Have you watched Word of Honor, the most popular Chinese costumed drama of the year? Never fear, Netflix has got you covered.

If you don’t know already, Word of Honor is China’s latest hit TV drama and one of the most talked-about shows worldwide. In the midst of the recent Boys’ Love (BL) drama phenomenon, Word of Honor is another successful example of web novel adaptation following The Untamed and Heaven Official’s Blessing.

The show has a score of 8.6 out of 10 with more than 453,000 reviews on Chinese rating site Douban, becoming one of the highest-rated BL dramas on the site. It was originally aired on Chinese streaming site Youku, and its first episode has gained over 9 million views on Youku’s YouTube account.

Not surprisingly, just as Wang Yibo and Xiao Zhan rose to fame after their appearance on The Untamed, the two main characters of Word of Honor, Gong Jun and Zhang Zhehan, have become this year’s most popular TV CP (internet slang for couple) and two of the hottest stars in China.
