Good news everybody! First things first, the long awaited and most guesstimated airing of Eternal Love of Dream also known as Three Lives Three Worlds, The Pillow Book 三生三世枕上书 has already been announced for a January 22 premier. Yup, you read it right – the 22nd so leave a reminder to clear up your calendar for Wednesday if you want to catch this!
With that out of the way, let’s talk about the story – like Bai Qian and Ye Hua’s, it’s complicated. The 58 episode series will focus on the 2000 year old romantic entanglement between Qingqiu Princess Bai Fengjiu (played by Dilraba Dilmurat) and the Emperor of Heaven, Dong Hua Di Jun (played by Vengo Gao Weiguang), and their love that endures despite the numerous trials and tribulations lasting three lifetimes.
Feng Jiu and Dong Hua’s story begins when Dong Hua rescues her from a monster that attacked her whilst practicing her cultivation in the mountains. In gratitude, Feng Jiu insists on repaying her debt to Dong Hua by following him into battle where she soon realises that her initial feelings of gratitude have transformed into feelings of love.
But Dong Hua in his thousands of years struggle against evil has already forgotten what love means. In his bid to protect Feng Jiu, he sends her to the human realm, which unfortunately caused her friends to die in order to protect her. To find the legendary Saha fruit that has the power to bring her friend back to life,
Feng Jiu enters the fantasy dreamland of Princess Aranya from the Winged Tribe, reliving the princess’ hard life for eternity. That is, until Dong Hua manages to take Feng Jiu back. But a happy ending is far from happening for the two despite their multiple lifetimes, as another complication threatens to tear the fated lovers apart.
The three posters represent their various incarnations –
As Fengjiu and Dongua (1), as Concubine Chen and Emperor Song (2), and as Aranya and Chen Ye (3).
The drama also stars Baron Chen as Zhe Yan, Dylan Kuo as Aranya’s teacher Su Moye, Liu Yuefeias Ji Heng, Wayne Liu Ruilin as Yan Chiwu, Wang Xiao as Si Ming, Li Dongheng as Dong Hua’s good friend Lian Song, Yuan Xuyuan as Cheng Yu, Huang Junjie as Bai Zhen, Zhang Mingcan as little Ah Li and Kou Yunhao as Bai Gungun.
And, to psych you up for the Wednesday start, here’s a little NEW teaser for a taste of what’s to come.

Beyond excited! Been waiting for this since i finished Ten Miles! ??
Why does this sound so different from the book we have read? ������ Especially how the mortal realm Arc happened. Oh, well, maybe the drama changed their plot a little bit.(or a lot in this case). I'm excited non the less. Have been waiting for this adaption for years now.
Oh my gosh it's here!! I know it's going to be so sad – preparing for tons of tears!!!! UGH HELP SO EXCITED. TWO MORE DAYS!!!! SOMEONE HELP ME I'M GOING CRAZY AND MY FAMILY IS STARING AT ME BECAUSE I AM SQUEALING.
Also, why isn't Bai Qian (YM) in this??? I'm going to cry I can't believe she and Ye Hua (MC) won't be covered!!! UGH SOMEONE I'M NOT KIDDING HELP. I'M GOING THROUGH A MAJOR BREAKDOWN OF BOTH DISAPPOINTMENT AND EXCITEMENT. PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME.
the drama has a new official English name now – Eternal Love of Dream
I've been waiting for this for so long. Wow it will airs tomorrow looking forward, the teaser make me happy and sad.
OMG OMG OMG IT'S TOMORROW! SOMEBODY PINCH ME I MUST BE DREAMING!!!! *squeals into oblivion*
I'm soooo happy watched 12 episodes it was worth the wait after damn near 3yrs since Ten Miles of Peach Blossom/ Eternal Love debuted. I impatiently waited for The Pillow Book so far thoroughly LOVE BOTH ETERNAL LOVE series.
Guys I'm laughing at myself lmao. I was so happy when they announced that this was coming out in late 2018 because I had total second lead syndrome in TMOPB (but I still love the main couple, of course). Well, guess what? LOL, I ALSO have second lead syndrome (Ji Heng and Yan Chiwu) now, with THIS drama!
It does? Tencent explained that the Pillow Book was going to be more accurate to the novel than TMOPB's story line, since they finally got the copyrights. Well, I guess I've never read the book, so I can't exactly judge.
Wonderful, I love dilraba,she's cute
Dilraba IS cute, but I feel like she only relies on her looks to keep up her acting career. Not to be a hater or anything, sorry!!! But it's true.
Loving the drama and so glad it was worth the torturous wait. Dilraba is too cute as Fengjiu. Can't wait for more moments between the leads. Wishing the drama team lotsa success!
Sigh. Don't like either Feng Jiu or Dong Hua characters, especially Feng Jiu. I loved her in TMOPB, but she's just plain immature in this, literally hurt innocent Ji Heng two times. Dong Hua is also too harsh on Zhihe. If it was Feng Jiu who had done that (don't worry, I'm not spoiling it for you guys), he would've forgiven her right away, and she's his long-time "foster sister"! ARGH WHO WROTE THIS SCRIPT. PLEASE TELL ME IF THIS IS THE SAME SCRIPTWRITER FROM TMOPB. This is making me dislike the main characters and if one of them gets hurt or something I will NOT be sad.
I agree with you. Fengjiu is really annoying and I just couldn't like her in that 2 instances where she hurt another character. I admit that Dilrabas acting has improved compare to her past dramas. She's not the best actress, but she has improved. Vengo Gao's acting also has improved but still cringy.
I find myself fast forward through the episodes lately. The drama doesn't have the pull of TMPB. Unfortunately I think it's different script writers from TMPB
