I know! But even if it’s blurred out by being in the mirror (the details ain’t as vivid), it’s still smoking hot! Love the way he caress her as they locked lips xD because of how hot it is... I kinda forgive them a bit lol :lol: also we have the leak of the actual footage! I’ll live if I get to see it on YouTube in an mv somewhere :lol:

@Alila Nguyen: those stilled images are not enough for me! :lol: I wanna see the whole trying to take off clothes while kissing. 

@xienrue: I wouldn’t count his cape off as being doing the deed but maybe. Sigh. One thing I was laughing at is where did all the other guards go? LCL was the only one guarding the entrance and they kissed right by the door without anyone seeing? :wub: :lol:

So what version is the one on chinaq.tw? I watch the episodes there and they are more complete than the YouTube version. I thought they were from iqiyi

Same here. Normally I use a VPN client but many videos at IQiyi don't play when they notice I use one. Probably it would play if I get an account but I can't set up an account even via mobile since the connection is not secure with "new" https standarts.
Sites like Weibo notice any VPN client and blocking you out. Probably there are few VPN clients who aren't get noticed but I prefer to use one that is legal in my country.

 

I usually use unblock youku to watch iqiyi, but the extension only works 70% of the time. I turn to hola if unblock doesn't work. Hola slows my internet speed. I made an account and then I had no problem going on weibo without a vpn.

In the novel, Zhi Yao threw a big feast after sealing away LMX so everyone was busy partying. Except for LCL. Such a good boy. 

It would be nice to at least see how the cape came off. TOO SHORT TOO SHORT. Wished the drama spent less time with the flashback and more time on the kiss scenes :triumph:

Lol! The power of gift/mv :lol:

 

the guards - I think ZY said that they have a 3 days feast, and because of that, everyone is like super drunk/no need to do their duty. However, MQ isn’t into it, so he continues with his duty

 

well, I’m gonna say by how tender and comfortable he is with her in the morning, they did the deed lol! Like seriously, you can see how the weight on his shoulder suddenly got lift off. From doesn’t dare to look straight into her face to lovingly, gently touch her face, he’s totally seeing her as his wife. What killed me though is how after he realised she doesn’t remember, so he endured the suffering of a broken heart in silence. He didn’t cry, just dutifully do his job, and somehow that just hurt so much :bawling: poor our little puppy :bawling: good thing though is that now ZY realised how much he loves her, and won’t turn her back on that, and decided to go full steam on loving him :wub: hopefully more kissing scenes!

Tonight episodes are worth of me staying late:). But the waiting game is re-started .....:tears: Sigh ....

 

@Alila Nguyen I agree with you that the drunk kissing scene is hot. Really like how Mo Qing hand moves around Zhao Yao body. And I think the drama gives us the hint that they did the deed because in the morning we see that Mo Qing outer clothes are off his body. By the way, what is this leak of footage that you are talking about?

 

Next week seems interesting with Yuan Ji out of prison. I wish that the drama made Zhao Yao give him the punishment. Now Zhao Yao already realize her feeling toward Li Chen Lan, it would not be logical if she can endure Yuan Ji hurts Li Chen Lan again and again, especially in Li Chen Lan current body condition.

 

Lol I was hoping there is a vid leak after all those high res stills :P it seems like the review suggest the maid guard saved MQ instead, which put her back into the good side of MQ to give ZY more troubles in the future. From the review, it seems ZY has to endure some pains to get back to MQ? I wonder what’s that about

They nerfed the fight with LMX. Perhaps they spend too much budget on the relic arc. 

  Reveal hidden contents

LMX IS STILL ALIVE. I guess the rumours on weibo were true. There will be a 3rd LMX revival arc.

I feel like the TV ver cut some kiss scenes. The actors + ress did a good job but ITS TOO SHORT!! Have to check out the DVD vers later.  

