Everyone had to accompany Jiang Yuning to act out the scene once again.
However, even after repeating the scene over and over again, the director continued calling for NG.
After several NGs, Director Mong finally exploded.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, I have told you previously that if I choose to give this role to you, I can also replace you with someone else if you can&x2019;t give me a satisfactory performance!&x201D;
Everyone was shocked at Director Mong&x2019;s sudden outburst.
They had just began filming the first scene on the first day.
All the production crew members present at the scene could not help themselves from discussing this matter among themselves.
[After everything, Jiang Yuning is still not up to par to play the role of the first female lead. I have a feeling that Director Mong is going to change the first female lead soon.]
[Jiang Yuning&x2019;s acting skills will never be up to Director Mong&x2019;s standards. I can&x2019;t believe that she could make Director Mong lose his temper on the very first day itself.]
[This is just the first day of filming. How is she going to continue filming for the next few months?]
[I really want to persuade Jiang Yuning to give up already. Why is still trying to force something that is not going to happen? She should just return to recording her variety programs. Why does she want to get scolded and reprimanded for her acting?]
Jiang Yuning could hear all the harsh comments and criticism by the people around her.
However, she stood still without moving and she had a stubborn look on her face.
How could she just forget it?
Why would she just forget it?
Just because Director Mong had lost his temper and yelled at her on the first day of filming?
&x201C;Let&x2019;s take a break. You should go back and rest first. There is no way you can continue acting in this state,&x201D; Xiao Chennan said as he walked over to Jiang Yuning when he saw how pale she looked. &x201C;Your acting skills are not terrible. It is simply because Director Mong is very demanding and has very high expectations.&x201D;
&x201C;Initially, I had very high expectations for you. However, I am very disappointed in you right now because you don&x2019;t even know the meaning of patriotism!&x201D; Director Mong replied as Jiang Yuning tried to spoke to him. After a short while, he looked at Jiang Yuning before he said, &x201C;I will give you one last chance. You have two days before you come back and show me what you are capable of. If you are still unable to portray the spirit of patriotism after two days, I will cancel our contract. You should know that I am a man of my word. If I say that I will do it, trust me that I will definitely do it. Let&x2019;s film another scene first.&x201D;
When the young paparazzo saw how fierce Director Mong was, he quickly picked up Jiang Yuning&x2019;s coat before he wrapped it around her shoulders. &x201C;Sister Yuning, are you okay? Director Mong is really too fierce.&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s palms were already sweating and she was breaking out in cold sweat. Her mind was a blank and it was also a big blow to her self-esteem.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, let&x2019;s sit over there.&x201D;
The young paparazzo helped Jiang Yuning sit by the side but the production crew and staff members around them were not done with their discussion.
[Even if Director Mong gave her twenty years, Jiang Yuning would never be able to improve on her acting skills. How would she be able to pull this off in just two days?]
[Her acting is already so disappointing in the first scene. How is she going to continue filming the other scenes?]
[I am already feeling anxious for her. Director Mong is really furious this time.]
[Let&x2019;s just hope that Director Mong will change the first female lead soon. It would be better that way instead of everyone getting reprimanded because of Jiang Yuning.]
[Jiang Yuning is just a flower vase.]
[I think Jiang Yuning must be in shock after getting yelled at by Director Mong. Hahaha.]
&x201C;These people are really going overboard&x2026;&x201D; the young paparazzo could not stand listening to all those criticisms anymore and he stood up because he wanted to get justice for Jiang Yuning. However, Jiang Yuning stopped him immediately.
&x201C;Book me an air ticket back to Luo City now.&x201D;
&x201C;It is useless for you to say anything to all these people now. The only way that we can shut them up is by showing them my strength and capability,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she calmed herself down. Yes, she was shocked when Director Mong yelled at her but she had already regained her composure.
What is home?
What is a country?
Jiang Yuning needed to figure out the problem. Therefore, she took the young paparazzo back to Luo City with her before she contacted Secretary Ho.
