    o_O naisu!!! Now let's hope they won't screw this up.

    Edit: Nvm, I saw Yu Zheng mentioned in the rant. Let's just not get our hopes up.

    Hmn...if they are taking out the transmigration part, how are they going to explain YX's poison detox? Ah well, I'm preparing my sanity.

    I watched Princess Wei Yang and well, oh well.

    Yeah, I'm setting my expectations low so I don't get disappointed! As long as the characters exist there with their personalities intact, I can even imagine it as an Alternate Universe PGC! Heheh.

    It's by Yu Zheng? Well I will give it a hard pass as he really destroys the books he adapts in the name of creativity.

    Nah, not confirmed yet. It's just that the two male leads mentioned so far have worked in Yu Zheng productions, so there's a possibility he might be involved.

    ...hopefully not!

    Yay to discussion!

    I think I will keep my expectations low for PGC though. Better to not have any and hope that they at least try to follow the novel and not merge characters together because they "seem similar".

    I thought it was good until I read the novel... @@ Here's to hoping they don't kill PGC!

    Transmigration is one of the major charm of the novel I just hope if they are omitting it then they can replace it with equally just' plot.

    "Faith" was also transmigration drama. And it is one of my fav's too. Don't understand their reason of removing such phenomenon from drama version :cautious:

    If I recall correctly, there was a spike in teenage suicide attempts after Scarlet Heart came out because girls wanted to "transmigrate" to the past.

    The Chinese government then outlawed it as a plot device in various drama series. Might not be the only reason, but it was definitely a factor.

    I'm crossing my fingers that they dont. T^T pretty please dont...


    Woah..there is such a thing?! Oh my goodness! I can understand it if that's the reason...

    Well, maybe they can change the way she transmigrated. Like...hmn...dying because of an incurable disease or like...being suddenly enveloped by a bright light because YX was being summoned by her icicle self. Or something like that. That's really hard to copy in real life. Parental guidance should be advised.

    That's alarming. Make sense for them to avoid such plots. But I read the link above for drama synopsis, they really chopped the story robbing the FMC from superb character trait:confused:. It is simply a genius girl with great potential attracting MMC for her expertise. (I don't find it that appetizing this way :cry: )

    +1
    They can avoid associating transmigration with object or specific place. Instead "heavens might" is more appropriate (to avoid suicide attempts).

    This guy doesn't look like an ice-cube at all. He better not smile secretly or whatnot when the drama rolls in...
