[Mainland Chinese Drama 2019] Love and Destiny 三生三世宸汐缘

Recommended Posts

Fav part is all the OTP scenes of course, but i prefer the mortal realm and the rest scenes after that. But the part when JC turn to a dragon forcing to combine LX’s soul was very touching.

I ll answer you a bit more cynical this time, which is closer to what i think:

the toy-trail thing was to make the pill sweet for us, to stimulate our emotions superficially so to accept that rushed one minute reunion.

They took a drama and ended it like a melo-drama which is obviously a devaluation of the whole thing.

Of course seems logical to ask the kid who she is so to get close to her and tell her who he is. You cant just appear in front of a child -a toddler, and say "hi im your father" (though they could also dare do that too for their job to be done)

 

Yes, im still furious

 

One moment with 3 silent heads as a reunion.

For cryin' out loud

 

:rage:

 

I think Ye Hua was lovesick

JC loves in another level. As we watched, LX doubted him (not cause he had to kill her 2 times)

but clearly cause of a woman's insecurities towards a man.

 

JC is stable as a rock. He doesnt allow himself to have insecurities, and the only time we saw him being competitive it was in the mortal realm with JX and just to get him out of his way, not from insecurity but cause he found him annoying, like an insect on his butter :joy:

He is arrogant. Dont you see how he pays back LX for every single "insult" and bitter word she said to him?

He is a steady weapon, an ultimate force. King of b@stards!

:joy:

 

(and i soooooooo want him)

:heart:

I really love your assessment of JC. He does have a way with words :joy:

I really love all of the fan’s comments on Chang Chen’s weibo posts asking him to “下凡” (come to mortal realms figure of speech) and collaborate with Ni Ni for 1 movie, and 2 more tv series.  While most of the casts posted their good bye in weibo, only Chang Chen has more than 10K comments and going to hit 20K soon. 

From the word of director Chen Kaige in an interview a while back, “Chang Chen hasn’t found the one role that define him yet and I hope that it’s with my movie that do it”.  I think with Love and Destiny, Jiu Chen may be the one role that defines him now.  

 

Since there’s no other series that I like right now, I’m going to take my sweet time watching this series again.  I feel like I missed out a lot of detail watching the daily episodes.

If finally that happens i will be jumping around laughing like a fool for sure!

How i wish they will co act together again! I like watching actors collaborating in many projects, as i ve seen that familiarity and friendship between them outside work, works really good in the projects!

that's the beauty with great acting - with each rewatching you find out something new - also the world building and character building in this drama is really good - so there's a lot of minor details to absorb 

 

back to more OTP moments - while I love JC in the 2nd arc because of his unrestrained and blatant courtship - I prefer spirited LX over mature Amo - so I really enjoyed the third arc after LX was back to her old self - the drunk scene and their bickerings and I also love how she unilaterally marries him lol that was very moving - and JC telling her in the end that as long as he is alive - he will find a way to be back to her side :')

Unfortunately, google translate is very vague and inaccurate!

 

This articles more or less talks about similar info as the previous article and video that I translated. 

So I only translate some new info

The producer wrote Chang Chen a very long letter to convince him to accept the role of Jiu Chen. 

Ni Ni asks the writers to not make her character overly sweet as LX.

In the series, Jiu Chen sometime touch LX ear, it’s not intentional done, it just happen.  (There’s a poll on weibo about favorite gesture in the series.)

When Ni Ni and Chang Chen have a scene together, they usually discuss the dialog and the position they should be.  No emphasis on what type of reaction she should have when she say a certain line.  So a lot of the scenes are just natural reaction.  (Now I know why she seems surprise in some of the scenes, but she recovered really well afterward).

thank you! thank God for that long letter by that producer lol and LX was not sweet - she's kind/considerate and good-hearted but petty as well :D 

 

now, I'm curious what all gestures were there in that poll :D 

 

and the natural reaction sure adds a lot of depth to the acting :D

first of all: thank you everyone her for posting pics, videos and translations.may the high gods bless you ;)

 

i havent watched the ending yet, but am a bit sad to hear there will notbe an abundance of cuddling scenes.

didnt someone here think about writing some fanfiction about chang chen and nini? well, i had an idea...

actually the script had a fabulous ending planned with lots of affection and kissing, however during the filming nini is having more and more a hard time when she has scenes with cc... loses her professionalism... blushes whenever the have long eyecontact or stand close to each other, although theres 20 people fussing around them on set, she doesnt see or hear any of them when  lose to cc... obviously, this is very confusing and impractical for nini. cc is married after all.

so she is approaching her breaking point anyways and then realizes that soon they will be shooting the very long, very steamy, basically unheard of sexyness in a cdrama ending scenes and she panics and knows she must avoid that no matter what, to save her heart and dignity. she comes up witb some bs reason, maybe her reputation and portfolio as an actress and demands from the director to change the script. of course that doesnt go down well, but nini makes it very clear she will not back off. either change the script or she leaves she set, no matter that the production is almost finished and no matter the backlash from backing out of her contract. the script is changed. cc doesnt know any of this.

