I hope the drama shows what ML does to Aunty Kang. Tied and tortured. I am even more eager for the granny's poisoning now. Just to see this nasty piece of crap get what she deserves.

Aunti Kang short biography:

 

Oh gosh what a miserable woman :angry: .. but now that I read her biography, I also have an aunt with similar character as her. Because of her miserable life and failed marriage, she just despises every single one of us who has better life than her, and then spreading bad rumours about us. But she appears like a saint on the outside, like she truly cares about us.

 

Now that I think about it, my aunt is a mixture of GTY's stepmom and Auntie Kang :crazy: (minus the killing part, she is mean, cunning and devious but not a murderer)

TY&QH confrontation at the Qi manor shows that TY as the better partner for ML. QH never had a chance from the get-go. QH & ML never would've make for an interesting pair since it's built on shallowness & idealization. Their scenes together consists of shortlived walks & dry conversation. There's no depth. QH is a pampered dolt. He also proves on multiple occasions that he doesn't understand ML. He's delusional. Even w/ his conversation w/ML at the bridge, hes just pitiful. In no ways QH would been able to defend/protect & care for ML at his side the way TY do. TY just exceeds in everyway.

Yes, I like GTY, and I am defending him. QH irritates me to no end so I'm criticizing him. So? Other people can be biased towards QH and defend QH try to find faults in my favorite character, who I think does nothing wrong, to make QH looks good, I don't agree with it, so I'm defending him.

Oh no! I don't mean you, I mean the person you were talking to before my post, like liniah person or whatever, all their posts paint GTY as some devil, while QH as some angel. That what I mean when I said  that they  have a bias towards GTY. Omg lol sorry for the confusion.

That Auntie Kang is so annoying, why does she bother with Minglan so much when she is not even related to her. I can understand the evil stepmother or evil concubine or evil wife of ex boyfriend or evil half sister, but Auntie Kang is fully an outsider. She is not even the sister of Sheng Hong, she is the sister of Wang Ruofu. Even Wang Ruofu is not that evil towards Minglan. What is she gaining from being evil to Minglan? At least with the stepmom, it would be the Gu wealth and title. 

 

When GTY fifth aunt was interfering with the maids at GTY new house, Minglan indirectly told her off that she is nobody. At least she has a little shame and left after realising that she is not even her mother in law nor sister in law. Why is Auntie Kang has no shame and why is Minglan not saying anything??

 

So true. Like wth you think you are Kang Yima??? You're not even related to ML! Can't you like go away already :triumph: But I think...

in the novel, it was said that Kang Yima is jealous with Mdm Wang life as her life isn't as good as Mdm Wang. So probably Kang Yima wanted to disturbed ML's life with her scheme to push the concubine into GTY's harem as ML is considered to be most successful compared to her other sister? Idk...

 

And another point... ARGHHHH (screaming in frustration) that concubine who is trying to kill herself in order to force ML to accept her into the house is so effing annoying! :triumph:

GTY is lucky to have ML as wife as she is more cautious.  Example, when Manniang resurfaced and tried to strangle Rong'Er, he got mad and would have killed Manniang in rage but ML interfered knowing that evil stepmom would be watching them 24/7.  She calmed him down and got him to see reasons and planned what they should be doing next. Always thinking ahead so whatever happens will not impact him and his place at court.  Like the ED, the emperor has a BUY-1-FREE-1 with the Gu family.   Stepmom was curious why there was no hooha as she knows well GTY's temperament and her maid told her that ML interfered.  Then when the grand aunt of GTY came to give him a concubine, ML accepted and thwarted stepmom's plan to get close to grand aunt as she was anticipating ML to refuse like she did in the past. I am pleased to see that they are such a matching couple.  

 

Thank you. Even in the latest episode where they teamed up to make the State General fall in love with his wife who is the daughter of the powerful Duke of Ying. I think that whole hooha with the concubine and wife of the State General at ML's banquet was somehow a scheme of the ED or she may have hoped that the Duke of Ying the father of the wife of the State General who was humiliated at the banquet will be angered and go to her side. She will be so mad when she learns that the State General has fallen for his polo galloping wife with the help of the scheming duo ML and TY. They are indeed the POWER COUPLE GTY and ML.... hail to the POWER COUPLE

I was annoyed too at first but then another clip showed the concubine crying and begging ML not to send her back. I think she is scared to death of Kang Aunt.....Kang must have made her life hell to become so desperate to get out of that house.

