Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

I’m in the minority, I do not want a second season, with or without the original cast. After the hellish world the director and writer put me through with 60+ episodes, why would I want them to do it again? They will possibly add more unnecessary plot lines to make it another 60+ production, with Chu Qiao fainting every episode, she might have amnesia again in season 2. Lol. Filming up to the ice lake arc is to me sufficient, it’s a defining moment where Chu Qiao knows about Yue’s feelings, the rest of the chapters…. more battles and Yan Xun’s cruelty. I don’t need those, either!

Anyway, this will be a tough week to watch as everything descends into madness. Hold on to your seat!

    Tomorrow’s Preview. Wedding + Rebellion. Yan Xun’s scream gave me chills.

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Shawn is really killing it! I love the gradual changes of his expression from episode to episode. In the wedding scene, it looks like they’ve started adding shade to his eyes :D. Can’t wait until he turns completely dark and his make-up and styling get more tribal exotic (cue: the earrings).

      I might be in the minority, but despite the constant OTP pushing and those silly CQ getting klutzy around YWY, I can’t see she gets affected by YWY necessarily because of love, but mostly because she still sees him as her former mentor and master. Believe it or not, even when a slave is set free, they often still feel inferior to their former masters. Especially when they are treated kindly or justly before. I’m not saying she doesn’t have any romantic feeling at all, because she perhaps does, but it’s not head-over-heels — let’s just say a crush. The seeds are there, but not developed yet. So I think this is pretty much in line with the novel IIRC, that she’s not sure when her love to YWY starts. Later on, when she becomes utterly disappointed by Yan Xun and she and YWY share a lot more in common, the seeds grow.

      Now, with Yan Xun, there’s a strong bond between them. The way the show portrays it make me believe that they both love each other, although not a fiery feeling from her side (if you know what I mean). Rather, it’s the slow-burning love that comes from being close friends for long, going through a lot of things together, trusting each other. You care a lot about the other and want what’s best for them. While Yan Xun clearly wants to take it to the next step, he also respects her too much that he doesn’t make any move that might ruin their friendship/relationship. Unfortunately, it looks like he takes her love/affection for granted; it never occurs to him that Chu Qiao will leave him one day — well, she does eventually. I actually love it, I hate it when female characters are portrayed as doormats, accepting anything in the name of love (or stupidly sacrifice).

      Like others here, I’m not too excited about the rumored second season. I never bothered looking at Chusen season 2. I’ve skipped some of PA’s latest episodes (just catch up here!) and I don’t feel like missing anything… though I may start watching episodes in a whole after the Red Wedding Rebellion, in the hope that the pace gets better.

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Yup amazing transformation=great acting..i can hardly recall his sunshiny face

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          Agree his subtle facial expressions are really hitting it spot on for YX’s transformation. I honestly can’t imagine anyone but Shawn acting as YX.

  2. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    I am excited for tomorrow eps! I would only watch it if the original cast return. I really like that team! I hope they can improve on direction and story telling for the sequel if they decide on it. Perhaps i am being optimistic maybe part 2 will outshine part one. Lota of money to be made i dont see why not with the actors and companies coming together they call all be swimming in money. It is a small possibility. As much as i am enjoying the show. I do wish they speed up some part and slow down other parts . This week looks exciting. I am ready to watch yx take his revenge! Epsiode 25 shows their character changing. The following episode may be the complete transformation for all. 😍

  3. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Then I am in the minority too because I don’t want a second season of PA. I really don’t enjoy season 2 because only a few can top season 1. BUT! I would LOVE it if the same cast can be in another production and preferably a different production team lol. The cast have soooo much chemistry together and they seem to play along quite well too!

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Breeze, are you the same person who makes mvs on youtube? I feel like I have stumbled on your name before. LOL.

