Bongsd, hey I rushed this synopsis just for you, lol. Don’t confuse this with the kdrama with the same name as they are pole apart. This will be your darling Chen Xiao’s next drama where filming will start in March. The drama is based on a super long novel so you probably will get to see him in more than 50 episodes of pure drama in modern clothings. Most ppl want to see him partner with Zhao Li Ying again but you get Zhou Dong Yu instead. Come on, we can’t always have the same pairing.
This novel is pretty old and written by a Taiwanese, I think published in 2005 or before. But it is very popular and with good reviews until I can even find a translated Thai copy. Thus, I think there should be a Viet translation which you can read if you can’t wait for the drama. But there are 6 books, so you’ve been warned:P Don’t worry, there are 2 endings, one tragic & one happy so make sure you read the right ending, lol. I hope the drama will have 2 endings for us to choose or pick the happy ending. If the drama has a sad ending, spoiler spoiler, your dear will kick the bucket:(
THANK YOUUUU !
I will check it properly later. 鄭媛 : zhèng yuàn ? Because I can only find Glass Slipper by Fei Wo Si Cun. o_O
I don’t care about Zhou Dong Yu. Apparently, she doesn’t have a good relationship with CX. hahaha I’m so bad… but she’s really cute, so it’s ok.
Yes, Zheng Yuan, not FWSC !!!!
If you cannot find the Viet version, you can try the Thai version, lol.
I can do a summary for you but it’ll spoil the drama for you so I am not going to do it, lol.
Ooh so dramatic. Is Tan Zhi Zhen actually Xin Tong?
Haha, you read so many Taiwanese novels b4, you should know their style:P Yup, same person. Actually the story is rather typical and the twists are not that believable but the comments said it is written in a touching way so you need a hanky. I am not gonna read this bcos I gonna watch the drama, lol.
Have you read this Taiwanese author’s novels b4?
Hahahaha! Oh if it’s the same person, then I may enjoy it. Except it’s six books! Gosh.
I went to google her books and nope don’t think I’ve read her before. But, one of her novels – called “Maid/Servant” looks good, so I might put that on my to read list. Haha.
Hi Peanuts and gang,
I want to start reading Chinese romance books but I am just a beginner. Could you recommend me a few simple books to start with? I really like all your postings especially the spoilers and avidly read all the comments on all your books postings.
Thank you! 🙂
Hello, thank you for your support. I’ve never heard of romance novel for beginner. Maybe you can try comic (manhua) books. For beginner, you definitely must stay away from ancient & online game novels. Just try any modern novels you like the synopsis. Use google translate to help you along or find a book with translation. Can you understand Mandarin at all? If yes, you can give the audio book a try.
Thanks for yr prompt suggestions. What is online game novels? Further are there any C novels with han yu pin yin on top n d Chinese characters below tat would be helpful. Reading the book translation wont help me improve more… I do understand Mandarin and know how to read some but only at beginners level. I want to start reading some simple modern romance instead of liatening to improve more tho I love ancient C stories but the vocab even in C dramas floored me 🙂
I mean d vocab in ancient C dramas especially when it comes to war, poem recitals, proverbs etc…..
Hmmm chinese books with pinyin, I think you might have to check with the physical bookstores! Peanuts translates many modern c novels actually, it may be helpful to read those books she translates in chinese, and then you can check her translations if you have doubts!
Online game novel is novel with playing internet game as the setting eg. the female & male leads met & interacted with each other online.
You can copy & paste the Chinese sentences into google translate. It’ll read to you, give you no good English translation but still understandable & there is also pin yin below. If your first language is not English, you can even get google to translate the Chinese to other languages. Go & explore Chinese novels with google translate.
Bongsd is shy so I am helping her to post this super short trailer on her Xiao Xiao, lol. You’ve to wait until 2015 to watch this so maybe my Sunshine can even beat you, haha….
