First Impression: What do you think of Eternal Love of Dream (The Pillow Book) with Dilraba and Vengo Gao?

The Pillow Book also now known as Eternal Love of Dream is adapted from the second book in the Three Lives, Three Worlds series. It follows the love story between a nine-tailed fox queen of Qing Qiu – Bai Feng Jiu, and the first ruler of Heaven – Dong Hua Di Jun, that spans over three different lives. I remember the OTP was really loved during the airing of Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms but I can’t help but wonder whether they have missed the sweet spot to air this drama as it has been close to three years. You want to ride the high tides and feed the hungry fans, don’t ya? Anyway, I didn’t watch the prequel so chances of me watching this is slim. The visual of this couple is no joke though. Dilraba is ethereal and Vengo could be a chiseled AI in his next role. XD

Begins airing 1/22!

    I actually quite like it! It’s not amazing or anything and I don’t really have anything to rave about. But I quite liked the book anyways (more that 10 miles) and everything is “meets expectation”. It’s a relaxing, cute drama for me. That’s it. It helps destress from school. Also my standards are way lower when stressed so maybe summer-me would be “meh” about this drama, but now it’s hitting all the right comfort spots right now. All things considered, it’s following the book pretty well. Plot wise, at least. Dong Hua’s still stiff and Feng Jiu too cutesy, but it fits the actors and it’s cute so oh well.

    I watched TMOPB but FF all of their scenes, only watched ym/mc’s storyline but I’m enjoying this so far. Maybe I’ll change my mind when it gets angsty but so far, it’s cute and funny. Didn’t read the novel either, heard it was all over the place.

    As much as I dislike Vengo’s acting because of the stiffness, I enjoyed the storyline between him and Feng Jiu previously in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms. Skipped straight to episode 12 to see how it went for this drama and was quite hooked and interested. Will be giving this drama a go, I am prepared to shed some tears and watch the ice block melt under FJ’s cuteness haha!

    I had so many expectations having waited for this drama for 2 and half years. Unfortunately for me none of them materialized which is a shame so I dropped this drama!

    It’s a great drama worth the 2 year long torturous wait. Fengjiu is a very endearing character that grows from a adorable naive little fox to the Queen of her kingdom. Dijun is also such a cool character with his white hair whos indifference to worldly matters can only be melted by our cute Fengjiu. Their story has 3 lives/arcs and now that the first mortal arc is over the real fun begins. So give this drama a chance people!
    Some people at being too harsh while judging it. I guess their expectations skyrocketed while waiting for the drama.
    I can understand some novel fans to be disappointed since it they’ve made some changes to the book. Furthermore people who don’t know about the novel are confused and keep comparing it to TMOPB and might even find it repetitive. People might also be unaware of Fengjiu’s character development and think the initial immature boy chasing is all her character has to offer. The updates are kinda slow especially if you are not VIP so to some the mortal arc may seem draggy and too long and people don’t find Vengo handsome with the black wig. With the corona virus people are also criticizing any celebrity that’s trending on Weibo so the drama’s promotions have to remain low key.
    I wish the team of this drama lotsa success and I hope the haters will stop rating it 1 on Douban to influence others from watching it.
