    And yknow what the say, the way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach………..

    Yanzhen is so doting 😭😭

      He then goes a step further in a future episode and says he removed the yolk for her. So she doesn’t choke. Can he get any sweeter!!

        He is the sweeeeetest! I laughed at that that one too when he removed the yolk.

      Huehehehe but he doesn’t see that! His love is too blinding. 😎😎

      He has never cared about what others think. Even here she mostly complained about what people would think about 2 boys. She never told him she didn’t like him. So he doesn’t care. He is going full on lover mode.

        See here’s the thing with Xiang Xiang, she has problems saying no to people and that’s why she’s digging her own grave further. And I can’t tell either whether she’s not fully rejecting Yanzhen because she either doesn’t know how to say no to him or perhaps she does have feelings for him that she just isn’t aware yet. But then again, she’s real with Yanzhen and has always been a natural with him.

        4
        1

          She has feelings for him of course 😉
          Except she doesn’t know how to accept his exuberant declarations of love and keep her crossdressing act. He’s already basically telling everyone she’s a girl, so I don’t blame her for getting very annoyed.

          I guess she could just say “hey Romeo, do you want to blow my cover and get me kicked out?” But then she’d have to say she likes him too *double wink*

    This was the first time I got curious of his character. The thought that he was more than just an asshat. He was smirking at her for getting caught, but he saved her and claimed that it was his. He didn’t need to do that, but he did!

    But of course it came with a price. Lol

      His confidence. In getting out of situations. And not caring about repercussions. So Gu!

        I know!!!! How easy he got away with it. He simply doesn’t care what people think, so he could own up what she’s embarrassed of! And lol Li Wenzhong was like, “what about Gu Yanzhen! He needs punishment too!” 🤣 This immature kid.

        i knew From this scene that I’d be in for some crackfest! I love it even more when Huang Song’s gullible questions, trying to make sense of the younger twin sister bs is making him crack up more! He’s not calling out her bs but just having the time of his life lol

      His face said it all: “I’m gonna get myself punished and thrown into the cold water all day so I will get sick and make her look after me like she looks after Shen Junshan. Yes, I like my idea.” *he throws an egg onto Lieutenant’s sparkly uniform*

      What he will do for love. 😂

        🤣🤣🤣 legit when Huang Song was telling the story of the student getting “bath” in that kind of weather, you could totally see his lightbulb going off 😅 You knew he was so going to get sick. Yanzhen’s grandiose display of affection is incomparable. How did male leads from other drama express their love again? 😂😂

Soooooo Xu Kai and Bai Lu are announced to lead a drama again for the third time!!!!! How do you expect me to move on from this couple when they’re always together! Oh my shipper’s heart……

But the downside is……… this is another period drama 😫😫😫😫😫 I don’t like period drama! 😭 Watch me turn into a period drama-obsessed because of these two..

        when I checked Toki’s wall yesterday,I watched AvenueX’s video which turns out to be about a XuKai’s drama
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpuDMfC0Wpk

        it’s historical “cheap and big laugh” drama according to her, some scenes shared looks so ridiculous , lame jokes right up my alley 😂
        it’s not fully subbed yet (and neither do I have time now) , so I might watch that as a Jan. 2020 drama , if I’m not busy at that time I’ll try making some gif

        look at how ridiculous it is (watch till 28min30 for a glimpse)

Xu Kai! What have you done to me! I stay away from period dramas; I have never seen a Chinese wuxia or xianxia drama before, but here I am now on Episode 11 of #TheLegends 🙈🙈🙈

Also, Bai Lu 😍 she keeps picking up these interesting roles. She’s moving up as one of my favourite actresses!

    They were the sole reason I watched and kept watching “The Legends”… I FF everything else

    3
    3

      I am trying not to ff! I really don’t understand what this drama is about but I enjoy Bai Lu as demoness who used to lead a pact, errr, sect but became powerless because Xu Kai’s character took ownership of that powerful sword. I’ll see how long I’ll last with this no-ff mindset for this drama because I’m really not interested with other sects…..

      1
      2

        I enjoyed the first half of this drama but sadly the 2nd half really dragged and don’t even get me started on the ending 😑

        But Bai Lu is one of my fav cdrama actresses. I’ve seen her in 4 things and she has done a great job in all her roles.

