C-Dramas Adapted from Novels (2017 edition) [Part 2]

Hello, we’re back with another post of c-dramas based on novel adaptions. There are quite a lot of them over the course of c-entertainment and unfortunately, we can’t cover all of them.

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.
