The Rebel Princess (Monarch Industry)

Apparently, the Rebel Princess was a cdrama that was originally called the Monarch Industry.

This cdrama highlights the budding romance of a spoiled princess and a general from humble beginnings.

With a historical backdrop of politics and intrigue. There’s also a novel that the show is loosely based off of.

Check out the synopsis below!

Synopsis

One is a spoiled noblewoman because of her birth and background.

The other is a powerful but low-born general.

Despite coming from different backgrounds, the two form a tight bond as they attempt to navigate power struggles.

During the Cheng dynasty as internal and external forces are at work to bring the realm to its knees.

How will this power couple fare when they also realize the Imperial family has no plans of letting them rise to power?

A few more new faces that I don’t recognize! But I’m interested in the growth of the princess character.

I have heard various rumors that various netizens are upset by the casting of the main female lead.

Zhang Zi Yi.

Because she’s too old to be playing the 15yr princess? However, there’s also potential issues if you change actresses when the characters grow and mature in the story.

Based on the trailer and the vibes I got from Zhang Zi Yi, I don’t think she’s too old to play the youthful character part.

As the makeup artist did their job really well.

I think Zhang Zi Yi’s skills will shine when she plays the mature princess. And that’s when people will judge if the director chose correctly.

Trailer

The costumes and backdrop look really good and keeps reminding me why I prefer historical cdramas! ^^

I bet this was a high budget production.

And at 68 episodes, I hope we are in for a treat! (It’s been a while since I’ve watched something good around this length, The Story of Minglan was one).

Would you be interested in checking out the Rebel Princess?

This is one of the best c-dramas i have ever watched. Can ‘t believe the actress zhang ziyi is 41 years old. Zhou yiwei has also done a great job. This drama made me feel really engaged. Sometimes also makes me feel bad for being single !!

Hello! Sorry to intrude …. but I find this Drama Series of The Rebel Princess very interesting! I binged watched Episode 1-45 in 3 days! And would really like to finish it, but would need to know how the find the version with English Subtitles? I watch it in Youtube. The lead Actors —Zhang Ziyi and Zhou Yiwei quite good. Their screen chemistry is very believable. I love the costumes and the fighting scenes of Zhou Yiwei —– very graceful movements!

Appreciate your help in finding the versions with English Subtitles soon. Thank you!

Same with me, this is better than the more popular c dramas w the younger actors. both lead actors here displayed great acting. i like it that the male lead is not a perfect looking man – but nonetheless he is oozing with charima.
