Xia Ye is pressured by her mother to either land a golden rice bowl (good paying job) or find a golden turtle (rich husband).

So the stakes are high at her latest job interview. Driven by desperation, Xia Ye comes up with a devious plan to drive away the other candidate. Of course, things do not go as plan when the other candidate turns out to be her interviewer!

From Shusheng Bar:

I: “General manager, I only said I will cook but did not agree to wash the dishes.”

Him: “If you don’t wash the dishes, do you expect me to wash them?”

I: “Do you know a woman is most attracted to a man who can do housework? Especially when he is wearing an apron and washing the dishes. This is the ideal image of a good man in the thinking of a majority of the women. In order to create the perfect image of a good man, I feel it is necessary for you to wash the dishes.”

Him: “A man who washes the dishes is really very attractive?”

I: “Really!”

Him: “Well, I will believe you this once.”

Him: “Xia Ye, come into the kitchen.”

I: “Do you need me to help you with something?”

Him: “Just stand there and don’t move.”

I: “…..?”

I: “If there is nothing I can help you with, I’ll go out.”

Him: “Standstill!”

I: “You asked me to come in, just to….. watch you wash the dishes?”

Him: “If you don’t watch, what is the point of me washing the dishes?”

I: “…..”

He is distressed: “I fell in love with a person, but I do not know how to say to her.”

I suggested: “This is simple! Directly tell her I love you, should be all right?”

He is worried: “But …… I’m worried that she will not accept me.”

I comforted: “How can since you are such an outstanding man? There must be something wrong with her brain if she doesn’t accept you!”

He nodded: “Well, I love you!”

I: “…… Huh, there is something wrong with my brain ……”

He: “……”

This story is okay if you want some mindless reading. I came here because everyone said this book is like Shan Shan come eat. The only thing similar is the boss-subordinate relationship. Which was done better in the other book. The first chapter was hilarious. I love books that just pull you in from the very first page. Then I got to know the characters and I was just not interesting and didn't care about what happened to them at all. ... more>>

First off, I did not like the main character Xia Ye. She is just so greedy and stupid. I have never read about a character who is so blatantly greedy. It is said that she takes after her mother who is just so ridiculous. This is part of the joke of the book that Xia Ye always falls into Lu Jun's traps because she is so greedy. It gets old after awhile. I start wanting something new but there is just no character growth.
Lu Jun is also too black belly. I never thought I'd say this because I love reading black belly characters but Lu Jun was just too one dimensional. There was no reason given for why he liked Xia Ye. He himself said I don't know why I like you. Even I as a reader don't know why he likes her because she is just written so unattractively. She has a horrible character but we're supposed to be okay with that because she is the main character.


I didn't like it. I prefer situational comedies. Most of the funny parts in the book are all based on different people just coming up and calling Xia Ye ugly. I don't like comedy based on insulting characters. It was similar to making a series of fat jokes about a slightly overweight girl. Except in the book it was an ordinary looking girl who was repeatedly called ugly. It's not funny. <<less

tried to force myself to read this, couldn't.

female lead is gluttonous and selfish. Sometimes it's cute to have a female lead who is gluttonous and not a model, but in this case it just makes you disgusted.

i finally finished trying to finish this novel when I got to the part where she shoves the cookies her boss bought into her mouth like a crazy person. Whether or not he bought them for her, why is she eating like that and acting like his good will is a token to act insane and selfish? Honestly people like this are raised the wrong way. The description of her and her actions are so vomit inducing, as in they make me visualize the disgusting way she eats and the disgusting way she hoards all the food for herself.


she is also very stupid, as in I honestly think she's mentally challenged in some kind of way. No matter how many times the boss tricks her into doing something ridiculous or accompanying him somewhere, she falls for the trick because she is too stupid to remember the last time he did something like that to her. She just conveniently forgets how the boss used to torment her by saying one thing and doing something completely different, and just believes that her boss is suddenly a good person who wants the best for her. It's not even funny how she never learns from her actions.

the part where she got on the bus to escape but tried to go back because he offered her a skirt made me so disgusted.


the male lead is honestly better, but still pretty unlikeable.

at some point he sexually harasses her. I'm not joking or being sensitive. He tricks her into lying down in his lap for an extended period of time, and literally gets horny and hard because he forced her face next to his crotch. It was honestly so gross.

I actually like black belly boss characters, but he was written so awfully. He obviously likes her, but literally does nothing but torment and abuse the female lead. He threatens her constantly, manipulates her, puts her in uncomfortable positions, puts her livelihood on the line, takes all autonomy away from her. He takes her away on a trip she doesn't want to be on for no reason. Honestly his actions might be less creepy if he had just told her his feelings and these events were his way of showing her his affections. But he treats her like crap, makes her think she doesn't like him, constantly calls her ugly, treats her like a maid or servant, then expects her to just know that he likes her. Are you kidding me? Not only is the female lead a moron, he takes advantage of her stupidity to get what he wants, which is ultimately her love or her body or something. Neither of them change or grow into better people. They stay ignorant, stupid, and toxic for each other and those around them. Don't even get me started on the female lead's awful mother, friends, etc. The entire cast of characters is just awful and disgusting, the only redeemable character so far is the male lead's younger brother. I found him very tsundere and cute. Then again I could only stomach up to halfway through the translation, so perhaps I am wrong.

moral of the story: don't read this story if you like well-developed characters who help each other grow and improve themselves. If you're looking for a light read that you don't want to get emotionally attached to or if you don't mind borderline sociopathic characters, this might be for you.

I love this novel so much.

Dense, stupid, and cute female lead doesn't realize that her boss starts to like her. This novel is insanely funny, and their interactions are really great.

The only thing I didn't like that much was the ending chapters, but the beginning was brilliant.

