I watch some cut scene in ig and I cry already. Whyyyyyyy....it's not bl drama! I'm disappointed :angry:

If they don't have bl happy ending then I don't bother waiting for eng sub. 

Spoiler

I know right but I watched the drama for the sake of novel. If only they followed the novel path I could have been so much happier and I could have even embraced the fact that YunXiu get married to LinXuan but no I can't do that because this freaking drama literally changes the personality of YunXiu and literally make him say as if he has been in love with her for ages then why did they show FengJing shown as potential like srsly why give us so much hope if they weren't going to follow that up at all.

WHAT!? NOOOO! I thought they weren't going to go the BG route. Okay, well damn, wtf. 

I would be angry if i was an author and some director/producer rewrote/reimagined my ending. Honestly what's the point of turning something into a drama if we just end up being censored? 

Spoiler

I don't who did this but so far as much as I knew before the episode came in the author said that Revive of YunXiu happened because his aim was to fall for FengJing, be with him and to love him and FengJing also to be  in love with YunXiu. If this didn't happen, then there was no point of revive of superstar. But I don't get it why did it end up like that at all. I know right even I feel like that, but more importantly, what I am more curious is that why didn't they leave it in a ambiguous ending rather than giving the whole fans hopes and crushing it like that, why not just give them a ambiguous ending with which fans could have been more happier about it tbh.

Well that ending was disappointing :/

I'm still interested in the novel, Can someone please give a summary of how Feng Jing and Du Fay's (Yun xie) relationship became romantic? I know that Du Fay was gay from the beginning, but I don't understand why his friend (lover?) tried to get rid of him. How did Feng Jing and Du Fay deal with the whole ESE drama?

  Reveal hidden contents

also why did Lin Xiuan die?

Spoiler

As far as my understanding is Xie Yi didn't really tried to kill Du Fei, what he did was that when Du Fei was nominated for one of his role in the year end ceremony, he didn't win. He was disappointed about it, but he was trying to pull himself together, and he was in the bathroom, he had heard XieYi talk to someone about how Du fei is gay and didn't deserved this award at all. Du fei felt betrayed by the person he had loved and the person he had given up his own role to Xie Yi through which he got so famous. And that's what he was betrayed by the love and while he was returning home, his car crashes with another car that was already in the accident place. Does that make sense? 

Well FengJing's and YunXiu's to be honest, their spark own start coming out after YunXiu had gone through lik 1 break up with this another guy 2 times. And he realises his own feelings for FengJing in a shuttle way that I probably will take me a while to explain. But I will put up and link once it is up somewhere. Well with the ESE, lets just say our Foxy gets his act together and blackmails LiRui to settle things up with an non-existent sex tape of theirs. 

LinXuan was suppose to die during child birth, the pregnancy was too risky for her but she really wanted this baby even though she knew that she could die at the end. But also the fact she sort of knew that this baby could bring happiness between YunXiu and FengJing even though, they weren't exactly together but she knew YunXiu was already in love with Fengjing and vice verse unlike those 2.

One thing that I don't get it, the ex bf didn't give enough influence in this drama. Anyone know what the author wrote in the novel?

Spoiler

Because he wasn't exactly a major person tbh, like he was just an actor and even with revenge YunXiu can't exactly kill him that's why the revive of superstar is about not killing each other but more about showing in front of his ex lover that YunXiu was happy and have won over his popularity as an actor and for once he wasn't scared to show the world whom he was in love with, who also felt the same for him.

To be honest there are like so many people who weren't in their right character in the drama. LiuYi wasn't a big character at all. She was just one of the actor. Instead of her drama manager, the one who managed LiuYi completely was his brother LiuZhang, who is described sort of like a gangster in the novel with more manly looks and everything not as geeky like in the drama. 

P.s. there are many roles that are kind of solved around in the drama and many of them are also missing. Hope this helps?

