"nice episode with a little flaw"

another one of great episode with an overflowing chemistry from our main character here. This is a funny and serious episode. really love ahn min hyuk and do bong soon here. they're a great pair. the only flaw that i got in this episode is that why the killer did not shoot right at bongsoon's head if his intention was to kill her. i mean, he had a big professional gun that read more can target someone from a very far distance. it just didn't seem real for me. but despite that, i still like this episode.

"Well that as dull."

Well that as dull. Truly I miss the fun and whimsical feel of the romance. Now it's just descended into the normal dramaland, er, drama. Very typical and annoying. After all the guy once again does what he think is best for the female lead. Choosing the meanest and harshest way to do it. Instead of being truthful and letting her decide and being an equal.

Truly a shame. Not to mention read more it feels rushed and a 180 for the romance and development of the story. With 1 episode left guess that's the only way to do it.

On that note I love how supportive her family is. Especially Asuka's little brother. He's been so sweet this episode.

"ep 24 spoilers ahead"

1.So the starlords learn that the amulet has been rejoined. They also reveal that if the goddess does not appear than winkind is in danger...

2.Yu learns from the starlords that the goddess need to awaken. They tell him she won't die (i think this is a lie) when she brings the pollen

3.Tianjun has sort of gone crazy (he uses the guy who betrayed him to Tianyi earlier in the season read more to suppress a coup and take back his throne......looks like war is on the way. Essentially he is going to force this love, and seems to think that if he doesn't have pain and hate he can't have love...(based on the words of that celestial gate guardian guy)

4.Turns out the starlords were telling some lies. Tianyi overhears them talking--when she finds her lover she turns to ash...on their wedding day Tianyi is nowhere to be found...

"ep 23 spoilers ahead"

1.So the moment the emperor gets wings, she is healed. She has to go see him! Yu asks her if she could abandon Tianjun, and she apologizes and says she doesn't want to but there is a mysterious force calling her...She HAS to find Tianyi, she says (and Tianjun hears all of this)

2.Tianyi senses Tianjun is in danger, saves her, they have an argument over the 'princess' issue. He tells her read more it was never him who slept with her but the guard. They make up, Tianyi is going to be officially crowned emperor, looks like she will be his queen...

3.Meanwhile Tianjun continues to suffer pain, is now scarred, and then he meets with that creepy old gate guardian guy who seems to like stoking negative feelings in others and seems to be encouraging him to seek revenge (also, he doesn't seem to have known his mother died...)

"ep 22 spoilers ahead"

1.Ling'er admits to Tianjun that her heart belongs to Tianyi and that she cannot return his feelings. Essentially we learn that he has an eroding bone nail in him (that was what Jishu placed in him to make him feel unbearable pain when he has strong feelings for Ling'er) Yu tells Tianjun to stay away from Ling'er because since he cannot control his feelings it will kill him

2.Yu tells Tianjun a read more cautionary tale--that even though he supports their love (he hates Tianyi) he nevertheless doesn't believe Tianjun can make her return his feelings. Forced love is wrong (recall, his sister suffered because of this--she was a victim of someone forcing their love on her and also tried to force her love on another)

3.The regent essentially accepts that Ling'er and Tianyi are soulmates and pities him because he has a difficult to choice to make--he could lose his throne or lose his lover (i.e. throne probs via war, lover if he uses her goddess powers? i think i am not sure about this)

4.Meanwhile Yu is trying to help Tianjun move the bone nail...Tianjun confesses to Yu that he is willing to chance death if he can't love Ling'er...

5.After it is removed Yu tells Tianjun that the instructions say he cannot get up for 3 hrs and no one will know what happens if he does get up...so of course the regent shows up to take Ling'er. And Tianjun gets up. Tianjun falls over, drops the 'yang' amulet and it shows that Tianyi is the true love (i.e.he awakens)

6.Tianjun tries to kill Tianyi but Ling'er blocks him....(recall, Jushu said that he will only have a chance if he kills the fated lover...) Tianjun says why would she do that, since he is her doom, and she says that even if he is her doom she loves him

7.Yu and Tianjun escape with Ling'er; the regent can't pursue him because Tianyi is incapacitated....General takes him back and Tianyi's body is on fire, it's so hot and he keeps yelling random things...

