During the Yongle period of the Ming Dynasty, Zhu Di, the founder of the Ming Dynasty, moved the capital to Beijing to build a new palace, and sent Chen Gui, the Marquis of Taining, to secretly select skilled craftsmen. Kuai Xiang, the son of the famous craftsman Kuai Fu, built a palace with his father, and found that some of the craftsmen colluded with the officials of the Ministry of Industry in charge of the construction to make profits and oppress the good. Kuaixiang was reluctant to join forces and insisted on collecting evidence even when he was in danger, vowing to bring the black sheep to justice. But the head behind the embezzlement of the construction funds of the project is Zhu Gaojiu, the king of Han who has always been favored by Zhu Di, and even Chen Gui can’t help him. Zhu Gaojiao was angry and hated Kuaixiang for being troubled, and he repeatedly attacked him to prevent Kuaixiang from rising to prominence. With the guidance of his father and the help of Chen Gui and others, Kuaixiang impressed Zhu Di with his talent and obtained the qualification to build Chengtianmen. In the face of the hard-earned golden nanmu, Zhu Gaojiu sent someone to cut it off. Kuaixiang was ordered to design the “Vajra Legs” handed down from time to time. Kuaixiang was not afraid of Zhu Gaojiu’s threat and obstruction, and helped the then emperor’s grandson. Later, Ming Xuanzong Zhu Zhanji exposed the corruption of Zhu Gaojiu and illegal officials. He was punished and ensured the preparation and construction of the Forbidden City
