The Year of Happiness and Love (Chinese: 那一年的幸福時光; pinyin: Na Yi Nian De Xing Fu Shi Guang) is a 2009 Taiwanese drama starring James Wen and Amber Kuo. It was produced by Sanlih E-Television.

The series was first broadcast in Taiwan on free-to-air Taiwan Television (TTV) (台視) from 7 August 2009 to 1 January 2010, every Friday at 22:00 to 23:35 and cable TV Sanlih E-Television (三立電視) on 8 August 2009 to 2 January 2010, every Saturday at 22:30.

The Year of Happiness and Love was nominated in 2010 for four awards at the 45th Golden Bell Awards, including Best Actress for Amber Kuo and Best Actor for James Wen.[1]


Jiang Chen Bo (James Wen) is the typical loser: He is not fashionable or charming and has no money, girlfriend or respect. Then, an out of the blue promotion changes his world. Suddenly, he becomes the beacon to his father's rather uneventful life, the love bridge between his elite boss and his innocent younger sister, the moneytree for his gold-digging lover. However, things that come easily, go easily. The news of him quitting his job caused his lover to leave him, his father to have a stroke, and his sister to break off contact with his ex-boss. He tries to come up with plans to make everything better, only to have them backfire on him. But, family is always there to help him pick up the pieces.
