Sometimes you just wanna watch a drama that'll unravel a secret identity and see how that identity revelation will affect the plot, don't you? Or maybe you just wanna watch a drama full of mystery related to one's identity. Or a drama where one has another identity. Either way, a drama related to the lead's identity, right? 

The Long Ballad

"I remember when we first met, that was the saddest point of my life, I lost my families, but you showed up. Now it's also your worst moment, I will definitely not leave you. We've been through so much about life and death, and we can also face those together in the future. There are a lot of things we have not done together. There are many places we have not visited together".

Cast - Dilraba Dilmurat as Li Chang Ge / Princess Yong Ning / Li Shi Si + Wu Lei as Ashile Sun

The female lead in this drama who is Chang Ge hides her identity as the princess of Chang'an and changes her gender to a man with a different name. The male lead in this drama who is Sun hides his identity as the leader of the Eagle Division of the Ashile Tribe. 

This drama is a really good choice if you like a lot of action scenes. Containing many wars and deaths, this drama has a balance of romance and its main plot. I really enjoyed this drama and really would rewatch it again.

Cast - Sarah Zhao as Ren Dong + Angel Liu as Gu Qiang Wei

The female lead who is Ren Dong is actually the real daughter of Gu Feng. The female lead who is Gu Qiang Wei is the girl that was switched with Ren Dong, who is the daughter of servant Fang Cheng.

This drama was the first Asian/Chinese that I had watched before entering the drama circle.  When I watched it, it was airing on youtube so it was very hard to keep my cool waiting for the next episode. I really enjoyed the plot and setting. The setting really was very different from what I have seen in other dramas.

Love O2O

"Moral character is essential in a man. Wei Wei. It's my first time being with a girl. I often don't know what to do. At least, for now I have to be capable of what others can do."

Cast - Zheng Shuang as Be Wei Wei | Lu Wei Wei + Yang Yang as Xiao Nai | Yi Xiao Nai He

Bei Wei Wei who is the female lead is actually Lu Wei Wei in the game, while  Xiao Nai who is the male lead is actually Yi Xiao Nai He in the game.

Now this was the drama that I rewatched multiple times before getting bored of it. The chemistry was really enjoyable and unlike other online games dramas this drama has a very beautiful showcase of the game inside.

Parallel Love 

"Jiao Yang, even if time flew backward, even if we never meet again, please remember that someone named Lin Miao loves you very much."

Cast - Li Hong Yi as Jiao Yang + Kirai Shi as Lin Miao | Lin Wei Jun

Lin Miao who is the female lead is actually from the year 2020, and she travels back to the year 2010.

As for this drama, I really liked the plot. The story is about going back in time and only being able to go back to your world after completing a mission. Some parts were boring but for a 24 episode drama this drama is a good choice. Containing the boss and secretary/personal assistant trope in a time travel drama was something different and likable.

Douluo Continent

"So what if she is a human or a Soul Beast? All I know is that she is my sister! She is also my lover! No matter what will happen in the future, I will always be with her! I will always protect her. I won't abandon her!"

Xiao Wu who is the female lead is not a human. Whereas,  Sang Tan who is the male lead has dual martial souls along with his mom and dad having a long history with Martial Soul Hall. 

This was the  drama that I saw on MDL before it even aired. I was so eager to watch this drama and not gonna lie it was better than I expected it to be. I personally enjoyed the multiple couples in this drama. Each couple had a good amount of screen time along with each character.

Word Of Honor 

"You have sharp instincts and could immediately tell that I'm indeed a blind idiot. As long as you can treat him, I'm willing to kneel for three months, much less three days."

Cast - Gong Jun as Wen Ke Xing + Zhang Zhe Han as Zhou Zi Shu | Zhou Xu

Wen Ke Xing is the male lead who is the chief of Ghost Valley. While, Zhou Zi Shu is the male lead who is actually leader of Window Of Heaven and belongs to the Four Seasons Manor sect.

After watching The Untamed this drama was on my list of dramas to watch right away after it airs. Bromance is my weakness - watching dramas that include bromance is way better than dramas without them. Bromance is on a whole other level in this drama. Also, the difference in the leads' personalities was something that I really enjoyed. I highly recommend this one.

Handsome Siblings 

"I knew it. We couldn't be enemies. We're actually brothers! Blood brother!"

Episodes: 44
Duration: 46 min.
Genres:  Hidden Identity, Friendship, Bromance, Comedy, Historical Wuxia, Romance, Drama
Where to watch: Viki

Cast - Hu Yi Tian as Hua Wu Que | Jiang Feng + Chen Zhe Yuan as Jiang Xiao Yu

Hua Wu Que is the brother that was raised by the sisters Princess Yao Yue and Lian Xing in Yi Hua Palace. While on the other hand,  Jiang Xiao Yu was the brother that was raised by the Ten Great Villains in the Villains’ Valley.

As much as I loved this drama I didn't enjoy the whole suspense/mystery in between the drama. I also did not like the whole romance plot, but other than that, this drama really got me absorbed into it because of the hidden identity trope. Maybe if this was shortened to 30 episodes and had a good balance maybe it would be better. However, if you're a Hu Yi Tian fan then just watch it. You won't regret it and neither did I.

  What do you think? Would you watch these dramas with hidden identity leads/identity revelation/multiple identities!? - Sly
