FV: Chapter 163
Qin Wu terminated the contract with the company and Yang Feng was fired. Soon, President Zhang sent a new actor over. He was probably afraid that the producer would be angry so he specially called the producer and coaxed him. Then he let Director Wang pick a new actress.
Director Wang was quite depressed about changing people halfway but he became happy after the audition. This new actress had much better acting skills than Qin Ruyun. The change was good!
Director Wang was satisfied, President Zhang was satisfied and Qin Wu, who was far away at home, was very satisfied.
All parties were satisfied and filming continued as planned.
On this day, Lin Luoqing finally filmed a major scene. It was when Fu Han went undercover to steal intelligence and was almost discovered. He cleverly concealed it and tried to send the information out.
This scene had relatively high requirements for the actors and he had to show Fu Hang’s various emotions successively. In particular, he had to maintain his calm and even his looks of a ruffian, despite being very nervous in his heart. Director Wang specially talked about this scene with Lin Luoqing in detail.
His acting skills were very similar to his personality. He wasn’t too aggressive and he wouldn’t scare people at first. Instead, he did things quietly. They wouldn’t feel he was doing anything but was just like that person.
Fu Han pretended to be casual before stealing intelligence and was cautious when stealing intelligence. He found that someone appeared when he got the information. He was obviously very nervous but he had to pretend to be calm, as if it had nothing to do with him.
He performed every look extremely well.
A person who was serious and extremely reliable one second became a punk chewing gum the next second.
Director Wang asked him to act from different angles several times before he finished filming this scene and prepared to shoot the next scene.
The next scene was also Lin Luoqing’s scene. However, this time the other actor changed back to Zhou Chengxuan, who played his father.
He accidentally met his father while shopping at a roadside store. This was the last time he saw his father. He didn’t know that by the time the mission was over, he had completed the task but sacrificed himself.
Thus, he smiled brightly.
He left the store and teased the cat at the door, glancing at his father from the corner of his eye.
Soon, his father came out with water.
Fu Han was still teasing the cat.
His partner came over and asked him why he was so slow.
Fu Han said, “This cat is quite cute.”
His partner smiled and took the cigarette out of his hand, pulling him back.
While passing by Fu Bin, Fu Han inadvertently bumped into him. He turned around to apologize and Fu Bin said it was fine.
Fu Han smiled. He seemed to want to tease his father and salute him like before, but he didn’t dare to do this action. In the end, he just scratched his head like he was a bit embarrassed.
Once he finished speaking, he turned and left like a gust of wind.
Fu Bin looked at him and didn’t dare to stay any longer.
This was the last time he saw his son alive. Many times afterwards, Fu Bin dreamed back to this afternoon again and again. He saw Fu Han raise a hand and salute him, obviously smiling but it was like he was crying.
Fu Han said, “I’m sorry, Captain Fu.”
He replied in his dream, “It’s okay.”
The afternoon sun was very good. Director Wang shot the realistic scene and then the dream scene respectively.
Zhou Chengxuan was very skillful in acting. In the reality scene, he refrained from giving his son a second look out of fear of arousing the suspicion of others.
In the dream, he stared firmly at his son, wishing to embed his son in his eyes. His eyes were very sad and endless sorrow stretched out like a mountain range.
Lin Luoqing smiled. His smile was very light and not as lively as Fu Han’s usual smile. This time, his smile was more reluctant and relieved.
He couldn’t let go of the world but he accepted that he had left.
He spoke to his father in a generous and sad manner, “I’m sorry, Captain Fu.”
His voice contained a bit of his usual mischievousness.
Only, he could no longer be with his parents.
He heard his father say ‘it’s okay’ in as gentle and tolerant a manner as ever, except that his eyes were full of scars.
He became both a scar and pride engraved in his father’s heart.
Once the scene was filmed, Zhou Chengxuan’s eyes became much gentler when he saw Lin Luoqing.
He patted Lin Luoqing’s shoulder and sighed. “Not bad, Xiao Lin.”
Lin Luoqing looked at him with a smile. “Thank you, Teacher Zhou. I will continue to work hard.”
He finished speaking and turned around, only to be stunned in an instant. Not far away, Ji Yuxiao was sitting in a wheelchair and looking at him.
Why was he here?
Lin Luoqing suddenly became pleasantly surprised. He said a few words to Zhou Chengxuan, said goodbye in a hurry and walked toward Ji Yuxiao. Then his walking turned into running.
He almost couldn’t control it and he didn’t want to control it. He ran in front of Ji Yuxiao and said with a smile, “Why are you here?”
