Princess Agents OP continues to rule

When was the last time a woman sang the exciting OP about ruling the world?    Props to  Princess Agents for breaking the mold of a fastbeat male opening song and a romantic female ending song.

Between this, the Advisors Alliance, and Rush to the Dead Summer, this summer just might make up for the lackluster showing last year.

Featuring an ancient drama female lead with an actual goal in mind (and to free the slaves that she was once a part of, no less), and whose romantic deal breaker is politics, this could very well be Zhao Liying’s breakthrough role to launch her out of cutesy roles.   OP is by Zhang Bichen and Zhao Liying.

Princess Agents continues with decent production and costumes

I’m just here for the pretty production… not for the name that still makes me shudder…

Princess Agents 特工皇妃楚乔传 has released even more stills.  Starring Zhao LiyingLin GengxinDou XiaoDeng LunLi Qin, and Niu Junfeng, not exactly an expert on the costuming of this time period but at least some of the costumes seem to mimic some of the images I have seen in the past for this era with more modern styling as opposed to a “generic hanfu” look (1, 2, 3, 4).
