Trapped in a Typical Idol Drama


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

Ye Xi crossed over into a typical idol romance novel as the villainess.

For the sake of her safety, she decided to distance herself from the male and female protagonists while silently observing their real-life version of a school idol drama. Everyday, she would repeatedly ridicule the main protagonists in her thoughts, along with their group of friends and fans.

It’s not surprising, however, that the male protagonist’s special ability is to hear the voices of other people’s thoughts. So he listened to all kinds of curses that Ye Xi secretly harbored and recorded them one by one.

Expressionless Male Protagonist: the future is long, your debts will slowly be collected.

Ye Xi covers her ears: I’m not listening, not listening, *recites Wang Ba’s Sutras*

Author thinks the plot and setting of the novel gives them the freedom to pull random events, plot details, and out-of-character actions out of thin air without explanation. Example:

... more>>

There is randomly a super big sports day that everyone in the school takes really, really seriously and everyone hates the FL for trying to get involved because they think she will ruin their chances of winning. It turns out that their school had a deep rivalry with another school and the other school always wins. The FL chooses to give up participating in the 1k race or whatever because she "realises" that the body she is in now is not the same as the one she had before... -_- like serious?! It's taken her THAT LONG to realise? Cue training montage and a bunch of other random stuff. Finally, on the day of the event, the FL's school wins the 1k relay, and it turns out that instead of their school always losing it was only this event they ever lost in.


... see what I mean? To put none too fine a point on it, it's like the author was writing when they suddenly thought "Oh hey, that seems like a good idea, lemme put it in! Right now! With no foreshadowing or development!". Repeatedly.

The plot detracts from the story so much that I just stopped reading. There's nothing fun in reading about a bunch of completely random events that are linked together by... well, nothing.

In short: interesting premise, FL had a pretty funny outlook at the beginning. Felt like it was trying to go To Be a Power in the Shadows!, but then... it failed. Miserably. <<less

The story progressed too fast and illogically in some sense especially in the emotion area. If this was not a romance story with her not ending up with anyone then it would have been better and would have gotten a higher rating from me.
From what I read and my opinion, there was little to none romance build up between the MC and the "ML". It was pretty much toward the end did we get a definitive sense on who the true ML is. There's nothing wrong with no romance... more>> the in beginning and middle of the story, but since the romance start blandly revealing itself really quick toward the end of the story which felt really rush, unrealistic, and there wasn't even a "romantic aura" coming out from their interaction that proves that they love each other. Kudos to her when she "realized" her "feeling" toward him is more than a friend and she was decisive (this is what I like about her) enough to go out with him, but just bc u realized your feeling for him might not be as simple as "friends" it doesn't mean you love, simply it's because he's one of the few people that helps you. And I did not feel any so called "love" from the ML too besides the fact they do all the "couple" stuff which is cute but still feels fake and insincere since it doesn't show and make them more in loved with each other emotionally. (Maybe those action where supposed to show their love progress but I failed to catch on since it just feels more like "this is what we should do to make us look like a sweet couple in love" rather than "I'm happy since she's here with me etc.".
This rushed romance really left a bad taste in my mouth and I was actually expecting her to not end up with anyone.
Overall this is a really fast paced story where it have a lot of plot holes and is good for comedy. The lack of expression from the writing and explanation to link so and so together made me rate this a 3 (average, like this story is there but at the same time not there for me like this story). Tho I really do like this new (at least this is the first novel I read with this) concept on

transmigrating with the original author helping our helping.

Tbh, as much as I would love to look for a lot of positive things regarding this novel, there are so many loopholes I couldn't help but get bothered.

Although it is your typical transmigration story, I feel like everything progressed way too fast. And I mean fast to the point that I'm too confused. The plot, the characters, and the comedy all seemed quite half heartedly done. Especially the plot. It seems to have deviated too much from a normal school routine life split into many random situations. I can't... more>> help but wonder what was the purpose of really staying in the school throughout the novel. At first I thought it'll focus on MC's relationships with the characters but nope! It was as if MC was literally just passerby in the characters life and making up different scenarios in her mind to satisfy her desire of being 'normal'. Although she proclaims that she's an aunt and gave a background story for herself, it didn't seem to fit her character in the story at all.

As for the characters, the only character development I saw was literally cannon fodder A - the villainess. The rest, they were either flat or nonsensical. Although the humour gets exaggerated to the point cliche situations are brought up, but it didn't really garner my interest much.

So all in all, although I would like to give this story a 2 star because of the many loopholes I found + the abrupt ending, I'll give it a three as thanks for the people who gave this story a 5 star that made me wanna read it. <<less

I've read over half of the novel before deciding to stop... the beginning was promising, but FL is just too s*upid? naive? set in her ways?

Anyway, she doesn't act like a grown up in a teenage body - constantly running off to play games, eating junk food, etc while setting higher standards for everyone else...

I personally think that the plot itself is pretty interesting, but the plot moves along way too fast, and there are a lot of places that logic doesn’t apply to. The story itself is a bit cliche but there are some original parts that only appears in this story (at least doesn’t appear in other stories much) I also like the MC, since she doesn’t have “little” misunderstandings like other stories.
Even so, I feel like it’s very a bit confusing, and the story line runs along really quickly, the... more>> MC also claims to be a “aunt”, but she thinks just like a teen, maybe a mature teen who has chuunibyou. I can’t comment on the translation quality, since I read the untranslated version. This isn’t really my cup of tea, so I stopped reading the novel when I felt like it was too far from what I like to read. This is just my opinion, feel free to disagree. Sorry for the bad English. <<less

Could have been better. It has interesting premise, unfortunately, executed poorly. And where the fudge did the plot in the middle came from?!

