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

Just finished The Untamed and having withdrawal symptoms right now, try to watch Novoland and Love & Destiny but I cant seem to get into it :sweatingbullets: Really hope we can see Pillow book this year ~


Tell me about it hahaha, I've been trying to distract myself with other things but it's only slightly working
I'm probably going to go back and read the Pillow book for the 4th time LOL 
I was considering continuing watching Love & Destiny but I just feel like I'm too invested in Pillow Book :joy:
Praying for a 2019 release as alwaysss #DONGFENG4LIFE

Considering China just announced another 'ban' on historical dramas starting August, we might not get to see this show depending how long the ban lasts this time. I just can't believe they broadcasted love and destiny ahead of this show..... sheeeeesh!

? are you talking about the one that's mentioned like, last page, where more entertaining shows are restricted due to 70th celebration of establishment of PRC? It last for 100 days and likely mostly apply to TV only, although airing as webdrama would mean it can't get as much audience, and it might not be able to promote much if it airs during that time. While August is little early to prep for it, I'm pretty sure everyone expected TV station to air specific dramas from September onwards. Love & Destiny aired as a webdrama FYI.

Recently there is a rumor that Pillow book is aiming for TV release, thats why we're worried

If by eps 13-14 you're still not hooked then the maybe the story is not your cup of tea.

The lead actors chemistry is amazing, several supporting actors acting is kinda bad but they dont have that much screen time so its still okay. CGI is just ok but the story and plot is interesting and intriguing enough I went ahead and finished the novel in 3 days :sweatingbullets:

 Thank you so much! I love the novel :heart: i have read it after i watched the anime, which is absolutely gorgeous, and then i was pleasantly surprised to find out there will be a drama also. As far as i understood, the drama follows closely the book, which is amazing. Why they didn't do this to Pillow book also?? (considering the plot of the drama will be just like that stupid synopsis). The book is amazing and very well written, just like The grandmaster of demonic cultivation. Anyway, let's wait and see what will happen.

Yes. It's all about money. Like you said - Pillow Book is rumored to be scheduled as a TV drama vs. web drama. Considering the popularity of FJ and DH chracters in the TMOPB franchise, that probability of the series becoming a TV release is not improbable. So the earliest possible date for airing the series is now moved to December if we're lucky..... Just sayin'

Spoiler

Yes they followed closely but I dont like how they make WWX weaker/less evil. In novel he is the founder of the demonic cultivation and  Stygian Tiger Seal but in drama he is just using Yin iron, talismans and wicked craft? And Wen ning is not a fierce corpse but rather a human that easily possessed and become stronger because of yin iron. I'm guessing its because of the restrictions so was hoping the anime will follow the novel more closely.

 

I dont believe that synopsis at all, it doesn't even make sense. And from all the fancams we see I believe they followed the novel closely but add more scenes for the mortal world.

Yes, the synopsis doesn't make sense at all. I don't mind them adding more scenes to the mortal world, as long as they follow the plot for the other 2 arcs closely enough. 

 

What about Love and destiny? Did you like it?

Agreed, I did notice a few differences in the clips I saw of Aranya's dream...
Plus with some characters being added (Bai Zhen) and others probably not appearing (Ye Hua) the story is bound to change a little
But hopefully they didn't change it too much

I dont know, the subs at Croton official YouTube chanel is not completed, I'm still stuck at eps 5 and too lazy to watch at other sites (Prefer to watch it on my smart TV :sweatingbullets:)

Just want to chime in and say that Love and Destiny is fantastic. It's such a good drama, and it's such a shame the subs are going at a snails pace. I would recommend it to any drama lover.

Hihi..how would you compare it to TMOPB?

 

I am wanting for the drama to be completely subbed, then i will start watching it. Meanwhile i am hooked on by the untamed. The novel it's better, but still it's an amazing drama, like Sisca_TVXQ said :heart: i hope pillow book will have the same popularity as untamed..it's crazy how popular this drama is. 9.3 score on mydramalist :dizzy:

Yup, agreed, as much as I love The Untamed but I think its so overrated on MDL...I rated it 8.5.

It is a really good adaption but to think that its rated higher than other series like Nirvana in fire is crazy IMO :sweatingbullets: 

 

@ipohtown I dont know how reliable that chanel is so we shall wait and see :sweatingbullets:
