Transmigrating into the Male Supporting Character’s Ex-wife


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

Ruan Jiu Jiu transmigrated into a rebirth novel, in which the female lead in her past life had an unattainable love, a white moonlight. In the novel, the white moonlight Cheng Jun was a hollow character with a pretty face but zero accomplishments, and with his cold personality was like a frigid beauty; an empty flower vase. Meanwhile, Ruan Jiu Jiu transmigrated into Cheng Jun’s ex-wife, an evil, stuck-up, female side character.

When Ruan Jiu Jiu transmigrated over, a divorce agreement was placed on the table. Cheng Jun, wet from the rain, ate a bowl of unhealthy instant noodles. Seeing that beautiful, emotionless face, Ruan Jiu Jiu suddenly couldn’t take it anymore and said that she’d wait until tomorrow to reconsider the divorce.


Ruan Jiu Jiu: Who said that he’s an idiot? Who said that he’s frigid? You’re trolling (╯‵□′)╯︵┻━┻

It was a pleasant read with typical beautiful and handsome leads.

Might have missed something but


Why was there a need for a contract marriage in the first place? How can she be sure that she won't end up in her previous life?


Read too many c-novels where


Husband does not care about son or see son as a competition for wife's affections. The kid speaks in an overly mature way - though I liked how the cardboard box becomes his safe place. The foodie never gains weight.

It was good at first but somehow all went downhill after ML confessed! ML is so unromantic and dense, and keeps saying s*upid extreme low EQ boorish dickiness that is pretty insulting to MC. I don’t see how that was funny, cute or charming. ML is just a fail. Meanwhile, FL acts like too much of a prude even after she agreed to make a go at it. OMG he tried to hold my hand! Acts like she’s been shocked! Totally don’t get why he loves her other than she... more>> can cook for him and basically babies him like his mom. Rolls eye and finally dropped story. Translation also got much worse and simplistic after it switched translator. <<less

This was cute as hell.

The premise is similar to other transmigration into a book stories but the ML and FL definitely make this work distinctive because they're so cute and funny together!

The ML has my heart because he's sensitive and caring at heart but will always say or do obtuse things because he's either too lazy to care or absolutely clueless. Lol like he's the guy where after he catches the FL in a swoon-worthy way will comment that she's heavy and ruin the moment. Him and the FL cutely... more>> bicker all the time because he's always putting his foot in his mouth.

Later when he wants to court the FL he ends up reading all these dating guides and that backfires on him in the funniest way possible.

I also like that while we see him develop as a person he never changes the essence of who he is. He's still mouthy until the end lol. The FL is cool. She's beautiful and talented, independent, and initially a little closed off because she's afraid of getting hurt but despite that the ML eventually wheedles his way into her heart with his pitiful puppy act. The way she deals with the pests in their lives is refreshing too. Some people just need to be scolded. The ML's employees/friends are hilarious and I love that this one friend of his always managed to c*ckblock him for like more than half the story with his horrible timing.

The same friend also planned to send the couple a resort trip by mailing the FL some coupon saying she won a sweepstakes. He tells the ML and gets his hopes up only for the FL not to invite him lol. To rectify the situation, the friend spams the FL with more emails saying that this is a package better enjoyed as a COUPLE.


Overall, a super cute and funny read! A standout in its genre imo. If you liked dramas like Love 020 and Put Your Head On My Shoulder you'll like this story a lot because the way the leads interact is very similar, especially in the latter. <<less

In this bleak, and monotonous world, you came and painted it with your presence

People say ML is lazy, which I totally agree. However, I see it more as him being numb to the pain expectations of the people around him. Especially his father who failed to see his true self. He doesn’t like to stand out, does things his way, lazy, unemotional and petty. Despite that, in his own way he cares for the people who has been by his side and appreciate him. He can be adorable, sensitive, annoying, arrogant, showing a variety of emotion solely for them.

When MC came, he never gave it much thought. However, soon, he realizes that he got used to her presence. Her every little thing she does, when out together, made him realize how monotonous and lonely his life was. MC knows her boundaries, independent, smart, quirky, beautiful. Their daily interactions filled his everyday life. No more of those gray days where their marital status closely resemble a stranger. She made home feel like... home.

However, when he realized this feelings, what if she went away? Perhaps she may be a fairy like her narcissistic way of talking. Perhaps an angel who descended to try the mundane things in this world. But so what? He likes her, and he doesn’t want her to leave. If he has to, he will silently guard her door every night, hoping she’ll greet him like usual. Cook for him, hug him, and spoil him in her own way. So don’t go... don’t leave... stay here with me, in our home.

