New and dramatically sideways drama posters for upcoming big budget period C-drama Princess Agents has me mildly hopeful I can find a new C-drama worth watching. Can’t say I love either leads Zhao Li Ying or Lin Geng Xin but I don’t dislike either as well and have heard lots of buzz around this particular project since it was announced. Zhao Li Ying plays a slave girl in the Wei dynasty who becomes a martial arts trained agent turned general and strategist, basically a period version of a feminists dream. I quite like the black background sideways character posters, it makes me look twice and the contrast and intensity makes for a visual pop. The drama premieres in early June so I’m expecting a big summer hit with the popularity of the leading lady and the aspirational slave to leader strong female lead story line. Check out the first teaser for yourself below with English subs.
