Joy of Life leaked, Top 10 Chinese Online Dramas and Actors at the moment 12.22.2019


Hi guys, Marcus here and welcome to Chinese
Entertainment Update December 22nd 2019 edition. In today’s edition, the Top 10 Chinese Online
Dramas and Actors at the moment, but first.. All 46 episodes of Joy of Life have been leaked
online. On December 20th, New Classics Media Television,
Tencent and iQiyi released a joint statement saying that Tencent
and iQiyi are the only two official streaming sites for Joy of Life. They said that on December 19th, they discovered
that the entire series was leaked online and that they had reported it to the police
and the people’s court. Now I don’t know if announcing that was really
a good idea. I know they want to shine some light on matter
but if people were waiting for episodes didn’t know the entire series was available
on unofficial sites, well they do now. They concluded the letter by saying that the
cast and crew spent 173 days and nights “shedding their hearts’ blood” to bring this drama to
everyone. Personally, I watch my dramas on official sites but, I’m not going to point my finger and judge people just because they watch on
unofficial sites. There are many reasons why people do it:
One of the main ones is subs – many official channels choose to only cater to the Chinese speaking audience and don’t bother with English subs. Some unofficial sites say hey, I’m going to
capitalize on that and create subs to fulfill that market. Another reason is ads. People don’t like ads, they don’t want to
pay for the VIP service so they choose an unofficial site even though generally speaking
the picture quality is not as good. It has never been easier to access pirated
material, yet box office and streaming records keep getting
broken and profits continue to rise. So, yea the producers are doing just fine. Now I’m not saying it’s right but it is
part of the industry. Moving on, I just want to quickly mention
Ming Dynasty with Tang Wei and Zhu Yawen which is at the moment the No. 1 TV series in China. I’m four episodes in and loving it so far. Anyway, some of you have mentioned that you
can’t find Ming Dynasty on YouTube. I can find it perfectly here in Canada so
I’m guessing it’s a regional restriction in your area. As a solution, you can use a VPN which should
get you around it. Your other option is to check out unofficial
sites but the YouTube channel has English subs. The data is provided by Vlinkage, a marketing
consultant company based in Shanghai. The list is based on view counts on Tencent,
iQiyi and Youku, social media discussions and Baidu searches. So the list is based on online
performances only, not TV. The costume drama stars Daddi Tang and Huang
Riying and tells the story of a pop idol who gets
trapped inside a video game and his girlfriend who enters it to rescue him. The modern drama stars Alan Yu and Vivi Miao
and tells the story of an aspiring volleyball athelete who has to overcome her limitations. The modern drama stars Nie Yuan and Song Yi
and revolves around criminal cases and the roles medical examiners play in them. The costume drama stars Xu Kai and Sandrine
Pinna and follows a young genius who cultivates
immortality under the tutelage of a beautiful but sharp-tongued master. The modern drama stars Judy Qi and Derek Chang
and tells an ugly duckling story of a high school girl who blossoms into supermodel and
her high school senior who becomes famous chef. The costume drama stars Landy Li and Wang
Anyu and follows a young girl, who in her dreams,
travels to the Qing dynasty and catches the attention of a few princes. The costume drama stars Yuan Hao and Zhao
Zhaoyi and tells the story of a general’s daughter
who accidentally becomes the wife of a pirate king. The costume drama stars Luo Jin and Li Yitong
and tells the story of a crown prince who faces enemies from all sides and falls in
love with a maidservant who wants to kill him. The costume drama stars Li Xian and Li Yitong
and tells the story of a sword cultivator who plots to avenge his master’s death and
overthrow the tyrannical king of Heng. The costume drama stars Zhang Ruoyun and Li
Qin and follows a progressive-thinking noble who’s
intent on pushing through political reforms but is constantly opposed by the tyrannical
ruler of Qing. So both Dreaming Back to the Qing Dynasty
and The Romance of Huarong rise to the top five whereas the top three from last week
are unmoved. With the exception of Love the Way You Are,
all these dramas are available on YouTube with English subs. Also provided by Vlinkage, the list is based
on drama performances, Baidu searches and social media discussions. He currently stars in Unstoppable Youth with
Vivi Miao. She currently stars in Joy of Life wih Zhang
Ruoyun. She currently stars in Royal Nirvana and Sword
Dynasty. He is currently filming Legend of Fei with
Zhao Liying and was also announced to star in Being a
Hero with Chen Xiao. He was just in Blossom in Heart
and stars in the Onmyoji Chinese movie adaptation with Mark Chao. He currently stars in Ming Dynasty with Tang
Wei. He was recently in My True Friend with Angelababy
and will star in To Dear Myself with Cecilia Liu. He recently starred in the movie Jade Dynasty and wrapped filming Oath of Love with Yang
Zi. He currently stars in Sword Dynasty with Li
Yitong. He currently stars in the Joy of Life with
Li Qin. So Zhang Ruoyun dethrones Li Xian as the number
one drama actor at the moment, not surprising considering the popularity of Joy of Life. Also noteworthy is Zhu Yawen who debuts at
number five after the premiere of Ming Dynasty and Yang Zi drops completely off the list;
she was number five last week. So there you go, the top 10 Chinese online
dramas and actors at the moment. Hope it gives you guys an idea of who and
what drama’s hot at the moment in Chinese dramaland. And that’s it for today guys. Do check out my Patreon page where you can

  1. i heard about the leak from another chinese entertainment announcer. i'm still wondering how that happened in the first place.