The MC is.. Could be way better. She's playing push and pull, hurting ML.. I really don't like that kind of attitude 'I'll run away and left you all alone suddenly after treating you well, worked hard to dive into your heart, and create a good comfortable habit together, just for my satisfication, kind heart, and to ease my guilt to not let you fall deeper in love with me' drama sh**. I thought she was better than that, much mature and level headed than Mary/White/Greentea that usually starred... more>> in that run away melodrama when things are going very well. Why downgrade to their level.. Geez. MC is a pretty capable woman in daily life. But ML deserve someone better who treats him well and treats him right permanently, not temporarily. MC can just go live her own life on her own, work hard on her career or lazyzing around alone in her own little home feeling lonely for all I care. She's just being sentimental and dense? And it hurts someone unnecessarily. Anyway, ML should meet someone else that's suitable for him thus realize that MC's not the only woman in the world that's not just onto his money or looks, can cook, and get along well with his personality and attitude. And it can be a happy, mature ending for everyone! Unless maybe later MC realize she's thrown away a very important person in her life because of her own dumb tantrum. Idc, she can meet someone she gets along with and get married later or something when she has matured. <<less

It's long dragged out.

... more>>

Husband knew on the first day that MC was not the one he married and refused to get divorced later. He later became afraid of her leaving after he tells her he knows she's not the one he married when they went to a temple and a fortune teller tried to give MC a talisman to ward off evil, which Husband threw away.

FL tried to drug ML to let him stay with her, but ML left and was saved MC's ice bucket, cutting off relations with FL after.

Step mother tried to get money from Husband when she found out about him and MC dreamed that stepmother tried to kill Husband in desperation. FL hated MC and tried to kill each other in a car crash, but both survived, MC with only a minor concussion and head injury. ML still ended up with his beloved wife, whom he met at the hospital after car accident.

When she noticed that he might be in love with her, she ran leaving a divorce paper and he came after that, and took her from ML. MC returned to her world for a bit and read the end of the story, finding out that it was all FL's dream, and when she returned to the book work, seven months had passed and ML had been neglecting his health. Afraid that she would disappear, he stuck to her like glue. Finally, they have a son, whom ML didn't want because he was afraid that MC would disappear after giving birth to a son, so he didn't want the child and always wants to put son into a carboard and send. At the end, it seemed they're to have another child, so had to move houses.


Husband treats her like his cook and rarely apologizes or is sweet, taking advantage of her every time and MC always apologizes even when she's not wrong. Not only that, but she easily gives in to him and quickly forgets her anger because ML acts weak.

If you like strong FL who always gives in to ML and would rather wrong herself instead of him, you'll like this one. <<less

UWU, I've read the raws last month and I never thought someone wuld actually pick it up! So lucky!

Fyi this novel is so cute, the ML is like a big baby that is always dazed when it comes to relationships romantically. He has low EQ but then again we have our super female lead to rescue the day (~^3^) ~

This is really cute I recommend this to all romantic fluffy lovers!!

This is that sweet happy novel that I'm a sucker for! I really enjoyed reading it. The MC and ML complements each other. Their actions and conversations are fun to read especially when it's related to food, these foodies! AND THE ML! He's like that precious kid you can't help but give chocolates with upon sight, it's no wonder that the MC can't resist him *sighs*. This is such a fine wine, the sweet taste when they officially got together after that long agony of waiting is worth it.

... more>>

The ML knows that the MC is not the original host the moment she "changed" and just doesn't show concern or interest simply because he doesn't care. On the later part of the story when he already has these romantic feelings for MC, there will be segments where the ML stays awake at night because he's afraid that she'll suddenly disappear without a trace. All those "Don't go.", "Don't leave me." or "You won't leave, right?" is really heartbreaking and I do felt his insecurities and anxiety while reading.

The MC then did disappear by the last chapters but thankfully it's a happy ending 'cause I'd be devastated otherwise... ?


The novel was easy to MTL but I'll read it again and come back for the translated version. Thanks for picking it up! <<less

A lot will find this cute. But I found both the FL & ML annoying.

The ML was a manchild. I didn't find the food conflicts cute at all

  • ML naturally expected her to cook for him. Then he would hold a grudge when she didn't.
  • She went to work everyday but was still the one cooking all the meals 8
  • What infuriated me more was her guilty conscious. For e.g.

    he was the one who ignored her when she asked about dinner but somehow, she was the one feeling guilty for excluding him in dinner plans.

