Chapter 5: Qing — Qing Huan!! You hit the – the Jackpot ah!!
Gao Yun Cheng face flushed red with feelings of shame and anger, he couldn’t help but to swear: “I’m not, then you are!?”
Yesterday only then he knew of Yu Qing Huan this person. For Gao Yun Cheng, the biggest impression Yu Qing Huan gave was robbing his movie role. As for Yu Qing Huan’s personal details, he didn’t know anything at all.
In the entertainment circle, there were artists with high academic qualifications, but not many. That was why Gao Yun Cheng could say it so confidently.
Unexpectedly, his words barely sank in, when Yu Qing Huan nodded his head, “Yup, I am. How do you know?”
The criticism that Gao Yun Cheng was holding in got stuck in his throat, couldn’t go up and couldn’t come down. It made him choked in pain.
This Yu Qing Huan actually really graduated from Hua Da? Impossible, must be lying ba!
He clenched his fist tightly, wanted to say something but his mind was a blank. Searching for half a day also couldn’t spit out a single word and just stood there facing Yu Qing Huan who was calm and collected. Gao Yun Cheng felt humiliated.
Yu Qing Huan admired his posturing for a bit and satisfyingly tugged Yu Xin back to the dormitory.
Yu Xin shockingly maintained his self-restrain outside. The moment he stepped inside the house he started roasting someone with Yu Qing Huan: “What the hell! Only selling his ass! Really think himself as a male lead! I want to see him fry! Never fry until become paste I will change my surname to his!”
[T/N: 跟你姓 (gen ni xing): Change my surname to follow yours: When Chinese got angry and swore SOMETIMES, usually they would issue a challenge and then follow by the phrase ‘Gen Ni Xing’, ‘Change my surname to follow yours). Ex: “If you dare to go in the girl’s toilet, I will change my surname to yours.” Names are their pride. Name represent their heritage so for them to say that; means that either they’re super mad at you or sometimes they’re too impressed by you. There are different ways to interpret this phrase depending on sentences.]
Gao Yun Cheng team dared to obstruct them halfway so openly and without fear, obviously they didn’t put him in their eyes. Thought that he was a mellowed soft persimmon, could pinch just that.
Yu Xin gritted his molar teeth, nearly bleeding from his eyes in hate.
He had mixed in the showbiz for more than 20 years, the people that went in at the same time had already became gold tier manager. Even if they were a little inept, they would still have one or two big flower(big shot) in their hands. Every year they could just pulled out achievements until their hands went limp in exhaustion.
Only him. The most famous under him was just a second rate artist. Not only that, his contract with the company would end this year.
Yu Xin originally already ‘took trouble to heart’(brooding) regarding his situation and now Gao Yun Cheng did this to them, it’s simply putting Yu Xin’s ego under his feet to stomp on and even exerting strength to stomp a few times!
Yu Xin was angry to the point of breathing heavily, his face that always carried a smile turned ashen.
“Ge, you drink some water to calm down.” Yu Qing Huan threw him a bottle of water and unscrewed one to take a sip himself, ‘Don’t make yourself too angry.”
“Ai, you don’t understand.” Yu Xin gulped down half a bottle of icy cold water and gripped his head. He used his strength to scratch his head a few times, after a while he discouragingly breathe out, “I’m so disappointing.”
The showbiz had always been a, to trample someone under their foot and praising others place. Although he was familiar with the rule, Yu Xin still felt that it was difficult to bear in his heart.
“Ge, don’t ah,” Yu Qing Huan walked towards Yu Xin and shifted him. He hugged Yu Xin with good brotherly feelings, “I’m someone who will walk a high-end route, don’t need to compare with that kind of trying to hype but cannot be popular person.”
Yu Xin stared blankly, “What high end?”
“Ge, you listen to my analysis ah.” Yu Qing Huan playfully narrowed his eyes like a fox and started to brainwash Yu Xin, “You see now in the showbiz, what national male god, national goddesses, everything has already been marketed. We market also cannot market anything out. Might as well just don’t do anything...”
Before Yu Qing Huan could finish talking, Yu Xin already shook his head, “No way, no way. So many news this year, if there’s no exposure the audience will forget about you after 3 days.”
Yu Qing Huan was in no rush to refute him, rather he said: “I’m not saying that I don’t want to show my face, but I want to walk another path. You looked at Weibo hot search, all about that who is crying, that who is laughing, or that who is eating potato chips. Don’t talk about others, even when I see it, I also feel it’s tiring and unbearable.”
