BL novel Seizing Dreams (Duo Meng) begins filming with Bi Wen Jun and Wang Rui Chang

Aha! The reunion of besties from In A Class of Her Own (remake of Sungkyunkwan Scandal, so they are the SJK & YAI of the Chinese adaptation) for a BL novel-turned-drama adaptation. Original novel is written by Fei Tian Ye Xiang. I took a look at the synopsis and would like to describe it as an uplifting relief for one’s soul from the harsh reality through their dreams. The story begins with one of our male leads, Yu Hao (played by Bi Wen Jun), a hard-working college student accused of stealing a watch from a family (he’s tutoring the little girl.) We don’t know much about him yet, but a quick introduction tells us he grew up under sad circumstances. For whatever reason, his parents left him when he was younger and his sole guardian – his grandmother, died shortly after his college entrance exam. And now he’s accused of thievery. At wits’ end, he wants to end his life and misery. At that point, he meets the other male lead, known as the “General” (played by Wang Rui Chang) who advises and guides him in his dream to retrieve his totem (a shield). And that’s how the drama works. A dreamer is saved when he/she finds his totem in the dream, leading to resolutions to the problems of reality. BTW, the “General” has another identity. 😉

In A Class of Her Own with Ju Jing Yi and Song Wei Long confirms broadcast

If you didn’t know, In A Class of Her Own (云上学堂) is the Chinese remake of a very popular Korean drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal in 2010!

2010! A decade ago… While I was having raccoon eyes studying during college with over 20 credits per semester, I was also nursing a blooming love for Yoo Ah In in the dark corner of my heart, who was all eyes for Park Min Young in the series. What a lucky gal, being surrounded by three very different but equally charming men.

Airing on 7/23! Check out the 3 English-Subbed trailers after the jump!

Ju Jing Yi, Song Wei Long, and Bi Wen Jun confirm Sungkyunkwan Scandal remake, In A Class of Her Own

Such pretty leads they got for the remake of Korean series Sungkyunkwan Scandal, one of which I really loved because I met the charismatic Yoo Ah In in there! It’s basically a cross-dressed female who enters a renowned academy and meets three very different men there. One look at Ju Jing Yi and one could tell she’s a girl, but this is dramaland and the guys are dim. Lol. Song Wei Long will take the leading male role and Bi Wen Jun and Wang Rui Chang will round out the quartet of troublemakers!