  • Even more infuriating was him snacking behind her back guilt free
His taciturn behaviour wasn't charming.

  • Spoiler

    I wished she puked on him when he carried her like a sack.

  • Again, he was a manchild even when pursuing her, being mean to the girl he liked.
  • He probably wouldn't have thought of chasing her if not for the effort of others.
I found the FL to be overly submissive & naive for her age. She was so easily led by the ml, that the relationship felt imbalanced.

I think this was a case of hating the character settings, that I subsequently picked apart all their actions.

Really enjoyed this funny novel. I like the lazy, glutton ML and also the not so easily bullied FL very much! Tbh, I don't really like reading gaming novels all that much but I tried with this one since I ran out of Cnovels to read and I'm sooo glad I did!

For people like me who avoid such stories: don't worry, the gaming elements in this novel is super light and was mainly focused in the beginning of the story which was used to get our MCs closer to each... more>> other :) <<less

Where can I find such a silly, cute & fluffy dog man like Cheng Jun? Oh my god!!

Every point that I wanted to mention about this novel has been written by fellow Meatshield.

Every character is likeable and the story itself is satisfying. I like how the author mentioned the original FL's regret towards the end of the story (even though it's just a glimpse) since it makes it more realistic. Not many novels shows the antagonists' regret at the end of a novel, since most of them focus... more>> more on the development of the main leads. So, yeah.

I also like how the FL 'runs away' from ML after she accidentally listen to his confession. To me, feels realistic because the FL is the same kind of person as me (except that I'm still single /sigh). She didn't want to engaged in an unknown relationship since she didn't want to waste the ML's time/feelings. Ah man, when ML confess directly, I cried so hard. He's so pitiful. There's also some sad parts towards the end. I cried again lol but it's satisfying.

The ending is written in 3 words... I was speechless, but I can happily said that it was suitable with the scene ??

Ps/ if you want to chase a girl & rely on google, please read other people's comments or reviews first before going straight with the plan or it may backfired badly & embarassingly just like how it did in ML's & his friend's case lol <<less

I am tired about ML's obsession about food and lack of EQ. I seriously doubt ML wants FL becouse she can cook whatever round of food ML wants. There is no romance. I couldn’t found any fluff like everyone else is saying. Well, there interaction is funny, but not romantic. They are trying to plant strawberry by pinching each other!! ML said I love you and MC is going back with him but they don't even clear the issue and gone back the same childish routine. Dropping it. I liked... more>> the translation though. First few chapter was good. <<less

I MTLed the novel til the end and I can say that I liked the whole experience. Sure, there are some common tropes like the book heroine being evil/ a green tea b*tch and nasty relatives. But there is still content that is different enough for you to be able to distinguish the novel from other modern book transmigration novels.

I especially liked the ML in this novel. He is a rich CEO, sure, but he doesn't behave like it nor dresses like it. It's refreshing. His character development is also... more>> worth the read.

The extra chapters were a bit meh for me... mainly because I don't particularly care for kids, especially those unrealistically intelligent ones that talk like adults when they are barely past the toddler age that Chinese authors like to add for their cuteness factor. But I'm sure there are people out there who would appreciate the extra chapters for their wholesome content.

I would recommend this novel to those who are searching for an easy read that is not too long nor too short. <<less

Just as a warning, it takes a good 20 chapters for this to hit its stride and become really good. The start seems to struggle with finding its voice and direction, so there are parts during the beginning where you're like "OMG, is all of this taking place in a video game?" and will be about to drop it. But, if you can get through those chapters and to when the FL gets a job (which isn't as an actress or idol!), the story improves into something fluffy and well... more>> written.

The FL fits the mommy version of the "Cool Girl" trope. She's a low key, down to earth, gamer dork who loves cooking for her man and housework, and transmigrated into the incredibly gorgeous body of Ruan Jiu Jiu. If she wasn't pretty, she'd be your above-average nerd girl turned housewife, so it's a bit infuriating she has to be super model beautiful to pay to play in a romance, since she's the type most anyone would like to be friends with. She is honest and open, which is delightfully refreshing (secret take out delivery is about as scheming as she gets, and even that she never pulls it off), and while she likes and appreciates money (who doesn't?) she isn't greedy or obsessed with it, and true wealth makes her nervous. She's got an avoidance/ inferiority streak which makes her way more comfortable being her contract husband's housekeeping roommate than the object of his actual affections, and also keeps her around the ML instead of realizing she could do way better since, with her new face, she is basically all that and a bag of chips, but doesn't know it.

