Meng Hua Lu (汴京梦华图) has quietly begun filming on 2/17. The story follows our heroine as she works her way to make a career for herself during the Song Dynasty. Our heroine is a tea house owner waiting for her fiancé to pass the imperial examination. When he does pass it, he breaks the engagement (what a jerk!) Unwilling to accept such fate, she travels to the capitol to seek justice. Along her journey, she saves and makes friends with two women. Both have miserable life and marriages – one is tricked into marriage and is being treated unkindly, the other is stuck in an unhappy marriage and wants to commit suicide to end it all. When her ex-fiancé learns that she’s coming, he uses various methods to kick her out. But the three friends are not going anywhere despite the obstacles and challenges they face as women during the time. From a small tea house, their business grows into the most well-known restaurant of Biàn Jīng (Today’s Kai Feng). Hmmm, where does Chen Xiao fit in here? At least, he gets to romance another Little Dragon Girl. 😉
Other cast members include Lin Yun, Liu Yan, and Wang Yan Lin. I’m sure Wang Yan Lin is gonna play the jerk fiancé already. LOL.
Finally, the end is here! Can’t believe I made it through all 60 episodes after everyone else gave up. I must be a crazy person. 🙂 There are some actors on this show who I hope to see again in other series, but I hope I never end up recapping a series like this one again. Don’t think I could make it through next time.
So let’s finish the final three episodes of Martial Universe!
Did a marathon of last week’s episodes to catch up on this series before the final three episodes and now I’m all annoyed with this series all over again. This week was flashbacks galore, sad music galore, pity parties everywhere, things get even more complicated and then they ended the week by breaking my heart. *sigh* If Lang Tian doesn’t suffer a miserable death at the end of this… argh!!!
So let’s hurry up and get through week 4 of Martial Universe!
After moving to another state and trying to get settled in, I’m catching up on the latest episodes of Martial Universe. This week our Tiger finally found his Tigress (or I should say Fox), Lang Tian still can’t be defeated, Qing Zhu finally finds out what happened to her father and Lin Diao even shows that he’s more than just a little brat.
Now that Dramafever is no longer, I’ll be watching this show on Viki.com and, since they aren’t turning episodes around as quickly as Dramafever was, there may be a two or three day delay for me to post the recaps for the week, but I’ll keep posting as soon as they are finished.
This week: Lang Tian bites the hand that fed him…and takes her powers, my favourite Tiger finally returns, Lin Dong reunites with his sister, some characters get killed off, and we travel to the Demon Domain and meet a bunch of new characters including Lin Diao’s family and future wife. So let’s start week 2 of Martial Universe!
It’s baaaa-aaack! Everyone’s favourite show to read the recaps for instead of watch is here. Based on the Season 1 finale and the trailer for Season 2, I’m hopeful that it will start to get better. (And if you want English subs, Dramafever has them 8 hours after the show airs in China while Viki is taking a while on theirs.)
This week: Lin Dong tries to get another talisman, Lang Tian officially joins the dark side (they have cookies!), Huan Huan takes the next step to becoming the Ice Master and Dao Sect loses some disciples. So let’s begin Season 2 of Martial Universe!
Yes, Season 2 of Martial Universe starts tomorrow and, as promised, I’ll be recapping it once again as I watch the subtitled versions on Viki. (Oh, for the love of William Chan, why did it have to start this week?!?!) I’ll start posting next week while I also finish recapping the final week and a half of Let’s Shake It 2. (Still trying to figure out the exact schedule for the episodes this season since they are starting on Thursday instead of Tuesday.)
Enid Bee: I know IMOmusings is done with this series and I’m ready to start recapping a new show, so I’m taking over screenshot and formatting duties for this final post to give her a much needed break and to get these done for all our faithful readers. (Hi, Hohliu!)
So for one last time, we get another Yimo, a few more new characters, a lot of self-sacrificing, a runaway bride, some sad break-ups and someone finally goes to the dark side. Let’s begin the final two weeks of Season 1!
