Synopsis

Li Yun grew up with a system that gave him useless gifts. He wanted a reward that could prove the existence of the system, but ended up with abstract gifts like culture. Without physical proof, he was stuck wondering whether his mind was truly sane, all the while dealing with the reality of life.

How will the "useless" system help Li Yun navigate medical school, hospital politics, criminal cases, treasure hunting, farming and cooking?

      Good efforts in medical details, plot, character dev, and schemes.

      But the Taoism System and its gifts are not mentioned as often. 

      Focus is on maintaining a balance between spirituality, science, psychology, applyibg it to modern life, and social relationships.

      Would have like to see more interactions from the spiritual sides like ghosts. Martial skills were... for survival, but feel weak in badass scenes moments.

      To be fair, MC would rather avoid getting into troubles cuz he's a doctor and somewhat "crazy" realist. But because of his personality, he always get pulled into political conflicts of some sorts.

      For now, the story does not contain 6/10 annoying tropes found in stories with MC + System & Special Power.

      Not very musclehead arrogant, not so machsotic beta, but comically curious character who is smart and relatable humane.

      MC's strengths lies not in his power, but his social networking and connections. His relationships with friends are sort of healthy normal except for some.

      This story is more equivalent to a series of events happening in chronological order. It honestly lacks a bit of contenuity, but it makes up for this in its intrigue. This story has a very well fleshed out system with a life like cast. It doesn't just feel like the regular novels where you have to turn your brain off  to enjoy it. This story really pulls you in and makes you think about the characters choices and his interactions with people.

      PS: Even though there is a lot of fantasy and mysticism, it surprisingly educational with the author doing research into the topics they introduce in to the story.

      read ahead on an other site, but this is a pretty solid story. The MC is a doctor and there are some medical procedural elements, though the MC high EQ skills are whats really on display. If you like stories like Medical Return give this a shot.

      I liked the Chinese hospital politics and spiritualism incorporated into this story but can't vouch for their validity. The low fantasy of it gives it an atmosphere that's rare to find in web serials.

      However pacing is a bit strange since the MC is pulled into story lines abruptly like being a doctor but also doing a police investigation completely separately.  We also haven't spent enough time with the side cast for them to leave any impression on me.

      Well I like this so far, don't know how it's going to end though.

      This story is a slice of life that’s interesting twist is kind of uninteresting and not very explored. The story itself is somewhat interesting but there are usually a bunch of disparate plot threads that barely seem connected and just raise eyebrows. The fact the MC doctor is both a doctor and a sometimes detective feels like the author wanted two different stories in one. The detective stuff isn’t flesh out enough to be interesting and, tbh, a lot of the story lacks an interesting depth to it. 

      There’s also a large lacking in build up and pay off. MC meets girl once who then runs away and we see for only the briefest of scenes? MC fell in love, apparently? He keeps trying to find her in off-hand comments here and there but there’s no real explanation for why. What’s even worse is when he does meet with her, it comes across as if it seems to want to be more but feels like just another disconnected scene that feels like it’s missing more to set it up for the proper payoff.

      That’s my big issue. It’s interesting for a while but there’s nothing to really sink your teeth into. No truly interesting interactions with interesting characters, just a bunch of scenes that seemingly are connected because of chronology and the MC.
