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

Lol I guess I  just don't see  the 'endearing' ways that DFS shows his love toward BQ as being 'endearing'.  

 

Welllll, I never said he was endearing!  :P  I said he looks out for her, and it's true.  He is very protective of BQ.  And especially when CY is not around, that's actually a good thing.  As an example, when she ran into problems with those two sand desert inn keepers, I  actually hoped DFS would catch up to them because I knew he'd be able to save them if he did - which is exactly what happened.  So, in that respect, he's useful to keep around.  ;) 

 

But, one thing I noticed, is that DFS has a much more ruthless instinct.  Like, was it necessary to rip out fingernails to get his way?  Yow!  CY, on the other hand . . . well, I'm reminded of one of the first conversations he had with BQ, when he was operating as LYK.  She asked him why he hadn't killed the bandits that were causing trouble and he explained that although death was sometimes unavoidable, he preferred to just knock them out when he could. 

 

Another thing that stuck out at me in today's episodes, in the scene where DFS and BQ were traveling around the desert, he kept whipping at his horse to move faster until the horse whinnied.  When I saw that, I wondered if it was necessary?  By contrast, when the two of them were traveling with CY, and he was leading the way, he made similar noises to urge on his horse, but he never whipped his horse. 

 

I'm not really sure where I'm going with this... it's late and I'm half brain dead from recapping Ep 35, but I think what I'm trying to say is that I'm not always comfortable watching DFS.  I think he has a similar end point to CY, which is to keep BQ safe, but their methods for that process are vastly different.  And it's those differences that, in my opinion, make CY the better man.  Nevertheless, I do acknowledge that even when DFS is being a pest (or behaving ruthlessly), he is often coming from a protective place, and it's because of that that he no longer drives me as nutty as he did in the beginning when I just wanted to deck him. :P 

 

 

@mouse007, that IG video you shared.... :wub:

@40somethingahjumma I loved your post and I agree with all your points. You are right, CY being nice to LQW is a testament to the type of person he is. In the beginning, I did want to punch DFS in the face for his arrogance and manipulativeness. But it's funny because the thing I hate about him is also the thing I admire most from him. I hate that he just forces himself and manipulates situations so he can have what he wants. But there's also something attractive about a guy who knows what he wants and just goes for it. 

 

I guess one person's meat is another's poison. ;)

What might be dedication for someone can easily be obnoxious, overbearing and obsessive for another. Maybe I'm becoming cantankerous as I get older but the more of these Asian dramas I watch with these driven, pushy 2MLs, the less I like them. Most of them come off bordering on obsessive IMO... walking the fine line between devotion and obsession. I'm more inclined to respect a man who respects a woman's freedom to choose even if she's making a mistake. Certainly this show tends to be couched in tongue-in-cheek humour so a lot of the darker edges are muted and made more palatable.

 

I also think there's an inconsistency in the way these male-female relationships are viewed. Apparently it's somehow more acceptable for DFS to follow BQ around like a bloodhound. It apparently shows his exclusive dedication and devotion to her. But when LQW follows CY around, she's annoying and CY is bordering on unfaithfulness because he isn't rude enough to her to put her off. (Though I'm not sure that would necessarily work) For me I like to be fair in how we perceive these male-female dynamics. ;)

 

I'm an equal opportunity hater :P I think both DFS and LQW are annoying. But I put up with them because they are firstly, examples of how the OTP are able to affect change around them... plus they are yet another obstacle that the OTP have to overcome before they achieve their happily ever after.

 

On another point, it isn't DFS manipulativeness that bothers me (almost everyone in this show manipulates people to some degree even our beloved protagonists) but the general smug certainty of the rightness of what he's doing. Still I hope everyone's right and he becomes more likable along the way.

Ok, did some digging, and I found out those spoiler scenes where CY falls down the well will be anywhere from so 32-36. That leaves around 15 eps to make things right.

Now, if CY really doesnt die, all we can hope for is that the writer wont let us down by separating them until the very end. We need them to reunite, and stay together!!

Everytime they reunite again they get separated. Like touch and go. 

