Because This is My First Life (KDrama Review)

Because This is My First Life (KDrama Review)

This is a rather tender love story.  It stars the gorgeous Jung So-Min and a return to the small screen for Lee Min-ki in a leading role after 10 years.

I would watch anything with Jung So-min in it because she is such a good actress and she has that fresh and bright screen presence, which I like.

I was really pleasantly surprised with this drama.  There are a lot of things going on with the various characters.  But in the middle of it all is a tender and sweet developing love story between two lonely and rather reserved individuals.

Jung So-min plays Yoon Ji-ho, a 30 year old assistant writer of melodrama who is being taken advantage by work mates and family and became homeless.  By sheer coincidence she ended up renting a spare room with Nam-se-hee (played by Lee Min-ki).

Se-hee at 38 had his life planned in minute details.  He owns his apartment through mortgage which he hoped to have paid in 12 years time and is scrimping every penny to do so.

Nam-se-hee has rented out his spare room but had had bad luck with tenants until he met Ji-ho. She was ideal for him.  She is quite house-proud.  When writing, she would clean and polish every surface in the house to get her inspiration.  She also love the Kitty, Se-hee’s cat.  That’s not all she avidly does the recycling.  And to top it all, she loves football/soccer.  She support Arsenal just like Se-hee and they would spend time watching the game on tv. In their contract, they agreed that they can not like each other.

Se-hee’s parents are pressuring him to settle down and get married.  Se-hee asked Ji-hoo to marry him but Ji-hoo had to turn him down as she equates marriage with love and not just a landlord and tenant but with a marriage contract.  🙂

Ji-hoo moved out but found that she was lonelier and so does Se-hee.  He was missing her.

I love that Se-hee is beginning to loosen up a bit from being very uptight.  It is very slowly but really rather sweet to watch.

In episodes 3-4, after Ji-hoo was assaulted by a drunk actor, whom she had a crush on for three years, Ji-hoo was at her lowest ebb.  This finally drove her to accept Se-hee’s proposal of marriage.

It is a sweet love story and Min-ki and So-Min have a good chemistry.

I can’t wait for tonight’s episode.  By the way, this is a very short series of only 10 episodes.

I do highly recommend this drama.  In the first episode there was that conversation about the neocortex.  The neocortex is that part of the brain that gives you memory and sensory. The neocortex is the price humans have to pay for evolution.

Fated to Love You (You’re My Destiny) Dramas

This drama is so good that it has been remade in Korean and currently by Thailand.  The original version is of course the very watchable Joe Chen and Ethan Ruan 2008 Fated to Love You Taiwanese version.

Go Back Couple (Korean Drama Review)

Go Back Couple (Korean Drama Review)

I first heard about this drama a couple of months ago.  I heard it was going to be a Jang Na-ra starrer and I looked forward to it.  Jang Na-ra has a delicate expressive face, which never ages.  I love her, there is always vulnerability to her acting that gets or speaks to you.

Go Back Couple is a time travel drama, shown on Fridays and Saturdays with 16 episodes.

Choi Ban-Do (played by Son Ho-Jun) and Ma Jin-Joo (played by Jang Na-Ra) are both 38-years-old and a married couple who got together when they were both in university.

Fast-forward 14 years on, Choi Ban-Do works as a medical sales rep, not sure what happened as I thought he was studying civil engineering (civil construction), and Ma Jin-Joo is a housewife with a toddler to look after.

Ban-Do is a hardworking man, who does everything for his clients, almost  24/7, that he has neglected his wife and their child.

Due to misunderstanding and hardship of fulfilling their responsibilities, they began to take each other for granted and only ended up bickering when they are together .

During an anniversary that they could not celebrate, in the heat of the moment, due to utter frustration. The last straw was Jin-Joo finding a credit card statement with hotel bills and then being sent a photo of her husband holding another woman (this was all innocent, of course).

