Yeah @UnniSarah i agree with you that NQ n SS are connected spiritually, SS is natal item (i'm using novel word) for NQ, and maybe NQ is natal item for SS, since they have been together for almost age of their life (especially SS). That's why they share the same aura and energy, either it is hades aura or something else, and make everybody include rival and enemy think NQ as the son of hades or SS as the daughter of the light maybe.

 

I'm still reading from the beginning and sometimes jump into a quick search.

@epinklyn.... Even though I love spoilers, I chose to read it from the beginning until the end. :heart: I know how tempting spoilers can be. smh smh Smh smh

I am excited to start the novels. Been meaning to a few weeks back but had to finish other books for work and real life stuff to deal with etc.  I will try to start this week and report back. 

 

Can i just also say say how much I love the opening music. It has slowly creeped up on me and now I absolutely adore the piece. Will look forward to the original scores.

The credits do not belong to him alone thought, so he better treat the stunt team well because they made him look really good hehe... But actually I'm more surprised of the fact that the director for this drama is a lady, and she achieved someting akin to what Zhang Yimou did with Hero. Pei fu, pei fu...

 

With regards to the novel, I've reached the climax between NQ-XH and I'm surprised/ shocked by the story behind. This ain't your typical I-wanna-kill-you-because-you-killed-my-family plotline. It is very, VERY different. And I totally admire the author for his unique story. I ended up feeling equally afraid OF NQ as much as I feel afraid FOR him.

what do you mean by Hero. Pei fu, pei fu?

HERO is a movie directed by ZhangYiMou long time a go, so many talented actors like Tony Leung, JetLi, ZhangZiYi, the fighting action n cinematography was great!

 

Pei fu pei fu, means like give appreciation standing applause but in chinese way or jianghu style.

 

Yeah so many wondering n wondering in this drama, i like it a lot! Viewers must think hard LOL.

I also like the opening video. It felt like a serious epic classic movie, instead of a fantasy drama .

I actually quite like the novel NQ but understand why drama NQ had to be a little different...happy that drama NQ kept some of his basic traits...cold, arrogant and whatever benefits him and Sangsang.

Yeah. I like novel NQ too, because I've always loved smart characters. But I honestly love the drama version more, because he is more noble and kind

@Wotad, the explanation given by @epinklyn is correct. In the movies/ drama they usually say this with hand gestures (fist against palm) haha... For the movie HERO, Zhang Yimou managed to gather the hot names of that time, and the martial art scene was quite a feast to the eyes for many reasons.

 

I like novel NQ too. In fact, novel NQ is more of an anti-hero, i think. SS is obviously his weak spot, but he has great respect for his teacher and academy seniors. But novel NQ is dark and flawed, whereas drama NQ feels a bit tragic? Well, I guess we have to wait for the last episode to understand how different novel and drama NQ is.

 

Novel SS is colder. Drama SS is warmer and a bit of a mother hen. I think novel SS is fiercer in her loyalty to NQ, but drama SS is very lovable!

 

All in all, I don't have much complaint on how the characters' personalities divert from the novel but I wonder if this will affect the storyline. I mean, novel NQ feels a tad more desperate than drama NQ. Desperate to enter 2nd floor, desperate to protect SS, desperate to get revenge, desperate to live. The only part in the drama that the desperation matches the novel was when NQ met 2nd Senior for the first time.

Regarding NQ's desperations, yeah I also feel that the novel version is more desperate. I think it's because the drama shows a lot of other characters and their development, while IMHO, they should just replace some parts (like the annoying Prince with his spoiled attitudes..seriously, do we need to see him often? ) with NQ's flashbacks instead, in order to show more about his sufferings when he was a child. Right now, we only have the flashbacks of the massacre in the general's house (which they repeated over and over again) and a bit of NQ's running from soldiers. 

 

I do think that the drama had shown that NQ was anxious (when he waited for the announcement of Academy entrance exam and the competition to the 2nd Floor) and desperate to learn to cultivate, and really happy when he made it, or when NQ tried to talk to the King but he couldnt . Perhaps they should show something like that more.