 

I am very easily obsessed with this type of drama. I only watched up to episode 30 with eng subs, but with so many spoilers, I am so lost right now. Going back when CY falls into the well, I think that happens around late 40s episodes. From episode 35-40 I think it's mainly going to focus on the relationship between the love square. And also the scene where BQ gets abducted into the caves. 

 

But I am seriously confused with the scene where BQ is in chains and CY refuses to touch her and is on the same side as DFS. How are they on the same side? Is CY being manipulated? Are CY and DFS planning something together, and not involving BQ in it for her safety? Is it before the well scene or after? SO many questions, so little patience, can't believe I have to wait till March 07th to understand the full story.

 

I don't know Chinese, so I'm forced to watch ep 31-35 RAW and spoil everything for myself on the forums. SO pitiful.....I wish all the episodes came at once...Or I wish I just didn't know about this drama until March. 

 

But personally I don't think CY is going to die, because at one point in the theme song he comes back as the Lotus Robe Knight, and after ep 35, I don't think that he is going to play the part of a carefree hero anytime soon with the circumstances around the MIngyue Family, BQ, and the Biluotian. So it makes sense that around the ending he comes back as the Lotus Robe Knight to surprise BQ in a sort of happy ending kind of way. Otherwise, I don't think there is any other way to explain that scene.

Just saw this on IG and I can’t wait. I think this must be after BQ sees CY in bed together with LQW.

Spoiler

 

I think it is before, but that bed scene comes afterwards, as CY needs to stay with LCW to look after her as her injuries was serious and DFS said there need to be someone close by to look after her.  I saw a longer trailer, the scene where DFS told CY that, came after this scene you posted.

 

Here you can see the whole scene together that I had mentioned, ep36

So i'm not watching the raw episodes anymore, so I don't spoil it for myself and just slowly watching it with subs. But saw the scene where they are like at the desert and CY is jealous of HBQ with DFS. What happen? Can anyone spoil it for me? :lol:

Spoiler

That is because LCW (the super clinging woman) came looking for CY despite he told her to stay at his  home to rest (due to her injuries).  So BQ is trying to make him jealous.  I thought it was cute the way she laid her head on his (DFS)'s shoulder, she even allowed him to hold her around her waist ..lol

From the spoilers on ig, it looks like they do the deed again. At this point, HBQ should just have a baby! I wish. All i want for the happy ending is for them both to be alive and with a kid. :wub:

Ahem!  Episode 35 recap.  :D

 

  Hide contents

  BQ answers that he has more negative qualities and she's afraid the more time she spends with him, she'll just discover more of those.  He asks her to name a few and she uses his sleeping habits as an example.  She tells him that he snores and farts.  LOL!  He refuses to believe her and she's like, "What?  You're too busy sleeping to know and you think the servant maids around you are going to tell you that?  It's only someone like me who has the heart to tell you the truth."  I love her.  She then adds that she hears snoring is a type of illness, and as a doctor, he should take care to cure himself.  But he says what does it matter if he doesn't cure himself.  After all, like she said, he can't hear it and only the person next to him will experience it -- and that'll be her.  She tells him not to worry because it definitely won't be her, and then rolls over to catch some Zs. 

 

 It's not until CY offers to taste the water/food first that he then allows BQ to partake of the same.  In exchange, DFS shares the fruit from before.  As CY takes a bite, DFS says, "My wife and I plucked them ourselves."  THE LOOK THAT CY SHOOTS AT BQ IS EQUALLY AS AMAZING AS BQ IMMEDIATELY COUGHING UP THE BREAD THAT SHE'S EATING WHEN SHE HEARS WHAT HE SAYS.  LOL!  She asks him, "Who's you're wife?!?!?!"  DFS answers that of course it's her since they have a marriage contract, but BQ reminds him that she's told him a hundred times over that she's going to return the money and so he'd better stop going around telling people that she's his person because she's got nothing to do with him. 

