Haha, feeling a little inspired today. Ok, after this I have to be good and get back to work:naughty:

here's what the BTS says (again feel free to correct the translations). I love hearing Vengo's perspective of DJ - it gives us insights into what he feels and thinks while playing the role.

 

DH is an arrogant person/ strong personality, someone who is detached from the world. I portray him as someone with godly airs and with subtle expressions. I recall there is a Chinese saying – the more one speaks, the worse it gets, the more befuddled it becomes (my rough translation), and this is what can be used to describe the relationship (connection) between DH with FJ. The both of them go through many misunderstandings.

 

On Song Xuan Ren: He will love, he will take the initiative to obtain/fight for something, he is very affectionate/warm, very possessive – I love you, no one else can have you. This kind of love culminates in a tragedy…

 

On ChenYe – He is persistent. To revive Aranya, he is willing to be in a dream-world for a few hundred years, moving through a cycle. He shoulders all the responsibility, and the emotions/burden that he carries is too heavy.

 

XiZe – When DH takes on the role of Xize, this enables him to easily look for Aranya.

 

Reba – Actually, DH as XiZe turns out to a blessing. The both of them, as spouses, get to be together (which is unexpected) and their love is nurtured

 

About DH – He has an innocent, aloof personality. The portrayal of his character is the most, in terms of development and variety (range?). In his interactions/ relationship with FJ, I feel that he is like an ‘old child’, he feels jealousy and is obvious about it. When you add all these three people/ personalities together, I truly feel then only does it portray the real DH. For thousands of years, he has never met someone ‘right’ for him. When he does meet that person and realises how much that person has done for him, he become totally devoted to her. [in the last battle where they are both trapped together while fighting MiaoLuo, I (DH) have no way to send her out of the force field, and am reluctant to do so but I have no other alternative.

 

Reba: He is able to play the different roles, portray different emotions and this enables us to experience different reactions/feelings.

 

Vengo: Actually, a lot of people hold back from expressing their love/ emotions, and miss out on a lot of things, do be brave to love…[this part I especially treasured, as it's kinda like Vengo's advice to us viewers....]

@kdfan2014 Thanks for the video. I thought some of you might want to know what the director said, it's always nice to hear what he feels in producing the work. I am not proficient and had to use the dictionary to look up some words. For those who want to improve the translation, please feel free to do so. (I missed out a portion, the first time Reba and Vengo spoke because I thought it wasn't that insightful but feel free to translate)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

From the Director’s perspective, he said the book/story made him think a lot. From the time FJ was a baby fox till she went through all the tribulations/ hardships of loving DH. As for DH, it may not be that DH has developed/grown but how he has walked through each step from a deity/god to experiencing ‘humanity’ because of FJ.

 

The Director adds that DH in the mortal arc is an emperor and even though he feels great pain/internal conflict because of his love for FJ, he has to supress it for the greater good of the kingdom.

 

FJ returns from the mortal arc with injuries and she has decided to give up/ let it go…but then DH appears before her, behaves differently towards her and causes her to be confused. And then FJ enters Aranya’s realm

 

Reba: FJ is someone who has received much love, so she knows how to demonstrate/give love to others. Aranya however is different as she has never received love. So, she behaves in a polite, respectful and courteous manner towards others, except for ChenYe.

 

Vengo: ChenYe is someone who is persistent, obsessed, carrying a burden on his shoulders, to revive Aranya (?)

 

Director: DH as Xize will feel jealousy and do things that he would normally not do

 

Reba: Although she really loves this person, she won’t totally rely on this person, she will solve her own problems and figure it out on her own

 

Vengo: DH is an arrogant person. For thousands of years, he has never met someone ‘right’ for him. When he does meet that person and realises how much that person has done for him, he become totally devoted to her. To people he appears as having achieved a state of calmness and composure but actually inside, he is someone who is very warm/loving.

 

Director: Compliments Reba for being very committed and practices her lines very often. He says Vengo is also very dedicated and learns through time (and mistakes) how to play the mature role of DH, planning how to portray the emotions  to accurately depict DH

 

Director: We should also ponder/reflect about our emotions – what have I done, what have I obtained, what have I learned. After a long time, looking back at how you have coped with certain situations, and recollect on the words you have used (?), those are the times you will value/hold dear.  [this part needs more work as I couldn't quite get the context, someone help tidy the translation please]

Many thanks for your effort to translated the convo. No complaints here. It so good to know the indepth of the director minds and knowing that our best couple are working hard to achieve the best of DH and FJ on screen.

