Chapter 404: Have You Forgotten How to Walk?
[I have a friend who is currently studying at NTU. Should I ask him to check it out for us?]
[Your idea is very dangerous and risky!]
[I feel that we should just support whatever our Empress Jiang decides to do. We should show our support if she wants to make her relationship known to the public and likewise if she chooses to keep it a secret. It has been so difficult for Empress Jiang to finally get this far in her career. I really do not want to get her into trouble just because we are curious and start investigating the Lu family.]
[Although I am really curious, I will wait patiently for Empress Jiang to make her own official announcements in future.]
[I just want to watch Empress Jiang in her new variety program right now! I really want to see how she is going to deal with her rival, the owner of the one hundred million yuan mansion!]
Since the Ginger Candies had already gone through so many obstacles and ordeals together with Jiang Yuning, it was not too difficult for them to keep themselves restrained and under control.
Moreover, what the Ginger Candies loved about Jiang Yuning was the fact that she was an authentic person. They loved her personality and her character and they would still love and support her even if she was in love or in a relationship with anyone. They would not change their perception of her or lose their support for her just because of her relationship. The Ginger Candies had already accepted the fact that their idol would fall in love one day.
Their little fairy would definitely get married and have many children. However, judging from Empress Jiang&x2019;s current behaviour, it seemed as though she did not have plans to do so at the moment.
After entering the villa after she was done with her magazine shoot, Jiang Yuning felt a little lost and helpless when she saw Lu Jingzhi sitting on the sofa in the living room. She felt very complicated and her mind was a mess.
&x201C;Why? Have you forgotten how to walk?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi asked as he looked up at Jiang Yuning who was dragging her feet. Lu Jingzhi sighed as he continued, &x201C;I know what you are about to say but I can assure you that I am not angry at all.&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning walked up to Lu Jingzhi before she crouched and rested her head on his lap. Then, she replied, &x201C;Okay.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi reached out his hand and patted her head gently as he said, &x201C;Do you know that Vera really cares about you?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning gave him a puzzled look.
How was this related to Vera? However, when Jiang Yuning thought about Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s series of operations on the Internet earlier, she suddenly seemed to understand something. Vera must have said something to Lu Jingzhi and that was the reason why he acted in that manner.
&x201C;I promise that I will work hard to be a better person. I promise that I will study hard and also learn how to take care of my family and succeed in my career by next year.&x201D;
This time, Lu Jingzhi did not say anything as he continued patting her head gently, as though he was giving her his assurance and support without saying a word at all.
A few days later, it was time to record
Aside from Jiang Yuning and Lin Kaiyan, the production team had also invited an old predecessor in the music industry and a famous host to participate in the variety program. As the both of them were seniors who had been in the industry for a long time, they were very patient and took good care of their juniors as they greeted everyone with a smile on their faces. It seemed as though they were very nice people.
Of course, in addition to the celebrity team, the production team had also invited an expert group and a support group to participate in the variety program.
Although this was a historical and cultural program, the production team was very thoughtful and creative. They wanted to try and add certain interesting links and elements to the program in order to better engage with the audience.
The arrangement and flow of the entire program seemed to be relatively simple and lively, but it was also obvious that the production team had also put in a lot of effort to make the studio look like the dynasty that the episode was focusing on that week.
In an effort to ensure that the program would not be boring, the production team had also added certain activities and game to lighten up the mood and make the program even more entertaining for the audience.
The host of the variety program was one of the top hosts in the whole of Luo City. It seemed as though Vera had really done her research before she decided on which variety program she wanted Jiang Yuning to participate in.
At seven o&x2019;clock that night, Jiang Yuning was applying her makeup as she greeted the other two guests participants behind the scenes. The production team knew that Jiang Yuning would definitely be able to get along with the other guests, considering the fact that these two guests were actually veterans and seniors in the entertainment industry.
On the other hand, Lin Kaiyan was placed in another dressing room. Since the production team was also aware of his arrogance, they did not want him to share the dressing room with anyone else just so that they could avoid any possible confrontations or disagreements.
&x201C;Teacher Jiang, you can sit here. The ten seats behind you will be taken by ten students who will act as your support team for the night,&x201D; the production crew member told Jiang Yuning as he led her into the studio. After taking her seat, Jiang Yuning looked behind her and saw ten young and adorable students seated right behind her.
The audience started cheering as soon as Jiang Yuning took her seat.
Since the entire production team were well aware that Jiang Yuning and Lin Kaiyan did not get along with one another, they did not arrange for both of them to be seated together. Instead, the production team arranged for the singer Li Meng to sit in between both of them. Moreover, Lin Kaiyan did not even glance once in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s direction since the start of the program.
Jiang Yuning could not even be bothered.
However, Jiang Yuning felt that if Lin Kaiyan continued acting in this manner, the public and the audience might actually think that he was interested in her and that was the reason why he was trying so hard to avoid her.
At half past seven that night, the production team officially started the recording of the program.
The host, Lin Cangxiao, entered the studio and started introducing the theme for the episode tonight. After that, he also gave the cue for each and every one of the guests to start introducing themselves.
The theme for this issue of
&x201C;We want to explain that the time limit for the variety program is limited and therefore, we can only choose and select certain dynasties for the recording of this program. Moreover, I also want to inform the audience that the dynasties are not recorded based on historical order, but in a random order according to the theme of the day. Therefore, I hope that everyone will understand.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, if everyone is ready then let&x2019;s start on our theme for today,
As Teacher Xiaoxiao spoke, the big screen in the studio also displayed a promotional video of the Shang Dynasty.
&x201C;Since we do not have much time on hand, we will begin by talking about the origins of the Shang Dynasty. After that, we will focus our attention on the celebrity guests to get a better understanding of the culture and charms of the Shang Dynasty. Alright then, let&x2019;s get into the first part of our program and see if anyone have any memories of this particular period in history.&x201D;
&x201C;We will come up with four sets of different questions and each question will have five answer options for you to choose from. However, it is important for you to note that there is only one correct answer for each of the questions. For the four guest participants, you can choose to answer the questions after consulting and seeking the help of the support team seated behind you. After selecting an answer, you will also be required to give an explanation for the choice you have made. I would like to invite the props team to bring up our first set of props on stage now.&x201D;
The guest participants understood all fo the rules immediately because they had already been briefed by the production team in advance prior to the recording.
Very soon, the props team started to push a glass cabinet to the center of the stage. There were five beautiful and old antiques displayed within the glass cabinets.
Everyone present in the studio could only gasp as they looked at the valuable artefacts in front of them.
This was because everyone of them knew that these artefacts existed since thousands of years ago. Among them were bronzes, jade, white pottery, and glassware and all the items were exquisite in their own way.
&x201C;The first question that I would like to ask you is, which one of these five artefacts do not belong to the Shang Dynasty? Of course, you do not have to worry so much because these items&x2026;are all replicas that the production team borrowed from the museum for the purpose of recording this program,&x201D; Teacher Xiaoxiao explained as he looked at the confused expression on the face of the audience.
No one would dare to touch the genuine items anyway. They were priceless!
&x201C;Alright then, each and every one of you have one minute to discuss this question with your support team. There will be a sixty second countdown displayed on the screen behind me. After that, you will have to give me your answer.&x201D;