 

He grabs at BQ, pulling her to his side, and CY reacts by putting out his hand.  The two men end up palm to palm.  DFS pulls away first when he realizes that CY has some martial arts skills.  CY then tells him that it should be up to BQ to decide what she does next.  DFS finally introduces himself and CY returns the introduction by giving a false name.  BQ then steps in to introduce herself as, "Zhu Zhu," and it is so precious how CY responds by smiling at her and asking, "Zhu Zhu?"  She says yes and asks him if it isn't a pretty sounding name, and CY smiles even more broadly.  OH THE SMILES.  DFS, meanwhile, looks on in disgust and announces that the three of them will leave together. 

 

CY responds by telling her that she reminds him of his wife, who would even eat a mouse when hungry.  He comments that he was so surprised when he first heard of this that he once stole into someone else's kitchen to fetch her a chicken drumstick. 

 

CY, on the other hand, responds that it's just a bit of a family matter and besides, DFS never asked.  AND THEN HE SAYS (THIS IS SERIOUSLY THE SWEETEST, ESPECIALLY AS HE'S LOOKING DIRECTLY AT BQ WHEN HE SAYS IT): My wife and I have gone through a lot together.  Even though we haven't been able to meet often and spend a lot of time apart, I spend my nights worrying about her.  She is forever my true love and that'll never change in this lifetime.  *sighs*  BQ responds that "she" is really fortunate to be his wife.  And CY says that she's had to live a life of hardship, so he naturally has to treat her better and he hates himself for not having met her earlier otherwise he would've been able to help minimize the hardships that she had to go through.  BQ points out that so long as "she" could meet him, that's not too late.  And by this point, DFS can take it no longer.  He gets up and goes to feel BQ's forehead, suggesting that she might have a fever.  Haha.

 

That's when DFS confesses that he won't let her go because he knows if he doesn't keep her close, then he may really lose out on her.  So he's not going to give up.  At that, it's CY turns to interrupt them as he offers BQ some water.  LOL.

 

BQ immediately agrees and says that after she's found her family member, they'll travel next to Dong Ping Jun.  After they all go back to sleep, there's this cute little bit where BQ still wants to eat the snake kebabs but CY won't let her get up.  He pushes her head back down and when she holds up two fingers, and then one, he puts each finger down until finally she just gnaws on one of her fingers instead.  Cuuuuuuuute.

 

 

 

 

@themarchioness  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for recapping episode 35! I could kiss you right now.

 

Sorry to cut your post, I just wanted to highlight all my favourite parts. I felt kinda bad for DFS seeing at how he really likes BQ and is desperate to make her fall for him. BUT I am totally rooting for CY. I am actually glad all 3 of them ended up in the desert together. It gave CY such a good opportunity to tell BQ how he really felt. I love how calm he was listening to BQ and DFS and using every opportunity to tell BQ how much she means to him - even narrating how they first met and the time she was about to eat a mouse. You can see he adores her. We all knew he loved her but to hear him actually say it out loud.. :wub:

 

This part: "My wife and I have gone through a lot together.  Even though we haven't been able to meet often and spend a lot of time apart, I spend my nights worrying about her.  She is forever my true love and that'll never change in this lifetime. "

 

What I also liked about this episode is seeing how well BQ and CY work together. All BQ and CY have to do is look at each other and you can practically hear them talking to each other. That part where CY first sees them, he gets off his horse and is all smiles walking to BQ but she just gives him a look and right away he becomes wary of DFS and knew to give a fake name.

 

I must say though that even though I am shipping CY and BQ, I am enjoying all the bantering between BQ and DFS. You gotta admit there's a certain comfort level where they just tell each other whatever comes to mind. They are the comic relief in some ways.

 

It's cute how BQ got annoyed with LQW and started flirting with DFS. CY's reaction was priceless!! 

 

I am probably going to watch this episode a million times.

I definitely saw that part and understood what happened. Lol. :lol:

@turtle0217 & @mouse007, you are both very welcome.  My mom's already texted me to say that today's episodes are also very good.  When i expressed jealousy that she was already done watching, she told me to work hard.  :lol:  I'm going to try my best to leave work on time again tonight!

