    The one angst novel that I recommend everywhere - The Husky and His White Cat Shizun.
    Don't be fooled by the name, I know I did and like an idiot went to read without seeing the tags but I regret nothing because the world building and the plot of the novel was AMAZING.
    This has angst. knives. anger - I hated the main character till almost the end of the book. Its dark and has sad past. It fits all your criterias.

    Not really my favorite but some I recently read, maybe there'll be plenty others to rec the more popular ones
    Lian Qun Fang - some mentioned sad past and it starts with MC being held captive so of course angst and dark
    The Slag Gong wants to Kill me - dark, about a man who was cheated by his husband
    Free Ren Yigu - it might not be the type that makes everyone sad? MC is dealing with OCD and mental health problems

    One of the best dark/angsty novel is
    "Little Mushroom"- It is an apocalypse setting. The novel description will make you think that it is fluffy story, yes it is cute and funny sometimes, but it is definitely dark. What I love is the uniqueness of the ML, he's not like the other MLs whose head over heels on the MC to the point of obssession. He's rational and even cold but that is because he's shouldering a great responsibility for the survival of humanity.

    Highly recommended..

    I second "Flying Gulls Never Land" and "Little Mushroom", these are absolutely best.
    I wish I could erase my memory just to read LM again, and FGNL just gave me dem FEELS. They make you hurt, but in a good, masochistic way.

    Could you, please, tell a bit more about this untranslated novel? Maybe a slight spoiler, if you are up to it? I can read in chinese, but very slowly and with some effort, so I need something to motivate me first. :sushi_chubby:
