[Mainland Chinese Drama 2015] The Four 少年四大名捕

Recommended Posts

@celebrianna, re: JC, I don't know.  She has a pretty lengthy filmography already.  I'll definitely keep an eye out for her in the future!  Don't know that I'm all that interested in her past projects though... some of them I've heard of, but didn't know about her then.

 

Wu Qin’s wooden floors appeared generally clean and polished. I don’t remember if the wood seemed dirty when he was drunk though. Coldblood’s floor has some blemishes in the wood near the entrance and the carpet looks kind of dirty when the camera showed the cut waist tie from Li Mo’s maid outfit. lol However, I suppose in those days they didn’t have a vacuum closer but at least the carpet can be hung up outside and beaten to get rid of the dirt. 

 

I feel like I must now do a full rewatch again just to inspect these two floors!  (Convenient excuse?  I'll let you decide . . . ^_^)  I will say though that, in general, one gets the sense that Wu Qin is into the finer things whereas I'm pretty sure Coldblood would  be happy to just have a roof over his head and clothing on his back.  You can sense their different styles from their clothing and their choice of decor (which is something I did notice about their quarters).  That may, however, account for some of the other differences you noticed as well.  (I'm definitely going to go check out that carpet since you've identified that specific moment, lol!)  

 

About that scene where he takes Li Mo’s hand, I felt bad for YH though.

 

You're a kinder person than me then.  It's not that I don't have sympathy for her or that there aren't moments where I feel bad for her, but on the whole, I also feel like it's a choice she (and other characters like her) make.  He couldn't have been clearer with her when he told her to live her own life, but she still persisted, held on, and refused to go.  I don't know.  It's hard for me to feel sympathetic in that moment.  

 

 

I find it so curious that after getting together the only time Li Mo and him discussed his revenge at length was when he was trying to break up with her. He did mention his revenge the night he proposed to her but only briefly. 

 

Perhaps because his revenge plans were so widely known by then and plus she knew from having read his mind what was in his past and his future.  Honestly, when he explained his revenge plans to Yao Hua, I felt like that was as much for the viewers' benefit as it was for her so that we, as watchers of the drama, would better understand his character and know what he was going through.  Yao Hua was a convenient vehicle for that explanation and it worked the plotting of the story.  I don't place any significance then on the fact that he discussed it in greater detail with her versus Li Mo.

 

Also, when he returned from Long Xi without Li Mo and was in her room sitting on her bed, it suddenly occurred to me that after they got together there was only one or two scenes of them together in the room now compared to many in the past when they were not together. It also probably reinforced Li Mo’s decision to leave since they weren’t talking and they still shared the same lodging. Talk about uncomfortable.

 

Re: discomfort - so true!  It was already tense and awkward for them when they ran into each other along the corridor.  Re: the reduced number of scenes of them together in their rooms though, I think that's because he got called before the temp-emperor (or whatever we're calling that guy) soon after they were able to return to the Bureau.  That was immediately followed by his attempts to break up with her and then their next journey.

@themarchioness, ROFL I know, I know. I’m unobservant about everything in those rooms except the floor. It’s so funny that I kept looking to see the blemish on Coldblood’s floor while thinking Li Mo is not doing her job well. lol And all that dust from the hanging lamp made me wonder if it hadn’t been cleaned for ages. lol It just seemed like too much dust was falling on Coldblood’s face when she was dusting it to get her hilarious revenge. lol I I totally agree that their rooms show their personalities. Even the names of the lodging seem to represent their taste. Coldblood lodging is Flying Clouds and Flashing Lightning and Heartless’ Motivation Clean and Behavior Straight. ^_^

 

I guess I felt bad for Yao Hua because of the way she reacted. Also, she really thought he had died and she was so happy to see him alive and I guess I just felt bad for her because she totally had her hopes up not knowing that Coldblood and Li Mo finally made some progress on the romantic front. Somehow she makes me feel more for her than YX. However, you’re absolutely right. Her persistence in this matter makes any hurt she suffered her responsibility. Although I haven’t reached the episodes where she turns on Coldblood, I must say now that my sympathy subsided in the conversation where she accused Coldblood of forcing her to take the wrong path because he rejected her when ASG made him choose between her life and Li Mo’s life.

 

By the way, I keep forgetting to mention how beautiful I think Li Mo’s mom is. The shape of her face kind of matches Li Mo’s too.

Super busy weekend (super busy with work these days) so I haven't had a chance to check out those floors, but you know I definitely will.  (I may have finally moved on from H2H, but I'm still at one with The Four, LOL.)  The hanging lamps definitely hadn't been dusted in a long while in order for there to be so much dust falling on his face.  But I think there was that much dust in the first place to serve a purpose for that scene (and not for us to necessarily think he has a dirty room).  It's similar to how Heartless had a dusty sign outside his quarters, which meant that Li Mo then had to climb a ladder to dust it in order for her to fall and have him catch her.  i guess the writers didn't anticipate we would dissect all these little scenes and think of everything though!  ;) 

 

Speaking of questioning things, something I've long wondered about, when Li Mo, Mu Xue, and Heartless stop at that abandoned cottage on their way back from that tribal village to the Bureau, they decide to help him find his memory by restaging Ru Yen's departure to get married and death  . . . but where do suddenly they find that palanquin and the people to carry it?!  They're in the middle of a forest.  Haha.  Oh, this drama and its logics sometimes... Hee!

 

As for Yao Hua, oh yes, my eyes were definitely rolling hard when she tried to blame Coldblood for her decision to work with ASG.  But by the end, even though I hadn't felt much sympathy for her along the way, I definitely felt bad for her in that scene outside the cave.  You could just see how she regretted everything and now was having to live with those consequences, and that was rough.  Also, she was never a "bad" person, she just struggled with her one-sided devotion towards Coldblood.  I liked her, in spite of herself.

 

Agree with you on Li Mo's mother.  She was pretty.

@themarchioness, I’m in the same boat as you. Work...work...work.

 

Anywho, yes, it was so hilarious to me that they had all the trappings and people to participate in their re-enactment of Heartless’ tragedy. One thing I kept wondering about is how Li Mo kept casually reporting about the tragedy of his love life without any qualms about hurting him. I understand that she wanted him to remember but it seemed a bit insensitive to me for her to talk so casually to MX about it right in front of Heartless though he still had amnesia.

My friend started telling me about how she wanted to try and see the Super Blood Wolf Moon eclipse today, and the entire time she was talking, all I could think was, "Will Coldblood make an appearance?"  :lol:
