These boys have started to move on but I have not. 😂

It’s been a while since I checked Dramabeans. Other aspects of my life have taken priority over fangirling. I even had to put watching Extraordinary You and Tale of Nokdu on hold. I spend whatever time I can spare reading Mo Xiang Tong Xiu’s Heaven Official’s Blessings (Tian Guan Ci Fu) and scrolling Twitter for MXTX content. 😅 I’m so excited for them to cast and start shooting the drama based on the novel. I hope, fingers crossed, they do as good or even better job on HOB/TGCF. For now, I’ll keep reading the novel while waiting for the drama as well as Xiao Zhan’s and Wang Yi Bo’s new dramas. 📕

    They are so adorable in those gifs! 😆

    I made a whole post about HOB here: http://www.dramabeans.com/members/trinpie/activity/914150/

    My current obsession. I just finished the novel yesterday and loved it. I think it’s even better then The Untamed novel. I canceled going to my moms to binge watch dramas for the weekend to instead spend the whole 3 days off just reading instead.

    I also really really hope they can do a good job adapting to the drama and can find some actors to perfectly fit the roles.

    I was actually thinking of what actors would work for the roles and couldn’t think of anyone. Who do you think would work for the roles?

      I am also blissfully down the rabbit hole of HOB for the past few weeks! I am about half way through this wonderfully fantastical but also painful tale. 😭😂😂

      I thought Dylan Wang would make a good charismatic and mischievous HC, and Joseph Zheng has such delicately feminine features to be convincing as XL. They are both extremely tall with DiDi just a 3-4 cm taller than Joseph, but if they can make LZ look taller than XZ, it should not be too big of a problem for this pairing.

        Oh! Dylan Wang! I only saw him in Meteor Garden but he did a good job in that. At first I was like ‘he is too young’ but then remembered that HC only looks to be about 18 years old. I actually can totally imagine him as HC. I think it’s because his character is bigger then life I forget he still looks like a teenager 😆

        I haven’t seen Joseph Zheng in anything before, but looking at pictures I can easily imagine him as XL. Definitely has the looks of what I imagine XL to look like.

        I can’t believe I have to wait 1-2 years before the drama will be released 😣

        I just now downloaded and emailed MXTX’s first novel The Scum Villain to my kindle. So that will be my next read! Pretty sure MXTX is my new favorite author lol

          Hoho… Scum Villain is good as a fluff fantasy BL, but I got a bit of whiplash after finishing the other 2 very heavy books (and tbh, I’m not as enamored with the romantic pairing here). It’s kinda messing with my brain though, to read Scum Villain while watching Extraordinary You at the same time since both deal with changing fate in an alternate world.

      I haven’t dream casted this yet. Maybe when I finish the novel. I have no objections to @kimbapnoona‘s casting though. My brain just goes: “Please make it work, if not better than The Untamed, then just as good.” when I think about the drama adaptation. 🤞🙏

        Same! I think the Untamed did an excellent job of adapting to the drama while avoiding the numerous censor issues and still keeping pretty true to the novel. And the casting I think was perfect.

        I just hope and pray HOB drama will be able to do that same

Kim Hye-Yoon is a very effective actress. The story is quite interesting and makes for a fun watch. I can’t wait for the next episodes!

So far, so good. 😍 #TaleofNokdu
I’ve been very comfortably stuck at the Burial Mounds for months now. But I’m hoping to finish some other dramas before the year ends. I hope this one stays on my Watch List.

Out of all the songs I have heard him sing, this is my favorite! Probably because I first met him as the “wild child”, Wei Wu Xian. Happy Birthday, Xiao Zhan! Here’s to your blossoming career! 🎂🥂

Lan Xi Chen deserves an appreciation post for being a WangXian supporter even before the boys figured out their feelings for each other. Xièxie, Lan dàgē! ❤️🌈

    The Lan brothers both have the purest and the gentlest of hearts.
    Lan Wang Ji always has faith in Wei Wu Xian, even when he chooses the wrong path.
    Lan Xi Chen always gives Jin Guang Yao the benefit of the doubt even when it is undeserved.

