[Mainland Chinese Drama 2017-2018] Nirvana in Fire: The Wind Blows in Changlin 琅琊榜之凤起长林

Recommended Posts

This beautifully made tribute to the one and only Prince of Changlin, 萧庭生 Xiao Tingsheng - loyal subject, unwavering patriot, wise counsellor, faithful student, filial son, exemplary father, loving brother, ... he was all this and more. Miss him.... :tears:

The following is a segment of an article dated 13 Jun 2019 which features a recent interview with NiF and NiF2 producer Hou Hongliang:

 

不过,侯鸿亮也坦言,对于真实感的坚持有可能在现实中碰壁,比如《琅琊榜》,电视台因担心观众会入戏太慢而弃剧,在审片时将前5集剪掉了3集,结果,《琅琊榜》播出时,有许多声音反映开篇看不懂。对此侯鸿亮说,“不能舍弃对氛围的营造。我们经常说观众耐心不够,但有时候这是一种审美能力,不能降低了审美去迎合观众,而是要引导观众去具备这个审美能力。

However, Hou Hongliang also admitted that the persistence to maintain a sense of realism may hit a wall in reality. Take for example Nirvana in Fire. Due to concerns by the broadcasting station that audiences would abandon the drama if the pacing was too slow, 3 out of the first 5 episodes were cut during the drama review. As a result, when Nirvana in Fire was broadcast, they received a lot of feedback that [the audience] could not understand the opening of the drama. To this, Hou Hongliang said, "We cannot sacrifice the creation of the atmosphere. We often say that the audience is not patient enough, but sometimes this is a kind of aesthetic sense. Aesthetics should not be sacrificed to cater to the audience, but rather [we] should guide the audience to cultivate aesthetic appreciation."

 

A cut of 3 whole episodes! I am then reminded of reports that the Korean broadcast of NiF2 supposedly had additional scenes that were not shown in the China broadcast. Which once again has me wondering if we will ever have the chance to see all these additional footage. Sigh.