        2
        2

          I can’t even remember what was the turning point in the drama and at what point it became the 2nd half of it lol That’s how much of a blur this drama was overall, because I just wasn’t paying attention to anything that wasn’t about the OTP

          I love Bai Lu, she’s gives so much spunk and fun into her characters

          2

          but sadly the 2nd half really dragged and don’t even get me started on the ending 😑

          Oh no, that’s not good. I am in between watching this and rewatching Arsenal. When I’m bored watching other sects, I switch to rewatching cute scenes from Arsenal and I’m happy and alive again. 😅

          She is amazing, I can’t wait to see her other projects. Although I “may” have issues coming back to The World Owes Me a First Love, which I only saw the pilot episode before I saw Arsenal, and this is because of purely selfish reason that my shipper’s heart isn’t ready to see her without Xu Kai! 😆😆

          Speaking of shipping, MDL says Xu Kai will be working with Manting (Sorry Manting I’ll try to remember your real name!) in lots of future dramas! But they’re all period dramas, Ottoke 😭

        Yea, like, I get the overall feel of the lesson the story is trying to convey (evil isn’t always evil, good isn’t always good– things aren’t always black and white in this world), but something about the writing just didn’t translate well for me for this drama… It could be the writing of the original novel, or it could be that something went wrong during the transition and interpretation from novel-to-drama script… I say it’s the latter

          I just wished we saw her rise to power more rather than give us a summary of what went on prior to her fall. Like I wanted to see her match with that man she idolized. To her, he was everything. He was the reason why she wanted to see the world. And then their ideologies clashed which turned into animosity between them. I would have liked to see how she defeated him and how it must have felt. But nope, we never got to see any of that which was unfortunate.

          And it would have been nice as well to see her demise at a slower pace. Things were moving so fast and now it stalled on this invisible at daytime and visible at nighttime plot, which I don’t really enjoy much, ngl.

          2
          1

          I’m sure it was the drama writing. The original novel author helped with the screenplay but wrote it as a 28 episode drama. But then producers were like no no we want 40 episodes then we want 50 ep. So a bunch of filler was added. The ending ended up being a happy ending but the editing was so SO incredibly badly done that I would have preferred a traffic ending that was atleast well done.

          Here is a YT video here that explains it:

            Thanks for sharing trinpie. I’m still in the early parts of the show, So I’m not seeing the frustrations yet, but that is very unfortunate. Extensions tend to hurt the storytelling of the show. That’s sad that the production team chose money over quality.

        I’m on ep 17 now and I’m really close to ff scenes they aren’t in. To stop me from ff, when things in The Legends get boring, I go back to Arsenal to get my Xiang Xiang and Yanzhen fix and I’m happy again ☺️. Then I go back to watching the boring scenes in The Legends.

      Ahhh! I discovered them through an Arsenal MV! https://youtu.be/3SSneyKcsbk I contemplated a lot whether to check it out or not because MDL says it’s not heavy on the romance, and I am a hopeless romantic. Glad I saw Arsenal, or I wouldn’t have discovered these beauties. I can’t get over them now….

        What?! You discovered through a MV?! That’s so awesome!😂

I just finished #ArsenalMilitaryAcademy and it was so good.

Gu Yanzhen – such a great character to watch from beginning to end. From a privileged a.hole son of a government official to a responsible cadet who looked after his fellow mates. His environment forced him to grow up, mature into a person he became of by the end of the series.

Xie Xiang – what an amazing woman through and through. Such a capable woman. No wonder Yanzhen is head over heels for her. I am too.

The camaraderie that formed at the academy. I loved it. So much. Most of them were from well-off family, so they were pretty much cocky, immature, and hating on each other at the beginning. They’ve got their own group they hang, but overtime, they had become one team fighting with one goal in mind. I am so proud of them. All of them. I will miss you all. 😢❤️

Here is one of the great OSTs of the show, sang by Bai Lu and Xu Kai. I love this song so much. It speaks volume of their relationship.

    While you are still under Xu Kai and Bai Lu’s spell, go watch The Legends. It may be your initiation to xianxia(fantasy)!

      Yay another Arsenal fan!! Or should I say YanXiang fang 😬😬 I love them so much, I miss them and I keep rewatching their scenes. Going through a major withdrawal right now.

      I watched this on my phone cuz of iQiYi app, but since this is now on Viki, I can finally ogle at Yanzhen on a bigger screen! 😳😳

      And yes the sang that OST! It’s far fetched hope, but maybe they’ll get to sing this live in front of an audience??

