[Mainland Chinese Drama 2017] Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世,十里桃花

Recommended Posts

so i am on ep 44, and here is my takeaway...

 

the best fighter in this whole world is the Fox King, Bi Quian' s father..

 

He alone did what heavenly lord's 2 sons couldn't, and which took male lead, second male lead, second male lead's sister, his wife, ghost tribe army, KM powerful student 16...  and for which clearly all other old leaders are too old to fight :P 

 

Fox kingdom for the win!

While it has been very clear from the beginning who the "hero" is... in terms of physical appearance in episode 1,

 

I am guessing, Dijun's role was more than the second love story. In the sense, we are told repeatedly, how he is one of the oldest and most powerful god who has retired, why he is so unattached.

If one starts mapping his personality and thought process to Ye Hua, one can see the similarities.

 

Couple this analysis with the information provided to us

1. When Dijun is walking with another god talking about his calamity trial.. and the other person mentions how most of the old gods are "dead"

2. THe lotus was given to a very very powerful revered god Mo Youn to take care of.. 

3. We know souls attach themselves to any living object

4. Someone like Dijun can fall in love (with a certain type of personality , that shows the contrast of lovers)

5. We know since ep1 that a very revered, serious master fell in love with BQ (and basically anyone who spends time with her falls in love with her)

6. THe way " talking" plays the role in 1st lifeline and 2nd lifeline

 

I haven't yet completed the series , still in 40s... but pretty sure.. other than the reveal of who the real lead is.. i am pretty sure.. he is the soul of some real powerful god.. maybe better than Dijun

Well, they changed it from what happened in the book. But even in the drama, Ye Hua says if it weren’t for protecting Li Jing and his wife, he would have easily defeated the 4 beasts and not gotten his arm eaten. In the book, his arm was injured because the 4 beasts were powerful - the other people were not present, he was there by himself. And the Fox King was also heavily injured when he first got the Divine Grass.

oh comeon, he had the advantage of them fighting and tiring the demons.. he had help , it wasn't that he was fighting alone.. and neither were his fights that awesome!..

 

with that regard, centuries old (much much older than YH) Fox king got the weed without killing the demons, without getting hand ripped off .. 

 

lol.. this whole scenario is funny for me!

 

I think fox clan has their priorities, intelligence well sorted out.. romance comes first, kids later, monogamy, no nonsense rituals, free kingdom, drink and merry..

Just recently started watching 10 Miles and got hooked so I binge watched it and am now on ep 49... 

 

@enigmatic_zephy I agree, Fox Clan seems to have it all figured out compared to Celestial Kingdom. It also amazes me that there doesn't seem to be any conflict in the Fox clan - everyone seems to know where they stand and abide by it. 

 

I never read the book so I don't know how the drama compares to it. But I do know that there aren't very many gods who are able to retrieve the divine fungi and even Fox King came back severely injured. I think to some extent, Ye Hua had a much more difficult task because not only did he need to retrieve some of the fungi but he also needed to eliminate the 4 beasts, destroy the remaining fungi and then sink the island. Fox King only needed to retrieve some fungi and it doesn't show how he did it.. who knows, he could've done it sneakily and maybe didn't have to face all 4 beasts? LOL

This drama is basically a version of dharma and greg..

 

the upper rich class with their "customs" and "etiquettes" Vs the hippie family..

 

Hippie family wins :D:D 

 

(come to think, it truly is dharma and greg.. lady is weird but smart at the same time, hero is from the rich but repressed society) :P

@redfoxprincess may I also please ask for a copy of Ye Hua's epilogue if you still have it and if it's not too much trouble?

@enigmatic_zephy and BQ also speaks her mind freely while YH likes to keep things bottled up. 

 

I enjoy Ye Hua the most when he is relentlessly and aggressively pursuing BQ to make her fall in love with him again.

actually i fell in love with the unconditional love shown in first few episodes itself.. he keeps referring to MY as MY so it was clear from the beginning that he is the lotus.. and it was just wonderful..

 

and the scene when he is telling BQ.. he is scared because he has to take birth and he will forget about her..

 

For him, from the 1st time he took birth (no before his birth), she literally is the only and first woman he ever laid eyes on.. he hasn't even seen his mother's face (died in the womb right)

and i like the nuance of the third life , 1st encounter..

 

he sees her.. and almost immediately notices her tapping fingers, fan on nose, the scar.. literally there has never been a second where he fell for someone else evne for a split second..

 

and in the last phase when he went to mortal world.. again he saw the figurine but immediately knew she wasn't BQ

 

****************

 

However, greater than his, is BQ's impression of him

Simply, because he always remembered her.. but she forgot him and still didn't confuse him with her master... or master with him

@enigmatic_zephy I actually really liked that scene when he was watching her at the Eastern Sea and recognized all of her mannerisms. It just showed that he knew her and that he paid such close attention to her even when she was just a mortal. I love too that he knows her so well and can predict how she will act and he takes steps to protect her. 

