Guess who just jumped on Mark Chao’s bandwagon?
Who else? 😛 😀
I didn’t plan on watching Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms. I feel guilty supporting anything based on Tang Qi Gong Zi’s novels because it’s not right for her to make so much money from plagiarizing other writers. Plus the promotional pics released before the drama aired were horrible, with the worst being the pics for Mark Chao.
Too much black. Hey, where’s the pretty?
Look, Linda Chung’s long lost twin has been found!
But curiosity got the better of me, so I checked out the first episode. The only thing I can say is Mark Chao happened, and the next thing I knew, I’ve joined his fan club and this is my first drama addiction in 2017. I love it so much I even watch it live, which is something I rarely do. You can watch it live at http://www.letvlive.com/tv.php?id=dongfang or with English subs at Dramafever.
This drama has exceeded all of my expectations (cough-not that I had any to begin with-cough) mainly because of Mark Chao. It’s difficult to portray characters in novels because real people are rarely as good as our imagination, but Mark Chao has done a phenomenal job. To me, he is Heaven’s Crown Prince Ye Hua stepping out of the pages of the novel.
It’s not easy to play stoic characters such as Ye Hua, but Mark Chao somehow manages to be stoic but also shows a range of emotions from loving Yang Mi’s character Bai Qian.
Mark Chao as Ye Hua, better than what I ever imagined!!!
Although Mark Chao isn’t new, this is my first time watching him. Thank goodness I gave this drama a go because I think I’ve found my favorite male actor for Chinese dramas. More popular Chinese romance novels are being adapted into dramas, and I want him as the male lead for all of them.
More of this, please!!!!
Adorablexd has kindly decided to help translate TJOF. Staring with chapter 83 and onward, updates will be posted at @ https://adorablexd.wordpress.com/
Translating is hard work so please don’t rush her. Also, do leave plenty of comments at her blog to encourage her.
Thank you so much to adorablexd for resurrecting this project!!! 😛 😀
I had hoped this heartbreaking day would never come. After 6 years, Kang Gary has decided to leave South Korean variety show Running Man to focus on music.
I know you didn’t make this decision lightly, Gary. Nonetheless, my heart is broken.
I’ll miss you, Gaelly Gaelly!! 😭😭😭

There’s a Park Bo Gum fever going around. Since I’ve no immunity against handsome faces, I’m infected as well, lol.
PBG’s drama Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is based on a Korean novel. I’ve been googling nonstop hoping to find a translation of the novel. Hey, hard work does pay off because look what I found!!!!
Viet edit by a kind soul @ https://tulipgardenblog.wordpress.com/ (Woot!!! Woot!!!~~~)
I read that the Viet version is based off of a Chinese machine translation of the Korean novel. This means some stuff will probably be lost in translation, but beggars can’t be choosy, lol. If you know Chinese, you can search for the Chinese version online. Good luck!!!
As of right now, I’m not aware of a translation in English or any other languages except Chinese and Viet.
Of course anyone who can buy the original novel in Korean should do so to support the author. Unfortunately, there are many fans who live overseas and don’t know Korean :(.
This is a summary, not a full translation. I can’t translate the entire epilogue because it is too long and complicated, but I did translate 2 sections. Summary is italicized, direct translation is in regular font.
The first translated section is about BZH seeing the adult form of HQG for the first time. The second translated section is about BZH wanting to follow HQG to the savage wilderness. The latter section was requested by steffyjames, who generously helps out in the Discussion Corner so I want to do something to thank her.Read More »
Qing Shui pulled at Luo Shi Yi: “How is it? Still not allowing people to see her! What should we do? She’s heavily injured!” She began to cry.
Xiu Mu Qing Liu patted her shoulder: “Don’t worry, Zun Shang saved her so he won’t let her die.”
“But Shuo Feng isn’t here! He disappeared with Hua Qian Gu! Where did they go? He’s the calmest and smartest person! If he were here, there’s probably a way!”

There was complete silence, everyone was shocked, the atmosphere was bleak and filled with the heavy stench of blood.
Luo Shi Yi and the others were sad, although Hua Qian Gu was saved, she was now paralyzed. Not living but also not dying, death was simpler and easier.
Mo Yan was angry: “Sect junior, what are you doing? In front of the immortals here, are you not protecting her? Outsiders would think Chang Liu is giving her preferential treatment.”

The prison was not far from Chang Liu’s main hall, but it was a long walk for Hua Qian Gu. Because she was the Sect Leader’s disciple, and she always treated everyone well, the disciples responsible for escorting her knew her and did not press her along.
Hua Qian Gu walked slowly, wising the path would never end. Looking up at Jue Qing Hall floating in the sky, she wanted to return there and look around for one last time, to see if the peach tree she recently planted had bloomed.
Glancing around, the exquisite surrounding was shrouded in mist between the sea and the sky, this had become her second home. Here, she spent the best seven years of her life. No matter how terrible the punishment waiting for her, perhaps she would be killed, but she was not afraid, the only thing she feared, it would be the disappointment in Teacher’s eyes.

Hua Qian Gu tried to use her internal energy, but she could not do so because there was a mysterious pressure in her stomach, preventing her from using her power. She pressed an acupoint on Nan Wu Yue to wake him up. He was surprised to find himself in prison and not in the black hole. Hua Qian Gu asked him if he was afraid to die, and he said no. She told him to run away if there is a chance, but he should try his best to never harm innocent people. Nan Wu Yue did not want to leave her behind, but she felt she had to stay at Chang Liu because she deserved to be punished.
It was damp and dark everywhere, the silence was like death, no other prisoners were seen. The Court of Law implemented penalties quickly and rigidly, rarely imprisoning anyone so the prison temporarily detained the accused before deciding what is to be done.
It was difficult to know how much time had passed, the sound of someone was suddenly heard. Hua Qian Gu looked up, it was Dong Fang Yu Qing. She knew he would find a way to visit.

Bai Zi Hua and Sha Qian Mo were in a deadlock in the air. The crowd held its breath and waited to see what would happen. Sha Qian Mo was furious and withdrew his red Fei Ye sword, which he rarely used because his power was usually enough to defeat his enemies and the sword color clashed with his outfits. His intention to kill was clear. In contrast, Bai Zi Hua was calm but appeared ready to fight against Sha Qian Mo.
Hua Qian Gu and Nan Wu Yue were trapped in a wall of light, circling slowly around Bai Zi Hua. Dong Fang Yu Qing looked at the two of them and could not believe what he saw. His eyes flashed with happiness. He decided to take a risk and let Hua Qian Gu go with Bai Zi Hua.
Unfortunately, Sha Qian Mo had a different mindset. He began to furiously attack Bai Zi Hua, moving so quickly that everyone only saw flashes of his purple outfit. Bai Zi Hua flew higher into the sky to avoid Sha Qian Mo’s deadly strikes. If Sha Qian Mo attacked with 100 strikes, Bai Zi Hua only retaliated with 1 strike. The Heng Shuang sword moved easily in tandem with its owner. In the meantime, Hua Qian Gu and Nan Wu Yue continued to float around him, never too close but never too far away.
