[English subtitles are available] [Cry Me A River of Stars] [Ep3] Lord Tao, why did you bring me here? There are a lot of characters that you know. Can you teach me, Uncle Fool? Lord Tao helps me find Fanfan, and I teach Lord Tao to read. Lord Tao, where are the characters? Uncle Fool, wait for me here. Don't run away. Lord Tao, you... My lord, sorry for my incompetence. My lord, I saw Ruby. Ruby? It's just a glance. But I'm sure that was Ruby. Does that mean Ruby is still alive? If Ruby isn't dead, Lian Qi is probably still alive. We need to keep investigating. Today is Qingming Festival. I'm here sending you guys money. I've had a really bad time lately. I became so ugly. The Boat is on the verge of bankruptcy. The Taoist priest said I offended one of you.
So I'll burn more paper money for you. You took my money. Please don't bother me again. Please, I beg you. Please. Mountains shall stop ghosts. No ghost can come. No ghost will come. Dad. Why are you here? Didn't I tell you to wait for me at home? Stupid dad is afraid of being at home alone. He comes out to find Fanfan. Okay, okay. Dad's not afraid. There's nothing to be afraid of. There's some noise. Dad, dad. Dad. We'd better stay out of this. It's so scary. Let's go! Hurry! Hurry! Come on. If you dare to delay today, I can't afford the loss. Boss. Fanfan. Both bodies are burnt black. There are bad guys. Can you sell these? Don't mention it. It really pisses me off. If there had been more dead people these days, who would have dug these two burnt bodies? Dad, let's tell the officer. Go find Lord Tao now. Work harder! Go find Lord Tao. Don't you dare to rest. Do you want to get beaten up? [Tomb of Lian Qi] Who is there? Gentlemen, I see nothing. I... I see nothing. You dare to lie to me? Even if I saw something, I'll never say anything. To me, there's only one kind of person I can trust, the dead in the coffin. Honestly, you have such bad luck. Right now, I'm in dire need of female corpses. Gentlemen. Gentlemen.
What are you doing? Ghost! Boss! There's a ghost! Who? Who's there? Who? I'm afraid of nothing. Come on. My lord! My lord! Have some mercy, my lord! My lord, please spare us. Spare you? Why should I spare you? I... I shouldn't... I shouldn't bully your woman. My woman? But what I'm talking about is not what you're talking about. Please enlighten me. My lord, In the yard, two stolen bodies were found. You stole bodies and sold them for profit. That's illegal. The evidence is solid. Cao Qing. Yes. Arrest them, and wait for trial. Yes. Arrest them. My lord! My lord! My lord! Have some mercy please, my lord! We won't do this anymore. My lord! We won't do this anymore. -Please spare us, my lord! -My lord! Fanfan, Fanfan. -Dad. -Fanfan. And here. Dad, why are you dressed like this? Lord Tao asked me to scare them. Otherwise, I couldn't be part of the game. Thank you, Lord Tao. You should thank your father. Lord Tao! Well... The tomb they dug was Lian Qi's. Lian Qi's tomb? I'm not Azurelander. You are not Azurelander? Tell us. Why did you steal Lian Qi's tomb? Or you're his partner. You stole his tomb, because you wanted something else. My lord.
I stole bodies only for ghost marriage. I just want to earn some money. I have nothing to do with Lian Qi. Lian Qi and I are just a buyer and a seller. Lian Qi bought bodies from you? I found the burnt body and the one sold to Lian Qi are the same one. Are you sure that the corpse is not Lian Qi? The male body I sold to Lian Qi has a damaged skull. And the burnt one's skull has the same damage. If what you said is true, I can mitigate your sentence. Thank you, my lord. Thank you, my lord. My lord. On the body found yesterday, we found the damage exactly as he described. Cherry found the trace of Ruby. Plus what Wu Daqiang confessed just now. Now it's almost certain that Lian Qi is still alive. Here is your dish. Ladies and gentlemen, this is what we've newly developed, Orange Crab. This dish is good for skin, and is perfect for everyone. Here, here. Come here. Give me one. Here. Have a taste, gentlemen. Just one? -You first. -Come on. Here. Let's eat it together. It's so good. If there are any new dishes in the future, I'll be the first to have a taste. Okay. It is so delicious. Fan, your business looks good.
