Transmigrating to the Ancient Times with Lu’s Convenience

Description

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

Lu Lin resigned from his job in the big city, returned to the countryside, and inherited the convenience mart left by his parents. Then a thunderstorm sent Lu Lin to an unfamiliar ancient era. Lu Lin was reborn as a young man with the same name and surname as himself, and he was about to be married to a fierce Bio who goes up the mountain to fight tigers.

Adjusting to ordinary farming, not a long story.

Note: In this story, “Bios” typically have manly features and a birthmark shaped like a flower on their forehead. They are not as tall as men and they are able to bear children, but childbirth is more difficult than it is for women.

Really love the story. But eh feel like it end so suddenly ~ kinda unsatisfied with the ending, like they haven't show much accomplishment in that town n it just end :v

Overall if u r fan of romance this story is not for u. Our ML presence is so low I feel like the 2 evil granma have more dialogue than him :v even the brothers have more focus on them. Maybe author is single so he have no idea how to make romantic situations or romantic n heart-warming dialogue... more>> 😂 welp at least the few paragraphs at the end is between MC n ml, eventho its so abrupt the atmosphere is not right at all!! 😂 Like u talking about the fleet to suddenly bout them drinking last sprite n having cute moment ~ so abrupt!

But if u r a fan of face slapping (which maybe 1/3 of the words count is focus on the 2 evil family), if u like building business n making money n making more money, if u enjoy introducing delicious food that weirdly ppl in the ancient time never think of (which I highly doubt I'm sure hotpot n bbq n roasting already exist waaaay back) then yeah u will enjoy this story! So yeah it's not perfect n gugle translation a bit confusing too many wrong name bad writing by the author but it's still got its own charm. I like their family interaction (like mostly MC n the sibling most of the time ML is non existence author just forgot bout him) Like some ppl said concept is great but writing is not that great. A bit messy. Especially towards the end feel like the arc just incomplete ~ Like author suddenly rage quit 😂😂😂 there's so much more potential for it! <<less

I already finished reading this using MTL since I am so impatient😭

THE STORY IS REALLY GOOD AH! I am a sucker of Seme Protagonist that transmigrate into ancient times.

MC is a gong, weaker, but smarter and cunning. ML is a shou, stronger (basically really strong lol, he can win against tiger by himself, note that he is a ger). Bio is actually a ger you see, in the early chapter it got called bio, but later it changes to ger lol. Some of you must familiar with this gender term,... more>> so I am not gonna elaborate on that.

It starts with Lu Lin got married off (as a husband) to Chen Xiaomi. Basically they (original MC and Xiaomi) have similar experience of getting tr*shed, bullied, and abandoned by the family. Lu Lin by Lu family, and Chen Xiaomi by Chen family. You can see that it's literally slice of life. Lu Lin transmigrate when Original LuLin arrive at CXM door.

Lu Lin has something like a space, called Covenience Store (MTL said so...). It legit looks like a small supermarket lol. It contains a lot of things, like any spices and food whether it was a junk or healthy one. CXM is sensitive and smart too, so he immediately found something weird about Lu Lin, so CXM knows about the secret space fast enough (REALLY EARLY LOL I was so surprised when Lu Lin talk about it easily), and Lu Lin also explained everything about it and the fact that he is transmigrated, telling CXM about his original world and so on. Lu Lin literally got so proud and happy because he got to see CXM admiration and lovely expression lol.

After that it's the journey of Lu Lin and his family (contain Chen Xiaomi and his 2 little brother) from being a abandoned people to official family that reside in a prosperous county.

The journey is really explained well, and there is a lot of face slapping. There hardly any drama except for some family members, village members, and pressured by county leader when they still an ordinary business men from a country. But it's not bad for me lol. It's light, so no worries.

Just like I said before, Lu Lian will become an official! Usually, it's a must to become a scholar by taking an examination first, then after that you can become an official, right?

Certainly, Lu Lian not doing it this way!

