“You Are My Glory” starring Yang Yang and Dilraba (by age order)
Dilraba stars as “Qiao Jingjing” (乔晶晶), a well known celebrity who has a lot of different personas. One day, one of her personas is exposed. Someone intentionally puts up a clip on the internet of “Qiao Jingjing” playing an online game she endorses, which reveals she is actually a bad player. This doesn’t match with her role as the game’s spokesperson. Out of fear “Qiao Jingjing” won’t be renewed as the spokesperson, her manager signs her up for an online game competition. During this time, “Qiao Jingjing” focuses training hard on playing games. It’s this decision that led her to encounter her crush from high school, “Yu Tu” (于途), through the new online game, “King of Glory” (王者荣耀).
Yang Yang plays “Yu Tu”, who was the school’s most handsome male student and ace student back in the day.
