Holy cuteness alert! The first stills are here from the production of upcoming Korean Bu Bu Jing Xin and it’s courtesy of the supremely eye candy filled script reading session. Bobogyungsim: Ryeo (Bu Bu Jing Xin: Splendor) won’t air until the second half of the year (I’m guessing September 2016) after being fully pre-produced and having gotten SARFT approval so the drama can air simultaneously in Korea and China. So the script reading does feel eons early but makes sense as a period drama like this takes longer to produce and this one will be rich and dense if it follows the original source novel by writer Tong Hua.
Can I say how much I LOVE the script reading stills – from leading lady IU‘s cheshire cat grin at being surrounded by so much man candy to the male leads posing together as the princes while holding up their princely numbers with their hands. I’m not sure who is playing 1 and 9, but the main princes are Hong Jong Hyun as 3, Lee Jun Ki as 4, Kang Ha Neul as 8, Baekhyun as 10, Nam Joo Hyuk as 13, and Ji Soo as 14. The male leads of the C-drama cast also took tons of such brotherly pics behind the scenes, so this totally bodes well in terms of emulating something the first adaptation did right, namely flower boy bonding behind the camera with tons of sibling rivalry and bromance in front of the camera.