Jin Joo announced to her husband that she wanted a divorce.  Do Ban-do was at first surprised, but agreed to it.  Within a month, they were divorced.

They realised that they had married too young and wished they could go back and restart their respective lives.

On the day of the divorce, they both took their wedding rings off.  Jin-Joo dropped hers while aboard a bus and Ban-do threw his outside his bedroom window.  Both rings seemed to undergo something supernatural. Jin-joo and Ban-do experienced an earthquake-like shaking and rattling.

The next morning they both woke up in the bodies of their 20 year old selves.

Jin-Joo’s first scene as a 20 years old was really poignant that it brought tears to my eyes.  She was crying out for her dead mother in her sleep.  But she was being woken up by her mother.  She was so happy to see her.  Throughout the morning she hugged and followed her mother, who said she was beginning to creep out with Jin-Joo’s clinginess.

I love this drama, so much so that I first watched it raw, I just can’t wait for the subtitles. And then watched it this morning with the English sub.  The mother scene still got to me.

I am putting a lot of faith in this drama.  There have been so many Korean dramas that I could only watch 2-3 episodes and I tend to give up fairly early on.

I supposed the storyline of this drama is more appropriate to me, being married.  Don’t I wish sometimes that I can go back in time?  Hell, yeah!!!

Episode 2 is also very watchable. Jin-Joo tried to restart her life but her ex seemed to be everywhere.  On a blind-date where they first met, Ban-do ended up still choosing her but said he did it so he can dump her.  She followed him out of the restaurant only to find him chasing after his first love.  Jin-Joo was heartbroken.  She comforted herself that at least it is a closure but she heard a little voice and saw the figure of their toddler following her.

She ended up in a flood of tears and mistakenly got into the back seat of Jung Nam Gil’s (second male lead) car, thinking it was a taxi.  I actually want these two to get together.

Again her scene sleeping next to her mother made me cry. huhuhu

Episode 3

They are now both getting into the single life.  There was a scene where Jin-Joo in her high-heels running on a slippery slope and being rescued by the handsome Jung Nam Gil (Chang Ki Yong) wearing his ROTC uniform.  I have to admit that was so romantic.  I wanted them to get together there and then.  🙂   Oh the clubbing scene is really nostalgic.  Loving this drama.  I watched it raw and then with subtitle.

Ban Do has a double standard mentality.  He doesn’t stop himself from enjoying his youth but time and again would remind Jin-Joo that she was an old woman with a child.

It is that addictive.

Episode 4

Again I wish that Nam Gil and Jin-Joo get it together in the end because they do have such a lovely chemistry.  It is young and fresh.  I watched this episode so many times, fast-forwarding sometimes on the scene between these two.  I am an old romantic.

I can’t went for next week.

Ashi Girl (Japanese Drama Review)

Ashi Girl

Ashi Girl (Japanese Drama Review)

After Overprotected Kohoko, Ashi Girl is my new Japanese drama to follow.

I have just watch the first 2 episodes with English subtitles and the 3 one in a ‘raw’ form.  Well it was that good that I had to watch it even if I only barely understand it.  🙂

Hayakawa Yui is  a 16 year old girl, who lacks motivation in her studies.  She is a bit of a tomboy, the one thing that she excels in was PE (Physical Education) more specifically, running.  She can run so fast that  everyone comments that the only fast thing about Yui are her feet.

Yui lives with her house-husband father, a doctor mother and a brainiac younger brother.

One day, Yui went into her brother’s ‘boy cave’ to call him for dinner but found him looking like he was about to commit seppuku, which is better known, I think, as harakiri (belly cutting/suicide).

The brother told her immediately that that was not the case but he has invented a way of going back into the past.  He wanted to send all the bullies from his school to the warring era of the Senguko period.

Her brother showed her the device, which was the knife he was holding, that would send anyone to the past.  Before the brother could warn her to be careful, Yui unsheathed the knife, which catapulted her into the Senguko period.

