@lynne22 and @rhaps Thanks for the info chingu.

I do agree these scenes just warm my heart so much as I watch these two together. He dotes on her a lot. But we just admit that Ning Que is also changing as he meets other woman. His attitude towards her changes but his protectiveness does change. I especially loved this scene 

 

 

@UnniSarah 

Spoiler

in the last line you mean his protectiveness doesn't change? I agree.. it's called growth for a reason.. :wub:

 

@owawa Yeah there's plus and minus in the adaptation. 

 

My thoughts on subbed ep 9-10 focusing on Chong Ming and The emperor and going back to ep 06-07 towards Li Peiyan

Spoiler

So, the additional story line of Chong Ming's meeting etc and assassination attempt is not in the book.

I find it interesting because in the book CM is not that fleshed out, and aside from knowing he's going to be the king of Yan, there's not much that the writer talk about him. 

I know that CM and Li Yu consider them self friend, eventho there will always be a line between them because of their country. 

Here, in the drama I see that CM looks to be someone bidding their time, and can hold a grudge for a long time.... so I'm guessing that perhaps in the future (Drama plot) he will have more role to play.

 

Based from I see so far, CM has been instructed by the Yan King and has meeting regularly with spies planted in Tang Empire with helps by Xiling. 

His failed attempt to cause chaos in the academy examination, proves 2 things to me:

1. Even tough he hates the empire, but he doesn't necessarily hates Li Yu, because she's his friend. He is more real in front of her than in front of the emperor. He's fake.. so fake in front of the emperor.

2. He Mingchi, is someone planted by xiling as a spy for them in the Tang empire and also CM's dealing. I'm surprised his role is revealed so soon in this drama... I had to wait till almost 700+ chapters till I know who he truly serves, which is xiling...  

 

The highlight for both of the episode for me is that The emperor even tough he didn't say much, also know that the assassination attempt is for him, not Li Yu, and he knows that it's on CM's command. 

Emperor's word to CM "don't be a tool for other people" is a strong statement that he also knows and guessed that xiling is also has an involvement with CM and Yan's meeting.

But, he's still willing to give CM a chance again, because he CM saves Li Yu, so he's turning a blind eye for now... that's the meaning of his advise to CM for me, hoping CM can understand and not repeat this anymore. 

 

And it all ties back with Chao Xiaoshu's event in ep 6-7, the emperor doesn't look like someone that would give harsh dealing to others if it doesn't reach his bottom line.

Because the Fish dragon Gang is actually formed by himself to stabilize the city etc, he won't allow them to be destroyed. Even if the instigator is his own brother. Li Peiyan. 

I see here (in the drama) for a long time, The emperor always turn a blind eye towards his brother, but for Chao Xiaoshu's event, he won't stand by... but still I find that Li Peiyan got away a little too easy.. the other minister tho wasn't so lucky.

It's not shown here.. but in the book the ministers he called out in the court was replaced after his event. And I think this is the meaning of Chao xiaoshu in ep 6, when he says that "He (meaning the emperor) needs me to be successful in the battle tonight. Because he wants to know if his opponent has any hidden agenda.

Meaning: 

- does this matter is not just about Fish Dragon gang or is it more wider scale aka rebellion? 

- does it also have CM and xiling's involvement?

The answer for me is it's just about Fish dragon gang, even tho CM do have a hand in having his spy creating instigating matters to Li Peiyan's mind, it's more toward making trouble in the capital than about their rebellion. So it's still internal matter. 

 

Another thought, I think the Emperor still turn a blind eye toward Li Peiyan wanting the throne because he feels guitly a little.. that's why when  Li peiyan acts pitiful in front of the emperor in ep 06, he got away more easily than the ministers. 

 

Btw,  The Fish dragon gang's translation name in viki -Ichtyosaur- is so hard to pronounce even reading it is hard... ahaha.. I had to stop and stare at it for awhile :sweatingbullets: Does anyone has the same problem?

 

@rhaps 

Spoiler

They are so cute! Argghhhhh hahahaa.. I love her when she talk back to NQ. 

She knows him so well.

@UnniSarah, thanks for the welcome chingu. ^_^ I started watching this yesterday and I really enjoy the story so far. I like that the story have many diverse characters involving at least three peoples, Tang,  Xiling (I think that’s how it’s spelt lol) and the defeated Yan. It certainly makes the story feel grand with all the politics, plots and pugilist world. I like that kind of backdrop.

 

However, besides several interesting characters like the gang leader, I have a burning curiosity about Sang Sang, Ning Que and the Xiling second prince. I’d like to know why Ning Que cannot cultivate or rather why his points are sealed and if he’ll manage to overcome this. I’d also like to know why Sang Sang periodically suffer from cold chills. As to the second prince from Xiling, I’m simply curious about him.

 

I haven’t watched episode 12 yet because Viki didn’t finish the subtitles the last time I checked.

@celebrianna... I too am curious about the Xiling Second Prince. Sadly he really believes in the Heavenly Light. His belief is so strong in what he fights for. I pity him for living in a place where everyone is trying to kill him and I hope he gets stronger

I wasn’t sure if he would because there has been fantasy stories where the main character seriously lack talent throughout but his ability to “influence” others was his passability for being a hero.

 

@UnniSarah, at least he seem to have that arrogant female warrior now. Still, if all those powerful men are after his life I’m not sure how long he will last.

