This is my first 90’s novel.

I think it’s really interesting! I always love a strong female MC, especially when she starts her own business. She’s not a Mary Sue either; she knows her limits and has disadvantages as well. I love how the story progresses, although I wish for more interactions between her and her children. There is a second ML if you squint, I guess. It focuses more on business though, which I love. There’s romance, but it’s slowly progressing and I’m eager to see it. At where I’m... more>> at, she hasn’t met with the original owner’s (of her body) yet. I’m so looking forward to when they meet. Maybe her ex as well? Just so that they could see how well she’s doing without them now. Also, where can you see all the other translations? I want to read them too! <<less

My first 90's novel.

... more>>

What I like about the leads is that they are decisive. Like when the MC decided to divorce the original's husband, she immediately acted on it. She approached her cousin to help her and immediately picked up her children. If she had been a little late, her children might have been taken as a bargaining chip. It's clear her husband doesn't care for the children and the in-laws only cared about the son. If she hadn't rescued the son, he could have grown up with a Patriarchal views as well, as he's already has a large ego at 3 y/o. While the daughter was being treated like a servant already. By divorcing, breaking all connections to family except for the third brother (cousin) and moving to another city, she was able to create a better life for her and her children.

I love the ML. He was decisive as well. Although he knows he can't pursue her yet because of his past, he is very honest with her and always acts like a secret bodyguard. He cleaned his name before openly pursuing her and it's very sweet. I like that she's very upfront and accepted him immediately. Even her children immediately accepted him as Dad and forgot about their real father who doesn't care about them.

Anyway, the real dad is a scum. In the ending, the mistress saw the MC and saw how she's pretty, has a good partner and 3 children, while her life is not very good. I just wish the ex-husband and in-laws also saw her and see how good her and her children's lives are.


There's not much drama but is a good story. A little Mary Sue. But has the best ML and I would like to get myself a third brother please. He's the real hero in this story. The MC won't escape her relatives without this cousin. He's tyrannical, but also very supportive and filial. The MC did not encourage others to divorce. She only encouraged her sister because the sister has a very bad life. Sister's husband has a pregnant mistress, her son is very ill and might die, her daughter is being treated like an ox. Sister approached MC and asked for help. Again, third brother solved everything and MC took her sister with her and taught her how to be her own woman and gave her means to support herself and her children.

The MC's gold finger comes from her knowledge of properly endorsing her products. That's how the company grew. Through advertisements. So it's realistic, in a way. She also helps those who asks her how she does business, thus empowering these women. It's a little different from other transmigrating novels, I think because it's set in the 90's. It's modern and at the same time, the society is so backward, old-fashioned. <<less

My only compliant is that the translator has broken up 6 chapters into 22 chapters. I assume this is to speed out releases, I thought the original author just wrote super short awkwardly ended chapters. It was only when I went to the raws and MTL them I realized what was going on. The story flows much better as it was originally intended. My recommendation is to ignore this translation until there is a few dozen "chapters" to read at a time so you can read two or three chapters... more>> as the author intended. <<less

I was supposed to rate it 4.5 but I realized that this isnt your usual transmigration story, most trnasmigration story here either takes place in ancient china or another 20th century modern, interstellar. This is the first one I encounter 1990's it was quite a new experience for me. I read it in one sitting from 7 pm to 1 am.

Of course some parts made me uninterested but it was only because I'm still new to 1990's era. This was great, if it werent then I wouldn't be able to... more>> finish it in one sitting and wouldn't be reviewing it right now. Most of you have probably read my reviews on bl and other shoujo romance.

I really recommend this novel. Whenever fuyu neko releases a new novel I would immediately read it and if I like it then I would machine translate it. I think there's only one novel that she translates that I dont read. Getting back to the review, THIS ONE REALLY SHOWS EMPOWERMENT TO WOMEN.

