Haven’t been this excited for a drama in a while :wub: Zhao Lu Si is excelling in her usual adorkable element thus far. I’m going to follow the airing schedule and watch all the raws as quickly as I can. Some translation help @JoyceDreamer

 

  Hide contents

In ep1 the princess has a loyal maidservant Ah Man by her side who died in ep2 while trying to help her escape from the enemy’s demonic army. Her last words to the princess were: live on well on behalf of Ah Man. 
 

Ep3 flashback shows: the princess’ shifu who trained her in magical arts decided to give her a disguise in order for her to fulfil the mission of gathering a mystical lantern that can annihilate all demonic forces if she were to sacrifice her own blood and soul. It was not explicitly mentioned why she would take on her maidservants face but I’m guessing it was due to her dying words in ep1.
 

Furthermore, when the princess went up to the mountain forest while searching for the lantern and got caught within a formation, a magic mirror that was capable of showing one’s true form reflected the princess’ original face in ep1. So it’s confirmed that the princess took on the face of her maidservant. 

 

 

Thanks so much for translating

He looked at the painting for 1000years before he found the same person in mortal realm.

Apparently it is a prophecy as she have the power to call on allies to "defeat the orcs by throwing the ring into Mordor"

She unlocked the male lead's fighting spirit to erase the white dragon in 1 second of dark power beam.

In the ending theme you can see their group have a few more guys going to a volcanoland (mordor from Lord-of-the-Rings), probably the evil kingdom's 2 princes were convinced by her to leave the dark side.

Thanks for this explanation too!

As I said I'm really liking this but I feel like i only get about 70% of what is happening onscreen:lol:  I think I might wait for a week or two until there are more English  translated episodes then I will come back and binge watch!

No wonder I thought Qing Qing’s face looked strange, and was wondering why the servants all thought she was so beautiful (even QC’s ‘husband’ was a fan!) haha ... that explains it. 

 

I find it strange that Xiao Bai is a mirror. I thought only living things could do good deeds and cultivate thousands of years to become deities? Don’t really understand this world. But anyway, Xiao Bai is cute.

This actress was terminated for public misdemeanor and the film studio used computer to replace her face with another actress , resulting in unusually long neck.

 

replacement face

 

 

original actress

 

Thank you very much, I was looking for this info everywhere!

As soon as I saw her, I knew they were using deepfake but this has been the worst I have ever seen! Especial since EP06... In case you didn't know deepfake before, google it and check out some examples. They can be crazy good!

That's great news! I am glad to see a drama with a strong female lead and male lead that isn't the typical aloof, cold guy doing so well.  Do you know why it's doing so well? I like the leads but they are not big stars, are they? Is it based o a popular property or something?

@raziela No, Zhao Lu Si and Zheng Ye Cheng aren't huge stars, and yes, the original novel the drama was based on was pretty popular. The author also wrote another book that's adapted into an upcoming drama, Love and Redemption.

So I was reading book reviews on douban, and turns out the title of the novel 三千鸦杀 is based on a poem written by a Japanese samurai, Shinsaku Takasugi. The original poem is 三千世界のからすを杀し ぬしと朝寝がしてみたい, which translated in Chinese is 三千世界鸦杀尽 与君共枕到天明. So basically, it means to kill all the world's birds in order to let their lover have a restful sleep and not be awakened by the sound of the bird's chirping. It's to signify how deep the person's love is for their lover.

Aye, the page on Avirtualvoyage also mentioned, and I quote: "In ancient China, crows were believed to represent the Sun. The killing of 3000 (just a number to mean A LOT) crows means to kill the sun, so that dawn never comes and I can sleep with you for eternity. AKA sometimes a euphemism for death." :sweat_smile:  I don't know if that sounds grim or romantic...

Let's stick to romantic haha.

I really have to learn the actor's name, but for now he's Feng'Er to me from Royal Nirvana. Lol, the lead male actor here is soo cute, he's like your cute and sweet typical guy next door. He got that beautiful smile going on that just seems so genuine and sweet. I'm gonna wait for more episodes to air, and then will watch it.

I know they have quite a few fans but I didn't think either are hugely popular just judging by their previous works.

Thanks! So the novel is well known which explains some of the popularity.

 

I really like the origin stories and meaning of the crows in the title.  I think The Killing of Three Thousand Crows is such a poetic title-much better than the bland Love of a Thousand Years they are calling it on Youtube. On the other hand, I can understand why they changed it for English speaking audiences because it does seem like a random title otherwise.

Fantastic news! The dramas I like are rarely popular whilst the ones I can't get into at all seem to be topping all the charts so this is nice to see the opposite for once:lol:

I could hear Zhao Lu Si was using her own voice as she has a slight lisp so I can always tell when it's her speaking as opposed to being dubbed. Zheng Ye Cheng looks much more youthful here in  his casual clothes.  His look in the drama makes him look more mature.

Thanks.  I just read the Virtual Voyage post and it cleared a few other things about how and why the male lead fell for the heroine and what the scenes in the red outfit and drum were about. Very helpful!^_^
