The Eternal Love S3 双世宠妃 III has been teasing fans this past week with some new content and a trailer to boot. Dare we hope all this activity means it’s finally coming out just in time for summer? Both Xing Zhaolin and Liang Jie return to the small screens to reprise their pairing as Mo Lian Cheng and Qu Xiao Tan in the third instalment of the The Eternal Love franchise. There’s a saying that goes “if it ain’t broke, why fix it” .. Why fix it indeed if Xing Zhaolin and Liang Jie’s great chemistry works? The industry seems to think so too judging from the number of times they’ve cast the pair together – twice now for the first two seasons in The Eternal Love series, once in Fated to Love You’s recent remake You are My Destiny and now, this!
In its follow up to The Eternal Love 2, viewers are in for another round of time travelling slash parallel world shenanigans with a very big twist! First, Xiao Tan and Mo Lian Cheng’s new reality finds gender roles suddenly reversed. Then, there’s the added complication of Cheng Cheng without any of his memories of Xiao Tan at all!
With Xiao Tan reigning supreme and Cheng Cheng forced to enter the palace to participate in the spouse selection process, his lack of memories pose quite a dilemma to the high-spirited princess. Xiao Tan is up for the challenge though and so begins the chase as our spunky princess tries every means necessary to entice Mo Lian Cheng … only to have him hilariously thwart her efforts every time!
In any case, the drama already wrapped its filming activities at the end of August last year so it’s just a matter of time. I for one find the recent flurry of activities on their official page quite encouraging though. Fingers crossed it won’t be such a long wait.
In the meantime, catch Xiao Tan and her Cheng Cheng in the drama’s new trailer.