She was so hungry that she was about to eat fungi growing in the forest.  But warned by a rather handsome young man that the mushrooms were poisonous.  Yui fell in love.

The young man happens to be the crown prince.  He was Hagi Tadakiyo.

Despite her school uniform, the men thought she was a boy and she got recruited to be one of them as a foot soldier.  They thought she was Yuinisuke, the son of one of the villagers.

When she got to the village, Yuinisuke’s mom pretended that she was her long lost son.  The mother knew immediately that she was a girl and she sort of protected her.

From then on, she met a lot of adventure but her raison d’etre was to be closed to the crown prince.

She was back into the present by the second episode.  She found that she was missing the crown prince.  She dreams about him all the time.

So in the third episode, she opted to go back to the past and save the crown prince, who was said to have only 6 months to live according to history books.

Ashi Girl is apparently a manga story.  I have to admit that it is really quite endearing to watch.  Yui and the crown prince are so cute.

So looking forward to more adventures of these two.

I think this drama is composed of 12 episodes.

 

 

Princess Agents & Legend of Lu Zhen

I have to admit that I was not really into historical action dramas but after watching Yang yang’s Once Upon A time, I thought I should give it a go.

Here are my first choices and both dramas featured Zanilia Zhao, also sometimes called Zhao Liying.

Princess Agents & Legend of Lu Zhen

Princess Agents

Princess Agents

This is a historical drama which currently hold the top rating as the most watched Chinese drama of all time.

As I previously mentioned, the leading lady is played by Zanilia Zhao (Chu Qiao / Jin Xiaoliu / Xing’er)  and the two male leads vying for her affection were Lin Gengxin as Yuwan Yue and Shawn Dou as Yan Xun.

Zanilia was cute and slightly chubby in her previous dramas like in Boss & Me but she lost a lot of weight for this drama.  Probably from intentional dieting or the rigorous training for the kungfu scenes.

I have to admit (I am admitting a lot of things here 🙂 lol) that I am not one for prolong fights like boxing, punching & kicking but in this drama it was done in another level.  It was so beautiful.  I could actually watch just the fighting scenes all day if I have to.  The fight scenes between Ying’er and Yuwan Yue were rather erotic.  Lots of flying into the air, lots of swishing of beautiful and colourful garments and both of them looking bloody gorgeous.

The story was quite memorable (or just probably the leads gave such good performance) that it was so disappointing when it finally ended after 58 episodes.

The earlier episodes grabbed you so tightly that you can’t help yourself but be hooked.

Princess Agents was during the time when Northern Wei was in chaos.  Factions were sprouting against the emperor all the time, due to the state of the region.  Ordinary citizens where captured and turned into slaves.  And this what exactly happened to Jin Xiaoliu.  She was kidnapped to be one of the running maidens to be hunted by ferocious wolves as well as the kingdom’s royalty.  This scene was gloriously well composed and the cinematography was a sensory delight.

Jin Xiaoliu survived the perilous hunt and ended up as a slave in Yuwan Yue’s manor.  He renamed her as Xing’er and started training her in Kungfu.

She found out later (she has amnesia 🙂 ) that she is the daughter of Luo He, the master of Feng Yun order and that she could find all the answers to her question at Yibai, which coincidentally is the principality of Yan Xun’s family.  At this time his family were all slaughtered by the Wei emperor.

The ending is so sad and a tad annoying as it was left hanging.  The gorgeous Yuwan Yue dies while Xing’er who has now reverted back to her original name of Chu Qiao dove into the freezing water to save him.  But with his last remaining straining he pushed her away to survive.

There are so many beautiful scene and a full use of CGI was used.  Some hated it but I just love it.

Highly recommended for good viewing even for just the fight scenes!  Enjoy!

Legend of Lu Zhen aka Female Prime Minister

Legend of Lu Zhen

This is an earlier Zanilia Zhao drama, where she constantly reminded me of Jang Na ra.

