Issue # 1: Ran Shu was a top performer before. It is a pity that he now became unpopular through the years.

The younger generation pulls the trigger as the fans are waiting for Ran Shu to see when he will burn thoroughly.

But as if it was only a day and a night, he then returned again on the hot search. However, the news seemed to be a little strange.

# Ran Shu saved a cat and had gotten into an accident in the middle of the night.
# After the haters scolded Ran Shu, the keyboard warriors continued to attack him nonstop.

Issue # 2: Many people knew that Ran Shu had an ex, so his opponent went to look for his ex’s identity so that they can attack him with that. Who knew that it could provoke people that they should not be messing with.

A few days after Ran Shu publicly stressed that he was single, he had gotten drunk in a live broadcast on his cellphone. And from there, he entered Sang Xian’s house while slurring: “Husband, show them your chest muscles! Don’t be shy; my fans are not outsiders.”

It’s a complete reversal of his statement.

The next day, his car was immediately surrounded by his fans. Fortunately, a helicopter came and land on the roof of the building. Ran Shu took the helicopter to leave.

Later, Ran Shu said, “I was indeed single when I declared that I was. Every one of you should read the specifications carefully.”

Issue # 3: What does it feel like to fall in love with Mr. Sang?

Ran Shu: “I am in a bad mood today.”

Sang Xian: “Open the map and buy an island.”

It's definitely not bad, especially if you don't take the plot that seriously and read it for a laugh, but like the MC is a little uhhh extra...


so the MC and ML have this on and off relationship for like 10 years and honestly, if this was real life, I'd be so done. MC breaks up with ML and gets mad over very small stuff 0.0

It's a very funny novel that isn't really meant to be taken seriously. The characters are well written and each have interesting personalities and backstories. Again, it's suppose to be a light hearted novel so I wouldn't say the MC and ML are likeable but they are very human with complicated problems and misunderstandings.

... more>>

The MC and ML has an on and off relationship for 10 years where they fight and break up over very small things or misunderstandings. We later learn that this is actually necessary for them. MC grows up in an environment that makes him very depressed and insecure as an adult. He needs that constant confirmation that he is loved, deserves to be loved and whatever situation it may be, he and the ML can work it out after decent communication. ML on the other hand, experienced a traumatic event where he watched one of his friend's father drown. This makes him have survivor's guilt. He has hallucinations and he's prone to self harm. Having this on and off again relationship allows him to focus on these fights about small things instead of the dark thoughts in his head. Apparently this has worked for both of them and their conditions. It is allowed by their doctor and everyone around them knows and plays along.


Personally, I really like Suihou Yu as a character. He has very firm boundaries and yet very caring to his friends. He understands when to leave a situation but always stand up for his friends when needed. He's honestly such a good friend <<less

I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. It has better pacing and well-woven storyline compared to other many other novels I've seen that really only deserve a 3-star rating (but for some reason have high 4.0+ ratings on NU)

I would not recommend this novel to people who can't handle imperfect main characters. (I think lots of people pretend they can handle imperfect main characters, but very few actually can...)

  • MC is really genuinely annoying. He's the opposite of a Mary Sue/Gary Stu type character who is pitiful, sympathetic, easy-to-like, and always does or says the right things at the rigth time
  • ML in the beginning seems to be a bit too perfect, readers are often left wondering "why is this perfect dude still enduring the MC's crazy antics...." or "MC doesn't really deserve the ML..."
But eventually you'll understand.

... more>> The MC is maybe still a tad too annoying, but he really did grow on me, and he's just such a unique character I enjoyed it even though he made me want to throw him out the window quite a few times (it could also be that the edited MTL doesn't translate well the author's humor when writing him).

A large cast of supporting characters, all of them very funny and very cute. Tons of side couples, and I also appreciated the lack of extreme drama. People are really just people, and some of the villains are super dumb but not as vicious as many caricatures I've seen in the past.


The MC's relationship with his childhood friend is super cute; I love that the author portrayed a jealous ML but still a wholesome friendship and group relationship


Translation was... okay. Barely edited MTL. At least the pronouns were mostly right?


Side note: the netizen comments of "uncle this" "uncle that" is because Ran Shu (first name Shu) is called "Shushu" by the fans (it's cute/common in Chinese to repeat a single-character name twice to make it sound cute, kind of like the English way of adding an "-ie" to words like Inky, Fluffy, Annie, Mommy, to make them cutesy versions). Shushu is a homonym for the Chinese word for "uncle, " so as a spin on "Ran Shu, " his fans call him "shushu (uncle) " and also refer to themselves as "nieces."

ALSO FYI, if you ever use Google translate, and it gives you some kind of unreadable dialogue like "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh", use your keyboard, break it up (put an indent or comma in the middle) and Google translate will figure out the actual phrase. It's a bug. No, the author did not actually write "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"

It’s a relationship normal ppl wouldn’t be able to comprehend as the MC is super high maintenance in the relationship but it is because he is like this that the relationship has worked for so long. They both have their issues and they can complement each other. They do genuinely love each other even though they break up for all sorts of unreasonable reasons. Meant to be light hearted.
