Hao De married Su Jan, so she's not a concubine but a consort,  a wife of the father of Liam Song. 

I’m confused. I thought that other than being the main wife (empress) all other wives are concubines=consorts.

Jiichongtian may mean nine heavens, but the 1st-36th skies in TPB are likely what celestials would call the different areas and locations in their kingdom

?????Then why not just call the place 36 Sky?

 

finished episode 43. I admit I admire Dong Hua and Shen He’s performance here....until the end when Dong Hua called Xiao Bai’s name like he was going to scold her rather than take her out on a date.

Dong Hua, are you so insecure to be jealous just because Moye got toffees too?

No. Consorts are not concubines. The dictionary itself would expound the meaning and differences between the two.

Isn't nine the auspicious number for the Chinese?

The toffee was promised to Dong Hua in the first place.  He's just taking back what's his. LMAO. Was it you @SilverDawn who posted this before? :lol:

@MayanEcho I believe I did. It's one of my favorite scenes! I can't help but laugh out loud everytime I watch that scene- the look on poor SMY's face :lol:

When DH smiled widely on Chacha's explanation that SMY really only have 5 as FJ intended...we know what happens when DH smiles. :lol:

 

Net would be broken if there was a scene like that included in the final cut. 

:winkx:

That smile... so so dangerous. A smile only FJ and BGG can actually enjoy without fear... others should run for the hills! :D 

 

Vengo did such an amazing job! So much was in the eyes, the smile... just briliant. Re-watching many scenes I start to notice and appreciate it more and more.

Gun Gun: Father, can I sleep with mother to night?

Dong Hua smiles, to Gun Gun’s relief.

that night, Gun Gun found his bed missing. Instead there was a kid version of a camping bag.

Ali: let’s go count the stars!

Gun Gun: ....

Read the link. While it explains why nine is such a favoured number, it doesn’t explain why people mention 30+ layers

Which means a more in-depth, literary or cultural research assignment for you to do. :)

Remembering the comics, there is a question I want to ask.

if Dong Hua wants Feng Jiu to develop on her own instead of using him as an easy way to get things done, why does he mimic her handwriting to do her homework?

Just after Feng Jiu bought DH a fox mask, she apologized for not recognising him. I can’t identify his reaction. Anybody got a clue plz?

IMO his reaction was understanding and maybe a little jealous when she said "At that time, I mistook you as Su Moye. And told you a lot of things." He had a smile knowing that Feng Jiu realize Xize was DH. His reaction probably is 'is okay although you mistaken me as Su Moye and make me jealous since you spent a lot of time with him and not me. But at least we spent that moment of time together' kind of smile. DH is kinda understanding that the night was dark and it was hard to see and how Su Moye dress as him and that FJ would have mistaken Dijun for Su Moye. And on top of that FJ didn't have her memory at that time. Dijun's happy reaction when she bought him a fox mask to make him happy and her way of expressing her love to him. FJ finally have her memory back. All the misunderstanding is being clear up and that they are free to love each other.

He doesn’t want Feng Jiu burning the midnight oil studying? Either he wants to do some nighttime activities or he wants his wife (pillow) beside him when he sleeps?

Finished episode 44.

liked it until the end.

the courtship was adorable.

but I did resent how Feng Jiu wanted to live in a dream out of fear that Dong Hua would leave her in the real world. Have some standards FJ! If he doesn’t really love you, then don’t live in a mock relationship. You deserve better than that. It just reminds me of Bella in New Moon, how she was determined to follow Edward as an immortal even if he didn’t want her to. Learn to let your crush go! If they love you, they’ll come back. But don’t force them into a relationship they don’t want.

of course I know Dong Hua loves, Feng Jiu. I’m just critiquing Feng Jiu’s désire to stay in the dream.

As he himself experienced growing up, not all things are learned in school and from books. As a student, he's the sleeping in the class kind himself. :D

The POV of FJ is that they're more free together as they are a couple in the dream realm. There's no Ji Heng, no other people or obligations that DH has to choose over or leave her for.

 

The relationship isn't a sham though even if they're playing a couple as Xi Ze and Aranya. 

 

DH was right when he told her that even Shen Ye will have to face the reality sooner, that not even her efforts to help him will get what he truly wants since Aranya can not return.

She did let go after mortal realm trial. ^_^ Never at any point FJ forced DH to be in a relationship with her. Everything is organic, from baby fox to dream arc. It was DH who did the chasing after they met as who they are.

@SilverDawn totally agree with you about Vengo's acting. I wish he got rewarded for his roles in ELOD. He made alot of micro facial expressions and subtle body language, that if you didn't pay attention it is easy to miss. Both Vengo and Reba made DongFeng's love believable because of the natural body language when they are together.

I think its different type of learning and independence DH want FH to cultivate. School base learning is often rote learning and have less impact on FH's ability to defend herself against danger. 

Whereas DH wants FJ cultivate survival skills, so she can keep herself safe when he isn't around to save her from danger.

I agree with you that love cannot be forced. In this situation, FJ wasn't forcing DH to be with her. It was FJ being honest and opening up to DH about her insecurities. 

To me, FJ wasn't being unreasonable in that scene. She never demanded DH to stay with her in the dream and she calmly listened to DH's reply.

DH needed to hear FJ's thoughts too. It probably helped DH understand how deeply FJ was impacted. 

FJ essentially had thousands of years of mostly negative experience related to DH and reinforce her insecurities. Not that it was DH's fault for majority of it. On top of that, DH did suddenly leave FJ, just right after he declared he will marry her. Which triggered FJ insecurities. So it's only natural that FJ is scared and worried DH will 'forget' her once they are out of the dream. 

 

I think the scene was important.  Some viewers see FJ as needy and immature. But I think she handled it well. She could have closed up and let her insecurities and resentment build. Instead, FJ bravely expressed her fears to DH. DH could have handled it better by giving her a hug.  The positive is he didn't reject FJ and instead explained the situation to FJ in a objective way.
