Previously known as Female Prime Minister / 女相
Genre: Period drama, Romance
Broadcast Year: 2013
In order to escape her cruel stepmother, Lu Zhen (Zhao Li Ying) enters the palace to serve as attendant. Her extraordinary skills in making pottery and fabric win the praise of Emperor Gao Yan (Qiao Ren Liang), and he promotes her. At the same time, she also captures the heart of crown prince Gao Zhan (Chen Xiao). However, she can never be with him as different in social status and jealous enemies work against her. She devotes herself to politics and helps Gao Zhan in his work. Though Gao Zhan can not make her his empress, he bestows her with the highest position in the land, the female prime minister.
I find the story of Legend of Lu Zheng very interesting and I like Zhao Li Ying ever since I saw her performance in Cuo Dian Yuan Yang. And gorgeous Chen Xiao, (*drooling sigh*) he is such a hottie! Period dramas always never fail to fascinate me with their striking Chinese costumes and not to mention their breath-taking scenery and architecture!
