Translation: 6/10, decent quality.

Story: Cute, fluffy story! A short & light read centered around a misunderstanding that thankfully gets worked out fairly quickly.

Shou wife mistakenly believes Broken leg gong is leaving him for his previous crush. Turns out that's not the case at all - husband actually had a surprise proposal in the works! I mostly liked this story but there some elements I didn't enjoy. For example, Shou wife is such a stereotypical "traditional wife" who does all the cooking & cleaning despite both of them having jobs. Hey husband, your leg wasn't broken for the 3 years you guys were together so it wouldn't hurt to help out with chores even if you're a sh*t cook lol! Even when Broken leg gong recalls the moment he fell in love with Shou wife, the major difference between his affection for Shou wife & former crush Bai Yueguang was that Shou wife was obedient & shy, and bakes & cooks well. Like yes, I do believe Broken leg gong does love Shou wife, but would be nice if he expressed it differently. Anyway, that was just a bit of an annoyance but I still thought it was a fun read. Plus, there are a couple of nice smut scenes sprinkled in!

It's a bit early to actually rate it since there are only seven chapters released yet and I don't have complete understanding of it yet, but that doesn't mean it's not good. I've rated it anyway.

It's really a short story and I have yet to come across anything excessively cute or funny as of chapter seven. Till now, the story tells us about how the main characters became a couple. I'm not going to lie, it's a bit angsty but not too much. Just enough for you to feel a... more>> bit apprehensive. I consider that to be a good quality. There is their routine after they started dating and it can be considered nice and cute. I'm waiting for the comedy and cuteness to show (based on the tags). Don't let this stop you because I believe it to be a ride worth the effort and wait. I don't like angst when it's too much and this story seems to have just enough of it.

The description itself says "dog blog blood, a substitute, and a white moonlight". You bet it has them all. The shou is the substitute of the gong's white moonlight aka first love. Can't wait for it to proceed. Maybe it's like some sourness at the beginning and then sweetness? I'll wait for it! Again, it's worth the read!

Also, the cover itself is hilarious; a hairy leg wiggling. Wow. <<less

Loved this story.

Sweet and fluffy with a ton of cliches. I laughed when the ML "walked out" from the dark alley of his "white moonlight". The description gave me the shudders. Lol

A very cute shou and a spoiled gong. Loved the ML's mother.

The novel is full of fluff. No angst. There are 2 main characters - Broken-leg Gong & Shou-wife. And, 2 side characters - White Moonlight & Doctor. The full names of the two MCs is only mentioned at the end. It's not so dog-blood as written in summary.

In my reasoning, I suspect that the real white Moonlight should be Shou-wife as Broken-leg Gong was only attracted to White Moinlight due to his face. Ah.... but this type of pit author never filled...

It's a good short read. There are two instances... more>> of copulation. Overall, the storyline is smooth and fluffy. Worth a read!! <<less

Definitely not misunderstanding at first since the Gong is in love with someone else,

... more>>

he kissed the shou and said his white moonlights name as he did


but then turned to misunderstanding because the Gong is not truthful and kept on lying.


they were in a relationship this time. His white moonlight visited the Gong, they were happy and holding eachothers hands, the shou saw and left, later he asked if anyone visited, which the Gong lied (this caused the misunderstanding since apparently the Gong had move on and like his shou)

This lie happened again, when he lied about how he got Injured and who he was eating out with


Also I wished that the shou did something unexpected but he was so in love with the Gong. He couldn't think of loving anyone else 🙃 <<less

The dogblood part is mostly on the first half and then you realize it’s the old miscommunication trope and the characters get even more lovey dovey. There is also a hidden black bellied in the story but you only notice it in the end.

Ah! I feel so happy after reading this short, sweet and wholesome novel. It's so cute and fluffy! ? The MC & ML are both very good. Even though the summary mentions a white moonlight (unrequited love), there's no actual love triangle here, just a little misunderstanding. The protagonists are very sincere toward each other. There's even a side pairing, which seemed quite interesting. To be honest though, before reading the gong's perspective, I did want him to suffer from a little heartache. The ML's not bad at all,... more>> I was just expecting him to be like other MLs who stay obsessed with their unrequited loves? But he wasn't. Overall: a VERY GOOD READ! <<less

Went in not knowing much other than "A short story of misunderstanding, angst and unrequited love.".

