An actual soap opera. The angsty tale of two souls doomed to eternal miscommunication because when it's BL that means it's two men and Men Don't Communicate.
A CEO gets isekai'd into the body of a villainous Emperor of a web novel he liked under the assumptions that Canon Is Always Right (and thus, the male lead must be heterosexual) and a good amount of the first season holds a somewhat comical tone. However, and there is little I can say without spoilers so I'm doing my best here, this is NOT a lighthearted manhua overall and is very dramatic. Very Soap Opera. Subplots in subplots in subplots- the content warning for suicide is there for a reason, there's violence and betrayal and Ancient Chinese Court Style Intrigue and really, you'll be glued to the screen wanting to know what happens next.
It's very well written. And addictive.
I'm still constantly yelling at the main ship for not using their words like adults though.
