“It’s Not Easy Being King” 《大王不容易》- (aka “King Is Not Easy”) – is an amusing Chinese series about a king who switches bodies with a palace maid and the hijinks that ensue. It’s a short and sweet, twenty episode series that makes for the perfect weekend binge session. These are the first series lead roles for both Zhang Yi Jie and Bai Lu, who make a good comedic pair both in the main story, as well as in a series of short skits at the end of each episode where they play a modern day version of their characters.
Sorry for the site downtime guys, I’m gonna expect more sudden downtime until I can get this sorted out. On the one hand, I don’t feel like AVV has grown, but on the other hand, resource is being eaten like hotcakes. Building a community is hard, building an active community is even harder.
I swear Yu Zheng must have a secret dungeon under Hengdian studio or something, where he secretly trains new faces and film dramas in the dark. This is another one of his productions! The English title could be translated to Not Easy to Be King or Da Wang Bu Rong Yi (大王不容易). Our heroine is an aspiring gluttonous chef, who loves pretty boys (HAHA) while our hero is an arrogant King with far-reaching ambitions for more power. Our second male lead is a royal guard for the king, who is desired by our female lead. OMGAH. The hijinks when the chef and the king swap role during a freak accident!
