[Upcoming Mainland WebDrama 2018] Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book 三生三世枕上书

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! 

 

Newbie here! Wow, I just spent a good couple of hours reading through all the pages, and I made a soompi account just so I can comment some of my thoughts. 

 

1. Someone mentioned YeHua’s epilogue, does anyone have a translated copy of this? I’d love to read it. 

 

2. The mortal realm arc and the role that Vengo will play is definitely an interesting concept. I actually didn’t realize that DongHua didn’t actually go to the mortal realm until my third time reading the pillow books. :sweat_smile: It just didn’t sink in. But I have a theory about what the crown prince role might be, in the pillow books, FengJiu says that she has no sexual experience because both times that she had been married, both the Song Emperor and Ye Qingti treated her like precious, pure being and never touched her. She broke the Song Emperor’s heart by writing a love letter to his Noble Consort which then compelled him to marry her to Qingti. In the drama, she breaks his heart by feigning an affair with the Crown Prince, YuanZhen. I think that they’re probably going to reuse the crown prince “affair” for how she breaks the Emperor’s heart since writing a love letter to another woman might have too many homosexual subtexts for a mainland drama. Anyway, that’s just my two theory. 

 

3. I read some discussion about dubbing, originally, I wasn’t a fan either, but for “ancient” dramas, I think dubbing really helps standardize accents and ensure proper pronunciation. If you listen to YangMi’s voice, it’s so jarring after watching her as Bai Qian, especially for those that understand Chinese. Also, voice acting is really difficult and full of complexities; I think that the voice actors really convey deep emotion that a lot of actors wouldn’t be able to do otherwise. Think about all the breathy, emotional YeHua lines. Not a lot of people possess the ability to emote that much just through their voice. My only hope for FengJiu and DongHua is that they keep the same voice actors. It’d be awful to have to associate another voice with recurring characters. I think that their voice actors suited them really well too.

Interesting!!! :D But even if they reuse the crown prince affair, are you suggesting they might do away with Yuan Zhen (or Dong Hua might replace Yuan Zhen like he replaced Xize?). And do you think they’ll literally have an affair or just pretend? Leaked pics appear to show Feng Jiu kissing the Crown Prince... maybe it’s pretend? But i also feel like they need to have some sort of passionate romantic connection (but something also tears them apart) in order to make Dong Hua’s role as Crown Prince worth the addition to this drama.

^

and also

^

hahaha

 

those pics are amazing

fengjiu is looking so cute and adorable

and donghua... gosh i adore the purple sash with that white outfit

looking really dashing

i recognize the rest as zhe yan, su moye (moshao), ali and also bai gungun (the seriously adorable bai gungun)

and also

 yan chiwu, chengyu, bai zhen, siming, lian song and lastly must be jiheng (she looks older than i expected jiheng should be) but jiheng is much much older than fengjiu rite? also what is that she is holding? saha fruit?

so we are still miss zhong lin, zie guchou, prince meng, zhihe, and other minor characters which may be or not be in the drama version

it doesnt matter, all is good, i just like seeing and matching characters name to their faces now, it makes all more real

hahaha

 

@Lena Lu

welcome aboard and get ready to get seriously infected with the dongfeng bug

These look amazing! I cant get over how fairy and beautiful the setting is. They really nailed it. I can't wait to see, in detail, the updated look of the Heaven Palace and all the other locations.

Hmm, I forgot about Yuan Zhen being the actual crown prince in the mortal life. Maybe Dong Hua plays not the crown prince, but just a regular prince? I think it’ll mirror Fengjiu’s feelings about “Xize,” she’ll be attracted to him but not know why. Because she thinks the emperor is DongHua, she probably will resist her feelings meanwhile DongHua as the mortal prince will probably chase her. I worry about this mortal arc messing up the delicate continuity of this world. 

 

@chubby^green^

thanks! I was already obsessed even before this was announced, but I finally found people to share my excitement with!!

same here

i am new at this whole chinese drama

i used to watch taiwanese drama during the crazy idol drama period

then it ended and i stop watching 

only viewing once every blue moon based on my fav actress namely one only 

then i saw dilraba, i forgot what started my interest in her

but i was curious and it was during holiday 

so i thought why not

hooked, lined and definitely sinker

 

i even just watched three lives three world 10 miles peach blossom just two weeks ago honestly speaking

i got to know about dongfeng first before i know about eternal love

a fan of those two first before anything else

hahaha

 

now i am just happy that i find them just in time

not too early that i would crazily waiting for the confirmation of the casting, filming period, the angst of maybe vengo and dilraba wont be reprising their roles and so on

but also quite missing the period of watching leaked fancams and making assumptions, and building the excitement over time

but at least i am in time

to spazz with the others here while waiting for the drama to be aired though

what a great time i am being now

hahaha

saying my sentiment

ken chang was amazing as zheyan, so i kinda curious about the new zhe yan

same with the new chengyu, the pic still doesnt convinced me and i am still missing the old chengyu

but as always, it's better to let go, what's done is done, empty your heart and mind and accept the new one with an open thoughts

hahaha

at least i will try hehehe

This is yet to be announced since last time Eternal Love was acquired by Dramafever and they sold it to netflix. So im pretty sure viki will acquire this as the hype is still there. Netflix will probably too.
