I think it's a combination of bad make-up, most were chubbier, varying amounts of plastic surgery, and, most importantly, no filter.  Now most of the dramas have beauty filters that smooth and whiten the the skin and make pores and imperfections disappear.  It's really noticeable watching a drama now and a drama from a few years ago.  I rewatched Bu Bu Jing Xin from 2011 over the Christmas holidays and I was surprised by seeing spots, pores, eyebags, wrinkles even their skin looks darker instead of the impossibly smooth ivory skin so many actors seem to have now  :w00t:


Wow I didn't know about the beauty filter but it makes a lot of sense now why everyone looks so perfect in recent dramas.

Yes, I love that I'm so happy that she isn't the typical happy-go-lucky, plucky airhead.  she's smart, cabpable, insolent sometimes and confident in her abilities.

 

Yes!  But what's with nearly all the women in the book always scheming against HYX.  And why are all the men in love with HYX and all the women with LFY??

I wouldn't mind either but if we are going to see more LFY bottom - I demand better body double this time, please!:unsure:

 

 

I second this!  I was so underwhelmed by that body double's behind hahaha. ^_^

Not sure if it's because I'm imagining ZZH & JJY but their chemistry even in the book is off the charts! Their scenes together especially when they start getting physical are kinda hot.   :wub:

The author is a good writer (and credits to the translator as well) - she leaves us wanting more. Chemistry is oozing off the pages, and there's a lot of s*xual tension between the two :lol:  I read in the comments somewhere that they don't consummate their marriage until Chap 840+ hahahaha....we have a long way to go! Waiting for the Giant Iceberg to melt is really testing my patience! But I know why they had to change a lot for the drama because otherwise, we wouldn't get a hug or a kiss until Epi 40 lol

Novel LFY & HYX are a lot more *ahem* hands on than in the drama lol.... I didn't think they could keep their hands off each other for another 200+ chapters!  If you want a preview, take a look at Ch. 527 and Ch. 570... they get quite frisky hehehe.  :phew:

 

I'm officially through the available translated chapters and I'm now having both drama AND novel withdrawal. :(   I tried starting a couple new dramas and nothing's really giving me that cracky feeling...

Thanks for the *um* preview of things to come :smirk:...

I kind of like the development of their relationship in the novel. It does make it realistic since they were complete strangers and he was such an emotionless person. I also think the writers did a great job developing their relationship in the drama. No one fell head over heels so quickly and they truly fell for each other's personalities more so than looks...although ZZH is quite a hottie and JJY is very pretty so even if it was love at first sight, it would be believable.

 

I'm like you, no other dramas can satisfy me right now. I watch an episode or two of the new Cdramas and I get bored. No interest in the main leads lol.  I even tried watching Mr. Swimmer and the male lead really turned me off! so I'm enjoying reading the novel and will occasionally watch an episode to remind me of the lovely couple.

 

I'm really looking forward to Zhao Ge (hope it's gonna be really good!!!) but I hear it doesn't air till December :cry:

 

Let's keep this thread alive to entertain ourselves in the mean time lol

I absolutely love that we were shown how they fell for each other, instead of just told, both in the novel and in the drama.  One of my pet peeves in dramas is when the male lead gets dumbstruck by the girl at first sight and inexplicably loves her forever after.  Nothing wrong with instant physical attraction, but I need more meat in my OTP relationship.  The part I enjoy the most is seeing HOW the couple falls in love, so I feel cheated if it's just because he/she is attractive.

 

Yes, waiting for the giant ice cube to melt was suuuuper slow, but it just made it that much more rewarding every time there's a chapter of their interaction.  I have to admit some points in the novel didn't sit well with me, but overall it was a really good read.... and I'm excited that the translator just resumed translating!

I was waiting for Mr. Swimmer to finish airing before watching... too bad it doesn't seem like reviews are too positive?  Is December a confirmed airing date for Zhao Ge?  I hope they at least air this year!  Wonder why it took so long.  Doesn't look like ZZH has any more historical dramas lined up after that... so sad!  I hope he gets good projects after LOYX's popularity bump (for his sake and mine hahaha :P).

I read it in a blog so I'm not sure if Dec is confirmed. I hope it's in this year and not pushed back to 2019! Maybe they have a lot of post-production to do?

