  1. All about Qi Heng and Minglan (2) Episode 5 - School Events:: Shadow Drawing (EP5:23:40) In this scene, Qi Heng recites his essay in the class, there are two things little sweet things here: 1)Whenever Qi Heng says “six,” he will purposely enunciate this word, because Minglan is the sixth miss of the family, and he hardly gets any chance to call her, so in his heart, being able to say six out loudly is something sweet to him. (Don’t worry, it won’t sound too awkward because the essay is about one state vs. other six states so it acceptable to stress “six") 2)Minglan traces his shadow when he is standing up reciting his paper. She uses her fingers first and then uses a writing brush drawing his profile on her desk. It is such a sweet puppy love moment in the story, he loves her with all his heart, and she has a crush on him too but hides it very well. Episode 5 - School Events:: Scholar Zhuang’s punishment (EP5:24:53) On the other side of the room, Minglan is bargaining with Scholar Zhuang -- she offers food to Scholar Zhuang and gets one day of extension for her extra assignment — copy “Slat and Iron theory,” a collection of 60 articles. This is a fascinating scene, Minglan is very sweet, and Qi Heng’s uses every excuse he can find just try to be in the same room with her for a bit longer. Episode 5 - School Events:: The invite, the gift and the offering(EP5:28:20) This is one of the crucial scenes in the early episodes. 1)Qi Heng “bumped into” Minglan after school. He talked about Polo match, Minglan said they've never been to a Polo match before. 2)Qi Heng is quite happy and said he will ask for an invitation letter and send it to the Sheng Family, and then he stopped talking and become tongue-tied for a short while, what he really wants to say is whether Minglan plays to go, but he couldn’t ask for it. 3)And then he recollected his self-confidence and started talking again about the prize of the Polo match. Minglan replies that none of the girls in the Sheng Family knows how to play Polo, and then try to stop the conversation by saying it is too late. 4)I guess this is something Qi Heng has been waiting for, he raises his eyebrows, and a slightly crafty look comes to his eyes, he deliberately asks why she is so late today and gets the answer he wanted: Minglan is late because Scholar Zhuang gives her extra assignment due to her clumsy handwriting. Qi Heng immediately offers assistance: he is able to mimic her writing and is willing to help her out. 5)Minglan turned down his offering firmly. Qi Heng then started his last strike - bringing out a box of water chestnuts, but Minglan refused to take his gift. Qi Heng smiled and picked up a water chestnut and try to break it for Minglan, the shell of the water chestnut is very hard, so he failed. Xiaotao helped him out, Qi Heng smiled and handed the box of water chestnut and a bag to Minglan and left. To most of the people, he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, a decent and polite gentleman, the only son and heir of a princess and a duke, the most handsome man in the capital. But when he is with Minglan, he is just this innocent young boy from the neighborhood, loves Minglan with all his heart opening to her. Completely forget who he is,painstakingly tried all his best, just want to get her to smile back to him. Zhu Yilong really caught the essence of this role and put on an act, which showed the pure and innocent puppy love of a young aristocrat thoroughly.

