    Breaking News! Exceedingly Popular Manhua Artist Tang Zhi’s Amazing Boyfriend is the Young Master He Xiu of Starlight General Merchandise!

    Internet User #1: Every time a new female star becomes popular, she wants my amazing Young Master He as her boyfriend/bankroller/Mr. Wang from next door.* You can’t change a person!!!!

    Internet User #2: No ^^, the main point is that now, they won’t even leave a manhua artist alone!

    Young Master He’s bad friend** also sent him a congratulatory message: Congrats for attaining the 10/10 Boyfriend Achievement! *casts flowers* *★,°*:.☆\( ̄▽ ̄)/$:*.°★*

    Young Master He replied: Excuse me, this time it’s real :)

    Obsessed with money + Misandry. Once, I had no delusions towards romance, but your voice made my entire world fall into the river of love.

    Reading Guideline:

    1. This novel is purely for pleasure; please do not take seriously.

    2. Light, sweet love, 1V1/Monogamy, HE/Happy Ending

    *term used jocularly to refer to a neighbor who is supposedly sleeping with one’s wife

    **friend who is a bad influence

    Even though it's currently being written by Chestnut, I reckon that it'll be completely finished in a dozen or so more chapters.
    I'm the translator for this novel, so I may be biased (coughs), but it's honestly an adorably sweet romance. The MC, Jian Yan/Tang Zhi, hates men, but she has a definite voice kink. So when she hears the male lead, He Xiu, and then the mysterious Nan Si, a singer, she begins questioning herself.
    It's not just a sweet romance; the humor laced throughout this novel is ridiculous. The amount of times that my editor, @Moonclipse, and I broke down laughing is insane. A good portion of the novel also occurs over QQ (chatting platform), so lighthearted teasing is abundant. A lot of references like Vocaloid and Chinese Pop Culture, so you end up learning a lot. I also found, through this, a song cover that I absolutely adore; I like this even more than the original...
    It's also part of the Truly Precious Shared Universe (9) written by Chestnut, which consists of

    I'm a fan of Chestnut. All of her stories are so fluffy and sweet I'm gonna die hahahaha. I wish I could read chinese tho, it's so hard to MTL it. I kind of MTL the sweet heart in honeyed desire and I'm almost done with tho I stopped xD

    SHHD~ One of the ones I had a blast translating. It was a toss-up of SHHD and MWFRL for me as well tbh... I would've loved translating both, but readers picked~
    And yea... Chestnut's novels are a killer for MTLers. A lot of allusions, idioms, slang, pop culture, etc. Sweet Heart in Honeyed Desire isn't that bad, but MTL doesn't fully bring out the delicacies featured within the novel (aka the food my editor and I kept drooling over as we worked on the chapters — it gave both of us a strong urge to bake. Luckily, I restrained myself because those several hours I could've spent baking were used for translating instead.)

    ... myuu ...
    Eventually ... probably ...
    As in ... after I finish AQ or MWFRL :3
    Then I'll see about picking up another one of those teasers I did (leaning so heavily onto SHHD) if it hasn't been picked up.
    Can't give myself another project to translate right now... I mean... I have...

    Nan Si: 「Can you divulge what this new project is about? 『cute』」

    Tang Zhi: 「I want to draw a female lead who sells clothes in a shopping mall.」

    Nan Si: 「(⊙o⊙) All kinds of department stores? Kind of like Starlight General Merchandise?」

    But I normally give you spoilers/teasers anyways? Myuu... does that mean I shouldn't post them in here? Alright... I checked Parth's thread, and he said that as long as I placed it under a spoiler, it was fine?

    Myuu~~~
    Chapter 9 is like a meteor shower.
    He Xiu looked at her before lightly raising the corners of his mouth. “That friend you introduced last time, that was the famous manhua artist Tang Zhi, right?”
