Transmigration of Mian [Reluctantly] Becomes His Man [Wife]


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

Qin Mian opened his eyes and found himself lying in a leaky thatched room. The problem was that he was still in his family’s villa beforehand! What’s more, there was another man lying next to his leg in the quilt!

“You, you, who are you?”

The man sat up quietly, his upper body exposed as looked at Qin Mian for a moment before he carried a worn out bowl with a cracked corner from the low table at the head of the bed. The man said in a muffled voice, “Wife, drink water.”

Qin Mian’s eyes rolled backwards and he passed out.

Title explanation: 勉为其男 [miǎn wéi qí nán] have the same sound as 勉为其难 [miǎn wéi qí nán] which means to do something reluctantly. 勉 [miǎn] is also part of MC’s name: Qin Mian.  Also, 其[qí ] sounds the same as 妻 [qi] means wife. So, there are words plays. Basically, Qin Mian reluctantly becomes someone’s man [wife] after he transmigrated.

I've read slice of life but this still felt boring. I wanted to know more about the villagers but towards the end it seems to be more focused on royal intrigue. Speaking of royals, I really hate the emperor. He demanded the ML take his previous position after he resigned and had his own family because he needed to take care of one thing really, was there no one else. And was also the reason why ML had to resign, trying to force his niece on him. His half brother... more>> even killed the stepmother of the ML and the only thing he could give the ML was that he was going to investigate it when he already knew who did it. The point is I didnt really see why they had to put up with it to begin with. But apart from that the ML has a weird situation going on, and I just cant bring myself to like him. The original died in his care while he was sitting on a pile of money and had magical healing pills. I know that if the original didnt die then we couldn't have the pairing but that's really messed up when you think about it. His intentions towards the original also had me looking at him sideways. It was only mentioned that he wanted to marry a guy because he didn't like his step mother so continued to equate every female to her, which is such a lazy move to me, I mean his dad was awful to him as well, didnt see that turn him off men. The other thing that got me was the time line, ML is a genius martial artist, better than anyone in the novel. But only really had about 6 months of training?? Meanwhile MC had been practicing for years with assistance from his spring water and still wasn't good enough. <<less

This one is good! I want more!!! 😭😭😭😭 Slice of life in ancient times. The MC transmigrated in a backward rural farm. He woke up in a different body just a few days after the originalqQin mian married the ML.

Whereas, the ML is an ideal guy 💕 knowing that he would be betrothed to man he felt disappointed but agreed since he was a little aversive to females similar to du shi. The MC looked at ML with no fear and disgust, this led the ML to fall in love... more>> with MC. Also, the ML is filial. His stepmom and dad mistreated him (but not to too much to cost one's life), so he is still good to them unless they touch the ML's inverse scale (MC). This is honestly good. Recommended for those who love a chill-read without much dog blood drama. Only annoying stepmom, dad and some neighbors. This is focused more on farming, cooking, generating income and daily life of MC and ML (very minimal on cultivation).

The emperor is also okay. He may be a little selfish but he is also reasonable.

Cons: I don't know what happened to the original body of MC. <<less

The best thing about the story is how loving the ML is towards his wife. Basically an iceberg to everyone but a marshmallow to MC. He is the cute jealous type, not the yandere jealous type.

They started out in this rural village, living next to the chicken coop, disdain by the ML's dad and stepmom. ML was forced to marry MC because some fortune-teller said something. Thankfully not all the stepfamily are annoying. Unfortunately, the annoying ones stay on for quite some time.

There is some face slapping here, but it's... more>> not a big part of MC's agenda. He just wants to get out of the chicken coop and make money to better their lives.

I have a guilty pleasure of liking stories that try to bring modern-ish tech to apply it to primitive/ancient setting. This story focused more on modern Chinese cuisine being introduce in ancient China. It is always hotpot though.

I made it through 170 chapters of atrocious MTL butchering, so... Imma just wait for the translated chapters coz this point of the story is palace politics and drama, and my brain just cannot anymore. <<less

OMGGG, Iam so excited to read the TL for this. Ive read a very rough MTL (but readable) of this somewhere and it was quite nice to read. The MTL wasnt finished then

... more>>

(tried it via googletrans and its just painful by the time it move to the 2nd half of the arc, so I stopped)

so I dont know what happens next but Im very much looking forward to this TL.


Its about MC transmigrating to a man who was just married to ML.

MC of course, starts building his wealth, making sure ML is not being bullied by the rest of the family. MC has a golden finger space here.

ML has a mysterious background.

They will have kids (awww 🥰)

**And Ive read somewhere that theres more (lol) Iam looking forward to this more they are talking about 🤭🤭🤭

Highly recommended 💕 especially those who love a slow romance, farming and age-progression

Some may find it boring since this is a slice of life in an undeveloped village far from capital. Most of the scenes are cooking and farming. Though there are scenes where the MC's family goes to capital, it isn't much. So, if you aren't fond of these better find a novel with slapping scenes than rate the novel low since it's unfair to the author and translator.