Spoiler

He basically buying an official title. BUYING A FREAKING OFFICIAL TITLE.

[collapse]

At first, I am not taking Lu Lin seriously at all. I was thinking that LL only joking when he said it, so I let it go. I got fooled, this fellow really outdoing me, tsk. Well, it kind of weird how CXM and LL always talk about this in their free time, blame me for being inattentive.

So Lu Lian and his people going into the desolate county (because it's cheap), throw any creative idea to his second brother in law (CXM little bro) then lead his county become famous and prosperous. After that he got promoted safely because some prince took a liking to his county, then move to another county, then the end. No, not this short of course, it's just me summing it up lol.

Spoiler

The youngest brother of CXM will married to the nephew of the general that work in the county (1st county that desolated). This nephew become a famous scholar.

The second brother of CXM will married to Grandma Shen's grandson. You will see.

[collapse]

It's really good ahhhh awesomee!

Unfortunately, the romance, fluff, and sweetness between the characters is not fleshed out well in my opinion. There's hardly any explicit fluff! Every little sweet gesture mostly only written implicitly... No worries though, you still can feel the fluff.

Especially Lu Lin and Chen Xiaomi. Honestly I thought there's gonna be a lot of romantic scene between them, but there is not! I need detailed cuddle! Need detailed kiss! Hug! Too bad it's only written in one sentence...

Except this everything is good.

Absolutely recommended,

I feel Saddened about Saddict's review so Imma Just Say This Once.

This Novel for me is not Great but it isnt Bad Either I'd Say it is a Fufilling Novel its a Refreshing Novel.

Like Stuff for Cliche Dog blood.

... more>> Possesive, powerful and yandere ML?

Smart, cunning, and unparalled beautiful MC?

This Novel is rather Normal but! Its Refreshing and It makes me want to Look forward more. (BUt sadly Ugh Flting Lines made it only available for 48 Chapters : (.)

Our ML had a really rough life if it werent for him being strong and Him Hunting.

They Would've have probably died on the spot. No.. they would have already died if it werent for that.

ML's Life had a Rough Childhood and he had a bad reputation in The Village. Because They keep slandering him for being rough, Unfilial and Etc. ML's Age was Only about 18 years old when he married Lu Lin (Mc)..

he Has 2 Brothers and their life aint Good. So for people who Keeps saying that ML's Second Youngest brother was so cold To MC at First. for me I think its a natural reaction. thats because first of all the Original Lu Lin committed su*cide at first that's because he had heard how cruel ML is. and the villagers were unwilling to let their children marry to a fierce and cruel ML. and what more ML's life aint good He is Poor and Got 2 people to feed. But if he didnt marry he had to pay tax every year for 3 taels. (10 tael is already a HUGe HUge amount). but Villagers were still unwilling. ML Paid 10! taels for the marrige. (a huge loss 10 tael is like having a 10, 000 pesos).

Thats why you should understand ML's Second brother. I mean would you frckin be nice to someone who committed su*cide because they didnt want to marry your brother??.

and whats more they are poor and only rely on ML hunting skills to Live and eat. now they've got a 3rd person to feed. winter is almost coming and ML had to act fast. When MC came to the house he still wasnt fully recovered.. he only ate and slept all day and didnt do a damn thing when ML was working his ass off.

Second of all ML didnt want nor he took MC's Credits! OKay! Saddicts you Should have known this better than me Okay!? your chapter 116 while I'm at 70!. MC and ML Deliberately Hid the ideas and where all the Stuff comes from. So The Second brother Didnt know at All! and what could you expect HE's 8 YEARS OLD UGH. DONT BLMAE IT ON HIM. he's just too protective for his brother. hes the only breadwinner and the one who refused to let them die from hunger

and 3rd of all fck What do you mean seem ungrateful? Cant you read Gash Oh My... ML Started opening up and trusting on MC More. he supports his ideas and treated him better when MC told the truth that he wasnt the real LU LIN. cant you read..? do you know how many times he thought to himself that he was really lucky for marrying LU LIN? he always tell himself that none of this couldve have happen when if Lu lin had'nt come... his brothers were now healthy due to LU LIn's cooking and he didnt need to worry about letting his brothers freeze to death during winter with old clothes! on... UGh Please dont make it seem like he's a bastard when he's not..