It's not bias to women because it also shows the flaws and everything

I like how the authordidnt beautify the female lead and inteadshowed the process of how she thinned and how she cleared the spot on her face


The ml


I like how the ML isnt the usual overbearing president that is otherworldly handsome, although he is handsome but it didn'tover shadowed his character


All characters have flaws and not one dimensional. Its cute how I imagien the story as I read it, retro style, old school, ohhh the good old days <<less

Good novel! Not too dramatic but since we're modernized and not familiar with the 90's in China, you can be super biased. So you'll get really sad cuz of daughters being sold for money. Original host is very pitiful. I'm glad FL fulfilled her wishes and gave her 2 children a good life and a grand wedding that she never had so her relatives can finally notice her. Since she's just a daughter no one paied attention to her.

Karma is a b*tch. The ex-husband and his "moonlight" got bad endings.


Ya'll, I love how the FL swiftly destroyed their future careers in just a couple of chapters. She took all his money/assets/properties and had her 3rd cousin to be in the same career path and suppressed him all sides. She also spread their pictures to the girl's parents and job so she doesn't get her position in the future. I was kinda sad how the novel FL was just gone like that. She got aborted and LJJ, the novel FL's mother damaged her body so she can't get preggo anymore and the ex is a SCUM all the way. He ended up getting together someone 10 yrs older than him SMH. LJJ got arrested!!


FL is straightforward and very generous. She helps girls who needs an escape from the backwards thinking and helping her friends with their divorce. She's not the damsel in distress kind of girl. I mean she got help in someway but everything was so smooth sailing. The problems that just popped up was because of her parents and ex was thinking of trying to take away her son


(ended up getting another younger girl pregnant so he forgot about it.)


. She gets sad a lot since her parents from the original world are still alive :C

ML is cute and caring. He's the rare type of species in that era. Since first hand witnessing his family crumbling, he vowed he'll do better. Not how other people let other people's nasty behavior influence him. He didn't really appear until later in the novel and he pursued her really quickly cuz she said how they're both old enough and didn't do the "you chase me, I chase you." BS.

The antagonists come and go. Like 1 chapter and they poof. Its a really good read to pass time! Honestly the novel picture best describes the whole novel cuz damn, everything went smooth sailing and she just throws money everywhere lmfao. 10/10.

He also the owner of the largest Security Company in the country (when his kids became adult, the company already became No.1 in the world with it's member were all ex soldier, some were ex-soldier who disability)

MC kids were adorable. The eldest daughter was obedient and serious girl, the younger son was.... well, just a baby that need to coaxing (and threated cuz often making MC headache in her early periode of moving + in diet program). In the end he became a soldier in his dad old camp cuz of broken heart. The youngest son whose born wit ML are in the end of story became a HIpHOP dancer idol (at this time very likely already in 2010's era).

FL is the b*tch. She's the best b*tch. If she were to be transmigrated/reincarnated villainess, she would be way more savage and ruthless than the original--but still survive the execution and punishment.

She's kind to the children, but not excessively. The children have good behaviour, not too unruly, but they are children. Sometimes they could be unreasonable and annoying, I find myself want to ass whoop that brat.

I have only read until there. No sign of ML's appearance yet. She's still focusing on having a better life for her family, and... more>> the narrative is all about money management. If you want to read full fledged romance from the start, maybe this one is not for you.

Oh and I feel it's necessary to mention FL's third cousin. He's awesome.

Translation is also very enjoyable. <<less

I absolutely love this story. There is zero bullshit, every character is mature, all actions are reasonable and there is no mindless antagonists. Sure, they're petty and selfish, but they make sense. Also, the main leads are good people who reach out to help others, which is a plus for me.

