Am I the only one who hasn't seen Ode to Joy 欢乐颂 because its cast of gorgeous ladies Liu Tao, Olivia Wang Zi Wen, Jiang Xin, Yang Zi (Legend of Chusen) and Qiao Xin are everywhere these days especially with the sequel coming up this year.
Over on the men's side are Zu Feng, Wang Kai, Zhang Lu, Jin Dong and Yang Shuo who understandably take a backseat under the limelight in a show that is ultimately about celebrating women. For fans of When A Snail Falls In Love, Wang Kai and Olivia Wang play a couple again though they were actually a couple here first.
The 42-episode is a 2016 Chinese TV series produced by Nirvana in Fire's Hou Hong Liang based on a novel by He Nai 阿耐. It tells the story of five women from different backgrounds who go from being complete strangers to friends and close confidantes after living together on the 22nd floor of Ode to Joy.
