love and redemption rankings

CSM59 Cities + Online

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a web drama leading the weekly rankings and we’ve got just the drama for the job as Cheng Yi and Yuan Bingyan’s fantasy romance Love and Redemption snags 1st place online. Reunion: The Sound of the Providence comes in 2nd ahead of the TV dramas.

Meanwhile, a new batch of dramas have recently premiered on Chinese television. Go Ahead with its three lovable leads Seven Tan Songyun, Song Weilong and Steven Zhang Xincheng easily takes 1st place with its numbers breaking a high of 3.096% in CSM59 ratings on its first day. The Way Love Begins and Heroic Journey of Nezha both ended their run in 2nd and 3rd. Also among the new premieres are Nie Yuan and Wu Jinyan’s Knock on the Happiness Door as well as Song Jia and Yuan Hong’s Under the Sun. Both have garnered CSM59 ratings just above 1%.

Go Ahead is currently in 4th place online while Knock on the Happiness Door settles for 9th. With Cheng Yi playing the male lead who simply melts hearts, it’s really no surprise to see the Love and Redemption actor climbing to 3rd. Go Ahead actress Tan Songyun also enters the list in 5th place.
