First Character Stills for Zhao Li Ying’s Princess Agents

EEEEEKKKKK!! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!! I’m so excited! I know I said I will write a summary for you guys and I will! I’m on vacation this week and I hope to get back into the novel to write a proper summary soon. But first! Let’s take a look at my most anticipated drama for 2017! Yes, beside Huang Xuan’s Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy! Princess Agents (特工皇妃楚乔传), formerly known as The Legend of Chu Qiao, is based on the novel 11 Chu Te Gong Huang Fei (11处特工皇妃) written by Xiao Xiang Dong Er. The production has just released stills of our four main characters in Zhao Li Ying, Shawn Dou, Lin Geng Xin, and Li Qin.

Stills:

Zhao Li Ying, our slave girl turned female general. The still below… kinda breaks my heart a little because of the situation her character and her people are thrown in because they are labeled as slaves. Treated like trash and targets for royal bastards.

Yes, girl. Plan and execute those crazy plans of yours. I’m waiting!

Shawn Dou, the man she loves first, our male lead. Did I say I love his HAIR? AND NOW HIS COSTUMES? HEEEEHEEE. So handsome. I can see him speaking those cheeky lines to our deadpan heroine already. XD

Synopsis from the Drama Synopsis (it is quite different from the novel, and I will get on to those differences later): The story takes place during the chaotic times of Western Wei, where innocent citizens are often kidnapped and turned into slaves. Slave girl, Chu Qiao (Zhao Li Ying) is thrown into a forest along with other slaves and becomes the next hunting target for the rich lords. She’s saved by the Prince of Northern Wei, Yan Xun (Shawn Dou). Afterwards, she’s sold into the house of Zhuge and witnesses the deaths of her siblings. Not accepting her fate, Chu Qiao escapes the dungeon with her younger sister and catches the attention of Zhuge Yue (Lin Geng Xin), who was also in charge of taking the lives of some of her family members (dang…). He takes care of her and trains her in various things while she develops a deep friendship with Yan Xun over the course of 10 years. During the battle with Western Wei, Yan Xun loses his whole family and Chu Qiao is willing to die to save him and sends him back to his court. However, after that incident, Yan Xun grows ambitious and cruel to avenge for the things and the people he lost. He doubts Chu Qiao and takes advantages of her loyalty and love many times before she finally explodes. Disappointed with the man she once loved, Chu Qiao works with Zhuge Yue to bring Yan Xun down and end slavery, becoming a successful military strategist/female general in the people’s hearts.

      Hmm… I like Shawn’s looks more. heheheh. XD

      • 22 thoughts on “First Character Stills for Zhao Li Ying’s Princess Agents

        Hehe me too. I used to think Shawn Dou and Jing Boran look really alike. Huge fan of Shawn tho (largely from his hilarious and sweet personality on Run For Time season 1). Really wish he got the lead role tho. Tbh the first in-character pic of Lin Geng Xin gives me really strong Jiu Ye vibes (biased tho cuz I just finished skimming thru the first half of Da Mo Yao again…still not used to its official drama name)

    Im looking forward to this so much! Girl holding her own in the drama!!! ZLY looks really pretty with that clean plain look, it has a totally different feel and aura from all the other characters she has acted before. Anything with ZLY is love!
    I need her to appear in Mystic Nine already sobs, the trailer for episode 10 is making me laugh already, her character is just so bubbly and cheeky!

    Shawn Dou looks so good in those costumes and I can feel his chemistry with ZLY already! Tbh I actually can’t wait to see him turn bad because that charisma!!!

    • 22 thoughts on “First Character Stills for Zhao Li Ying’s Princess Agents

      Her character, if allowed to remain the same as the novel, will be completely different from her previous roles!

      It will break my heart when Shawn goes bad…. *cries*

    2017 can’t come soon enough. Still waiting for her to show up in Mystic Nine.

    I don’t know why I’m getting so excited for this project right now. We’ll only be able to watch it next year. Sooo far away…

    Kappy, you’re DA BEST! 🙂 There can never be too many ZLY news posts… 😉 I also need more ZLY dramas in my life. Last year at this time I was deep, deep into the rabbit hole and considering I’ve been on a drama diet almost all this time, the withdrawal symptoms have been horrible. :/ Tbh, 老九门 has been a bit lacking in intrigue so far and I’m disappointed to say it is not the addicting drama I hoped it would be.

    Aaanyway, this looks good. I wish it would come sooner. 🙂 Also, what is this trend of elaborate hairstyles on guys?! Can’t help but giggle when I imagine all these badass princes and generals wasting an hour every morning on getting their cornrows done. 😀 Come on, dudes, you have military campaigns to lead and court intrigues to unravel!!! You can be all sort of awesome even without the accessories, just ask Mai Changsu. 🙂

      I know! I’m the best with my shiny armor imprinted with Li Ying’s cartoon character for her Tomboy role!! 😀

      Now that she has appeared, I will have more incentive to check out the episodes. *good thoughts*

      Don’t be fooled by Mei Chang Su!! Leo be spending hours on making his hair perfectly in place in a bun up high too!! Lol.

      • 22 thoughts on “First Character Stills for Zhao Li Ying’s Princess Agents

        yeah, we all need incentives, unfortunately, William and ZLY are good enough for me but I wish the rest of the cast was also exiting. William’s gang is ok (more than ok actually) I like them. The baddies are bland and unappealing. Since we are in the beginning, most of the story is still exposition. I often abuse the ff button. :/
        At least, when ZLY appears, we will get some banter between Will and her. 🙂

        P.S. I remain convinced that Mei Changsu usually did his hair alone. Leo be too busy carrying his capes around and pissing off his other fanboys. 😀

          I need to start watching STAT now that our girl has graced the screen!! Weeee ~~~

          FF button, my best friend during the latter half of Flower.

    ZLY’s looking badass and the gem she is as always, but Li Qin’s looking gorgeous too. I absolutely love Li Qin. Honestly the only terrible modern dramas I ever watch are all hers cuz my bias allows me to think they’re actually ok because of her. If given the roles, I think her acting could really shine. Loooove her! And LiYing too, but she’s like a whole ‘nother level for me.

    • 22 thoughts on “First Character Stills for Zhao Li Ying’s Princess Agents

      Li Qin is definitely beautiful. The stylists for this drama make me happy so far. Can’t wait to see her turn evil too! hehe.

  10. 22 thoughts on “First Character Stills for Zhao Li Ying’s Princess Agents

    ZLY still looks gorgeous with all that dirt on her, lol. And the plot sounds awesome too.

  11. 22 thoughts on “First Character Stills for Zhao Li Ying’s Princess Agents

    I like ZLY but she hasn’t been in any dramas that I’ve liked enough to finish watching haha. Same for Li Qin.

    Wasn’t looking forward to this drama before but these stills have changed my mind. ZLY looks kinda badass :O

      She is badass Tokkita! Just wait for my summary! ^^ I hope you will finish this drama with us then! HEEEE!
