A world famous, beautiful and rich model gives up everything to be with a guy, only to be mistreated and cheated on. She then proceeds to find a better guy to spoil her, and who doesn't mind her obsessing over her past.....

Honestly if she was willing to accept being used in the first place, there's no point being bitter about it after the fact.

Another series for bitter housewives. For a similar stories try Hidden Marriage or Underdog Versus Boss

The plot is rather silly, you need to turn off your logical part of your brain to read this. The character is super silly as well. A 'young' model being ditched on her marriage day, found a silly super CEO, that check her background on the internet for few minutes before decided to marry her. No contract (things like asset, wealth, etc.), just verbal premise (how did he stay afloat in the business being this gullible?). And he being an awesome influential person of the century, help her new wife... more>> by watching of sideline while occasionally give strong momentum pressure on the mass media. The translation is rather good though.

I keep asking myself, 'why do I keep reading this?'

This is a story about a 26-year-old woman who had been oppressed by her soon-to-be husband aka her CEO. Miraculously, on her wedding day, the scum didn't come and she got to marry with the majestic, formidable, cold-to-everyone-but-not-her-apparently, ML. Smoothly, they began their mushy-mushy romantic newlywed life and didn't have their first night yet, well because, I don't know, the ML is already in love with her (although he never heard of her before and who wouldn't love the stranger that... more>> suddenly proposed to you in front of the counter alright?) that was waiting for her to love him back.

Soon began her journey of redemption and revenge. It's alright if she did it to other people because apparently, they all hated her for no reason, just because. They want her dead. Oh, so evil, so evil.

Yet, the loyal husband continue to support her from the back, helping her as much as he could. (Well, he helped her in everything)

The story revolve around our pitiful yet strong, beautiful, and very talented in every aspect.

She's not evil at all, when she destroyed other people career, other people company, other people life. No, it was righteous and self-defense.

There's no fault in anything she did.

Everywhere she goes, calamity will follow her and that's it. That's the story. It was endless, the scandal keep coming up, over and over again. Why not she just kill them? But hey, she's a nice person (a nice person that destroyed people life, but no she can't kill them because that would be murder.)

The end.

Edit : First of all, I'm sorry. Just had to say this.

"If someone were looking for a read that's of true quality and literary merit, why bother reading light novels? Stick to the professional literary circuit and go get books from the local library."

Literally the stupidest thing I've ever read. Not all LN is like this, mind you. <<less

I don't know why some reviews said that this story is not interesting and not rational. Maybe, because they haven't completed the whole story yet. At first, I didn't expect myself to love this story so much. I admit it's not my number one favourite but still among the top.

Yes, there may be so many obstacles along the road and it might seem illogical but one strong reason is that the female MC stand in the way of too many people and because she wanted to change the entertainment industry... more>> itself which is difficult.

And I really love the relationship between the MCs. It's a mature relationship with no childish tantrums and complete consideration and understanding for each other. People might think it's fast but judging from my own experiences and real life observations, fate can happen in so many ways and theirs are very reasonable.

It's a roller coaster of emotions I must say. I thought that it would be like other novels where everything will definitely go on their direction, but to a certain extent the plot really surprise me sometimes it caught me off guard. But that makes it more realistic cause life doesn't always go the way you wanted no matter how smart, kind and cautious you are.

And what I like the most is the relationship between people and understanding of human nature. It shows that you have to pay the price for your actions and anyone can turn around if they're willing to. One sentence in the novel said that in this world there is no absolute right or wrong.

Lastly, and surprisingly, I like the ending. Most novels have a rushed ending which ends at the wedding scene or so many questions are left behind. But this novel's ending really achieved the objective of the novel in my opinion that I really cried cause it's too beautiful. Of course, there are a few questions left but otherwise, when the story can end if you keep wanting more.

In conclusion, I recommend this for those who wish to read a novel with a more mature view because this is for those who are patient, love one-on-one mature marriage and can withstand emotional scenes. <<less

This is a pretty easy read but things are moving way too quickly to the point that it's even more unrealistic than normal. It's pretty much pure fluff but I can tell from how many chapters there are, there's going to be some ridiculous plot holes and twists going on. It's still a pretty good read though.

Spoiler

Like the synopsis says, the MC finds out that her fiancee has been cheating on her and on the day that they were going to register their marriage, actually threw her aside for his mistress/true love. That's when she meets the ML and the two immediately get hitched. The MC actually goes with the ML to a hotel room and agrees to have s*x with him because hey, why not? Except, she's a virgin and the two don't go further. Like, I get one night stands but you don't go from hey, let's get hitched so I can get revenge on my d-bag fiance to meh, we're married, let's have s*x. Either way, the ML treats the MC very well and doesn't try to force the MC to do anything that she's not comfortable with so that's a huge plus in his favor.

[collapse]

The two villains, as of chapter 18, are the fiance and his mistress but they're really just plot devices who aren't too special and don't really accomplish anything. They're pretty weak as far as villains go.

Spoiler

Also unrealistic... the two of them almost have s*x in the same room that the MC was "sleeping in" before moving on to have s*x in the restroom, all within hearing distance from her. Um. Okay. MC was drunk, not dead.

[collapse]

Overall, it's an easy read that doesn't really require any thinking. You're not going to get anything of substance from this but it's a nice way to pass an afternoon. <<less

I don´t know what it is with this story but I can only say I love it! Yes, the way their relationship starts might not be realistic and there is a whole bunch of annoying people (especially the public), but in the end for me the heartwarming moments are too pleasing to dislike this story.

I also love the ending. We get to know a bit about all of them and finish with a romantic moment between Ning and Ting.

I did read the MTL for this story so I was quite happy to simply skim through the annoying chapters (full of people being jealous or just plain idiots). I´m pretty sure my rating would be a little lower if I had to wait for the next release before these moments are over.

Not a transmigration story or do over, but it sort has a similar feel. Because at 26 years old, a shut out runway model decides to suddenly make a life change that is completely different from how she lived before.

MC is a beautiful model with a cheating fiance who is constantly being stepped on by her family, fiance, fellow models, and basically everyone. When her slag of a fiance rushes off to go to his side girlfriend, the MC is left basically with no groom at the Civil's office. After... more>> overhearing another groom who is missing his bride at the Civil's office too, she decides to ask the guy to just marry her instead. This choice sets off the novel from basically a rags to riches type of theme.

The romance is pretty sweet with the MC suddenly finding the courage to challenge anything and anyone who stands in her way because now she finally has the emotional support behind her.

As for the all the plot machinations in the story, they get kind of repetitive. Because the MC is in the entertainment business, all the plot devices involve some sort of public slander, and then evidence of the actual truth. Followed by the MC's ultimate revenge on every one of her foes. The amount of villains in this series is non-stop. As soon as one is dealt with, another one pops up. The strange thing is that most of the villains become villains initially for really small reasons, like they are jealous at first sight. Being in the business for so long, all the foes based on such petty reasons seems repetitively boring.

At chapter 748, it's still ongoing and the romance is still strong, while new villains are continually coming to the fore. It's a relatively short read, but filled with a lot of action and plot. <<less

Firstly, set in modelling industry and not in movies. That is a plus for unique. The husband is Rich and powerful but it is female MC... ok.

First off, I rate this a 3. As in, you can read this. But ONLY if you have nothing else to read or you are looking for just random reads. It follows a daily soup kind of plot, with one drama event after another with no 'actual' long term plot or foreshadowing ever. It is just the serial for middle aged house wives.

Instead of... more>> focusing on the fluffy aspects of the genre, the author focuses on the actual profession and the sweetness of their relation. Good step. But what next? It maintains the same stuff, with one jealous enemy after another.

The female lead has an inconsistent personality. I will say this now: She has talent, but she made it big by telling (whether she wanted to or not) to her husband. So, anyone looking for a girl power series... This is a stretch.

The male lead is possessive... Like every other make lead. The enemy characters... Better not to talk about them.

