[Mainland Chinese Drama 2019] The Legends 招摇

I’m really looking forward to next weeks episodes. From the trailer it looks like Liu Su Ruo Has mind controlled Liu Cang Ling and will use him to lure Zhi Yan to Jian Xin Men ( the sect she used to belong to) by writing a letter telling her that her father is still alive. Zhao Yao tells her that the letter is suspicious but Zhi Yan says that Cang Ling would never lie to her.

 

Zhao Yao tells her they need to bring Li Chen Lan with them for safety, but since he is still angry at Zhao Yao she has to flatter him to make him agree to come with them. Looks like she tells him she loves him and he asks how much does she love him?Her reply is as much as the hawk loves the sky and the wild horse loves the grasslands (so over the top!)

 

Looks like Li Chen Lan will figure out a way to see Zhao Yao even in the daytime when she is supposed to be invisible. The trailer shows him pretending not to see her even when she is waving her hand in his face and getting really close in the carriage (can’t wait for that scene). One of the lines she mutters in the carriage is “It’s not like I haven’t seen a handsome young man before “LOL

Looking forward for when she has to eat her own words. B)

The sub of this beautiful drama is taken up by the PP blog.  The 1st episode is subbed already.:kiss_wink: She will do it a slow as she is also doing some other dramas side by side.  So please enjoy whenever she uploads the videos and please don't pressure her for subsequent episodes in the comments.:heart:

https://productiveprocrastination.site/2019/02/22/eng-subthe-legends-ep-1/

I think the 2nd link is working as of now.

Edit: I am watching these two leads in "Untouchable Lovers".  Bai lu as Huo Xuan/Le Yun is superb.  Xu Kai's is in support role as Shen Yu.  I am impressed with BL so much:kiss_wink:

BTW the new m/v is so good and the ost's is also beautiful

 

Thanks for that info.  This drama is also now being subbed in English at the Official YouTube channel by a group of subbers. They have finished Ep. 1-3 so far. Here's the link:

Hopefully, PP & YT groups will collaborate together.

I found the English subbed version of 宿命 (Fate), it’s much better than my translation would have been. Except for the line 宿命里颠倒 would not really translate to “Karma is confusing”, a better translation would have been “Fate is perverse”. 

 

Since the subs don’t show up here, i’ll retype the lyrics again

 

每一个选择 

Each choice we make

都必定有理由 

Is bound to have a reason

痛苦了之后 

After suffering 

成仙或成魔

Will I become an immortal or a demon?

行至山水穷 

Even walking through the mountain and rivers

也进退两难守 

I am still stuck in a dilemma 

只留下哀愁 

Only leaving behind sorrow 

看命运造化弄 

As I watch fate make a fool of me

世间 冷暖都尝遍 

Experiencing the ways of the world

情总看不穿剪不断 

Yet always unable to cut or break my affection 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

离合悲欢嗔痴贪念 

Meeting and separating, sorrow and joy, anger and longing 

我在 苦等着诺言 

I’m here bitterly waiting for our promise

任泪珠亲吻发丝线 

Allowing tears to kiss my hair

Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

这一别又几经流年 

Just how many years will this separation be again?

每一个选择

宿命里颠倒 

Karma is confusing (better translation: Fate is perverse)

黑色的剑鞘染上苍老 

The black sword sheath stained by time

夜风中呼啸 

In the midst of the night winds howling

爱恨相互吞噬拥抱 

Love and hate engulfing and embracing each other

挣脱了命运 

Struggling free from fate

不过是徒劳 

Yet it is futile 

岁月何等飘渺 

The passing years are hazy

若从头来过 

If we could start over

舍天下陪君逍遥

I would give up the world to be free with you.

@pad-hari I believe the video comes from episode 19. Li Chen Lan back is hurt when he was trying to take Liu He sword for Zhao Yao. I think the first time we see his back hurting is episode 14?! It has not yet healed ever since.

 

One thing that I like from this adaptation is that it elaborate more on Li Chen Lan injury than the novel (understandable since the novel is from Zhao Yao POV). I get the feel that the injury is getting worse here in the drama (based on my limited mandarin ....). Right now Zhao Yao is still torn between worry or happy that he got injured. I hope when Zhao Yao is finally sure of her feeling, we can see her caring side more. In the novel, the plot moving very fast. I am not satisfied with their loving time and they have separated again .....:wacko:

This scene was in a past episode( ep19 ). Li Chen Lan was injured getting Zhao Yao the sword she requested from the magical island in the middle of the sea.

 

It took  me a while to figure this out but,  regarding why Jiang Wu gave Zhao Yao/Zhi Yan some rocks, in literature  a strong love is often compared to being stable as a rock. The handkerchief with embroidered mandarin ducks Zhi Yan made for him is supposed to represent romantic love. Zhi Yan probably thought Jiang Wu was (falsely) promising to be her rock so she (falsely ) replied that she reciprocated his feelings!

Because it is a cheesy romance meets fantasy. Best of both worlds. :glasses: For me it even feels like reading a Manga. How can someone not fall for it? :lol:

Keeping up with all 3 editing formats of Zhao Yao is extremely stressful. I highly recommend you to live stream the tv broadcast if you want episodes with the FULL content. The TV episodes have a couple minutes more than the DVD or WEB. Usually these ending scenes will be pick up at the beginning in the next episode of WEB format. DVD has its own pace, so it might not necessarily be at the start of the episode. Last week, the cut out part in ep 18/19 of WEB format can be found in the DVD ver (8:30~15:00). 

 

This time, the scene with Mo Qing stepping on 冰葫芦 bing hu lu in episode 20/21, unless I am terribly mistaken, was completely edited out in YOUTUBE VER of ep 20. In 21, if you subtract the scene with QQX, the episode started with ZY + ZY returning to their bedroom. 

The IQIYI Ver of ep 20 Web and ep 21 DVD  included this scene.

The full video is on TV channel's official Weibo

 

tumblr_inline_pnhwmjytnH1t3sjn4_540.png

 

 

Friendly reminder,  there are total of 4 different previews for tmr ep. 

#1 TV & #2 Iqiyi ep 23: battling the anti-demonic-energy/golden sword relic

#3 iqiyi ep 24:  Doc South treating MQ's wounds 

#4 TV(?): Zhi Yan finds Liu Cang Ling and ends up getting strangled.

@DontEatMyKimchi This makes me worried for the versions that are getting subbed. Blows my mind that such pivotal scenes are cut out of the WEB versions. 

 

Thanks so much for your posts! Very helpful and informative!

@BikiLee 

If Viki has it, they usually will subbed DVD version.

Example : Ashes of Love and Fighter of Destiny.

Currently, the subber can only sub on YT 

 

@DontEatMyKimchi Thankss :D... 

But sigh..these different version cut is making me annoyed... lols...

 

@angelangie :D awwwwww do I need to "prick" your interest again???
