It's no wonder this drama caught my eye and brought back some memories too.  It has some amazing moments:blush:

Watching without subs but romantic moments have a universal language all their own:heart:

I don’t remember watching this scene. Which ep is this pic from?

It is from a deleted scene.

Now I can understand why we dont get to see any kisses at all in our gem of a drama after watching ep 16 where GYZ was having lunch XX & her parents.:rolleyes:

 

When XX was rude to GYZ, her dad cajoled her for her behaviour and apologised to him and mentioned it was his and wife's fault for spoiling her.B)

 

I was surprised when GYZ replied that he didnt mind as she was still YOUNG!:lol::lol::lol:

IMHO, actually GYZ has always been very protective (unknown to her on many occasions) caring (getting hot water for her to wash clothes & later bringing them home to wash them) and tender with XX. Just watch the drunken scene where he wiped her face and neck so gentlely. And the scene at the bridge where he stroke her head and cuddled her so tenderly.:heart:

 

YES! GYZ loves her to bits but knowing that she's so PURE & INNOCENT while staying together with her, he is gentlemanly and patient enough to wait to be intimate with her. We can just imagine how he'd act when they're engaged and married.:D If he were to date XMT, we'd see many kisses. Kudos to the director to hilight this.:wub:

 

The final scene during the celebration after successfully escaping from the exploding building, had me in stitches!:P

 

GYZ was patting XX's helmet so playfully like he'd do that to his own sister! :tounge_xd:

In the novel, the situp scene is at episode 6, during the training, GYZ was asking XLC about Mulan, why nobody found out shes a girl, Huang Song said maybe becoz her teammates are stupid, when their lips touched accidentally, XLC run off and leave, the instructor is supposed to followed him but GYZ said not to and admitted that theyve kissed. XLC got depressed

The scene next is at the bar where Tan Xiaojun called her Xie Xiang and Huang Song is there, they explained it is her pet name. GYZ chose XLC to walk her home than QMT. I thought he is falling for Xie Xiang soon, but the situp scene just happened and he started to care/fall for her.

 Please... please tell us more what happened in the novel that was not shown in the drama specially concerning our OTP and Junshang too...

Hi @Mauee_A is the novel online somewhere , or hardcopy available - in english by any chance . I just hoped with the success of this drama that somehow the novel got miraculously available lol  ( and i do wish that i spoke mandarin because once hooked on c dramas it is such a loss for us not understanding all the nuances and meanings ....and definitely no to voice overs ...ughhh ...i like hearing the Chinese  language in these dramas , they are part of what makes them so great)

How on earth did our GYZ get away with his "special" sexy haircut (we're not complaining though:D) when others had to spot the conventional short hairdo. :rolleyes:

I supposed he must have bribed the officer-in-charge just like what XX did with her 1st medical checkup (explained by someone here) as corruption was so rampant then.B)

 

Xu Kai with his big expressive eyes, cheeky wink, sexy hair cut and the way he swaggers in his super long coat is killing me!:tounge_xd:

@gladys57  Sargent Guo seems to sport the same type of hair style , so two rebells are hairliscious LOL ...

 

I went back to re watch this drama once all the episodes were subbed . First time watching i mostly concentrated on our XX and GYZ , but now that i know that they are  walking into the sunshine, LOL  i went back to re watch the drama from the beginning. 

And this time i really got into Qu Man Ting , she has the most beautiful fashion that i have seen from the 1900's ...the details , colours and style are impeccable :thumbsup:     but also her insights into Shen Ting Bai when she was speaking to her sister , i think ep 6 and into her father as well and her stance on marriage at that age and time seriously fascinated me this time around. 

Spoiler

Based on the information that i saw, QU Man Ting is the daughter of Sargent Guo 's girlfriend that got raped and married somebody else - or somebody else married her when she woke up from the coma pregnant.  So when Qu Man Ting came to Sargent Guo to ask for XX as per body guard, he knew exactly who she was ???? ...so at the end in ep 46 i think when she found out that her current parents - which she suspected or intuitively verbalized to the bar girlfriend , are not her parents they must have alluded that Sargent Guo is somehow responsible for her birth .  I also have to assume that she told Shen Ting Bai and yet he still loves her no matter what and always  smiles only when she is in his vicinity :)

Okey, "fresh recruit" here haha.

I know the party is kind of over but I still wanted to show my support for this awesome production. 

 

I almost never watch chinese dramas because they are just not my taste, but after reading the plot line for AMA I somehow wanted to give it a try. And then I was like “Ladies, you had my curiosity ... but now you have my attention” after I saw Bai Lu and Xu Kai together haha. Their chemistry is so good! Of course I was so happy when I realised that they have another drama together hehe 

 

GYZ was at times too cocky and impertinent but I still liked his character development in the end. Also handsome actors often look stupid or cringy when trying to act goofy but Xu Kai managed to pull it off imo. I'm very impressed by Bai Lu and her acting skills as a guy. Her body language matched the boys haha. And her character didn't really fall into clichés of the girl becoming brain dead after the guy finds out her secret and/or she falling in love with him.

I’m still watching and obsessing over AMA too. I can’t move on. I miss our precious KAILU. I can’t wait for their next project. I hope it’ll be just as good as AMA and TL, despite the latter’s ending. lol I still need to rewatch the entire drama in one go. Can’t wait for break to binge watch it.

