  1. this drama is AMAZING. I finished up to epi 25 on amazon & I am dying for more... It's sad that this series isn't getting a lot of love here on the forums - it is so smart, witty & entertaining. Plus I love the slow burn between zhang & tan qi... Jackson Yee is totally impressing me - at 17 (which is how old he was when he filmed this), he is better than other actors who are in their 20's and 30's. He is totally holding his own with the more older actors.
  2. I have a question, what did Shifu carve into the side of the mountain when he realized that Xiaofeng was in love with Li Chengyin? Was that her name?
  3. she isn't even 30 years old!! you make her sound like she is 80... lol
  4. hi erafera1!

      thank you!! 

       

       

  5. thank you @Erafera1 why do they delete the videos? I do hope this gets picked up by someone to translate on youtube. I doubt viki or netflix will pick this up, but I did request it on both viki & netflix as a title.
  6. I rarely ship actors together but these two I just do!! However, I think she has a boyfriend - I thought I heard CXX state her BF was in the audience in one of those clips over the last few pages.
  7. no, I do not find this similar at all to the king's woman. Li'er in TKW was a masochist - she never forgot memories yet she still ran back to the king, despite his cruel treatment of her. Li Chengyin is nothing like the Emperor in TKW and Xiaofeng is nothing like Li'er. I must be the only one who loathed A'du for being a hypocritical sanctimonious character, who left Xiaofeng in the lurch at the end when she went off on her own revenge tangent. If A'du hadn't of went on a suicide mission, Xiaofeng might not have killed herself - but she did and XF was all alone. There was a scene where XF was doubting her actions on leaving LCY. I wish she had continued to doubt it
  8. YES, a thousand times YES. I never thought LCY was a monster. I could understand both his POV and XF's POV - I got why she didn't tell him that he was her true love, GXW - afterall, she just got her memories back and it must have felt like it just happened. I never thought he was a monster for killing GJ - GJ was the one who continued to lie to XF, manipulating her, trying to color her eyes towards LCY without telling how deep his own involvement was. A'Du was another one that I disliked at the end - oh great - they cry over GJ, but I felt his betrayal was worse that LCY - after all, GJ GREW up with XF and he was her teacher. He let her go to LCY, allowed for her to be used. I read some folks saying oh, well GJ had remorse over his part - of course he did! He remembered. LCY didn't have anything to be remorseful for as he has no idea what happened. I cannot fault LCY - he has no idea what he did, and he is jealous and confused. No one will tell him, not even Pei. When he gets his memories back, it comes back in a flood too - with all the raw passions as if it happened yesterday. Those two didn't stand a chance.
  9. Didn't he ask her to sing a song & that is why she sang it in the boat? She stated it was the only one she knew. I am a bit disappointed in the quality of the extra scenes. I wish they would have done a short (20-30 episode) modern series with them. Oh well.
  10. @ayang23 correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that was the only song she knew? Didn't she sing this to Li Chengyin as well during the course of this series?
  11. omg that makes me SO happy!! I would have liked to have a full blown sequel, but this is good
  12. I would love to see a sequel as they still are fated to be in each other's lives. perhaps that third life could be modern times and they fall in love all over again, but this time, with a HE.
  13. @jayyepeee Uh that wasn't me complaining about how they addressed each other You might want to tag the proper person who was asking about the generational older gap.
  14. I don't think 6 years is that much older. They aren't a generation apart, but within the same age bracket....
  15. @vtxyplease tag me as well!! thank you so much for taking the time to break down the differences. The more I think about this series, the more it goes into my biggest disappointment pile - but with the best male performance from Austin Lin
  16. OMG I love this drama so much!! Even if it has a sad ending, everything so far is so beautiful (I am only on epi 34 as I am watching on viki) I don't understand why the hate with LCY - this isn't a romcom - it is about politics and war, and quite frankly, the fact that he fell in love with the woman he was arranged to be married to is surprising! LCY is great as the crown prince - he is both so very young (romance) and wise (politics) at the same time. I think the pairing of XF with him is just beautiful and I was reading some earlier comments about real life ages and how she is too old for him. Oh come on. Seriously. it's not like they are 20 years apart in age and in fact, many kings married slightly older women. In this drama, however, the characters seem to be around the same age and it works. the actress that plays XF is stunning. She is so beautiful & when paired next to LCY, they are a handsome couple. If they are redoing the ending, I hope it is a good one for the 2 of them. There are misunderstandings, but XF has to realize the Danchi tribe wasn't all cuddly kittens. She has to know that they were just as ruthless and perhaps she can forgive LCY for his deeds, which he was tricked into by his brother. I love everything about this and yeah, I guess a love triangle has to be tossed in there. I do like GJ a lot, but he needs to look elsewhere. but he isn't dead - it's LCY. just repackaged.
  17. yeah, this was not a happy ending. If they followed the novel, it would have been a happy ending. As it is, if Chen Yu is alive (which I am thinking NOT), how can they live with themselves, knowing that they were the cause of so many deaths?
  18. I am leaning towards this theory as well. I think she is now trying to cope with all of the trauma. There is no way she can be a fem-version of LRK, as she has no martial arts and no shifu to teach her. She has always been a storyteller and I think she is just making stuff up in her head. I actually am fine with this ending, as she brought death to all of her friends. It is more fitting with a traditional Chinese drama ending. I wish the script writers had followed the novel & you can have a lot of bloody scenes without killing everyone (Fu Yao did it quite well with all of their blood spitting). People would have been much more happy about the series. Ahhh well. I think this might get the worst drama with the best acting performance of the year award for me.
  19. Its not as if Bin Bin didn't have a lot of face time during the series - it was that he was given a horrible story arc in the 2nd half. I was glad to have an exciting antagonist with Austin Lin's performance as DFS, so I am not complaining about that at all. In fact, when you compare Bin Bin's & Lin's performances together, I was sad to see that Bin Bin fell flat. He is a fine actor - I loved him in 10 miles and also the King's Woman, but this role was not the best script for him. The nice thing about this series - I added a new actor to follow with my CDramas - Austin Lin is an amazing talent.
  20. The books end at this point so I am not sure there is any material for a season 2. Besides, they killed everyone off - so, no one is going to want to associate with BQ and CY anymore - haha I don't really see a need for a second season and after that crapastic ending, I doubt it will happen anyway. yeah, I question how BQ got those martial arts. I think it was her imagination kicking in. She was always a good storyteller, so perhaps this is her way of coping. They messed up the novel's ending badly, so I can imagine that they went this route as well - to keep people guessing, just like in Fu Yao.
  21. whew i am glad i am not the only one disappointed by this hot mess. i wish the script writers would have stayed true to the novel So, I have been reading some theories and I will wait until I watch epi 51 before weighting in on what I think of the ending
