Tonight episodes very sad and happy. Sad for GTY who lost his father. Happy that he realized the stepmother manniang were evil women. Tomorrow night another interesting episodes. QH's mother was very cunning woman. He put a block to QH's love permanently. QH cried. Ohh.. Ershu saved minglan for the 2nd time. 

 

Sure GTY will be more matured & strong after his father died. Good to hear he realised MN's evil attitide.

Poor QH. His mom not just cunning but a non-negotiable woman. Even QH's father was been controlled by her.

So matured with beard. Like an old man. Ha ha. QH mom was evil. He gave hope to QH and crushed it mercilessly. QH was so awkward and stuttering when talking to Minglan. Her status changed from wife to be sister in the blink of eye.

Hello everyone 

 I wonder will the drama and novel for GTY’s romance with ML be exact. SPOILERYYYYY BEWARE  . 

Spoiler

I don’t think it will be. They introduced GTY to ML very early on in the drama.  Was GTY saving ML on the ship just like in the novel???  I heard the polo match wasn’t in the novel either. My curiosity is peeked now and was thinking that it would be better if GTY doesn’t trick her into marrying him at all.  In episode 18 episode we saw ML’s mom stitching in GTY’s hand and he remembered the past.  Ming Lan also made him soup because of the news that his father died. 

 

Questions for everyone who has seen episode 19-20??

I will be honest , I FFw some scenes.

I got the feeling GTY’s father finally felt for his son painbut had to spit blood ????

The WiFE Murdered him by refusing to let him get help from a doctor. Did I see right TSOML Fans?????

 

I am dying to know what he whispered to his stepmom????

Even his brother was  in on murdering his own father. Am I right on that too???

That is so sad.  cry-cute-cat-emoticon.gif I wished they let us see him die??? Did he say something. What do you guys think????? So many questions

I am loving this drama and have been waiting and I am glad because I lost interest for ZLY OGT drama because of the too many lovelines I wasn’t interested in. Lol At least in this story everything and each character has its purpose. The only thing I was going crazy about for a minute was, prior to watching TSOML the drama I had finished very quickly due to many FF was Legend of DUGU, there is a character there name Man Tou whom I have dubbed as my 2018 number one most annoying detestable female antigonist and was reason for the many fast forwards. LOL And to my surprise the same actress is playing as Man Niang.... :w00t: haha at least her character is not as annoying as Man tou so I can forgive and forget. 

As for whoever ML end up with we already know, doesn’t matter to me because I’m glad the drama is not all about love triangles and each man has their time to shine respectively. I’m more interested about Minglan triumphs and showing her true self and how they will become a power couple.

I’m not really surprised though that the drama is not as big as her Princess Agents but it’s unfortunate as I think it’s way better directed and I like it way way more.

 No tom and jerry in the latest eps..a.k.a Molan/Rulan:tounge_xd: Rulan bickering with molan is my everyday vitamin..reminds me when I was teen also fighting with my big sis:D...

so glad that ML is now  out of her shell, not totally though,,but almost there:Dthough not understand a thing in ep 18, I salute her for handling the situation well with  that, maniang girl,,,( everytime I see maning face, reminds me of yang zi's face:rolleyes:).

Happy for the rating,,,lets all pray that it will go up up and up for the fw.eps.

Btw Im holding up and trying hard myself not to read the spoilers on the discussion I hope I will last long and survive:tounge_xd:...

His mom has evil heart not loving heart. All the while she make believe & purposely agreed to his son's request yet in actual fact she never approved it. She was playing with her son's hope & emotions. No mercy at all.

Zly takes on her character as minglan. Insightful and full of wisdom.

Zhao Liying 

2018-12-25 from glory V20 48 million 3D camera

#电视剧 know whether it should be green fatred thin #盛明兰, seemingly indifferent to warm, but in fact tough and bold, in the conspiracy struggle to honed a transparent and keen exquisite heart. She understands both the situation and the retreat, and she dares to open up everything to protect the people and things she cherishes. The story of Minglan is not just a "prostitute to attack the success of the prostitute", "reverse attack" is not only an upgraded monster in the past, but also a mirror reflecting the life. Ming Lan said in the play, "I like the faint days most, and it is best not to happen anything." This is the most pristine initial heart after she has gone through thousands of sails, and reflects the background of each of us. In the more than six months of getting along with Minglan, I have been interpreting her and talking to her. She has pulled me from idealism to realism. I understand that the strength of a person does not necessarily come from confrontation. From balance and tolerance. I can understand the true meaning of life and reconcile with it, and then warm up love and hard work. This is the most wonderful power that life has given us. This kind of power, I hope to feel with you. 

Do you know if you are broadcasting today, I wish you all a Merry Christmas
and wish us "I know no": "Home and everything"!

I cry for him too. His mom is too horrible for a MIL. Hé can never marry a none he loves ... only those girls his mom deem fit. So sad. If only the mom is open, she would love ML and see all her good qualities and ML has so much to offer to the household and QH. ML would literally help QH to further his career.

 

Actually ML and her family's situation at present won't be able to help QH at all. If her father had a much higher position then maybe. But as of now marrying ML might even be a disadvantage to QH. And marriages among the rich in those times were not made because of what the bride had to offer to the household, it was because of what her family had to offer the grooms family. So marriages usually were made with families of similar status. Regular rich families can marry their sons and daughters down, in families with less money or power. But, in noble families you'd only find marriages made with their own level or above....if they wanted to climb higher.   

 

Turning point for GTY's character coming tomorrow. I think it was after this incident that he started to take notice of her.

Episode 19 is the epic turnaround for GTY because with his father's death, his stepmom has shown her true colours by lying blatantly that she did not sent him to fetch the doctor and denied barring him from seeing his father.  He realised that the stepmom whom he had high regards for since he was young has been lying to him all along.  She is a two faced witch!  At least with Lin concubine, she never hide her face.  Gu madame is a piece of work.  No doubt it has been her who was responsible for running up brothels bills (through her family members ??? ) but using GTY's name thus ruining his reputation and image.  I am so excited for this drama and I like it because it is not idol drama....no lovey dovey but more in line with family life that we can relate to.

Man...that scene between GTY and MN was intense. FSF did a great job. I think this production did an awesome job with casting cause all the actors and actresses bring across every emotion that they want you to feel. We could feel in these last two episodes GTY’s turning point. And then they’re going to give us the same with ZYL’s QH when he reaches his crisis point. And true to the novel, they’ve been giving us the subtleness of ML’s strengths and growth. For me, this is one of ZLY’s best roles. Really loving this drama. This production and the director along with the cast has put in a lot of hard work and it shows. I think fantasy and action dramas can get away with a lot by wowing audiences with crazy fighting sequences (physically works the actors/actresses a lot) which dramas like this don’t have a lot of so there’s more pressure on the cast, director, and production team.

no drama in the near future will be able to touch princess agents it had crazy online views and tv rating's yet such a crap end.
