Tyrannical Wang’s Beloved Wife

Description

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

Other people’s bad reputation, if not because of themselves, then it’s slandered by others. Jing Wan’s bad reputation wasn’t because of herself, but schemed by her future husband. Hong Yuan’s bad reputation wasn’t caused by others, but of his own design, only for the sake of marrying the woman he has had eyes on for two lifetimes! One unable to take a bride, one unable to marry. Because he was the number one handsomest man, but she wasn’t the number one beauty. So it was still her who has earned? What the hell?

After marrying, the husband’s close beautiful servant girls didn’t try to crawl onto the bed, but instead served her like an ancestor. The previous stewards didn’t monopolize the power, but instead handed over in great detail all the properties and even the husband’s private funds. So strange no matter how one looks at it! After getting along day and night, she discovered that her husband suffers from a severe case of crazy, please cure! “Husband, just what do you like about me? I’ll change, just please stop being weird.” His disease acting up in seconds, telling you with his actions, just how strong his possessive desires towards you are, that’s how much care you must give back.

Alright, for the sake of his disease not becoming more severe, and seeing how there’s no little three or little four and other little demons, Jing Wan rolled up her up sleeves and went all out.

Novel wasn't too bad initially, but became rather boring with the intense focus on flowers, then became overly disgusting with the ML's actions and behaviors by ch. 65. ML is such a degenerate that any hope of a sweet romance between the ML and FL was squashed completely due to his perverted and obscene actions towards the FL, and she hasn't even met him yet. Seriously, midnight visits to molest her in her sleep is too far gone, especially since she doesn't even know him yet. He stalks her, controls... more>> her entire life, kidnaps her when she's unconscious, and molest her in her own home while she's sleeping. SCUM. BAG. <<less

To be honest the synopsis the author wrote does not do the story justices, because it's nothing like how the tone implies. The story is actually quite dark and serious, and not a purely fluffy romance story, there's a bit of a sarcastic tone too sometimes. When it comes to the politics side of the story the tone reminds me a bit of 'Eight Treasures Trousseau', but the romance is more prominent than 'Eight Treasures Trousseau'. It's like the romance of 'Chongfei Manuel' with 'Eight Treasures Trousseau' level political machinations.... more>> A fair warning though, I am quite bias towards this story mostly because it hits all the points I personally like in these kinds of stories, so the things pointed out in this review are more or less focused on the aspects I liked, but can't define the entire story as whole, and may not suit everyone's taste either.

When I found this story, what attracted my interest the most was that the ML was a 'rebirth' character. Since I purely read these female centric type transmigration/reincarnation stories, I found this aspect interesting. MC is a modern person that reincarnated into this world. Like 'Eight Treasures Trousseau' MC, she recovers her memories of her past life in her childhood. By the start of the story both ML and MC have already been in this 'world' for a few years now.

Spoiler

BTW MC is the same person in both of ML's two lifetime/timeline. She reincarnated into this world and not transmigrated into someone else's body. It does get revealed a bit later on in the story though.

[collapse]

The story on the ML's side is a lot like 'Rebirth of the Malicious Empress', except a more selfish and haughty Shen Miao with a d*ck. Just like Shen Miao, because of the second chance, he's pretty much seen through the true faces of how the people around him are, so he becomes even more vicious and tyrannical compared to how he really was in the past life. His sole focus in this second life is really more so trying to be with MC though. When it comes to MC, he's super possessive and gets jealous easily type, also shameless too. His feelings for MC are pretty much to the point of obsession.

Spoiler

In fact, in his past life he was purposefully raised useless and debauch too. Because then he'd be too useless to fight for the throne, yada yada. If it wasn't for meeting MC he probably would have gave up on life. Her unconditional kindness pretty much changed him, and why he eventually falls for her. MC's death in the first timeline was one of his greatest regrets, so he devotes his entire second chance into trying to prevent her going down that path again.

[collapse]

As for the MC, she's a open-minded and calm person, very optimistic and adapts to all kinds of situation well. She's not stubborn and doesn't view everything in this world from a modern person perspective, she more or less understands and adapts to the norms of the setting. Her being very logical and perceptive is what I like about her the most, she understands what not to do and what she can do, but at the same time isn't completely cold-hearted.

For the beginning part of the story the romance is very one-sided, because as the story starts, MC doesn't even know ML exist and doesn't officially meet him until much later. Though ML is constantly stalking/guarding her, and manipulating things behind the scenes to prevent certain things from happening. A lot of the the story is about MC's day to day happenings and her relationship with her family. MC's interactions with her grandparents are probably the most heartwarming and my most favorite things about this novel.

