I'm forced to write this review so I may save future readers from hours of frustration. While this story starts off well, it slowly spirals out of control and lands into a mess. Even the epilogue, ugh! The worst female protagonist ever! She's worse than the air headed bimbo's who only know how to hide behind the hero.

... more>>

For ten years the heroine refuses to tell the MC that she loves him. Did anyone notice that if she did that this story would have finished by chapter 20? Also, for some reason the female characters in this story imply that their crushes have a life long impact on them. Why?! You chose the guy on your violation and now you are sad all by yourself?? What masochists!

What if your love was tested and it failed? Would you give up?

... more>>

Thankfully, fate never gave them a chance to give up. Although HEA is a far fetch concept of their ending. I like to think that at the cost of the long lost years they're apart, they bargained it with the unknown future together. Now that they've known what true suffering means, they developed their patience and tolerance which made them living together stable.


How much is enough until a person break?

This story tells us about a headstrong female who tried her best despite being an average women in terms of intellect and social standing, in a ruthless society of money and business. How life seems to never give her a break. Pride and full of responsibilities, Su Yun Jin takes all the pain inside which developed her from a timid girl who hates to socialize to a confident woman.

filled with regrets and a tragic past.


He is filled with insecurities, how will you make her fall deeply in love with you?

Cheng Zeng, the high school top academic and sports heartthrob, and has a perfect wealthy family. You can glean just how arrogant this type of person is. But no matter how prideful he was, in the face of Su Yun Jin's indifference, this young master is left in a fluster of no words and awkward actions. Their interactions are really bittersweet. He wasn't the most likable person at first but as the story progressed, his love for Su Yun Jin is really deep, almost overwhelming at times, which will make you realize that out of all the male specie in the world, he "might" just be your best bet at being the best man.

"You Are Still Here" is a wonderful read. Through the ups in their relationship to the steep slopes down that destroyed it, the fights and tragic happenings

that brought the two again together.

It'ill make you wonder what sort of emotions you will experience in the next coming chapters. What I like in this novel is how realistic it can be, relationship aren't all flowers and roses, (Thankfully, unlike some novels.) they're not full of happiness, small loneliness, then happy ending. No, it's gritty in its tragedy, because incidents in life will always interrupt and disrupt your life. It will affect you relationship, no matter how stable or in love you are with each other. Love isn't a magic word in this novel that can win the hearts of people, but is a baggage with consequences, You have bills to pay, need food to survive, to decide whose to be in charge of housework, and would require a job to have. And life isn't easier just because a part of your family is super wealthy. You have to earn your own living, and this novel just made it clearer to me that despite all of that, there is still a kind of love that's a life line. The last thread for your sanity and survival. I really enjoyed this novel. I loved it, so please check it out. You will not regret it. <<less

I honestly don't get why so many people seem to find this story and the hero romantic. To me the hero came across as obsessive, irrational, and selfish. Worst, though, is that he doesn't change or learn anything throughout the story. He continually blames the heroine for the problems in their relationship. Yes, she absolutely adds to their problems, but because we mostly get her perspective in the story, we're able to see that she at least thinks about how she is contributing to the problem. We don't get that... more>> perspective from the hero so he just comes across as a spoiled toddler who gets to keep behaving like an a**hole.

I say skip it. <<less

The story follows the relationship between two people over 10 or more years, from an awkward adolescent love to a painful reunion as adults. The male lead falls in love with the MC at first sight, and chases after her, while the MC is hesitant to accept due to her high pride and humble background. The female lead appears meek and distant, however she greatly values her pride and independence. While the male lead is selfish and immature but sincere in his affections. The largest barriers in their relationship are... more>> that the MC is unable to accept the disparity between her humble origins and his affluent background, while the male lead is uncertain about her feelings and insecure about their relationship. Ultimately his perseverance wins her over. Overall it's not the best story nor is it unforgettable, but it’s still a decent but frustrating read. The male lead’s love felt genuine while the female lead's character is quite realistic, though in the end, it felt like she just settled for him since he was there. The chase felt also unrealistic, while the number of ‘sweet’ moments was a little lacking, but the ending itself felt natural, though somewhat overdue. <<less

Like all the stories I read before without even checking if it was good or not. This story made me see and review the ratings and reviews of the readers so as not to commit the same experience again because I honestly don't want to read a story like this again.

