It’s one of the best Chinese political drama to date!

Actually, it’s one of the best political drama I’ve ever watched by far! Most importantly, you must also watch the extra 12 episodes of the Royal Nirvana 2 (special) after 60 episodes of the Royal Nirvana 1 to get the answer of everything. Though it’s not entirely a happy ending love story (which is typical ending in most political drama anyway), but it’s the perfect ending. Thanks to great acting of Luo Jin and Li Yitong, both are naturally amazing and deserve award for best actor and actress for their performance here! All out, bloody fantastic! ? This may not be an easy drama to watch due to its complex plots and characters, but it’s worth every minute of it!

It’s beautifully made and performed drama with unpredictable plots and comedy twist. Exciting!

It’s refreshing, it’s different in a good way but yet an epic historical drama! Love it!

Court lady is a perfect combination of a classic historical drama with amazing and vivid details setting of inspired the Tang Dynasty; with a good balance of comedy vibe and impressive natural acting from the lead cast (Xu Kai and Li Yi Tong are adorable together!) as expected; and surprisingly the main supporting cast as well (e.g. Tan Jianci; and another adorably cute couple, Kris Fan and Wu Jiayi) which are the plus plus of this drama. They are a picture perfect of young people life with their love and life trials. The comedy is hilariously fun and the love is cleverly romantic but not cheesy and not over the top. So far, it makes me smile a lots and makes make happy watching it :-). However, I also was super excited to watch the built-up conflicts which I believe that would be happening sooner or later as the story progressing in historical drama to test the in depth acting of each of the characters. Oh well, Li Yi Tong and Xu Kai are the guarantee of great acting and never disappointment. Thus, I suspected that it’s going to be a fantastic journey to watch despite of whatever the ending would be. It’s historical drama, so of course there would always be painful scenes which I couldn't wait to watch. Then, my wishes came through. Since the ending theme was started to change from ep 28, the painful scenes have started pilling up. That’s actually got much more interesting to watch and I was hooked to the sweet ending.

My final verdict, Court Lady surely is one of the most interesting historical/political drama to date. The unpredictable story line with cleverly comedy twist and amazing cast and acting have made this drama refreshingly exciting, lighter but yet epic historical drama. Many complaining about the surprising plots and deaths. Well, how many good characters in a master piece tv drama like Game of Throne were killed unexpectedly?! Court lady is beautifully made and performed drama with brilliant story line and characters development. I just hope they make more than 55 eps to make the plots flowing in perfect pace (which I’ve heard it’s not possible now based on new rule in china, hence, it’s made shorter). But, the crew and cast has done amazing job already! So yes, Court Lady is definitely a must-watch one now! The production, story, cinematography, music, cast and acting are worth your time! It is one of the most exciting drama to watch by far; not as heavy as other historical dramas but it’s still epic. Highly recommended!

My heart is for Li Yi Tong and Wang Yan Lin in this!

To be honest, I’ve watched this show because of Li Yi Tong in it. And I was really glad that she was paired with Wang Yan Lin in which both actually are compliment to each other in a good way. Love watching them here!

I first watched Li Yi Tong’s 4 dramas in Amazon Prime Video UK (Royal Nirvana, Bloody Romance, Blossom in Heart or Begonia Rouge; and Just to See you or Fate). Since then, I have been following her works from England and trying to look for dramas starred by Li Yi Tong via any channels. No doubt, she is adorably beautiful and remarkably talented, especially when you see her shifting character from Huang Rong in Legend of the Condor Heroes, Appledog in Go Go Squid 2 and Hai Tang in Begonia Rouge to Wan Mei in Bloody Romance and all out acting as Lu Wenxi in Royal Nirvana. She’s just brilliant!

I never really understand how come many people in China have criticised Li Yi Tong look which may be forgettable on screen. But you can see here in this show that she is simply beautiful inside and outside, smart and naturally brilliant in acting for actress who never went to acting school. Her acting is definitely much better than many of Chinese actresses who are published to be more beautiful or popular than her. And plus, she has been the leading role in all her dramas and most of her dramas have steady good rating. You basically can throw any characters on her really and she would just execute them professionally beautiful. Her best qualities are indeed shown in “When We Write Love Story”. You would see how good she (partnered with Wang Yan Lin) actually was in doing impromptu acts and developing exciting real-life storyline about love (compared with the other actresses in the show).

This show truly highlights how lovely Li Yi Tong is as a person. She and Wang Yan Lin are definitely more fun to watch. They are adorable hilarious but sweet and cleverly romantic. Their love story here is more down to earth but yet make us laugh and cry with them. It’s a good balance of romance that was not cheesy and not over the top like the others. I do think more and more people outside the Chinese mainland including me have recognised Li Yi Tong as a great actress. It’s just ashamed that we sometimes find mixed-up profiles, photos and publications of her wherein often were mistakenly portrayed as complete different person which is Li Yi Tong, the ex singer of SNH48 who is apparently a mediocre actress. So, no wonder there has been biased recognition about her popularity. But so what popularity! It goes without saying that Li Yi Tong who is newly starred as the Fu Rou in Court Lady, is one of the best Chinese actress in China nowadays. Most of her dramas, movies and TV shows are worth to watch! So, must watch this one too :-)

This actually is really good and enjoyable drama to watch! It’s different in a good way.

