Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace 如懿传 viewership ratings does not disappoint as the show hits 100 million views within the first half hour of its release on streaming site Tencent. It’s still too early to tell how public opinion will sway henceforth, but it looks promising at least. Update: Show has reached 200 million views in less than 15 hours. Eight episodes have been released for members, 2 episodes are available for non-members.
However, what seems to be trending the night that the show premiered was not whether the show is good or bad, but the annoyance of having to deal with ads at the bottom of the screen that even covered the subtitles.
Tencent acknowledged the issue 20 minutes into the episode and apologized to viewers stating that there was a bug in the ads and that it has been fixed as of 8:28pm.
