1997

My Fair Princess 10/10 9.5/10

A real classic and the drama that introduced you to todays’ top star: Zhao Wei, Fan Bingbing, Ruby Lin and Alec Su. It was a cute and sweet drama to watch when you are young and it took the whole Asia by storm. Mythic drama moments can be found in it and I think with Journey to the West, these are the two dramas I watched before even realizing they are dramas!

1998

My Fair Princess II 9/10 8/10

2000

Journey to the West (season 2) 10/10

2003

Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils 10/10 10/10

Heavenly Sword and Dragon Sword 10/10 10/10

Opinion may be biased because I watched them so many times. Some people may find these versions very scary and filmed with creepy music in the back. However, for me these are the golden years of wuxia dramas, when CG still did not contaminate every scenes like it is doing so today. The cast was also really well chosen. Thanks to Jing Yong’s great writing, I could watch the drama a hundred times and still be obsessed with it.

2004

Home with Kids 9/10 9/10

2005

My Bratty Princess 9/10 9/10

In 2005? I was sure it was even before! This drama where K-actress Jang Nara and C-actor Alec Su starred in is a great drama for any period dramas newbie. It is fun, but the costumes and fighting scenes are also great. Thanks to Alec Su, I was obsessed with marrying an emperor for a loooong time.

Return of Condor Heroes 8/10 8/10

It is worth watching just to look at Liu Yifei floading around in a perfect white dress. She is gorgeous and all her fighting scenes in this are gorgeous.

2007

Soldiers Sortie 士兵突击 10/10

Best Chinese modern TV series ever! I watched it at least 3 times and got goosebumps each time, it is just so perfectly done and moving at the same time. A lot of bromance about soldiers of poor family background trying to make it in the army world.
