  1. So, is there going to be two different version of Dream of the Red Chamber airing around the same time? One starring Yang Yang andr Ma the other Ma Tianyu?

  2. It don’t know how well-liked it is, but Dream of the Red Mansion is very much talked about.
    Dream of the Red Mansion is big, big, big. All of the Four Classics are very famous, but I think this one has the most scholars devoted upon it.

    Not sure about the Myth, though.

  3. How popular is this period drama in China and outside China? Do young Chinese watch period drama as well? thanks
