The “Story of Yanxi Palace” is a Chinese period drama set in the 18th century during the Qing dynasty, and topped the list for the most-trending TV series worldwide. The South China Morning Post reports that in Hong Kong, people were more curious about the drama than they were about the US-China trade war or Typhoon Mangkhut.
Worldwide, there was a bigger spike in searches for the Chinese series compared to Netflix’s offerings, including Altered Carbon and The Haunting of Hill House.
In addition to being popular in China, the qing dynasty palace drama has been broadcast in more than 70 countries and regions around the world. On YouTube, the final song of "the jubilee strategy" was played by more than 11.25 million people, and many friends in China saw the ending in advance from the copyright purchased from southeast Asian countries.
这部清宫剧除了在国内热播，还陆续在全球 70 多个国家和地区播出。在 YouTube 上，《延禧攻略》的片尾曲的最高播放量超过 1125 万，国内不少朋友提前看到的大结局也是从东南亚国家购买的版权那里流出来的。