This type of story manipulation shouldn't be surprising for any new BL novel to drama adaptations....mainland china is going on a censorship rampage~~~

Spoiler

I know right, I  feel the same. Even though, FengJing ( in this case HaiQiao) did confirm that FengJing was in love with YunXiu,  his eyes says it all.  That he was hurt but it was fine, as he stood there for the person he have come to love so much more. (I cried so badly at this scene I swear) 

But don't worry, the next bl that is coming out , "A round trip to love" seem to have fair share of all those bl stuffs. Though the story itself sounds really angsty sort. 

 

 

I hope I managed to answer most of the questions in here. I don't know about other characters but I love FengJing a lot. Like srsly a lot, please loving him okay guys. Thank you..

So...is there going to be a second season?? I might forgive the sheer insult of that ending if there's a second season to put it right! Seriously, Feng Jing is amazing. I don't know what it is about him, but I haven't felt this strongly about a character in a long time, and I don't even understand a word he's saying! I would gladly give several organs and all my savings for subs. Anyone aware if there's been any more progress on that front?

Spoiler

I agree with the other comments - I understand that the law has made it nigh on impossible to be truthful to the original story but they definitely could have resolved it better - it really wouldn't have been that hard to just end it with the two of them continuing to live together in their "brotherly" fashion without anyone of that wedding nonsense or bits that made it seem definite that he'd chosen you know who, e.g. that really rather upsetting moment where Feng Jing holds the cameras back so Yun Xiu can go after her (that part broke my heart!). And did we never get that scene where Yun Xiu is sitting down looking dejected and Feng Jing walks down a corridor towards him, extends his hand then pulls him up? Or did I just miss it?!

Yun Xiu made me so mad by the end that I was back on the Feng Jing/LiRui ship - there were flashbacks! He shed a tear!

@rexpon Even though I've watched the previews for the new drama... I have a bad feeling that is going to be heavily edited and re-written as well...

If there is a second season....they would need to kill off the she devil because isn't divorce taboo in Chinese media?

The synopsis (brief description) of this drama states he has a fake relationship with that silly actress character (fake girlfriend), fake marriage (so he only married her to protect her) and lover (Feng Jian???). I don't know if this is true or not but I heard that his "wife" died in the novel. But since she is still alive I can't possibly answer the question, but I don't blame the actress, she was never a bad guy and always was on the side of her dead friend. But I don't like the implication, and believe if there is a season 2 they probably wouldn't lean toward BL with so many restrictions.

Yeah, I got confused while reading the synopsis as well. I'm not sure if it's the actual DRAMA synopsis...or one taken from the book. It sounds more like the book one? :blink:

Feng Jian was incredible. Half the time I didn't know whether to laugh or cry at his antics. For me, he was the best thing about Revive. I get your meaning that even without subs he had the greatest impact on my reactions to the storyline. If they have a second season where would they go with it. It is clear that there was more going on between Feng Jian and Yun Xie (Du Fei) ***not sure of spelling*** but he was scripted in a marriage with his childhood friend so how would that work out as far as a BL storyline goes.

I'm more inclined to believe it's from the book because it doesn't quite seem to fit the drama.

@rexpon thank you sooo much for your info!

So, after the new rule, it becomes another BG. I feel betrayed, we are treated as click bait. The ending seems weird though. Is she even know that he is Du Fei?

@node Hey, thank you for sharing those vids. I learned about this drama from your awesome vids, and was surprisingly intrigued, although I have never seen/read a BL story before. The ending was very heartwrenching. My heart goes out to Feng Jing. :( I'm going to think of this as the first part, where the hero makes this misstep before ending up with his true love. Can't read or speak Chinese, so the dialogue won't get in the way. :lol:

To all other forum members, any hopes of getting an English translation of this novel? I'd love to read that happily ever after.

So.. from what i understand until now... Yun Xiu did marry Lin Xuan not because of love but to help her. Its not that different than the novel. Later in season 2 (I hope) as in the novel,  Lin Xuan died. Yun Xiu and Feng Jing still living together as brothers (because the banned thing in china that no bl allowed). I just need that kind of ending. I don't want any of them get marry with any woman !