“Didn’t I say I would come to see you this weekend?” Ji Yuxiao watched him run all the way over and thought in his heart that Lin Luoqing hasn’t changed at all. He was still like this and it was exactly the same as when Ji Yuxiao first came to visit the set.
At that time, Lin Luoqing also ran to him in a joyful and undisguised manner, a happy smile on his face.
Lin Luoqing nodded and the joy in his heart spread layer by layer.
He asked, “When did you come?”
“Just now,” Ji Yuxiao answered.
It was also fortunate that he came late or he would’ve fallen asleep again.
Lin Luoqing nodded. He remembered that Ji Yuxiao had fallen asleep the last time he visited the set and looked at Ji Yuxiao in a suspicious manner. It was strange. He didn’t fall asleep this time?
Had he not been tired recently?
“Why are you looking at me like that?” Ji Yuxiao inexplicably felt that there was something in the other person’s eyes.
Lin Luoqing smiled. “No, it’s nothing. Let’s go and eat.”
He finished speaking and started pushing Ji Yuxiao’s wheelchair.
“Are you staying here with me this time or are you staying at a hotel outside?”
“Outside. I’ve already booked it.”
“Oh,” Lin Luoqing replied. “But I can’t accompany you for too long this time. I have scenes tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.”
“It’s okay.” Ji Yuxiao just missed him and brought the children over to see him. Lin Luoqing didn’t need to affect his work because of them.
“Then where do you want to eat?” Lin Luoqing asked him. “Do you want to eat outside or go back to the hotel?”
Ji Yuxiao deliberately sighed. “I would like to eat out with you but if we don’t go back, Xiao Yu and Fei Fei will probably wait for us to come back before eating.”
Lin Luoqing was pleasantly surprised. “You brought Fei Fei and Xiao Yu with you?”
“Yes?” Ji Yuxiao turned to look at him. “Are you happy?”
Lin Luoqing nodded. He also missed his two babies.
“Then let’s go back to the hotel,” he said.
“Yes.” Ji Yuxiao saw the smile on the other person’s face and thought in his heart, ‘I knew you would like it.’
Lin Luoqing talked to him while pushing him into the parking lot.
It was still Xiao Li driving the car. Lin Luoqing saw him following Ji Yuxiao and lowered his head to ask Ji Yuxiao, “Did Luo Jia come?”
“Of course. Who else will watch the children?”
Lin Luoqing thought, ‘…It is really hard on Luo Jia. As a bodyguard and babysitter, one person is better than many people!’
He sat in the car and couldn’t help leaning on Ji Yuxiao. It was a sweet feeling after a period of parting.
“Why didn’t you say anything when you chatted with me last night?” He asked softly.
Ji Yuxiao thought in his heart, ‘Can I still see your surprised expression?’
A shallow smile appeared on his face at the thought. He reached out and took the other person into his arms.
Lin Luoqing looked at him with obvious brilliance in his eyes. Lin Luoqing tilted his head and stared at Ji Yuxiao intently. Then he suddenly approached and kissed him on the chin before leaning back. There was a bit of a teenager’s naughtiness.
“I actually missed you a lot,” he said softly.
“Really? I thought you were busy expanding your harem and had already sent me to the cold palace.”
Lin Luoqing felt amused when he heard these sarcastic words. “What do you want? To return to the harem? Isn’t my harem your harem?”
“Of course not. You are the only one in my harem.”
“It is the same with me.”
“Really?” Ji Yuxiao squinted at him.
Lin Luoqing raised a hand to hold his face and said clearly, “Really. Drink less vinegar. People won’t die if they don’t get jealous.”
“But it will be tasteless.”
Lin Luoqing couldn’t laugh or cry. This person was quite reasonable.
“How are you doing? Are you busy?”
“Fortunately, I’m not that busy. Your father has been looking for me for the past two days.”
“Why did he look for you?” Lin Luoqing was puzzled.
“Of course, it is because of Boyuan.” Ji Yuxiao looked at him. “He gave you such a big bargain. How can he not try to earn some money from me?”
“Then ignore him.”
“How can that be?” Ji Yuxiao was reluctant. “I have already promised to introduce a project to him in a few days.”
“Eh?” Lin Luoqing was puzzled.
Ji Yuxiao straightened his collar. “Once your drama is finished and you come back, you can have multiple titles.”
Lin Luoqing, “????”
“I don’t understand,” he confessed.
“There is no need to understand. Just do as I say when the time comes.”
“Yes.” Lin Luoqing obediently replied and leaned against his shoulder again.
He was leaning against Ji Yuxiao when he suddenly heard WeChat ringing. Lin Luoqing took out his phone and glanced at it. He found that it was the WeChat group of ‘Peaches and Plums Don’t Speak.’
