    Hello, I am not big fan of chinese stories but I am trying get into it but I have big problem with characters always.
    FL is always naive and stupid and ML is bossy jerk CEO and everybody who is not FL's friend is always bad person so it's really hard to like any supporting characters.
    Is this standart for chinese novels or I just read wrong stories?
    If not can u recommend something with likeable characters and NOT dumb FL?
    Thank u.

    1) Thousand Miles of Bright Moonlight
    I can't stop gushing about this. I've read a lot of chinese historical drama with a female mc, and this is one of the few that stood out. The MC is forced to play a delicate balancing game of politics, and the stakes are real. She can't have everything, she knows it, and she needs to secure the best possible solution that she could trade from her meager assets—even if it means for her to grit her teeth and bleed herself. As of now, there is this pervasive sense of danger that always forces the MC to think on her feet.

    2) Liu in the Imperial Harem
    A young girl was forced to "kill" her love to survive in the imperial harem. This is not a light-hearted, face-slapping type of novel, but a rather poignant recollection. It's pretty bleak, and it focus on the relationship between the concubines. At the end of the day, the FMC still can't have everything. But she trade one thing for another, and it might just be the best possible outcome for her—and she's hella strong for making that choice.
    This one is a short read, already finished with 25-ish chapters.

    Don't fall in love with the boss
    Perfect fl, she's not weak willed cry baby but she's also not super op, realistic relatable fl
    You should try historical novels then, they usually have revenge theme with mature female leads
    I'll recommend
    Light hearted: Chongfei Manuel, greetings ninth uncle, tyrannical Wang's beloved wife, I became the step mother of my ex husband
    Intense: The Princess Wei Yang, rebirth of the Ill fated consort, malicious empress

    Small and Soft Girl A and Overbearing President Man O
    female alpha mc x male omega ml
    tho most of the time the mc is cute and sweet she can be really aggressive and possessive showing her alpha instinct especially while marking and stuff. and she is hella strong. the ml is very cute trying to be domineering but ends up being called cute.

    also if you are familiar with abo/omegaverse then you know but in case you dont know, female alphas have the male organ so the fl is the top. if you dont like this then its not for you.

    Full Marks Hidden Marriage: Pick Up a Son, Get a Free Husband _fl is smart, knows martial arts and doesn't blush in front of ml while the ml is a total gentlemen. This is the first Chinese novel I have read and only novel where I didn't find the ml as scum. He doesn't even uses his power do a background check on fl, saying that he wants to know about her through her.
    When I read this novel I didn't feel that much about the ml but after reading few Chinese CEO novels I came to know what a rare ml he was. Not Like those ml in Every novel I have read, they doesn't feel anything wrong doing a background check on fl as if it is quite normal.
    Perfect secret love: the bad new wife is a little sweet__ the fl is strong and doesn't depend on ml at all. She is super powerful and shameless while dealing with her enemies. It is fast paced so you will not get bored.

    Oh my god I totally relate! The title alone is annoying. I've always tried to avoid them but I decided to read one cause somebody gave some super good reviews about the FL. But! If FL is rich, ML is da richest! If FL is bitch, ML is da bitchiest! If FL is smart, ML is smarter! If FL is schemer, ML is a BLaCk-BeLLy! If FL is active, ML is PrOTeCtiVe! Istg thay make me scream in anger and cringe. I'm not undermining the FL's good points. But with the author making ML so overwhelming, the FL always looks weak. I've read other novels where ML is actually kinda perfect but the FL still looks super strong with her flaws. The hidden marriage novels are just really written in a bad way with extra shitty perfect MLs.
