It's Not Easy Being King - 大王不容易

It's Not Easy Being King - 大王不容易 (大王不容易)

Alternate titles: It's Not Easy Being King, It's Not Easy Being King, 大王不容易 Starring and

Zhang Yi Jie (Memory Lost) and Bai Lu star in a shapeshifting drama that shows being royalty is not all that royal. When a young chef switches bodies with the emperor, the king and the maid need to figure out how to get back into their original shells before their lives get royally messed up forever.

Da Xi (Bai Lu) is a commoner. Her uncommon ability, though, is that she is a really good chef. She doesn’t dream of being the best chef in the dynasty, however. Da Xi’s goal in life is to marry a really, really handsome guy. She finds that guy in Shao Yong (Zhao Yi Qin), a royal guard. In order to be closer to Shao Yong, Da Xi pretends to be a maid and joins the palace.

At the palace, Da Xi meets Emperor Ji Man (Zhang Yi Jie). Handsome but also possessing all the attitude that being the head of an empire will give you, Ji Man is kind of ruthless. He only thinks of acquiring power and has little mercy. One night, he comes across Da Xi. She is trying to escape the palace. The emperor thinks she is an intruder.

Naturally, Ji Man tries to stop Da Xi. In a freak accident, the two switch bodies. Now the emperor and the chef are in trouble. Ji Man has left his sacred position and is stuck in the body of a lowly maid. He is not a man (or woman) for hard labor. And, as much as she is enjoying the service of innumerable guards, managing bureaucracy is not something the naive Da Xi was meant to do.

And more importantly, how will Da Xi now get the love of the hottie Sha Dong if she is trapped in the body of a man?

Now the emperor and the maid have to figure out a solution to get their lives back, if the conspiracies of the palace (and their own bumbling errors) don’t get them first. And just when they think this is their only challenge, a major twist awaits.

As the emperor says in palace circles while getting bathed and fed by servants, it’s not easy being king. Also known as “King is Not Easy,” It’s Not Easy Being King is produced by Yu Zheng (Memory Lost) and directed by Liu Zhen Ming and Ren Hai Yao. The web series’ original broadcast period is from August 30, 2017, streaming new episodes every Wednesday and Thursday.
