[ MAINLAND CHINESE DRAMA 2019 ] The Untamed 陈情令

Recommended Posts

^thanks for sharing, I will check it out^^. Now, I'm finishing the special edition and watching the donghua :)!!!

edit: The donghua is so nice. The animation is well done, and much better than I imagined. WWX is still so naughty and goofy. I really like the voice actor for LZ, he sounds so smooth---Kind of remind me of the voice actor for Yehua in TTMOPB. Is the donghua a bromance, because of restrictions too?

Yeah! I love the donghua too! WWX is much more badass in the donghua than he is in the drama and closer to how he is in the novel. Would have been nice if they made WWX more badass in the drama too but I think they have to tone down the character because of broadcasting restrictions.

 

Woah. You are so sharp. It is the same voice actor. In fact, he is also the voice actor for LZ in the drama :rolleyes: I really like JYL's voice in the donghua too. Gentle but determined. 

 

I feel that the donghua seems more focused on the action and less on the interaction between the characters. If you want something more than bromance, I suggest you take a look at the manhua :wub:

The donghua is strictly platonic. It won’t make it past the censors otherwise.

What??!! So the voice for LZ is the same for Yehua in TTOPB^^!!! OMG, his voice is so smooth and nice! It also matched LZ's expressions and speech well.

Yeah. And one of the fans made a video for The Untamed using a mixture of his voice over in TTOPB and The Untamed :lol:

At 1:05, they used what Yehua said to Susu when he married her - From today onwards, you are my wife. Since I married you, I will not let you down - for the scene where LZ and WY pray to the Jiang ancestors XD

 

 

There is also a part two from LZ POV

Some eagle-eyed fans spotted something lovey-dovey in a photo released together with the special edition of The Untamed. You can view a video of it here

 

Spoiler

Title of the video - The water shaped the rock into a heart shape, is it envy of us?

Beginning of the video - When we hold hands, the rock beside us becomes the shape of heart too.

 

Edit: Just found the screen cap online. You can see something whitish on a small rock / stepping stone near the center of the photo :lol:

And in a promo photo of the special edition, it has a Chinese character of Double Happiness, which is used on weddings in China. So they also basically confirmed what fans have been saying all along, that they really did get married when they bowed three times and it was filmed intentionally. These two are not bros, they're in love and married and end up together. Yes the ending in episode 50 shows that Wei Wuxian did come back to Cloud Recesses to Lan Wangji but there are still people who don't realize it, so the special edition re-edited it in a way that there is no doubt. Also? They showed us the real ending they were planning to all along, them in the waterfall together. 
 

favorite. BL. Adaptation. Ever

Yeah! It is actually a poster made by WeTV Taiwan to celebrate the successful broadcast of the special edition of the drama. But we know exactly what they are celebrating instead with that Double Happiness word :wub: 

 

The bowing to ancestors three times is definitely intentional! Right after that three bow, WY spoke of Lady's Jiang's bad temper but he only bowed twice to apologise and pay his respect to her. Similarly, in ep 20 when WY and JC returned to Lotus Pier briefly to pay their respects to the ancestors after killing Wen Chao, they only bowed two times :wub:

 

EP-wwTgU8AA2xn_?format=jpg&name=medium

 

Rough translation of the Chinese text:

#Wefamily has a joyous occasion (note 囍 for marriage is used instead of the usual 喜)

Congratulations on the successful broadcast of The Untamed Special Edition

Finish this drama

#From now on you are mine

 

LZ *takes out sword and lift WY's head*  FROM NOW ON YOU ARE MINE 

 

:P:P:P

Just an old interview with the producer of The Untamed regarding role selection. Yibo was actually eliminated twice and only got the role after the producer met him in person. What a close call!

I've just finished the 1rst ep, I feel it's interesting especially ...the Love story

but I saw some comts people said that they changed a little the story, it's not 

the original of manhwa ???!! I think bc the vewers are almost " desperated housewives " hehehehe

so there're restrictions, they can't doas the movie.

