  1. Love than Anything Movie is the best that I have ever seen. Please bring Mu and Fang back for a season 3.

  2. For me so far the best C-Drama for 2023 was Back from the brink and the second was The Ingenious One, I’ am expecting surely My Journey to You and Snow Eagle Lord

  3. I’ve been waiting for the airing of Xu Kai’s Snow Eagle Lord. Hoping they will show it already and asap.

  4. I am looking forward to South Wind Knows My Mood but so far no news on airing date. Urghhhh!

  5. Snow Eagle Lord yay! Hope it lives up to the hype. I’m more into Period than Modern C dramas. Modern C dramas have a tendency of being unnecessarily long winding I end up skipping through a few episodes. I am looking forward to South Wind Knows My Mood but so far no news on airing date. Urghhhh!

  6. I honestly can’t wait for the Love You Self-Evident and Snow Eagle Lord, I really love evil step mother/sister drama, can you recommend more like Love you self-evident.
    Thank you for the update.
    Love you

  7. Hey, Thanks for the comment. I did look it up and it looks like Legend of Anle will be dropping in July this year. I will be on the lookout though and update the article when more info is out.

  8. We need more Chinese drama staring both Sean Xiao and Wang Yibo, please they should paired both of them for Chinese drama