[I just heard from the producer that our drama is going to be aired in advance?]
[No way, so fast?]
[It seems to be like this. It was originally planned to be aired the month after to catch up with the May 1st schedule. However, an actor of Mangosteen TV’s follow-up drama suddenly had bad news explode and it couldn’t air. Therefore, Mangosteen moved our drama forward.]
[If this is the case, the publicity isn’t enough. The publicity hasn’t finished yet, right?]
[So they should be focused on publicity next. It should be next week. I think the publicity team is already working overtime.]
[I feel sorry for the publicity team. I don’t know if this will affect the effect of the publicity?]
[Why did they choose to move us forward to fill the vacancy? What about other dramas?]
[I heard it is because the effect of our early publicity was very good and netizens have high expectations. Thus, we were chosen. [Crying and laughing.jpg].
[The producer said it is okay. There aren’t many dramas that can be used to fill in this schedule. If the word of mouth is good, it is equivalent to monopolizing this schedule. It isn’t bad.]
[I hope the effect is good. After all, everyone has worked so hard.]
There was a lot of discussion in the group.
This group was a large group that consisted of the crew of ‘Peaches and Plums Don’t Speak.’ There were the actors, directors, producers and heads of various departments.
Lin Luoqing read their words and thought, ‘Is it going to be aired so soon?’
It was really unexpected. He didn’t know if the post-production was already done?
He was just thinking this when someone asked this.
Someone immediately replied: [Almost. There are a few final episodes left so we can make it. Even if we can’t make it, the show has to be aired in episodes. We can finish it while it is airing.]
[The later stages of modern dramas are simpler. Costume dramas are more troublesome, especially xianxia and fantasy dramas where special effects need to be added. It seems that it is indeed most suitable to bring up our drama’s airing date.]
[We just need to catch up with the post-production and it will be fine. Don’t affect the quality of the drama because of this.]
[Don’t worry, it won’t happen.]
It was good. In any case, as an actor, he couldn’t control when the drama would be aired. It was a good thing for it to air. It was a bit sudden but the producer had to carefully consider these things. He just needed to watch it when the time came.
Sure enough, once the car arrived at the hotel, Lin Luoqing received a WeChat message from the producer telling him that ‘Peaches and Plums Don’t Speak’ had been moved up and to prepare for the publicity.
Lin Luoqing agreed. [Okay. However, I have been filming recently. If there is an offline promotional event, it will be around ten days before I can go.]
This type of temporary schedule promotion always had problems of conflicting with the actor’s itinerary. Fortunately, Lin Luoqing wasn’t the male or female protagonist. The producer determined that the male and female protagonists had time available now so he didn’t care too much.
[It’s okay. Teacher Lin, this is our responsibility and has nothing to do with you. You just need to cooperate with the crew to conduct the online promotion. You can participate in the offline promotion after you are done.]
[Okay.] Lin Luoqing replied.
He put away his phone and heard Ji Yuxiao ask him, “What happened?”
“Can you guess?”
“I guess it is your work,” Ji Yuxiao said.
Lin Luoqing nodded. “You are smart. The idol drama that I filmed before is about to air.”
“That’s good. If the drama becomes popular then won’t you be popular too?”
Lin Luoqing waved his hand. “How is it that easy? It is the male and female protagonists who will be popular if it is popular. I am just a male supporting role and it is just to show my face and my name in front of everyone.”
“How is that possible?” Ji Yuxiao looked at the other person with the eyes of a lover. “You are so good-looking. How can they not like you when they see you?”
“I’m not the only one who looks good.”
“But you are the only one I like.”
Lin Luoqing was sweetened by the words. “Did you eat sugar? You are speaking so sweetly.”
Ji Yuxiao was very dissatisfied. “How can my honest words be sweet talk? Is it so hard to be an honest person these days?”
Lin Luoqing instantly laughed.
Ji Yuxiao approached and kissed him. “Is it sweet?”
Lin Luoqing was a bit shy. He pursed his lips and said deliberately, “It isn’t sweet.”
“It can be seen that I didn’t eat sugar and that I am telling the truth.”
The smile on Lin Luoqing’s face deepened. He looked at the person in front of him and his heart was overwhelmed. He couldn’t help hugging Ji Yuxiao’s neck.
“I lied to you,” he whispered in Ji Yuxiao’s ear. “It is quite sweet.”
Ji Yuxiao turned his head and kissed the side of Lin Luoqing’s face. Then he whispered, “That is your sweetness.”
Lin Luoqing felt his face burn instantly.
He hugged Ji Yuxiao tightly, silently burying his head in this person’s shoulder. His boyfriend was really good and could always make him happy.
