Love Letter by Van Fan

(Uploaded by: wck1215)

Song Title: Love Letter (情書)

Music by: Luo Ji Yi (駱集益)

Lyrics by: Wu Yu Kang (鄔裕康)

Key:
Bold = Original
Orange = Pin Yin
Amber = English
Burnt Orange = Vietnamese

一直到雙手 像枯樹一樣斑駁
yi zhi dao shuang shou   xiang ku shu yi yang ban bo
Up until both hands are mottled just like a withered tree
Đến lúc mà đôi tay có vằn giống như sự héo tàn của cây
這些字 才想起了當時的溫柔
zhe xie zi   cai xiang qi le dang shi de wen rou
Only these words could recall that time’s gentleness
Chỉ có những dòng chữ này mới có thể khơi lại sự ôn nhu của lúc đó

一直到 都差走遍千萬個門口
yi zhi dao   dou cha zou bian qian wan ge men kou
Up until having traveled down almost ten millions of paths
Đến lúc đã đi qua gần hết hàng triệu con đường
這些信 才想起了流浪的理由
zhe xie xin   cai xiang qi le liu lang de li you
Only these letters could recall the reason for wandering
Chỉ có những lá thư này mới có thể khơi lại lý do của sự lang thang

一封封情書 穿越緩慢的時空
yi feng feng qing shu   chuan yue huan man de shi kong
A love letter could overcome the slowness of space and time
Một lá thư tình có thể vượt qua được sự chậm rãi của không gian và thời gian
代替我 來不及說的含情默默
dai ti wo   lai bu ji shuo de han qing mo mo
Replacing the silent love hidden inside me that I was too late to express
Để thay thế những lời tình thầm kín lặng lẽ mà tôi đã không kịp nói ra

我相信 離開終究會有始有終
wo xiang xin   li kai zhong jiu hui you shi you zhong
I believe that there should be a beginning and an ending upon leaving
Tôi tin rằng ra đi lần cuối là nên có sự khởi đầu và kết thúc
有一天 我將能為你描寫彩虹
you yi tian   wo jiang neng wei ni miao xie cai hong
One day, I will be able to depict the rainbow because of you
Có một ngày tôi sẽ có thể  vì em mà miêu tả được cầu vồng

(music)

一直到 海角吞沒船尾的臉孔
yi zhi dao   hai jiao tun mei chuan wei de lian kong
Up until the cape engulfs the back end of the ship
Đến lúc mà mũi đất đã nuốt trọn mặt hậu của chiếc thuyền
這港灣 才揚起那鹹鹹的海風
zhe gang wan   cai yang qi na xian xian de hai feng
Only this harbor could elevate the saltiness of sea’s wind
Chỉ có bến đò này mới có thể nâng cao được vị mặn của gío biển

一直到 時間終於一去不回頭
yi zhi dao   shi jian zhong yu yi qu bu hui tou
Up until that last time of leaving and never returning
Đến phút cuối cùng đó thì đã đi mà không còn trở lại được nữa
這些信 才回到我愛人的手中
zhe xie xin   cai hui dao wo ai ren de shou zhong
Only these letters could return to the hands of the person whom I love
Chỉ có những lá thư này là có thể quay trở về trong tay của người mà tôi yêu

一封封情書 穿越緩慢的時空
yi feng feng qing shu   chuan yue huan man de shi kong
A love letter could overcome the slowness of space and time
Một lá thư tình có thể vượt qua được sự chậm rãi của không gian và thời gian
代替我 等了好久的十指相擁
dai ti wo   deng le hao jiu de shi zhi xiang yong
Replacing my long-awaited embrace
Để thay thế cho sự mong mỏi được ôm trong vòng tay

我知道 回去不一定一路順風
wo zhi dao   hui qu bu yi ding yi lu shun feng
I know that returning doesn’t mean the trip would be smooth sailing
Tôi biết rằng quay về không nghĩa là sẽ được thuận lợi
只希望 有天好好梳你的白頭
zhi xi wang   you tian hao hao shu ni de bai tou
Just hoping that one day I could gingerly comb your white hair
Chỉ hy vọng rằng có một ngày tôi có thể thận trọng mà chải tóc bạc của em

Patching Up A Lie by Phil Chang

(Uploaded by: 藍色點唱機)

Song Title: Patching Up A Lie (圓謊)

Lyricist: Shi Yi Lang (十一郎)

Composer: Phil Chang (張宇)

Key:
Bold = Chinese
Burnt Orange = Pin Yin
Brown = English
Toned-Down Orange = Vietnamese