The super lazy ML who is constantly gorging himself on food should be a fat, sluggish, gaming addicted neckbeard with mommy issues living in his parent's bas**ent. But this is a Chinese story, where normal people are garbage, so he's a model-handsome man who secretly created a multi-billion dollar gaming company in under 3 years and basically sweats money from his pretty, pretty face. Which makes us forgive him his extreme pettiness (OMG, SO PETTY) and the fact that he is a pathological liar (seriously, he constantly lies about everything. Even when there is zero reason to do so. It's interesting that he is mainly attracted to the FL because she is unfailingly honest, when he does nothing but lie lie lie. the lying liar) We also grant him leeway because he realizes his feelings first and is quite hilarious, if extremely inept (because of the lying) as he tries to get his wife to like him.

Thank everything for Tu Nan, the cheerful, bumbling friend who blurts out the truth and exposes the ML every time, or else they'd never get anywhere, ever.

Still, 2nd male lead syndrome is strong with this one. The ML and FL are hilarious and work well together... but more as brother/ sister or slob friend and mom friend. 70 chapters in, and I'm really not seeing any romantic chemistry. The 2nd male lead doesn't constantly whinge or irritate the FL, has higher EQ, and seems far more in her comfort-level, career and money wise, and their personal morals and convictions match well. The two just seem to enjoy each other more that FL and the ML.

I find the OG FL interesting. Her fatal flaw is that she wants a sure deal at a better life.

In her first life, she ran off on her nice-enough childhood friend her family was pressuring her to marry because she thought the ML was a sure bet. He is absurdly hot, his father owns a prominent business, and he isn't a womanizer. But the pathological lying (and her lack of motherliness/ cooking skills) got in the way, and she spent her life under the impression that he was jobless and then destitute after his father's company folded, since he never bothered to tell her he was even employed. Her second time round, she latches on to that childhood friend, because she knows he has feelings for her and she saw him achieve success. But when she sees other timeline discrepancies (caused by the transmigrated FL) she panics because it's not a sure deal anymore and she self-sabotages.


Overall, enjoyable, actually funny, and worth reading. They feel like they have a real and full relationship.

Funnily enough the author seems to be a teensy bit racist.

Not blatant, but it's there. The "Western" make up and hair are too thick and ugly, and are what prevent FL from being her true, beautiful self, the Western food tastes bad and is hard to eat, the FL lies and sneaks around at the Western restaurant, tanning is hideous and worth crying over, etc. I mainly find it amusing.

This is the first time I discovered a dynamic like this in Chinese novels, and I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! They're witty and petty, and the chemistry is just *chief's kiss*

Imo, an ideal read if you're into Korean contemporary romance style, it really fits in the same line with that genre.

Also, the translation is immaculate, and it feels how hard the translators worked for it to sound so organically in English, and yet still carry the essence of the original.

This is a GEM!

The story is so funny, the translation is great and gosh~ I'm in love with the memes.

ML is apathic at first but caring in his own way, and is slowly starting to opening to ML he's (to me) adorable like a cat. FL is hilarious and hardworking, and is not seeking romance. She's just living her life, and be vibing lol. The moments between them are both funny and sweet, as they relationship is slow burn is fun to see the change in their feelings.

It's not in... more>> the tags but there's a bit of E-sport mentioning. It's not heavy on the central plot so if you're not a gamer nor you like it, it would not affect your reading experience.

If you're still not convinced, translators are NOT cutting the chapters! You get the lengthy chapter in all its glory, enjoying it full with no awkward cuts to make one chapter into three 💕 THANK YOU SO MUCH DEAR TRANSLATOR FOR THAT, ꒰* ॢꈍ◡ꈍ ॢ꒱ wuv u 💕

So if you wanna a funny easy to read romantic story with no heavy schemes and adorables characters, while also having the chapters delivered one at a time and not by bits, THIS. You absolutely have to read THIS. 10/10 I recommend. <<less

The story is so dragged out due to the fact that these adults act like children. They don't speak out what's on their mind and thus, leading to misunderstandings. I reached chapter 83 and there's still not much romance. Let alone a confession on the female lead's end. I'm so disappointed. I just don't like leaving low ratings so I rated this 3 stars.
