First Impressions: Falling Into Your Smile

I can’t deal with myself anymore. I keep starting things without finishing what’s already on my plate. But who gives a fuck, it is what it is.

Falling Into Your Smile

In the ultra-competitive world of e-sports, the all-male ZGDX OPL team is second to none. Armies of adoring female fans follow the team wherever it goes. But when one of the team’s star players suffers a hand injury, the tall, handsome, and notoriously hard-to-please ZDGX captain Lu Si Cheng will not be rushed into choosing a replacement. The petite, lollipop-loving Tong Yao, meanwhile, is a budding amateur gamer – obsessed with OPL. Her skills are exceptional, but she is of the firm belief that in the male-dominated world of pro gaming, love is a big no-no – even though her own ex-boyfriend was a gamer. When the ZDGX team manager learns of her skills, he contacts her, thinking that recruiting her as the scene’s first female player will help score a major PR coup. Lu Si Cheng is dismissive of her initially, but eventually agrees to accept her as a substitute – a move that polarizes the team’s fanbase. But as they start to get to know one another better, could a closer bond begin to form between them?

Thoughts: I am always down for a e-sports drama, as long as it has a healthy dose of romance to back it up. I already know that this show has a lot of behind the scenes drama and a lot of actual gamers are not happy about this. But let’s be real, this is a drama and you can’t expect it to be 100% factual. I am loving it so far. I find it cheesy in some aspects in the way only Chinese dramas can do. There are aspects about it that I’m so annoyed with, like the fact that Cheng Xiao’s character’s name is Smiling but this bitch doesn’t smile like at all. Also the dubbing of Korean from the “Korean” gamers is terrible. But all in all, I’m really liking this drama for it’s low messy moments and all the cute “will they, won’t they” moments.