So about difference of character in book and drama... I actually see it a bit differently than you guys.... hehe..

I'm more on the how the script writer want to show "Youth" to our generation. 

 

Reading old historical book, In my mind, I always have to remember that eventho the character is said to be 12-14, or 16, mentally they are older. Because that's how it is in the old days, 16 yo kids those days are mentally 20-25 in our time. 

 

That's why I think the changes in NQ and other younger actors in the drama resonates more with the perception of "youth" in our current time blended in a xianxia cultivation story. It's not a big change, but somehow a kinder NQ does feel more likable no?

@lynne22... I love the novel NQ and the Drama NQ. I think because drama doesn't show all of NQ's adventure in the drama,  so a lot of you think they are different but I disagree. Sang Sang is also the same as the book. I don't think Sang Sang is cold but knows what NQ really wants , that is why she doesn't speak much. She would only speak if she was curious or thought when he needed counsel. In the drama SS mostly ask question to her young master only when he needed counsel but the actress tone was adorable and sweet. I don’t thinking’s SangSang was talkative but she was a good listener and NQ respect her opinion. Also I think they wanted to us viewers to see the changes in NingSang  as the drama progresses so that we can all accept their future relationship  and not WONDER WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN. 
NQ is still desperate but the book described his desperatenessmore vividly  meanwhile in the drama they can't really go in to it that much but his body language shows the desperateness. 

Sang Sang attitude had to be a bit warmer because she is changing a lot since her moved to CHangan. I think we all need to take account to how they raised themselves , so they will never act like normal people.

I have a big question  about the WebNovel app

Spoiler

I wanted to use the webnovel because It seems I will be able to read it offline. Was just wondering if buying the spirit stones worth it. IF the translation is superb, I am game.....

@UnniSarah Agreed, the script writer need to do the changes in order to "show, not tell" us the progression of NQ-SS. Personally I have don't have many problem with the changes. :wub: as long as the show keep heart of the story.

NQ-SS as a family unit is shown very heartfelt here... :wub::tears:

-------------------------------------------

Anyway... this is a nice article about Ever Night... Link, I enjoyed reading it.. but I had to use google translate because its in Chinese :lol:.

The article talks about something I've mentioned before.. on how I felt about Jiang Ye's book. Jiang Ye/Ever Night a story about youth, choices we made, and also about growth... on physical and emotional level. So I'm on the same page with the article writer.

-------------------------------------------

 

Mo Shan Shan's theme song has been released. The title is 莫望.. I'm not sure but does the title means "Not hoping"@angelangie? or someone can help? 

I like it... it's a sad song and is sung so softly.. Sigh.... this song  is as graceful as Mo Shan Shan's character.

@UnniSarah sorry cant help with webnovel, but many people said the translation from web novel is not good. Maybe you can try read some pages then you'll know whether it is correct or not, there is also mission to achieve the spirit stone freely, you can also watch video to get free spirit stone.

 

@lynne22, thx for link, i read it with google translator LOL, yeah i quite agree with the author too. But i just read in rough translation, maybe if @satanghaesolim have time can help translate it :P.

 

So the ost is belong to each character? Which are Ning Que's n SangSang's?

@epinklyn 

I’m not sure.. I only know that Mo Wang is Mo Shan Shan’s hehe... its very obvious because they use this song in her scenes.

Old Chang And and Yong Ye/ Eternal Night lyric wise (as translated by viki)  seems to be Ning Que’s. 

There is another ost called Red Dust debuted in ep 24 iirc. 

@UnniSarah

Spoiler

If I’m not mistaken, the incident was the strange experience they had when they were standing in front of the vermilion bird painting. 

I can’t remember if they ever discuss this... sorry..

Through the whole book and drama the only thing I'm curious about is Ning Que.

 

I'm really curious as to who Ning Que really is? Where was his origin? He isn't from this world but where.....

He is connected to SangSang but how?  Even until the end of the novel it wasn't really explained clearly.