沉默是久了點
chen mo shi jiu le dian
Silent for a long time
Yên lặng trong thời gian dài
誰該先說再見
shui gai xian shuo zai jian
Who should say goodbye first?
Ai nên nói lời giã biệt trước tiên?
雖然我早有了準備
sui ran wo zao you le zhun bei
Even if I’m already prepared
Cho dù tôi đã sớm chuẩn bị
然而矛盾總難免
ran er mao dun zong nan mian
Yet contradictions are always hard to avoid
Nhưng sự mâu thuẫn thiệt khó tránh

我以為能實現
wo yi wei neng shi xian
I think it should be done
Tôi nghĩ rằng nên thực hiện
讓你再快樂點
rang ni zai kuai le dian
Allowing you to be happy once again
Để em có thể trở lại trong vui vẻ
這些話說到了唇邊
zhe xie hua shuo dao le chun bian
These words being said by the lips
Những lời nói ra từ khóe môi
忍不住流淚滿面
ren bu zhu liu lei man mian
Not being able to stand it, tears pour all over the face
Nhịn không được nên nước mắt tràn đầy mặt

真的很難兩全其美
zhen de hen nan liang quan qi mei
It’s really hard to have it both ways
Rất khó mà có thể vẹn cả đôi đường
我們己經試過多少回
wo men ji jing shi guo duo shao hui
We’ve already tried numerous times
Chúng ta đã từng thử qua biết bao nhiêu lần rồi
避開了爭辯
bi kai le zheng bian
Avoiding the disagreements
Tránh được sự tranh cãi
卻開始了另一種疏遠
que kai shi le ling yi zhong shu yuan
Yet starting to become estranged in another way
Nhưng đã bắt đầu trở nên xa lạ theo một cách khác

說一個謊言 圓一個謊言
shuo yi ge huang yan   yuan yi ge huang yan
Telling a lie, patching up a lie
Nói lên một lời nói dối, vá lại một lời nói dối
我們愛的多麼危險
wo men ai de duo mo wei xian
Our love is that dangerous
Tình yêu của chúng ta nguy hiểm vậy đó
誰也沒發現
shui ye mei fa xian
Who still doesn’t realize that
Ai vẫn còn không phát hiện được
是自己讓這份感情毀滅
shi zi ji rang zhe fen gan qing hui mie
It’s our own doing that has perished that bit of love?
Rằng chúng ta đã tự mình phá hủy đi phần cảm tình này?

因為都想被安慰
yin wei dou xiang bei an wei
It’s all because of wanting to be comforted
Toàn là vì muốn được sự an ủi
竟然以為承諾能減少眼淚
jing ran yi wei cheng nuo neng jian shao yan lei
Unexpectedly thinking that committment could lessen tears
Đột nhiên lại nghĩ rằng lời hứa hẹn sẽ làm giảm đi nước mắt
忘了真心的感覺
wang le zhen xin de gan jue
Forgetting the feeling of sincerity
Quên đi rằng cảm giác thành tâm
早己經面目全非
zao ji jing mian mu quan fei
Has already changed beyond recognition
Đã sớm thay đổi hoàn toàn

The Snow Queen: Dylan’s New Drama

I first noticed about this when Dylan posted pictures on his wall. The drama is produced by Wang Yu Ren (王裕仁) and is directed by Yang Yang (杨阳). The screenwriter is Jia Dong Yan (贾东岩). The theme would be along the line of fantasy, obviously from various stills so far.

Dylan is supposedly the male lead but not quite sure since there is conflicting information elsewhere. I’ll update if there are changes or more clarifications.

Rayza is the female lead. I’ve never watched her before so I’ll hold comments, except for the fact that she looks quite cool as an archer.

What amused me was seeing Yuen Wah. Not quite sure what role he would be portraying in here but the last few years or so, he has been portraying comedic roles mostly.

The Legend of the Condor Heroes 2016: Other Characters

The drama actually wrapped up already but I got lazy with updating. So back to share the rest of the characters that were revealed.

Ying Gu (瑛姑) is portrayed by Zhang Kai Yi (张楷依).

Xia Zi Tong (夏梓桐) is Sha Gu (傻姑).

Zong Feng Yan (宗峰岩) is Wanyan Honglie (完颜洪烈).

Next, major characters within the Mongolian empire. Tay Ping Hui is Temujin (鐵木真) aka Genghis Khan (成吉思汗). His daughter, Hua Zheng (華箏), is portrayed by Dai Wen Wen (代文雯). Fu Tian Jiao (傅天骄) will be Jebe (哲別), Guo Jing’s master–the one who taught him archery. (I’ll circle back later since the fancy writing is killing my eyes, lol.)
