i like the princess too, it shows drama up to 56 eps, Asule deserves to be loved.

 

He does and I am pretty happy with all the gifs and screencaps i've seen in weibo today. 

 

I have finally let go of my delulu ship! Lol 

 

I really hope we get 56 eps! It cant end at 50!

 

It feels like its the plot is starting to move again at 46 lol

I'm still watching this drama but as each episode passes, I lose more & more interest. It started out so good but now ? Too much killing, too much misery & for what? What's the purpose? I guess as a viewer I was looking for a hero, for someone to rise above all & save the day. I watched the trailers up to 50 & Asule takes the lead in a battle (I've lost track of who's battling who & why). 

 

Truthfully, I'm terribly disappointed. I so looked forward to this drama. I so loved it at the beginning, as in Tribes & Empires. I so wanted to see a satisfying coherent ending. I'm not dumb but I feel like I've become very dumb now (dumb as in IQ).

This is connected with Tribes and EMpires right? Tribes and EMpires had a really good beginning nut we were all left hanging at the end. 

They only share some settings and history because it's technically set in the same word. They are written by different authors and Jiang Nan, Eagle Flag's author have since changed some of his setting. It also changed significantly from the books/story so lmao.

I dun understand Y so many ppl hated XZ, its becos she has too much screentime?

Yeah basically. She's not a main character in the book, because Jiang Nan didn't quite get to explore her story. So to book fans, it felt like she was shoved in (She was much younger in the books and didn't have much as interaction with the main group) To shipping fans, they ruined their ship, which is little silly because Yuran's otp was never Asule, their relationship have always been one sided, book or drama.

 

She also seem to be on track of Ji Ye's path in the book, so Ji Ye fans are extra unhappy with her, since she "stole" his storyline. Asule fans are unhappy with her because the he got revived and amnesia plot is drama original. They feel that it was written in to prop her up, while I disagree and think it's just terrible writing, I can sort of see where they are coming from, it's because she comes out of this with most benefits. Asule only remembers her, he's fully reliant on her, they spend a lot of time together and get a relationship developed.  I guess one could argue the plot ensure Asule learns how to control his berserk mode, but that's also because of her. I briefly shipped them two together but have since abandoned it because of that entire arc, I really think they could have used some other plot device/development and make it smoother.

 

@liddi I don't mean what they want, but what the story had in mind for them. I've mentioned before that Yuran doesn't care for anything political, but that's clearly not what other people or the story have in mind for her. For Ji Ye, in drama, I think that's earning a place in the army (general or something)? He did get acknowledge for who he is, but I don't think that was the story's end goal for him. Since then he has gotten dragged into his friends' problems, which is fine since they are his friends. I'm just not sure what he has in the future for him the way the story is going now. Asule should be returning to Northern Lands now so let's see how that goes.

Altho I am so confused with what is happening in the drama now and asking what is the logic of all of it, I dont think I can drop it. I am so invested in this drams right now, enough to resurrect this account. I cannot let Asule go and I need to know what will happen to him. 

 

This feels like Tribes and Empires again, it really has a good start but towards the end it just a big whole mess!

Just finished watching episode 48, preview of 49 and 50. Initially I continued to watch because I love the development of innocent and naive romance between XZ princess and Asule. But in the preview, Asule took a deep bow and address XZ as her royal Highness. He thanked her for taking care of him and left on a horse with a head of messy hair and love-less, grave look on his face. ? His way of breaking up with a lady.

So I guess JY, Asule & YR's unique friendship will just stay in their memories, right? Asule will return to his homeland & rule/save it? JY will become an officer in somebody's army? And YR will just sprout wings & flit around in the sky? I'm sticking w/the drama but I'm becoming very sarcastic. 

 

The only thing sticking in my mind right now is how nice JY looks w/out his shirt.

@Angeline Ong LGC refused to bring XZ along with him to Qingyang because he had no way of knowing if he would survive, and he would not risk putting her in danger. Nonetheless, in Ep50, LGC told his oldest brother that he has found someone he loves in the Eastern Lands, and he wishes to go back when everything in the Northern lands is settled, so I am still clinging to the hope that perhaps, by some miracle, they will be reunited after all. Still, remembering the old man in Ep1 who had paper boats set adrift on the lake, just like what XZ taught him when he was grieving for his father and could not tell him what was in his heart anymore, I am afraid that the drama will find a way to snuff out that hope too. Please don't.

@jeenee Quick explanation of what is revealed so far in response to your question:

Spoiler

Asule's brother was named heir to the throne by his father just before he died and he earned the ire of many when he married Suma very quickly during the mourning period for his father. Apparently Suma survived the attack in the valley and took two years to find her way back to the grasslands.  At the Northern capital, her speech was restored by a skilled physician, and later, Asule's oldest brother fell in love with her at first sight and married her. Seeing that Suma supposedly died during a confrontation with the Chiya, I have to wonder whether she was revived by LBC and now sent to create havoc in the grasslands too. I won't be surprised if she is intent on vengeance, especially since her father and Zhenyan tribesmen were killed by orders of Asule's father, her sister at the hands of Asule, and she left for dead by the man she loved en route to Lower Tang. We'll see.

@liddi CDramas are known for its Open/Sad endings on its stories.

 

It's one of those dramas that I hope we get a good definite ending since I'm already emotionally invested to its one of its characters, Asule watching his character growth in the story.
