Chapter 23: Just Because of Those Eyes, She Blushed (4)
Though she was no match for He Han’s superb acting skills, she didn’t take away from the viewing experience at all. Earlier when the two were acting, he felt like he really was indulging himself in the Shanghai Bund.
Sure enough, his decision to cast Ye Fan as Jin Tan was not a mistake.
After the end of the scene, Ye Fan returned to her usual cool expression. She was no longer the charming and sensual dancer Jin Tan.
The iciness in He Han’s eyes had also dispersed and his face was calm.
Both of them were quick to get into character, but they were also firm in coming out of it. Whatever they did during the act was nothing more than just that.
After some time, the crew announced the first preview of “Lurking in the Bund”.
Both the director and the screenwriter of this series were the top in the industry, and the series even starred award-winning film actor He Han and the darling actress Tang Jin. Even from the start of filming, the series had been receiving a high degree of attention because of that.
As soon as the video was published, a heated discussion began.
Fans of He Han and Tang Jin were all commenting wildly on their Weibo pages.
“He Han looks so handsome in a military uniform. Begging the crew to please post more photos!”
“My male god looks good no matter what role he’s in. I’ll definitely follow this drama.”
“Xiao Jin and He Han are such a good match. They look pretty good standing next to each other.”
While everyone was discussing the leading characters of the drama, a small voice appeared.
“Am I the only one curious about the veiled woman? Her eyes are really pretty.”
“She’s so pretty even with only her eyes revealed. How pretty do you think she would be if her whole face was revealed?”
“Was there someone like this in the entertainment circle? When did such a big beauty appear?”
The dancer Jin Tan did not have many parts in the series, so Ye Fan was rarely shown in the previews. But just a few seconds of screentime was enough to catch people’s attention.
The only things needed to achieve that were her beautiful eyes and graceful body.
However, there were also some discordant noises.
“Don’t any of you know what butterface means? Who knows, maybe the rest of her face is ugly.”
“I bet it’s a gimmick the crew made. She definitely looks terrible underneath the veil.”
“Even if she’s pretty, could she be prettier than Tang Jin?”
More and more comments were piling up on the net, and they were all saying different things. But if there’s one thing that’s for sure, that would be that the actress for that dancer isn’t someone with any background. Otherwise, why would they not announce her name?
The online comments were all split into two directions. Some people thought that the veiled dancer is definitely a beautiful woman. They even compared the dancer to Tang Jin and tried to guess which one of them would be prettier.
But most of the comments were siding with Tang Jin. She had a lot of fans, and they all said that everyone would find out once the series was out that the person’s face could not be comparable to Tang Jin at all.
Everyone was trying to guess who the mysterious actress was.
In just a short while, rumors began to spread.
The crew had no idea that a small character whose was was not even fully revealed out stir up so much heat on the internet. And the person in question was even Ye Fan who was Tang Jin’s stand-in.
Since the crew did not disclose Ye Fan’s identity even after so long, the discussions on the net became even more intense and the topics continued to ferment.
Everyone thought that the focus of the drama would be He Han and Tang Jin, but they never thought that the dancer would be mentioned so frequently.
What’s more, her scene in the preview lasted only a short few seconds.