Anyway Zanilia played Lu Zhen, a young girl who was very capable, patient and methodical and with a good heart.

She saved a young man from a near death occurrence, not knowing that he was the Prince of Northern Qi dynasty.

Anyway the story is more straight forward that the Princess Agents.  It tells the rise to power from a mere palace maid to the first female Prime Minister of the kingdom.

She also got her man in the end, however she did not get the title of his Empress because of circumstances that foist upon her.

The drama is very watchable and the gorgeous actor Chen Xiao played Gao Zhan so affectingly.

Again, lovely drama of 59 episodes.

I know I have not had a good or enough night sleep for ages.

Single Rider (Korean Film Review)

Single Rider poster

Single Rider (Korean Film Review)

As soon as I’d seen this film was available to see and it had been subbed in English, I  just can’t wait. I had to watch it pronto and I had! 🙂

I have looked forward to this film, I think, as early as late last year when I saw a very brief trailer.

It starts two of Korea’s best actors. Lee Byung-hun and Gong Hye-jin.

Anyway, I am an old romantic.  As I watched the film I thought it would be about the husband turning into a psycho as he finds his wife having it off with her Downunder neighbour. 🙂 A cliche but I do love a bit of a gut-wrenching scenes. 🙂

I wanted them to meet and have a good emotional, heartbreaking confrontation.  Instead it meandered from scene to scene.

The husband just continued tailing people connected to his wife and young son.

At the back of my mind I was still hoping for the big confrontation.

There was a scene, where the wife and the guy next-door engaging in a bit of hanky-panky.  Lee Byung-hun’s character stood immobile just outside the door.  I was so irritated.  I wanted him to knock and disturb his wife dalliance with the beefy neighbour, but no such thing.

Instead there was a surprise, which I am not going to tell as it might spoil your appetite to see a good film.

Anyway Lee Byung-hun plays Kang Jae-hoon, who was a fund asset manager.  Unfortunately his company declared themselves bankrupt after buying bad loans.  He lost his clients tonnes of money, his family as well and his own.   He then had to take responsibilities to his clients.

Kudos to him, he did feel bad for his clients.  So bad that he was on  anti-suppressant drugs.

One night while talking his medication which was washed down by a neat whiskey or brandy, he decided to book himself an e-ticket to Australia.

There he went to see his wife and son.  His wife is Soo-jin played by Gong Hyo-jin.

He sent his wife and son to Australia for education.  He believed in the necessity of learning the English language.

Anyway in Australia, he found that his wife and son were happy.  Soo-jin has taken the violin again and went as far as to audition for the Sydney Opera House.  He felt that he lost them and he was redundant family member.

It was a very sad ending and if you have not taken stock of everything, you will be surprised with the sad ending.

Lee Byung-hun once again gave a very powerful performance which is ably supported by Gong Hyo-jin

It is a ‘lovely’ date night movie.

 

The Eternal Love (Chinese Drama Review)

The Eternal Love poster

 

The Eternal Love (Chinese Drama Review)

I am watching this drama this weekend.

I have just finished episode 1 and I must say, I enjoyed it.

It is a time travelling drama.

A girl from the present time, travels to the past and possessing the body of the Second Daughter, Qu Tan Er of the Qu Family.

Qu Tan Er, poor girl has developed a rather schizophrenic personality.  One minute she is the demure, introverted and shy Qu Tan Er and then she is possessed by the girl from the 21st century who is feisty, modern and self-confident, Xiao Tan.

The back story was that Qu Tan Er tried committing suicide as she was being forced to marry the 8th Prince when she was already in love with the King’s oldest son.

When she recovered enough from her suicide attempt, she became a different person.

I must say this drama is so entertaining that I have just finished watching episode 2.  I was surprised how quick it went.

Episode 2, Qu Tan Er has now become the consort of the 8th Prince.

