[Eng] Love and Redemption Ep 6

Synopsis: 1000 years ago, the God of war and the Star of Mosha fought against each other during a bitter battle that almost upturned the way of the world. However at the end of it, both had disappeared mysteriously. 1000 years later, their reincarnations are born into the mortal realm. Chu Xuanji was born into the world lacking the ability to understand or receiving information from the 6 senses leaving her clueless to the world and inept. She befriends Yu Sifeng, the most skilled disciple from the Lize palace who falls in love with her despite the consequences that would occur if he falls in love with a woman. Meanwhile, the demonic realm are preparing themselves to revive the star of Mosha in order to overthrow the Heavenly realm once more and soon the events of the past catches up to them….


  1. Illusion from a reflection, shadow from a glimpse: This is a chinese phrase that means a dim impression that vanishes quickly
  2. Qi: In wuxia/xianxia this is the vital energy that exists in all beings and things. It is the thing that determines life. You can think of it as a life essence, once Qi runs out, you’re pretty much dead which is why according to the chinese wuxia novels/dramas in order to become powerful and have an eternal life you must cultivate Qi.
  3. The uncle/aunt, master/ disciple relationship: You will sometimes see Master and teacher being used to describe the same term 师爢. This term is made up of the characters Teacher and Father so technically once you have a master, they are pretty much like half a father to you. This was set in a time where filial duty and respecting your elders was extremely important and ultimately affects your prospects so showing any disobedience and disrespect to your master was absolutely forbidden, whereas the master was allowed to punish his disciple, decide on the future of his disciple as he wished unless it was very inappropriate. The only similar relationship in western terms would be probably be at a time when women were the possessions of their fathers and husbands but perhaps with a little more freedom. Hence, the seniors and juniors of your master would be like an aunt or uncle and should be treated like thus. FYI: Elder/Aunt Yinghong is not only the junior of Sect Leader Chu but also his sister so Xuanji and Linglong calls her paternal aunt but it’s hard to make that distinction in the subtitles because I don’t have enough room so I’ll mention it here πŸ™‚

  1. One of my favourite episode for the start of these series, the bed scene with sifeng eye movement shows that he is starting to have real feelings for xuanji.


  2. Re: Shufu, in the West historically teachers (of children) were allowed to beat their students. However considering an adults a parallel would be the leaders of monastic communities, the chief monk or nun. The rules of these communities were very strict. They each had a written set of rules. There were levels of membership, children or new members were called novices and not fully inducted in the order. Day to day life involved a great deal of physical deprivation. In convents the nuns called their leader (sometimes known as an Abbess) Mother Superior. The leader of a monastery is called an Abbot, from the word for “father” in Aramaic.

    In terms of control, once you took “holy orders” and were fully inducted in the sect, most aspects of your life would be controlled by the rule of the sect and the leader or leaders. Convents in later times had less autonomy and they also had to take a lot of orders from church hierarchy (bishops, priests).

    While the situation is not exactly the same, I think it’s the scenario with the greatest similarity.
