[Current Mainland Chinese Drama 2018] The Story of Ming Lan 庶女明兰传 / 知否?知否?应是绿肥红瘦

Recommended Posts

There seems to be a lot of speculation in terms of what GTY knows and what he doesn't.

And what the Emperor really knows..

The previews may also be rather misleading. 

 

Even if this is all part of GTY's plan to weed out ED's supporter, I do believe there were elements that caught him by surprise. Ie MN to come back, for one, would not be in his plans since MN really has little interest in the fight btw Emperor and ED. 

 

Reckon it's safe to take that it's part planned, part unplanned. And the stakes have gotten so high for him to let ML go. 

Show has established that he would protect her no matter what, but also established that he truly loves her, and isn't one who would propose for separation just to test her. 

I don't know. It feels the matter is too serious to be a test. He has always been able to wager it all for her, so it has to be bigger than anything for him to propose that. 

 

Now I just need to brace for impact...

Everyone seems to want to have a piece of our power couple, everyone wants to contribute to their downfall. 

I'm sure they will rise from the ashes, but first, we need to see them getting burned...:tears:

I dunno.. Gty looks so calm that make me think that everything is under his control. 

For MN, she has been put under the control of head village that if she step one feet from the village, gty will know. It's impossible for him not to know about the sudden appearance of MN. 

About letting ML go, it could be gty took opportunity to test ml's love fof him, whether she will stay with him no matter what... Very bad of him, if it's true. 

Anyway, i can't sit still when watching the drama.. Really intense. 

Can't wait for their happy and tranquil day.

Honestly if it's a test, I might come to despise the character. I'm sure it's pretty evident in recent episodes that she loves him, a lot. 

When she hugged him and cried after her childbirth, she literally told him that her heart shattered cuz she thought he died...

To put her through all the pain and agony just for a test, pushed it a tad bit too far for me. 

Hence I'm hoping it's more than just a test. It's a bit more consistent with his character, for he has always been holding grudge at whoever that hurt her, and to do that himself seems out of character....

The distance she goes for him...only to have a test..hmm...

 

Either way, we are in for a roller coaster ride!

Just watching flames coming from such distance, despite his wife's and parent's objections the first thought tht came into QH's mind was the safety of ML (even not confirming whether fire was at Marquis Gu manor).

 

ML is pregnant and giving birth to another man's child.. they once shared a close relationship, yet QH's main priority was to safe ML. 

 

He was once very upset when ML did not write to him about grandma's poisoning. These kind of acts of "true love"  makes GTY jittery I suppose??

 

So he is going to prostitute Wei to test ML's heart?? LOL . Hope it does not backfire!!!

You are right, that is not gty's characters. Maybe he tells her so to convince anyone who might be listening to their conversation that his position is so dire that no way he can make a come back.

He didn't go to Prostitute wei because of that.. He, prunce huan and few of their group actually used pro wei's room as their centre to plot and discuss on political issue. It's a clever move as no one will suspect them.

I agree now so intense, i feel i'm  having a heart attack watching each episode. Hoping for the happy glory day soon.

 

A sad scene, I think minglan went to seek for the empress help & mercy.:tears:

Even if it is planned, I guess there are risks for ml. Something unpredictable or not planned could happen. Not every plan goes as planned. And when gty is not there, she will be alone to fight their enemies. She is at the mercy of stepmom and others.

Agreed, something may go awry. But then gty left shitou to be with ml, to protect her. The last time shitou was left with ml, during the rebellion of the late emperor. Gty must have confident in shitou ability to protect her. And shitou himself was not bad. Eventhough he looks kind of dumb (ha ha) he's actually a clever person.

Poor ml, she even can feel the sweet jealousy and throwing tantrum just for a short time, now she has to wear her armour to battle 6 villains. Since her pregnancy until after delivery, she has been silently crying. Even before the empress, only her tears fell down onto the floor, drop by drop. How helpless she felt. The silent tears actually moved the empress.

So Fengxian is from a brothel and was purchased by Stepmom? :huh: How did I miss that. I really thought she was just a clever farmgirl spy from paternal aunt.

I think it was just revealed, even the Gu aunt missed it too and was fooled by Stepmom. The Gu aunt would not have wanted a woman from the brothel to be a concubine of the head of the family of Gu. The only reason the Gu family accepted TY's mom who was a merchant's daughter is because they needed her money and they hated themselves and TY's mom for being associated to a merchant's daughter although TY pointed out that they enmoyed the luxury that the Bai money brought them . Gu aunt said that stepmom asked for her help to make ML accept the concubine whom the stepmom recommended.

Yeah almost all minglan's scenes after grandma poisioning is sad but i think the silent crying is the most painful scene to watch. I guess as always we will surely be crying with her this time :tears:

I hope she will succeed to get the empress help to seek justice on her husband & kill those 6 villians for good.

Oh OK, I thought Fengxian is a relative of GTY aunt, that’s why she was sent as concubine for GTY. I think stepmom mentioned that Fengxian is not as attractive, that’s why she couldn’t get GTY favour. If she is a prostitute, shouldn’t she be quite attractive and skillful.

Mte, either he feels ml and their son’s safety is severely at risk, or worst case, he prepares to die for his cause, if everything went wrong, ml could get implicated just by being his wife

Ml to visit gty in lock up. Gty so happy and chase out prince huan from his cell (they were playing chess at the time.. Ha ha) 

 

Gty’s ability to not be miserable in dire situation is amazing :joy: just say that ml will be there, he’ll make a pity party to get ml’s attention. Must be exhausting being his enemies

 

wait... ml should cane him if he’s mentioning separation just to get her pity :angry:

Every teardrop, every hardship, every pain... are all challenges for Ming Lan to fight and overcome so that at the other end of the tunnel, she will come out stronger and stronger so that she can use the strength to protect those dear to her.