I honestly have nothing against imperfect characters because I feel it makes them more human. Because not everything in life is "sweetness", but with this, it exceeds all my guesses. But this story begins with a premise of characters that... more>> you can learn, but, the bad thing is that nothing changes just stay there without wanting to grow as people always blaming anyone but themselves.

The protagonist of all those seen in the different stories I read is the most selfish, self-centered and hypocritical that I read and it is not because of how I treat ML, but rather how I treat herself, since she honestly doesn't even love herself to herself.

For me, the author wants that with a series of mediocre events that we have comparisons of the FL things that in my opinion seem a person with a little intelligence. He would have arrived at a different destination to improve herself and improve herself and not take more people to his unhappy life.

As for the ML, we will say that this, on the other hand, did not know how to measure that a person should not be forced to love since he should know that there is a limit to everything. He had a good opportunity for him, but he still went on and insisted that the FL are people he doesn't want to be. Actually, he also had egoistic love.

Their relationship in a few words is toxic, and I do not agree with their and because if they separate. They do not even deign to forgive themselves and remain as if nothing.


The MC drag with everything is that it has so little brain that it is able to become a lover to drag everyone to its damn bubble. And she has a really ridiculous "justification" for a character who is made to believe she is strong, she has suffered the worst things.

She has the decay of not saying her damn feelings to the person she loves. However, she has so little self-esteem that she clings like a damn bit*h to the first two-legged rat. For what? To destroy more lives and marriages I insist with ridiculous justifications. So I don't know what she is. Of course, the s*upid boy who also helped this silly situation is also to blame because, as they say that to dance a tango, you need two.

- Sarcastic smile: they know that what makes me laugh is that she knew it (I knew I was married) and she does it anyway.


Everyone will say life goes on. Yes, of course, but for you to learn from your mistakes, not for you to lock yourself away or life and justify yourself that this is "unfair to you" as if you were the only person's living things like that. I feel that this story instead of making us reflect on the bittersweet things in life makes me think that there are people who are really "out of their mind" and as I really said at an incredible level of selfishness to want to live such a life.

They will say no, because all people deserve a second chance, if they deserve it, but it is that this couple, as I said, do not even forgive themselves, and their themselves, reach a level that they belittle because if they call that "love" then I now understand because there are -divorces- and deception between couples. <<less

At first I didn't actually expect the emotional rollercoaster this book would bring me. Thus, I expected it to be an angsty book about first love.

As I expected it was about the ups and downs of first love. However, what I didn't expect is the story. While it may have been long and dragging, this story tells us about the reality of relationships.

Relationships like they portray in books and movies, isn't really all happy like they make it to be. The book actually tells us that all humans are flawed... more>> and that we make mistakes, mistakes that are irreversible and will continue to follow us into the future.

But these mistakes are what makes us, our own person today.

While this book may be bittersweet, some views I can agree, some I cannot.

There are some parts in the book that I really found upsetting and rushed but all in all, this was an okay read for me. So, give it a try if you're interested. <<less

F-R-U-S-T-R-A-T-I-N-G to the bones. One of worst female MCs ever. I don't really get her, I mean she's like a walking contradiction... I was hoping she could changed for the better sad to say she hasn't... I read patiently waiting or wishing she could change a bit but never mind I stopped reading it because it's super frustrating to the bones and deeper. ⊂ ( ̄ (エ)  ̄) ⊃

this story put me through an emotional wringer.... but it was also deeply satisfying. the two main leads are both flawed and human.... they make mistakes and hurt each other and other people, not all their mistakes are magically wiped clean by the end of the story and they do have to live with the scars... but life goes on. In the end, they are able to find peace in a large measure, which is the best we can manage in this imperfect world.