      But yes, I think they need to reunite, maybe not altogether since that would mean someone not getting the girl. XD

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Lol…I did make some MVs on Utube awhile back before I got too busy with work. I did one for ZLY for Boss&Me since that is one of my favorite drama. I am really tempted to do one for CQ+YX or a solo one about YX but I am soooo rusty from it lol

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        I’m with Kappy. I don’t want a second season regardless of cast. If not for Kappy and AVV team recaps, I may have dropped this already. It’s a 99% probability that this PA story will not end at the end of this month’s PA broadcast?

        Wow Kappy. You have really great memory. Have you considered joining the Eye of God? You’ll be invaluable there! Trouble is you prefer Yan Xun to YWY. Will YX set up his own CIA for you to join?

        I’m wondering if Croton will make any period drama that I could watch. The last thing I liked from them was Love020.

        Which production company is making a new pseudo-Love020 drama with Angelababy? Is that company any good? I forgot the name of that upcoming drama. I just remember the director was An Jian, who did a decent job directing Decoded. (Plot detail was meh there.)

  4. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    What? The production team is going to make a season 2? Didn’t they film the whole novel for the drama already?
    No please no for season 2… This drama is becoming another Chusen nightmare!!! I honestly can’t bear another season of awful directing, set and plotline anymore. As much as I love ZLY and her ship with Shawn, season 1 is more than enough!!!

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Just rumors, Peach! We can breathe. No matter what, I ain’t touching it!

  5. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    They made Yan Xun much more cruel much more faster….that’s probably a good thing because the story will progress faster.
    But I think Xiao Che’s story will be very little….I hope we spend some time exploring his arc too…

  6. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Anesthesia or amnesia?

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      LOL. Mixing work with drama. XD

  7. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    I think the book has enough content for 60 episodes, but the production stretched the plot way too much. I mean, at this point YX should have rebelled and returned to Yan Bei already, but they are still freaking stuck in the capital.

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Agreed. All the silly maid fighting and maid kidnapping in the beginning should have been cut/shortened, not extended. Sigh.

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        I really don’t understand the rationale behind only filming 1/2 of the content (if what ZLY said in the interview is interpreted as such). I thought at first she meant that they just got rid of the less important scenes and the childhood scenes. That’s why I was surprised that the pace was so slow at the start. If they are planning a sequel instead then this must mean that they didn’t finish filming the entire novel, which is just a weird decision. I mean, are they going to stop at where YWY “died”? I’m waiting for the moment where she breaks away from YX! *sigh* I must say that I’m super disappointed by PA. Not the G&I level of disappointment but close.

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          I wonder if this is partly because the production just got greedy and wanted to see if all the money is gonna come in from having a star studded main cast for season 1. Then if all goes well they can do a season 2 and work in more cash. I mean Nirvana in fire was three novels long and they still managed to create a great drama under 60 episodes. Quality over quantity seems to be a issue in China these days.

  8. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    OMG so season II is confirmed? They seemed to have poured so much money, time, and effort into this but it didn’t turn out that great, so I don’t really want a season II either. Of course it’s always better to see the old casts continuing the next season, but if it’s bad directing again then it will just be a waste of the actor’s youth and talents.
    This show is so the most consistent show I’ve ever seen, the very first two parts, they are watchable, then the next two parts, full of craps (not a single thing happened at all), then the next two parts are good again then the next two ones are dumb, same sequence over and over. It never fails.

  9. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Gotta say, “Chu Qi” looks the prettiest. Lol. Usually I have more to say, but honestly everyone’s said what I feel. I’m mostly enjoying it and the actors/actresses are really making it enjoyable, but honestly it’s unexplainable really why I like it so much cuz individually so many components of this production is kind of shit. It just really boggles my mind how bad quality the production seems since the BTS scenes look really decent and like the sets and all look like everything should be high quality. I actually had pretty low hopes for this until the trailer. And then the trailer was so utterly fantastic it hyped me up like 500% and I got super excited…and then this happened. I still find it really entertaining and addicting but it’s really…not great at all objectively speaking. The most high quality thing I can look forward to at this pt is only Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy. Go team.

