Reposting from previous posts: From the reviews, the novel is a tragic romance, a political marriage with a sad ending between two royalties, princess and prince of two different countries. She’s a carefree, spirited, and pampered princess of Western Liang while he’s raised under the hatred of his mother’s murder (?), becoming an introverted Zhongyuan Prince of his own. They do have a brief sweet romance of their own when he comes to her under disguise three years ago and she falls for him hard, an innocent and sincere love she gives to him completely. She tells him she wants 100 fireflies before she would agree to marry him and what he does is set the whole night to be lit up by hundreds and perhaps thousands of fireflies.

Unfortunately, on their wedding day, he takes off his mask, and the boy she loves…dies that day. What’s left of him is a cold, calculating and cruel Prince, turning her whole world upside down, her father goes mad, her mother and grandfather die, forcing her to jump into a Forgetfulness river, ridding of her these cruel memories. But he also jumps into the river to save her!

And under a blank state of mind, she marries that cruel man in exchange for the peace of her countrymen; their lives never intersecting for 3 years. He has his own beloved concubine while she spends her days escaping outside the palace, helping the poor, catching thieves, sending lost kids home, etc.

When I say the ending is sad it’s because our male lead’s thirst for the throne scares the heroine as he’s willing to kill anyone who stands in his way. So much that the only way to escape him, is death. This sounds familiar… doesn’t it? A man goes cray-cray for the throne and eventually loses the lady he loves… *ahum* *ahum*

Directed by Li Mu Ge (Fighting Time, Roses Battle) written by Song Yang Ming (Seven Years) and Fei Wo Si Cun, Goodbye My Princess has 55 episodes.

    First, I still don’t understand this tendency to change romantic/poetic original novel titles to obscure and generic title for their drama adaptations (Eastern Palace to Goodbye My Princess, Records of Southern Mist to Love of Hypnosis… WTH??!!)

    Not sure if I want to dig into a melo period drama *sigh*. Perhaps I’m out of tolerance stock for tragic stories (been drain out by Bloody Romance – and it remains my #1 drama this year despite my current obsession w/ Ever Night). But I also want to see Chen Xingxu again. His character here sounds very much like Yang Kang, no? I hope he won’t be typecast. I’ll prolly wait for first episodes review before deciding if I want to check it.

      I think they change titles to accomodate the viewers who haven’t read or know the source story. But I got to admit I do not like most title changes because they still don’t sound as good, for instance, the drama title of “Records of the Southern Mist House”, even though they changed a huge part of the story.

      Somebody said that in the epilogue, the Emperor (the male lead) has become mad and he thinks the daughter born from one of his concubines is his daughter with the princess…

        What?!?? Are The male lead and the female heroine having a daughter?

        • 13 thoughts on “Chen Xing Xu and Peng Xiao Ran’s Goodbye My Princess joins December broadcast

          Sadly no, the female lead passed away but the emperor couldn’t accept it and somehow convinced himself his daughter, borne by another woman was actually the daughter between the two leads

    I’m confused…I don’t understand why he is so cruel to her. Doesn’t sound like she did anything to deserve it besides being from a rival country? It sounds like his character will be difficult to like.

      Honestly, you’re right he’s not a really likeable character, hence why they have to meet a tragic end. It’s just he’s a classic very ambitious crown prince and makes use of basically everyone and everything.

        Thanks! I thought there might be a genuine reason I as missing but I guess not lol! Well, I hope they can make him more tolerable in the drama because he sounds very unlikeable.

    I like this trend of having fresh faces take on lead roles. I think it allows them to place the budget elsewhere. That being said, I only really like the casting of the female lead in this series. I’m not really get the extremely dashing vibes from the males as described in the novel.

      I agree about the fresh faces. I think that’s the reason I’m preferring webdramas over TV dramas recently too.

    This is one of the stories and film that i am staying away from. Sounds super depressing.
