K-drama Discovery of Romance with Eric, Jung Yumi, and Sung Joon is a classic, I haven’t rewatched it but from what I remember of the writing, directing, and acting chemistry it would probably stand the test of time even now. That’s why having a C-drama remake just feels like an uphill climb with a why bother thrown in, but it’s here now the C-version as Tencent on August 28th premiered Discovery of Romance (Chinese title Summer’s Romance) with Qin Jun Jie, Wu Qian (Janice Wu), and Yang Bing Zhuo. The trailer is mostly comedic and Wu Qian manages to get close to shrieky/over-acting territory but thankfully never crosses over while Qin Jun Jie is one of those good actors that this drama is lucky to have cast as the male lead and has a shot at matching Eric’s portrayal which was so hard to love and hard to hate at the same time. Qin Jun Jie is actually have a double shot this week as his headlining lasted drama adaptation of Louis Cha wuxia novel Fox Volant of Snowy Mountain this 2022 version titled The Hidden Fox is premiering three days later on August 31st.
