Le Coup de Foudre 我只喜欢你 is a 35-episode youth drama adapted from author Qiao Yi’s 乔一 short story about her own life. It stars Janice Wu Qian, Zhang Yujian, Ma Li and Zhao Zhiwei.
Le Coup de Foudre tells the story of two graduating high school students Yan Mo and Qiao Yi who promised each other that they would study overseas together. The promise doesn’t get fulfilled and both of them end up losing contact with each other. A class reunion four years later brings Yan Mo and Qiao Yi back in contact and this time, Qiao Yi realizes she has feelings for Yan Mo. She decides to follow Yan Mo in an effort to be together with him. As fate would have it, she arrives only to learn that Yan Mo already has someone else. Yan Mo still does a lot of things secretly for Qiao Yi despite not being able to express his feelings. How will this awkward romance end?
Janice Wu plays the funny and optimistic Qiao Yi. Her acting skills are very versatile. She can play any part with little or no difficulty, be it a young girl in My Sunshine or a princess in Fighter Of The Destiny or a detective in An Oriental Odyssey.
Zhang Yujian plays the quiet Yan Mo. This will be the second time he is working with Janice Wu though considering that they are both under the management of Huace, it was only a matter of time before the stars aligned for these two. A lot of fans who watched An Oriental Odyssey would probably agree that both Janice Wu and Zhang Yujian’s characters could’ve ended up together since they had great chemistry onscreen.

I love the drama. I just watched the first 2 episodes, and so far so good. They got the two main characters perfectly!!! They changed some of the family dynamics, but it somehow works for the drama. Can't wait to see the rest of the drama.
Janice Wu is the perfect actress for this drama. She is exactly how the book has the character. The guy is good at being the stoic aloof guy. The side characters are also really good. This is going to be one of those classic dramas, and it is so fluffy and happy.
I am one of those Lanzhi – Yuanan shippers in Oriental Odyssey. Knowing that there's a second chance for Janice Wu and Zhang Yu Jian to be together on screen makes me ecstatic.
When I read the novel, these two really were my mental pictures as the characters.
I know there are plot changes to fit the drama. I just hope the writers don't mess up too much with the novel.
I've seen six episodes and I love every moment of it.
I just finished watching this drama and I LOVED IT. It's pretty similar to "A love so beautiful" but somehow a bit more warm and loving. I enjoyed the innocence of their characters, and how the difficulties they encountered are relatable.
(Spoiler alert) Does anyone know what happens to Fei Dachuan and Cheng Youmei, did they end up together? it is suggested in the final episode that they do, but not clear.
Also…. I'm IN LOVE with the wardrobe of Janice Wu in the second part of the series, when she moves to Beijing. The art direction is exquisite with those blues and yellows in many details. Can anyone tell me where to find those dresses????
