I love Chinese historical novels. I've red a few gems with unconventional female characters. A faithful portrayal in a good drama adaptation cannot fail, usually big hits are adaptations from novels (Return of the Condor Heroes, Nirvana in fire, Ten Miles of Peach Blossom, Come eat Shan Shan, Silent Separation, Love me if you dare, etc.). I would love to see an adaptation of : The rebirth of the malicious empress of military lineage for Shen Miao DA BOSS Eight treasures trousseau for Hua Xi Wan ...she gives a whole new flavour to laziness lol To be a virtuous wife for Qu Qing Ju OMG SHE'S THE BEST!!!!! The rebirth of an ill-fated consort for Jiang Ruan but maybe this one a little diluted because it's so bloody.
What about you? What novel would you love to see turned into a drama?
