At this time, the production team of
This was the second most important decision that Director Mong had made after deciding to award the role of the first female lead to Jiang Yuning.
There were rumors going around stating that Xiao Chennan&x2019;s team immediately cleared his schedule to make time for
The public and netizens were all vey puzzled. Why would such an inconspicuous and underrated historical drama attract Xiao Chennan&x2019;s attention?
As soon as the production team announced that Xiao Chennan would be part of the cast,
What did it mean if Xiao Chennan was added into the cast of
This was a historical drama, so how could it ever be compared to a youth idol drama?
After the news about Xiao Chennan was released to the public, the fans of
Most importantly, Ling Fei was extremely frustrated. She had always been a huge fan of Xiao Chennan and had already tried to request for his collaboration a couple of times through many different ways in the past, but he had never responded to any of these requests. She was very annoyed by the fact that Xiao Chennan would now be starring in the same drama as Jiang Yuning even though there would not be any intimate or romantic scenes between the both of them in the drama.
However, Jiang Yuning and Xiao Chennan was indeed a very fresh combination.
The netizens felt very conflicted at this time because they did not know if they should trust in Xiao Chennan&x2019;s decision or whether they should continue dissing Jiang Yuning.
Dilemma! This was so troubling!
However, they decided that their sense of expectations exceeded the feeling of discomfort that Jiang Yuning had caused them. Therefore, they decided to leave Jiang Yuning alone for the time being.
At this time, Ling Fei&x2019;s team could no longer stand Ling Fei&x2019;s wilfulness. Therefore, they called Director Mong&x2019;s personal assistant to ask if Director Mong would be willing to replace Jiang Yuning and give the role of the first female lead to Ling Fei instead.
Director Mong&x2019;s personal assistant thought that there was something wrong with her ears.
They were dissing and criticizing the drama just two days ago and now, they had a 180-degree change of heart?
How shameless could they be?
After discussing the matter with Director Mong, the assistant quickly returned the other party&x2019;s phone call. &x201C;I am sorry but our director is really very selective with his choice for the first female lead. There is no room for negotiation and he is certain that his only choice is Jiang Yuning.&x201D;
After hanging up on the phone, the assistant could not help but to roll her eyes before she looked at Director Mong and complained, &x201C;Who do they think they are? Do they really think our drama is like some vegetable in the market that they can pick and let go of as they please? How could someone like that even be compared to Sister Yuning?&x201D;
&x201C;So, even you are calling her Sister Yuning now?&x201D; Director Mong could not stop himself from laughing out loud.
&x201C;Director Mong, you are only making fun of me because you do not know how incredible Sister Yuning really is!&x201D; the young personal assistant was already in her fan girl mode. &x201C;But Director Mong, if the news that Ling Fei tried to get into the cast of
&x201C;We should just focus on our own preparations for the drama instead of creating trouble for others right now,&x201D; Director Mong replied as he did not intend to waste any of his precious time on retaliation.
The only thing they had done today was to announce the candidate that he had cast as the first male lead of the drama.
When the true background of
Ling Fei was very upset when she learnt that she was rejected by Director Mong and she immediately lost her temper at her agent in the company&x2019;s dressing room. &x201C;In what way is Jiang Yuning better than me? Both my reputation and acting skills are better than her in every way. Why is she so lucky?&x201D;
&x201C;Fei Fei, even if we are not able to grab this opportunity this time, we can try again in future. Do not be discouraged,&x201D; the agent tried to appease Ling Fei.
&x201C;I have already tried contacting Xiao Chennan&x2019;s team for the past two years for an opportunity to collaborate and work together with him. Why can&x2019;t they give me a chance? Moreover, Jiang Yuning always has so many tricks up her sleeves. Who can guarantee that she would not try to seduce Xiao Chennan when they are filming together? Xiao Chennan is such an eligible bachelor&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t be capricious, Fei Fei. Xiao Chennan would never be interested in someone like Jiang Yuning.&x201D;
After the encounter, Director Mong&x2019;s personal assistant quickly told Vera about Ling Fei&x2019;s shameless attempt to try and rob Jiang Yuning her role as the first female lead.
After listening to the assistant&x2019;s story, Vera was shocked at how Ling Fei&x2019;s team had approached the matter.
This was in fact a very sensitive issue in the entertainment industry. If news about Ling Fei&x2019;s attempt got out to the public, Ling Fei&x2019;s reputation would be tarnished immediately.
&x201C;How could they even compare Sister Yuning to Ling Fei? She is really shameless and does not know her own place!&x201D;
Vera could not help but smile when she heard the personal assistant&x2019;s words. &x201C;So, are you also one of the Ginger Candies now?&x201D;
&x201C;I am a huge fan! I can&x2019;t wait for the next episode of
In fact, Jiang Yuning did not know what was going on because she had been busy reading her script during the day and practicing some combat and shooting skills at night. Whenever she had some free time, she would continue writing her song and practice her singing. Although her days were mostly packed to the brim, she felt that it was very fulfilling.
On Wednesday, Vera accompanied Jiang Yuning to go to the set to film the advertisement for Cai Ling.
When Jiang Yuning returned to the villa after the shoot, she realized that Sister Liang had also got off work and she heard the sound of water splashing coming from the private swimming pool.
Jiang Yuning quickly told Vera that she could go home and rest. After that, she secretly hid at a corner of the door as she watched the perfect man who was bathing and relaxing in the swimming pool all by himself.
Lu Jingzhi was resting at the edge of the pool and at this time, his arms looked even more pumped and muscular than usual because he had just exercised.
His skin looked so plump and firm and the water droplets on his upper body were clearly visible as they glistened under the moonlight.
After living with Lu Jingzhi, Jiang Yuning had discovered another secret about Lu Jingzhi. Aside from having obsessive compulsive disorder, Lu Jingzhi was also very afraid of heat.
&x201C;Have you looked enough yet?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi suddenly asked Jiang Yuning who was hiding behind him.
He did not even glance at her direction, so how did he know that she was peeking at him?
&x201C;How did you know?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning pouted before she walked over to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s side. Lu Jingzhi looked at Jiang Yuning before he replied, &x201C;Did you really think that you could hide it when I can already feel a hole in my back from the way you were staring at me?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning expressed her dissatisfaction by snorting before she lay on the ground by the edge of the swimming pool so that she could be closer to Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Second brother, do you&x2026;do you think that I am too noisy, and is it very suffocating and stressful for you to be around me every day? When I was watching you swim all by yourself, I felt that you seemed to be enjoying this tranquillity.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi raised his hand so that he could stroke Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face. &x201C;Before you came home, I felt that the silence was unbearable. I could not stand it and so I decided to come down and swim.&x201D;
&x201C;Does it feel good to have me by your side?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi leaned down slightly and kissed Jiang Yuning gently on her forehead. &x201C;It could not get any better than this.&x201D;
&x201C;So&x2026;do you want to help me with my script?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stared at her and after a short while, he smiled before he said, &x201C;I would act out any bed scenes with you but other than that&x2026;no way.&x201D;
In fact, they had both been very busy lately.
Jiang Yuning had been busy reading and memorizing her script while Lu Jingzhi had been busy attending his meetings.
When they would finally lie in bed together at night, they would usually be depleted of their energy but even so, they were contented as long as they were in the same space. They would not interfere with what the other party was doing and they would usually focus on their own work.
Sometimes when Jiang Yuning felt mischievous, she would crawl over to Lu Jingzhi and stay in his embrace so that she could get him to give her a kiss or two.
&x201C;Second brother, do you know the actor who is going to star in the drama with me?&x201D;
