Very soon, the deputy director of the program quickly entered the studio and went up the stage to explain the flow and the specific settings of the recording to Jiang Yuning. It was only at this point that Jiang Yuning suddenly realized that she would be required to put on the robot suit throughout the entire program.
Furthermore, the main requirement was for her to be as stupid and funny as possible in the robot suit.
Jiang Yuning finally understood all the strange looks that people had given her as soon as she stepped out of her dressing room.
She had initially thought that the robot suit was merely a prop for the introductory segment. However, she finally realized that the director had planned it so that they could disgrace her by disguising her so that her face would be hidden throughout the program.
Jiang Yuning was already sweating a lot when she took off the robot head, but she turned and looked at Vera, who was sitting below the stage, before she asked the deputy director of the program, &x201C;Deputy director, I have already watched countless episodes of
&x201C;Well, that is because we have prepared it just for you,&x201D; the deputy director replied immediately. &x201C;Don&x2019;t you think you look so adorable, wearing that robot suit?&x201D;
&x201C;So, does that mean that I do not need to show my face from the start to the end of the program?&x201D;
&x201C;Of course not,&x201D; the deputy director replied. &x201C;We will show your face during the later segment of the show.&x201D;
However, after the first practice, Jiang Yuning realized that she would only be allowed to take off the robot head at the end of the program. Was this what the deputy director had meant when he said that she would be showing her face during the later segment of the program?
&x201C;That was just the practice round. It is now time for the rehearsal.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but smile when she suddenly recalled that Xiya Hotel was also one of the gold sponsors for this variety show. This group of people had already made it extremely clear that they were bullying her because they looked down on her. However, Jiang Yuning did not take all of this to heart because even though her face would be hidden, she could use this opportunity to display the talent that she had in making various different sound effects.
The production crew had initially thought that they would be able to remove the robot from the program. They assumed that Jiang Yuning would definitely throw a fit and leave the recording scene as soon as she found out that she would be wearing the robot suit throughout the entire recording. However, to their surprise, Jiang Yuning did not complain but continued rehearsing as usual. Jiang Yuning did not make any sound effects because she only wanted to show her talent during the official recording. The only thing that Jiang Yuning wanted now was to show Vera what a terrible agent she was.
After rehearsing for about one and a half hours, Vera finally discovered the issue and she quickly stepped onto the stage and stopped the rehearsal immediately. &x201C;Deputy director, are you mistaken about something? Our artiste is not one of your props for your program. What do you mean by this? How can you ask my artiste to be hidden in a robot suit throughout the entire program?&x201D;
The expression on the deputy director&x2019;s face changed immediately and he quickly pulled Vera to the side before he said, &x201C;You should be very clear about the fact that your artiste has not only been blacklisted, but also has such a bad reputation in the entertainment industry. Our director has already given face to Guangying Media and has been gracious enough to allow Jiang Yuning to participate in his program. His only requirement is that she has to put on the robot suit. Therefore, you should just close one eye and leave this matter alone since you have already achieved your purpose.&x201D;
&x201C;My artiste is on the program but her face would be covered from the start to the end of the program. Do you really think that I would have already achieved my purpose?&x201D; Vera asked furiously.
&x201C;Our contract with Guangying Media states that Guangying Media has the right to choose their own artistes to be represented in our program. However, the terms of the contract also state that it is necessary for the artiste to follow the flow of the program as we have intended it to be. If your artiste refuses to cooperate, that would result in a breach of contract. Vera, let me remind you that Jiang Yuning is a blacklisted artiste. Is it really worth wasting so much time and effort on her?&x201D;
Vera was so angry that her cheeks were flushed red. At this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly took off the robot head before she threw it directly in front of Vera. &x201C;Is this&x2026;what they call a top-notch agent from abroad?&x201D;
Vera was stunned by Jiang Yuning&x2019;s sudden outburst.
&x201C;It turns out that under the contract arranged and signed by my top-notch agent, I will not even be able to show my face at all throughout the entire program. Vera, I hope you know that my achievements prove your capability. If this is the kind of arrangement that you can come up with for me, then I would advise you not to continue your career progression in China. You should just return to your own country.&x201D;
Vera was so infuriated that she could not speak at all. This was because she had never expected the entertainment industry in China to be so complicated and tricky.
