I really like this OST.. It will get you all hyped, really suit a gaming drama.  

This drama has so many OSTs. This one from Joker Xue is my favorite so far :     This one is featuring Lao K & Lao Mao :     This one is Jian

I'm reading the book at the moment. I don't care if it spoils me. I can't get enough of the story. Looking forward to the OTPs interaction and love story.

Hi everyone! Can’t wait for this to come out. I’ve read the English translation of the novel up to what’s currently out, and love it!! Love the strong, quirky main leading lady. I hope they maintain her persona from the novel to drama. And of course the smitten tsundre male lead. Cannot wait to see Xu Kai bring this character out. A Shout of Thanks to @sugarplum892 for opening up this page, and @angelangie for your ever consistent drop of visual goodies. We can count on you to always give a feast for the eyes! :D 

Do we have an air date? I saw on mydramalist it’s supposed to be in December, but I wondered if that was definite.

Mhmm, I feel like I should give a heads up. This drama's source novel is fairly well known on c!net for plagiarism. It's not a regular case either, the novel consist of real people, real events, real gags/gimmicks/memes. 


The title is a ripoff of a well known retired LOL player's game ID 你微笑时好美, he later changed his name to WE's WeiXiao, active from s1 till s4 I believe. The original ID references WeiXiao's ex-girlfriend, who was a commentator for LOL. They are incredibly well known in esport circle, and their story is part of a lot of fans' memory. Anyways, both the male lead and female lead are mix of real people's background, skill, gimmicks and nicknames. The teams can be matched to a number of s6 teams (because the novel was written from s6 to s7), down to the scores, the matches are said to be playback of real matches.


It's not that you can't have references or homages to real life, it's unavoidable to have some influence. But when your entire novel is littered with them, I'm bit more hesitant in condoning it, and when you don't necessarily point out they are references, that's problematic. Moreover, the narrative doesn't particularly respect the esport community. It's not okay to steal other people's achievements, it's not okay to smear professional players or teams, it's absolutely not okay to write incredibly unprofessional behaviour to characters that's very clearly referencing a real person!! e.g. You can criticise people for sleeping around as a general criticism to the industry, but a) they are generally really busy training but ok this is a novel and they have holidays b) irl, they are not allowed to bring random people back to clubs c) if your FL bump into them, don't have them just offer to lose just to keep the secret WTF. 


It's also not goddamn okay to reference Faker multiple times, and demonise him as someone who's selfish and terrorise younger teammates just so he can have what he wants and dominate the team. Faker is a Korean (LCK) player, but he's incredibly gifted and hardworking, well respected around the world by people who know the game and loved by fans, he is not how he's characterised in the novel. Yes you changed the name (a little), but it's super apparent to anyone who has ever followed LOL matches. It's also grossly disrespectful to paint Korean players in negative light, especially when  almost every LPL (Chinese pro league) teams have one or two outstanding Korean players. The last two world championship (s8 and s9) were won by Chinese clubs, but both of them had two fabulous Korean players.


Some thought it was fun fanfic dedicated to WE when they started, but note that WE does not have a good image in the novel, they were mocked, and notable ex-WE players were also mocked and criticised. Maybe the author thought it was funny, but to anyone that knows the teams, it's absolutely not, to newbies, it's just a terrible introduction. Then there's the fact that in 2018, she specifically called out WE fans for using what she thought was a line from her novel. The line was NOT from her novel, she sicced her fans into a passerby, and subsequently went into fanwar with esport fans, where some of her fans say "gosh I wouldn't know WeiXiao if not for this novel", which okay fair if you weren't into esports. The absolute disdain that accompanied "the novel helped making WeiXiao and esport" is utterly ridiculous though, when WE won the first champion on world stage (IPL5) in 2012, which was when esports in China was still in its infancy, 2017 was the year that China hosted the s series games (world championship) and by then it was a billion dollar business. 


The novel's plagiarism issue was known while it was serialising (2016 to 2017ish) but perhaps limited to the small crossover between esport and web novel community, then parts of esport community in 2018 (plagiarism will pop up if you look up the novel, I specifically passed on the novel due to that in early '18), then when they sold the IP it's full blown everywhere on weibo. When they started filming, and just recently when they finished filming, the esport community was in an uproar (okay the spring games also just finished so they had free time, the players also knows by the way). I'm absolutely flabbergasted the production company had to pick THIS ONE out of many to adapt, I'm incredibly annoyed that this is going to draw a lot of new fans with wrong impression, the story or the author or perhaps even the production company doesn't respect or care about LOL or its community. I don't think the drama is using LOL, as Tencent's esport manager responded they didn't authorise usage of the game, godspeed to the game they decided to use, because the esport community is not going to let them live this down.


I'm not saying don't read the novel or don't watch the drama, but I do feel like I should spread awareness about the fact that the novel literally stole years of bloods, tears, frustrations of incredibly hardworking young people following their dreams, some retired but working behind the scene, some still playing today, and flippantly dumped bits and pieces into a story she claimed as her own, then sold the IP for massive amount of money. I'm not even an esport fan, since I only started watching a handful LOL matches last year, but good god did this upset me.

@skibbies Wow, thanks for the eye opening background! That may affect a lot of people who have LOL connections on whether they’ll watch this or not. As for myself, I am one of those in it just for pure entertainment. Since I know nothing about the players nor the game it doesn’t hit my emotions in a negative light, however, I can see how those who are completely aware of the reality would be in an uproar. Had you not said anything, I’d be oblivious. So thank you for enlightenment. When I was on dramapanda website, I did notice that some of the characters names are different than the novel, so perhaps they are changing things up, but that doesn’t make it right.



