[Mainland Chinese Web Drama 2020] Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book 三生三世枕上书

Recommended Posts

The problem is Ji Heng totally failed to realise that the first thing Dong Hua looked at when he fell in love with Feng Jiu isn’t her beauty but what she is inside.

 

He liked her vibrant personality first and foremost and her character. Looks are not the only thing captivating Dong Hua. It’s the whole package that he loves, he sees qualities in her that will make her the empress for him. 

 

Like DH's comments about the tea FJ made. It's her he's describing. Interesting colour. Tasteless at first, then sweetness lingers on the next sips.

 

One again that JH eavesdrops afterwards. Another mark of lack of manners. LOL.

I think he was really stalking her. He even followed them when they dug that hole to steal the saha fruit. So my feeling is this old man was really stalking his future wife. 

 

In that case, multitasking at its best. B) I'm not yet over that tunnel which he turned into a maze! :lol: Isn't it symbolic, that despite the confusion, FJ still found DH? :wub: That JH was also there, but ran away, while FJ remained and fought ML's avatar with DH? And that FJ tried to leave later, but ended up staying with DH? :wub:

I’m curious. Remember after Jiheng came over to DH’s room in the middle of the night and ran away crying. They later showed a scene of her crying and staring in the mirror. What was all that about? The previous scene already showed her leaving in despair and heartbreak. Was the mirror scene trying to show us she was comparing her beauty to FJ?

Another example of whitewashing JH in the drama.. in the book JH is quite confident abt her beauty and tries to seduce DH with it (and fails horribly) but for the sake of making JH look like a sympathetic character they added that scene of her crying infront of a mirror in the drama..

Wasn't it that Lian Song in Ep 4 wanted to make a scarf or something out of FJ, when Si Ming said he saw a fox? :lol:

At the end of the day, regardless of toned down version or not, Dong Hua loves the whole of Feng Jiu, her inner and her outer beauty. No else will measure up, period :).

 

Whether they whitewash or not, JH has remained the shallow white lotus in the story regardless.

It also reminds of Su Jin so much in TMOPB. 

 

Hmm, I wonder, what if AL played Su Jin, and MH is Ji Heng instead? Will these two characters still be as well portrayed? :)

 

I've also often wondered what if Xuan Nu actress is the Su Jin, and vice versa. :sweatingbullets:

I really wish the production included the "Flying vessel( small bowl )" incident scene.. after Xiao Yan fell off the stairs and cried "who the bastard, trying to murder me" and Donghua replied " sorry my hand slipped" and then sweets little Ah Li said " woah it's slipped pretty far".:joy: 

Poor Xiao Yan ...luckily the flying Vessel was already empty ...otherwise Xiao Yan will be wet with Ji Heng's soup.

 

Come to think of it, wishing now in that scene that the bowl flew smack to XY's head and JH's soup poured all over him. :joy:

I was disappointed seeing the scene in the drama. In the book I can't stop laughing reading it, but when I watched it I was like "oh, that's not funny at all".

I agree that it was a bit anticlimactic in the series, when surely they could have been done it easily? Say, if it's difficult for special effects, XY could have caught the mug above his head, but it is upside down, so soup poured over his head and face. Then a small lick, and he says it's delicious?

 

I'm in the first 100 pages coz I've a kid who likes FJ and DH illustrations, for her own sketches. :lol:

Back then we're predicted what scenes we are love to see. My prediction was included these two scenes , one was flying vessel (which's guite disappointing but at least JH's got to see that her soup was not:"that special" since DH gave it to XY) and two was when FJ unconsciously pinched DH's thigh.

 

PB1 page 255

Fengjiu sipped her tea and felt as if she was floating in a dream. But next to her, Jiheng's steady gaze at Donghua was so very real. She couldn't determine truth from dream. After some consideration, she gave herself a

pinch. It didn't hurt. She must be dreaming then, she thought.

She pinched herself again. Donghua's voice came from above: “How convenient you choose your pinching spot.” Fengjiu looked down at her frozen hand which was placed on Donghua's thigh.

She quietly retrieved her hand and dryly laughed: “I was helping to smooth out your wrinkled garment, Your Majesty.”

 

And also I was disappointed they didn't included the scenes , the possessive DH where he's burning XY's hand. DH was mad when he saw XY cuddled FJ as baby fox.

