&x201C;Oh.&x201D; Jin Mingchen quickly stepped aside at this time.
After that, Jiang Yuning knocked on the door before she said, &x201C;Jingqi, it&x2019;s me.&x201D;
After a short while, the door was opened.
Jin Mingchen immediately felt very unhappy. He has already called and yelled for Lu Jingqi to open the door until his voice was already breaking but the kid ignored him completely. Now, as soon as Sister Yuning knocked on the door, he opened the door immediately. This was really double standard!
In fact, the person who opened the door was Lu Jingqi&x2019;s assistant because he trusted Jiang Yuning.
Lu Jingqi was sitting on his bed at the moment, and the curtains were closed and he did not turn on any lights at all. Therefore, the entire room was very dark. Even after entering the bedroom, Jiang Yuning could not see the other person&x2019;s face clearly.
All that she could see was that he was scrolling some social media account as he looked at the malicious rumors and criticisms about him.
&x201C;Why don&x2019;t you turn on the light?&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t know how to face myself,&x201D; Lu Jingqi lowered his head as he replied in a hoarse voice. &x201C;Sister Yuning, the world has seen pictures of me at my ugliest.&x201D;
After listening to Lu Jingqi&x2019;s words, Jiang Yuning squatted down in front of him. After that, she took out her cell phone, before she turned on the camera and switched to the selfie mode.
&x201C;So, let them see how handsome you really are then.&x201D;
&x201C;These days, I have been holding back and I refused to watch any online videos and comments about me. However, this does not mean that I don&x2019;t care. I don&x2019;t know them at all so I don&x2019;t know why so many people are releasing all this malicious information about me.&x201D;
&x201C;Jingqi, do you know that Sister Yuning has also been insulted and criticized in the past? There were also people who threw rotten eggs at me because they hated me! From time to time, several dead mice would pop up at my apartment, some of my co-artistes would throw cat corpses in my bathtub, and some people even cut and destroyed the costumes that I would have to wear for my performance. There was also one time where someone put glue in my shoes and sent a wreath to me at the crew. But, so what?&x201D;
&x201C;Even though these people are criticizing you, most of the time, they are just doing it for fun. They have no grievances with you. They are just being annoying because they have nothing better to do.&x201D;
&x201C;As an artiste, we are always the victim of public humiliation, especially in this internet age. Therefore, we should prove them wrong and show them that we are not stupid. Jingqi, you are very talented and you dance very well, so there will definitely be endless possibilities for you in the future. However, what future awaits those keyboard warriors who are hiding behind their computer screen to criticize and insult you? What else can they do with their lives besides venting online?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning comforted Lu Jingqi with a soft and gentle voice.
&x201C;As for what has already happened, you should not allow yourself to be so affected by it. It is not your fault, and it should not be a weakness that others should use to attack you. Isn&x2019;t it just a few ugly photos? Let&x2019;s be generous and forget about it. Even someone who made an appearance on a silly variety show would still be fine as time passed by. No matter how bad it was for me in the past, I continued acting in a TV series even though I had a very and reputation and many haters at that time. So, you have to be strong. Okay?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, yes, yes&x2026;&x201D; Jin Mingchen interrupted Jiang Yuning at this moment. &x201C;There is also a bunch of ugly photos of me online too. I even uploaded some ugly pictures of myself online! There is nothing to be sad or afraid of, Jingqi. Come, let me show you some of my ugly pictures.&x201D;
After listening to Jin Mingchen&x2019;s words, Lu Jingqi tilted his head to look at his cell phone.
After that, he thought of the night that Jin Mingchen had pushed him away so desperately.
He suddenly felt very guilty.
After the both of them were done speaking, Jiang Yuning stood up before she reached out her hand to Lu Jingqi and asked, &x201C;It&x2019;s almost time for us to go for the second round of rehearsal at the event site. You will not let us down, right? Jingqi, you know that there are many big stars and celebrities waiting for you, right?&x201D;
Lu Jingqi stared at Jiang Yuning and it seemed as though she had finally gotten through to him.
Therefore, he stretched out his hand and grabbed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand before getting out of his bed.
