transmigration without annoying systems. some reviews berate the mc for being dumb, but i love him, it suits him well. mc is not dumb, he is a very carefree and pretty playful guy at heart, but after character development, he becomes very serious and focused on his work. ml is so incredibly lovable. despite being involved with politics later on, the romance does NOT take a backseat. this novel made me laugh so hard at times and i did have a pretty long sobbing moment too. like many dramas, they have a pretty peaceful domestic arc, look forward to that.... more>>
