  1. Hi! Im new to c-dramas. Could you let me know how why everything seems so diverse? Haha Like i rarely see familiar stars in dramas i watch. Is there like a cluster that separates them? For example, Xu Kaicheng and Li Xian? Thanks if you could enlighten me hihi

    1. Hi there! Welcome to the diverse world of C-dramas. There are a lot of genres like rom-com, wuxia, xianxia, republican era dramas, fantasy, historical, etc. It’s because the market is so big that there is a lot of supply for the demand. A lot of the actors and actresses come from acting/drama academies so it’s very cutthroat.

      Li Xian wasn’t as well known before he did “Go Go Squid”. You can say he became popular overnight because of that drama. Also with COVID-19, the entertainment industry was put on hold for the past few months. So he doesn’t have as much popular works. Same goes for Xu Kaicheng, he got popular for “Well-Intended Love”, which was his first starring role. He’s not as popular domestically as he is overseas.

      Every film/tv project in China has to get approval from the government before they can start filming. After filming is completed, it also has to be reviewed again by the government to make sure it passes all the regulations. For costume dramas, there are usually a lot of episodes, so filming can take 3-5 months long. Most of the time, the actors voices are also dubbed. Then it needs to be scheduled by the streaming platform or tv station to air. That’s why you might not see an actor have multiple works out within a period of time. It’s not uncommon for dramas not to get aired until years later for whatever reason.
