    This is going to be a sad week for XE and Yuwen Yue #cry

    Thanks for the updates Kap. I have been watching these episodes faithfully everyday. I found that it was addicting. The next episodes will be quite a suspense I think. XE overhead YWY’s grandfather’s remarks and had her heart broken, regain her memory maybe and leave with YX.

    This week will be full of heartbreak. I am just glad I got one more XingYue moment before it all goes up in flames. I watch this religiously.

    Is YWY’s grandfather the guy in black that got his feet injured by Xing’Er? Somehow, I feel like the show is giving us a little piece of everything, like it all connects if you put them together.

      YWY’s grandfather is the man in the wheelchair

      I think another character said his grandfather crippled both his legs for a mere maid during his youth

    i’m falling in love with this XingYue couple. I hope her leaving him does not mean end of interactions :'(

    For me I was clear that the Grandfather would plan something against Xing/er. He was always against the relationship between Xing/er /YY.

    This gonna be a heartbreaking week for YWY-XE 😭 but I also excited at the same time, because I always thought XE will love YWY only later on (after YWY get tricked by YX and then survive). But the drama keeps getting us hint that XE is awkward and shy beside YWY, so her crying (because of what YWY’s grandfather said) is a prove that she already has feeling for YWY before she leave him to go with YX.

    Kappy, is this drama a hit in Mainland? My friend is Beijing, living with her hubby and told me that her in law watched this too. Lols. I hope this drama is a hit and will get many awards.

      The drama is doing pretty good, I read. This past week it reached 5 billion views online, and peaked at 1.48% rating, which made it top the chart the whole week.

      just read that it reached 10 Billion views! wow in just 2 weeks! Congrats everyone! The drama is amazing!

    Chu Qiao delivers some much needed justice! They have watered down her character too much, I was afraid I wouldn’t see the badass girl anymore. RISE, CHU QIAO! YOU HAVE A NAME OF YOUR OWN. Fight for your beliefs! Throw those maid-thinking into the trash, please. 🙂

      Oh I love tonight’s episodes. More movements. Xing Er finally leaves…And Yuwen Xi gets his much belated end by tomorrow. All the meaty content is coming this week. Heartbreak all around though….Yan Xun baby stay strong

      • 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

        Indeed. Jia You Yan Xun!!

    • 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

      *O* I’m on the edge of my seat! I guess the changes weren’t senseless but it /is/ nice to see them revert to the original plot – for a bit, at least. :D:D

  10. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    Ahhhh. Can’t wait for episodes 21 and 22! Episode 19 was interesting (the old man selling weapons is so cute omg!) but episode 20 was a total filler. 🙁 Too many scenes of the Angsting King, Moping Princess, Yearning Sister (Xiao Ba), rebellion, Pervy Uncle, Moping Princess, rebellion, Moping Princess, Moping Princess, Moping Princess and Moping Princess! No Yu Wen Yue in episode 20 at all?! And barely any Chu Qiao? 🙁
    Episode 21 and 22 better make up for it! I need badass Chu Qiao and Yu Wen Yue and Yan Xun!

  11. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    Now that she remembers who she is. And soon she will be able to control the power which is in her.

  12. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    Dang finally the plot is moving along. It was still fun to watch but can’t believe we’re at twenty already, it’s starting to get intense.

    Can’t wait til tomorrow!

  13. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    Episodes 21 22 so badass. I’m so darn happy so many hated characters got their comeuppance. Chu Qiao so badass. Ywy is soooo…misunderstood. And I don’t know why seeing Yan Xun’s trademark smile actually kind of made me sad…for what’s in store for him tomorrow 😭

  14. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    21-22 …. oh poor Yuwen Yue 🙁

  15. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    Yuwen Yue’s micro-smile when he sees she’s not dead! And he was totally buying time for Yan Xun to turn up! Aww bless his lovelorn misunderstood little heart <3
    I swear, this show… one moment we have Chu Qiao kicking ass, then the next moment Yan Xun is riding in in ridiculous slow-mo to save the day. And then we get the super cute Dynamic Duo fight scene – but followed by Chu Qiao and Yan Xun staring at each other as green leaves fall around them (also in slow-mo)??! Hahaha.

