vivid in my mind. It's like the horror movie plot parts are the main dish while the romance part is the dessert. The appetizer is the connection between MC and ML in real life and in the movie parts. <<less

In fact this novel is quite good.

The horror movies can be seen as a plot in which I feel that the first one had the least participation of MC.
Spoiler

I mean that although MC helped in search of clues, he had less paranormal activities. Only the staircase and the seventh floor. Less interaction with ghosts or monsters.

All the arcs are still interesting.
Spoiler

1st Arc:- University Thriller

2nd Arc:- Desperate Island

3rd Arc:- Death Show

4th Arc:- Last Meal

5th Arc:- In the Prison

6th Arc:- Ghost Ship

7th Arc:- In My Surname

About the big misconception that ML fell in love at first sight, it is totally wrong. Only when you reach the last arc (or the 3rd arc, if you noticed ML's dialogues), do you come to know that ML was a part of MC's past.

Arcs such as the Ghost Ship and Last Meal are very well written. Makes sense to me as well as that the MC has an important part in it (he interacts with ghosts or monsters and seems to take limelight of Protag in Ghost Ship). I'm very supportive of his cousin also. She clearly is a fan of ML-MC cp.

Oh my goodness I'm so soft for the ML.

When I first started reading this the immediate question is, "who is the ML" and "what's the relationship with the MC".

All questions are answered in due time but the ML knows the MC way back when.

... more>> This is such a fluffy gem and when you get to the end you realize all the arcs is just one big movie.

Character development is very good and the arcs are well written but some of the endings made me confused but I attributed that to the mtl.

As a horror fan, some of the arcs plots were good, especially the psychological ones. But I do wish it was a but more detailed byt eh, my personal opinion.

My favorite arc is probably the ghost ship because I just fell in love with the Mc's cousin and her prank on the ML.

Everything is extremely well written and the story flows nicely

11/10

New way to blend the real world and the quick wear/ world hopping genre. There's a nice mystery going on behind the scenes as he tries to figure out who Shen Su (MTL) is. On top of that the mysteries involved in each movie are entertaining (and sometimes gory; the author likes skinning people). In the prison one it mentions how some foreign prisons have stadiums and amusement parks attached and all I can say is not in my country. I've never heard of a prison like that. And the... more>> sudden insertion of a 2 chapter Halloween short story in the middle of the haunted cruise movie was jarring. The ending was satisfying. There wasn't a lot of smut but I have the feeling most Chinese novels will have the smut edited out now due to them cracking down internet webnovels and censoring the f**K out of them.

In some very small ways this reminds me of misplacement game, where the MC is playing a dating game while everyone else is stuck in a horror/ survival game but the scenario the same. Of course, this novel is different, but there are small similarities and if you haven't read it I do recommend, along with a crowd of evil spirits line up to confess, though both stories are ongoing at the moment. <<less

So, I'm not very good at writing reviews, but I gotta say, this story is... how to put it... well I can't seem to remember the exact word, but I do highly recommend it!

You follow Su Min (says Su Shi in raws, but Su Min in summary, then again mtl isn't entirely accurate), who goes through several horror movies, as in experiencing them directly. In every movie, he would meet the ML, who appears as a ghost and the ML naturally helps him along the way, although I personally feel that he doesn't do much other than pulling him out of danger since it seems he can't interfere too much (?). Our MC does most of the work, solving the mystery in the plot of each movie. So far, he manages to reach a successful ending in each movie without dying. Not really descriptive on the gory parts and its not really scary by my standards since I've been getting dosed in dog food from the MC and ML. Even the audience in the novel thinks so too! There are moments that have made me nervous though and I find the plots of each movie interesting.

Not sure if this counts as spoiler so I'll just put it in the box ^ <<less

One of the best horrow genres, surprisingly it is BL too.

So far we are at the first arc. I can't really critique it well unless I finish the first arc but so far the TL is doing a great job. The scenes are suspenseful and it gives you the chills that a horror genre should give. The interactions are quite comedic which is a nice touch, like a spring breeze. It helps diffuse the melancholic atmosphere. Moreover, you have to remember that MC is inside a "typical horror movie" so... more>> there are plotholes that even the MC points out. As a horror enthusiast, I'm looking forward how the author would tie the lose ends. <<less

I've started reading this story at night and let me tell you, shiversss! Every sound I hear outside my room, scratches from the window made by the wind scares me! The translated chapters are enough to hook me right in to read this story and I'll be back later to review it more! Totally recommended tho...

I really love the first arc but I get annoyed eventually by the ML. The idea/concept of every arc is really good, I like the suspense it brings to me. I only get pissed every time the ML appears, it feels like the story is suddenly ruined. Seems the author suddenly remember that it is not only a horror but a danmei.. So to me it feels the MC-ML interaction is kinda off