8.Ling'er is not doing too well either. I do pity the prince because he rejected her because it hurt him to be near her (because of the bone nail) now the wingpeople officials are discussing overthrowing the emperor because he can't grow wings? turns out he can! the emperor has golden wings!

*at this point this drama has gone from predictable to making not a lot of sense. i am just enjoying the ride!

"ep 20 spoilers ahead"

1.Ling'er comes back and begs that Yu be released. Tianyi has her arrested and orders that whatever punishment Yu receive, she receive. He also says he doesn't have to have a reason for arresting somebody because he is the emperor.

2.This stubborn idiot basically asks to be tied up beside Yu. Meanwhile the regent (rightfully) surmises that both these people are stupid and temperamental. He wonders if he should help Emperor or read more not. This may be something Tianyi needs to do on his own. Or perhaps the regent is concerned that love will ruin his life the way it ruined his?

3.It seems the empeor may have aided and abet in their escape and Tianyi wonders out loud how two people evaded the emperor (basically saying he know what he helped them) They go to Yu's home. Yu insists the emperor must care about her because he let her escape.

4.Ling'er returns...to see princess. Princess tells her that Tianyi took her chastity (lie). Now Ling'er decides to break up with Tianyi and returns his necklace and leaves him

5.Ling'er returns to Yu, asks to be home, and breaks down in tears and ask chisu (i guess not dead) what should she do?

6.Tianjun is clinging to life somewhere, staring at the yang amulet, and he is thinking about how it is used to kill the flower deity...

7.the lonely Tianyi now believes that maybe Ling'er was a test. The regent says that at least his throne is safe. Tianyi visits princess who performs a dance, and collapses in his arm, sobbing about how pitiful it is that she is going to die and Tianyi holds her, crying. (does anyone not die in this show?)

3.Tianjun runs off with her...thinking she is there for him but really she is there read more to kill him. She plunges the dagger he gave her into his stomach

4.For reasons unknown, Tianyi doesn;'t know that she stabbed him. He insists she must have Tianjun in her heart, (also, he killed Chisu...) and then goes to see princess who is dying (out of guilt and their being friends he is trying to help her I mean he knew that his friend raped her)

5.Because she won't eat, Tianyi decides it would be a good idea to force feed her with his mouth. Unfortunately, guess who walks in??? Yes, that would be Ling'er...

6.Ling'er (for reasons unknown) discovers Yu, and after expressing concern over his hands, he tells her the truth about this death machine and that Tianjun did not kill her father...leading her to chase after Tianjun (nevermind that Yu is being tortured)

4.Regent goes to where the blood flower is...now her hair has color/is black...she tries to seduce him//he is immune to it. We get a flashback and learn that this woman was once the guardian of the celestial doors but had her heart broken and fell into darkness. she now maintains never ending beauty by granting the wishes of disheartened women. He kills her....

"ep 17 spoilers"

1.While Tianyi is back to impressing and seducing Ling'er princess plots revenge. Tianyi takes Ling'er up in the air, and she is amazed. Tianyi and Ling'er share a dramatic kiss in the sky. It seems this curse will turn her into a living corpse
2.Regent and emperor have an honest talk. The regent shares that he believes that Ling'er is connected to the goddess of shooting stars.

"ep 16 spoilers ahead"

1.The princess is able to drive this guard off by threatening to kill herself. She then tries to make herself clean but is naturally upset (she was raped!) and feels like she has nothing, not even the dignity of a woman.

2.Meanwhile, for reasons never explained, Ling'er knows that if she burns the regents zither it will sever his connection to his wife and keep him in this world (kind of selfish) read more but it works

3.Back to Yu, who uses a map left by Jishu who has since left to unlock Jishu's hidden chamber of goodies. there is also something there pertaining to Ling'er that 'must never be opened'

4.It seems this is Jishu's will. he shows up, fights the empress, they stab each other in the heart and die side by side, talking about old times long since past, as the sky city she worked on is destroyed

5. (now its getting weird) princess uses her blood to summon 'blood flower' a demon that doesn't seem to be male or female. the target of hate seems to be Ling'er, because she has everything (the emperor...respect...virginity) while she has nothing at all (and she once thought she had it all). princess says she is willing to die for this revenge.

