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 game of fate, love, misunderstanding and tragedy takes three 'lifetimes' to resolve. Even if fantasy is not one's read more 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 lifetimes/arcs, creating a memorable journey of emotional highs and lows balanced with good action and drama.

Characters are fleshed out, and everyone has their own story. Alhough the focus is on the main couple, viewers can also enjoy other secondary characters and their relationships and how it all intertwines.

*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

*Rewatch (10/10):
Absolutely. 58 episodes did not feel long one bit. It slowed down a bit near the end, but I see it as necessary for the many characters and developments to come full circle.

*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

    Its a fantastic drama. iIn love with the characters. Its my first chinese historical drama that made me longing to it. ye hua acting mindblowing. There was not even a minute phase which made me bored. No ropes and pully required for the drama. From Beautiful costumes to the set every single thing is stunning, all different clans, their magic looks was jus fascinating. There are many things to pen down, but i would jus pefer you to give it a go and you will never be bored.Just made me engaged. I dont know when will i get out of the phase coz this drama jus captivated me. The intense feeling between the lead characters (woooo its hot). Was mesmerized by father and son relationship. I dont know when am gonna stop rewatching it. i would prefer to give 9.5/10 for this drama. its hghly recommend to watch it.

      I don't think movie version can replace drama version, I just can't image other guy as Ye Hau, other women as Bai Qian, no matter what how I like Yang Yang and Lui Yi Fei, it's just Mark Chao and Yang Mi did perfect job for this one :D

      I think you fell into the blackhole too. This drama has greatly impacted my entertainment experience and I just want to keep rewatching it to enjoy the story and fantastic romance. I love Yehua and Bai Qian so much.

    I am glad I didn't watch the trailer for this drama and watched it after I finished the drama. It's a major spoiler.

      Just like their beginning Song and end song, which I can understand their reason because they don't show previews. But nevertheless I still don't watch it.

      I think it's funny because it doesn't seem like the mainland Chinese population care if there are spoilers in the trailer hahahaha (I personally like spoilers) but I totally get what you mean!! at least this trailer was only 3 minutes long; some trailers are like 20 minutes long and literally give you the entire summary of the drama LOL

    I still can get into romance part and can't stand all female rival characters and their portrayal. Only Dong Hua keeps me considering to keep watch this, but even his story feels unmotivated and empty. What's so special about Feng Jiu anyway?

      Xuan Nu is a character that tries to be relevant but is really not that relevant, so I never even saw her as rival material.

    I finished this drama 3 days ago and I find myself keep on coming back to this page. A several times each day..*sigh* I don't know what I really expect to see on the page anyway..maybe I really wish that the rating would go up from 9.1 to 9.5 at most lol. Seriously, I miss all the good time I had while watching this show..T.T (ps: It was a very big mistake watching Go Princess Go after watching this show >.< This drama really ruined me )

      Li Jing does like her, and many feel that Mo Yuan does too. But there isn't like those dramatic annoying love triangle fights like in other dramas; everything's pretty controlled in my opinion :D

      It's hard to find amazing drama like this, after watched Eternal Love, I'm finding new drama every day but I found nothing interest. Ye Hau and Bai Qian took all my heart away.

    Surprisingly no tears, but whoever scripted the last few eps wove this drama beautifully, well the entire drama was written and directed very well. Honestly, go into this drama without having any expectations and be patient and you might like what you see.
