Bu Bu Jing Qing <步步惊情>, sister production to the 2011 hit series Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步惊心>, is scheduled to premiere its first episode on Zhejiang STV’s China Blue Theater lineup on April 22, 2014. This will be Bu Bu Jing Qing’s first exclusive nation-wide premiere.
Produced by Chinese Entertainment Shanghai, Bu Bu Jing Qing stars Nicky Wu (吳奇隆), Cecilia Liu (刘诗诗), Ye Zuxin (叶祖新), Sun Yizhou (孙艺洲), and Annie Liu (劉心悠). It is loosely classified as a sequel to Bu Bu Jing Xin, a time-traveling drama about a young woman who was transported back in time to watch the rise of Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty. While the backbone of Bu Bu Jing Xin’s storyline focused on political intrigue, Bu Bu Jing Qing will instead take its main leads to the dark side of modern-day workplace politics.
Production for Bu Bu Jing Qing began in early March 2013 and ended four months later. Reports circulated in early March of this year claimed that Bu Bu Jing Qing was slated to premiere on Hunan TV – the same station that broadcast Bu Bu Jing Xin – on March 9, 2014, but the rumor was quickly debunked by official sources.
Bu Bu Jing Xin, the series that shot Nicky Wu, Cecilia Liu, and Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) to unprecedented fame, also brought Nicky and Cecilia together. Bu Bu Jing Qing is seen as a reunion for the real-life couple and its premiere announcement has netizens buzzing.
