Memory Lost Chinese Drama Review & Thoughts 美人为馅 (Guest Review)

Image
I only started Memory Lost after hearing my friends’ nonstop raving of the series, and fortunately, by that time, all three seasons were out.

My Rating: 8/10
The beginning started with our heroine Bai Jin Xi (YANG RONG) trespassing into a swimming pool party to solve a case. She was falsely informed by her subordinate, Zhou Xiao Zhuan, that it was a cocktail party, so she was dressed in an elegant black cocktail dress. To enter, she had to cut her dress to what the guard considered an acceptable swimsuit. In the hotel, watching the party from above, we have our hero Han Chen (Bai Yu) calmly sipping some wine and sketching the outline of a woman’s face in his book. Jin Xi found the target she was looking for and started fighting with them all the way into the hotel; she, of course, bumped into our hero. Mistaking him for one of the bad guys, she started to fight with him. *This marked the first and rather bumpy interaction between our OTP* Bai Yu escaped the scene, but not before wound…

The Princess Wei Yang Chapter 47

1偷鸡不成蚀把米- unable to steal the chicken, instead lose the rice- meaning originally want to gain something but instead you lost
Nv’er = way to address oneself as the daughter Er zi = way to address oneself as the son

Chapter 47: Residual man sending gifts

Li Xiao Ran stood up and said: “Now we are like a harmonious family, do you know where you are wrong? Talk and let me see.”
Li Chang Le shyly said: “Nv’er’s learning is not refined, and has spoken irresponsibly.”
Li Min Feng look respectfully: “Er zi was impudent, misunderstood my good sister.”
Lao Furen gently smiled and said: “What wrong did Li Wei Yang do?”
Li Xiao Ran was stunned.
At this time, suddenly a voice said: “Sanjie has a wrong.”
Everyone was surprised, all are looking at the boy standing next to Li Wei Yang, he is wearing a red gown, a moon white jade belt on his waist, a cheerfulness on his brows, that did not reach his …

The Princess Wei Yang Chapter 46

This chapter is translated by Angela :) Who can't wait to see Li Min Feng kneel and repent? Is it going to happen?
Chapter 46 : Kneel and repent
Such a big room, in the end it was frighteningly silent.
Want to use your own power against everyone else? In Tuoba Zhen’s eyes, a trace of sneer came across.
At this instant, Li Wei Yang looked clearly into the cold-blooded eyes of the other side, suddenly thought of the painful moments when her own legs were cut off, unexpectedly there was a feeling of suffocation. No matter when, it was just herself fighting.
“San jie would not lie!” At this time, a hand suddenly stretched over, through her sleeves pressing on her hand.
Li Wei Yang’s entire body was startled.
She turned her head, along with the arm in her hand to look, in the bright and beautiful sunshine, Li Min De’s pair of eyes bright like stars, steady gaze, pure, full of trust.
This little boy, forehead full of crystal-like sweats, upon hearing this news, rushed to her side at the first ch…

The Princess Wei Yang Chapter 45

1血口喷人 - bloody mouth spitting onto other people; means to accuse others with bloody lies 2有不透风的墙 - a wall that does not let through wind; means there are no secrets 3哑口无言 - a muted mouth with no speech; means to be speechless
Chapter 45: Taking control of the game
Da Furen suddenly stood up: “Chang Le, how can you speak such nonsense!” As she spoke, she quickly shot her a warning glance and Li Chang Le was stunned as the pearl on her golden hair clasp icily froze. She almost forgot how to breathe until moments later when she finally reacted: “Sanmei, it is all Dajie’s fault, you have been wronged!” Watching their performance, Li Wei Yang couldn’t help it and shook her head. This type of fickle, two-faced personality, how could she have been that stupid in her previous life, it’s not their acting that was good but it was her who desired family so they were able to deceive her. Witnessing the scene, Tuoba Zhen frowned. What was happening?

The Princess Wei Yang Chapter 44

Will they find the red ginsend that they placed in Wei Yang's residence? This chapter is translated by me!

1恨铁不成钢 - hate to see iron can’t become steel; one’s child does not live up to one’s own expectations 2铁证如山 - ironclad evidence piled up on the mountain
Chapter 44: Reverse the course of events Li Min Feng settled his thoughts, he knew that Zi Yan definitely placed the gold and the remnants of red ginseng that he prepared in Li Wei Yang’s yuanzi. They only have to find it then Li Wei Yang could say whatever but it would be of no use. It was cruel to treat her this way but who told her to climb to a significant position in Lao Furen’s heart and who told her to be this obedient? In Li Min Feng’s heart, he only considered his own birth mother and his legitimate sister Li Chang Le as people, his other half-siblings are merely ants. This ant that dares to threaten their authority should, of course, pay a price! Li Wei Yang, even if you don’t die, you would still be kicked out of the Li …

The Princess Wei Yang Chapter 43

An extra chapter this week for the delay and to celebrate my graduation/upcoming backpacking trip :)

Translated by me ^_^ the drama continues, how will Li Wei Yang get herself out of this situation?


1胸有成竹 - having complete confidence in one’s heart; means to be completely confidence with one's plan
Chapter 43: Irrefutable Evidence Lao Furen knitted her brows: “It is good enough to summon my personal physician---”
Li Min Feng spoke: “An ordinary physician would probably be of no use, I heard physician Lin is a talent in distinguishing medicine, why don’t we summon him.” Lao Furen was hesitant for a moment; physician Li was known for being conservative and honest with a lofty virtue worthy of respect so he would absolutely not show partiality for either sides. The main reason Li Min Feng suggested to summon him was most likely to ensure everyone is utterly convinced. Lao Furen closed her eyes and continued to hesitate over the idea. Deadly stillness overtook the whole room. Li Wei Yang’s de…

The Princess Wei Yang Chapter 42

This chapter is translated by Chau - Thanks Chau :)
Sorry for the delay - expect something else this week!
*The title is referring to Zi Yan, who betrays LWY in hopes of winning Da Furen’s favor, so she may have a chance with Li Min Feng. The literal translation is: Sell Master, Hope Glory.

Chapter 42: Sell Someone Out In Hopes of Winning Favor
Once everyone had heard, they were shocked and horrified. Da Furen was the first person to react: “Suzi? This is clearly the red ginseng Lao Furen often uses! Chang Le, you are only a child, do not speak without thinking!”
Li Chang Le spoke decisively as if hammering a nail into a post: “Red ginseng is also readily available at my place. How could I not know? These things are obviously not red ginseng!”
Everyone’s gazes were fixated on her hand, but from the moment the red ginseng was added to water to when it had fallen onto the ground, how could anyone recognize what it was now? Yet, Li Chang Le firmly insisted that this was the case.
Li Wei Yang co…
