“杀” means “to kill,” and “青” is the color “green.” This term literally means “degreening,” a process to treat fresh tea leaves. The term was also used to depict a method some 2,000 years ago of baking bamboo slips in preparation for them to be written on. Today, however, it is often used to describe wrapping up a film shoot or clinching a project in the general sense.
Nǐ xǐhuān de nǚshén yòu yǒu xīnpiān shāqīng。
Your idol just had a new movie shot.
Nǐ shì shuō liúyìfēi ma?
Do you mean Crystal Liu?
Shì a, bùguò hòuqī zhìzuò kěnéng hái yào jǐgè yuè, yīnwèi dàngqī pái zài míngnián xiàtiān。
Sure. But post-production may take a few months, and the film is set to be released next summer.