    I’m so so happy our girl is finally rising and delivering justice! When she took down Yuwen Xi that disgusting old man and cut off Zhao Xifeng’s fingers I was break dancing in front of the TV in the middle of the night (I live in Australia so PA airs 12-2am here)
    Felt really bad when that maid died for helping Princess Chu’er escape the palace 🙁
    Also confused as to what the connection between YWY and the Liang Princess is and the bird…??

    The Emperor is so paranoid and irritating I can’t believe they gave him that long a** monologue crying on the floor about YX’s father. I went to the bathroom, came back, and he was still moping on the floor LMAO.

    As for our boys, they’re both so precious and I just wanna wrap them both up in blankets and hug them LOL. I felt so betrayed and hurt for YX when I saw him surrounded by his “friends” and in the preview that he’s shown his father’s head + crying in prison. LEAVVEEE HIM ALOONNNEEE!! He deserves so much better… why can’t the Emperor just leave him and his mother be??? Also although I’ve sold my soul to the YWY/CQ ship, I’m really enjoying the YX/CQ interactions, especially when he was all like “You’re my person” and she’s like boy no lmao.

    And YWY, all he wants to do is save his friend but he’s torn between his duty to his household/pressures placed upon him by his grandfather and what he really wants to do. You can see he’s already completely in over his head with our girl, like when they escaped the cave and he rushed over to her (after they were attacked by Liang spies/soldiers) and tried to cover up his obvious concern by scolding her lmao, and when he thinks she’s dead and he rushes over like “WHO LET YOU/SAID YOU COULD DO THIS?” and his relief when he realises it’s not her. My heart hurts bc now he’s all alone and misunderstood :'( He’d have done more to the guy that shot YX/CQ with the ice arrow if he didn’t know it was his grandfather that sent him.

    My main problems are with some of the shots/editing/post-production/CGI that lowers the quality of the drama, but overall, I’m really enjoying PA acting/story/character wise.

    How are you book readers finding it?

  17. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    HAHA I laughed at YX slow motion horse riding, even his first appearance was like that too, so hiliarious! 😀
    ZLY fightings are extremely modernized, I actually wished she use a double bc all I care is really how realistic things will look anyway, it looked like people were dying from minor slices. I’m still catching up with the old princess pearl II with eng sub on YT and XYZ is a bad fighter but bc of her double it really does make her seems like a real good traditional fighter, like somebody you wish you can at least fight like or fly around like her, so when I come back to these modern dramas the fightings aren’t satisfying unless they’re fantasies and I accept magic powers in there.

    I thought that was going to be a glowy scene, when Chu Qiao and YX look at each other while standing up on those green trees!!! Turns out they don’t have much sparks and she’s just more grateful towards him. Don’t know how she feels about YWY too but it seems like it was trust, and then now broken trust. I’m not into neither ships at all (maybe just yet bc YWY shows no emotion at all), but hoping for the pace to keep going fast like this. Just don’t go back to those boring ladies with the viel and guy with the fan, who the hell are they and why are they so boring, and YWY grandfather is even more boring too, even the sisters too. Yeah, my sense is everything is boring except those 3 hurhrurrrr…even Li Qin, she haven’t annoyed me but haven’t been too impressive besides looking cute and having cute personalities, I feel bad I’ve been skipping her a lot although I still feel she needs more scenes so I can skip her.

    The jou you tai scenes are heartbreaking. Shawn is killing it. Even felt the emotions from LiQin’s scene with the cruel king…also like chu qiao-yanxun prison bonding moments..

    Goodness me, they are really dragging out YX’s (non) execution scenes over 4 episodes? They could’ve condensed everything into 1-2 episodes. Anyway I saw some of the previews and 片花 from later episodes, YX will soon be rocking full guyliner =( That’s basically the standard trope for evil mode or 走火路莫 in Wuxia, unfortunately. Pity, I really enjoyed YX’s sunshine disposition so far.

