Midnight Cinderella - Chapter 47
It could be said that Feng Jing was very angry. He even wanted to go to the Consumers’ Association to complain about Chang Xin. He hung up on Chang Xin. Sure enough, he could just rely on himself.
Since it was useless to kiss Jiang Ran, was it really like Feng Ya what said—that he had to kiss Er Huang?
… No, it was best for him to come up with another way.
Today Qin Fan came to him again and updated him on the film, “Secret.” He informed him about the actress as well. Earlier, there was a debate on the internet concerning who the best candidate for the role of the heroine should be. Once it was finally announced that Yu Yao, a popular young diva, was chosen, the seemingly endless debates on the Internet were dropped.
Some people thought that Yu Yao’s femininity was a mismatch with Feng Jing. After all, Yu Yao, who was known as the “national good girl”, had always been followed for her sweet and lovely style—in short, it was thought that she didn’t have any acting skills. But in fact, Yu Yao could have been regarded as one of the best actresses in “Four Little Divas.”
In order to essentially slap the faces of the netizens who said that Yu Yao did not have any acting skills, the actress’ fans immediately posted her award-winning records on Weibo. They even made a video clip to prove that Yu Yao had acting skills.
However, not very many netizens acknowledged it. The matter was debated on the Internet for several days, and Yu Yao never made a response, up until today, when the Huan Yu, an entertainment company, posted Yu Yao’s makeup photos on its official Weibo.
“Secret” told the story of an ordinary couple who concealed their secrets from each other, by any means necessary. This “ordinary couple” was really very ordinary—the wife was a cashier in a supermarket, and the husband was an informal clerk at a company.
Feng Jing’s make-up photo had already been announced. The heroine had been veiled for a very long time, and she was finally revealed in front of everyone. The makeup photo shut up many of the netizens who questioned Yu Yao’s acting skills.
The woman in the photo was wearing the supermarket’s work uniform, and there was still a work card hanging around her neck. Her long hair was loosely pulled back, and a few stray strands of hair fell on her forehead. There was no heavy makeup and no gorgeous costumes. The person in the photo appeared gloomy in every sense of the word, perhaps even a little pale. But her eyes were not scattered; they seemed to have a slight glow.
Yu Yao’s fans, aside from her diehard admirers, would not be able to immediately recognize that this was a photo of Yu Yao.
It strayed too far from her usual sweet and cute look.
Naturally, when Feng Jing saw the makeup photo, he said to Qin Fan, who sitting next to him, “Yu Yao is very versatile. I really don’t know why her company has to have her take the cute route.”
Feng Jing already knew that the heroine would be played by Yu Yao. He also agreed to work with her because he believed in her acting skills.
Qin Fan smiled and said, “Not everyone is as lucky as you. You are working with a good company and agent.”
Feng Jing: “…”
All right, it was just that he never said this word.
Qin Fan also flipped through the photos of Yu Yao, as he lightly said, “Yu Yao still has great potential to develop further, and it has been estimated that she will change the company in the future.”
Feng Jing raised the eyebrow and asked, “How so? Are you interested in signing with her?”
Qin Fan said, “I will not sign with any star for the time being. If there is a chance of her moving onto another company, there are other agents in the company who can handle that.”
Feng Jing raised his eyebrows and did not reply. He continued to browse the comments on Weibo.
[“I don’t know how to say it, but I think that Huan Yu is biased! Last time, Mo Zhen and Pei Ying’s makeup photos were very beautiful and magnificent. This time, Feng Jing and Yu Yao look like they came from the slum!”]
[“Don’t talk openly if you have never read the original novel.” “The Player,” the first part of the detective series of Anran, started out with attractive characters—a big detective and superstar.” “Secret” is about ordinary people, so how can it be compared with “The Player”? On the contrary, I think that it is more difficult to play ordinary characters.”]
[“You’ve got a good point. But these two sets of makeup photos totally rely on the attractiveness level of the face. If other people were to wear those clothes, the movie would be a total disaster.[covering face.jpg]]
[“The fans of the original novel said that the makeup photos look incredibly close to the way the novel’s characters are described. [dig nose.jpg]”]
[“The babies are relieved. Teacher Xing Xin’s story plus the acting skills and good looks of Feng Jing and Yu Yao, means that the film cannot be too bad! Although the picture is not as gorgeous as the one of “The Player,” the movie should end up just fine! “]
[“Upstairs may have said that the makeup photos accurately depict the novel’s character, but I disagree. The original novel did not say that the couple was this good-looking [eating melon.jpg]]
As soon as Jiang Ran logged on Weibo, she found that “Feng Jing and Yu Yao” landed on the hot search. Her mind was blank for a while and she thought that it must have been gossip about Feng Jing and Yu Yao. After she clicked to read more, she discovered that the buzz was about the makeup photos of the male and female lead of “Secret.”
She didn’t know much about Yu Yao, only that she had a lot of followers on Weibo. In fact, she had only recently begun to pay attention to Feng Jing as well. What a Buddha-like youth! Indeed, after simply relaxing for a short time, she had already begun to fall behind on the latest comments.
The actors indeed looked very homely in their makeup photo, as many netizens had said. However … the original novel described them as such! “The Secret” was not a winner because of gorgeous costumes and special effects, but rather, because it was a delicate and warm story!
However, it was possible that such a movie would not be very eye-catching on the big screen. Most viewers would rather spend money on big movies with little storyline but gorgeous frames. ”Secret” was the type of movie they would usually watch on their computers.
No matter what other people thought, Jiang Ran would definitely go to the cinema to support the movie. Feng Jing and Yu Yao have a great box office appeal. Plus, many enjoyed reading the works of teacher Xing Xin, so the box office sales should not be too bad.
……Surprisingly enough, she began to worry about the box office sales of Feng Jing’s movie.
Jiang Ran wanted to cover her face.
