I'll be honest that it's hard to get over that darn HEA. Why insert 5min of annoyance, when a minute is enough. Instead of that babbling inserted in the finale, they could have shown 3min more of the avengers, DH, FJ, and BGG. Well, maybe at least of FJ waking up, or  of BGG asking DH if she's alright, or the entire boat scene.

 

I wish there's a scene of Grandma Fumi lamenting FJ's choice of husband. Hahaha. 

 

In Aranya's dream, they should have included in the final cut the prison scenes of Aranya. Reba mentioned it as a very emotional scene to act, the realisation that there are parents who can hate on their children that way.

 

I would love to see the banter between Grandma Fu Mi and her mother lol.

 

For Aranya, its more like her mother took out her anger with the bad Shang Jun on her. Both women are the victim of their own circumstances.

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 : @

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

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

That convo between mom and granny would have been hilarious. 

 

I've repeatedly seen in the translated text the term "half a day" to connote how much time passed. Is it also written as such in Mandarin?

 

Migu spent half a day in pondering and had found cause for why these three honorable deities were gracing them with their profound aura. (PB1, P2)

its a poetic way of saying "thinking for a long time", not necessarily half a day. example usage "想了老半天“

It was a bit odd at first reading half a day. :)

 

One more scene they could have shown, XY screaming of honour to DH, and he answers that infamous "What's that? Never heard of it." :lol:

 

Also, DH going to demon realm confronting XY where's his baby fox.

If you had hurried back and told me these exact words back then, if you had told me that there had never been anyone more important than me, I might've believed you. But now...”
He closed his eyes. “Xiao Bai...”
She shook her head with a smile and interrupted him.

 

what do you think Dong Hua would have said if Feng Jiu hadn’t interrupted him?

My feeling is that in the bookverse (though this was not shown in any book scene), Yan Chi Wu saw Ji Heng for what she really was, a weak-willed woman who does not love anyone but herself. That’s why in the end, he showed up to make amends, by helping to break the Star Light Ward and saving his best friend, Bai Feng Jiu.

 

And yes those scenes between DH and YCW are really funny. Me thinks that even DH would have appreciated YCW’s help in saving them. 
 

He was even allowed to sit in Tai Chen Palace and talk to the other immortals in the closing epilogue. 
 

Goes to show Dong Hua is just cold on the outside. The truth is he is anything but that for the things he really cares about.

I believe he started to distance himself from JH when XY confronted DH over the Saha fruit. He didn't tolerate FJ not receiving her right price. It didn't count for him that JH might really benefit from the fruit because it isn't hers to begin with.

 

XY might be crass at times, but he sure is perceptive, and values his friends. He must have been very dismayed when he had to drag DH for help to treat JH who went to Mt Baishui for more Qiushui toxins.

 

That's why he had no issues acting as messenger for DH. It's just really unfortunate that he wasn't able to deliver those very important letters. I can imagine XY kicking himself when he finally woke up and found out that FJ left and DH is turning upside down whichever place he could to find her.  

 

XY assisting MY, BQ, and YH isn't by chance, even if he said he was just passing by Bihai Cangling. He wants to make up for FJ and DH, and truly wants them to have their HEA. :)

 

Pretty sure DH appreciates XY even if he was infernally jealous of him, because he's caring of FJ and he's loyal and will stand up against anyone for her.

He still would not try to explain. To a “dying man”, at this point, there is nothing to say anymore. He does not want her to die with him. And he knows that is exactly what she will do. Which is why he rather suffer than tell her the truth.

 

Every decision he has made since they got together has always been for her well-being. This is the kind of sacrifice he was willing to make, just so Xiao Bai can live on as her happy self.

It’s just YCW’s excuse but I knew it wasn’t because he was passing by. He deliberately showed up to help. And he was sincere in wanting them to have their HEA.

 

I knew he would turn against Ji Heng in the end and do what mattered more. He helped her bring Dong Hua to her but he would have regretted it. He most likely heard the conversation between them and realised that everything was one side from her and Dong Hua had never reciprocated.

 

And to use her father’s dying gift to threaten DH must have helped YCW finally wake up from his infatuation.

JH used XY. I'm sure XY didn't expect that his goodwill in helping her leave Fanyin Valley would be because she planned to sabotage FJ's wedding.

 

And yes, he surely heard all her BS reasons for her shenanigans, and what she used to ask the nauseatingly outrageous demands to divorce FJ.

 

Only a fool with a penchant for masochism will stick with that kind of person.

That will pave the way for his true love story that will be written down the track. :blush:

But the actor really nailed it in his demeanour which is harder to do.

So true , infact not just for ELOD but Vengo managed to set standards for  ancient gods/powerful immortals character's in xianxia genre.. his body-language and expression were on spot. It would take years to beat this performance of his for sure..

She's also prettier than XY. Not the other way around. FJ approves.

The most beautiful white haired deity too, male or female category. Well, Vengo is very good looking in the first place, stands out too with his height and posture. He has the god aura in abundance, and he totally owned the platinum locks. I dunno why somebody thought he isn't good enough to reprise the role of DHDJ. Don't they have eyes?

:happy:

Tencent/WeTV is having a "popularity" contest in FB on which drama they aired is viewers' first choice to watch. I mostly saw Untamed, followed by ELOD. Some commenters are torn between ELOD and Untamed. Hehe.

 

I rather feel that if ELOD gets similar marketing treatment as Untamed (20 special edition, etc), it can equal it in popularity. :blush:

I love this drama but it's hard to get over the fact that it could have been much better if certain scenes were not omitted.

You can tell the cast really dug into it, the sets/props were also magically beautiful! (Sometimes I find myself pausing a scene just to look at the the props or set.) So much effort went into ELOD... it makes the omissions and rushed ending in favor of the unnecessarily long mortal arc even harder to bear. :( 

 

I hope one day we will get to see what could have been in whatever form. But honestly I think the chances are slim. 

Is it likely Elod will be released in a box set?

I hope one day that somebody who can make that happen notices that there are ELOD fans who are willing to pay for the complete version of episodes and BGMs if only they release it.

Currently at episode 43... The look DH gives SMY after he was also given fox candies. :lol: Priceless!

The background music is always so on point! Especially with DH.

Aaaand DiJun...shamelessly walking off with SMY's share feeling pleased with himself. :phew: Ancient child :lol:

 

Haha, if SMY didn't complain why he's having less, and accuse Cha-cha of eating some of his share, he would still have 5.

 

SMY be like:

:crybaby:

 

While DH:
