It is the first Chinese musical drama, which will feature Tao’s songs. Filming begins June 2017 (after Tao’s Promise Tour) and will take place in Los Angeles and Beijing.

      1. SO EXCITED! I loved the first season of Ode to Joy. Although if they are following the novel, this season will be very sad…


        1. Oooh did not know that this was based off of a novel. Interesting.
          The trailer looks very emotional already…CAN’t WAIT!!
          It’s been awhile since I’m this excited for a drama! Hahah


  1. Am i in the minority when I say the more Meteor Garden remakes the better? It’s just such an enjoyable watch, I’d look forward to see what the new cast can do.


  2. Taiwan is remaking Meteor Garden? It is actually a welcome addition, if they pull it off well. I don’t mind seeing some fresh faces. I do hope that they removed some of the most cliched tropes and breathe new life into this proven formula!


  3. Hold up, does this mean Ode to Joy 2 is out already? Where can I watch it?

    A musical drama? sounds interesting

    There are already enough remakes of Meteor Garden, no more please

    What the hell did they make Zhang Ruo Yun wear?

    I miss Liying too, also I need to get my hands on one of those teas she is endorsing with Yang Yang, the bottles are adorable. Why can’t my dream OTP be in a drama together? Somebody better make it happen.


    1. May 11th! I made a mistake, it’s corrected now 🙂

      I am intrigued, hopefully it’s good. Fingers crossed!

      Haha, who knows?! It’s hard keeping up with the latest fashion trend

      I miss her so much!! I want to film another drama so I will be able to see more of her. Yang Yang and Liying is my dream OTP too!!! Let’s hope that they get cast in a drama together. Liying has said that she would like to work with him!
