Transmigrated into a Heartthrob Novel and Went OOC


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

Fang Chaozhou found himself transmigrating into a Danmei novel, as a character who had the exact same name as himself. He became the Second Brother of the Protagonist and he had no clue who the ML was.

In the original book, Fang Chaozhou loves the Protagonist and is madly in love with his Junior Brother; as he blocks swords for him, kills monsters for him, and bangs against any wall for him.

And now…

Fang Chaozhou: Forget it, there are too many suitors, I’d better wash up and sleep.

Since Fang Chaozhou gave up on pursuing his Junior Brother, the Protagonist’s other suitors saw that Fang Chaozhou had become enlightened. They became good friends with him, sharing their little secrets with him from time to time.

Suitor No. 1: Last time I picked celestial grass for Junior Brother and he said thank you.

Fang Chaozhou (surprised): Junior Brother must like you!

Suitor No. 2: Junior Brother went on a mission with me last time, and asked me to pay attention to my safety.

Fang Chaozhou (confirming): He absolutely likes you, as he didn’t run away.

Suitor No. 3: His clothes were torn when he fought the monster last time. I lent him my coat, but he didn’t want it.

Fang Chaozhou (touching his chin): I’m sure it must be because he likes you. He’s too shy.

Later, the Junior Brother came to his door.

His Junior Brother who has a beautiful face coldly asks: Second Brother, someone has been spreading rumors every day that I like others, does this mean he likes me?

Fang Chaozhou coughed twice: Junior Brother, if you have something to say, can you untie the immortal rope on my body first?

I'm reading the TLs so I'm only at c8, but I'm already looking forward to more chapters. The main thing that makes this MC unique and memorable to me is

his fake inability to get it up, which somehow turns into a major plot point lmao

This is all about romance. MC has transmigrated from modern times to a cultivation novel which he was reading halfway through and became the second brother of the protag aka ML.

ML was supposed to have a harem of creeps who likes him just bcuz of his face and the guy MC transmigrated into was one of the harem members who was actually genuine about him and he pretty much died for the protag. However, when MC crossed he kept avoiding ML at all cost but still ended up being entangled... more>> with him.

The guys who supposedly liked ML all fell for our MC bcuz of his personality/ just the way he acts I guess.

Harem members include:


sect master Zhongli Yueshi

A cold aloof guy who only likes the color white. He was the protags parents' friend. When his parents died he kind of led him into the way of cultivation/raised him. He tried to make MC and ML apart from each other. In order to do that he made ML go far way to cultivate and let MC stay by his side to keep his eyes on him. He lives on a place that like Laputa. It's in the sky 😂😂

Only him and his cat/tiger lives in that huge floating island. So when he spends time with MC he unintentionally grows on him.

I really liked him and MC together. But I know he can't be with him and my heart shattered just thinking about it. I wanted author to give him a chance with MC in another world or timeline 😭

Demonic sect master Li Yiye

A pervert who has severe OCD. He liked ML just cuz he was too beautiful and wanted to make him his so he kidnapped him and MC got caught with him. He misunderstood MC liked him and on the way he developed feelings for him.

He even proposed to him in front of the whole world lmao.

Song LianYi

A trap. Literally. He literally dresses up as a woman bcuz he was raised in a sect where only women can enter. His mother is the sect master.

In the novel he kept trying to do perverted things to ML but always ended up failing. In this round he ended up doing those things to MC. He still failed anyway and fell in love with MC.

Li Zhu (Li Yiye's son)

A brat who likes to read fanfiction about himself and ML (in the novel)

He still liked to read fanfictions in the start of the novel and threatens MC to make him an item with the ml. He thought MC was gonna be his stepmother bcuz his dad was chasing him lmao. He realizes his feelings waayy in the end of latter half of the novel. It was too late then.


Also there's a very shocking plot twist in the end.

There was so little fight scenes. Even tho the body MC was in supposed to be strong we don't really get to see that demonstrated further.

