In comparison to other historical c-dramas, this one is invincible; therefore, I honor this show with the best Chinese TV series title.
#4. Love me if you dare
Praised for its unique storyline and character development throughout the series, Love me if you dare is a crime/suspense/romance Chinese TV series. All great genres combined in perfect harmony played out in this series. You would agree if you have watched it but If not please get going already.
This series is a modern-day criminal series where Simon (a criminal psychologist) and his assistant Jenny, together with solving violent and thought to provoke crimes. If you are the one looking for thriller crime and a little bit of romance, this one is the best pick for you, and I promise it will not disappoint at all. Strange enough the romance in this series beats most American shows of the kind. It could get a little dark, but everything is well executed in this series that I rank it as one of the best Chinese TV series ever made.
#5. Love O2O
Everything revolves around technology these days. If you are one of the techy gamers, then you can relate to this series the most on the list. Love o2o follows the story of a couple that fell in love from online gaming and faces several bumps in their journey of life together. Do Keep in mind it’s all fictional so highly unlikely you will find the same luck as them but then again, who am I to predict? You might make it, ya know? 😉
I must warn you this series is as romantic as it gets by that I mean its VERY ROMANTIC. You either obsess over this series or nothing.
It is one of the very cliché series but you can’t resist it cause sometimes the ordinary mainstream things feels good to devour in once a while.
That’s my take on Best Chinese TV series, it covers almost all genres and caters to all age groups. Now a few things before you begin searching all over google for these listed series. Most of them are uploaded on Viki; it’s a handy dandy app for k-drama, c-drama, and so on. Some series might require some work to be done to be found but nothing major alright. About the audio, now I prefer subtitles over dubbed version be it Mandarin or Korean, and I suggest you must too at least once give it a try as it’s a completely different experience as their culture seems to be more expressive through words. A huge deal of emotion can be felt by their spoken language when compared to normal spoken English. It’s just a personal preference but who knows maybe you will enjoy it better hence, I advise. Now, ENJOY!
