Milking the cash cow, of course. And because you guys didn’t shed enough suicidal tears the first round. 😛 But why would you call it a sequel if the storyline screams I am not thy brother! Stop clinging!? Moreover, half the cast members are significantly missing. Might as well give it a fresh name. Kevin Cheng and Yuan Hong are busy laughing it off in Hua Xu Yin, with the former looking odd and sporting blue highlights. But the two are in talks for guest appearances, so yay? Han Dong is in almost every big productions but not here. After his dispute with Tangren, you won’t be seeing 14th Prince Lin Geng Xin either.
The synopsis of Bu Bu Jing Qing (步步惊情): Zhang Xiao is a white collar female worker. By chance, Zhang Xiao finds work at “Zhen Tian”, one of China’s most famous internet companies. Like any other ordinary newcomer to the business industry, Zhang Xiao is ostracised by her fellow colleagues. Luckily, her superior Yin Zheng sees her as a talented worker and helps her avoid difficult situations. Slowly, Yin Zheng and Zhang Xiao develop unspoken feelings for each other, but before it can progress any further, a gentle and considerate Kang Si Han enter’s Zhang Xiao’s world. It turns out that both men are candidates to the successor of this company and Zhang Xiao suddenly finds herself in the centre of a power struggle. [Credit: Wiki / Baidu]
It sounds like Secrets Hidden in Time with Wallace Chung and Janine Chang, except LSS’ character doesn’t throw away her spine.
Nicky Wu as Yin Zheng. Definitely look good in the suits.
Liu Shi Shi as Zhang Xiao
You’d think Tangren’s hottest female star would get a better haircut than this. Matronly. Why?
Third leg of the Love Triangle is Sun Yi Zhou as Kang Si Han. Big Ceo’s son.
10th Prince Ye Zu Xin as Jack
Looking adorable in his office wardrobe + glasses. But the red can get a tad too much.
Annie Liu as Ma Yi Nuo. She has always strike me as pretty and elegant. The stylist didn’t bomb her. Whew!
Ye Qing as Meng Xin Yi (Colleague with Zhang Xiao)
Yico Tseng as Ling Dang (androgynous rocker)
Chen Xiang as Huang Di (Zhang Xiao’s former BF)
Jiang Jing Fu as Kang Si Yu (Another Kang brother)
Now that I think back, I am not really fond of Modern Cdramas. Any recommendations?
