In the novel, did YLK really went to sleep around that much. Even with his sister-in-law and also impregnated her. Did he do that because he did likes her too or just to get at Qin Sang ? 

 

I also dont know his motive. but YLK only loves Qin Sang in the novel . 

Here is the excerpt / glimpse from the novel and the translations, all credit goes to translator 12  from the Meraki Translations.   the translations itself only up to chapter 23 and still ongoing :):)

 

It is revealed that YLK slept with second sis in law from his conversation with Min Hong Yu :) 

 

 

Yi Liankai chuckled derisively before taking the cigarette from between his lips and flicking it into the crystal ashtray, saying, ‘You were the one who offered to work for me in the first place; I never forced you. You blame me for being ruthless and forcing Yi Lianshen’s wife to die^, damned if I know why. You’ve been fudging the truth about your past dealings with Yi Lianshen so I’ve played dumb as well. Are you seriously finding fault with17 me because of his wife?"

 

Min Hongyu took a deep breath then but her voice softened slightly as she said, ‘I used to think he had no conscience, but who would have thought you’re even more ruthless than he is? That Er Sao of yours was carrying your own flesh and blood. Leaving aside the despicable18 seduction of your own sister-in-law, that was your own child you wouldn’t even spare19…’ Before she could finish speaking, there was a pa sound as Yi Liankai slapped her hard. It had enough force in it to cause a red palm mark to bloom on Min Hongyu’s alabaster cheek, the imprint of his fingers leaving instant weals. She bit the corner of her mouth, but refused to cry and only glared at him.

But in the song -

I could see scene where Pan Jian Chi is the killer of Yan Yun's father and YLK teacher. so Pan Jian Chi is thrown in jail and QS saw Pan Jian Chi shot in the leg, she was crying in the jail  and ran to him,  and YLK is sooo jealous   and force kiss her.

Well there is a quote that says 'there's no love like the first..' so QS will always love PJC eventho he has disappointed her so many times but with YLK she knows now has always loved her, the roller coaster of love triangle.  In the drama, YLK, altho he'd said to QS that he didn't want to know who the guy was that she was going to meet up with when he'd thought about letting her go but I think he'd already suspected it was PJC but I'm wondering y didn't he have PJC killed if he was such a jealous and ruthless guy?

 

As according to the ending theme song, looks like alot of the characters r gonna die, we're almost half way into the drama..maybe I should start go out and buy me a big package of tissues..:cry:

Yeah. lyk can see clearly his wife has love history witH Pjc.

Maybe LYK think PjC can be used to achieve his goals so he didnt kill him ..

 

Yeah. I also saw in preview some characters are dead. But i am wondering if the final ending will be changed by the producer.  Because the video in the youtube has the final scene and it is sad.

What i know of (past) C drama is that sometimes they will film 2 endings. 1 is HE, the other is not. So it depends on what ending they will use. :wacko: I am fine with either HE or sad ending but i hate open ending the most. Is like .....huh what??

Yeah. So true

If We have wasted 50 hours of our live watching show with no ending . It will be infuriating. 

I also dislike ending where the main lead dies. As it is so heartbreaking to watch. 

Hope for siege in fog they make YLK alive at the end

Question!

Could anyone who had read the novel gave me a spoiler about how the novel ended?

How bad was it ended?

Do one/both of them died or they just went on separate ways (and why)? I rarely watch drama with bad ending, so I need to prepare my heart for the tragedy.

What an addictive show! It certainly has its flaws but I'm glued to the screen the whole time and can't wait to see what comes next. Of course it suffers from being an overstuffed turkey at times with one trying to get one's head around the socio-political setting and the myriad of characters in and out of uniform but the human drama has its pull.

 

I"m such a sucker for contract marriages and this one doesn't disappoint but what I really love about this is the Yi family dynamic especially when they sit around the family table with all their individual and collective baggage alternating between trying to be a family or pretending to be a family. Considering how much war talk goes on, I am surprised at how much it is about family -- brothers, wives and marriages etc etc. In that regard It reminds me of 家, 春, 秋 (The Torrents trilogy by Ba Jin).

