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)

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.

      lol, I hate it too, but since I know that they have a happy ending in the novel, i feel relieved. I just hope the season 2 is confirmed with same leading casts. Then we'll get to see XingYue happily ever after.

    As much as i love the drama and the love story b/w xinger and yuwen yue, my heart broke for him whenever xinger never admitted her feeling for him. I can't move on from the last two episode, the temple scene and the ice lake scene.
    I keep repeating those scene and i just wanted to cry for yuwen yue, why does he love her so much? I'm kinda glad he dies at the end because xinger needs to feel the pain that yuwen yue had gone through.

      Yup, sad indeed. We just have to bear it. See the bright side, icy lake incident makes Xinger finally can see where her heart is. I'm thinking, it would be nice to see in season 2 Xinger having bad dreams, flashback of the icy lake over and over again, torture her a little bit hehehe...

    The drama is good I like both leading actors, the writers/director dragged the story in many occasions and in some there were minutes missing for sure,it could have been 48 episodes easily and still have 10 more to tell the rest of the story but I guess they saw the success and decided to go for a 2nd season (or all this has to do with the plagiarism etc.) so we wait now...
    Nevertheless its a good drama not the best but good, my top 4 Chinese drama are
    The legend of zhen huan
    Nirvana in fire
    Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms
    Scarlet heart.

      Yeah, that last scene with the cliffhanger made it all worth while for me. I love both Xinger and Yuwen Yue.

    I applaud the CGI & special effects team for making this not as cringey as some other chinese dramas! (I love them but sometimes it's unbearable to watch real people fight with cartoon creatures lol)

    • Reply
      MaSheshe 9 days ago

      Yeah, but the cringy CGI makes them so much better! hahaha Sometimes it does to be honest. But this one was amazing, but then again there were no mystical creatures so of course the CGI is a lot better.

      I watched it on youtube, 1080p quality and it loads (of course, it's yt afterall :D) a LOT faster than other sites! You can easily watch it on your phone and resume from where you've stopped. Also, the subtitles are the same everywhere since they take them from youtube i guess.

    I really enjoyed the latter part of this drama because if it wasn't for my curiosity I would have dropped the drama earlier on. The war and action scenes were spectacular.

      It felt like two completely different dramas right?

      Mary28 10 days ago

      Yeah because in the beginning it seemed they were going to focus on the heroine story, but it wasn't clear what direction the drama was going because it was focusing on too many side plots. Finally halfway they picked Yan Xun story to stick with and things started to fall in place. Also I noticed the first part was mostly wuxia and the latter part was just regular martial arts.
