CSM59 Cities + Online

It's definitely a season to be merry for the cast and crew of historical drama Ming Dynasty after the series achieved an all-time high of 2.044%. It has certainly been a while since we've seen a drama hit that number. Ming Dynasty also moves up from fifth to third in online rankings. Honestly, all the primetime dramas are faring really well this week, The Best Partner reached 1.724% and places second online while The Chinese Dream ended the week with 1.618%. 

Joy of Life and its male lead, Zhang Ruoyun, are both on their fourth week reigning in their respective lists while the drama's female lead, Li Qin, ranks 8th. With Ming Dynasty becoming a hit, it's not surprising to see its star, Zhu Yawen, entering the list in 4th while The Best Partner main lead, Jin Dong, places in 6th. Sports drama Unstoppable Youth takes the 9th place while idol-fantasy drama To Get Her which airs its VIP finale tonight caps the list.