Wow I found a cute segment guys :lol:

 

MC: 3, 2, ....

Bai Lu: We're just starting like that? No scenes shown?

MC: None, just improvise.

Bai Lu: There's no scenario/hint?

MC: You want GYZ to help you with something at the academy so you try to act cute, okay? 3, 2, 1 Begin!

 

XX: Hey, GYZ

XX: GYZ!

XX: Help me get the rice (sorry can't tell if it's rice or food lol)

GYZ: You don't have hands?

XX: *hides hands* I don't

GYZ: My arms are also broken

*crowd laughs*

XX: *pouts* Are you getting it or not? Are you?

GYZ: Not getting

XX: Not getting it?

GYZ: Not getting

XX: *nods* Then I'm going to ask Shen Jun Shan

GYZ: Let's go! (I think this part meant let's go get it done together - So not to go to SJS)

 

MC: Xu Kai, what do you think?

Xu Kai: She considered Shen Jun Shan as the spare tyre (the back up guy), in the end I'm the true owner.

Bai Lu: *gapes mouth in denial* *gives up*

Can somebody help me move on? I think I'm gonna be stuck on this page for a while:unsure:

 

Q: What was Bai Lu's experience with trimming her hair to immerse into her role?

BL: I've cut my hair for about 2 months now but still haven't gotten used to it.

WYZ: But now we are not used to your long hair.

BL: In real life, I bought a wig.

XK: She wears it wherever she goes.

WYZ: One day she appeared before us with her wig on, we were like "who's this?"

BL: No no, in reality we would go have meals together. I would usually wear it to those places and they would pick on me once they see me. So I told them that I'm just afraid of them forgetting my appearance with long hair. 

 

Plus, I've always dreamed of trying a man's hairstyle for once since I was a child. I still remember the day I had my hair cut, I placed my phone on the side to record the entire process and said "Arsenal Military Academy, fighting!"

 

I wore a hoodie after having my hair trimmed but did not dare take it off even after half an hour and also did not dare to take a look at myself.

 

Note: I noticed how Li Cheng Bin (SJS) was so quiet lol it's kinda cute :lol:

MC: So in real life, does Bai Lu like someone like Gu Yan Zheng or Shen Jun Shan?

BL: *checks XK out*

XK: Gu Yan Zheng *smiles proudly*

MC: Wait, I didn't get to say anything yet

XK: Of course, it has to be Gu Yan Zheng

MC: Okay, okay

XK: I know you guys also like him *crowed cheers*

MC: Bai Lu also likes Gu Yan Zheng?

BL: I am a lively person so I also like people who are a bit mischievous. So chances are we would also be playful together

MC: So you like somebody who is lively and an extrovert right?

BL: Correct

I dont think they have an episode depicting their engagement at all. (In Kdramas they normally have an official engagement party.)

 

We the viewers are to assume that they're engaged as their families are very close and they are childhood friends. During those days (in the early 1900) it is taken for granted that they're engaged with parental blessings.:rolleyes:

@gladys57  You are :kiss_wink:   thank you ...i went back 3-4 and some episodes even 5 times to see if i missed that monumental occasion LOL  Not that i minded ...i got to concentrate more on the rest of the co creative characters of this drama , and i ended up studying Qu Man Ting's character and her relationship with STB .  

I liked the way this drama served us with original characters and beautiful and super creative dialogue  between them , skillfully highlighting the circumstances and the conditions that we needed to be privy to .   

 

I also like when the characters are like small universe, full of their own authenticity and yet totally relatable and even understandable . 

eg. In QMT's case , a child that was conceived in horror , and the only time spent with mother who was not even aware of her and who's passing was the only connection that she had,  and followed by the silent differentiation growing up , no wonder she was a bit lol narcissistic ...who will love her if she does not love herself.  But she was always a valiant little fighter as STB pointed out, and her defence of him and GYZ and even Tao showed me a totally different perspective and by the end i loved her as much as XX and my 5Star best girlfriend . All the females in this drama held their own and equally qualified for the best medals that AMA awards ...because those men without these women would have been insignificant or totally incomplete .

Damn I'm so happy to see that the party is not over yet!  :love:

@Renaro Kopique bless your soul! Almost everything gets translated in english for kdramas but I only find vietnamese subs for AMA. So I'm really grateful that you are translating some cute segments because my curiosity would've killed me otherwise. Please show us more!!! :wub:

 

How big is the chance of Bai Lu and Xu Kai working on another project together again? What do you think? Is there hope?

If you can find something, I’ll try to translate it but yea I’ll try to look around as well. Kinda glad I understand viet but only like 70% of it lol.

 

Seems like yuzheng will likely pair them back together since he loves doing what the public hates :lol: the more ppl hates this OTP the more he does it 

 

Have you seen the AMA crack vids? They’re hilarious :P there are 3 parts to it

In ep 20, GYZ's "fiance" was engaged from young to a family friend's son before. So it's quite common among the Chinese then (from whatever background) to have their children engaged from young.:lol:

 

Talking about the sassy females in our gem of a drama, we mustn't forget YU JIE, Sg Guo's wife, who has been AWESOME right from the beginning.:wub:
