Oh my god I’m so fucking thankful and in love with the scriptwriters of Word of Honor. They put in so much consideration into the script and small details that might get glossed over or taken for granted actually hold so much meaning.
Namely, in the scene following the reveal that the hairpin was in fact the real key to the vault (surprise!), A-Xu asks Wen Kexing what they would have done if he hadn’t brought the hairpin.
To this, Wen Kexing replies with the following:
“You came here to die, of course you would wear it.”
This simple sentence holds so much underlying meaning because it implies that they both know the importance and meaning of that hairpin. Also, A-Xu’s lack of reply (but just look at his face) to Wen Kexing’s words shows that he knows he was caught and Wen Kexing hit the nail right on the head.
Without it, it would have been so easy to turn the whole hairpin giving scene into “Oh, Wen Kexing only gave the hairpin to A-Xu because he wanted him to safeguard the real key”. But with this, the writers committed themselves to showing that the hairpin is first and foremost a token of love that A-Xu would bring to his death.
Because he wasn’t aware that the hairpin was the real key, all he knew was that this is the hairpin that Wen Kexing had given to him (knowing full well the meaning behind that gesture). And on Wen Kexing’s side, he knew with certainty that A-Xu understood the significance and thus would bring the hairpin with him to his death.
There isn’t any room for debate: Wen Kexing knows A-Xu well enough to know that he would bring an item of such sentimental value to his death, and A-Xu proved him right by doing exactly that.
“Gu Xiang once thought Zhou Zishu was a poor beggar who was too unfortunate to have run into her Master and even sympathized with him; but after that reply she realized they were just birds of a same damn feather, no wonder they flocked together.
She could only hope now that they had each other to mess around and fight their energy away with, they would cause less disaster for the world.” (ch 15)
This is just precious, a BTS vid from Begin Again. The last day the child actor playing Gong Jun's son was on the set, he kept running around, looking for GJ, calling for his dad, but GJ wasn't on the set then. But then he came and the kid was so excited to see him! 😊
I’m so sorry for all the screaming but oh my god I’m losing it I’m trying so hard to contain myself but please do read all of my posts in a screaming way because despite the lack of all caps I’m actually screaming and not calm at all
I can’t believe it we actually have the clip of A-Xu leaning against Wen Kexing which never made it to the final cut for episode 27
And also the way he cupped his face in this version is so much softer, and Wen Kexing is also a lot softer and this whole mf clip is so soft, im out here sobbing because of all the softness ahshasgahgsjaahsjsja
Zhang Zhehan and Gong Jun's goodbyes for Word of Honor Concert: Day 2 😭😭
They woke up today and chose violence, coming for my heart and tears
GJ: So happy to have met all of you who fell in love with SHL. I need to thank all the fans, no matter if you like me or other actors. I also want to thank ZZH, he was ZZS. And i want to thank the other creators/actors. This has been my most unforgettable experience.
ZZH: No matter if you like ZZS or WKX or if you like ZZS and WKX, once this concert ends, we'll go back to being ZZH and GJ. Thank you for liking ZZH, thank you for liking GJ, thank you for liking ZZH and GJ. It was so great to be with you all this Spring.
And there's something I want to say to JunJun: Even though I am older than you by a bit...I don't know what will happen in the future, what difficulties or situations you might face, but I hope you keep chasing your aspirations and keep innovating. No matter what difficulties you encounter or whenever you might need my help (ZZH referenced himself as gege, older brother), I'll always be here.
ZZH CRYING - IM CRYING!
