Love this Princess Agents drama. Love the cast, specially the two main lead, Xinger and Yuwen Yue. This drama is really addicting and it makes you wondering what is going to happen next. I can't say much of the story line because of spoilers. Give this drama a try, you will not be disappointed. there are only 32 episodes that have been aired so far. I have rewatched them so many time already.

As Princess Agents is ongoing this review will be getting updated as I go through **

So far I love this drama it's characters are aces, plot progression though slow at times is well paced with information being told at good intervals. The OST's are amazing!!!! I love how everything is timed perfectly with each scene. Good action sequences and political aspects, strategic plans, scheming, inner and outer strength growing in our read more characters. Character growth is also really well done. Chemistry between all the characters is elegant, anticipated and well executed. The story line so far is absolutely one of my favorite C-Dramas up to date.

Okay that's where I'm at for now. Also even though I'm not finished I can say this with 100% certainty that I will be able to re-watch this series in the future as of today I have re-seen the first episode again.

If you want thoughts/reviews/slight recaps of episodes I have them up to episode 16.

WATCH THIS SHOW. It's in no way a regret. It may have a lot of episodes but the story and actors make it go by so fast :D Give it a try what do you have to lose? (An amazing experience of a show that's what lol)

Make a Recommendation More recs (6)Recommendations

Both dramas are surprisingly good.
The cutie Yue Qi from princess agents is the male lead in the eternal love.
The eternal love is a mini online series that can save y'all from the drama slump after watching princess agents.
Cuz we are all so tired out from Yu wen yue and Xinger's slowly brewed romance. The romance in the eternal love is like instant coffee. It will make you swoon cuz Yue Qi is about to teach his Yu Wen Yue how love is suppose to be done.

I know they're different genres since one revolves around war and the other about the injustices slaves go through, but there are A LOT of similarities.

-Both female leads start off as lowly maids even if they weren't originally and were actually part of a higher class (in Maids she loses her status and in PA she loses her memory).
-Both female leads fight for justice and especially for the rights of the poor.
-They are both alone against the whole world basically.
-A cold male lead that hardly ever smiles.
-Romance that is important but isn't, however, the main focus.
-Female lead falls in love with the second male lead and hates the male lead at first.
-Good second male lead that becomes evil and corrupted towards the end but he still loves the female lead.
-In both dramas there's a depiction of the lives of maids and slaves who are treated badly because of the powerful nobles.
-Female lead is strong and isn't crazy in love with anyone.
-Second female lead is a noble in Maids and a Princess in PA and is in love with the second male lead.
-Delusional second female lead who was once nice but became evil, trying to make the female lead's life a hell bc of her love for the second male lead.
-Awful noble people are present in both.
-Once the female lead begins to trust the male lead, she discovers something that makes her lose her trust in him.

    Can someone tell me who Xing'Er gets with at the end?

      you can say that she will end up with Yuwen Yue. the ending is a cliffhanger. Season 2 is expected.
      My opinion, this drama is a great drama despite the cliffhanger ending. You feel the love yuwen yue for xinger and Xinger will realize at the end that all along she loves him too, but it is too late for her to tell him now since he is already at the bottom of the frozen icy lake. (I'm glad that Xinger poured her heart out to him in the last episode. this is also her punishment of not realizing her heart sooner). I'm waiting for season 2 with original cast.

      Lots of people reviewed that it has tragic ending, which also made hesitate. But then I read one comment that said that the ending is not as bad as they expected, which was the 'push' for me to give it a try. After I found it was not as bad as I expected after all, you may call it bittersweet.

      No worries :)
      I don't know about the others but since I heard that she gained popularity from Legend of Chisen I might start watching that next. ZLY just has that irresistible cuteness that males and females alike adore, particularly emplified in Boss&Me. I do love her

      I am big fan of ZLY, so pretty much watched all of her dramas and movie already. Journey of the Flower is good, happy ending but not satisfying. Rookie Agent is good, ending is happy too but similar to Journey of the Flower. Legend Chusen is good but cliffhanging ending like PA! lol But I do recommend all of them. I guess Cdramas always have these kind of endings. I hated, but still enjoyed every bit of it til the end. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

    Lets wish we will have a decent PA happy ending season 2 with the same casts.