Saying like that was not wrong actually. Now in the trending search, sometimes when clicked open to see, some of the related queries were detrimental things.
Yu Xin couldn’t help but nodded his head, “You keep talking.”
Yu Qing Huan: “So we don’t need to market. Even though the number of national male god haven’t reach a hundred, but there’s still at least 80. Lacking me also doesn’t matter. Might as well do the opposite. Don’t market, don’t post in Weibo. Keeping a low profile instead, is very unique.
“Sounds...a bit reasonable.” Yu Xin thoughtfully said.
“I just debut, if market too much with no works to show, maybe my route to fame will get wreck. I think it’s better to keep a low profile.”
“Okay then.” Yu Xin gratifyingly looked at his family’s sensible artist and felt the fire in his stomach disappeared, “Make you nurse a grievance.”
“No hard feelings, no hard feelings.” Receiving his family’s manager affectionate looks, Yu Qing Huan leaned on the back of the sofa. Managed to get his way, his lips exposed a smug smile.
He just signed a five years contract with Xing Guang. Managers like Yu Xin had limited artists arranged to him. No matter how good Yu Xin was to Yu Qing Huan, Yu Xin still need to eat. If Yu Qing Huan said that he didn’t want to take on anymore job and straightaway quit, he was afraid that Yu Xin would burst on the spot.
Dealing with the mess so well today couldn’t be any better, Yu Qing Huan didn’t need to offend Yu Xin, and he also didn’t need to think hard about getting exposure to raise to fame. Simply perfect. But speaking about that, he had to thank Gao Yun Cheng for it.
Gao Yun Cheng didn’t receive Yu Qing Huan’s gratefulness. He was nesting inside his own apartment, releasing his anger at his assistant.
“How do you do things? Everyone in Weibo is calling me a chestnut! Say I really know how to hype! Where’s the water army? Where’s the PR? You don’t call them up but show your sullen face and follow me here for what?
[T/N: Chestnut: It is actually a slang for joke.]
Gao Yun Cheng was mad until his nose almost went askew. Obviously in the morning, the topic was still okay and many were praising his handsomeness. So much so that his fan base expanded by tens and thousand of people. But how come after only an hour, the direction of public opinion changed!
Didn’t know who raised up their head first and said his acting skill was non-existent. The real person’s face was full of bruising that he could only continued to resolutely relied on hyping himself. They even listed out his previous entry in the hot search, and ridiculed Gao Yun Cheng wantonly.
Gao Yun Cheng had a fiery temper and was extremely conceited. He always thought that he was the most handsome man in the world and that, the reason why he was not famous because he had talent but no opportunity. Usually when someone said that he was bad, he would calculate for a few days, let alone in such a big scale.
[T/N: calculate: Being calculative to someone; bearing grudge.]
His assistant was scolded until he was fill with fear and trepidation, just like a partridge, he shrank his neck and didn’t dare to move. But he felt endless indignant in his heart.
Clearly Gao Yun Cheng was the one that bought the hot search. When something went wrong, Gao Yun Cheng would blamed him. If not because he was still baring his house load, he would have quit a long time ago! What a horrible person! Served this bastard right that he wasn’t famous! Pei!
He waited until Gao Yun Cheng finally felt tired from scolding him and then dug out his phone. He wanted to see the movement in Weibo and figured out ways to recover public opinions, but he never expected that with one look, he would become dumbfounded.
He didn’t know since when that the topic ‘National Male God’ got diverted from Gao Yun Cheng to another person and this person, was the one that made Gao Yun Cheng felt hatred until his teeth itched, Yu Qing Huan!
This matter was actually quite mysterious. The reason was that an anime blogger saw the ‘Gao Yun Cheng National Male God’ topic and posted in Weibo.
San San Niang De Shui Shou Fu: #Gao Yun Cheng National Male God# Early in the morning when I saw this topic, I almost think that I go to wrong place in Weibo. Gao Yun Cheng is Hua Da what ghost! Our Hua Da have no such person. The only one in our school that can be called Male God is the xiao shi ge(little senior) of journalism department! Attached are the sneak shot of the xiao shi ge [Picture] [Picture]. Gao Yun Cheng’s fans, please don’t curse too offensively. Just saying in passing, xiao shi ge jump two grade in high school and directly participate in the college entrance exam. He finally join our school with the title of Provincial Liberal Art Top Scorer. [Dog Head]
[T/N: San San Niang De Shui Shou Fu: San(Three) San(Three) Niang(Lady’s) Shui Shou(Sailor) Fu(suit).]
