  1. Very impressive. They must have spent a lot of money on filming those - all those extras, costumes, equipment ... such a waste that so much of them were edited out. Really beautiful shots. Thanks for sharing.
  2. @rosierosie Linger’s Father once told FX that she is crazy. It will be interesting to see what her backstory is. If she is not related to the Emperor by blood, then how did she become the Royal Princess? FX is in a difficult position - he should get rid of her for his own safety, but she is also Linger’s Mother. Will Linger forgive him and still want to marry him if he harms her Mother?
  3. Episode 16 is so hard to watch. Just when So so hard to watch, I’m paused at Minister Li’s face when he appeared. Think I’m going to wait until this whole incident is over and continue watching from there. Let me know when ... those of you who are watching
  4. I’m following this drama with great interest - likeable actor and actress (not familiar with this actress, but OK so far), beautiful sets and costumes, meaningful dialogue .... but the incredulous plot twists sometimes make me roll my eyes. I mean, OK, I am impressed that the CP expected I know this drama is supposed to be about the CP’s trials and tribulations on his journey to ascend to the throne. I haven’t read the book, but I heard that it is a tragic ending. So will the CP finally inherit the throne? Or will he be deposed in favour of his scheming Brother? Who will he have to sacrifice along the way? Anyway, let’s embark on this journey with the CP together, try not to cry too much along the way. Ha!
  5. Seeing that no one replied to your question, I’ll try explaining it here. He was referring to himself, ie. Dong Hua’s own mortal realm trial. Because he did not properly complete it - he died of a broken heart well before he was supposed to have lived out his life to a ripe old age - he had to suffer a ‘penalty’ for it. The penalty differs according to the diety’s seniority or cultivation, so instead of ‘dying’ which will happen to most lower level dieties, Dong Hua just lost some of his ‘powers’. Hope that helped. Cheers!
  6. No, on Kun Lun Shan, only MY knew BQ’s actual identity. YH was only a lotus flower at that time, so he only had vague memories of Si Yin. enjoy watching!
  7. @Cammy At Shisan’s transformation event ... N : Mother, today we can really meet this Shisan fairy that you often speak of? L : Yes, today is the day that Shisan will transform/evolve. ..... Y : Nianer, did you miss me? N : Yes, I did but Mother would not allow me to go to Peach Forest to look for you. Y : Why? L : You still have the cheek to ask? At the last visit, you secretly gave her wine, and she slept for 20 days straight. How can you do this as an elder (of Nianer)? Y : How can children of Peach Forest not learn how to drink wine? Isn’t that right, Nianer? Wasn’t the wine of Peach Forest delicious? This is is a very interesting conversation for those who also watched Ten Miles Peach Blossom. BQ also gave Ah Li peach blossom wine and he also slept for days, resulting in YH rebuking BQ for it.
  8. here you go ... N : Mother. Mother L Nianer what’s wrong? N : I’ve looked inside and outside but could not find Father. L : Didn’t I already tell you? Your Father went to a faraway place and can only return after some time. H : This is the child of the owner of this place? L : Yes, naturally. N : Who is this person? Why are you staying in my Father’s Palace? Aunty Hua Liao said that except for my Mother, all other women who try to get close to my Father are bad women. Are you a bad person? H : Of course not. I am the servant in charge of this place. My name is Hua Yan. I came from the lower realms. I am the direct disciple of Bao Shuo Zhu of the Shi Fang Shan Bai Yun cave. L : Bai Shuo Zhu, Zhu Zi Zai’s disciple? H Uuuummmm? You know my master? L : You are certainly fated with this Fu Yun Palace. Please continue to tend to this place well. If there is anything you need, just go to the far North Cong Ji Yuan to look for me. My name is Ling Xi. H : Alright. Since you also know my name and where I live now, you can also come to look for me here. L : Your personality in this life has become more cheerful. H : What? L : Nothing. I shall leave now. Nianer, let’s go. I’ll carry you. Good girl.
  9. I was amazed by this actress - the short buzz cut/shaved head may not suit all people but she looks gorgeous in it. Very brave of her to take on this role and this look. Agree with you that the actresses are good in their roles, although I am not familiar with them, except maybe for Wen Ran - can’t remember which drama I have seen her in before. Really? The drama ended nicely at Ep. 48. Unless another incident occurs in Chang An? and our heroes are called back to investigate it?
  10. That is not a smirk. He was born with a cleft lip and after corrective surgery, his upper lip is uneven so the left side is higher, resulting in what seems like a smirk. There’s a sad backstory about how his elder Brother sacrificed himself to try and get a position in Chang An for Captain Cui. So you will see as the drama progresses, how hard Captain Cui tries to achieve that goal to live up to what his elder Brother has done for him. Like you, I also became interested in the poems recited in the drama. What a way to get people interested in Chinese literature again!
  11. In case anyone is wondering, it’s a happy ending. Both XYQ and SJR survived the big battle with Moon Sect and made it out alive at the end, and lived happily ever after. Sadly though, Overall, a well-made drama with well-developed side characters. Nice OSTs, too.
  12. He was ok, not particularly stretched in terms of acting difficulty. I thought it was interesting that they introduced an African person in this drama, considering the fact that Africa is so far away and the two continents would unlikely have known about each other then. But still, it is plausible that he was bought as a slave by some rich person , who somehow brought him to China, or was transferred among a few masters along the way, then ending up in China. I liked how they synchronised the dubbed Mandarin speech to his English speech - it was so obvious he was speaking English, but his sentences all ended on the dot. They are really attentive details - very high quality production.
  13. Watermelon is so adorable, so cute! All the kids were well chosen for their roles - they acted so well, and look quite like their adult versions, too.
  14. Like you, I also had some criticism of the fight scenes which I commented on in an earlier post but now that I am at Ep. 15, I see that there are now many more which were done quite well. For example, as mentioned by @bluehibiscus, the fight scene between Ah Jing and XYQ when they met again after three years - beautifully shot, the colours, the flying sequences, the rain, etc ... Many squeal worthy scenes between our leads, as mentioned by @Yui. above - the period when Ah Jing was blinded by poison, and was looked after by a mute doctor, who unknown to her, was actually XYJ. So, I would recommend you press on past Ep. 10, which is a turning point for Ah Jing, when her shifu and Qing Lan are killed by Bai Lian Sect in Sand Valley. She starts to practise the Blood Rose sword and can Attack (instead of just defending herself which her shifu only taught her previously).
  15. Watched up to Ep. 8. Nice scenery. Gorgeous colours - white, red, in a green bamboo forest. Very prettily shot. Likeable characters - Qing Yu and Xiao Tai are so cute. Hope they have a happy ending. Fight scenes can be better - poor editing in some sequences. But I love the way Xiao Yi Qing’s sword flies around like a boomerang haha. Overall, this drama has caught my interest. Will continue watching it. Hope to have more viewers so we can share our thoughts.
  16. Book ending summary : It’s a simple, happy ending. Don’t understand why they had to complicate the drama by killing people left and right. Too bloody for my liking.
  17. I’ve not watched the latest episodes so I don’t know if it was explained further but what I’ve figured out so far is ... I thought this was supposed to be a light hearted romcom but has now evolved into a bloody fight for the throne drama with people dying left and right ... sigh ...
  18. I also love this character. He’s so funny. I wonder if his character was supposed to be written as comedic, or the actor made it so. Here’s another scene of him which I found hilarious.
