After recording the program and sending off Gu Weici, Ren Shuhan felt refreshed.
He really did not want to be next to the room where Gu Weici had lived, so after letting Jiang Qingyue set it up as he pleased, he moved his own master bedroom to the next floor, and incidentally also moved Jiang Qingyue’s things there, asking him to continue sleeping next to his room.
“You finally came back, so stay home with me for two days?” Ren Shuhan leaned on the bedroom sofa, watching him moving things around, before taking a glance at his full schedule, sighing, “Only two days, then I’ll have to go back to work.”
Jiang Qingyue turned around and nodded his head, his ponytail swaying a bit: “I’ll ask Wen Xin to adjust the schedule.”
With a hungry look in his eyes, Ren Shuhan lifted a hand and tugged slightly on the ponytail.
Jiang Qingyue: “?”
His hair was tugged back enough that he had to stop in his tracks and lift his chin slightly to look up at Ren Shuhan with astonishment.
“I was wrong,” Ren Shuhan hastily raised his hands in surrender, “I dare not.”
Jiang Qingyue immediately turned back and touched his cheek.
With a “It doesn’t matter”, he hurried away.
When he’d go to school, his young master often sat behind him and tugged at his ponytail… He wondered if the young master remembered?
Ren Shuhan told him this morning that there was a problem with his memory.
Since he met Gu Weici last year, he had amnesia symptoms, and sometimes he even forgot him.
Gu Weici’s stay with Ren Shuhan these months was to help him treat amnesia…
It was a bit strange, and Jiang Qingyue was at loss.
Did the young master actually like Gu Weici during the treatment period?
But now the young master was completely denying it again.
Maybe he was just trying to be brave.
But it’s great to know that the young master had been indifferent towards Jiang Qingyue just because he had amnesia …..
Jiang Qingyue was relieved.
He had thought that the young master had found out about his secret feelings and that as a result he had kept his distance.
Jiang Qingyue’s resolve was simple and clear: Even if the young master liked Gu Weici and only wanted to use him to make Gu Weici jealous, then he’ll stay with the young master and help him achieve his goal.
It didn’t matter if he’d be heartbroken or if he’d have to shed his tears when he’d be alone, all he wanted was the chance to stay with the young master for whatever time he could.
Recently, however, Ren Shuhan had been especially kind to him, and it felt like they were even closer than before.
He always felt like the other was teasing him, euphemistically saying that he was ‘looking for a memory’ and often touching his arm or his hair… Which made Jiang Qingyue embarrassed.
Moreover, the day before Director Chen’s movie recording’s start, Ren Shuhan spoke of these two days of psychological preparation.
Jiang Qingyue accompanied him to Director Chen’s company where other actors were present to discuss the script.
However, it seemed like Gu Weici wasn’t there since he didn’t see him.
When he first returned to China, Wen Xin mentioned it to him once, saying that Gu Weici was the chosen second male lead for the movie.
“Assistant Jiang, right?” Director Chen was surprised by his appearance and took the initiative to greet him.
“You look like Gu …”
When Ren Shuhan gave him a dark glare, Director Chen immediately changed his words: “Gu Qingmeng!”
Jiang Qingyue: “?”
Gu Qingmeng belonged to a famous musical group □□, and he and his teammate Shen Xinghe are both top performers, so they were invited into this cast.
The difference between these two top performers and Gu Weici is that their songs have become popular all over the world, and this time they wanted to go from the music scene to try out filming.
Gu Weici on the other hand wanted to release an album after finishing this film, thus going from being an actor to a singer.
In the original plot, Gu Qingmeng, who was a creative singer, was not so good at filming, and his transition was bound to fail.
Like Qiao Ningning, he was supposed to look bad in comparison to Gu Weici, who was good at anything he did.
Moreover, Shen Xinghe was also supposed to fall in love with Gu Weici just like Qu Chong, and therefore Ren Shuhan would have another rival.
The three of them were even supposed to pursue Gu Weici in a rather messy way out of their desperation to get him.
None of this will happen, simply because Gu Weici didn’t get any role in this movie at all.
His popularity was still a long way from that of these two international singers.
Even though Gu Qingmeng and Shen Xinghe arrived late, complained, fought and scolded each other before coming in, they apologized to everyone for arriving late, but still continued quarreling, each of them blaming the other for wasting time and causing them to be late.
Ren Shuhan still felt…
The working environment this time is much more pleasant than last time~
Ren Shuhan looked at Gu Qingmeng and secretly commented to himself: He’s really good looking, but my little beauty looks even better.
Jiang Qingyue was still puzzled by the Director’s comment and thought: Do I really look like him?
Gu Qingmeng looked feminine in appearance, but he was truly unruly, and he severely pinched Shen Xinghe.
Director Chen smiled and said, “Qingmeng, Xinghe, the way you two get along is like Xiao Wang and Xiao Zhang.”
When he said that, these two people stopped.
Xiao Wang and Xiao Zhang are the main protagonists of this school movie.
The two of them grew up together, played and fought together, and they finally became a couple during their adolescent years.
The film would depict teenagers during a period where they’d usually go through various experimentations, so inevitably, a large amount of shots showing intimate contacts was bound to be filmed, but of course, these contents couldn’t be broadcasted in China.
Director Chen had long thought about it, and he decided to make two cuts.
The original film would be exhibited aboard, while the cut movie that would show ‘brotherly love’ instead would be broadcast in China.
“Actually, since even assistant Jiang could literally pass for Xiao Zhang then…” said Director Chen while touching his chin.
“We have yet to find an actor for the role of Xiao Zhang.
Today, we’ll discuss this matter to find out who is the most suitable for the job.
Moreover, we’ve seen you two during the audition, and I think that this role would suit one of you two very well.”
