The perfect preservation of her body lets the world take a peek of Xin's stunning pulchritude even more than 2,000 years after her death. But who indeed is this woman and how on earth was she able to achieve such a remarkable status in the then male-dominating society that gave her a burial of reputation? Da Han Jin Guo is here to let you understand more about this legendary woman.

In the time rife with intrigue, this paragon of beauty is there to assist Liu Bang and Li Cang in sussing out hidden agendas in the palace, on the battlefield, in the community and in those closet to her. This young woman of intelligence and vitality will toughen herself into the imposing icon of legend: Xin Zhui.

One of the best historical/fictional series
Heroine of the Han Dynasty is by far, one of the best series for a fictional historical series. Even though there were some unhistorical parts in this series, the cinematography is really well-written and thought out. The fighting was all right, but the battle scenes were really nicely shot in a lot of camera angles. A lot of people may think that the costumes are a bit too colourful, but I think it is somewhat accurate as the director was trying to aim at the right accuracy of the costumes. Jiang Qin Qin does a good job as always as she portrays her character well. Every gesture that she makes displays her emotions and deep thoughts. She is so classy! She looks really good at her older and younger stage. Nie Yuan did a good job too, at first he was this innocent boy, and then turned to a hero. The themesong is nicely composed! So warlike, there are a lot of scenes that involves with war and actions. While the ending theme had more of the "sadder" parts of the series. This series is highly recommended if you want to see Jiang Qin Qin as the historical Xin Zhui, and a one of a kind performance!
