Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Fortunately, Jiang Yuning had to go over to Fu Yahui&x2019;s mountain villa in the afternoon. Otherwise, she would probably be worrying the entire day about the outcome of her video.
This was because she was really eager to receive the attention and adoration of the netizens. After all, she really wanted to know if all the effort that she had put into preparing the video would produce any positive results.
On the other hand, as soon as Jiang Yuning uploaded the video onto her public social media account, Shen Yichen replayed the video a couple of times before he scrolled through the comments to determine the response and reactions from the netizens towards Jiang Yuning&x2019;s short video.
[Oh my god! I am going to have a heart attack. Miss Jiang Yuning looks so beautiful and elegant in the video!]
[Is she a goddess or something? How can she look so beautiful in the Chinese traditional outfit? I think I have replayed the video about ten times right now.]
[Ah! Sister Yuning really made a video for us! It was such a beautiful story. Although it was only a short video, it really touched me.]
[I am also going to purchase this set of outfit embroidered with magnolias. No one can stop me!]
[Wow, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hair accessories and shoes all accurately depict the etiquette and culture of the people from the ancient times. I can really give her a perfect score for this video.]
An hour later, the news about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s video became the hot search all over the internet. Of course, those who used to criticize and humiliate whatever that Jiang Yuning would do in the past suddenly had nothing to criticize her for when she uploaded that video. They had initially intended to secretly watch the video and leave, but after watching the video, they could not help but to replay the video over and over again. This was because Jiang Yuning really looked absolutely beautiful in the traditional Chinese outfit.
It was no wonder that Lu Jingzhi had reacted the way that he did the other night. All the men on the internet were mesmerized by Jiang Yuning&x2019;s beauty and poise as they watched the short video.
Very soon, there was more than ten thousand comments on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s post. This time, most of the comments were positive and full of praises for her.
However, Shen Yichen knew that in order to maintain this kind of positive image, Jiang Yuning would need to be enthusiastic and she had to continue making more of these short videos in order to increase the positive and warm feelings that the netizens feel towards her. In other words, she had to continue giving the netizens reasons to view her in a positive and completely different perspective than what they were already used to.
As long as Jiang Yuning continued to maintain and keep up her current attitude, she would have no problem appeasing the netizens and keeping up a good reputation before them.
Most of Guangying Media&x2019;s artistes usually had to go through a promotional period where the company would have to use a lot of resources to promote their artistes, but this was not the case for Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s video was extremely hot on the internet and there were also plenty of fans who loved the traditional Chinese outfits forwarding her videos to their friends and families.
At this time, Director Shen Guobang was having breakfast with an actress whom he was considering for the role of the third female lead in his upcoming drama.
This man had always been very difficult to please and he always had to meet with the person he was about to cast in his dramas face-to-face before making his final decision.
As for the role of the third female lead, he had already identified a few actresses that he thought would be perfect for the role. Therefore, he was meeting up with them before he made his final decision.
However, after meeting the first actress that he had in mind, he felt that she turned out not to be perfect for the role. The actresses nowadays were all very indifferent in their roles and most of their performances turned out to be static and emotionless.
&x201C;Director Shen, this actress is from Guangying Media. Aren&x2019;t you satisfied with her performance?&x201D; the assistant quickly asked when he saw Director Shen Guobang coming out in a hurry. &x201C;Their artiste director, Shen Yichen, had already called me several times to recommend this actress. Are you really not interested to cast her in your drama?&x201D;
In fact, there were other agents in Guangying Media who were also trying hard to get their actresses a role in Shen Guobang&x2019;s drama.
However, Director Shen Guobang&x2019;s assistant did not know that the person that Shen Yichen wanted to recommend him was in fact Jiang Yuning, because nobody knew that Shen Yichen was Jiang Yuning&x2019;s exclusive agent.
