  1. Just finished until episode 8. It is quite funny seeing how Zhi Yan and Zhao Yao fighting about which is scarier between Li Chen Lan and Qing Qin Xuan . By the way could someone help me understand just who is Sima Rong? I don't think I remember seeing him in earlier episode. I am curious since it seems he and Li Chen Lan has very close relationship.
  2. @arcchidus Thank you very much for the summary!!! I am trying very hard to restrain myself to not devour all the uploaded episodes in one go because I know I will be very frustrated for days waiting. But still, I can not help but take a peek here and there ...... And with the weekend is looming, well I perhaps will loss to temptation soon I really hope that we can get pass this Zhao Yao missunderstanding moment as soon as possible. Seeing how devoted Mo Qing is and how Zhao Yao just think the worst of him just ..... very sad. I believe Mo Qing is already realizing that she is Zhao Yao. No master will spoil his student like Mo Qing does here. Seeing time and time again Zhao Yao trying to kill him while he is all smile just bad for my heart. Hopefully the lovey dovey later on will be able to make up all this bad feeling.
  3. Good to hear that this drama is a hit in China. We can hope that it will get subbed soon then. Finished watching episode 1-4; like what I've seen so far. The male lead is so cute. I am really looking forward to their lovey dovey in the future. Mo Qing has liked Zhao Yao since they were young however their situation back then would not let Zhao Yao to reciprocate that feeling. Not to mention that their position were too different, it would be difficult for a woman like Zhao Yao to fall to Mo Qing. She fell for Luo Ming Xuan instead. Now when Mo Qing finally get his "upgrade", I am curious how Zhao Yao will finally fall for him.
  4. Hi, everyone! It has been months since my last activity in soompi. Lots of job in real life, no drama really interested me, top it with I am getting in touch again my computer gaming The trailer looks interesting, decided that I should check this one. Anyone here familiar with the novel? I watch video uploaded here by @hathanhthanh09 ... Please tell me this is not a sad ending story. The male lead is so cute and this type of personality is very into my taste for male lead. I haven't checked any of the episodes yet since I am still on my leave for lunar new year and internet here in my house in my hometown is not suitable for this kind of heavy streaming. Hopefully I can contribute to the discussion here by next week.
  5. @willyliaw I am honored that you made an account to comment to my post . Even until now I am still stuck at episode 32. Watching the future episodes trailer and reading people post here regarding the ending just suck up all my enthusiasm. Add my increase in work load these past two months, I end up losing any will to continue (for now at least). Honestly, this is my first time watching xianxia novel (the ones that focusing on cultivation with at least few hundreds chapters) adaption from the novel that I read. So perhaps I was at fault for setting my expectation too high. Until today I still rage for how the drama butchered the "sacredness" of alchemy profession and Xian Yan - Xun Er romance.
  6. @bastion Actually I am still stuck at episode 32 and just watching trailer for further episodes. I kind of avoiding this thread because I am afraid I will affect all of you with my negative aura ..... I am very disappointed with this drama adaptation. Everything feels cheapened. Xun Er is weak and needs this skill endowment from dunno who to become powerful. And what is this about dragon? Are they trying to incorporating Zi Yan character to Xun Er? And then Xiao Yan is still a boy who always run to Yao Lao for help and advice. Where is the powerful and mature Xiao Yan that can protect his teacher? From the latest trailer I watched, Xiao Yan gets a mark that is said to be Dou Di mark? Is my hearing and understanding correct? If this is true, then they cheapened the way of Xiao Yan get to be a Dou Di, too ..... Well, they can hold the Soul Hall arc in the season 2. Perhaps end the season 1 with Xiao Yan vs Yan Ran fight. I don't think that they will have enough time for Soul Hall arc at this point of time. Season 2 can start with central plain. There are lots of story in central plain although I suspect we will get lots of drama original arc. Also, in the drama, they already connected Soul Hall with Hun clan. This needs more elaboration, so I believe we will still get season 2. Even though by some miracle season 1 can end with Hun Mie Sheng defeat, the drama still needs to flesh out Hun clan.
  7. @BreezeC Very good video! Thank you for sharing! Please make more. How about incorporating the devastating ending this time? By the way, your video makes me realize how good ZYL in white. Black is kind of male color. All male wear black looks good to me. But white is kind of yes/no. There is something in white that makes ZYL much more appealing in my eyes
  8. I heard that Wu Xie and Zhang Qilin has brotherly relationship bordering BL in the later part of the series (I take that it is that very part ZYL will act on in this adaptation?!). Therefore, I hope that we will get an actor for Zhang Qilin that can have good chemistry with ZYL like the one we get with Bai Yu in Guardian.

    Hi! Please check on "dramamu". I found all three dramas there. Actually it is easier to find chinese drama with indo sub than with eng sub these days, especially for those unpopular drama (drama without idol). I am very surprised at this. A couple of dramas like Xuan Yuan Sword - Han Cloud and The Legend of Jade Sword, I cannot find those in eng sub at all. But then suddenly I found those in indo sub .... @node Woah! You are NodeZero from YT? I am a fan of your videos .

