Ever since Eternal Love 三生三世十里桃花 climbed its way to number one on Feb. 11, the show has been holding steady, garnering CSM52 viewership ratings around the 1.6xx range on Dragon TV for the past couple weeks and breaking past 1.0 on Zhejiang TV (note that both are being broadcasted on the same timeslot).
Its afternoon broadcast on Anhui TV is in first place as well but on top of all of that, web broadcasts are estimated to have accumulated an astounding 25 billion views. Update: 30 billion over views as of the series finale. In fact, its leads Yang Mi and Mark Chao are now being dubbed as gufu and gugu in reference to their respective characters as a married couple. They’re both married in real life though and not to each other.
It’s insane how well the show is doing but actually not that insane given that everything about it is incredibly from casting to the script to the one of a kind cinematography that I have honestly never seen before. Tonight welcomes the finale and it remains to be seen just how high ratings can go. Despite what transpired in last night’s episode, I’m crossing my fingers for a happy ending.
This one sure is a really beautiful drama and it's been a while I watched this good. The book stole my heart and seems like the drama doesn't intend to give it back either. LOL
I know that Feng Jiu and Dong Hua's happy ending is not possible in here because they still have a lot to go according to the book but I'm still waiting for a bearable ending. How I wish for them to have an open ending at least since they are the ones I love most, be it in the book or in the drama.
I picked this up after General&I, and while I like General & I main couple much better, Three Lives definitely wins on script and that's what drives the ratings of this drama. It keeps the narrative moving forward with the evil side characters that is worthy, who doesn't like it when she literally took her eyes back from that damn B, it's those moments that viewers are tuning in and there's a satisfying feeling when she finally got her eyes back. Definitely worthy of all the ratings success. I'm so happy for Mark Chao, he's popular movie actor and happy that he's even more popular now.
Mark and Yangmi's chemistry over G&I couple any day. The drama wouldn't be successful without them. Chinese call then Gugu and Gufu tell you how much good they are and they didn't with AB and Wallace right?
I beg to disagree!!! The Main lead in "Ten Miles fo Peach Blossoms" YANG MI and MARK CHAO are way too PERFECT! AWESOME! ELEGANT! AMAZING! than ANY OTHER couple together…YANG MI and MARK CHAO were the one who made this MegaHit drama..Had it been other stars it would not have been this SUPER Blockbuster!! BRAVO and SALUTE to both of them!!!
I agree they're chemistry is superb from other C-drama couple. I wish they will have more project together. I even ship them in real life hahahha but I found out they are both married.(my ship immediately sunk)LOL . This Drama has oozing visuals from all characters, plus added the storyline.OMG!! it truelly deserved No.1 spot.
