Hyun Bin and Lillian Lee

Well, this made my day several folds more tolerable.

 

I have an intense, one-way relationship with Lillian Lee/李碧華 (Farewell My Concubine, Rouge, Green Snake, Temptation of a Monk, Terracotta Warriors…) for most of my life, since I can read chinese on newspaper actually.  She is my favorite HK writer.  Period. It is hardcore stalkerish, I read her column rain and shine, without fail and it has been clockwork for decades.  And she has never written a thing that does not pique my interest and lingers.  And, we share the exact same taste…in everything.

So to read her column today, when she is giving a cheer and shoutout to the TW students protesting for the sanctity of their turf with passion and blood,  segueing into the sensational tale of a Prince’s last fight for survival in one day when all things looks hopelessly terribly dire, but emerges the victor, giving a nod to HyunBinnie especially on how intense his eyes are in the brief moments in the minute long trailer, plus how good she thinks the trailer looks and how much she loves the name 逆鱗/ a scale on a baneful dragon inversed…means a world to me.

批其逆鱗 – 李碧華

台灣「反服貿黑箱」學潮,以濺血清場暫止,但未作結。反的是「黑箱」背後出賣,抗的是紅色魔掌以經濟障眼。接着的行動,罷課……不知道明天,緊握今日的自由民主法治。加油!

看韓片海報、玄彬、韓智敏、趙正錫,鄭在英等主演的《逆鱗》,各人造型很吸引,尤其首拍古裝片的玄彬,飾演面臨暗殺危機的朝鮮國王正祖,繼位一年後,某個電閃雷鳴的黑夜,禁宮發生怪奇事件。王位爭奪戰勾心鬥角充滿戲味,中國的禁宮血淚史更精采。朝鮮很「隔」,還遠過「星星」,不過玄彬眼神深沈蓄勢待發之姿,令觀眾期待。

我特別喜歡《逆鱗》這片名,一看就知有故事。

….I like the name 《逆鱗》 espcially, you can tell with a glance there is a story to tell.   -Lillian Lee

 

Have a trailer out yesterday. It looks tight as expected.

 

From the Csub:

‘寡人 (a humble honorific a King refers to oneself) is the son of Crown Prince Sado

… A man who must live.

‘It is not too late!’

…A man who must be saved.

‘Are you asking me to commit murder for you?’

…A man who must die.

He who suffers.

…Today is the day…to kill a King.

‘We have chosen to follow the King.  He is our King.’

‘First, I need you to attack.’

‘Live on…’

‘So?’

‘All of them…kill them all.’

An incident buried in history.

A suffocating 24 hours.

King Jeongjo ‘This is…the world you are expecting?’

    1. IT. IS!

      And even though we all know the story pretty well and what’s in store, this trailer still should make anyone other than me ( as biased as a HB loonie goes) wanna watch it bad.