However, the production staff and crew members thought that Jiang Yuning was simply escaping from the situation that she was placed in.
Therefore, some of them approached Director Mong and said, &x201C;Director Mong, why don&x2019;t you start searching for a new actress to take on the role of the first female lead? Jiang Yuning has gone overboard. Her acting skills are already so terrible. How could she just leave the filming set with her assistant just because she is facing a setback?&x201D;
After listening to this fallacy, Xiao Chennan sneered before he took the opportunity to speak up for Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Director Mong, Yuning is not that kind of person. Since you have already given her two days to prepare for her role, then I believe she should have the freedom to do whatever she wants or to go wherever she needs to find her inspiration. I am certain that she will give you an answer in two days&x2019; time.&x201D;
The expression on Director Mong&x2019;s face eased a little and he nodded his head after listening to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s words. &x201C;You are right. I was the one who gave her two days anyway.&x201D;
The person who had tried to sow discord between Jiang Yuning and Director Mong was furious because his plans did not succeed.
Since Director Mong was already dissatisfied with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s performance, some of the people thought that they could add fuel to the flames in order to recommend some actresses to Director Mong, as they would eventually be repaid for the favor.
However, they did not expect Xiao Chennan to speak up for Jiang Yuning.
Later that afternoon, Secretary Ho was surprised when he received a phone call from the young mistress.
&x201C;Secretary Ho, can I ask you for a favor?&x201D;
&x201C;Huh?&x201D; Secretary Ho could feel his heart beating faster all of a sudden. &x201C;Do you want to ask the principal for help instead?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning paused for a moment before she replied, &x201C;Okay then, but only if he is free.&x201D;
When Secretary Ho handed his cell phone over to Lu Jingzhi, he could clearly feel the cold glare in Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s eyes as he glared at him.
&x201C;Principal&x2026;the young mistress called me. This has nothing to do with me.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi took the cell phone from Secretary Ho and he asked in an unhappy voice, &x201C;Why didn&x2019;t you call me directly?&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;I was afraid that you would miss me too much. Second Brother, is there any place that I can go to in order to learn more about patriotism? Can I join the army for a day or two so that I can sleep and train together with them? Will you be able to set this up for me?&x201D;
&x201C;What kind of nonsense are you up to this time?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi questioned her in a deep voice.
&x201C;I am not up to any kind of nonsense. I know what I am doing.&x201D;
&x201C;This is a non-negotiable matter. Do you think that you can just go to the military base whenever you want to? What do you want to do there? Create chaos?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was speechless and she kept quiet at this time.
&x201C;Principal, don&x2019;t you think that your tone is too harsh?&x201D; Secretary Ho quickly reminded Lu Jingzhi.
He was yelling at his wife.
Lu Jingzhi was worried that the little descendant was up to no good and that she would get into trouble again.
The typhoon and flood incident had already scared him to death previously. This was just the first day that she had joined the cast and she was already in trouble?
However, he knew very well that the little descendant would never create trouble intentionally. Therefore, if she was asking for his help, something must have happened to her.
&x201C;Where are you now?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked in a gentler tone.
&x201C;You raised your voice at me&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Why did you yell at me just now? Am I not your precious little descendant anymore?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she felt that she had been seriously wronged.
&x201C;Of course you are. Can you tell me why you want to go to the military base so that I can try to come up with another solution to resolve your problem? Hmm?&x201D;
&x201C;I am at home. We can talk about this when you get home later,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied after she calmed down a little.
In fact, she did not have to go to the military base. However, she only had two days to get her act together and she could not think of a better way.
She was home?
This way, Lu Jingzhi was certain that the little descendant had definitely ran into a big trouble or difficulty this time.
&x201C;Wait for me to come home. I will let you hit my big pork trotters.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but smiled as soon as she heard this sentence, &x201C;You even know about the term big pork trotters?&x201D;
&x201C;I know everything about you&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, big pork trotters. Then you must also know&x2026;what they are calling me on the Internet nowadays&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Short Jiang? Yes, you have already told me about it.&x201D;