"ep 15 spoilers ahead"

1.The regent meets with princess's brother and tells him that the signal will be 'throwing his wine'

2.Princess is dressed and ready to get married....(what follows is the biggest bit of nonsense and I am not sure if I like it yet)

3.The regent in front of everyone announces that he is going to take the role of king. The Xu brother then proudly announces that he killed the late emperor---our Ling'er read more surprises the regent and stabs him in the back. While the regent is bleeding out Xu summons his soldiers, and fights with the emperor--then the regent kills Xu. Then we learn that the regent is actually been dirtying his hands, taking down all the opposition to the crown. he tricked the emperor in order to trick his enemies, and made himself out to be a bad guy. He did this because the xu family is very powerful. (this is like a triple quadruple betrayal--Ling'er betrays the emperor, then she betrays the regent, then Xu betrays everyone, then the regent betrays Xu.....)

4.Now both Ling'er and Emperor are sad...

5. (this is really twisted) so princess of the xu (the one in love with the emperor/supposed to wed him) is sobbing in her room. in shock. not knowing what to do. she's lost everything. one of the emperor's guards (he is the best looking guard/can't remember his name) arrives and asks if she wants to escape with him...the princess stares at him and then there is a flashback....apparently once she tried to seduce the emperor but he left....she inhaled a white mist and turns around and he is back...they hook up. but wait! it's actually this guard. this is def. date rape. the emperor found out but because of his loyalty kept it a secret....(might explain why she is so in love with him)

6.unsurprisingly, the princess has a bad reaction to this realization

2.Ling'er sneaks out to warn Tianyi who is visibly depressed and apathetic. He basically tells her to go away and that they have nothing to do with each other (are they in cahoots and this is some play they are acting out to gain the trust of the regent? are they that smart? i hope read more so)

"ep 13 review spooilers ahead"

1.So servant girl explains to Tianjun that the red flower on her back is an ill omen, a flower of the underworld, that kills normal people. But he is protected as the lover of the flower deity (i sense a mistake) It seems the yang amulet was embedded in her. She tells him that if he kills her then he can have the amulet. She says that if she dies, the deity read more dies, if the deity lives, then she dies. For her love, and desire to see him happy, she jumps to her death....

2.Members of the star court show up to kill Tianjun, but he escapes....

3.It seems Ling'er is pretending to like the regent in order to help Tianyi. Tiany doesn't know (well, the old saying that if you want to fool your enemy you have to start with your friends...) meanwhile Tianyi is taking solace in the arms of his harem, and continues to rebuff the advances of the princess..

3.Back to Yu and Jishu...Yu is just too funny...Jishu tells him of his love with Riozui and Yu says 'not only are you a master of puzzles but a master of love' (enough said) and then toasts him

4.The regent continues to humiliate Tianyi who shows himself as a fool in love, and he plots--Ling'er overhears him planning to attack on the day of the wedding...

3.Ling'er wants to help despite Tianyi telling her to, well, f*** off, and she returns to her room to see the strange guy from earlier there with a zither. he claims to be the palace musician read more and plays a song. because of her improved hearing she can hear the players pain in the music and starts talking about love, loss, and heartache involving a woman...he gives her some cryptic advice about a birthday and making requests...

4.the princess (she is getting on my nerves) is concerned about getting rid of Ling'er, whom she perceives as a threat (honestly, with all this going on you would think she would take the time to focus on consolidating the emperor's power)

5.Tianjun practices martial arts...


6.Ling'er changes into the pretty dress (see the poster, it's that one) and says she will play the zither for the regent

7.A maid of the princess steps on the train of her dress as guards take her away, on Tianyi's order. She trips...the zither snaps int 2, and the regent (whom I guess Ling'er knew as the stranger) loses it and proceeds to try to kill her. He nearly suceeds but stops when he sees the mark of the godess..s

8.The emperor takes her away, intimating she will be the next mistress of his home, and then it looks like he is going to rape her. Then he tells her that she could never move his heart and can't even compare to 'her' before striding away.

9.An extremely angry Tianyi incapacitates guards, busts into the room, uses his whip to reel her in, and forces a bunch of kisses on her (....has the yank awakened?) Looks like! he angrily announces his love confession and claims ownership (literally). At first she is upset but this announcement seems swayed by this confession (It seems Tianjun's worst nightmare has come true....) but then she rejects him to be with the regent? (seems like this is actually not the real her...)

10.Meanwhile Tianjun and servant girl climb a mountain, and she is about to show him her mark....
