Chapter 1329: Horrific Story of Disfigurement by Sulfuric Acid
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
There was once a sweet and pretty starlet who had debuted in an idol drama with Gu Xingze as a manipulative main supporting character.
Similar to Yun Shishi’s agency then, the starlet’s agency also wanted to increase her popularity by pairing her with the superstar.
The man’s manager naturally rejected this proposal.
In the end, the girl’s agency bought advertisement slots online of their accord, and then they took the liberty of hyping up her publicity by posting suggestive captions and news regarding the two on social media.
This was a wrong move, however.
The character portrayed by the starlet was not appealing. Not taking into account that she was only a supporting cast, her character was sinister and manipulative, who was out to create trouble between the two protagonists. Her role was out to break their relationship.
At that time, the audience was very fond of the two protagonists. Hence, their impression of the characters in the show was brought into real life, especially the antipathy and disgust for the starlet.
The act of riding on his popularity had also antagonized the superstar’s diehard fans.
His studio quickly issued a public statement to clarify this matter, accusing the starlet of not having professional ethics in instigating those speculations and even saying that this matter had negatively impacted his acting career.
The public had an even greater dislike of her as a result.
During a press conference when there was a chance for fans to shake hands with their idols, a hardcore fan of the superstar had taken out a bottle of sulfuric acid and splashed its content on the starlet’s face, cursing, “Shameless b*tch, go to hell!”
She then took out a pen knife and stabbed her fifteen times, resulting in a bloody scene.
The starlet was rushed to the hospital; fortunately, the over-a-dozen stab wounds were shallow.
The most serious attack was that acid splashed on her face.
In her terror, the starlet opened her mouth to scream, and this caused the acid to get into her oral cavity, thereby burning her throat. Her face was horribly disfigured as well.
The starlet left the entertainment industry thereafter and disappeared subsequently.
Still, this matter caused a massive stir in the industry then.
Every star who had acted with the superstar was worried about their safety.
Ever since then, very few stars dared to pair up with him for publicity.
For this very reason, it was hard to differentiate who might be malicious or genuine among the fans.
Therefore, Qin Zhou had repeatedly warned her not to get close to any fans.
She hesitated for a moment but gave in eventually.
The fan was excited when she agreed to her request and rushed up to take a picture with her using her phone.
Seeing her action, the rest of the crowd surged forward as well and surrounded Yun Shishi; they hurled insinuations and difficult questions at her that even the media had trouble asking.
“Yun Shishi, are you really an item with Gu Xingze? Do you like him?”
“The news said the you and the superstar are secretly dating; is that true? If so, then why must you hide the relationship?”
“Even if you like him, does he like you? Are you taking advantage of him by spreading this rumor?” Someone made an unkind speculation in the crowd.
This person’s voice was loud and clear, nearly drowning the mutterings of the crowd.
