  • This list is updated as more dramas are announced.
  • We do our best to cover newly-airing mainstream Chinese dramas and a few web dramas / Korean dramas that catch our eye.
  • We rely on weibo for announcements, so dramas that are not yet officially announced might not be here.
  • For a more comprehensive list of dramas airing this month, please check out ChineseDrama.info.


  1. Why even bother to write this post? You clearly didn't do any research. There is a ton of drama coming in October and you only say two. And the second one is even only a rumor. I see a trend here. The posts on this blog here are seldom well researched it seems. Really disappointed. Fans who don't know Chinese rely on your posts. You should do better research or just don't post if you only want to do it half hearted.
    No offense intended, just my personal opinion as a disappointed reader of your blog. Won't come to this blog anymore if you don't start to do better research before posting something.

    1. Is it the same dumb troll who goes around hating on the blog in various posts? Own up to your words and disappear for good.

    2. It's okay. I am not offended and sorry you feel that way. But felt the need to clarify that this list, as it has always been, include dramas that we cover on this blog. So far entrep age is the big one for October and I don't think dramas have been confirmed for other networks yet.

      There is a link to ChineseDrama.Info which should have the list of October dramas, but perhaps I can consider listing them all out if more people feel the same way.

    3. If this site is so below your precious standards instead of posting your miserable, bitter rants all over the place why don't you just leave! Constructive criticism is one thing but your posts are just rude and disrespectful.

      Back to the topic at hand:
      Entrepreneurial Age - sounds interesting but nope at Angelababy
      Tang Dynasty Tour - I'm still confused about the whole time travel ban thing. So is it OK now?

    4. I agree with the original comment. It is misleading and does seem there's not a lot of thoughts put behind the post. If this only includes drama that the blog will cover, then a statement clarifying that would be helpful. Especially for those that rely on this site for upcoming dramas.

    5. @Sunny: Time Travel is somehow okay for web dramas. I don't know why haha

      @Anon4: I think that's fair. Added notes at the bottom. I really don't feel it is that misleading because it's not like this list includes random dramas. We try to cover most if not all of the 'big' dramas on this blog and that will be reflected on the list when the premieres are announced.

  2. "Entreprenuer Age" is also another drama to celebrate 40 years of China's economic reform. It's a tribute series. A lot of tribute series will be airing this month and up to December.

    There are quite a few tribute series with a lot of recognizable faces doing the tribute series
