Why ten lifetimes ago? Apparently, that was when our hero first laid eyes on our heroine. She was also a princess of a small country, bravely standing before thousands of arrows to support her soldiers. And their story began then. He watched her from one reincarnation to the next, always in pain when she was, always wanting to shield her from dangers and harm. Alas, he is able to transform into human form and enters into her life. He is the spirit of the magical lamp.

The title of the novel comes from a Japanese poem by Takasugi Shinsaku. In ancient China, crows were believed to represent the Sun. The killing of 3000 (just a number to mean A LOT) crows means to kill the sun, so that dawn never comes and I can sleep with you for eternity. AKA sometimes a euphemism for death.

    Just finished two episodes, about to start on the third. It is good so far and if you have been watching Cdramas long enough, you just learn to ignore all the bad CG lol.

      Btw they changed the country name from Yan to Li. I am still seeing the Yan used on other sites, but it has been changed to Li in the drama.

        I was reading the novel summary when I did the synopsis, hence the original country name. I wonder why they changed it… hmm ~

    I love the leads but knowing that the princess is using Amans face irks me. Why couldn’t they just make Lusi the actual princess instead of using a different actress and then swapping her appearance. Doesn’t seem genuine to me.

    Thanks for the synopsis and info. I am watching this and I like it a lot. I like the “The Killing of Three Thousands Crows” title way more than the “Love for a 1000 Years” English title but I understand why they changed it as it’s a confusing title unless you know the origin.

    I’m finding the male lead to be very oily lol. Might try again later when more eps are out.

    I’m really liking this show at the moment. Zheng Ye Cheng is so cute and the pacing is nice since there are only 30 episodes.