Spoiler

One of my most favorite scene in the novel is when MC bonds with her grandfather over flowers. Her grandfather is a strict and stern person that everyone in the family is scared of, but he has a love for growing flowers. It's so sweet watching him become like a cute grandpa around MC, and everyone being shocked seeing this side of him.

[collapse]

There's also not a lot of cliche villains or canon fodder in this novel for random conflicts. To be honest in the beginning parts it's a pretty chill slice of ancient chinese life type feel. The antagonists in this novel I find sometimes to be more logical, they aren't purely just one-track minded want power just because of power. They have a deeper psychological reason for their ambitions.

Spoiler

For example, MC's third uncle is her grandfather's only shu son. His ambitions for climbing up higher more so stems from the fact that he's an unfavored son and wants his father to look at him and be proud of him. He's jealous of his di brothers because they 'don't work as hard as him' but are still 'loved' by his father.

[collapse]

Other points I liked:
- The cast of characters are quite colorful and unique; no one is too cliche or a cookie cutter type character too much, they all sorta have their own depths as a character
- Minimal glaring inconsistencies; at least not too many that I've notices, annoys me when authors forgets their own plot
- Her loving and supportive family; not everyone is constantly trying to scheme against or is jealous of her just because reasons.
- MC not doing anything stupid for the sake of plot; I hate when a smart MCs go stupid for plot convenience
- ML's extreme level of pampering MC
- Not every female is trying to get into ML pants cuz he good-looking, in fact most avoid him like the plague; he's more hated than liked.
- ML's servant's salty inner dialogues complaining about their master
- Badass martial art master nanny that guards MC like a mother hen <<less

I figured I could do my part to give back as the audience and as a reader to determine if this is something you from the future would decide to take a chance on.

Summary of Review

    • The writing keeps you hooked without too much infodump and proceeds at a fair pace. It aligns true to the law of measuring what is important to know and tightly presents the kind of perspective that allows for reader interpretation. The ratio and flow is consistent and commendable.
    • There is quite a bit of depth to these characters, and their internal motives create a larger spiderweb of connections which makes it feel more real. Even secondaries are much more complex and faceted; they are given room to breathe and it makes the interplay tense and meaningful.
    • The translator has a solid length in footnotes and explanations, while also drawing attention to specific passages in particular. It's a cut above exemplary and there's even a list of characters as well as glossary for historical notes which really shows the dedication undertaken.
Writing - The writing is very pleasantly shaped around the intentions of what they want to portray. There's a careful cultivation in the balance of describing the setting while also giving background information which seamlessly merges as a narrative to transport. As an artist, the medium would be comparative to watercolors; enough suggestion to boost one's own imagination while emphasizing the distinctive plot points. The writer devotes a portion of attention to the craft and it shines through rather brilliantly. The pacing here is more introspective but it doesn't indulge in lingering; everything has its place and everything has a weight.

Characters - This is of higher caliber than its contemporaries when it comes to showing, not telling. The main character in particular, has a couple of conversations that actually flesh out her reputation; as a reader I do see the sincerity with which she follows the traits the author laid out. Jing Wan is a fascinating person in the occupation of the protagonist because she's a departure from the usual cast. She has a deliberate kind of reasoning behind her actions and she measures these with realistic restraint.

The male lead, Hong Yuan, is also rather interesting in a refreshing way. At the moment more of this is due to his circumstance, given he's lived two lives, but the shadow of his devotion to the MC is one of the critical features which keeps this spinning. You wonder about their history together, and also what his plans for courting are. It feels like there should be a Yandere tag on this, but even in those terms Hong Yuan has some chill and hasn't rushed to press Jing Wan into a romance. Time is still unfolding for the persuasion of love and I value that development highly.

Incidentally, Luo Pei Shan (MC's grandfather) is a favorite and I want to see more cute times with him. The family as has been described has a lot more going under the surface of the water, and can't be easily confined to one archetype. A highlighting instance in particular, comes from Lady Liu-shi from the Third Branch of the Luo family. She is mother to Jing Ling (jealous rival of MC) and in the midst of scolding her daughter over the transparent schemes, you start to feel sympathetic because Liu-shi also has her own trials and tribulations.

It reminds you that all people are just trying to survive. This has political plotting very much at the forefront, and since it's still being set up with all the players I'm always looking forward to the latest update.

Translation - As mentioned, the translator is quite superb with their efforts but they take an extra mile outside of the story to help supplement one's understanding. I especially like the formatting for the list of characters, it's laid out very concisely for reference and I use it when the names are barraging too much. In regards to the footnotes, I enjoy the way they explain the idioms and the translator notes serve an additional layer of engagement. It marks the passage with timestamps, glimpses of their own personal life and sometimes bits of information that spark an illuminating thought. The update schedule is also rather amazing, twice per week and I feel rather spoiled. I'm grateful they picked this up and decided to share the lovely story as it hits five points in my targeted heart range.

