Jiang Yuning had suddenly become an internet sensation thanks to her role in
After the television station&x2019;s rating for the first episode of
Vera could not help but snort because some of these variety show had in fact turned Jiang Yuning down when she had approached them in the past. So, had they finally realized how amazing Jiang Yuning really was?
But too bad for them&x2026;
Vera smirked because everything was recorded in her diary now. Since the other producers had looked down on Jiang Yuning and despised her in the past, then she would definitely not allow them to cast Jiang Yuning in their shows so easily.
Moreover, according to the announcement and notice released by the producers, it seemed as though Jiang Yuning&x2019;s popularity would greatly increase after the broadcast of all twelve episodes of the program. This was especially so because of the passers-by who had finally noticed Jiang Yuning because of this program. Although Jiang Yuning&x2019;s skin had gotten a few shades darker due to the filming in the jungle and desert, it seemed as though her reputation had gotten a few shades better instead!
This was the power of the passers-by.
When Vera saw all the publicity and positive reviews surrounding Jiang Yuning, she quickly took the opportunity to liaise and communicate with X Society and Xue Li.
After all, there were also a few other young artistes who belonged in the same category as Jiang Yuning. Since Jiang Yuning was now garnering a lot of attention because of her top rank in the variety show genre, it would be easier for fan fights to break out and also for some of her competitors to resort to creating or stirring up some rumors to bring her down.
&x201C;Even though Yuning is doing very well, make sure that the fans do not go out to brag and show off too much.&x201D; Vera advised Xue Li to take control of all the Ginger Candies.
Vera also sent Xue Li many pictures of Jiang Yuning while she was filming the program. It was so Xue Li could upload a new picture to the fan page every now and then to appease and calm all of the Ginger Candies down.
After that, Vera gave Jiang Yuning a call. &x201C;I am sorry to disturb you now. I know that I told you to rest at home for the time being, but we would never have expected the variety show to be such a hit amongst the audience. Therefore, I have discussed this matter with Director Shen and we both feel that the best step to take right now is to arrange for an exclusive interview later today so that we can debunk any of the netizens&x2019; baseless assumptions.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay then,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;But I am a little too tanned right now.&x201D;
&x201C;That is even better.&x201D;
After all, in the entertainment industry, most of the female artistes were constantly paying a lot of attention to how they looked. Many times, they would refuse to participate in certain programs because they did not want to look ugly or get any darker. These female artistes usually had an extensive amount of makeup on their faces and they would always be dressed in the most glamorous clothing.
As for Jiang Yuning, she did not really care about her image anyway. Therefore, Vera felt that if Jiang Yuning was more natural, she might be able to establish a better rapport and chemistry with the reporter if she looked more approachable.
However, after Vera thought about all the artistes that were represented under Guangying Media, she quickly shook her head and said, &x201C;No, no, no. I think it would be better if you dressed up nicely and come here tomorrow afternoon. I will arrange for a makeup artist for you.&x201D;
This was because the artistes that were represented under Guangying Media had always been those with extremely good backgrounds and statuses in the entertainment industry.
Moreover, more than ninety percent of the artistes signed under Guangying Media had their own masterpiece and works which subsequently established their relevance in the entertainment circle. Some of the top artistes signed under Guangying Media were now the pillars that held Guangying Media in place.
And then there was Jiang Yuning.
Her masterpiece turned out to be her performance in a variety show and she was actually extremely popular because of that.
This made a lot of people very skeptical about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s capability as an actress.
Jiang Yuning understood Vera&x2019;s meaning as soon as she heard her reply.
This was exactly what Director Shen had summarized at a recent meeting with all of the agents. &x201C;Jiang Yuning&x2019;s presence in Guangying Media represents the possibility of divergence and incremental development for artistes signed under Guangying Media. This shows that no one knows how things would turn out in the entertainment industry. Instead of constantly criticizing Jiang Yuning and saying that she does not deserve to be represented under Guangying Media, you might as well grab any available opportunities to find better resources for the artistes that you are managing so you can achieve the things that Jiang Yuning can. Did you all know that Jiang Yuning has already saved a lot of money for the company because of the publicity that she is bringing us?&x201D;
&x201C;Moreover, the entertainment industry is an industry that is constantly evolving. Even if you think that she is not a good actress today, how can you be certain that Jiang Yuning will not be a good actress tomorrow?&x201D;
&x201C;Guangying Media is such a prestigious and well-established company with very strong roots. Its reputation will not suffer so easily just because of the presence of a single artiste. My question is, why do all of you only have so many complaints and comments after Jiang Yuning has made it big in the variety show genre?&x201D;
&x201C;I have only one thing to say&x2014;you guys must be too free!&x201D;
Later that afternoon, Vera went over to the villa to pick Jiang Yuning up and pass her the interview draft in advance.