The same with " Love in the moonlight", the drama is different from the manhwa too

it's the shame !!! I'd like there are many " bromance" scenes !

Btw I'll finish this drama for sure

It's nice to see how they got picked to played their characters. Sometimes, the character they played is more or less similar to them^^. I cannot imagined anyone playing LZ and WY^^. Both XZ and YB were perfect for their role. They did justice for them. Of course, the donghua version was so nice to watch!!! I just finished it!! I like how in the donghua version, each event is short-but also clarify what's going to happened in the titled word. I have to say, the Jiang family and the relationships between the Jiang siblings really make an impact on my emotional roller coaster. I feel like they all suffered so much, even in the live action and donghua version. Also, Wen Ning and We Qing siblings' storyline were so sad too-in the live and donghua version. The Jiang family, from their loss at Lotus Cove to Yanli's death-so sad in both live and donghua versions. On a happier note, the donghua makes every characters look so good looking---even old man Jiang Fiengman and evil guy Wen Rouhan^^. The donghua creation exceed my expectations^^--really great Tencent did it!

Yeah. I was not convinced by YB at first but grew to love him and his micro expressions. And like you say, cannot imagine anyone else as LZ and WY at all. Same goes for JC, Lan Xi Chen and JGY. The producer must be a hardcore fan of the novel :lol: This drama is just so full of regrets. All the main character (except main cp) either dies or live with some form of regret for the rest of their lives. My heart feels so empty at the end of the drama and I think this is why it is so hard for me to let go. I wish everyone can have the happy ending they deserve.

 

Oh yes! I love Jiang Feng Mian in the donghua too lol... He looks like a gentle scholar XD I had a really hard time accepting the ahjussi in the drama XD Same goes for Nie Ming Jue even though the actor that plays him actually looks quite good without the beard. Sigh, anime and the unrealistic expectations it creates!

Yeap, they changed the story quite a bit but it is basically still the same. You get more information about the characters from the drama so I think you will enjoy the Manhwa more after watching the drama. And don't worry about the bromance bit, there are more than enough to spoil your replay button :lol:

They just released the costume fitting photos for WY. I wish they had used this look for Yiling Patriach. Just need to change the inner piece and belt to red and he would look like a real badass. I am sure Jin Zi Xuan wouldn't dare to mess with him then XD

You mean the present? The current present time starts around ep 30 to 32. The past timeline so good, and so sad.

Watching the Special ed, and love all the WY/WG moments. 

Yanli actress is so pretty!!! She looks similar to the donghua version-graceful and kind.

Wen Qing actress is cute and pretty. I feel the female actors for the live action, their looks so cute and pretty like the donghua version.

Hi, where can I watch the Special ed ???

I've have just finished but I must rewatch second time bc I passed many action scenes 

so maybe I lost something....for ex : When WWx asks LZ how he recongnize him;

LZ said " think about it "??! For me, it's the time when WWx plays the song LZ made with

his flute right ????!

It's a good drama, I watch rarely chinese drama bc it's very ..........long, and I like this one not bc the scenario

( for me it's the most important thing in a movie or drama), but bc the actors and the music !

It's not bc they are handsome (   really they are hehehe) but theirs images look alike exactly like characters

in manhua? The music is perfect honestly !

For the actings : I think the 2 leading roles did well theirs characters but there's a plus for Yi Bo who

plays LZ : playing without talking is difficult but he expresses his feelings through his eyes just perfect.

I think this role is made for him, the role for life and I hope he'll play another character to break this image

like Leo Dicaprio who broke his image in Titanic. If you stuck in one role'image, you can't improves yours

skills and difficult to find another good character. Like the actor who plays harry Potter, after HP's movies

he can't play others bc of his image in there.

I watched on youtube on tencent. Yes, I agreed :)!!! YB is cute and handsome. You're right on point, LZ recognized WY/WWX when he played the flute and the tune.
