Spoiler Ahead: Do not read this if you’ve not yet finished Joy of Life
Joy of Life‘s season endingscene definitely had us all scratching our heads trying to come up with a reason. So, why indeed? While certainly not the real reason, imaginative Netizens have come up with a rather tongue in cheek supposition as to what pushed Xiao Zhan’s character Yan Bingyun to plunge the dagger in THAT scene that made us all gasp collectively. And you’ll never guess why.
It’s all because Zhang Ruoyun got the girl .. or should I say .. girls!
Ancient stories have shown that wars were fought for far less, so why not for the love of a woman? Take Homer’s Illiad for example, Helen being married to Menelaus and running away with Paris (after being the recipient of Cupid’s arrow) started a war that spanned a decade and caused the destruction of an entire people. So really, saying that Bingyun stabbed Fan Xian because he got the women isn’t entirely reaching. I mean, he managed to steal the hearts of Xiao Zhan’s two Jade Dynasty on-screen loves – Tina Tang Yixin (Tiang Ling’er) and Li Qin(Xue Qi) right? Can you see why he had some grief to settle with Zhang Ruoyun/Fan Xian? *lol*
In a cross-over of Jade Dynasty and real life, Zhang Ruoyun married Xiaofan’s first love Tina Tang Yixin aka Tian Ling’er on a gorgeous summer’s day in the Emerald Isles last June, so score one for Zhang Ruoyun/Fan Xian’s corner.
Then Fan Xian managed to captivate dear Li Qin/ Xue Qi in Joy of Life as his chicken leg girl, so yup, another point in Fan Xian’s corner. Ding ding. Check mate.
But kidding aside, who here is so looking forward to the show’s second season? Coz that ending’s got drama fans on tenterhooks! Can the drama gods put us all out of our misery and start filming it real soon?
