Hua Qiangu (Zhao Liying) is an unlucky orphan who is born with a strange scent which attracts demons, and therefore is hated and feared by all the villagers.

In search of her benefactor, Hua Qiangu heads to Mount Changliu, a sect that trains their disciples into becoming immortals. With the help of Bai Zihua, she passes through various trials to become his only disciple. As the two spend more time together, Hua Qiangu falls in love with her teacher, but doesn't reveal her true feelings until the end.

The Journey of Flower

The Journey of Flower (Series)

The Journey of Flower (花千骨, Huā Qiān Gǔ ) is a 2015 Chinese series starring Zhao Li Ying and Wallace Huo . It's based on the novel of the same name by Fresh Guo Guo. A sequel, The Journey of Flower 2 , aired later in 2015, though it has only one of the original main characters and a vastly different setting.

Hua Qian Gu is shunned by her village because she was born with a strange scent that attracts demons. She goes to the Chang Liu Sect for help. Her life quickly becomes more complicated when she falls in love with Bai Zi Hua, the Sect Leader, and discovers she's the descendant of a goddess.

Contains examples of:

  • Accidental Pervert : Qian Gu and Tang Bao use a magic mirror to see what Zi Hua's doing. He's getting ready for a bath, and they're just in time to see him shirtless.
  • Dongfang Yu Qing nicknames Qian Gu "Bones".
  • Qian Gu nicknames Qian Mo "Big Sister" because she mistakes him for a woman.
  • All Love Is Unrequited / Love Dodecahedron : Zi Xun is in love with Zi Hua, who's in love with Qian Gu. Dongfang Yu Qing, Xuan Lang and Qian Mo also fall in love with Qian Gu, who's in love with Zi Hua. Qing Shui is in love with Xuan Lang.
  • A Minor Kidroduction : Qian Gu first appears as a baby in the prologue.
  • Anyone Can Die : Tang Bao, Qian Mo, Shuo Feng, Dongfang Yu Qing , and many others die during the series.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning : Xuan Lang gets one in episode twelve.
  • Bittersweet Ending : Many of Qian Gu's friends are dead by the end. Qian Gu dies but is revived without her memories so she and Zi Hua can start over.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation : The YouTube subtitles fall victim to the "overly-literal translation" variety. Case in point: translating a gate's name as "Water Prosperous Gate". Apparently the subtitler translated each character individually without considering whether the result was coherent.
  • Blood from the Mouth : Often shows up when someone's injured or killed.
  • Burn the Witch! : The villagers attempt to do this to Qian Gu by setting fire to her house.
  • Cool Mask : The master of the Pavilion of Strange Decay (otherwise known as Dongfang Yu Qing ) wears a full-face mask decorated with peacock feathers.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady : Qian Gu mistakes Qian Mo for a woman and calls him "Big Sister".
  • Zi Xun starts wearing dark colours after defecting to the demons' side.
  • Qian Gu starts wearing more make-up and dark red clothes after she becomes a demon.
  • Guyliner : Qian Mo wears a lot of make-up, including eyeliner.
  • Humanity Ensues : Tang Bao, a spirit worm, turns into a human in episode thirteen.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy : It's a Chinese fantasy drama, so all the men have long hair and most of them are very pretty.
  • Love Makes You Evil : Zi Xun's unrequited love for Zi Hua leads to her turning into a demon.
  • Merlin and Nimue / Teacher/Student Romance : Between Qian Gu and Zi Hua.
  • Missing Mum : Qian Gu's mother died when she was born.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero : Qian Gu's efforts to save Zi Hua's life end up reviving the Demon Lord.
  • Open Mouth, Insert Foot : Dongfang Yu Qing attempts to compliment Qian Gu. Instead he accidentally tells her she's simple-minded.
  • Outdoor Bath Peeping : An accidental version: Qian Gu is bathing outdoors when Dongfang Yu Qing stumbles across her. Both of them are mortified.
  • Playing Sick : Xuan Lang and Dongfang Yu Qing both pretend to be sick to get Qian Gu's attention.
  • Princeling Rivalry : Between Xuan Lang and Xuan Cong. Xuan Cong dislikes Xuan Lang and wants to be emperor, while Xuan Lang has no interest in the throne but becomes the next emperor anyway.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning : Qian Mo's eyes briefly flash red when he's especially angry with Zi Hua.
  • Replacement Goldfish : At first Qian Mo treats Qian Gu as a replacement for his dead younger sister. This makes it slightly awkward when he later falls in love with her.
  • Semi-Divine : Qian Gu is the only living descendant of the goddess Nü Wa.
  • Toplessness from the Back : A rare male version. Qian Gu and Tang Bao accidentally spy on Zi Hua while he's undressing and see him shirtless from behind.
  • Viking Funeral : Lu Qiao's body is set on fire, though there are no boats involved.

