also, how come we haven't heard from Jin lovers? He's rather sweet, too :)

last thing, working on a website : http://therose.fateback.com

Fans welcomed to do bios, add news, write reviews..etc., nothing much to see right now, still under construction. Nothing fancy, since it's my first real website. See the awful lack of graphics..
Cool site. Liked that net and tv link to Kui pics. :w00t: Ah..I can't believe Jerry is pure chinese. This whole time I thought he was mixed! Good to know! Just one thing though...some of the content is spoilerish.

In "Cover People" interview, Joe (Kui) said that he always playing different role with his older sister when they was younger, pretented to be merchandiser, school principle and all kind of thing. And when play out the fairy tale roles from snow white and such Joe always played the bad guy role. Ever since he was young, when taking pictures he always made different pose.

hey "the rose" fans! espcially those of you who are fans of kui & selina... :D

if you haven't noticed already, there's a download for kdrama music videos. well, not all of them are for kdramas. one is for the rose! it's the ending song, i believe. anyways, it's a pretty long music video, because it even has a storyline. it's basically about kui & selina, though they're not playing their roles from the drama. i think that those of you who are diehard fans will enjoy it. :lol oh, and no subs, but i think you can get the meaning.

He said in his profile info himself that he doesn't sing well. But then I mean there're a lot of singers out there that sound really bad. I really hope he'll consider singing though. But for the moment he's only doing modelling, acting and commercials.

maybe the pic of him singing that you saw, is the pic from the MV 'Guitarist' sung by a girl (dunno her name) and Joe's role in that MV is as a 'famous rock singer :roll (he is just a model in the MV)' ...you can download/watch the MV from the link below:

LMAO. That's why you watch several series at once so you always have something to fill your need when the addiction's too great. Getting totally addicted to one series is a bad thing... what if they stop in the middle of a cliffhanger and put it on hiatus?! A few days' wait is nothing... actually, clouds421 & crew are releasing at an amazing rate for a fansub group. :)

Still working on the problem...

In the meanwhile, I updated the website a little bit w/ pics & news: http://therose.fateback.com --> stop by & sign the guestbook, lol, all I see is Crystaln in there. Thanks girl!
(Working on information right, so it's mainly text. If I have time, I'll go back & work on asthetics.

Interesting info I found...Ella was asked by the director to gain 3kg for the role. In addition she had to wear layers of clothing underneath to make herself look chubby enough. (Yeah, I remember ShiraHime (?) mentioned she noticed this right?)

Then..found this pic while looking for news, a topless & scuffy looking Jerry..I'll just post link since some have expressed less than enthusiasm about this: http://ent.dayoo.com/img/2004-07/26/xin ... 301c6e.jpg

Another thing, I was being a moron & deleted the images folder on the website while I was uploading stuff. If anyone visited before 8/27 & haven't emptied temp internet files, do me a favor & search to see if you can find the file manga_1.gif will you?

Thanks.

:)

My friend told me Ella had to gain 5 kg for the role and stuff pillows under her clothes to make her look fatter. But yea, same difference. :lol

You know, the more I'm watching deeper into the show, the more I'm amazed by the excellent control of the acting and the script. There're so many scenes that could've turned into disasters, or cheezy, lame and unbelievable situations, especially like *spoiler*Kui and Jin kissing each other, Jin continually crawling into Bai He's bed, Bai He losing weight, or Mao Ji waking up after Fu Rong said she'd stay.*spoiler* But I'm continually impressed by the quality of the acting, and the overall feeling of this show. The comic parts were funny, but never stupid.

If someone told me I was going to fall in love with a bi-sexual character with a tendency to wear a white, silky, lacy nightgown to bed before seeing this, I would've laughed. But Kui...what a guy! What hair! :D

Did anyone else not enjoy the sad song about the leaves and feathers? Did one of SHE sing that, and the ending song? It's not very flattering, in my opinion. But overall the music is great; especially that weird plucking song when things get scary in the show.

Love <The Rose>!

Very insightful comments. I don't think Kui's character is bi-sexual--it's more complex than that, but it'l take some explaining so I'll leave for now. As for his nightgowns, I agree that it's a signature in here. I never exprected it to be so good either. Apart from acting, the dialogue is so original & poignant. Sometimes I feel impregnated w/ thecharacters' feelings without them having to repeat it over & over or express it outwardly (one of my peeves of idol dramas). Everytime Kui becaomes gentle, my heart skips several beats and even stops @ his ilines. The guy is so... can't find the word.

P.S. Calcifer, got your PM, will reply later after I figure out something. I just had this sudden inspiration to expres fanaticism--it's like a sudden burst of energy.

The ending song is "Leaf" by A-Sun or better known as A-Sang. It was actually very popular & won an award. Guess you haven't checked out the OST thread?

Damm Joe Cheng is getting hotter, more and more in the spot light. Today he was on Kan Ci Lai Le with his 2 model friends. Talking about each other and they even perfomed a clothes changing, 3 guys in a small dressing "room".
Image
Joe will be entering college the 5 september with his 2 friends, and hold on, it's the same college that Zai Zai aka Vic is in. What a great college that is, full of hotties :wub:

oh yeah for fetching the show click here

Can anyone tell me who is the singer to this one sad song that plays a lot in the rose? I believe the song is Track 6 in the OST and the instrumental for it, is track 11. Thank in advance!

Really heartfelt expressions. Well, I love the entire cast but don't you think Ru Rong & Kui have a lot of chemistry in their scenes as siblings?

Image

----------

and yeah, the typo in ep. 8 *disapointed* in place of *disappeared* was not shira's fault, the word processor automatically changed it, I didn't catch it. (this was overlap from ep. 7 & I just copied & pasted this part since it wouldn't make sense to have a different translations)

Me again. My internet connection has been down for a day & a half leaving me stranded, and I have no idea what the deal is. I'm going to call ISP later when I get home, but wanted to write in just in case anyone's wondering where I went! (Yeah, cin, first you, then me). I was uploading ep. 11, but don't think it was done yet...I'll get it up as soon as I can get back online.

Contact me by fateback doodle/pm/e-mail if you need me.

hi Xena! :w00t: yay, someone new to the discussion forum, keep it active. It's 10 & 11.

I'm still carrying on my "The Rose Complex" & "Sunflower Complex" (new terminology by me) so you can expect updates on the website. I think I should name it, but I'm so bad at names...give me some ideas?

The Rose Complex (n): I have to come up with the right wording...
Sunflower Complex (n): Check out the poem on fateback & you'll see what I mean! lol

Wanted to post a appendix/addendum, whatever you call it for ep. 11 just for the sake of "accuracy." Around the part where Bai He is describing the person she likes to Jin, she uses rather poetic language here, which was interpreted 3 different ways when I asked 3 translators, so it was hard to pinpoint one meaning to it. It's just a few minutes, but still significant. Braindead and can't think of them right now, but I'll post up meanings when I'm not suffering "wake-up" shock if anyone's interested.

BTW, if anyone has seen me in the incest thread, Opedius Complex was not randomly thrown in here...I was surprised to see it, because I didn't know this was in here before (Chinese name) & indeed double checked to make sure this was the right translation :lol

...and no name suggestions?

-------------
Edit: the meanings, doing this from memory (discussed this 1-2 weeks ago), but should be right...
(1) The meaning that was used says Bai He feels so moved by Jin's faithfulness to someone already dead so that she feels conquered by him and reborn again.
(2) Alternate v1 - Jin's faithfulness is so moving that even that death itself can be moved by his faithfulness (love conquer death) and be revived.
(3) Alternate v2 - Jin's faithfulness is so moving that even the dead/deceased can be moved to come back to life.

Anyway, you get the idea. I find all three to be equally touching & romantic. Just wanted to share this 'cause it's an interesting part.

------------
2nd edit (making up for the wkdays since I probably won't be able to stay around):
The Rose Complex (n): Repercussive effect in which one watching or have watched The Rose (Qiang Wei Zhi Lian) occupies all free time with it and this consumes all normative rationality otherwise (v1 definition).

I think that's what I'm going to name the site unless someone grabs me and say no, it's dumb, lol, no one gave suggestions. Ok, that's it for now. Good thing, one of my classes is partially computer based so I'll work on websites whenever I have free time, hehe. 'Till next time.

-----------
3rd edit: Just remembered this. If you're interested in seeing The Rose officially come out w/ English subtitles, please write in to YesAsia. As you can see, I can write quite a bit when I'm passionate and I have written in/corresponded w/ them about it (as far as I know, others have done so, too!), and I really get a strong feeling that if enough people show that they're interested, YesAsia may do it. Taking care of the copyrights is probably one expensive risk they're not sure whether they want to take right now as well as exploring a larger market.


----------
4th edit: Gosh, I just can't stop yapping. As we are approaching midpoint of this drama, just feel really grateful towards all translators. This is also the time of new beginnings, new commitments so I know not everybody will have time later on. No matter what happens, I'm so happy to have met & worked with everything ah! Thinking about a million things, and this is one of them. Just random.

Love,
clouds

ah man, I was so active in this thread over the weekend and it's all gone :(

to start over, I found a kind soul to translate A-Sang's "Leaves" (the ending theme)

http://therose.fateback.com/e-lyrics.html

If you haven't seen yet, low quality mv can be streamed or downloaded via nettransport here: http://iamjoe.fateback.com/media.html

Now what wants to take on the other tracks? :lol Just in case, for your convenience, Chinese lyrics: http://therose.fateback.com/c-lyrics.html ...really no perks yet, but how about to challenge your linguistical skills and to be featured in the future hall of fame?

Oh, I also found 2 tracks in The Rose that's not on the ost by Zhang Zhi Cheng (he also appears as a cameo). I'll try to post up on media page if the server permits.

--

note: probably delay w/ next eps, translator for it's busy, I'm busy

New meeting place for The Rose, all translators, go there (I've tried to get hold of everybody, but not everyone available/responding!); if you're a fan, if you wanna be friends, go there & check it out. Kind of a fan forum + traps of youth place. (What does that mean, I dunno :P --it just came into my mind right now, going w/ the flow & the url from host has the word trap in it --sounds pretty good though :) ) Here: http://therose.trap17.com/friends

Jin's bio (it's old, but I just found this): http://therose.fateback.com/jerrybio.html

Talks about 101 Proposals, his beginnings, being Taiwan's top model, intimate scenes w/ Ella & Joe in The Rose...

I imagine clouds and Shirahime might have more current information at the page he mentioned: http://therose.trap17.com/friends. I also remember him mentioning that once school had started people have less time ^^.

I am sure good will come to those who wait *makes big puppy dog eyes towards translators and encoders* :wub:

Update: yup, if you check that forum you get the answer to why it's late.

What Estara said, except I'm a she :)

Down to 2 translators (who aren't students) so things will probably slow down a bit.

To anyone interested in lyrics, wisteria has kindly translated the theme song. Go check out what the song you've been hearing in the opening theme means. Since last time, also added a letter from the actual director at The Rose's 1 year anniversary (some spoilers involved). Thought it was really sweet of her. There's a lot of interesting writing on this drama, but not much I can read, so if anyone have inspirational thoughts, etc. write down in forum, I'm pretty much alone in there :lol and I'm braindead with memorization of school stuff.

Waaah, gomen, I am so sorry :crazy: ...

will it cheer you up to know that I only joined this forum for the Rose thread and series? Not that a lot of the other doramas aren't nice too, and with my anime addiciton downloading gets really tough.

I can understand that you'd like company but when I'm online I basically only checking the places I already am known at, being employed makes time much more scarce than even school or university did.

Ganbatte everyone connected to this.

All hail the Lady clouds!

There isn't anyone else on this forum that can translate and/or do the subbing/timing that you could send the files to? If I knew Mandarin I'd be all over it, but all I can do is make engrish into english.......hmmmmm.........in college myself and wish it were christmas break already :glare:

I didn't really like ep13 that much cuz I got the impression that ___ thinks she's his gf and that he's cheating on her. I don't know, but 13 wasn't that good as the other episodes.
Thanks again for releasing The Rose. :D

I don't think Bai He? thinks that way... if you follow the dialogue, consider why she was in love with Jin. Notice how there was a flashback to the scene where he asks her what kind of person was the man she liked...

I know, but she acted like a jealous girlfriend. Saying, he should only love Qin. But at the end I get that she wants him to overcome it and not have his memories with Qin ruined by Ya Man. :)

Edit: I don't know what colors to use to highlight the spoiler. Sorry. :glare:

duckie, if you didn't last ep. this next one should be redeeming...

I find what Fu Rong says in this episode 15 really sad, even made a quickie sig when I was reading over it again. Kind of makes me droop everytime, dunno what's so sad about it.

===
Is anyone interested in editing? There's like 2 levels of editing necessary. When I edit it, I'm looking more for content, connotations, whether it goes with the video, etc., then have to go over for grammer, so if someone can commit to the grammer part, it'll probably be speed up the process. If you think you can help out, PM me.. should be confident in English usage & composition. ~700-1000 lines/ep. every 1-3 weeks.

Pretty basic, but common problems I see are subject-verb agreement, verb tense consistency & stuff like that. When you translate so much text, really easy to overlook these stuff.

Sure, I'd like to give it a shot, just compare the Chinese and the English and see if it's correct right? What format, a text file? PM me and we can work out the details?

No, actually, I'm already thankful for being introduced to this dorama in the first place.

Use clubbox. Also, only because clubbox is korean doesn't mean everything uploaded on it is also Korean.
