“入” means “to enter,” “戏” means “drama,” “太” means “too,” and “深” means “deep.” Literally translated as “getting too deeply involved in a drama,” this term can refer to scenarios where the actors or audiences get so personally emotionally involved in a film or TV show that they blur the line between the fictional plots and reality. Sometimes, it’s used in a more general sense when people become too devoted to or too serious about something that isn’t worthwhile.
