Since the filming of Bu Bu Jing Qing <步步惊情>, also dubbed as the modern sequel to Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步惊心>, started on March 2, Chinese Entertainment Shanghai has kept the filming details under tight wraps.
Aside from several blurry onset photos which were leaked online in the last three days and a short synopsis regarding the office drama circulating, there was little information available to satisfy eager fans who have waited for the sequel to film for the last two years.
On March 5, Chinese Entertainment Shanghai released the first set of character stills for Bu Bu Jing Qing. Included were photos of returning cast members, Cecilia Liu (刘诗诗), Nicky Wu (吴奇隆), Damian Lau (刘松仁), and Ye Zuxin (叶祖). New additions of Sun Yizhou (孫藝洲), Jiang Jingfu (蔣勁夫), and Sean Chen (陳翔) lend fresh faces to the drama.
One of the poster captions read, “If one day you were to leave here, I will go to your world to find you,” referring to the continuation of the love story between Cecilia and Nicky in the modern era.
Currently in a management dispute with Chinese Entertainment Shanghai, Lin Gengxin (林更新) was reported to have been invited to appear in the sequel. However, it is unclear whether Lin Gengxin will be filming Bu Bu Jing Xin as he was not featured in the released character stills.
Filming in Tianjin, Bu Bu Jing Qing is expected to complete shooting by June 2013.
