How To Say I Love You - 43.1
Ding Zhen was the CEO of Skyworth Entertainment. It can be said that his decisions could make the entertainment circle shake. He was quite bold and generous, and he organizes a cocktail party from time to time, inviting many big directors or popular idols to attend purely for the aesthetic.
Being invited to attend his reception was something for Lin Le Yang, who was currently unpopular. He hesitated, but soon remembered Ji Ge’s instructions and refused again. “I will not go.”
“Why? Give me a legitimate reason!” Chen Pengxin was getting frustrated.
“Jie Ge won’t allow it.”
“When Ji Mian knows that we were able to get Ding Zhen’s invitation maybe he’ll praise our ability! Ji Mian is the boss and there are many employees and artists, he can’t always devote all his energy to cultivate you. So you also need to find your own way and be self-sufficient. Will so many good resources fall from the sky? No! It is by efforts; one needs to fight and grab it yourself! You are not yet popular now, Ji Mian will not take care of you, it’s until you are popular that he will start to give you good resources. You have to work hard on your own first!”
Chen Pengxin’s words tugged Lin Le Yang’s heartstrings. Yes, he took this path, wasn’t he trying to catch up with Ji Mian using his own efforts? Why was he becoming more and more dependent on him now?
Maybe he would lose himself if he continued on like this?
“Alright, I am going. What time does the reception begin?” Lin Le Yang gritted his teeth and agreed.
“At 7:00 in the evening, I will come to your house and pick you up at half-past six.” Chen Pengxin said quickly. “Did you know that Tang Ge met Director Zhang at the reception of Ding Zhen and then starred in his “Pear Blossoms” and “Rain”, last year, there he still had no reputation. This year, he became a first-rate star. You think about it, from the 18th-rate to the first-rate, that distance form just a cocktail party. How can you not seize the opportunity? What is in the entertainment circle? The most important thing is that the network!”
“I know, I will take advantage of the opportunity.” Lin Le Yang’s heart was hot, and he soon forgot Ji Mian’s orders.
At the same time, Xiao Jiashu also got an invitation from Huang Meixuan, “Ding Zhen? I don’t know him.”
“There is no need to know him, Just go have a meal, director Hu Ming will also be there. He recently filmed a suspense horror film and purchased a film and television copyright of a famous foreign horror novel. Millions of the book’s fans are paying attention to this. You need to be familiar with Director Hu because I am going to let you audition as his male lead number one.”
“Is it “The Lovers”?” Xiao Jiashu instantly became interested. “The Lovers” was one of the representative works of the famous foreign horror novelist Steven Abel. It had been reprinted only once after the original publication. The circulation has reached nearly 80 million copies. It has hundreds of millions of fans around the world and a huge influence. Being able to win its film and television rights was enough to demonstrate the strength of Director Hu Ming.
“Yes, its “The Lovers. “Do you want to go? ” Huang Meixuan did not really value this opportunity. While it was good to get male lead number one. It was not a pity. Anyway, as Xue Jie said not long ago, let Xiao Shu go to develop himself. He should take and shoot whatever film he likes without any interference. Of course, if he wants to shoot adult film or something, even without Huang Meixuan input, Xue Jie would break his leg.
“Yes I would like to go, I do like “The Lovers”, Xiao Jiashu quickly agreed.
“After going to talk with Director Hu, let’s just leave the place. Ding Zhen is a famous hungry ghost. He likes to play with the actors. While he helps them and provides them with work, many say that their next half of there lives were ruined.”
Xiao Jiashu touched his handsome face and said worriedly, “Mexiuan Jie, will I be in any danger?”
“He dares not. Not to mention your parents and elder brother, even Xiu Zong would be enough to peel off two layers of his skin!”
Xiao Jiashu shook his head, his expression complicated, “Meixuan Jie, the entertainment industry is really chaotic. I don’t want to step into this circle too deeply. Let’s make a good movie, nothing else.”
“Okay, you just take a good film and leave all the other things to me. Let’s go, I will take you to buy some suits.” Huang Meixuan started the car and drove away. At half-past 6 they left the shops.
Xiao Jiashu held five to six bags in each of his hands, while Huang Meixuan was refreshed and happy. Her face was full of joy, where to find such a good child? Not only take the initiative to pick up things, swipe cards but also give constructive opinions, the aesthetics is not that of a straight male at all, it’s simply that of a woman’s best friend!
“Let’s go to the dinner party.” Huang Meixuan smoothed down the new skirt and walked towards the parking lot.
Xiao Jiashu struggled to follow behind as if was like a mobile clothing rack. It was also hard to put a lot of bags into the trunk. Soon, the two arrived at the reception on time and strolled into the banquet room under the guidance of the waiter.
Seeing the beautiful and innocent Xiao Jiashu, Ding Zhen’s eyes lit up, however, he did not immediately go to them, instead, he quietly asked the assistant, “Who is the person brought by Huang Meixuan? What’s his background?”
“Ding Zong, that is Xiao Dingbang’s younger brother, he can’t be touched.” The assistant said in low volume.
Ding Zhen’s fingers went numb as if he could imagine a scene where Xiao Dingbang chopped off his hands. That person was a simply a ruthless character, he was even more connected, basically, they were not on the same level at all. But how come his brother entered the entertainment circle? Was it an illegitimate child? He had never heard of the Xiao’s family having two young masters before!
