[Review/Recap] Legend of Chusen Episode 55 (end)

# of episodes: 55

Chinese name: 青云志

Watch raw here.

The battle between good and evil finally began and the drama is finally ended!! (Just took about 3 months and 2 weeks for this to happen..that’s all).

The battle began with Tian Buyi facing off Guiwong, Xueqi to Biyao, and Xiaofan to WanDumen. Just as Tian Buyi was losing to Guiwong, Xiaofan jumped into defend his shifu. Guiwong flung him around like a kid playing his barbie and knocked him down. All of a sudden, DaoXuan flew in with the Sword of Zu (and his bloody injury) and face off with Guiwong, injuring him as a result.

Instead of finishing off Guiwong, DaoXuan decided to turn his swords toward Xiaofan stating that Xiaofan will be an even greater threat to the world with his power from Qinyun and Tian Yin. Time froze as the Sword of Zu slowly came down at Xiaofan.

Seeing what was happening, Biyao broke out of the frozen time and flew to defend Xiaofan. With her bell charm, she hoped to shield Xiaofan from the sword but the sword pierce through the shield and right through her. (the scene that I’ve been anticipating the most…for 3 months…54 episodes…lasted…. only….40 seconds….?) 

Just like the well predicted, Biyao slowly fell down toward the shocked and frozen Xiaofan. (Xiaofan…why do you more dead than Biyao…? and how is it all you can do is lay there and stare..? and why are you laying down anywayz?)

With no explanation, Xiaofan is now back at Guiwong’s headquarter and slumping over Biyao’s death.  In Xiaofan and Guiwong’s conversation, Guiwong told Xiaofan that he can leave if he wants. He only saved him out of Biyao’s wish. Guiwong hoped to use the magical rock that saved Xiaofan before to save Biyao. But in order for her body to last that long to get to Yudu, a person that loves her must use a powerful magic to extend her life force for 7 days. Xiaofan volunteered (you’re too late buddy!)

During the process where absolute concentration was needed for Xiaofan and Guiwong, Changsong and Yu Yanzi took this chance to finish off Guiwong so that they can control his sect. Luckily Qinlong was there to defend Xiaofan and Guiwong. Guiwong came out afterwards to chase them off.

Qinyun and Guiwong sects regrouped to discuss future plan. Xueqi suggested that they leave the evils sects alone so that they can fight each other while Daoxuan recuperate.

Wuyan continued to ally with Guiwong as Guiwon promised to find the antidote to his poison. Wuyan said no matter what his wishes for Biyao to live is not much weaker than Xiaofan’s. (Sorry kinda skipped this part. Too much talking)

The last 2 minutes of the series, we see Xiaofan back at the tree where he promised to roast a rabbit for Biyao everyday. He asked Biyao to wait for him. His hallucination of Biyao smiled at him and told him that she will wait for him. THE END!


Chexmix: My thought?  Just that I will not be watching season 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 if they ever make more. Last rant: HOW CAN THEY ENDED BIYAO IN JUST 40 SECONDS!! with no explanations, shock faces, mourning (even though she’s not dead), or anything. If it was me, I would have ended the drama with Biyao falling onto evil eye Xiaofan cause that last 40 minutes was such a drag (like the rest of the drama). Lol.  Ranting aside, I did enjoy the graphics and OST of this drama a lot! Glad it finally ended tho.

  3. Good job recapping until the end *moved*
    Seriously, this drama started with so much hype, messed up the whole production/post-production phase and dragged the whole story. Even the cast couldn’t save it for me at that point. Good thing it ended and hopefully, there will be no season 2 (especially no ZLY in it, she deserves better!)
    I just feel sorry for all the original novel fans who were so excited for this drama at first..

    • Lol. Thanks. It took a lot of patient but I’m glad the series finally ended too. I hope she doesn’t come back for season 2 too….

  4. even BY dying was underwhelming, they killed all the tension with the follow up. I was expecting XiaoFan to go crazy or something but nope. Ghost King even had to kidnap him. Honestly this drama was such a letdown in every level.

  5. I agree that the ending could have been tied up a lot better like how xiaofan just woke up at evil hq, like huh? Wtf just happened? maybe it was the editing…

    And I also didn’t like how he just laid there expressionless they could shot that scene better.

    But overall I loved this series, especially the OST and ofc ZLY.