 

TV preview 1 +2 

Web Preview 1

Web preview 2

 

BTS- kiss goodbye

Full kiss scene cut 1080p

 

 

Full res

 

 

It looks like the pictures of drunken kiss scene didn’t come from the video.  They have different pose when MQ caress ZY’s face in the morning. Also the video is dark. But the pictures is bright.

Your words here make me realize that ......:bawling: So devoted and selfless, sigh.....

 

In the preview, we can take that the drama will deviate from the novel regarding on how Zhao Yao comes back to live. Based on the preview, I should say that I prefer the drama version more. Because with making Zhao Yao needs to endure some pain to be able to come back, it shows her determination to come back to Li Chen Lan side. She can just let go and decide to stay dead. In her point of view, Luo Ming Xuan is dead already so her business in living world is more or less finished. But she choose to come back still because of Li Chen Lan. Hope we will have some hot kissing scene after the couple is reunited.

 

And I am happy that Lin Zhi Yu is back to the picture. Please let Zhao Yao returns to Wan Lu Men the exact moment Lin Zhi Yu is about to touch Li Chen Lan. Let Zhao Yao sees that and then doing something to assert her claim on Li Chen Lan :lol:

 

Positive note: I really like the acting up until last night episodes. Xu Kai surprises me really since as far as I know he is quite new to this acting department and this is the first time he plays as male lead. Bai Lu is very great as Zhao Yao. Her Zhao Yao can be shy like a girl falling in love for the first time but still retain the strength and boldness. Kudos to both of them!

BTS KISS SCENE :blush:  Thats lot of lipstick smudging.

The wallpapers are onset stills. These 4K photo taken by photographer at the time of filming.

I pretty sure this drama only filmed during the day time, when the sun was out. Thus, 'night time'  is the result of the exposure being tampered with throughout entire zhao yao drama. If you take a close look, sometimes their heads are glowing against the background in the kiss scene video.

It happens a bunch of times in this particular drama where sometimes the 'darkness' in between frames don't even match up. For example, when the sun sets, and ZY becomes visible the scene, looks like it is night time. However, a couple seconds later while still in the same 'time zone', it's bright again.

 

Here are some examples.

In the drama of this scene they were looking at the moon and ZY wanted MQ to give her a sword.  It was day time on set.

Do we know if they post any spoiler regarding the final episode yet? I am so worried if it'll be a happy or sad. :( 

Happy.The novel writer helped out the script writers. It is IMPOSSIBLE THAT THE DRAMA WILL HAVE A SAD ENDING as the author ONLY writes happy endings. I have not read every single one of her books but I have read most of them,  they are ALL extremely sweet happy endings. 

 

The every last lines of novel: 

ZY "your son is too naughty" 

MQ "then throw him away, we can make another one"

@DontEatMyKimchi Thanks for the BTS scene. Do you know what the director say to them that makes Bai Lu laughing out loud?

 

And I just re-read your post regarding Luo Ming Xuan 2nd revival. Hmm, seems the drama will add scene when the immortals sect succeeded in catching Li Chen Lan and then Zhao Yao comes to save him. And perhaps she asked Jiang Wu for help, hence she holds his sword at that picture. Very interesting.

BTS Kiss scene #1 (the one I already posted)

  • director deciding on the position while MQ screamed the  "AHH!" 
  • D "kiss for a sec" (as in practice/positioning) "one more take" (to the staffs) // ZY giggles because she left a lip stick stain on MQ
  • 0:28 D "lets do a rehearsal, like kiss for real" // ZY burst out in laughter // MQ asks for mouthwash
  • 0:56 D "ok ok ok" // MQ "you changed MY lipstick to YOUR lipstick" (mm MQ honey, shouldn't it be the other way around, but the way he said this was soo cute)
  • Staff wiping MQ's lip "all the lip skin was kissed away" // MQ "my first on screen kiss is gone" 

 

BTS KISS SCENE #2

  • MQ 1:07 "I felt like I ate 100pound of chilli peppers" 

 

The BTS has better editing than the drama itself. The actors, directors, and the on set staffs did such a good job with the drama production, it is SO SO SO sad to see it fall apart in the hands of the editing team. :triumph:

PS.   一夜荒唐  vs 一夜荒 (the title for the BTS)

一夜荒(yi ye huang táng) this is a substitute code in a lot of novels instead of saying 'they did the deed'. The direct translation of this phrase is "scandalous one night". 

