  1. @jkfan Wanted to say thank you for translating the extra chapter & do you know if there is an English translation for the entire novel?
  2. If I may interject, I had the impression that they were dressing TN up like a squid. All Pink, billowing body, flowy elongated arms, like a squid’s tentacles, and especially when she’s had alcohol...wraps her whole being around HSY. lol. That TN is adorable. Not that I’m in agreement with the stylist choice; that horrible white coat that someone mentioned prior...ugh. No no no. Please give the lady a proper wardrobe that befits her character better! However, YangZi is making up for the wardrobe malfunction by bringing out such a delightful character. When I went back to re-read the novel, now I can only visualize YZ as TN and LX as HSY. So they’ve succeeded (in my viewpoint) as capturing their characters’ essence
  3. Thanks for doing more research. So CTF is considered an E-sport, just not like the mainstream ones we usually see. I wasn’t aware that hacking was a sport. (Learning new things daily. lol.) Okay. Well, thank you...You’re helping my mind to accept what they’ve done in the drama compared to the novel. And I have to agree with you regarding TN’s character development and her relationship with Gun. To make it more realistic, you’re right, there needs to be more substance as to why Gun (who’s insanely brilliant) falls for scholarly cute pinky TN. It would be nice to see them have something in common, but then I feel something is missing. Rhetorically asking, why does she have to ‘aid’ his career? What I loved about the novel, was that TN was a superstar in her own career - she had a huge following! She wasn’t no little small fry. I felt that she and Gun were equals in their own careers, but came together to compliment each other. They understood each other, despite being opposites. However, I am looking forward to how they’ll draw out their story. And now I’ll have a more open mind.
  4. When watching the first episode raw, I was so confused since I was expecting them to do competitive gaming/ESports, not doing IT cyber security. For me, who loved the novels as they were, having this integral part be changed, is hugely disappointing. Attacking opponents’ servers with a virus? Blahh. How boring! Don’t get me wrong; I love MBFB’s writings, but I think she did wrong in changing the gaming aspect to cyber security, even if it was to get the drama aired as @skibbies mentioned. With watching this more carefully, you can see how they tried to cover over the areas where they took out the filmed areas of esports, ie. with dubbing in words about CTF, but then in some scenes, they show Gun’s computer with a game being played (at the cafe), or when TN got Gun’s WeChat, it clearly says “E-Sports”, nothing about Cyber Security. Anyways, sorry to sound like a whiny kid who’s gotten an ugly sweater as a gift and not the super cool Nike shoes they always wanted. I’ll stop ranting! In any case, the leads are adorable together.
  5. To those who understand Chinese & have read the books, can you tell is the script sticking to the novels in how Gun/Solo/Appledog broke apart? In episode 2, I saw the flashback with Gun & them, but couldn’t understand what exactly they were arguing about. And for those (like me) who are patiently dying for subs: Viki’s subs are at 72% now!
  6. Just watched the first episode raw. Loving it so much that I want episode 2...now! lol @chloevstkawaii In the link below, this blogger explains that MBFB has made more than one script, and that the character of Hu Yi Tian is a special guest in Go Go Squid. However, this article was written in March 2018, so whether this has changed since then will remain for us to see. Guess we can kind of keep our hopes up. lol. https://hui3r.wordpress.com/2018/03/19/go-go-squid-cast-announcement-for-dt-solo-and-xiao-mi/#more-23781
  7. Super excited! After months of hearing about it, the fact that only 2 days are left, the anticipation has been built to the max! And the broadcaster knows it, the last 2-3 days they’ve been slowly leaking out trailers, day by day. Talk about killing us slowly. As @Desert Panda mentioned what they loved about the novel: that was my favorite aspect too. Unfortunately, as we’ve not seen any spoilers about her cosplaying, I’m not sure that it will be in the drama. (Unless I’ve totally missed it.?) But if not, I really hope they give her a profession that puts her on the same level as the novel’s character. Otherwise, she’ll just seem like a crazy fan-girl.
  8. This has been my problem since it first ended airing. After watching it raw, I’ve become numb from the frustration of waiting for the subs. Though I am doing my best to watch other stuff in the meantime. Will have to binge watch again the entire thing after it’s complete. @Table122000 re: what you said, “We finally get to see Zhou Shi being confident” and “how much Wei Qing has changed.“ This is why I love this story so much. We see their growth and transition of indifference, disgust, irritation, anger, etc to friends/romantic interest with dependence, trust, faith and a growing awareness of each other’s strengths, abilities and attraction. It never gets old. Apologizes if my words are a bit jumbled...it’s 1 am and my eyes seem to want to do something other than stare at my computer screen.
  9. Oh seriously?! How did I miss that?! lol. Thanks for sharing!! And Sorry to @vietgurl4ever206 No offense to you; I was not aware of ep 24 trailer out. However, I am with the rest of these peeps; still rooting for a HEA! Jiyao!!!! On the topic as you mentioned; I too wanted to know...Would someone please clarify why SW was at that company where ED confronted him in the first episode? Thanks in advance.
  10. Hmmm. Not recalling this scene. Are you sure you have the right series? It’s only up to episode 16 on maplestage. Right? He went from a dull, expressionless man to a wily pursuer. Love it! In reading the novel, I love how he corners her into doing what he wants. Hahaha. Loving the cute antics of the leads. She’s such a cutie pie, how could he NOT fall for her?! lol. Waiting for eng subs will be hard since I’m liking it so much.
  11. I need a “hubba hubba” reaction emoji to express my thoughts. HAHAHAH!
  12. Oh see...I had no idea that happened! Interesting. Thanks for sharing!!
  13. Yeah I noticed that as well. But its uploaded at PP’s with English subs now. Ms Xue seems to be an opportunist, (though I’m not sure if the actress is fully capable of bringing out the character’s traits. Like the actress isn’t as seductive as she’s supposed to be...maybe too nice.) I don’t know. It just comes across as awkward pawning over WQ. Maybe the character is supposed to entice WQ to sell the gallery? WQ’s Mom is cray cray. Blinded by her love for her husband and hatred for her son are twisted. A rational person would go crazy trying to explain things to someone who doesn’t respond to logic. ZS gives us such nice comic relief. I love the balance between serious dramatic moments and laughter to lighten the mood, without being too over the top.
  14. Yes! Throughly enjoyed for sure. This drama pulled me out of lerk mode and now into checking soompi daily. LOL. I know!! It’s so sweet!! Can’t wait to squee with ya all. @raziela I really love what you said about XF and FF. After the main leads, that couple is my next favorite. XF’s character gets more animated around FF; he comes out of his shell with her, and he pulls out the nurturing side of FF’s. It’s so adorable seeing them two take care of each other. Like when she found him and wrapped the fur around him, but then he tried putting some of it on her since she was barely wearing anything. lol. So sweet! Slimy uncle... Can’t wait for his scenes to be over already! Heh. Unfortunately FF doesn’t know yet how creepy he is. Yet, did ZX ever tell FF that he came onto her at that party? I don’t recall. That BBQ scene is hilarious! XF asking for more meat, omgoodness...I loved it. Either the whole restaurant is PP or that’s ZX’s favorite BBQ place cuz at one point she even brings WQ there. lol. And mean girl is stinky, extreme stinkiness. The actress is doing a great job of being an amazingly annoying mean girl. lol.
