Fearless Whispers, a spy thriller starring popular young actor Li Yifeng, is currently the most popular Chinese-language TV series, according to review platform Douban.

Released on November 6 on China Central Television, as well as on online streaming platforms, the show topped Douban's weekly popularity ranking for Chinese-language TV series, according to the latest ranking results.

Set in Shanghai after China's victory in the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1931-45), the TV drama follows the story of a young policeman who enters the workplace with a righteous heart and is fed up with bullying by his colleagues and the injustice around him.

Caught in the political warfare between the underground intelligence network of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on one side and the Kuomintang police on the other, Li joins the revolutionary work led by the CPC.

Fearless Whispers currently boasts a rating of 8.2/10 on Douban, based on more than 40,000 reviews.

It has remained in the top spot of China's daily TV drama online charts for six days, according to film and TV data platform Maoyan.
