    Does anyone know any good Chinese dramas or films set in an ancient historical setting, or some not too goofy cultivation ones? Female-centric ones would be especially good, and romances are extremely welcome.

    After seeing this music video here, I really want to write a yuri cultivation story, but I'd like to make it a bit more serious than most of the cultivation stories I read. Dramas are probably better at capturing the atmosphere I'd like, but I've only really watched Korean ones.

    (P.S. Planning this will probably take me a while, and I have things I need to write before this. If you're interested in reading it, it might be a long while before it comes out.)

    Eh about 1st or 2nd episode? But it's just an attempt rape. I only watch to episode 3, but the story and costumes are good. M

    Not at all! Some of the doramas are old, but they are all very good. :)

    it's not female protagonist and not a romance but about politics in court, even though sometimes make me confused but I really enjoyed watching it, the story is good the costume is good, and the actors is good. If you have time try watching it :blobsmilehappyeyes:

    For romance, i heard that The story of Minglan is good, but i haven't watched it yet so I'm not sure. But you can check it out too.. :blob_grin:

    It might be a bit too different from what I'm aiming for, but I'll give it a shot. Thank you~!

    It would be great if there was, but I won't hold my breath.
