I like to think my Feng Feng is not being forced to do this project by his Anhui management team, and that he actually wants to do it. But Anhui Television owes me if it turns out to be a chemistry-less mismatch. My Li Yi Feng is currently in Taiwan doing costume fittings and pre-production work for Happy Michelin Kitchen (幸福三顆星), the third and last drama in the Happy trilogy (the first being Happy and Love Forever, the second being Sunny Happiness). Blue Lan and Cheryl Yang have been confirmed as the leads (see post here).
Normally I think it’s great exposure for Feng Feng to do a TW-C drama with a solid cast. However, this means he will have played the second male lead in ALL THREE Happy dramas. Like, WTF?! I am not pleased. This boy is leading man material already, and I don’t recall any actor ever being the second lead for an entire trilogy of dramas.
I know some people who saw him in Sunny Happiness were like “buh, why is Lu Shen suddenly Mike He‘s brother in this drama?”, so it was already a bit of a stretch to see him in both dramas. To tack on a third may melt my brain. While I want to see him back onscreen desperately, I don’t want him to keep losing to girl and breaking my heart with his devilish smile and wonderfully natural acting.
The picture on the left is Feng Feng as Xian Yun Chao in Sunny Happiness, and the picture on the right is Feng Feng as Lu Shen in Happy and Love Forever. He was sooooo cute in both dramas. I guess I ought to see the bright side of this – this means Feng Feng is in Taiwan for the next few months! *plots to go stalk him during the filming* Happy Three Stars starts shooting soon, now that leading man Blue Lan just wrapped his movie Eat Man Drink Woman 2. Expect the drama to air in early 2012.