Urgh. Unbearable.

This is really funny. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I ship Ye Xi with An Mundi and it doesn't look like that will happen. The way the MC and author communicate doesn't feel wrong like it does in some stories when the 4th wall is broken, instead it makes me want more. The misunderstandings in it aren't cringy either, they're really funny.

I actually MTL'd the entire story. It's a very fresh, cute and silly type of novel, however I'm not sure if it's completed. The ending was a bit abrupt. If you are looking for logic in story, you won't find it, but if you looking for some comedy, this is a good novel to read. I hope that author can go back and tie up loose ends one day.

I read the raws and even though the Google translation was really bad, I found it really enjoyable.

The storyline is full of potential, but sadly it is indeed cut short and I wish some events made more sense, or at least the reactions of the characters.... more>>

Ex:After the F4 guy and big villaines die I was surprised by the lack of in depth explanation of the lead' s feelings, as well as the global impact on the novel.


The FL is very likeable, but also very dense. That's why the end for the main couple seems abrupt and not thoroughly explained to me.


Ok she did reflect on her past interactions with the ML and concluded she liked him, but before that we never really saw her being flustered by him


Anyway, I think the story is nice, and the translation work of the official team is very good. Also pls remember that my review isn't fully objective as I read the raws via google translate.

(Ps : Sorry I'm not that good in English yet) <<less

It's fluffy and fun. I went into the story with a certain expectation of where it would go, but it ended up going in a slightly different way. It was a little disappointing, but the story is still pretty enjoyable to read. Nothing special, like the author even forgets about characters, but still enjoyable.

I actually really like this MC. She pulls off the "dense MC" without actually being overboard. Like the things she thinks and the ways she acts is pretty logical and makes sense. It doesn't feel like the... more>> author is forcefully pulling her in a way that makes all the handsome guys love her. It also makes me happy that the OG female lead for once is a good person! Now they're pretty much best friends.

Edit: A big advantage of this story was that it was written to feel semi-realistic. I take that back, it's completely not. Pretty much every single character has no common sense and is s*upid. Putting aside the mindless infatuation over the "princes", the story can't keep itself straight. ML is supposed to be able to read thoughts, but this ability only kicks in when it's convenient for the story. Like the bit where she accidentally goads him into watching porn, what??? So dumb... <<less

So far it’s pretty good. I’ve been reading a lot of revenge reincarnation novels so something light and idk not deadly is what I was looking for lol. Nothing to major has really happened in the plot as of now, but let’s hope it keeps getting better. If you are looking for something light and not super dramatic and doesn’t require a lot of brain power (as of now)... (lowkey reminds me of the Korean drama boys over flowers but told in a different perspective) then I would recommend this... more>> novel. The translator does an awesome job just like all her other works <3 <<less

The novel had its part of fun and somehow, there was also an unexpected tragedy (not on YX and WSL). This is a HE story.

I like how the characters interact, the comedy when YX beat up NGL, YX's internal monologues etc. It was pretty nice when it had its own pace until it was nearing the finale.

... more>>

Around the 40th chapter, the danger came so suddenly. Like, you're just following the shoujo plot then suddenly, it turned slightly above R15 (due to the violence of their pursuers or the part where they defended themselves).


Anyways, it's good read. It's light stuff, and funny without much drama (if ever there was, it was not emphasized). <<less

Cute and humorous story of the 'airhead' MC and the cool thought-listener ML. Because of ML's ability and MC's levelheadedness (at times), there are no s*upid misunderstandings! Could have added more sugar and explored other side stories, but was short and concise, though felt a bit abrupt (especially on romance end).


Especially, was looking forward to the novel impact on the 'real' world, since the author was able to contact the MC, was hoping to see more on that end, instead of a sudden disconnection.

her being able to contact her real world, she can talk to the author


But, for the FL, I would say she isn't the best. She claims to be an aunt, but neither acts or thinks like one, a bit disappointing. As much as I love the story, she's just sadly disappointing.

other than that, a five stars for this! I enjoy this quite a lot. <<less

Very cute story. The main female protagonist is funny and interesting. It's interesting to see how her views developed over time but I wished the author delved more into this. Her interactions with the other characters are also fun too read but I felt like we need more depth on the other characters (or this could be intentional in relation to the theme of the story). Overall, a fun reading experience.

So far, so good. MC transmigrates into a novel based on a school campus, and as it says in the synopsis, the ML can read her mind (it says heart in the novel, but makes more sense if I say mind).

I also like how the author added the original author of the novel the MC transmigrated in, and have them interact.

Translation quality is great, too.

This is actually very interesting. This is a play on the boys over flowers Japanese manga/anime that was made into a drama in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. F4 gives that away. -very good over dramatic story. The Japanese and Korean versions were good though seeing supposed poor girl in expensive clothing was a bit...... the anime was more true to the story than the dramas.

The MC internal monologues shows how utterly s*upid the actions of the people in the story are. This is a story showing the silliness of idol... more>> dramas. Read for the silliness. Will update after finish reading this. <<less
