George Hu returns in family drama Happiness Meets Rainbow

Happiness Meets Rainbow is his upcoming Chinese drama. The name makes me giggle: Happiness Meets Rainbow equals Unicorns in my book. Lol. It follows the sole bread winner of a family (Yedda Chen Yan Fei) as she juggles the responsibilities of putting food on the table and the games involved with the three men she encounters.