Be prepared for a large amount of... more>> angst all around. this is not a fluffy book by any means. but it is satisfying in a bittersweet way. Highly recommend if you are looking for a realistic, bittersweet but ultimately hopeful love story <<less

This novel is one of those that will have you wanting to slap the leads, for the misunderstandings and lack of communication but also in the end, make you really want to cheer for them. Chen Zheng is one of my most favorite MLs ever, because he is straight forward with his feelings and so sincerely devoted, despite her irritating cold behavior. Yes, both the leads are flawed but as I got more invested into the story, I can relate to the theme of sometimes love alone is not enough... more>> and in fact, an excess of it can be destructive... beautifully translated novel. <<less

What if love is not enough by itself? People separates and reunites; love cannot make people forget and forgive as long as they keep being stubborn and refuse to communicate. To be together, words are needed.

“You are still here” moves the heart of its readers and swings them along with the two OTP’s ups-and-downs. Among other Chinese romance novel I’ve read, it is one of the most excellent ones. It takes the old Cinderella cliche through twists and turns that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.

This is a good story with a quite heavy plot emotionally. The love goes with insecurities from both lead characters and give us a lesson on how love means 'give and give'. Many problems arise on their relationship and they were suffering together, no one is the winner.

You can try to read this as your reference, but then keep being optimistic (as I quite troubled on how complicated the FL's mind) as it's only a story.

This novel leans in to the slice of life genre. The characters are flawed to the point that sometimes they're extremely unbearable which is how we humans are. I tend to veer away from this kind of genre because it's confrontational and doesn't give me any form of escapism but I was able to go through with this one although I won't do a reread. Don't expect sweeping romance here, sweetness and bitterness go hand in hand in life and sometimes seeing the ugly consequences of our choices is never... more>> pretty. I liked it but it was a hard read. <<less

This is a typical sad melodrama novel where the characters gets together then breaks up due to problems and misunderstandings (mostly not talking to each other) but this is a good read, I really hope you would read it as it is very eye opening and makes you rethink about feelings in general.

The reason why I gave it 4 stars is because of the ending, I would have rated it lower if it wasn’t for the last chapter. I cried so much that it left my heart all heavy and... more>> sad, reality really hits you with it, all I can say is that guy is a total jerk. Spoiler alert, the ending isn’t about the main characters! <<less

Even though I am not a fan of melodrama I will definitely reccomend this one. The author is amazing!! How she/he portrayed and made the story very realistic. The story is about how two people fell in love in their youth and how they fell apart as a couple living together and the moment they reunited. In my opinion either the author experience it first hand or he/she just have a broad knowledge and understanding on persons emotion and relationship. This is a bit melodrama but I love how the... more>> drama is not so heavy like the once we usually see on TV or romance pocketbook. The main focus of the story is how two people engage in a puppy love story until it bloom in a love and seperation and how they had overcome their differences which is written in a realistic scenes and dialogues. Its true to say that most couple separated not bec. Of family issues and financial probs. Most of the time it is the lack of understanding and acceptance that every individual is different from each other and that is the start where couples start to drift apart unknowingly until it reach the point where the only option is to go on seperate ways. I hope many will choose to read this as this is really a great one and will leave u to ponder on some thoughts specially for those who are in a relationship. <<less

I think it is really a great story. I surprised to know mostly the comments here are left with bad review. What a different taste 😂

It is really a story of human guys 😂 don't expect the female or male characters to be inhumane, the characters really portrayed well the emotion turmoil that we occasionally have when facing certain situations.

I would also complement the translator, she conveys the story's up-down emotions really well. Terimakasih banyaaaaaak.