Kim Jae Joong reflects on 20-year career, how 'Flower Garden' is his 'ultimate expression'

Portrait of Olivia Munson

Gratitude is just one word to describe how Kim Jae Joong feels lately. The Korean singer and actor got his start two decades ago with idol group TVXQ! and has since cemented himself as a pioneer in the overseas industry.

"To be honest, it is a grateful opportunity to be able to stay active for 20 years after debuting," the 38-year-old tells USA TODAY. "This industry is known for a short activity span in average, too, so I am very thankful for being able to push through."

Jae Joong 's career has ebbed and flowed with the Korean entertainment landscape. He made his acting debut and left TVXQ! in 2009. He then would form JYJ . He began releasing solo music in 2013. He's won awards and topped music charts.

But one thing has remained constant through it all: the love and support of his fans.

"I could not have stayed active until today if they didn't support me on the way. I was never alone," Jae Joong shares.

In celebration of his 20th year since debut, Jae Joong released " FLOWER GARDEN " on June 26.

He wanted to convey his "experience, expressions, and love that I received for the last 20 years through songs in this album," Jae Joong says. "I felt like it was my mission to express my gratitude and reminiscence of the past with my own words and music."

"FLOWER GARDEN" paints a vivid image of Jae Joong's years. The flowers represent love and the greater garden symbolizes "my fans' love for me," he explains.

Cultivating 'FLOWER GARDEN'

Jae Joong wrote a majority of the tracks on "FLOWER GARDEN". The album is his first Korean-language release in nearly two years and the first under his own agency, iNKODE Entertainment.

"I was relieved and glad to have different space of expression for each song," he says. "Some might guess that this album is only filled with stories related to love, but it actually carries my consideration on various ways to express my journey for identity and who I have become so far."

With 13 songs (14 including a CD-only track), Jae Joong felt it was the perfect chance to showcase a myriad tones and themes; something he has cultivated with age.

"I don't think my album is a collection of one genre, but rather it is a combination of multiple genres. Through group and solo activities, I've been studying and practicing what I like and what I do well," he explains. "I think this album became the ultimate expression of Kim Jae Joong as a versatile artist."

Jae Joong says in the past, his solo work honed in on the rock genre, and single " Glorious Day " relishes in this expertise.

But another stand out is B-side track, " Don't ." Jae Joong believes the song best symbolizes his mindset. "Its lyrics represents how comfortable I feel now to talk about the pain and hardship I had to deal with in the past, and with a smile."

Reflecting on his career

Jae Joong founded iNKODE in 2023 and serves as its chief strategy officer. As an agency head, Jae Joong's scope has expanded beyond his solo work.

"It is now almost impossible to solely focus on my artistic elements," he shares. "It is a difficult job, but knowing all the process and space behind everything I do allows me to feel more thankful for my work and stay humble."

Jae Joong has experienced industry shifts firsthand and his promotions in South Korea and across Asia have informed how he operates. This has particularly influenced his plans to launch an idol group under iNKODE.

"I am able to educate other artists about different atmospheres and sentiments in various countries directly and indirectly," he says. "I can think and lead the artists in the point of the artist's view, on top of the materialistic business mindset when considering what artists actually need and want."

Jae Joong's journey, however, was not free of challenge. In 2009, he – alongside two other TVXQ!'s original members – filed a lawsuit against their company for contract structure and length, as well profit distribution. This ultimately led to the trio's departure from the group and the formation of JYJ, which saw great success. It brought to light so-called " slave contracts " in the K-pop industry and led to reforms.

