My Top-5 Favourite Chinese Dramas

Hello everybody! Today I wanna share with you something a bit different from usual. You may not know, but I’ve studied Mandarin for 10 years. And during this learning process, I’ve discovered the Chinese Dramas aka series. And this is how started a great love story, or should I rather say, an addiction… 🤔

Anyway, when learning the language and about the culture as well, I got used to watch different c-dramas, as we call them. And over the last decade I’ve like some of them, dislike others etc.

You maybe don’t know what a c-drama is. It’s quite simple, actually. Usually you get a large amount of episodes (around 40 in general) each episode being about 45minutes long. It’s not like western series which may have multiple seasons.

Today, I wanted to share with you my favourite ones, 5 in total. You can find most of them on YouTube with English subtitles (if I can find them I’ll link the playlist for you). So if you looking for something new and refreshing to watch, if you are learning Mandarin or whatsoever, you should give it a try. ☺️

Here are my top-5 favourite c-dramas!

#1 Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (Eternal Love) from 2017

It’s a wuxia-fantasy one. The story takes place in the legendary world of gods and spirits. It’s the love story between two high gods, Bai Tian a white nine tails fox and Yehua the Crown Prince from the Heaven Kingdom.

Here is a playlist with all the episodes on YouTube, with subtitles: Watch.
