Song Chen Yue has been in love with his best friend Su Yi since high school. However, his feelings are not reciprocated since Su Yi is madly in love with a classmate, Bai Yu, but his love for the boy is also an unrequited one. Tired of seeing the person he loves suffering, Chen Yue makes a deal with Bai Yu in order to make him agree to go out with Su Yi, offering him money to pay for the medical costs of his sick mother. Unable to refuse the offer, Bai Yu starts a relationship with Su Yi based on lies. Shortly after, Bai Yu disappears without giving any explanation. Three years later, Bai Yu reappears and Su Yi tries to resume his relationship with him, much to the chagrin of Chen Yue, who has not yet managed to confess his feelings for his friend. Meanwhile, Chen Yue's younger sister plans with the help of Bai Yu to have her brother confess to Su Yi by having them participate in a new virtual reality game called "Fanatic", which was being developed by her company.

STORY: Yue Yue loves Su Yi so much that he tries to help him to win over another guy even though you can see Yue Yue's heart being crushed; but he doesn't let Su Yi know this. Later they enter game that is a Virtual Reality World to put love to the test.

ACTING/CAST: They did a good job and they were cute doing it.

MUSIC: Don't remember.

REWATCH VALUE: It has quite a tough plot to understand in parts so a second viewing would make sense.

OVERALL: I enjoyed it. The ending is happy. If you didn't get it, watch it again.

It is very rare that I watch a Chinese movie that's not a historical and even more rare that I watch a Chinese BL. Why? Well, they always wound up ripping my heart out and leaving me angry I'd fallen for that mess again. I mean, it's been a couple of years (I think) and I'm still salty about ADVANCE BRAVELY.

Anyway, this movie came across my feed on youtube and I wasn't going to watch because of the above reason but they got me with Li Quing Ke. He was adorable and I was clicking on it before I even knew what was happening.

I'm so glad I did. This was an amazing premise which I got behind quickly. The storyline can get a little confusing in some parts but I watched this more than once and it gets easier with each view.

I adore Bai and fell so hard for Song, I don't even know what to do with myself.

There was a softness about this movie, a purity in the love between the characters that surprised me. I mean, Chinese BL movies and dramas tend to lean toward the heartbreaking side--the kind of heartbreak a person could never recover from. Usually, these would lead to everyone dying or someone denying their homosexuality to marry a woman--the endings are usually harsh enough to ruin you.

This ending was peaceful and beautiful and loving - and I cried for an entire different reason. This movie deserves more love that it has gotten.