And I actually ship the main couple! The romance in novels (that I read) usually is just some cute interactions for fun, but I really wanted these two to get together and I was not disappointed, although I would've liked... more>> to see more interaction between the characters and less about management (which was ridiculously smooth). <<less

I have mixed feelings about this novel. It has its pros and cons. As the story progresses, you may begin to become bored since it focuses more on the mc's road to becoming a successful businesswoman. She cares about her children, but she doesn't really interact with them much once her business begins to grow. However, that's what makes this novel more realistic. She's a single mom who decided to open a business to raise her children, but ends up hiring a nanny to raise her children when life became... more>> too busy and stressful. She's pretty normal compared to other MCs who have golden halos and there's hardly any drama, besides the greedy people in this novel. Her family sucks, but that doesn't make her unique because almost all the families mentioned are equally horrible. The ML is a really great and lovable character despite his fierce appearance. The development of their relationship was natural and there was no "love at first sight" which is a good thing. <<less

This story has really good world-building plot, how the MC restarts her life in another city with her two children, and how she started her own business, met both the wrong and right person, and really reflect the society. There's not much conflict in the story but I like how the issues are not exaggerated rather it likely resembled the society in rl. Definitely a recommended read. Oh, it's more of a josei romance hehe.

This is one of the best slice of life I have ever read. Heck, it may not even be a "slice of life", this is life with the whole package of real-life problems included.

I love how "4D" this novel feels. I learned a lot of this while reading MC's journey. Clothing business, the importance of branding, networking, family relationships, real estate, parenting, etc...

I love how each character feels alive as if they were my own neighbors. Their life and struggles are so real I felt almost too attacked by it... more>> lol.

Cheating men, neuropathic men, mistress, and how often is easy for a person to change into someone completely unrecognizable.

How everything has a double meaning like in real life. People always calculate their own advantages first, and that alone can change the perspective of a person.

Every new information of the story is introduced using many mundane events like a school reunion, gossiping housewives, and personal informant- Uhm... Well, that's not so normal. Doesn't matter, what I want to say is that I also really love the flow of the story.

MC has her problems, but other characters also have their own issues. And MC, if possible, always lend a hand. From helping many women stuck in a sticky situation similar to her's, to help other people by giving some business counseling. Also! She's a great matchmaker~

ML is such a considerate man he's like a clear stream in MC's life.

I really like a lot of things in this novel lol. It may get too repetitive, but I have to stress this point. Don't let yourself get turned away by some over-critical reviews.

This novel is a must-read.

The most authentic slice of life I have personally ever laid my eyes upon. <<less

The translation of the novel is very good. I like how the story gets straight to leaving her husband instead of dragging the story too long on that part. MC isn't too unreasonable so far as she's just trying to protect herself and her children, and in that process get back at her ex-husband for all the crap he's done to them. Her ex-husband deserved it. Since nobody will be on her side, even her family, she only did what she needed to.

She eventually starts a new life while trying... more>> to learn how to handle having two children. It's going to be an interesting journey, BUT the journey after she left her husband is moving very, very slowly. Each chapter is basically a step by step explanation of how she's looking for a place to rent, a place for school, etc. It's so slow.

Edit: While I had previous enjoyed the novel at the start, I have found it very hard to pick it up again as it has become very boring with how slow and uneventful the chapters have become... <<less

I don't usually read slice of life novels as I get bored easily when nothing major happens in a story. But I read this novel to the end not once but twice. The first time was a long time ago that I forgot a lot of the plot points, but managed to recall as I read on. I never felt bored reading this even on my second read so that should say something, right?

The story is pretty realistic considering that it's a transmigration novel. And while the MC does have... more>> a golden finger through her knowledge of future economic developments, her knowledge is not always reliable as the book she transmigrated into does not exactly mirror her old reality. The MC makes the best of her advantages and works hard not only for herself but also for the children she had gained through the transmigration. She isn't reckless in her endeavors. Instead she acts rather prudently as she has to consider her options and the children. This is also why her relationship with the ML is satisfying to read. The two are very considerate of and supportive towards each other which makes their relationship a bit special, especially when you consider how many people have divorced in this novel.

There are also some social issues addressed in this novel, mainly Chinese society's preference towards a male heir and the resulting neglect/abuse towards daughters, complicated family dynamics and the difference in treatment of people based on their wealth.

