15 Jan – Chinese Entertainment Shanghai, the production studio of the smash hit mainland Chinese television drama, "Bu Bu Jing Xin" has confirmed that a sequel to the drama is finally in the making.
However, as reported on Popular Asians website, rather than making a direct sequel of the drama, "Bu Bu Jing Xin 2" is reported to be a reboot of the main characters in a new storyline, and was renamed "Bu Bu Jing Qing".
In the new modern instalment, the drama revolves around the story of a white-collar worker Zhang Xiao who is hired to work at one of mainland China's largest companies, the Zhentian Internet Group, in Shanghai. Zhang was then ostracised by her envious colleagues, but got the attention of her boss Yin Zheng. Zhang and Yin's relationship are then tested when she meets the high executive, Kang Sihan.
Nonetheless, other than the main protagonist's name, "Zhang Xiao", linking the two productions together as one franchise, the plot in "Bu Bu Jing Qing" will not follow events that occurred in the final episode of "Bu Bu Jing Xin".
Cecilia Liu is confirmed to reprise her role as Zhang Xiao while Nicky Wu also confirmed his starring appearance. However, another original cast, Kevin Cheng has yet to make his confirmation.
Chinese Entertainment Shanghai disclosed that if everything is settled, the drama is scheduled for filming after Chinese New Year.
