Good news to book lovers and drama fans! Who would have expected that reading as a skill and a hobby will be the main point of a drama? Reading will take the spotlight in new romance drama, Reading Class 阅读课, with Lareina Song Zu’er (Novoland: Eagle Flag) and Neo Hou Minghao (When We Were Young) as the leads.
Book-smart Wu Jiashu will be our female lead who will become the private tutor of Lu Xingchen, a dyslexic celebrity. It’s an ironic situation that he got cast in a cultural variety show called “Reading Class”, so the audience must never find out that he has difficulties in reading! These two will not only find joy and romance in reading, but they will also learn from the authors of the books and even help others with their problems.
Both leads shared these adorable GIFs in their social media accounts:
The plot screams cuteness and innocence while using a fairly unique plot. I have never seen Song Zu’er in any of works yet, and this might just be the first! Huang Zitao was first rumored to be the male lead, but was it turned out to be Hou Minghao. I absolutely have no complaints about the casting change because Hou Minghao was such a delight to watch in When We Were Young that I could not help but wish to see him in another drama again!
We might have to finish reading at least 10 books first before we could see this drama, but this is one of the dramas that I’m really looking forward to see! Will you be checking out the drama with these lovely readers too? Drama started filming today (June 28) and also stars Oscar Sun Jian and Kiki Chen Bing.