Episode 24:  Yup it is 12:58am and finally finished last episode of this interesting and enjoyable drama.  It is full of action, and beautiful sceneries.  There are also yards upon yards of beautiful free-flowing Hanfu costume.

And the actors are so flawlessly gorgeous.

Most importantly, if you wanted romance, this sure is big, I mean huge in romance.  The kissing scenes are so sweetly erotic.

Love this drama. It is not flawless because some of the dialogues (or probably the English translation) would leave you feeling mehhhh!  Like when ‘Old Weirdo” said that the Demon king has grown really powerful and became an expert in Martial arts.  That was funny.

If you are feeling nostalgic in living in the past, wearing all those beautiful flowy hanfu, think again, apparently your family can be your own worst enemy.

So much so that I shall be watching Princess Agents or is it Agent Princess. 🙂

And last but not the least to mention is that it has  beautifully haunting original soundstracks (OST)

77 Heartbreaks – Film Review

77 Heartbreaks – Film Review

I watched this film late last night and I quite enjoyed it.  It was very interesting concept, pity the script was not well written. But there a very good germ of idea in there.  🙂

The story would have been more believable and would have appealed more to lovers and those who had broken up if the writer did not try to make the story a makjang or a series of circumstances.

The story is about a woman and a man who have been together for the last 10 years.  Over time, the woman started to feel as if she was taken for granted by her boyfriend.  She was not his priority anymore.

And just to elaborate on this, they were supposed to be going out for a movie, which the girl had bought tickets for two weeks ago.  She was waiting for the man, who said that he was in the middle of traffic, but really in a wine bar.

As she can’t wait any longer, the girl wandered into a shop, where she saw beautiful colourful notebooks, which has 77 written on the cover.  She got talking to the owner of the shop and apparently the notebook is some sort of diary.  To diarise transgression of a love one 🙂 ( I think, I was so tired I can’t cope with the subtitles).  Apparently 77 is the magic number or the maximum you can forgive faults of those you are in a relationship with.

Eva, the leading lady, bought a pink one and the first entry to her diary was the non-show of her boyfriend, Adam, to their movie date.

Before long, Eva had her 77 instances why she was falling out of love with Adam.  He was self-centred, immature, in with the ladies and lack common sense.  Who would buy a white chesterfield sofa, so huge there was nowhere really to put it?  Yes Adam.  Who in their right mind would say they quit their job while in the middle of foreplay?!!!  Adam! He was a lawyer but quit his job to become a mentor in kick-boxing.  Oh Adam! 🙁  Who would go on a holiday without finding out how to get to the destination?  Adam. Who would give a ring box without the ring but a pink paper folded in small heart shape, saying she has his heart.  Adam! 🙁  Who would go drinking and come home, half dead and sick.  Adam!  Who would comfort you when you have a family emergency, like when your father died?  Not Adam!

After so many of these unlovable moments, Eva had had enough and packed her bags.

Before Eva’s scent can fully evaporate around their flat, Adam brought home another girl and even promised to marry her.

The film is rather one sided.  Adam had so many faults but Eva have as well but the script did not show this.  I supposed the script was concentrating on getting the 77 heartbreaks 🙂 🙂 🙂

Anyway, Adam got hold of the diary and realised why Eve left him.  He was curious to know what was on the 77th?!!!  He told the current girl he was living with the he still loves Eve.

During a wedding party of Eve’s friend, Adam sabotaged the wedding presentation to proclaim that he wanted Eve back.  It was strange that the married couple did not scream and shout when their wedding day was hijacked?!!!

Anyway Eve had a change of heart when Adam said that Eve did not give up on Adam immediately because she knew that without her Adam is lost.

Awww

Next scene, Adam and Even went back to their flat.  While in the bathroom, Eve found a pick contact lenses case.  She then knew that Adam had had another girl staying in their flat.

She left again and this time for good, when it was the end of the film.

