Chapter 156: Oh My, Boss Really Knows How to do Business!
In fact, this was not the first time that Guangying Media had arranged for an interview for its agents. Therefore, the journalist was already pretty experienced at handling this kind of interview. As long as Director Shen Yichen could give them a brief account of what they wanted to focus on, the journalist would be able to grasp the theme accurately. Very soon, Vera was already sitting in the room where the interviews were usually conducted. It was a very bright but comfortable working room which was fully equipped with a coffee bar.
&x201C;Our interview will begin now.&x201D;
Vera portrayed her professional side when she was in front of the cameras as she spoke to the journalist about the main differences between the local agents and the agents that worked abroad, as well as the people that she had already encountered and connected with during her short time here.
Vera could not help but laugh when the journalist then asked her about why she had requested to be Jiang Yuning&x2019;s exclusive agent as soon as she entered Guangying Media. She smiled as she replied confidently, &x201C;That was because I thought that it would be a big challenge. To be honest, I was initially extremely confident that I would be able to keep her under control easily because of the vast amount of experience that I have dealing with all sorts of artistes.&x201D;
&x201C;However, after spending some time with her and getting to know her personally, I have realized that Jiang Yuning really has an amazing personality that is completely beyond my imagination. Now, I feel as though I have already fallen for her spell.&x201D;
The journalist laughed before saying, &x201C;Well, now I am really looking forward to interviewing her next time!&x201D;
&x201C;Then, you had better seize the opportunity because Jiang Yuning will shine and take the spotlight very soon.&x201D;
&x201C;Definitely. Haha. Let us get back to our main focus today. I heard that you have worked in many different industries before you became a professional agent. Can you share some of your working experiences with us?&x201D; the journalist shifted the focus back to Vera in a very professional manner.
&x201C;It is very common to take on some part-time job overseas. As my family was struggling with financial difficulties when I was in college, I had taken on a part-time job selling liquor for a nightclub. My job was to stand on the street with my colleagues at that time to introduce and promote new beer and liquors to passersby. Since we are discussing this topic, I would like to share a little about an unfortunate incident that had happened to me at that time&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Oh my god! That is why all girls should be reminded that they should stay alert and pay attention to their own safety, regardless of whether they are here in China or abroad. Moreover, I can tell that you are a sentimental person, Vera. You have identified the wrong person as your benefactor, and you have spent so many years repaying her for something that she has not done. You must have mixed feelings right now.&x201D; The journalist mentioned some of the key points of Vera&x2019;s story without making her feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.
&x201C;I have just found out about the truth recently. All I feel is lots of guilt and remorse. I feel so bad towards my ex-colleagues&x2014;I had stopped contacting them completely as I had misunderstood them at that time. They saved my life, but I never did thank them for it. As for the other irrelevant people, I choose not to waste any more of my time on them,&x201D; Vera replied sincerely as she faced the cameras.
&x201C;Well, what are your goals and expectations for the future?&x201D;
&x201C;I hope&x2026;that Miss Jiang will be able to rise to fame soon, in a good and likable manner.&x201D;
The interview eventually ended in a very relaxed and joyful manner. Guangying Media would be using two different platforms to promote the interview. First of all, they would circulate the interview video through many different media outlets and they will also publish the interview in the Guangying Media&x2019;s magazine.
There were two main points from Vera&x2019;s interview that they wanted to focus on. The first point was the importance of women&x2019;s safety and the second main point was the fact that she had recognized and been indebted to the wrong person all this while. The interview would be circulated in both the entertainment and the social industries.
X Society also played its role in circulating the video as they knew that if the focus of the interview was on female safety, it would not garner any interest from those who were only interested in the news and gossip in the entertainment industry. Therefore, they changed the title of the interview to
Additionally, X Society also changed the title of the topic related to Vera&x2019;s benefactor to
Although X Society did not publish the articles on their own website, the article caught the attention of many netizens because X Society contributed to the situation and played a major role behind the scenes.
