Hi, sorry for bothering, but do you know the link for tmopb? Can't find a translated version anywhere and I would hate to have to buy it on Amazon.

 

Also, I find it weird that c dramas are aired so late after they finish filming. I usually watch Thai dramas and korean dramas, and they air their dramas like a month or so after filming, and sometimes even air while still filming. Not like a whole year-2 year after filming.. it's a bid odd lol

It isn't weird at all. Many Dramas need lots of CG and a lot of scences are made in front of a green screen. Means lots of work for the specialists. Then it is the dubbing process who needs time and also the sound works. Chinese dramas often have very clear sound effects. And the editing. Korean Dramas who are made live on tape often have terrible editing, you even can see the cuts. When the Drama is popular enough to get a DC version, most of them are corrected. And normally it takes months until it comes out. My preorder of Love in the Moonlight took over one year but it was worth. Better sounds, scences I thought they would work out better with minor changes (lol...I was thinking a lot like the director) and way better CG. 

I prefer getting a well made Drama who had enough time to "ripe" instead of a hasty finished one by the demands of fans.

That is true. I never thought of that. Maybe because the Korean/Thai dramas I watch aren't fantasy, so they don't need the dubbing/CG. I also agree that the ones that that are pre produced and take longer to edit turn out better.. such as Defendants of The Sun. Thank you for explaining the process to me ^_^

Love reading the discussions here, especially from @redfoxprincess. Thanks a lot for sharing!

 

I’ve been watching videos of Vengo filming and I wonder why his hair is black. It reminds me of TMOPB when he descended to the mortal world as a king. From what I remember from PB, he had always maintained his white hair even when he impersonated as Xize in Aranya’s dream. The thing is, I am like FJ who prefer his white hair and I also kinda think he looked ugly when he was a mortal. :D

 

Also, how do you people convert the immortal’s age to a human’s age? I really find this interesting, including their sense of time. I can’t imagine staring at someone and wondering what to do next for half a day’s time. All those instances when the novel speaks of candle and tea time when describing the length of time, I simply shrugged it off. LOL

 

Amongst the one-liners in the novel, DH’s “I have never feared destiny and I certainly don’t need its charity.” is also my favorite. 

 

I have lots of favorite scenes. What comes foremost to my mind now is that scene at the holy Blue Sea when FJ bargained to dance for DH in exchange for seeing the divine Luan birds perform the 'One Hundred Birds Saluting the Phoenix' dance for her.

 

 

“The bright moon and stars illuminated the satiny background, their quiet glow shimmering across the Blue Sea. The divine birds perched quietly on the treetops. Soft music flowed from the harp as the red-robed maiden lithely danced to it. Under the moonlight, her long dark hair seemed to be coated with a layer of light. The sleeves concealing her face slowly moved away, revealing a beautiful face behind them. Her fingers came together to form two hibiscuses. When she raised her hands, her sleeves slid down and showed a pair of ivory arms. Her steps were as soft as ripples on a quiet night, and as exquisite as a blooming flower on the water.
Donghua missed a note. He had always known her to be beautiful, but never the sophisticated type. Her beauty was principally in her elegant and sunny demeanor. At this time, he discovered that her elegant face could actually be said to be dazzling. Whenever she wanted to please him, her gaze would so naturally become alluring. Of course he knew who had made her look this way. Even she might not know herself how enticing her gentle gaze could be.


The chord suddenly came to a halt. Fengjiu raised her head in confusion. Silence momentarily surrounded the terrace. At long last, she saw Dijun open his arms wide and call out to her in a hoarse voice, “Come over here.”


The way Dijun was sitting there beckoning her was simply too irresistible. Despite being a little suspicious, Fengjiu moseyed to him but without forgetting to complain: “Telling me to go, then telling me to come. Why do you always call me? Can't you come to me? And anyway, you're not allowed to squish my face anymore.”


Dijun readily agreed: “I won't.” “Are you sure?”


“I'm sure.”


