Original article for the interview. It is by Phoenix Entertainment on July 6th. I re-translated to English based on a Vietnamese translation so it may not be fully fully correct 
http://ient.ifeng.com/43064940/news.shtml?srctag=pc2m 

 

Interviewer: Acting with Dilireba in the Three Lives Three World Pillow Book, what are the differences when compared to Three Lives Three World Ten Miles Peach Blossom?
Vengo: The characters are still the same, but with the Pillow Book, it is mainly about Dong Hua and Feng Jiu so the storyline and relationship will be more exciting and complicated.

 

Interviewer: There are many drama with sequel that have the same law, are you worried about this problem? (I think same “law” here referring to how it isn’t as successful)
Vengo: First of all, the Pillow Book isn’t a sequel, it is an original story. And the story isn’t about the main characters from 10 Miles Blossom, it has its own main characters so it can’t be consider as a sequel. Secondly, there are enough fans for it and with post production, I believe it will be good.

 

Interviewer: Acting as a couple with Dilireba again, are you worry that the fans will get tired?
Vengo: No, because every time we collaborate, the storyline and the characters are all new so I feel that our collaboration will bring freshness to the audiences. When there are freshness, I feel that the audiences won’t be against it.

 

Interviewer: That mean that if there is a fresh collaboration, you two will still act together?
Vengo: Right

Abit disappointed. They got another actress to act as Chengyu.

 

Pic of her from another show.

0072SxN4ly1ft5qf08p5pj30qo0qogoc.jpg

 

袁雨萱 Yuan Yu Xuan. Born in 1997. She is from Jia Heng agency, Yang Mi's company...probably they want to promote this newbie. She is in FuYao as QiYun and in The Flame's Daughter as DieYi.

 

Besides viewers being used to the previous actress Wang Ting...many feel this one look like a little sister to Fengjiu rather than an older sister feel.

 

*******

A rumor i read..but most likely true (cos one screenshot show a list of human palace chars)....is they added more scenes and chars to the part of human lifetime...think in the original novel (not the previous drama), Donghua never lived as a human.....but the current drama, they intended to make it like he really have a lifetime there with Fengjiu.

@Cedric Ong is Lian Song going to be played by the same actor?  If so the rumored Cheng Yu actress looks too young for him, imo. 

About the rumor of the human lifetime, if they really going to make it like in TMOPB then it can't be called 3 lives 3 worlds anymore. It should be 4 lives 4 worlds. Unless they change the lifetime FJ had as DH's pet fox.

LianSong and also SiMing are played by original actors...that is why fans find iy a pity...the trio now incomplete.

I know right, I was reading the comments on weibo and everybody isn't happy. They were saying there could be a lot of reason why the original Chengyu actress couldn't act in this drama, like maybe she didn't want to take it, or scheduling problems? Since Yang Mi's company (Jay Walk) is invested in this drama, of course she will try to get all her own actors to be on the drama, especially the newbies, just like in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms.

Aw no! I really hope that’s NOT true! After reading the first book and watching the 10MPB drama, it took me FOREVER to move on and read Pillow Book. The reason is this: i didn’t like the storyline of DH reincarnating to the mortal realm as the *ahem* horny little mortal emperor. I’m SUPER possessive of my “man” and i didn’t like the idea of him sleeping with all these concubines. Even though he has no memory of his identity as DH, when he returns, he certainly remembers his mortal realm *ahem* rendevous. So for a long time, i wasn’t interested in reading Pillow Book, UNTIL i found out that a MASSIVE TWIST would happen and nothing in 10MPB is as it SEEMS, and that DH never left the heavely realm... because it is only told in BQ’s POV and the drama followed that reasoning. I really love DHFJ’s POV and book storyline and i can only pray to the drama gods that they don’t mess around with it. This super awesome twist took 2 books to fully set up and have its impact and i was happily blown away! <3 I take the 10MPB drama as a standalone but i don’t want the Pillow Book scriptwriters to take liberties with the original narrative. Stay canon!!!

 Am I missing something here?? How come both of you guys said DH never went into the mortal realm?