Aunti Kang short biography:

 

Back then when Aunti Kang and Wang Daniang were still single. For various reasons, Daniang was brought up by their grandparents while Aunti Kang grew up with their mother. Therefore, she was like their mother's precious daughter while Daniang and mother weren't very close. Aunti Kang grew up pampered by their mother and brothers to be a spoilt child. She believed she should have the best things in the world, everyone should revolve around her and she secretly looked down on her sister, considering her sister stupid and lowly. Then there were two men came to propose marriage to Wang family. Aunti Kang was the favoured one so she was allowed to choose first. Of course she chose the high status son of a Marquis, and Daniang was married off to Sheng Hong, who was just a low-level official at the time. 

 

Aunti Kang was very proud of her status and marriage. However, as time went by, the Marquis proved himself to be an extreme playboy. While being an useless man in his career, having no real influence in the government, he was very good at sweeping up girls and producing babies. Marquis Kang didn't care nor respect her at all. Aunti Kang had to deal with her husband's many shu children, using her own dowry to support them when they got married. She despised his concubines and shu children, treating them badly, coming up with any scheme necessary to get rid of them. Marquis Kang was also a despicable selfish man. He didn't care one bit about his women or children and pretty much just let Aunti Kang got her way. She married off most of the shu daughters to be concubines of old powerful men, sometimes in exchange for certain benefits, sometimes just to ruin them. Aunti Kang has become quite a sadistic distorted person who is jealous with anyone else's happiness. She especially hates low status people, concubines and shu children. She advises and supports her lady friends to use underhanded methods against the concubines. She holds petty grudges and will try to harm anyone who dares to oppose her (or not give a damn about her, she considers it a form of disrespect, she's a VIP).

 

Back to Daniang. When they were just married, Sheng Hong actually treated her well, respected her. She had quite a happy marriage. Aunti Kang was furious. She was jealous and she thought Daniang was not supposed to be better than her in any way. So she started whispering into Daniang's ears, encouraging her to interfere into SH's career. Daniang, proven to be a stupid and easy to be manipulated woman, lost SH's favor, that's when Concubine Lin came into the picture. She then encouraged Daniang to fight off CL, however, CL was also a cunning woman. Result: Daniang completely lost SH's trust and fell in power. Til then Daniang still didn't realize she should stay away from Aunti Kang. How stupid is this Daniang anyway?

 

Aunti Kang, although having no blood connection with Sheng family, considered herself an elder of the family and wanted everyone to respect and obey her. When Grandma told Daniang to stay away from her, she took that as an offense and kept score. She despised all shu children, especially ML, who was raised by Grandma. However, ML was married off to a Marquis-to-be general, who was a better catch than any of her own daughters could have. She was filled with rage and jealousy. She couldn't accept the fact that someone so lowly as ML will now have the same rank as her. From her POV, ML should know her place and bow down to her instead of standing so high and mighty. She hates ML and will jump at any opportunity to harm her.

 

And that's all the reasons behind Aunti Kang's actions. There's no logic at all in this crazy woman. She is just a malicious self-centered maniac whose only joy is to watch people suffer.

 

Now everything makes sense why Kang Yima acted an A grade a-hole towards ML and her family. Dang it why ahhh Daniang has a sudden drop of intelligent whenever she face this sister of her? Daning's argument always like "she is my blood sister. So why would she scheme against me?" Like dude where did you throw your brain?

Chang momo is the best! She disregard her status and scolded both Mdm Qin and Kang yima. No Chang momo is a MVP and deserve an award now lol. And the moment Kang yima trip, I was like "YESSS THAT WHAT YOU GET B.... HOPE YOUR FEET GET LAME" lol

God's

What a miserable and pathetic existence.

She and the step mother should get locked up in a remote prison and starve.

Or die like CL, alone and pathetic.

 

I hope the screen writers spice things up with regard the retribution faced by Mdm Qin and Kang Yima liked they did with CL's ending. Come on screenwriters, don't disappoint me pleaseee

Yes I saw the clip too. I hope it was like you think it is so it can be more justifiable and acceptable for her action. And not because she fall in love with GTY or anything blahblahblah.

jewelsc  You have to think about what day and age ML is living in and when it comes to the Step Mom  Vs  PP to totally different women.. The Gu house women don;t carry the status that the princess carries she would have to libe more cautiosly then ever not opening up hiding back at lot of she wants to say.. She would never ride another horse or play a polo match ever again because in PP etyes this is something a Princess DIL don;gt do or wouldn't do .. If ML married him she'll be living in a cage may as well marry a king and live inside that cage of the palace..   

ML didn't seemed all that intimidated by those imperial ladies, the way she talked with the ED or the consort or even the states general's wife so i'm sure she can handle QH's mom..and who knows maybe she will come to like ML eventually after ML does her 'magic' power on her :D. Anyways, that's a moot point now and i agree, GTY is perfect for her.

