10 Miles of Peach Blossoms – ep 1 (no spoilers)

I watched the first episode of 10 Miles of Peach Blossoms…

Love the fantasy! I didn’t feel for a moment that it was too OTT for me with its magical premise, and these people look really good for living thousands of years, lol. I like the sprite, spunky heroine, even those there’s no way I would mistake her for being anything other than completely feminine. She’s so delicate of face and form, and “mostly” honorable. Whatever her ultimate intention is here, I believe it’s for good. Struck me funny when she told the master not to lie to her….okay….. The master seems to be a very introspective type of man, but loyal and honorable to a fault. Not like a god of war at all. Seems he’s been hurt, too, cause it shows in his eyes. I’m not sure if he knows the truth about the heroine because what he says about her is far from how he acts toward her. She’s already garnered a special place as his 17th disciple.

Lots of eps though, but I like what I see so far…

Oh, those smiles…

Hands down, the best reason to watch Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms is to see Ye Hua, as played by Mark Chao, and his pure delight in being next to his lady love. Some dedicated individual compiled his many (many) scenes of smiling at her (Yang Mi).

No spoilers, just bliss!

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.

Up next? Dokkaebi (Goblin)?

It’s got to be Gong Yoo. I’ve been salivating at the prospect of a series full of him, much more than I was with Lee Minho. He will be mine, starting maybe tonight, but no later than this weekend!

And I will say that the Yang Mi/Mark Chao drama “Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms” is getting really favorable/swoony comments on some of the recap sites. (Not that I’m looking <cough>).