&x201C;Then&x2026;are you going to continue recording or not? Don&x2019;t waste our time and make the whole team wait for you,&x201D; the deputy director said as he stared at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I want to make a phone call first.&x201D; After that, Jiang Yuning immediately took out her cell phone and made a phone call to Jiang Zhitong.
Jiang Zhitong would be flying abroad tomorrow. He had already planned to meet up with Jiang Yuning before he left. Therefore, as soon as he saw that his daughter was calling, he answered the phone immediately.
&x201C;Dad, Xiya Hotel is one of the gold sponsors for the program,
&x201C;Well, dad is not very clear about that because there are relevant departments in charge of that.&x201D;
&x201C;Then&x2026;what should I do if I wished to withdraw Xiya Hotel&x2019;s sponsorship for this program?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she admired the shocked expression on the deputy director&x2019;s face. She quickly turned the speaker on as she waited for Jiang Zhitong&x2019;s response to her question.
Jiang Zhitong laughed before he replied, &x201C;You are one of the major shareholders of Xiya Hotel. You do not need to ask for your father&x2019;s permission to withdraw the sponsorship. You can make that decision on your own. What happened? Did this program make my daughter unhappy? If that is the case, then dad will make a phone call right away&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Miss Jiang&x2026;&x201D; the deputy director changed his tone immediately. He was suddenly very gentle and charming as he spoke to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Don&x2019;t be impulsive. We can discuss this further.&x201D;
&x201C;Yuning, dad will send one of Xiya Hotel&x2019;s representative over to speak with the director of the program now. I will let him regret bullying my daughter.&x201D;
The deputy director was shaking in fear and he immediately brought a chair over as he comforted Jiang Yuning and asked her to take a seat. &x201C;Miss Jiang, please give me a moment. I will discuss this matter with the director immediately. Do not be angry. We did not know what we were doing.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning sneered as she leaned back against the chair and watched as the deputy director ran to search for the director.
&x201C;Brother, we have seemingly made a huge mistake. Jiang Yuning appears to be a major shareholder of Xiya Hotel.&x201D;
&x201C;How is that possible?&x201D; the director asked as he laughed. &x201C;Didn&x2019;t the Jiang family go bankrupt a few years ago?&x201D;
&x201C;I heard her making a phone call to her father&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Are you in your right mind? Her father has already been missing for so many years. How can you still fall for a cheap trick like that?&x201D; the director asked as he glared at the deputy director. &x201C;This little artiste is so sly. It is really amazing that she could even think of coming up with such a cheap trick.&x201D;
&x201C;You are right. Her father has already disappeared for such a long time. How could she possibly have contacted her father?&x201D; the deputy director replied as he calmed down.
&x201C;Ask her if she want to continue shooting or not. If she does not want to, then ask her to get lost. I am already gracious enough to give her a role dressed in the robot suit. She should learn how to be grateful.&x201D;
The deputy director quickly ran back to Jiang Yuning to give her the director&x2019;s order. He was no longer as gentle and charming as he was before when he spoke this time. &x201C;Jiang Yuning, the director is asking you to stop your nonsense right now if you want to proceed with the shooting. You can get lost if you no longer want to participate.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning listened to what the deputy director had just said and she laughed immediately. The reason why these people were courageous enough to say this was because they did not know that her father was still alive.
That was fine with her.
&x201C;I will be waiting for you guys to beg me to come back. When that time comes, I want your director to serve me tea and apologize to me directly.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning then left the studio together with Vera. The deputy director watched as they walked away. &x201C;She must be crazy.&x201D;
The recording proceeded as usual eventually, but after a short while, the representative sent by Jiang Zhitong arrived at the television and broadcast station. He immediately requested to meet with the director of
&x201C;You can stop producing this variety show. Xiya Hotel wants to completely withdraw our sponsorship for your program.&x201D;
The director was shocked upon hearing what the representative had said and he quickly asked, &x201C;May I know what the problem is? Is there anything wrong with the program?&x201D;
&x201C;There is nothing wrong with the program. The problem is&x2026;you have offended one of the major shareholders of Xiya Hotel. I believe you know who Jiang Yuning is.&x201D;
After speaking, the representative turned around and left immediately.
&x201C;Please do not leave. Please give us another chance&x2026;&x201D; the director quickly pleaded as he ran after the representative.
&x201C;You want another chance? Look for Director Jiang and see if she wants to give you another chance.&x201D;
