The immensely popular time-traveling drama Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步驚心> recently released an alternate ending, in which the modern version of “Fourth Prince” (Nicky Wu 吳奇隆) is revealed to be the driver of the car that crashed into Zhang Xiao (Cecilia Liu 劉詩詩) and sent her back to the Qing Dynasty as “Ruoxi.” In the wake of this new ending, a Tangren staff member also confirmed that Bu Bu Jing Qing <步步驚情>, the highly anticipated modern-era reboot, is scheduled to begin filming in Tianjin on March 2.

Bu Bu Jing Qing will tell the story of businesswoman Zhang Xiao, who enters the workforce of a large-scale company but initially finds herself ostracized in the workplace. To her surprise, she gains the attention of her boss, Yin Zheng, setting off sparks of love from both sides. The kind and considerate Kang Sihan, however, also enters her world, and Zhang Xiao is forced into the center of the two men’s furious trade war as a result.

In a recent interview, Tangren producer Karen Tsai (蔡藝儂) revealed that although Bu Bu Jing Qing will integrate elements of business competition, the main plot will still revolve around love. She also added that the love story would not be of the “so-called sadomasochistic” type.

Ever since Nicky Wu, Cecilia Liu, “Tenth Prince” Ye Zuxin (葉祖新), and “Kangxi” Damian Lau (劉松仁) were confirmed to appear in Bu Bu Jing Qing, netizens have been wildly deliberating over the rest of the lineup. While it has been confirmed that “Eighth Prince” Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) will not participate due to scheduling conflicts, no official news has been heard about “Fourteenth Prince” Lin Gengxin (林更新), who is currently mired in a dispute with his management company, Tangren. It has also been rumored that mainland Chinese actor Sun Yizhou (孫藝洲), known for his role in the iPartment <愛情公寓> series, may be joining the team as well. As always, Tangren insists on remaining tight-lipped and said that they will announce the entire cast list when it is finalized.

    Sounds interesting! I’m still looking forward to it since I really liked Nicky-Cecilia pairing. :/

    I did not see the alt ending. Any links? I did hear of a filmed alt ending. And this article is misleading to suggest the sequel is a true sequel when it is not a sequel but a new story, sort of rebranding with the same cast. BBJX’s story has ended.

      Funn,
      My oversight, should have included the video in the article regarding the alternate ending for “Bu Bu Jing 2”. It’s now been added.

        Everything is the same except that scene where he looked in shock having hit her. But it is so disconnected from the last scene of him walking away I feel happy that THAT was cut out because it wouldn’t make sense.

        Oh Jayne, you made me cry again watching that ending. I weep for 4th prince, not her. She deserves to suffer for her own lifetime as he had suffered in his own lifetime.

        Funn,
        Wonder if “Bu Bu Jing Qing” will be able to move audiences in the same way. The synopsis so far does not sound like a tragic romance, as Tangren may be eager to give Nicky and Cecilia a happy ending that fans crave?

        I don’t think the series will be aiming for a tragic end so I don’t think the audience will be moved to suicidal tears for the last 10 episodes or so. But I feel if this series is aiming for romance like how K-drama are these days, it will spark another wave; this time perhaps potentially a wave of hopeful romanticism. The storyline points to that and it is less punishing (thank goodness!) and I welcome that. I can imagine how handsome Nicky Wu will be in his suits and how he can play the silent defender of the poor heroine, ala Mr Darcy. In fact why not just adapt Pride And Prejudice into Asian version? I am however wary of China’s modern series. Already the dressing is appalling. But hopefully get to hear real voices!

        Funn,
        The first photos to emerge from “Bu Bu Jing Qing” does not look very flattering in the style department. The romantic sparks should be there and hopefully Nicky will be portraying another intense male character.

        On the other hand, Yang Mi looks quite ravishing in Sheng Xia Wan Qing Tian < 盛夏晚晴天>.

        Yang Mi always look ravishing in photos except when it comes to the actual acting, she has the same non moving expression; that doubting bored look that seems forever frozen by cynicism. But since she is best friends to so many others, I am sure in real life she is a lovely girl.

      Yeah, true that. And also, the modern plot seems cliche. The usual ‘she gets bullied but boss saves her each time’ kind of thing. Usually, sequel has a lot to live up to, and most failed to do so. I hope this won’t kill the original BBJX.

        true. the plot is ugly and cliche and without the wonderful original cast of kevin, yuan hong and lin geng xin this bbjx feels empty! will feel sad if this killed the success of the originals and the hardwork of the original’s cast!

        kevin will still allocate time for a guest appearance, but a guest is still only a guest.

      I don’t think so and there is way more to a series than just the cast. I don’t find the plot sounding so bad and everyone should give it a chance instead of judge it so quickly.

      Hope that they will release the full cast list soon and it would be great if new members will join the cast.

        suit yourself. for me even without including the fact that the original casts are not around, the plot alone is so cliche just like any other idol drama.

        Well then just don’t watch it when it comes out. It is as simple as that..

        I don’t mind replacing Cecilia with Sun Li. Or with Tiffany Tang.

    I’d rather it not be called a sequel. To me, it’s just not the same without the main five..

    I’m agreed with Sel_fi_wu, without Kevin Cheng it won’t be the same, bit disappointed.

    i’m confused. so is this BBJQ is the second sequel (continuation) of BBJX ? or is this BBJQ is only a sequel that the plot and main story is like BBJX and have nothing to do with BBJX only the actors is the same ? i’m confused…
    and actually i sooo hope lin geng xin , yuan hong , and kevin cheng also star at BBJQ.
