  1. I also love this character. He’s so funny. I wonder if his character was supposed to be written as comedic, or the actor made it so. Here’s another scene of him which I found hilarious.
  2. I’ve been locked out of my account for the past few days, and I had been dying to add my two cents worth about DFS. Definitely can’t stand him. From the time he tried to ruin BQ’s reputation by kidnapping her and spending one night with her, to setting up rival shops to compete with her, and almost destroying XX’s martial arts skills, and not forgetting kidnapping YL and causing her to beg him on her knees .... so many atrocious deeds ... and he thinks he can still win her heart? Delusional! I don’t know what his background is, but he has no sense of propriety, and definitely no sense of righteousness and morals. Even if he ends up sacrificing himself for BQ at the end of the story, I don’t think he can redeem himself enough for me to have one shred of sympathy for him. Anyway, @themarchioness Thank you so much for your recaps! Reading your thoughts which came with them made me laugh.
  3. @40somethingahjumma I believe that scene implies exactly what you are thinking. They were separated for a period of time and reunited finally, and knowing now with great relief that they are actually not siblings. All those suppressed feelings .... you get the drift .... @mimidq8 In the book, they were reunited in the garden, and the maids were a short distance away, so it’s not possible to *ahem* ... so just kissing and hugging. Haha ...
  4. Looks like it’s only 4 episodes next week. No broadcast on 7th Feb ... sad ... but at least we will see CY and BQ reunite finally !!!
  5. I believe that is either his ‘school name’ or ‘courtesy name’ used by his peers. It is considered disrespectful to address him directly by his given name, which can only be used by his parents or elders.
  6. To add to @crackaddict ‘s post on the difficult position that MRF is in, he is not only protecting his Mother but the entire Mo family. Imagine what Qi Wang Ye will do if it is revealed that BQ died in the hands of MRF’s Mother. The entire Mo extended Family will probably be executed and the employees, servants etc, sold off as slaves. MRF is responsible for the business and many people’s livelihood. And since there is no antidote to save BQ, rationally speaking, there is no point sacrificing more lives. It won’t bring her back to life anyway. Looks like MRF’s story arc has ended? So we won’t be seeing him anymore. Aawww ... anyway, the drama has introduced a new actress to look out for in future dramas.
  7. Is Biluotian treasure and how BQ is the holy maiden to be sacrificed to access the treasure written in the novel? If this story arc only exists in the drama, then we can only guess what will happen next in the story. So far, DFS knows that BQ is his betrothed, but the question is, does he know about the BiLuotian treasure, and his grandfather’s intention to use her to get the treasure? We don’t know his intentions yet, but he seems like a decent guy so far. Hopefully, he is just set on marrying her because he likes her, and not because of the treasure. Anyway, I have no doubt that it will be a happy ending. Just waiting to see how they resolve the Biluotian treasure story arc.
  8. No, not yet. So that’s why she cried bitterly when she saw CY’s face in the new trailers for Ep. 16.
  9. I am intrigued by the good looking Mo Ruo Fei and looked up the actor. Turns out it is played by a female actress called Xing En https://www.weibo.com/xxxingxxx. Nice interaction between MRF and Buqi. Hope he can protect her from his Mother.
  10. I am #18. Quite late in joining this thread - only at Ep. 12, so I can’t join your discussion in real time. But I must say that I was blown away by the fight scene in Ep. 6, when NQ helped Chao Xiao Shu. Now enjoying NQ’s daily ongoings at the Academy. How awesome was is it when the 3rd Prince tried to embarrass him at the Club, and the drinks ended up being on the house because of NQ? Ha!
  11. @harooxxx 嫡子(dizi) is the Son of the Empress. People in those days place more emphasis on the children of the main Wife, as opposed to concubines. I am behind in the episodes, now only watching Ep. 64 (downfall of Jia Gui Fei, and her Son, the 4th Prince). I‘Ve lost the watching fervour of the earlier episodes, maybe too many episodes in this long drama. And maybe also dreading the upcoming decline of Ruyi’s power as Wei Yan Wan schemes and climbs her way up. I enjoyed Jia Gui Fei as the villain - she is a strangely compelling to watch. But Wei Yan Wan is irritating, and I really dislike the fact that her Son will eventually inherit the throne.
  12. The Maid in the photo is Suo Xin, Ru Yi’s maid. Empress second maid is Lian Xin. It certainly seems like she hesitated a bit, maybe she remembered how the Empress married her off to that awful Eunuch, but I don’t think it would have made a difference. She’s not the only one who hesitated - the concubines, Ling Yun Che also seemed to have delayed the rescue.
  13. This episode is not shown yet. Maybe you saw the preview. Briefly, I must say that most of Ru Yi’s clothes look so dull, except for a gorgeous deep blue dress, which left an impression on me.
  14. No doubt she suffered for the few years she was in the gardening department, and serving under Jia Fei (just saw in the last few episodes that Jia Fei is originally from Korea, and her surname is Kim), but she had always intended to seduce the Emperor. Looks like she has achieved her dream in Ep. 36
  15. No, their voices were dubbed by other people. I think the same woman also dubbed Yang Mi’s voice in Legend of Fuyao. The man who dubbed Mark Chao is quite famous. If you scroll back the previous pages, someone posted a link to him. I enjoyed the drama when it was being broadcast last year. I still occasionally watch Ep. 30, my favourite episode.
