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?