This drama is actually really good with a highlight of the casts’ acting especially the leading couples. They both are brilliant in turning a simple story line to be really exciting things to watch. This did make me smile a lots :-). This mature love story drama is actually much better than many cheesy romantic Chinese dramas of inexperienced young good looking cast which perhaps are dominating the Chinese TV industry. Moreover, we should admit that Li Yi Tong is a great actress nowadays who is beautiful and sweet. Here, she even look more gorgeous :-). So, why people complaining about age difference issue, Li Yitong is very versatile actress who are good to pair with top male actors, even one with a great acting and vast experience like Chen Jianbin. They were wonderful together! Watch it, it’s fun!

It is just another ordinary historical C-drama. Nothing extraordinary!

After watching another Tang Dynasty inspired drama which has much stronger cast, beautifully made and brilliantly performed in the same time, the Long Ballad has become very ordinary and somewhat boring historical C-drama for me, especially when most interesting plots slowly declined after ep 28. As Wu Lei, the male lead acting was so stiff, I nearly dropped it but kept going to the end because of Zhao Lusi and Dilraba Dilmurat were in it only. Zhao Lusi character development are actually the one worth to watch here. I perhaps initially was drawn to watch this drama because it’s a well-known story and character and cast were predominantly good looking and the outdoor scenes did look amazing. However, some of them only good looking but not looking good in acting and their performance were somewhat annoying to watch. Furthermore, I’ve also felt that Dilraba Dilmurat could not really carry or portray Li Changge character in the book in a way I expected her to be. If she could be more expressive like Zhao Lusi, she could have been better! Unfortunately, the pairing with Wu Lei as lead couple couldn’t give much help. It’s a shamed that i couldn’t enjoy it as much as others since the public rating is so high. But i love the ending theme, it’s beautiful.

Amazing chemistry of the two best friend! Love them! So, watch it, ladies!

Great acting and amazing chemistry of Li Yitong (Lu Ke) and Gina Chen Jin (Shen Siyi). They have done best to bring up the storyline to a something much enjoyable to watch. The story may not be extraordinary but It is a mature real-life story for some and I love watching the love and hate friendship between Li Yitong and Gina Jin who are both beautiful and attractive in uniquely different way, despite of their complete opposite characters! So yes what can I say, I love this drama! Moreover, the music and soundtracks in this drama were fab too!! It’s just brighten my days :-)

Li Yitong & Hu Yitian are adorable!

Li Yitong and Hu Yitian are adorably cute together! Though many may put them behind Li Xian and Yang Zi, but to be honest, Yitong and Yitian are actually the power couple I prefer in different way. In my opinion, Li Yitong and Hu Yitian are more good looking than Yang Zi and Li Xian anyway. In GGS 2, They acted greatly in portraying a shy and reserved couple (unlike Li Xian and Yang Zi who had more playful characters) who were deeply in love. Together, they somehow could turn the coldness in nature into a warm, beautiful and sweet romance that makes me smile and happy. It’s a feel-good drama that is worth to watch as it’s a refreshing love story and moreover, both lead casts are naturally good in acting!

Li Yitong is the best Huang Rong to date!

To be honest, I watched this because Li Yitong was in it. As expected, she is indeed the picture perfect of Huang Rong! Cheeful, Smart and Fierce! She’s adorably cute!!! I enjoy watching this 2017 version of the Legend of the Condor Heroes. As it’s new, perhaps this is one of the best. Moreover, leading casts were both very good looking and cinematography were commendable. But why I sensed that this wasn't Li Yitong’s real voice? Anyway, whoever voice was it, she’s still beautifully cute :-) As always, her acting is great ?

As for me in England, I prefer GGS 2 than GGS 1!

As I have watched first the Go Go Squid 2 then the Go Go Squid 1 after, I would say that I like watching GGS 2 more than GGS 1. Both have different storyline we could enjoy. However, Li Yitong and Hu Yitian are more good looking couple and adorably cute together; plus they are naturally better in acting! Hence, I personally prefer the GGS 2 than GGS 1 (sorry...:-( )

GGS 2 makes me feel warm and smile but yet not to think of it as too childish like love portrayed in GGS 1. I am also rather puzzled to read comments mentioning that popularity and beauty of Yang Zi (once golden eagle goddess?) has surpassed many including Li Yitong.

I have watched some of Li Yitong and Yang Zi dramas before the GGS. In fact, both are equally great in acting, but I truly think that Yang Zi is not that beautiful as people say. Li Yitong are more sophisticatedly sweet and lovely than Yang Zi despite her less popularity. Li Yitong’s less popularity is not like because she is less talented actress, but it is simply because she is workaholic; and mainly keeps her self low profile keeping a good distance from the show-off bizz. But many of her works are remarkably good. So yes, not big fan of Yang Zi and Li Xiang for some reasons.
