Wow...I didn't think it was possible for them to make the story more tragic, but they managed it...T_T

I have to agree the author did make this story so much more tragic. One wonder this book was ranked one of the saddest in China. Also, the author is famous for making her male leads suffer with sad endings. Lol. Not funny at all.

Does anyone who read the novel have any idea exactly how much memory loss Li Chengyin suffers from? Like, does he remember his involvement in the war against Dan Chi, does he remember who killed his mother, etc.

GOd help me! I already know the outcome but I can't seem to stop wanting to watch more. 

What is it with tragedy that makes me want to know the whole story?

She looks beautiful in red.

Melodrama Goodbye My Princess is turning out to be a very enjoyable watch for me. Peng Xiaoran is delightful as Xiaofeng, and while Chen Xingxu struggles to deliver in some of the major emotional scenes, he does a good job bringing out the more ruthless side of Li Chengyin / Gu Xiaowu.

 

I find the interactions between Xiaofeng and Gu Xiaowu before and after they jump down the River of Forgetfulness to be really sweet, but then I just get depressed thinking of what Xiaofeng has been through and what they will go through after Xiaofeng regains her memories. Romance aside, I’m also really liking the ambitious prince’s political machinations – it’s not every day you see such a character as the male lead.

Any thoughts on the drama so far?

Chen Xingxu Breaks Hearts As The Hated Hero of Goodbye My Princess

Goodbye+My+Princess+33.jpg

 

In almost every show we watch, particularly in dramas, there's always a character whom we love to hate.  Most of the time, it's the conniving antagonist, other times it's the spineless side character and in rare occasions, it's the hero.  In Goodbye My Princess 东宫, the male lead is the one drawing ire for being the biggest jerk ever. Warning: This contains spoilers from early episodes. 
 


Chen Xingxu plays Li Chengyin, the 5th prince who is handsome, charming, smart but no knight in shining armor to Xiao Feng, the princess played by Peng Xiaoran.  

 

In an effort to secure his position in court, Li Chengyin assumes another identity to get close to Xiao Feng and gain her trust. They marry, yet their wedding day also marks a tragic day. He becomes directly responsible for the death of Xiao Feng's family despite being saved by her and owing her his life.  The trauma he causes is so great that Xiao Feng willingly jumps into a river of forgetfulness to erase all of their past memories. 

 

For using Xiao Feng, betraying their vows and worse, massacring an entire tribe, Li Chengyin takes the crown as a most hated protagonist. Goodbye My Princess is based on a novel by Fei Wo Si Cun, an author arguably known for her heartbreaking romance stories. Did you get your tissues out yet? 

 

The drama has spawned several memes poking fun at Li Chengyin's idea of love as the kind of love that's full of lies, kills an entire family, you get the gist. Most people often wish for a happy ending but in this one, many believe the male lead deserves to live the rest of his life alone or be killed by Xiao Feng. What do you guys think of Li Chengyin as a character? Do you love him or hate him?

Actually rather than tissues, it would be more appropriate to prepare a punching bag along as well. 

 

I am pausing on ep.12, waiting for more episodes to get subbed. But I have a feeling that I would really need a punching bag soon, especially as XF enters the Eastern Palace, with amnesiac LCY, the harem, the inner palace politics, blast from the past, and so on.

Someone here mentioned just heard the Director has apparently confirmed that they are working on an alternative ending so that both the book martyrs and love fools can get what they want. Don’t quote me on it but I’ve seen several posts now and it has apparently been commissioned by Youku (probably because they realised how successful the drama is).
Copied from someone posting.

 

Also, I heard the same thing but I think they will show both ending to satisfy book fan and others. Let you choose which ending for yourself. Alternative ending maybe be an extra episode. Haha...

I love the drama plot so much. Although it is so heart wrenching, it is still worth to be watch. I hope I can see a lot of sweet moments between the leads. They’re so cute together, they have great chemistry !!!!

Yeah,he kills him,he things he is Gu Xiaowu and that she is hidding it to save him while Shifu if they go by the book to save A Du, while LCW forces XF to watch him being killed...Mainly if u don't wanna be spoiled over the full drama don't watch any of the MV's related to ti as like all chinese dramas u will kinda see all of it in their promotional MV's...

Does anyone know why there aren't new episodes,is there some festivity this week or something?and not the ones posted on YT...

 

I think this might be the only drama in all my drama watching so far that i'm glad it ends in tragedy as for all it happenes i can't see them together and LCW is such a frighting character that never deserved XF's love nor mercy...I guess the only one i'm rooting is for XF and A-du even if i know how it will end,at least she did find her freedom as sad as it was.i trully wanted her to escape and be happy but i know it won't be possible as he would chase after her even at the end of the world...I'm all for love and romance but this one just can't root for them no matter what after all the blood that is between them,just too twisted for him to get his happy ending,he trully deserves a life of suffering

hi...i'm missing you too, and so happy can see you on here...this story is okay but i must say maybe this is for the first time on chinese drama i'm really can't agree with the male lead acts...

Spoiler

I could not agree with the actions of him who attacked the Danchi tribe in this way, because he had built good relations with the Danchi tribe and then attacked their tribes ... it felt like a betrayal of feelings and betrayal of relations, because they had behaved well to him. I prefer to fight boldly and gentle with not having to deceive the feelings and beliefs of the person, because the fight between two parties who don't have the right relationship like a good friend will be better than pretending to be good and then betraying them. , it was very painful for people who had given all their trust to him ... that was a part I could not accept from the treatment of a male lead maybe in a story ... and I'm starting to feel maybe this story won't end happily ... but yeah ... I'll continue ...

I also feel that GJ is better than LCY at this time, but XF blames him because he introduced XF to GXW and he knows that their tribe will be attacked ... I feel sad when he is hurt by ADU and falls into a cliff, but the good thing is he finally survived and reappear.

What LCY did to Danchi tribe was horrible, but he did asked XF about it BEFORE he did what he did (that night when they slept under the tree?). He told her a story about a mother who was killed, and asked her if lying to friend in order to avenge his mother is forgivable....and silly XF said of course. This answer solidify his resolution to wipe out Danchi Tribe and conquer all western state, to earn him enough merit to climb and avenge his mother.

 

I still wonder why XF even stated that if she becomes that friend, she would have forgave that action (of lying...or actually, betraying. LCY didnt really specify the weigh of the lie though)

 

Anyway, her asnwer that night seems to become LCY permit to do anything to avenge his mother, and the start of this tragedy.

oh yes, I want to ask the revenge against the danchi tribe because the prince (first brother) LCY was killed by danchi tribe, really? the problem is I'm quite confused by the story that GXW told that night to the XF regarding the death of his mother ... whether his mother's death was also related to the tribe of danchi, because I knew his mother was poisoned by the empress of the Li dynasty which was the mother who raised him.

Besides that, I want to ask, the first prince who was killed by the Danchi tribe is whether the culprit is xiaofeng's cousin brother?  (because there is one scene at the beginning of the story, where Xiaofeng and Guxiaowu met XF's cousin brother and the person from Li's dynasty, I forgot his name ... hahaha ) and was the LI dynasty involved in the murder of the first prince?