        Yep, totally a fan of them. 😁
        That’s probably going to happen to me once the show is over!😣

I am devastated that the director cut what might have been a beautiful scene. I didn’t get to see what led to this, but omg look at their hands intertwined in front of everyone. I am weeping for joy #ArsenalMilitaryAcademy

They look so natural. I cannot 😭😭😭😭😭

My heart is so full. Even if I’m bitter that I didn’t get to see details, but I’m so happy for them 😭 But show, if you’re gonna give me more goodies, I’ll take them. Only positive moments okay. I don’t want my eyes welling up anymore…..

      Yep that’s all I saw the entire dining scene, them holding hands. I was saying I didn’t get to see them officially go out. We didn’t see Xiang Xiang tell him how she felt about him. We just cut to the part that they’re already together. I’m pretty sure that YT link you shared where Yanzhen kissed her on the head might be that missing piece here.

      I loved this scene so much!! It made me wish there was an alternate universe where there is no Chinese-Japanese strife, no deaths, no heartbreaks, and Xiang Xiang and Yanzhen are happily staying in town flirting with each other all day. This moment was brief, but it was such a heartwarming scene. Xiang Xiang, Yanzhen and her family having quality time at home like any ordinary household.

Awwww she’s smiling at his jokes now 🥰🥰 #ArsenalMilitaryAcademy

Yanzhen cried in relief to see her safe 😢 He’s so pure; I love him too much 😭😭

But the girl you fell in love with is no damsel in distress. She can save her own skin just fine, so fret not, Yanzhen!

      Yes! Episode 41, where he starved himself, did not take a rest looking for her all over the town. Cue OST they sang together and I’m left bawling.

          Why, was he bad before? Lol this is my first drama with him; I’m hopelessly in love with him. He’s so great. Yanzhen is such a great role for him and he’s able to flesh him out every time he’s on screen.

          I want to see them in another drama together! I know there is The Legend, but I don’t think I’ll watch that…. hmmm *maybe I will cuz I’m obsessed with them right now* anyways I need moooooooooar!

            The Legends is definitely much heavier romance. Has a pretty hot kiss scene in it 😏 Xu Kai is an adorable puppy in it.

        I speed watched weeks ago, missed a huge chunk of it.

        I really love this couple but I was watching The Untamed and it took up all my attention. Xu Kai is such a cute and good looking rascal in this show.

          Awww E! This drama is sooo good. It’s slow burn and very yknow, patriotic and political, but I love it. It doesn’t help that heroine is sooo great in this. I don’t even mind that Gu Yanzhen’s love is unrequited for the most part of the show because errr, it’s not exactly the era to fall in love ngl.

          There was this scene I particularly loved. This was around the time Junshan figured out her real identity and fell for her. Xiang Xiang and Yanzhen run into Junshan and Junshan tells her to button up her shirt. Yanzhen scowls and lashes at him saying “don’t do that!”. He doesn’t see Xiang Xiang as a vulnerable woman, needing to dictate what she can and cannot do, how she wants to wear her clothing and whatnot, and I love him for that. ❤️❤️

      Huehehhe but this time she doesn’t return his stare, my heart actually hurts seeing these. Didn’t like the amnesia plot but that feeling of longing for her that he can’t explain……

        This whole episode hurt, everytime she said he isn’t Haru my heart broke for him a little more, it was sad!

        4
        1

          It was so sad! I felt terrible watching her struggle with (1) losing a close friend (and potential boyfriend), (2) the knowledge that she might have been the reason Haru disappeared, and (3) keeping a distance from him because she didn’t want to cause his disappearance. It sort of made the amnesia plot horrible. However, I forgive the (drama) writer because it was a great way to introduce Baek-kyung’s awareness and give us a sense of his feelings for Dan-oh; it gave us a bit more information about the weird merging/melding/colliding manhwas plot in the background; provided further evidence that Dan-oh might really be able to change the plot**; gave us an opportunity to see how important Haru had become in Dan-oh’s life, as well as potentially advance the romantic aspect of their relationship (at least that’s what I drew out of the last scene in ep 8); and it gave the characters opportunities to explore some of the broader existential themes which have been bubbling in the background (like, for instance, the difficulty in carving out a ‘self’ when one lives in a fiction world full of 2-dimensional people and when one’s own personality and memories are fabricated).

          ** Or maybe she isn’t changing the plot? Maybe the weird plot changes are still preordained, just not in the manhwa she’s from (“Secret”, I think it’s called). Based on the fact that lots of Dan-oh’s scenes (e.g. her words at the dinner party with Baek-kyung) and Haru’s scenes (e.g. when he told Dried Squid – who, btw, is totally a villain – a few episodes ago that he will change Dan-oh’s fate, regardless of the personal cost) seem to emulate scenes from “Trumpet Creeper”, it might be that the divergences in “Secret” are scenes that have been transplanted from “Trumpet Creeper”.