&x201C;Silly kid, don&x2019;t be so emotional in future. What is the big deal about a few ugly pictures anyway? I will ask my fans to change your emoji to make it look good, okay?&x201D;
Jin Mingchen took advantage of this opportunity to joke around.
When Lu Jingqi did not reply, he added another sentence, &x201C;Or should I ask them to make mine uglier, much uglier than yours? What do you think? Otherwise, should I do a live broadcast instead?&x201D;
At this time, Lu Jingqi could not help but smiled at Jin Mingchen.
He suddenly realized that it was only natural for people to have some haters. It was nothing uncommon at all.
Furthermore, he knew that Jiang Yuning had also experienced a similar situation in the past. Therefore, she understood what he was going through.
Moreover, the main reason why Jiang Yuning could successfully persuade Lu Jingqi was because he felt that he was way luckier than her because he had never been subjected to any physical abuse.
At this time, the trio walked out of the apartment and returned to the dance studio.
Wang Jing was already waiting for them.
&x201C;I have already instructed all the dancers to wear masks during the full dress rehearsal to confuse the media,&x201D; Wang Jing said to Jiang Yuning as soon as she saw her. &x201C;The main issue now is to think of the best way to leave the agency without getting seen. There are a lot of media waiting outside the agency.&x201D;
&x201C;I will exit from the main entrance with a few of the boys from the boy group. When the reporters and paparazzi rush toward us, then Jingqi should leave from the other exit with the other backup dancers. I think that this should be the most low-key plan,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied.
&x201C;Your arrangement is the best.&x201D;
Wang Jing agreed with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s proposal. Therefore, she quickly asked someone to look around for a few pieces of clothing that had been used in previous TV shows at the agency. After that, she asked several of the backup dancers to put on those clothes, including Lu Jingqi.
The height difference between several people was not very big. Therefore, as soon as they put on a cap and a mask, it was not easy to distinguish Lu Jingqi from the rest of the boys.
&x201C;Then&x2026;I will leave the media and paparazzi to you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning instantly made an okay gesture at Wang Jing.
At ten o&x2019;clock in the morning, Jiang Yuning and the boys from the boy group walked out of the main entrance of K Agency.
Even though Jiang Yuning was an artiste that was under a contract with another agency, it seemed as though she was an artiste working under K Agency. No one felt that there was anything amiss at all. In fact, the main reason why everyone felt this way was because Jiang Yuning and Jin Mingchen had a very good relationship. Moreover, wasn&x2019;t Lu Jingqi also training here at this agency?
When the reporters and paparazzi saw them coming out of the main entrance, they swarmed up and surrounded Jiang Yuning and Jin Mingchen and the rest of the boy group immediately.
In fact, the reporters were trying to look for Lu Jingqi.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning&x2026;please say a few words. Did you arrange for the young master of the Lu family to attend training at K Agency?&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning&x2026;will the young master Lu really be performing on stage tonight?&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, did the Lu family put any pressure on K Agency at all?&x201D;
From another perspective&x2026;
&x201C;Jin Mingchen, have you met the young master of the Lu family before?&x201D;
&x201C;Jin Mingchen, are you worried that something will go wrong with tonight&x2019;s performance?&x201D;
&x201C;Mingchen, do you feel any dissatisfaction toward your agency?&x201D;
Jin Mingchen could not help but rolled his eyes after listening to their questions.
Wasn&x2019;t he living the time of his life now?
Why would he have the courage to express any dissatisfaction with his agency?
They were his boss.
At this moment, countless microphones were placed in front of Jiang Yuning and the other boys.
The reporters and paparazzi continued questioning them as they tried to stop them from leaving.
Jiang Yuning and the rest of the boys could hardly move at all.
As Jiang Yuning was caught in this scene, she continued smiling but she really felt like lashing out at them.
&x201C;Please let us pass. We are in a hurry,&x201D; the personal assistants of Fixed Star was already starting to get annoyed at this time.
Why did they have to ask so many questions about Lu Jingqi?
&x201C;Why don&x2019;t you just say a few words to us? Jiang Yuning, please say a few words to us. Just let everyone know whether you had any information or inside news on the video that was leaked about Lu Jingqi since you are such close friends with the Lu family?&x201D;
&x201C;Moreover, can you explain why you would want to put someone with mental retardation on stage?&x201D;
