[Ebook] [Spoilers in English] [Drama with English subs] [Nữ tướng: Lục Trinh truyền kỳ]
Actually this is a screenplay being adapted into 2 books, not the usual way round. Yet it still qualifies to be called a book as a physical book has been published. As to whether the book will be the same as the drama, I don’t know so anyone who can enlighten me will be much appreciated.
Are any of you watching this now:)? Jessy & I are busy chasing this drama so we’ll probably don’t have time for SSB or our blog:P Maybe we’ll spam here with fangirling comments on the drama, lol. So far, we are enjoying it immensely bcos the OTP is just so awesome, with perfect chemistry rendering us speechless & our eyes glue to the screen, haha…..
If you want more info, go to jolecole’s station as she is a superfan with heaps of info, pictures, trailers etc.
I’m watching the drama and it’s so addicting. I adore Zhao Li Ying’s spunky character and Chen Xiao’s Gao Zhan is so handsome. I’m all caught up (EP 12) and wanting more!
Yayaya, so sweet & cute, drooling, lol. I am only at ep 5 bcos I use my lunch time to watch an epi a day as I don’t have bandwidth to watch at home, boo hoo hoo….Oh, I just learned how to download to my usb drive so I can watch at home, yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Here is the full version of the end theme song sang by our beloved pair:)
I LOVE THIS SHOW. I know this is sad, but i love the scenes where they fight because their interactions are that of equals.
Hey, hey, getting a bit bored with all those scheming & jealous women. Gao Zhan is great but too many girls after him. Should have the story concentrate on one or 2 only & focus more on the OTP. I don’t like to watch Shen Bi & all those crazy girls, lol. Also, will like to watch Lu Zhen going through more tests and challenges to get promoted like the pottery part is good.
Only the juicy bits:P
I think Chen Xiao’s going to disappear and die for a couple of episodes… and Shen Jia Min’s older brother’s going to appear to be the true 2nd lead and comfort Lu Zhen in her grief…. just when she decides to reciprocate, lo! Gao Zhan comes back!
YMM said the ending of the drama will be different from the book. He said, he’ll not abuse us, wahaha…thank you YMM:P
I take back what I wrote !!!! Instead I wanna throw rotten eggs at him. When he said that I was wary bcos I can’t think how he can give us a happy ending but the naive me trusted him. It turns out the ending is the same as the book! Sob sob, such a lonely ending. He lied to us just so we’ll tune in:( Or is he going to film an alternate ending to be broadcasted next yr when the sequel will be released? A lesson well learned, never to trust anything YMM said ! You better redeem yourself in the so-called sequel with a happy ending or else I am not watching the final of your ‘Legend’ trilogy ! Hey, did YMM copy the ending from Hua Xu Yin bcos they are too similar, just gender reversal?
This drama is sooo addicting.
Does anyone know for the audiobooks some of them says you have to pay…is there a way around those??
U can go to actually go to http://www.ysts8.com/
^_^ I don’t want the ppl at cxt to know who I am. haha
I thought for a second here that this was a book adapted into a drama but no it’s the other way around??? I think the scriptwriters need a brownie, they really did a good job with this drama also the cast was really good too. If it were YMM alone, it probably wouldn’t have turned out this nicely lol. If i’m not wrong Consort Xiao is the annoying shimei of Ling Hu Chong inside YMM’s Smiling Proud Wanderer? I’m towards the end of the drama now and she is turning out one of my favorite girl characters for just turning around and accepting her husband, giving up on her love for Gao Zhan and being a good wife and sister-in-law. Really enjoy Gao Zhan and Lu Zhen’s fights too!!! I swear it’s kind of thrilling.
I love this OTP. Cuteness Overload. I watched this drama without sub only in 3 days.. skip all the part scheming parts.
I’m current watching this drama for second time. God! I must say that I’m absolutely in love with it. I adore the main couple Gao Zhan-Lu Zhen. Didn’t know it was adapted from novel. I think I’m going to read it.
No, no, the screenplay is being published as a novel, just like King Lan Ling which is a new trend. However according to someone who has read it the novel, it is more detailed especially on the supporting male parts and is a bit different from the novel.
Viki has the English subs out pretty quickly so you could have watched it with subs. Anyway you can watch again with subs:P I cannot watching something without subbing or dubbing unless I know the language:)
It reminds me of Rose Martial World which was also produced by Yu Zheng. The novel was published after the series.
Chen Xiao and Zhao Liying’s amazing chemistry was the only thing keeping me going with this series. It started off alright, then just got worse as it went on. I’ve never seen such a naive and rather dumb person be able to rise to the rank of prime minister. Bah.
