      I am not a newbie for C-dramas. I would say that I have watched quite a lot. But, surprisingly I haven't heard about most of these dramas. And I am disappointed that they did not mention the latest dramas. The latest dramas are all worth watching. Some of them are:

      1. Skate into love

      2. The love equations

      And what I am currently watching is "Intense Love"

      I hope all the newbies and others watch these dramas. They are very enjoyable and while watching you develop different feeling for the characters and actors

If you've watched Eternal love - Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (which was also very good!), you definitely have to watch this drama. Other very good drama recommendations:

      - Ashes of Love

      - Yanxi Gonglue

      - Princess Weiyoung

      - Story of Ming Lan

      - Legend of FuYao

      I voted for Eternal love because the story is incomparable to the other dramas on the list plus it has good editing and effect but if you were to ask me "Untamed" is the best wuxia drama (if I'm not mistaken) that I've ever watch. It's something that never lets you skip anything. I can't get over it. It's so beautiful. It's a masterpiece.

      Ashes of love has the best effects but I don't know, we have our own preferences, I think Eternal love is bettet.

      Nirvana in fire- my favorite one, then "Untamed" came so... But believe me, this drama is worth to watch

      The rise of the phoenixes- it started beautiful then it gets complicated and the ending sucks.

      Legend of Fuyao- I guess this drama is somewhat inspired by Eternal love. The MCs lived in different settings but unlike in EL where the MCs fell in love in the Mortal world and World of Gods; in here, they fell in love, separated, travelled to different land and met again then their love continued.

      King's Woman- I hate the ending. I hate watching drama with "tragedy" tag but the plot of this drama is good.

      Love me if you Dare- I liked this drama very much. It's worth to watch

      Secret of Three Kingdoms- an interesting story. It was good.

And Nirvana in fire just no. 5? Is it lower ranked than Love me if you dare for example? I like Love me if you dare, but... I'm surprised.

      I was shocked to see the result of the survey. I know love 020 is popular but never realized that people are sleeping on NIRVANA IN FIRE. I myself always craving for such a good painful romance, but I would without a doubt drop all that (even Ethernal Love) for NIRVANA in FIRE. Such brilliant work with amazing actors that made me weep and ache for them.

      But I guess it is not a cup of tea for most people.

      It takes time to watch how the main character managed to break one by one his oponents in with such scheme that nothing deviate from his original plan.

      Ashes of Love and Eternal Love tie in my book. These were both absolutely amazing and I could not stop watching! Legend of Fuyao is my 3rd favorite., and Rise of Phoenixes would have been at the top except for the awful ending.

      I've only watched Eternal love and Rise of the phoenixes. I loved Rise of the Phoenixes, the story-line is well written and all the characters did great, only disappointing part was the ending.

      I wish they could have explained some things on Eternal Love, like ascending or omens and trials, they just let it happen and you have to figure it all out for yourself. For someone just starting out on C-dramas it was slightly confusing.

      I'm about to start watching Ashes of Love, hope it's as good as the reviews.

      Watched 29 episodes of Lost in 1949, but episodes 30 to 46 do not have English subtitles. I was really enjoying the series and am disappointed that I can’t see the rest with subtitles!

      The Rise of Phoenixes is the excellent Chinese series that I have been waiting for a long time. All the actors are really good, especially the male lead. He can take your emotions with him through his ups and downs, happiness and distress. The backdrop, the setting, the furniture adds so much to the drama, not to mention the exquisite costumes. The dialogue are well written too. The first crown prince (Ning Chuan) probably spent a lot of effort to hone his body. Lovely.

      Eternal love and ashes of love is THE BEST. I have a major hangover over these two seriously. Let's not forget about princess agents. EPIC! Oh and Story of Yanxi Palace is amazing and binge worthy watching. I don't really like love 020 and princess weiyoung but it's fun to watch.

      Ashes of love ❤️

      I love it so much it is a long one but I can’t get enough I am really hoping for season 2. Hope it will be as amazing as season 1. Ashes of love is highly recommended. I have watched so many dramas kdrama Chinese drama so many of them in my life but I liked ashes of love the most. Cuz it describes all kinds of love( family love , friends love, most importantly the love of main characters) The way they love is so touching. I really like this way more than Eternal Love . Before I watched this i really like eternal love but after watching it eternal love become second one lol

      Love them all

      For me ETERNAL LOVE, ASHES OF LOVE are my favorites so far,I’ve seen several others that just lack the imagination. What I mean is the story, the adventure, the escape.

      Heaven-Mortals-Demons-Gods-Goddess-Fantasy and super natural.

      Unfortunately there are several that are really great but after 8-10 episodes the English sub titles disappear.

      Just enough to hook you on the story then the Big Disappointment.

      My favourites are Eternal Love, Nirvana in Fire and Story of Ming Lan. Ashes of Love was the first chinese drama I'd ever watched, but I didn't finish it (stopped at like ep 49). I'll go back to it at some point though.

      You should really consider updating your list

      How is Every Night Not in this ?

      Oh my General ?

      Untouchable Lovers

      These are only 3 that are far better than at least 5 (1/3 of your list).

      Please update your contents. The Brightest star in the night sky by Z.Tao deserves to be in this list! It's way better than Love 020 in my opinion.
