Top 8 Amazing Romantic Fantasy Chinese Dramas Begging To Be Watched

Best Romantic fantasy Chinese dramas to watch

Chinese dramas take the cake for being some of the most popular, most engaging, and most available Asian dramas to watch (so many OTT platforms). 

And top of the top are xianxia dramas which aren’t the focus of this post, but I’d like to draw a distinction. 

Xianxia is a very popular Chinese drama genre that leans into magical elements (powers and mythical beings) and it’s most often contrasted with wuxia dramas, which are the more grounded, Cdramas about martial arts. 

This is all well and good, but one other genre that sort of flies under the radar are fantasy dramas which are neither wuxia nor xianxia but still feature fantastical beings. 

It’s a little hard to describe the difference between the both to someone who isn’t aware, but check out these romantic fantasy Chinese dramas on this list and let me know what you think.
