i can't wait for White Snake :icon12::icon12: , its goin be bitter sweet
Should I watch the original and see how the storyline goes. I seriously don't like sad ending. I doubt want to watch a 50 episodes drama and at the end they don't end up together. Also, I need to go read the novel legend of Yun Xi. I heard in the novel he is even colder to people than the drama...that's why readers gave him the name ice cube.

the novel is not done translating and...there hundreds of chapters, currently its about 500ish up !!! The romance is slow tho lol. Well, i seen 3 remake of White Snake or was it 4 remake? My favorite is Fang/Christ version , they the golden couple of the late 90' and star together in 5 or 6 drama back in the days. Its a happy ending in some version and tragic in the other . Supposedly, White Snake was held capture in the gold tower by the monk for nearly 20 years , her loyal friend , Green Snake came back to defeat the monk and release White Snake and she reunited w/ her husband & son . Another version end where she was captured in the tower and remain there for hundreds of years. Not sure how they goin end it in this remake but for sure there goin be a separation beweent the husband and her infant son.

ZZH said they were not close for 2 months while filming. For the 2 months they had eaten together once lol. But seriously, I think they have such a sweet chemistry. He was asked how was it working with his female co-stars?

He said Yun Xi (I will used her drama name) is cute like a little girl:risas3:


@sarN : I don't think I want to watch it.

its just a long separation ending , Yang Guo & XLN in "condor hero return" waited 16 years . White Snake waited 18 years , its all good , one of those bitter sweet ending or you can just watch their interactions , skip the ending & imagine the rest . if they follow the remake, JJy will be married & they have a son together, cant reallly imagine she being a mother when she look like a kid herself lol

Just start reading Legend of Yun Xi. Long Feiye hahaha he is something else in the novel. Every time he appears I wanted to laugh. I love Yun Xi even more in the novel. Long Feiye is even more ruthless and arrogant in his ways of treating others around him.

When ZZH took on the role he played it where when he talks he doesn't like to look at people and making people think he acts blind...in the novel Long Feiye is a Duke in every way.

In drama LFY can't keep a straight face when it comes to YX, here is proof LOL


I haven't seen many wuxia/ancient Chinese dramas but so far the stone cold ice cube title has to go to Yu Wen Yue from Princess Agents. In 1 ep of LoYX LFY smiles more than YWY smiles in the whole complete 67 eps of PA :risas3:.

Blinded by YX (love) for sure. He can't seem to be mad at her or if he does then it wouldn't last long. She got drunk with Valley guy (I don't think Valley guy is drunk based on YX arm tug war :risas3:) he couldn't be mad at her in her drunken state & the next day everything seems fine lol. It would be great if he has more competitions competing for her affection. One Valley guy doesn't get LFY in a full jealous mode :risas3:.

ZZH's smile is so brilliantly beautiful.

In the drama long feiye smiled a lot but in the novel his overall presence and power is very intimidating. And his aloofness and distance nature is so off putting lol. He doesn't like to talk much to people and his sentences are so short. And when he talks to YunXi he more than often leaves her hanging. Everybody is afraid of the Duke.

Though as arrogant as he is in the novel I still like him.

Yes, novel and drama are like 2 different people. In the novel they made him like a fearful God. I do like their interactions. YunXi in the novel is similar to the drama though. But some of the thoughts in her head about Long Feiye is funny. He treat a lot of people like their existence is a mere bothersome or afterthought but with YunXi...he is as normal as he ever get.

The beginning after they got married and they had to produce a cloth with bloodstain on it to prove they consummate their marriage lol. Long Feiye disappeared then later show up with a cloth with fresh bloodstain hahaha. I love the reaction because no one believes they did it. But without cloth YunXi knows she would be put to death.

He stared at people a lot without saying much. And in turned when he does say something, everyone listened. That is why they dubbed him the Ice Cube. He dismissed people so easily that it's the norm lol. I read it from one of the link I found on YT. I am only on chapter 98...each chapter is pretty short. Like sarN said, it is up to 500 chapters in English but supposed to have 1000 chapters?

Fans of the drama should give the novel a try. I love the novel because it is so in depth and have so many more of Long Feiye and Yunxi. I am on chapter 205 and one Chinese fan said it is 1,300 chapters:)

Though after watching the drama and reading the novel, I have to say Long Feiye is completely 2 different people. Long Feiye in the novel is a bigger than life character. Everyone in the novel is afraid of him. The fear he instilled in people just by walking in a room. And he is ruthless. He pretty much treat people like they aren't worth his time...even his relationship with his mom is pretty nonexistent. People were honored if he talks to them even if it's in an unflattering way lol. In the novel he is a tall person as in taller than pretty much everybody that is why his presence is so commanding. He has this attitude that half the time he just walks away from people without even a care.

One scene in the book that stayed with me, is when Yunxi was almost dropped in the oil pot and burned to death. Her dress was dipped in it a bit when he burst into the jail and pulled the rope with one hand and her waist with the other. He examined her, ripped the bottom of her dress off because it was wet from the oil. She thought of him as her hero, with adorning eyes...then when he thought she was OK, he shoved her away like it was nothing hahaha. And then when she almost died, he was trying to find her some medicines. He didn't know what he was looking for when he poured all her stuff out from her pouch. Then he found 6 pills that is a size of a bottle cap lol and shoved it all in her mouth at once. She had to spit it out. He gave her 3 more, then have the nerve to tell her to take it one at a time because no one is going to steal it from her :risas3:

And Yunxi in the book is such an amazing character. She gets herself into all sort of things. I seriously love her in the book.

ZZH did amazing in the drama. He to me made Long Feiye his own. Oh, the main actress accepted 3 dramas but none with ZZH lol. The fans will wait forever to have them reunited. I heard this drama did well. But it is not a lakorn so no reunion for a long while ::crybaby2:

That smile when he was in the black outfit always get me. I think ZZH has a nice complexion in the drama but when they held the press conference he was so light skin. Some parts of the drama he looks beige or something. But in reality he's straight up light.

I was rewatching a scene of when yunxi jumped on him trying to get the paper from his hand...both ZZH and the actress broke character and laugh. He was to keep a straight face but couldn't. I had to watched the scene a couple of times to see it lol. ZZH was turning a bit to get away from her but he was smiling pretty big. She did it first then he couldn't hold it :)

Sigh should have ignored the novel lol. I think this drama would have been better if it had season 2. The book has way to many plot points to cover...I mean a lot. All I have to say is in the novel Duke Qin is so freaking possessive of Yunxi. He would not trade her for a nation and he gets jealous of the men around her so easily even a little squirrel isn't safe.

And Dr. Gu Beiyu (spelling) is so sweet in the book that my heart melts for him. IDK reading the book makes me wish they really keep an opening ending and just shoot season 2 already.