 

I thought he did.... I don't fully remember what happened... But he was a king and FJ was one of the concubine... I don't think she was loved (like the drama), so she ended up marrying the mortal, whom she was debted to...? 

 

Someone correct me.. My memory is fuzzy.. But I'm pretty sure DH was in mortal realm... That was part of his life experiences..

In the original Pillow Book novel, Donghua went into a long deep sleep after using up a lot of his power to save a realm. He didn't want to alarm others so he and Siming collaborated on a story that he went to the human realm as the human emperor. For Fengjiu, she did really go to the human realm at that time.

 

Actually when the previous drama seemed to change the human realm scenes (different from the novel) and said Donghua really went to the human realm.....some fans still interpreted in this way : it seems interesting why Fengjiu retain her memories as a human while "Donghua" didn't, they viewed it as he didn't get reborn, he just timed his "wake up" with the Emperor's death (while knowing all that happened)....so even his soul wasn't tainted with any...ahem....sex with any woman. Probably still a virgin...haha.

 

But of course, the above idea seems abit illogical against some details eg Donghua holding the broken arrow part when he woke up. 

 

Anyway seem like for this current drama, the same both going into human realm plot....but think not the same exact scenes (as previous drama)....just the general theme. Some fans actually prefer it....b'cos Fengjiu going to the human realm alone is abit meaningless.

 

A leaked video clip of Donghua's Taicheng Palace....seems similar to the previous drama.

Wow what kinda fans are they?! That’s a terrible interpretation!!! That would mean FJ was sleeping with some random mortal king. Why can’t people just accept that the drama ignored the setup of the twist, and took liberties with BQ’s POV in the first book? I mean, the whole DHFJ story in the drama was a made-up mishmash of book ideas anyway.

You’re confusing the 10MBP drama with the Pillow Book. ;) I’ll do a bit of a lengthy discussion/analysis because i think Tang Qi is sooo genius! Don’t have to read this. :)

In the 10MBP drama, what you said IS what happened. DH wanted to return FJ’s love, so he reincarnated into the mortal realm as the emperor and asked Si Ming to bring FJ down to the mortal realm to be with him. DH told Si Ming to put down on official records for Tian Jun that he had gone to the mortal realm to experience the 6 sufferings of mortal life. From here on, it was the scriptwriters taking liberties with BQ’s POV in the first book, since the producers of the 10MPB drama DID NOT have the rights to The Pillow Book (and they had to concentrate on YHBQ’s story, since DHFJ’s story mostly happens AFTER YHBQ’s royal wedding).

In The Pillow Book, FJ does go down to the mortal realm where she married the Emperor, then later, married Ye Qing Ti. Until the end of the book, she still believed that the emperor was DH (in the books, your reincarnation doesn’t look like you - that’s only in the drama in which the actor also played their reincarnated role). FJ held that mistaken belief all the way till the end until just before the end of the book when she finds out from Zhong Lin that DH never left the heavenly realm. DH had used his essence to save the universe from the Hui Ming toxins, and needed to sleep 100 years to recuperate his essence.  However, as the reader, we actually find out all about this a few chapters earlier when DH had completed making the Miao Hua mirror with Su Mo Ye in Aranya’s Dream, and was looking at his and FJ’s past. THIS is when DH, and we as the reader, find out that DH was in a 100-year sleep. Zhong Lin had arranged for Si Ming to put down on official records for Tian Jun that DH will go down to the mortal realm 40 years later (I guess disappearing for 40 years was ok for this recluse in Tai Chen Palace, but disappearing for 100 years was going to raise suspicions - and a mortal reincarnation is 60 years. Forget the 1 year = 1 day rule because that was only in the drama). Anyway, we also find out that Zhong Lin had sent DH’s shadow down to Fan Yin Valley to keep guard of the Hui Ming toxins. FJ had heard about this from her friend Xie Gu Chou, and asked Xie Gu Chou to send her shadow down to be with DH’s shadow to help repay her debt. DH’s shadow was born as Chen Ye, and FJ’s shadow was born as Aranya. Unfortunately, Chen Ye and Aranya were like star-crossed lovers and misunderstood each other their whole lives, never fulfilling their fate to be lovers. Xie Gu Chou returns to FJ with the news that her shadow had failed its mission. He also lets FJ know that DH will soon be going down to the mortal realm for 60 years and FJ decides to go down as well. ALL THIS we find out from the Miao Hua mirror.

