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
This is gonna be trailers galore folks. I’m serious. Both Qiyi and HNTV had their quarterly event the past two days and had been showing off their next batch of dramas to screen! Plus, just a few more dramas for October ~~
Long gone are the days I can focus on one drama per post. xD
Book 2 in Tang Qi’s Three Lives Three Worlds series is The Pillow Case, a dedicated love story between Bai Feng Jiu (Bai Qian’s niece, played by Dilraba) and Dong Hua Dijun (played by Vengo Gao). If you have watched Yang Mi’s Eternal Love, you’ll remember these two characters. First set of posters are out!
When Mr. Sunshine aka Shawn Dou goes deep and dark, I go 😍😍😍. It’s like a mix of his two drama characters, Yan Xun and Muru Han Jiang, except with lesser clothing. XD In the movie Legend of Sun and Moon, he’s paired up with the lovely Dilraba. Sunshine will be playing Hou Yi, a god of archery descended from heaven who shot down 9 suns out of 10 to save mankind. Dilraba will be playing his wife, Chang’e, goddess of the Moon. Not sure how the story goes but in one popular variation, as a reward for saving mankind, our archer is given an elixir of immortality. However, he doesn’t consume the pill if his wife isn’t in it with him. However, Chang’e is forced to take the pill when an intruder tries to steal it. The lovers are then separated as Chang’e chooses the moon as her residence.
So did everyone get a chance to watch the premiere episodes of Lie Huo Ru Ge? Seems like the styling is the talk of town around here. Lol. Reminds me of the hair lift procedure William and Shi Shi got in Love Lost in Times. xD But back to our main stars, Dilraba reunites with Zhang Bin Bin one more time….. Are these two destined to be ill-fated forever in drama universe or what?! Then there’s our sole older male lead Vic Zhou, who is a decade older than all of the cast. Strange vibe or a slow burn to success? We shall see because I do like the whole cast ensemble.