The supporting cast gets some good romance/screen play, but not appreciable/good character development.

The face slapping and drama elements keep this popular... Not to mention the fan service s*x. Good soft core material.

Overall, more of a 2.75 rather than a 3. And you can bet that this will have a LOT of chapters, and the vague long term plot (if present) can be guessed after just reading the first chapter. Yup.

Perhaps I should change my rating...

Think of this as the female Emperor's Domination. Just, this has more competition. <<less

The premise attracted me to start reading because I was curious of the things she has planned to exact revenge. After she has done that things became a same-scenario cycle thingy. Almost like, the world is out to get her and since she's so amazing and is secretly married to an even more amazing man nothing can pull her down from the pedestal she worked hard on. (Tangning is amazing, I'm not being sarcastic.)

Oh well, I'll read again after a few hundred updates.

It's a fairy tale in the modern setting. Abused and helpless girl meets prince charming who sweeps her off her feet and offers her the world. In that sense, it delivers what it promises. It's cute and fluffy between the main couple, with everything dazzled and in bright lights; meanwhile the villains are painted as petty, senseless and outright nonsensical in every angle. Again: fairy tale.

Everything here is meant to be enjoyed as romantic fluff or virtuous face-slapping.

I don't know why people are complaining it's silly and illogical. If someone... more>> were looking for a read that's of true quality and literary merit, why bother reading light novels? Stick to the professional literary circuit and go get books from the local library. <<less

I guess the plot is not exactly super realistic, but I still like it.

There's a lot of face-slapping and scheming going on, so if you like those kind of stories then this is for you. I feel like the author explains the behind the scenes very well, and it also gives me a feeling of happiness when bitches get what they deserve.

I don't know exactly where this is going, but I at least the schemes aren't really repetitive, plus the the main guy isnt totally spoiling her. They are a... more>> power couple in progress. I would recommend this story to others, give it a chance and if this isnt your cup of tea, then thats fine too. <<less

The plot is silly, really. (Sadly, not silly enough to get you laughing). I kept reading, chapter after chapter, hoping something would stick out, but no.

It is a fairy tale for kids with the added benefit of the prince helping his princess plan a little revenge for some inept negative protagonists. Everything is smooth sailing. There doesn't seem to be any challenge, cleverness of dialogue, suspense, intrigue or even gratifying romance. No fun side characters, just some supportive irrelevants.

Suspended logic is a common requirement in many novels, because it's fiction... more>> and leeway is allowed, but this is just meh.

It is unfortunate because the translation is good. I hope they pick up better stories next time. <<less

I do like this novel quite a lot but, I keep having to take breaks from reading all the time. Literally, S*** happens to the main character all the time for no reason. It's as if the whole world is against her from doing anything. The main character always says she wants to do things on her own but than the main lead goes in and settles everything. The face slapping is really cool but the whole S*** keeps occurring will get old fast.
Spoiler

seriously even with all these achievements under her belt, some random person that knows all about her infamy of getting back at her opponents tries to screw with her. They even mention diaglogues about how cold the main character is about getting revenge for things but they still go ahead and do it anyway. Knowing behind her is the main lead with his vast empire.

The MC lived as a cicada for years. Then the cicada turned into an oriole.

No will, blind bad love, gave up everything for a scoundrel that betrayed her all the time. Then she find out about the mistress, but went to the CAB on the next day (where she was supposed to marry the scoundrel) anyway (guess she was waiting to see what would happen or maybe still had some hope). There she found the ML who was supposed to be marrying someone to, but that woman was late (late to marry the godly handsome and powerful entertainment king, she is probably crazy... I would have camped there) and for some reason (family pressure? Never heard about it later), he had to marry that day.

Then... She proposed.

Yeah, like "So, my fiance is with his mistress, your bride is crazy, wanna marry?" and he was like "Assistant, google her... Yeah... Hum... Ok, I accept. But you have to live with me in my spanish-palace-style super-expensive house, stranger.".

