This summer is shaping up to be a busytime in c-dramaland as the list of dramas grow longer with each new premiere. Legend of Fuyao continues the rise as it reaches 5.2 billion views online by its third week of airing.
Sweet Dreams and Legend of Yun Xi which both premiered on June 25 have racked up 1.5 billion and 1 billion views respectively.
My Story For You which had the same premiere day as Fuyao on June 18 is not doing nearly as well as expected, but it brings in a respectable 700 million views as of July.
Guardian also enters the month of July with higher numbers as it reaches 1.2 billion views.
Medical Examiner Dr. Qin 2 brings in 600 million views.
Mengfei Comes Across faced some broadcasting issues when it was taken off the air for about a week before resuming broadcast on June 18. It has reached 700 million views as of this month.
Deep in the Realm of Conscience which was the leading web drama for some time ends its run with over 3 billion views on Tencent. It also aired its final week on TVB this week.
So happy for Legend of Yun Xi doing so well. I love it! It's cliche idol drama and isn't exactly doing anything new but it does what it does well and the chemistry between the leads is fso intense!
Yes, I've been enjoying it too. It's surprising since I'm very picky towards 'idol drama', but this one is enjoyable. The chemistry between the leads is great, the story is interesting, the romantic development has been growing naturally and sweet while the leads are working and helping each other (instead of too many flirting and kissing). The supporting characters are mostly good too.
Never thought that I'm hooked by a drama like this :p .
Yes! I’m enjoying it way more than Fuyao and Sweet Dreams.
Go LFY and Yunxi!
Legend of fuyao is superb. Loving it. Glad to see it doing well.
legend of fuyao is amazing. i love the chemistry between the leads and their costars. costume, choreography, cinematography, comedy…i'm glued. i'm so glad ethan and yang mi are doing their characters justice. go fuyao! i hope more people give this series a chance instead of hating on the main actor/actress. i hope this series becomes a rating monster…
Some people stopped watching Fuyao because they found it boring. Everyone has different tastes.
@ lam, you're right, it's so addictive… I find myself waiting impatiently for new episodes. @2.b you're right, everyone has different tastes, no one is disputing that.
I find legend of yunxi unbearable to watch (tired of typical cliche dramas) , sweet dreams is cringey asf…. Legend of fuyao is the only plot that keeps me interested, maybe it's cause I've read the book.
Oh my, you're so right, I couldn't get past two episodes of legend of yunxi. Sweet dreams is meh.I am enjoying LOFY, the cast,costumes,plot,cinematography is so on point. Ethan is officially my favourite actor.
I am enjoying both legend of Yunxi and sweet dreams so far. I am also watching Fuyao. It has better production value than those two but I don't care about the main leads much and find the doctor more interesting.
I don’t care why people may not being watching Fuyao…all I know is that I am enjoying it so much. I haven’t watched a C drama since Tientsin Mystic and TMOPB because so many disappointing ones and I can’t invest in long, dragged out dramas. However, Fuyao although not perfect is very good thus far. I haven’t seen Ethan since FTLY and he’s done an amazing job as Wuji and deserves more credit for his acting. I am enjoying all the plot, side characters, production and soundtrack too. Am looking forward to see where it goes as it goes into the mid-way point and then the second half.
Deep in the Realm of Conscience was very good, it is a bit cliché, but besides the usual palace scheming, there's forensics/investigation and romance arcs, which is interesting, the entire cast did a great job, & at 36 episodes, it's quite fast paced. Annie's fans will see a different/more cutesy side of her from her Scarlet Heart's too sad role. I highly recommend it, lol
