1. Bitch in the Palace  5 Types of Chinese TV Dramas CHINESE, DRAMA, TYPE A long time ago in a stupid dynasty not that far away, a young and naive girl was married to the Emperor as a concubine. As much as she wants to stay nameless, the Emperor spots her on his walk back from a 100-woman orgy and falls madly in love. Her bestie in the Palace turns against her, her parents are put in danger, and her first child is murdered - then she becomes a real bitch. With the help of a guy in the friend-zone, she eliminates all the other women and makes her son the new Emperor. Chinese Green Tea Bitches identify and sympathize with the character:"All I want is a simple life... Why do I have to be so smart, kind and beautiful?!"

2. The Newly Weds  5 Types of Chinese TV Dramas CHINESE, DRAMA, TYPE Young couple finally get married despite objections from both families. Then, shit got real.

The marriages dies, but the wife gets knocked up right the divorce. Fuck. Every Newly Wed drama shows us the importance of family, and also using a condom.

3. Supernatural Fantasy  5 Types of Chinese TV Dramas CHINESE, DRAMA, TYPE Every Supernatural Fantasy drama is about an ordinary supernatural kid trying to hone their skill and become immortal. Sometimes the main character can be an animal, but only if the story is set before 1949. Every Supernatural Fantasy character has an obsessive-compulsive disorder. They are obsessed with a long lost sword, a deeply buried secret, or a person from legend. They are so obsessed with it that they will eventually get killed by their soulmate. Even if they are lucky enough to survive, they realize immortality is meaningless and commit suicide. But remember, when they die they die in cheap white silk dresses and with ridiculous special effects.

4. The Undercover Operative  5 Types of Chinese TV Dramas CHINESE, DRAMA, TYPE “I don’t know how I became an undercover spy. I think my professor tricked me into it. Sometimes I even doubt if I believe in the Party. I mean, the job is pretty easy... they always give you a little orientation on the spy shit. Also I just happen to always have access to highly confidential documents! If I get caught, I’ll just blame on my coworkers and then secretly kill them. Despite killing most of the coworkers my boss never catches on. The one thing I hate about the job... I’m not a fan of the fake wife the Party assigned me. But somehow I'll fall in love with her anyways. Will victory will be ours? I don't know, because I’ll be dead or deported to Taiwan in the last episode!"
