recently went back to watching a couple tv dramas that are from China like Love O2O, Rush to the Dead Summer and many more but today, I'll be talking about this latest series called 特工皇妃楚乔传 - Princess Agents.
i feel like it's going to be one of those trending sensations like the Little Nyonya local channel 8 tv series many years ago.
if you haven't seen this c-drama, you should. i'm currently at episode 48 where the state of Yanbei & Wei are going to break the treaty & enter into war. but it didn't take me more than 10 episodes to realize why they chose Zanilia Zhao (赵丽颖) as the main female lead. even tho I like Zheng Shuang, i think this Zanilia Zhao has her own distinctive qualities & this difference actually compliments one another like comparing competitive swimming with Rugby. both are different but equally amazing
don't let the first few episodes fool you.. it is not a male chauvinistic type of show but instead, the adversities she faced are necessary to accentuate the brilliance of this Xing'er aka Chu Qiao aka Zanilia. well at least that's what i feel since i didn't read the storybook etc. she's not just a head-turner but also multi-talented
i'm not so familiar with the entertainment scene in China but i like how this Shawn Dou is able to act as both a good guy & an antagonist. he can prolly take on the main lead in another show imo
i think fans of China tv dramas &/or movies should keep a lookout on this Deng Lun guy. he takes on the supporting role called Xiao Ce, a prince of the state of Liang.
this drama gets a 10/10 from me.
