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.
