Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (Chinese: 三生三世十里桃花) is a 2017 Chinese romantic fantasy television series starring Yang Mi and Mark Chao. It is based on the xianxia novel of the same name by TangQi GongZi. The series started broadcasting on Jiangsu TV and Dragon TV starting January 30, 2017 with a total of 58 episodes.
The drama started off with a very pretty background and a bunch of disciples chasing after a flying fan up in the mountain where KunLunXu is based.
Our female lead showed up with another guy, known as Zhe Yan immortal, who changed her appearance into a male. He told her that Kunlunxu do not take female disciple therefore she must disguise herself as a male and will be called Xi Yin.
At the entrance of Kunlunxu, the flying fan came to a stop in front of Xi Yin and acknowledged her as the master. All the disciples were surprised. Because of the fan, MoYuan, the teacher he decided to accept her into the clan. Just like that, Xi Yin and Moxue Zilan (another guy) became the disciples of Moxuan of Kunlunxu. Mo Yuan also gave her Molun Kunlunxan (aka the fan) as a gift for accepting the younger position in the clan (#17 disciple).
A little background to our female lead. The imomortals are split into three remainders: Dragon, Wind, and Fox. Our female lead, real name Bai Qian, is the daughter of the Qing Qiu Fox king but because she often causes trouble, Zhe Yan was asked to send her to Kunlunxu for discipline. Just like that she stayed as a Kunlunxu’s disciple for 20,000 years.
After, Xi Yin and Zilan came back from the mortal world, the lady in white, who they met in the mortal world, captured Xi Yin. She is known as Yao Guan immortal, someone who is in love with MoYuan.
Yao Guan wanted Xi Yin to leave Mo Yuan but she rejected. Yao Guan locked her up in a water chamber. After Kulunxu’s disciples found that Xi Yin was missing, they notified Mo Yuan. Mo Yuan barged into Yao Guan’s territory and rescued Xi Yin.
After Xi Yin woke up, she was told that a female guest is here to see her. The guest, Xuan Nu, is a relative from her clan. She brought a letter from Xi yin’s 4th brother. In the letter, Xi Yin’s brother told her that Xuan Nu ran away from an arranged marriage and thought that it was best if Xi Yin can take her in and take care of her. Mo Yuan agreed to let Xuan Nu stayed but she will be in Xiyin’s room.
The episode started with a flash back of Mo Yuan’s dad asking him to care for a golden lotus until it becomes human. Back to reality, Mo Yuan told his disciple to watch over Xi Yin while he “meditate” for a long period of time.
Xi Yin can’t sit still so she convinced Lin Yu, her shixong to visit Qinqiu’s party where the Fox king and Zhe Yan will be there. On the way there, they got attacked by a group of masked people and bumped into the king of Ghost tribe.
The two got captured and led back to Ghost Tribe’s headquarter. The Ghost’s tribe princess hinted that she is interested in Xi Yin. Because the Ghost king knew that they are MoYuan’s disciples, he still wanted to adopt Ling Yu into his clan to instigate war between the Ghost tribe and the Heaven clan.
Yang Zi helped Xi Yin escape but accidently led her to Li Jing, Ghost Tribe’s second prince, instead. During the struggle, they both fell into a lake. Afterward, Li Jing decided to help her escape.
On Qing Qiu tribe’s side, the wife of the second prince of the Fox clan gave birth to a daughter. Because of the birthmark on her forehead, she was name Feng Qiu.
Xi Yin woke up after 10 days of being in a drunk coma. While her and Li Jing were discussing Lin Yu’s state and plans to escape Li Jing’s older brother barged in. Li Jing guessed that Xi Yin is a girl and Xi Yin admitted it.
Next day, drunk Li Jing barged into Xi Yin’s room and told her that he likes her.
On the heaven’s side, the Ghost King had sent out invitations to everyone regarding the adoption ceremony of Lin Yu. Mo Yuan found out and decided to personally meet this Ghost King and save his disciples.
Mo Yuan barged into Ghost Tribe’s territory and rescued his two disciples. He faced off with the Ghost King on his way out. Toward the end of the fight, the Ghost King charged toward Xi Yin and Li Jing defended her.
At the same time, Xi Yin’s “heaven trial” came. Mo Yuan took his two disciples and returned to Kunlunxu. He seals Xi Yin’s in a cave and accepted the lightning from heaven. After the trial, Xi Yin fainted. When she woke up, Mo Yuan had already locked himself up to heal. Mo Yuan smiled slightly hearing how Xi Yin want to make soup for him.
Because Li Jing defend Xi Yin, Ghost King got angry and locked him up. His sister, Yan Zhi, helped him escaped. Once freed, he decided that he will head to Kunlunxu.
The heaven people gathered together to discussed the war between the Ghost Tribes. The Heaven King thought that it will be best to help Li Jing ascend the throne to control the Ghost Tribes better.
While Li Jing arrived at the base of Kunlunxu. He fought to get in and suceeded when a Kunlunxu’s disciple helped him. He met with Xi Yin and told her that he likes her and want to be with her.
Chemix: Not bad so far. Nothing exceptional yet that would keep me wanting more but nothing bad yet that makes me want to stop either. hahaha so I guess I’ll be continuing this drama. Pros: I do like the subtle humors that they have in this drama and the backdrops are gorgeous! Con: too many characters/names/tribes to keep track of. They’ve pretty much introduced everyone within 2 episodes and somehow their name all sounds so familiar!
