In 2016, Ju made her acting debut in the fantasy drama Novoland: The Castle in the Sky, which started airing in July.[8] She also released a soundtrack for the drama, titled "Xue Fei Shuang".[9] On July 30, during SNH48's third General Election, Ju was ranked first place with over 230,000 votes, the highest ever number of votes received by an SNH48 member.[10] On October 17, Ju released her first solo single "Everyday".[11] On December 10, she won the New Television Actress of the Year Award at the Tencent Video Star Awards for her performance in Novoland: The Castle in the Sky.[12]

On January 7, 2017, she participated in SNH48's third Request Time, of which her song "Don't Touch", performed with Zeng Yanfen and Zhao Yue, came in first, giving her the opportunity to release her second solo single.[13] On February 15, she took on her first leading role in the detective web drama, Detective Samoyeds.[14] The series was a success and broke 10 billion views at the end of its two seasons.[15] In May, Ju was announced to be one of the recipients of the "May 4th Medal", awarded by the Chinese Communist Youth League (CCYL) to outstanding youths who have made remarkable achievements in agriculture, hi-tech research, news coverage, politics and law, army and police.[16] The same month, Ju released her second EP, Yes Or No.[17] During SNH48's fourth General Election held on July 29, Ju came in first with 277781.3 votes, becoming the first SNH48 member to hold the position as the senbatsu center for a consecutive year.[18] In August, she featured in the fantasy drama Xuan-Yuan Sword: Han Cloud, portraying a gentle mute girl.[19] In November, Ju was cast as the female lead in period suspense drama Please Give Me A Pair Of Wings.[20]

On December 15, 2017, it was announced that Ju would depart from SNH48 and continue promotions as a solo artist under Star48. An individual studio and website have been launched to manage her solo career.[21] On December 18, she released a solo single titled Rain.[22]

2018–present: Solo career and rising popularity[edit]

In 2018, Ju starred in the historical drama Legend of Yunxi.[23] She also sung the theme songs for the drama, "The Fallen Flowers Turn into Mud",[24] and "Yunxi Sigh".[25] The series was a commercial hit and received positive reviews for light-hearted and sweet storyline, leading to increased popularity for Ju.[26] The same year, Ju starred in the romantic comedy drama Mr. Swimmer.[27] Ju also became one of the judges for the music variety show The Chinese Youth.[28]

In 2019, Ju starred in the web series adaptation of the Chinese folktale legend Legend of the White Snake, playing the titular role of Bai Suzhen.[29][30] She also sung the soundtracks for the drama, including new rendition of classic songs like "Qian Nian Deng Yi Hui", "Du Qing" and "Qing Cheng Shan Xia Bai Suzhen".[31] Ju was named as one of the most recognizable Chinese actresses in web dramas by the Hong Kong media.[32] The same year, she was cast in the historical romance drama In A Class of Her Own alongside Song Weilong.[33]

Public image[edit]

Ju has been referred to as a "once in 4000 years idol" by Chinese fans since 2014, however, due to a slight mistranslation, she has also been called a "once in 4000 years beauty" by the media, causing her to gain in popularity and criticism.[34]
