Goodbye My Princess fans and author enraged over deleted scenes

Goodbye My Princess 东宫 has amassed a solid fanbase since premiering on Valentine's Day. While the show has been praised for having a good script, director and cast that gave a faithful drama adaptation based on Fei Wo Si Cun's popular novel, viewers have grown increasingly tired of the changes post-production with the biggest complaint directed at streaming site Youku.

Many noticed that as the series progressed, the episode which were usually over 40 minutes got shorter as Youku seemed to have cut out chunks of the story. One episode was only a little over 35 minutes. Things came to a boil on White Day with episodes 37-40. Scenes like the cheek bite and princess hug between the main couple that were shown in the trailer and highly anticipated by book fans went missing.

The bad editing also resulted in parts of the story making little sense. Fans are also disappointed that the male lead seemed to be deviating from the novel in the latter part of the drama. Instead of ruthless, he has become uncharacteristically soft toward the second lead.

Today, Fei Wo Si Cun shared her sentiments on weibo by speaking in metaphors that ended with a curt, "Don't mess with the scenes (莫乱剪)." Fans are demanding that an uncut version of the drama be released. No official response has been given so far, but with only ten or so episodes left, let's hope the show gets its act together.

  1. If they did this then for sure they gonna change the ending! They should have just been faithful to the novel. Geeze is it that hard then what the point of making it a drama adaptation from the novel if they ain't being fathiful! Like MOST well nearly all other IP dramas be similar to the novel would be the title and the character name while the storyline is different. Like might as well not call it an adaption! Sorry for the rant! XD

  2. Thank you! I'm glad people were as upset about the edits as I was! Why on earth would anyone cut out scenes that they probably know every viewer is anticipating?! Please release an uncut version!

  6. The intensity is already slipping with the drag out to 52 episodes, now they appear to be cutting the scenes that keep us interested despite the lagging pace from episode 28 to 40. Moreover, if the love between the two is not one of a kind and epic, then the stakes aren't there to bear out the tragedy. I feel sorry for Sese too, he's been a total jerk, but don't weaken the main romance with him loving her too because I suspect that's the one thing we viewers would find unforgivable in him and in the story