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Juli, I’m surprised you’re not watching Advisors’ Alliance, because frankly it’s a much, much better production than PA. (And you LOVED Nirvana, remember? This has the same vibe). You’re right, PA has the addicting factor, which is why I’m still watching it despite wanting to punch something near me at me for the logic being thrown out of the window, LOL. Thankfully there are still AA and Ode of Gallantry to balance things out for me :D.

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        I’ve only watched the very beginning of AA. That part, the trailer, and the start & ending credits are really well done. So is the use of green screen, cinematography and music. A lot better than PA. I hear some complaints about the plot of the later episodes.

        PA has a lot of Croton period drama signatures. I find them sloppy when they shoot with green screen. The humans don’t blend with the background when they use green screen. This started with episode 1 already when the men were hunting. It makes me think Croton is really rushed to make loads of money. Their final product that gets on broadcast doesn’t look like a finished product. AA doesn’t give you that impression. PA leaves me feeling empty. It lacks soul to me. A lot of vibrant visuals. Beautiful girls kicking @55, slashing swords. Some like Chu Qiao are accompanied by cute, loyal guys by their side. Croton creates flashy powerful character on the exterior, but they feel hollow to me. I don’t like their dubbing work either. I haven’t watched AA carefully, but I think their dubbing is also better there. Some of the PA dubbing is a pain to watch. I don’t like YWY’s dubber. Sometimes it sounds like mumbles. (Plus it doesn’t fit LGX’s movements either.) I think he’s Mark Zhao’s dubber in 3l3w. Didn’t like his dubbing there either.

        I’m afraid to finish PA. I keep getting bothered by some things. I don’t want to end up complaining too much about PA here. I’m watching it with BFF, so I can’t use my FF button for when I’m watching it alone. I feel bad complaining about the emperor actor that Maymay likes. 🙂
        PA’s plot drives me up the wall.

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          Oh, I find YWY’s dubber too breathy when he speaks. But I guess he’s considered good in the dubbing industry

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          Lol no worries. All personal preferences. I just find it odd that eng sub viewers are complaining about him while cnetizens are raving about the side characters acting. Most of them are 老戏骨。。。”old bones” that feature in many shows but never prominent.

          Anyhow, opinions always differ so no problem. I tend to overlook flaws when I like a drama so I’m not a very subjective viewer. I don’t watch too many serious dramas that usually have those great production because I just don’t like those stories..Maybe because I know those stories in different mediums e.g.movies so they don’t really grab my interest. I like different stories..or different (altered even) versions of real historical figures

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          You are very kind and sweet, Maymay.

          If there’s any consolation, I like the old actor who is Wei Shuyou’s dad or uncle. lols. (I think he’s concubine Wei’s brother. I am still around ep 27 and I watch other dramas, so I don’t remember/know some PA details yet) I also like watching Shawn Dou in PA. I’m neutral on Liying. I liked her better in the past.

          I think Croton may cater to the idol fans as their bread and butter, so their camera work has a different style. I remember it looked weird to me when the PA Wei Emperor was speaking to Duke Dingwei’s head box and the camera was slanting and spinning around.

          I’m also watching First Half of My Life where the cinematography is very “stable and calm” there. Music compositions there also sound as if they are all recorded from real instruments. Doesn’t sound digitized or computerized. Maybe they did a cleaner job digitizing the music there. 🙂

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          Maymay, I have to agree with you. I tend to overlook a lot of the flaws as long as I like the story though there have been some awkward timeline jumps that have periodically annoyed me (first YWY is returning from the border, now he’s suddenly at the mausoleum for no apparent reason…).

          I’m probably one of the few that loves the side characters. I’m a fan of Ju Laiti (he played Wei Shuyou) and thought this role was his best yet. Been loving the attention he’s been getting from it. Definitely a lot more than from Ice Fantasy. And I love that shopkeeper and hope he shows up again.

