Social Media Updates from the Eternal Love of Dream Cast Drum Up Buzz for the Premiere

Okay, so everyone’s pretty excited that Eternal Love of Dream also known as Three Lives Three Worlds, The Pillow Book 三生三世枕上 is premiering tonight (don’t forget!). And it looks like none the more so than one of the show’s main leads herself, Dilraba Dilmurat, who updated her Weibo handle to “Dilirejiu” – “jiu” which means nine in reference to her character Fengjiu being born in September. In fact, a lot of her cast mates too jumped in on the pre-premier excitement, changing their profile photos to their character’s caricatures and also updating their social media handles referencing their characters to further promote the show.

So our nine red tailed fox Dilraba becomes “Dilirejiu”, Vengo Gao Weiguang  switched it up to “Gao Weiguang who is less affectionate than the emperor” pointing to his stoic character, Baron Chen updated his to "Baron Chen's face_Zhe Yan's face", Li Dongheng who plays Lian Song - Ye Hua's third uncle changed his to "Heavenly Tribe's Song old third" referencing his 3rd uncle character, while Aranya’s teacher Dylan Kuo changed his to “Su Mo YEAH”.

Here are the new Weibo handles and profile photos of the cast –

  1. Lol ... it already aired on Tencent this morning, I've watched the available 2 episodes.
    Sorry to disappoint you guys, but this is not what I anticipated for a year. It's basically all comedy and I just really, really miss TMOPB.
    Also, be aware that this is not necessarily a sequel. In the first episode, it is Feng Jiu and Dong Hua's first meeting - and the meeting is different as well. So it's more of a spinoff. UGGHHH I'M SORRY BUT THE STORY OF THEIR MEETING AND HOW SHE BECAME A "FAIRY MAID" IS NOT AS GOOD.
    Ha but I really need to see my beautiful Bai Qian!!! She hasn't appeared yet!!!

    1. Agree 100%.
      Really boring. It's just too much.
      All Xianxias are too much the same.

      First, Hua Qian Gu who acts cute like a kid, really really wimpy girl, she does nothing but always whining for an OLD GUY who is COLD

      Then, Ling Xi who acts cute like a kid, also whining for an OLD GUY who is COLD

      And, Feng Jiu who acts cute like a kid, also whining for an OLD GUY who is COLD

    2. LOL - buttt with the exception of TMOPB, of course :) But really I can' imagine FENG JIU as a MAIN CHARACTER. Literally we think so alike. She is so immature and cute and everything. I love her and all but really???? Yes and the fact that she likes Dong Hua before meeting him is not cool. Just saying. Liked her story in TMOPB better! SCREAM!!

      P.S In case you don't know (sorry), I am the anonymous person you replied to.

    3. this drama is based on the novel - the original material.

    4. Eternal Love Of Dream is the adaption of Three Lives Three Worlds: The Pillow Book novel. Not the sequel to the drama Ten Miles Of Peach Blossoms. In TMOPB drama, all the things about Donghua and Fengjiu are made up facts (Kinda like fanfiction version) because they couldn't actually use the real story of the couple according to the copyright. And as far as we have seen (8 episodes so far), Eternal Love Of Dream is a very faithful adaption to the book. They followed very closely to all the events that really happened in the book.

    5. Agree with 2a.
      I don't understand why female leads in xianxia always act that way. This is why Eternal Love remains my favorite because of Bai Qian / Su Su's characterization. Lin Mo in Love and Destiny is also likable.

      But I still like xianxia dramas for the cinematography and worldview. The side characters tend to be interesting as well, and sometimes have more appealing storylines. For eg in Ashes of Love, I stayed for Runyu.

    6. I like watching Xian Xia but then with these overly similar tropes it just breaks the mood.

      Ling Xi is more redeemable because she is curing the main guy so he needs her. And he reciprocate his love for her.

      However with Hua Qian Gu and Feng Jiu, the main guys will live better without them. The guys does care, they adore and protect a lot. But it only feels like loving a pet bunny and not loving a man-girl and girl-man type of love.

