• Detective Investigation Files part 5, please!!!
  • love love LOVE Korea's Running Man!!!! saw a few eps of the Chinese version Running Brothers, don't care for it, not funny
  • I'm going to pretend that badly photoshopped, fake looking diamond ring is for me. Yes, I'll marry you, Wallace, lol.
  • @hetieshou In my opinion, this drama is not just good but a great adaptation because the plot and cast fit perfectly. The author of the novel Fresh Guo Guo also wrote the script for the drama. Sure the drama doesn't match the novel exactly, but I feel the important events of the novel are still in the drama so can't complain. And sometimes, it's not necessarily "changes" but the events in the novel are just rearranged in a different order in the drama. I've known Wallace for a long time but never liked him for some reason. I love Xian Jian 3 but only because of Hu Ge and Yang Mi, who I thought made an adorable and funny bickering couple. I know lots of people like Wallace and Tang Yan's story, but I thought their love story was boring. I've heard and seen bits and pieces of Wallace in various dramas over the years. For example, the drama with Michelle Ye, the infamous Swordsman with YSS and Joe Chen, Durian City with Ruby lol and that masked drama with LSS that a lot of people say is good but I dropped after a few eps. I don't know why, but for some reason I didn't like Wallace until TJOF. I love the novel and to be honest, I was disappointed at first when I learned that Wallace would be BZH. Then pics of Wallace as BZH were released and OMG!!! there's one pic where Wallace held a sword behind his back looking just all shades of wonderful, lol. I felt it was as if BZH had stepped out of the pages of the novel. That's the pic that made me fall in love with Wallace, lol.
  • @funnlim Can have my heart whenever he wants!!! He should be very thin in Close Your Eyes because supposedly his character has just escaped from a serial killer. I've a weakness for men in white/black shirts and suits, and I think that's what Wallace will mostly wear in the drama. Not sure if concentration is possible if he waltzes back and forth across the TV screen in my favorite men's wear!!!
  • @funnlim Not the power of pics but more like the power of Wallace's face, lol. I saw Durian City but didn't pay attention to Wallace. Was too busy hating the plot.
  • This drama is special to me. Since I love the novel, I was very excited to see an adaptation. Thankfully, the stars aligned in the sky for this drama because it's a good adaptation with a wonderful cast!!! Also, it's because of this drama that I fell in love with Wallace Huo. Have known about him for years but never liked his looks or acting. Then one day last year, I happened to see a pic of Wallace as BZH in white lholding a sword behind him (the pic you posted up top, Funn) and BAM!!!! I fell head over heels in love. My world was changed in that second just because of that beautiful pic or rather, beautiful face?? From that moment on, you'll always have my heart, Wallace Huo, whether you want it or not!! lol
  • @jjwong HQG is the reincarnation of the last god. So basically in this lifetime, she's human who managed to cultivate to the lower level of immortality. The reason why it's important that she's the reincarnation of the last god is because although she no longer has the power of a god, her body and blood are that of a god so later on, her body will be able to tolerate the great power of the Demon God when it’s transferred into her body. [SPOILER] The Demon God is actually not the big deal, it’s the power of the Demon God which can be transferred to anyone. The power is so great that not many people can tolerate it in their body, I think only the most powerful people like BZH or SQM can tolerate it. At this point, HQG is no longer a god after her reincarnation. She’s just a human who managed to cultivate to the lower level of immortality. Technically, HQG’s body wouldn’t be able to tolerate this great power when it’s transferred into her body. The only reason she can is because her body is that of a god, that’s why. At least, that’s my understanding.
  • @funnlim I don't believe HQG knows right from wrong in the beginning. It's true she's a good person, but don't confuse this with her knowing what's right and what's wrong. HQG's problem is that she's never had any proper guidance, someone to explain to her what's right and what's wrong and show her the right path in life. This is why BZH is important to HQG because no one is more perfect to teach her than BZh, whose life is based on doing the right things. In the beginning, HQG doesn't know what's right and what's wrong. For example, remember when DFYQ taught her to fight using reverse techniques so she would confuse people and have a better chance of winning? HQG did this until BZH told her that's not the right way to fight because she can injure herself and others. That's when she stopped. Another example is when she first became his disciple and BZH took her out onto the Lou Feng boulder. He told her to look down and tell him what she could see. At that point, she could only see people, scenery and objects. BZH told her to look more carefully because she needs to see the world with her heart, not with her eyes. Her heart will always guide her to do the right things while her eyes can sometimes deceive her. This is why it's important that HQG can use her heart to analyze the world and not just look at the world briefly and carelessly with her eyes. In the novel, there's another moment where BZH and HQG stand on the Lou Feng boulder. She can't understand the difference between the good sects and bad sects. This is because she's friends with SQM and SQM is good to her so she can't understand why the the immortal realm and humans think SQM is bad and say he does bad things. So HQG asks BZH what does it mean to do the right things? She wants to do the right things but she doesn't really know what's right and what's wrong since everyone around her says SQM is bad yet she thinks SQM is good. And I really love BZH's answer because he tells her to decide for herself. As long as she can live with her decisions, then that means what she does is right. Not sure if the drama will include this part or not. Concentrate on all the moments when BZH and HQG are together alone. Everything he does and says, he's protecting her, always patiently explaining to her what's right and what's wrong. Just like the promise he made when he accepted her as disciple, if she does something wrong, he knows it's not her fault because she's a good person who unfortunately, hasn't had anyone to guide and teach her properly. The fault lies with him, that he hasn't taught her well enough.
