Therefore, no matter how popular a celebrity was, or no matter how much fans she had, she should still be able to know the difference between right and wrong.
So, what if she had more than sixty million fans? All that had turned to nothing once her empire collapsed overnight.
What ensued after that was the result of the police investigation. Several fans were suspected and eventually convicted for the crime of intimidation and assault and they were taken by to the detention centre by the police.
They were sentenced to receive a seven days&x2019; lock up at the detention centre because of the severity and impact brought about by the crime.
When Jiang Yuning heard that the perpetrators of the assault had already been detained, she finally instructed Vera to send the Ginger Candy home with her family. Besides that, Jiang Yuning also asked Vera to prepare some funds for the fan girl after she learned that the fan girl and her family were having some financial difficulties. After noticing her literary skills, Jiang Yuning could not allow this young girl&x2019;s talents to be buried.
Nan Xinyue&x2019;s affairs were discussed on the internet throughout the entire day.
No one would have imagined that Jiang Yuning, who had less than ten million followers, would actually have such a large destructive power.
Of course, there were also some people who came up with several conspiracy theories, one of which they believed that Jiang Yuning was a scary mastermind who had been scheming behind the scenes the entire time.
Some people even voiced their opinions, stating they believed that Jiang Yuning had manipulated everyone right from the very beginning. They said that Jiang Yuning had started finding faults with Nan Xinyue to attract the attention of her fans. After successfully sparking the conflict between Nan Xinyue&x2019;s fans and her own Ginger Candies, Jiang Yuning made a meticulous attack in blowing the matter out of proportions after Nan Xinyue&x2019;s fans made a radical move. Everything had been premeditated and Jiang Yuning was merely killing two birds with one stone.
They assumed that first of all, she wanted to gain more attention so that she could inevitably convert some of the passers-by into her loyal fans. Secondly, she wanted to win the favor of the government. Thirdly, she wanted to prove that she would be able to defeat Nan Xinyue and last by not least, the main reason why Jiang Yuning had done all these was just so she could rob Nan Xinyue of her role as the first female lead of
This was inevitable. The forest was huge and there were many different kinds of birds all around.
No matter what Jiang Yuning did, there were always people who would try to find fault with her.
After Nan Xinyue&x2019;s incident, the director of
The director would never have expected a blacklisted artiste such Jiang Yuning to have such great influence on the public.
Therefore, after negotiating the compensation issue with Nan Xinyue&x2019;s agency, the director immediately made a phone call to Guangying Media.
The call was answered by Shen Yichen himself and he immediately rejected the other party without even thinking twice.
This was because Vera had already submitted a report to the company stating that Jiang Yuning was preparing to audition for the role of the first female lead in
Later in the afternoon on the same day, Nan Xinyue attended a press conference arranged by her agency to face the general public and offer them her most sincere public apology for the behaviour of her fans.
As she faced the countless media outlets and reporters that had attended the press conference, Nan Xinyue burst into tears and apologized for failing to set a positive example for her fans. She also announced that she would be withdrawing from the entertainment industry and that she would return to campus immediately as a student to further her studies.
&x201C;Nan Xinyue is not that dumb after all. At least she knows how to leave a way out for herself.&x201D;
Vera folded her arms with a deep expression on her face after watching Nan Xinyue&x2019;s press conference.
But, where had Jiang Yuning gone to?
When Vera saw that Jiang Yuning had already gone to her dressing table to try out the cosmetics that the international makeup company had sent to her, Vera hurried over to her side immediately. &x201C;We have just won a big game, but why are you not excited at all?&x201D;
&x201C;All I wanted to do was to get justice for my Ginger Candies. Furthermore, the complaint letter was written by the fan girl, so I do not deserve to get any credit for how things turned out. As for Nan Xinyue, her career is already over, so what else is there to be excited about?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she picked up one of the makeup palettes to take a closer look at it.
