I have a feeling that Yang Mi and her performance in the recently concluded mega hit fantasy romance C-drama Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles Peach Blossoms (Eternal Love) will actually get better with time. Most dramas and performances don’t age well, and some can’t even stand up to a second watch. But so far into my second watch of the amazingly well-adapted drama from the same name popular novel, there is such quiet restraint and unassuming control in the way Yang Mi plays three distinct roles – there is Si Yin as the girl pretending to be a boy, Su Su the mortal with a fiery personality, and both combining into the goddess Bai Qian with foxy coldness and je ne sais quoi allure. She’s been one of China’s top drama actresses for the last 5 years but this is the best I have seen from her, the culmination of all the potential she exuded when she debuted back in 2006 with Return of the Condor Heroes as a memorable side character. This pictorial in Bazaar China brings Yang Mi back to the peach blossoms and her white form, all ethereal beauty with underlying strength, and I can’t gush enough about it.
