Chapter 197: Is it That Exciting?

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

Xu Beishen did not say anything but she quietly retreated to her own bedroom with her luggage in tow. She did not believe that the character and personality that Jiang Yuning had displayed on the show was her true personality. She believed all celebrities to be selfish and that Jiang Yuning was merely putting on an act. She felt that it was even more unbelievable because Jiang Yuning could talk ruthlessly when she was all alone with her, but was as meek and humble as a sheep in front of others.

Was Lu Jingzhi also deceived by her appearance?

Xu Beishen had a lot of thoughts and struggles running through her mind. At this moment, she really could not accept the fact that Jiang Yuning was a more charming and pleasing person than she was.

In fact, the production team had even given her a new nickname, stating that even the dogs would dislike Xu Beishen.

The production team had finally discovered the two plain truths after filming one episode. Firstly, they discovered that Jiang Yuning was a really pleasant and likable person and secondly, they discovered what a horrible person Xu Beishen truly was.

Jiang Yuning was supposed to be the hated and blacklisted artiste and initially, the production team had expected her to cause them some trouble. However, in the end, Jiang Yuning was well liked and praised by the entire production team and crew.

On the other hand, the highly-educated Xu Beishen whom the production team initially had high expectations for gave the production crew such a big headache at the end of the day.

The production team was even contemplating implementing a rule to eliminate one of the groups so that they could just get rid of Xu Beishen immediately.

Otherwise, if she would suddenly decide to feed the sharks during the next episode, would the production crew have to follow her and risks their lives then?

This person was too selfish and wilful.


It was already late at night but the light in the bedroom on the second floor of the villa was still switched on.

Jiang Yuning was already sleeping soundly while Lu Jingzhi sat on the edge of the bed and carefully treated the wounds on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hands.

She was an actress, a celebrity, but she did not seem to care about her own body at all. She had scars all over her body. Who would want to hire or cast her in any of their advertisements?

Lu Jingzhi felt his heart hurting and he was distressed upon seeing her swollen fingers and the wounds all over her hands. He squeezed her hand and held it for a long time, persuading himself to allow her to continue participating in .

Jiang Yuning felt as though there was something strange about her hand but she was so exhausted from the past two days that she simply muttered in her sleep. &x201C;Second brother&x2026;it itches. It itches.&x201D;

Lu Jingzhi patted her gently on her head before he stored the first aid kit and gently placed her hand back under the quilt. After that, Lu Jingzhi picked up her drama scripts before going through them diligently.

Sooner or later, Jiang Yuning would eventually force Lu Jingzhi to take up martial arts to protect her.

Lu Jingzhi put on his glasses as he read through the drama scripts under the dim light.

Although the quality of the drama was the most important criteria, it was also extremely important for Lu Jingzhi to see whether Jiang Yuning would be involved in any kissing or bed scenes if she took on the role.

If she would have to be involved in those scenes, then&x2026;

When Jiang Yuning woke up the next day, she saw that Lu Jingzhi had already left some of the scripts that he had chosen on top of her dressing table. Her eyes lit up immediately. Was there anything that second brother could not do?

Vera had passed her a total of eleven drama scripts from various different genres. Jiang Yuning had already glanced through all of the drama scripts and she especially like three of them, but could not make a final decision.

Coincidentally, the three scripts that she liked were also chosen by Lu Jingzhi.

It seemed as though she had already cultivated quite an incredible tacit understanding between second brother and herself.

When Vera arrived at the villa later that morning, she placed the three drama scripts in front of Vera before she asked, &x201C;Which drama do you think is the best out of these three dramas?&x201D;

There was an ancient drama among the three drama scripts but even though it would be a major production, the storyline is pretty similar to that of . Although Jiang Yuning would be able to take on the role of the second female lead, Vera believed that Jiang Yuning did not need to star in a similar ancient drama at the moment.

The second drama was a more modern and inspirational drama where Jiang Yuning would be playing the role of a policewoman. Although this kind of publicity was indeed very suitable for Jiang Yuning at the moment, Vera still felt that this was not the best choice for her.

The third drama was a drama about the olden days in the Republic of China. The drama was titled and the storyline revolved around a bitter and pitiful orphan who had lost her parents during a war. The woman would eventually take on the name Li Zhimong and she would dress up as a man so that she could participate in the war. However, at the end of the war after she had passed away, they had wanted to set up a monument for her but they were only filled with regrets because at the end of the day, nobody knew what her real name was.