By the way the 77th reason was that Adam did not use protection with her, so she got pregnant.  Adam said that if she gets pregnant, there is no problem, as he will marry her.  Seeing that he was so immature and untrustworthy, Eve had an abortion without telling Adam.  She is a bit of hypocrite, how can she have an abortion without telling Adam.

I think the film is quite good, if only the script was written better.  In any case, it is worth a watch!

 

Steve McQueen’s The Blob film

The Blob poster

Steve McQueen’s The Blob film

There was something from my timeline in Facebook this morning from Dr Who and the TARDIS   querying the film watched as a child that gave me nightmares.

I actually have an easy answer to that.

It was The Blob, which I saw when I was 5 or 6 years old back in Manila, Philippines.

I remember this blob which roles on to people and consumes them.  As it eats more people, it grows larger and larger.

I had nightmares after watching it.  I remember particularly a nightmarish night when I was very ill with malaria as a child.  In my dream, I was being chased by the blob which somehow metamorphosed into huge letters.  The letter ‘E’ was vicious :), it was turning and rolling and was after me.  I used to have this kind of nightmare till my early adulthood.  So it is really necessary not to let children watched films not suitable for their age.

The film, The Blob, was a young Steve McQueen starrer.  It was made in 1958, way before he became really famous.

The story goes that Steve and Aneta’s characters were on a date in the Lover’s Lane when Steve saw a falling meteorite, which caused a bit of a bang as it fell nearby.  Steve and Aneta decided to investigate.

They found a very distress man, whose hand had swollen up.  They saw something on it.  They took him to the doctors.

The doctor found the thing on the hand rather strange so asked Steve and Aneta to go back and look at the site what it was from.

Steve and Aneta found nothing really so decided to return to the doctor to report only to see the blob engulfing the doctor.

Steve and Aneta run to the police station, who investigated but could not find  the ‘blob’ so they sent home Steve and Aneta for wasting police time.

The blob is growing and growing as it consumes more people.  Finally the police took action as more and more are reporting sighting.

Steve and Aneta snuck out of their house and do more investigation of their own.  They found that the blob can’t take extreme heat.

In the end, the blob was frozen and dropped into the arctic to eternal repose.  As most horror films do, the end always tantalise.  The blob is not dead, only frozen.  But what if the arctic is not frozen anymore?!!!

I thought the film was actually pretty decent.  A lovely lazy weekend viewing.  It can be a family viewing, just gauge your children’s reaction if they find the film anyway at all frightening.

I think, this film needs another viewing. Hope youtube got it.

 

Once Upon A Time – Chinese Film

Yang yang & Liu Yifei

Once Upon A Time – Chinese Film

I have just finished watching this film.  It is a Chinese movie which made used a lot of CGI, comparable to any Hollywood blockbustre.  Imaginative and colourful.

It is a beautiful fantasy romance film, made more marvelous by the presence of the super gorgeous Yang yang.  He made such a fantastic looking crown prince Black Dragon.

The story is about… what was the story again.  The film is so fast paced and the English subtitles are so minute and sometimes transparent plus the fact the there are so many beautiful things to look at, that most of the times I have lost track of the story.

Thank goodness there are flashbacks of some sort.

Warning!!! Please do not read anymore if you are not after spoilers and precis of the story!

Anyway if I get this correctly some 90,000 years ago, Bai Qian (Liu Yifei) was a goddess and a disciple of a great warrior god, Mo Yuan (Yang yang).  Mo Yuan’ was able to defeat and seal in the demon lord , but by doing so he lost his soul and life.  Bai Qian encased his body in a block of ice to prevent it from decaying as she believes that he will come to live once again.

After so many thousands of years Bai Qian had to reseal the tomb of the demon lord.  This task meant that she has to undergo some training 🙂 to become a high goddess.  The training involved going to the lower region and becoming a mortal and face several trials.

As a mortal, she became Su Su (Liu Yifei) who lived alone in the mountainside.  One day she came upon a young man who had fainted from tiredness.