Because Chen Ye and Aranya never fulfilled their fate, we learn from the Guardian of the Stone of Destiny that their fate had finally transferred to DHFJ, who originally had zero fate to be together. But FJ’s persistence had moved the heavens, and Chen Ye and Aranya’s fate, which was disrupted by Su Mo Ye, now transferred to DHFJ so they had a chance to be together. This is why for 400 years, nothing FJ did worked out well and DH never even knew she was in Tai Chen Palace for 400 years. But after DH wakes up from his 100-year sleep and she sees him again at YHBQ’s wedding, they keep running into each other over and over again.

I understand your confusion because Tang Qi took 2 books to set up this massive twist, but the 10MPB drama sort of ruined it by stepping in, taking liberties and creating confusion (i still love the drama as a standalone story!). For example, when FJ was in the mortal realm, she used the Two Lives Spell to present herself as a lovesick concubine because she didn’t feel anything for the emperor. She tells BQ she believes it is because she is too heartbroken over DH and no longer has feelings for him, but is merely here to repay her debt. What FJ doesn’t know at this point is that the emperor isn’t even DH, and that DH is actually asleep in Tai Chen Palace this whole time. She used the Two Lives Spell because she had no feelings for him, thinking it is because she is too heartbroken, but the deeper reason is because he isn’t even DH! And this Two Lives Spell is basically a hint that sets up the story for a massive twist later! She saves the emperor from drowning and the emperor falls in love with her, and this is where the drama takes liberties. In the drama, she sleeps with him and they have a romance. In The Pillow Book, she rejects him over and over again (because BQ removed her Two Lives Spell, so she can’t even pretend to have feelings for him). The emperor was heartbroken and married her off to Ye Qing Ti. FJ hung around for a few more years to protect the emperor from a distance, and finally was going to take a sword stab for him (still believing he is DH), but Ye Qing Ti took the stab for her instead. So even though she thought she had repayed her debt to DH by saving the emperor from the water, she now owed a debt to Ye Qing Ti. The amazing irony is that she never repayed her debt to DH either, who all this time was peacefully asleep and blissfully unaware in Tai Chen Palace.

The beauty of the story and FJ’s character is that she always remained faithful to DH, and she also maintained her dignity throughout her pursuit of him. She did not sleep with the mortal emperor and did not get herself involved in some mortal romance just because she couldn’t get what she wanted in the heavenly realm. In this light, FJ in the drama is very immature, but FJ in the book is faithful and maintains her dignity. Similarly, if you understood DH’s characrer in the book, you would know that EVEN if he did reincarnate as a mortal, he would NOT instruct Si Ming to make him an emperor with thousands of concubines - he is a ROCK, remember?! The emperor’s wish was to have someone requite his love, and in both the first book and the drama, BQ comments on how that is so out of character for DH, not knowing that the emperor is actually a mere mortal, not a reincarnation of DH. There are so many beautiful subtleties to pick up in the books. Hope you all get a chance to re-read them so that you don’t carry the confusion of the first drama into watching this new drama (which hopefully stays faithful to the books!).

Read my thorough explanation to linh5000 above. He only went to the mortal realm in the DRAMA. He NEVER left the heavenly realm in the Pillow Book. The drama is written by the scriptwriters and doesn’t follow the Pillow Book.

According to a chinese article and list of human realm chars leaked...the human realm storyline is different from the previous drama's version. Some names from the novel eg Ye Qing Ti remain....so i suspect they combine the version in the novel with some new stuff. The article said the reborn version of Donghua would be a young Crown Prince instead of the Emperor (see the 5th char listed)....my guess is this change might be the scriptwriters know fans don't like Donghua (if really reborn) to have concubines...and haha...also have beard too.

But still, as long as the official cast and info are not announced yet....a small chance that all these might be different in the end.
