If you’ve been following this C-drama, you may be curious to find out when episodes of this one are releasing. Well, wonder no more!

Here is everything you need to know about Road Home’s release, including its release time and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch Road Home?

Road Home is available to stream on Tencent Video, Mango TV, Viki and iQIYI and is set up as full episodes, so there’s no messing about with different parts on YouTube. However, do note that you’ll need a VIP account with iQIYI in order to access the later (and more recently released) episodes with this one.

You can actually check out the series HERE on iQIYI’s official site. Do note that a standard VIP pass is required to watch the more recent episodes, which costs £4.99 a month.

Alternatively, this is also available to watch in some regions on Viki too. Do note that much like iQIYI, you will need a Vikipass Standard account to watch beyond episode 10.

Road Home Episode Release Dates

Road Home is a Chinese drama and as such, the episode release dates are a little different to those released in other Asian regions. We’ll detail that more below but do note that the subtitle team are pretty quick on iQIYI, with English subtitles available from release. 

Expect each episode to be roughly 45 minutes long. Road Home’s finale, episodes 29 and 30, will air on March 26th.

How Many Episodes Will Road Home Have?

Road Home is a 30-episode Chinese drama, which is pretty average as most of these shows have between 35 and 50-episode runs. After dropping 4 episodes at once on Monday 13th March, the remaining episode schedule sees 2 new episodes dropping Monday to Saturday

Two episodes are released at once at 4pm (GMT) / 12am (SGT) / 8am (PT) each day. Expect iQIYI to be first off the mark for dropping these on their website

  1. This was my first venture into Chinese drama after having recently been hooked into Korean drama. I enjoyed this because of the leads’ acting and chemistry. The male lead’s loving gazes and gestures could be used as an example for actors seeking to learn how to portray a lover. He was superb also in conveying the cohesiveness and camaraderie of an elite police SWAT team. I hope I can see more of his work. The female lead was also very good although not quite in the same league as Jing Bo Ran, who if he could replicate this quality of work, might be an international star. The secondary actors, especially the charming little boy, also gave excellent portrayals with their engaging and interesting characters. In short, good story, strong characters, great performances. Now for what might have been improved, based on the viewpoint of an American viewer. First, much too long, perhaps by as much as 3-5 episodes. This would tighten up the pace as well as eliminate scenes that essentially duplicate others. We don’t require quite so many SWAT dangerous scenes, episodes of male camaraderie, or family interactions to get the thrust of these elements. The other element I found distracting or confusing was the use of flashbacks. Several were misplaced in the narrative flow. I consistently wished the background story could have been presented in a time sequence from the beginning of the love story to the end. As it is, the flashbacks often interrupt the tension with information that would have explanatory earlier in the presentation. However, overall I found this to be an engaging introduction to Chinese contemporary drama, and I want to see more. A real plus for me has been learning more about Chinese and Korean culture, customs, beautiful scenery, and delectable looking food. Over and over I am reminded that explorations of different cultures might lead to greater harmony. All humans experience love, misery, danger, evil, and goodness.