          Production value wise the C-dramas still have a ways to go to catch up to Korea, but I definitely prefer these over K-drama any day.

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          I have only watched 24 eps of K dramas myself. I think C drama producers are not lacking technical skills. They just focus on non-technical aspects. There are a good number of non-idol dramas that have good to near-great production values. Some production companies, directors, producers just rush the products too much to save on costs. Make quick bucks. There are dramas that blend green screen cinematography, music composition, sound mixing, editing well. There are many great actors available. Many non-idol dramas don’t have dubbing problems. There may be some C problems like communicating with Mandarin and Cantonese. Good scripts are sometimes lacking. i don’t think it’s bc they don’t know how to handle the dubbing etc well.They’d just rather send their product to broadcast quickly instead of really cleaning it up.

          C dramas with the most technical problems tend to be the ones in the youth-themed or highly commercial period dramas. The story space is too narrow.
          Legend of Dragon Pearl actually had ok production values. It’s just the plot has been done idk how many times already. Too many episodes.

  10. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Me too! Very excited for next episodes . Can’t wait for yx’s revenge but then again, am feeling very sad fir princess.

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Poor princess chun er..she chose yx as always over everything she has but unfortunately for her, she is unwanted..but i dont blame yx cause you cannot force love

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        I just couldnt chun er and song er are that stupid and naive to actually think their father will keep his word to pardon yx..its not enough that he killed his family due to jealousy and paranoia, he wants to betray yx on his daughter’s wedding too..cq was right in telling ywy that this emperor just cannot be

  11. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Wish I had found this site sooner. Nice to see other fans of the show and read all the comments.

    Aw, I definitely don’t want a season 2 either. I’ve never become as obsessed about a drama as I have with this one, but don’t think I could take another season. Though I’m sure after this one is over I’ll be wanting more. But right I’m looking forward to the action to come though I think they’ve set it up well for what I think is going to end Chu Qiao and Yan Xun’s relationship. I’m also looking forward to seeing Chun’er go from whiny to bitchy.

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Haha yeah whiny to bitchy would be puuurfect but that girl sure can act

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Today saw the previews for tomorrow. I knew the book was dark, but ouch. Now I’m hoping Chun’er ends up taking out Yan Xun and ends up with the head of the Xiuli Army. Usually I have to wait for the finale of a C-drama to get all mad and depressed, but looks like I’ll be getting a dose of that early. (Hope that means a happy ending…)

  12. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    No to Part 2. That’s just a disaster in the making. Look at Chusen 3.

    I’m all caught up, and it’s not that bad. Probably because I didn’t have a lot of expectation and I’ve watched worst dramas (Demon Girls, etc.). Haha

  13. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Does someone know what happend to the little spy/helper guy from yan xun that cute boy did he die?

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      I remember him too! Very cute boy but once YX was captured he disappeared 🙁 i remember his last scene is when he saved CQ sister and said he will go rescue YX and we never see him again…poor boy…hope he is alive…

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Maybe he’s in yanbei by now waiting..i dont mind the obvious fake sets because the story and acting are too good but no to season 2 cause sequels always always always flop

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          And where did the sisters go? They bring all these characters on and suddenly can’t make room for all of them in the story. Still trying to figure out what’s up with the sudden intro of this other concubine.

          The sets are rather impressive – well the outdoor ones anyway. They filmed most of this at Hengdian and I went there back in May so it’s been funny to watch scenes at places I was walking through not too long ago. But it is rather obvious when it’s a soundstage set. C-dramas definitely have a ways to go to match the production value of K-dramas, but I like the Chinese shows better anyway.

  14. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Idk, I actually liked the last part of the novel… 🙁 The ending scene between YX and CQ, in particular. But oh well. I’m with LGX on this – without Liying, I won’t be here for S2.