 

I can't fault the acting on the whole (and all the ridiculously pretty men) but I absolutely love Elvis Han in this. While I wouldn't say he carries the show, he does have a commanding confidence which is amazing considering he was probably 24 or younger when he was filming this. But it's the way he plays out the... I was going to say... duality in his personality... but he is rather more multifaceted than that. Lan Po is a young man who is both the youngest son of a prominent family with the weight of the world on his shoulders as well as a man who is desperately in love with his wife who is only just managing to keep the facade of indifference together. That scene of him at the jeweller's standing behind her with his eyes closed after he's placed the sapphire necklace around her neck as he takes in her scent just encapsulates so magnificently the dynamic of their push and pull. Here depicted is a man starving for true marital intimacy and relishing what little morsel he is able to partake.

 

I also like Jeremy Tsui here. It's a far more meaty role here for him than the one in The Happiness of an Angel. He's definitely very pretty and I'm enjoying his dynamic with both Sun Yi and Elvis Han. So far I don't mind what they're doing with the love triangle and I don't see PJC as an outright villain as yet. He's obviously hanging around to be close to the third young mistress but she's at least making an effort keeping him at bay.

@40somethingahjumma Tbh, those three r the main reasons y i'm continuing with this drama usually I don't like watching political or family dramas so much and from what i'm reading and seeing so far, it's gonna get more sad..normally I would skip dramas like these after reading the synopsis and like u've said, this is pretty addictive and I would be there anticipating the next batch of episodes every week.

I'm so into this drama now. All the relationships slowly surfaced.

 

I'm getting so annoyed by Zhang Xi Kun (2nd bro's uncle). He is so pushy and keep on asked yun xi to kill his own brother. And the tian meng hui's leader liang xing bei, I'm thinking he is the 6th uncle of the yi's family.

 

This drama is getting more and more excited. I'm glad that lan po and QS have cleared up all the misunderstanding and being honest about their love to each other. 

 

I get a bit confused regarding the scene QS requested to take photo with the Cheng's family girls. Her intention really is to get the Mu Rong's family to get married with the Cheng's elderest daughter?Or she wanted the photo to be publish on newspaper to let YLK know that she is safe now? 

 

This is the first time I'm watching Elvis and Sun Yi's drama. Is Elvis a good kisser? Hehe....

Yes. Those are the interesting scene I'm liking it so much. U really have to understand well the stories as it goes as they are deep meaning behind their words.

@Hapiangle Thanks - I  had no idea who those people were. That's a good strategy for letting YLK know that she's alive and safe. 

Was she planning to elope with PJC/LWP as a lover or friend (cutting her relationship with the Yi family)?

TBH, the war talk & what political stuff..i usually FF because i don't understand :o but i really find everyone acting here is good. I like eldest bro & his wife (altho at this point of time is he good or bad) but i assume he's good. It seems Father does listen to his opinions quite seriously. I like their meal time in that big dining room/long table. Always you don't see them eating much or eat to their hearts content. I guess when one is seated there, have to watch their table manners etc. How suffering it can be! QS really look very good in this drama & all her outfits are beautiful, the hairdo too (in real life she's a mother already).

I have binged watched the first 15 episodes these past 3 days. I am so in love with the drama and plot. I really like the relationship between YLK and QS because there love grows stronger through the hardship. I feel like the drama is going to get darker from here because everything has been good so far. The evil uncle is always trying to get 2nd brother to do all the evil stuff like doubting YLK.

I read from novel review this drama is a tragedy and has sad ending. Most likely YLK died in war. The translation is still ongoing up to chapter 23. Not finish yet. =) 

But i really hope in the drama YlK is alive after being shot in the war though.

So, I have watched up to episode 6 subbed, and I'm a bit confused. Who are those extra ladies & kids at the dinner table? They don't speak except that one lady, who isn't sitting with a child next to her.   The father says that only family is allowed at the dinner table, but are these people servants? But if they are servants, why does the father have conversation with that one woman? I thought none of the brothers have any children yet? Who are those people?

Those are the wives of Yi Ji Pei, the father's.

Thank you so much!!

So, Lan Po is the zhi right? All the brothers in the family has very nice zhi. The elder one is Xian Qiao, 2nd one is Yun Xi, 3rd one is Lan Po. 

Yes that's right. And 3 of the basic elements are present in the names as well. In the 2nd brother's zhi name it contains water and air (yun = clouds and Xi=stream) and Yi Lian Kai's name has earth as Po (is a slope/ and contains the character for mud/ earth in his name)! Not sure if the author did that on purpose or not.

I'm thinking the elderest bro Xian Qiao is with element wood, 2nd bro is water and 3rd is earth. Really nice name!!
