Happy Monday everyone!
While not exactly THE Joy of Life news we’ve all been waiting for, it’s mighty exciting to have much of the cast back together again for new drama My Heroic Husband 赘婿 which was just announced today. Adapted from the novel of the same name by author Ceng Dengke under the pen name Fennu de Xiangjiao, the original is filled with time travelling shenanigans as a financial big wig gets thrown back in time and into the body of a rich merchant’s rather insignificant son-in-law.
In My Heroic Husband, Guo Qilin and Song Yi will switch gears from their Joy of Life roles as the Fan siblings to star in this drama as husband and wife. Song Yi plays Su Tan’er, who despite being a woman was elected to become the heiress to the House of Su for her smarts and unique insights, while her good for nothing but secretly a math genius Joy of Life younger brother Guo Qilin plays her husband Ning Yi. That’s quite a shake up isn’t it especially if you’ve gotten so used to them playing siblings in JoL. Some Netizens have even gone so far as to comment that Guo Qilin’s image and comedic temperament doesn’t quite match what they have in mind for Ning Yi. But let’s give the man a chance shall we?
Course it wouldn’t be a JoL reunion sans the Fan patriarch Gao Shuguang and their eldest brother (and his faithful sidekick) now would it, because Zhang Ruoyun and Tian Yu have also been roped in to guest star in the series together with JoL alum Hai Yitian.
Angelina Jiang Yiyi,Shang Yuxian, Zhang Songwen and Zhu Zhu are also set to feature in the drama.
