Gotta give it to CPP, our Master Inventor! :lol::lol::lol: Aside from pizza, who will forget his juicer and instant noodle? 

 

It was cute/weird in 1, annoying in 2. He invents a self heating pot and I swear to God there was a scene that lasted for 30 seconds where it was just Fuzi quietly eating out of it on his own, while there was a big fight going on on the NQ side. It was such a weird directorial decision, other than to say they really needed the money (I think it was ppl, but I may be wrong. Why else do that??)

See, that's another resemblance to Joy of Life, all those references to modern life and icons. While Joy of Life does provide an explanation, I think it's the screenwriter's creativity, filling in the plothole of the original novel. 

 

I totally appreciated that about joy of life on the first episode, I went to read the novel to confirm how it fit and it wasn't close on actual execution but aligned on theme. Regardless, you get an explanation. The ending of EN/Nightfall is heavily reliant on the concept of him being from another world (which is so weird to me, since it always feels like a tangential plot point throughout) so I can't wait to see how they deviate from it.

Ah yes, I forgot that they plan to start shooting in March. I'm all for the extra-sanitary version! LOL. Still can't get myself excited for a teacher-pupil (disguised) romantic relations. From what I gathered, even the characters have around 12 year age-gap and Arthur's character starts as an underage student of Leo's? Needless to say it bothers me :D. But there's also several lifetimes plot, I think, that might show that they're destined to be together. I'm not sure how those things work or in what context though.

 

I don't think I've seen other bl adaptations, at least not knowingly, so I've no idea what's normal on how to make them acceptable for Chinese censors. But I can't believe they would keep the romance obvious at all. I'm very curious too!

Arthur IF CNY greeting

 

Oh Arthur, please don't remind us about eating in moderation. I mean -- it's New Year! Time to gather with the family! Of course we're gonna eat like there's no tomorrow! :D 

 

BTW, thanks again @epinklyn for the constant supply of Arthur's news and updates :wub:. I agree with you, his Chinese New Year's pictures are always the happy one. It always warms my heart when I see him smile goofily, because most often than not he's quite guarded LOL.

Btw our boy change his Weibo's profile pic...

 

I saw that even him changing the profile pic made news! I think because he very rarely changes it? That Superman picture, too, had been there forever LOL. 

 

BTW, unsure if you gals have noticed it, but there's a significant increase of interest in Arthur. I noted that there are least 2 new Twitter accounts dedicated to him. The news  about the Husky drama has indeed heightened his profile. While I'm happy that he's gaining more international fans, I'm also wary of the consequences -- unnecessary fanwars, incessant shipping, etc. That thought alone sends shiver down my spine lololol. If that happens, I'll retreat to our happy little chat corner here.

I *think* his original was from an American show called Archer (which is quite subversive and risque.. i always wondered if he was a fan, or just thought the pic was cool, or maybe because Archer sounds like Arthur? https://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/archer)

Many people will refer to The Untamed, cleverly disguised as a bromance, but still hints at the romance feelings between the male leads. I haven't seen it so I can't tell how the director and writers did it :).

Ahhh... thank you! The link was geoblocked, but I googled it. You're right, that's interesting. I think first maybe because Archer sounds like Arthur. He could be a fan too, or found the show... cool? You know how teens love provocative shows ;-).

Hahahaha i was not really noticed about it, but somewhow my IG is showing more arthur especially the ENs, and those make me happy since everybody missing of his NQ yeahhh! Back then the other NQ is hijacking arthur's hashtag, but i never removed it, and now it is back to our original NQ. And of course more and more about Husky drama. About twitter i dont know, i think i followed less about arthur.

Yeah XZ n WYB's chemistry is on point! They like bestfriend, they like soulmate, no need to talk much but can understand each other really well, we can see through their eyes contact. Even the bts are so enjoyable to watch LOL. I think the success of the untamed because the follow the novel faithfully (outside the BL), and like you said cleverly disguised the BL into bromance but not that crystal clear bromance as well. You guys should watch it, well maybe for an introduction to "BL" LOL. I have only watched The Untamed, not yet the others like the Guardian. Since the story also fit with my preference (note: at first i have no idea the story is based on BL novel, i dont even know the word BL before LOL).

I have watched Guardian and the two leads are like platonic close friends so if Arthur chose to act in this new drama adaptation from BL novel, I guess it will be like that.  To an aspiring actor, I guess the character is one that will entice the actor Arthur to accept the role not the script itself.  Actors and fans do have different expectations.  This was what I learnt from my favorite actor.

 

When is Legend of Awakening going to be broadcast?  Want to see Arthur onscreen again.

 

When I read that EN2 will be airing I was surprised that LOA wasn't  broadcast as yet since this was filmed much earlier than EN2.  I have watched a few episodes of EN2 sadly Dylan don't understand the character he portrayed as NQ as it's no longer NQ of EN1 and I have to check the novel to confirm some scenes that I thought was out of character.  Where is the shameless, prideful and respectful NQ?  Also there's something wrong with the script writing.  The same actors in EN2 also couldn't save the drama.  It was disappointing as expected and I'm not going to continue to watch as there are better dramas out there currently to watch.  It's better to read the novel instead.

Yeah no rumour yet until now. But i hope it will air after the Pillow Book, to avoid head to head competition.

Sorry for hijacking Arthur's thread, but here's to @Lbpg -- you may like to read this blog post on Joy of Life. The blogger loves Ever Night 1 too. She reads Nightfall and Joy of Life's original novels.

Ladies, I was reading an article about the situation in Wuhan, which features a picture of a Wuhanite biking against the background of a quiet Wuhan city and the bridge over Yangzi River. It suddenly reminds me of My Best Summer, since they shot the movie in Wuhan. Arthur and He Landou also went there to promote the movie. I remember the scene when Geng Geng runs along the bridge to go to the meeting point with Yu Huai; also the scene of both them on the ferry -- which was said to be the main transportation to cross Yangzi River before the bridge was built. 

 

I know Arthur donated to the efforts to help curbing and controlling the new coronavirus epidemic. I'm sure it feels bittersweet for him, Landou, and the other cast and crew to see the unfortunate condition Wuhanites (and the rest of the Chinese people) are now dealing with. :(
