On the other side, after her discussion with Qing Yu, Vera decided that she needed to change her attitude and use a new strategy to deal with Jiang Yuning.
Although she really disliked Jiang Yuning, she was really a very capable agent after all and she wanted Jiang Yuning to acknowledge her ability.
She was an agent who had led and managed so many artistes and brought them to fame. How much more challenging could Jiang Yuning be?
Vera began to plan her new strategy to bring Jiang Yuning to fame. She only had three months and she had to gain Jiang Yuning&x2019;s trust and recognition in this short period of time so that Jiang Yuning would beg her to stay when the three months came to an end.
According to the information that she had obtained from Shen Yichen, Jiang Yuning was to start shooting for the drama
She did not understand that the short videos that Jiang Yuning had posted during the most difficult period was what gained her the loyal fans that she had today. Jiang Yuning did not intend to give up on this hobby&x2026;
The skies of Luo City were finally clear the next morning.
Vera resumed her role of being a top agent and she headed to the company to report for work immediately after breakfast. She went to Shen Yichen&x2019;s office directly because she wanted to discuss the allocation of resources for Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;There are another twenty days before Jiang Yuning officially starts filming
Shen Yichen looked at Vera immediately after listening to her suggestion. &x201C;The public and netizens have already labelled Jiang Yuning as an artiste with an ancient and traditional style. That is the best and fastest way for her to regain her popularity and fame. I think that getting her to join a variety show now would only affect the positive impression that the netizens have of her now.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not agree that Jiang Yuning should be merely confined to ancient styles. What is the role of an agent? An agent is supposed to fight for resources, plan ahead for their artistes, and vigorously promote them through various different methods.
&x201C;Furthermore, Director Shen, do not forget that I am in charge of managing Jiang Yuning now.&x201D;
Shen Yichen took a deep breath before he finally replied Vera. &x201C;You had better get Jiang Yuning&x2019;s consent to cooperate and participate in the variety show first.&x201D;
&x201C;She will definitely cooperate with me,&x201D; Vera replied confidently.
&x201C;I will make the necessary arrangements, then. However, do not blame me for interfering if there is any negative impact on Jiang Yuning from her participation in the variety show.&x201D;
&x201C;I trust in my own professional judgement.&x201D; After that, Vera turned around and left Shen Yichen&x2019;s office immediately.
On her way out, Vera bumped into Mu Xian and her agent who were just heading to Shen Yichen&x2019;s office at this time.
Vera was not familiar with the artistes under Guangying Media and so she simply nodded her head slightly before walking away.
&x201C;Who is that woman?&x201D; Mu Xian asked her agent immediately. &x201C;I have never seen her before.&x201D;
&x201C;I have heard that she is one of the trump cards that the chairman has brought back from abroad. Her name is Vera and she had successfully managed and brought many foreign artistes to fame. I have also heard that she had personally requested to manage Jiang Yuning and the chairman agreed to her request. Therefore, she is now in charge of managing Jiang Yuning,&x201D; the agent replied.
Mu Xian smirked and rolled her eyes after hearing what her agent had said. &x201C;I really do not understand why the company values Jiang Yuning so much. It is such a pity that the company is investing such good resources on that pig.&x201D;
&x201C;Who knows what is going through Chairman Gu&x2019;s mind? Let us just wait and laugh at the final outcome.&x201D;
The both of them had a good laugh before they knocked on Shen Yichen&x2019;s office door and subsequently entered his office. They did not know that Vera had been hiding in a corner as she eavesdropped on their conversation.
Although Vera already knew that Jiang Yuning was being humiliated and made fun of even in Guangying Media itself, she did not know that the situation was so serious.
After she left, Vera looked up some information on Mu Xian and concluded that Mu Xian was the pig.
Both Mu Xian and Jiang Yuning were pigs.
After she had completed her investigation, Vera was very surprised at her own anger when Mu Xian insulted Jiang Yuning.
She should have been happy about it.
Vera then got into her car before making a phone call to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Where do you live? I want to have a calm and peaceful meeting with you.&x201D;
&x201C;I am at the same location where you had looked for me yesterday. You do not need to come and look for me if you cannot stand the smell,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied over the phone.
&x201C;I will be there in half an hour,&x201D; Vera replied hastily. All the sympathy that she had felt for Jiang Yuning a few minutes ago had already dissipated, and all that she felt for her right now was hatred and disgust.
With this kind of attitude, Jiang Yuning deserved to be hated by many.
After the incident that had occurred yesterday, Jiang Yuning had initially expected Vera to come up with some other method to deal with her. She was surprised when Vera started talking to her in a polite manner.
Jiang Yuning would not have any prejudice against Vera if she did not have any other bad intentions.
Vera arrived at Grandpa Tan&x2019;s house about half an hour later but as a girl who had grown up abroad, she was really not used to the smell of herbs and Chinese medicine.
When Jiang Yuning realized that Vera really could not stand the smell of herbs, she took her to the garden located just outside the courtyard.
&x201C;I have already made some work arrangements for you,&x201D; Vera said as she passed a stack of documents over to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I have already discussed the matter with Director Shen Yichen and I have already requested for the resources to be allocated to you. Your participation in this variety show will not affect your filming time for
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, you have to cherish and work hard for the opportunity given to you now. You might not have had any other options in the past, but you have been given the opportunity to choose a better career path now.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning looked at Vera suspiciously.
She had been so rude and mean to her yesterday but she was being way too polite to her today.
&x201C;I can promise you that I will participate in the variety show, but I hope that we can each take a step back. I really enjoy and love the ancient style and the traditional Chinese outfits. Therefore, even if I stop shooting those short videos, I would still like to take some photos and share them with my fans on my social media account.&x201D;
The both of them continued staring at one another, both refusing to give in.
In the end, Vera finally gave in and said, &x201C;Okay but I must review the content first.&x201D;
Both of them were stunned with the reaction of the other party.
They had not expected that the other party would so easily agree to each of their conditions.
&x201C;I know that you merely see me as an artiste who has a bad reputation and has already been blacklisted, and I also understand that you are very hostile towards me. Although I do not know the reason behind your hostility, I am not a petty person and I can simply let it go. However, even if you hate me, I hope that you will do your job properly and not stab me in the back after gaining my trust. Vera, I want to know if you have come here to help me build my career up or if you are here to&x2026;destroy me?&x201D;
Vera was shocked by the sudden question and the serious expression on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face.
After a short pause, Vera coughed before she replied, &x201C;There are so many people who think that you are just a pig who does not deserve to be in Guangying Media. I am trying to help you prove them all wrong. You will know my true intentions when you work with me during these three months.&x201D;
&x201C;I will wait and see, then.&x201D;
&x201C;The variety show that you will be participating in will be the first time you are joining any show that focuses on the funny route. Therefore, it is very important for you to look through and study the documents that I have just given you,&x201D; Vera said calmly.
&x201C;So, who said that I am a pig?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Vera immediately.
