Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Jiang Yuning knew that something would definitely happen between Fu Yahui, Huo Zhendong, and Huo Yuxi. Unfortunately, she would not be able witness the drama first hand. Jiang Yuning knew that Fu Yahui would definitely get even with Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi because she was such a selfish and calculative person.
The case was still under investigation, with the results of the investigation not out yet.
Jiang Yuning gave her utmost cooperation to the police officers by disclosing everything that she knew. Lawyer Zou was also there to help fill in the gaps and provide the police officers with further evidence and information.
This was because Jiang Yuning did not have as much information as Lu Jingzhi on the matter.
When the bankruptcy had hit the Jiang family five years ago, Jiang Yuning was still grieving over her father&x2019;s mysterious disappearance. Furthermore, she was forced to join the entertainment industry then to make ends meet and provide for her grandfather and herself. She was still waiting to discover the whole truth about Fu Yahui&x2019;s disappearance and the extent that Lu Jingzhi had gone to protect her.
On Sunday, Jiang Yuning received a phone call from Shen Yichen early in the morning informing her to make a trip to Guangying Media to sign the collaboration contract. The other party who was in charge of filming
The other party was very sincere in making this trip personally as Jiang Yuning had been personally selected by Director Shen Guobang for the role of the third female lead. Since all of the ancient drama produced and directed by Shen Guobang had always been a success, he had absolute faith in his choice.
He would always insist on the actress that he had chosen, and he had never been wrong.
Since Director Shen Guobang had chosen Jiang Yuning for the role of the third female lead, he was also very curious about how this would end.
&x201C;You do not need to pick me up today, I will drive myself there. I will also ask the young paparazzo to accompany me.&x201D;
&x201C;Why do you call him the young paparazzo all the time? Do you not know his name?&x201D; Shen Yichen asked out of curiosity.
&x201C;His name is Tao Ruizhe. I had known it from the first time I met him, but I still prefer to call him the young paparazzo,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled. &x201C;This shows how special our relationship is!&x201D;
&x201C;Alright, alright. Since the young boy is always supporting you no matter what you do, there is nothing that I can do. Make sure to arrive earlier. Do not let the other party wait for you,&x201D; Shen Yichen snorted.
&x201C;I have already called him earlier. I will leave as soon as he arrives,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied before hanging up the phone.
After a short while, Jiang Yuning began driving to Guangying Media together with the young paparazzo. This was only the third time that she had been to Guangying Media for serious business, aside from the two times that she had gone there to attend the audition for
The employees working in Guangying Media were all very curious about Jiang Yuning because they had rarely seen her make an appearance in the company.
They did not know why Guangying Media had offered her an employment contract and taken her on as one of their artistes when they had not even provided her with any resources. No one knew who the agent in charge of managing her was, and it seemed as though her future was still as bleak as it was before.
In fact, it was not surprising because she was an actress with such a bad reputation. Why would anyone have wanted to waste any resources on her?
&x201C;I just saw Jiang Yuning walking into the company. Do you know why she is here today? Are they finally allocating some resources to her?&x201D;
&x201C;I do not understand why they had even bothered to sign her on as an artiste under Guangying Media. Didn&x2019;t she post a short video on her public social media lately? She must really have nothing to do, and that is why she is trying so hard to gain some fame and attention online.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could hear what the employees were saying about her, but she did not pay any attention to them. She was wearing a pair of sunglasses as she walked to Shen Yichen&x2019;s office together with the young paparazzo.
At this time, the agent who had confronted Shen Yichen two days ago had just came out of Shen Yichen&x2019;s office together with the artiste that he was managing.
&x201C;What is she doing here?&x201D;
The agent scratched his head before he replied, &x201C;Sister Xian, she is here to sign the contract for the role of the third female lead in the drama
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t I ask you to question Director Shen about that? What was the conclusion?&x201D; The actress, who was known as Sister Xian, turned around and asked her agent.
