Apparently, QSHF, the Ruby Lin angstorama I am pre-obsessed about, has been moved way up and is airing September 28, right after BBJX ends. YESSS.
In honor of that, have the 15-min trailer good subs (subbed by viki, which is subbing the drama overall). I'd embed it but stupid lj doesn't allow iframe embedding.
In the event you don't want to watch 15+ minutes, here is a short summary "doom, angst, cool outfits, be-furred siblings, poison, swords, more angst and DOOOOOOM."
After watching the trailer, I must say I have the following advice to the characters:
Ruby Lin: Find a Buddhist nunnery and hide there for the rest of your life. Also, before befriending hot war-genius kings of neighboring nations, make sure they are emotionally stable. Also, please vet your significant others' family and decide to adopt if you want kids as, on the off chance he (any he) and you live long enough to reproduce, you don't want your offspring to take after psychos, trust me.
Wallace Huo: I appreciate you saving Ruby and protecting her from everything, but perhaps she wouldn't need saving and protecting if you didn't bring her to a palace where your wife and sis both want her dead. Also, that part about telling her you'll make her happiest ever when she's there because of blackmail? I sense cognitive dissonance. Final note - shed the fur, you are not a gorilla. While we are at it, just shed everything. Repeatedly. Please.
Yan Kuan: Just kill yourself. Seriously, poor thing, you'll be better off. But first please off all the aristocracy in your kingdom, starting with your 'it's OK to lose a war to get rid of someone' family. Also first have a hot make-out with Ruby and make me happy. Sex on floor of prison involving chains accepted.
Wallace's fur-obsessed sister: there is a kdrama weeping for you to be its secondary girl somewhere.
Wallace's wife: Schemes of a Beauty is not a guide to life. Also, if a dude doesn't want you, maybe you should take it out on him and not the other woman?
Dude with Long Hair: rock on, that is all.
Everyone else: I am not sure whether jail or therapy is more appropriate. Most likely both.
