@lan_lan Gotcha. I was really looking forward to see that tie kiss scene today though.../cries a river. 

 

So where can i watch the subbed eps other than on Netflix?? And do these sites have the TV version or the web/netflix version?? You can tell how desperate I'm today....this is really bad.

I want to know why he was grumpy for most of 26. Lol. And I so want to know what Shan Cai said to him right before that tie kiss....she definitely said something that made him dumbfounded. Lol. These two are definitely going on a lot of dates...LOL. Not at all complaining my blood sugar might have reached an new high....haha

Hello guys. Sorry i just want to share my random thought here, because idk where else i can :lol: i was too young when MG 2001 came out and i only watched HYD and BOF. I can't not compare things so forgive me if it sounds annoying to the fans. Essay alert, not really accurate since i don't really remember the other versions plot so well. 

 

 


-I like the idea to remove all the bullying and showing off power/wealth things. It makes me easier not to cringe, unlike the other versions lol. 

- i like that no one is too cruel, or too creepy. It's more realistic because HYD and BOF problems were too much to handle for normal high school students. As if they're already sure it's their partner to get married with.  

- I like Lei the most compared to Jihoo and Rui. He was honest to SC that he still liked Jing. He even said to DMS' mom that he'd be SC's best friend forever. He's not an extreme guardian angel who popped up everytime Jandi was in danger like Jihoo, but still being there as best friend whom you can talk to. He always gave DMS and SC space to settle their problems. I love him! He deserved his best girl idk who it is. 

-I also like the friendship between F4 the most here. Xie Men and Micuo char is important for the relationship, i don't mind for their lacking bg story. 

- Do Ming Si looks, no need to explain, girls know it. Sanchai's face reminds me of Makino and her hair's like Jandi. She's cute at first but later i get annoyed by her character.

- yes because it frustates me everytime she said she doesn't like DMS, she always denied.

- it took her sooo long to finally accept DMS's heart after how many times DMS sacrificed his life for SC and dying of his own jealousy towards ton of guys confessed to SC lol. 

- the kor and jpn version made the fiancee appearance so miserable for Jandi/Makino character but here i really thing it's necessary to push SC. Even after the fiancee gave DMS up to SC, SC still denied it. The F3 "so done" reactions is me. I get that somebody said it's understandable, knowing DMS personality.

But how she didn't trust DMS after his mom announce the engagement was frustrating me. 

Compared to other versions, DMS here was the quickest who trusted to SC when the rumor spread (picture of SC slept with the club guy). Idk if SC here is strong or stubborn. 

- in other version i watched, the evil mom came after the two were together. But here, i'm still in ep 22, i think it's the start of their true relationship?

- It's really sweet when Domyouji encouraged Makino not to give his mom up easily, to win TOJ competition. That was really really hard how her family and friends were ruined because of the mom. While the cooking competition to SC was not related to DMS's mom at all, she almost gave up because of the competitor. She also took the challenge to pay her debt and for her own cook experience. It's realistic to me. 

- I'm still impressed by how JPN vers resolved the amnesia arc at the almost end. It's really beautiful how they were stucked in storm, reenacted the iconic elevator scenes. And here MG already used that snow scene in the middle of their normal fight, not for memorable event. 

-Despite how unrealistic it was, up until now the chemistry of Domyouji-Makino still wins for me :P

Idk if it will change after couple of episodes when SC opens her feeling to DMS. I hope in the next i see progression when she finally fight back to DMS mom, for her feeling to DMS, not only for her pride.

@kokodus As far as I know, all those sites take their subs from Netflix.  I've been watching it with subs in my language.  I haven't seen it with original English subs from anyone else.  

 

This is what happened:

Spoiler

He was upset the whole episode because he was concerned about what his mom did the night before to SC but she wouldn't talk about it to him. So he basically spent the whole date doing things with her to make her feel better.  When they were at the Rabit Hole he started talking about moving out on his own and she was trying to talk him out of it.  He thinks that's the only way to stand up to his mother.

 

I've translated their conversation starting from when they were holding hands by the river.

 

SC: I'm not a 3 year old (referring to the handholding)

MS: In my eyes, there's no difference between you and a 3 year old.  You both need watching over.

SC: Don't be so dramatic.  When did I ever need someone to watch over me?

MS: At any moment.  There's not a minute that I don't worry about you.

SC: Not true.  My parents went back to the village and I'm left alone in Shanghai, but I'm still living well.  I'm working part time to support myself.  Doing all kinds of jobs, being your housekeeper, not letting anyone criticize me.  Being independent has been no problem for me. 

MS: Then how much longer are you planning to be self reliant?  In your eyes, am I not worth leaning on?

SC: That's not it.  

MS: Then why are you hiding it from me?  You think I don't see it?  That you're actually unhappy?

SC: I'm sorry. I just feel... these are my problems, it doesn't concern you.

MS: That's right.  No matter what problems you face, it never concerns me.  It's like you don't even need me.

SC: Daoming Si, that's not my intention. Do you still not get it?