People who like more mature slice of life stories might consider picking up this novel. <<less

Counterintuitively, the story starts to go downhill once the prologue arc is over and she starts up her own business.

The last ~20 chapters have been some of the worst slog in my life. It was actually so bad that I cut my lunch break short to go back to my data analytics job.

Heartwarming, cute, and inspirational novel.

The main character (mc) transmigrated into a novel she finished reading as the wife of a somewhat rich but scum cheating husband. Used her intelligence and connections to obtain most of the money & property shared between their husband and wife, then happily divorced. MC took her two young children and started over in another city. Successfully started a business, became a billionaire, then met a handsome, mature, and caring veteran to be her husband.


A very easy-going novel, some drama, and cute scenes, no antsy plots.

Of course, the original female lead and scum husband got what they deserved in the end. <<less

It's pretty average.

After MC divorces his cheating husband and moves to the new city, that's where everything becomes boring and really slow. I skipped a lot, especially when he was buying the apartment, I couldn't care less about the size, hehe. The kids are very cute, but it's not enough for me. The novel felt a little bland, but maybe it's just my preference of humor.


I thought we don't have a male lead here, but after reading some of the comments there was actually one, maybe he'll appear later. So, for those who immediately want to read for romance, unless you can bear reading through her preparing of becoming successful, maybe you should look for another novel.

Well coming back and seeing so many good reviews feel good.

I have read this novel when first updated on nu, at that time I thought many won't like it as it has very less romance but I enjoyed it.

Novel is more like slice of life. It's fun to read novels with less romance and more on FL becoming stronger by her own efforts.

At start her son was a bear child, used to roll on floor. MC would left him like that cough gave me tricks on how to handle bear... more>> niece...

Her daughter at start always have less self esteem, it was heartwarming to see her growing up as a confident woman.

Funny tidbit, both children of MC married gentle personality partners, I guess maybe MC was "domineering" so both of them went for gentle ones.

MC son got heartbroken as he has hidden his origins and the girl went for rich guy. When that girl came back, knowing MC son is rich, tried to get back with him plus telling son to get MC clothing company, how could he let his sister take away. But son was all grown up and he told her it's his mom choice and he supports his sister.. MC son's wife was adorable one and she was like everything is good but they have so much money. <<less

Modern MC transmigrated to the 90's. Divorced her husband and takes away half of his properties. Goes somewhere to start clothing business. Whats so funny about this is that she helped couple of women to have divorce. I mean, in that era men are more valued than women, its very sad how your parent can treat you like a merchandize just to make sure their son will have a good life.

The MC is not annoying, she's the non bullsh*t type. I like her, I also like the ml, though he is not the best but he is still good in my criteria. The three children had a good life.

A single parent story!!

And it's done......... er in a good 90s way! (tho I dunno anything about 90s china).

A big portion of the story is about business, from small clothing store to mega billioner. From an ugly no money (only alimony) short single mother to a fantastic pretty (dont ask me how, but we all know this kind of novel MC cannot be ugly, tanned and short) strong business woman.

The funny thing is almost all women there have trouble with derailed cheating husband or rotten parents. Girl power is real... more>> here! <<less

It was a nice story.

The translation is good and smooth to read.

The MC is very logical and smart but it wasn't just a smooth ride since she was just as ordinary as everyone else's, which is relatable. She is hard-working and tried her best. She is never someone who gets pushed around and she always pays her dues. I prefer that rather than being frustrated with another Mary Sue, who is supposed to be good at everything yet always needs a man to arrive at the right moment and protect... more>> her instead.

Well, she found herself a fair share of capable men (1st her xthug cousin and then the xsoldier with a bad reputation - which makes me think if the author has a certain type🤔) but she didn't completely rely on them.

The best part is that all her acts of revenge are satisfying. She doesn't need to publicly embarrassed people,.... wait,... actually she does but they don't have to necessarily know that she was the culprit. *evil laugh*

I have a lot on my mind these days so I ended up binge reading almost 200 chapters overnight. Yes I need to record this. It is both my shame and my joy. <<less
