The Real Story of Hua Mulan

Hua Mulan is a legendary Chinese warrior from the Northern and Southern dynasties period (420โ€“589) of Chinese history.

According to the tale, Hua Mulan, disguised as a man, takes her aged father's place in the army. Mulan fought for twelve years and gained high merit, but she refused any reward and retired to her hometown. - wikipedia
The Ballad of Hua Mulan is set in theNorthern Wei era (386โ€“536). The poem starts with Mulan sitting worriedly at her loom, as one male from each family is called to serve in the army to defend China from Rouran invaders.
Her father is old and weak, and her younger brother is just a child, so she decides to take his place and bids farewell to her parents, who support her. She is already skilled in fighting, having been taught martial arts, sword fighting, and archery by the time she enlists in the army.
After twelve years of fighting, the army returns and the warriors are rewarded. Mulan turns down an official post, and asks only for a camel to carry her home.
She is greeted with joy by her family. Mulan dons her old clothes and meets her comrades, who are shocked that in the 12 years of their enlistment together, they did not realize that she was a woman.

Apparently the live action will stick closer to the Chinese poem and I'm excited to see how it turns out!

I'm all for this!
From what I have seen so far, I am torn.
Could've sworn I read an addition to the story that she was "offered" to be a concubine or was that false to the tale?
i think there is something about a concubine in the story but i really dont remember in what context!
I can't wait!!
I wish I could see it

3 Korean Authors To Add To Your Reading List
I recently made a video about Haruki Murakami, and a few of oyu asked about some Korean authors you might like. Here are 3 and a half suggestions First is Kyungsook Shin, who I haven't read yet. She wronte "Please Look After Mom" which was a huge success internationally. She has had some scandals surrounding her though, because she plagarized a bit of her work from other authors... Now onto the authors I HAVE read! 1. Han Kang Most recently known for The Vegetarian, she writes in a creepy but realistic style. Everything that happens is believeable which makes it so much scarier. I'm about to read her historical fiction piece, Human Acts! 2. Chang Rae Lee I read On Such A Full Sea sometime last year and really enjoyed it. It takes place in a distopian society and is a really interesting look into how we interact with people around us! 3. Young Ha Kim I adore this author and if you're going to read anything on this list make sure you read Black Flower. It is about the true history of hundreds to thousands of Koreans being brought over to Mexico to essentially be slaves on plantations. Its a part of history I never knew about, and Young Ha Kim explains it in a really fascinating way. Have you read any of these authors?! Here are links to the books if you're interested in picking any of them up^^ Young Ha Kim BLACK FLOWER: http://amzn.to/2mltxHU I Have The Right To Destroy Myself: http://amzn.to/2m1fyGG Han Kang The Vegetarian: http://amzn.to/2lLKvOn Chang Rae Lee On Such A Full Sea: http://amzn.to/2m1jEyQ Kyung Sook Shin Please Look After Mom: http://amzn.to/2m1uXqs
Pack food and drinks in this sustainable Lunchbox set!
Charlie and the chocolate factory is an iconic story that both kids and adults alike love. One may have read Ronald Dahlโ€™s creation, the novel of 1964 that become a bestseller, or the 1974 movie starring Gene Wilder as the infamous Willy Wonka, or the most recent one, Tim Burtonโ€™s reimagination of 2005 box-office hit of 2005 that has Johnny Depp as the chocolate chocolatier. Every person has a favorite from these magical stories and today, here I am presenting the set of NICA'S Lunchbox and a Thermos of 2005 Charlie and the chocolate factory edition. This set is a must for the fans of the franchise as it has a lot of characteristics that not only make it a memento of the film but a gift or thing that is useful in real life. The lunchbox features: โ€ขย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  The design What I absolutely adored about this metal box is that the design is not all kiddish. It has the main character of the movie, Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka it is printed on both sides but the colors and the illustrations are not done in a way that only children could use it. People, especially the fans of the story, will like it and have no problem or embarrassment while carrying it, no matter the age. โ€ขย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  The quality of the printing. Coming to the judge on the printing process, on a scale of 10, I would definitely give it a 9. The main reason being that in my past experiences Iโ€™ve seen that most of the metal-made objects lose their illustrations or artwork as they get scrubbed, washed, and whatnot. But even after the use of many months, the printing has not all gotten off. โ€ขย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  Sustainability As I have already pointed out, I have been using this for a long time now and Iโ€™m very happy to say that not only the company has done a good job on the printing but a fine work on their quality inspection as well. The metal doesnโ€™t get bent or scratched easily and the food inside does stay warm for a good amount of time. The drink container/thermos: โ€ขย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  Now, we also get a Thermos with our package and I am pleased to announce that it is amazing in terms of the artwork, quantity hold, and material as well. โ€ขย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  I loved the fact that the picture of the Willy Wonka chosen is different on the lunch and the drink container is different. In this Thermos, we get a more close-up shot of Johnny, and that gives the whole set diversity. โ€ขย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  The lid of the Thermos is like the one that can act as your cup and since the material is spot on, you can pour either very hot or cold beverages in it and it wouldnโ€™t affect the cup at all. I would highly suggest checking out another website to sell stuff other than eBay for other gift sets that people would love to receive.
