Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (2017)

Three Lives Three Worlds
Stills are out on the upcoming drama Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花. There are two adaptations, a movie and a TV series, both based on the a novel by Tangqi Gongzi.

I caught a glimpse of Tangqi Gonzi's penchant for sadistic romance 虐戀 in City of Devastating Love and Three Lives Three Worlds appears to be no different, detailing a tragic love story that transcends through the afterlife. 

Yang Mi (Sword of Legends) and Mark Zhao lead the cast in the titular roles of fated lovers Bai Qian and Yue Hua. Dilraba Dilmurat and Gao Weiguang follow as Feng Jiu and Dong Hua from the sequel called Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book.

As is the fate of popular novel adaptations, there was much speculation over casting and here is one of the hopefuls from 2014 pairing Wallace Huo and Tang Yan.

If Wallace Huo were in Three Lives Three Worlds
If Tang Yan were in Three Lives Three Worlds
In spite of the contrarians who prefer the finalized movie casting of Crystal Liu and Yang Yang, the drama version can turn out to be just as good if not better since it has the advantage of time, effectively gaining the freedom to do more in terms of character development. Even though I'm certain that endless comparisons will be made between the movie and drama right down to the kid actor, I'd rather give both an equal chance because both look quite promising. 

Bai Qian is a spirit fox from Qing Qiu who possesses an ethereal beauty unmatched in all the realms. Yue Hua is the Crown Prince of the heavenly realm Jiu Chong. They meet, fall in love, get separated, then meet again.

You might already be familiar with Qing Qiu because it is a place often referred to in more than a few novels that take inspiration from ancient literature. Three Lives Three Worlds is no different as it is loosely based on the Classic of Rivers and Seas 山海经 depicting stories about deities and people that could only have existed in the form of legends.

  1. There is a plagiarism scandal against the novelist, Tang Qi Gong Zi, T7. This novel of hers is adapted into a movie and TV series. T7 plagiarized a xianxia BL novel. BL theme is banned in China so a lot of Mainland residents are not as well-informed about the major plagiarism that went on. I think both novel titles have "Tao Hua" in it. Quite a few character names sound very similar or the same in Pinyin. A few key scenes are also the same. "Hamster" read through both novels and made a side-by-side comparison. But T7 has multiple novels being adapted into TV series / movies.

    1. I had no idea about that though I have read about plagiarism cases even with Guo Jingmin and his novel Ice Fantasy?

      If it's true then it really is quite disappointing really though I don't know enough coz I never actually read, I only watch.

    2. Here is the link to Hamster's post of it. You have to add "period" in the first two spaces.

      The plagiarism instances look pretty blatant to me. I have to agree with Hamster. Poor Hamster was a huge fan of T7. She had been blogging about T7 for 3 years. Poor Hamster was really disappointed.

      It is sad to see how well plagiarism has paid off for some people. It just encourages the nasty behavior. People who plagiarize are often very aggressive and greedy too.
