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.

    What a complete mess that was. The only people who got complete character arcs were Yan Xun, Yuan Song, and Chun'er. What. A. Mess.

    Also, I love how everyone was so against the idea of a S2 and trying to debunk it when rumours came out, and now it's like.... lol.

      yep, you're right, that's exactly what they did. And from my understanding many sequels for c-drama almost never have the same cast, and I just dont understand why they do that? Like we've grown attach to the characters and actors that play them, and they just go and change the cast. I was actually very shocked that the legend of chusen 2 had ALL the original cast in it. That does not happen very often.

      From my understanding, Legend of Chusen 2 and Glory of Tang Dynasty 2 weren't really sequels. They were filmed at the same time as season 1, but the episodes were just released online after S1 finished airing which is why they're so much shorter.

      A true sequel would be like Ode to Joy 2, which did get the full cast back.

      Yes. Exactly. That's my beef with the ending. It's just not finished. The director must be a complete amateur or is just not very good at story telling. And that's exactly how I felt about CQ. I could understand her behavior up until this very last episode, an then I was like, what? Her words and actions made no sense at all.

      Yes! @darcy, that's what was so frustrating for me in the drama, exactly how you just described the romance! It's like the director couldn't make up their minds!

      and thanks for clarifying about the legend of Chosen 2, no wonder, cuz i was pretty amaze that they were all back. lol

    The problem is the book continues so we know where things are supposed to go. It feels like production wants to see if they can milk a second season for more money or they're terrible at planning the story arc. Neither one is a good thing.

    If this was the ending and there was no book there might be a lot of complaining about how it ended but I wouldn't agree with it all. But that's not the case. The book continues with more content they're not covering. The cast likely won't all be back. Terrible.

    58 episodes was suppose to be the end now it says 67? That's weird. Well if the drama ended like that it would of got at least 2 points taken off. Well I'm going to go ahead and take off another point for that ending/cliffhanger. I don't like it when authors do it and I don't like it when drama's do it.

    Such a shame that this drama had a chance to be a decent rival to Ten Miles, but after that ending it pales in comparison...Ten Miles was beautifully directed and executed!!

    Come on guys. There definitely has to be a season two. There's no way they will end it here. Because the real story starts now. Have hope.

      Nothing confirmed. Only rumors. And so far, no original cast is coming back. So yeah, if there's a drama land miracle, then yes we can have a season 2 with the original cast. If not the original cast, then no one will watch it. I won't. Just doesn't make sense. How can I pretend someone else is Yuwen Yue when I've seen LGX playing him?

      I know. The reality is cruel but here's to hoping. I won't watch it either if the actors are changed tho. No one can play Chu Qiao like Zhao Li Ying.

      Totally agree with this. If they were going to insist on a cliffhanger, Chu Qiao seeing Yuwen Yue at the festival would have at least been a better option. And yes, I hope english translation of the novel would be released too, either fanmade or official. I've read an excerpt of the novel, the translation of the book version of the drama's finale, and it was thousand times better. :(

      same, if only they'd publish it in english. I'd absolutelty buy it. Just not too keen on the whole time traveling aspect. I much prefer Chu Qiao being the daught of a spy instead of waking up in an 8 year olds body.

    So was she ever in love with Yun Xun? Or was she subconsciously in love with yu wen tie the whole time?

      I prefer to think that she has feeling for YWY the whole time. I don't want my baby to be second or after thought lol. It is true the show is not entirely clear. Not sure if they did it on purpose or terrible writing/direction.

      Well summarized @hoshitaiga. I agree, that's how I read CQ's feelings for YX and YWY too. I'm not too clear about YX's final words but I can take your interpretation on it.

      El amor de Chu y Xun comienza cuando se siente traicionado por Yuwen. Comienza a fortalecerse con lo que hicieron a la familia de Xun, además. Cuando Yuwen lo pierde un Chu, se da cuenta de que la ama. Sabes que esta en segundo plano Y ella no lo acepta, aunque ella lo aprecia. Ella es leal a Xun que nunca la traicionó. Y ella escoge su camino hacia él ... Hasta que la cinta de sus ojos comienza a caerse. Los valores de Xun no son los mismos que los de Yuwen. Entonces ves cómo se siente tirada por ambos. Y que de alguna manera había pensado que sus planes continuaban junto a Xun. Pero todo empieza a cambiar, su motivo de amor es la libertad, un pueblo libre sin esclavos. No por el amor mismo, esa es la diferencia. Al final, cambia su lealtad y elige por amor, se da cuenta de todo ...

      i think in the early part of the story when she was at green hills court, she already had romantic feelings for ywy but she was torn since she hated him for killing her brother