This article has the characters names in the pictures. 


All things considered, plagiarism is a very serious issue, so to those whom are deeply affected by it may choose to avoid watching this drama entirely.

Thankfully, this forum has a mature audience that allows both sides to have their say and be civil about it too. 

Thank you again @skibbies Appreciate you sharing what you know behind the actual story.

Watched the first four episodes; only the first two subbed in English are out on YouTube, but if you search on the web, you can find out what else is out there. 

Anyways…first impressions:

I like it. It’s good to see what I’ve read about come to life. :heart:
Putting my thoughts below in spoilers in case peeps don’t like to know. Keep in mind that I’ve seen episodes 1-4 already.



What I liked:

Interactions of the lead actors. LS may seem like an angry bird, serious all the time, but he sure likes to taunt and tease his girl. Heh.

TY is super cute! She can dish it out but be contrite the next moment. Plus she pulls out that lollipop like she’s a cute lil manga loli. Forget that TY’s ex is having a hard time letting her go. LS is going to have his hands full with this tiny bomb! hahah. 

The game graphics are drawn pretty realistic. (Granted, I know NOTHING about LoL or any other computer game equivalent to it.) Unlike some dramas that portray half designed gameplay, these seemed well done to me. Felt like I was watching an animated scene from a Wuxia drama. 

So what I have a bit of a beef with: 

Most of the characters are like they are in the book, however, the Mom is not as supportive & TY’s lil bro is absent (not sure if he’s been deleted totally or just missing temporarily) and K is more grumpier than the male lead it feels like to me. There are also a bit of different scenes, ie. TY doesn’t accept ZGDX’s mid position before flying to the Spring Tournament Finals game, and her bestie suddenly appeared at the game with her too. Plus MingGod’s retirement scene didn’t evoke the same level of emotion that I got from the novel. Then, the story became a lil choppy around the time that they show the game play. The flow seems to go too fast for me. I mean, I’ve been a seasonal drama watcher for over 14 years, and if I have to stop and pause the drama to understand what’s going on, I am worried for others less experienced. Hah. Also, I’m complaining a bit about the cropping of the actors heads off. Like the top fourth of their heads are cut off. And they zoom in REAL close. Not sure why the production designed it that way.

Soooo, if one can get past a few negatives, you’ll enjoy the storyline.


I’m looking forward to this story. When I got done with episode two, I wanted episode three. Then episode four. So that’s a good sign in my book. Hopefully I’ll be triggered to keep on watching till the end. Hope you do too.

Thanks for the images @sugarplum892 and OST @morningdew

Just finished ep 10, and am sad that I don’t have a double episode. Hurry up and come Monday! lol. Unfortunately, they left it at such an epic cliffhanger: just before a match. No! I need more episodes!!! 45 minutes goes by too quickly. Feeling deprived so I went back & already restarted watching from the beginning episodes. Sigh. Drama Addict. :sweat_smile:  (I am also rereading the novel to compare as its broadcasted.)

Who else has pulled out their Rubik’s cube to work on while you watch this series? 


Are ya all having as much fun as I am??? :partyblob:

Just checking in after Ep 16.  This is my newest obssession.  I love gaming myself and honestly I  have only seen gaming being the basis of dramas from China!  I love this stage of romantic dramas, when they have feelings for each other, and it's such a game for them to not-so-secretly show their affection but haven't quite declared their love.  


One of my favourite scenes from EP 16 is when Chessman says that his ideal type is a girl who can beat him at gaming, then promptly challenges Smiling to a solo match where he may or may not have let her beat him. If that's not a declaration then you have not watched enough dramas ;) 


I also find myself quite drawn into the CGI gaming scenes.  Who else wants to play this game already!?

Am watching this too and it’s been fun! 

I don’t game but I understand this much better than the Glory one by YangYang. 

the team members are a great bunch - all straight talking and in your face but are also kind and righteous. We all can see what’s happening between the leads  but only they remain in denial until ep16… LSC was quite blatantly laying bait. Lol. What a tease.


but you have to put two and two together - clues even these smart FLs tend to not pick up until the fact wiggles its booty in their faces.  TY is so transparent, so easy to read. 

Something will probably happen the last 10 eps or so. Till then, I shall enjoy the entertainment.

I saw the preview at somebody's page (not subbed but a kiss :Cornykiss: in public with millions watching is kind of worth sweating bullets until ep 23 & 24 and supporting this future marriage union )    ..as for 802 , in their banter i think last time was 801 ..".if we were in the old days you would have to marry me" lines ...

Kudos to excellent and timely subs ...

I enjoyed this very much, wasn't expecting to. It remind me of Go Go Squid a lot but the fl here doesn't act overly cutesy or childishly like the one in S01. 

    I like that the fl is not skinny like most C-actresses. I don't know why so many are harsh on her poor acting skills either. I think she does just fine. She's not overdoing the facial expressions - I've seen far worse from some well known actresses. 

    The only thing that bothered me was the many sexist remarks made of Tong Yao & attacking her gender. I wished they made her skirt uniform longer or Idk wear pants LoL. She's mostly seated & not moving around unlike in a tennis match. I love her cat though.

I've watched many e-sport dramas and by far this is one of the best drama (as per current airing episode) 


I just love the ZGDX team members, they are funny during normal times but will be a super focus mode during competition 


And Sicheng is such a teasing tsundere guy :lol:



It's damn obvious he likes TY and he keeps on giving hints to everyone but nobody seems to take those hints seriously