      With Feng Jiu re-acting Feng Jiu the second time, and also repetitive with both Hua Qian Gu and Ling Xi, it is just too much at this point.

  3. Agreed with 1d. Im for one glad they didn’t follow peaches fanfic and going back to the original source. Enjoying the humor so far DH and his sweet sour fish 🤣 that no one can eat except the little red fox.

  4. I think Dilraba does a good job with the character. Feng Jiu would be annoying if not acted well.

  5. Hewo, I'm back. The person who wrote a million comments. For those of you who are confused, apparently it turns out that Yan Chiwu, who is played by Wayne Liu, is Zilan's TWIN brother, as a sort of excuse for the actor himself to star in the sequel as well. So the problem is pretty much cleared up! :) Tho I'm still sad. HE LOOKS SO WRONG IN THAT COSTUME!!

    1. Also, I NEED my Bai Qian now! (LMAO, my second time saying this.) Sorry to you 100% Feng Jiu fans, but it's just not the same without her! Back when I was watching TMOPB I loved Feng Jiu more, just 'cuz, but now that I'm a fan of YM and I grew up a bit (lol, I just turned 14), I NEED HER IN MY LIFE. WARNING TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT WATCHED THIS - SHE IS LESS A SUPPORTING CHARACTER THAN A GUEST CHARACTER. Pretty sure she only appears from time to time. No!!! Honestly from the recent reviews/ratings it's currently not faring as well as TMOPB, of course (irreplaceable *bliss*), but I'm still going to go with it because I'm loyal to the couple, lol.

  6. I don't understand why people continue to drag TMOPB into this drama when they are completely separate story lines with no overlapping plot. Jesus, if you like TMOPB and think this drama is not the one for you, just leave. This is the post about TPB drama. Have some respect now, will you? Stop commenting how much you missed TMOPB in here. Go to the post about TMOPB to write that. It's disrespectful as f**k.

    4. Well only novel fans would know the storyline are not related. The remaining people who only watched TMPOB would automatically assume this is a sequel to TMPOB, considering it is promoted that way. While it is annoying, its not entirely their fault.

  7. Dilraba and Vengo did a great job. I love the drama so much as I love TMOPB. I like the screen writer as well. Its funny that people judge and criticize rather than appreciate the hard work of the actress and actors and the production team.

  8. Even though how popular the drama was still have people who knows how to criticize than appreciate and even worst leave a hateful comment that show only that some people have jealousy on other people success. People should know the word RESPECT

  9. I'm just going to assume those last three comments are directed to me, so sorry guys. I didn't mean like I thought Eternal Love of Dream was bad. It just doesn't live up to TMOPB. And also sorry if you guys found it disrespectful that I was writing about how I was missing TMOPB. It's just that I'm kinda drama crazy lol and my family is NOT (plus friends know nothing about Asian dramas, LOL), so like I have to have someone to share this to. I'll stop now :)

    1. Also, I think comment #7 maybe misunderstood what I said on comment #5. I didn't mean to be disrespectful to Wayne Liu by saying it was an excuse for him to star in this drama too. Let's say a better word for that would be "reason", mmkay? That's just what I meant.

  10. I feel this is very unfair that TMOPB fans came in here and talked about how ELoD doesn't live up to TMOPB. This post is supposed to be a happy place for TPB fans who have been waiting for it for YEARS to come out. Why would you destroy that by making us annoyed?

    1. I'm not the 14 year girl or TMOPB fan, I didn't like TMOPB that much, but you are a bit too sensitive because TPB and TMOPB are connected. Comparisons are reasonable. Besides, TPB is hugely hyped and budgeted but so far 10 episodes are soooooooooooo booooooooooring, I thought TMOPB was boring but now I am appreciating it more. Hopefully we can voice out our opinion of the show, I just don't think they cared to make the drama interesting, they're probably after water injection and fast money.