"I did not want any other colleagues or juniors to go through (that) as well, so looking back, I'm relieved about the process," Jae Joong reflects. "When you're living in a better world, you have to take that advantage and create something awesome from that. Not everyone has to choose a bumpy road to improve oneself."

One of Jae Joong's biggest takeaways from the last two decades is to not obsess over the past. "As for now, I think it is that I have to take care of my mentality."

Jae Joong's upcoming drama and hopes for the future

Jae Joong is set to return to the screen with the upcoming K-drama "Bad Memory Eraser." The show was filmed about two years ago, so he's happy to see its release. "I think it's a timeless story that all viewers would be able to enjoy gladly," Jae Joong says.

He hopes the drama can serve as an introduction to those unfamiliar with his work. "There was a time when young people, especially in their teens and twenties, don't know much about who I am," he reveals. "This new drama will serve as a chance to showcase myself as an actor Kim Jae Joong to the younger audience, which I am very thankful for."

The Korean music industry has certainly changed since Jae Joong debuted. But the landscape's expansion has allowed for new outlets and opportunities.

"I think that is why there are many various genres and styles of music coming out," Jae Joong says. "The start line itself has broadened; an idol group doesn't necessarily have to start in the domestic market but can freely choose to promote anywhere around the world."

As for his future, Jae Joong wants to remain active.

"I want to set up an example by promoting for a long time myself because I don't want the younger generation to feel scared about their future," he says.

As of my knowledge cutoff in early 2023, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” directed by Martin Scorsese, is an eagerly anticipated film based on the non-fiction book of the same name by David Grann. The distribution rights for the film were acquired by Apple TV+, suggesting that upon its release, it will primarily be available to Apple TV+ subscribers.

At this point, there haven’t been official announcements regarding the availability of “Killers of the Flower Moon” on other streaming platforms or a wider digital release. Should Apple choose to follow a similar strategy as with previous releases, there may also be a limited theatrical release to qualify for award considerations or to cater to cinephiles preferring the big-screen experience.

Every step is a flower in jae joong’s new album ‘flower garden’.

  • Share to Facebook
  • Share to Twitter
  • Share to Linkedin

The singer-actor has a new album, a new drama and a new film.

Kim Jae Joong is very happy these days. It’s easy to guess that much from the songs on his new album Flower Garden, an album that honors his 20 years of making music. The actor and singer, who performed with mega k-pop groups TVXQ and JYJ before launching a successful solo career, titled his latest album Flower Garden, because it represents his journey as an artist.

“I really wanted to express the meaning that every step of the way represents a single flower,” said Jae Joong. “When gathered together it creates a flower garden.”

Jae Joong has described the album’s compellingly upbeat song, I Am U, as a love song for the fans who loved and supported him on that journey. The lyrics ask fans to look back at the “dazzling and radiant moments” they’ve shared and offers some hints as to what those moments might be.

“If you take a closer look at the lyrics of I Am U, you're going to notice that the song lyrics contain the titles of the songs that I released as TVXQ, as JYJ and as a solo artist as well,” he said. “So it’s more of a memoir or a memory box of everything that I've done for the last 20 years and it's really about looking back in the past. That’s how I and my fans can really reconnect through this song, we can really look back at our memories together. I think this song not only sends a thank you message for my fans, but also provides nostalgia for all of us.”

Jae Joong worked on 10 tracks of this album.

“Mostly I participated in the lyrics, because I wanted to really tell my stories,” he said. ‘ Flower Garden is a special album, as it’s my 20th anniversary album, and I thought it was more important than anything to really carry my experience, my message and my story through this very special album. It didn't really make sense for me to sing about the experiences of other people.”

The lyrics to the album’s equally bright song Glorious Day are all about blue skies, magic and how “every day is fine.” Even the lyrics of the wistful melodic Rain Shower has Jae Joong saying that he’s happy. Yes, it is a reflection of his current state of mind.

“These days I'm really trying to keep that positive and happy mindset in general,” he said. “And I feel that way too. In this album there are some more melodic and more sentimental songs as well, but ultimately the goal that those songs convey and the message that I want to express is that our ultimate goal is to become happy and to have fun in life. So that's why there are lyrics like ‘I'm happy’ in Rain Shower, and as you can probably tell, I'm very happy these days.”