    Just wanted to say!!: Deng Lun is perfect as Xiao Ce :DD He does lazy-rakish so well.

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Hi…can you tell me how it ends?? Does Xinger and YWY married?

  15. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    I am so proud of cq for coming back for xiuli army, no wonder the guys become loyalists to her..at this point i understand yx’ decision though because he must get to yanbei at all cost..everything will be for nothing if he dies..thank god cq has the guts to follow her heart and come back for them even without yx’ approval

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      If only Yan Xun trusted them this one time!!

      The now Yan Xun does not tolerate traitors and since the beauty troops opened the gate to the two cities 3 years ago that led to many deaths, he wanted the troops to be punished. T___T

  16. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Watched the latest episode and I think the cracks between Chu Qiao and Yan Xun are forming already… The death of the innocent people, him leaving Xiu Li Army to guard the gate till death and the preview for the next episode about Chun Er being rape and apparently ordered by Yan Xun.
    Quite sad because I haven’t had enough of Yan Xun and Chu Qiao ship, and Yu Wen Yue is becoming more and more unlikeable with the way he handles his relationship with Yan Xun and Chu Qiao. Does he even care so much about loyalty to his country? In previous episodes it didn’t seem that way so I can’t understand why he is acting this way now? Isn’t it a bit too late to be loyal lol…
    And as for Yan Xun, I pray the scriptwriters didn’t write that he is the one who ordered the rape on Chun Er, I honestly don’t believe he would do that! But the misunderstanding is enough to make Chu Qiao feel that Yan Xun has changed. So frustrating omg, my ship is no longer sailing sobs!

    In the novel did Yan Xun really order the rape? Someone enlighten me please!

    All the youtube comments about the hate on Yan Xun for making use of Chun Er is making me so sad for our boy! Poor thing being hated on when he is merely seeking revenge for the death of his family.

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      In the novel, Yan Xun didn’t order the rape. He asked for she and her brother to be sent back, but the official he asked to handle the matter delegated it to a general(?) whose soldiers had massive issues with the royal family because their family members were raped and tortured in the war and they did the same to Chun Er (iirc). This is all from memory so I’m not super sure. It’s possible that the official may be the one with the issues himself and he knew the outcomes of his actions. I can’t recall really. The book did state that it’s partly Yan Xun’s fault and fate that things turned out as such, and it was one of the many cracks in their relationship.

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Hi, where did you find the book, is it in English?
        Please let me know

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      YAN XUN DID NOT ORDER THE RAPE. If they change this in the drama, I’m gonna be so pissed.

      He didn’t order the rape! all the comments. His soldiers angered by what Wei King did to their people decided to do it without permission. The preview makes it seem like Yan Xun ordered it, but he didn’t (an unfair blame!). Yuan Chun insisted on coming along so Yan Xun stops her and tells his men to bring the princess back….but the men did it out of spite b/c of what the Wei King and his soldiers did to their families (torture/rape/death).

      yue talking big about his country right now….. *rolls eyes*

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Thank God! I am in the other forum reading and ppl are saying how YX ordered it and I was sooo upset because even if YX becomes evil and cruel, I can’t see him to that extent… I am currently holding off episodes to have something to watch during the wkend lol…Now what you said make sense… hopefully, the are just playing with the preview and not change the plot or else I don’t know what I am going to do 🙁 YX is the main motivation for me in this drama…i can live with that he unintentional cause the tragedy of CE but not ordered it that will be too cruel. Even if he killed them I am fine because to cut off any possibility of future revenge on their part but to do that is inhuman and absolute cruelty because there is NO REASON to inflect such horror to a girl and I can’t see YX as that person. Cruel by killing innocent to achieve his goal = Yes
        Cruel by hurting a girl like that = No!

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Thanks for enlightening me guys haha! I am glad he didn’t order it! I think the scriptwriters would not change it to the point where Yan Xun actually ordered it but only make it seem like he was the one who did. Which just means misunderstandings and so on and so forth………..

