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*

I really like the concept and the characters personality. Despite the very much obvious and multiple plotholes this story contains and the randomly inserted action trope (the forest arc), I could see myself coming back to read this story again. The abrupt ending left me with an itch, and I get why so many people enrage and disappointed but thumbs up for the author for this entertaining story and the translator for the wonderful quality of translations. I'll just pretend their story would still continue but the real story just... more>> ran out of characters so the end didn't cover all their future days. <<less

the plot was intresting and it had potential but I dropped it midway because the plot started getting illogical and messy

... more>>

like yall got lost in a forest, two of your classmates d!ed in the middle of it, and yall went on your own ways as if nothing happened??? And the parents were like oh good, you survived. That's to be expected because we're rich and this happens often. Ok goodbye, try not to die. like?? Anyways, the point is that I dropped it because there were many plot holes and it started getting illogical

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

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

This novel started out so good.

In the beginning when I read F4 I automatically thought of the anime "Hana Yori Dango" and I f*cking HATE that anime! It was so damn depressing and the ending was shit. Anyways.... I continued reading and got so into the novel. It has so many different elements when compared to other novels since the ML can read everyone's thoughts, the FL can talk to the author of the book she transmigrates into and characters that you wouldnt expect, actually die.

The romantic relationship between the... more>> MC and ML is practically nonexistent. All through the novel I can get that the ML is interested in her and slowly falls for the FL but when the hell did the FL fall for the ML??? What did I miss??? I feel like all throughout the novel, the FL just thought of the ML as a friend but then suddenly u get to the end where the FL is like, I live you even if you dont love me.... EXCUSE ME! WHAT DID I MISS????? I felt no vibes from the FL anywhere that I felt like, "Oooohhhh she kinda likes him".

Also the ending is so incomplete. I still cant figure out what just happened. There was so much potential but then everything just goes downhill. A waste of time tbh... <<less

It was hard trying to finish reading the novel. The start was fairly interesting but the development sucked. Especially the ending felt rushed to be completed. There is no romance between the MC and the ML at all! And the author seemed confused about his/her own work.

The novel wasn't amazing and the romance did not really stir up the feels. The whole novel progressed weirdly and ended abruptly. At first I was attracted to the premise but by the end it went to a different direction that didn't really make sense. Don't expect too much, read if you have nothing else to read. The story was kind of bland and didn't leave a lasting good impression on me even though I generally have a lot of tolerance for bad novels. I just find myself disappointed and... more>> questioning what did I just read. I don't think its worth even revisiting, I would pass on this one.

3/5 stars was just a lenient score, it would have been a lot lower.

Although, Thanks to the translators for working hard to translate for readers <<less

I hate how Wei Shenglan thinks MC owes him when it's him who owes her for causing trouble for her. How he makes the misunderstandings worse by saying MC is his girlfriend. I can't keep reading this, if Wei Shenglan is going to be the ml.


I give up on this Novel.

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'm still confused if the author was a woman or a man, this confusing use of pronouns also applied to the leads and supporting characters, but overall the translation is OK.

The first half is somewhat boring and FL reactions are too mild, until the plot twist. There has it's funny moments but not many fluffy moments, think of it as a slowburn in FL side. Not much character development as there was no depth to begin with. Basically a good story to kill time but nothing else.

Translation is ok with errors on he/she pronouns, typos, names etc.

Characters especially the female lead Ye Xi was funny and quirky. But somehow became s*upid. All throughout the story, she looked down on the other characters and usually stress out the fact that she’s older than them and always calling them children or child in her mind. So when she died she was at most 30? And she was quite successful in her career with her own strong persona. So why then during a life and death thing would she... more>> think of them being murderers when what they’re doing is running for their lives and ensuring that they live. Even if they kill the traffickers and murderers, they will not be held accountable. So it’s really idiotic of her not to agree with Nanggong Hai when he proposed to eliminate those that fell in the trap in the woods/forest. When they only injured them, they left behind people who will continue to hunt them to be killed. Which of course they did. When they met the boss in their camp, they still continued with their idiotic acts of not killing them.
She’s all that and claiming that she came from the real world etc and yet failed to grasp the concept of being merciful to your enemies is being cruel to yourself and grasses must be taken out with their roots to prevent them from rising again after the spring breeze. So her behavior in this life and death climax was truly idiotic and doesn’t make sense. Xiuxiu’s naive thoughts are acceptable because she’s around 17-18 years old, and a little rich princess who’s not yet entered the society unlike her.

all the other characters conform with the setting, only the female lead is disgusting due to her idiocy. <<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.

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

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.

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 p*rn, what??? So dumb... <<less

The concept looks great and promising but it fails to live up to expectations. Everything was so rushed and incomplete with many irrational and third rate characters. The novel seems to be incomplete since the ending and the female lead loving the male lead make no sense. Also plot armor is strong here, folks.


What doesn’t make sense

  1. ML's power
  2. ML's sister hostility
  3. How and why FL suddenly like the ML
  4. the F4... more like the F2 as the others besides Nan and Wei serves no other purpose than being cannon fodders
  5. how a bunch of high schoolers with deadweights and no training managed to skillfully take down a crime syndicate who supposedly is a whiz at guns
  6. not getting hit by a single bullet

...I'm disappointed. Truly disappointed. It has such a good concept but it wasn't fleshed out well. Was I expecting writing skills on the levels of Tolkien? Nope. But I did expect common sense & to not see obvious loopholes all over the place. Where is the struggle about the age difference? Fine, she doesn't act her age anyway so I could overlook it. Also, yes, not everyone acts their age so I'll take it. But she really does not act like the backstory given to her. I will still forgive... more>> it because her thoughts are sort of amusing, if you just want a book to pass the time. I would still have given 4 stars if the ending did not put such a disgusting taste in my mouth.


She avoids ML because he keeps reading her mind & there's a point of conflict but it's suddenly resolved with oh I like him, wow I'm such a proactive lady & I told him not to read so he won't anymore. WHAT NONSENSE.


Also, translation is incomplete as the last chapter was not translated. The MTL is fine so you can read it from the link in the comments. Not that it'll give you any true satisfaction.

The brainhole is truly too big in this. Its true that I wanted a junk read, but the reason people go for junk is because it tasted nice even if it doesn't really do much for nutrition. This didn't even fully fulfil that purpose. <<less

Idk I found it bland and they story about MC and ML was very limited. Their love story was rushed at the end.

It might be because I expected more and it didn't meet those expectations hence I found it okay to read for time pass. Not the novel to reread again.

I confused with the ending. They write that there's another chapter they didn't tanslate yet so I will patiently waiting. The story is bland like no future. The original heroine does not have many scene. The plot seems rush and unstable like the author just randomly trow a bunch of thing. There's a lot of plot hole such as why Zaza can connect with Ye Xi after another novel finish? It doesn't make sense since they not even the same novel. They are not connected at all. The romance feel... more>> too bland and still don't know who An Mudie like. I give 2 stars rating because I personally like An Mudie chara. In this novel I mainly read because of An Mudie. Other than that nothing worthy. <<less