He was no ordinary man, he was Ye Hua, the crown prince black dragon, who had been fighting for 7 days non-stop and had collapsed from extreme fatigue..  Su su nursed him into good health.  The grateful Ye Hua asked Su Su what she wanted as a reward.  Su su, unaware that Ye Hua was a prince, innocently blurted out that she wanted him to marry her. After a few heartbeats, the gorgeous Ye Hua agreed.

After some romantic interludes, Su su got pregnant and also found out that Ye Hua was the crown prince and an immortal.

When Su su got into the upper realm and meet all the other deities, she also met a goddess who was the intended/betrothed to Ye Hua.  This resulted in jealousy, plotting and misunderstanding.

It was against the deities’ law for one of them to marry a mortal.  Ye Hua’s ex(goddess) plotted to separate Ye Hua and Susu by all means.  She lied and blamed Su su when she intentional fell but rescued by Ye Hua.  As a punishment from trying to hurt a goddess, Su su eyes were plucked out which Ye Hua as a crown prince, agreed to. But the spiteful goddess was not finished, she led the blind Su su, who was holding on to her new baby into the ninth platform.  She then told Su su that she was useless and Ye Hua wanted to be rid of her.  At the last minute, Ye Hua appeared and hug the sad and desperate Su su.  She held her baby to Ye hua and said to call him A Li, meaning parting and then she jumped to her ‘death’,

As she was falling into her death Su su, turned into a nine-tail fox.

She comes back as immortal again but not as Bai Qian but as Si Yin (Liu Yifei) who has no memories of the past as a mortal.  She drank from the magic fountain of lost memories :).

One day, 300 years later, at the heavenly realm, she went blindfolded to a deities gathering. She met a naughty little boy who stole her metallic fan aka weapon.  She run after the boy but the father turned up.  They had a brief ninja/sword fight.  It ended when her blindfold was removed.  The boy called her ‘mom’ and the man was Ye Hua who called her Su su, his wife.  Si Yin was completely dumbfounded.  She doesn’t know them.  She doesn’t have a family.

But everywhere she turned and went , Ye Hua and A Li were there.  They both came to live with her.  To cut the story short, they decided to get married.  But before they married, the ex was into mischief again.  She told Si Yin that as Su Su, being a mortal was nothing to Ye Hua.  He was now marrying her again because she has now some use being a goddess as well.

During the wedding ceremony Si Yin walked out.

She learnt that Su su soul/memory was in suspended vessel.  She asked Ye Hua for the vessel.  After so much angst and contemplation, she was given the vessel and she got her memory.  She remembered how Ye Hua saved his ex as she plunges from the ninth platform, she remembers how the crown prince allowed her eyes to be plucked out.  She remembers how the prince was always absent from her side.  She remember that she plunged alone.

She was very sad for Su Su and for herself.  She left the heavenly palace and the prince in despair.

But Ye Hua followed her and stayed watching her as she wallowed in self pity.

But sadly Ye Hua had to leave as the demon lord had been resurrected.

Si Yin’s  lady’s maid came to find her.  She told her that her memory was one sided.  Being a mortal Su su, she did not have any right against the deities.  When she was blamed by the ex, the crown prince did not have any choice but to grant the punishment of plucking her eyes, she then remembered that the prince whispered to her that he will be her eyes from then on.  He save the ex as she was a goddess and she can really make it difficult for Su su if she is not pacified.  And when she jumped from the ninth platform the prince did try to save her but he did not have much energy as he had been blasted by thunder and lighting, which zapped his strength as punishment for marrying a mortal.

The end was that Ye Hua defeated the demon lord and he had to seal in ice.  It also sealed him in a watery frozen grave much to the distress of Si Yin.

Many years later, when the ten miles peach blossoms bloomed once again, the ice case of Yo Muan started to break.

Next scene there amongst the blowing peach blossoms, Yo Muan/Ye Hua extended his hand and said “Sin Yin, come here!”

Awww
