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

Hello all,

 

I’m new here and I’ve been lurking reading all the messages from page 1 :)  I’ve watched and read TPB multiple times and just can’t get enough of it.  I’m now trying to watch new shows but always end up coming back to my fav episodes :p  currently watching Love and Redemption and notice DH voice actor as the new ML.  The FL voice actor sounds like FJ too...does anyone think so?

 

Hi there, nice to meet you! :) Glad to know you both enjoyed watching the drama and reading the book. Hope you enjoy the contents of the forum as well. It was quite a journey from page 1! ^_^

 

About the voices, it's common practice in Cdramas to have a voice actor or actress dubbing the dialogues, usually to conform with the standard spoken Mandarin. Since the actors and actresses are from different places, it's inevitable that their local accent may carry over to the way they deliver their scripts. :) In TMOPB and TPB, Si Ming actor is one of those that doesn't need dubbing.

Fresh out of the oven! ELOD translation team presents author Tang Qi's 7th epilogue for The Pillow Book. We hope you get the joke because it is hilariously funny to the bones!!!    Source : @

The ELOD translation team have finally completed the English translation of Tang Qi's latest Pillow Book Epilogue. We hope you will enjoy the read! Shameless DH in action yet again!   S

Ok - for those wondering what Vengo said during his interview (I only translated up to this point. The rest was his message for his love rivals, which I won't go into, his appreciation to viewers for

Yeh I’ve been reading the previous post and only realize from here that cdrama uses voice actors.  I never knew until now! Lol  I’m trying to enjoy new Cdramas and it’s nice to have the same voice actors.  I just need to close my eyes and imagine DH and FJ reincarnated :p

I’m too addicted to Tang Qi stories.  I’ve attempted to read Lotus Step through google translate but it’s giving me a headache trying to understand but still pulling through the bad English.  I hope our translators can get some chapters up for us soon.  Thank you in advance for all the hard work!
 

PS: is it bad that I’m reading the story about LS and CY but when DH is mentioned I get too excited? :hwaiting2:

Does anyone have any good recommendation on c-drama similar to ELOD? I watch some many ELOD that I begin to memorize the lines haha. Such an addicting drama! During the quarantine (still am in it). I watch many c-drama like Ashes of Love, the Untamed, Story of Yanxi, rewatch ten miles of peach blossom, Ice fantasy, A love so Beautiful, Meteor Garden, the King's woman, The Flame's daughter, Love Designer, Sweet Dreams, and even love & Destiny. But seriously ELOD I can't get it off my mind! Worth the 2 years wait!

Tang Qi's novels just reaches out and makes one feel what's the character going through. ^_^

 

Auto-translated texts are difficult to understand in some portions, as it's not like reading as is. One must slow down, even repeat, hahahah, to get the gist of it.  

 

I was breathless at the middle and later chapters of Lotus Steps first 24 chapters. And gosh, even in crappy auto-translated texts, there should be tissues nearby while reading some sections.

 

DH is like that special child here, hahaha. We actually get more facets of his character in Lotus Steps too. I especially like just how close Lian Song and Dong Hua are.

It looks like you're into wuxia / xianxia dramas (me too!) and have similar taste in the ones that you've watched. I don't know how long you've been watching dramas, but a few of the slightly older ones, if you haven't already seen them, that were very popular and that I find myself going back to are General and I (based on a book that's been fully translated into English!), Princess Weiyoung, and Prince of Lanling.

As of now, none yet really, though I liked the couple episodes I've seen of Kdrama The Moon Embracing the Sun. :) There are a few I'm looking forward to when they're shown: Novoland Pearl Eclipse, The Long Ballad, and The Legend of Fei. There are plenty to catch up to, hahaha, like finishing Untamed, Candle in the Tomb. Miss S looks interesting as well. Also, Princess Agents might finally soon get the other half of its story, and give that happy ending.

So far, I’ve only skimmed The prologue and chapter one... and so far no Dong Hua :(

Prologue and Chapter 1 are about Cheng Yu and Lian Song, as are the earlier chapters. Dong Hua is in some chapters about Lian Song. The weirdo and the rascal are really close. ^_^

 

Almost each of the 24 chapters of Lotus Steps has 2 or 3 sections, and apart from Dong Hua and Xie Guchou, mentioned briefly would be Xiao Yan. There's no FJ in the 24 chapters, mortal arc sojourn of Lian Song and Cheng Yu.

Thank you for the recommendation ~ I'll give it a shot! I heard the dramas have really good reviews too :))

I can't wait to read a proper translation of that flashback between ChengYu and ShaoWan in Lotus step. They seemed so close from the little google translation I understood. 

Spoiler

Its kind of poetic that they both died/feathered together. CHENGYU/ZUTI REMEMBER YOUR IDENTITY ALREADY!!

Oh yea, that's a good Kdrama I watches a few years ago! Although I'm not a big fan of Kdrama I do like their historical drama and the modern one as well. I'm also looking forward to those dramas as well.

Lotus steps main characters in the novel will probably be the obvious Liansong, Chengyu, Chengyu's ancient second lead that is mentioned all over, 100% Shaowan and 60% Donghua since they're heavily tied to her Chengyu's past. Probably like 2% of the Dongfeng family will be included in the last parts, most likely briefly mentioned and in Bodhi fate maybe even more. Of course MoYuan since spoilers but hes somewhat involved in Chengyu past. And the rest will be people we have already been introduced to in the first part.

Spoiler

I think I read somewhere Donghua and Chengyu/Zuti are kind of biological siblings but not really. Zuti is supposed to be the complete light/ mother of the mortals and Donghua is the opposite but is as powerful as each other.

Finished episode 18. So awkward.

i find myself annoyed with the empress. Sure Xiao Jiu’s background is mysterious. But she uncovered a secret plot; saved the emperor and was wrongly accused and imprisoned. Get over it already!

and it is disappointing that Xiao Jiu lied to the emperor. If it was for the love trial, fine, but don’t try to defend your actions about the bracelet.

They're very close. Shao Wan may be brash, but she's the bestie of both Dong Hua and Cheng Yu's past identity. :)

 

The similarity of both DH and Cheng Yu's original form were from how they were born. DH was described as the Child of Heaven who answered the call for a hero to end the ceaseless wars. As for Cheng Yu, more should be revealed about her in Lotus Steps. Her monster flowers also knew she must go through several cycles of reincarnations.

 

Cheng Yu is quite a revelation already in the mortal arc. For a young teen, she's outwitted scholars and displayed resilience over her personal tragedies. She's got poise in spades. 

And there are two gods whose eyes she has caught. One was her fated beloved. The other has been a good friend in her ancient past.

Filial lineage has plenty of weight during the olden times. FJ may be a heroine, but the Dowager Empress understandably wants someone with established identity of her family for the Emperor. 

 

This is also a precautionary measure on having an Empress whose loyalty will be to the state.

It's all part of the build up for the coup de grace.

Lian Song should whip himself first! LOL! Because honestly, if it was bad that DH was unable to attend his own wedding reception, how will Lian Song make it up with that bride he rejected marrying plus other things he did...once she's again who she was? :phew:

 

Granted, he has his reasons...but the line of those who want to roast him is getting longer. First in the line is his half-father DH himself, SW if she's up on time. B)

 

Hoping too as well that there would be updates soon. Unfortunately, COVID happened and has really cramped normal routines. 

 

:cries:

I'm currently watching the Kdrama "It's okay not to be okay." It's quite good. :) 

Will check out The moon embracing the sun- heard alot about it.
