What’s Next? – In a Class of Her Own

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.
