Chapter 115: Big Secret! (3)
Manager Xiao froze for a moment. Then, he thought about those rumors he heard in private. He had also considered Xu Chaoran’s identity before, but when the starring list was sent over, Chen Xiuqi didn’t say anything when he saw his name, which meant he agreed. So why was it not OK all of a sudden? Could it be what happened yesterday? That seems possible. Chen Xiuqi cared about Su Yaya very much!
Chen Xiuqi went on, “Change the male lead. Anyone will do. Just not Xu Chaoran.”
“Um…What about Yan Junyi then?” Manager Xiao asked tentatively. At first, they were going to choose one out of the two of them but they just settled with Xu Chaoran in the end.
When Chen Xiuqi heard that name, he frowned and said, “Get another one, he’s no good either.” Then, without waiting for Manager Xiao to reply, he added on, “Do you think a rejected male lead will still come back? Just look for someone else. There’s so many male actors in the entertainment industry, we can do without them.”
He was right. Manager Xiao said, “Got it. I’ll get to it right now.”
The filming for “Flourishing Willow in the Palace” was temporarily suspended, and news of the male lead being changed was quickly released.
The crew announced that the male lead, Xu Chaoran, was injured during filming and had no way to continue the shoot. Fortunately, they just started, so they still had time to change the male lead. Any suitable actors with open slots in their schedule can come for an audition.
Xu Chaoran had also posted on Weibo with roughly the same things as written by the crew. He also wrote that he was injured and had no way to continue the shoot. He had to take a break and he deeply regrets inconveniencing the crew and whatnot.
Xu Chaoran was popular but to say that he was injured and had to rest for a while was detrimental to his career, especially when the length of the break was yet to be determined.
For these stars, what they needed was engagement. If they don’t show up in front of people for long enough, like for maybe ten days or half a month, their fans will slowly calm down. If they don’t show up for a month, two, or maybe even longer, there’ll be a new face there to take their place.
Xu Chaoran’s fans were worried and all of them went to his Weibo to ask him what happened. There were even some fans who went to Xinghui Entertainment to ask about his situation, but nobody got a clear answer out of it.
Very soon, news that Xu Chaoran wanted to withdraw from the entertainment industry broke out. Even the line “Xu Chaoran announces that he would suspend filming and exit the entertainment circle” ended up in hot searches.
When Su Yaya saw that search term, she was resting at home. Since the project was on pause, she didn’t have much to do, so she was brought to the capital by Chen Xiuqi.
In addition, Chen Xiuqi also told someone to get in contact with the producer of Fruit station’s “Beauty and Gourmet”, Sun Lei. He requested her scenes to be moved to the next episode because of her current health issues and told them he would be responsible for the losses. He also arranged for an even bigger name two-tier actress from Shengshi entertainment to take Su Yaya’s place and finally resolved the matter.
Su Yaya had a look through the hot search relating to Xu Chaoran, and although she didn’t know the specifics of the matter, she could guess that this was likely related to Chen Xiuqi.
Suddenly, her heart turned cold. Chen Xiuqi really could take anyone and send them to their deaths anytime he wanted to!
The author has something to say: Su Yaya’s heart turned cold. Chen Xiuqi really could take anyone and send them to their deaths anytime he wanted to!
If one day, he wants to take her…Thinking about this, she shivered.
Chen Xiuqi frowned and took her straight to bed…
