      This isn’t the drama’s budget but the cost for copyrights. Plus the amounts listed above is cost per episode, which still amounts to more than 40 million. Number 9 on the list is “Nirvana in Fire,” that drama costed 300milion yuan for the copyrights, so that’s already 45 million usd.

      “Tribes and Empires” started filming in 2015, so it could have made the list back then in 2014-2015 when the copyrights were bought. A lot of the dramas mentioned above haven’t even aired yet, but they already bought the copyrights.
