Chinese TV series "Princess Agents" is setting online-viewership records at home and abroad.

"Princess Agents" has set a record for YouTube views -- at over 230 million -- making it the most-watched Chinese TV drama internationally, as overseas audiences have been showing a growing interest in the genre in recent years.