 

@mouse007, episode 35 is definitely an episode that's worth watching over and over again.  I also liked all those scenes you highlighted and agree with your comment that BQ and CY work well together.  In fact, one of my favorite scenes has always been that one where she feigned fainting spells in front of his dad's concubine and he smoothly went along with it.  At the time, she didn't like him and although he liked her as the beggar, he didn't like her as his father's illegitimate daughter.  But even under those circumstances where they were constantly butting heads, they worked well together!  This is the charm of the OTP. 

 

I've enjoyed the parts of the drama where the OTP had to be apart, but now that they're back together it's ACES.

Episode 35 was an utter delight! Especially the desert scenes when CY finally makes his entrance. It was like watching a comedy skit of a love triangle being playfully enacted through innuendo and undercurrents. Props to all three actors for such an entertaining sequence.

 

DFS plays up the petulant little boy act to the T especially once he's left out in the cold by the OTP. :lol: I almost... the stress is on "almost"...  felt sorry for him. ;) He was completely left out of the conversation not understanding this strange turn of events... the unexpected, open flirtation between the OTP. It took the wind right out of his sails. The clueless look on his face as he was trying to decipher the undercurrents of their conversation was a laugh and a half. There is a history between CY and BQ that he can't possibly know and share.

 

Of course the humour came to a screeching halt when LQW appeared. The triangle turned into a square. Aright, alright... it was still kind of funny.

 

I am always so impressed with ZBB in his scenes with Ariel Lin. I am in love with the way he looks at her. It's as if the whole world doesn't matter except the two of them. Of course the killer smile always... always helps raise their chemistry to the stratosphere. :D I think that's the real reason why the OTP can't be together too often because I'll be too blinded by the killer smile and ensuing chemistry... Talk about oozing with cuteness on one level and giving off heat radiation on another. 

 

The desert sequence also shows the contrast between the two men and why I root for CY all the way. I have no doubt that both care for her. And it isn't a case of who saw her first etc. To me DFS is still a kid. A little boy who is accustomed to getting his own way and still thinking of BQ as some kind of prize. On the other hand, even if CY did grow up as the son of a prince, he has gone through a lot. I suspect that thinking that he lost her once really changed him in how he values her. I fine the respect that he has for BQ very attractive and of course the fact that he knows that she can handle herself without his intervention is the biggest plus factor of all.

Episode 35 got me laughed so hard and is probably the best episode so far! I couldn’t agree more with all of you guys said! I don’t know what to add more, I really enjoyed the scenes between CY and HBQ, it was so fking sweet like omggggg I couldn’t hold myself and giggle all the time lmao. Also, I feel so bad for DFS even tho I don’t ship him w/ HBQ but still loooool poor him when HBQ was so mean to him! Aaaaaand oh god, I didn’t want to see her -.- she’s so annoying but here she is, LQW. Funny how HBQ instant changed behavior towards DFS and he’s really enjoying it lmaoooo. Anyways, so glad I’ve been busy kinda those days so I couldn’t watch right after episodes were out so now I still have two episodes to watch hihihihi

@40somethingahjumma sorry for cutting your post but I couldn’t agree more on your points above. When ZBB smiles at Ariel Lin, it takes the heat up to a whole other level. I can’t help but smile myself. 

 

I also really appreciated your point about CY respecting BQ and knowing she can handle herself. During the entire time in the desert, we see DFS pull her, grab her and forcefully put himself between her and CY. But the entire time DFS and BQ were bickering, CY just calmly listened and let BQ handle it herself. It says to me that he is both confident in himself and also knows her well enough to know when she actually needs help. I think one of the things that CY finds attractive with BQ is her ability to take care of herself, her wit and how she’s able to adapt to any situation and rise above it.

@themarchioness I feel like that kid behind you who’s watching over your shoulder and constantly checking if you’ve seen the new episode so you can tell me all about it. Hahaha!

 

The scene you mentioned is also one of my favourite scenes and one I’ve replayed many times. Because yes, you can really see how well they play together and how well they know each other. I loved that even though as CY he was acting cold towards BQ, you can actually tell he genuinely cares for her in that scene. 

 

Ugh guys, I just love this drama so much!!!