So... I was not even sure why she decided to marry a random guy. Okay, not so random. Hello? Godly handsome and powerful entertainment king there! But, anyway, within two seconds she decided to marry him, get the so called fairness (revenge, baby) and end her career hiatus as top model. And boost her career through revenge.

Tcharaaam, instant couple! Don't even need to boil it for three minutes!

They act like a married couple: cooking together, worrying about each other, fluffy, fluffy, fluffy. BUT, no love yet. Like ML said "If we keep our figure like this, we'll never have to worry about divorce". Yeaah, all about "I'm in love with the shape of you". But they are all fluffy anyway. Ah, of course, MC was virgin and the ML decided to wait, because for some reason he decided he wanted not only the body, but the heart of this strange too. Of course (again), they ended up doing it anyway, since I guess it would take too long to wait.

After a while you think "wow, their relationship progressed so much!" and then ML and MC let this out: "I like you so much, miss you so much, maybe even love"... WHAT!? Only now its >maybe< love????

I was like "Its one of those forever histories..." (which I like, but I was sure this history would not have a slow development as ML and MC decided to marry in two seconds and acted like long time married couple after one blink.)

MC's long term goal is to reach the top to be proudly side by side with her OP husband. "Mini-missions" are all about someone trying to ruin MC's reputation for [insert futile reasons here]. Short term goal is, I guess, revenge? Deal with dumb villains?

MC is... She wishes that her husband don't overwork, but keeps interrupting his job, asking him to go with her everywhere out of blue, making him work for her... She is a hell of a job! I want to slap her! She is so independent, but can't stand to be away from her husband for one day. Her husband is having migraine and MC... CRY!!!! He is suffering and the one crying is her! So ML has to deal with the pain AND with the crying wife. Double trouble, yay. RUN!!

Dude! Stupid couple! Hubby / Wifey slave!

Also, she is famous and not so famous at same. I can't completely understand how fame works in this novel. In the end, I guess that background is more important than talent since MC is so OP when she is working. And she always hit the target (best results/top quality), but models with more works (ordinary results/ordinary quality) are the ones to get the cherry. WHAT!

She said to ML "do not use your influence to help me, I want to use my own strength!", but most of the important parts are done by him. Her schemes, two layers tops. ML, sadly, not doing so better. Wife slave, cool, kind of wild, but his main weapon is his power and his money. Dude, you can do anything with those two and don't even need to think too deep. I'm kind of surprised a man with so much power and money decided to marry a stranger. I guess a divorce must be as easy as drink water to him, so, whatever.

I need to say, her type of blind love is just... She gave up her top model career, her family (rich, of course) and even herself for a man that never really loved her. Sad... but the revenge is the sweetest.

I can totally see this novel as a world of a worlds-system novel. The protagonist is not as smart as she think she is and could be taken down by a soy sauce MC. BUT, thats just because I love deep and clever plot more than I like fluffy.

I know relationships are like onions (Shrek feelings), layers and layers... But at least don't peel off all the mature layers! How come they understand each other so well, but you don't really feel it? How come I can't see all the love on the details? So, they hug each other, snu snu, love declamations, knight in shining armor... And the rest? Its a typical recipe of the shallow part of a relationship. The real emotional part needs more than this, so, sometimes, their love looks so... not real. MC reminds me a leech and a forever damsel in distress.

[collapse]

The history is shallow and not as clever as it wants to be. But a good read to pass the time. Comparable, maybe, to a chic-lit.

The slow pace is killing.

The quality of the history improved from the first chapter until 238. The history lost a bit of the shallowness.

The translation is awesome. <<less

I honestly quite like this story but after 150 chapters the plot just keeps repeating itself. Someone jealous or angry with the female protagonist tries to block her path to success by making some scandal about her online or somehow makes her look bad, the female MC keeps her cool and one-ups the antagonists with the male MC behind her all the way using his money and reputation to help the female MC. At first it was sweet and I looked forward to reading how the MC would resolve the... more>> problem but I'm at chapter 192 and it has been aroubd 5 times and to be honest it's starting to get old.

