There are two adaptations of Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花 and both are based on the popular yet controversial novel by Tangqi Gongzi 唐七公子. One is a movie while the other is a 58-episode Chinese drama directed by Lam Yuk Fan detailing a tragic love story that transcends across three lifetimes.
I got a taste of the author's fondness for sadistic romance 虐戀 in City of Devastating Love and this appears to be no different. Yang Mi (Sword of Legends) and Mark Chao (The Warriors Gate) take the lead as Bai Qian and Yue Hua while Dilraba Dilmurat (Pretty Li Hui Zhen) and Gao Weiguang (Classic of Mountains and Seas) bring up the rear as Feng Jiu and Dong Hua, the protagonists of the sequel Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book.
The rest of the cast includes Ken Chang (The Lost Tomb), Zhang Bin Bin (Just One Smile is Very Alluring), Maggie Huang, Zhu Xu Dan (Hua Xin Shi), Dai Si and An Yue Xi (Whirlwind Girl 2).
As is the fate of popular novel adaptations, there was much speculation over casting and below are one of the fan favorites from 2014 pairing Wallace Huo with Tiffany Tang Yan.
The story revolves around Bai Qian, a fox from Qing Qiu who possesses an ethereal beauty unmatched in all the realms while Yue Hua is the Crown Prince of the heavenly realm. They meet and fall in love unaware of each other's identities and it leads to a world of heartaches.
Qing Qiu is a place often referred to in works of fiction that is actually loosely based on the Classic of Mountains and Seas 山海经, a collection of texts about deities and events that exist only in legends.
