It’s gonna be a no-sleep March and April for some people! 😊
Sorry for the lack of updates last week, I was on vacation for 9 days and just got back 2 hours ago!
Till The End of The Moon (长月无烬) is adapted from the novel Black Moonlight Holds the BE Script written by Teng Luo Wei Zhi. The novel opens up with our female lead, Li Su Su (Bai Lu) tumbling through time – 500 years into the past, a time where demons haven’t controlled the Earth/realms yet. She makes an agreement with the soul of her new body, Ye Xi Wu, to save the her family from the evil thing. Ye Xi Wu is the third daughter of General Ye who is recently married to the future demon lord, Tan Tai Jin (Luo Yun Xi). For now, Tan Tai Jin is a mere hostage prince, taken to the Great Xia Empire at the tender age of six and is hated/mistreated by everyone. HOHOHO, is this not my favorite trope or what. Lol. xD Our female lead is from the future, daughter of No. 1 Immortal Sect. The demon lord wrecks havoc and rules over the realm in the present, killing and annihilating every sect, burying them in the infamous Thousand Immortals Tomb. In the present time, Su Su had one encounter with Demon Lord and he spared her life, and she’s then chosen to travel back in time and prevent all the misery from happening by removing the evil bone in his body and only then can he be killed. Who would have thought, spending time with the young him would draw out forbidden feelings, complicating her mission and compromising her heart.
DUN DUN DUN, I like the sound of this one! Woot Woot! =D
You can read the novel here @ Second Life Translations. Ongoing.
The Blue Whisper aka Yu Jiao Ji (驭鲛记 –> 与君初相识) is adapted from the novel by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang. The drama follows after our hero – the unlucky merman, saved a princess and is then captured to be her pet. She wants to tame the merman and it is said that only those who are born with the power to tame demonic creatures can manage that and they are called demon masters (sorry not technical here). Demon masters are forced to live separately from their families per the imperial decree (to control and enslave them) and they are only allowed to live in four designated areas (north/south/east/west). The Princess’ eunuch transports the merman to the most renowned demon master in the south, where our heroine is currently residing and training. The princess wants the demon master to do three things in 3 months. 1) Make the merman speak 2) Turn his tail into legs 3) Make him eternally loyal to her.
And as such, the merman is subjected to daily torture and punishments for not doing what the demon masters want. At night, our heroine would sneak into his prison cell and tend to his wounds (T_T) There’s a scene where our heroine doesn’t want to force the merman to do things against his will and so she’s tortured (whipped) per the Princess’ order! Our heroine’s backstory is quite sad. On the outside, she’s the most beloved student of the Current Demon Master of the South, but demon valley has been nothing but a prison for her since she was sent there to train at a very young age under some not-so-pleasant “monthly” treatment that she can’t reveal to the outside world. Which is why she feels empathy for the imprisoned merman and wishes to help him escape, landing her into a lot of bloody messes.
