New Chinese Dramas on Amazon Prime Video: November 2019

Since I lasted posted about Chinese dramas on Prime Video in September, I’ve noticed some new additions!

Blossom in Heart (2019)

Deng Lun & Li Yi Tong’s new drama, also known as Begonia Rouge, is already on Prime Video! This Republican era drama is currently airing & concludes in December.

Legend of Yun Xi (2018)

This historical drama was one of my favorites last year, with one of my favorite heroines ever. Yun Xi (played by Ju Jing Yi) is smart, generous, and skilled with treating poisons. Her arranged marriage with Zhang Zhe Han’s character blossoms into true love.

The Disguiser (2015)

I don’t watch these Republican era spy dramas but if I did, I’d pick this one starring Hu Ge, Wang Kai, and several other familiar faces from Nirvana in Fire (my favorite drama of all time).

Love Better Than Immortality (2019)

Here’s a recent historical fantasy drama starring Zhao Lu Si from I Hear You and Oh! My Emperor and Li Hong Yi from Master Devil Do Not Kiss Me. (They also starred together in another drama this year called Prodigy Healer.) There’s a time travel aspect to the plot, as well as a love triangle.

Love Under The Moon (2019)

This 48-episode modern drama starring Victoria Song and Ou Hao seems slow, angsty, and sad…

Our Glamorous Time (2018)

I don’t actually recommend this one and dropped it at episode 25. It also seems that Amazon is missing the last 10 episodes (for a total of 50). This drama about the business partnership and romance between a sharp soldier and a talented fashion designer seemed promising initially but became nonsensical and convoluted.

Chinese Dramas on Amazon Prime Video: September 2019

Chinese Dramas on Amazon Prime Video

I’ve seen a lot of Chinese dramas added to Amazon Prime Video this year, but it seems difficult to actually find them so I’ve put together this list of some notable dramas I’ve stumbled across on the site. There are a good number of dramas from this year & the past three years! (Please note: all Amazon links in this post are my affiliate links.)

Heavy Sweetness (2018)

More commonly known as Ashes of Love or Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost, this very pastel-heavy & hugely popular fantasy romance drama stars Yang Zi, Deng Lun, and Luo Yunxi.

Princess in the East Palace (2019)

This popular historical drama from earlier this year is more commonly known as Goodbye, My Princess. If you’re looking for a tearjerker, you’re in luck.

Legend of Fuyao (2018)

This fantasy adventure drama spans multiple kingdoms & a very large cast of characters. Yang Mi was great as usual, but I found Ethan Juan a real scene-stealer with his cunning & charm.

Love Me, If You Dare (2015)

Wallace Huo plays a criminal psychologist with a very high IQ but low EQ, who falls in love with his assistant, played by Sandra Ma, while solving some very violent cases. A must-watch for fans of crime thrillers!
» Watch on Amazon Prime Video

Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace (2018)

Another Wallace Huo drama! I actually haven’t watched this, because it came out around the same time as The Story of Yanxi Palace, which kind of tells the same story but from a different perspective. I loved Yanxi Palace SO much that I just can’t root for Ruyi.

In Youth (2019)

Here’s a 2019 modern drama for you, about a group of young adults pursuing careers and love. The two leads, played by Zhang Yun Long and Qiao Xin, work at a PR firm. I loved the male lead’s tight-knit group of friends but I did skim through the middle portion of this drama. (Aside from Qiao Xin, the main cast are all rising stars in Yang Mi’s entertainment company, Jaywalk Studio.)

The Legend of Haolan (2019)

If you fell in love with Wu Jinyan after The Story of Yanxi Palace, this is her follow-up historical drama which I have heard great things about! I haven’t watched it yet because when it came out, I was still recovering from Yanxi Palace.
» Watch on Amazon Prime Video

Legend of Dragon Pearl (2017)

I confess that I’m not a huge Yang Zi fan but I actually liked her in this drama! Qin Jun Jie stars as the male lead and I thought they had great chemistry (also, they dated in real life).
» Watch on Amazon Prime Video

The Flame’s Daughter (2018)

I didn’t finish watching this drama and I can’t remember why, but I was very intrigued by the pairing of Dilraba Dilmurat and Vic Chou (who I will always think of as Hua Ze Lei from Meteor Garden). The supporting cast is great and includes Vin Zhang and Liu Rui Lin (a lot of Jaywalk Studio faces here).
