Also props to whoever changed DH's hairstyle :thumbsup: ~*clap clap clap clap clap*~
Who knew?! Putting the ear-tails behind the ears makes such a huge difference! I think they also made the ear-tails thinner...
Credits to the makeup crew as well ~*clap clap clap clap clap*~
Hopefully he looks just as good on film as he does in the posters *fingers-crossed*

From old-looking "young" man, to old but young-looking HOT STUD lol  :joy:

I swear, this is my favourite part of the book :heart::heart::heart: i squealed like crazy the first time i have read it :joy: the way Donghua appear on the scene to battle Nie Chunyin makes my heart flutter, honestly...just imagine the reaction of the whole audience :joy: the almighty king of the universe, the most revered god, the walking Buddha is married! and to whom?!...to a little fox :joy:  imagine the jealousy, the aw and all the mixed emotions that this news provoked to the people being there at that moment. we have to admit that Fengjiu really nailed it...to be able to conquer the most amazing god in the whole universe, it's really someything. This is a lesson of perseverence..if you really, really want something, then the fate really works in your favor. 

 

If they don't show this scene in the drama, i really will throw something out of the window :joy: 


Oh don't worry I'm sure it's in the drama! It has to be! If not, I'll join you and also throw something out the window hahaha :joy:
This looks like the scene, so I'm pretty sure it's included, just can't wait to see everyone's reactions :lol:

woaaaaaa, i will squeal like crazy we will get to this part in the drama, I'm telling you :joy::joy: all the neighbors will hear me. look how nice Dijun looks here. you were right about the hairstyle. it looks so much better here than in TMOPB :blush: though i admit i wanted to see him with the purple jewel in the middle of his forehead and loose hair, like in the fanfics. for example Ye Hua looked amazing with loose hair in TMOPB :love:

One of Fengjiu's POV..

 

Dijun was perhaps the divinest out of

all Divines, forever staying inside the Three puritiest of the untroubled Bodhi land. There was no one in the world who dares to entice him into the dusty realm, but she had audacity to try such a thing. She tried she tried and it's worked. She was too talented.

She drew him into this love affair, something he had never experienced before. He must not be used to it, but even so, he was not lost.  He was still going at his pace, by his rule.  He was certainly the king she always knew. She love it.

 

PS : my old post actually, but because I was so proud of Fengjiu's ...I just need to shared it again.:grin:

It's just so admirably touching with her patience in order to pursue her love..how she managed to melt Donghua Dijun's heart...someone who was known as per described " Emotionless, Desireless, Loveless" .A deity with neither Desire nor Want...existed since the time Yin and Yang separated at the Blue Sea,(an ancient old man :joy:) A true spirit born out of Heaven and Earth.

Donghua Dijun the most attractively charming an ancient old man ..He was 390,526 yrs old and still a virgin (I'm so impressed by his celibacy) and Fengjiu was Fengjiu was 32,200 yrs old..

But I'm not 100% sure about their ages...this is my guess about their age when DongFeng attends BaiQian/YeHua's wedding...i just remembered@redfoxprincess had has post someone's Blog about it.

 

Their age difference??:o:scream::joy:

 

 

He guite amused by Fengjiu's mischievously behaviour when she kick Flowerpot that goes straight toward him but stop merely 3 inches from his precious forehead and Fengjiu spontaneously blame Migu!!!:joy:.

Those incident also make Donghua Dijun finally noticed Fengjiu for the first time eventhough they're actually already briefly meet at Wangsheng lakeside ...

@rapo65Red spider lily...wow ...that's such a beautiful flowers. 

 

Yes...I remember...a sea of fuling flowers

 

I've always heard of your Grace's unparalleled tranquillity in all the realm. I've long wanted to know if your heart is truly as placid as they say it is. My wish was at last granted. I didn't know your Grace's weakness is a sea of fuling flowers. How interesting how interesting indeed. I wonder if...what's you keep in your heart is this flower sea or a certain someone hidden inside it?

I wonder what is the meaning of this metaphor and why the author chose it.

According to wikipedia:

"Since these scarlet flowers usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in Hell, (Chinese: 黃泉), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.

Some legends have it that when you see someone that you may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies or corpse flowers, would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends, Japanese people often used these flowers in funerals. The popular Japanese name Higanbana (彼岸花 Higan bana) for Lycoris radiata literally means higan (the other or that shore of Sanzu River) flower, decorative and enjoyable, flower of the afterlife in gokuraku jyōdo (極楽浄土 gokuraku jyōdo)."

 

Maybe the sea of flowers represented all the dead feelings Dijun had in his heart, because, you remember, before he met her, he didn't know what love and jealousy is. But, among that sea of red flowers, a feeling of love started to blossom. I all the time said chinese people see this feeling of love way different than we see it in the western world. Their legends and novels are way more profound, there is almost a sacred deepness added to human feelings...i don't know how to put it into words (sorry for the rant).

Despite the beauty..the symbolic of each flowers was very unique ..ominous, corpse, sorrowful.. 

