Ariel Lin and Zhang Bin Bin Start Filming Period C-drama Legend of Hua Bu Qi

I’m thrilled that TW-actress Ariel Lin is making her first period drama in 5 years after Prince of Lan Ling in 2013. I wrote about her reported casting for this drama earlier and now filming has started for Legend of Hua Bu Qi (literal title translation I am Hua Bu Qi). The earlier casting reports did not name a male lead but it will be C-actor Zhang Bin Bin (Vin Zhang) who was a supporting actor for the hit Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles Peach Blossoms as the Ghost Lord. Hua Bu Qi is about a pair of marriage swindlers in modern day who fall off a cliff and time travel to the past where she becomes a beggar girl and he’s the heir to a powerful family. They meet again 13 years later and fall in love against the backdrop of their new identities.
