I read that too.  I also read somewhere (might have been a Ni Ni interview) that they talked before a scene but neither knew exactly how the other person was going to act.  They just reacted naturally to each other.  They are so good!  That’s why we believe in their love and are all so hopelessly addicted!

 

That "natural reactions"  thing pointed at us and killed us eventually!

 

:joy:

 

(some actors -and some directors- prefer to not rehearsal many times the intimate scenes, aside from the main choreography which is standard and ordered by the director. They prefer as much spontaneous feeling as it can, so to not lose that magic moment of first time and sparkle.  Let's say that they use their basic primitive instinct, that we all have, so to approach the scene with much sense of reality. That's why most of actors say that erotic-intimate scenes are the easiest for them, cause, among feelings, sexual attraction is the easiest to feel for another person)

@Winterfairy I am not discrediting PCCD I am a loyal member to that group, I only replied to what @zijinini and @Tiff comments about pccd, and I have screenshot how Tiff rant about pccd, and if you're a member from that group you can read their post how they asked ungrateful members to leave the group which included the person I mentioned

I read that the red tree in JC’s Fuyun Hall is the only red tree that shows up in the heaven palace and may symbolize JC’s inner self and inner emotions.  It is in stark contrast to the neutral colors of Fuyun Hall.  The rest of heaven palace is basically white.  The tree is hidden in the back of Fuyun Hall, and can only been seem from certain angles.  I’ll have to pay attention to the tree when I rewatch episodes.

That’s true that the read tree. It’s stand out. But how does it symbolize his inner self? This is an interesting finding, thanks for sharing!

I found this article talking about the hidden meaning of the red tree. If anyone here can translate this article that would be good.

Ladies, talking about lost in translation.  AvenueX on YouTube has a new video related to L&D.  Really helps with understanding of the show.

Qing Yao, the actress is pretty. I like her acting. Also. her mortal husband guy actor is cute too :)!! Hope Jessica Zhang will get her own main role in the future with her mortal husband, because they matched so well. Leo Li is cute as Yun Feng, but he looks better in modern clothing. I don't like Jing Xiu with Ah Mo, they have no chemistry, if the attempt is to make him like second lead. Shi Sha is funny, the actress is tall!! Love the side  couples :).

I don’t know why viki tortures us by slowly uploading new episodes. I hate it because patience is not one of my many virtues. There are other sites that show more subbed episodes but video quality are mediocre and this drama has beautiful cinematography aside from the great acting so it’s best to watch in HD.

Long time lurker, first time poster here!

 

The article basically says the same thing that @fivebowls have mentioned before. Anytime JC feels deeply about something - whether he misses LX or conflict, the red tree will show up in the scene. It’s an indication of his emotions. The more obvious the red tree, the stronger his emotions

 

the first half of the article also says (from my limited understanding) that the tree is hidden all the way in the back but still somewhat visible - very much like JC. He seems icy but that’s just the exterior - if you delve deeper, he’s actually passionate and emotional. (So much for a stone heart lol)

 

a lot of other characters also also uses the red tree when they are feeling strongly about things - when LX sat outside the pavilion for 16 days, when YF stone statue broke.

 

this is truly a marvelous drama - the more you watch the more you notice. It certainly rewards the viewer who rewatches it

@fivebowls has recommended this video of AvenueX. I found it very infomative and posted it here directly in case someone miss it.

 

 

AvenueX explains that “mo jiang” is 13’s humble reference to herself in front of her superior based on her rank/title.  JC refers to himself as “本尊“(“ben zun”), meaning “this zun,” as in “zun” from “shen zun,” in front of all ranked lower than him (pretty much everyone except for the heavenly emperor and his teacher).  In the beginning, he uses the more casual “I” only with Yun Feng.  Later, I believe starting from episode 17 or so, he starts to use “I” with LX.  This reflects the change in how JC views their relationship.  

 

JC’s original form is based on ying long like she says.  It’s mentioned in the CGI special about the design of the various creatures in the show.

Yeah, the English speakers would miss the subtleties of how his pronouns change is indicative of how he feels about a person. I mean JC is normally polite but also very haughty. Reminds me of those old time European aristocrats. If you richard simmons him off, he wouldn't hesitate to cut you and pull rank on you. Like with Old Lady Yuan, when he first saw her again at the banquet, he walked over to greet her politely, after her conduct at the banquet, he was all "Ben zun" with her. Same with the queen of the West, he behaved with perfect conducts, but after she invaded his place and hurt Lingxi, he dropped his sword on her and pulled the "Ben zun" again, which is basically a royal "we" on her. And then after the interrogation of Lingxi, he just snubbed her, walked straight pass her without even a glance. I was so gleeful.

Speaking of old time aristocrats, can you imagine an AU fanfiction where he is a Royal Duke, or maybe a Russian Prince and she is just a simple country maid, the daughter of a minor gentry or something, and they fall in love? 

Him looking like this

And her looking like this

https://images.app.goo.gl/eZqLxSyTszDp4rSm8

And there would be horse drawn sled  in the snow, a la War and Peace. And him holding her face in his beautiful hands, tenderly kissing her? Omg * fan self* they are driving me crazy with their chemistry and I'm not ready for the show to end. I want more.... I just can't stop my mind from creating these crazy scenarios lol

:lol: hahah.

@fivebowls thank you for the explanation, just want to ask you. That “ben” is it the same as “ben” in “ben wang” where the duke or princes call them selfs? I remember this from other palace drama.

 

@Positively prickly cactusLove what you say about him pulling rank card. Now when I rewatch I have to pay attention to what they’re saying. Omg you’re about to start a fanfic frenzy going with those pictures lol.

 

With this drama every time you rewatch it you watch something. Like someone here mention treasure hunt lol.
