Currently I'm watching The Deer and the Cauldron, I don't know how loyal is the adaptation compare to the novel, therefore I have some questions about WXB based on the novel: 1. WXB's feet were tattooed with "反清复明“ with 反复 on one side and 清明 on the other side. When Kangxi got the report about WXB involvement in Heaven and Earth Society, he then forced WXB to show his feet. And at first WXB the side which showed the 清明 tattoo, and later when he showed the other feet, it was written as 扫墓。 My question is : how could it happen? did WXB re-tattoo his other feet to alter the word? 2. Did WXB really intend to marry Shuang-er at the beginning? Is it mean that his true love is for Shuang-er? 3. Did Princess Jianning really castrated Wu Yingxiong in the novel?
I only know the story from the TVB series starring Tony Leung.
In it, on his sole, there was supposed to be the tattoo 反清复明 - as would all the members of the Heaven and Earth Society members.
When the tattoo was being done, Wei XiaoBao complained about the pain and the tattoo was abruptly stopped, with only the words 清明 done.
When Emperor KangXi checked Wei XiaoBao's soles, those two words were all he could see. When asked, Wei XiaoBao said it was to remind him of the Filial Duty rituals to be performed on 清明 - this being the Sweeping of the Tombs, and 重阳。
I don't remember 重阳 being tattooed on the other sole.
How true this section is to the book, I cannot tell.

Admin: hi guys! I'm adding a new section on the forum. Since so many of good ancient costume series appear in the market, like Nirvana in Fire, etc. A bit touch of wuxia, but not really wuxia. Some are historical fictions with a touch of wuxia,
