Chinese drama In a Class of Her Own (2020) is a remake of the 2010 Sungkyunkwan Scandal (2010),a crossdressing romantic comedy that was very popular. The cdrama remake stars Ju Jing Yi (Legend of Yun Xi) as the female lead who dresses as a boy and Song Wei Long (Find Yourself) as the son of the Prime Minister. This is an iQiYi drama so I’m sure it’ll be English subbed on their app when it starts airing July 22, 2020.
Synopsis: Xue Wenxi comes from a poor family, and disguises as a guy to make ends meet by helping to transcript and copywrite books. She meets Feng Chengjun, the son of Prime Minister Yun, who acknowledges her talents. Feng Chenjun secretly planned a setup so that Xue Wenxi was appointed by the Emperor, and enrolled in the Yun Shang Academy which only accepts male students. There, she befriends the rebellious and unrestrained Yu Yuexuan and the cold and aloof Lei Zexin. The four become known as the “Yun Shang Quartet” and assists the Emperor in managing the country.

Richards Wang, whom you may know as the 2nd male lead in time traveling cdrama The Eternal Love (2017), is one of the Quartet as the aloof Lei Ze Xin and Bi Wen Jun (Sweet Tai Chi) is the rebel of the group. The Quartet is all in their 20s so very age appropriate casting here and this is definitely on my watchlist.
Synopsis:Yan Zhixia is a the daughter of a minister who disguises herself as a man in order to work in the royal palace. She mistakenly becomes the eunuch of the Emperor, and with his help, slowly becomes the Head eunuch. However she discovers that actually, Yan Jin knew of her true identity long time ago.

We have a new lakorn pairing in the upcoming Leh Game Rak (2020). It stars Son Yuke (Love at First Hate) and Esther Supreeleela (My Girl) and will be airing from June 17, 2020 two days a week on PPTV. This is a crossdressing/ childhood love romantic lakorn. It’s unknown if it will be English subbed.
The cross dressing, dog in the teaser reminds me very much of Dok Ruk Rim Tang (2010), but I guess it’s not a remake?
Synopsis:None at this time.
PPTV is one of the lesser known in Thai television, at least in the USA, mainly because it doesn’t release that many lakorns when compared to its competitors like Channel 3, 7 or GMM ONE. Actually, Leh Game Rak (2020) was supposed to be a GMM ONE lakorn, so I’m wondering what changed. But not many PPTV lakorns are subbed, so it remains to be seen if this lakorn is English subbed by anyone.