fourth of all.. Everyone keeps saying he seems more reliant on MC now.. and just some damn people hate that are you frickin serious I cry everytime when I see their family doing so well. before they were barely alive, skinny, Unhealthy and Poor.. but fck now.. their family is doing better than ever! ML's was a teenager when he left the family to work hard to death for his brothers.. he risk his life on hunting when he's only a few years old.. he saved his Little brother fomr his uncle who was planning to sell him and devote his blood and sweat for his brothers. but cant you gys just apreaciate that they now were experiencing things unlike before?...

Jus Because our ML is now more reliant on MC.... make you dislike him..?? He is not over reliant on MC he still hunts and thats all he can do okay you cant blame him.. and in exchange he supports and helps MC.. he even let Mc

take the Money they saved to keep it safe in their pockets....

First of all MC is a GONG.. While ML is a SHOU.... this is different from the other novels... that you read about ML being a Overpowered beauty GONG... This novel here is a Hidden gem please dont hate on it... MC has the brains and intellectual.. while ML has the strenght and support.. <<less

I love it. It is such a good read but I feel everyone is relying on MC instead of growing by themselves. There are so many characters in the MC's side that some I felt have been left behind in the story.

Spoiler

The brother-in-law's business took credit for all of MC's idea like the stores, restaurant and hot spring. Brother-in-law would always follow MC around and gain profit. MC's husband seem a little ungrateful and is always depends on MC that's why kids and youngest brother-in-law were spoiled rotten. They always expect to eat good from MC. There are new good characters being introduced in every chapters and the novel makes you fall in love with but was forgotten like the servants little son, the cousin, the blind soldier and etc. The MC seem a little incompetent too since there is really nothing special abouth him other than he has the convinience store and he has modern knowledge. And he takes credit for all of them. It makes me feel bad for the actual people in the modern day that invented them who actually worked their asses off. MC just basked in the glory of other people. The only thing about MC is he is giving and somewhat have a good personality other than wanting to always be updated on his relatives downfall. Even the convenience store were forgotten eventually.

No character development, the ML (!) is simply a handy plot device trotted out to advance the story and then disappears again.

“granny Shen died last year.” The only mention of granny Shen dying, seriously, a main character dies and just meh, nobody cares.

there’s no emotion, I feel like it was written by an accountant, dry and dull and all about MONEY, MONEY, FOOD, MONEY, FOOD ad nauseum. There isn’t much else to it, even the kids were boring and dull, and the freaking author FORGETS THE AGES OF KIDS CONSTANTLY, just changes as necessary <<less

A good leveling-up type novel, if you want to read about how a dirt-poor outcast family with a transmigrator earn money, expand, and become wealthy businessmen and officials, this is a great novel.

I would have rated this a 4 but the biggest issue with this novel was the sheer amount of malicious villagers/family members/backstabbing gossip that is repeated over and over again.

About 40% of the novel is absolute pure repetitive filler content that should have been skipped or summarized. Keep note that a lot of web novels pay authors by... more>> wordcount, so it's common for filler to get out-of-hand.

Nevertheless, if you are good at skimming, this is not a bad read.

Another weakness is the romance; really the novel's focus is about leveling up/building/inventing new food and improving life, not very much about the romance and almost no character development or focus. Although too many things are told about without much descriptive detail, at least there's a big cast of side characters that actually contribute to the overall plotline.

On the plus side, the MC is pretty lowkey and shares his wealth with his friends and family and doesn't need to be the "most famous most well-known" guy with all the ideas out there.

