Qin Hao (Tomb of Sea) costars as Liu Yilong, the emperor of Liu Song and her main love interest.
During the Yuanjia era, powerful aristocrats have usurped the throne and political power, and the country is in a state of chaos. Liu Yilong puts up pretenses as a tyrannical ruler, and waits for the perfect chance to seize power.
Lige’s attempts to assassinate the ‘despotic’ emperor end in failure, and the heroine ends up as a pawn in the power struggle between the Lu family and the emperor. She finds out her true identity as the daughter of the Shen family in the process, and develops romantic affections for Liu Yilong after they go through several trials and tribulations together outside the palace.
As loyal allies of the emperor, the Shen family is later massacred by political opponents, and, as the only surviving heir, Lige is burdened with reviving her clan. She helps Liu Yilong push through political reforms, punishes those conspiring to dethrone Liu Yilong, and helps him regain control of the court.
X-Nine idol Gu Jiacheng and Qi Ji (Queen Dugu) will costar. The 65 episode drama is directed by Li Huizhu (Untouchable Lovers, Princess Weiyoung), and began filming today.