&x201C;This one,&x201D; Vera replied as she pointed at the drama script. &x201C;Because in this script, you are a female who deserves recognition and it is also very memorable and significant because you would have to cut your hair for this drama.&x201D;

&x201C;Go and die. So, you are telling me that you would choose this drama because you want to see me cut my hair?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she glared at Vera.

&x201C;Of course not. First of all, the script is already completed and there is a very complete and fulfilling storyline in which the character that you will be playing is very well-rounded and adored. Secondly, you would be able to promote the spirit of female patriotism by taking on this role. Furthermore, you would be taking the role of the first female lead if you choose to take on this drama. Thirdly, there are no kissing or any bed scenes in this drama. You will not even be involved in any love lines, which would definitely be very important to the second young master Lu. Fourthly, this drama would definitely be a new challenge for you to take your acting skills to the next level. I am certain that you would definitely be able to take on other ancient dramas in the future, but if you choose to take on the role in this drama, it could help increase your value within the acting industry. It really depends on what you think.&x201D;

&x201C;Alright then. I will audition for this drama,&x201D; Jiang Yuning agreed immediately.

&x201C;The only problem is that most of your fans are younger and it would be difficult for them to accept and appreciate this type of drama,&x201D; Vera said out loud as she placed her hand under her chin.

&x201C;That would not be an issue.&x201D; Jiang Yuning could not help but laughed out loud. &x201C;In a short while, I will dress up as a man for you and you will definitely understand what I mean when you look at me.&x201D;

Vera was astounded.

What other hidden skills did this little fox have?

It was not trendy for a female actress to dress up as a male in a drama. However, the most difficult part was how the female actress would carry herself and emphasize the masculinity and charisma of a man.

&x201C;I had previously auditioned for a role where I had to dress up as a man. However, I was not given the role in the end. Although I did not get the role, I have realized that I have the potential to dress up as a man.&x201D;

After speaking, Jiang Yuning took a small full body suit from her closet before she went into the bathroom.

Jiang Yuning finally stepped out of the bathroom after half an hour and when she did, Vera had the shock of her life.

&x201C;Do you really have such a hidden talent?&x201D;

At this exact moment, Jiang Yuning really validated the statement that if a woman wanted to look better than a man, the man could simply step aside and make way for her.

Jiang Yuning was wearing a deep V-cut suit and she had intentionally painted her skin darker with the use of a bronzer. She had contoured her face to further sharpen her facial features and she had also worn a short black wig. When Jiang Yuning stood and glanced at Vera with a cool expression on her face, Vera could literally feel goose bumps all over her body.

She was really as handsome as a British man!

&x201C;So, what do you think? Can I pull off looking like a good-looking and masculine man?&x201D;

&x201C;Alright then, I have officially made up my mind! I will contact the production team for the drama to arrange for an audition for you,&x201D; Vera replied, feeling extremely satisfied. She quickly took a few photographs of Jiang Yuning who was dressed up as a man.

Wouldn&x2019;t second young master Lu be extremely amazed when he saw those pictures?

Well, it seemed as though she was overthinking it.

Vera quickly diverted her attention back to the matter at hand.

&x201C;However, I have to let you know that if you choose to play the role of the first female lead in this drama, you would be covered in dirt and don simple clothing for most parts of the drama. Most of the time, you would not be as glamorous as you have been before. However, I believe that we will be able to discuss this matter with the director if you are really chosen for the role. You always have to remember that the most important thing would be your acting skills. Your acting skills! Do you understand?&x201D;

&x201C;Yes, I got it.&x201D; Jiang Yuning simply nodded her head.

&x201C;Besides that, I almost forgot to ask you. In the past two days, did you get involved in any conflict with that woman during the variety show? I have heard some rumors and gossip going around that the production team and crew do not really like Xu Beishen. Is that true?&x201D;

&x201C;You should not say things like that. It makes me feel as though the production team would come up with another trick up their sleeves and that they might force me to be in the same group as Xu Beishen in our next episode,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she started removing her makeup. &x201C;Touch wood. Touch wood. I should not be cursing myself!&x201D;

&x201C;Is it that exciting? Can I join you for your next shoot then?&x201D; Vera asked with full interest.

&x201C;Would you be able to walk continuously for twenty-four hours without any sleep, drink dirty water, scrape some tree bark when necessary, or relieve yourself out in the wild?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she rolled her eyes at Vera.
