Eternal Happiness is a 2002 TVB television drama from Hong Kong based on a short story of the same name by Qing dynasty novelist Chen Ruisheng. Eternal Happiness was produced by Poon Kar Tak and edited by Tong King Ping. The original broadcast was on the TVB Jade network with 45-minute episodes airing five days a week from August 5 to September 13 in 2002. Eternal Happiness was the highest rated drama in Hong Kong for the year 2002 eclipsing some other major productions such as Golden Faith and Where The Legend Begins. The formula of pairing up Raymond Lam and Michelle Ye paid dividends to TVB with both of them displayed great chemistry and turned on wonderful performance. Alongside with Tavia Yeung, Michelle is said to be Raymond's next most compatible partner on-screen which yielded another drama pairing them up together; Lofty Waters Verdant Bow. Soon, the RayMich phenomena died out when Michelle Ye left TVB for ATV and subsequently to the silver screen. On the other hand, Raymond continues to provide the spark with his other on-screen partners such as Linda Chung, Tavia Yeung and Charmaine Sheh. Once again, Eternal Happiness was the highest rated drama in 2002 with 41 average rating points peaking at 45. It was easily placed first in the ranking that year
