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.

Earlier, he quietly sat there, not drawing any attention to himself. But once he spoke, others could not help but turn their attention to him. Even when he did not smile, he was already the most beautiful painting. Now that he was clearly smiling, others recognized that in this world, there was no artist who could have painted such magnificence. As it turned out, this was the shaoy…

Since this day on, the new skill of dancing behind the screen would become popular. Even many imperial concubines dirtied their sleeves to dance behind the screen in order to gain the emperor’s favors. Since it was like that in the palace, then it would also be ubiquitous amongst the commoners; people found out that wherever there was a well, then there would be ink water dance. Soon Li Wei Yang’s name and the dance had spread to every corners in Da Li. But all these happened after, this was something Li Wei Yang didn’t expect. She only thought about wanting to successfully pass this obstacle and let others deeply remember her. It wasn’t that Li Wei Yang didn’t have any talent but she just didn’t want to show off in front of others.