        I don’t wanna see my boy being all alone in his throne sobs! Scriptwriters save my ship!

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          I love yx sooo much i would follow him too hahaha..chuner and songer probably thought he ordered it..but i still cant believe those two are that stupid..ywy is loyal to the country, not really the emperor..he wants yx to escape without war which is impossible

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          Unfortunately, I think we are on a sinking ship…lol…oh well, we will just have to hang on to each other and go down together lol

  17. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    The prince of liang is more efficient and effective in helping yx and cq escape by takig prince xiang to escort him back to liang..how funny is it that both ywy and yx in trying to protect cq on the wedding day are both at odds in doing it:yx wants cq gone in advance b4 wedding while ywy arranged for cq to be at the palace with him on same day hahaha

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      I thought YX wanted her to leave early because he knew that if CQ saw everything he intended to do, she would not be happy. And he just used concern for her safety as a pretext. He’s obviously kept a lot of the plan away from her so he must know she wouldn’t go for it if she knew all of it.

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        It’s a little of both I would say. He values her safety – true. He knows she would disapprove of his actions – also true.

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          No, yx doesnt want her safety concern to distract him..cq understands the consequences of what they will do, she’s not naive, although sparing innocent civilians is a must if it can be helped

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Yan Xun cares about Chu Qiao deeply – he even warns Zhong Yu not to use Chu Qiao or he won’t spare her. He wants her to be safe AND not see what he’s about to do to Chang’An.

        Not like Chu Qiao didn’t hear his oath in prison. He wanted to soak Chang’An in blood.

      I watched this episode twice and each time it gives me goosebumps and made me emotional. When the soldiers found out that they were trapped inside with the enemies left to die….and have CQ came in bringing them hope and yelled “我要帶你們回家……” I was like WOW. I am so totally hooked on this right now. And of course I am totally hooked on 72 floors as well 🙂

    Song er and chun er are sooo irritatingly stupid..both are brought up too protected in the palace unlike their brother prince xiang that they blame all misfortune that happens to them on yx instead of themselves and family..just like concubine lan blaming it all on cq..since ywh is dead, she needs some1 to hate on all their stupidness..everything is cq and yx’ fault now..cant wait for bad ass yx getting his yanbei birthright..so far right now, everything yx does is still a must..

      I loved how Yan Xun introduced himself to the tribe leaders. Love him as a bad ass!

    Can I just say I am at least very very happy that so far all my favourite scenes have made it into live action….😊
    Jiu you tai…yan xun rebellion….I want to bring you all home…And now the yue xing “bed scene”…now there are just 2 more I really really look forward to….

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Haha yes Maymay, that scene ZLY did a decent acting on it for sure but I hate the directing on it though, when the door opened with golden lights and smokes, we all knew what was going to happen next… an overly done slow motion entrance… it feels that they tried to hard and if not bc ZLY did a good acting on it then it would have turned out corny, especially on top of that, all the people who looked exhausted + injured (right on the heart) we thought would be dying just pop up standing up again. But the actions were at least good enough on that scene.

      This drama very lacks the feel for friendships or any sort of relationships. The prince and princess were annoying but they are still baby eggs you wouldn’t bear to see them fall down and be killed, the princess’s crying scenes were especially most darn annoying and her dubber’s voice finally annoyed me. For CQ, even though CQ is a “CQ,” I expect that anybody on earth who really sees others as friend then they will naturally be much more upset and angrier at how their friends were treated (terrible scene where helpless prince seems knocked out trying save his sister from rape), CQ was very considerate about it, but still, she’s not stranger to the prince, I expect to see more emotions even if they’re over reacted, I would lose my mind over such things and blame people who are not even blamable or cannot be blamed. CQ was too calm and also too lenient about what happened, although she does feel very bad and did the right thing. If she’s not going to kill all the nasty soldiers, at least kick and torture them hard like dirt. Show me that scene again when you punch YWH perverted grandpa. It just made me feel that CQ aloofness to people is far beyond greater than great, nobody is really all that close to her at all, really good friends are only friends, and friends are only acquaintances, so acquaintances are almost nothing.
      YX got injured so I can’t decide if he’s much worse, and he pretty much cut the arm out of self defense and be ready to kill enemies. To CQ, I just think CQ should have had more good mixtures of emotions in life rather than only having compassion alone for people, there isn’t anything intriguing about the tension of her relationships be it friendship or romance.