On an aside, there will be aspects which are problematic in this story; as there is in everything. It's the prerogative of the audience to know their bottom lines or dislikes and give their opinions accordingly. This still has some truth of those that perhaps have not even read it yet, particularly in the case if it hasn't been tagged appropriately. I am a firm believer in trigger warnings and the like, so I understand if something potentially iffy comes up in a situation. However, I also feel like exploring certain darker emotions and the like can be very cathartic and even enjoyable especially in the safe space of fiction. I am not one to kinkshame, much. I feel that as long as you know what you're getting into by reading the summary and managing your expectations with what the setting the author has provided, then you have been sufficiently prepared moving forward. There is basis insofar as debate and discussion on what portrayals of healthy relationships should be like but every person's journey defining that by experience will be different and we can only hope to draw clear lines where able. So tagging and calling out issues etc. The twists and turns that come, if it doesn't work for you then it doesn't and dropping the story is also perfectly acceptable.

Finally, I am ending this rather overwrought with ridiculous prose review, with things I enjoyed:

    1. The genuine affection between Luo Old Madam and Luo Pei Shan. It was very bittersweet a realization to know that they both acknowledge that she could have stood in his home as the one and only. But she decided not to wreck their harmony with being more selfish and both my head and heart understand that ache.
    1. Aaahhh, the whole thing about the ink orchid, how Grandfather Pei Shan understood Jing Wan wasn't intimidated or fearful of him which in turn makes him happy. Because I feel that feel!! And then! When her father sold her out by mentioning the insights she had, to the grandfather, the follow up of that! It was just so heartwarming for Pei Shan to state his support for finding a good marriage for Jing Wan I was like ;A; and then TT^TT when he encouraged her to read up on the newspaper of political stuff! Trusting in her ability!
    1. The introduction of the fact that, to the public, the ML is infamous for indiscriminately favoring beautiful men and women for only 7 days of pampering. For context, it's to prop up his bad reputation due to //spoiler// plot reasons. Which I don't know yet, but his identity seems rather complicated from hints received? I just found it really funny because it makes the "curse breaking" that much more sweeter. Reformed rakehells are <3
Okay, wait, I also want to spoiler two passages to give a bit of taste!!

Spoiler

CHAPTER 10 - Grandfather Luo Pei Shan's thoughts on Jing Wan

He'd never thought himself to be a good person, but he wasn't someone who purely pursued after benefit and power either. Everything he did, no one in his family refuted, all believing it to be reasonable and expected. He himself was also accustomed to this. However, after hearing his second son relay those words, it suddenly provoked a feeling of being trusted, understood, and acknowledged. Seemingly, compared to others' 'indifference', this kind of feeling made him happy. It was like as if a person, who was walking alone, suddenly discover that they actually weren't alone. In a place unknown to him, the other person took all his efforts to heart, and furthermore, felt that he did well.

CHAPTER 17 - Grandmother Luo's Husband Qualifications for Jing Wan

When it came to Jing Wan, Luo Old Madam naturally wouldn't be polite, "First, his character has to be good, and needs to have ambition. As for appearances, he doesn't need to be too handsome, but at least needs to be proper. His family situation needs to be simple, especially the future mother-in-law must not be scornful. Best if their personality is more gentle. Our family's second son will probably be just that in this lifetime, so I won't ask for the other party's family background to be extremely good either. It's enough as long as he can be good to Wan Wan."

"This requirement of yours, to say it's high, it's not high. But to say it's low, it really isn't low either."

"This requirement still not low? It's already pretty good that I didn't ask for the other party to not take concubines, not have tongfangs, and only have our Wan Wan in his eyes." Luo Old Madam was a bit unsatisfied with Chen Old Madam's words.

Once her words were out, it really shocked everyone. Who picks son-in-laws like this?

Edit: To the review above.... Um. My review is my opinion, and I'm sorry, but I don't really care if the ML shows his 'passion' to the MC only. Full offense, but there's NEVER a justification for a man taking advantage of a woman, even if it's a supposedly 'awkward' situation where it's his first time and he loves her. I don't care at all, and frankly, the fact that you're excusing a man's actions in a situation of s*xual assault (especially when one is a minor) is an insult... more>> to all the women who are and have been victims of s*xual assault.

Anyway, I hate polygamy too, but that's not my issue with the story here. My issue is that his 'passion' presents as unhealthy possessiveness to the point where he regards the underage MC as his possession basically, and it's dangerous to romanticize dark emotions like that, when they usually end up leading to not only toxic but abusive relationships. Especially when you have young, impressionable readers saying they wish they could have a boyfriend like that....

