Do you have another drama to add to this list?

It's really serendipitous that this year's Chinese Valentine's Day comes right after the rare solar eclipse. In the original legend from more than 2,600 years ago, the couple, known as the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl, were only able to cross the great divide of the Milky Way by walking across a celestial bridge formed by numerous flocks of magpies. Wasn't that imaginative?

Luckily we don't have to even get out of the house to enjoy a lovely romantic tale these days.

Enjoy the romance and the promise of 7-7, known as Qi Qi (or Chi Chi), and happy viewing!