    At least all the leads ZLY - LGX - Shawn - Deng Lun will be back.

    I hope the production team will make all the way to win ZLY back,.. **Hoping my baby Liying wanna finish Chu Qiao's story............... No one could act (the complex hard character) Chu Qiao/Xing-er as perfect as ZLY
    ** Best Actress **

    WOW... Love Love this drama from the very first ep.. I was not even a fan of all the casts.
    But I'm glad all the fuss got to me :)) Even after finished it 10 days I still can't move on, my heart still thinking all about PA, esp my lovely XingYue and Chu Qiao <333
    I can handle the ending coz I spoiled myself and after knew the novel ==> I think the ending was as expected,.. But they could made it more longer on that 'ice lake XingYue part'

    After all, for a long long time, PA was the first drama that made me so addicted and engrossed to the story so close.

    Excellence <333

    Ps. Even the great Eternal Love could not made me hooked

    I've loved this drama from the beggining. The ending wasn't dissapointing for me. I'm waiting for second season. I hope that in PA2 there will be the same cast.

    OMG:< I should've known that this has a tragic ending before starting. Now I'm at ep 37 and contemplating whether to continue or not cause I really hate sad endings (except Nirvana in Fire; it was the perfect ending)

    Anyway, I need some help: should I continue watching this or not? Is it really worth it? So far I'm enjoying the series but why does this have to be a tragedy?

    I'm not against to a realistic approach when it comes to dramas, but aren't we already living in a very sad world? Why must films as good as this one had to have a very sad ending too. :( such a pity. I believe what the world needs now are happy endings. For us to never loose hope, despite the setbacks we have in life, somewhere along the way, in whatever path we may take a happy ending awaits. It's not about being unrealistic, It's about being optimistic.

    I've been avoiding the ending because I spoiled it for myself but I'm glad I did because then I wouldn't have been so gutted by the ending. This drama went through a series of ups and downs for me. The ups were more at the Green Hills court for me which explains why I enjoyed the drama so much in the beginning. It was all right when they finally reached Yanbei but the storytelling became more haphazard and the characters more traitorous to what we had known previously. All in all, I liked it - 8/10

    Regardless of the ending I would rate it 10, the fact that every night I sat up to see this drama till it was ended showed how compelling, intriging, intoxicating and additive the drama was due to great and excellent acting of the cast. It would dishearten and discourage the millions of viewers around the world like me who followed these episode on a day to day basis until it was finally completed to exchange them with another cast. Like so many we wanted the fairy tale ending however the way the drama ended made viewers furious over their expectation and anticipation of a fairy tale ending. There are millions and I am among them, and those who I shared the drama with are awaiting the return of Li Gengxin and Zhao Liying as Yuwen Yue and Xinger. It would be a great disappointment after the long awaiting of season 2 and Li Gengxin and Zhao Liying as Yuwen Yue and Xinger. who have won the hearts of the many, millions and billions not to be part of season 2 as the main role. For it would be better not to waste time making season 2 if they are not there. Shawn Duo I love also were all great actors. I love this Drama and I have rewatched some of the episode three to four times. The ending was heart wrenching but there couldn’t be a better performance by Li Gengxin and Zhao Liying as Yuwen Yue and Xinger. It was fantastic only thing is viewers wanted the fairy tale ending between these two. Directors and Producers work on getting back these two on this set if your work is to appreciated in the future. Again it would be a great waste to change the cast after such excellent rating by viewers around the world.

    Despite the disappointing ending, it is a good show compared to many others. I like how Xing'er is strong and that there is actually strength in her character and voice. May she be an example to young girls and boys growing up that we can rise above harsh circumstances. We have a choice in life.

    I want to thank this show for bringing so many people together; some are starting to feel like friends I know for a long time. Thank you for this journey and I hope we meet again through another show. Feel free to add me and happy watching. :)
