“During the battle at Jinshan Temple, the White Snake surprisingly defeated Fahai. She vowed to never leave Xu Xian. Even though the White Snake did not age, Xu Xian could not fight against time. As time passed by, Xu Xian was becoming bold, toothless and age spots appeared.” In order to let the audience entirely immerse in the performance and relate to their own personal experiences, adapting the drama from commonly known love stories, Huang Chih-Kai decided to resort to a more approachable way of storytelling. He deeply believes that “a great drama can not only make you laugh but also make you think.” Via the moral lessons and life value that Three Storyteller hopes to convey to the viewers, the drama tries to ask the audience “is appearance really irrelevant when choosing your significant other, the person who will share your bed with?”
