@chubby^green^ i agree that most people know or recognize Donghua because of his silver hair, indigo jewel..and an added to that there's also his trademark Purple robe and especially off course his mighty sword "Canghe".

ah i forgot about his obsession over purple color 

hihihi

and that sword that he truly adore "changhe"

:tounge_xd:

 

talking about sword i have a question

which one is fengjiu's real sword?

i mean almost all the time she is using taozhu sword (which i know for a fact is actual bai qian's sword)

but for her bingcang ceremony she forge her own sword, hexu sword

but after that she still use taozhu sword still rite?

even for fighting miao lu

so i am a lil confuse

(rereading the pillow book for the uptenth time, so of course now it's time for me to think about the trivial and iffy questions that honestly dont even need answer but still am curious though, hahaha)

Chen Ye instantly recognize Donghua because  Donghua was purposely drilled his Canghe blade into pavilion column at Chen Ye eye level(eventhough there was certain people did not recognize Donghua (mostly younger generations) but as soon they see Canghe sword they will recognize him instantly).

i remember one more thing that is associated with donghua, his white sandalwood fragrance (which i am seriously curious about but dunno where to find the smell, i just wanna know what kind of smell it is)

hahaha

 

btw i finished reading the pillow book and i finally understand the few bits at the end where bai gungun was watching bunch of people talking and he described one of those people as pretty sister

and when i realise the name of that pretty sister was xiao yan, my first thought when i first read the book was "hmmm another character that i didnt know about, her name is xiao yan also?"

even the second time reading it i was still believing that this xiao yan and warrior xiao yan is two different person since of the opposite gender

it was only this time that i realised that bai gungun was mistaken xiao yan as a female because of his pretty and delicate feature

lor

could someone make a fanfic of bai gungun falling for the pretty sister xiao yan pls?

:lol:

As Queen, Feng Jiu takes the previous Queen’s sword (Taozu forged by Bai Qian). Then she has to seal her Hexu sword (forged by Feng Jiu herself) ready for the next Queen/King. After returning from the mortal realm, Feng Jiu spent those 200 and something years (before Bai Qian’s wedding) forging the Hexu sword. When Feng Jiu returned to Tai Chen Palace from Aranya’s Dream, she had 10 days to make the sword case. The Bing Cang Ceremony (‘bing’ means weapon and ‘cang’ means to seal) is when she seals her Hexu sword, basically an act of officiation as the new Queen of Qing Qiu. Whoever inherits the throne after her will take the Hezu sword.

White Sandalwood in chinese is called ‘bai tan xiang’. It is a very popular fragrance throughout China and India and made from the essential oil of the white sandalwood tree (Santalum album). You may have, in your childhood, played with those dainty chinese wood fans with intricate cutout patterns that have a nice smell to them, often given out at weddings. That is white sandalwood. You can get all sorts of hair assecories, jewelleries, etc, made from that wood. All these will contain a diluted form of the fragrance. You can also buy pure white sandalwood essential oil but it is VERY expensive nowadays (about AU$200 for 5ml!!!) due to the white sandalwood tree now being a threatened species.

ah now i understand that part now

thanks for the explanation

i was curious because it seems that although she has her own sword she is still using bai qian's sword

so i was confused

then again there's no harm in having more than one sword

i remember that donghua has collected tons of swords for her over the 200 years she went missing

i checked and it is considered as one of the most expensives wood in the world :crazy:

so befitting donghua i might say :lol:

since that wood is quite popular also in malaysia (it's called kayu cendana here-i just find out that too)

i might asked my grandparents if they have it stashed somewhere

hahaha

 

watching bts for any of dilraba dramas especially her ancient dramas

i have new respect for chinese actress

they fact that they no only have to act but doing some acrobatic actions is beyond me (while wearing that flowy and yet troublesome clothing as well)

and these days the skills are so good, they even manage to look graceful while dangling few metres in the air, just like they are floating and flirting in the air

if that was me...

i dont want to think about it

 

btw i was reading characters description in wikipedia for pillow book (again not a very reliable source but i like reading and i tend to read everything everywhere that i find interesting)

it was a lil confused when they mentioned there that siming seems to have affection aka in love with fengjiu and it was stated in wiki that this love is hinted in the pillow book and also in the drama eternal love

where?

o.O 

did i miss it? did it fly by my eyes and i blinked?

i mean i adore those two together and they look cute together and their interaction is just priceless, if there was no donghua, i dont even mind...

but i never get that kind of vibe while reading the book and watching the drama

all i get was brotherly love or even amusement from siming toward fengjiu

or even maybe just simple adoration only

hmmm....

 

sorry if any my questions bothering you guys

i just wanna talk about everything and there's noone around me that is interested 

so i only have this thread

hahaha

Yes, as @Sisca_TVXQ said, it was implied in the drama. In that moment, when he felt the urge to comfort her more intimately in the cell, he exclaimed to the heavens, ‘You have got to be kidding me... (about his feelings). This is the crown princess of Qing Qiu!’ It’s NOT in any of the books. I should also add - the drama made Si Ming a personal subordinate to Dong Hua and lives in Tai Chen Palace. In the books, Si Ming is a subordinate to some other High Professor and does not have any interactions with Dong Hua. In the book, Dong Hua’s most trusted subordinate is Zhong Lin.