The extras were cute as well. The first extra broke me and it was about sect master 😭😭

Overall it was an interesting read. Not the best, but also not that bad either. If you could let slide some things, it's actually a good novel. I bingeread in like 2 or 3 days. <<less

I MTLed this because I am impatient haha. But it was actually not that hard to read. I really liked the development of the characters. I did get attached to one of the potential ML and was sad about that. There is a harem tag which might turn off others. But I can assure you it isn't one where MC is indecisive. He will realize his feelings later on, though it does take a while.

The plot was much better than I thought. It has some hidden plot twists that kinda... more>> differentiate itself from other typical novels. I did read the spoilers in the forums before reading. Some people said the martial ancestor is lowkey creepy, but I didn't think so. He feels more like a repressed ancestor haha.

Although the MC and ML's romance didn't develop until much later in the novel, I quite liked the development and chemistry between the two.

And lastly, there a quite a few funny misunderstandings that build up haha. Not just between the MC and ML, but also from others as well. Haha especially the one where MC lies about being impotent lol

Will officially rereview this when the english translations are completed <<less

There’s no deep cultivation plot here and the story really focuses on the development of MC, ML, and other “suitors” but they still stayed true to the setting.

I loved the characters even with all their glaring flaws. I really applaud the author for their consistency with the character set-up, from the frustrating MC’s salted fish style to the comedic block-headedness of Liu Zhu (?). This book made me experience second-hand embarrassment at every other turn along with stomachache for the laughter that will sucker punch you out of the left... more>> field.


but, and I think a lot of reader has the same wish, and that is for ML’s master to get an alternative ending with our MC. I mean, how he treated MC leaves a lot to be desired but still, he was learning slowly in the middle on how to treat him better. Unfortunately, MC’s heart has no space for another. The first extra chapter dedicated to him was just plain heartbreaking and I kinda just wanna ask the author “Why???” Give me an AU instead 😭


4.5 ⭐️ The current rating is too low so I rounded it up. <<less

I loved it. It has a comedic undertone. Sometimes, I feel like the characters are s*upid but in a funny/ silly way. The story is beyond the written synopsis above so better read.

... more>>

I felt that this is 1vs1 even if there is harem tag and I didn't want it to be otherwise. But I liked that other characters too that I wished they have a separate ending. You know maybe an extra parallel universe type of ending maybe.... I dont know. Especially for the Shizun, I was just hoping he has an extra chapter where he managed to get the MC. Good thing nobody died too. The characters are really engaging. I was really rooting for all the suitors.

I enjoyed the novel a lot because it has a nice pace and the romance is actually really good, it’s a natural progression. It has plenty of funny moments too.

For anyone wondering about the harem tag


as suggested by the novel description there’s only one real ML, but there are plenty of interactions with the other candidates.

I personally really liked one of the candidates, I hoped he could get a HE too but it’s inevitable. Still it was really heartbreaking

I love it. Got hooked on it and kept reading nonstop for days. Somehow, it makes the usual tropes lively and interesting, and made me care for the characters.

I thought MC was a bit annoying at first as he's too salted fish at times, but I changed my mind. I can see why the characters started liking MC, even if it started from ridiculous circumstances. He's refreshing and rather lively when he wants to be, easygoing, good tempered (unless you bully him) and a kind, gentle person who doesn't bear... more>> grudges.

The best part about this novel is the Uno reverse 'harem', including the ML and MC's relationship. I honestly didn't expect so many feels after this, especially regarding the sect master.


My heart broke for him at the end. I had so many feels when he started gaining more emotions during his time with the MC, especially when MC was stuck in the puppet body as a kid and he had to take care of him. Compared to raising the ML who's similarly independent, cold and levelheaded, it's inevitable that he will experience many more human emotions with the MC's antics, going from frustration to care to unwittingly becoming less of a lonely, emotionless man. Ugh I wanna cry. I still support my main cp but the sect master is really my favourite.


