“Dream Knight” the web drama that GOT7 is headlining has received an unprecedented amount of popularity in China.
The first episode was released on January 27 through Chinese video sites Youku and Tudou.

It seems as though the web drama is already a success, it even received a high score of 9.4 out of 10 on Youku’s website.
“Dream Knight” is proving to be popular in both Korea and China; it started gaining attention since it was announced that GOT7 would be a part of it. Despite the fantasy romance genre being a first for the members, they are showing their acting talents naturally and receiving good reviews.
JYP Entertainment’s artists have proven their brand recognition in China and continue to be popular there.
Youku, Tudou Group, and JYP Pictures are joint investors and producers while GOT7, Song Ha Yoon, and MissA‘s Min are the main cast. “Dream Knight” can be watched every Tuesday and Thursday through Naver’s TVcast, China’s Youku, Tudou, and Thailand’s Line TV.