  11. The girl wasn't even rude in the first place and already apologized, it's too much to continue being mean. TMPOB is the predecessor, of course expectations for TPB is high. Not to mention Love and Destiny at all, it came out not too long ago with a very similar story. To me, it doesn't have to be better than TMOPB or anything, I was anticipating it and I was hoping it will be "good". So far so disappointing but we'll see what happens next.

  12. TMPOB fans need to chill. TMPOB is my fave xianxia drama of all time but it took me almost 20+ episodes to love it. The first and second arc bored me. Likewise, y'all need to give Pillow Book time before judging it. But of course if naive female leads ain't your thing then you need to stop watching instead of getting angry and saying the drama is bad. The plot is fine, story is pretty fast paced and funny at times.

  13. Holy, holy you people are really overreacting. 26 comments on a single post wow. I read the 14 year old girl comments and agree with 11. She wasn't try to be rude and was by no means angry.

  14. I'm a fan of the novel, and agree that the first 8 episodes are boring, and a little cringey but only to me bc I don't like Fengjiu's character rn; naive, willful and stubborn. I'm hoping that it will get better, & so far it has bc it has followed the book pretty closely and has only changed some things to make more sense, in the book Fengjui matures a lot and she isn't so silly and childish. I think they are setting up how she grows to become more mature. I get why she's the way she is though, she's spoiled and the only red nine tailed fox, so she has been told her whole life that she's special, also she happens to be very beautiful and pretty talented in fighting so naturally she thinks she deserves the "master of the universe". She'll get less annoying, I actually like her more than Bai Qian, who was so clueless all the time and so helpless, and much too carefree, literally MY and YH saved her everytime. I think ELoD will get better, esp. if they follow the book. I hope so anyway.

  15. I agree that the drama so far is pretty boring and Fengjiu is annoying. One major flaw in her character I dont like is how she's not remorseful after she scratched one of the characters twice. I dont like her poor me attitude either by episode 9 and 10...very annoying

    Only reason I kept up is because I've read the book and see that the drama stays on track with the novel. I could understand why people who haven't read the novel gave up watch it

    1. Agree. I like the rest of the characters but Feng Jiu is absolutely unacceptable. I hate her behavior towards Ji Heng because she was jealous - it's like she acts cute and innocent around Dong Hua and is just aggressive with someone she doesn't like who isn't even evil.

      Delete
    2. Really? wtf I think it was ep 2 there was the annoying mean princess (Sui He from Ashes of Love) and instead of being mean to her Feng Jiu is mean to nice people? Unacceptable.

      Delete
    3. @15.B Yes, seriously. Don't want to spoil it for you but she scratched Ji Heng's face and fingers and she was bleeding. Then Feng Jiu self-pitied herself because Dong Hua didn't have time to play with her because he was trying to help Ji Heng's wounds go away. Wondered who wrote the script. Sheesh.

      Delete
    4. @15a - Ok, first of all, Fengjiu painstakingly fixed the weapon design and Ji Heng just took credit for it when it wasn't even her who fixed it. Fengjiu was in a fox form and she couldn't voice her aggrieve. So she did what she could, she bit her. And the second time when she scratch her, Ji Heng was trying to give her a bowl with her paw print on it which is very degrading for a princess who came from one of the most revered kingdoms of the 4 realms. Ji Heng didn't know she was a princess, sure. But if you look at it carefully, even Dijun never made her eat in a bowl. That's why she felt very wronged that Ji Heng was trying to make her. The problem here is the way the script was changed from the original plot. They changed His Heng's character a lot from the book because I think they want to give her character more depth for a greater picture. In the book, Ji Heng is a shallow person and in those two scenes where she got hurt by Fengjiu, she provoked the fox on purpose. Because Ji Heng knew Dijun loves that fox pet so much, she deliberately planned it so that the fox would hurt her. The script writer changed Ji Heng behaviors in those scenes but kept Fengjiu attacking her. That's why so many book fans can't stand the changes in Ji Heng character because it would make Fengjiu looked aggressive without solid reasons instead.

