  1. In the Name of the People (20 billion views)                      6. Surgeons
  2. Fighter of the Destiny  (7 billion views)                               7. Three Lives Three Worlds Peach Blossom
  3. Glory of Tang Dynasty  (5 billion views)                              8. Because of You
  4. Across the Ocean to See You                                                  9. —
  5. Razor                                                                                           10. Heirs

No surprise that In the Name of the People would top the list. Surgeons is doing a lot worse than I thought it would.

  1. Can’t believe 3l3w is still on the list! Lol but also not surprised but I am surprise by Surgeon maybe because of thw slow romance or some people aren’t too fond of the pace?? Also, sooo proud of DILIREBA and even though I knew it was a stretch, wanted to see Yang Rong on the list just because I miss her😂😂yay for ZLY😍😍


    1. Are the two leads not together yet in Surgeon? I saw previews and they were moving along ok. Gotta say…they drama is a little too slow paced. I’m still stuck on 10. hahah
      Yang Rong really need a drama that would put the limelight on her! She deserves it.

      1. Im on 24 so I say yes but no idk how to explain their relationship 😂😂its going but…😂 AND YES, need more Yang Rong in dramas and in the limelight, she such a great actress 😍😍😍


        1. hahaha. I saw some previews. It’s slow but cute tho.
          Absolutely agree! She was awesome in Memory Lost. Hope we’ll see more of her in the coming year.

  2. The Devotion of Suspect X is the highest-grossing Chinese movie so far since Chinese New Year, so not surprising all three main stars in the movie list.


  3. Pretty impressive for In The Name of the People. It got leaked online pretty early and it still has 20 billion views and I wouldn’t be surprise if it is closer to 30 billion by the end of the year due to buzz.
    The Glory of Tang also left its mark on this list. I think BHH was really high on some online rankings more due to her controversy than her currently airing drama. Surgeons has been struggling. Now that the juggernaut that was ITNOP is over, it has a chance to rise a bit on the rankings.
    I am happy to see Zhou Dongyu, Janice Wu and ZLY’s names.


    1. Yes, wonder what the number will be if it included the leaked version. I watched the regular verson for may be 10, 12 episodes and finished the series via the leaked version.(just can’t wait, and clock thing don’t bother me much).

      The leaked version on youtube had 300k views, which is impressive considering it’s uploaded by a random channel and youtube itself is banned in China.


      1. Yep I imagine the leaks have even more views in China. Everyone likes marathoning and not waiting every week/day for new episodes.


    1. Yup! Absolutely agree. Popularity does not mean anything if they can’t act. They’re usually forgotten quickly if that’s the case.


  4. Surgeons is really boring for people who don’t like medical dramas. There’s too many technical terms each episode, and very less story on the leads.
