The King’s Woman 丽姬传 is a 48-episode Chinese historical drama that is a prequel to the Legend of Qin. It is based on a series of novels by Sayling Wen which revolves around a fictionalized romance between Gong Sun Li, Ying Zheng and Jing Ke that begins during the Warring States Era.
The story places the heroine Gong Sun Li between two powerful figures. Ying Zheng is the Emperor of the Qin Dynasty, a formidable ruler credited for constructing The Great Wall of China yet he is not only revered but also feared for his cunning-nature and ruthlessness. Jing Ke on the other hand is known throughout history as the man who attempted to assassinate Ying Zheng.
Given the heavy influences of history books, the plot sounds considerably more serious compared to Legend of Qin and the characters also more complicated and fleshed out. Instead of her usual candy roles, Dilraba Dilmurat will become Gong Sun Li, a beautiful and intelligent woman who learns to thrive within the palace. Zhang Bin Bin who is forever the second lead takes on the challenge as the leading man this time around as an emperor no less.
Release Date: August 14, 2017 Zhejiang TV and Youku (two episodes every Monday to Wednesday 10 p.m.)

The King's Woman Season 1 Episode 3
WAITING FOR THIS DRAMA
Sooo excited for this! DD and ZBB work so well together and am so excited to see them as the main couple.
I hope it is picked up for subbing.
Yess! i don't know if you watch Pretty Li Hui Zhen but they were in it too, not as the main OTP so it's like a welcome sight to finally see them paired up. There are rumors they will also be together in another drama called Liehuo Ruge.
@ Anne J: I was so ecstatic when I saw they were paired up in this drama and the plot sounds very interesting but from the synopsis and history it looks like it will be a sad ending 🙁
Pretty Li Hui Zhen is where I first saw them together! Hui Zhen and Yi Mu had so much connection and chemistry they should have been the OTP in that drama.
And a potential third project? Yay! One of things I like about Cdrama is that they aren't afraid to pair actors up more than once. I've noticed it's the opposite with Kdramas where the agencies seem to dislike pairings working together again.
cannot agree more.. i loved them together from the get go as their friendship felt so natural and real. I have to admit I didn't get to finish Pretty Li Hui Zhen coz I didn't like the idea that she was gonna end up with the other guy. But will probably pick it up again because what i saw of it was good..
hmm.. i'm still clinging to hope that this one will have a good ending, it's possible:)
Same about Pretty Li Hui Zhen. I ended up skimming the last half and just watched scenes with Yi Mu in them! The other guy was so unlikeable, he and Dilraba had zero chemistry and the actor was so stiff and unbelievable. That was one drama where they should have deviated from the original and had the second lead get the girl.
@ Anne J: I feel like we are in for lots of angst with these characters but I just hope they put that amazing chemistry to use and we get some lovely, sweet moments between Li Ji and ying Zheng. There were some super cute fantaken pictures and videos of them playing about with with their 'son' but i think that was more the actors than the characters.
It's gonna be another sad ending 🙁
Why C-dramas always have sad endings, sniffles. I'm prepared for the angst though. Haha
does someone know if it will be a happy or sad ending?
I'm interested in this question as well. How is the ending based on the novel? Does anyone know?
How many episodes been out so far?
hi, 12 episodes so far:)
every when do they release new episodes?
Tues, wed and thurs on Dramafever
Im in LOVE with this drama and Zhang Bin Bin! Well, at least for his acting and gorgeous looks! Dilraba is beautiful and awesome acting as well! Tho, the crap going on in the Harem, I always skip by that cause it ticks me off! I cant help it lol! 28 more episodes to go, more hair pulling and more cotton balls to throw at the tv! (Since I dont want to break it hahaha)
Super enjoying this! Go emperor you deserve her! 🙂 The true side of life and love. Hope she knows how deep and important you are to her.
One of the most beautiful drama I've even watched. So touching, so beautifully sad. Loving the two main casts, Zhang Bin Bin and Dilraba Dilmurat, best acting, best looking actors. They are both like a gift from heaven. Hope they will have new drama coming up soon.
Very first CDrama i watched. Ever since, I am hooked. Expecting similar dramas to fill my angst. Superb.
I’m addictived to Bin Bin after seeing him in this. He’s so freaking charismatic and have such strong presence for a young and quite new to the scene. He’s going to go far with that full packs talents of his.
Drama wasnt perfect but intriguing indeed. Lots of people hate the ending but I thought it was well fitted. Worth watching for Bin Bin performance alone.
Van Bin Bin At his best ..