    5. Lol, Ji Heng is not evil? �� There's a reason why we call her Sujin 2.0 ��

    6. Yes she is too spoiled and self-entitled for my liking. Acting like its the entire worlds' fault that Dong Hua doesn't recognise her or like her. Hope she gets to redeem her spoilt self and low EQ in the latter episodes.

      Delete
    7. 'She is too spoiled and self-entitled' And she has every reason to be. She's the only red nine tailed fox in the whole universe, the only grandchild of the fox kingdom and raised to be the queen of Qingqiu since birth. Every single person has spoiled her for her status is the highest in her generation. 'Acting like its the entire world's fault that Dong Hua doesn't recognize her or like her' I'm sorry I might have dozed off in those scenes since I don't have any recollections of Fengjiu blaming anyone for Donghua's lack of affection towards her. All she ever said was they don't have fate and that's the theme of this drama. (And the book for that matter). Please tell me if I'm wrong.

      Delete
    8. Even if she has reason to be, it doesn't stop her behaviour so far from being grating. She might not say explicitly its her fault, but her actions so far is bordering on unreasonableness. Like what someone said above, it is indeed wrong for Ji Heng to claim credit, but it doesn't warrant violence. Its even worse during the second time when Ji Heng didn't even know she who she is, and mean no harm at all.

      Of course this is just my interpretation and my feeling toward Feng Jiu at the moment. You can feel free to disagree. But imo she is not any more likable than she was in Eternal Love despite being the main character this time round.

      Delete
    9. I agree with 15f.

      A spoiled and self centered person still shouldn't hurt others and have no remorse about it. No matter what the justification is for hurting someone, Fengjiu should have had some remorse for hurting Ji Heng especially with Ji Heng being a hemophiliac...Ji Heng could have bled a lot

      Delete
    10. 'Fengjiu should have had some remorse for hurting Ji Heng especially with Ji Heng being a hemophiliac...Ji Heng could have bled a lot'
      Fengjiu didn't know it though. Only when someone told her about it later, she got to know Ji Heng's situation. But at this point, I'm going to give up explaining the reasons why she did what she did. Because it's very obvious that Fengjiu character is not for everyone. I love the book and everything/every character in there so much, especially Fengjiu. She's such an amazing character especially when she has so much responsibilities on her shoulders at that young age. But I can't force anyone else to see it the way I see it so....whatever, I guess. As long as the fans are enjoying it, I shouldn't care much about what others think.

  17. Ok thanks for the update 12 eps in, I LOVE IT Definitely was worth the wait.

    1. Me too! I can't wait to see her character developments at all. ☺️☺️ There's a reason why Donghua said if he ever were to choose his empress, only Fengjiu is fit to be.

  18. In the book Jiheng is definitely more unlikable. Also, I think after this arc is when you'll see how she's changed but she's still Fengjui: fierce, mischievous, and a troublemaker (well, sometimes trouble finds her). I'm waiting on the really really good bits. Hoping they don't screw it up, bc the book was surprisingly good.

    1. Imo so far she seems like a weak damsel in distress who is likely to turn evil and crazy. Its like Su Jin + Xuan Nu in one character; double the annoyance and screen time. Argh. I dislike the actress as well so I fast forward her boring scenes.

    2. Ji Heng character as Su Jin + Xuan Nu! ���� You perfectly described her! ������

    3. People, this is about the drama. Maybe in the book she is partly evil, but in the drama itself, Ji Heng is an amazing likable princess. To 18a: I don't think you're watching with subtitles or something, because that's not true. Just because she doesn't have superb fighting skills doesn't mean she's a damsel in distress.

      Delete
    4. I don't need to watch with subtitles. I can understand Chinese.
      And yes she seems like a damsel in distress to me because she seems to bring nothing but trouble; its not about how strong she is.
      She isn't likable the moment she tried to claim credit.
