When I Quit Being A Wicked Mother-in-law, Everyone Became Obsessed With Me


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

A wicked woman who is feared by her husband and her son.

A mother-in-law who is abandoned by her family after tormenting the female lead.

That was me.

So I brought my young daughter-in-law who was abused and raised her.

The only goal is to make the female lead take my side!

If I succeed, can I avoid the cruel ending of the novel?

… That’s what I thought.

“Mother, the weather is good. Could you please take a walk with me?”
“Mother, I baked cookies myself. Try a bite.”
“Mother, mother….”

My young daughter-in-law always follows me around, leaving behind the boy who will become her future husband?

“Mom, I like Lily, but I like you better.”

My son, who was scared of me, whispered with a shy face.

“Madam, how long are we going to use separate rooms?”

My husband, who was always cold, looked at me with honey dripping eyes.

……Why is everyone acting towards me in such a way all of a sudden?

I gave this novel a two-star rating. Usually I’m a sucker for cliche transmigration novels but this, sir ain’t it. Like in the preceding review stated, I too am also irked by the cliche 'clueless transmigrator who changed things and becomes nice doesnt understand why everyone's so nice to her'. I feel like that’s just being brainless. Like what in the world would you expect. Since you know the whole novel and how mean the original mother-in- law was, why didn’t you start from taking things slow? It’s like if... more>> she transmigrated into a dragon and approached a farmer, she would still ask why the man peed his pants when he saw her.
And the FL has no background whatsoever. I didn’t hear about if her grievances of leaving her own world to come to this one. The FL just straight accepted everything so easily. She didn’t feel bad for saying someone else’s husband and child were her own. I get that the man and the child were beautiful but at least have a sense of shame. <<less

Umm... I guess its fine?

Its just that... does the thought " My son might get more heartbroken seeing me, her mother, who always neglect him return with another child and showing so much affection to that child? " cross her mind?

it really just break my heart. She should have tried a little more to him before taking the FL.

I would be honest: I don't really like the story because of that (my complaints above)

i just wish things turn to better soon.

Although the other reviews have given it a low rating, I think it isn't so bad.

The fact that the MC adapted quickly to her new role isn't anything new, a lot of novels have done it as well. After all, the transmigration trope has been used so much we all already know how it goes; so it isn't strange that the author skipped it and focused more in the current events.

And I have to say that the story is excellently executed, giving you the right amount of information to suspect... more>> and question what is real, a biased perception or the result of the work behind the scenes. All while you enjoy the fluff and root for the success of the MC in recuperating her relationship with her son.

Also, the translation is smooth and of high quality.

In conclusion, you don't lose anything in giving it a try. <<less

I'm always tickled by these cliche 'clueless transmigrator who changed things and becomes nice doesnt understand why everyone's so nice to her'.

Like... really?

The summary leaves much to be desired, although I shall keep any further thoughts to myself until after I read through.

That summary is still hilariously cliche though.

I love how cute the story is and the fact that she is growing closer with her son and husband. In every chapter my heartstrings was pulled aggressively. I am totally in love with this web novel (p≧w≦q)

Since I'm still in the early chapters, I wouldn't give it a perfect star. However, I already love the story. Aside from the fact that a lot of stories like this are already out and quite popular, this one is a bit unique from the others. I'm looking forward to the upcoming chapters. I'll have to learn Korean soon, my patience can't handle the waiting but thank you very much!

Idk why people are annoyed by her quickly adapting and fls character in general. I mean sometimes she can be annoying and clueless, but its not that bad... And lets not forget she is in villainess role so ofc shes careful.

I loved how she put the childs teacher in her place and made her kneel🙏. (That probably my favorite ch lol)

Theres not a lot of plot tho kind of boring at times but overall I dont really see the annoying part that much.

the only thing I didn't liked was... more>> how she just randomly brought the girl from the orphanage. Like I know she was mistreated there but still.. it was very random. <<less

I have literally never given any story a 1 star until now.

    1. Characters are written really poorly... the FL is especially annoying and cringe-y with little to no self-awareness. I get that the author mainly wants to focus on the mother-family relationship but c'mon. How poorly the characters are written takes me out of the story despite me specifically reading it just for the cute moments.
        • Spoiler

          FL sees that the orphanage lady is abusing the little girl and were corrupt (taking money for themselves etc) and she literally just leaves the orphanage people alone. Doesn't even mention it to the ML/Duke about those people deceiving him and all that stuff.

        • Spoiler

          FL knows that the head maid was continuously bribed, contributed to bullying the little girl, was suspicious of other things, and she did the LEAST to prevent any of the bad stuff from happening.

        • The characters continuously don't talk about stuff - no confrontation no matter how bad it got, no questions, commentary. It's the most unrealistic bad writing I've ever seen - and I've read A LOT of stories and fanfictions... even wattpad stories are better than this.
    1. The author overuses characters overhearing/over-seeing stuff that the bad guys do. Apparently the family is constantly sneaking up on people doing stuff they shouldn't do. (And nothing happens to the bad guys despite getting caught again and again.)
    1. Bad writing and organization in general - entire chapter full of shallow conversations and thoughts.
    1. I cannot get over how bad the characters are. It's like someone with a child savior complex wrote a fanfic for themselves without any editing or planning.

It's good but don't expect much of a story. All of the villains are 2d and a lot of the conflicts are prolonged for no reason by in-universe logic. It's a pretty cute story though, as long as you're expecting something simple.

Besides the fact that she didn't even tried with eliot before bringing the girl in annoys me a little but overall pretty fun and interesting