@Sisca_TVXQ

omg that simple gesture?

i didnt think much about it before

i know he scolded himself, but i thought it was because he felt sorry for her and was slightly attracted to her but not to the extent of being in love or infatuated...

i must change my way of thinking seriously

so yes i've seen that one in the drama

 

and the book

now i'm reading the first book with different perspectives and i realised there's so many things that siming did for fengjiu isnt it?

the biggest act he did for fengjiu in the book was when she was wounded by the snow lion (or whatever pet jiheng has) and he was trying his best to treat her and taken care of her by going all places to get meds and tended to her

i was smitten with siming that time

in the drama he was rather carefree and very easy, in the book he was more concerned and delicate as well

my heart was moved hahaha

and also the part where he was drunk with lian song and pouring his heart out telling how pitiful fengjiu was rite?

but he also helps her when she wanted to enter taichen palace, gives her the precious frosty grass

even help her fix the drawing of the saber that liansong made for cheng yu (i think)

he even so delicately remembers that that fengjiu hates bitter medicine and always prepare something sweet to eat with the medicine he prepared

interesting

now i'm seeing siming in a whole new perspective

:)

 

ah sweet siming... sweet sweet siming...

i was wondering about zhong lin since he was there in the book not in the drama 

i guess the drama just combine zhong lin and siming together (simple)

hahaha

although at the end of book 2 i was not that fond of zhonglin because he berated feng jiu, not that i blame him too

his master has chosen to die, even i will be angry at fengjiu, seeing that he was the one who was there watching donghua living his life for the past 200 years searching for fengjiu

still one of my fav dialogue of the book was delivered by zhonglin in book 2

when princess zhi'he was crying asking everyone what is less of her if compared to fengjiu and zhong lin with his straight honestly delivers the biggest blow of all

“although you are considered beautiful, compared to Her Highness Fengjiu, you're actually... a little ugly.”

:lol:

Yes, unlike Bai Qian who is socially akward, Feng jiu is really an easy going person so there is a lot of people attracted to her and adore her because of her personality...

I found this funny, Si ming is associated with Wen chang Di Jun :D

@elsanna

Well they give us an update like that, just a freaking tail LOL. We need something real and beautiful to quench our thirst :P

Hey guys! 

 

Newbie here! Wow, I just spent a good couple of hours reading through all the pages, and I made a soompi account just so I can comment some of my thoughts. 

 

1. Someone mentioned YeHua’s epilogue, does anyone have a translated copy of this? I’d love to read it. 

 

2. The mortal realm arc and the role that Vengo will play is definitely an interesting concept. I actually didn’t realize that DongHua didn’t actually go to the mortal realm until my third time reading the pillow books. :sweat_smile: It just didn’t sink in. But I have a theory about what the crown prince role might be, in the pillow books, FengJiu says that she has no sexual experience because both times that she had been married, both the Song Emperor and Ye Qingti treated her like precious, pure being and never touched her. She broke the Song Emperor’s heart by writing a love letter to his Noble Consort which then compelled him to marry her to Qingti. In the drama, she breaks his heart by feigning an affair with the Crown Prince, YuanZhen. I think that they’re probably going to reuse the crown prince “affair” for how she breaks the Emperor’s heart since writing a love letter to another woman might have too many homosexual subtexts for a mainland drama. Anyway, that’s just my two theory. 

 

3. I read some discussion about dubbing, originally, I wasn’t a fan either, but for “ancient” dramas, I think dubbing really helps standardize accents and ensure proper pronunciation. If you listen to YangMi’s voice, it’s so jarring after watching her as Bai Qian, especially for those that understand Chinese. Also, voice acting is really difficult and full of complexities; I think that the voice actors really convey deep emotion that a lot of actors wouldn’t be able to do otherwise. Think about all the breathy, emotional YeHua lines. Not a lot of people possess the ability to emote that much just through their voice. My only hope for FengJiu and DongHua is that they keep the same voice actors. It’d be awful to have to associate another voice with recurring characters. I think that their voice actors suited them really well too.

Interesting!!! :D But even if they reuse the crown prince affair, are you suggesting they might do away with Yuan Zhen (or Dong Hua might replace Yuan Zhen like he replaced Xize?). And do you think they’ll literally have an affair or just pretend? Leaked pics appear to show Feng Jiu kissing the Crown Prince... maybe it’s pretend? But i also feel like they need to have some sort of passionate romantic connection (but something also tears them apart) in order to make Dong Hua’s role as Crown Prince worth the addition to this drama.

and also

hahaha

 

those pics are amazing

fengjiu is looking so cute and adorable

and donghua... gosh i adore the purple sash with that white outfit

looking really dashing

i recognize the rest as zhe yan, su moye (moshao), ali and also bai gungun (the seriously adorable bai gungun)

and also

 yan chiwu, chengyu, bai zhen, siming, lian song and lastly must be jiheng (she looks older than i expected jiheng should be) but jiheng is much much older than fengjiu rite? also what is that she is holding? saha fruit?

so we are still miss zhong lin, zie guchou, prince meng, zhihe, and other minor characters which may be or not be in the drama version

it doesnt matter, all is good, i just like seeing and matching characters name to their faces now, it makes all more real

hahaha
