Just going back to watch this section made me realise how YT really doesn't understand JC at all and how obsessed she was with JC and achieving his heart+favour she became quite ruthless in how she treated everyone else. I kinda wish they made her the main villain instead of JX LOL 

 

Also watching from the beginning I could see JC might have had a soft spot for her in a brother-sister kinda way. But she was definitely in love with him. 

That's how I feel about YT as well.  Her character development is so much more better than JX and it would have elevate this series so much if they made her the main villain.  I really like Hai Ling portrayal of the character, ruthlessness, conniving, amoral with a hint of sweetness. She may be my 3rd favorite character apart from the leads.  I like everyone else just okay. 

I'm rewatch this series with YT in mind as the main villain and skipped all of JX and Bao Qing princess parts.  Gosh I hate the 2 of them with a passion.   :lol: I hate how the actor over dramatic/ theatrically acting and Bao Qing is just a terrible character so kudos to the actress for making me hates her character.

thank you so much! :D :heart: nice insights about her and L&D

happy to know she will be doing a modern drama soon! :D 

She just finished a movie with Andy Lau and Sean Lau recently too, saw an interview of it. Not sure what modern drama is she doing.

Y’all have to rewatch episode 2 lol. Every time JC saw Shi San his facial expression is hilarious. At the beginning I feel bad for him because he just woke up from a bloody battle. Then saw a big change in subordinate...mind exploded internally.

Like honestly I think they short-changed her character. We should have had a final showdown between YT and our girl LX (test them new God powers). Ya! she's really good as an actress, she really made me hate her and she did such a good job with the role as well. 

 

I think Bao Qing's acting was pretty good too!! I think Ethan Li (the guy that plays JX) was just overly dramatising at times? You can see that from the way he talks about his role in the BTS he's quite serious or like quite a method actor? I think his costume look wasn't great :'( and the writing for his character was a bit, flat? Like I see how they thought it would work but his motivations/ character arc seemed so muddled that I just felt towards the end them forcing his love for LM as the main driving factor for his demonic possession was like -face palm- also his speech at the end about demons being in LX and JC's hearts was...  -face palm-

Hahaha yes it must so disorienting with both Shi San and this chirpy silly bird who has no sense of rules or propriety

 

Also, yesterday I watched some parts of ep 2 - there's a bit where LX tries to enter into JC's bed chamber and is stopped by the kunlun sword - she doesn't back away which surprises JC and he asks, "why didn't you back off? aren't you afraid of it?" And she replies, "why should I hide when I did nothing wrong?" I think she makes an impression there - silly little lovely bird :joy:

Yeah, I think that surprised him. Also in episode 3 when JC visit peach blossom forest, we get to see Ling Xi toy sword is the same one as in the last episode.

I was about to point this - she gets that toy sword holder to Congji Abyss for her daughter :D

And I love that sequence when he sees her past before his eyes - everything about him! reading books about him, painting his portrait lol 

it must have moved him a little (a LOT) :D 

 

some screenshots I really like:

when I think he realises she's a woman:

when Xiao Bai is naughty - JC looks so cute here! :

Screenshot-at-Aug-22-22-42-02.png

 

And I think he purposefully let Xiao Bai do mischief and make things worse for LX (she's running around the dog in this scene) - here's him having fun at her expense:

Lol I feel like he’s always a gentleman, even when she took off her outer gown to jump into the lake he turn around, even he was curious to know what she’s planning. I love those screenshots! You’re right, and I think he’s enjoying Xiao Bai mischief too. 

Btw I finally know who brought Xiao Bai to the palace. Turn out it was the same blue bird that belong to Yu Li.

I guess they did short-changed YT character, but at the same time it seems like they plan for JX to be bad guy since the beginning. 

 

I think Ethan Li didn’t understand the character so he couldn’t bring out whatever the scriptwriter had in mind.  They practically layout all of the scenes for his character as ambiguous, sympathetic and walking the fine line of good and evil.  They even said it out loud how he teeters between good and evil and he should choose a side.

