K-drama Discovery of Love with Eric, Jung Yumi, and Sung Joon in the love triangle to end all love triangles is getting a C-drama remake 8 years later. The drama will star young leads Janice Wu (Wu Qian) and Qin Jun Jie, and I don’t know who the second male lead will be. The original was such a good and frustrating drama, complex and nuanced and very adult in the way relationships and breakups are handled.