Also....I don't like TMR either, so I'm not sure why you brought that up lol. I dropped that novel when I read the spoilers of that scene in question, and there's no double standard here: Maybe it would be if I liked that story while hating this one, it would be, but I hate both equally lol. Although maybe I dislike this one more, because the ML is a freaking psycho. The ML in TMR is a man child, but he doesn't behave as atrociously as this one - but don't get me wrong, I still don't like him lol.

--

No offense to the translator, who does an amazing job, but the romance in this story is deplorable and downright unhealthy.

I was going to put this point at the end, but I realized this is what made me so mad and disgusted: It's from the spoiler thread, but it was so disgusting I'm not going to put it in btwn spoiler tags:

There's an incident where the ML kidnaps the MC and when she is unconscious, the ML touches her all over and squeezes her breasts, saying how even tho they're small, they are still 'tasty' and that they have a few years to grow.

Not to mention that she's a minor and the ML is an adult, even if they were both adults, this is something so disgusting and extremely problematic that I'm not sure how no one in that spoiler thread didn't react violently to it. Like..... s*xual assault will NEVER be acceptable, and the way the ML touches her all over without any consideration for her opinion (and when she's unconscious!) just shows how he views her as his possession - no matter how the story tries to convince us the readers he 'loves' her.

If this is the type of love you're into, then I'm sorry, but that is just appalling. There is nothing you can say to justify this as 'romantic' or 'healthy', especially when so many women are suffering from s*xual abuse and rape worldwide at the hands of men.

Now onto my other points:

For starters, it's between a 22 yr old man and a 14 yr old. Don't try to justify it by saying it was acceptable back then. It was only acceptable back then because women had no rights and men were allowed to do whatever they wanted with them. Just because it was 'acceptable' back then doesn't make it suddenly okay or justifiable, especially when stories like this is what normalizes obviously horrific and pedophilic relationships between minors and adults. It's never okay. (Also, I don't give a crap if the MC's soul is 36 or whatever lol, it's still creepy af. Especially because the ML doesn't know that.)

Secondly, simply put, the ML is a psycho. A yandere if you're familiar with the term. Many people like this type of ML, and to each their own, but don't realize the unhealthy implications it has. The reason why I dislike this type of ML so much is because they are possessive to the point of insanity, and if the object of their obsession ever rejects them, they will either A) kill them or B) force themselves on them. Idk why that's attractive to so many people, especially when that's grounds for an abusive relationship, but there you go.

And that's where I'm going to stop. I could keep going on, but I'm just so thoroughly disgusted by this story and by its proclamation of it being a romantic story that I'm going to go calm down. Also, once again no offense to the translator, but comparing this story to Chongfei Manual isn't doing it any favors - especially when that story is very clearly a romance between a pedophile and his groomed victim. I'll never forget the phrase I read in that story, which I had enjoyed previously when I was much younger and not aware of the implications it had, where the ML of Chongfei Manual is happy to see how the FL "his little flower" had grown - which is just how I've seen in shows and such a pedophile would refer to their victim. I remember even reading someone's comment on how creepy that line was, and if it were anyone other than the ML, it would be very creepy. YUCK. (ALSO: It's so weird how the prince ML keeps hanging around a freaking 6 yr old and is interested in her, ugh I'm getting sick just thinking about it). <<less

Re: 1 Star review - I completely get the disgust in men taking advantage of women but in a way, if it is the awkward way that the ML will show his passion for the only woman he will ever be with and love, perhaps we can give the author, translator, and ML a little break and not give 1 star only. Honestly, I think I feel that same anger when I read about polygamy yet I tolerate it with the understanding that it happened in history, people have been... more>> able to change their values/traditions knowing what is moral and sometimes polygamy may further the plot for this genre of literature. At least the ML in this novel is unwavering with his love for the MC.

Interestingly, when I read the scene the 1 Star Reviewer was describing where the ML takes advantage of the MC, it sounded so familiar and I realized that it is a lot like Transmigrator Meets Reincarnator (Ch 404)... I think Chu Lian is 14 when that scene happens as well. Anyways, that novel has great reviews despite having a similar situation. I'm not saying TMR should get a lower rating (I love that novel) I just didn't like the idea of double standards. I'm sure that I will make my personal judgement when I come across the scene... which I have't read yet because the translator hasn't gotten that far yet (I hope the negative review won't scare the translator away!) <<less

This story kind of hooks me up. I started reading it just because the rebirth if ml. But it has this mysterious feel to it, unlike many in which they state the previous life in few sentences. I like MC alot, she's reasonable not haughty. She's what we call realistic unlike those who MCs who just destroy people who they think are irritating. It's realistic in fact that the villains are Villains for a reason, each have their own story unlike other stories where people want to destroy MC just... more>> because they felt her unpleasant. Its quite a good one and realistic one <<less