 

I love your theories about "sea of fuling flowers" I was wondering how and why Miaoluo thinks that Donghua weaknesses is sea of fuling flower and she manage to figured it out.. someone that Donghua adores is Fengjiu.

 

In Fengjiu's memories about Donghua and fuling flowers. These is after they defeated MiaoLuo, Donghua was injured and resting his head on Fengjiu's lap.

 

Watching a sleeping Donghua,  Fengjiu recalled the day when she has also once liked sleeping on his lap as a baby fox.  In those day when fuling petals fell on her head, Donghua would brush them away for her.

Times like these I wish I could understand Chinese, I'm sure a lot of the underlying poetry is lost in translation.
But I will say I still felt the symbolism of the flowers in the translated novel (also everytime the wind would pick up to DH emotions)
It's so beautiful!! I hope they are able to translate that feeling and poetic love into the drama!  :innocent:

As for the symbolism of the flowers, it seems quite fitting. Especially when representing Fengjiu.
I feel this line really stuck with me, "Some legends have it that when you see someone that you may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies or corpse flowers, would bloom along the path"
This basically describes so much of Fengjiu and Donghua's love story...
From FJ chasing after him as a maid then a fox, then parting ways as she declared to forget her love for him, then as they reunite,  DH almost loses FJ in Aranya's dream, they manage to find love, but end up parting again with Fengjiu leaving DH due to his lies...
So many instances DH ends up in a position where he may just lose FJ for good :confounded:
This is the angst I LIVE FOR!!! Give me all the heartbreak in the drama! I'm ready for it!!!
But also I am so excited to see the happy ending!!

From my understanding DH didn't lie to FJ..but yes Fengjiu felt that DH deceived her especially when she known about the "alter memory potion".

 

Fengjiu leaving because of her doubt or uncertain about DH's love ..that she felt DH not consistent about his own feeling and she also think that DH had choosing Jiheng over her..

 

An excerptions from the book: 

 

When she fell in Aranya Dream, she was in the brink of death and he chosen her. Now that Jiheng was on the brink of death ,he choose Jiheng. Ultimately, who was it that was blind to his own feeling? She reckoned he understood he had wrong her in choosing Jiheng, that was why he was too ashamed to come to Qingqiu to see her.

 

I might say the separation that happened to them was because of many mishaps and misunderstanding..and the fews reason that I think of was:

 

1) Xiao Yan fail to bring a letter to FJ/ Zhonglin from DH that briefly explain about his situations.

 

2) Bai Zhi said that DH and Jiheng having an affair.

 

3)DH didn't know until it too late that the messages he sent did not arrives on time due to the messenger (XiaoYan) injured and have to had a treatment for month's( in comatose..maybe).73 days later DH did come to Qingqiu right after he know that his messages didn't reach FJ.

 

 

 Ps: I don't mind light ansty but please not the heavy ,deep or extreme one..I don't think I can handle it...

 

I read PB so many time ..and everytime..without failure making me cry when read the devestated part..giggles and laugh when it funny...smile when across the happy moments..

 

DongFeng got me really bad..

Ah you're right "deception" is a way better word to describe it

Thankfully there are plenty of funny and cute moments in this story, the angst comes in small but strong moments
Bless the fact that it's a happy ending, hopefully that'll calm everyone whose hearts can't handle too much drama lol

Yes, perfect scene indeed and one of the best in TMOPB. Without their story, TMOPB would have been so boring...i mostly watched it for our DongFeng. 

My favourite parts of their story is hen he goes into the pagoda to save her and at the end of the drama, when he leaves the heavenly convoy carrying YeHua's body and goes to her and he answers her question. Woaaaa, how many feelings in that last scene....i cried like a baby. A love that can never be..so saaad :dissapointed_relieved: (thanks God it's only in the drama) :D

One of my favourites parts in the book..and I have a lots actually.

 

These part was not long before A Flying Vessel incident happened. 

 

FJ sipped her tea and felt if she was floating in a dream,  but next to her Jiheng steady gaze at DH was very real. She couldn't determine truth from dream. After some consideration, she gave herself a pinch, it didn't hurt, she must be dreaming .She pinched herself again. DH voice come from above " How convenient you choose your pinching spot". FJ looked down at her frozen hand which was placed on DH's thigh. She quietly retrieved her hand and dryly laugh " I was helping to smooth out your wrinkles garment Your Majesty "...:joy::joy:

@jimmylyne that scene is very funny :joy: but I doubt they will put it in the drama.

I'm beginning to feel they will push back the airing of PB to 2020.

I really hope these part included in the drama..but unfortunately it's not up to me or us.

 

We all expected it will aired on September(Q4) but now is October already, we have another two months for this year to end but no confirmation or whatsoever not even a trailer!! So sad..

 

Didn't Someone here has had post about an actress who play Jiheng responded to a fan on her Instagram wasn't it?...that this drama will be airing end of this year??

 

@Sisca_TVXQ as always thanks for sharing the news about Reba....

 

Which is guite looking good..
