... possibly Ardisia solanacea of Primulaceae.

Leaf and flowering season looks different.
Could it be A. crenata ?

To me looks different from images of A. crenata on net.
Pl. check other species at Ardisia

With this additional image, I will go for Ardisia virens
Flora of China says: Fruit red or blackish red, globose, 7-9(-10) mm in diam., densely black punctate.
So these may be unripe fruits.
