Bu Bu Jing Qing <步步惊情>, the highly anticipated modern sequel to the hit time-traveling serial Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步惊心>, officially began shooting in Tianjin, China on March 2. Starring original cast members Cecilia Liu (刘诗诗) and Nicky Wu (吳奇隆), Bu Bu Jing Qinq chronicles the life of white-collar worker Zhang Xiao, who is stuck in the midst of an internal power struggle between two high executives at a large-scale internet company.
Both “Tenth Prince” Ye Zuxin (叶祖新) and Annie Liu (劉心悠) are returning to star in major roles. On the other hand, “Fourteenth Prince” Lin Gengxin (林更新), who is currently entangled in a dispute with Bu Bu Jing Qing’s production company Tangren, will not be taking part in the reboot.
Currently filming for fantasy drama Hua Xu Yin <华胥引>, both “Eighth Prince” Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and “Thirteenth Prince” Yuan Hong (袁弘) will be unable to commit to shooting for Bu Bu Jing Qing full time. However, both actors are currently negotiating to appear in a few episodes of Bu Bu Jing Qing as billed guest stars.
On March 2, a crew member from the Bu Bu Jing Qing Tianjin set shared a photo of Cecilia and Zuxin filming a scene in an office on Weibo, making it one of the most widespread photos to currently circulate on the social media site.
On the same day, Bu Bu Jing Qing producer, Karen Tsoi (蔡 艺侬), posted a quote from the drama on her Weibo, which read, “If you are to leave this place one day, I will go to your world to find you.” The post had nearly 25,000 reblogs by fans.
Stoking fans’ excitement even further, Yuan Hong reblogged the post and wrote, “If I am to leave this world, I will happen to bring you along the way.” Cecilia reblogged Yuan Hong’s post and wrote, “If you come to my world, I will bring along Tequila.”
Currently in Dalian to finish up the last final scenes of the espionage drama Severe Winter <寒冬>, Nicky Wu will not be able to begin shooting for Bu Bu Jing Qing until March 10. Coincidentally, March 10 will be Cecilia’s 26th birthday.
