Both dramas:
- are set in the realm of deities;
- have an unforgettable love;
- have an heart-wrenching love story;
- secondary characters that made the main leads have misunderstandings;
- heavy fantasy with many creatures from Chinese mythology;
- beautiful scenaries;
- good CGI (Heavy Sweetness, Ask-like Frost one seems better).

Both dramas follow the main couples love through many lives.
The male lead in both shows are in a position where they hold a lot of mystical power, and the female in the current lifetime the TV show is set in doesn't remember her past with the male lead.
All in all both dramas are very similar.

All in all both dramas are similar in a way, but i wouldn't say they have a similar story line. it's definitely different.

Same story from same novel. One is a 58 episodes drama and one is a movie. Both drama and movie have amazing cast
Recommended by Melisa
They both include supernatural beings and trials they must go through. Also includes romance. The difference is that Eternal Love is historical while A Korean Odyssey is modern day.

Both star Yang Mi as the lead female and she is as good as expected.

Both have enduring love as a main theme. There's even a separation of our OTPs with both EL and YAMS. Also a forced/contrived cohabitation after finding each other again.

In both you can feel our OTPs almost unbearable pull towards each other. Male leads in both have amazing chemistry with Yang Mi's characters and both can be forceful and imposing(kissing scenes in both the drama and the movie was scorching) but show their gentle sides too. Huang Xiaoming and Mark Chao both have the most amazing jawlines though Mark is undoubtedly the better actor.

EL had the best soundtrack I've heard in a while but there is also YAMS' OST: Silent by Na Ying that stood out. If you're still hung up over EL give YAMS a try if you have 2 hours to spare.

In both dramas

- Fated lovers meet in many lifetimes.
- Great costuming
- strong love story
- Beautiful main leads
- stunning blue eyes on a pretty face in Novoland.
- In Novoland - Emperor of a kingdom of power falls in love with a girl from the enemy kingdom but doesn't care cause he's so in love. He defies everything to spend some time with her.
- In Eternal Love - Crown Prince of Gods falls for what his people consider an inferior enemy. He doesn't defy everything, and he makes stupid mistakes, but he learns the error of his ways.
- Female lead initially loves another but her true love is the male lead.
- Male lead totally and devastatingly in love with female lead.
- Male lead never ever deviates on his love for her, or cheats. He's a one woman man.

Same actress, great fight scenes. Male lead is dominant and is always there to rescue the female lead. Both has the female leads with prior relationships that gone wrong before finally getting with the male lead.

Sound of the Desert is similar to Eternal Love in that:

-Female lead is in love with someone else first.
-Male Lead is completely in love with her and is super open about it. Affectionate, wicked, naughty.
-Second female lead is super hateful, although in SotD the second female is not in love with the male lead.
-Passionate kisses, although in both the romance takes a while to start.
-There's no magic or fantasy in SotD
-The male leads always wear black.
-Overall the romance gives the same vibe.
-There are a few more similarities but I feel they would be spoilers.

Boss & Me got me started on my love for Mainland dramas which lead to finding Xianxa through Zao Zanilia's Journey of Flower through to Eternal Love.

Both dramas feature male leads who are powerful and cold to start of with but when they fell for the female lead they never deviated. Ye Hua and Feng Teng were the definition of 'Laser-focused'... there wasn't even a hint of a chance for the female love rivals (not that I felt at all sorry for either)

They both acknowledge the romance and couple up very early on, none of this dragging out will they-won't-they business and work through their problems with varying degrees of maturity and success. Both happy endings too. You will fall for both dramas OTPs like a ten-ton brick.

Fabulous chemistry and solid acting. Yang Mi and Zhao Zanilia are both adorable and beautiful and most importantly THEY CAN ACT. Mark Chao is also specially amazing.

Those put off by CGI don't be, its inconsequential and the plot and characters will be what you care about. I've got to say though EL had better cast of characters (It seems like there are hundreds but I loved all of them) than Boss & Me. I watched both dramas twice each now and will probably watch EL again in the near future.

The Flame's Daughter and Eternal Love (TMOPB) give off the same vibes. Both are fantasy dramas with elements of romance. In TMOPB almost all cast are immortals and in Flame's Daughter, Yin Xue is Immortal. They both have evil tribes fighting for power. All the supporting cast of TMOPB are there in Flame's Daughter. So, feeling a bit nostalgic? Go ahead and watch this new series.
