It’s not a stretch to say that Mediacorp production My Star Bride has been one of the most popular and well-received local dramas in recent years — in fact, it even started making waves in China.

So we’re pretty sure fans would be thrilled to hear that they need not say goodbye to its beloved characters Mei Fangcao (played by Chantalle Ng) and Zhong Shijie (played by Xu Bin) just yet as there is an upcoming My Star Bride telemovie in the works. It will feature other familiar faces like Edwin GohCynthia Koh, and Lin Meijiao as well.

The spinoff will also introduce viewers to a new main character called Xu Wenwu (wait, isn’t that the name of Tony Leung’s character in Shang-Chi?), Fangcao’s childhood friend from Vietnam who later develops feelings for her, creating a love triangle between them and Shijie.

And he will be played by someone who, if we’re being totally honest, we didn’t think we’d see back on television this quickly: Shane Pow, who finished serving his five-week prison sentence for drink driving in August.
