The Legendary Life of Queen Lau

Hi everyone! Wow, can’t believe it’s the summer of 2022 now! Hope everyone is doing okay and getting to enjoy their vacation after 2 years of covid-craziness… Here’s an interesting cdrama that just came out called The Legendary Life of Queen Lau.

Just from watching the trailer alone, it’s a mix of comedy with your typical palace tropes. If it starts out funny, how will the show fare mid-season to the end?

Guess we’ll have to find out!

Fate plays jokes sometimes. A foul-mouthed woman (Liu Jin Feng) from a nearby village ends up marrying a prince (soon-to-be-emperor) and ends up becoming a queen!

As she navigates her way in the inner courts, her husband has his own fair share of troubles with government affairs. What may seem as the most “mismatched” pairing may actually become the most perfect couple.

Can the two work together for the future of the kingdom? Or will the two clash with their distinct personalities?

I’m really curious to see how this show will play out. Especially with how it starts off with comedy as it’s main selling point.

Sometimes, these mixed themed cdramas hook viewers in with a new trope and then it doesn’t really play out too well.

But I may give it a shot. Who knows? It might surprise me.

And guess what? It’s also loosely based off of a web novel. What shows isn’t based off of a web novel nowadays?

Adapted from the web novel “Huang Hou Liu Hei Pang” (皇后刘黑胖) by Ge Yang (戈鞅) => in case people want to see the original novel plotline (no guarantees that it is translated though)

What do you think of the trailer? Will you give this cdrama a try? Leave a comment down below!

I have watched 6 episodes so far and it’s good. Reminds of how much ” handsome siblings ” made me laugh so much. Secondly they chose a good pair of leads and am glad it has less than 40 episodes.

The politics is not the main focus but how will queen Liu and Xuan get along ?

Hey if you watched ” Listening snow tower ” 🤭🤭🤭 Huang Quan is here..

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