Gu Qingmeng and Shen Xinghe exchanged a look: “We have never filmed a movie before, so don’t you think it’s inappropriate for any of us to play the second male lead?”
Ren Shuhan, who had the help of the system, naturally knew why they were excusing themselves:
These two are actually secret lovers.
They obviously weren’t mentally prepared to see their other part come up on the set and record an intimate scene.
“In fact, Qingmeng’s personality is quite like Xiao Zhang’s.
He’s quite introverted so you won’t have to go against your nature.The Acting will not be a problem.” Director Chen was strongly trying to convince him.
At the beginning of the audition, Director Chen had intended to let Gu Qingmeng play the second male.
If it hadn’t been for Ren Shuhan’s recommendation of Gu Weici, the role would have been settled long ago, and now it’s just a formality to ask the actor if he wanted to do it.
Except for Ren Shuhan who he couldn’t possibly piss off, he is not to be taunted, so the other actors would have to give in to him.
You have the final say.” Gu Qingmeng nodded.
Shen Xinghe was not very happy: “This is different from what was agreed on at the beginning.”
“Do you want to find a body double for Qingmeng?” Ren Shuhan was considerate, and took advantage of the situation to extend a branch to the two singers.
“There are quite a lot of intimate scenes, after all.”
“Yes, yes,” Shen Xinghe nodded repeatedly.
“Thank you, Ice God.”
It was now Director Chen’s turn to be unhappy: “I can’t just use body doubles in my movie, the final result will not be that good.”
Ren Shuhan grabbed Jiang Qingyue’s wrist and got him to his side: “I’ve even found a stunt double for you.
What are you not satisfied with? You yourself said that Qingmeng looks like Qingyue, and I do think there’s a resemblance, so it’s settled.
Director Chen: ???? ……That’s too much!!
Director Chen: “Ah, then it’s fine….
Thank you, Ice God…”
Jiang Qingyue had always obediently followed his young master, so even until the announcement day, he had no idea that he had been tricked and was quite focused.
Fans are more confused than he is:
“Who? Who is this beautiful woman?”
“It’s the mysterious newcomer who appeared in the preview of “Acting Deacons” !!! Did he shoot anything else? Asking for a link! ”
“I remember those black-hearted fans were blowing their tops because of the casting of the second male! Come and jump out now! I mean it’s the opening ceremony yet we’re seeing no one bringing up that dude! Can’t use the Ice God as a stepping stone anymore?”
“So those fans just caused drama, and the internal staff even spread wrong news, the second male lead is Gu Qingmeng, so they just wanted to use the hype around Gu Weici for their pre-publicity stunt?”
“So funny? Director Chen’s movie needs to use Gu Weici’s popularity? Just look at the actors, Ren Shuhan, Gu Qingmeng, Shen Xinghe, just which one of them isn’t bigger than Gu Weici? That’s so ridiculous.”
“I see the joke clearly.
You say what you want about Ren Shuhan, but those two singers need to focus on singing ok? They’re letting a newcomer make a movie, he’s honestly not as good as our Gu Weici.”
“Excuse me, the Ice God personally discovered your family’s Weici.
His debut was in a double male lead big movie, he immediately shot a variety show after that, yet you still refuse to admit that Ren Shuhan’s the push behind him?”
“Can you stop with this nonsense? You’re all everywhere and just annoying.
Since Director Chen is such a great director, then he can secure his movie’s popularity by himself, can’t he?”
“Ok, sooo who’s the beautiful long-haired young man next to the Ice God? Is the link coming or?”
“Yeah, just give me the name of the great beauty, I don’t care about anything else.”
“Am I the only one who thinks this guy looks a bit like Gu Weici? Surely it’s not that Gu Weici gave up the role of the second male and they had to temporarily find someone that looks like him to make up the numbers, right?”
“What the hell, could this be the truth…”
“God, don’t tell me that with all the resources on that cp, it still ended up being given up upon because others are eccentric and biased? This whole thing hurts so much T T!”
“….You stupid troll… That cp just used the Ice God name to get popular.
How dare you say that others are eccentric? Your grandmother is the one who’s biased! Can you just bring up Gu Weici to Director Chen? He’s a B-tier actor who’d never make it if he doesn’t buy out others!”
“Who looks like who? To be honest, Gu Weici is at most a lower-quality version of this beauty, their temperament are too different.”
“See that one fan up there? Some people go to crazy lengths to smear up Gu Weici’s name.”
“Look how everyone’s going crazy? We don’t even know this beauty’s name, yet there’s so many stirring up things.
You can tell who I’m a fan of, but I still want to learn this person’s name!”
“I know how to find out! Go see the official announcement of “Acting Deacons” and search for a poster featuring him!”
“I just came back from it, there is no poster of our Qingyue.
The official statement was that he was the personal assistant of Ice God, called Jiang Qingyue.
Yes, you didn’t see wrong, the Ice God can casually bring someone to help him out on a set, and he just brought someone like this… I’m withering, he probably doesn’t have many shots.”
“Not in the circle ah …… my heart is aching, I want to see the beauty in the film ah! Director Chen can’t you just get him since he has such a good face?”
“Shit, no wonder he stood so close to the Ice God in the opening ceremony, these two have a matching beauty!”
“So well behaved and good looking, I can’t believe people are saying it’s worse than that old cp.”
“Sisters, get ready for the food, #JiangQinyueRenShuhan#～”
The second those two appeared and started bickering like a married couple, I knew they were either in love with each other and didn’t admit it or were already lovers x3
Also, I hate Directors (or bosses) that cower in front of more powerful people but oppress others ‘below them’… so good on Ren Shuhan for messing with this director (・`ω´・)
And while I find it funny to see fans fight in comments, it was a pain to translate (╥ω╥)
