The live streaming function of Douyin, a social application, has occupied a great deal of time in the lives of many young Chinese people. Based on the theory of the magic circle, remediation, narratology and fan economy, this research finds that there is emotional labor in the interaction between live streamers and audiences in the live streaming of mobile games on Douyin. Moreover, it demonstrates that emotional labor has also constructed a new social relationship in different social circles. One is the teammate relationship in the social circle between the audience and the live streamer, and the other is the fans’ class-based relationship in the social circle of audiences.