  2. Recently, Im following " Romance of huarong" and loving it but I really want to know that Why??? Seriously Why they cut it out almost every intimate scenes of them?? And sometimes I also feel poor sound quality. I really want them to fix these problems because Im really invested in their ongoing story and enjoying it 😍😍

  3. Thanks for the update again Marcus ❤️!! Happy Holiday to you too & i hope you're having a good day😌! I first watch Once upon a Time in Lingjian Mountain, but after watching Joy of life I'm loving it more so I stop it for a while, & I also like Dreaming back to the Qing Dynasty. Royal Nirvana was good at the beginning but it was a little slower for me. N Sword Dynasty is also good. But right now for me Joy of Life is the best so far. N also No.3 Xiaozhan congratulations my love I can't believe it, he hadn't had any drama since the Untamed & his last movie was also Jade Dynasty& Zhan Rouyun as no.1. well he truly deserve that spot. Not a fan of him earlier but after Joy of Life I'm loving him so much 😌❤️!!

  4. For me it is primarily because of geographical restrictions.Even official youtube channels sometimes do not have videos available in my region.

    Also wish you a Merry christmas Marcus 🙂 !

  5. Thanks very much for the INFO Marcus

  6. To all fans of yanxi palace
    There is a drama to air on 31 Dec 2019.not sure English title
    A continuation drama based on yanxi palace with original cast on another couple in this drama
    I have no interest in qing dynasty drama

  7. If the leak joy of life has the full episodes Subbed I don't mind watching it as well, too bad now I'm so used to 1080 as opposed to 480… I think I'll wait for WeTV after all there so many other good dramas to catch up on.
    Ups and down the chart ladder I guess that's very normal. All the actors did a great job in entertaining us all so kudos to them.

    Cheers Marcus that's for the updates ❤️🌹🥂

  8. Mind Dynasty is available in the US on youtube. So far I am really enjoying it. But let's be real, waiting for Pillow Book

  9. The moment I saw Zhang Ruoyun I felt complete… 👌💯. He deserves it, his acting is top notch not just his face😘😍.

  10. Zhang RuoYun & the Untaned cast is wht I was looking for. No doubt they are in top 10.
    Coming to Joy of life it really has become a joy for my life.
    I liked watching Dreaming back to Qing dynasty too ,there are so much of drams I have to watch, wish I cld stop time.
    Thanks sir I always follow ur uploads to choose the drama which suits me, & they do

  11. I agree I’ve seen that but , I still watched in Tencent., I know they hacked it , so i try not yo watch it , yes I got you Ko too…
    Merry Christmas…

  12. I searched for "Joy of Life" with eng sub several times in Youtube. I found them but all are blocked in my country. & i didn't knew about the leaking episode.

  13. Merry Christmas Marcus!

    I find Love the way you are to be interesting but unfortunately, it has no eng sub. I hope mango tv channel will also sub it like The Romance of Hua Rong. Im currently watching these two dramas. Also unlucky for me that Ming dynasty is not available yet in my region. I will probably watch royal nirvana when it has at least till 35+ eps available. I will resume watching JoL and sword dynasty after Christmas.

  14. Joy of Life been leaked. It bad news.. I watched Qing Yu Nian in Tencent (weTV) i really like this drama..
    Fan Xian (Zhang Ruoyun) #1 and Waner (Li Qin) #9 👏👏👏 both deserve it.

  15. Spoilers ahead. Actually in Sword Dynasty, Ding Ning is not the apprentice of Liang Jingmeng but Liang Jingmeng himself. Is due to his Nine Death Silk worm skill he didn't died but transfer all his memories into a new body made of silk. Now everything is more interesting.

  16. Thanks Marcus. I feel like you read my mind, lol. I was thinking about this why the non official website was created & there you go your video appear.
    But I am wondering whoever created the non official website are they making profit from it?

  17. I think joy of life really had potential if everyone was on the same episode, a pity that those who paid to get vip were a few episodes earlier and everyone was on different episodes. I think one of the reasons shows get to be on trending is if everyone knows the same event that is happening at a given time, which makes for good disscussion.

  18. Zhang R yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay that is my current best actor based on pure performance. Now that Ming Dynasty lead is getting my attention 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩😁😁😁😁

  19. Thank you Marcus for recommending Joy of Life, it’s probably the most fulfilling drama for me at the moment. Of course, I watch it on VikiTV. An official site.

