Finally The Pillow Book has its own thread :D  Thank you @angelangie

I'm so glad Dilireba and Vengo Gao are going to reprise their roles. I didn't expect we'll have the same actors since it is said that another actress bought the rights of this book. Whoever decided to cast Dili and Vengo, he/she had my most sincere thank you :D

BTW, anyone knows why it is called the pillow book?

hahaha i think all of us are......the hype is already even when they have yet to start filming lols



yeah I am going to read the book and watch their parts as a prep. I am also pretty glad that it is only 25 episodes, that means that they won't add unnecessary storylines and just give fans what they want.

Thanks @angelangie for opening this thread

I'm still so excited about the news cause I thought other actors will play the roles, as we all thought actually whoever did this I'm really thankful :blush: I heard the project is under Jaywalk studio so maybe they bought back the rights!!! But it's a Web drama so they say the quality won't be like ten miles of peach blossom, as far as they do a decent job with the book I don't mind


And as far as I know this will be Vengo's first leading role, I hope he delivers as expected and let this be his chance to break through

Oh and the filming won't start until the second half of this year, too long for me


I think the title came from the fact the a big part of the story is inside a dream ( I didn't like that it was too long but the ending of the dream got me both shocked and sad) hope the script writer will shorten that part, since it's only 25 eps (hopefully) maybe we won't have any unnecessary plots AND a big wish that there will be more to the closure of the book, you know :expressionless:

OMG I hope it'll pass through with SARFT. SARFT scares me with their pick and choose on drama changes and things like that. I remember Ballad of the Dessert drama was going through a SARFT ordeal the last time. 

So finger cross all will go through with them and we can get this drama on board. So excited to go back to the 3L3W world :)

He should be if they follow the novel. It won't be as funny as it is if they don't include him in the drama. 


I just heard a different production company just announced it will make the pillow book movie version. What is it with 3L3W that make production companies want to make a drama version and movie version at the same time? First with TMPB and now this?

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





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. 



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