I really want to see more lovely dovey scenes of minglan and GTY...I feel like we haven't gotten that many. I've replayed all the ones we got so many times. They are sooo cute even when they are fighting. After reading auntie kang's background I still think that woman has some nerve. Who does she think she is? The Emperor himself? She needs to sit down somewhere and stay quiet. Ugh, I can't wait for her ending/doom to come. It better be horrible too just like CL's was.

Personally, I’d choose GTY over QH. Just because QH and ML were in love, doesn’t mean they will have a happy life. His mother consented the marriage not because she likes ML but because of the current situation the Qi family was in at that time. The Qi parents were also seen bad mouthing ML when they heard about GTY buying food for ML and her “antics” at the Gu household. 

 

I feel like GTY can protects ML better. He doesn’t care about his or his family image, he just do whatever he likes. He can stand up to his stepmom and uncles/aunts, the thing I doubt QH can. If ML is with QH, I don’t think she can be freely expressing herself like when she is with GTY. I think QH only see the soft, weak, elegant, virtous side of ML.

 

Also we don’t know what that arrogant Princess (Qi Mama) would do as ML mother in law. QH may loves ML and defends her at times but what about those time he is not home. ML probably continues to live a pretentious life like she was at the Sheng house so she is safe. And he will not have the guts to move out of the Qi manor like GTY did. There is also no guarantee that QH wouldn’t take in a concubine even when he said he wouldn’t. GTY said when he propose that he can’t guarantee that life with him would be easy, but I think with GTY, ML can become herself rather than pretending to be stupid and in daze all the time. 

Agree with yr views totally. But seeing too many and almost non stop/continous problems ML had to face.. could be one reason she is still without child (stressful life) eventho having GTY in bed almost daily.

 

Like grandma GTY is always alert and there to back up ML in messy situations which still aggreviates situations (others getting even jealous/ displeased/uneasy of ML - Molan, dad, stepmom, etc even Empress Dowager). So seems her problems coming from all corners look like endlesss.

 

QH is deeply in love.. legally married he shows respect to the wife but no deep interest/feelings so I pretty safely can assume concubine will not be too much of an issue. Even his 1st marriage looks like he did not have any. And selection definitely will be under mama's close scrutinity or only if he requests for one.

 

Mama learnt a bitter lesson.. the kidnap/rape/murder of bethrothed girl, QH crazy late wife and the threatment she received during the rebellion (she became cuckoo or acted?). But with one and only heir the love of her life and after what happened I presume she may now always give in to QH.

 

ML had enough childhood abusive memories even badly/carelessly treated by own father..  with GTY she had to face similar and worse situations... like getting out of a crocodiles mouth and jumping into a dragons mouth LOL (our local proverb), she deserves something better. 

 

Feelings between GTY/ML is still on early "testing" mode... ML swallowing all kinds of rubbish thrown her way and they have now combined the 2 Manors which is going to get worse. With these going on and GTY hazardous profession in military and court .. its tough to build a harmonious and happy life if their own. I can imagine even their kids may be victimised too due to power and greed in the Gu family.

 

As fir Dr He. We see how dejected and unhappy Molan is since she got married. Look, just to get out some secrets about Molan he already offered himself to the maid!! LOL

I do pity Mrs Kang shu daughter especially when she begged for her life but why do they always think that being the concubine will solve their problems?  I mean poor ML.  Now she has people crying to her to be the concubine to GTY or if not granted, they will commit suicide in front of her.  That was what annoys me no end......

If ML marry Dr.He, I think she'll be fine, she'll have a peaceful marriage without too much trouble. Nice husband, nice in-laws, even the nasty ones probably won't be smart enough to put up a proper fight against ML. Dr. He is the faithful kind, so ML won't have to worry much about concubine problems. But I can't help thinking that it will also be a waste of her talents. Right now, she has to deal with the nastiest kind of people, but man, is she powerful and awesome flexing all of her brain muscles =))) And I doubt that Dr. He will be able to fearlessly stand up against SH for her like GTY did in ep 52. Also, her current marriage is exciting, her husband gets her better than most people, their banters and interactions are bursting with so much chemistry and energy, even their fighting, whilst dumb and childish sometimes, are fun and thrilling (and very entertaining for us to watch). I, for one, don't worry about their fighting, they fight but it doesn't strain their relationship, they fight but they still have each other's back when necessary, they can fight then stop to discuss other matters or stop discussing other matters to fight. Idk, I just find all the fighting endearing and actually help strengthening their relationship not damaging it. I laugh at GTY's stepmother's glee when she finds out that they're sleeping in separate rooms, like lady, you underestimate them, they're not gonna break that easily :lol:

 

Anyway, my point is that though Dr.He is nice and all (bless him), I think that ML would have to settle for much less than she's capable of if she marry him, that her marriage with him, while peaceful, would left her somewhat cramped and unsatisfied. I genuinely believe that she will be much more free and happy marrying the one she's with now.
