    Novels or Mangas about going back in time, transmigration/rebirth/reincarnation is okay as long as he uses his memories from the past to create a better future. MALE MAIN Character please. No xianxia, wuxia, cultivation, martial arts or magic.
    Going back in time. Not too much but some years somewhere around 1990 to the present day. I like modern and please no cultivation, wuxia or martial arts. It's a big NO. It can be about business, stocks, investments, music, movies, celebrity, books etc. Yaoi is okay but NO Yuri. Modern day rebirth stories please please please...

    The scope of your search is pretty hard to find.

    The detail is any rebirth/reincarnation or transmigration story of a male mc back to the past. It can be yaoi or straight. Can be about either entertainment industry or about business. As long as about the present or modern day like we live in today. Thank you.

    Rebirth of a Supermodel? King of Classical Music?

    Oh wait, technically they didn't go back in time but they did make use of their skill set. I guess you'll like it if you haven't read this yet?

    And yeah, I agree with this, I also made a thread for this but I didn't really get anything, I guess translators didn't really like to translate novels about economic growth that much? Well, they are pretty hard to understand :blobwoah:

    Losing Money to be a Tycoon

    There's a system, but all it does is provide money for the business and restrict the MC's actions. Like, he is not allowed to tell people about the system, that he's from the future, or run an unethical business (Simplified Explanation).

    Why is no one mentioning God of Cooking and God of Music. They're pretty high-rated.
    I second Bokutachi no Remake and Genius at Performing Arts.
    Awakening, Extroardinary Genius, Rebirth: How a Loser Became a Prince Charming, and Very Pure and Ambigous are novels where if you liked one, you'll like the rest.