    Can’t wait for S2

  6. It is such a let down. The ending is just terrible. They should fire the person responsible for the editing and cutting. The story was really promising and I watched until the end. But the ending is leaving such a bad taste. The actors and actresses in this really do deserve something more decent. I mean, with that kind of ending, who would be motivated to continue and have the urge to watch the Part 2??????? Awwwwwwww……

  7. Ahh, the most memorable scene in the book. Late to the game, but there is how things went down in the book. Personally, I think the drama version is forcing its emotions too much, but end up somewhat failing at it. Also keep in mind that Biyao’s sacrifice is about 1/3 of the way through the book, and majority of the book is about the length Xiao Fan/Gui Li will go trying to revive and Xue Qi’s struggle to face Xiao Fan as her enemy. Zhuxian actually has a literary style in its prose and it is dotted with many poetic sentences, a rarity in modern Xianxia. I’ll try my best to translate the original and you’ll be the judge on how well the drama did it.

    当下道玄真人拼起最后灵力,刹那间天空中所有彩色气剑一起大放光芒,尤其是阵法的七彩主剑,更是赫然又大了一半,轰然而响,震动天地,如远古天神狂怒一般冲了下来,直向张小凡打来!
    Daoxuan using his last magical power, combines all of swords Qi into the Seven coloured Zhuxian sword. With thouderous sounds, it is coming towards Zhang Xiaofan like titans of the past.
    “啊!”且不说魔教中人失色,便是正道中人,天音寺与青云门中众人无不变色,田不易与苏茹脸色苍白,田灵儿惊叫一声,晕了过去。
    “Ahh!”Not only the demon sects are in shock, even people of the righteous sect was in shock of disbelief. Tian Buyi and Shu Ru face are white, Tian ling’er faints into the ground.
    而在旁边,陆雪琪紧紧握住天玡神剑,面无血色,连带著手中的天玡也微微颤抖。
    Beside then, Lu Xueqi tightly holding the Heavenly Sword of Tianya, face white without a trace of blood, her sword shaking in her hand.
    那一道惊天巨剑,当头击下,未到地面,咯咯巨响已然发出,张小凡附近一丈方圆地面尽数迸裂,狂风呼啸,将他笼罩其中,已是必死局面。
    The sword is not even close to the ground, yet cracks already appear all around him. A wild wind envelopes him, nothing other than sudden death now awaits hime.
    张小凡瞪红双眼,人为无形剑气笼罩,挣脱不得,心中悲愤恨意难以抑止,眼睁睁看著天空那柄恐怖巨剑带著无边杀意迅疾落下,张口狂呼。
    Zhang Xiaofan ‘s eye stood still, his body surround by the sword’s Qi, unable to escape. He could look at sword’s murderous aura as it is coming for him.
    “啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊……”
    “Ahhhhhhh….”
    这声音震动四野,天地变色,唯独那诛仙奇剑却仿佛是诛灭满天神佛的无情之物一般,依旧毫不容情地向他击来,眼看著张小凡就要成为剑下亡魂,粉身碎骨。
    This sound shook the earth, yet the sword is unyielding, for it is a weapon that will kill the gods and Buddha himself with heart or regret. It is still coming for him, his fate now sealed: he will shatter into ten thousand pieces.
    忽地,天地间突然安静下来,甚至连诛仙剑阵的惊天动地之势也瞬间屏息……
    Suddenly, all heaven and earth has become quiet, even the thunderous Zhuxian Sword spell seems to hold its breath.
    那在岁月中曾经熟悉的温柔而白皙的手,出现在张小凡的身边,有幽幽的、清脆的铃铛声音,将他推到一边。
    That familiar and loving hand appears beside Zhang Xiaofan, with mystical, crisp sound of bells, pushed him aside.
    仿佛沉眠了千年万年的声音,在此刻悄然响起,为了心爱的爱人,轻声而颂:
    A incantation, silent for ten thousand years, now lightly recounts for the beloved.
    九幽阴灵,诸天神魔,以我血躯,奉为牺牲……
    “The Sprits in the nine steps of Hell, The Gods and Demons in all heavenly realms. With my blood and body, as a sacrifice….”
    她站在狂烈风中,微微泛红的眼睛望著张小凡,白皙的脸上却仿佛有淡淡笑容。
