    : in Bogum's hands

    He sang "I Like You" by Day6 and "Late Night's Letter" by IU?! Holy monkeys, I need a video of that! And he played the piano, too. I have been deprived of witnessing that awesomeness! At last! *evil laugh* I liked when he cried. (Sounds terrible, I know.) But it was so genuine and a sort of reassurance that he found something/someone really touching. It was awesome. Bogum, don't stop. :))
  2. "Everyone should get to do what they truly wish. Then it won't be the waste of time the gods have given us." ~ Xiao Pingjing So, on my day off I sat down to "actively rest", i.e. to draw.
  3. Yup, and it's also good for him to remove himself from any kind of political struggle that could've ensued; any doubt, any attempts by others to create factions, etc. His reputation, his experience, his connection to the house of Changlin, his fighting skills, his brains, and everything else make him too powerful and a desirable target.
  4. I was watching it with my mom. (She kind of joined.) And you know that whenever she says something like "let's continue" or "how many episodes do we have left", she likes it. I wish there was something like that. I would love to buy. It doesn't even matter that I don't speak the language. I'd still add it to my collection.
  5. I agree with you 100%. I thought it was the right choice and a very wise move on his part. Frankly, I can't see him making any other choice. It even goes along with what Changlin was/is all about. Made complete sense to me. And same here, I, too, cared about all of them. If someone was to play the opening theme for me right now, I would be swinging from side to side with my hands up in the air.
  6. As long as I like the script, I'll be happy with it I guess all we can do is wait.
  7. Perhaps 'cause the focus is more on action scenes than the narrative, or maybe the narrative isn't very compelling? I like that the heroine's got spunk, though, and I do like the prince.
  8. That feeling when you're late to all the discussions, and people have already left...
  9. Congratulations to one of my favorite dramas! Nothing comes close to you at the moment. It's almost a daily necessity for me to talk about it. Goodness gracious! I, too, want those postcards! And a figurine of Pingjing or something. And even more love for this drama. @liddi Alright, I will. That's too bad there's nothing like that... I'd buy it.
  10. Well, people don't always like to read long posts. That list of "things lacking" is pretty darn accurate. haha Definitely some of the reasons why I love it so much. Do you know if there are any photobooks to buy or something like that?
  11. Is this a bad company? Looking forward to it! Hoping for a good script. I'm having Haoran withdrawals.
  12. Everything about Bin Bin's character is just... I'm trying to find at least something that I could like...
  13. It's too bad I wasn't here for the discussion at the right time, although I, too, was watching. Have already written about it elsewhere, so gonna try to make this short. Loved it. Nothing else seems to be right after it, which usually happens when I find "my" drama. From its cinematography, costumes, and script to everyone's performances, it was such an enjoyable experience! It felt like watching a slice of life. It felt real. In "Midnight in Paris", Hemingway's character says, "No subject is terrible if the story is true, if the prose is clean and honest, and if it affirms courage and grace under pressure." Without the nitpicking, which is something some people might have a strong desire to do, that's how watching this drama felt to me. It's honest. The story itself, the ideas it presents for a discussion, the emotional baggage, - all of it is so true, so honest to me. 50 episodes in a blink of an eye. I would come home from work, looking forward to watching another two or three. As someone whose preferences gravitate towards the "romantic relationship" dramas, I appreciated the fact that this one was different; that it was about love's different forms. To me, none of the characters were cartoonish, and that specifically pertains to the baddies. I can talk for hours on end about every character and situation. I can praise the soundtrack. I can discuss the couples and how their love/the portrayal of it was just right for me. I can express my love for the brotherly bond as well as for the father-son bond. All of that might take pages and pages, so I'm going to hold off a bit. I was absolutely ecstatic about the non-brooding protagonist. That's something I wouldn't have expected from this kind of drama. At times grieving, yes. At times impatient to a certain degree, yes. (However, not going to list all his amazing qualities; that's for another post.) But not brooding. Not in this falsely philosophical idleness. Not a let-me-teach-you-how-to-live-your-life type as some drama characters are. Pingjing is real and relatable, and recognizable. The one who loves life so much! He's one of my favorite male characters now. (By the way, props to Haoran for bringing that something to the character, which made him alive. I tend to think it's Haoran's love for his craft, or his innate ability to breathe in life into whoever he is about to be. Or, maybe it's how much he believes in what he does.) Pingjing's journey was interesting and well-written, and wonderfully executed. There are basically three Pingjings in the drama, and the transition is seamless. That one scene, when Pingjing makes such a brave decision to go on with the plan, and the one afterwards are very... internal. I could see the thoughts and emotions bubbling underneath the surface. I could feel it, and I dare to say I knew exactly what he was feeling. Also, that's a great point about loyalty and what it truly means. (I saw there had been a discussion about his decision in the finale, and I'm wholeheartedly on his side. It was a wise and the only right move.) Anyhow, I promised to make this short... Loved it.