I was looking for a cute romantic comedy story but I've found this one instead. The characters are quite one dimensional. The main lead is just stupid and greedy. I also can't fell in love with any characters, not even the male lead. The male lead is ride, doesn't know how to treat a lady and very self centred.

Cliched but cute story with one major advantage – the jokes are actually funny. It starts off with the heroine, Xia Ye and her boss, Lu Jun starting off on the wrong foot, with LJ taking up teasing XY for amusement. At some point he develops feelings for her from this initial interest (though it makes more sense if he liked her from but start but I don’t think it was really made clear) and uses the same jokes to express his affections but it goes over her head. So... more>> he continues to chase until she relents.

While the humour is quite good, it does prevent LJ and XY from developing their relationship. LJ is a guy with high specs (income, looks, charisma etc) but a sharp tongue and sadistic sense of humour that takes pride in misleading others. However in chasing after a low EQ, low IQ female lead – pretty much every time he jokes or misleads her it sets their relationship back a few steps. It’s entertaining for the reader and for him but his chase would’ve been half as short if he had cut down a bit.

Ultimately their inability to communicate fails create trust and understanding between the characters, but it’s something they’ve accepted for now. Or at least let the author bring out one last laugh from the readers before they start working on it?

I’ve also noticed in a lot of romances, the characters take so long to get their feelings across that they’re practically racing to towards marriage and children when they finally get together.

I liked this novel because it is funny. The reason it is funny because of how dumb the MC is and how she keeps misunderstandings the ML feelings. This novel reminded of a similar comedy style like the manga called Aho girl. If you like Aho girl you will probably like this as well. The criticism is I wished the ending wouldn’t have been so rushed, but for only 42 chapters this story is not bad.

This is tough to review. Firstly, this is not Mango approved. And it is not that it is bad. It is just that... It is basic.

For a josei, all the right elements are present. A fairy tale like love with a dumb female lead and a highly accomplished male lead. Luckily here, the male lead isn't really emotionally stunted.

The series has some decent comedy throughout. And in fact, the romance is also quite very fulfilling. But, all of this is what is expected of this genre. What did this novel... more>> have more?

For one, it was rushed. At least 2 characters who are really really interesting got way too less screentime and background. While focussing on the main romance is not bad, just focussing on that meant that this movel got quite draggy towards the end. The comedy also started waning later on.

And yes, the female lead is dumb. That is the stereotype. But that works as a strength for this particular novel.

All in all, this was a good feel good romcom novel which is however quite... Forgettable. The asence of any drama even though it was strongly bring hinted at means that this feels like an incomplete read.

Perhaps, this author should try to focus more on purely fluff novels, going by the way this particular novel went.

This is not Mango approved. <<less

First chapter was pretty funny, but the more I read the more I got frustrated. The MC is not only naive, but incredibly stupid. Most MC are kind of dumb in order to come off as cute, but this MC's stupidity comes off as opportunistic and straight up ignorant. If you know someone is mad at you, just insulted you, and you know you messed up, the minute he offers you dinner, you know something fishy is going on. Nope, not to MC, she is just thinks "man, he's so... more>> nice all of a sudden!! I want a 5 course meal with 3 desserts!". MC has no redeeming qualities. I just kept face palming and face palming so much that the MC just became cringy to read after a while. What a huge let down.

Highly NOT recommended. <<less

I'm reading it, but the shenanigans this girl gets into are on a Disney channel level. I'm an aging fujoshi (any fujoshi over the age of 16 is old for a fujoshi).

There's no way an office lady ogling a man in a towel after his shower is going to give me a nosebleed. Then she bit his fried egg to make it into a heart shape. I want to yell at her to use a heart shaped cookie cutter. We're just 18 chapters in and that he likes her is obvious and she's degraded to have the intelligence of a 3 year old diagnosed with ADD.


That said I'll read the rest of this story when I have the patience again. This run I made it like 3 chapters, nearly 4.

Very adorable and funny.

Nothing overly dramatic, just minor misunderstandings and happily ever after. Do not read in public, you will look crazy for smiling and laughing for no reason.

It was so funny, I was smiling throughout. Romance - Never knew I could laugh at a romance like this one. It has its sweet moments but always with a punchline or twist waiting to happen.

A cliche 'naive subordinate vs manipulative boss' romance story, but was very funny, plotted nicely and has pretty nice characters. If you like light-hearted romance, or “Come and Eat, Shan Shan”, or Korean boss-subordinate love story, then this one will probably suit your taste.

However, IMO the author’s narrative was a bit lacking. And till the end, there were no hook that is particularly memorable. Of course, it could be simply my subjectivity speaking.

I don't understand how people are giving this a high rating. Giving it a 3 star is a stretch already. MC is very slow and stupid. She has very low self-esteem so she is very slow to understand and accept that the ML loves her. I don't understand how the ML even fell in love with her. Plot doesn't make it clear how, and tries to atone for it with this line:

After another moment, he seems a little depressed and heaves a helpless sigh: "How is it possible for a brilliant guy like me to love a silly and idiotic woman like you?"

It's as if everyone in the story is very black bellied against MC. I personally cannot stand the conversations in this novel. I don't like how the ML... more>> treats her 90% of the time, because of the way he twists his words to trick her. I mean, once in a while wouldn't have been so bad, but it's like it's almost every conversation. Even if you argue that ML is acting tsundere,.. Just, no. It's very possessive and toxic in some instances. Not even romantic. It's as if ML is trying to control her life. MC is a pitiful person with how everyone--even her mom treats her... <<less

I feel like I read a completely different novel to the one they are commenting on.

I found this novel cute and lovely and I've probably read it 5 times so reading these comments, I'm flabbergasted.