In that particular year, there were no shortage of people with good looks, but if you added on high IQ and higher education qualification on top of having really good look, then it was a different case.
In addition to that, the blogger originally already had several hundred thousand fan, so when the post came out in Weibo, it immediately caused an uproar.
“My heaven, how can this xiao ge ge(little brother) still look so handsome wearing school uniform!”
“Ao ao ao~ xiao ge ge so so so handsome *lick lick lick*!”
“This is indeed a national male god! Exactly like the boy of my heart, this old lady’s maiden heart ah.”
“So bloody handsome! Beg blogger for xiao ge ge contact info!”
With more and more comments, the more and more curious people who came in, and then...after they saw Yu Qing Huan’s picture, they never came out again. Thus, the #Gao Yun Cheng National Male God# topic, was rapidly replaced by #Hua Da Uniform Wearing Xiao Shi Ge#
Now in Weibo, there was already countless number of people crying and begging for Yu Qing Huan’s contact info, leaving the blogger no choice but to post once more in Weibo.
San San Niang De Shui Shou Fu: Inexplicably become one time Internet Celebrity, now my head still feels dizzy. Everyone calm down, I also don’t have xiao shi ge(little senior) contact info. Don’t need to even think about coming to our school because xiao shi ge has already graduate this year. Went to journalism department to find out but everyone also don’t know xiao shi ge sign which company. I also hear that his family situation is not too good, so when studying also keep working part-time. Distress ah! QAQ
That post immediately pushed the topic to a new peak.
In a split second, the netizen’s brain hole grew bigger and came up with an ‘Poor genius who was struggling his hardest’ story. One after another calling out in distressed. There were even a group of mother bloggers that directed the topic to their homepage and preparing to use it as an example to educate their child.
Just like that Yu Qing Huan suddenly became famous. It was like sitting in a rocket and deeply shot into the netizen’s heart, so fast that people couldn’t believe it. He didn’t even have a single sunspot.
You say he making hype? He was a splendid graduate of Hua Da and until now his name wasn’t reveal yet, still need to hype?!
Saying the face was not handsome, the picture were P? Just dropped it ba, even pixelating the photo could still see the snow.
[T/N: P : Photoshop]
Such a positive young man trying hard to improve his life, is there any black secret to hide away.
When Yu Xin saw the post in Weibo, it was to the extent that he thought he dreamt that he bought water army!
“What, what is going on?” He held his phone in disbelieved and looked at Yu Qing Huan with his eyes wide opened, Yu Xin still felt dizzy.
Not only they never spent a single penny to buy the hot search, they also managed to slap Gao Yun Cheng’s face. There was actually such a good thing in this world?!
“It’s fake ba.” Yu Qing Huan scrolled his phone screen for a while. He quickly went through the posts in Weibo and was dumbstruck.
Despite his experiences, he would never thought that the topic would went askew like that.
“Ahahahahaha, this is call wicked people will face karma! No zhuo no die!” Yu Xin finally reacted and swept away his previous resentment. He held his phone tightly and fiercely kissed it twice. He side hugged Yu Qing Huan, his heart felt so happy until he almost fly away, “Your luck is so absolute, it’s my first time encountering this kind of thing.”
Yu Qing Huan difficultly squeezed out a smile, “Yeah...”
What was wrong with his rebirth in this lifetime?! Why was everything he experienced so weird?! Obviously he wanted to keep a low profile, but it was like God was opposing him. To the point that he wanted to lay low but couldn’t.
While he was thinking, his right hand was suddenly caught by Yu Xin.
Facing those pair of eyes shown with bright green light, Yu Qing Huan’s heart trembled: “What’s wrong?”
Yu Xin looked at Yu Qing Huan with his eyes burning, “Didn’t you buy lottery ticket yesterday?”
Yu Qing Huan: “Yes, yes ah.”
“Take it out!” Yu Xin was too excited that he spittle out his saliva. His gaze at Yu Qing Huan was like looking at a fortune cat.
“...Here.” Yu Qing Huan groped out the two lottery ticket from the drawer. Before he could fully extended his hand and the ticket was already snatched away by Yu Xin.
“Quickly! Search for this week’s result.”
Yu Qing Huan helplessly waved his hand, simply didn’t take out his phone, “Ge, don’t blindly bustle around, impossible will hit...”
“Oh fuck!” Meanwhile, a world-shaking yell burst out all of a sudden from Yu Xin’s side. “Qing—Qing Huan!! You hit the—the Jackpot ah!!”