  • @funnlim You're right. In the end, HQG would rather destroy herself rather than a world that had only given her pain and rejection. This is the reason why I love the story so much because the plot is based on the premise that good people will always remain good no matter what. This is what I believe to be true in real life. BZH is probably the most controversial character in the story because he loves HQG the most but is also the person who hurts her the most. A lot of people who've read the novel don't like BZH. However, the novel is from HQG's perspective so we only get to see BZH through her eyes and what he's done. Fortunately, Fresh Guo Guo also wrote 2 epilogues to the novel and these are from BZH's perspective. Personally, I've always liked BZH just from reading the novel, but the epilogues are excellent because we get to see his thoughts and feelings. More importantly, we understand his actions and we see how much he sacrifices for HQG and how often, yet he never says anything. I know there are plenty of people rooting for HQG with DFYQ or SQM and not with BZH. Fresh Guo Guo said that the drama also includes the epilogues so I hope people can understand BZH more. Personally, I feel that the only people who ever love HQG unconditionally are her father, Tang Bao and BZH. Everyone else may love her and even sacrifice for her like DFYQ or SQM, but they all have their own agenda. The only person who should not love HQG and should even kill her is BZH, yet he's always done everything he could to try to teach her right from wrong so she can have a better life. This is the reason why I believe they belong together. Remember the part where BZH accepts HQG as his disciple? That's my favorite part in the story and the reason why I support BZH with HQG. At that moment, she's abandoned by everyone. She needs someone to care for her and a home to live in. She wants to belong somewhere!!! The only person who reached out at the critical moment when she needed a savior the most is BZH. Some people can't understand why HQG can't love DFYQ or SQM or anyone else even though they're great. This is because at her most desperate time, when she needed someone to help her the most, the only one willing to do so was BZH!!! And I believe this point is the start of her love for him.
  • @jjwong On the surface, TJOF is about a forbidden love between teacher and disciple. For me, the story is more than that and actually revolves around the premise of whether a good person can be corrupted if the person is repeatedly let down by the people she loves and trusts. We see this theory played out through Hua Qian Gu, the main character in the story. She’s a good person but is betrayed by everyone around her, not just one time but many times to the point that her spirit is eventually broken beyond repair. By accident, HQG will come to have great power that can destroy the world and no one can stop her. Finally, she can take revenge on a world that turned its back on her but the question is, will she do it? The forbidden love story between HQG and her teacher is tragically beautiful, but I feel the importance of HQG’s teacher is not just for the love story but that he’s the only person who can keep HQG on the right path. He’s teaches her right from wrong, to live for greater ideals such as protecting the world and living for other people. She only knows pain and rejection, but from him, she learns how to love and forgive!!! Personally, I love the book a lot!!! Fortunately, the cast for the drama is wonderful, which is why ratings for the drama have been exploding even though the drama airs very late at night in China. The novel is being translated into English by me and 2 other girls.

  • @funnlim This is a tragic story. It's about an immortal (BZH) who achieved the highest level in cultivation and destroyed by his fated calamity, which in his case is a young girl named HQG. It's also about a young girl (HQG) whose life is filled with suffering because she is the reincarnation of the last god. I read they filmed the epilogues of the novel so I'm leaning towards happy ending. Can cut anybody except for the worm, and you'll see why later on. Tang Bao is a very important character because no one can break the hold BZH has on HQG except for TB later on. TB is amazingly adorable in the book, perhaps this hasn't been captured well in the drama. The mother-child relationship between HQG and TB is truly touching. I love the book and only became a fan of Wallace after seeing the stills of him as BZH. There are fans of the book who are not happy with Wallace and Zhao LiYing, but I think they're perfect!!! There are changes in the drama that are not in the book , but the author of the book is on the scriptwriting team for the drama so I'm OK with the changes. So all in all, I'm very happy with this adaption.
