1. General and I: 438.6mil yuan (~$63.5 mill)

Fans of Eternal Love were shocked that their beloved drama was not even battling for the top spot. They need to understand that Eternal Love did not get much love during the promotional period. It seems they were trying to keep all the hype low due to the bad press of the novel being a plagiarized book. In addition, the posters were bad and teasers were for the most part uninteresting.

As for General and I, whoever was in charge of doing promotion for this drama is a genius. They manage to outshine Eternal Love in every aspect at the early stage of production. Hence, advertisers were interested, which is why the yet-to-be released drama Rush to the Dead of Summer has already landed on the No.2 position. It also helped that General and I landed on Hunan Satellite TV, China’s top TV station.

  1. Way to go General and I PR team!! I was surprised to that 10 miles of peach blossom didn’t take first place due to the hype and success they had over General and I. Even though I am biased and will always love G & I over 10 Miles hehe. Regardless they both did well!
