People are forgetting hes 17 .. people at that age make dumb mistakes but i still think it suits his character. 

Yes he’s 17, but 17 in that time period is not the same as 17 today. They are usually married with a family and lots of responsibilities before 20. They may not keep to historical accuracies in other areas but that is one thing they did keep to so for me, it doesn’t suit his character development and is a little cliche. It also goes against his prayer for her to find a good husband and live a good life when he does this after she’s already married. Now if he had done before ML got married then for me that would have been in keeping with his character. But either way, it’ll be a part of making GTY/ML grow as a couple so I’m just going to enjoy watching :D

Seems like they move stuff earlier. 

I just hope the fight doesn't last that long in the drama...:tears:

Cuz in the trailer, he actually went to look for another woman or something? Just to spite ML...

There's a scene that he was hugging a woman looking a lil drunk...?

I do wonder how they will make up tho...

Really? 

In the book he never had other women, even if one tried to push herself on him especially  during the fall out . ( if I got this right) But he was faithful.

I dont think he went to look for another woman. I think he went to drink and a woman try to touch his hand but he moved away, no hugging. That's what i saw in the trailer. Same i hope the fight doesn't last long too. I dont even want to think about it, already feel hurt just by thinking.

 

I think in the book....Hugging when drunk happened with ML.

In the book he had concubines in the Gu house too. But he never paid much attention to them. When he got married to ML he kind of promised her...he won't go to anyone else. He also told her to do what she wants with his previous concubines. Make them work or sell them off. When ML and GTY had a fight and started sleeping separately, these concubines and the other maids who wanted to climb the ranks started getting ideas. Maids from his step mom and his aunts, even maids from Da niang tried to take advantage of the quarrel between ML and GTY.  I don't know if I remember this correctly, but GTY got tired of all the women and forbade any female from coming into his study...

Trailers and previews are mostly misleading as they are not in sequence. So I'm not too worried about it.

I mean not every male was the same sure Most Male's did that but not all of them, he wants ML to have a good husband he most likely just does not think that is GTY.

Well they cut the concubines i hope they cut all these maids as well. 

 

Also what happens with the Yuan family the older sister is there does she get any support or help because in recent episode her kid was taken away.

Next two episodes are full of events. I love every bit of the preview. Rulan was adorable too . But I can’t wait for them and the wedding.

so the spoiler about the wedding on Thursday was right.

Hualan will have a hard time for a while.

Spoiler

 

Her MIL is slowly draining away Hualan's dowry. Then whenever she gets mad at Hualan she makes demands and the Sheng family have to send something expensive to pacify her. Hualan's son almost got burned coz he was left alone by the MIL in the room with a burning stove. His little sister was passing by and saw her brother about to get burned so jumped in front of him and saved him. She ended up getting burned instead and had scars on her arms and hands....her brother too got a bit burned. He got scarred near his eye. After that Hualan had enough and begged her husband to get her child back. But her MIL still kept making trouble. She was taking money from other daughter in law too. Situation became that Hualan and her kids wore old mended clothes. And she had nothing new to wear on her sisters wedding. She had to sell one of her jewelry for the money.

After ML and GTY marriage, Hualan used to come visit ML frequently. So ML gave her an idea to get a concubine for her Father in law....so that her MIL will have no time to bully the Daughters in law. Concubine quickly became the favorite and started helping Hualan handle the Mother in law....by getting the father in law involved.

I think I skipped Hualan's chapters coz I don't remember this at all....but I recently read this on the spoiler site so just posting it here.

Just understand some part. Ml thanking gty for saving his life. She will pay him back with her life. And when gty went to his horse ml said i'll wait for you to comeback. Gty replied i'll come back if you are waiting for me. And ml whisper i didn't mean that.  Correct me if i'm wrong my fellow soompier.

GTY said, You and I really must have a fate together. Whenever you are in distress, you run into me. 

ML said,  yes you are my life saviour. when I go back home I'll make a you a longevity tablet and burn incense.

GTY is not convinced with her gratitude. So she says these are not empty words but I really want to repay you for all you done for me.

GTY asks, how can you repay me.

ML said, with my life.

GTY said, what would I do with your life.

ML said there are only few people in this world who I can repay with my life. My mother, my granny and you.

GTY then asked, what about your husband to be...something like that

ML asked him, what does he know about that.

 

He changes the subject and gives her some instructions to take care of the wound. And tells her to wait until dawn and look out for his flare or something. And if he fails in coming back...he has arranged someone for her to take her home. 

 

I didn't get all the sentences....some words were not making sense on Google translate.

Poor guy was basically making a declaration; it was really foreshadowing even her including him with her mother and granny
