Does China have soap operas? China’s wildly popular soap operas are disappearing. Two of the three most successful Chinese television series in 2018 — “Story of Yanxi Palace” and “Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace” — revolved around Emperor Qianlong, an 18th-century ruler who oversaw expanding territories and a flourishing economy.
