Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (Eternal Love) – Initial impressions

No spoilers – Because I found myself wanting to savor Goblin, I had a little extra time the other day and took in a few episodes of Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (Eternal Love), with Mark Chao who we liked in Black and White with Vic Chou, and Yang Mi, who we liked in Jade Palace Lock Heart.

Of course, that was a mistake. Because they’re only about 40 minutes tops, the episodes go by pretty quickly, so I found myself staying up too late for “just another episode more,” then inexplicably woke up early and thought, “Well, I can squeeze in a few more now.” The result is that I’ve watched the first 16 episodes.

It’s more fantasy world than I like – not like BBJX and time-travel fantasy – but gods and mystical beasts and so on, but the main couple are fairly compelling. Mark Chao looks amazing in the long wigs – they must be human hair – and the slightly shaped eyebrows that lift up at the outer edges, and he and Yang Mi make a good looking couple.

It’s still on air, but as with the Chinese dramas they whip out a bunch of episodes quickly on air, so they’ve got almost the whole thing online already on Dramafever. I’ll jump back in when I have finished Dokkaebi.
