Chapter 45 – Invulnerable
The filming fell into the spell of non-stop NG, and the atmosphere on the set became more and more heavy. While the audience lost their enthusiasm, the students acting as group performers also bore unnatural expressions.
The line of sight of inquiry was focused on Su Jishi, as if they had already decided that she was just a pretty vase actress.
Fang Xie called an emergency stop and said a few good words to the director, saying that Su Jin had a fever yesterday and had just recovered from her illness. She was a little out of condition.
The director didn’t believe his excuse, but somehow he let go and gave the whole group 20 minutes to rest. Fang Xie quickly took advantage of the time and dragged Su Jishi back to her dressing room.
As soon as he entered the room, Su Jishi’s exploded.
“I told you I can’t act. This might reveal that I’m an impostor!” Su Jishi was really not suitable to be an actress. She couldn’t act and has never been to a systematic acting training class. She didn’t know how to express her feelings with her eyes, body and language.
It is understandable that Su Jishi did not perform well but now, everyone believed that “Su Jin” was really just a vase beauty*, which is a big mistake.
**T/N : Vase beauty is someone who only have looks.
Fang Xie has been a manager for so many years and had more experience than she has at this point.
“Sister Su, don’t worry, in fact you were better than I expected.” Fang Xie first put on a high hat for her. “Most people act stiff in front of the camera during their first time. At least you acted natural and graceful, your hands and feet didn’t look bind up at all.” he added.
Although there are many stars in the entertainment circle, few people could actually act. Especially those idols who only used to singing and dancing, they can’t possibly act, but fans wants to watch them grace dramas and operas and their managers want to make more money, so they pushed them in front of the camera and forced them to act.
As a matter of fact, they all act in the same way—they all act as themselves.
For example, if an idol is a warm-hearted man in real life, then arrange a gentle and noble son for him. If he is playful, then arrange for him to be set up by someone who talks a little bit about the sun … They can easily complete the task without making the audience feel like they are playing by performing themselves in front of the camera.
In fact, the heroine of this movie was well cut for Su Jin, solely based on her real character. It happened that Su Jishi and her sister had completely opposite personalities. It was really too difficult for her to play a weak little white flower.
“Well, Su Jishi, I’ll give you an idea.” Fang Xie explained, “If you can’t act, I want you now to put your own experience on this role…Have you ever been bullied by others? Have you ever felt helpless? Have you ever felt particularly wronged? ”
“No, no,no.” Su Jishi answered firmly, “I have always been in for revenge, hatred repaid wit hatred. When I first went to America, I encountered racial discrimination several times, but I hammered it back to their faces.”
“Er … what about before? Before you went abroad? ”
“Not to mention, I am very popular at school. Boys who wanted to date me found themselves running for the nearby school!”
Fang Xie couldn’t help but touch his forehead. He felt himself starting to have headache.
“Then go on, we don’t have to recall your..erm..classmates. I just want you to recall a helpless and wronged state of mind. Su Jishi, even if you are strong, you can’t have an iron skull as soon as you were born in this world, can you? ”
Su Jishi’s eyebrows slightly wrinkled. “I said I didn’t …” Her words suddenly drifted off.
She seemed to suddenly think of something. The girl’s expression was blank for a moment, as if a strange feeling quickly poured into her body.
Fang Xie has been with both sisters for a long time, and he has always been confident that he can tell them apart—but in this second, the clear line between them had disappeared. Fang Xie was in a daze and suddenly found that the present Su Jishi was too much like her sister.
“You’re right. I was not born invulnerable.”
