Another TV production that broke records is Legend of Miyue, directed by Zheng Xiaolong, and starring actress Sun Li, the team who gave birth to the mega-hit court drama Legend of Zhen Huan in 2013.

The 81-episode Miyue was already creating buzz even prior to going on air. The first two episodes of a new TV drama attracted a record high 700 million hits on the web in just 24 hours.