    I can’t explain why but I am not fully on the YWY and XE ship, YWY was too cowardly for my liking, both in terms of realising his feelings for CQ and in terms of advising YX of the eminent danger he was in. YX is also too obssessed with XE in the first 20 eps to the point that his about-turn in the rest of the show won’t make sense, even if he does turn evil. I think Lin Gengxin did a great job so far as YWY with his shiftyeyed portrayal of emotional conflict (compared to bland Li Yifeng it’s like 天渊之别), please LGX… Act in more Wuxia productions as much as possible! Movie or drama both are fine, can’t think of another actor who suits the Wuxia hero stereotype but looks meh in modern setting dramas. He is way ahead current crop of young actors or even HXM and FSF who act pretty.

      *走火入魔 hahaha. Don’t learn the wrong Chinese words x)

    The more I watch the more I like the contrast between this happy bright pallet (for the cloths and the settings) and the abrupt cold and heartlessness of the politics and actions. Somehow I find the cruelty to be more realistic this way. And it made it really hard to watch episode 23 and 24. I like that this week was the end of innocence and I love that you can see how pretty much all characters evolve, it gives them more depth. And I must say I really really don’t like the royal concert Shu, the more I see the more I dislike her.

    I am so happy that I feel like the bonding between CQ and YX feels honest. Sure it may not lead to love, but I believe at the moment that this bond is stronger than the one that she had with YWY. I am not one of those that felt any over whelming love bond between CQ and YWY. For me it was more about CQ finding trust with YWY, which was broken by the grandfather’s words.

    • 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

      In the earlier episodes, I was wondering if that was the intention and it seems like it was.They wanted to contrast the atmosphere of their earlier happier days with the dark turn that the story will take.

  21. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    I’m quite upset that YX is already turning to that point where he was going to transform but his development with CQ was only…does it even seem like she finally open up to him for more than 1 day? She’s always been ignoring and not allowing herself to be effect by him, and when she finally did for a few moment he just transformed right away. I might believe she probably won’t actually fall in love with YX in drama version, but it’s more likely she’ll be an understanding friend. I thought by the time this scene happen, I should be shipping them already, but nothing was ever as lovey dovey as I’ve predicted or imagined, I’ll stay prepare for that finger cutting scene then, high chances love development might be low there as well.

    If the princess dare to jump in and protect/block YX, threat to commit suicide, whatever it is… maybe she could’ve won over him a bit. She’s his enemy and he’s not indebted to her, their relationship = game over.

      the family’s massacre is the beginning of their story yoyo, not the end. yan xun’s trusting nature captures chu qiao who is untrusting of anyone not immediate related to her. yan xun doesn’t immediately change, his change is gradual over the course of 8/10 years while he fights to avenge for his family, mobilizing an army created by efforts of chu qiao.

      they form a bond first and foremost and she spent 10 years with him in which feelings are developed and eventually broken. in the drama version, don’t know how long they will have her spend in yan bei with him. she definitely loves him in the novel, you can’t experience this much for someone, fight this much for someone and not love him….

      we can’t look for love before bonds are fond. which is why i don’t also see love from her for yuwen yue. she trusts him, yes, but not love. shippers jump so fast to love and forget everything else.

      • 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

        Ooh…I was thinking she might have liked his happy-going personally first and then he turned bad, thanks for clarification, too bad she might not really get to taste the real happy-going him much then. I was thinking that way because all the important high lighted clips in trailers and previews are mostly all covered by now already, it gives out the feeling like there will be no more interesting clips coming up. Seems like YX and the princess transformation were left out for us to ponder about.

        • 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

          YY made mistakes, but it would be not honest to blame him only. It was his Grandfather who pushed him. CQ stands between 2 men. She has some affections for YY but in this moments Yan X has the better cards. Who knows what the future brings.

  22. 35 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 3: Episodes 17 – 24

    @A
    I find it also strange 4 episode. But to be honest, I believe that this is the right occasion to start an attack. All noble families are in the palast, the soldiers of Wei are unprepared if an attack is led by the Liang state. The traitor Yuwen Huai is in the palast with his army.
    The Liang state has worked over years so hard. First they took the leader, Luo He of the “Underworld” out of the game, the daughter is missing, put all their spy’s and soldiers in place and with the Red Hill Court they had a secret base near the “Eyes of God”. YY failed helping his “brother” YX and conserning intelligence activities. It was surely not helpful for YY to stay at the sideline and not to contradict his grandfather.