&x201C;Director Shen said that Director Shen Guobang had personally chosen Jiang Yuning as the actress that he wanted to play the role.&x201D;
&x201C;Who are you trying to deceive?&x201D; Mu Xian sneered. &x201C;However, I have recently heard some very interesting news about Jiang Yuning. I should release this news to the public and see how Jiang Yuning reacts to it. I should teach her a lesson since she stole Zhou Jinshu&x2019;s role previously, and she is now robbing me of my role.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Xian, I don&x2019;t think that it is such a good idea. In fact, wasn&x2019;t Zhou Jinshu was the one who had robbed Jiang Yuning of the role in the other drama?&x201D; the agent asked with his eyes wide open because he knew that Shen Yichen was Jiang Yuning&x2019;s exclusive agent.
&x201C;Why are you so nervous? I thought you would have gotten used to this by now.&x201D; Mu Xian laughed before she walked away from her agent in her black high heels.
Though entertainment circle was not that big, it was not exactly small either. Most of the people who were able to make it big in the entertainment industry usually had a rich family backgrounds or some other form of support.
Therefore, it was not surprising for them to know of some gossip.
Furthermore, both Mu Xian and Zhou Jinshu had come from rich family backgrounds.
Jiang Yuning was merely an actress with a bad reputation who posed no real threat to them.
If she really was that capable, then Jiang Yuning should not have given anyone anything to gossip about her.
Jiang Yuning signed the contract with the other party at ten o&x2019;clock in the morning. The role of the third female lead was a difficult and challenging one, and although the producers had their doubts about Jiang Yuning, they were relieved to have the assurance of both Shen Yichen and Shen Guobang.
&x201C;I hope that we will have a very pleasant collaboration. I hope that Miss Jiang will be able to give us a satisfactory performance.&x201D;
The filmmakers repeated themselves a few times and it was obvious that they had many concerns about Jiang Yuning taking on the role.
&x201C;You really have to work hard to prove your worth this time. If
&x201C;I will definitely give everything that I have to ensure that I portray the character perfectly,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied Shen Yichen in an equally serious tone.
&x201C;Alright then, all the best!&x201D; Shen Yichen said as he patted Jiang Yuning on her shoulder. &x201C;I will be waiting for you to release the second issue of your short video tomorrow. Guangying Media has recently done some investigation and discovered that there is a significant decrease in the number of negative comments and criticism targeted at you. Prepare diligently for your role in
&x201C;I can go later in the afternoon,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.
Shen Yichen nodded his head and said, &x201C;I will make the necessary arrangements for you now.&x201D;
He knew that Jiang Yuning was the kind of person who was very willing to work hard and even suffer to do whatever that she had to.
&x201C;If my grandpa was not ill, I would not need to learn from anyone else because I could learn directly from him. However, I think that I should be able to learn about Chinese medicine from my grandpa&x2019;s disciple. I believe that he would definitely be willing to take me in.&x201D;
&x201C;It would also be better if you could learn from an acquaintance. It would be safer for you and I would actually feel more at ease. Furthermore, you would also be helping the company to save some money. You really are the type to like to do everything on your own,&x201D; Shen Yichen laughed as he replied. &x201C;When can I finally let everyone know that I am your exclusive agent?&x201D;
&x201C;I guess we will have to wait until I am no longer a target. Give it some more time,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately.
It was already late in the afternoon when Jiang Yuning finally exited the company. Jiang Yuning contacted the highly respected doctor on the way home. As he had already retired, he was now taking care of his garden and birds at home.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, do you know what I like the most about you? I like that you always have the enthusiasm and the passion to do whatever you decide on,&x201D; the young paparazzo suddenly commented when he saw her rummaging through her address book. He could not help but to laugh out loud when he looked at her. &x201C;After all, everyone would always be calculating if the costs and benefits would be worth it in the end. Are you not afraid of failing?&x201D;
&x201C;Well&x2026;I have already experienced what it was like to be hated by the entire country. What else could I be afraid of? I have no choice but to try my best to succeed.&x201D;