  16. I think it’s a nice touch, even though it was unintended. It’s quite normal for young girls to look a little rounder, you know, we call it baby fat, then slim down as they grow up. I suppose people who are used to seeing her slim face, as shown in your 2 contrasting photos above, would notice it. I think they could have done something about Zhou Xun’s voice, though, maybe make it a bit more youthful sounding, as befitting a 15 year old, then use her normal deeper voice for the adult parts of the drama. Anyway, I am enjoying this drama. Now that Ruyi is realising that she can’t stay her sweet self anymore, she will learn that she needs to be careful of the scheming around her, and take pre-emptive strikes on those who want to harm her. Through the cold palace ordeal, she also now knows who are her true and loyal friends.
  17. Empress Dowager forbid it when Ruyi could join finally join them at the Palace (after Qian Long ascended the throne). Qian Long is thinking that when Ruyi bears a child, he will promote her to Gui Fei. I’m enjoying this drama. Ruyi has a calm way of dealing with problems. Instead of immediately confronting the evil doer, she bides her time and waits for a good opportunity - like the “one arrow shoot 4 birds” situation when she saved herself from Gao Gui Fei’s evil plot to get her into trouble, while saving Lian Xin also.
  18. When the events unfolded in the wedding hall, Jin Mi was pretty much a bystander, watching expressionless. But when XF started to wield the Liu Li Jing Huo (glass fire) in his hand, she was jolted because she recalled how her Mother Flower God, her Father Water God, and Aunt Ling Xiu Wind God were killed by it. Already her 3 most closest relatives were killed by the fire, how could she let her future Husband be also decimated by it? That’s when she took out the water dagger to stab XF, in a desperate attempt to save her only remaining family member. I would think it’s a reflex action at that point in time. Anyway, as someone who has not read the book, I find the drama riveting enough. I understand that the book was written from the first person perspective, so there could have been many things happening around Jin Mi which she was not aware of. The drama is just filling in the gaps which makes the story easier to understand for those of us who have not read the book.
  19. There are only 2 persons in the 6 realms who can cast the Liu Li Jing Huo (glass fire) skill, and they are the Empress and Xu Feng. Since the Empress is imprisoned, then logically, the only other person must be Xu Feng. However, if you watched Ep. 42, you will notice that
  20. @rosierosie yeah @BellyButton is right. BBJX is about Yong Zheng, who is the Father of Hong Li we saw in the first episode. There is no mention of Ruo Xi here, so let’s just assume that he had already moved on after her death (although Ruo Xi is a fictional character, haha). I was also trying to recall the character of Hong Li when he appeared as a child in BBJX. He was playing with a girl, who was the Daughter of 13th prince and being looked after by Ruo Xi. If we really want to link the 2 dramas together, let’s just say that after Ruo Xi passed away, the girl was adopted by the Brother of Empress Ulanara, so she now appears as her niece, Qing Ying, in this drama.
  21. Yes, they both remember and Jin Mi is troubled by it. I thought the mortal realm episodes were nicely done, building up the story of how they met, fell in love, the conflict of why they can’t be together, then dying together.
  22. After watching Ep. 5, I suspect it may be due to Ruyi being influenced by the Western artist who talked about the one Husband one Wife system, and how one can leave the marriage when there is no more love. I’m guessing that maybe after Qian Long fell in love with another woman, she decided to provoke him so that he will allow her to leave. But of course, that is not allowed during those days, so that’s why she was neglected or cast into the Cold Palace. Kind of similar to what happened to her aunt, the previous Empress. I dont know this history story but does Hai Lan play an important role later in the drama? The actress playing her is quite famous, and was in another modern drama earlier this year. anyway, I’m enjoying this riveting drama.
  23. I confess I have a soft spot for the Night God Run Yu. He’s so gentlemanly and polite, and treats his staff nicely. Yet he’s had such a lonely life, banished to the night and missing out on all the activities that are going on in the day. Probably the Empress’s doing, trying to diminish his presence and power. His Mother was also killed by the Empress who has killed off all the women in the Emperor’s life. I can totally imagine that growing up like that, he will want to hang on to Jin Mi, since she is already bethrothed to him, the only thing or person that he can legitimately call his own. Maybe he is wrong to take advantage of Jin Mi’s naievety about love - he struggled with the decision, but I totally get why he did it. Jin Mi and the Night God have a lot in common - they are both water based, and both their mothers were killed by the Empress. They would have made a good team, except of course for our dear Fire God Feng Huang, who is truly and deeply in love with Jin Mi. Major Angst is starting ... prepare ourselves ...
  24. Yes, he knew. It’s really funny that the first thing Jin Mi asked for was for the Emperor to pass her some spiritual cultivation, and he willingly passed her 5,000 years (FH passed her 1,000 years). She must be quite powerful by now
