All scenes shot by Gavin Gao (高云翔) in The Legend of Ba Qing <巴清传> has been deleted.
In March 2018, Gavin was arrested for sexual assault in Australia and is currently in prison awaiting trial. As a result of his scandal, the broadcast for The Legend of Ba Qing was put on hold. Gavin is the male lead of the show, which also stars the show’s producer, Fan Bingbing (范冰冰).
Sources have said that The Legend of Ba Qing’s cancellation has resulted in over 800 million yuan of losses for Fan Bingbing and her production company.
But not all hope is lost. It has been reported that actor Li Chen (李晨) has stepped in to replace Gavin in re-shoots for the show. The premiere for The Legend of Ba Qing has now been pushed back to July 2018.