    All about Qi Heng and Minglan (1) Background information (Based on the drama version) Set in the Northern Song dynasty, “The story of Minglan" revolves around Sheng Minglan, the unfavoured sixth daughter of an official Sheng Hong. Minglan’s biological mother was one of Sheng Hong’s concubines who died giving birth to her second child, Minglan was 8 years at that time. Minglan was then raised up by her grandmother. Due to her biological mother’s suspicious death, Minglan learned to hide her skills and true intentions. Sheng Hong is a level five official in the government (A medium level position). The Sheng family’s private school hired a very experienced scholar, Mr. Zhuang, as the private tutor for the family school. Qi Heng, the only son of the Duke of Qi,also studies at the Sheng's family school. Qi Heng is the heir of the Duke of Qi, by his wife Princess Pingning. Princess Pingning‘s maiden name is “Chai”, which is a very peculiar family name in the Song Dynasty. The Chai family was the ruler of the “Hou Zhou” Dynasty. The "Hou Zhou” Dynasty was overthrown by Zhao Kuangying, the first emperor of the Song Dynasty, in a military coup. To save his reputation, Zhao Kuangying gave the “Chai” family a title of “Prince”, but the “Chai” family doesn’t have any real power in the court. Most of the male members from the Chai family died of unknown reasons. Princess Pingning was adopted by the empress and raised up in the royal court. The relationship between the Princess and the Empress is also very delicate - they seem pretty close but the royal couple isn't fully trusting Princess Pingning. Qi Heng falls in love with Minglan, our smart and beautiful female protagonist. Minglan also has a crush on Qi Heng but she could not accept his love because she believes this relationship is doomed and she also doesn’t want her two half-sisters to be jealous of it. Episode 5 - The first scene of Qi Heng (EP5:0900) The first scene of Qi Heng starts at EP5:0900 when child actors changed into adult actors. We can see when he is in the same room with her, Qi Heng's eyes always trailing after Minglan like a sunflower follows every moment of the sun. Episode 5 - the new year’s visit:: Hide and seek(EP5:11:00) Qi Heng visits the Sheng family to bid for the new year. Sheng Hong, his sons, and Qi Heng are talking about calligraphy in the drawing room while the ladies are sitting at the other end of the room, separated by a folding screen. While talking to Sheng Hong, Qi Heng’s eyes keep on following Minglan. Seeing her smile or hearing her laugh makes his heart happy. His valet Buwei moved to the side and blocked his view, Qi Heng is a bit annoyed by Buwei. Episode 5 - the new year’s visit:: The lie(EP5:14:20) Buwei asks Qi Heng if he plans to stay for dinner, Qi Heng says the person in charge of the imperial examination will be here tonight so it is better to stay. Buwei says: You are coaxing, you want to stay at the Sheng House because of sixth Miss. Qi Heng is a bit mad and scolded Buwei: ”Shut up!” He knows how harmful it could be when a girl’s name is in a gossip. A few seconds later, Qi Heng couldn't hold back his smile---simply hearing her name makes him happy, it feels like something is touching his heart softly. Episode 5 - the new year’s visit:: The handkerchief incident (EP5:15:15) Well, “handkerchief” might not be the best translation of the item he lost. The item is something that people used to tie their underwear in ancient China, and it is also something that couples often use to demonstrate their love to each other. Now you understand why he makes a big fuss about it because he doesn’t want anyone to use it to blackmail him. Episode 5 - the new year’s visit:: The flower cake (EP5:17:15) The maids serve flower cakes to the guests, Minglan takes one and starts eating. Qi Heng looks at Minglan and takes one and starts eating as well. Seems that love makes his brain wired and focused on Minglan whenever he sees her or knows her presence, he does the same thing with what Minglan does, and he stays because she’s there, he goes because she left. Episode 5 - the new year’s visit:: The little detective (EP5:22:01) Molan framed a maid by putting Qi Heng’s handkerchief to the maid’s outfits and the maid is punished by the Big Madam. Minglan and Yanran started analyzing the case and Minglan came to the conclusion that the maid is innocent. Overheard Minglan and Yanran’s conversation, Qi Heng appeared from the back of the rock-work. He looks perfectly calm and collected, and there is a slight touch of pride and of being annoyed on his face. He nodded to Yanran with reservedness and pride, but his eyes become so soft and tender as soon as he sees Minglan. As a decent and upstanding young gentleman, Qi Heng's role does not allow exaggerated body languages or strong facial expression. But the expression in his eyes are so different when he faces different people, he’s unable to hide his feelings for Minglan. Zhu Yilong performed this role brilliantly. When he is with Minglan, his dreamy eyes are as deep as the ocean, and there are boundless affection and tenderness in the eyes. The emotional changes of the role are very natural and smooth, Zhu Yilong’s eyes can talk, for real.

  5. Hi guys, Would it be OK if I post some reviews about Qi Heng (ZYL's role in the story of Minglan )on this thread? Or should I go to the drama thread instead? I am little hesitated to post my reviews on the drama thread because I will be focusing on QH and I don’t want supporters of other roles /actors to be unhappy.

    We don't really know whether he will be part of Youku activities, there is nothing settled yet I think. As for nominated for an award, I am not aware of it either. It would be great if he is recognized by the filming community. For his role in The story of Minglan, I am doing some analysis on the original novel but too bad you guys cannot read Chinese otherwise you can get a lot of information

