@jimmylyne It’s one of soompi forum rules. You can click “The Rules” blue tab above if you want to know more. The specific rule reads:
“4. Do not quote pictures or long posts. Instead, remove images in your quotes. Quotes do not count towards the 20-character limit rule. If you're going to quote a picture or post, say something about it. If a quote is too long (more than 10 lines), only quote a subsection of the text. Quoted pictures set in spoiler tags are considered a violation as well. Threads that are meant solely for pictures belong in the k-entertainment general discussion.”
You did well @Cedric Ong for the quick reply.
@redfoxprincess I also liked Liu Ruilin as 16th in TMOPB. I liked his love story with the demon princess Yan Zhi. I didn’t find him handsome there as well as in Flame’s Daughter. But seeing his photos for Pillow Book, I say that he has the looks for the role of Yan Chiwu/Xiao Yan who was described in the book as quite handsome. I think he looks better in black and his makeup and hair suits him as compared to those 2 dramas I mentioned earlier where he wore white and his hair was tied in a tight topknot.
I wonder if the drama will follow the book that his heart would be broken by Jiheng. It wasn’t clear in the book what happened to him and Jiheng in the end. Jiheng was brought back to the Demon Realm to recuperate after DH cured her of the Qiushui poison while Yan Chiwu went into coma after he lost in a battle on his way to deliver DH letter to FJ. (That precious letter could have explained DH delay for the wedding and saved our DongFeng from too much heartache. But well, it gave us one hell of a rollercoaster ride that made me not want to stop reading until I reached the end. )
I wish that in the drama, Xiao Yan and Jiheng will be given a decent love story ending. This the good girl in me saying. However.... sorry but I am tempted to be a bad girl on this matter. LOL Coz I really hated Jiheng for what she did to break FJ and DH. Gosh, she made my blood boil! She was fine in the beginning but when she fell in love with DH, she became irrational and foolish. Committing suicide and abusing DH’ promise to her father in order to ask DH to back out from marrying FJ is utterly base, disgusting, shameless, despicable and contemptible. The lowest of the low. I feel that Yan Chiwu is too good for her. So I rather want Yan Chiwu to be paired with someone who deserved him coz I agree that he’s an honorable man and sweet. (He was only provoked by thick-skinned DH to challenge him to a fight.) And for Jiheng to be banished somewhere to reform. Or maybe they can turn her into some enchanted object. A doormat would be good.
@karinos, I bet this forum will have a lot of traffic once the drama will be aired. Excitement is overflowing already even this early.
