Airing time is now confirmed for the much anticipated K-drama adaptation of well known Chinese time-traveling romance novel Bu Bu Jing Xin ((Startling with Each Step). It’s been four years since C-dramas adapted BBJX into the drama version with the English title of Scarlet Heart and starring Nicky Wu and now real life wife Liu Shi Shi. The K-version called Bobogyungsim: Ryeo (Bu Bu Jing Xin: Ryeo – short for Goryeo) stars Lee Jun Ki, IU, and Kang Ha Neul as the main leads, with the other princes being Hong Jong Hyun, Ji Soo, Nam Joo Hyuk, and Baekhyun. The drama has been filming since February and getting a confirmed airing date means it’s likely wrapping up production and can submit the finished product to Chinese authorities for approval to live-air in China. K-BBJX will broadcast on SBS on August 29th, taking the Mon-Tues time slot after Doctors with Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won.
With K-BBJX inked as an early fall show for SBS, it will go up against the midway point of teen sageuk Moonlight Drawn by Clouds airing on KBS and the tail run of Monster on MBC and then taking on plane crash drama Gaia which follows Monster.
