Previous <- Ratings and Top Ten -> Next
Do you keep changing your source of tv ratings? It used to be csm52 then recently csm59 and now it’s csm63? It’s really confusing and it’s misleading to international readers because they assume it’s all the same thing. It’s not the same.
Of course ool is not first on tv, xz fans are literally hate this Channel so they will only watch on tencent.
That’s just bullshit claim. TV ratings is considers very important for the productions and for the actors. Fans will try as hard as they can to increase the ratings no matter what. That kind of excuse is an insult to readers’ intelligence. But again, fans will always try all kinds of excuses so understandable.
Ool is boring. This one was in my “a must watch” list but after ep 3, i decided to quit watching it.
Be my princess is fun to watch, so far. But not really my fave.
I watched Tao’s new drama and it’s not bad. But it’s not in this list.
OoL is average, if it weren’t for Yang Zi and Xiao Zhan it wouldn’t even be in the top ten. I wish Cdrama viewers would encourage quality and stop bombarding mediocrity with 10/10’s
OoL is quite boring…but then again the novel was really boring too. They made a lot of changes, but it’s not that good. I wasn’t going to check it because of the novel, but decided to watch because of the leads. Dropped after 3 episodes.
I quite enjoy TOOL. Just finished ep 12. It’s my first romcom. The plot is average but the acting of the whole cast is on point. I especially enjoyed the comedic segments and the Gu Wei character portrayed by Xiao Zhan. It’s a nice sweet romcom with warmth and heart.
The beginning episodes were kind of slow, but it gets better and better. It’s so much more fun with ep #9 and up. XZ and YZ have very good chemistry. Can’t wait to watch the rest of the episodes. Xiao Zhan is an excellent actor and so good looking. I love the way they styled him here. Yang Zi is much cuter (look and styling) in this drama than “Go Go Squid!”.
OOL is a complete snoozefest. But the lead actor’s/actress’s fans will eat it up like the good sheep they are.
You don’t have to watch it if you don’t like it, but there is no need to put other people down.
Despite the fact that that I like XZ, this drama is really not worth watching.
YZ is like mamy other chinese women trying to exist in this industry, good looking but lacking of any kind of talent. Try to wacht “my mooglie boy” and you will understand what’s about.
Yz not Talented?are you blind haha
She couldn’t be an actress this far if shes not..btw i watch all her drama ..shes very good actress.she can bring the best out of his her leading men
You haters are so oblivious 😅😅😅 go spend energy on your favs, the drama is a hit now with 1,2% and 230 mill per day