Why are you here? You've developed new dishes lately. Of course I have to be here to support you. It's not the Nuo Dance Festival today. Why do you wear a veil? You know the answer. I'm your guest. Are you worried that I may steal your new recipe? So you treat me with such attitude. My dear, if you really want to learn something, I'm more than willing to teach you. After all, I'm not as selfish as you. You! You! How come you suddenly fell on the ground? Get up now! Your face! How come there are so many pustules on your face? She... When you cooked, did the pus get into the food? Impossible. Don't listen to her. What the hell? How can I eat her food? Go, go, go, go. Let's leave. How could she do that? So nasty! I will never come here again. That's so disgusting. Wait a second. You two. -My lord. -What happened? The owner of the Springtime Pleasure Boat is terribly sick. But she still opens her boat. Now thinking about her cooking, I feel so sick. For money, she has no conscience. My lords, don't eat here. If you are infected, who are you going to talk to? Yeah. So nasty. Now I know. You're here not to support me, but to ruin my business. I'm here to ruin your business. So what? But...
I kinda did a good thing. What if someone is infected by you, what can you do then? I said I was not sick. Why did you frame me? I didn't frame you. Look at yourself. It's hard to convince people that you're not sick. I'm not a pushover. What do you want? Didn't you say I was terribly sick? Did you say my illness is highly infectious? I'll let you have a try first. You... Calm down. My lord! My lord, please help me. My lord. I... I just told people the owner of the Springtime Pleasure Boat is terribly ill. And... And then she intended to get revenge on me. Terribly sick? Revenge? My lord, look. My lord, look at her face. If she were not terribly sick, what could it be? So you took the opportunity to destroy her business. I didn't. I swear. I really just protect innocent people from being infected. She just has a minor illness. It's not infectious. But you exaggerated her condition, spread the rumor maliciously, and destroyed her business. Your intentions are vicious. My lord, I didn't do those. You know exactly what you did. What I hate the most is the scheming in business. All the losses of the Springtime Pleasure Boat today will be paid by you. I... My lord!
Cao Qing. Go with her to take compensation. Yes, my lord. Please. My lord, thank you for claiming justice for me. You don't have to worry about what she said. For the pimples on your face, if you treat them properly, they will go away eventually. I understand. I'm tired. I can't have you here. So please, my lord. They look like a perfect couple. -Look. -Don't talk nonsense. [Brave the Winds and Waves.] The pustules have been there for so many days. Why can't they get better? What should I do? Say goodbye to your regret. Reinvent yourself. You're just a step away from beauty. Your beauty mentor, Dr. Kong. [Fayun Temple, Midland] [Palace of Heavenly King] Master. Master, are you accustomed to the environment here? A Buddhist should quit the Kama. This is a nice place. Master, since you come here and preach here, to Cloud County, it is truly an honor. Since I'm a Buddhist,
I should listen to what Buddha says, and tell the world his words. You came today. I don't think you just want to discuss Buddhism with me. I shall be bluntly open. A friend of mine was drugged, and her face is full of pustules. No doctor can cure her. Master, you are a master of medicine. Can you help her? Your friend took the poison made from a special lilac. That's why she got those pustules. If you couldn't find the cause of it, and failed to give proper treatment, her face would take years to heal. Then do you have any solution? Name? Fan, Li Fan. Age? Eighteen. Marriage status? Single. Occupation? Boat owner. Miss Li. That you came to me is absolutely the right choice. It seems the pustules on your face have been there for a while, right? This way, please. Okay. To cure you, I need to cut out the pustules on your face. Then, apply my specially developed cream all over your face. I promise when you wake up, your face will be as soft as a baby's skin. Cutting out the pustules? Does it hurt? Don't worry. It doesn't hurt at all. Under my anaesthetic, you'll fall asleep right away. When you wake up, all the pain will be over. [Before Surgery, After Surgery]
Okay. Here is our contract. If you have no problem, you can sign it. [Contract] [The surgery is done of my own free will.] Drink it. Everything will be fine after a sleep. Yeah, yeah. Drink it up. Okay. Lie down, please. Lie down. Although her face is full of pustules, she is still a beauty. Who are you? Head of the Bureau of Military Affairs, Tao Junran. My lord, please spare me! My lord, please spare me! My lord, spare me, please! [Sealed] This man practices medicine without any registration. He used surgeries as a cover to dope many girls up and to rape them. That's outrageous! Is he still a human? -Is he still a human? -Even my dog is better than him! -He has no conscience! -Arrest him now! Many girls in the capital were maimed because of him. According to the law, this man will be put in prison immediately. Take him away. So shameless! [Tao Mansion] Lord Tao? Where am I now? I don't know if you really have a brain, or your brain is missing. How can you trust such an obvious liar? Why do you scold me when I just woke up? Scold you? I'm too tired to scold you. If I hadn't been there in time, you would have already been raped. What do you mean?
