Chapter 38 – Financial Backer
Su Jishi gave an earth-shattering sneeze, which frightened Ashan, who was giving his undivided attention in fixing her hair..
“Strange, who is talking about me?” Su Jishi murmured, “It can’t be Jinqing, the little bastard who turned away from home.” Her mouth instantly fell into a frown, wondering whether her sister was living well.
Despite Ashan’s imposing big figure, in fact he was as delicate like a little girl.
He patted his chest in shock, picked up the fallen wig from the ground, and said, “Sister Su! Please be still. Look! The wig have been thrown.”
Su Jinqing had long hair that reached her waist while Su Jishi’s hair was cut short to her shoulders. Their hair had 50 centimeters difference in length.
In this remake of “The Mysterious Notebook”, Ashan designed a new hairstyle for Su Jishi —dividing her hair into two bunches each on her left and right side.
Her real hair and wig were knitted together and braided to ensure that the audience could not see the difference.
In the mirror, Su Jishi was dressed in a light blue dress. When she turned around, the skirt was flying, full of youthful flavor. Her braided hair hung down on her chest. The flowing ribbon was woven into the intricate braids and tied by a light-coloured bow at the tip.
The sun came in through the high ventilation window and fell on her head, as if to coat her with a shining halo.
She didn’t look like the geological dog anymore.
“She” was gentle and demure, “she” was kind-hearted and most of all, “she” was the heroine in the movie.
Su Jishi frowned slightly, and the heroine in the mirror frowned as well…
Where part of her does this character look ugly?”
She felt that the makeup was no different from what she wore on the red carpet before. As long as she smiles, she would definitely attract the attention of ten thousand people.
The appearance of the woman which would play “the demure, ugly girl hated by everyone” was not convincing at all.
As if he heard what she was thinking, Ashan addressed her, “To dress up as an ugly girl, of course, you have to wear some—”
“A protruding teeth! Isn’t it?”
“No, glasses.” Ashan was quick to correct her.
Su Jishi : “…”
Ashan took out a black-framed glasses from the props box and mounted them on the bridge of Su Jishi’s nose.
Thus, the “good-looking” heroine in the mirror became the “good-looking even with black-rimmed glasses” heroine.
Su Jishi asked, “So then? My classmates exclude me, not because I am too ordinary, but because I am too beautiful. Out of envy, they try to talk me out to lower my grades, right?” She asked sarcastically.
Out of the blue, Fang Xie appeared in the dressing room, “Sister Su, you are really humorous.”
Su Jishi then ceased talking and surmised to herself. If she succeeds to keep her secret during the five days of shooting, she would burn incense at her home to keep Fang Xie away!
While Ashan retouched her makeup, she took the time to read the script again.
The first scene to be filmed was in a classroom where the villain “female boss” and her minions would laugh loudly. But when the heroine enters, everyone’s laughter stops abruptly and whispers spreads out, clearly to isolate the heroine.
“By the way, I still don’t know who is playing this “female boss”. Is it someone close to my sister?”
Fang Xie already did his homework, “Don’t worry, she is not. This new actress is named Zhou Jing. She just started her career supported by a financial backer from a mining company. I don’t know if it was a coal or an ore company, but one thing is for sure, he is rich.”
The movie would be released at the Spring Festival. The theme was pleasing and the box office was definitely not bad. The boss behind Zhou Jing, who could let her play such an important role in such a movie that was expected to breathe fire, must have thrown to have a lot of money.
When Su Jishi heard this, she unconsciously thought of Mu Xiulun.
“What a coincidence, the former financial backer of Su Jin is also from a mining company.” she mumbled to herself.
Is thing a thing in the entertainment circle?