    Lang Wang Ji had the upmost respect for Lang Xi Chen. He even calls him older brother in the most respectful way in the drama.

    Lang Xi Chen knows Lang Wang Ji best. Thanks to him, we get the reveal of their childhood and the reason for Lang Zhan’s scars in the drama. This lead to the beautiful Thank you and I’m sorry scene in episode 43. ♥️♥️♥️

    Gege was the only one who could read Lan Wangji’s mind. No one else could understand that inscrutable face.

    In those lonely years growing up and the 13 yrs during which WWX disappeared, I think Lan Xi Chen was the only one who knew what his younger brother was going through.

#BeMelodramatic #MeloSuitsMe does not let up. I loved the penultimate episode so much that I only have high expectations for the final episode. Here’s looking at you, show! 💗

Lan Zhan is a man of few words and expressions. Despite that, there is no question he is in love with Wei Ying. In their relationship, Wei Ying does all the talking. I still want to see a faithful adaptation of the Guanyin Temple arc/scene someday. 😂 That’s why I’m really grateful for this moment in the drama. This is as close as we can get to a verbal declaration of love from Lan Zhan.

I love the drama because even though it didn’t fully dive into BL and some changes were made, I feel like the characters, story and dialogue stayed true to the novel. I’m not sure if a faithful drama adaptation would work but #TheUntamed is a very worthy adaptation.

    I think it’s more than worthy. While the novel and anime had more stories and ‘action’, the actors brought this character to life. If I were a fan of MDZS, I would love it.

    Such an amazing and touching moment……still brings me so much feels no matter how many times I watch the scene….

    You know that the drama is doing something right when all the loyal fans of the novel are satisfied of how their relationship is portrayed in The Untamed!

    His love for WX is so so so strong.. simmering since he was 15 yrs right.. because LZ realized his feelings fairly early on and made peace with the fact that he was in love

    oh!.. and you should totally listen to temple confession scene from the audio drama..

    it is fantastic..w ith the noise of rain and all in the background

    This has always been one of my favorite scenes. LZ is willing to give up his reputation and become an outcast for WWX. Which is a big deal as he had always been proud of being the upright one. Even when WWX is trying to protect him by saying he knew nothing, LZ doesn’t hesitate by saying he knew he was WWX and stands with him against all the clans. ❤️

Photos from the rehearsals of #TheUntamed fanmeeting that’s currently happening in Bangkok, Thailand! How I wish they streamed it and Whatever Beanies could Kast with @kimbapnoona live-subbing the event! *sigh*

    I would have been so happy to be of service, although I probably would not have been very useful since it would be hard to hear what they are saying through all that SCREAMING!!! Mine included 🤣🤣🤣

    So sad that the organizer decided not to stream the event for all of us international fans, but so glad that the show is receiving so much love!! Thai fans, we love you!!

    He is never ever gonna let that hand go…..
    Best wrist grab ever!!! 🤣

      I hate wrist/arm grabs, but I totally love the wrist grabs in this drama 😍

        I wonder if it is because in addition to how it is fitting and deeply moving to the context of the story, the fact that in this drama we have two male leads and that greatly diminishes the gender power imbalance that is often a trigger for women viewers like me.

        6
        2

          That’s exactly it for me. When a guy does it to a woman it’s typically a very dominate and possessive move. I got pissed in Hotel Del Luna where you have this super powerful woman and her wrist is still getting grabbed by the man.

          But when the gender norms are twisted like in this drama then I find it sexy (or in this scene it was beautiful).

          But but.. Wangji is gentle.. he would never hurt.. lets call it ‘wrist embrace’ and not grab please.

            He can be rough when he want to be. WWX would attest to this, not that he minds. 😉🤭
