    if you guys wanted to tear away from action/adventure/thriller novels like SS, LCF etc, then this novel is a perfect fit for you! It quite similar with Debut or Die, so you guys undoubtedly will feel refreshed reading this story. I just stumbled this masterpiece yesterday evening and guess what? by now, i have finished all chapter up until 440. welp- 438 to be exact as the last two chapter is duplicate. Anyways, you guys need to give this story a go and i guaranteed that you will not be disappointed. (oh, this author mentioned lots of kpop idols group like svt, g-idle etc, he/she just change the name a lil bit)

    The novel is surprisingly emotional. there are a few moments that made me tear up more than i expected. At the same time it's a bit heartwarming? I'm not sure. But still, I've enjoyed every bit of it.If anyone knows any novels similar to this or any other recommendations please let me know

    I would not say this is my cup of tea. I find myself reading SS stuff like that more, but if you're not sure about the whole Idol thing and are looking for something way less serious, give it a try. I've found this novel to be funny, and emotion inducing (gotta love getting suprise punched the feels), and genuinely recommend it as someone who didn't feel this to be something I would ever read. I was very pleasantly suprised to say the least.

    I like the novel, its fun and easy-going, i recommend not asking yourself "WHY DID HE DO THAT??? HE'S A GANGSTWR, JUST BEAT THEM UP?????" because novels like this are meant to be read to chill, not to stress yourself out. Just shut your brain and enjoy it😸

    Warning: Long and personal rant ahead. Ps: I've only read till ch70+ but I just couldn't continue personally. I even lost my mood to read idol related novels tbh. It's that bad to me. Anyway, like I said its MY personal opinion and some comments I'd like future readers who plan to read this. First of all, A LOT of unnecessary drama. The author be creating nonsense drama and problem for MC left right for no apparent reason. And side characters are getting blacken for no apparent reason to add more drama and problem for Mc. Second, A LOT of problematic side characters. Even if there are problematic people, it doesn't always have to be the Mc has to be the target right? Third, no personal development. Okay this may be too soon to say, but from what I can see, the author just made the Mc improve by using the system. Not much is shown on how he tries his own best to improve himself. Sure he practice but it's pretty obvious he relies heavily on the system.

      yeah honestly it feels like one of those novels where the plot might get dragged out, but its a good novel nonetheless when u wanna pass the time. ik u lost ur mood to read idol related novels but if u havent read debut or die or the trashy pd had to survive as an idol u should cus it delves alot into character development n doesnt hav unnecessary plot points😆

    at ch. 280, im d*mn frustrated. im so mad that the author didn't even give us a rest, constantly adding loathsome people when we only just gotten rid of Lin Zhi, that drug-distributor-slash-murderer guy!!! (AND IT'S ONLY TEMPORARY!!) the author just had to SLAM US with irritation, and annoyance by bringing in a j*cksh*t of a MANAGER!!!!! really?! i sacrificed my sleep for this?! it's ridiculous! at this point, shouldn't the manager be the most reliable one???!!!!!!

    • zenkiii 5

      I actually sacrificed my sleep too just to find out what will happens to that k*nky manager 😆
