Happy Michelin Kitchen Premieres Next Week on Lunar New Year

Premiering exactly one year after it’s predecessor drama Sunny HappinessHappy Michelin Kitchen will finally hit the airwaves next week on January 23rd after finishing filming last year. HMK is the third and final drama in the Happy Trilogy, and continuing with tradition this one has boatload of cameos from stars of the first two dramas. This time the leads are Cheryl Yang and Blue Lan, and the drama has shades of Coffee Prince but with a completely different plot progression beyond the initial set up of guy thinks girl is a guy because girl dresses like one.

Truth be told, I doubt HMK will win my heart the same way SH unexpectedly did last year, so I’m watching primarily to see the cameos, and hopefully the drama turns out not bad. The production did a trailer dump last week, so have a look to see if it strikes your fancy. Second leads Wu Jian Fei and Ying Er look so far so good in the trailers. It’s nice to see a production not try to turn Ying Er into an ahjumma and allow her natural prettiness to grace the screen. I hope the two second leads getogether because they look cute together.

  1. There’s something about Blue Lan that just makes me swoon. Like you said in your other post, he’s so… MANLY compared to other TW leading men. A different kind of appeal. (Kind of like Jang Hyuk, though Hyukkie’s a way better actor.) He does play hateful characters a lot though. I really liked him in Easy Fortune Happy Life, until the last third when he got all creepy and schizo. The drama got weird in general at the end though.

    It would be nice to see him play a nicer guy here… not so sure that will happen though, judging from the previews.

    Sunny Happiness
    main pairing: Mike He and Janine Chang

    Happy and Love Forever
    main pairing: Ming Dao and Annie Chen.

    They’re both fully subbed on viki if you want to watch them. The plots are completely different though, though parts of the same cast are used in all three( as completely different characters though.)
    i.e. Li Yi Feng plays two completely different characters in the first and second dramas( not sure who he plays in the third though.. or if he’s even in the third).