filming ends and theres a celebration, nini wanders off, wanting to be alone, sad its ending but looking forward to get away and put her heart back together. cc finds her. he jokes about feeling he missed out big time that the script was changed, he was sure it would have been a legendary piece of naughty moviehistory... he guesses the production team got scared of the censorship board and thats why they changed it. knowing nini will leave tomorrow morning anyways and not being able to bear anymore to deceive the man she lost her heart to, she decides to come clean with him. she faces him, really looks at him, where before she was always avoiding eye contact, takes his right hand, holding it between hers and speaks. that she demanded the script to be changed. that she wouldnt have been able to ACT that scene, only BE in that scene, the real her. and she couldnt stand that, knowing he would be acting. still, she knows she would obsess over maybe cc didnt act, maybe he likes me a little. having this on camera, for the world to see, everyone enjoying what brings her pain inside and she herself compulsivly watching and rewatching herself and him in passion. it would have been her doom, so she couldnt allow it to happen. her hands still holding his, her thumb rubs where he wears his wedding ring when not filming, then slowly lifts his hand and presses a soft kiss on that spot. letting go of the hand she says, i have great respect for you, i hope i never caused you trouble with my lack of professionalism. i learned a lot when working with you. thank you. 

and she walks away...

That touching of his on her ear, was quite inspiring! Especially cause it wasn't part of the scene's choreography but they invented it.

It fits perfectly with the fact that behind her right ear there's her mark from the Demon Lord

then she gives away her ability to hear

and finally she 's reincarnated deaf. 

To my interpretation, his move to that spot shows a connection of his fate to hers since she was a baby when she got marked,

and the rest of the facts i mentioned above.

Great spontaneous inspiration of the leads!

Why do I feel like that this is almost real and not fanfic.  Please confirm because my heart can't take it if this this real.

"natural reaction"

 

its time for our fanfic writer @Alice_in_a_rabbithole to show up

:lol:

 

Chang Chen has never studied acting in a drama school. He studied hard next to the great directors that  "adopted" him since the beginning.

He usually performs using the Stanislavski 's acting techniques (recalling an experience, a memory, living the role as he is already the hero etc)

and using a lot lot lot of improvisation. Improvisation in acting is always risky. It needs great experience and a director that can leave space to the actor create the scene.

I think he did a great job while improvising many things in L&D, especially when Ni Ni can follow her partner like a mate in tango.

(the only weird thing he did in the drama, was at the bed scene, when she says: "lets get married".

He gives her a glance of horror which is kind of creepy

:lol:

I like the spunkiness of Ah Mo; he was so taken back when she slaps her hand on the table and not let him eat the bun :joy:.  The unrestrained and blatant courtship really elevates the emotional level to me.  And the uncertain of whether he’ll see her once she comes back.  I didn’t like how she doubts his loves at the end but I guess it's for the 3rd arc so whatever. 

In one of the scene JC sitting around chit chat with everyone, Kai Yang was giving JC a hard time for going to Shi Ling Tribe too much that Tian Jun put an order in place.  He made the excuse that he was investigating the demon door.  Si Ming asks for confirmation that JC didn’t go see LX when he visit Shi Ling tribe. Then Shi San came in and ask if he wants to drink the tea that LX made for him when they last visit her.  :joy:  The people around him knows him too well at this point.

lmao - you sure do have a way of putting together words (that batman comment previously and many others)

I didn't understand that reaction of his as well- LOL - what was he trying to say - the God of War's emotions are inscrutable sometimes :joy:

:joy: true - it must be such fun for them to be able to actually poke fun at the God of War 

 

and yes - I really like that scene when she thumps the table - but her spunkiness is few and far in between - she is sweet and shy for the most part - and also the whole trial thing doesn't help but they do have great OTP moments in the 2nd arc

Chang Chen looks a bit untrained many times (in other films too). The directors let him be that way and i have a personal explanation of why that happens: 

as a man, as a male figure, though his looks are not these of the typical macho fit, muscled man, he has a natural primitive sexual magnetism. Like an animal aura when it comes to the climax: male figure-sexual expression

(for example, Chen Kun has a more "gay" aura, he seems edgy and a bit hysterical, he looks somewhere in the middle when acting a male role.There are some things that we are born with)

 

That thing is being shown in a weird way sometimes. But that glance at her in that scene was really creepy :lol:

 

Personally i love dorky expressions of all actors. Something like that:

yup - this guy doesn't need any words for seducing :joy: totally agree with you - that's why he literally devoured Ni Ni in that Savage movie kiss LOL and in the bed scene when he rolls up on her - it was freaking hot like now the action is getting real and how he gently touches her face with his hand and plunges in for the claim - God - such a lovely beast. And kudos to Ni Ni for matching that :D 

 

Agree about Chen Kun as well - he has that Joker maniacal vibe too in TROP
