I made a vow to write a review immediately after the show ended and believe me when I say the emotions are still raw. Where do I even start? Eternal Love is such a compelling and beautiful piece I don't think I can find the exact words to describe it.

The story is brilliant in itself and I am honestly sure it did the book justice. I think if you're watching this read more without reading the book beforehand, you would love the show a lot more because you're watching without expectations plus either way, Eternal Love will blow you away (even if you're not a fantasy/xianxia/historical genre kind of person) Also, If you like The Journey of Flower, you will love this without a doubt.

Everything, every single thing is so stunning from the costumes, to the set and the cinematography. And the most beautiful part is, of course, their love story. The different clans coming together and all the magical elements and all are very interesting. I won't delve into the story too much because its pretty complicated but fear not, you will never be bored of it for a second.

The acting was spectacular. Yang Mi did a fantastic job as always. Although it was my first time watching Mark Chao, his character as either Mo Yuan or Ye Hua is so easily to fall in love with because he is that good at acting. Chemistry was flawless. A transparent love was beautifully portrayed; you could feel their love and pain and share their happiness. Kiss scenes are very good too. They're not exactly rough but tender and deep? I honestly did not expect so many kiss scenes because I was quite disappointed with the lack of intimacy in The Journey of Flower but you're blessed here :')

Every other character was very likeable having their own unique personalities. The other side characters and love stories are also super sweet especially Dong Hua's and Feng Jui's.

It seems like everything about the drama is perfect even its music is so apt. The entire OST is so enchanting played at right timings. The duet is so haunting which really gives Bai Qian & Ye Hua moments that goosebumps. So, so good.

The only problem I have (not with the drama) is that I hate misunderstandings that cause conflicts in a relationship which my heart cannot handle. Ye Hua and Bai Qian's relationship has many 'tragedies' that can really break your heart because they've been through so many tribulations caused by some side bitches but in the end, everything for this drama is worth it.

Rewatch it? Definitely. No qualms about it.

This is truly a masterpiece and I can safely say Eternal Love is my favourite C-Drama.

Probably the first time a drama of this length has me thoroughly enthusiastic from beginning to end. More rare is the case of a drama adaptation not only breathing life to its book, but surpasses the original work in every aspect. The challenge is to stop oneself from the binge to see how this karmic game of fate, love, misunderstanding and tragedy takes three 'lifetimes' to resolve. Even if fantasy is not read more one's cup of tea, the love/romance here is one everyone can enjoy

*Story (10/10)
This drama has done a wondrous job keeping faithful to the original story while incorporating parts of its spinoff "The Pillow Book" about the secondary lead pairing.The Chinese title of this drama is "Three Lives Three Worlds: Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms" and like its name suggests, tells the story of Ye Hua and Bai Qian - gods who are separated yet bounded by fate to find each other in their lives again throughout the course of three arcs, for a memorable journey of emotional highs and lows balanced with good action and drama. Though there are 58 episodes, it is filled with plots to leave one consistently guessing what the next development is from beginning to end.
Just as one score settles, another rises.

Characters are fleshed out and although the main couple gets the bulk of the focus, secondary characters and their relationships are not cheated out of a good storyline either.

*Acting/Cast: (9/10)
Yang Mi's Bai Qian may be the protagonist, but Mark Chao is the highlight. To express so much with so little is what Mark does wonderfully, and his ability to portray two similar characters (Ye Hua & Mo Yuan) so differently with their set of own characteristics, mannerisms and reactions is impressive. As for Yang Mi overall she did well portraying the different personalities of her characters - from playful,mischievous Si Yin to naive and innocent Su Su and finally the aloof with an attitude Bai Qian - by far her best performance. Together these two produce the chemistry to keep audiences thrilled and satisfied. Overall the cast is well put together with several other memorable faces (Zhang Bin Bin, Dilraba etc) making the drama that much more enjoyable


*Last thoughts?
- All the sets, props, scenery and people are simply eye-catching, which keeps one visually interested all the way through.
- Aside from the visual fest and story, Mark Chao is another reason to rewatch


It's been a while since I enjoyed a romance-fantasy genre this much, this will be going straight into my archive of favorites. No doubt one of the best Chinese dramas have to offer

      I wasn't sure about this drama at first, but after episode 10 (for some people episode 16) it get really better. I don't know how many episode you watched till now, but I think you should continue it, it's really good.

    the fact that it's still under featured trailers just proves that NOBODY is getting over this drama. It been half a year and I am still trying to fill in the void it left.

      Well it was the princess who asked for it. Maybe if it was Xuan Nu who asked, Ye Hua wouldn't give it.

    Watched and rewatched over 4 times already and read english translated novel twice. The addiction is real. I would probably lose my mind if they made a spin off for Mo Yuan. He needs his own story.

      do you have a PDF copy of the noval?

      roake 11 days ago

      The translators I know of have removed the translations because they agreed it was plagiarized and is not deserving of recognition. The copy I have is from kindle. You should be able to read it for free if you have amazon prime "To the sky kingdom" by Tang Qi. This novel did retain a little of the boy love of the original pirated work not seen in the drama.

    This is just a drama that makes you know in order to have a happy ending you have to go through all kind of suffering and sacrifice. No matter how high you are everyone has a weakness.

      Yes, but Mark played him so well it feels like Mo Yuan is a different person. I am glad they didn't make it a typical antsy triangle, but I can feel Mo Yuan's pain. *sign*

      You are so right. It is sad, but fortunate at the same time.

    I feel that the ending is a bit incomplete. It was a happy ending, sure, but the drama ends right after Ye Hua and Bai Qian reunited. We didn't see them ascend to Heavenly Lord & Empress. Not sure if they were even officially married.

    For that reason, I'm praying there'll be a season 2. I need to see more of Ye Hua & Bai Qian!

      This was how the novel ended. Their wedding appears at the beginning of Pillow, but that novel is about her niece's story.

    I wished there was more screen time for Ye Hua & Bai Qian and less for some of the other pairings (especially considering the outcomes of their love)

    But other then that, the drama's perfect. Everything from the acting & cast to the music is very well done.

    Really wished there was a season 2 or something. I think I'm going to rewatch because I can't let go of the drama after watching the ending.
