Afterwards, Jiang Yuning could feel an obvious difference in the treatment that she was receiving from the production crew.
Most of the production crew members would look at Jiang Yuning with a pitiful and miserable expression on their faces, especially for the staff members who were present when Jiang Yuning was acting out her scene the previous night. While her acting skills were not actually that bad, she was constantly put in the spotlight and criticized to the point that she had such a bad reputation online. Now, she was even being targeted and bullied by the second female lead in the cast. Jiang Yuning was really very pitiful.
Jiang Yuning did not know what was going on. Therefore, in the morning, she went on to participate in filming the scenes for the group B participants. It was obvious that the other two old actors who were filming together with Jiang Yuning were rather fond of her.
She was not arrogant nor impatient and though she was widely misunderstood, she did not bother explaining and proving herself merely through words. Moreover, she was actually quite good at acting.
Today&x2019;s scene was mainly focused on on Jiang Yuning treating and saving her patients. However, as the shoot progressed smoothly without any errors, Jiang Yuning suddenly called out to the director in charge to halt the filming. &x201C;Director Liu, can we pause for a moment?&x201D;
&x201C;What is wrong?&x201D; Director Liu, who was one of the executive directors responsible for the group B filming, quickly asked Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;The name of the traditional Chinese medicine on this kit is inconsistent with the actual traditional Chinese medication that is placed in it as ecristate corydalis herb is not actually the same as codonopsis pilosula or codonopsis root. This Chinese herb here is actually polygonum vine and it is traditionally used to treat menstrual problems in females. It does not actually help in treating any cuts or wounds,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said to the director in a very serious manner. &x201C;My master has taught me that we should be responsible to the audience and not use the wrong herbs or prescription even though we are merely acting out a scene. Therefore, I hope that the production crew can take note of this to reduce similar errors from occurring again. Since
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s statement, Director Liu immediately called the props team to step forward and asked them, &x201C;How could you guys be so careless in preparing the props?&x201D;
The staff of the props team scratched their head and smiled in embarrassment. &x201C;It was negligence on our part as we did not notice or pay attention to the little details. We did not expect Sister Yuning to be so professional. We can change the props immediately, but we might need Sister Yuning to help us out a little.&x201D;
&x201C;They do not understand Chinese medication very well and it would thus be normal for them to make mistakes. We should not blame them. I can write out a prescription of the herbs that I will need and I can help the props team to check out a few of the medication boxes that we will be using in the scene.&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly spoke up for the props team.
Director Liu was satisfied after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words and he leaned back against the back of his chair as he waited for them to be done with the preparations.
The props team was fully convinced by Jiang Yuning&x2019;s knowledge.
Jiang Yuning obviously took her role seriously and she had clearly learned and gained as much knowledge about Chinese medication as she could even though she was only playing the role of the third female lead.
Very soon, the props team had already prepared a new set of herbs and medication with the help of Jiang Yuning. At this time, Director Liu suddenly made a joke and asked, &x201C;Jiang Yuning, I am sweating so much and suffering from heatstroke. Is there any Chinese medication available to alleviate my symptoms?&x201D;
&x201C;If you really want it, director, I can prepare a prescription for you. I am just afraid that you would not dare to try it. Hahaha&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. You can prepare it and I will try it. Come on, let&x2019;s redo the last scene all over again,&x201D; Director Liu replied. He was obviously in a very good mood.
Throughout the whole morning, the entire filming for group B progressed smoothly. With the help of the two experienced old actors, Jiang Yuning managed to gain insight in ways to improve her own acting. In addition, she was also very willing to learn from the more experienced actors. Therefore, the two older actors were also very keen to pass on their skills and knowledge to her, as though they had already found a successor.
On the other hand, in comparison to the progress of group B, it seems as though the filming for group A was not progressing smoothly.
All the scenes involving Qian Ge had repeated NGs because her expression was dull and tired as she had stayed up all night to practice her singing. Director Shen Guobang looked very angry and frustrated.
It was not that she did not have any acting skills, but it seemed as though she was not focused and she did not put in her best efforts at all.