Great translation, no jargon, translation followed author's meaning and intent. <<less

I already read the mtl and greatly enjoyed the story. :) Although MC & ML don't have much fluffy moments, the story is interesting because of the progress of the main characters and the story itself. (♥ω♥*) The MC turned from being a farmer to a businessman/politician/gourmand. ⊂ (ο・㉨・ο)⊃ There are also comedic moments bet the main characters. ┗ (^0^) ┓.. So far, so good..

Honestly, the book is below average. The plot and dog blood drama is cliche. The fillers and repeated sentences paraphrased are endless. The Dialogue is also awkward. The only reason I put up with this is because I love slice of life stories with store owner or money grubber protagonists.

If you don't have anything else to read, then go ahead.

It is extremely different from many transmigration novels and has a beautiful story. However, the author probably didn't plan the storyline ahead of time. The focus of the story is on irrelevant things most of the time. In fact probably 50% of the story is focused on the downfall of the 'original' family of ML and MC. Both the main characters were bullied to the extreme by their family members so it obviously feels good to read about their downfall. But it gets boring when the story focuses on these... more>> hated family members more than the main characters and other eccentric side characters. The first half of the story should have been halved and the second half of the story should have been doubled, then only the story would have been more beautiful. However, it's just my personal opinion.

These are the few pros of this story:

    • The 'new' family of the MC consisting of him, his 'bios', and two brother-in-laws and their partners are all kind-hearted. Unlike many transmigration stories that really focus on the growth of only the main characters, this story actually focuses on the growth and development of the public as a whole.
    • There is no focus on s*upid steamy scenes and cheesy flirting. I am basically sick with these overbearing and yandere tops and meek bottoms in BL stories. This story really brings out some freshness to the BL as well as transmigration genre.
    • The main characters believe in Corporate Social Responsibility. The MC thinks that since he transmigrated to this world and had a good fortune (both family-wise and financial-wise), he needs to give something back to the society. So, he fully focuses on improving the living standard of the people.
    • As an 'economics' student, I personally liked some ideas depicted to break away from the vicious cycle of poverty.
Cons:

    • The MC has a magical space but this wonderful fact is not integrated to the story at all. Obviously the story would have been so magical if the benefits of the space was explored more. But it was only used in the first few chapters and the last chapter.
    • The story also focused way too much on s*upid drama of irritating side characters. Like, who the hell wants to read chapters after chapters about useless side characters livelihood and their biased opinion on our lovely family of the MC? I so wanted to read about the main characters and their personal growth as well as their contribution to the world which only happens in the second half of the story. The first half is so irritating on so many levels that I simply wanted to throw away my phone on several occasions.
    • The story also focuses more on food as a way of development. Well it's definitely not a bad thing because good food and shelter for poor families already showcase an increase in living standard. But after these poor families get somewhat rich due to MC's influence, its sole impact seems to be that they get a lot of marriage proposals. It would have been great if the story showed that the children were finally able to go to school or something like that.
    • Some characters just die and it is mentioned like after a year. Some characters are just mentioned by in the passing. Some important events happen but they are also mentioned briefly but measly things are mentioned over and over again.
    • The writing style is way too simple and has no sense of novelty or originality. It feels like a mass production writing style or something like that.
P.S. Another story written by this author called 'The Spiritual Plant Master Transmigration' is really good. It is of xianxia genre and better than this story. <<less

Chapter 5

I've only just started reading so I don't have much to say, but it seems promising so far. It's very realistic, in that the ger/bio is actually a "manly" man who is cold-hearted and ruthless for the sake of his family. Family as in his brothers, not including MC because right now MC is just a half-dead man ML paid to marry. 🙂 Something I'm confused about:
Spoiler

The fine for being unmarried past 18 will cost ML 3 taels while marrying the half-dead suicidal MC costs 10 taels, so why did ML do it? ML doesn't care for MC's survival and knows MC probably won't last long, and even ML's brother complained that they needed the money to get through winter. MC is an extra mouth they need to feed and will only increase their burden. Is the 3 tael fine something that ML has to pay every year? Maybe it is. 🤔

[collapse]

This is completely different from My Favorite Manly Husband, The Only Favorite Ugly Husband and Li Jin's Daily Farming Life where although the ger (ML) is physically manly, they have a more soft-hearted and caring personality, and is very obedient to their husband (MC). MC will then influence ML to become more independent and ambitious. But this ML is already like that from the beginning. 😍

THIS IS DEFINITELY A VERY GOOD STORY!!!

