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.

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?

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:

There are a lot of similarities between the two dramas, but as L&D progresses, the more it comes into it's own. I noticed a lot of subtle plot devices and events that were very similar to what happened in TMOBP but with a different coat of paint. I took it as the director likes to pull from her favorite bag of tricks; and the reason the two match in ways, is that is what the director likes. Take the lead, Ju Chen and Ye Hua for example, I get the feeling that the strong, mature, silent type; that burns with passion on the inside is perhaps what the director has a personal taste for. What a fangirl. lol

 

But honestly L&D is so enjoyable. I'm up to about episode 31 one now and the what makes L&D stand out, starts to shine during this current arc I'm in. It gets very emotional and touching, with plenty of lovable characters. Story wise, it's a humble start and grows stronger with progression. It's never been boring. I think the pacing is well done. Not to mention, costume, music and the CGI are all top notch.

 

The leads also have very good chemistry together, and the side characters and their love stories are not uninteresting. I'm really excited to see where each potential romance goes. There's even a bit of second lead syndrome, where you find yourself rooting for the second guy, even though you still love the main paring. Crazy. :P

 

I heard it has a happy ending too. So I'm sure that whatever happens, at least I know that the book will be closed nicely.

 

I would say that depending on your preferences, L&D is either better than TMOPB, or TMOPB will always be superior. They are that close in qualities, it just comes down to the person watching.

hmmm..nothing new. but maybe, considering she is an actress that is actually part of the drama, she knows for sure that the producers already bought a TV slot at the national television (considering Pillow book will air both on TV and online). praying this is true. and if is, we need to throw a party here :joy::love:
