Fresh out of the oven! ELOD translation team presents author Tang Qi's 7th epilogue for The Pillow Book. We hope you get the joke because it is hilariously funny to the bones!!!    Source : @

Ok - for those wondering what Vengo said during his interview (I only translated up to this point. The rest was his message for his love rivals, which I won't go into, his appreciation to viewers for

The ELOD translation team have finally completed the English translation of Tang Qi's latest Pillow Book Epilogue. We hope you will enjoy the read! Shameless DH in action yet again!   S

since he is in or all around tai chen palace persay in the pics

means that his scenes would most probably be around taichen palace 

so...

he might be our dearest but sometime urgh, zhonglin

his dressing doesnt look too grandeur or too shabby

so he must be someone with a rank but not too high

he doesnt look too old either and his features doesnt seem someone with much power as well

 

his figure reminds me of liansong honestly speaking

but he doesnt look like liansong much

hahaha

 

my guess, he is lord zhonglin of taichen palace

hahaha

 

btw the palace really does looks amazing and luxurious

^__^

ok, I watched bits and pieces of TMOPB back when it was launched but never read the novel it was adapted from and just happened to pop by this thread (page 63 and not before, so please pardon me if whatever I share has already been shared previously). I saw the questions on Dijun 帝君 and Shangshen 上神...

confession time!

at first when i just watch the drama eternal love i thought donghua's full name was donghua dijun

then when i read the book and read that even bai zhi aka fengjiu's grandfather was called dijun as well

i was confused

 

On 2/3/2019 at 8:40 PM, chubby^green^ said:

i like to think him as one of the dijun because i always think that dijun is a title given for someone with high power and authority and the length of time of existences :phew:

not just because they used to be or still a ruler of something

the disadvantages of not knowing chinese language unfortunately, you basically went with what you think rather than what it really is

guilty as charged here

hahaha

 

Here's my understanding, based on knowledge (of Chinese mythology) I previously had (which is minimal), and some quick research (in Chinese, thus my terminology may not be the same as English translations of the series, since I have not read any translated versions) online...so please correct me if I am wrong...

 

One thing to bear in mind...the "Three Lives" series is a fiction that's loosely based on Chinese mythology and may have borrowed elements from Chinese mythology and other similar based books, and has it's own "self-created ecosystem" that's not necessarily in line with Chinese mythology. E.g. I don't think Chinese mythology had so many different realms as reflected in the series, and even if there was, the balance of power between the realms, is a whole system of it's own within the series.

 

帝 in general, refers to emperor (皇帝) and 君 (not 俊) generally means Lord, so 帝君 is sort of a "Ruler / In-Charge" title. Tianjun 天君 is the Ruler of the Heavenly (天) Realm. Based on what I read online, within the series, the Heavenly Realm isn't necessarily considered the most powerful, even though it is deemed as the highest in authority in name. The various realms basically just co-exist, although the balance of powers aren't all equal.

 

On the other hand, Shangshen 上神 is a "level of immortality", which is dependent on various factors, including "birthright", "age", "trials and tribulations endured", "good works", etc. and is the highest possible level of immortality.

 

So, Donghua Dijun 东华帝君 holds a ruler title of 帝君 but is also 上神 Shangshen, an immortal of the highest level. Same for Fengjiu's grandfather / Bai Qian's father 白止 Bai Zhi, since he is the ruler of the Fox Realm. Although Donghua is no longer a ruler, he still holds the title probably out of reverence by all immortals. He was the ruler of ALL realms long ago, and distributed them out to the various realms, e.g. he apparently gave up the rulership of Heavenly Realm to the current 天君 Tianjun's predecessor (uncertain how many generations before current though), which is also why 天君 Tianjun also seem so afraid of him. So in a way, Donghua is like the retired CEO (who doesn't bother with daily operations) while the various rulers of each realm are like the Managers within their realms?

 

There appears to be many (at least 15, of which 2 are no longer around) 上神 Shangshen in the series:

  • 8 in the Bai family: 白浅 Bai Qian and her 4 elder brothers (including Fengjiu's father), her eldest sister-in-law 未书 Weishu (eldest sister of 玄女 Xuan'nv, former by wife and latter by concubine, thus the different status), and their parents 白止 Bai Zhi and his wife
  • 瑶光 Yao Guang: she appeared in TMOPB and stays near Moyuan because she is his admirer and was sort of jealous of Bai Qian when she was his disciple as 司音 Siyin
  • 天君 Tianjun: Ruler of the Heavenly Realm
  • 折颜 Zheyan: Born as a phoenix and brought up by "Father god", so he is somewhat like Moyuan's elder brother
  • 墨渊 Moyuan: Son of "Father god" and elder brother of 夜华 Yehua (but was originally not born properly because their mother was injured during pregnancy, thus only his spirit was born and kept within the golden lotus for many years, until rebirthed as 夜华 Yehua)
  • 东华帝君 Donghua: Born of a rock but established his worth based on his own strengths, and is the oldest "living" immortals
  • 父神 "Father god" and 母神 "Mother god" (possibly Fuxi and Nvwa from ancient Chinese mythology): Both have "passed on"

DH: ok, ok, here's some cash...

 

FJ: YAY, I can get some food...*a whole list of food items*

I love the fact that we are up to page 65 without 1 decent trailer out. It shows how much we love Dongfeng couple. This is the first for me to follow a drama even before the release date is out or even a trailer out. And I dont regret it.
