Princess Agents (Chu Qiao Zhuan) Chinese Drama Review

Like many viewers, I fell into the trap and got addicted to Princess Agents. As a fan of the many actors and actresses (Zhao Liying, Lin Gengxin, Shawn Dou, Li Xin, Ian Wang, etc) in the drama, I watched each episode on the day it was aired until Episode 54 (cut version). That was when I realized the TV station was butchering the series with 10-minutes+ recap and only 20 minutes of new content. Around Episode 54, I started becoming confused with the plot and also the rumors of a second season. I enjoy watching happy endings that have a closure because I don't want to spend 40+ hours on a drama with an open ending that doesn't even have a second installment ready to be aired. I think only TV adaptations of Gu Man's novels successfully capture the original storytelling.


My Review: 7/10 stars
It could have been a second Nirvana in Fire but because of the choppy editings and horrible script writing, it failed. There were so many things that could have been elaborated more or cu…

“Min De’s handwriting has surpassed mine.” Li Weiyang said, her lips quirking up at the corners slightly; a smile like spring’s breeze.

Li Min De did not take her comment to heart: “Sanjie likes calligraphy? If you like it, I can always invite Laoshi—”

There were increasingly more people at Li Min De’s side now; without even asking, Li Weiyang naturally knew that his status was extremely special, to have attracted individuals who shouldn’t have reason to appear in Da Li. He never spoke about it, and she did not pry. However, there was indeed something that she had been very curious about. She set down the Xuan calligraphy paper in her hands, and softly uttered: “Da Furen’s courtyard..”

Li Min De paused slightly. He replied casually: “Oh, Sanjie is referring to the news about Aunt’s…
