New Posters for Lost You Forever with Yang Zi, Deng Wei, and Tan Jian Ci as it wrapped up filming

Hello guys! Long time no see! Hopefully, after all the excitement ends in October, I’ll be able to get back to blogging more. Thanks for your understanding! <3

Lost You Forever (Eternally Yearning For You, 长相思) is a novel written by the well-loved Tong Hua, and is the sequel to Once Promised (drama version is called A Life Time Love with Huang Xiao Ming and Song Qian in 2017).

It is a world of gods, demons, and mythical beings and they all live alongside humans, divided into three different kingdoms. I want to preface this by saying that most of the characters have multiple identities (very confusing to me as I only wanted spoilers!). Our heroine, Xiao Yao (Yang Zi), is a small-town doctor and spends the majority of the first part (multiple volumes) of the novel as a man. She has no memories of her past in the beginning of the novel. In her life, three important men will sweep in and only one shall remain by her side. The first man that we meet in according to the novel is Tu Shan Jing (Deng Wei). He’s beaten to a pulp and in no condition to survive, left to die on the streets. But our heroine picks him up and heals him. And in return, he promises to be her servant, to listen to only her. He’s actually the 2nd young master of a powerful family. The second man we meet shortly after is part of the past that she doesn’t remember. He’s Zhuan Xu (Zhang Wan Yi), a long-lost cousin she spent time with during her childhood. His side of the story isn’t told until the third volume, which makes for an interesting WAH moment (hidden for so long?!). Lol. The third male lead is a general with white hair; he is Xiang Liu (Tan Jian Ci), a nine-headed demon and wildly considered as her soulmate.

Koala has translated the novel, read chapter one here. Please go to her index to find the rest of the chapters.

Lyrics Translation: Love Between Fairy and Devil Opening and Ending Theme Songs

Hey guys! Our trio of talented volunteers, Maymay and Becky (translations), and Lin (subtitles), have joined hands to translate the opening and ending theme songs for the currently airing drama Love Between Fairy and Devil, which is adapted from the novel Cang Lan Jue (苍兰诀) by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang starring Dylan Wang He Di and Esther Yu Shu Xin.

It follows the romance of the ancient Demon King resurrected thanks to a powerless, immortal Little Orchid. The beginning sounds quite humorous with them inhabiting each other’s body causing the demon clan to be stupefied by their Lord’s behavior from time to time. Our trusting Little Orchid slowly defrosts the cold, arrogant, powerful Demon King.

The novel is currently being translated by a sweet and stressed-out high school teenager (Lol, so cute), Rosie @ her blog. Fighting!

I have written spoilers for the novel before in my previous posts, but knowing how novel-to-drama adaptations go, not sure how much of the original story is still left. *shrugs* Happy watching!

The Legendary Life Of Queen Lau with La Mu Yang Zi and Li Hong Yi

The Legendary Life of Queen Lau (皇后刘黑胖) is adapted from the novel written by Ge Yang. It’s a comedy historical drama and follows the story of our heroine, a Prime Minister’s illegitimate daughter, who is abandoned by him. But the day the Empress Dowager wants to link the two families through marriage, villainy dad is too eager to find his not-so-pretty daughter back. Due to her dark skin and chubby figure, our heroine isn’t favorably looked upon. The funny thing here is this: the Empress Dowager actually wants the Crown Prince to marry Prime Minister’s distant relative – his niece, who’s pretty and well-educated. So our plucky heroine marries into the palace and becomes the Crown Princess at age 9/10 in the novel. The two kids of course start off on the wrong foot but the years they spend together cement their friendship, which sets up the foundation for many laughs and eventual romance.

To air 6/24~