  • @funnlim The drama is being subbed at lighting speed at viki http://www.viki.com/tv/25474c-the-journey-of-flower I love Wallace as BZH and Zhao LiYing as HQG. They're literally the characters stepping out the the pages of the book for me!!! I think this will be one the the few dramas I will rewatch from time to time.
  • I saw an old interview Wallace did where he talked about his ideal partner. Needless to say if he still has those impossible high requirements, I'm not surprised he's still single. He sounds lonely in interviews so hopefully he can find someone who can make him happy. The female lead in the drama he's currently filming, Close Your Eyes, is quite cute. Unfortunately, before his fans like me could root for them, news came out that she's involved with someone already.
  • @amango Please read my reply to alluka about people who resort to name-calling. Until you are capable of participating in a discussion without having to resort to childish tactics like name-calling, don't waste my time by dragging this further because I'm sure it won't do anywhere. I recently went though such an experience with alluka, which is enough to last a lifetime.
  • @alluka alluka, the word "many" does not mean anything that's more than 10, at least not on planet Earth. Why do you like to embarrass yourself by insisting on using English words that you don't understand? Please also look up the word "quit" too. You say you want to quit yet you keep on replying to me. That's not what quit means. alluka, little kids resort to calling people names because they are not capable of coherent thoughts. Their brains have not formed fully so they are not capable of backing up what they want to say with facts like mature adults. Have your parents never taught you that when you call people names, the only thing it does is reflect badly on you and your upbringing? I don't understand why you insist on wasting your time trying to discredit Wallace Huo online when you can better spend the time educating yourself so you can at least understand simple English terms, such as what "many" means. That way, when you called upon to explain what you mean by saying "many fans," you are not forced to resort to using a low tactic like name-callling like a little kid and embarrass yourself.
  • @alluka alluka, I’ll take you at your word that you’re not a cow. This is because all the cows I know don’t know how to type so they won't try to discredit Wallace Huo by saying "many fans" don't support Wallace as BZH/BJY because he looks odd. Cows have better things to do with their time, like chewing grass and moo-ing. I’ll spend my time however I wish. If I need your suggestions as to what to do when I’m bored, I’ll ask. Until then, do refrain from offering any suggestions. If you feel the need to explain anything, please make sure to use the dictionary first to check carefully whatever English words you don’t know. That way, you won’t waste your time and other people’s time in a merry-go-round discussion that go nowhere.
  • @alluka alluka, you claim "many fans" don't support Wallace as BZH/BJY. I challenged the validity of your claim of "many fans." You posted links to some vocal groups and individual weibo users. These links do not show the "many fans" of which you speak of who don't support Wallace, just some fans. alluka, SOME does not equal to 10 people and MANY does not mean more than 10 people. If you don't know the meanings of certain English words, please make the effort to look the words up to make sure you understand the meanings clearly before using them. That way, you can save yourself the time of having to passionately defend something of which you do not understand clearly. This will also not waste other people's time like my time who challenge you on what you say only to find out much later that you've strange ideas on what you mean to say. The standard benchmark used worldwide to gauge viewers' support for TV dramas and actors is ratings. Yet, you say ratings don't mean anything. Your refute mathematical statistics like ratings but have no problems defending your opinions with vague statements like "many fans" think like you and you've met these people. I'm a fan of the novel, not a fan of the badly translated English title of 他来了,请闭眼. What does it matter if I shorten it to Close Your Eyes as long as you know which drama and novel I'm talking about since that's what our discussion is focused on? Who are you to require me or anyone else for that matter to do anything? You criticize the production team of Close Your Eyes about their choice of the English title. You criticize me because I don't feel like typing out a badly translated English title over and over. Before you impose requirements on other people, please have the decency to impose some requirements on yourself first. If I may suggest, you can start by looking up what "many" means in English before you use it to discredit Wallace Huo as BZH/BJY.
  • @alluka alluka, they are not ten or eleven, but that's not "many fans" considering that the total readership of the novels are in the tens of millions. Where's the huge outcry against Wallace from the millions of fans of the novels?? There's none, only vocal groups here and there that don't support Wallace, but that happens with every dramas and every actors. Just because SOME fans think a certain way doesn't mean MANY fans believe that. See the difference in meaning?? Yet, you mislead people by saying "many fans" don't support Wallace. Your example only show SOME fans, not MANY fans, which you keep on insisting. Let scientific proof, ie ratings which is determined by viewership, show whether fans truly support Wallace or not. Vocal groups online opposing Wallace mean nothing when there are also people supporting him. Don't need to look for for evidence. Just look here between you and me. Like I said, if you are a stickler for spelling and proper English grammar, please apply the requirement to yourself first before requiring other people to do the same.
