A well-known past.

    Because IP dramas themselves have attracted much attention, the current popularity on iQiyi has exceeded 6,500. Judging from audience feedback, there are many positive reviews. The drama calendar is relatively clear, and several cases can be seen. schedule. This show is probably going to be one of the biggest hits coming out.

    The popularity of "Flying Life 2" during the Spring Festival has brought a relatively positive effect to the online drama. Although this drama is the first to take on the story line, due to the change of actors, the sense of inconsistency is not strong. Hu Xianxu made a cameo appearance in the movie, and his acting skills have been recognized by the audience. The overall impression is good.

    In fact, there are certain risks in online dramas that are extended from movie IPs. The audience knows the characters and stories better, so comparison is inevitable, and it is even more difficult to create new ideas. The data on the day of the premiere was not very good, but as it aired, its popularity increased due to word-of-mouth. It currently has more than 6,000 hits on Youku. Audience feedback is also relatively positive, and it is the most worth-watching drama in recent times.

    Stills of "River Rises"

    Another Mango Monsoon Theater drama, "River Rises" is an environmental-themed drama directed by Han Xiaojun and starring Huang Zhizhong, Mei Ting, and Jiang Wu. The drama is adapted from the original novel "Rivers Flow the World" written by Ming Dy. It tells the story of Zheng Hanjiang, a provincial deputy department inspector and Qijiang University professor who has made great achievements in the field of environmental protection after environmental problems such as water pollution were discovered in Qijiang City. He was appointed as the deputy mayor in charge of environmental protection.

    Perhaps the environmental theme is relatively niche. Although there is a sense of suspense and tension in the series, the data after the broadcast was relatively average. It failed to make it into the top ten in the Beacon Network broadcast list. It also failed to make it into the top ten in Kuyun's ratings statistics. The ranking is relatively low. Most discussions on Douban and Weibo mentioned that although they recognized the actors' acting skills, they had few highlights and were not interested in the subject matter. This type of subject matter is inherently niche. If you don't put enough effort into the script, it will be more difficult to win the favor of the audience, especially young audiences.
