Following in the recent trend of vintage-style stills, Unparalleled Happiness 欢乐无双 has decided to release their own.  This drama stars Jiang Kaitong, Wei Qianxiang, Xiong Naijin, and Zhai Tianlin.   Unparalleled Happiness sells itself as a comedic take on the mystery genre set in the Ming dynasty. It’ll be the second ancient series for the director the Prince of Lanling (Feng Shaofeng version), which explains the two male leads.
