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 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?
We continue with Tang Jun reflecting on the person he was when he first met Xiao Jie and how he is a better person now, because of her. He’s never been so happy before. Awww. Is this going to end in a proposal?
Tears well up in Xiao Jie’s eyes as she recalls their first encounter in London. (Gotta give Qiao En credit for her crying.) She thanks him for showing her what it means to love someone. She hopes that they can spend their future together. Tang Jun wipes the tears away and signals for Uncle Zhou to bring something in. It’s a little scroll served up on a platter. Tang Jun tells her that he’s also been working on a secret little project while away in London.
He is planning to set up a Peter Rabbit museum in Huang Hai Phase 2, which is the surprise he’s been trying to keep from her. This is where I don’t really get if he’s officially proposing or if it’s just a grand gesture, but she embraces him with tears of joy. To be honest, I’m not really that bothered if they get married or not. All I care is that they know how much they mean to each other and that they can overcome everything together.
