With so much anticipation building for Feng Jiu and Donghua’s return, Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book 三生三世枕上书 finally unveils its cast wherein Baron Chen and Dylan Kuo are surprising additions (Bromance or The Outsiders, anyone?).
There are some replacements like Zhe Yan and Bai Zhen which were originally played by Ken Chang and Alan Yu Menglong, and some returnees like Wang Xiao who reprises his role as Si Ming (loved that character). Jaywalk Studio remains to be one of the production companies though it collaborates with internet giant Tencent to make the drama this time around. While I would’ve preferred as little change as possible behind the scenes, the most important thing is that Dilraba Dilmurat and Vengo Gao are back! I’m so glad that the styling and costumes are still peach blossomy good, and I really cannot wait.
Dilraba Dilmurat as Bai Fengjiu
Vengo Gao Weiguang as Donghua
Baron Chen as Zhe Yan
Dylan Kuo as Su Mo Ye
Liu Yuefei as Ji Wei
Liu Ruilin as Yan Chi Wu
Wang Xiao as Si Ming
Li Dongheng as Lian Song
Yuan Yuxuan as Cheng Yu
Huang Junjie as Bai Zhen
Dilreba’s hair is different though
ohh it doesnt look bad at all, i'm excited to how they'll lead this story
huang jun jie as bai zhen is something i'll look forward to… hope he'll rise through this role!
i'm sooo excited for this!! loving the costumes but i do prefer dilireba's old hairstyle but its jsut posters, they'll probably change things too as the drama evolves ~
has anyone seen Vengo in Fuyao? the guy is not good in acting department. I hope he can carry this drama as a male lead, he's very lacking in range. his delivery in emotional scenes are very limited, and very cringeworthy
I have watched him since he debuted in Sword of Legends. I think he is doing fine and did awesome with his supporting role of DongHua Dijun so Im sure he'll be even more outstanding with the main role!
Too bad they change the casting for Zhe Yan n Bai Zhen, i love their chemistry and bickering in TMOPB. If only they can keep the original cast
These look gorgeous. The lap pose reminds me of the Peach Blossoms one, where she's resting her head on his lap. I love how they are sticking to similar dynamics and aesthetics of the first drama. Dong Hua's more casual look with more white makes him seem more approachable too then before, which is appropriate since this drama will delve into him more as a person then just a high god. <3<3<3 So So So happy these two are reprising their roles. That flat out, was the best news I've had all year.
Agreed and it's not just Fuyao lmao! This guy is a very weak actor and lacks in charisma. He's just about OK as a side character because he isn't the focus but a whole drama with him as the lead is going to be another story.
i think its fitting sincce she did take over bai qian's role so she'd have to look a bit more mature even tho i dont know how far in the future its set
Between the novels, I like Pillow Book better. Is this an original adaptation? I mean they have licensing right? I'm crossing my fingers they won't alter too much of the plot. They should portrait Bai Fengjiu as a capable warrior that she is, and with that sword in her hand, I'm now looking forward to this. Memories of Donghua's shamelessness still makes me smile, despite being one of the few oldest living immortals, he's not beneath bullying his juniors to defend his wifu! hehehe
I very much agree!
You may all want to for updates on the soompi forum and google the pillow book. I agree that Vengo may need to step it up to be lead. He always have that same look. It may work well with being stoic, but not when he will be required to act with 3 different roles.
From the future in 2020, I am confident to say thay you would be blown away by his exemplary performance of SXR, DJ and SY.
They will need to use the same edit as 3l3w since that was what made everyone so ethereal.
Indeed. The filters in the show were very inconsistent. I only liked the filters used in the women festival DJ marriage proposal scene and the drunk FJ in the mortal arc scene. Such a waste for Vengo's and DLRB's visual.
With Vengo Gao as the lead, I'm definitely skipping pillowbook, I skipped his part in TMOPB and I'm doing so now in Legend of fuyao. He just cannot act.
We should not judge on his acting ability purely based solely on his previous works in which mainly were unlikable supporting roles. Biasness can blind your judgement.
I would highly recommend to check out Candle of the Tome:Wrath of time. His protrayer of Zhe Gushao is another level.
His character is supposed to be super cold/stoic meaning no change in expression—- so he shoooouuuuld be able to do ok!! and at least we have dilraba to look at lol
There is no mark chao as yehua and yang mi?
Yang Mi briefly appears in ep 22 when Feng Jiu got back from the mortal arc. Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts, Mark was unable to make any cameo appearance. Though BQ and YH were still often mentioned in the dialogues.
