Promotions are ramping up for the C-drama premiere of fantasy romance Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Mile Peach Blossoms, airing on January 30th with a head start on the movie version which doesn’t hit the theaters until summer of 2017. Starring Yang Mi and Mark Chao, the drama is a visual feast of contrasting colors of white, black, and red attired characters, with the backdrop in soft palates of peach like the titular peach blossoms.
The story is adapted from a popular novel by writer Tang Qi Gong Zi (pen name Tang Dynasty’s 7th Gentleman), chronicling the three incarnation sweet and tortured romance of the leads. Yang Mi is a fixture in C-dramas but this is the first time Mark has cone a television project since his debut breakout in TW-drama Black & White so this is a definite must check out for me. Doesn’t hurt that the preview looks alluring and the official BTS discussions center on the director explaining the effort taken to make the drama feel less fantasy and more grounded in reality.
