San Qian Yuan Di (三千院 帝 San Qian Yuan Di), or known as Mr. Di (帝老爺 Di Lao Ye) is Mikado Sanzenin's counterpart in the live action TV series. He is Xiao Zhi's grandfather and the head of the San Qian Yuan family.


Di Lao Ye is an old man with black hair and a mustache. He always wears a tuxedo in the mansion. When he is out motorcycling with his racing gang, he wears a motorcycle racer uniform with a helmet.

Characteristics and personality

Unlike his counterpart, Di Lao Ye is caring about his granddaughter because Xiao Zhi is the only thing that his daughter, Jing, left in this world for him. Xiao Zhi's face always reminds Di Lao Ye about his daughter. He was doubting Xiao Sa once and tried to test him about his loyalty, but later approved of him when he saw that Xiao Sa really cared for his granddaughter.
