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.

this drama is not like traditional chinese dramas, all the extra bling was just weird plus the plot was just to complicated. it was DNF but i did like the cast and acting was wonderful, hated the costumes, the story was just stupid like it came out a childrens story book :( novoland was another similar chinese drama aired in 2016 but that one was slightly better, all these fantasy ones are read more just plain weird tho. i like the traditional chinese ghost and fairy/fox demon stories much more or historical ones:) also legend of the white snake is amazing and demon girl

anyway just dont understand why this one was so popular, it was just an ok drama

The feeling of these two are kinda similar. The protagonists have Ice Magic and are drown to a war that they dont want to fight. Some aspects of the two main male leads are similar, with one who grows over time in contrast with the one who are powerful since the beginning.

Even the female leads are kinda similar.

both have handsome male leads that are princes.
the second male lead is also handsome.
both have similar story story lines in ice lands and ice fantasy has many interesting side stories

    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!

    This was the second Fantasy drama that I've watched and it was amazing. I got usted to the style fast. This is a beautiful story and costumes and setting! My favorite character was Ying Kong Shi!

    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.

    Any news about an airing date for the second season?

      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.

      Oh I see, thanks for the reply. Someone on facebook posted a picture with the airing date being 24 december, so I was curious if that's true, but I doubt it :D Any idea about how many episodes will it have?

    It has a good story line, but I wish that they didn't try to make the drama so long.
    It felt slow and draggy at times, so it probably could have been fit into a smaller number of episodes.

      They should cut out the repetitive flashbacks and the dramatic dance scenes the characters had before they died. 50 episodes would have been fine for me.

      Yes, it's too bad that a lot of the times C-dramas try to drag out a series...

      I feel that many K-dramas nowadays do the same

    The only thing that kept me going was Ma Tian Yu. They could've fit this into 40 eps if they cut out the billion of repeated flash backs. The dialogue is aids, the characters are aids and the plot is pretty much aids too (yeah i'm so descriptive). If you're up for some cringey drama that keeps playing the bromance card then this is it. Or if you're like me and appreciate aesthetic settings and Ma Tian Yu c::::::

      The drama added a lot of characters and stories that originally weren't in the book. It pretty much diverged when the screenwriter changed Yingkongshi's biological father. I guess that just makes the storyline richer?

    The modern version poster is out. Handsome Shi.

    Yan Da's theme MV, all about her and Shi, if you all have not enough of them.

      It's not aired yet and you won't find anything unless you copy and paste its chinese name: 幻城凡世, which translates to City of Fantasy in the Mortal World.
