For a show that boasts a very charismatic pairing led by Ariel Lin and rising star Vin Zhang Binbin, Legend of Hua Buqi 小女花不弃 has been unusually low-key since day one. Filming which lasted three months has wrapped for more than a week already and there are still no official stills other than a peek behind-the-scenes through the photos that Ariel Lin uploaded on social media. The cast can be seen enjoying their last week of filming in the deserts of Yinchuan. It’s impossible to see their costumes clearly as everything is blurred out. I don’t know why this production is oh-so-secretive, but color me intrigued.
Ariel Lin shared that after filming has wrapped, she hasn’t quite gotten used to returning to daily life yet. The love, hate and till death do us part moments in the life of Buqi would always cross her mind and resurface in her dreams. Her character is a woman who had it quite hard, but always manages to find her way out of danger.
I wish we knew more, but I’m banking on the fact that it’s gotta be pretty awesome considering that Ariel Lin chose it as her comeback drama.