It's not even legit struggles with her modeling it's just people scheming against her. There's no scene so far where she struggles to internalize how to get into character she's just automatically in sync with the clothes she's wearing. Like she wears it and bam she has the right aura or something. I liked this at first then I realized it was the first time she even saw the gown and she has it down pat. The author doesn't walk us through how she became one with the dress... She just did cause she's that OP.

I might get back to this later... Hopefully there's more to the story than the redundant part I've pointed out. <<less

Very light reading material, on par with daytime soap opera. The heroine's confidence and ability makes you wonder what exactly caused her to land in her predicament as outlined in the early chapters: the transformation from a weepy and bullied woman into a self-assured and level-headed one is very sudden considering that this is not a transmigration or second-chance story. The antagonistic cast remains stupidly unaware of her change in personality and kept on underestimating her abilities, to the point that they really deserve the simple (but effective) payback she... more>> is doling out.

From the synopsis you might be fooled into thinking that the heroine and the male love interest would need to endure long bouts of conflicts and misunderstandings. Fortunately the story dispenses the need for the "melting iceberg" type of character: the pair very quickly (some would say too quickly) declare their love for each other. Over the course of 30 or 40 chapters they work seamlessly and harmoniously as the heroine goes about fulfilling her ridiculous contract with the antagonistic modelling company.

This novel is obviously targeted at female readers: a determined female character who rose from the ashes and a strong and wealthy partner who oozes alpha male appeal. There is little time to dwell on the bizarre circumstances that they meet, suffice to say it's a story centering around an attractive couple surrounded by jealous and petty characters whose greatest foes are the internet and camera phones.

For casual reading. <<less

If you're looking for a good plot, character development, or something that will blow your mind, this may not be the novel for you. However, if you want a story about a power couple that supported each other as they overcome their obstacles in order to obtain their dreams while living their lives as a happily married couple, then this is for you.

I admit that I picked up this novel just because of the above reason. Before this, I just came off the wagon of Hidden Marriage, Evil Consort, and... more>> Transmigration vs. Reincarnator. Thus, it just made sense for me to continue on this path until the good novels that are I'm really waiting for such as Memory Lost, Pristine Darkness, and a ton more to finish translating. So long novels like these help pass the time.

TBH, I wasn't expecting much from this novel but the same repetitiveness (which it got plenty of), but I really liked the couple's devotion and support for one another. It's something I cherish in a good novel because this has always been my vision of how a couple should be. It the love and emotional side of the novel that moves me (a reason why romance is my all time favorite genre.). I ashame enough to say that I primarily enjoy novel based on whether or not it is capable of moving my emotions and this novel has many moments when it did.

If you're looking for something similar but with better plot and characters, then this story is definitely similar to First Marriage, Then Love. That one will be much shorter, just as sweet, but has better story and characters development. Since I'm on the topic, I would say Marriage Concerto is also well done with the added benefit of giving its readers lots of cavities which will eventually lead to diabetes. LOL. Don't believe me? Try reading it.

Sorry for a crappy review so far, but I'm not even halfway through yet so I'm just stopping here to give some of my thoughts. After I finish, it might change but for now, I'm really enjoying it. <<less

This story is fun only up until our main leads announce their marriage publicly, after that it gets so annoyingly infuriating. The story is a constant endless loop of the same face-slapping climaxes, some of which could have been avoided entirely if our main character wasn't so prideful and secrative. The author is just dragging out the story needlessly. After the end of this arc, unless someone can tell me a change will come, I've decided to drop this novel for good.

For a “trial” marriage, the trial period sure didn’t last long. My netflix free trial lasted longer. The MC and ML fell for each other so damn quickly without much basis, that’s why people call this novel is irrational.

I wish this story didn't rely too heavily on those scandals.. really, it's exhausting and at this point all I'm begging for is someone with brains... Like you know doesn't immediately jump on the bandwagon and sees her as an enemy... Or even if they do, use clever schemes with valid reasoning.
