[Eng] Miss Truth Ep 13 & 14


Synopsis: Set in the Tang Dynasty, Ran Yan is a noblewoman who becomes interested in forensic science after her Mother’s mysterious suicide and begins to solve murder cases. She meets a judicial official and an assassin by chance and finds true love through the course of searching for the truth.

Translator notes:

  1. Luring the snake out of the hole: A scheme to lure the enemy out of the shadows/ hiding place
  2. Brother Huai Yin: In the book he is a monk
  3. Coming of the cups ceremony: It is a key part of the traditional wedding ceremony. Jin is another character for the gourd (as shown in the drama) which is halved and during the ceremony they are drunken out of and joined together again. It was the ancient version of the crossing wine cup ceremony in a chinese wedding ceremony.
  4. The weeds grow incessantly, the dews on it’s leaves shine brightly…: This is a famous love poem in the Classic of Poetry and was written somewhere during the western Zhou dynasty and the Spring and Autumn period.
  5. Received the Imperial decree to head to battle, There is no reunion date for this separation: This is one of my favorite tragic love poems. The title roughly translates to Goodbye wife, written by Su Wu on the eve of his departure to battle. The first four lines describes the love between he and his wife, like We married at adolescence, there is no question about our love, Happiness halts from tonight onwards, We must treasure the time we have… The 5-8th lines talk about biding farewell at night and the 9th to 12th lines talk about their separation at dawn. The final two lines are extremely famous: If I am alive I will return, If I die let us remember this forever

  1. OMG, this drama is such a pleasure to watch. I came here fresh from Love and Redemption and after watching it three times a needed a reprieve. This drama is a pleasant surprise. I’m enjoying it so much. The banters between our leads are just so precious. The FL is so refreshing (some of the quasi cute actresses are just plain annoying, I’m referring to Yang Zi). The script is so hilarious – sex and semen. Why not? Thank you Productive Procrastination for subbing this. I could not possibly get to try it without seeing it on your website. Moreover, your notes are just incredibly enriching and educating about Chinese culture; without them, I would not have understood and took the context to their fullest. Best,


  2. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.


    1. I don’t know what you’re trying to blog but first is authenticity, uniqueness, good research and lots of promotion. There are so many good underrrated blogs out there that barely anyone has heard of so promotion is key if you’re writing in a crowded field. If it’s very niche with not many blogs about the subject then that’s not as important.


  3. Thank you sooo much for the eng subs!! Wow. The Snow Demon case was quite something. Why do I ship the cold and mysterious Su Fu with Ran Yan??


  4. Thanks and appreciation to you for subbing this – please keep up the good work otherwise I won’t be able to finish this drama 🙂


  5. Hi ProductiveProcratstionation,

    thank you for the subs, it’s a one kind of interesting drama,
    I’m trying to watch this episode, but it keeps error when playing 😥


  6. Excellent job – enjoying each episode -This has become my go-to when I can’t sleep – too much anxiety right now. Your depth of understanding of different poems and historical references is amazing. I am not rooting for FIsh.


  7. Thank you so much for subbing. This is now one of my fave C-drama besides Yanxi Palace and of course Eternal Love. I love Ran Yan and her enfant terrible attitude from the start. Now, that’s a woman with sass. Of course, she will end with her FISH (… i hope), they already have adorable nicknames for each other. Su Fu, of course, is the typical trope of the brooding, sacrificing, silent hero who just came at the right time to rescue the girl. But this girl does not need rescuing. She needs a mental challenge.

    1. LOL.
      I think she needs both. Some really nasty people around.
      It’s my crack drama this year. Nothing has come close.


  8. One of the benefits of a rewatch is seeing how much the characters change over the course of the drama. I remember now how put off I was by the early Ran Yan especially her arrogance and self-righteous attitude 😉 but as time progresses, as she understands that what you see isn’t necessarily what the truth is, the change is palpable.
    Love this show so much.

  10. Thank you so much for the fast subbing and your hard work!! There are many people who wanted to watch this serie but because there isnt a translation couldnt watch it


  11. Thank you so much for uploading episodes so fast! I sincerely appreciate your effort and I love the additional explanations before the videos as it makes me feel like I have a deeper understanding of characters. This drama is the only one I could find to hold my attention during this crazy time and it makes me smile when I find two more episodes in the morning, so seriously, thanks for that. I hope you are able to stay safe and happy while working to spread happiness to the rest of us. Take time for yourself also! Again, thank you!


  12. Thank you for these 2 episodes they brought a very Bright spot in my day 7 of 14 mandatory home quarantine in HK (still managing to keep my sanity in check on 500 sqf with no outside space on 29th floor … )

    You can not help but root all the way for Su Fu to get the girl, I have to restrain myself to do a fast forward thru the RAW versions to find out … 23 delightful episodes to go I hope.
    This drama is surprisingly good with more plot depth than I would have given it initially credit for.

    I wish I could do more than just give you my very sincere words of appreciation in providing these subs, if you have a link to donate a coffee let me know
