C-Dramas Adapted from Novels [Part 1]

Hello folks, here’s a fun compilation series we are adding to the blog~

The surging of the dramas adapted from novels have pretty much been heavily populated in the Chinese entertainment industries with classic novels such as Journey to the West hitting both the small and big screens. In order to minimize the length of each part (hopefully this will be a series type of thing and we can write about older dramas later), we will pick more recent c-dramas adapted from novels to introduce/review for some of the viewers! As for folks that have seen any of these dramas so far, what’s your review for that drama(s)?

Note: I’ve put the links to eng subs of drama series (most of them have some sort of subtitles) along with the NovelUpdates link (which will provide links of any group translating the novel along with novel reviews).

Reviews from authors of this blog are highlighted in their own colors and are written after each drama.

[Feature] Huang Zitao

Many people know of Huang Zitao (Tao), but here is his moving life story that converted me from a neutral to a fan… I hope it will dispel some misconceptions and provide an overview of the person he is:

  • As the only child of a billionaire father (7th richest man in China), Tao was not interested in/did not excel in school. So, he left home at age 14 to make it on his own. He worked odd jobs to support himself, even donning costumes to hand out flyers on the street. When his father passed by him on the street, he would cry but did not force him to come home. By age 20, Tao bought houses for his parents. To this day, he has never taken any money from them
  • Even then, Tao saved up money to buy clothes for his grandma and lied about its price so his grandmother would not feel like he is spending too much money on her
