1. The Romance of Tiger and Rose
Here’s one of the most interesting crossworlds travel Chinese dramas ever! It has a unique setup – the female lead is a screenwriter who gets transported into her own story! It happens when she falls asleep in the process of re-writing the story. Her historical is criticized by the crew so much that the male lead doesn’t even want to play his role. That’s why an aspiring screenwriter desperately tries to make it better.
So, the author of the historical becomes a crossworlds traveler and wakes up in the body of a side character. This character is supposed to be killed in the third episode. Since it’s the script the female lead has written herself, she knows it better than anyone else. At the moment, she is not a writer of this story anymore but merely a Princess with a short lifespan. Yet, she wants to change it so that she survives and finds her way out from the world of her own making. Will she be able to change the fate of her character? Especially after catching the attention of two men.
“The Romance of Tiger and Rose” is probably one of the first dramas that parodies all the typical drama tropes and is somehow comical about them. Also, although it’s quite a lighthearted TV show, it covers the topic of gender inequality.
Who should watch this series? If you do not like draggy misunderstandings and unnecessary conflicts, you will definitely like it! It’s quite fast-paced, and every conflict is solved within several episodes. Moreover, the majority of angsty moments are satirized.
