Just as the C-ent world is exploding with news of Nicky Wu and Liu Shishi going public with their relationship, Mayday has released the full-length main theme to Bu Bu Jing Qing. No doubt there will be a bit of a frenzy (all that free positive publicity!) about the couple and the upcoming drama thanks to the news, but it doesn’t take any shine away from this awesome song.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been interested in awards ceremony in Tw-ent, because I’m not that invested in Tw-ent as I used to be. So I chanced upon the Golden Bell Awards (and only because Kangxi was preempted to air this). I stumbled upon this.
It brought me way back to my first Taiwanese idol drama. No kidding. That’s the one that started me off. I don’t think I’d be able to sit through the entire thing again unless I’m doing it with one of my old friends, who shared her enthusiasm for the show. The fact that it revolved around basketball (and god knows I’m a sucker for sports-themed dramas) probably did it for me. We’d have a good time doing commentary on it, I would think. With some alcohol, anything should be possible. I still know all the words to that song, too. So even if 5566 has disbanded now, there’s nothing to stop us from hitting the karaoke, eh?
The other amazing thing is that it’s performed by Yoga Lin, whom I rather adore. It’s like the cherry on top, really. Thank you, Golden Bell, you have made my day.
It would be this song.
I have no intention of watching Bu Bu Jing Qing at all, yet when I see that Mayday’s Ashin has wrote and sung the opening theme, I feel oddly attracted to this pile of hot mess. Never mind that I don’t know any of the actors in it apart from the ones from Bu Bu Jing Xin (and that’s just Princes 4 and 10, Ruoxi, Ruolan and the emperor). The lyrics are so beautiful, it just sums up everything what to expect from the sequel – the continuation of the epic love story in the modern day. Oh yes, in that minute and a half of gorgeous music, even Bu Bu Jing Qing seems like it deserves a chance.
Common sense is shouting at me. If you like the song, replay that damn song a million times. Don’t subject yourself to hours of hair-pulling frustration just so that you can hear that short opening theme again and again. No, you can rise above this. Remember that epic snorefest you sat through just for the sake of the soundtrack? Never again.
Okay, but can they release the full song now?
