Relating to the title Pillow Book, these sentences are on the preface of the novel.

 

天命无缘,却结一段奇姻,

枕上无书,竟成一本情谱。

 

Loosely translated, it said "Not written in destiny, yet this strange relationship is born", "There's no book on the pillow, yet a love script exists."

 

Can't find much on why the novel is called 枕上书 or Pillow Book but i came across a ref in this old japanese book. It's a collection of personal writings and daily observations...meant only for the writer's eyes. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pillow_Book

 

In a way, it is like a diary. So perhaps the "pillow book" here means the 2 chars didn't "write" diary where they would fall in love with each other (they didn't expect it)....but still, a script about their love came into existence.

 

Lastly in the novel, there's a part on world of dream....perhaps related to pillow, sleep etc.

 

**********


I wonder if the actor as Si Ming, the follower of Dong Hua will be the same one or not. His acting is quite good.

Thanks for the explanation @Cedric Ong.

I wish they keep the same actors from TMPB. I like Si Ming and the third Prince. It would feel different if they were played by someone else.

Agree 3rd prince was very funny in 3w3lpeach, he will be even more funny hanging out with little dough and DH, so  I Would prefer to see the same actor, same about Si meng

I know there are no news on the other cast yet. But someone asked "Cheng Yu" (actress Wang Ting 王汀) on 25 Jan in her weibo....if she would be in the Pillow Book, Wang Ting replied a smiling face....w/o saying yes or no.

* All in chinese.

https://www.weibo.com/1984841003/FFh2KtG0z?filter=hot&root_comment_id=4200073363477770&type=comment#_rnd1517241350552

Furthermore her weibo has followed the Pillow Book official weibo as well.

 

For the 3rd prince Lian Song , the actor Li Dong Heng 李东恒....someone also asked in his weibo but he didn't reply anything. The closest ref was in dec 2017, a short clip where someone asked him if his char and Cheng Yu would be together or not, he replied something like why u r so concerned? (the way he said it, think it's dialect or strange accent).

Btw he, Wang Xiao 王骁 (the actor as Si Ming) and Vengo Gao Weiguang attended a friend's wedding in nov 2017.

Spoiler

1st pic....Wang xiao (2nd guy), Li Dong Heng (bottom right).

2nd pic. Vengo (left), Wang (right)

Same, Wang Xiao was also asked about his Si Ming's role...he didn't reply. But one thing is he is under the same agency 嘉行传媒 as Vengo and Reba....all under Yang Mi. And this company is directly involved in the drama. So my guess is chances is quite high.

Wang's weibo : https://www.weibo.com/u/1505989231

I don’t know why but I think Vengo Gao is much more handsome in his white long hair (he looks majestic) than in his original short black one....hehe

Haha, Fengjiu thought so too :D. There is a scene after she cut off one of her tails, she was joking Donghua looked a bit ugly in his human form.

Original short black one....cenching is referring to his modern day hair, right? 

 

Ya, as Donghua, think the long white hair piece mildly "stretched" his face....so less wrinkles....and maybe the lighting and some post-production enhancement, he look more "immortal".

 

Then if referring to his human emperor appearance, perhaps the long beard didn't suit his look. 

 

Frankly speaking Gao has an unusual look (but he said he's 100% han chinese) which some chars' hairstyle and look doesn't look good on him (except Donghua of course)....eg Xuan-Yuan Sword - Han Cloud.

In xuan yuan sword Han cloud he looks like a crossdresser to me. It's probably because of the hairstyle and the clothing. In Legend of Fu Yao he looks good though. But I like him best as DH. The long white hair really suits him.

Yup, I am referring to his own hair....:lol: I don’t like his human Emperor looks also. He looked the best as DH. He looks mixed though plus he got the height. 

 

China is a huge country with equally huge population and thousands years of civilisation. I am sure somewhere along the line there was a cross breeding....:lol: Me myself also a Chinese that doesn’t look like Chinese too....:tongue:

 

Tbh, not many actors look good in ancient styling. The hair particularly can either made them extraordinarily gorgeous or extraordinarily dreadful....IMO, actors with classic Chinese features look best in ancient garbs. While almost all actresses look good in ancient styling. 

 

In Peach Blossoms, I was a bit put off with YeHua’s Sadako hairstyle at first but MC made it up with  his stellar acting....:wub:

 

Dang!! Can I unseen that picture of Gao in the spoiler?!?!? :astonished: It destroyed my mental image of DH completely......:lol:

@angelangie, @Cedric Ong

I heard YH and QQ’s hair are made from silk not the regular wigs that made from real human hair that’s why it retained the high shines.

 

The costume department in that drama did an extraordinarily great job, every immortal looks ethereal with their simple but elegant costumes and styling, the filters helped a lot too....the best costumes in any drama so far....I hope the Pillows Book can at least at par with the original Peach Blossoms. Who will produce the Pillow Book? Croton?
