Everyone was clear about one thing, though.
Gu Xingze might have gone off-screen this time due to his illness, but there was a high chance that he would never appear before the audience again!
All the more, Lin Fengtian could not help expressing his pity over this.
Everyone, apart from Yun Shishi, bought the story that her manager had spun for the public. Even the ace director believed that the superstar had taken ill, finding nothing fishy about it.
Meanwhile, the female artist spent the next few days in a blur, being up to her ears in work.
Her hectic schedule kept her busy as she promoted her newly released movie, filmed ‘Lethal Beauty’, updated her Weibo for publicity purposes, and guested on several variety shows. Her timetable was so packed that it hardly left her with any free time.
With fame came a large workload which she was momentarily unaccustomed to.
It turned out that being a celebrity—an overnight sensation, in particular—was such a taxing chore.
She was still in a groggy, sleepy state just a moment ago, but in the next second, she would be dragged to a dressing room to receive a makeover. After a great deal of effort, she presented her glamorous side before the camera and answered the interviewer’s questions with a sunny face.
At the end of the interview, she hardly had time for a breather before her manager whisked her away to her next schedule—this time, to a fashion studio for a magazine photoshoot.
Thereafter, as soon as she was done filming her parts on set in the evening, she would be dragged to do script-reading by her manager.
The woman was dog-tired from having slogged her guts out.
During a break, Qin Zhou slyly asked, “Shishi, how does it feel to become an overnight sensation?”
The artist, being exhausted beyond words, could only roll her eyes and shoot him a glare, which sent him bursting into fits of laughter.
Of course, there were things worthy of joy as well.
For example, the balance in her bank account had finally hit the ten-million mark. Money kept rolling in her account for the following days after her manager clinched her several endorsement deals—two of which had advanced their talent fees on her.
She became the brand ambassador for many products with a few ones ranging from face wash and shampoo to beauty products, and the big ones ranging from luxury brand cars and departmental stores to luxury brands.
Not only that; as a spokesperson for a particular phone brand, she also had to replace her old model with the one she was endorsing for. As per the advertiser’s request, she had to use their company’s cellphone at all times whenever she was in public, even when she was going through the immigration customs. It left her in a state between laughter and tears.
She let out a sigh as she reflected on her life, which had truly been fraught with ups and downs.
On this particular day, Yun Shishi rushed back to the production team for filming a scene she would have to share with Hua Jin. Ever since that spat between them, she had become considerably indifferent to the man.
They only had a handful of scenes with the idol, so there were few chances of them interacting.
Today, she had to act with him. The two bumped into each other in the dressing room.
The actor spotted her as soon as he entered the room. Filled with delight and excitement, he headed straight for the seat beside her and lightly nudged her after settling down. “You haven’t been on set these days. Were you busy with the promotions of your new movie?”
The woman paid him no heed.
Desolation flashed across his eyes as he asked sheepishly, “What’s wrong? Are you still angry with me over that matter?”
She continued ignoring him, however.
Her continued silence got him all panicky, and feelings of remorse surfaced on his face. “Forgive me, alright? I really know I’m in the wrong! I’ll stop teasing and making fun of you!”
Only then did her face soften a little.
Truth be told, after such a long period, her anger toward him had dissipated considerably.
Thinking back, the man was obviously just joking around, and she could blame no one but herself and her naivety for buying his story.