    She stood in the howling winds, with a red eye looking lightly at Zhang Xiaofan, her face white as ghost, yet showing a hint of smile.
    那风吹起了她水绿衣裳,猎猎而舞,像人世间最凄美的景色。
    The wind is flapping her green dress, as if in a dance. It is the saddest and most beautiful scenery in the world.
    张小凡的心沉了下去。
    Zhang Xiaofan’s heart sunk.
    突然,他张开了口狂呼,却被狂风逼了回来;他疯了一般跃起扑向碧瑶,却被神秘气息弹开,血红的双眼中流出了红色的泪,淌过他的脸颊。
    Suddenly, he tries to speak, but the wind stops him; He crazily lead towards, yet was bounced back by a mysterious force. His eye filled with red tears, slowly running across his cheeks.
    那个风中的女子,张开双臂,向著满天剑雨,向著夺尽天地之威的巨剑。
    The girl in the wind opens her arms, face a sword seemly capable of destroying the entire world.
    ……三生七世,永堕阎罗,只为情故,虽死不悔…… 剧烈的狂风突然转了方向,变成了围绕在碧瑶身边的巨大漩涡,那个婉约而美丽的女子被狂风推上半空,迎著那七彩流转的巨剑。
    “Three Lives and seven worlds, forever cast in the realm of Asura, for love its only cause, in death I shall not regret….” The howling wind suddenly changed its direction, forming a gigantic vortex around Biyao. That delicate, yet beautiful girl was hurled up in the air, in the path of that seven coloured sword.
    她是那一刻,天地间唯一的光彩!
    In that moment, she was in the light between Heaven and Earth.
    片刻……
    In moments….
    无数的血色雾气从她的体内瞬间喷出,在她身前凝做晶莹如红玉的血墙,同时白皙面容之上,飘出九道若隐若现的轻烟,融入血墙之中。
    Countless blood cloud appears out of her body, forming a jade like crimson wall in front of her. At the same time, from her pale face, nine purple smoke steams out and shoots inside that wall of blood.
    那血墙瞬间沸腾,如炽热的痴情之火燃烧不止,带著所有的热情绝望焚烧,爆发出无与伦比的灿烂光辉,逆天而上!
    That blood wall suddenly boils, heated by the flames of love, heated by all the fires of romance and fires of heartaches…. It casts an exquisite ray of light, against the heavens.
    与那诛仙主剑,轰然相撞!
    And collapse with Zhuxian main sword
    灿烂的光辉如此耀眼,没有人可以睁开眼睛。
    and light so bright, no one dared to open their eye.
    无法用言语形容的巨响,震动了整个天际苍穹,势不可挡的诛仙剑倒飞而回,满天的气剑一阵紊乱。而在通天峰上,山峰巨震,乱石横飞,山体之上如割裂一般出现了无数巨大裂痕,仿佛末日到临。
    The sound cannot be described in words, shook the entire universe. The seemly invisible Zhuxian sword now flies backwards, it’s focus sword qi is now whirling mess. On the Tongtian peak, montains shook, rocks dislodges, countless cracks appears on the cliff face. It is as though the end of the world is coming.
    隐约中,一个苗条而凄婉的身影,从半空中缓缓落下。
    Almost invisibly, a thin and tragic body slowly falls gently back to earth.
    天地间,忽然全部安静下来,只有一个声音,撕心裂肺一般的狂吼著。
    In all heaven and all earth, all is silent; only one voice reverberates in between.
    “不啊……”
    “No………”
    无尽的黑暗,笼罩著整个世界,他在黑暗中发抖,不敢动弹,不敢面对,不敢醒来!
    A infinite darkness envelopes the world. He shivers, does not dare to move, does not dare to face, does not dare to wake up.
    可是,他终究还是醒了!
    Yet, he still woke up.
    颤抖的手,慢慢的握紧,再放开,慢慢的,睁开眼睛,仿佛这样,也需要他全部的勇气。
    His shivering arms, slowly embraces, and slowly opens, his eye gradually opens, facing this reality took his entire courage.

    • Wow! Thanks for that translation! This definitely gave me some closure for the drama. Chinese is such an artful language. You did a good job translating it!
      I have to say tho, Chusen is a very beautiful drama. The scenario where Biyao died was also very well pretty and well made but the cuts of it left a bad taste. They transitioned her death to abruptly.
