The King’s Woman led by Dilraba Dilmurat and Zhang Bin Bin

Those who have watched The Legend of Qin will find this story right up your alley because it tells the story of Tian Ming’s parents or at least, his beautiful mother. Adapted from the novel, The Legend of Qin: Li Ji Story (秦时明月之丽姬传), the official English title is The King’s Woman (丽姬传). Our female lead’s beauty is the cause of all troubles and I think they are spot-on in casting Dilraba Dilmurat. But I’m confused at the synopsis, looks like they have made changes…

Side-note: Isn’t it funny that in the remake of She’s Pretty, Dilraba plays an unattractive woman and here, she’s the  most beautiful? Lol…

Stills from Booting Ceremony 12/7:

More on the story (novel): Everyone’s lovable K.O aka Vin Zhang Bin Bin will play Qin Shi Huang (born as Ying Zheng) (WHAT? Where’s her lover Jing Ke?). Major changes. In the novel, our heroine, Gong Sun Li, is the grand-daughter and disciple of military commander Gong Sun Yu. Jing Ke (first disciple) and Sun Li are childhood lovers and were forced to escape when Qin troops attacked. However, Sun Li’s wall-shattering beauty seizes the interest of the Qin Emperor, Ying Zheng (Zhang Bin Bing), and she’s captured and sent to his palace. It’s then that she discovers she’s pregnant with Jing Ke’s child (Tian Ming). Ying Zheng treats him as if he’s his own child. The tragic day arrives when Jing Ke tries to assassinate Ying Zheng and dies trying. Sun Li (known then as Li Ji) also succumbs on the same day, leaving orphan Tian Ming to escape the palace with Han Shen, Jing Ke’s good friend.

Looks like there’s no Jing Ke in the drama synopsis and Sun Li slowly falls in love with Ying Zheng. Sounds like a palace drama….

    Yayyyyy! I eagerly ate up this post! Looking forward to seeing Zhang Bin Bin. I’ve been a fan of his ever since I watched Back in Time: Long Time No see. The OTP looks good! I hope Liu Chang steps it up with his acting! Hmm as far as I know, this is Dilraba and Zhang Bin Bin’s third project together?

      Agreed about Liu Chang. Handsome lad but very raw and stiff. Lol!

      ❤ SFF.

        He was so stiff that in Novaland that I didn’t even care for his character at all and even when Zhang Ruo Yan ended getting the girl…I didn’t feel bad for him like most second leads do.

        So hopefully, he brushes up here.

    Wait, am I missing something? So the whole story talks about how she loves Jing Ke first, gets pregnant with his baby, marries the emperor and has Tian Ming, and the emperor treats him as his own son while all the while Tian Ming’s mom falls for the emperor. Then Jing Ke comes to try and assassinate the emperor, dies trying, and then Li Ji dies on the same day and the story ends??

      No, that’s the novel story line. As stated above, Jing Ke doesn’t exist in the drama (no mention of him at all). So expect a lot of changes with additions of palace fights. I’m confused too going back and forth btw the two. Lol.

    Dilraba and Zhang Bin Bin!!! Just by looking at the photos of them standing beside each other already made me hopped onto the ship! They look good together, the otp feels is oozing just from these photos!
    I didn’t like the The Legend of Qin drama and I don’t know the story of that animation, so I shall just watch the drama as it is! Even more excited if this is really a palace drama!

      I feel the same way. I am psyched by Zhang Bin Bin/Dilraba combo but no so much of LOQ prequel. I’ll feel better about this show if it is just a straight palace drama, and I would totally look forward to see Vin as the young, dashing, ambitious, and slightly villainous Yin Zheng.

    Kappy, Many thanks for another great post!

    I apologize for being annoying. I’m just trying not to learn the wrong C things. There’s no last name Gong 公, only Gongsun 公孙, right? So shouldn’t Dilraba’s character above “Sun Li” be just “Li”? Just like no one refers to Zhuge Liang as Ge Liang? This is not a good example, as no one refers to ZG Liang as just Liang either.

      Lol. No worries, I’m just a learner myself and when it’s time to get technical, I’m the worst person to ask. I think you’re right in this instance but Gong can also be a stand alone last name, as my friend is of this one (Gong Xu Lin). She’s referred in the novel mostly as her concubine title, Li Ji. I called her Sun Li just because I like the two-character names over one. Sorry ~ XD