I mean, I know that this story itself has a general theme and the storyline is also almost the same as other agricultural/business-themed transmigration... But this story really have more points because it has a clear way of conveying and resolving conflicts, which really satisfied for me

... more>>
Spoiler

Ofcourse there are still some holes like the Chen family, which described as miserable but still has an unsatisfactory climax, or some side characters such as Chen Xio Mi cousin who is also less exposed towards the end... As for the ML family, I think their ending was the best described even though the author make the ending of their family hanging...

[collapse]

The shortcoming of this story itself, maybe lies in the development of MC and ML's relationship, which was described/made too fast.

I'm personally still surprised to see how quickly their relationship developed,
Spoiler

Especially the part where the MC revealed the secret room issue to Chen Xio Mi, and Chen Xio Mi just thinks it's normal...

[collapse]

Last, there is a lot of people who confused about the problem of money value and the financial system in this story... But the fact is, it's not that hard to understand it...

You just need to understand that in this story, between the rich and the poor have a very extreme levels, which also applies to every area where they life. <<less

Is it unfair to judge a book just after reading a few chapters? But I really couldn’t continued. MC was so weak and naive that he was even bullied by some 8 years old kid. His overall demeanour was just not pleasant as a MC. I’m surprised its rating is actually quite high (4.3 when I wrote this review). I’ll pass this one.

It's true about the title, , it's really convenient life...

From the novel description, I imagine Cheng Xiao min as a savage cutie, , his appearance is from Lu Lin's POV.

I call this novel bland, , even the most relaxing slice of life novel has more drama than this.

But this really is a good read.

Really my cup of tea...

    • Seme protagonist
    • Slice of life
    • Farming and bussiness
    • Children
    • Fluffy
    • Understanding couple
    • And more blablabla tags
This is really nice

Update: okay so I'm back here to reread for... dunno, , maybe 10 times or more..

Anyway, there is this newly comment that makes me disagree so much. I kinda understanding the first part. The story does flow but kinda skip on some part that should have been more description.

The couple doesn't have many fluffy moments but imo their trust to each other in itself is really endearing cause I don't think fluffy or romance need kiss hug s*x or any physical activities.

The Chen brothers is understandable... Like you give someone raw material and book of teori. If he doesn't have the skill to implement it, it would only end up as bland paste, not saucy delicious steak. Anyway you don't underestimate those Chen's brother!

Chen Xiao Mai got there just to get married?! He only admire ML?! Are you reading this right???

The first time reading, I'm hooked to how MC's character pretty much likeable for me. Second time reading I got more detailed images of Lu and Chen big family and their relationship also the overall relationship in plot. Third reading I got much in depth with Chen brother's role in story. Fourth reading I can make a theory of how and why this happen but I don't want to write here cause it's gonna be so damn long and I just cut my fingers, literally. I'm in pain here.. fingers, stomach, now reading that comment makes my heart in pain too...

Anyway.. don't trust it. This is gem I tell you. But of course if you more in taste with surface drama and exciting midlife crisis.. then you won't get it here. Cause this is, even for me who didn't like to read drama, so slow life more slower than japanese slow life..

Read at your own risk!!

Frankly I didn't enjoy it much in the beginning

I really don't like this kind of Ml

Compared to him, I felt MC was an angel.

... more>> With how hard ML works, he should know that it is very difficult to earn money, but only at few times it feels like he is greatful to MC. Their quality of life improved by a lot after MC came but barely initially anyone tried to show it in words how thankful they are.

