#inyourface challenge stems from Webnovel’s core culture of ‘faceslapping’. It’s not a violent term but is used to describe people who rely on their hard work and never-say-die attitude before dealing a painful figurative blow to people who once belittled them. In line with Webnovel’s brand philosophy of story-telling, users were encouraged to showcase their humorous plot twists in their daily lives and the encouraging true stories of their journey in life.