That doctor always rapes young girls with conducting surgeries as a cover. I really don't know where the wits you used on me are? I... I was so anxious then. Besides, how could I know that man was so bad? You didn't look for registered doctors. You always test your luck. People like you are so easy to get into trouble. Yeah. I'm stupid. I'm silly. But the point is why you are so worried? As the Head of the Bureau of Military Affairs, I have the responsibility to protect people in Cloud County. And that includes you. Then... Thank you, my lord, for saving my life again and again. If you're moved, you can cry. I promise you I will never tell anyone. Cry? I can't cry. You know that, my lord. I'm bad at crying. But still, thank you, my lord. Well... Well... It's getting late now. I'm leaving. Wait. This is for your face. Apply it over your face before sleep. One piece a day. Eight hours a day. After you apply them all, your face will heal. Really? I fear that your ugliness may ruin the image of the county, so I find you the treatment. Thank you, my lord. [Brave the Winds and Waves.] What's the big deal with him? How could he say I was so ugly that I might ruin the county's image? What about you? Can you say that just because you're a lord? What's this? So cute! Since Lord Tao gave me these,
I shall have a try. I'll try you tonight. Little girl, why are you crying? Miss, I stumbled, and that hurt. Don't cry now. We have to be strong. We can't cry just because we stumble. My mom said I was a girl, so I could cry. I envy you for crying. Miss, you... Didn't you cry too? I... They're gone! Since Lord Tao cures me, I should give him some presents. [Tao Mansion] My lord. My lord. Li Fan! How did you get in here? From the old place. Old place? My lord, don't worry. I've lost weight lately. I didn't get stuck in there. What are you doing here? I'm here to express my gratitude to you for curing my face. No need. I have to. I, Li Fan, am a grateful woman. Here. Sorry. Sorry. I'll wipe you clean. -I'll wipe you clean. -No need. Then... Then I'll put the fish in your kitchen. Do you want me to cook it for you? This fish is really fresh. You gotta eat it tonight. -My lord... -I know. Okay. This fish is really fresh. Why does he seem upset? It is really inappropriate. [Tao Mansion]
Miss Li, why are you here again? Where is Lord Tao? You... How did you get in here? Don't care about these details too much. Jailor, I'm telling you. I think Lord Tao is really the patron saint of Cloud County. He saved me, Li Fan, and even cured my face. You tell me. Is he like a father to me? Yeah, yeah, yeah. And his lordship asked for nothing in return, and didn't tell anyone he helped me a lot. How unselfish he is! So, look. I made [My New Father, Tao Junran] [Great Public Servant] this! My new father? Great public servant? Miss Li, you're truly creative. Nice work! My lord. Lord Tao! Look! I'll tell you what. In order to make these flags, I've run the whole morning. My legs are sour. You don't have to do this. But... My lord, you don't like the fish I gave you. This is the only thing I can do for you. I don't need those. My lord, you don't want this one, and you don't want that one either. I don't even know what I can give you. I told you before I saved you just out of my responsibility. So you don't have to do this. Cao Qing, walk her out. Miss Li, please. My lord. Jailor.
Take these. Hey, I... My lord, I'm truly grateful to you. My lord, these... Don't let her in again. Yes. Right. Block the dog's hole. Li Fan gets in from that hole? Then... What if the dog wants to pee or poop? Take care of it yourself. My lord, I'll hang these for you, okay? Great public servant. [Great Public Servant] [Tao Mansion] Lord Tao! Lord Tao! What? Miss, I advise you to save your energy. You'll see. What do you want now? What do you know? Where's his lordship? His lordship is working in the study now. I'll go find him. His lordship doesn't want to see you. You'd better go back. Be serious. If you stop me here, I'll miss the auspicious time. You don't want to marry him, do you? Go! Go! Go away! His lordship won't marry you. My lord. Someone is here. Who's here? She is here.
Li Fan comes here again. She's not here alone. She also brings a table here. She said she would marry you on the spot to express her gratitude. Now, she has been stopped by guards.
