Last year’s fantasy hit Eternal Love <三生三世十里桃花> ended things on a bittersweet note when a fan-favorite couple failed to find happiness together. But after much rallying by the fans, the studios finally decided that it was time to make a sequel.
The sequel, temporarily titled The Pillow Book <三生三世枕上书> will center on the love story between the Emperor Lord Dong Hua, portrayed by Vengo Gao (高伟光), and the nine-tailed fox demon Bai Fengjiu, portrayed by Dilireba (迪丽热巴).
The Pillow Book was given the green light last year, but many fans expressed their apprehension about the sequel when the studios announced their intention to recast the main leads. At one point, it was rumored that Zhu Xudan (祝绪丹) would play Bai Fengjiu while Joe Xu (徐海乔) was considered for the role of Dong Hua.
Fortunately, that won’t be happening. Fans rejoiced—and “cried” according to some fans—when the studios confirmed that Dilireba and Vengo will reprise their roles as Bai Fengjiu and Dong Hua, respectively. In Eternal Love, Bai Fengjiu and Dong Hua did not end up together because fate would not have it, and many fans cried at their ending.
The Pillow Book will begin shooting this year.