 

一夜荒糖 (yi ye huang táng - same) is a pun on the word tang. This tang  means 'candy'. Like how English fans would say 'such a sweet scene', the Chinese fans would usually say 'they are handing out candy'.  Therefore this phrase would mean "one night of sweetness"

Thanks @DontEatMyKimchi! I loved those BTS clips!

 

It seems like it was longer than what we got in the drama. Will we get one from Mo Qing’s POV (like in the epilogue of the novel) because I didn’t get a clear look in the drama :joy:

Bai Lu is either so into character or she just likes teasing poor Xu Kai/Mo Qing even when they were just practicing. :lol:

Yeah, that's the reason I started reading the novel too, cause i heard there is going to be a happy ending! So I m keeping my fingers cross that the drama will follow!

 

It seems that these 2 eps have a focus on ZY noticing MQ's love for her. At the start of the battle with LMX, she said something along the line of "You always calmly do all these things (for me) in such a gentle manner without me knowing. All those years ago when I left to find him (LMX), what kind of feelings did you have then..."

 

ZY's words are getting sweeter and sweeter :D

Apparently there was a scene where Lin Zhi Yu handed the lighting sword to Luo Ming Xuan which lead to the speculations that ZY borrowed Jiang Wu's sword. I think Jiang Wu might have died at this point. After all, MQ descends to a demonic state after Jiang Wu awaken him with his 'last breath'.

 

tumblr_pnz9g7t2Xo1u1iqoao5_r2_500.jpg

tumblr_pnz9g7t2Xo1u1iqoao6_r1_500.jpg

Either way, Lin Zhi Yu is going to be the 'next' villain in the future arcs. LZY WAS SUPPOSE TO BE LOYAL TO ZY! AND LZY WAS A DUDE! Whatever. As long as ZY and MQ are together, they are free to change the plot to whatever they want.

@DontEatMyKimchi Thank you!!! Awwww, they are sooo cute:wub:.

And I start of getting bored of Zhao Yao getting saved over and over again by Li Chen Lan. Zhao Yao is not damsel in distress character, so she get to save Li Chen Lan for a change would be refreshing. I like it when two character equally powerful getting together; I have this dislike on damsel in distress characters (almost always found in main female character).

 

@miyaism Hahahahaha, in almost of every BTS that I have seen, I always see Bai Lu teasing Xu Kai. I get this feel that they very much enjoyed acting in a scene together.

Did you link the bts via a .cn or YouTube? I’m having trouble seeing anything .cn or weibo :(

I don’t mind more fillers as long as we get an equal amount of MQ and ZY together.

 

I really want to see a jealous Zhao Yao because there was none in the novel and she had no competition. Maybe a scene of ZY seeing Lin Zhi Yu getting close to her bae and being like he’s mine and no one can touch him. “I’ve already left my mark on those lips and sealed this deal so back off lady! He will be my responsibility!” :joy:  

 

 

@xienrue Yes, agreed!!! I love when costars have great chemistry off screen as well. I guess one thing is also because these two are under the same company so they are like really good friends/costars.

@Alila Nguyen 

Im pretty sure there will be youtube uploads later. The official youtube channel that handles the drama does upload BTS but MUCH LATER. I link the weibo ones because it is the fastest source. It much easier to find these things on weibo than it is on youtube. Maybe try the link again later? VPNs? but i have been getting by without a vpn despite being outside of china. 

How about you try downloading the video instead? Copy the link and google search some weibo to mp4 converter. Perhaps that might work? 

<converter> I tried with the link to the first BTS. It works. takes around 1min  to convert, then a link appears check on it, new tab appears with the video embedded. You dont even have to download it.

Bts 1 (link with weibo.com format)