&x201C;Wow. I did not expect everything to run so smoothly. If Yin Qingyu dares to step out and take any action right now, we can make her the center of attention immediately,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she admired her masterpiece.
All that was left right now was for them to wait and see if Yin Qingyu would take the bait.
Vera stared at Jiang Yuning and after a short while, she kept thanking her repeatedly.
&x201C;If you really want to thank someone, you should thank yourself because you are not like Yin Qingyu,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she patted Vera&x2019;s shoulder before standing up. However, Jiang Yuning nearly fell down as soon as she stood up because her legs were still weak from the previous night.
Vera quickly helped Jiang Yuning to stand up straight. &x201C;What is wrong?&x201D;
&x201C;I need you to hold onto me today. I am afraid that I will embarrass myself,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she blushed slightly.
Vera understood the situation immediately after listening to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Don&x2019;t you guys have any self-control at all?&x201D;
&x201C;You will understand when you get married in future.&x201D;
Men are bloodthirsty wolves. Especially men like Lu Jingzhi.
On the other hand, Ku Jie was wearing a cap as he made a cocktail in front of his bar counter. He had opened the bar three years ago in a very discreet manner and its main purpose was to allow him to gather news and gossip about the entertainment industry. There were also a few artistes who had been scouted when they were at this bar.
Of course, no one knew that Ku Jie was in fact the boss of this bar.
The real bartender stood next to Ku Jie and he looked at him stressfully, with a confused expression on his face. Was the boss dissatisfied with his skills?
&x201C;Cough. Cough. Boss, your Bloody Mary is turning out blue.&x201D;
&x201C;Shut up!&x201D; Ku Jie replied as he frowned. &x201C;Forget it, I will go and serve the customers instead.&x201D;
If his assumption was right, Yin Qingyu would definitely drop by the bar at this time. This was because Xiao K had specifically informed her that Jiang Muyang&x2019;s working hours were from nine o&x2019;clock in the morning until noon.
However, he also knew that she would not necessarily show up today.
When it was close to noon, Ku Jie was about to change out of his clothes and leave when at this time, Yin Qingyu finally stepped into the bar.
She had put on heavy makeup on her face and she was wearing a black tube top with an A-line skirt. She was also carrying a branded handbag in her hand as she entered the bar with an arrogant look on her face.
Ku Jie was serving liquor to some other guests at this time.
Yin Qingyu sat down by the window and then told the bartender, &x201C;I want him to serve me.&x201D;
The bartender glanced at Ku Jie before he walked over and whispered into his ear.
A short while later, Ku Jie walked over to Yin Qingyu. &x201C;It&x2019;s you.&x201D;
&x201C;I have not seen you in a few years. Why have you gotten uglier and more pitiful over the years? You were one of the top students in college but you are now actually working as a waiter in a bar? Muyang, didn&x2019;t you return to China because of your sister? What happened? Has she forgotten you because she thinks she is a big shot now?&x201D; Yin Qingyu asked as she looked at Ku Jie.
&x201C;What do you want to order?&x201D; Ku Jie asked, as though he did not hear what she had just said.
&x201C;Bring me the most expensive bottle of liquor that you have here. I will also book the entire place tonight. Whatever anyone orders tonight will be on me. How about that? Am I giving you enough face?&x201D; Yin Qingyu replied before taking her gold card out and placing it on the table. She obviously did it because she wanted to humiliate Ku Jie.
Ku Jie turned around and looked at the bartender before he said, &x201C;Bring out a bottle of DRC to satisfy this rich lady over here. She has also booked the entire bar tonight. You can charge everything to her tab tonight.&x201D;
The manager, who was standing in front of the table, looked at Yin Qingyu as soon as he heard Ku Jie&x2019;s order. Wow, this was a very wealthy woman.
The manager knew that his boss&x2019; precious DRC collection was worth more than a few hundred thousand yuan per bottle.
Oh my, boss really knows how to do business!