 

And yes, I love too that BQ knew the difference between MY and YH. It’s really sweet that her heart still loved him even though she lost her memories. I also think it was so lovely that of all the disciples at Kunlun, she was the only one who took note and took care of the lotus.

who knows maybe others did too :P

but then the man in the flower wouldn't care for the men taking care of it, would they?

 

I was reading somewhere, the author was in a controversy where it was claimed that TMoPB is plagiarized from 2 stories, one being a boy love/gay novel where a student (male) takes care of a lotus and thereby spanning the ages of love story

@enigmatic_zephy Lol! I read that somewhere too. I don’t know for sure since I’ve never read the books. I’m just enjoying TMoPB the way it is. 

 

But yes you’re right, the lotus wouldn’t react the same way if it were the other disciples caring for it. Lol

Just finished watching TMoPB and here are my thoughts:

 

  • I’m truly blown away by how much Ye Hua loved Su Su/Bai Qian. I like how it showed how their love transcended time and trials. Ye Hua loved her before he was born, when he was still a golden lotus. It’s too bad he doesn’t realize he has known her before he met her at mount Junji.
  • It’s interesting that YH and MY are twin brothers who fell for the same woman and she loved them both - one as her master and the other as her beloved. Both YH and MY made sacrifices for her and both died for her. She sure is one lucky gal!
  • I am happy that our OTP got their happy ending - they deserved it! Honestly I’d be so heart broken if they didn’t end up together..lol
  • Although YH and BQ got their happy ending, I feel sad for everyone else who didn’t like Dijun and Feng Jui and Zi Lan and Yan Zhi. 
  • It hurt me to see MY wake up after 70,000 years only to find out that he had lost his beloved seventeenth to his twin. I especially felt so sorry for him when he told her that the reason he spent 70,000 years piecing his spirit together for “the one I cared about” and BQ didn’t even realize what he meant. MY had always been this composed, confident high god, revered by all deity and he looked so wounded when he found out BQ was in love with YH. Ugh the look on his face when BQ was telling him that she would have stayed with him forever had he not died.. and her saying “Ye Hua hadn’t appeared then...” and MY responding “yes, Ye Hua had not appeared then”. You could really feel his sadness at what he had lost.
  • I couldn’t help but feel sorry for Li Jing as well. Sure, he messed up big time but he spent the rest of his life pining for BQ. Until the very end, he still wanted her unharmed. 
  • Ugh and I also felt for Dijun and Bai Feng Jui! I found their story beautiful as well. At first I found FJ childish and annoying. But she kinda grew on me with her innocence, her love for her aunt and her devotion to Dijun. I ached for them both - loving each other so much but could never be together. Why oh why did Dijun erase his name from the rock of Three Incarnatons?! That scene where FJ asks him whether he would have fallen for her had he not erased his name from the rock and his answer... gah! SO painful.
  • I was a little disappointed that the show didn’t show us more of BQ and A-Li together. I was expecting BQ to be overcome with emotion after she gets her memories back and realizes that A-Li is her son. I would have expected her to have rushed to see him and spend more time with him. I was also disappointed that she didnt spend much time with him after YH died. The poor kid had to suffer alone. And because the show did such a great job showing us how good of a father YH is, it almost made BQ seem  like a terrible mother.
  • Considering Su Jin loved YH and was by his side since he was born, I can understand why she’d be upset over losing him to another woman. But I still hate her. Also, how did she not see that all the pain she caused Su Su only hurt YH more? She was hell bent on getting rid of Su Su that she failed to see YH suffer because of it. 
  • I found some aspects of the show a little confusing like the difference in hierarchy, how they attained higher statuses, whether all deity underwent trials to ascend, how they die if they are considered immortals... also, if the rock of Three Incarnations contained their “fated mates” and cannot be changed, how come no one bothered to just go there to see who they’re meant to be with? Lol
  • I wish we got one more extra episode letting us see YH and BQ together after marriage, spending time with A-Li and maybe having another child. They went through so much together and I just wanted some more scenes of just pure fluff and love and happiness. Lol

wait a minute,

in that case.. is yang mi's voice yang mi's and MZ's MZ in ten miles?

No, their voices were dubbed by other people. I think the same woman also dubbed Yang Mi’s voice in Legend of Fuyao. The man who dubbed Mark Chao is quite famous. If you scroll back the previous pages, someone posted a link to him.

 

I enjoyed the drama when it was being broadcast last year. I still occasionally watch Ep. 30, my favourite episode.

wow.. the voices are one big part of the character..

 

quite honestly i loved the voice first , MZ's acting took some time..

 

and YM's voice is deadly.. the way she says YW lovingly.. its one b'ful voice

(bts sounds similar though)

 

Smart china, forcing upon an industry.. creates new jobs and more work for voice artists

Ques: what are the rules regarding making love in mortal form vs god form?

like virginity returns or not?

otherwise the women in the heavenly realm unnecessary talk about marriage and chastity..

 

and what this also means is that YH did not care that master Mo yuan will not get his disciple Si yin virgin..  :P
