Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy 九州·海上牧云记 has dropped a poster announcing that it has reached 2 billion views across the Chinese streaming websites. Considering that many of the most-viewed Youtube videos of all time are in the 2 billion range, it’s crazy to imagine just how many people are watching this. It’s still got a ways to go before joining the 10 billion club which is the norm for the most popular c-dramas but at one billion per week, I’m sure it’ll get there in no time. Moreover, the show has also been receiving good reviews since its premiere and it has an accumulated Douban rating of 8.2 as of today.
Hey, I'd love to know, drama's have made it to the 10 billion mark? Also just really curious since population of China is around 1.3 billion, do you happen to know how a show can reach 2 billion +? Do some people watch it multiple times..
several dramas have reached 10 billion. there's a not-so-updated list here: https://cnewsdevotee.wordpress.com/2016/12/11/chinese-dramas-with-over-10-billion-online-views/. now hit dramas have 30 to 40 billion views, like eternal love and princess agents. Also in 2017, General and I has reached 15 billion views and Fighter of the Destiny has 27 billion views.
i think it means accumulative views? obviously not all 1.3 billion people will watch a single drama. maybe about 500 million viewers watch all 50 episodes. that will be 25 billion already. tribes and empires has 75 episodes so they have a high chance to pass 10 billion.
