How To Say I Love You - 60.1
Lin Le Yang became anxious again and was afraid that Fang Kun would inform Ji Ge about the incident.
Chen Peng Xin threw a pillow and joked, “Look at you being so scared and your pale face! Don’t worry, it’ll be okay. I think your ability to withstand mental pressure is lacking! Look at Miao Mu Qing, so many times that she has been slandered, but she still has a successful career, doesn’t she? It’s something you have to get used to and part of being a celebrity.”
Lin Le Yang covered his face and sighed, “This is the first time that I have been attacked. Maybe I will get used to it as time goes by.” But he knew that he would never be as he cared too much about what others thought of him. Broken and even unwilling to work. Perhaps, if one day he no longer cared about what others thoughts, it might be when he would be able to climb to the heights of those like Ji Ge.
“yes, this kind of thing will definitely happen in the future. Let’s take it lightly and just do our thing…” As Chen Peng Xin was talking, Chen Peng Yu came inside with two bags of food and shouted, “Gege, did you see the online news today? My God, that Xiao Jia Shu turned out to be the second son of the Xiao Pharmaceutics family. No wonder he is so arrogant! Look at his Weibo, it’s really amazing. The people following him? There is the president of Guanshi, Ruishui and Xiao’s Pharmaceutics…with this kind of support, it’s enough for one to ascend to the heavens!”
“It’s okay, it’s just a matter of people’s origin. Even if you envy it, what the use? Go and change your slippers for dinner.” Chen Peng Xin put down the lunch boxes on the table one by one, checking up on his sister through the corner of his eyes. “Why did you change to another bag? Isn’t that the eighth bag you’ve bought this month, where did you get the money?”
Chen Peng Yu said nervously, “I bought this through a black market. It costs fifty to sixty yuan each and is very cheap.”
“Fifty or sixty yuan each still adds up to a lot, you should learn to save a little bit.” Chen Peng Xin promised, “When your Le Yang Ge becomes popular, and your salary is higher, you will definitely buy the original version of those bags instead.”
“When will Le Yang Ge become popular?”, Cheng Peng Yu and excited and squeezed over to Lin Le Yang’s side and asked, “Le Yang Ge, how much can you get for making a movie? How much can you get from filming an advertisement?”
“What are you asking? When ‘The Apostle’ is out in cinemas, your Le Yang Ge will be popular. You don’t know how good he is in it.” Chen Peng Xin waved his hand impatiently. However, Lin Le Yang replied truthfully, “I am currently not a high-ranked actor right now, and so the rewards I get are limited. A movie should be some 100,000 yuan and as for advertisements, this depends on the type. High-end products give more money and low-end product gives less money. Of course, once you are big, you’ll naturally receive endorsement for high-end products and those should be in the millions.”
“It’s only a few hundred thousand? Are you sure?” Chen Peng Yu seemed disappointed. She pointed at a Weibo account, “Le Yang Ge, look this person sold Xiao Jia Shu’s black material to Ji Guang Entertainment and got two million from them, how come the celebrity’s black material is higher than your salary for making movies?”
“Xiao Jia Shu has tens of millions of endorsements in his hand. If he has black material against him, it’s obviously more valuable and so Ji Guang Entertainment is willing to pay two million. Celebrity’s black material has always been valuable, but it depends on your ability. If you are able to do so, those seasoned paparazzi live by collecting black materials on celebrities. Whether they are sold to the media or to the celebrities, they can easily earn tens of thousands each month.” Chen Peng Xin emoted, “If it weren’t for your Le Yang Ge, I would have gone on to be a paparazzi.”
Chen Peng Yu’s eyes brightened and immediately begged, “Gege, it’s boring staying indoors all day, can you please let me accompany you to work? I can help Le Yang Ge without getting paid.”
“Don’t make trouble, you still have to repeat still have the second half of the school year to retake.” Chen Peng Xin vetoed her suggestion.
Chen Peng Yu switched to pestering Lin Le Yang instead. Lin Le Yang had a very soft heart to those close to him and quickly agreed.
[TN: he’s so stupid]
About seven to eight days later, both Xiao Jia Shu and Miao Mu Qing’s scandal gradually subsided. Xiao Jia Shu, who became quite popular in one fell swoop was fortunate enough to be invited to audition for ‘The Chaser for Love’, with the role of the first male lead.
The artists of the same company quickly received the news, some were envious, some were jealous, and some were full of disapproval. Everyone in the entertainment circle knew how harsh Director Hu Ming was. Getting his audition invitation doesn’t mean anything. If your acting skill did not meet his standards, then you will be turned down.
Chen Peng Xin was busy moving about all day in an effort to build relationships and naturally learned about it. He dragged Lin le Yang to a secluded corner and said, “The Chaser for Love’ is hailed as the most anticipated movie of the year. There are a lot of people paying attention to it and it’s already popular. If you can get the role of the first male lead, then you’ll be able to surpass Xiao Jia Shu right away. You can ask from Ji Ge as he has a very good personal relationship with Director Hu Ming and should be able to help you get this role.”
Lin Le Yang was also a loyal fan of ‘Chaser for Love’. He had once read it all night and became intoxicated with the show. He knew how fascinating the plot and setting of the book was and the many fans it had been able to attract worldwide. As Chen Peng Xin said, no matter who became the first male lead, they would surely be popular with this movie.