          2
          1

            I think this was one of the few instances where I actually thought the amnesia trope was accepted and really well done! Like you said it showed us and explored a lot of Dan-oh’s struggles, the consequences of trying to change the story and messing up with the plot, the stakes! Dan-oh’s sadness was so palpable, and her fear all the more justified, she couldn’t bring herself to get closer to him again knowing what was going to happen, seeing her lose hope was heartbreaking, really!

            It’s kind of scary when you think about it, they’re from a different Manhwa who somehow found their way here, and although they think they’re changing the storyboard, it’s actually being carried out the same one way or another, also the “changes” aren’t exactly changes when they’ve happened before, Trumpet creeper is now integrated in Secret, which means whatever caused Haru to run away from or travel to this new world is actually going to happen here! It’s again pre-determined!

Why is he like this! 😂😂 #ArsenalMilitaryAcademy

Gu Yanzhen, I haven’t been productive with my plan to get through most of the episodes tonight because of you. You just won’t let me move on. I mean, like, what is this again? 😂😂

But I’m not complaining. And why does Xiang Xiang not like you? 😭💔 You’re adorably annoying af.

      Nobody from the military even finds this scene weird. It’s just one of those days for them. They know Gu Yanzhen so well and his quirks.

        They fight and argue with each other so often so I guess everyone else thinks it’s one of his “tactics” to spite/ rile up Xiang Xiang😂😂😂

          🤣🤣🤣 And he wonders why she doesn’t love him!!!

          I know I gush over Yanzhen so much, but I love Xiang Xiang too. She’s not fazed by anything, and she is one capable cadet! She strives hard to be on equal footing with these guys. No wonder Yanzhen is head over heals.

          4
          1

            I would be too! She has one goal in mind and no man’s going to stop her from it. But I would make an exception for Yanzhen if I were in her shoes… *fans self*😍

      Yay Beverly! You are watching😍 not sure where you are currently watching this, but Viki just started putting this up on their page! I’m glad to know I can rewatch and see their faces better on my laptop now.

      Anyways are you referring to Junshan’s crime? These kids are very patriotic. I was uncomfortable at first as this isn’t my kind of genre (romcom all the way!), but now I’m with them! Their passion to get their own country and freedom back is very gripping.

      Anyways here are some spazzing we’ve doing on chasingbears’s page up until ep 8! If you would like to join 😬😬http://www.dramabeans.com/members/chasingbears/activity/907090/

          What a manchild this person I’m drooling over! 🤣🤣🤣 But at that same time, what a reliable and supporting comrade and friend when needed to ❤️ It’s in his nature, really. He goes out his way to help, (Huang Song and how he trapped himself in his mess 😢) will use all means, even drop his influential name to help.

          How to stop myself from loving him too much…..

Throwback to that first time I fell for Lee Do Hwa Jung Gun Joo. He starred in one of my favourite web dramas, #W.H.Y, which I wrote about here http://www.dramabeans.com/2019/04/short-but-sweet-a-web-drama-appreciation-post/

Anyways, here is W.H.Y’s OST. It’s so catchy and is one of my favourites too! He’s a beautiful man. #ExtraordinaryYou

      He totally came out of nowhere! 😂 What’s up with that. The extras here are ridiculously good looking. If there’s one thing the writer is doing right, it’s creating hottie babes. 👍🏼

      1

        I have a theory but it’s probably crazy… they did warn us the genre could change any second right? And to not expect answers? So we can make up our own. 🤪

        So, here goes: I’m starting to think Junior is Haru’s recycled character from another manhwa. Both are nameless extras. Haru has the same quiet style, same wistful protectiveness towards Kyung, and interestingly, Junior appeared randomly at Nam Joo’s party standing in what seemed like the same spot as Haru, looking equally stricken at his hyung’s announcement. So I’m suggesting Haru and Kyung are half bros.
        🤣

        (I told you it was a crazy theory).

          WishfulToki, as Fairy disclaimed at the beginning of the show, everything is possible in the manhwa world, so your theory may not be too far off! 😆😆 and we welcome all sorts of them!

    On the flip side, A3 doesn’t seem to matter to Kyung and Do Hwa is not really friends with them either. It’s only important for Nam Joo and the manhwa writer.
