Official trailer is out and it’s angsty alright. The story is the prequel to The Legend of Qin, depicting the lives of Tian Ming’s mother and her romance with Qin Shi Huang and Jing Ke. Dilraba Dilmurat takes on the lead role as a carefree woman turned dark after being taken in by the King, played by Zhang Bin Bin. After this and The Flame’s Daughter, let’s give these two actors a break from each other. Lol.
Synopsis of the Novel: Everyone’s lovable K.O aka Vin Zhang Bin Bin will play Qin Shi Huang (born as Ying Zheng). In the novel, our heroine, Gong Sun Li (Dilraba Dilmurat), is the grand-daughter and disciple of military commander Gong Sun Yu. Jing Ke (first disciple, played by Liu Chang) 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. [Credit: Kappy]
