I absolutely loved it!! This series is so artistic and captivating.
It has beautiful scenery, costumes and mis-en-scene. It was so colourful and pretty to watch!
It was also entertaining to see the different tribes (where the lived and what they wore). The sets were fantastic, I loved all of the clans palaces (so well thought-out and designed).
The characters were so loveable! I just wanted them to all be happy ugh. read more Their entwining story lines were fantastic and sometimes heart breaking. The scores throughout the show were very well written. I personally like Ka Suo and Li Luo's theme.
This show doesn't follow the expectations of the audience and is often quite unpredictable. This is a great quality because after each episode your always left wanting to know what happens next.

I couldn't praise this show enough. It had me hooked from the first episode, and by the last I was wanting more.

I recommend watching this series with an open mind, it can have "tacky" or "cheesy" moments, but if you look past that you'll find a great show with an awesome story.

I cannot wait until season 2!

Magical. Beautiful. Really enjoyed it. I didn't fast forward at any time, never skipped any part.
Remember it is fantasy when you watch it, and enjoy!
Also, only annoying character, the mermaid princess. But over time you'll understand.

    Based from the reviews, it's really good..but is it really??
    I've read from a lot of blogs that it's just visually appealing and rest, just crap.
    Anyone, is it worth watching? I really love watching this kind of fantasy drama..really contemplating on this one.

    I don't know why everyone is hating on Lan Shang. I mean, I'm only on episode 17, so I don't know if this will change, but I feel bad for her. Sure she has that bubbly and annoying kind of personality, but it really isn't to the point where I get sick of her. She's just one of those girls that wants to marry a guy she likes, and honestly what is wrong with that? Considering what she's doing right now to try to save Kan Suo, should give you more of a reason to not hate her.

    Guys, anyone know if they plan to give us a special episode / third season / movie? I still feel that the story is not over yet, not until Shi and YanDa will get their happy ending togheter. It seems unfinished to me and heck I'm the type of person who loves sad endings in a masochistic way.

    I'm on episode 14 and I just can't stand that mermaid, Lang Shag. I've never seen such an annoying character! She's spoiled, helpless, whiny, superficial, boring, and stupid.GAH!

      I've never liked her much either, good thing she was only a supporting character and not a main.

      Yes! Luckily, I can just skip her scenes and continue watching without any problems. It's not like her scenes are important to the plot.

    alina_zhang_meng said on instangram: Don`t be sad because of the ending of yan da and yong kong shi. We have a surprise "

    Anyone know what she's talking about?

      nothing between her and Shi. Probably about Shi meeting his previous life, Snow Bird, at the ending. That is quite a surprise, actually.

      Giving that there's still no english subtitle available yet, I haven't watched destiny, but I did find out the ending... Still, Alina Zhang posted this on her instagram yesterday, so perhaps they will give us a special episode or something...

    This was the most interesting show ever ... I was confused with too many characters at one point but still it was quite interesting and cant wait for the Sequel i assume its related to what the granny said in the ending but damn i loved Zhang Alina and her cute acting

    I'm deciding whether i should watch Eternal love first or ice Fantasy first.
    What do you guys think? Eternal Love OR Ice Fantasy

      Honestly, skip this drama. It's not good IMO. The cinematography and costumes are pleasing to look at. However, the drama drags a lot in the middle and the leads don't have chemistry. Watch Eternal Love.

      Eternal love.

      They could watch the whole drama at one go? wow lucky them. I dunno how much tencent vip cost, but I'd gladly pay a few $ just to see IFD at once, sadly I checked their site and they don't have an english version of it. I'm so anxious to see what happens between YanShi, I just couldn't move on from this couple. Hopefully I'll finally get some closure, altough I try not to keep my hopes too high.

      I don't want to spoil the show but though there is closure, it is not what you all will like. I love YanShi too. And yes, the VIP could watch at one go. Anyway, there are download in Chinese but not English sub.

      If you know something about YanShi's ending, please spoil it to me. I dunno when I'll be able to watch it with english subtitle and I'm dying to know how will their story end.

      I don't really mind if YanShi won't end up togheter, but I really want to know if he loves her / if he tells her that he loves her.

    The posters for Ice Fantasy Destiny are out. Victoria is not acting. A movie actress is. But date of showing not known yet, but should be soon.

    I've added this to my Plan-to-Watch list but I wanna know if it is actually a really good C-drama? Is it somehow similar to Goblin or something?

      mindmuse Feb 3, 2017

      I just finished it and I recommend giving it a shot. This was actually my first C-drama ever but it was well done and I thoroughly enjoyed it. But fair warning-- some of it (special effects, lines etc) will be pretty cringey.
      In terms of similarity to Goblin, I haven't finished Goblin yet but while both shows have a fantasy element the feel of the dramas is completely different.

      No similarity by story only one thing similar is immortality.

    It's hard to focus on this drama when Victoria Song is on the screen, she's so gorgeous it's distracting

    Ying Kong Shi and Yan Da were the only good thing about this drama tbh. Can we get a spin-off with just them?