MS: Isn't it you that don't get it?  I just worry about you.  It has nothing to do with you having to be a strong woman.

SC: I just don't hope that you will move out of your house.

MS: This girl... can't you see that I really want what's best for you?

SC: I do know. 

MS: Then why are you still being like this?

SC: We are a couple.  Our sacrifices should be equally divided.  If I rely on you too much then we would lose our equal footing.  I know me being this way isn't lovable at all.  Stubborn and uncontrollable.  But... I wish you would accept me as I am.  Also, the thought that because of me you're willing to move out... makes me really touched.  I'm really very very very very happy.  That's why.........(grab, kiss :wub:)  I'm going home now :)

Her voiceover as she's running away: I am Dong Shancai.  Not some weak girl that won't survive with no one's protection.  But, Daoming Si, thank you.

 

 

If you want any other scenes translated, let me know :)

 

After that bed scene I just had to go and make this lol

Spoiler

DjhbQ2oU0AACU8s.jpg

 

Oh and also after having my fill of SiCai scenes, I didn't mind so much rewatching the full scenes of Meizhou with his girl at the bar anymore.  It was funny how he slapped the older guy's hand away.  These F4 are all too cute.

 

Bonus haunted house date, manga version:

@kokodusRemember in the beginning how I said Netflix was behind by a good 15-20 minutes because of the inconsistent airing length of the live version?  Well since Netflix has kept up their daily 45 minutes segment, they've managed to catch up and surpassed the live version.  I noticed last week's episode 20 aired an extra 10 minutes that wasn't in the live episode 20.  I've already seen the live episode 26 and comparing it to where Netflix is at on episode 25 there should be a good 20+ minutes of footage that would be shown on Netflix to fill its 45 minutes that wasn't shown in the live episode.  I wonder if this has anything to do with its delay.  I hope they won't wait until Monday or worse Wednesday to upload or something.  

 

@rimjaycHappy to spread the cute :D

 

In the meantime here's more Dylan/MG related interviews while we wait.  It sounds like he's already got the next drama planned.

 

Bang on!.. even the subbed version has the complete scene with DM going over to SC's place and bringing her home.. but in the raw version, that entire arc was missing

Bottom line, this guy is the next lee min ho..

 

BoF changed his destiny.. this will change his.. and i mean not just china famous but internationally super duper famous (i don't think there is any chinese actor who is crazy famous internationally.. japanese and koreans and even taiwanese are but chinese not there yet)

Hmmn...I thought in manga he gets back together with Jing in the end? But yeah, in most of the drama versions, he's all alone. I would love to see Lei get together with Xiaozi character as i always thought they had a common ground to build on. I could really feel it in the Korean version. But chance of that happening is probably zero.

Hmm going by korean version, Jiang comes back to Lei wanting a romantic relationship but he doesn't yield.. they stay as friends

I think Lei's character is exactly that.. (either with losing parents backstory or autism in this case).. he gets attached emotionally very intensely and its not easy to move him on from there.. e.g. jiang is some 15+ yr crush

 

***************************************

subs are out for 25.. and subs for 26 should be out in 15-20 minutes

Now I know who to thank for this scene as well as the rest of the lovey dovey scenes. I like this director lol. And aw YY was feeling shy. 

 

 

New previews for next week. Looks like I will have to save them all to binge in one go on the weekend, because my heart won’t be able to take it after the sugar we got this week.

Someone compiled all the scenes we’ve not seen yet from the MVs into one vid. 

 

 

 

I love watching them BTS they are soo cute. Honestly, Dylan is just too adorable, like he really gets into character and he just makes the scene amazing and gives you butterflies. :blush::love:

 

I am really looking forward to next week's episodes and see what will happen between the two of them. It's obvious Shancai is going to go through troubles because of the mother, but I hope we get that bus scene, where he's chasing the bus and she comes back to him.

 

@kokodus I don't have episode 26 on Netflix, too. That's the episode that I wanna watch.

I want to see him in a Wuxia now his looks as a prince.. oh my. 

 

Trust me, after he succeed in this one. We'll see more of Dylan's acting and hopefully he gets to play in a Wuxia drama. :lol: I want him in like a hot CEO with his straight hair. He looks very very handsome with his straight hair.

You're welcome!  I've lost count of how many times already and there's more to come it seems.   Lucky us! Hahaha although he's not built like the typical korean or taiwanese actors, it's okay.  Fortunately for them Dylan's not shy so they really capitalized on him showing skin.  

