    So, the MLs in most BL stories are most times bigger and stronger than the MC, often with cold temperament and bossy or overbearing style.
    Wondering if there are any good novels where the ML either has an unconventional look (maybe girly or just not handsome) and/or an unconventional style/character (maybe easily flustered or happy-go-lucky or something).
    Anything that isn't the "norm"!
    for example, the ML in Kaleidoscope of Death loves to crossdress, or the ML in My Husband is Suffering from a Terminal Illness is easily flustered and tsundere.

    What about Later, He Became a Royal Healer? ML is lazy and closer to beautiful than handsome. MC is actually the colder one and boxes regularly. Honestly I think MC would win in a fight 10/10 times lol

    Later I became a royal healer - ML is like 2m, but can act spoiled and will go "ying ying (aka fake cry noises) " to the MC when feel aggrieved lol. Also poisoned tongued.

    The thing is, what kind of ML that you're asking here?
    Do you ask for ML as the gong ML? Or the shou ML?
    Also we agree that ML is the lover of MC? Not the MC, right?
    I mean, do you choose the gong or the ML?
    Because if your ML is gong, then your explanation there is the typical gong ML. So you might want to read novel with gong as the MC though.
    But if your ML is shou, this is very rare, and I cuodnt think of title rn, but I can suggest to read the Strongest God. Actually this title can be categorized into the MC gong too.

    I asked for an unconventional ML. Shou ML is in my opinion also very unconventional, since I rarely find a novel with MC gong and ML shou haha. I have read all of the shou ML novels on NU though, so I thought looking for unconventional MLs altogether would be a good starting point for finding new novels to read haha

    After Transmigrating I Made The Antagonist Cry ( ML is shou, cold faced but he cries easily)

    Vanguard of Eternal Life (if you haven't read it yet)

    After I got married, those who betrayed me were reborn (ML is really interesting character)

    The Horror Movie Male Lead’s Winter

    Live Broadcasting Raising Dragons in the Interstellar

    Faking straight (ML is shou, harem novel protagonist, MC turns him gay lil by lil)

    My favourite manly husband - mpreg ( ML is shou and pretty manly, also a ger(?). The kind of ML that melts your heart) ❤️

    I heard that I am poor

    Transmigrated into the Film Emperor’s Death-Seeking Fiancé
    The ML is still in a 'higher position' but can never win in a war of words again't the MC which I find super refreshing

    I Ran Away after that Rich Old Man was Pregnant with My Child
    Lighthearted, ML is the shou even though he's the overbearing CEO type but it's really funny seeing him act like newlywed wife with the MC

    The Ugly Prince
    says it in the title, he has a huge scar on his face and everyone, probs even the MC deep down, thinks he's ugly

    To Rule in a Turbulent World
    ML is a slave the MC bought/saved. Love the chilled out interactions between them. ML would literally do anything the MC tells him to

    Hope these help, Happy reading!

    I always get this title messed up.. it’s like white lotus in the apocalypse... or something. It’s where the Mc is a gong that transmigrates into a rival cannon fodder shou then spends the book trying to change his look and seduce the protagonist shou.

    the ML is pretty and op and continues to get more so throughout the book.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :blobhyperthink: the one that came to mind and made me spit out my water is probably Superstar Aspirations HAHAH ML is the typical cold iceberg on the outside but he has a stan weibo trumpet for MC and he gushes so hard and adorably that I applaud his rainbow fart skills :ROFLMAO:
    :blob_plusone:
    Reborn As The Villain President’s Lover - ML is tsun to the bone and often shoots himself in the foot with his own words, comedy gold
    I Became A Big Star After I Quit The Entertainment Industry - ML is quiet but actually MC's fanboy/fansite
    He Woke Up And Became The Actor’s Cat - ML is the out of reach film emperor but he secretly loves all cute animals BUT he seems to be a repellant qwq except MC of course!
    Home of the Zerg - ML (shou) is bigger than MC as per the Zerg species, holds a military job while MC is a lecturer of sorts
    Great At Acting, Now I’m Reborn - ML is quite sweet to MC if i remember correctly, none of that overbearing iceberg setting
    Ang Ang - ML (gong, S) is a pretty boy rich kid/boss while MC (shou, M) is a big muscly bodyguard, (r-18 bdsm though so might not be your cup of tea, but thought i'd toss it here for the adventurous)

    and to make things REALLY unconventional, The Story of Two Male Mosquitoes :ROFLMAO:
