It was just announced that a Chinese version of the iconic American show Friends will be launching online in February. But how many similarities will Planet Homebuddies have?

10. “The lead character Jerry is depressed after breaking up with his girlfriend and losing his advertising business. To get over his misfortune, he decides to rent a large loft with two good friends, Andy, an IT specialist and Sean, a DJ.”

So, OK. Just to refresh your memory: The older sister will be a Monica. Maybe Bingxue will be a Rachel? (But will she have the same “Rachel haircut”?!) And Vivian, the art curator, will be a Phoebe.
12. Yet to-be-seen similarities include whether or not Vivian will revive the “Smelly Cat” song, whether the Joey phrase, “How you doin?!” will come into play and if Molly will be a former fat kid.