  20. I'm currently watching Joy of Life off an unofficial site. I noticed from the 20th that all 46 episodes is loaded online. The one I used has high quality. I can't use Qiyi or Tencent because it's geo blocked. The VPN doesn't always work for me so the quickest and easiest route for me is the unofficial sites. I feel that Chinese dramas shouldn't be restricted to certain streaming sites but be like K-dramas and be more flexible and on various streaming sites if you are looking to get more people to watch and showcase Chinese dramas to more people- not just those who speak English or Chinese.

  21. I know Tencent and iQiyi are hemorrhaging money, but their money grab for VVIP members to watch ahead of the VIP members is probably why the drama got leaked.

  22. Are modern day TV shows rarely made? Or are they just not as popular as costume dramas? I like costume dramas but its also nice to have a variety of choices like an action or comedy show.

  23. We like unofficial sites that simple, IQIYI cutted twice money from my account for one month, so it's better to watch on an unofficial one

  24. The joy of life is becoming my favorite this year. Although its leaked I'm gonna watch through official channels and just stay out of the comments sections.

  25. To all fans of Ming dynasty
    This drama is aired monday to friday china time 1200 midnight each time 2 episodes
    Sat is one episode
    Look out for the live telecast and live chat
    Last night episodes 9 and 10 were aired with english subtitles

  26. Woah Zhang Ruo Yun always my fav❤️❤️❤️ if you like Joy Of Life with Zhang Ruo Yun then he has a new upcoming drama The Fate Of General coming hopefully in 2020😍😍😍Good on ya Marcus I always watch your updates many thanks

  27. for me personally, now that JOL is leaked….it lowered my excitement and incentive to watch it since I know it's all available. I love and hate how I have to wait every day/week for new eps. It's this excitement and anticipation. Delayed gratification I guess

  28. Ming Dynasty is on youtube with eng subs although only the first 3 episodes has correct eng translations. The rest have google translation as placeholders for later revisions. So far i'm enjoying the drama and loving Tang Wei and Zhu Yuwen!

  29. I'm still watching Joy of Life at We tv app, I like this drama and all the cast have good acting skills and i'm a big fan of Xiao Zhan thank you for the updates and Merry Christmas Marcus and God bless you 🙂 cheers

  30. I have finished watching lingjian mountain. The funniest fantasy wuxia drama for me. Now I'm currently watching sword dynasty and joy of life. I love handsome and genius guys like Ding Ning and Fan Xian! So entertaining!

  31. I watched all the new dramas on your top 10 list and so far none has disappoint me. It's just a bit difficult trying to keep up with all of them 😅. HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND Merry Christimas to all! 🙂

  32. Will look for "Joy's of life". However, can't wait to hear about "shinning hours" (right name?). I watched the movie years ago and still enjoy it. Thank you for your last reply. Keep up the good work.

  33. Marcus! Happy holidays! Thank you so much for all these wonderful updates!
    I'm currently watching "Royal Nirvana" & Li Yitong delivers 100%. She caught my eye in "Bloody Romance" & I've been a fan ever since.
    Luo Jin is also exceding my expectations which were hurt by his most recent modern drama. I guess historical ones are what suit him, or the script/direction just overshadowed his acting prowess. Anyhow, I'm enjoying it so far and will try some of the ones mentioned here when I get a chance. Thank you!!!

  34. Am not surprised the entire drama leaked cos the rate at which funs were eager to watch next episode was very alarming and like what you said it's part of the industry.. CHEERS Marcus and Merry Christmas

  35. Hi Marcus
    Love your work and i have a question do u think there will be a princess agents 2 and if not do u have any advice on how to convince the producers to create a continuing version of princess agents 2. Merry Christmas.

  36. Omg we are waiting for The Wolf chinese drama for like 3 years and nothing… but then someone leeks out an entire series when it would have been relised anyway…. :(( :(( :((((((((

  37. The romance of huarong I cant find it anymorw on yourube. It's not fully subbed and scenes are missing. Where can I find it?

  38. Zhang ruo Yun muy buena está la serie es como ver cada capítulo un enigma no sabes q pasará en el arte capitulo

  39. Estoy de acuerdo con la lista Xi'an lian no me parece q sea el n2 no pasa nada el 1definitivame merecido Zhang ruo Yun el número 1

  40. Your information this time was alot to take in. So far i like what i hear on on the show and actors. But as far as the other information what can I say but "Wow!!!" No matter what I'll always watch my shows on youtube. Take my time an enjoy the shows and moments. Why rush. Savor it.

  41. I really like the plot of Royal Nirvana but I'm having a hard time understanding it, so far in every episode I'm always like what's happening here?! Idk I guess it was just only me who thinks maybe the plot was in a slow pace or something nonetheless I'm definitely hooked. On the other hand, Joy of Life is a lighter and fun to watch drama for me

  42. Yes about the rumors of joy of life leaks I've seen the ending/finale and I am disappointed that is why I change my fav now from joy of life to sword dynasty from IQIYI.

  43. Joy of Life, even though it says to it's a MC with progressive thinking and good… but until now, other than the usual showoff character is coming off as just another hypocrite, all power and brains. makes me wants to takes the side of the enemy, thankfully all the other characters are super cool and very cute at times… great cast and acting…
