Chapter 49: He Han Saw His Son (3)
Today, a famous Weibo member posted a message.
“Some time ago, Jin Tan from ‘Lurking in the Bund’ gained quite some popularity, and the actress Ye Fan was able to snatch away the heroine, Tang Jin’s limelight.”
“However, have you ever thought about the possibility that this was all just hype that was planned out since a long time ago? And the goal is to crush our famous Miss Tang Jin, and use her as a stepping stone…”
This post was not very long, but the words were all pointing in accusation of Ye Fan, saying that she was trying to get up in the world using trickery.
This Weibo member had actually been cooperating with Tang Jin’s studio the whole time, and it was them who instructed him to post this just to smear Ye Fan’s name.
Ye Fan was getting too popular, and Tang Jin and her team had been wanting to pull her down for some time now. They also hired many paid commenters to post their analysis on the net to steer public opinion.
This Weibo blogger had more than a million followers, and he was able to arouse a heated discussion among the netizens as soon as he posted that.
“I knew long ago that things weren’t right. With just the role of a dancer, Ye Fan was able to get famous so quickly. She must have premeditated a plan that was being operated by a large company in the background.”
“Right? It’s deep waters in the entertainment circle. No matter how pretty Ye Fan is, it’s still going to be hard to get a foot up in the entertainment circle. I seriously suspect that everyone who praised Ye Fan before this were all paid to do so.”
“Some time ago, people were posting all about Ye Fan and she got up to the hot searches list. When did newcomers cause such big waves in our world? Also, my idol Tang Jin was dragged in too. Seriously pisses me off.”
After the TV series aired, Ye Fan gained some fans. However, Tang Jin’s fans were very aggressive, so they immediately began tearing each other up.
“I don’t understand it. Ye Fan is just doing her thing quietly by herself. Who did she provoke? Why does she have to be insulted like this?”
“We’ve seen Ye Fan’s beauty and her acting skills. Whether it’s just hype or reality, just wait and see. Just hope you don’t get your face slapped again.”
Even though some people didn’t believe that that blogger said, Tang Jin’s fanbase was too large, so the people speaking for Ye Fan gradually fell into the weaker position, and the winds favored Tang Jin’s side.
At this moment, while Ye Fan was lying at the teeth of the storm. All of those jealous people were mad over their heads wanting to drag her into the water. Who asked Ye Fan to become so popular recently? Those people were long blinded by anger.
Not long after, some netizens found a small video clip on a video streaming app that was released during the filming period of “Lurking in the Bund”.
The poster was one of the extras on the set. While taking a video of himself, he accidentally caught some people at the side.
The figure right behind him was Ye Fan.
In the video, Ye Fan was dressed in her costume and sliding down a slope. She landed on the ground and pointed her gun at the person in front of her.
Ye Fan went through cut after cut after cut, and she also slid down that slope again and again.
“Lurking in the Bund” had always had a great degree of discussion, so it immediately caused a heated discussion as soon as the video was discovered.
Some sharp-eyed netizens could keenly sense that something was wrong after watching the video.
“Lurking in the Bund” had already finished airing, and they had seen all of Ye Fan’s scenes. But the scenes shown in the video did not appear in the show.
IT was also worth mentioning that Tang Jin’s character as the heroine had played the same scene.
The netizens were all commenting their doubts below.
“I’ve already watched through ‘Lurking in the Bund’ several times. I remember that this scene was never aired on TV.”
“Why is Ye Fan wearing Tang Jin’s costume? Even her hair, clothes, and movements are the same as Tang Jin’s. Isn’t that too strange?”
“Isn’t this Tang Jin’s scene? Where’s Tang Jin? Why isn’t she in the video?”
The number of likes in the video broke through one million in a single day, and it continued to increase at an alarming rate after that. More and more people saw the video and posted their own thoughts below.
It did not make sense for Ye Fan to wear Tang Jin’s costume, wearing the same hairstyle, doing the same movements…Everything was exactly the same as that Tang Jin presented on TV.
Many of these comments pointed at the looming truth.
Could it be…Ye Fan was actually Tang Jin’s stand-in?
Just a few days ago, Tang Jin said she had a rough time doing those scenes. But now, doesn’t it seem like Ye Fan was the one doing those scenes for her?
