Dylan Wang, Esther Yu
When a low-ranked fairy accidentally resurrects a powerful demon, their fates become cosmically entangled as the world is thrown into turmoil. (Synopsis)
I don't watch many Chinese dramas (mostly just some BL), but I kept seeing this one mentioned online, so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did, as I ended up really loving it. The storyline was compelling and held my interest throughout, as did the romance between Little Orchid and Dongfang Qingcang. The two lead actors both gave great performances, and I was in love with Dylan Wang within the first few episodes. The music, too, was great, especially the opening song and its animation. I am currently inspired to make a lot of fan art for this series and hope to buy the DVD soon. I already ordered the novel on which it's based (even though it's in Chinese and I'm still a beginner at the language), but I'm crossing my fingers that the show's success might lead to an English translation eventually (like with The Untamed). This is most definitely a series I recommend if you like high fantasy that blends action and romance. It gets a full five stars from me.
