Trailer & Stills Released for Bu Bu Jing Xin Movie Adaptation Starring Ivy Chen, Tony Yang & Shawn Dou
^Ivy Chen as the heroine
A movie adaptation of Bu Bu Jing Xin has just released its first trailer and some stills! The movie stars Ivy Chen, Tony Yang, and Shawn Dou. Unfortunately all we know about their roles is that Ivy plays the role of Ruo Xi–we don’t know which princes Tony & Shawn are playing, darn it. The movie has yet to announce an official air date, but supposedly it will be released sometime later this year. It has already finished filming and is in post-production.
The Bu Bu Jing Xin movie adaptation has been rather low key for the past year or so. I first heard about it in June 2014, but back then there wasn’t much buzz about it and I was verrrry skeptical. I felt that a BBJX movie version was necessary, especially after the Bu Bu Jing Qing sequel flopped. I feared that it would be overkill.
BUT…now that I know who’s in the main cast, I’m way more optimistic about this movie version! I think Ivy Chen can do the lead role justice, and I am SO SO ready to see Tony Yang as a prince. I can totally see him as 13th, 14th, or 8th prince. I’m not so sure if I can picture him as 4th prince though. O_O If you can’t picture Tony bald, here you go:
Yes, I think he pulls it off. 😛 I haven’t seen the other male lead, Shawn Dou, in any other dramas or movies before, so I’m not sure which prince he’d suit best. The trailer itself feels whimsical and fairy-tale like, but it also has hints of a darker side to the story. There will be some discrepancies between the movie and the drama/novel versions of the story; for instance, already we see that the heroine time slips in a different way than in the drama. This trailer has gotten me really curious about the movie, I’m hoping for a longer trailer to be released soon! >_<
So, what do you think about the casting? Which princes do you think Tony & Shawn will play?