Flower Garden also features the edgy rock dopamine hit titled Dopamine, in which he sings about joy to the distinctive guitar licks of Japanese rock legend Miyavi.

“I was born in the 80s and that generation was heavily impacted by Japanese arts and entertainment back then,” said Jae Joong. “Maybe that's why there are lot of artists that I really like from Japan, and I've done a lot of collaboration with Japanese artists in the past.”

Jae Joong is also very popular in Japan, where three of his studio albums Flawless Love (2019), Love Covers (2019), and Love Covers II (2020) peaked at number one on the Oricon Albums Chart. Dopamine was his first collaboration with Miyavi.

“I really like his style and I really like his music, but we've never done a collaboration before,” said Jae Joong.” That’s why I decided to call him up myself and ask for a collaboration. Thankfully he gladly took that offer. We actually had dinner together and it was just a very entertaining process to work on music with him. I haven't really gotten to see him after the album was completed, but I'm planning to go to Japan and say hi to him once again.”

Not only does Jae Joong have a long resume as a singer, but he’s acted in multiple dramas and films. Between 2010 and 2017 he appeared in Protect the Boss, Dr. Jin , Triangle, Spy and Manhole. His newest drama Bad Memory Eraser, which was filmed in 2022, will air on August 2. In this drama he plays Lee Goon, a man who used to be a promising tennis player, but who lost his self-confidence after he had to quit playing. After a memory eraser cancels his bad memories, he temporarily feels better about himself, but it can’t last. Jae Joong chose Bad Memory Eraser because the story seemed comfortable and upbeat.

“It's more like something you can just enjoy without feeling pressured or being burned by it,” he said. “Because I know there are viewers who are just thirsty for such a storyline and such a comfortable, lighthearted drama.”

He felt attracted to his character because of Lee Goon’s complicated feelings.

“He’s very confident because he's just filled with good, happy memories,” said Jae Joong. “But as he recovers those bad memories, he feels ashamed. Sometimes he goes through a lot of hardships and he feels lonely among people at the same time. So that really leads him to grow even further as an individual. I could really resonate with how he feels because there are two sides of this character and to myself as well. One is this top superstar who's always confident and who's always shining, but then there's another person who's humble and timid. And I can feel really lonely from time to time. I think the character in this drama seemed very charming to me because this character really shows dual sides at the same time.”

As well as appearing in dramas, Jae Joong also appeared in the films Heaven’s Postman in 2009 and Jackal is Coming in 2012, as well as a documentary about his life titled Jaejoong: On The Road. His latest film role is playing a sophisticated, shaman in the horror film, Shrine , helmed by the award-winning Japanese director Kazuyoshi Kumakiri. The film was Jaejoong’s first foray into the horror genre.

“I was very curious to know what it feels like to be in such a genre as an actor,” he said. “And also another special part about this movie is that the production is Korean, but all the writers, staff and the direction is coming from Japanese teams. So it's a combination. It's a collaboration between the Korean team and the Japanese team. I really wanted to experience that because I knew that it was going to create something unique and was going to be a special experience for me as well.”

He filmed the drama Manhole after fulfilling the mandatory military duty that’s required of all South Korean males. Then he took a long break from acting, questioning who he wanted to be and wondering what to do next. He considered studying in the U.K.

“I was really seriously considering that, but then I started to get more really good offers and great opportunities in Japan. So, I focused more on the Japan activities and that actually helped me to change, to think differently about my identity and how my life would take a turn. That’s why I decided to found my own company and be focused on maybe raising another group or educating other artists, junior artists.”

He founded the agency iNKODE in 2023 together with CEO Noh Hyun-tae, the former vice president of Cube Entertainment. As chief strategy officer of iNKODE, Jaejoong will focus on producing new artists.

“There were a lot of different turns I needed to take in life,” said Jae Joong. “But now the drama that I filmed about two years ago is about to air. So I'm very grateful and I'm really looking forward to that.”