I started out disliking some of the harem guys but started feeling sad for them in the end. It's a treat to read their gradually changing mindsets and read between the lines for their growing feelings. They first chased after the ML for his face, then went after MC for various reasons, and unknowingly ended up catching feelings for the MC, only to get rejected.

The MC and ML have a surprise plot twist to their relationship too at the very end, which I won't spoil. But I'll just say that the entire story is surprisingly bittersweet and sad when it wants to be. Also, while there isn't real smut, there's a lot of ust between the MC and ML which makes up for it. <<less

Since there are not many chapters out, I MTL'ed the raws, and it was pretty easy to understand. I liked the novel, there were many sweet and funny moments, and I liked a lot of the characters (although some of them were s*upid). I was also kinda sad that MC didn't end up with the master, since he was one of my favorites. Other than that it was nice.

So far, I think this is good. It's pretty funny and the story is not bad. I could continue reading this for sure.

There are two problems I have with this story though. One of them is that the MC's salted fish attitude so far is... a little annoying?

... more>>

Like. As one of the previous reviewers said, the original was supposed to be quite strong for their age group but it doesn't show in MC at all. And that's... A waste? He supposedly inherited all the original's skills and yet he can barely do anything. Always has to get saved by someone else. Basically. I kinda wanted him to at least be able to fight for himself sometimes even though he wants to be a salted fish. I don't think he was very successful at being one either way just because he keeps getting involved in things. I thought he would at least think he would be safer and have more free time to do what he wanted if he had at least tried and had grown a bit stronger. So that's one thing that bothered me.


Also, the main couple:


I know this is going to be 1v1 despite the harem tag and that's why I'm reading this but I personally prefer the Master with MC so far. Like, at this point in the story there's not much emotional or even physical development between the MC and ML yet so I guess that's why I don't think they actually fit well together? I think the Master at least would treat him very well. I saw some other reviews hinting that they parted on a bad note and now I'm scared to read further. I really do like the Master character a lot. I think he's kinda cute actually.


All in all, I still think it's a pretty good light-read-on-the-side type of story. Nothing too serious that it makes you think a lot and has some comedy, which is mostly due to the MC's personality. It's a pretty cute story so far. Will continue reading and edit this review when I'm done. Maybe. <<less

I mean I understand comedic value but basically a lot of people around him are dumb and like to rope him into bad situations that move the plot and romance, which is fine, but like all the time. Ya know if you find that entertaining which a lot of people seem to, then uh yes go for it. For me, everything/one else is just too dumb imo - not for me.

I'm so sad this isn't seme protagonist or reversible.

This is hilarious though hahaha but I really wish MC wasn't so salted fish. Like I like the salted fish character setting, but I wish he tried at least a bit harder to be strong for the sake of his junior disciples at least! He gets good resources thrown to him but only whines and cries smh. But his character is super funny lol, eg. When he's comfortable during papapa he'll take out a spiritual fruit to eat in the midst of... more>> doing it.

I also like that MC's relationships are all formed very normally, like it's not as if people just suddenly fall in love with him. Sure some of it is abrupt, but no more so than in the original story.


My ship is with Master!!! So sad :' (Quite honestly, other than Master, they all suck. None of them really care about MC, including ML. So many times he coerces MC and steals tofu. And Master must feel so uncomfortable given their parting, sigh I'm gonna imagine they got together in a parallel world :' (


But I *really* hate the development later on that brought about the physical relationship.


MC got amnesia but he needed to dual cultivate (you know what I'm talking about, he needs that essence of a water spiritual root) and goes to find ML. ML actually knows it's MC but MC totally doesn't remember him, and they papapa many many times. I'm not necessarily blaming ML (well, I do think what he's doing is dumb), I just hate this kind of development the most. So forced, when clearly MC didn't actually like ML. And not just because so many people would entangle with ML, you can tell MC genuinely didn't have romantic feelings.
