    lol so ErYe has the hots for FoYe
    Also, BaYe sounds so different from the drama. Is the lieutenant a drama made up character?
    but what was that part about XinYue dying, NOOOOOO
    it better not happen, it would be so cruel to us since we will probably get the wedding around ep.42 😦
    Thanks for sharing! ^^


    • Apparently. This is so cute and Er Ye’s personality is so much more interesting in the books. Too bad they don’t show that in the drama and I fear Lay doesn’t have what it takes to act it out properly..
      I dunno, I just translated those two posts xD Enlightened us, but also gave us more questions… @_@
      I know!! In the books, Xinyue is really not a main character so maybe the drama will act it out differently >< Wedding will happen for sure, but the ending is still mysterious to me.


      • maoh says:

        lets hope they leave it as it could happen in the future </3 I dont want to see it in the drama
        I do think Lay's ErYe is very different much more serious and YaTou oriented. Like he only cares about YaTou. I wonder why FoYe feels sorry to ErYe, bc his wife?


      • Me neither… Unless the death is well shot. I like well done dramatic scenes xD But whatever happens, I will be wishing for a happily ever after type of ending!
        It is not Fo Ye that is sorry, but Er Ye. I also don’t know why though, probably missing some pieces from the original novel. Maybe as a childhood friend, he knows a bit more than we do? :/


      • maoh says:

        Also sad that FY and XY didnt have any kids since he doesnt have an inheritor </333
        They really did a great job with XinYue's character for the drama since they had nothing to based it on. I guess they just came up with the type of personality that would be able to handle and match FoYe.


      • Yeah 😦 I wish we got lots of smaller XY and FY. She probably died young in the book 😦
        Exactly. It is all thanks to Zhao Liying and William Chan’s imagination! xD Everything was so nicely done and looked so real! *_*


    • Same! xD I want to see that Er Ye from the above description in live action. Especially the making cold joke part and dreaming about Fo Ye when singing opera. So cute!! But I guess it was too much to ask from Lay’s beginner acting skill? v_v

      Liked by 1 person

  2. Pooh says:

    i think they built the girls character from the girly side of EY such as XY like to call FY with QiShan as the book said it should be EY or first noddle that EY eat was made by YT not FY..so they just get the basic line (about the tomb) then recreate each character..but I love the drama version especially the OTP FY and XY..lol.


    • Yeah, it does seem like they decided to cut off the bromance and instead share those moments between the two female leads. Which is fine for me too since I love Xinyue so much, but I also feel like it is a shame we are missing out on so many cool scenes v_v


  3. Miss Attache says:

    Wait, what??? Zhang Qiling is Fo Ye’s older brother? So is he the Zhang Qiling played by Yang Yang — meaning the guy is an immortal LOL — or the grandfather (or great grandfather) of the Lost Tomb character?


    • Never realized this detail before you said so since I always knew him as Kylin xD
      I did some digging online and based on baidu, Zhang Qilin is supposed to be immortal LOL However, no idea if he is the brother from Tomb Raiders as the author didn’t finish writing. Based on guests, he is either the uncle or the brother of Fo Ye. Since Fo Ye is the last survivor and he has no child… xD This makes the novel sound even more interesting!! :O


  4. @liss@ says:

    I think the list above is written by a reader and not the actual author. In the Chinese website, many reader who read the list were doubting the credibility as well.


  5. CHOUA VANG says:

    Should have never read this…I don’t care about the novel but FY and XY will make babies in the drama! lol we really did miss the bromance, it would have been very interesting.


    • Haha, hopefully!! I wish they stay away from the novel ending since we are already so far from the story’s summary. I want some more bromance too, we missed all those cute little details ><


  6. dwi says:

    i wish they get happy ending for FY and XY.. I watching this drama because i love to see the chemistry between them..
    and i looking forward the drama recap specially when both of them appear.,i really dont like the ending between FY and XY in the novel version, i hope the drama has has different
    version its happy ending one..


  7. chxii says:

    I’m watching the TV drama but everyone’s comments make me want to read the book. 😮 But Wikipedia for Daomu makes no mention of Er Ye or Fo Ye so now I’m confused. 😦 Which book in the series focuses on their story?