    @katthy Hahahahahaha! Of course I know you are from Italy. I just want to let those who come from Indonesia know that they can enjoy those three dramas in our language (luckily) so that they don' t need to be frustrated with the lack of eng sub. Sorry, seems my wording was indeed rather ambiguous regarding whom I subjected my sentences for I feel pretty bad for you since I know that it will be very hard for European countries to have chinese dramas subbed to their language (or not?). I can understand your frustration perfectly since I often got frustrated searching for sub for my favorite Chinese drama and found nothing. Those indo subs actually come as surprise for me since I never realize that my country is that into Chinese drama (turn out I am out of date with my country preference). As far as I know, country that has abundant of subs for Chinese dramas is Vietnam. Chinese dramas are always have problem in subbing unlike Korean dramas. I think the language is more difficult to translate?! Not to mention the monstrous number of episodes. Anyway, ever since ZYL rise to popularity, I always wish that somebody will take the project of subbing old dramas of ZYL to english, the good ones especially that showcased his acting skill.

    @katthy Unfortunately for us, it is very hard to find old dramas of Zhu Yi Long in eng sub. I am pretty lucky because my country people seem to be more and more interested in chinese dramas these days, so there are quite a number of dramas that do not have eng sub, get translated to my language. Sadly, my luck stop at Love for Three Lifetimes. So for you that come from Indonesia, be happy that you can enjoy Border Town Prodigal, As Flower Fade and Fly Across the Sky, and Royal Sister Return fully subbed in Indonesian language. I really hope that someone will continue the subbing for Border Town Prodigal. Even though this is not a good drama in term of storyline, this drama in my opinion really highlighted ZYL acting skill. My life is never the same after watching this drama. ZYL was re-defined what was called tragic character here. His inner pain, sadness and depression really wrenched my heart. Even when he smiled, you could still feel his inner pain. It was so perfect that it changed my way to evaluate an actor/actress in acting sad scene. I have read the novel too, and I say ZYL captured Fu Hong Xue nuances in the novel perfectly. This drama is the very culprit that made me unable to fully enjoy Ashes of Love. Therefore I wish that all ZYL fans can watch this drama. It is a great experience that can make you admire him even more. Xin Xiao Shi Yi Lang ..... ZYL was the only one that made me grit my teeth and continued on watching until the end. I hated the story, and the female lead frustrated me to no end.

    @BreezeC What is this mv compilation of ZYL characters death that you are talking? I am planning to watch Love for Three Lifetimes, but sadly I cannot find sub. ..... Therefore I am on my way to try watching The Legend of Miyue. Do you have other recommendation? By the way regarding The Lost Tomb, since there is a "reboot" tagging in the title, are we sure that the adaption ZYL acts on is not the first arc? Because I have tried watching Tomb Raider movie and The Lost Tomb season 1. Sadly, I don't like the Wu Xie character there. Too naive for my taste, thus I hope that ZYL will play a matured Wu Xie instead.

    Welcome to @softzyl and @minshinlover!!! Hope you enjoy your stay in this thread @katthy As Flower Fade and Fly Across the Sky is one of ZYL drama that end in happy ending with him getting the girl. After watching the painful and depressing thing that was Border Town Prodigal, As Flower Fade was like oasis at that point of time. I really like his character there. I hope you have fun watching. @siobhanne If you didn't ask, I would never realized that there is almost no chinese drama that I know that has good antagonist. Good antagonist here means a character that you can sympathize and even root for. Chinese drama has tendency to glorify the protagonist while neglecting the antagonist. This is not only happen in drama, but in novel too. Well, one drama that perhaps has acceptable antagonist is Ashes of Love. Run Yu character there sure has justified reason why he acts like he does (even though it is still wrong thing to do). But, his character still cannot make me root for him, unfortunately (I know lots of people there will think otherwise though). It is Korean Dramas where I find has good antagonist whom can make me root for them more than the protagonist. There are 2 of them that I can remember for now: Mishil and Bidam from Queen Seon Duk, Gwi from Scholar who Walks the Night. Especially Mishil character; I think she is more qualified to become the Female King than the main character.

    @BreezeC Hi! Well, Bi Jun mother was more or less has it coming when she just insulted Lian Cheng Bi and his father. I understood that it was her maternal thing speaking but she must also understand her daughter was at fault. Based on my experience reading Border Town Prodigal and its sequel novels, I can see that the writing style of Gu Long is not my cup of tea at all. If ZYL was not in Xin Xiao Shi Yi Lang, I would never watch this drama. Border Town Prodigal was more bearable since the drama change things a bit with making Fu Hong Xue main focus instead of Ye Kai. I should commend ZYL here for his acting. Lian Cheng Bi is a pitiful character, just as Fu Hong Xue (even though Fu Hong Xue is bordering tragic .....) but the nuances that I got from those two characters were different. They are both sad characters, but I think ZYL was able to level their sad intensity differently. Yes, I am agree with you that based on ZYL personality that we have seen up to now, he will have no qualm to take on antagonist role as long as it can provide challenge to him. It is often that antagonist role and anti-hero are more complex than the protagonist one. I hope with his increasing popularity, more Production house and Director will recognize his talent and give him a complex role.
