[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

I been thinking a bit not sure if im alone in this but i do think ML is sort of leading QH on a bit she knows her position yet keeps flirting with him and she made those knee pad's etc.. i think she should have stomped it out more clearly but maybe that is me. 

 

I suppose this was her weakness she gave into "love" a bit.

I think you are right. The only defence i can think that she is still young abd flattered with the attention given by QH. Thus reciprocated a little bit. But she knew that they can't be together. That's why she gave the knee pad secretly abd denied it whwn QH asked her about it. I'm too will be flattered with QH. Such a handsome adoring man with infectious smile. B)

Ha ha.. And his butler laughing  at him when he looked at the surprised face of QH when ml rode the horse skilfully during the polo games. He said simply "she lied to you. :lol:

Ha ha...he’s lucky his butler is loyal to him and didn’t spill the beans when he was questioned by the Princess. The butler was brave to be constantly covering for him...but Princess Mama ain’t dumb since she has an idea now that her little boy likes one of the Sheng girls, just doesn’t know which one. Even her husband is scared of her...the icey look she gave the Duke in the carriage when he said the Sheng girls were pretty.

Yeah...when she made him the knee pads and snuck it into the basket, I was thinking something similar. I think she told grandma that she understands and knows it’s not possible but it’s hard. Grandma knew something was up when she was anxious about the test results. She’s young and getting all that attention from a handsome young man...definitely some infatuation there. I mean who wouldn’t fall for him and his smiles.

 

Saw that ZYL was in Eternal Wave with ZLY, Aaron Kwok, and Zhang Han...so they’ve worked together a little bit before.

Yes, during that time zyl was not as popular now. He gained his popularity through Soul Town drama. And he has been debuted for 10 years.

Looks like Ming Lan Wikipedia got updated with more characters and households. 

Spoiler

Is the 3rd sister that played against ML the one from Yu family? Cause Wikipedia has her listed at GTY’s first wife. I can understand why they didn’t get along if she is. She threw a tantrum at the polo match when they lost.

From the previews for 17-18, Maniang really has no shame with the way she’s acting to the women GTY is trying to propose to when I realized that was her on the floor holding onto the chair leg.

The novel and the drama will be different. From the novel, after Gty's father passed away, Gty proposed to ML's friend. But he was rejected because of his not so good reputation and manniang machination(she came to the house of ML's friend and plead not to marry Gty). Gty misunderstood and accused ML as the reason his proposal got rejected. Minglan told him the truth about manniang but he refused to believe at that time. Then, he went away, joined the army and contributed to the prince to take the throne. So, he was appointed as a general. Came back and start his machinations to win ML as his wife. During that period, he started to investigate manniang and discover the truth.

She is a practical person. Very grounded. So, it does not matter to her. Even Sheng family gifted gty with 2 maids as his concubines. But Gty has not touch them. Ignore them completely.

When he try to win over Minglan did he already discovered the truth about his mistress first? Or was it in the middle that he knows the truth while also try to win Minglan too? Why he wanna win Minglan? And when they did their marriage did Minglan like GTY too or she married him cus of his plan?

Yes, he already knew the truth about manniang when he decide to marry minglan. He try to win minglan because of her cleverness. And he knew the custom disallow him to marry her because of his higher status than minglan. The why he set up to marry rulan and when rulan was caught meeting with his sweetheart and ruin the family reputation , he offered to substitute rulan with minglan. At the time of marriage, minglan accepted Gty but didn't love or trust him. The love and trust came later. From the drama, i think the situation will be different. I like the drama better than the novel. In the novel, minglan was to jaded. Whilst in the drama, she was clever, assertive

The custom. Maybe to lessen the burden of wife. Men were too passionate during the period. Lol. :lol:

I hope GTY already know how bad his mistress is before trying to win Minglan. I like the drama more than the novel too and from the little clips that i see here and there Minglan seem to like GTY before marrying him but i think after marriage she will love him and trust him more

Probably to make up replacing a legitimate born daughter with a concubine born....or simply the Sheng mothers doesnt want ML to get complete attention from the Marquis. Afterall ML status will be accearated far above their other children..just my assumption:D

thanks so much about these amazing spoilers.from these spoilers i think that GTY isn`t actually a bad character from the start.but actually a sad one .he was deceived by that snake manniang and she uses his pities as a sword towards him.but i like that he `ll be smart and will discover that soon.and also by his family and father.

 

so.when will he discover that:lol:.in the upcoming eps.or still some long eps.Wanna see Blood:lol:
