Joanne Zeng swaps out Aaron Yan and Calvin Chen for Alien Huang in latest drama "Mafia Principal"

Well, here's an interesting development. Back in the end of February of this year, the long-delayed and anticipated drama Love Buffet was about to re-start production the following month after their set was destroyed from a typhoon the previous year. Originally set to star veteran idol actress Joanne Zeng alongside Fahrenheit members Aaron Yan and Calvin Chen, Joanna eventually dropped from the drama and was later replaced by "hamburger girl" Reen Yu of Black & White fame.

Fast forward to now, and it looks like Joanna's latest drama Mafia Principal will start airing sooner than her replacement Reen Yu for Love Buffet by about half a month, where this time Joanne shifts from her former lead actress role in Love Buffet to a more supporting actress role in Mafia Principal.

Joining alongside Joanne in the supporting cast is Alien Huang, whom last appeared on the small screen in 2009's Letter 1949. The two play a possible love interest role as Joanne takes on the role of a gangster leader's daughter opposite Alien's currently unspecified role. While details are still coming out, you can check out a 30-second teaser of the drama below. The upcoming CTV drama will begin broadcasting on December 3, 2010.