&x201C;But the netizens have started to demonize you again. They are all of the opinion that you have done this to Nan Xinyue to get her out of the picture, thus creating an opportunity to rob her of the role as the first female lead for the youth idol drama,
&x201C;There will always be those who will speculate on the thoughts and motives of others, and they would come up with all sorts of assumptions to justify these speculations. This matter will eventually be resolved when they find out that I am actually auditioning for the role of the first female lead for
&x201C;You are right&x2026;but this drama is all over the hot search on the internet right now. Are you really not concerned or interested at all?&x201D;
&x201C;If you really think that this drama would be a good opportunity for me, you would have already found a way and taken steps to get me the role for this drama. So, why should I be bothered about this matter when you are not?&x201D;
&x201C;Who says that I am not bothered about it?&x201D; Vera asked as she glared at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I am only holding back because I know what you want. Furthermore, since your popularity has already risen in that direction, your career path will be directly shaped in that manner if you were to pick another similar drama. There would be very little chance for you to change your path after your audience have already shaped their perception of you.&x201D;
&x201C;Inform Xue Li that I am going to audition for the role of the first female lead of
Jiang Yuning had already tried all of the cosmetics as they were having this conversation.
The quality of the cosmetics was really exceptional. It was indeed an old and established brand with a century-long history.
&x201C;Alright, I got it. Yuning, I see that your private pool is now filled in. Are you two currently using it?&x201D; Vera asked out of curiosity. She had noticed the sparkling water in the pool as soon as she entered the room.
When Jiang Yuning heard Vera&x2019;s question, she rolled her eyes immediately. &x201C;Second brother wanted to use it because he was afraid that the production team would plan for the third episode of
&x201C;So&x2026;were you guys really just swimming?&x201D; Vera asked as she looked at Jiang Yuning, hoping to hear some gossip.
&x201C;We were really just swimming! I swear!&x201D; Jiang Yuning shivered and felt a headache coming when she thought of the number of times that she had accidentally gulped down some water.
Moreover, Lu Jingzhi was really not interested in getting intimate inside the pool at all.
&x201C;But why do I feel that you look very pitiful right now?&x201D;
After listening to Vera&x2019;s words, Jiang Yuning sat down on the sofa before she looked at Vera with a blank expression on her face. &x201C;Why do I feel as though you are one of those fan girls with a crush on romantic relationships?&x201D;
&x201C;Please! Don&x2019;t insult my loyalty to money!&x201D;
Later in the evening, Vera acted as instructed by Jiang Yuning in informing Xue Li and a few of the leaders of the Ginger Candies about their idol auditioning for
Vera had initially thought that the Ginger Candies would definitely oppose to the idea.
However, much to her surprise, the Ginger Candies seemed to accept the idea as it was.
&x201C;I will arrange for a group of fans to take on the task and spread the news to the public. Those so-called experts who think that they are all skilled in psychology can finally take a good look at themselves. Our Yuning is not even interested in any twilight or clouds at all.&x201D;
&x201C;Understood, Sister Xue Li!&x201D;
&x201C;Got it +1!&x201D;
&x201C;Protect our idol.&x201D;
&x201C;No matter what drama Sister Yuning chooses to star in, we will always be supporting her!&x201D;
Vera could finally heave a huge sigh of relief. She had really underestimated the Ginger Candies&x2019; ability to understand Jiang Yuning&x2019;s choices. Perhaps it was because the Ginger Candies really trusted Jiang Yuning, and would thus always support her unconditionally.
Jiang Yuning did not make a fuss after the incident involving Nan Xinyue. She did not trample on Nan Xinyue&x2019;s reputation, nor did she try to hype up the fact that the Ginger Candies finally got the justice they deserved.
She was still her usual self and she did not follow the path that any other artistes would have taken.
Some of the speculative netizens tried to trigger Jiang Yuning by insisting that Jiang Yuning was bound to become the first female lead of
However, they were left speechless when the Ginger Candies started releasing news about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s upcoming audition for another drama.
I am sorry&x2026;
My idol is going to audition for the role of the first female lead of another drama. She is not interested in any twilight or clouds. So, please leave her alone already!
