Liu gained popularity after appearing in the popular xianxia drama Chinese Paladin 3 (2009); her role as Long Kui broke her previous typecasting as a “gentle, kind, and understanding maiden” and received positive reviews from critics and fans. The following year, Liu was cast in the drama A Weaver on the Horizon (2010), based on the life story of Huang Daopo. Originally cast in the role of the lead female protagonist, Liu instead chose to portray the princess Zhao Jiayi, as she felt that the character's developments would challenge her acting.
