On 7 January 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 15 February, 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 29 July, 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]

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

In 2018, Ju starred in the historical drama Legend of Yunxi.[22] She also sung the theme songs for the drama, "The Fallen Flowers Turn into Mud",[23] and "Sigh of Yunxi".[24] The series was a commercial hit and received positive reviews for light-hearted and sweet storyline, leading to increased popularity for Ju.[25] The same year, Ju starred in the romantic comedy drama Mr. Swimmer.[26] Ju also became one of the judges for the music variety show The Chinese Youth.[27]

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.[28][29] 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".[30] The same year, Ju starred as the female lead in period suspense drama Please Give Me a Pair of Wings.[31] Ju was named as one of the most recognizable Chinese actresses in web dramas by the Hong Kong media,[32] and won the Best Actress award at the China Canada Television Festival Award for her performance in Legend of Yunxi.[33] Ju entered the Forbes China Celebrity 100 list for the first time, ranking 94th.[34] Forbes China also listed Ju under their 30 Under 30 Asia 2019 list which consisted of 30 influential people under 30 years old who have had a substantial effect in their fields.[35] In November, Ju released her third EP titled Love Emergency Report.[36]

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.[39]