@possumbaby As far as I know, apparently, it is 99% sure that there will be season 2 since the script is still in writing.  I know right, FengJing is like the best character out of the whole drama, I fell for the moment I read about him tbh the awesome acting skill of Haiqiao doesn't help at all. It doesn't help that this is the first time I actually liked a character this much, to the point it hurts just to see him getting hurt.  He just did such a fabulous job on it. Now cause of it I just can't forget about FengJing at all. Literally obsessed with that character tbh. 

For subs I got no clues but with that ending I don't even feel like working hard for it tbh. It doesn't help the fact the directors sees FengJing as a doormat, calling him a 3rd person. Pfft.

@IMOmusings I don't think, getting a divorce is as taboo as getting pregnant before marriage? Yes. LinXuan needs to die, even though in the novel I had no problem with her character but in the drama cause of the ending I can't even stand to look that face anymore.

@IMOmusings Ya tbh the synopsis doesn't exactly sound right for me either. And even if it was for the novel I don't exactly think it alines with the novel because in the book LiuYi have literally like 3% role unlike the drama, and tbh YunXiu doesn't even get married with LinXuan, he and FengJing only take care of her. He never legibly got together with her.

Spoiler

@jijiyoyoleoAs to my understanding , it is not the fact that Yun Xiu got married with LinXuan that pissed me off. The thing that is off is YunXiu's personality. He wasn't suppose to be in love with her and during the ending YunXiu gives this long speech about how he loves her that is whay exactly pissed me. Like it is understandable that if YunXiu wants to protect him cause she was pregnant but he wasn't suppose say those things at all and their wedding thing could have been private damn it.

@darkice7_12 I know right especially FengJing's face. For once I cried watching a drama for the first time. hahaha tbh to what I know and what happened yesterday and stuffs, the directors are so rude that they think FengJing as if he can used and thrown so easily by YunXiu, calling him a 3rd  person. Like srsly he is not even the 3rd person, that 3rd person is LinXuan not him. He was the one who was to be married with. The only good outcome that came was that YunXuan was born. Although, I don't have any better hopes to get their relationship sorted in season 2 tbh.

Regarding the novel, I have put up a request for consideration with the bl translation blog but Idk if it will ever be picked up or not. Lets just hope for the best though. 

@node If u don't mind, do you mind like translating like those dialogues & stuffs from the fanvid and put like a CC subs on them? Or perhaps we can work together because I like it when they got subs & it becomes more understandable for everyone.

@lemsaine Do you understand chinese? Cause what I know of it, YunXiu was saying that how he was in love with her and blah blah blah.... that is exactly why I hate the ending because if he married her out of like friendship etc then I could have been fine with it. Like srsly I don't even have problem with it but I know how much LinXuan means to YunXiu in the novel as well the care he has for her is like of a little sister he never had. But in the drama with all idiotic stuffs being said. I just got so angry. My FengJing's heart was broken all over again.  tbh  I hate YunXiu so much atm I don't even care about him. Okay, tbh I only care about FengJing.

@rexpon No, I don't know chinese at all.. currently i translate ep 3, 4 into my own language with google translate and still working on ep 5. So I know nothing about what they were saying in ep 16. Thank you so much for telling me. If that so.. i'm so dissapointed :angry:. Feng Jing have done soooo much for him.. Tbh i'm so mad at Yun Xiu when Feng Jing help him blocked the reporter, Yun Xiu doesn't even bother to look back at him before he left. My poor Feng Jing :tears:. Why did he have to go through all of that with Li Rui and Yun Xiu. He deserve so much better... I got so frustrated right now. I need season 2 where Lin Xuan died! With much better ending for Feng Jing.  If Feng Jing have to leave Yun Xiu house because of Lin Xuan. I'm done with it !!

@rexpon Thanks for your suggestion, actually I was trying to add some translation myself but just realize my English wasn't good enough for that so I gave up. I opened up the sub contribution on YouTube for some of the Revive fanvids, anyone are interested in helping with translation, you're welcome to add the English sub for the conversation and lyric.
