[Mainland Chinese Drama 2019] I Will Never Let You Go / Legend of Huo Buo 小女花不弃

As best as I can recall, in Chinese, Chen Yu's father has always been referred to as "Qi Wang Ye."  Qi, meaning "seven", and Wang Ye, meaning "your highness," so I've just been thinking of him as the Seventh Prince since there's that one scene where he's talking with his underling and explaining that he doesn't want to make any sudden moves lest he attract the attention of the king. 

 

Without having watched any of the subbed episodes (yet), my guess is that the subbers' interchanging use of Prince/Duke/Lord stems from the fact that sometimes in Chinese, they use one word as a general characterization, and then you have to look at the context in which it's being said to understand properly what is meant, whereas in English we might use more specific terms to get the point across.  My favorite example of that is, "Yang," which in English can mean lamb, goat, sheep, etc.  Heh. 

 

Here, the literal translation of "Wang" is king.  But it can also mean Duke, Prince, etc., again, depending on context.  "Wang Zi" would definitely mean Prince though, as the "zi" connotes that they're talking about a child.  So It's King Child = Prince.  And if you look up "Wang Ye" in the dictionary, you also get as options: Prince, Marquis, and Nobleman.  However you want to translate it, I think it's best understood that both Chen Yu and his father are connected to royalty.  After all, there is also that scene where Chen Yu sits down and purposely lets his robe fall ever so subtly to display a jade piece underneath.  The reason everyone around him suddenly kowtows is because with that jade piece, it's not that he's suddenly displaying his true wealth and they're all wanting to cater to a rich man, but rather, they recognize that means he's a member of nobility.  

 

As for Bu Qi and why she's so valuable . . . 

  Reveal hidden contents

 

I read on cfensi this description of the drama, "In a mysterious kingdom, there is a rumor that whoever finds the treasure hidden in the Luminous Sky Cult will conquer the world.  The treasure can only be opened by the cult's Holy Sorceress and her descendants, and her daughter Xue Fei is sacrificed in the ensuing bloodbath led by the Seventh Prince."  

 

So, from that, I think we can understand why the Seventh Prince is so keen on gaining access to Bu Qi, as Xue Fei's daughter, and by pretending she's his illegitimate daughter, that gives him a legitimate reason for searching for her all these years without arousing suspicion from others.  

 

You’re right. To be more exact, the emperor is his brother. He is the seventh prince who is planning to put Chen Yu on the throne but he cannot do that without getting the treasure, that’s why he wants Hua BuQi’s mother then her. He was stuck in the capital because the King wants to keep him close so he can’t rebel. Like the saying go, “keep your enemies closer.” From watching a lot of political drama, most of the time when the king ascend the throne, they tend to kill the other princes to prevent rebellion or take them off official title in engaging politics. That’s why we see that the seventh prince isn’t engaging in politics in the palace.The seventh prince and Chen Yu are from royal lineage.

According to the novel I'm currently reading (too anxious to wait for eps) I think it's pretty hard Chen yun can be king. The current king has given him a title to govern one of the outskirt far away from the capital. But this is good so he can have his freedom. Sigh they almost met each other quite a few times.

I'd be totally fine with him not being the king.  He doesn't want the position and it comes with so much stress (all the political posturing, fear for one's life, etc.).  He could be a lot happier with Bu Qi just living a plain existence far away from the capital.  Just sayin'.  :P  But I have a feeling it's not going to be that easy, especially with the way they keep bringing up that other friend of his who wants to be a politician.  I fear a betrayal/break down in that friendship between CY and his two childhood besties all related to a fight for the throne.

 

I finally gave in to urges and watched the remaining available episodes raw.  :lol:  Now that so many questions have been answered at long last, I find myself with (not surprisingly) new questions that need answers! 


 

Spoiler

 

-- Now that we know Xue Fei was a daughter of the Zhu Family who was just raised as part of their family friends, the Zhu Family,  in order to avoid a future marriage with the Mysterious Man, that means she and Liu Ming Yue's mother weren't actually half-sisters, as Liu Ming Yue believes. 

 

-- Just before Xue Fei's mother died after giving birth, she objected to the agreement that her father-in-law and the Mysterious Man had reached (about him loaning the Zhu family money in exchange for marriage with any daughter borne to them when she turned 17).  When BQ asked her grandfather why her grandmother had objected, he said that she never gave a reason but he assumed it was because the Mysterious Man was already older than him at that time, so he'd be that much older 17 years later, and who would want to marry off their daughter to such an old man.  From that, I take that to mean that perhaps the grandmother knew her daughter would have Biluotian-related powers, which is what the Mysterious Man was really after, but she never articulated that to the rest of the family, and so maybe the rest of the Zhu family doesn't know about that either?  But if that's the case, how did Xue Fei know about it?  Because she clearly did at the time of her giving birth to BQ.  That was why she initially wanted to kill BQ, since she didn't want her daughter suffering the same fate as her.  Maybe Xue Fei learned about her powers (or whatever you want to call them) later on through others, such as the Seventh Prince

 

-- So curious as to how the Mysterious Man came to Liu Ming Yue's behind the scenes backer/supporter.  Also curious as to how Liu Ming Yue's been able to gain access to Biluotian, as it's been implied, without Xue Fei/BQ in these in between years. 

 

-- Also, now that we've finally been introduced to him, I'm really curious as to how the Second Lead is going to fit within this giant puzzle piece that the drama is putting together for us.  He's clearly from a rich family as well, but which one??  One we've already heard about?  One we've yet to hear about?  Or maybe that won't be a relevant point, and it just matters that he's a physician from a rich family? 

 

 

Gah.  I have so much more to say... but I have to run to meet a friend for lunch now.  LOL.  But I feel I could ponder this drama for the ages.  I love the romance - it is my favorite part of the story, of course - but I also love the story of Bu Qi's journey.  It is an equally gripping part of this drama's story.

@themarchioness I think that Dong Fang Shi (2nd male lead) is linked to the mysterious man who came to Zhu Manor many years back (loaned them money in exchange for Xue Fei hand in marriage). If I am not mistaken the girl servant who was following Dong Fang Shi who calls him "Xiao Ye" is also the same girl I saw a few episodes back talking to the mysterious man. Mysterious man is also someone who Liu Ming Yue works for. So I think Dong Fang Shi is linked to Ming Yue Manor.

 

That's my guess...

Do you remember which episode that was in?  I'd like to refresh my memory as I can't place that scene at all, and as we've had so few scenes with the Mysterious Man so far, I feel like I should be able to but nothing's coming to mind.  :P  Since I just watched the ep with Dong Fang Shi and the servant girl, I can find that scene quickly enough to do a proper comparison.  :)

In contrast, CY made a long sigh and kissed her lips accurately. Her lips are cool and soft, and Chen Yu seems to feel the blood on her lips cheering and rushing, giving him a desire to bite her.

Mysterious Man is Dong Fang Shi's grandfather.  That's why Dong Fang Shi was saying he has the marriage arrangement with HBQ now.
