Yang Mi + Zhang Bin Bin!!!!!
Chinese fantasy films and dramas are just their own thing. You just cant compare them to anything else.
Ashes of Love (Chinese: 香蜜沉沉烬如霜) is a 2018 Chinese television series based on the novel Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost by Dian Xian. It stars Yang Zi and Deng Lun in the lead roles. The series premiered on Jiangsu TV starting August 2, 2018. As of January 2019, the series has reached 15 billion views.
Most of the time we focus so much on the female lead, her character growth throughout the series, and her romance with the male lead, that we often forget that there are also supporting female leads that deserve some attention as well. Whether she’s the one who is fighting with the FL for the ML, having an unrequited love towards ML or someone else, or has her own agenda in the drama, you can’t deny that sometimes she just outshines the FL in one way or another. Personally, there have been many times where I truly rooted for the second female lead more than the FL because I saw more potential from her and I liked her character more. Unfortunately, not all supporting female leads get their deserved happy ending. But, regardless, here’s a list of supporting female leads that I personally rooted for and really liked because of their badass attitude, selfless love, and unwavering convictions.

Finally finished this drama!! Since the sub is super slow for this drama, I’m gonna do a quick summary recap for the last 4 episodes. Refer to the discussions for the previous episodes.
Yang Zi, also known as Andy Yang, is born on November 6, 1992. She is considered as one of the “Four Dan actresses” of the post-90s generation, a term given to potential actresses of their time.
I can’t do recaps or summaries but we can discuss the drama as episodes come out. Be warned spoilers ahead.
