In Secret of the Three Kingdoms, Liu Ping (Ma Tianyu) is a secret prince who was raised outside the palace with Sima Yi (Han Dongjun). His twin brother Liu Xie, the last emperor of the Han Dynasty, summons him back to help save the country as the ambitious warlord Cao Cao (Tse Kwanho) begins to amass even more power.
He is helped by empress Fu Shou (Wan Qian) and Sima Yi, though the latter eventually decides to serve Cao Pi (Tan Jianci) to further his own ambitions. The 54 episode drama will air 2 episodes every Tuesday to Thursday on Tencent beginning tonight.
