Ehhh, today’s chapter is relatively short but the next one will be much longer so please hold those brickbats! 😜
In Ch. 8.3, Jiangnan is mentioned as the novel’s locale. 江南 Jiāngnán [literally] south of the River — a region in the lower Changjiang (Yangtze) valley, including southern Jiangsu and Anhui and northern Zhejiang (much celebrated in poetry for its beauties and joys) [Source: Pleco] which I think explains why the author spends time describing certain scenes, as she does in today’s instalment. It sounds like the inspiration for this place is the West Lake in Hangzhou? I’m sure the drama will deviate a fair bit from the novel but going by the stills alone, they seemed to have spared no expense to recreate the look of many places in the novel! If nothing else, the sets will be something to look forward to!