Wahh thanks for posting. Will we ever see Xiao Bai wearing her majestic blue wedding dress. A bit disappointed cus I thought it will be red. Why the director is so mean. :bawling:

FJ already have a red wedding gown scene in TMOPB (which was gorgeous). I guess they avoided to replicate this and try something new, like the black wedding gown for FJ and the white for Bai Qian (coz she has a simple red wedding gown too).

In Tang Qi's TLTW universe the color for wedding is rainbow ? So not red like chinese traditions...

I have been a silent reader for a very long time and I really enjoy your convos here and can't help to join as well :D, I really love your insights on this drama as well as the book and helps me to understand more about the story. 

Anyway am I the only one who dislike Yan Chiwu here? Lol. I don't hate him though because some of his characters are funny. It just I feel like he is a nuisance and he is the one who caused a lot of misunderstanding between Donghua and Fengjiu, if it wasn't because of him, Fengjiu probably won't thinking that Donghua loves Jiheng that much and cause her so much pain, yeah some of Donghua actions fed the doubts but it was Yan Chiwu who keep planting the doubt even deeper :unsure:. He was also the one who stole the Jade Lock and caused it lost into Mortal realm, and his love interest who lost her memory at that time helps Nie Chu Yin to get the Jade (even though it didn't succeed) which lead onto Miao Luo get the Jade, both Yan Chiwu and Jiheng are nothing good but just misery to others (well maybe I am a little bit harsh on Chiwu) but look even after Lian Song told everyone in Fanyin Valley don't let anyone know about DHFJ in the Aranya Dream, he with his big mouth told everyone in the demon realm :angry: and that led to Miaoluo know DHFJ whereabouts , I really think YCW and JH match each others (pain in the b##t couple) LOL . I also saw some scene DH spoon fed Jiheng, I need someone smack him at the back of the head too lol, even without romance intention why need to fed her as she is someone paralyzed? I know he take care of Jiheng because of her father but still one shouldn't do something unnecessary.. :( Sorry for the rant just need to let it out. Ha ha.

His thoughtfulness is :heart:.

 

I was watching Vengo interviews last night.

 

He knows what he's lacking, shying away to see his past character roles because he himself could see where he lacks and works hard to improve himself. He loves his parents much.

 

He was conscious of his age :joy: He is 37 and would try to be a 'young hunk' as long as he can stretch it, "There is still a lot of time to be considered a middle age man.":joy: The actors that I can say I fell in love with (before I encountered cdrama) were George Clooney and Richard Geere. My age difference with these were like DH and FJ :joy:. I say with grace that he already have he'll be wonderful as time pass by. :heart:

Spoon fed Jiheng?..Damn..now I really want to kick him in the butt..:angry:

 

He give her medicine... i think....

I hope  it wasn't his precious red golden blood because that privilege is only belong to FJ.

I just finished the raws and there was so much to laugh and swoon over.
 

For those who’ve seen it—the chicken blood scene had me rolling :joy:

 

And the cave scene was soo fluffy! Lovebirds singing to each other and DH being a big baby hehe. 
 

@katfindlay @springfiry I thought Reba’s singing was fine actually. :sweatingbullets: During the Yueling flower scene, she was laying down and it’s really hard to sing when you’re in that position. Gravity doesn’t help lol. I believe it’s her real voice in both instances because in real life, unless she’s doing an intentionally “cutesy” voice, her voice is a bit deeper. I’m iffy on whether Vengo did his own singing or not. The lips didn’t seem to match the singing at some parts but maybe I’ll have to listen more closely when I rewatch.

First of all thank you so much for the translation.

I always want to know the director and their thought about the character and story. But so far I don't really find that much with eng sub. 

 

I didn't really expect that they potraying/ describe Dong Hua that deep but totally loved it :heart: 

As for Vengo comment I was think he is person that show it really openly but I totally agree with what he said too (although I'm 360℃ the opposite type :sweatingbullets:)

Can't wait to watch this episode. This should be when they are back to Jiuchongtian and before the bingcang. I went back to re-read that chapter in the book. This and just before the wedding should be the sweetest time!