&x201C;You can relax and you do not need to be so nervous for the interview later. There will be ten questions provided in advance, which you should be able to answer quickly. However, the reporter will also be asking you three questions submitted by fans. Take your time to think your responses through before you answer those questions. However, you do not need to worry even if you answer any of these questions in the wrong manner because the reporter is letting us vet the final content of the interview before they publish it.&x201D;
&x201C;If the reporter asks you any questions about your relationship or your personal life, you can choose to answer those questions at your own discretion.&x201D;
&x201C;Since we are already on this topic, I would also like to ask you what your plans are. When do both you and the second young master Lu want to make your relationship known to the public?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was immediately flustered as soon as she heard Vera&x2019;s question.
&x201C;To be honest, I don&x2019;t know how I can ever make our relationship known to the public because&x2026;of second brother&x2019;s identity, my education level, and a lot of other aspects. I am certain that we will become the top gossip topic on the hot search for quite some time. I am already used to being judged and criticized, so I am not worried about myself. I am not afraid of being laughed at or made fun of for my education level or my family status, but I do not want second brother to be judged and criticized by the netizens because of me. He is the most important person in my life&x2026;&x201D;
After saying that, Jiang Yuning had a sad expression on her face as she lowered her eyes.
Vera did not push any further after listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s explanation.
Even though Jiang Yuning was always very strong and fearless, she had a weakness, and that weakness was Lu Jingzhi.
However, Vera felt that Lu Jingzhi did not even care about all these issues that Jiang Yuning was worried about.
However, Vera was certain that the situation would be complicated in future, especially if Lu Jingzhi wanted a child in future. They would have to deal with this issue sooner or later.
After a short drive, both of them finally arrived at Guangying Media.
In the past, the employees at Guangying Media would always talk amongst themselves as soon as Jiang Yuning stepped into the building. This time, when they saw Jiang Yuning, they all had a very surprised and unreadable expression on their faces.
This was because most of them had watched the first episode of
Therefore, when Jiang Yuning was waiting for the elevator, some of the employees would quietly sneak up to talk to her and wish her good luck. &x201C;Good luck, Sister Yuning! Continue doing what you are doing. You were amazing in the first episode!&x201D;
&x201C;See! Even the employees at Guangying Media are your fans now!&x201D; Vera said with a smile on her face as she patted Jiang Yuning gently on her shoulder.
&x201C;This is all thanks to you. It is because you had the foresight to sign me up as a participant of the variety show.&x201D;
&x201C;Do we have to continue praising each another like this?&x201D; Vera asked as she rolled her eyes at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;By the way, your brother called me earlier to inform me about this up-and-coming young artiste who is almost at the same level as you are. She had also participated and performed very well in a variety show recently. However, because of you, her popularity has significantly decreased, and that is why your brother wanted to give us a heads up on this matter. He believes that the artiste might resort to using despicable means to reduce your popularity. This actress has a lot of fans who are experts at taunting, criticizing, and scaring other fans. This is why the higher you climb up the ladder, the more obstacles you will face.&x201D;
&x201C;Who is she?&x201D;
After hearing the actress&x2019;s name, Jiang Yuning merely replied, &x201C;Isn&x2019;t she very famous right now?&x201D;
&x201C;You are also famous right now! The only difference is that you used to be famous because people were criticizing and commenting about you negatively. However, all the comments about you are now in a positive light.&x201D;
&x201C;I remember her. She is very beautiful and she is nicknamed the Little Hepburn of the East right?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied indifferently. &x201C;What is the problem? Do you think I would be afraid of her just because she is very famous right now? If she wants to, she can just come right at me. That would be even better because I can save more publicity costs for the company.&x201D;
&x201C;You are only saying that now because you haven&x2019;t seen how powerful her fans are! Her fans can be way more despicable in comparison to Qian Ge&x2019;s fans.&x201D;
