    How would you rate this show? Ariel Lin is one of my favorite Taiwanese actress, but not sure how good the writing for this show is.

      It’s a fun watch 🙂 The chemistry between Ariel Lin and Vin Zhang is <3 <3 <3 There isn't much thinking and brain power needed when watching this drama, despite it being a historical genre, because there's really not much politics and the writing is actually really simple and easy to follow– it's more of a fantasy wuxia than it is a historical wuxia drama 🙂 I hope this helps your decision a little bit!!

Song is stuck in my head XD The ending song for Cdrama “The Flame’s Daughter”– I’ve been humming it literally first thing in the morning this whole week lol No English subs, sorry!!!
I liked Dilraba’s singing better for the OSTs she did for “Pretty Li Hui Zhen” (a.k.a. the Chinese version of Kdrama “She Was Pretty”)—her singing here is a little too thick for me here (if that even makes sense— but I can hear that her pronunciation and enunciation is way better here.

As for the synopsis of ‘The Flame’s Daughter”, has anyone watched “The Journey Of Flower” ? Yea, the synopsis is basically that drama but in reverse (just like how many people say “Moana” is “The Little Mermaid” in reverse) but with a birth secret in the middle that actually helps to answer a lot of questions and character motives within the plot XD Didn’t love it, but liked it enough to sit through all 51 episodes with a little bit of fast-forwarding through the politics

    Awwwwww~ i absolutely adored them in marriage contract. The relationships in that drama felt organic, and LSJ’s character went from manchild to an actual man as the series progressed. Yay for character development!

JAMES LEE!!! Doing a YouTube collab!!!!

Anyone know what happened to her baby’s (Royce) daddy, Jeremy? I’m iffy to call him her husband anymore because they seemed to have separated and he hasn’t made appearances in her YouTube stuff in a long time… As a matter of fact, what used to be named the “KirJer” YouTube Channel is now simply Kirstin Leigh and all the old KirJer stuff has been taken down 🤷🏻‍♀️

    i was thinking the same! she’s constantly around mikebow now? but apparently according to some youtube comments, on her ig live she mentioned that they divorced? neither royce nor her ig account follows him anymore so… & their wedding photos website domain expired/ they removed it… : (

      Yea, sad T……T
      Oh, she’s constantly around many other male Youtubers (the Asian Youtubers community is STRONG), but Mike Bow just might be the one she’s constantly around because they’re based in the same city??? I dunno lol She’s recently been hanging out with the WongFu guys a lot too 🙂 She’s been helping them promote BoPoMoFo quite a bit 😀 MmmmmmMmmmmmm bubble tea

Oh my dear, I just might need to start this drama JUST for this scene… The fact that it’ll be my 4th/5th Vin Zhang Bin Bin drama to watch helps, too— I mean 🤷🏻‍♀️ Zhang Bin Bin… Zhang Bin Bin & kids— MY HEART ♥️

Yes, I am well aware that this drama doesn’t end well (but it’s historically accurate that way: Historically, the child wasn’t his, and Qin Shi Wang historically never named an official Empress) so I’m setting myself up for heartbreak— but…. but VIN ZHANG BIN BIN WITH DILRABA IN ANOTHER DRAMA…. VIN ZHANG BIN BIN WITH KIDS!!!!!!!!!

Waking up in the morning
Waking up in the morning and having the confidence to live
Walking up in the morning with full knowledge that there is a bigger Power, a bigger Being, a Creator—a God— who loves you and will love you even when no one else will
Waking up in the morning knowing that there’s a new and full day ahead where mercies and grace are made new
The smell of coffee ☕️
Sunny side up eggs 🍳
The quietness of an afternoon with a good book in hand
The sound of children laughing
The sounds of your phone going off when a message comes in which makes your heart skip a beat… Who could it be??
The smell of the crisp winter air
The ability to take each and ever breath in on your own and to smell the many different smells of the world
The sunshine
The illuminating light of the moon
The blinding white snow that’s already fallen on the ground
The many different colours of the world uncovered and unseen
The feel of my bed that comforts me at night and makes me want to stay in it for “just 5 more minutes” every morning
Freshly washed, and ever so warm, clothes straight from the dryer
A warm hug
A peck on the cheek
A sweet kiss of the lips
A caress of the forehead
The warm hands of a lover, friend, family member
“Just because…” gifts
Long, deep conversations
Easy conversations
Inside jokes
Friendships and relationships that don’t need any explanations between each other
Silent conversations with those who “get you” and where words aren’t needed
Finishing each other’s sentences
Finding everything there is in the world to do with your special someone, but at the same time, doing nothing at all and finding the beauty simply being in each other’s presence
A letter or note from a loved one
Words
A good book
A good drama
A character you relate to
A character you sympathize and/or empathize with
A character that’s fun to hate
The beauty of winter
The lightness of spring
The greenness of summer
The falling leaves of autumn
The crashing sounds of the waves by the ocean
The intense blowing of the wind upon a mountain top
The crackling of the fire on a pit
The gritty sounds of the soil and rocks when stepped on
Cries of sorrow
Cries of rejoicing
Songs of praise
Words of encouragement, hope, and wisdom

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
– 1 Corinthians 13:13

Love,
February 💕 (14. 02. 2019)

    I love the juxtaposition of these two lines — each SO poetic:

    “The blinding white snow that’s already fallen on the ground
    The many different colours of the world uncovered and unseen”

    the snow covering things vs. the colors when uncovered — and then the “unseen.” a gentle reminder of all that’s bright even when it’s unseen. lovely. (also FRESH SNOW lovelovelove).

      My inspiration were the 5 senses: Touch, smell, sound, sight, taste— thinking about the beautiful things that I experience every day and would like to experience, especially with loved ones

        A creepy face with butterflies on it. At first I thought it was on a tie the way his clothes were hanging, but then realized it was on his shirt.

I think this is a noona romance that I can get behind 🙂 Although, there really isn\’t any point in labelling noona romances as noona romances anymore since they\’re just as common as an oppa romance nowadays

When this song pops up during “Shuffle” and the emotions of the song & lyrics– the reason behind JaeJoong’s writing of this song & who it’s dedicated to– hits me like a ton of bricks T………T

    what is the reason for writing the song and who is it dedicated to?

      Jaejoon wrote it as a ‘last goodbye’ to good friend and actor Park Yong Ha who committed suicide… JaeJoong was actually one of the last people who was in contact with Park Yong Ha before he took his own life, but JaeJoong felt that he never was able to give his friend a proper goodbye before everything happened
