I feel bad for the guys left behind. WHY CAN'T THE AUTHOR LET THEM BE HAPPY TOO? FIND THEIR OWN HAPPINESS.

Great series - way better than most Manhua

I had my apprehensions going into this series because most Manhua I've tried before this was bad but this turned out to be a a very good read that I am enjoying immensely. The dynamic between the male lead and female lead is very fun, with a lot of smart writing in their back-and-forth exchanges and of course the art is good too. Most importantly, unlike a lot of Manhua the plot always seems to be progressing and it doesn't get bogged down with filler. This turned out to be one of the most well-rounded and well-thought-out romance series I've read in quite a while and I'm glad I didn't avoid it.

By the way, the comment below mine, from "ohkimch", is filled with a lot of false information - I don't think they understood the plot very well.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The King of Hell and LianLian are separate characters. LianLian, who is the main male lead, is a reincarnation of the King of Hell but they are separate characters and as of the current chapter LianLian and the King of Hell are both alive at the same time. Actually, the two of them are even enemies. ohkimch got confused with recent plot developments I guess - the plot can be quite intricate, but so far it makes sense to me.

Also, it is simply untrue that the female character is a damsel in distress. She is a very strong character for the whole series - yes, sometimes she is saved by the male lead, but sometimes she is the one to save him instead. They help each other out when it is most needed - like in all good relationships.

I should’ve known better

It’s alright, if you can ignore the usual - the underage heroine, the misogynistic gender dynamics, and the questionable violence in the name of love.

The fluff is very, very cute, though.

One of the parts aside from (or in addition to) the usual objectionable manga/manhua content was the disappointment of having been duped into believing the gender dynamics were not quite as terrible as the norm.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Despite the male lead’s considerable status, wealth, and power, he’s first introduced right after being stripped of these privileges. His social status, physical prowess, and riches meant nothing right after he lands in another time.

Even when they’re both in his time, we’re under the impression that at least in their past life, they were of relatively equal status. She was a spirit of some sort, and he was more specifically a fox spirit.

The point is, for once, I thought I’d finally, finally found a story where the male was not significantly stronger/smarter/richer/wealthier/more attractive/more powerful than the female lead.

Hurrah, I thought. Finally a Chinese manhua where the strong female lead isn’t eclipsed and reduced into a lucky Damsel by the male lead’s brilliance.

But then it turns out the fox spirit was the flipping King of Hell before he was a fox spirit. Surprise, surprise.


More the fool I for ever thinking a manhua would not tip the gender power dynamic in favor of the male.

The art is pretty and clean, though, the coloring is nice, and the characters are relatively likable. And, again, the fluff is tooth achingly sweet.

Would recommend to friends who don’t mind the hackneyed shoujo sexism and gender roles.

EDIT: There is r*pe around chapter 117-119ish. Man is drugged w/aphrodisiacs, which ofc excuses his actions. Ugh.

I like all the characters to the fullest, and don't worry, there is nothing of phedofilia (a concern that I had when I begun to read). Everybody is so smart and assertive. You can see that there is a well constructed plot. Ilike the two leads, something reaaaally rare. They're both smart, and SO CUTEEE. Ah, and there is a yandere guy, to the interesteds ;D.
