Why do foxes never fall in love with other foxes? Interspecies love must be so hard.

Azure Hills (Qing Qiu) seems to be the Hollywood of Chinese mythology lately, with foxes popping out left and right to capture the heart of the mortal world.  Here’s the latest set of stills from Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Acres of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花 , featuring Azure Hills’ new stars,  Baiqian (Yang Mi), Fengjiu (Dilraba), and their friends Mark Zhao, Gao Weiguang, Yu Menglong, Ken Chang, Zhang Binbin, Zhu Xudan,  and Huang Mengying.

Finally, Dilraba and Gao Weiguang, aka the pair of Yang Mi workshop who everyone’s been waiting to pair up, will be a pair.  While the film version starring Liu YIfei and Yang Yang will only focus on one book,  Someone come up with a good English title because I can’t bare to type this again  Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms  三生三世十里桃花,  the drama version appears to be combining both this and the sequel (which I refuse to translate but is 三生三世枕上书 in Chinese).

The first features Yang Mi and Mark Zhao in a love of three lifetimes – she’s a fox goddess, he’s a god, they’re engaged. She gets punished and become a human, they fall in love and have a kid.  She loses her memory and becomes a goddess again.   The second features Dilraba as her niece, another fox spirit who falls in love with another immortal. It’s a very cute role, if a bit self-deprecating and clingy, but Dilraba works clingy like a pro so I’m sure she’ll be great at it.  And in case you’re wondering, this Azure Hills is the same one for the Foxes of Azure Hills.

There are also other ships like Yu Menglong, Ken Chang, and a lot of people who work for Yang Mi.