&x201C;No.&x201D; Shen Guobang shook his head before walking out of the hotel room. After a short while, he quickly hurried back to the assistant before handing his cell phone to the assistant and asking, &x201C;Who is this girl?&x201D;
The assistant immediately knew who the actress was as soon as he saw the short video and he quickly replied, &x201C;This actress has a really bad reputation. There were many people who had recommended her for the role after she wore a traditional Chinese outfit for a shooting. However, I did not take it seriously because of the bad reputation that she has.&x201D;
&x201C;Contact her immediately! Right now!&x201D; Shen Guobang replied. &x201C;This is exactly the person that I want for the role of Ping&x2019;er. She is the perfect person for that character. How could you have disregarded her completely? You&x2026;you are seriously infuriating me.&x201D;
&x201C;Director, I know that I was wrong. I think that she is really beautiful too, but&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;No buts!&x201D; The director was very determined in his reply. He was supposed to meet two more actresses in the afternoon, but after seeing Jiang Yuning&x2019;s video, he was no longer interested to meet them anymore.
The assistant felt extremely helpless and he could not do anything else but to quickly appease the director. &x201C;Alright then, I will try to contact her immediately.&x201D;
He quickly searched for Jiang Yuning&x2019;s contact information online and tried to contact the number immediately. He would never have expected that this would have been Shen Yichen&x2019;s private cell number.
On the other hand, Shen Yichen would never have expected that the assistant would call him all of a sudden when he had already been rejected so many times, as he tried so hard to push for Jiang Yuning to meet the director.
&x201C;Hello. This is Shen Yichen.&x201D;
The assistant was taken aback. &x201C;Director Shen? I am Director Shen Guobang&x2019;s assistant. Is this your contact number?&x201D;
Shen Yichen could not help but smile upon hearing what the assistant had just said. &x201C;I understand why you are so surprised. Yes, this is my cell phone number, but this number is specifically set aside for those who want to discuss about any collaborations or job opportunities with Jiang Yuning. However, I have not disclosed to anyone that I am her exclusive agent. Why have you called?&x201D;
&x201C;This is what has happened&x2014;Director Shen Guobang saw the short video that Jiang Yuning has just uploaded onto her public social media account. After watching her video, the director has decided that Jiang Yuning is perfect for the third female role in his upcoming drama. Therefore, he wanted me to approach her to discuss if she would be interested in taking on the role. However, now that I have found out that you are her agent, I believe that it would be more convenient for me to discuss these matters with you directly.&x201D;
&x201C;So, this is what has happened. I have called you several times previously because I wanted to recommend Jiang Yuning for the role&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2026;we have misunderstood. As soon as Director Shen saw Jiang Yuning, he made up his mind that he wanted her to take on as his third female lead. Initially, when you called, I thought that&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;What were you thinking?&x201D;
&x201C;Ah, nothing actually. When can we arrange to meet up? I hope that you will be able to arrange a meeting for us soon so that I can get back to Director Shen Guobang with some good news.&x201D; The assistant quickly changed the topic. He was afraid to reveal that Jiang Yuning had almost lost the opportunity to play the third female lead due to his mistake.
&x201C;Alright then. I will arrange for the meeting as soon as possible after I discuss this matter with Jiang Yuning. I will call you back later.&x201D;
Director Shen Guobang&x2019;s assistant quickly thanked Shen Yichen before hanging up.
After putting down the phone, Shen Yichen could not help but raise his brows. What kind of irony was this?
It was really unexpected.
He had already made so many calls to help Jiang Yuning to fight for the opportunity to meet Director Shen Guobang but it was all for nothing. In the end, Director Shen Guobang had miraculously watched Jiang Yuning&x2019;s short video all by himself.
Jiang Yuning had successfully created an opportunity for herself and through that simple effort of hers, Director Shen Guobang had discovered her talent and was full of praises for her.
However, since Jiang Yuning had already informed him that she would be busy dealing with some personal family affairs in the afternoon, he would thus only be able to arrange for them to have a meeting with the director the next day.
He knew that Jiang Yuning would definitely be extremely excited when she heard the news.
However, he was not sure if Jiang Yuning would be able to successfully pass the audition with Director Shen Guobang&x2026;
At this time, Jiang Yuning had no time to care about anything else. She was getting ready together with Ku Jie to finally confront Fu Yahui for everything that she had done.
