  1. This drama has been recommended by a friend and I'll be watching it soon, look forward to it, it sounds fun, and maybe a bit more unusual!
  2. @ck1Oz you are right, when you have certain expectations, or lack thereof, a tragic end is easier to bear! (though I did not mean Nirvana in Fire, but Royal Nirvana, -He li Hua Ting- with Luo Jin and Li Yi Tong - brilliant and highly artistic, but so depressing...) I was new to c-drama, so didn't know.. it was only the second drama I watched (first was Princess Wey Young, discovered on Netflix). I'm ashamedly very fond of a HE!
  3. Thanks @hello210, I agree with you on the characterisation of the young Ou. I'll see if I can find the name of the drama (in Chinese) that keeps appearing on YouTube, though you may be absolutely right, could be some sort of compilation. @ck1Oz if you think this is pain.... You have not seen Royal Nirvana! edited to add, I don't know if there is more than one translation of the subtitles, but watching ep 44 with subs I was very disappointed in the translation. The beautiful scene between the two of them in prison where she says she is just grateful to have
  4. Thank you so much @hello210. I love this drama, but I'm not so keen on Ou Yanxing, especially at the end. Yes, having such a toxic family is pretty tough, but he seemed to have lost any decision making ability, just wondering around jn shock I suppose? Or am I reading this wrong? He kind of stumbles from revelation to revelation without knowing what he should do next re: his family, that he had been avoiding for a long time. I kinda of forgot why he came back.. I think they could have developed his character a bit more, other than being a help to Shi Yi, and making our ML jealous.
  5. Have seen the last 3 eps now, but raw. Coul anyone explain what was meant by the pebble that Shi yi, from prison, gave Erjie, and then they worked out what she meant? It was on the candle holder... Didn't understand that bit at all... Many thanks in advance.
  6. I've seen ep 45 raw, know how it all ends, and still, I completely agree, those episodes were really sad and hard to watch. @hello210 brilliant explanation, thanks (and I've actually seen the eps!)
  7. Yes, I'm going to watch General and I after this, as I really like the newly discovered (for me) Wallace Cheung, though from the trailers I didn't warm to his drama partner Angelababy, maybe it'll be fine in the end (on youtube there's a whole 5 min trailer compilation of them kissing...rather interesting, lol) Have not heard of My Sunshine, will check it out. I have loved this drama, so nice to see, for a change, not only a happy ending, but also a really lovely relationship, almost as equals given the historical settings, developing. I think they did that really well. I also rea
  8. so interesting, thank you @ck1Oz, much appreciated Brilliant explanation, thank you @jacquelinetan In the first 20 ep or so, I really liked Master Lin, and I myself wondered if he had been a better match for Shiyi. He also seemed gentle, caring, upright, outside of, and uninterested in, intrigues, with an interest in embroidery like Shiyi etc. A better alternative to those families and their shenanigans, which Shiyi wanted to escape from anyway. However....later on, though he does help her, he seemed a bit inconsequential, indecisive, and not that astute either, so I went off h
  9. @kyar7jizhenll I'm adding my thanks for the explanations, brilliant, and didn't really get any of it, so many thanks. I'm on ep37 with the translations, though I have watched ahead as I have no discipline, and I just wanted to see how the story unfolded. I can quite believe @ck1Ozthat it must have been so difficult to navigate all the family relationships... monogamy is worth it for that alone! I too have absolutely loved Wallace Cheung and Seven Tan, and on youtube lots of stuff with him in it pops up too, maybe I'll give it a go, though I think this drama really, re
  10. have seen last ep raw.... well... I LOVE a happy ending! maybe there could have been a bit more kissing lol!
  11. I've been watching and re-watching all the trailers, I don't know about anyone else, but I'm soooo looking forward to tomorrow for the new eps, though I know I won't be watching right away. Still... a few trailers are always let out, can't wait!
  12. @ck1Ozhow amazing that you do subs. Would you mind just briefly telling us how it works? Do they not pay you? I always wondered...
  13. @minglanfan2 and @Hvnlyangel I so agree... I love these dramas, but wow, it was so tough for women. There can't be many who willingly share their partners, and in fact it really is a recipe for disaster all around (except, possibly, for the man of the house, and even then... No harmony! ). It's really hard to even concieve what horrendous life they must have had. That's why I'm so enjoying this drama, unrealistic I suppose, but more towards a modern point of view, the great love and respect of two people. @SC2019 many thanks for the translation, much appreciated.