        Lol Yoyo, At this point, the fact that they did a decent job on my favourite scenes is enough for me to celebrate. For all the director’s faults, only one continue to irk me…the blurring of the background (imo they are using it as a mean to camouflage the scenes they did plaster CQ on the green screen). I can tolerate the director’s other whims. Everyone saw the trailer or read the book, I don’t believe no one saw that coming anyway – so the fact that it was predictable wasn’t a problem for me.

        Cnetizens are very very impressed with Li Qin’s crying scenes so I’m surprised you didn’t like it. They even felt her voice acting is better than her dubbers.

        No matter how they change her background story, Chu Qiao’s personality can only be explained by the fact that she is a special agent who time traveled to the past. As an agent, she has no qualms on killing when it is necessary and understands too well the consequences of war – she is pretty jaded (a very common comment in the novel by people who have met her- she has eyes that hold pain beyond her years). She has a strong sense of compassion and hates owing anyone favors. So she doesn’t have a lot of extreme emotions. Especially since she was on the run, she continuously soldier on with many responsibilities on her shoulder. There are many people depending on her and she does not want to let anyone down.

        Actually, the last third of the book is when she is disillusioned – she breaks down and all. I know it is necessary because she is at the end of day just a girl forced into so many responsibilities to so many people. Li Che always advise her to live for herself – because thus far she has lived her life always for someone else.

        I thought she killed one or two in the cave…And she ordered the rest decapitated. I don’t see how that is calm. She had them killed even though they gave their reasons…And even though she knew that these are Yan Sun’s men.

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          Oh actually I didn’t know that happen, my fault to judge while I probably used skip button way too much. It was because she did have the very calm face the entire time that was why I thought she just let the matter go based on that. A lot of times she do the right things but yes, she doesn’t get extreme emotions. It’s hard to see someone that robotic, but thanks for the explanation, the time traveling theme explains a lot, when you’re a modern person with so much knowledge and you also know you’re just a passer by then it is realistic why CQ is the way she is. It would be exciting if she does really break down later on! I know, it’s cruel to see her like that, but that’s how it will show she’s also human and not super human. I’m guessing she’ll break down for YX. Wish they will still get a bit more chemistry before that happen though, they’ve been too polite with each other like very good friends only. I’m so surprised by the bed scene preview, it seems like she isn’t mad over it (or was quite willing?), looks very very arguable that she likes YWY all along (and probably only him the whole time). So, hopefully the heart breaking scene will stir us some good emotions if YX and CQ can prove their relationship stronger. Otherwise, it might not be the romantic heart break I’m imagining, but maybe feelings of betrayal from trusted friend…

          Really? All the parts when the princess was asking her father not to let her marry YX anymore, and then she was dragged out, and then she cried outside asking YX to stop everything he’s doing, all those scenes I couldn’t stand the princess crying at all. Maybe just me.

          @yoyo, I think you just don’t like the character lol…that’s why it annoys you. I don’t really like Chun Er too….but her plight is pretty sad. Li Qin captured the whole scene in one long sequence…I think that’s why people are impressed.

          The bed scene is already much toned down lmao. In the book, it was the moment that finally alerted me that I’m on the blardy wrong ship LOL. I literally did a double take and went to research more on who is the male lead.

          She broke down because of YX and YWY……

        • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

          @yoyo, the bed scene, the word “bed” is put in quotation because nothing really happens…. they were just fighting on the bed so it’s called a “bed” scene. LOL.