The li bro character is always disrespectful to MC.

We all know they bought MC at 10 taels but MC replied it a a lot. He made so much money and prepared food and treated them as family.

But only the youngest brother felt like he was a simpleton and could see through. Rest of the time it was as though MC ate something that he could never afford and treat others.

Geez! It was so frustrating, this should be handled early and good.

It's always brushed of as ML being cute, and baby and like a tsundere which I dare say you I felt not. MC treats their family so nicely and a little gratitude would have been good

They all notivn their life gets better, then ML thinks its all because of MC then bro also thinks the same. Then whenever you get something delicious ML covets it like a kid and calls dips. MC smiles and thinks ML is so cute like a brat and so handsome.

Oh god!!

MC could have given the money and lived himself better even though his health isn't good.

It's contantly brushed off as something to be normal which I didn't find.

Remember the original host actually committed su*cide just the thought of marrying ML albeit wrong for having prejudices due to rumours.

But remind you that when MC transmigrated the original host body was weak and the little bro and ML planning to not send him to hospital (waste of money and they already paid enough)

After that the ML and bro said that MC was a waste money and food. They would always look at MC with judgemental eyes.

I feel bad for original host, I mean let's be honest. If it was the original host he would have died regardless when he is send to ML house.

Oh it all felt so convenient to ML being cute little bro being protective and all.

Anyone would like a golden goose like MC with a convenience store. If it were not the same would they have treated him well. With so much emitemot abuse.

I am not saying ML is bad. He is good even great to his family. With so much hard work and emotional abuse from family and villagers it's amazing how he became strong and held his ground.

But what made me feel worse was the fact that ML said how the original host was blind and shouldn't have committed su*cide. ML is so handsome and such a cute guy!

Agh!!!

Like seriously, his cuteness only became visible later on, he didn't have a golden finger.

I just feel that it's all too convenient. I mean without the store and all, bad health, bad family members, being sold to a fierce guy who has a bad reputation with a lot of rumours. When nothing goes according to your way. Being treated like a curse and a plague by everyone. In that time period and having a small mentality when you don't know about the world the original owner was way too pitiful. I felt wrong for others MC and ML to judge him.

And ML attitude started completely changing after finding out MC was a rich kid and give him so much to eat.

I was Like wahh!

Then MC goes ML is so cute

Wahh! Agh!

After earning a lot of money MC would say he'll buy clothes, and ML would always roll his eyes.

This young master is too much. People here wear it for 3 year and more. Remind you it is just after MC thoughtfully explained us how he didn't have any other seasons clothes and MLs clothes are too small.

MC would want to eat or make something they would think what a waste.

After MC says junk food is bad for your health. ML thinks MC doesn't want to share anything and is doing on purpose.

After a period of time MC says we shouldn't eat junk food very seriously.

Then ML says food is food. Food is good

MC goes ML is so cute.

I mean what?!

Really I actually felt frustrated reading it for these reasons.

Apart from that when they face slap it's great to see the others mysery. I didn't like how villagers are shown as villain, well that's the plot and that's how story is.

Only few villagers were good and few people were nice.

Almost the whole family on both sides could make others blood boil

in MLs defense:

He did everything from young age alone

He loves his family (lil bros) and would do anything for them

He doesn't trust others easily

He doesntd actually have to treat MC better

He is shown to be cute (but that fell way too flat for me)

He can beat people up who piss him off.

Good thing should be said twice he BEATS them up literally

Its okay to read for time pass though not great!

It was kinda frustrating, made me write the review.

Well, happy reading

Edit:

So it gets better after like 75+ chapters.

Our MC starts to take the role of decision maker in family.

Little bros growth is commendable.

ML kinda is put to sideline. But still there.

All the side couples are cute.

The 2 little bros and their spouses are the best. Especially Mai, he is such a badass savage just like his bro Mi.

