Chapter 87: That’s Not How You Bully Someone (1)
Was he doing this on purpose? He must be!
During their first meeting, he wanted her to act out the scene where she begged the Emperor for mercy. Was he trying to teach her a lesson and make her lose face?
Su Yaya was unhappy and glanced at Director Zhou. That’s not how you bully someone!
In reality, Director Zhou had this intention as well.
He was very unpleased with Su Yaya. From the bottom of his heart, he disliked her. He disliked her whole being, from top to bottom. There was not a single thing that he liked about her. It had nothing to do with Su Yaya’s appearance. He was just uncomfortable with her.
Originally, he had planned 《Flourishing Palace 》for three years and had found a second female lead who he was very pleased with. He just needed to talk about the specifics with them and sign the contract. Who knew that the investor swapped the second female lead to Su Yaya without even asking for his opinion.
When he found out, he thought that his life’s worth of work had been destroyed. He was so angry that he went over to Sheng Shi Entertainment to find President Xiao. He wanted her to give the second female lead role back to the girl he had chosen but President Xiao looked coldly at him and refused. The two ended up quarreling over this.
President Xiao pointed at his nose and argued, “You and I both can’t make the decision. The big boss wanted to give the role to her. If you have the ability to, go find the big boss and ask to change the person. Don’t come looking for me!”
Zhou Tongguang’s face turned to different shades of red from anger. If only he had the courage to ask find the big boss to change the person. He miserably said, “That is my life’s worth of work…”
Tsk. He mocked him. He couldn’t relate to what he meant by life’s worth of work.
“President Xiao, sorry for disturbing you. We will be going back now. When Yu Hui found out, he rushed over. Feeling the tense atmosphere, he hurriedly rushed over and apologized. Without another word, he started to pull Zhou Tongguang out of the office. “Let’s talk outside.”
Zhou Tongguang and Yu Hui had worked together for numerous years and they were like real brothers. They had a deep connection. Yu Hui pulled him outside and advised him earnestly, “Brother Zhou, I know this drama is very important to you as well as this role, but talking to President Xiao won’t help you at all. The big boss hasd invested 178 million and what objections could you hold against him if he wanted one of his people to act in this drama? You can’t have any opinions. You can only accept this decision. Otherwise, the big boss might be angry and take away the funds. Do you plan on holding onto your play script for another three years? Three years after already waiting for three years. How many three years do you have left to wait in your life?
Zhou Tongguang was speechless.
“Ok, don’t think so much about it.” Yu Hui patted his shoulders and continued, “Actually, I had looked through the girl’s information, the girl who the big boss wanted to place in the drama. Although she didn’t have too much experience in filming scenes and only filmed an online drama, her performance was worth mentioning. She isn’t like those useless girls who only knoew how to glare and pout. She was much better than them at least. You just need to bring out your directing skills and train her. Maybe she will be better than the girl you chose. So, don’t worry. Let’s go back now.”
Yu Hui pulled Zhou Tongguang away. He thought about this for the next few days and finally accepted the situation when he realized he couldn’t change anything.
After that, he released the actors’ information on the official Weibo. Who knew that the moment he released it, a bunch of users started to attack the drama and Su Yaya. In fact, they even attacked him.