  23. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Yuwen Huai died so early in the drama, I am not happy. I want him to be tortured for all that he did!! (He died much later in the book.)

    They kept Yuwen Yue and Chu Qiao’s “bed” scene but also cut out Yan Xun’s peck on the lips with Chu Qiao…. Why am I not surprised anymore?!

    We only have 16ish episodes left and still no romantic scenes between Yue and Chu Qiao (meaning from both sides, not single-handedly from Yue all the freakin times), I don’t know what to do. These scenes came so late for me to feel anything anymore. I’m basically numbed from all the actions.

  24. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Wow, yx really doesnt have a forgiving bone in his body..poor xiuli army, good thing cq is there for them..every1 knows she’s yx’ only weakness..kudos to ywy finally telling him grandpa to fuck off his life

  25. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

  26. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    Damn cq taking so long to get to yanbei!!by the time she gets there, it will be too late to for yx

  27. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    do any of you know if a second season of Princess Agents is confirmed? if it is will it be the same cast members?

    • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

      Nothing has been fully confirmed for season 2. I kinda feel like we were all duped to be honest. It’s like later on through the show do most of us realize the whole novel wasn’t adapted and only half is done. Even ZLY said she was disappointed she couldn’t act out the whole novel. It would be amazing if all the original cast could return for Season 2, but its hard to say…

    I m a follower of this discussion thread. Truly speaking it’s a genuine thread, where ppl r really taking all points to together and speaking not just lamely blaming yan xun. I saw the recent episodes I m hell irritated with the brother sister duo of yuan. Especially chun’er .she makes me cringe. I felt sorry for her a moment but later she made me regret my pity. She backstabbed cq who helped her n her brother. She is just a cringworthy. No wonder, y yan xun didn’t like her. She just blames everything on cq. Who told her to get out of her little world n follow yan xun. When yan xun needed her,she couldn’t do anything. Just was irritating him.yan xun rightly pointed that they bite the hand that feed them. I loved the way yan xun is getting back his yanbie n I respect his love for cq. I m disappointed by the way he behaved with xiuli army. But they betrayed him, so he suffers his own hatred towards them as cq pointed out. Then concubine was hell irritating with her poor reasoning n blaming cq. Yuan song his reasoning was complete lame. But I can’t say anything as the poor boy is dwelling in his own world where he thought he could win cq n live peacefully in love.he thought world is beautiful like his garden. Finally some action by YWY. He is opening up on protecting his lady openly by dissing his grandfather. I m loving him now. Master wei guy is just another puppet who on shown a candy by princess. He is ready to follow her like a dog. Now, my darling xiao ce cannot stay back. He has taken his step to protect his lady. The silly scholar just lightened the mood of all killings n mellow. It was pleasant entry

      Yuan song, chun er and wei shuye should all just disappear and live together in their own little different world..and bring concubine lan with them..they are so stupidly irritatingly pathetic even from the start..cq had already explained to song er his backwards logic and he still doesnt understand..chun er has to be raped to open her eyes that she cant have yx and now blames cq..lan was too arrogant to ywh and regrets it and now blames cq..these people are too stupid to survive in the harsh world

      • 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

        Prince of liang however, now that is how a smart man makes moves..coming to chang an, deliberately picking cq because of her yx connection and was pleasantly genuinely surprised to admire her spirit, dispatching his sister spies-enemies, saving cq all in 1 go

  29. 82 thoughts on “Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

    I am truly enjoying the episodes more and more. Shawn is a great actor. I am pleased that LY introduced him for this role. I like this look on him. I think that he truly does care about CQ and want her to have a good opinion of him. While I like Chun’Er and Song’Er, I just felt that they are a little naive. Chun’Er blaming everyhing on CQ is just a bit much when CQ kept them safe on their journey back. Anyway, I am so totally hooked and enjoying this. LY did great here.