He said in an interview that he's working on a movie and will do a drama after that. I think he's also filmed two dramas previously that have not aired yet...so we have lots to look forward to! =)

For those who miss our Qin wang ;)

 

 

 

Aw he's so cute. I'm sad his other dramas weren't that good...I finished them but didn't enjoy them even half as much as this one! He and JJY are too cute together...maybe they'll have a project together in the future. 

 

Edit: Hope he keeps doing period dramas!

 

Still enjoying the novel a lot!

To relieve my boredom until something else comes along, I've been editing subtitles and timing. Bless the original subbers, but some of these translations are at times baffling and downright funny. My Mandarin is rudimentary, but are these accurate? :w00t:

I figured out the other weirdly translated lines, but always wondered what this one is LOL. 

 

Apparently, Endymion was a handsome mortal from Greek mythology https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endymion_(mythology)

 

I'm watching Cosmetology High where he plays a bad guy...it's entertaining so far.

Lol...all I can think of is Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon. Prince Endymion was one of his alter egos.

:lol::lol::lol:  I can't stop laughing!  Those translations were terrible for following the actual drama but definitely good for a laugh! 

 

That is very kind of you to fix them.  It's all fun and games to me now but when I was first trying to watch LoYX I wanted to cry with frustration and nearly gave up on the drama completely because of how bad those subtitles were :tears:

 

Still enjoying the novel too.  Han Yun Xi is so far shaping up as an awesome heroine. So many of the supporting characters are teeth-grindingly frustrating but it is tolerable because YX manages to hold her own and can deal with them.  LFY is barely in the novel so far.

I also love novel HYX! She's so smart and witty. I particularly love how she deals with difficult situations and how she handles all the annoying characters. It's also funny how ruthless she can be some times, similar to LFY.

Yes, I love how she can be petty and vindictive and take advantage sometimes like a normal person.  I cannot stand those unrealistic angelic heroines who just smile and forgive everyone and everything.  Yun Xi is like, nope, you cross me and I'll get my revenge and pocket some useful expensive herbs too :lol:

Whatever you do, never ever bet against novel Yun Xi!  :lol:

Definitely! Intelligent, smart, inquisitive, calculating when she needs to be. We need more heroines like her!

I keep hoping she stays this likeable.  Often heroines lose their awesomeness when they fall in love so I hope that doesn't happen to Yun Xi as she and  LFY begin to develop feelings for each other

Yes, so agree! I get so annoyed at female leads who are suppose to be strong and smart but let other people push them around or fall for stupid schemes by the same person again and again, and then the male lead has to save her. HYX doesn't need LFY but he's there to protect her when he feels she needs him.

Yes, so far both characters are pretty consistent. I like how HYX can totally carry on her own without LFY, but also love how he just shows up and saves the day when she least expects it - though she doesn't know that he's always stalking her LOL.

 

There's a scene where she punishes the empress dowager's maid with 50 canes and when LFY hears about it, he says it was a good beating (I'm paraphrasing) - I laughed so hard at how they think alike! They make an awesome team.

I know I love Yun Xi as a heroine because I enjoy her scenes and internal dialogue so much.  With some lead characters I'm basically just reading for the OTP scenes but I'm perfectly happy with the focus on Yun Xi...although I m looking forward  to OTP scenes too!  I am enjoying the way they are very, very slowly and realistically warming to each other even if neither of them realise it yet.

 

That scene sounds hilarious. I can already totally imagine Yun Xi doing that and LFY approving.  What a pair! :lol:

Aside from her own personality, I think HYX learns a lot from LFY in terms of how she is dealing with people and that what makes them getting more alike. It also helps that LFY himself starts to let HYX develop her own thinking process.

 

I like HYX more than any female characters in C-novel so far mainly because she knows how to place herself in almost all kind of situation. Especially if it is related to LFY. There are a lot of examples for this. As LFY's main and only wife, she can refrain herself from begging the enemy even if she wants to just because it will humiliate LFY. And also, in front of the enemy, she shows her trust in LFY 100% and if she has some questions, she will ask LFY when they are alone.

 

One more thing that I like about the novel is the miscommunication and misunderstanding are never narrated in such a long-winded way that take a lot of chapters to finish it. Mostly, they just take a couple of chapters and then it is done.