He’s also been busy hosting Jaefriends, aka Jae Joong and Friends. On each episode he cooks a little and invites celebrity guests to chat and sample his creations. Guests have included actress Han Hyo-joo, his co-star in Heaven’s Postman , Choi Soo-young of Girls Generation, CNBlue’s Jung Yong-hwa, Epik High’s Tablo, Mamamoo’s Moon Byul and a few up-and-coming k-pop idols, such as the members of Enhyphen. His goal with the show was to make 100 friends.

“The whole purpose of that program is for me to interact with many people from various backgrounds and from different industries in public, not just meeting people in private. Now we have a lot of guests who are more into the k-pop or idol industry, and thankfully, a lot of their fans now get to know more about me through that program, which I am very glad and excited about too.”

As well as promoting his new drama and film, he’s going on a Flower Garden tour . So many creative endeavors are a lot to juggle, but when asked if he would give up on any of it, Jae Joong smiles. He’s very happy with the way things are.

Ghosts: What Happened To Flower In Season 3 Explained

Ghosts season 4: release date, cast, story & everything we know, the boys season 4 finale's mid-credits scene cameo & what that means for homelander explained by antony starr, how ghosts season 4 will build on season 3's huge cliffhanger teased by showrunner.

  • Showrunner Joe Port says that Ghosts may reveal Sasappis' cause of death in season 4.
  • Solving the main spirits' deaths may open up new storylines.
  • The show has showcased various strange and tragic deaths of its characters.

A new tease regarding Ghosts season 4 reveals the next spirit whose death could be revealed. Even though it's known for being one of the lighter and more traditional comedies on television, the popular CBS sitcom could go to occasionally dark and serious places. This was the case early on, as it revealed the sadness behind the death of Trevor (Asher Grodman). It is also true in the third installment, which revealed how Hetty (Rebecca Wisocky) dies. According to a new update, it may well continue into Ghosts season 4 .

TVLine shared a quote from co-showrunner Joe Port, who hinted that Sasappis (Román Zaragoza) may be the next spirit whose death is unveiled . Port, who serves as showrunner along with Joe Wiseman, mentioned that it's one arc that the writers' room has considered for some time. Read his comment below:

“We’ve been talking a lot about [revealing the cause of] Sas’ death, and we have something that we like. I wouldn’t be surprised if we got into that [next] season.”

Ghosts Season 4 Could Finally Move On To The Next Part Of The Show

Sasappis is the show's last remaining mystery..

The benefit that Sam (Rose McIver) has of communicating with ghosts means that she can help them cross over to the afterlife, which the sitcom hilariously describes as ' getting sucked off .'

Considering the likelihood that season 4 will have an episode or even a storyline focused on Sass' death, it will conclude all the mysteries surrounding the main spirits. It may be the case that the CBS sitcom will move on to the next part of its storytelling. The benefit that Sam (Rose McIver) has of communicating with ghosts means that she can help them cross over to the afterlife , which the sitcom hilariously describes as ' getting sucked off .' But it's difficult to achieve that closure without knowing how each character perished to begin with. Sass, typically the most detached and levelheaded among the main spirits, remains the only mystery.

Every Main Death In Ghosts Explained

There have been some strange deaths..

Although usually operating with a light touch, Hetty's revelation is handled with the seriousness it deserves.

The CBS comedy, which is based on the British show of the same name, has already pulled back the curtain on the varying deaths of the Ghosts characters . Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones) died of dysentery two weeks after the siege of Fort Ticonderoga. The singer Alberta (Danielle Pinnock) was murdered, and solving the mystery of her death became a key point in Ghosts season 2. As for the upbeat and optimistic Pete, he was accidentally shot through the neck with an arrow.

Ghosts features an ensemble of human and spirit characters and one of the most notable is Flower, who ends up leaving the show in season 3.

Trevor, one of the more contemporary ghosts, died in 2000 from a drug overdose. Flower (Sheila Carrasco) died when a bear mauled her. Her fellow spirit boyfriend, Thorfinn (Devan Chandler Long), was struck by lighting. The most recent reveal of Hetty was the most tragic, as she ended her own life because of the belief that it would ultimately save her child. Although usually operating with a light touch, Hetty's revelation is handled with the seriousness it deserves.

Ghosts season 4 will premiere on Thursday, October 17, at 8:30 ET on CBS.
