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.

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!

    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?

      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.

    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?

    Fantasy dramas are not my cup of tea, but my BF wanted to watch this drama together. I am glad I did watch this because I really enjoyed it. The OST was amazing!

    as I said in my review, this is a drama for children or early teens! If you're a fantasy fan or older than that this won't be as good for you D:

      then I must be a childish 50 year old. ha ha ha! maybe the drama is just different from the usual Chinese drama, maybe because I am Ma Tian Yu's fan.

      She is 陈欣予 Chen Xin Yu

      The characters of Ka Suo and Shi are largely based on the story book. Just that the script writer added more storyline to it as the book did not have much details. The book is about the brother-ship between the two brothers and how Shi do anything just to give Ka Suo the freedom he wanted including giving up his own life. In the book, being the prince who will be take over the throne, Li Luo is supposed to protect him, thus it looks as though Ka Suo is weak but actually he is also powerful but as the book goes, Shi is more powerful than Ka Suo.

    Reading the comments here is really an enjoyment. The comments really focus on the drama and is unbiased, just voicing each and own opinions. So great. No news about the mortal world yet but I guess will be soon else the fever would have died. Somehow I think you all like Ice Fantasy more than most of the China netizens.

      I was wondering if I should or shouldn't invest my time in 62 episodes of 45min; and 2 of the 3 reviews posted are from people that didn’t finish the drama before reviewing :/
      So, thanks for this! (and all the comments that say that it’s too long with too many flashbacks, the fact that it’s dubbed, etc…) Now I know I won’t =P

      Skip this drama. A whole lot of nothing happens in the middle of this drama. Watching paint dry is more entertaining.

      There isn't a season 2 but the sequel is a modern day version that better explains what happened before Ka Suo awakens. Drama posters are out but no air date. I hope it isn't as bad as Scarlet Heart 2.
