She worked in showbiz, so her WeChat friends were practically all people in the industry already. As she glanced through her latest Moments feed, they were all posts about her copying Qian Ge. Everyone's thoughts and opinions were more or less the same as the first post she saw on Moments - they were all conversations belittling her and making fun of her, but after the initial shock, they weren't as hard to hear.
Everyone was already talking about it on WeChat Moments, so she was afraid her Weibo must be popping off.
When Zhuang Yi sent her the WeChat message just now, Ji Yi wanted to take a look out of curiosity. Yet she was afraid and didn't dare look, so she figured she might as well toss her phone aside. Then she found a book and read to calm herself down.
There were many things that were easier said than done. Ji Yi forced herself to read over three pages before she couldn't read anymore.
She threw the book away, laid in bed, and tried to sleep. However, with a distracted mind, she simply couldn't fall asleep.
Eventually, she anxiously picked up the phone and downloaded Weibo again.
Ji Yi stared at the phone screen unwaveringly for a while before she lifted her fingers. Then she entered her username and password.
After she successfully logged into Weibo, Ji Yi saw with her own eyes how her message notifications skyrocketed from 0 to over 9999.
She first opened Weibo's main page and saw that her Weibo post from new year's eve already had over ten million comments. From a simple glance, the comments all cursed her.
Ji Yi didn't dare read what everyone actually posted about her and instead, she checked the top searches list.
Aside from the hashtag #JiYiplagerizedQianGe# which took the first spot on the top searches list before she uninstalled Weibo last night, there were also now #JiYiLeaveShowbiz# and #boycottJiYi# etc topics.
Everyone had lots of leisure time during the new year, but now with all the commotion online, she was afraid all the netizens would get involved.
At ten in the evening, it marked twenty-four whole hours since the situation first started and news broke out to everyone. It was only then that the heat of the situation finally started to subside.
After about ten minutes, Ji Yi refreshed Weibo's top searches list and saw topics about her starting to drop, bit by bit. Ji Yi felt the large, crushing pressure upon her heart lessen a little.
At midnight, Ji Yi saw only one topic about herself still on the top searches list then she let out a sigh of relief.
Since eating two bites of breakfast in the morning, Ji Yi hadn't eaten a thing. Just as she was about to look for snacks to fill her tummy, she saw that "I love eating mangoes" posted a new comparison gif about her and Qian Ge at ten past twelve.
The gif was a scene from "The Legend of Qingcheng" broadcasted ten days ago. Qian Ge and the male lead were standing in the majestic imperial city, staring at the billions of lights far away as they bid each other farewell.
Ji Yi's gif was a farewell scene from "The Tempestuous Grand Tang" broadcasted just two hours ago. Ji Yi's character and the male lead sat on a hillside under boundless starlight.
Ji Yi gave her best performance in this very scene in "The Tempestuous Grand Tang" since this part was incredibly similar to the night she asked Yuguang Ge for a divorce.
After she memorized her lines, she pretended the glistening stars in the sky were the sky lanterns Yuguang Ge set up for her. This scene was shot in one take.
At the time, the entire cast and crew remained silent for a whole minute after the scene was shot. Then the director cried, "Cut!"