 

@enigmatic_zephy No offense to his fans but I've always felt Lee Min Ho is overrated.  But for sure BoF blew him up out of this atmosphere internationally lol.  And BoF didn't even have the broadcasting benefit of Netflix back then.  So I can't even imagine what will happen to Dylan now that Netflix is shown all over the world.  I just hope he'll be able to manage his fame graciously and wisely.  Sometimes rising too fast could have it's downfall as well.

lol.. me too.. he is although i really liked him in his initial days.. however, i don't know how to put it nicely.. like he is charming as an actor but i don't find him handsome at all.. and heirs and dramas post that haven't given him a chance to shine as an actor.. shine as a celeb but not actor

 

BoF has been good to every DS in every adaptation.. and that's that.. i think Lei too.. has gained stardom in every adaptation.. the other is itazura na kiss :) 

 

and wel none of BoF folks have met their downfall (because of bad projects or poor acting or celeb status.. unless htey did sthg stupid in personal life)

Is Dylan mixed? He doesn't look like typical Chinese guys at all. He looks like Eurusia?? Boy he is tall and skinny!! He as DMX is so funny! Love when he is angry, sad, happy or childish. Love it when he told and punch SC friend exbf when they went on double date. Love Ximen stood up and give the guy a punch too.

Yes- He's definitely still insecure about the Lei/Shan Cai relationship. I don't think that fully goes away until the very end of the drama when Shan Cai accepts his marriage proposal. (Hopefully we'll see that in this version)

 

Hmmn...I thought in manga he gets back together with Jing in the end? But yeah, in most of the drama versions, he's all alone. I would love to see Lei get together with Xiaozi character as i always thought they had a common ground to build on. I could really feel it in the Korean version. But chance of that happening is probably zero.

 

 

 Thanks for sharing that. This director is working hard for the money! Thank you/ Xie Xie Ni Director!   I didn't realize that Si was Dylan Wang's debut role. Wow! He's doing a great job.  You can see the raw talent-once he has taken some acting classes and gotten more training, he'll really take off I think. Of course the whole cast are all newbies, so I appreciate that this director is really mentoring everyone. So many directors don't really do a good job when it comes to working with inexperienced actors. It's interesting to me how the role of Daoming Si is such a star making role for the actors that play him. I think for almost every version- Japan, Taiwan, Korea, and now this Chinese version, this has been the role that has put each actor to stardom. 

 

 

Yes- I agree with you. I'm sure this was an attempt to give Meizou story depth and for him to have obstacle to overcome. It was just very badly written. 

 

 

Yes, there are a lot of cute moments in this version.  I'm disappointed that we'll have to wait for a real confession from Shan Cai, since that is something that really bothers me in dramas when things aren't balanced in relationship, but I'm definitely along for the ride!

 

 

I'd love a proper confession of feelings from Shan Cai too. I hope that we get one eventually and that it is awesome!

 

 

Yes, there is another girl later on when Si has amnesia named Yesha. I'm praying really hard that her time on the drama will be relatively brief (just 2 or 3 episodes max), and not like Meteor Garden 2 where she was the whole drama. Please dramagods, make her time short! Don't drag it out!

 

Yes, hopefully in this version, Daomingsi will not fall for that random girl when he will have amnesia and it will be just 2-3 episodes just like in Japanese & Korean version. unlike the Taiwanese version which had the worst season 2, that was traumatizing  to say the least :sweatingbullets:

OMG! I know. I was literally frustrated in the Taiwanese version that Daoming Si lost his memories for a whole season. It was soo frustrating, like you didn't even get to see their love blossom at all. It just made you cried and felt hurt for Shancai, because she did everything to find him, while watching Lei help her but suffers. It was a heartbreaking season for the Taiwanese version for me.

 

I wasn't upset at the Japanese or Korean version. I was glad they made the amnesia short. It's a total of 48 episodes and I'm sure the amnesia is going to last a bit longer, but don't drag it out like the Taiwanese one. My fingers are crossed.

Thanks for the update @lan_lan I just finished watching ep. 25 on Netflix and ep. 26 has not been posted on Netflix, so I think you are right  that  the Netflix episode content is now ahead of the live airing content and we won't see any episodes until whatever content  is shown in China first.  I guess we will have to wait until next Wednesday to see Ep. 26 on Netflix--aargh!  I do hope that this will be the last adjustment for Netflix schedule and that they won'r be ahead of China after this so we can go back to 6 episodes a week.

 

Ep. 25: Very disappointed for the Meizou storyline. I'm glad that the character is getting his own story, but gosh, do I find it boring. And I don't think this storyline is giving much insight into Meizou's character so far. If anything, we are seeing more into Caina's character. Was this storyline in the original manga?  Or is this something that the writers of the drama made up? I hate to say this but I hope this side story wraps up quickly.

I agree with everything you said!!!!!! I also felt that her standing up against mom is mostly because of her pride. I bet she would've done the same thing if it's Qing he's mom. LOL. I don't know...sighhh. I'll also hold the Japanese version high as of now because it gave me all sorts of feels and the ending was near perfect. LOL. This show has huge possibilities to surpass the J version if they give us an ending like that. Shan Cai is really frustrating at times, even though I kinda understand her. Atleast she is open to consider a serious relationship with him now. That itself is a huge step, I guess. But next week is going to be painful. The epic bus chasing scene....sigh, Shan Cai, the Noble idiot is going to appear, I can't even....I think it's more like cowardice. Tsk. 

 

@lan_lan wow even the scary house date is from manga.....amazing. I wonder why other versions didn't make use of this cute scene...tsk tsk. Was it there in the Taiwanese version???
