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

Recommended Posts

 

@cheekychipmunk_stv, see my post from yesterday about why HBQ and her mother are so valuable: 

 

 

Some people want to send her to the Palace because they believe she truly is the illegitimate daughter of the Seventh Prince.  A reasonable belief given that he has billed her as such for years and made everyone aware that he is looking for her.  By delivering her to the Seventh Prince's doorstep, they believe they will win the Seventh Prince's favor.  Not surprisingly, everyone's looking out for their own interests (including the Seventh Prince).  Poor HBQ is caught in the struggle between . . . literally everyone!

Ariel Lin looks absolutely beautiful in this show. It's like she hasn't aged a bit since It started with a kiss days. Hehe. 

 

My mom and I were saying just this very thing the other day.  It's like she's drunk from the Fountain of Youth.  You can't tell at all that there are 11 years between her and Vin Zhang.  Here's a cute article about Ariel's impressions of Vin Zhang: https://www.jaynestars.com/news/ariel-lins-impression-of-vin-zhang-during-filming-of-legend-of-hua-buqi/

Your mom is also watching this drama?! Wait why am I even asking this, she always has an eye for good dramas. Haha. I didn't know that there was a 11 year age gap between them. Gosh, they look almost as they are about the same age, dare I say that Ariel looks younger. LOL.

Oh, it was hilarious!  She called me the second day after the drama started airing and asked me in this very round about way, "Are you watching anything good these days?"  I told her I was and had thought of her while watching it, and wanted to recommend it.  She asked me for the name and when I identified this drama, she said, "I'm watching it too!"  She had called to recommend it to me as well.  :) Then she went on to tell me how she'd already watched all 8 episodes (all the eps that were available at the time) and asked me how far along I was.  When I told her I had only watched 4, she kept repeating throughout our conversation that she'd watched 8 episodes.  I finally had to point out that some of us have to also work!  :P She didn't want to discuss further with me after that, as I wasn't as far along as she was.  Haha.

It's shocking on the 11 year age gap. I literally did not know that she was that old and he was that young, because honestly, bin bin looks a lot over to me. I don't know he just seems mature, that's probably why. Lol.

Poor ZBB said people usually don't believe him about his age.  He looks mature even though he was actually the baby of the agency! 

He's actually even younger than Dilireba who he usually gets paired up with in their agency projects. I think also because he is shy and he never used to talk much so he seemed very serious but he is actually really warm and sweet.

 

I remember he said in an interview a  little while ago he always has to carry his ID with him otherwise people don't believe how young he is.  Actually the interviewer even made him show his ID to prove it! :lol:

Hi everyone! Ariel Lin is back in historical drama land - she totally rocks this genre.

I've currently watched up to episode 6, and I was wondering where on earth is this time travel element? Maybe the fact that she is a goddess means that she has the ability to transcend space and time? 

I'm also loving CY/LYK character and his interaction with HBQ. I think it's going to be hilarious to see CY fall in love with HBQ, who he currently think is his father's illegitimate daughter.

Just wanted to drop a note to say I enjoyed this drama as well.  Although ep 4 was quite boring but thankfully after that it was quite entertaining.  In terms of quality it's not as good as some recent dramas shown but still okay once we got used to it.

 

The term "Wang Ye" can be prince or duke.  If it is prince then the person is related to royal family.  If it is duke, then it will be officials that were bestowed to this honorable title.  FYI, even though called duke, this title consists of several ranks like 1st, 2nd, 3rd in feudal China.

Before the drama aired, I remember it described as having a time travel element to it.  Specifically, that HBQ and Chen Yu were a couple in the modern/present day, that somehow traveled back in time, and when they did, he became a prince's son and she a beggar, and they didn't know each other and had to find their way back together.  I know the drama is based on a book so I can only presume that earlier description came from the book, because that was the only source material that people could rely on to guess at what the drama would be about.  But since the drama's airing, there's been no mention of the time travel aspect and drama descriptions have been updated to exclude it.  My guess then is that when the creators of this drama decided to adapt the book into a drama, they decided to forego that time travel part and focus solely on the historical part of the OTP's story.  Personally, I'm okay with that.  Time travel's never been my favorite genre, and I like the drama as it is.  

 

Like you, I'm really enjoying the CY/LYK and HBQ interactions and wish I could get a full episode of just the two of them.  Haha.  I know, I know.  Wishful thinking.  ;)

I think they had to remove the time travel aspect due to SARFT restrictions as dramas aired on TV are no longer allowed to show time travel.

That... makes a lot of sense, actually.  Not surprised to hear that.

I watched the first 3 episodes english subtitles and it was like confusing on the father's title. Like first episode, his people address him as "Prince" when Xue Fei (BuQi's mother) died. Then in episode 2, he was labeled as the Duke, and now Lord. So I'm just confused on the father's title. I'm sticking to him being Lord and Chen Yu as Young Master. It's just some confusing from the english subtitles.

 

His official title is Qi Wang Ye which I believe translates into 7th Duke. On episode 2, he refers to the current emperor as his brother (huang xiong, royal brother) so he should be the 7th brother of the emperor so officially as a Prince and son of the previous emperor.

 

I believe his official rank is first prince. I can't really tell which dynasty this is taking place in. The titles may differ depending on time period. Chen Yu is referred to as shizi which is a title given to the heir of a first ranked prince. On episode 3, Chen Yu's servant guy (I forgot his name) referred to Bu Qi as junzhu, a title given to the daughter of a first ranked prince. So this makes me believe the father is a first ranked prince. If he was a a second ranked prince then the daughter would be referred to as xianzhu rather than junzhu. So I am guessing he's a prince of first rank...?

wow u guys are very knowledgeable on all this lols....first rank prince is as in the prince mother is also of a nobility i assume?

 

cause i remember hearing if the prince mother is just a servant previously they will never be held in a high regards.....they will sort of an outcast of a sort?

 

is that how they distribute the ranking?

I agreed with what @moon-flower said that Chen Yu's father most likely is the prince of first rank.  For that reason the king treated him as a hostage and confined him to move about only within the city walls because his status threatened the king's position.

i'm just up to episode 4 in this.....and im almost flipping....everyone wanted BuQi for a reason... :/

 

her parting JiuShu and AhHuang is the only 2 that really care for her....and to lost both in such a short span of times is honestly heartbreaking for her........

 

one thing...i find BuQi is not dirty enough as a beggar lols and JiuShu is too well groom to be one either lols

They're out!  Viki's episode 1 is at 100%, episode 2 is at 99%, Episode 3 is at 98%, and Episode 5 is at 98%.  Episode 4 is at 65% and Episode 6 is at 6% (as of the writing of this post, of course).  Episodes 7 and and 8 won't be released until next week.  If Viki is blocked for you, I understand 'other sites' have picked it up. 

 

Gosh yes, saw the drama and I'm loving it so much...finally got the subs out!

Thanks so much subbers!!!

 

Loved Vin since his Love O2O days...so cute!
