Sweet Dreams 一千零一夜 seems to have turned into an outrageous cryfest in the later episodes with tragic secrets, hostile takeovers and an illness to top it off. Yet one of the most memorable things about a show called sweet dreams are the light moments that are adorably packed into dream sequences. Did you catch the pop culture references behind each one?
Sleeping Beauty. We’ve got a castle, a dragon, a prince and a sleeping beauty. Except our beauty is the one doing most of the saving. She calls herself Queen Mary while he introduces himself as Jack.
Seven Heroes and Five Gallants. Anyone familiar with the classic wuxia series would immediately recognize the characters by their costumes. In red is Zhan Zhao, the Southern hero and in white is Bai Yutang, his long-standing rival. If you’d like to know more, Kevin Yan and Chen Xiao portrayed the titular cat and mouse in The Three Heroes and Five Gallants.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream. My favorite set, they both look lovely here.
A Chinese Ghost Story. A beautiful ghost falls in love with a scholar. You may have heard of the upcoming remake based on this story. Casting for the role of Nie Xiaoqian has not been announced. Perhaps Dilraba should also be in the running.
It’s horrible. I would be ok with romcom, but it’s stupid and silly.
Love the dreams and I miss them. There was also one where qiqi was in green servant costume. Was that also from seven heroes one. Agreed love the costumes from a Midsummer night's dream best and I was happy when I recognized it since I read the novel.
The reality parts get less and less interesting. I love the dreams too!
I really love those funny Bai Yu Tang and Zhan Zhao dream, nobody in the world can ever beat my favorite cat&mouse Vincent Jiao and Coco Sun Xing. But DLRB and DL are really funny here.
They both look very good and passable for the scholar and Nie Xiaoqian, haven't got to that part!