Lu Lin actually bought official title. BOUGHT It!!! <<less

Among all the stories about transmigration into a poor village to farm, this one is finally different. Yes, it has the usually opening of restaurants using modern recipes to succeed, but what I really like is that Lu Lin also used lots of others ideas to make more money, and finally became a magistrate. The story is not very romantic, and it has zero steamy scenes, but the relationship between the protagonists and that of the other couples are very warm and sweet. Lu Lin is constantly being pampered... more>> by his wife Chen Xiaomi, who despite being a ger is very strong and capable. He "bullies" his husband to get the things inside the little store that the ML has. I love the idea of transmigrating with the store, but the autor didn't use it much in the story, just at the beginning and it was mention in the last chapter. The plot has certain loopholes, the author totally forgot about some character, but all in all is a beautiful story! (I MTL it, so I expect the official translation eagerly!) <<less

There are lots of stories based on ancient times, specially based on farming, hunting or struggling to live a decent life. Among those stories, this one stands out the most for me.

In this story MC (Lu Lin) has the ability to use the convenience store that he inherited from his parents. At first he uses the basic items like salt, rice, eggs from the store. He also earns some money with the help of his store. That's all the benefit MC gets from having the convenience store, this ability has... more>> limit.

The thing I liked most about this story is that MC doesn't becomes a very influential or a super wealthy person. And also he doesn't achieve his success in one go, instead he slowly becomes a businessman and earns a lot from the rich people. Then he faces challenges which are pretty common if you are a becoming rich without any backbone (support of an influential person). After that he uses his knowledge for the betterment of society. He also ends up introducing lots of new food trends, his love for food actually helped him a lot in the long run. Towards the end the MC doesn't have an extravagant lifestyle, instead he has a rich lifestyle which fulfills all his basic needs and recreation, and he also gains some influence too.

The flow of the story is quiet good. At start daily life of the MC is explained. But then slowly the time skip occurs, as a result the story doesn't seem boring. I did end up skipping the parts where the MC and ML's idiotic family, the Lu and Chen family keeps on badmouthing the MC and ML.

What this story lacked was the fluff moments between MC and ML, actually there is not much moments which focused only on the main couple. But as a bonus there are lots of family moments, and lots of side characters too. The author actually gave glimpse of what happened to the side characters and side couples. <<less

I really liked it! It was nice to see the MC grow his business and improve many people's livelihood. It was pretty funny and some nice face slapping. Although I do wish there was more romantic moments between the MC and ml.

AMAZINGGGG! Not a boring second when reading this slice of life novel! The MC is so business savvy. He uses modern day creations to lift his new family out of poverty and his businesses also improves the livelihood of those around him. The ML's presence just kinda fades away after awhile but the story is still really good. Not really that romance focused but their relationship is great. The kids (the younger brothers of the ML and the children) are all adorable and have big personality!

If you're into successful business... more>> management, foodies, smooth sailing plots with protagonist halo and shamless-greedy-family-members-coveting-for-the-main-charachters'-riches this is definitely for you! <<less

Such a good story. We don't get to see the really rich and powerful couple at the end, but they had what they worked for with effort and not thanks to any mary sue label. It made me so sad to see everyone grow and have their own children, I felt almost like a mother.

It is such a great story❤ I love how light and fulfilling this story was

The MC is such a foodie that he influences not only his family but also the whole country. And the ML is so cute, he started with being frugal that he will scold MC in his heart for being wastrel but would still spoil him to buy everything he likes and in the end, the whole family became like ML who will buy and eat everything they like

I love every characters and to be honest there... more>> is no characters I didn't like except the both sides bloodsucking family

This not a story where everything is on the right track. There is ups and downs but it will be solved in reasonable way

The MC didn't really depend on the store for the whole story but what his golden finger really is, is that he is a transmigrator and he use and integrated his knowledge of the things from the modern society to the time and space where he is to not only make his live easy and comfortable but also to the people around him

All in all this is one of my favorite novel that I will surely reread.

I actually want to cry that it ends so fast that I red it for just 2 days <<less
