YesAsia Editorial Description

Based on the popular novel by Tong Hua, the blockbuster period series Bu Bu Jing Xin (a.k.a. Startling By Each Step) is the most highly anticipated Chinese drama of 2011. The latest series from renowned director/producer Lee Kwok Lap, Bu Bu Jing Xin steps back in time to the romantic and political upheavals of the Qing court. A frequent star of Lee Kwok Lap dramas, Cecilia Liu Shishi plays a young woman who jumps back in time to the reign of Kangxi, and gets drawn into the ascension struggle among the royal princes. Both a heartrending romance and a historical drama, Bu Bu Jing Xin uses its fantasy premise and fictional heroine to observe and affect well-known figures and episodes in Qing Dynasty history.

Bu Bu Jing Xin has inspired a fervent following for its outstanding cast of royal princes. Taiwan actor-singer Nicky Wu stars as the stone-faced 4th Prince who eventually rises to the throne as Yongzheng, while TVB actor Kevin Cheng, collaborating with Lee Kwok Lap again 12 years after The Legendary Siblings, is the genteel 8th Prince destined for tragedy. The other members of the royal family are Han Dong as the scheming 9th Prince, Ye Zuxin as the simple-minded 10th Prince, Lee Kwok Lap regular Yuan Hong as the unbridled 13th Prince, and newcomer Lin Gengxin as the loyal 14th Prince. Veteran Hong Kong actor Damian Lau reigns over all as Emperor Kangxi.

After an argument with her boyfriend, 25-year-old Zhang Xiao (Cecilia Liu) rushes out into the street, and gets electrocuted in an accident. When she regains consciousness, she finds herself in the Qing Dynasty. She is now teenaged Ruo Xi, the willful younger sister of the 8th Prince's consort (Annie Liu). Ruo Xi enters the Forbidden City, and becomes a trusted servant of the Emperor (Damian Lau) as the years pass by. Knowing what happens to everyone historically, Ruo Xi hopes to stay detached from palace politics, but she gets romantically entangled with both the 8th Prince (Kevin Cheng) and the 4th Prince (Nicky Wu), whose competition for the throne leads inevitably to danger and tragedy. Staying true to her love and friendship with each prince, Ruo Xi struggles to take control of her own heart and destiny in the Forbidden City, where every step could be a matter of life and death.

作為一個朝九晚五的普通白領,除了模樣長得挺招人喜愛,現年二十多歲的張曉(劉詩詩飾演)和周圍其他忙忙碌碌的都市人基本沒什麼區別。那一天,張曉的命運被一場車禍徹底改寫。她眼看著那輛失控的車子將自己的靈魂撞出了軀體,而她,既沒有進醫院也沒有進天堂,卻是被撞進了清朝的宮廷中。就像鋪天蓋地的穿越小說裡寫的那樣,張曉的靈魂跨過時間的隧道,在一個叫馬爾泰 . 若曦的十六歲清朝女孩的體內,重生了 ……

Intricate and beautiful Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
“Not since 2003's 孝莊 and 2004's 金枝 has any Qing-era period drama been this stunning. All other Qing dramas will now have to answer to this one for screen-writing and sheer attention to detail.”

“Fantastic production values, beautiful editing, talented direction, an emotional soundtrack, a convincing cast playing dynamic characters and an intriguing plot-line that aligns quite closely to historical records, a stunningly detailed set, and breathtakingly intricate costumes. It's official. We are addicted.”

These were my very words when I raved and raved about this drama to my friends. After watching the show for a second time, I continue to stand by these words.


I went into the show expecting another disappointing idol drama a la Gong. I was given one of the most heart-breaking interpretations of the infamous power struggle among Kangxi's sons for the throne. This drama was based on the novels by Tong Hua, whose beautiful prose was transferred with stunning results onto the screen. What touched me the most was the dynamicism of the characters -- each one of them had very distinct internal conflicts and every single one left a lasting impression. The characters only get better with repeat viewings.

This drama is also one of the better ones in terms of portraying the power struggle -- often the Eighth Prince and the Crown Prince are portrayed as useless, and the struggle unrealistic, but the production team for this drama was very meticulous in making sure that the tension and the political battles are believable. What also touched me was the human-ness of all the characters -- something that is often overlooked in political dramas.

All-in-all, if you are looking for a pure political story, this is not one of them. What it is instead is an incredibly well-presented story of the infamous Kangxi-era power struggle wrapped in a heart-wrenching love story.

If you are a fan of period dramas this one cannot be missed.

Love it step by step Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
From my first review in Oct, 2011 till now, I've already rewatched this 4 times. :))

If you're looking for kungfu action, this is not it. Or if you wish to compare this to Palace Lockhart (Gong Part 1 with Yang Mi, Mickey He and William Feng) there is definitely differences. The only common thread are siblings rivalry because Kangxi did indeed have these princes and 4th Prince did eventually become Emperor Yong Zheng.

Nothing quite like it. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
After bemoaning the horrible script in Gong and looking for a better alternative to wipe my tainted palette, my friend convinced me to give this series a try (along with her narration because I can only understand a few words in Chinese). I was rather suspicious at first because the plot seemed similar to Gong, but a few episodes in, and I was sold. I have to say that this beats most of the other costume dramas I have seen from any country that year.

The rich and dramatic visuals, the muted color palette, and the detailed costumes were a feast for the eyes, and I found myself reviewing back certain scenes just to get in all the details. Dialogue, from what was translated for me, was poignant and meaningful and can sometimes be very sweet. I also loved the way the camera sometimes panned from one character to the next in a scene so that we could read each of their varying expressions, and though I’m not familiar with any of the actors except for Kevin Cheng (Ghetto Justice), the cast had such wonderful chemistry and camaraderie, that I felt like these people were really the characters they embodied.

It would be easier to have watched it understanding everything being said, so I do hope that the creators will consider having this series out with English Subtitles, even if it must come in a simple box to cut costs, so that those of us who are not Chinese can more thoroughly enjoy this work of art.

But until then, I’ll just keep my fingers crossed.

Interesting Premise, But, Boring! Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
Interesting premise--modern-day person back in time to the Ching dynasty. But, this premise is not well developed to capture the person's knowledge of the past to try to right some wrongs at the moment, even though she knows she can't change history. In a drama, this could be more interesting, if she tries to do just that. But none of that ! Instead....

the story meanders a lot...many insignificant and irrelevant incidents and boring dialogs...too many tea servings.....

The female lead does not act convincingly..trying hard, but does not come through.

Director and playwright are second rate.

Big build-up for the series. But, what a big disappointment to me.