&x201C;Qian Ge, you can go back and rest now. Do not appear in front of me anymore today,&x201D; Director Shen Guobang said mercilessly to Qian Ge as he used his hand to support his head that was already hurting. At this time, Jiang Yuning, who had already finished filming her part for group B, had already came over to observe and watch the performance of the cast from group A.
Qian Ge was not afraid of being humiliated in front of Yao Fan or Song Chenxing. However, the most unbearable thing for her was being embarrassed in front of Jiang Yuning.
Therefore, as Qian Ge was leaving the scene, she turned around and glared at Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning ignored her without even glancing in her direction.
She was completely fearless.
Later in the afternoon, there was havoc brewing amongst the crew of
This was because some of Qian Ge&x2019;s fans had heard the rumors that Qian Ge had suppressed and bullied the newcomer Jiang Yuning. The rumors stated that Qian Ge was an extremely vicious person who would do anything to harm Jiang Yuning.
As soon as the news spread around the internet, Qian Ge&x2019;s fans were all frustrated and angry because they felt that she was being humiliated.
[Our Qian Ge is recognised as a good and humble person all around the country. Why would she bully the newcomer? Some people just want attention but please don&x2019;t overdo it!]
[Everyone in the entertainment industry knows that Qian Ge is well known for her hospitality and her kindness. Bullying a newcomer? Is Jiang Yuning even qualified to be bullied by Qian Ge?]
[This crew refuses to replace Jiang Yuning even though we had requested it earlier. Now, she is even bullying our fairy. Jiang Yuning is toxic!]
[Dear fellow fans, let&x2019;s spread the news and completely destroy Jiang Yuning tonight!]
[Chairman of the fan club, please arrange for some people to visit and comfort our precious Qian Ge.]
Qian Ge had debuted as a singer. Therefore, her fans were all very experienced at defending and boycotting other artistes.
In just one afternoon, they had already created numerous hot searches, such as #QianGeHumiliated and #QianGeWarmAndHumble. They outnumbered the scarce number of fans that Jiang Yuning had and they also commented on the official blog of
On the other side, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fans were also outraged and mad at this outburst.
However, they were fewer in number and therefore, it was impossible for them to approach Qian Ge&x2019;s fans head-on.
[Do you know difficult it has been for our sister to have the courage to start all over again? Please just leave her alone already.]
[Stop torturing and suffocating people who have done nothing wrong towards you! Be careful because you might get your retribution one day!]
[I am so mad right now! One day, our Sister Yuning will be able to prove all of you wrong!]
This issue had turned into a very big and troublesome matter mostly because the fans who were fighting for the rights of their beloved artiste were all stubborn and unwilling to look at the facts or listen to any justifications at all.
In fact, Qian Ge&x2019;s fan club was not doing her a favor by making this issue a big matter. Instead, they were only highlighting the fact that Qian Ge was bullying a newcomer.
Jiang Yuning finally finished acting her scene late in the evening.
At this time, the young paparazzo quickly updated Jiang Yuning on everything that had happened earlier in the afternoon. &x201C;Sister Yuning, I have already recorded some videos and Brother Ku Jie also has some information on his hand about both of them. Do you want to expose them to the public? I have found out that Qian Ge is actually quite notorious in the entertainment industry. Most people in the entertainment circle know what kind of person she is, but none have bothered to waste their time dealing with her.&x201D;
&x201C;I want to see what Director Shen Guobang intends to do first. If he decides to kick her out of the cast, we will then release the news about her,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. After a few seconds, she asked once again, &x201C;Are you still handling the matters related to my fan club? How many active members do we have now?&x201D;
&x201C;We have about one thousand active members at the moment. What do you want to do?&x201D; the young paparazzo asked.
&x201C;I want to create a team specializing in diminishing all the fake rumors about me and also to provide some positive publicity for me.&x201D;
As long as Jiang Yuning asked, all of her fans would be more than willing to help her out.
&x201C;Alright then. Sister Yuning, it would be better if you go back and rest first. Do not make brother-in-law wait for you for too long,&x201D; the young paparazzo replied as he accompanied Jiang Yuning back to the bed and breakfast. However, on their way back, they found out that there had been a car accident at the crossroad not too far from the bed and breakfast.
