Its shocking ending created some buzz as the series came to a close for its VIP subscribers. The drama's male lead Zhang Ruoyun conquers the celebrity list followed by Xiao Zhan who plays a supporting role while female lead Li Qin caps the list in tenth.

The newly-premiered Under the Power makes a surprise entry as it snatches 4th place along with its two leads, Ren Jialun and Tang Sonyun, who rank 6th and 8th. Yang Zi also makes it back on the list in 9th place. Modern romance drama Please Love Me caps the web rankings. 

On to TV dramas, Rush Into Danger at the 10pm slot ended on Monday and was replaced by Rebirth of Shopping AddictMing Dynasty continues to be the reigning drama on TV with a new high of 2.111%! The Best Partner comes in second as it stands only a few digits shy of breaking 2% by the end of the week. The Chinese Dream soared high on its last week and reached its highest rating ever - 1.720%. Han Geng's new romance drama Still not Enough takes over its slot.

  1. I am seriously enjoying Under the Power in spite of it poor quality set and props. The two leads and supporting cast have great chemistry.

    1. Same here too.

    2. Same...this is the most beautiful custome drama I have ever watched, and I have seen a lot. The 2 leads desrced to be in that ranking. Proof enough that stayed at the top and continue there until now. The drama ended in January and is March and they are still at the top in this week ranking. Kudos for the drama.

  2. Does anyone know why Joy of Life is only available on web but not airing on TV?

    1. Because it's only bought by the online distributors!!

  3. Ahhhh when will a Yang Mi drama airrrrrrrrrr???? The most recent (and only 2019) drama she starred in was literally aired in May 2019. Shockingly surprising for such a popular actress. The frustration!!!
