双世宠妃 The Eternal Love – 2017 CDrama

Xiao Zhang Lin from “I Cannot Hug You” brought me here as I was curious to know more about his other dramas. I was surprised to see that he was in this one because I thought that this drama would have been a flopped when it came out. How wrong was I?! I am in love with this show and I have to say, this is probably one of my top 5 dramas of all time!

L-R: Qu Tan’er/Xiao Tan (Liang Jie) and Mo Liang Chen (Xing Zhao Lin)

双世宠妃/The Eternal Love might not be an expensive production when compared to other dramas such as “The Empress of China”, “Hua Qian Gu”, etc., but the plot, passionate acting and chemistry between the actors and actresses just grab your heartstrings.

Related imagePlot Summary:
The Eternal Love is set in the fictional Dongyue country where the princes fight for the throne. Due to some mystical force, Qu Tan Er (Liang Jie) develops two different personalities: she occasionally switches from gentle and reserved to uncivilized and bold. She is being offered to the eight prince Mo Lian Cheng (Xing Zhao Lin) for marriage, but Lian Cheng is suspicious of Tan Er’s relationship with the crown prince for whom she once tried to commit suicide. Nonetheless, Tan Er slowly manages to gain his trust with her bold and bubbly personality and the two end up falling deeply in love. However, her other gentle personality is still yearning for the crown prince and wishes to help him become king…

There are 24 episodes in total and each episodes are around 30mins in length – not too long and perfect to watch everything in a few days!

The two main reasons why I think this is one of the best:

  • Chemistry between the main characters: Mo Lian Cheng with Xiao Tan – they tug my heart strings so badly and when they do, you know you have a winner! I love their humorous banter, their love and bravery! I wonder if they’re dating in real life?
  • OSTs – the soundtrack for this drama is a godsend! I’ve linked my favourite song from this drama below!

However, some things this drama could work on are:

  • Plot – episode 1 was confusing as they began immediately with the modern Xiao Tan in Qu Tan’er’s body. I did not like how they suddenly went to the spirit world in the last 4 eps (I found it stupid but I got to see our favourite couple so I forgave the director)
  • It’s unfinished. When will they tell us about season 2? I think there should be one because of the ending when they reunite in modern society! I want more!!!!

Btw, even though I’ve finished this drama just last week, I’m rewatching it again today as I’m typing this. It has been in my head the whole day (I think its because I’ve been playing the OST on repeat) and now I’m laughing, crying and falling in love again!

  1. I can’t wait for Season 2 too. But, I wasn’t confused with the first episode, or the last few episodes. As soon as the two soul hunters showed up, I knew Dongyue wasn’t just set in historical times, but in a different world.

    Have you seen Love O2O (with Yang Yang as “Xiao Nai,” and Zheng Zhuang as “Bei Wei Wei,” in the lead roles)? You will love it, it will also grab your heartstrings. I think it’ll make it into your top 10 favorite Chinese dramas, if not 5.

    SYNOPSIS:
    ||| Bei Weiwei (actress Zheng Shuang) is a Computer Science major at Qing University, the department beauty who excels in her studies. She aspires to be an online game designer/engineer, and goes by the alias of Luwei Weiwei in the online role-playing game “A Chinese Ghost Story.”

    Since Wei Wei won’t show what she looks like to her virtual in-game husband [his username is Zhenshui Wuxiang], Wei Wei gets dumped. (Note: There are couple-only quests in the game.)

    Wei Wei gets approached by the number one player [his username is Yixiao Naihe], and he suggests they couple up. (It is Xiao Nai, who already knows her identity because he saw her earlier at an Internet cafe, and he noticed her skills. It’s not her beauty that he notices first.)

    The newly formed couple instantly hit it off, and undergo many adventures together in the game. However, Wei Wei never expected the real identity of her virtual husband to be her college senior, Xiao Nai, who is described as the cream of the crop in both sports and academics.

    When Wei Wei discovers his true identity (in Episode 10, when he suggests they meet), she has already fallen in love with him. Together, they overcome numerous misunderstandings and obstacles standing in their way of their budding relationship. |||
