[Basically in this world there should be no manly enough aka. charming eunuch, to be worthy enough to be mentioned by a fandom like mine... but in this drama, eunuch Li Yu was exceptional] 😆
There was an eunuch called Li Yuming during Qianlong era. He was one year older than Qianlong (born in 1710) and died a year after Consort Xian (1767).
It was said he was quite good at calligraphy and straight forward, but he made mistake while dealing with how Consort Xian’s burial must be conducted, so he was exiled to Xinjiang and died of old and illness.
😞 I cannot translate the Chinese quite well about how he misconduct the burial, but I can say it is not completely his fault because he was just an eunuch and at that time everyone knew Emperor still “angry” toward Consort Xian even after her death.
🙏 If anyone knows the details please info me. The original text is on Baike (Baidu Encyclopedia), just search for name “李玉鸣”.
♥️ Give hearts to actor #黄宥明 who brought character #李玉 alive.
Tình yêu bền chặt theo năm tháng nơi cung cấm mãi chỉ là chuyện vọng tưởng. Có lẽ nàng sai vì đã lỡ yêu người không nên yêu. Cả một đời yêu người, bao hỉ nộ ái ố vinh nhục bên người, những tưởng cùng nhau đến già, nhưng hoá ra cũng chỉ là giấc mộng đêm hè... Đến cuối cùng vẫn là nàng chết trong chữ tình bao lâu vun đắp.
"Kẻ nào suốt đêm thâu không ngủ
Ngồi trông gió thu xuyên qua màn cung cấm
Một sợi chấp niệm khoá vào nơi ải tình
Quay đầu nhìn lại, như giấc mộng như khói sương." (Trầm niên lưu hương - Lôi Giai - Vietsub Dạ Yết)
🎥 Phim: Ruyi's royal love in the palace (Hậu cung Như Ý truyện - 2018)
Suo Xin and Jiang Yubin. The only happy couple alive, loving each other from childhood til old. In the pic they are kneeling down in front of tombs of Ruyi and Ling Yunche.
🤦🏻♀️ So the drama version also follow history that Ruyi’s tomb was treated as if she was merely a palace maid ... 🧐 But in drama version isn’t the emperor realize his mistakes, shouldn’t he redecorate and relocated her tomb? Or maybe the drama version indicates us that Qianlong “approve” Yunche and Ruyi anyway because he in fact, doesn’t love her anymore?
Lol- ranting about my irrelevant thoughts.
I remember months ago watching Legend of Dugu- Yang Jian cheated on Jialuo but at least he did cry heaven and earth when she died and hold a BIG ceremony for her. That’s the true love story, thou that drama was lack of showing us such historical facts. 😅
💔Back to Ruyi, So I guess, knowing the end would be like this, if I were her I would tell Qianlong from the beginning: me or throne. 😆
🤓 They don’t even give Li Yu a chance to live... poor fella.
