XDRAMAsX’s 2016 Drama Review

Personally I feel 2016 has been a rather lackluster year for dramas, and there wasn’t a single show that had me completely invested. My standards have risen exponentially after a slew of good dramas in late 2015, and I’m hoping some of the shows from the 2017 lineup will make up for the disappointment this year. That being said, I probably have missed out on a couple of gems this year, so feel free to suggest your favourites below.

This is my first time reviewing anything, so do bear with my ramblings as I try and figure everything out. I also owe a huge thanks to the team at CFensi, especially 0kuo0 and idarklight, for patiently answering all my questions and making sure I settled in with minimal hiccups. All productions are listed in the order they aired, and I’ve also included some short commentary on dramas I dropped

Stills and anticipation for TLTWTMPB

I know… I know… some of these stills are kinda old but no use holding onto them when the good stuff might come out soon… and here’s a production video as compensation.

Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms has been releasing so much that it has me really hoping this January release projection holds through.  Starring Yang Mi, Mark Zhao, Yu Menglong, Ken Chang, Dilraba, Zhang Binbin, and Gao Weiguang, everybody keep their fingers crossed.

Song of Phoenix strikes again

For fans with more of a period taste to wallpaper their rooms with…

Song of Phoenix 思美人 has done it again.  Starring Ma Ke, Zhang Xinyu, Qiao Zhenyu, Yiyang Qianxi, Du Chun, Liu Yun, Lan Xi, Lee Hyunjae, Yin Zhusheng, Fu Yiwei, and Wang Yuelun, this time the images are in Chinese scroll form so I guess it’s forgiveable.

Legend of the Dragon Pearl: The Indistinguishable Road releases more

Qing dynasty dramas seem to have fallen a bit out of fashion lately… either that or nobody wants to compete with Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace.

Legend of the Dragon Pearl: The Indistinguishable Road 龙珠传奇之无间道 has released more stills.  Starring Yang ZiQin JunjieMao ZijunShu ChangHe Zhonghua, and Zhang Na, those who have been wanting to stare at Qing dynasty costuming can get a look through these stills.

More stills below the cut.
