But why make him eat the soup right there and then? She could just say, teacher I made this soup for you to drink at your residence.

 

 

It's JH's way of competing against FJ, and her attempt to show the other guests that DH will eat her soup even if he's in a banquet. He ate some, but what happened later is more interesting. He didn't hesitate using the soup vessel as rocket and lobbed it to XY...coz he didn't get a piece of the pastries FJ made. :lol:

FJ is amazing. She may be impulsive at times, but she had the patience of a saint in that scene. 

 

She knows her manners. Even if she's known in Fanyin as Jiuge, FJ won't disgrace Qing Qiu over a rude guest. 

 

Side by side at the banquet, it's already obvious who is more fit to be DH's empress.

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 scene stays funny! I wish they'd have filmed it as it's in the book though. :lol:

Coz she's that desperate with her illusions in staking her "claim" to everyone? Even if there's nothing to hold on to. DH doesn't live in the same courtyard as hers anymore, so sending him food is awkward. Her chance to pretend and grasp straws are at the banquet, nevermind if she's rude and pushy.

 Rude, pushy...delusional, self-absorbed, narrow minded,... And the way she serves tea (or soup) makes me want to... :smashes:DJ, ever recoursfull, found excellent use for her soup though. I like XJ, but boy he had it coming! :lol:

Same! It would have been more funny if XY really fell downstairs and was bathed in soup! 

 

JH was being calculating too. She was kinda preening when DH mentioned that she shouldn't touch that vine ingredient for the soup. 

 

She's really rude to the host and other guests for bringing soup. She said DH isn't used to FJ's cooking. Then she said the food at the banquet might not suit him as well. So she brought soup, but only for one person.

Just re-watched episode 2 and 3, DJ trolling SM and LS with his culinary skills.

I think the scene where LS is spellbound after eating FL's sorrowless cake had to be hard to shoot- It looks like SM is about to crack up after LS tried to feed it to "him." :loolz: I wonder how many times they came close to cracking their wigs.

They did laugh a lot during takes. They said so in their interviews, and there are sounds of laughter that can be heard BTS while they practice their lines. :lol:

 

Have you noticed in Ep24 Jiuchongtian gate scene that DH was grinning while LS was holding on to his laughter as he bowed?

They didn't have as much BTS compared to TMOPB, but they've good camaraderie in-between takes. :D Most of them already worked with each other several times, and it helps they're good friends outside the sets.

Watched a clip about the bamboo house blueprints. We know Feng Jiu planned on giving Dong Hua his own room in the event she kicks him out of hers. But this is in her own kingdom.

what about in Taichen Palace? She can’t kick him out of the palace. She stays in his bedroom. So if they fight, will Feng Jiu move to GG’s room, or just appropriate a guest bedroom and make it her own?

You said so yourself, she stays in the same room in Tai Chen even when they have a tiff. ^_^

Or she'll change into her fox form and curl up outside some place not to far away...

But DJ will good heartedly carry her back to their bedroom I'm sure...

 Yes, it's almost funny when you see these familiar faces pop up in different drama's together. :lol:

It's so nice that FJ, DH, most of the Bai family, LS, and most of all, SM were reprised by the same actors. :D XY too as the twin of Zhilan in TMOPB. :lol: But especially Si Ming, as he's the most distinctive voice of them all.

How do you think DongFeng spend time in their happily ever after? Let’s face it, FJ will be busy catching up on her studies. GG will be studying too. Dong Hua would be...learning Feng Jiu’s handwriting. 
GG will learn to cook from FJ and see DH sneak kisses in between.

DH still fishes while Feng Jiu is still studying. Poor girl.

I don't think studying is everything haha or studying for a long period of time. Otherwise DH will feel she's ignoring him. One can loose distraction (speaking from experience). I would think DH and FJ could spend more time with their son/children. Family bonding is important! Maybe they'll take their son to a night fair, markets perhaps, or visiting FJ's family. A family vacation? Dh and FJ still have a honeymoon after their wedding. I think perhaps FJ can share some of Qing Qiu cultures as well. Whatever it is we can leave it to our imagination knowing that they're happy together ;))

After what they went through, I rather think they will adjust the timings of their own personal matters to attend to, so that they can always all have plenty of time together. 

 

FJ may still be studying, but it can be that a) she actually goes to school, b) she learns though private tutors, c) she does distance learning, supervised by DH no less. :lol: Who knows, DH might create another version of Miaohua mirror for her lectures! :D

 

Anyhow, we'll surely see more of DH and FJ in Lotus Steps' immortal arc, since one was half-raised in Tai Chen Palace, while the other is besties with the Empress.

Cheng Yu is only BFF with Feng Jiu in ELOD. She’s not mentioned much in the book itself as a friend of Feng Jiu’s.

 

currentky watching episode 17, regarding the love trial, would you rather have it happen by:

1) being falsely accused and sentenced only for the emperor to live in regret forever

2) cheat on the emperor and break his heart

I’ll be honest. I’d rather do the first bit. At least then I would have done nothing wrong. And poor Qingti could be spared.

It's one of the nice changes in ELOD, given that BQ wasn't there much in the drama except for the wedding. Many of her portions in the book were divided to Bai Zhen, Si Ming, Zhe Yan, and Cheng Yu.

 

I say it's also smart marketing for the 3rd book, and hopefully, possible 3rd drama of 3L3W universe. It's similar to FJ in TMOPB. In the book she's also scarcely there, but she has good exposure in the drama adaptation. 

 

It's not farfetched though that they are eventually friends, since CY looked after Ali as well. Plus, given what's in the Lotus Steps' mortal arc, CY must be FJ's lost twin or sibling when it comes to inviting troubles or doing mischiefs. :lol:

 

As for what FJ could have done in Ep17, she did both - purposely betray SXR and embarrass the state - by running away with YQ on her wedding and crowning day. Sadly, Qingti is inevitably part of it as he's also fallen for FJ.

Finished episode 17. Loved it!

1) how does Prince Ying even have loyal allies? He isn’t the nicest boss And keeps killing allies once they have failed. And besides, he wasn’t much of an ally to Jiheng if his poisoning got her implicated.

2) I feel a bit sorry for Chu Wan. She was trying to repay her debt. Though anyone else would say there are other ways beyond stealing a national treasure that ensures the safety of a small kingdom! And for someone who is about to go to jail and whose friend just died, why the heck are you focusing on whether Xuanren actually had feelings for you? Of course he never had feelings for you. You had to be sick or pitiful before he even had to take notice.

Prince Ying is only loyal to Prince Ying, and his goons are sticking with him for their own ambitions. Like he does, they'll also betray anyone when they're in a bind.

She fell for Nie Chuyin's story. But seriously, she could have had asked how a "parent's gem" became another state's national treasure.

The "attention/praises should be all mine" is rearing its ugly head. Amnesia or not, that self-centred trait of hers is a constant, albeit in varying degrees.

Hello all,

 

I’m new here and I’ve been lurking reading all the messages from page 1 :)  I’ve watched and read TPB multiple times and just can’t get enough of it.  I’m now trying to watch new shows but always end up coming back to my fav episodes :p  currently watching Love and Redemption and notice DH voice actor as the new ML.  The FL voice actor sounds like FJ too...does anyone think so?
