Recommendations for good Mainland Historical Dramas

Hi, given the craze of Bu Bu Jing Xin, I’m itching to watch another good Mainland Historical Drama. HAHA… I welcome all recommendations 🙂

I’ve heard of Palace (Gong) which uses the same setting as Bu Bu Jing Xin, but it’s different in story line. I’ve tried watching a few episodes of that, but I couldn’t go anything beyond it. Since BBJX has so much beautiful scenes and that each character is carefully created and played out, I couldn’t bear to watch the same characters being portrayed in a different way. (HAHA!)

I’ve watched quite a number of Historical Dramas myself over the years, but nothing good so far besides BBJX right now. I’ve heard of Schemes of a beauty as well as Princess Returning Pearl, but I’m not going to watch this.

These are some of the dramas I’ve watched, maybe you guys could give a recommendation of a drama similar to these:

Legend of the condor heroes 1 & 2, The handsome siblings, Little Fairy, Chinese Paladin, Strange Tales of Liao Zhai, Sword stained with Royal blood, The Yang Brothers…and etc… too many to list down. hehehe…

I’ve heard of ‘The Myth’ starring Hu Ge…is it any good? I’ve always been a fan of Hu Ge! How about ‘The Legend of Swordsman’ starring Nicholas Tse? I’m a big fan of him too!

I’m only going to watch it if I hear good reviews…if not, I’ll just wait for something good to come along.

  1. I recommend watching Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei, it’s by the same production company that did Bu Bu Jing Xin and there’s Liu Shi Shi in there as well. Storyline and editing is pretty well done.

    If you are looking for more time traveling dramas: Step into the Past is a really good HK drama.

    Qing Shi Huang Fei is a historical drama airing after BBJX. It’s the first production by Ruby Lin and she recruited some eye candied guys in the series. I heard the storyline is novel-based as well.

    1. Thanks 🙂
      I’ve watched the original korean version of Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei (Iljimae) so I’m not sure if i should watch the china version. HAHA.
      I thought Step into the past would be good too, but the videos aren’t clear enough.
      I’m sure to watch Qing Shi Huang Fei though, because cutie Wallace Huo is acting 🙂

      Thanks a lot for your opinions 🙂

  2. Try Lai Bu Ji Shuo Wo Ai Ni
    despite the time period and such its a beautiful drama, you’ll definitely melt under the male lead. i can say if you love bbjx this one would be better.

    1. It looks not bad 🙂 Maybe I’ll try watching it after I’m done with my load of korean dramas~~! Thanks 🙂
