Aside from money, the only thing or person that could provide any comfort or solace to Jiang Yuning right not was none other than Lu Jingzhi.
Jiang Yuning felt that her second brother&x2019;s abs could attract anyone who caught a glimpse of it.
&x201C;Second Brother, cover up and hide your abdominal muscles after showing it to me. I don&x2019;t want anyone else to see it. It&x2019;s my precious.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi could only sigh helplessly as soon as he saw the perverted expression on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face through the video call. &x201C;No one else but you would actually dare to look at my abs.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not stop herself from laughing out loud as soon as she heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words and her laughter sounded so sweet to Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;Just wait for me a little longer, Second Brother. I will be able to go back to Luo City during the Spring Lantern Festival.&x201D;
&x201C;My dearest second brother, it&x2019;s time for you to go to bed now. I miss you.&x201D; Jiang Yuning waved reluctantly at Lu Jingzhi before she hung up the video call. However, she started to feel an overwhelming sense of loneliness as soon as she hung up.
Jiang Yuning woke up early the next morning and she got her makeup ready so that she could film her morning scenes alongside Xiao Chennan. As they were both filming their scenes, Xiao Chennan received news that he was once again on the headlines of the entertainment news.
&x201C;Hongxin Entertainment, which was the agency in charge of Xiao Chennan, released an article early in the morning today accusing Xiao Chennan of committing ten major crimes during his contractual period&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning felt really anxious and worried for Xiao Chennan when she saw the title of the article. After all, it was not uncommon for an entertainment agency to release this kind of information to keep their artistes under control, in order to ensure their obedience and loyalty to the agency. However, if the information released by the agency proved to be true, it could bring about plenty of damage to the artiste&x2019;s reputation and career. Jiang Yuning had never expected Xiao Chennan&x2019;s agency to take things this far.
However, she could not stop herself from laughing as soon as she saw the contents in the article.
Arriving late, leaving early, being out of control, not abiding by all the arrangements made by the company and the biggest &x2018;crime&x2019; listed in the article was Xiao Chennan&x2019;s decision to be in a relationship, which was against the company&x2019;s will.
&x201C;Does Hongxin Entertainment really take you as an elementary student? Why are they even trying to control your love life?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, don&x2019;t you know that Brother Nan had always been very disciplined and that he has always maintained a good and clean reputation for the past few years that he has been with the agency? He rarely attends any parties or any events and therefore, it must have been very difficult for the company to find fault with Brother Nan&x2019;s attitude and character,&x201D; Qing Yan quickly explained. &x201C;When the agency realized that they had nothing on Brother Nan, they had to resort to this kind of childish accusations just to get their point across.&x201D;
&x201C;I believe that all the netizens know about Brother Nan&x2019;s entire family history now. He must be the most non-secretive and open celebrity in the entire history of the entertainment industry. It would not be easy for the agency to find anything that they could use against Brother Nan,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied cheerfully. &x201C;Hongxin Entertainment is really stupid. Brother Nan already has the support and the sympathy of the netizens at this time and they are still trying so hard to turn the tides against him. To be honest, Brother Nan does not even need to respond to those accusations at all. He could just wait it out.&x201D;
&x201C;Hongxin Entertainment is not the stupid one. There is only one person who is particularly stupid in the agency.&x201D;
Qing Yan naturally knew who Xiao Chennan was referring to.
Xiao Chennan had originally intended to keep the dirty recording that he had of his conversation with the vice chairman of Hongxin Entertainment to prevent something like this from occurring today. It seemed as though the public relations department had really worked hard to pick out any mistakes that they could find so that they could release that article to condemn him. Wasn&x2019;t it clear that the vice chairman was trying to vent his anger and pick on him?
Since this was the case, then there was no need for Xiao Chennan to be polite or gracious anymore. He could just send a copy of the recording to the chairman of Hongxin Entertainment.
Xiao Chennan had also attached his own terms and conditions alongside the recording of the conversation. &x201C;Firstly, I will not pursue this matter if you dismiss the vice chairman from his position with immediate effect. Secondly, the agency will let me go as long as I pay double the penalty for breaking the employment contract.&x201D;
When the chairman of Hongxin Entertainment heard the voice recording later that morning, his face was flushed red with anger and he rushed into the vice chairman&x2019;s office immediately. The chairman gave the vice chairman a tight slap across his face in front of the vice chairman&x2019;s secretary before he yelled at him to get lost three times!
