The beginning of the play is very majestic, the director had the universe in her heart, the fairytale fantasy setting is heavily emphasised. The scene looked beautiful in their ancient charm, poetic and picturesque. The whole drama is full of fairylike energy! [+2551]

The drama is funny after, after watching the first few episodes. This is the first xianxia show I watched this year. I hope [this standard] can be maintained. Sister Zhou Dong Yu looks good. Zhou Shen’s singing and the plotline is also very good. It’s rare that Zhou Shen is singing while “giving out treats” [+2279]

The special effects are good, and the acting skills are not unnatural. Although I have only watched the first episode, I really want to catch up with the rest. As for the looks [of the cast], to each their own. Anyway, I am the kind who cares more about the storyline rather than the face [of the cast]. I’m getting onto the bench to continue watching the follow-up episodes of the show. [+1925]

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. When I saw the trailer I was so amazed, I really like the pairing of Shang Gu Bai Jue. Never knew that Zhou Dongyu and Xu Kai’s pairing would be not bad to watch. This may be due to a good role filtering.  Also, I pay compliments to the special effects of this show, it is so amazing, every frame is amazing. It seemed that the show had spent a lot of money on it. I fully support Ancient Love Poetry! [+1919]

Actually the plot is okay, but the heroine is really ugly, it burns my eyes. I really can’t accept seeing her make all kinds of playful little expressions. Sorry, I really can’t [keep watching] the show anymore, I’m leaving [+1352]

How many dramas must Zhou Dongyu destroy for her to understand that she is really really really not suitable for the small screen…. As someone who has seen at least 7 of Ms Zhou’s movies, I am giving my input. Zhou Dongyu, please leave the TV drama circle. [+4390 upvotes]

Zhou Dongyu looks like a little girl who never grows up. Yet she plays the role of the most beautiful woman in the world of immortals. This drama is trying to bully the ordinary audience like us just because we have never seen immortals before? [+4309]

Drama review score by commenter: 1/5

Zhou Dongyu’s acting skills and ancient costume was so awkward to the point that I dug out three rooms and a living room with my toes. Both her acting and appearance were surpassed by the supporting actors. There were instances that I thought she got possessed by Yang Mi. The failure of this show proves that that the actors should not attempt in themes and costume dramas where they are not good at. The plot is illogical and boring. I advise Zhou Dongyu not to accept everything just for the money. [Her] acting skills and this “Waterloo” [level type of drama], is more unacceptable than Zhang Ziyi’s TV series. [+3299]

The actors playing the supporting role is made to look particularly outstanding by the leading cast.

Is Ancient Love Poetry Worth Watching?

Based on the comments by Chinese netizens, Ancient Love Poetry is one to watch if you are a fan of xianxia shows, particularly those with superb special effects. The theme of female empowerment is also prominent in this one, as the female lead is a strong female goddess here.

If you are a fan of Zhou Dongyu’s movies and find that she looks pretty in her first costume drama, you can also consider the show. While some have doubts about whether Zhong Dongyu is “fit” for the role, she remains an actress with many outstanding acting achievements. Her technical acting skills cannot be too bad.

From the comments above, the issue with those who did not like Zhou Dongyu as the lead actress may be her ‘suitability’ for the role. Many familiar with movie roles in shows such as “Us and Them” and “The Day of Becoming You” may prefer to see her in a more ‘modern’ day dressing rather than a costume drama.

However, if you have read the novel that inspired the drama beforehand and have a preconceived mental image of what an ‘immortal goddess’ should look like, perhaps you can take a look first at the trailer below to see if this show may be for you.

Ultimately, these comments from Douban are merely individual opinions of drama fans and whether a drama is truly good or not depends on the taste of the viewers.

  1. The story is indeed good but I agree with some people’s comments on Zhou dongyu . I mean like she looks way too old as a female lead opposite to Xu Kai. Plus her looks doesn’t fit the role for a chief god .
    I have had watched other immortal or costume dramas where the female lead looked beautiful but Zhou Dongyu is damn ugly . When I watched the first episode I thought she would be a supportive cast but it turns out that she was the female lead….I’m totally disappointed with this. Xu kai is a great and handsome actor , pairing him with such an ugly actor was not what I expected …..hmmm