Dijun really didn't squeeze her cheeks anymore. Instead, he pressed her straight onto the carpet. She let out a cry in surprise. At first, she was still concerned about letting the divine birds perform the 'One Hundred Birds Saluting the Phoenix' dance for her, thus she struggled away from his hold. But her strength wasn't as great as Dijun's after all. Soon, Dijun was furrowing his brow and even using that low deep voice that she loved so much to coax her. Her head was so dizzy with his bewitching ways that she let him do whatever he pleased. She even cooperated with him a little.”

 

 

It is so flirtatious and overly romantic :wub: This is also the scene when DH called himself as FJ’s husband and also made her call him husband. I’m smitten. 

 

I am very much looking forward to watch Reba dance as she is an excellent dancer. I pray she recovers soon. This girl has been accepting projects left and right, I wonder if she still get a decent rest in between. I’ve been her fan since TMOPB. Hers, Vengo and many others in TMOPB. 

I love this part of DH..he was sooo..mesmerized and dazzled by FJ..and the same time..he's sooo.. turned on:lol:

@jimmylyne If I may add, our Bai Feng Jiu is really talented to be able to attract the revered Dong Hua Dijun and twist him around her little fingers. I can totally relate how her mom was totally puffed up with pride upon knowing what big fish her daughter had baited. And at the same time, I understood the concern of her other elders who worried how they would come to her rescue later if she got into a fight with DH. 

 

That part where it was revealed that FJ had a husband then DH stepped out to fight for her was so monumental for me. I just had to shout a big yes! And kept smiling like a fool as I read on.

 

@Zelnk I just mentioned about missing silver-haired DH in my last post and voila you posted pics of him. Thank u.

It's so true..Our Xiao Bai was indeed talented, charming and beautiful.

 

"Without mentioning the lass's natural beauty, just her sweet little mouth is enough to make others happy. The happier FJ was, the sweeter she became. When she sweet talked she could really melt anyone's heart."

 

 With her personality and charismatic ..even the former Master of the universe..loveless,desireless emotionless..Dong Hua Dijun didn't stand a chance.:smiley:.

An excerpts from a book..where Elder fairy Fumi pour her heart out when she knows her one and only..beloved granddaughter married to a formidable powerful man.

 

"Tell me somethings, Jiu-er didn't look for a husband  so she didn't find anyone.But once she looked, she found such a formidable man. How will she have the upper hand over a husband like him from now on? Even if she swallowed her grief and come home crying, how could her family even back her up at that point? I had wanted to find her a comparable or slightly inferior household so that even in the event she suffered at her household's, family..Jiu-er could still have her grandfather backing. Now if she marrying into DH Dijun's household, where is she going to turn when she's being mistreated?"

 

Ps: I can imagine FJ grandmother totaly like this :sweatingbullets:...poor her:smiley:.

I’ve answered you on the TMOPB forum, but will write this here for anyone else wondering too. Please buy “To The Sky Kingdom” on Amazon, translated by Poppy Toland. There is NO free translated version of this book because the fan-translator deleted it and does not want it circulated. It wasn’t a good translation anyway. Spend a few bucks and buy an official copy on Kindle or whatever, and give the author her dues. The free translated version of The Pillow Book was commissioned by Tang Qi and had 3 translators, so it was done well and with permission. :)

Guess I will buy it after I finish reading The Pillow Book. 

Side note, one thing I am also really looking forward to (besides the actual drama) is the drama's ost. I find that osts from xianxias are hauntingly beautiful as I'm still listening to the ost from tmopb 1 month after watching it lol

A family of 3 

 

 

I hope it's after FJ woke up from her coma. I know some people like the way it ended in the book but I prefer they have more scenes afterwards. They deserve to have a happy life together and I want to see it. I don't want to imagine it.

Yes..me too.. I hope these scenes wasn't an imagination..I really wants to see DH Dijun bonded with his son Bai Gungun and beloved wife FJ after so many sad/misunderstanding/disasters things had happened.

Exactly my wish. I also want to see more scenes of their happy family life. FJ and DH were able to clear up their misunderstanding during the battle with Miaoluo. They stayed with each other till the end of it and father and son finally met. It is a perfect ending but my insatiable fan’s heart just keeps screaming for more. I don’t want to be left with my imagination of what if. I want a confirmation of their happy ending as a family, enjoying each other’s company. 

 

That’s why, thank you @arinoza for the pictures. You made me smile today.