After all, what was more important? Xiao Chennan or the company&x2019;s reputation?
The chairman of Hongxin Entertainment subsequently withdrew the article that had been released by the public relations department and he agreed to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s terms for the immediate termination of his employment contract.
However, the chairman could not stop Hongxin Entertainment from becoming a laughing stock because of its actions against Xiao Chennan.
Xiao Chennan also expressed his idea and dream of establishing his own agency but he did not have a reliable team to rely on after leaving Hongxin Entertainment.
At this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly thought of an amazing idea. &x201C;Brother Nan, you can ask Vera to approach Guangying Media to request for a collaboration on your behalf. This way, you can create your agency under Guangying Media.&x201D;
Xiao Chennan turned around to look at Vera, who was sitting not too far away. His eyes lit up as soon as he saw her.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, what is Sister Vera doing? She looks so busy,&x201D; Qing Yan, who was standing beside both of them, could not help but ask Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;She is helping someone manage his reputation and his fan base,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she rolled her eyes. &x201C;Brother Nan, do you know that someone has seriously neglected her own duties and responsibilities recently just because she is busy dealing with your issues? I had to come out and negotiate my own contract. If you successfully create your agency under Guangying Media, I believe that I will definitely lose my exclusive agent for good.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, I heard that you signed an endorsement contract to become the ambassador for a hemorrhoid cream?&x201D; Qing Yan asked as she tried to hold back his laughter.
&x201C;Take that back! I am endorsing an eye cream! Eye cream! I am not endorsing any hemorrhoid creams!&x201D;
&x201C;But that brand specializes in&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Are you still saying it?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she glared at Qing Yan.
&x201C;What I wanted to say is&x2026;no matter what you are endorsing, I will definitely make sure that I get my entire family to support you. Moreover, that would be good for travels, right?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was speechless.
Get lost already.
Jiang Yuning suddenly regretted taking on the endorsement contract. If Qing Yan was already laughing and making fun of her because of the contract, then how would the Ginger Candies react when they found out about it? They would never let her off so easily. Gosh. Why did it have to pay so well?
In a few days&x2019; time, it would already be the fifteenth of the month, which was when the Spring Lantern Festival was. Jiang Yuning was very focused on filming her scenes and ensuring she got it right because she had to make it back to Luo City for a recording with the television station.
The news that she was going to be the ambassador for a certain brand also started spreading quickly.
The Ginger Candies were all surprised and in disbelief when they heard the news.
[Empress Jiang is really very special. She does not take any of the usual paths that all the other celebrities have. She is really a very unique person.]
[Is Empress Jiang really that short of resources? I thought that she would definitely be signing contracts with plenty of high-end and first-line brands. In the end, she became the ambassador of a hemorrhoid cream&x2026;]
[Correction! Correction! Empress Jiang is the ambassador for a truly gentle anti-wrinkle eye cream that is developed specially for Asian skin!]
[Stop trying to make it sound nice. She is still the ambassador for an eye cream that is developed by a brand specializing in a hemorrhoid cream!]
[Hurry up and wake me up! Tell me that this is not true and that this is all just a dream. I really do not know how to reply if Empress Jiang is really the ambassador of a hemorrhoid cream.]
[I don&x2019;t know why but I just feel like laughing when I think about this.]
[Hahaha! Me too. I am laughing so much that I feel that my stomach is already hurting. Why is Empress Jiang endorsing a brand like this?]
[A brand like this? Do you know that this brand is used by so many people from all around the world? It is actually a household brand!]
After that, the Ginger Candies finally accepted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s new endorsement contract with an open mind. Besides that, one of the more creative fans had also created an ancient style comic figure of Jiang Yuning, which featured the particular brand that she was endorsing.
This drawing was eventually liked and featured on the official webpage of the brand. They thanked the party involved: &x201C;Congratulations to this fan for the beautiful artwork that you have created for our new ambassador. As a way to thank you, we would like to gift you one full set of all of our available products.&x201D;
Wow! This fan would definitely be receiving hemorrhoid cream!