Ning Que can't cultivate because most people simply can't. In this world, most people's points are sealed, thus only few become masters. He's really just an ordinary guy besides his strong will. As for unblocking his points or not , just wait for ep 15.

I finished watching episode 12 and I have two questions.

 

How did Chen Jia save Long Qing? Did the flower bloom from her power or was it something Long Qing did? I’m confused because Chen Jia seem to tell Long Qing that he saved himself because his light caused the flower to blossom off the dead tree.

 

Another question I have is when the red clad female warrior seem to imply to Long Qing that the attack on the Peach Blossom Hall was an inside job. Then he seemed to come to a realization and looked up the mountain. Was she implying that Chen Jia could not be trusted or someone else?

 

Sang Sang is so adorable. I wish she had a bigger role in the story.

After watching the special episode I realized that General Lin is Fu Yao’s handsome daddy. :lol: Just wait until Ning Que find out the reason for the slaughter of the General’s family. 

I can't wait for him to find out too @celebrianna

Spoiler

This special episode should have aired in my opinions. The chinese has to many restriction on what can air or not.  What do you think of the Grand Priest of Light? Was he right to do wha he tdid. This slaughter of an entire household was a waste since they never got the child they were looking for? 

Another thing that bothers me is the Rumor that the Princess will cause chaos for the kingdom?? I really hate superstitions. They cause so much destructions in their wake and later on you find out it was B.S

Now we know the King knows his wife's real identity and he is a smart King. He learns and wants his people to be at peace. I can't quite figure out the Queen. At times I feel she has feelings for her brother and that she loves the KING and his children. But in an earlier scene it felt like she didn't love the Princess at all. I hope we get to find out the truth.

i actually enjoyed The Legend of Chusen.

 

 

Best song and video for the show so far love this song and this show is just going to get more epic.. so exciting.

I admit I was really upset after watching their whole plot to slaughter the general and his household all instigated by the Grand Priest. I’m trying not to burn with hatred about the grand priest because characters like these are many times never punished because of their standing as revered leaders acting for the greater good. However, I hope that general and the emperor’s brother meet terrible ends. 

 

So it seems like Long Qing is the Yan prince’s younger brother. I didn’t realize that because I thought he was the second prince of Xiling which I considered a different state. 

 

The empress does seem as though she likes the emperor and his kids but who knows when it comes to politics. She did say early on that the emperor would protect her if the princess and her people wanted to get rid of her but I remember the general responded that the emperor cannot even fend for himself.

You're not the only one who has a problem pronounciating -Ichtyosaur- *lol*. Is that a fish from dinosaur era? :P

 

About CM :

 

Like I said, I skipped some parts in the novel bcause the novel was very long and I was impatient, mostly about Long Qing and other supp roles. But I did skim through the parts that I missed and I didnt remember about CM and his rebellion. I thought that I missed it, but it turned out that it was indeed only in the drama.

I can only say that the drama made him looked kinda weak and...dumb?, ) which is different with his little version in the prologue episode. I was impressed by him when he was brought to the palace and being questioned by the Tang Emperor. But then, the rebellion was a careless plan. If he really cared about the Princess, then why didnt he warned his men NOT to kill her? Let's say that his men were far away from the royal family/officials, but at least they could see that it was a GIRL and wasnt the Emperor?

And I appreciate him to run and warn her, because that was indeed too suspicious. I consider that as him being cared about her, so that he wouldnt care that the plan would be exposed (btw, that just showed that he didnt have any plan B,  in case the assasination failed). 

So, I agree with the King (?) of Yan. CM is kinda useless :P

Then whats the reason to kill the household if the baby not even there. Also not a big fan of Long Qing yet i just dont really like him or his light bunch .

 

One thing i loved about the drama is the emperor is not the typical stupid emperor he seems to know everything which i like , i also love NQ's eyebrows when he does that look :3

@Wotad I love that the Emperor of Tang isn’t stupid and knows what is going on in his territory. I believe that is why Fu Zi chose him because he wasn’t greedy, craving power and believes in Justice. 

Spoiler

I love what the Emperor told his daughter about wanting her happiness over anything. He talk about the losing so many children and that the rest remaining are very precious to him. Then we get a flashback from the time the Princess’s mom dies and tel her not to let anyone else take the throne but protect it for her son. But we all can see the Prince is useless and a bully. He would even try to bully a girl that his sister invited to celebrate her birthday. We also find out that the Emperor doesn’t celebrate it because that is the day her mom died. I take it as he truly loved his last empress but did his duty by remarrying. I don’t understand why the princess is so blind by it all.  I think this marriage was of a political nature but grew to love or understanding. We also know present Empress saved his life.

@rhaps @Wotad

Spoiler

The baby did come from the General’s household. Remember the babe was just conceived and the midwife was told to kill the baby. She couldn’t kill the baby so she sold the baby. In return of saving the baby , she was killed. The correct scene is The Son of Hades Tripp’s arrived at the General’s house and the midwife walked at the exact time. She tired to renters as she told them she is the midwife. They let her go. As she is walking to her destination she told the baby to be quiet and then arrived at carriage and gave the baby to mystery person. Then she was paid. While walking and counting her money , The General’s troop was finished killing everyone at the house and was riding away as they trampled her to the ground until she died.  Smh smh smh
