Okay, so the production is really moving along and the cast seems to be getting along quite well as of recent updates. (It’s not like they’re going to post disagreements on there and feed the paparazzi some more, lol, but yeah…it has been enjoyable to follow them–before I had to go back to school work like insane that was.) But the drawing above posted by Han Dong and later forwarded by several parties is really cute!
There’s finally a closer picture of Emperor Kang Xi. Yay! Mystery solved as to what he would look like in here. At least one of his outfits.
What was strange was seeing Chen Jin Nan fighting with Ao Bai. Like really? I honestly don’t remember the novel anymore since though I read it three times already BUT it has been awhile. Yet I don’t remember that part. Maybe they’re giving Chen Jin Nan a bigger role for this adaptation. I actually don’t mind. At least it’s a refreshing side–even if it will be exaggerated to some degree.
However, what’s even more puzzling is this one. Maybe they were just posing for the picture on break time. But when in the world did they meet? Is this a hint some characters would be cut out to make more room for Chen Jin Nan? Just saying. (Or was it in the changes that Jin Yong made later and I wasn’t even paying attention? Since I only have the first version. That’s like ages back.) Wild guesses on my part really, but it’s kind of fun to guess based upon some of the pictures.
What I found really cute (as well as the first image) was this one. Yeah, they were messing around and posing for the camera, but still cute in a way.
With all the commotions though, there’s still no words of Xiao Bao’s Zeng Rou Mei Zi. It’s getting super suspicious now, like some people might be right with Yin Hu replacing her. Or is that so? Because they’re still filming palace scenes so once they move to scenes outside of the palace, they might reveal who’s Zeng Rou? Being hopeful here.
I haven’t checked the news as of recent SO not sure what else has been reported or that would reveal more answers. (Since I’ve been running around like a mad person again with taking care of school-related stuff. If I find out the answers, I’ll update about that in the future.)
