Hello readers! I recently started reading Black Bellied Dad after reading the review and discussions on bookshushengbar. I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but I love novels where the male lead are “black belly”. I’m not sure if I’ll pick up this novel to translate since I’m currently translating “Black Belly Boss, Don’t Run”
This novel only consists of 10 Chapter which is considered a short novel. To give readers a feel of the novel I’ll start off with translating the prologue. If you know how to read Chinese you can find the Chinese novel here 🙂
Brief Novel Introduction
She, Huang Shang Rong, is a demoness who runs her office with an iron fist.
He, Xu He Jun, is her miracle cure, no, personal assistant, who got the job because his ancestors have done a lot of good deeds and blessed him with a strong Yang aura.
Just by touching him or drinking his coffee is enough to chase away her blues and curb her bad temper. But why did he apply for long leave suddenly? Turns out that he has a baby on the sly, and the mother abandoned his baby at his door, causing an upheaval in his life and nipping his budding romance with his current girlfriend.
Ay, so poor thing. This young man was already dirt poor, how could he afford to take care of a baby?
As his boss, she decided to step in and help him manage his time, manage his finances, set up an infant care at the office, and even volunteered to be the baby’s God mother.
Looking at his second-hand furniture, she even helped to buy a Simmons and ended up testing the new mattress with him. When he brought her back to meet his parents, she got a shock to find that they were staying at Di Bao (a high-class residential zone). So he is actually a rich man pretending to be poor? Why did he deceive everyone?
