2018 has already started off strongly with some awesome C-dramas, and it only gets better from here! Our favorite stars (as well as some incredibly adorable rookies) will be gracing us with their on-screen presence in these upcoming dramas that you won’t want to miss out on.

(Note: This list of dramas is not in any particular order. Also, the most current information available was used for release dates. Happy reading!)

“Only Side By Side With You”

Starring: William Chan, Bai Bai He, Qin Hai Lu, Li Xian

Release date: March 25, 2018

Nan Qiao (Bai Bai He) is a career-oriented woman who breaks up with her fiancé after catching him having an affair. Shi Yue (William Chan) was once an aspiring soldier, but is now a nightclub owner and a gigolo. When the two meet, Shi Yue discovers that Nan Qiao may be a key piece to his past. In an effort to discover the truth, he attempts to get closer to her and unexpectedly finds himself falling in love.

It’s William Chan and Bai Bai He. How can anyone not be excited for this? Also, can we take a moment to appreciate Bai He’s facial expression here? I mean, this is one female lead that should not be messed with…teddy bear or no teddy bear. And William Chan playing a young man shrouded in a mystery as dark as his past? You better believe I’ll be watching this one.

“Heavy Sweetness, Ash-Like Frost”

Starring: Yang Zi, Deng Lun, Wang Yi Fei, Luo Yun Xi

Release date: April 16, 2018

Before Jin Mi (Yang Zi)’s mother dies, she gives her daughter a magic pill that prevents her from feeling any emotions connected to romance. When Jin Mi grows up, however, she becomes the object of affection for two heavenly deities, Xu Feng (Deng Lun) and Run Yu ( Luo Yun Xi). Tricked into thinking her father died at Xu Feng’s hand, she kills him, coughing up the magic pill in the process. He is revived decades later as the Demon Lord, and wages war against Run Yu, who has become the Heavenly Emperor in the meantime.

From the bold color palette to the beautifully-manicured hairstyles, this drama looks like it’s going to be perfect for fantasy lovers! And if you’re sick of the typical love triangle trope, this one is definitely for you. Since when does the female lead kill one of her suitors, only to have him revived as the Demon Lord to fight off her other love interest?