You guys were amazing and amazingly patient.  :love: About DH burning XY's hand, I really would have liked to see him too in carrot colours outfit. :joy: 

 

Unfortunately, this scene wasn't in the series, nor he wore something that made him look like a carrot. It was replaced by him getting surprised that FJ was a nine-tailed red fox, and finding out she was the Qing Qiu princess from a seething DH because XY's in her room. :sweat_smile:

FJ's pov on XY's outfit

 

He looked exactly like a giant carrot
freshly pulled out from the snow.:joy:

i was always amazed by FJ how spontaneously FJ invented a reasons. Her mind and reasons always so creative . DH also always be entertaining and amused by FJ's behaviour whenever she's around.

 

Maybe DH should look into miaohua mirror everytime he wanted to see how mischievous FJ is in the Qingqiu. Didn't DH wanted to know how was Xiao Bai's look when she was a baby..he uttered those words with his dreamy expression..

She's nimble minded. Proof she isn't lacking in the brains department. FJ does it too in a way that's so smooth and natural. She can give lectures on grace under pressure. :lol: 

 

For some reason, when DH was asking how did FJ look as a baby, it was like he already felt that there'll be a miniature of either him or her in three years time. And that dreamy look is of eagerness to soon have his very own family and bundle of joy in his arms.

 

About FJ's mischievous streak:

Spoiler

She might be known as troublemaker, but bestie was way, way more, when it comes to creating chaos. :phew:

I wish they stopped at when DH told her in front of XY and Xu Yang that she will be treated and be back as a demon princess, in exchange of cutting all kinds of association. The part when he said whether she lives or she dies doesn't have anything to do with him anymore was so cold. IMO, there was no need to show that she was kept in Xu Yang's safe place, and I really detest that rambling, way too long HEA of hers.

In the book, I don’t think Xuyang was receptive to welcoming his Sister back. Dong Hua had to use the Miaohua glass to bribe him to do so. Even so, Jiheng is a disgrace to the clan after she purposefully ran away from the wedding. In the book version, I doubt she has a happy ending because Xiao Yan will marry someone else, and who would want to marry the disgraced princess Dong Hua dumped on their doorstep with distaste?

I used to hate having to learn two languages. Now that I am able to read original Chinese literature, it is actually a blessing and not a curse to be fully bilingual. Aside from Chinese literature, I also read extensively in the English Language. 

I sucked at Mother Tongue classes and looked forward to university since it meant the end of Chinese tution. Oh sure I still watched Singaporean Chinese dramas with English subtitles. But the constant struggle to get through the exams and time spent on tution didn’t endear me to the subject. It isn’t until I get hooked on Chinese movies like Red Cliff that I embrace my Chinese heritage (I was a big fan of Zhuge Liang)

now that I got hooked on Once Upon A Time in Uni and became a following fan of Liu Yifei and Yang Yang....I regretted not paying more attention in Chinese class because I can’t understand Weibo at all!

i even took electives on Chinese philosophy (Confucius was the easiest to understand out of the 3) and ancient Chinese history.

my Chinese is rusty but I still know the basics. What kills me is the intonation.

At this point, XY is still infatuated with JH. The next books will fix that. Xu Yang can't object either with DH treating her and returning JH as a princess in the demon realm.

 

You're right though, that she was a disgrace to her clan, right to the way she acted and behaved towards the Queen of Qing Qiu, and to the Emperor of East Lands.

 

Xu Yang can still arrange a marriage for her, since being a consort to the princess would still be attractive for some.

I was looking forward to this scene, it was one of my fav moment in the book.. in the beginning DH never gave much thought abt XY coz he knew XY liked JH, but this moment was like a wake-up call to DH coz even though XY liked someone else, XY and FJ being the naive idiots they are (in romance Dept) would end up sharing intimate moments (hugging, hanging out together) and the fact that XY could walk in & out of FJ room whenever he felt like it irritated DH on a different level and he immideatly decided to switch rooms :joy:

I also like how this is parallel to JH walking in and out of DH room whenever she felt like it.. by switching rooms DH stopped both of their advances (given that XY didn't have inappropriate thoughts abt FJ unlike that JH)

JH wasn't even that close to DH to  begin with that she can come and go his room, whereas FJ and XY are very good friends, as close enough as FJ is with Jing Wei, Bai Zhen's bird mount.
