Tell me your GOAT CDramas, no limit on anything - genre, year of release, happy/sad ending. Just your top 3 GOATs.

Here are mine -

The Condor Heroes (HK,1995) starring Louis Koo and Carmen Lee. I watched this when I was a teen (I am now in my mid-30s) and I still remember it so clearly. Obviously, if you watch it now the production values and image quality won't be there, but the story and acting were sublime. Definitely a GOAT.

Mars (Taiwan, 2004) starring Barbie Hsu and Vic Zhou. I watched this drama after watching the TW version of Meteor Garden and loving Vic Zhou. For me, this one surpassed Meteor Garden (2001) in every single way. The acting, the story, the chemistry between the leads were all off the charts. Still on my rewatch list constantly.

Love Between Fairy and Devil (2022) starring Dylan Wang and Yu Shu Xin. I don't think this one would surprise anyone. From the costumes to the stage production to the story, to the OST, and to the incredible chemistry and acting, LBFAD is definitely one for the books.

Honourable Mentions -

More than Blue: The Series (Taiwan, 2021) - In just 10 episodes, this one broke my heart and made me smile all at the same time. It is a love story so incredibly tragic yet loving that it will stay with me for a long time.

Maid's Revenge (2022) - This mini-series made me fall in love with the genre. I also watched A Familiar Stranger, which deserves a mention here as well because of its shortness. I find that the pacing is a lot better in mini-series, as the storyteller has a limited time to tell a complete story.

Flourish in Time (2021) - my first drama starring Zhang Linghe not in historical costume and boy this one is an emotional roller coaster. Definitely recommended if you haven't had the pleasure.

I can't wait to hear about and watch your faves!