    Zhu Yi Long 朱一龙 Official Thread

    Title: Today’s interview : Zhu Yilong (In this interview, all questions are written on the screen) Q: The Upcoming “Yang and his summer” is a comedy movie, do you like comedy movies? A:(0:04)Yes I do, I like comedy movies. Q: Who is your favorite comedy actors and which comedy movie you liked the most? A:(0:06)Ge You and Stephen Chow are my favorite comedy actors in China, I love all their movies. Q: What is your favorite comedy movie outside of China? A:(0:14)Internationally, I like the “Truman’s world”, it is my favorite comedy movie. The reason I like comedy movies is that while it is funny and makes you smile, it also allows you to self-reflect. Comedy movies usually portray some nonentities, but they let you think profoundly. Q: In this movie (Yang and his summer), you played a photographer, do you like photography? Are you good at taking selfies? A:(0:38) I am pretty good at taking photos, I like taking photos but I am not good at taking selfies. Q: Are there any of your fans complaining about your selfies? A: (0:43)Yes they do, they always complaining about I am always wearing a hat or a mask while taking selfies, or covering my face... that’s because I am not good at it…. Q: This photographer (the movie character) is a scheming, and a cynical person, a weirdo, does this resemble yourself? What is your character like? A:(0:52)Nope, my own character … actually, I have no character (smiling)at all. I am not really that kind of person who takes things to the extreme, I feel I become more not that an extremist while growing up. Q: In this movie, your character fulfilled his father’s dream of becoming a car racing champion, in your life, have you ever done anything that moves your parents? A:(01:13): In my family, we all like friends, I don’t really know if they are touched… I am pretty close with my parents, I do some little things for them sometimes such as making a cake or something like that. Q: Famous comedy movie actors such as Chen Peisi and Pan Changjiang are guest actors of this movie, do you feel nervous when working with them? Are there any interesting stories you can share? A:(01:29) I am not really nervous per say but I am kind of worried my performance isn’t good enough because I didn’t have much experience in comedy. Actually, comedy movies have higher requirements on actors, your language rhythm and your body rhythm… if you missed a tiny bit, the difference on screen effect could be huge. Chen Peisi and Pan Changjiang are veteran comedy actors, they are very good at what they are doing, so I have to prepare myself better, do more homework before shooting. As for funny things on set, there was one scene that I liked the most and I was very satisfied. I have a scene with Chen Peisi, there was only one line on the script, but Chen Peisi was acting nonstop, and the director didn’t say cut so I kept playing with Chen Peisi for a very long time. There was just one line on the script and all I need to do is to say the line and then get out, and we are done. Chen Peisi is really good at improvised acting, and the director didn’t say cut so I improvised with Chen Peisi on that scene for a very long time and that was very satisfying. Q: In the spy movie “Eternal Wave”, you played an intelligence agent who is also a gifted pianist, do you play piano or other musical instruments? Q:(2:41) Yes I do, I played Piano since I was a child because my mum forced me to do so... right now I like the guitar better. Q: The character in “Eternal Wave”, what touches you the most? A: (02:55)This character lost connection with his team in the anti-japanese war (World war II), after that, he got a coverup job in a restaurant , he use the pianist to cover his identity and waited for his team there, and eventually he was able to get in touch with the role play by Aaron Kwok and reunited with his team. Q: Your next project is “The Story of Minglan”, you are going to play Qi Heng, a gentleman with jade-like warmness and smoothness, how did you prepare for this role? A:(03:22)In my opinion this role is pretty difficult to play because he is known as a very handsome man, in the novel and script, everybody thinks he is very handsome, in fact, Qi Heng didn’t show up that much in the navel and script, but all the girls in the Sheng family loved him, everybody says he is so handsome all the time, so it is very difficult for me to play because how would you portray “handsomeness” ? But … you know I feel I am an average guy, my mom says I am an “average good looking guy”, compared with ordinary people I might be OK but Qi Heng is the most handsome guy in the capital city, so I think I am not really up to that standard yet. Q: For all the roles you have played, which one you liked the most and which one made a deep impression on you? A:(04:08)I like them all because I devoted my efforts to all of them. As for the one that made the deepest impression on me, that would be Fu Hongxue, when I was reading the novel “Edge City Wanderer”, I had many thoughts on this character and I devoted a lot when I was shooting for this role. This character has a pretty tragic background so I resonated with him and empathize with him a lot. Q: Are there any veteran actors you particularly like? Who is wanted to work with the most? A:(04:38) I want to with all of them, Stephen Chow and Jiang Wen in particular. I like actors who don’t really look like actors but are able to deliver great performance once they are on the stage. Q: Beside being a good actor, which career would you like to try? A:(04:53)I had thought about it… If I am not an actor, what else can I do? Now looks like there isn’t much I can do… Because I have been an actor for a very long time, so I can only be an actor. Q: How would you relax after work? A:(05:04) I will probably lay down at home for a whole day, watching movies, playing piano etc., if I go out I would just travel, I seldom go shopping

