JotMK #9 - Skin Quilt & the return of Embroidered Balls
Today we meet a monk named Xuanzang and find out the circumstances of his birth and early life. It's not a particularly happy story.
This episode is quite a dark one and features murder, suicide, attempted infanticide, capital punishment, dismemberment, disembowelment and forced marriage. In addition it's all humans doing this to each other rather than godly beings, which I think makes it feel a bit more real. For me anyway.
I mispronounced Yin Wenjiao's name for the entire episode, even more than I usually butcher the names. There should be an "n" in her name and I completely missed it. Whoops.
