Listening Snow Tower 听雪楼 tells a heart-wrenching tale with its main characters, played by Qin Junjie and Yuan Bingyan, overcoming many obstacles in the action-packed wuxia drama. As the series nears its finale, audiences wonder if the adaptation will have a happy ending or whether it will remain true to the novel till the end.
The following will contain spoilers from the novel. With a heroine that is destined to have the people closest to her die, things are not looking up.
Five years after Shu Jingrong enters Ting Xue Lou, several misunderstandings develop between Xiao Yiqing and Shu Jingrong due to Shi Mingyan’s provocations. They succumb to their suspicions and ultimately develop a mutual distrust of each other, ending up as enemies and fighting each other to the death. Both Xiao Yiqing and Shu Jingrong die at a young age, 27 and 25 respectively.
With Xiao Yiqing and Shu Jingrong gone, Shi Mingyan becomes the new tower master. Xiao Yiqing and Shu Jingrong are buried together while the four great guardians protect their remains. The great priest, Jia Ruo, uses his inner energy as bait and lures the evil spirits in the holy lake down to a place where he can seal them forever. He succeeds but loses his life due to his act of sacrifice.
After seven years as the tower master, Shi Mingyan leaves one night and takes the Blood Rose Sword with her.
Author Cang Yue 沧月 has a reputation for tragic endings so much so that people have said that she simply doesn’t understand how to make a happy ending. With the three main characters dead, Listening Snow Tower is no exception.
It’s no secret that the drama has made many changes from the novel and was even criticized for its depiction of the heroine, so there’s definitely a chance that it will go with a different ending altogether. What do you guys think? Is there hope for a happy ending?
From preview I've seen, I'm sure it will go with a different ending from the novel
I still hope for happy ending. ?
I'm hoping for a happy ending please
I hope for a happy ending…. Not with the sad ending ?
I would like a happy ending too, but I've mentally tuned out already. I'm not feeling the romances anymore.
Any1 else hoping there is a 2nd season?!
I loved the happy ending. I enjoyed the drama and the soundtrack.
I like when a drama has a different ending from the book. It gives you a way to imagine a different possibility.
This makes the saying, anything can happen sound more real and lively.
i watch this one year later and the story and characters really suck, i only watch it for ONE actress now! thanks fortelling it ends well, at least the who,e story sucks from medical atrousciousness and rewinding unnecessary misunderstandings forcibly produced by characters who have absolutely no such personalities to do so?♀️at the wrong moment to give a sloppy answer,…just fir a tragic storyline,…
I cannot thank you enough – I have just watched two series of Ever night, the first series was great and had promise. Unfortunately in the second the hero changed. And I don’t blame the original actor for not wanting to carry on. The actor that took over was good- no criticism meant – but just not the same. However, the confusion about the goddess Haotian became soo annoying. Is she the goddess of eternal night? Or the goddess of light? as one atrocious religious group worshipped her. It became so muddled I just gave up. The last three episodes I watched just to see if anything was resolved- nothing much was . Amazingly all the other people were not in evidence ?! The end was full of sadistic torture, beatings, and mindless evil. But now the hero goes off with this most appalling goddess, who is devoid of any godly trait. She had the visage of a petulant spoiled brat. The hero only goes off with her because she contains his wife. So we wait for series three which I will not be bothering with. I expect the Sage who is the embodiment of good must come back but to me he was a facetious, gluttonous old man who left his disciples vulnerable to the greater strength of evil. Thank you again for your post. I actually don’t mind knowing the end of series , not specific details but just the eventual actuality. I have watched many series through which there has been hope, only to find the end is a complete travesty. The Wolf was the most aggravating – I actually hoped he would die or be emasculated. He took over doing it to the nth degree. So I won’t watch this one.
This is a shame because I love Chinese mythology, the actors are wonderful the sets are glorious. The imagination of all the trials and secret traps which tests the hero’s are just incredible.
One thing I would really like to know. Why oh why, cannot the heroes of these stories actually mention the word ‘ love ‘. This saying ‘I like you’ while a yard apart is so silly I cannot see the point, it is just so unnatural. Perhaps you can tell me the reason for this.
I’m just watching this series. A few reviews says it suck – I guess that’s in comparison with the novel. I’ve never read the Novel but I enjoy the series. I’ve been binge watching it and loving every minute!!