    Warning: This is a VERY long article , ignore it if you don’t like conspiracy theory! You guys might wonder why there are so many people get paid to attack ZYL and/or other actors/actress? This issue is very complicated. It involves capital, rival agencies (companies or agencies which have similar actors/actresses competing film and drama roles, chances to participating variety shows, product promotion & campaign opportunities ), and the dirty companies who hired those haters to get more viewers(the uglier the news, the more viewers, hence the more advertisement income ). As individuals, there is not much we can do to stop this from happening. The overall consensus amongst most ZYL's fans are : 1) Be sensible about what you said in public spaces in China such as Weibo , Zhihu and etc. ,try not to provide any materials that can be used to against ZYL or cause any fight with fans' of other celebrities , i.e. comparing him with other actors or public figures . But I think it is OK for you guys do it here or YoueTube/Facebook and I even think it might help ZYL because that shows his international influence. 2)Ignore those dirty companies's dirty news, if there are less people reading about their dirty news, the less the commercial profit they got. 3)Support products he endorsed: Yogurts, drinks, skin care lotions etc. 4)Support and promote his dramas, films and shows 5)Support him on some statistics data such as daily signups, votes , sending admiration flowers online etc., there are companies in China specialized in analysing celebrities' fans statistics. The higher that data ranking, the higher his commercial value is, and the bigger the chance he gets more commercial opportunities. 6)Support volunteering and charity events under his name. Some fans are building an elementary school for poor kids using ZYL and BY’s names 7)Don't participate those dog fights. Let it cool down. Here comes the conspiracy theory!
 8)The issue with capital is even more complicated. It is related to tax policy and hot money issues in China.
 8.1)Tax rate in China and tax fraud in entertainment industry
 The Income tax rates for individuals are somewhere from 5%-40% depending on your monthly income. 
 The business tax rates for companies are somewhere from 3% to 20% depending on the business size and the industry sections. 
 Cultural events/agencies/entertainment companies's tax rate is ~5%. 
 AND there is a region where you can get tax exempt for 5 years for those type of entertainment companies. 
 For example, a senior software engineer can easily pay 20-35% of income tax but a movie star who got paid hundreds of times more only pays 5-6% if s/he has a company under his/her name. Even as this low rate, some movie stars/idols still try not to pay their tax. Tax fraud is easy to commit in entertainment industry because :
 Individual employees in other industries usually have long term employment contracts and with more predictable income People in entertainment industry tend to have one time contracts and the pay rates are not transparent There was essentially no auditing/monitoring in the entertainment industry in the past.
 
 8.2)Therefore there was enormous amount of hot money went to entertainment industry. The influx of huge amount of hot money caused many issues:
 In the last few years, there were at least ~500 dramas being made each year but less than half of those dramas got broadcasted, the reason for that could be bad business decisions but many times those investments were more for money laundry purposes. 
 There were many idol making events in China in the last few years, young and beautiful people participating in singing or dancing contests to get an easy way to entertainment industry. Those idols tend to get paid more than professionally trained actors , singers and dancers such as ZYL and Bai Yu. There were lots of capital controlled events to attack/smear other actors so to control the commercial market value. 
 8.3)Here there is a good news. 
 There is a huge nationwide event going in China to check these companies/agencies tax fraud issues . They need to repay whatever their avoid paying via tax fraud for the last two years. They have a month or so to make up for it or they will get suited for fraud after the grace period. 
 There will be more restricted auditing /monitoring in entertainment industry 
 8.4)Therefore it is expected that there will be much less capital goes to entertainment industry in China in the coming years because of the taxation policy will be changed very soon and the ongoing nationwide taxation auditing in entertainment industry. The winter is coming. Last month, there was a news saying that there are only about 20-30% of new dramas being made this year in Hongdian, the largest drama filming site in China. And it is reported hundreds of entrainment companies/agencies closed their businesses in the last few weeks. 8.5)It is believed professionals like ZYL or Bai Yu won’t be affected that much because -When you wanted to make a proper drama instead of doing money laundry, you need people who can really act. it is expected actors will get pay less in general. Some idols got pay 5-10 times higher than ZYL or Bai Yu in the past but will less incoming hot money, things will return to where is should be. The idols are more likely to be devalued because their companies business profit will decrease due to higher tax rate and less chances to do fraud.

    @biskotmeriHi I am from China and I think as long as you don't say it in a Chinese app or website such as Weibo, Zhihu or Tianya then it is OK. I think you have the right to express your idea. It is just because there are some really bad people in China who are paid to sabotage ZYL. If you say it here then they 1) Won't be able to access this site because most people in China need to use VPN to access sites like Youtube, Facebook and there are lots of Youtube content here, 2)Most of these professional haters won't be able to use English properly, because a well educated people will get a proper job.

    Nirvana in Fire has some very good antagonists. You should try it if you haven't see Nirvana in Fire. It is one of the best, if not the best drama in China.

    Hi @TheRedDragon Right now most 小笼包 are trying to stay low profile on the shampoo issue, there is not much discussion on this subject on weibo or forum because 小笼包 don't their words to be used to against ZYL . 小笼包 are waiting for shk and ZYL's agency to settle this issue. But for sure not that many 小笼包 buying shk products after the incident. I will let you know if there is more update from ZYL's agency.
