School romance drama In A Class of Her Own 云上学堂 has officially begun filming and some of you might find it very familiar. A girl who dresses up as a guy enters an academy in the hopes of helping her family make ends meet. There, she becomes friends with three handsome men. It sounds a lot like the K-drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal where the heroine played by Park Min Young encounters Mickey Yoochun, Yoo Ah In and Song Joongki.
In A Class of Her Own stars Ju Jingyi (The Legend of White Snake), Song Weilong (Untouchable Lovers), Idol Producer alumni Bi Wenjun and Wang Ruichang (The Eternal Love). We often see Ju Jingyi in beautiful ancient costumes as she is praised for her gorgeous visuals and I have to say, she pulls off a cute girly boy feel in men’s clothing.
Equally dashing are her costars. At first glance, Song Weilong reminds me of the relatable boy next door. In reality, he plays the son of an official. I don’t know why but I feel Bi Wenjun is like the rich and serious pesky brother while Wang Ruichang has that headstrong and tactless vibe going on. Wang Ruichang did make a memorable rival for Xing Zhaolin in The Eternal Love, so it’s not so far off.
If In A Class of Her Own is anything like the Korean version, this will be a fun little joyride of sweetness and laughs especially with such handsome and pretty leads. Ju Jingyi also reunites with director Zhi Lei from The Legend of White Snake.
Wow what a surprise! I've heard of the kdrama series but I never looked into it beyond the plot premise. Now that JJY's starring in this one I have to check it out!!
Ju Jingyi doesn't look convincing at all as a boy even after wearing the male costume and styling blergh. Anyone who can't tell she's a girl gotta be blind or idiot. Production team should find someone who'd look more convincing when disguising as a guy. Ni Ni in TROP are the most convincing and memorable in recent years.
Chinese dramas mostly either adapting from novel or taking story source from other countries or remaking their own classic for thousand times. This totally prove majority of their writers suck at creating original and creative content. They still have long way to go to catch up to kdrama and jdorama let alone US/ English tv shows. Kdrama and jdorama remains superior asian country when it comes to creating original and unique contents. Don't come at me to argue the otherwise if you watched mostly low quality kdrama and jdorama.
You are writing an argumentative essay for no reason lol. Nobody said Chinese dramas are better than US, Korean or Japanese dramas. The broadcast restrictions in China is enough to limit the creativity of their scriptwriters and the quality of their content.
Imo Chinese dramas' strength lies in their historical dramas, and their modern dramas pale in comparison. It has always been like this.
This is my favorite visual pairing in years.
Gotta watch the Korean version to prepare myself for this!
Is the remake sticking to the original characters' personalities? It's because I picture Wang Ruicheng more as Moon Jaeshin, though the latter was a devil-may-care character, but he was still sharp and righteous and Wang Ruicheng fits those traits.
Yes he is playing Moon Jaeshin's character.
each country has their own way of making series and what is better. China is much better in the historical and fantasy historical genre while kdrama might be better in modern drama and jdrama in slice of life. If you say Chinese drama are unoriginal, then imo you haven't looked enough. So many amazing (fantasy) historical dramas are out there and recent years even some modern drama and doing great, also the school genre is being liked nowadays. It's just a different type of story telling and film making.
and other countries also use content of other countries, for example Hwayugi (A Korean Oddessy) is inspired by Chinese literature and a different way of telling the story. I Like a lot of kdrama, I really love watching kdrama but I also love numerous Chinese projects and Jdrama.
IMO each country has great dramas, it just depends if you want to look for them and give it a chance or not.
Both main leads are gorgeous! I can’t wait! ?
