Long for you is basically Moonshine & Valentine 2.0

 No, this isn’t a The Wandering Earth poster.

With a similar plot (thousand-year-old male lead vs true love female lead) and even the exact same supporting female actress playing the also thousand-year-old unrequited third wheel,   Long for you 我与你的光年距离Ⅱ is basically an over-filtered version of Moonlight & Valentine.  The fantasy series is not related to the first one (which was very boring) and stars mostly up-and-coming new actors.   You can watch the whole series on Youtube here.