Another simple, short, and brainless read. Contains the elements mentioned but just very light angst. Suitable for those who want a short fluffy brainless read. Nothing special about this story.

NU short story summary is very misleading but it turned out to be a nice read. Definitely not as heavy as the summary of 'A short story of misunderstanding, angst and unrequited love' implies. It's more of a fluffy story with light angst and minor misunderstandings that are resolved early on. ' (Light) angst' only lasts around 15 or so chapters. The main couple is adorable and every interaction is so cute. The ML is 'shameless' but loves his shou very much, it's cute how he acts around him and... more>> his jealousy is aww-worthy - no need to worry about possessive/toxic elements here. Everyone has a happy ending here which is really nice. <<less

Cute and funny. It's fluff, fluff and fluff shove in your face. The dog-blood drama mentioned in the synopsis was not really heavy. Although it was short I still find it satisfying.


Shou-Wife is such a cute cinnamon roll UwU and the little doctor *internal screaming* so cute.


Also, I find the author's naming style so relatable lol. I too, do that when I'm too lazy to think about complicated names for characters.

Oh, these two are such darlings. This one starts off in the present and flashbacks show the history of their romance as well as their heartaches. For a short story, it's fairly emotional and involved.

The shou is a total sweetheart and the gong is funny, albeit somewhat childish.

... more>>

My god, the tiff he got in with the love rival/doctor was hilariously petty. When they got engaged, he took a picture of their rings and drew a useless red circle around it, hahaha!


I really have to applaud the author's terrible amazing naming sense.


The shou's name is literally man wife (Ren Qi) and the gong's name is broken leg (Duan Tewei)......

5 stars, directly put in favourite books list.

I read it while it was being translated and everytime a new update popped up I was super happy.

It's such a good short story that has everything: a bit of unrequited love (then becoming super requited!) a bit of angst, a bit of family problems (broken leg gong really shined there good job man!!!), a lot of jealousy from both parts, a LOT of fluff and love and good feelings. And the doctor and little doctor as the cherry on top!

Pleasant read!

Premise: MC has been in love with ML since college. They are not good friends, but ML was the male god that MC admired from far. After college MC were collegues with ML for short period. It takes some time before ML is ready to accept MC.

... more>> We follow their story after they are already together and there are flashbacks how they got together.

It was a light read, no angst imo. Very short chapters. MC is a sweetie, very kind and diligent. The best wife type. ML is a respectful, smart, but jealous and somewhat petty gong. <<less

Really more like 3.5, it's a bite sized junk food kind of a stoy. Cute with some substance, but not much.

I'm glad the author didn't drag this out, 21 chapters for the main story was just the right length. I didn't read the doctors side story in the extras, ... more>>

wasn't into the doctor that came out of nowhere with his random love of the MC.


The names threw me off at first (Shou Wife and Broken Leg Gong 🤣), but were cute when I got used to them.

MC was a little weak for my taste but not bad for a short story. ML was a normal ML. I liked that they were both already out to their families. I was confused with the MC's younger brother, he was good then bad all at the same time.

Translation was great, might read again in a few years, if I come across it again. Enjoyable quick read for what it is. <<less

Very short and sweet. The main CP's story was a pit emotional and also sad for the MC's part. Like one of the commenters on the posts, I'm glad that it was a short story because if its too long, there will be so much pain and angst in the story.

Cute story. The intro summarizes the bulk of it. The misunderstanding between a couple in love.

The shou thinks the gong is still in love with his white moonlight. Although the gong was in love with the WM at the beginning of their relationship, he wasn't scummy. The gong had warned the shou about his feelings for WM but the shou still asked the gong to go out with him. The gong isn't at fault and he did eventually love and cherish the shou.

So the other misunderstanding was...

... more>>

The gong gives his salary to the shou to manage. So when he wanted to surprise the shou with an engagement ring, the gong had no money to buy one. So he borrowed money from the WM and asked him to bring back the ring from overseas. The gong got into the accident and broke his leg when he was meeting up with the WM to pick up the ring.
