Chapter 64: Before the War (1)
Agent Li came to Tang Jin’s home today. He needed to tell her something.
When the fact that she used a stand-in was exposed, it had been a long time since Tang Jin had participated in any activities outside to stay away from the limelight.
Tang Jin had always had a smooth career since she debuted, and she had never been troubled all her life.
Agent Li looked at Tang Jin and said, “A reality show contacted us and said they’d like you to participate in it.”
Without even thinking about it, Tang Jin refused. “Not going.”
She sneered. “You want me to do a reality show just after this happened? Are you trying to make a joke of of me?”
She hadn’t even dared to read the comments on the net these days. She was worried that she would die of anger if she did.
Agent Li observed her expression before saying, “I heard Ye Fan is going as well.”
Tang Jin suddenly raised her head. “She’s going?”
Tang Jin clenched her hands. Her eyes cooled instantly.
Agent Li went on, “I know the director for the program very well. I’ve already discussed with him. If you participate in it, then we can step over Ye Fan on the show to clean your reputation.”
“Not only can we destroy Ye Fan’s impression to everyone, we can even get your original reputation with your fans back.”
They had to be filmed all throughout the reality show, but the released program would be edited. Whether a person appears good or bad in the show relied completely on the team in charge.
When she heard this, Tang Jin laughed. The stuffiness she felt pent up in her all these days finally eased up a little.
Tang Jin looked pleased. “So to say, as long as Ye Fan participates in the reality show, she’ll become a stepping stone for me?”
Agent Li nodded. But he wasn’t too assured about it, so he still warned her, “You should still watch your temper when you’re on the show.”
Since the cameras were always on, it was easy for a person’s good points to show, but it was also easy to expose their shortcomings.
This time, Tang Jin didn’t say anything.
She knew very well that if anything leaks out again, her image would receive a great hit.
Tang Jin agreed to join the reality show. So, Agent Li passed on the word to the director.
On the other end, Dai Jinshan gave Ye Fan a call.
Ye Fan picked up the call and heard Dai Jinshan say, “Ye Fan, I’ve got a gig for you. But whether you join it or not is all up to your own decision.”
Ye Fan said, “Sure, tell me.”
Dai Jinshan went on, “This is a program called “Let’s Holiday”, Several people will go on a trip together. All female, and they’ll film their daily lives throughout the trip.
“Tang Jin will also be participating.”
Ye Fan thought about it for a moment.
Clearly, if the show invited both her and Tang Jin at the same time, it was because of the recent scandal. The team was definitely trying to build up some heat through that.
But at the same time, Ye Fan quickly thought of another possibility.
Could this be a trap set by Tang Jin’s team so they could clean Tang Jin’s reputation?
Instead of answering, Ye Fan shot him a question instead, “I’m not too well-versed about things going on in the entertainment circle, but do you think I should participate in it?”
Huarui will become a first-class entertainment company in the future, and as one of the most experienced ones, Dai Jinshan would definitely be able to give her good advice.
Dai Jinshan said, “You’ve just gotten a step up, and you’ve got a bit of fame to your name, but some of the bigger productions are still beyond your reach.”
“If you were to participate in this reality show, then you may be able to strengthen your foundation and improve everyone’s impression of you. Then if you take up a gig after that, you’ll be able to get bigger and better scripts.”
They wanted to take advantage of Ye Fan’s popularity, so why couldn’t they do the same in turn?
Ye Fan was pretty, had good acting skills, and she had proven herself able to attract the masses’ attention. What’s more, Ye Fan had a very good temper and character, so that alone will be able to attract many fans.
Since Dai Jinshan took Ye Fan under her wing, then he was definitely confident in her, especially since she was so capable. He will push Ye Fan up there to become one of the top actresses.
The call was silent for a moment. Then, Dai Jinshan spoke. “Ye Fan. There’s something you should know.”
