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.

Zhao Liyin is coming to Western Wei in Princess Agents trailer

As one of the few time-travelling novels where the lead actually acts like she’s from the modern era and is intent on changing the social order versus being caught in a love triangle, this is definitely the ancient idol drama I’m most looking forward to, and the trailer doesn’t disappoint.    Princess Agents 特工皇妃楚乔传 stars Zhao Liying, Lin Gengxin, Shawn Dou, and Li Qin, and tells of Khaleesi Chu Qiao’s quest to abolish slavery in ancient Western Wei.

New visually stunning trailer for Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy

I’ve been trying to keep my expectations low for Tribes and Empires, but the release of another fantastic trailer isn’t helping.

Their love interests are played by Janice Man, Xu Lu and Zhang Jianing respectively.