 

I was okay with his character for the most parts, it was only until the end with that speech that I face palm and downright hate his character.  I don’t see or feel the supposed “love” he has for Ah Mo during their time together, it was through side character that I get that info.  The actor needs to act that out, not some side character to point it out. 

 

JC character is very flat in the beginning as well, all he did was sitting, reading, meditate or drinking tea, and since I wasn’t paying attention to Chang Chen and his facial acting, I was surprised by his actions in the later episodes.  Every time I rewatch the earlier episodes, I found more detail that I missed .  At first, I thought it was in episode 10 that he really shows his love for her but I was so wrong, it was much much earlier than that.

Saw this on douban, someone did some detective work and point out the significance of the unripe fruit.

 

There was a scene where the maid gave LX the unripe fruit, JX explained that it’s not the type that LX will like since it’s unripe and sour.  Then in the later scenes, the fruits are on LX’s table so people are saying that she’s pregnant at that time and the fruits appear again with the family picture.

hahaha yes - LX mentions it to JC when he finds out about the dog - it was originally intended to be food for some sacred beasts 

 

JC was only a gentleman till arc 1 - after that he turned into a lovely rogue :D :D

 

Spoiler

this is way ahead ep 19 he's warmed up to LX by this point - even kisses her on the forehead and now he's saying something that he has to go and he'll be back soon - he goes forward and grabs her hand to stress this - his way of indicating yes-we-are-a-couple-now and he turns and has this ever so slight smug face which is this:

but our silly bird is way ahead of him and kisses him on the cheek :D:D

when is this scene? I usually skip JX's scenes :joy: (even if LX is there lol) - @blueclueblue found it on the page - didn't scroll down earlier lol

Ni Ni points out in her interview that Chang Chen doesn't move much but can convey a lot with his expressions - it becomes evident when you rewatch the episodes - I really enjoy rewatching them - there are so many details that pop out :D @Winterfairy has a good eye in this too :D 

 

I skipped a lot of YT's scenes too and I can't really comment without watching the scenes with subs - so I have a neutral take on this who's-supposed-to-be-the-bad-guy debate :D

Funniest part in ep3 when he is investigating her past, is when he sees that picture of him that she painted, which shows him as an old man! hahahahahahahahahahah his face! That "uncle" thing is hunting him from the start!

 

 

:joy:

 

@blueclueblue During the first episodes, i think he was purposely meant to be flat as character and behavior. He was just woken up from a coma-kind of- he was adjusting, he was gaining his energy back, it would be strange if he was behaving normally.

After all, as a person, he was a dull person (as he himself admitted when talking with his bro later).

I think that in this part, they developed his reactions pretty well. A dull, severe, introverted person, just comes back from hibernation,

and gradually is awakening by all means, his senses, his feelings, and and new feelings begin to rise inside him, as compassion, love, desire etc. So when in mortal realm and afterwards, he becomes a man that experiences all kinds of emotions, a more complete person than before.

 

Spoiler

(some scenes are left unexplained-though i havent watched everything in detail till now that im watching with subs: heavenly emperor knew about JC's plan to send LX in mortal realm and then come back demon-spirit-clean? cause at some point, i think in ep 22, heavenly emperor enters JC's room but the scene is cut and continues with LX's trial etc)

to be fair - he is old! he just doesn't look old or in his case feel old LOL - and true although he's been around for so long - he never experiences a lot of things until LX comes into his life (like eating street food lol) - she brings life into him - no wonder he gets attached to her so quickly lol

Episode 52.  When Wu Wan visit her.

 

@Winterfairy really has good eyes.  It almost feel like we're doing treasure hunt trying to find detail that we missed.  

 

There's a little bias on my part for  Hai Ling so I watched all of her scenes and I really enjoy her take on the character.  I really do not like Ethan Li's acting.

I've to rewatch this.  That's so funny.  :joy:

I understand about his character being flat in the beginning. It was more or less about acting ability to bring out the character.  Hence why I rewatch scenes that people pointed out.

The Heavenly emperor told JC about the cauldron and gave him permission for it.
